    Would you have any information about Sr. Mary Aurelia? She taught my mom and dad at St. Josaphat's in Detroit, MI. She was a close friend to our family.

    This is to inform you that Harvey Stapleton, class of 1948 from Barbour Hall, passed
    away on May 30, 2017. He attended from third grade until graduation from eighth
    grade after which he attended St. Augustine High School in Kalamazoo, the University
    of Michigan, The University of California, Berkeley where he received his Ph.D in
    Physics. He then taught at the University of Illinois where 25 students received
    their Ph.D degrees under his guidance. I think the good study habits that he said
    were instilled at Barbour Hall really paid off.

    As I approach the end of my teaching career, I am thankful for the start I had as the science instructor at Nazareth College. I have fond memories of my students and my experiences at the College and have always been proud of how well the college took care of our students in the two years we were closing the institution. Thank you to all.

    Death of Lois Roeters Weesies
    Lois was my classmate for Borgess School of Nursing Class of 1966
    Lois died unexpectedly Feb 8, 2015 She was a dear friend, devoted to her family %26 friends. She was religious with great Faith in God %26 his goodness.
    She was older than most of us in our Class of 1966 because she already had a career as a legal secretary but felt the calling to become a nurse; her family relied on her good judgments throughout her years.
    She will always have a special place in my heart as over the last few years we had been able to renew our friendship so I loved it when we could spend time together..... she had a peaceful presence %26 a loving listening ear. She always was "engaged" with life.
    I envision her playing the piano or organ %26 singing in Heaven.
    I miss her Linda Schaner

    Mary (Cabic) Hunt
    I am trying to reach Carol (Cabic) Hunt. I found a 2011 newsletter from your organization on the web. Carol wrote an article for that newsletter but there is no contact information for her. So I am posting to this forum in the hope that someone there knows her address or phone number or a way to get in touch with her.

    The reason I am trying to contact her is that my father (Frank Corridori) I believe was her Godfather. I am doing some genealogy research and my father and Carol's father were apparently boyhood friends and that is perhaps why my father was asked to be Carol's Godfather. I was hoping to speak with Carol to see if she had any recollection of my father or perhaps her father might have told her something about his friendship with my father when they were young men. If anyone knows how to contact her or can pass this message along to her, I'd appreciate it. You can reach me at: Thanks for any help.

  • Theo Mc Cracken (Tuesday, July 30 13 03:38 am EDT)

    lost friend from class of 73
    I am Theo McCracken owner of Dead River Coffee in Marquette Mi. In the early 1970's I was a young soldier in love with a Nazareth student. Her name was at the time Christine Maynard. I am a happy man today in part because of her, and the memories that presist, of sunlite days, azalias in bloom in Augusrta Ga in the spring, of days on the lake and dancing very close are comforting. I have remembered this woman for over 40 years. Please help me reconnect.
