90 Mailbox Overflows

Margo (Ball) and John MacQuarrie made it to the MSU game last year. It was their 20th anniversary weekend and they were fortunate enough to spend a few minutes with Father Hesburgh. While he is past being able to say Mass to renew vows, he gave Margo and John a family blessing. John says, “Our boys can’t really comprehend who Father Ted is, and his significance to ND and beyond, but they got a sense for it by being in his office. Conde Rice was with Father Ted before us, so we got a chance to see her as well.” John is living in Charlotte NC, so is excited about the ACC move. All visitors are welcome, John says. Tim Flood’s indie rock band, Eve’s Twin Lover, is working on a new CD, which will be released this summer. You’ll find the band playing throughout their hometown of Chicago. Amy (Dunlap) and Steve Dickas met up with a few fellow former Holy Cross Hogs and their wives for the BYU game in November, including Pete Shuler, David Bianchi, Jon Miki and Jim Ferneau. Peter Dumon has been living in Hinsdale IL for 20 years with his wife Julie and their four children. Ty, 21, is a junior at U of Denver.

Peter would be happy to provide an ND Class of 1990 discount at the Kinzie Hotel in downtown Chicago to anyone who contacts him. Jilanne (Klaus) Barnes is in St. Louis and appeared in two films that were released to DVD this year. One was a lead role with Eric Roberts in 23 Minutes to Sunrise, and she had a smaller part in Fatal Call. Jilanne’s kids (Summer, 9, Grace, 7, and RJ, 6) are healthy and happy and beginning to act in commercials. Debbie (Goodrich) ’91 and Stephen Shulkowski relocated to New Jersey after stints in West Chester PA and Strasbourg, France. He has been with Mars, Inc. for 18 years and is the IT director for Mars Chocolate. Debbie is home raising the kids: Stephanie, 17, Natalie, 13, Max, 12, Aurelie, 10, Quinn, 9, Victoria, 5 and Jackson, 3. She is also the youth girl’s lacrosse director in town. Stephen is doing his part to create future ND fans, bringing some of the kids to the Temple game, the Pinstripe Bowl and to the ND soccer national championship win over Maryland. James “Jamie” Brandt is in his sixth year of teaching at St. Joseph Academy, a K-12 Catholic school in San Marcos CA, north of San Diego. Jamie is the director of campus ministry and lead high school teacher, teaching calculus, geometry, a 9th grade religion class and civics/economics. He’s single and living in Oceanside CA in a house he’s owned for about 20 years. Also, Jamie is still in the Navy Reserve, drilling once a month at Third Fleet Headquarters in Point Loma, and last May, he reached 20 years of service. Jamie misses his ND families so if you’re in the San Diego area, please stop by for dinner and a glass of wine. John Hall lives in St. Louis with wife Mary and kids Michael, 13, and Julia, 10. John practices business and corporate bankruptcy law as a partner at Lewis Rice, LC.

Frank Moreno has been able to join them on occasion. Thanks to Kristin (Sosnowski) Georgi for the following update from BP: “In November, BP girls gathered for our 23rd annual Chickfest at my home in San Clemente CA.

91 Inspiring Mission

Greetings Class of ’91ers. I hope your summers were exciting and that we are, at the time of this publication, enjoying an undefeated season on the new FieldTurf. I recently heard from Matthew Gries, who reports that he just got back from an eye-opening and inspiring mission trip with his 15-year-old daughter, Sarah, to Comayagua, Honduras, where they worked with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal to build a mud house for a widow and her three disabled children. Matthew was excited to discover that one of the Brothers, Brother Gabriel Emmanuel, is a graduate of Notre Dame – Robert Monahan ’07. Brother Gabriel is returning to New York this fall to enter the seminary to become a priest. Matthew asks for prayers for Brother Gabriel and for all the Franciscan Friars and the poor that they serve. Anne Dinshah is back with her third book, Powerful Vegan Messages. She was kind enough to send me a copy of her new book, and let’s just say that I think about eating steak differently now. In all seriousness, Anne is the editor of American Vegan magazine and the vice president of the American Vegan Society. She is an expert and authority on the lifestyle. Congratulations, Anne, on the new book. That’s all for this issue. Have a great autumn and Go Irish! — John Romanelli, MD; jrndmd@comcast.net

