HAPPILY RETIRED Married 1 YES
Hi Everyone....I am looking forward to seeing everyone, some, after 50 years! I have lived in Atlanta for the past 30 years. I used to be the Regional Manager for Design and Training of Custom Decorating for Sears Chicago. I have one daughter who is a commercial finance attorney for a large NYC law firm. She is mother to Sophie who is ten and just recently made her t.v. debut in a skit on "Impractical Jokers" where she demonstrated outragous new toys. She has the Grandma Crazy Gene. In September we were blessed with a grandson Mr. Jack....daughter somehow managed to "clone" her father and Jack has the body of a 4 month old with the face of a 45 year old Mob Boss. I love to cook and I still love driving fast cars but I found out I am a writer....wacky stuff as many of you know from my blog.......Working on a childrens book about my Great Pyrenees "Monty"...... And I know Mrs. Coe, who thought I was a total idiot, is rolling over in her grave....Hope we have a great turnout.... let's start seeing some more people on this site and see you all in July!  Sue.

Montessori Teacher and online Adjunct Prof Biology 101 Divorced 8 YES
Hello Cherished Classmates,
After high school, I went to college – Pfeiffer, NC and Newark State (Kean College/ University) for two years, got married to Tim Brophy from Clark, NJ, stayed at home and raised eight children, four boys -Timothy, Matthew, Daniel, & Benjamin and four girls – Allison, Sarah, Jessica, & Mary. All my children are grown, ranging in ages 31-46. Our two sons are still in Jersey - Matthew has a home in Rahway - whom I enjoy visiting immensely. The third son moved to Denmark with his wife and identical twin girls. My daughters are with me in Virginia along with 13 of my 17 grandchildren as well as my eldest son, Tim, and his family (6 children).
 
In 1992 I went back to college and finished my bachelor’s degree and I began teaching biology, science, and Forensic Science at Rahway High School for 10 years and in Lynchburg for 3 years. I got my Master of Science degree in Biology/Science Education in 2006 while still in Jersey.
    
I moved to Virginia for more space and natural beauty. Even though I love Rahway, I felt like I needed a change. I started visiting Virginia when my parents retired on the Eastern Shore in 1978. We spent our vacations there and started loving Virginia - the shore, the trees, and the mountains.


At present, I am retired from Public School teaching but I have been teaching online classes for five years now – Biology 101 for Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA. Also, I am studying Montessori Teaching by taking a correspondence course with the International Montessori Society. In addition, after interning for two years at local Montessori Schools, I am directing Montessori classes in my Montessori home school. I am exploring moving my school from my home and to set up a Montessori School. I am waiting for the Universe to align and show me where to move. I am also involved in a Children's Ministry called the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (world-wide), a Montessori approach to the religious formation of children emphasizing the essentials of the Christian faith. This chapter of my life is filled with Montessori passions.
    
I love my space here in Lynchburg. The woods are in the back yard. My neighborhood is full of community spirit. The adults get along and help each other. I have girlfriends that I hang out with. The kids are all playing outside together in each other’s yards. Many of them hang out at my house.
A good deal of my time is spent enjoying visits with my daughters and my grandkids whom I baby sit for a lot Mary’s kids – Aidan, Maya, and Molly. Also, I am