I was in New York City in June with my family and we saw Bernie Lau and his family. We had a wonderful dinner in Chinatown and dessert in Little Italy filled with lots of laughs and great stories. Bernie is settling into his new position as general counsel at NOHMs Technologies and he is now working from home. Bernie’s wife Singmay has a busy internal medicine practice in Brooklyn. Their sons, Will, 14, and Charlie, 12, had just completed their school year as well as Chinese school. I was impressed because they were thinking about college already.

92 Classmates Connecting

Last issue’s column provided enough detail to bring classmates together overseas. Rev. Christopher Cox, CSC, ran into Kathy (Wolff) Julien in Spain. Kathy had walked with her husband, Jacques, from their home in France, spending seven weeks on the Camino. She approached Chris’ father in an elevator in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, asking if he knew a “Chris Cox.” Once the connection was made they shared their travel stories and memories about ND. Nick Costello is president of HEAL (Home to Enhance African Life), a new non-profit organization serving orphans and widows in Nigeria. Visit HealNigeria.org to learn more.
Lori Corirossi ’92SMC and Scott Hazen celebrated their 20th anniversary on July 23. Three days later, they took a family vacation with their children, Courtney, 17, Emily, 14, and Brennan, 10, to visit the best man in their wedding, Kevin Cannon, and his family in North Carolina. While there, they had a surprise visit from their Lafayette Square roommate, Mike Kamradt. Speaking of reunions, Kristin (Gafvert) Hammerschmitt stopped in Chicago during her USA summer tour and had a minireunion with PW girls: Audrey (Welling) Scott, Jenn (Karaffa) Pae, Denise (Walters) Zubrod, Allison (Freiss) Eckles, Laura (Mollach) Soller and Carrie (Coit) Hodgson along with Walsh girls Carol Ruff and Wendy Shields. Spotted in the news: Pete Loftus writes about the pharmaceutical industry and healthcare issues for the Wall Street Journal, so keep an eye out for his scoops.

93 Quarter of a Century Mark

Far be it for me to point out that we are aging, gracefully, but as I started to compile the fall class notes, I couldn’t help but reminisce about how we arrived on campus 25 years ago to begin our Domer experience. And now, years later, Mike Griffin, known to most classmates simply as Whitey, became a Triple Domer after receiving his PhD in theology. It was a convenient walk across the street for doctoral classes since he taught the last 10 years at Holy Cross College, where he will remain and move onto tenure track status. He loves South Bend, where he and his wife Catherine (Gehred) ’98 have two boys, Benedict, 4, and Basil, 1, who, despite their names, are far from holy little monks. Andrea Armento Stahlman was promoted to news director of WLKY-TV (CBS TV) in Louisville KY. She is the only female to hold this position at any television station in Louisville. She has been employed by WLKY-TV since graduation, beginning her journey as an intern. Andrea married Brian Stahlman in 2000, and they have three boys: Zachary, 12, Nicholas, 10, and Lucas, 18 months. She was honored as a “Face of Louisville.” Be sure to check out her interview: http://styleblueprint.com/louisville/everyday/andrea-stahlman-faces-louisville/. Mary (Rodgers) and Tony Gentine celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary, which Mary finds really hard to believe. She has practiced family medicine in Sheboygan WI for 14 years. Tony left his job of teaching high school US history after 13 years to pursue a master’s and eventually doctorate in history. He started attending Marquette U in August. Their eldest daughter, Maggie, is a freshman at Notre Dame, which is even harder for Mary and Tony to believe. What a surreal experience they had returning to campus in August as parents. Their other children are Emma, a senior in high school, Joseph, a freshman, and Anne, a seventh grader. Megan and David Certo are delighted to report the safe arrival of their fourth child, Gabriel. Their friend Matt Bomberger made the trip from his new job in Ireland to be godfather at Gabriel’s baptism, which was held the day after the Notre Dame-Purdue game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Regrettably, Gabriel’s godmother, Michelle (Hayden) Bomberger ’94 could not attend in person for the joyous occasion. The Phoenix Catholic Sun picked up an article on David from his Archdiocesan paper: http://www.catholicsun.org/2014/07/12/faith-influences-one-of-a-kind-court-in-helping-offenders-change-lives/. David was happy that the reporter noticed his “Judge Like a Champion Today” sign in the stairwell leading down to his courtroom. David was also featured in the March on-line newsletter from the ND Alumni Association: http://mynotredame.nd.edu/s/1210/myND/interior2col.aspx?sid=1210&gid=1&pgid=18491. Please keep Laura Williams Ernst and her family in your thoughts and prayers. Laura’s husband Jim died Feb. 21 after a sudden viral attack on his heart, myocarditis. They have five kids: daughters aged 16 and 12 and sons 10, 6, and 3. Their last family photo was at the Grotto last June for the Reunion. Jim was from Mishawaka and loved ND even though he ended up a Boilermaker. They went to the ND/Purdue game last September and Laura will always cherish that fun evening. Laura’s mother moved in with Laura to help, and Laura couldn’t be more grateful. Despite the hole in her heart, Laura is moving forward and hopes to begin nursing school in a couple years. She’s had an army of friends, family and neighbors taking care of her family and with God’s grace they will continue to have a happy family life. — Anne Marie (Krauza) Yuhas; 1524 W.

Dan was recently named the director of the U of Portland’s new institute for moral formation and applied ethics. He spent the previous 10 years working in the university’s athletic department. Ryan Kerrigan is planning his trip back for the Stanford game after 12 years in Newport Beach CA and trying to raise three grounded “Midwestern” kids. He was asked to serve on the advisory board of the Kellogg Institute a few years back, which is a great honor and a great chance to get back to campus every year. They are neighbors with Jeff Bocan and Janet Hathaway and see classmates Beth (Krappman) and Gerard Marra who are living in Pasadena, as godparents of their youngest, as well as godparents Tom and Jenny Sullivan ’96 and Jen and Mike Carroll ’96. There are many great Notre Dame stories over the years, but one he recalls fondly is attending the ordination of Joe Rodgers ’93 at the Vatican, followed the next day by Father Joe baptizing their baby Charlie at Santa Maria Maggiore. It was an incredible life experience. Also, as a reminder, start making plans to attend our 20-year Reunion from June 4 to 7, 2015.

96MBA From the Mailbag

After almost 17 years in financial services (and the pleasure and stress of corporate America), Sue Mason left her job as a managing director of recruiting at JPMorgan Chase to start her own business. She sold her home in Chicago and moved to St. Joseph MI where she bought an existing women’s clothing business. The business will officially reopen as “Friends by Design” next March. Sue writes that this is “a whole new experience for me to be an entrepreneur, but I am excited for the new challenge. I welcome all to visit me at the store next year and would happily extend the family discount to everyone.” Sue is one of at least three entrepreneurs from our class whose businesses are based in Michigan. Marc Williams works with his dad as owners of Williams Buildings construction. Rob Kowalewski owns several restaurants in Grand Rapids and has plans for more properties in the future. Our three Michigan entrepreneurs met up for lunch over the summer at a golf course pub and enjoyed trading business stories, catching up, laughing about getting older and just reconnecting. There is still no word on whether Marc lost yet another round of credit card roulette and got stuck with the entire lunch bill. As for yours truly, I’m now the associate director of communications for Delbarton School here in New Jersey.

We enjoyed running into Will and Maggie McCarthy at the Huddle, and visiting with Erin ’97 and Tim Kavanagh in Chicago. If you have an opportunity to go to the 20-year Reunion in 2019, I highly recommend it. It is a great reminder of how special it is to be part of the Notre Dame family. Go Irish. — Christy (Hayes) King; christyking@alumni.nd.edu
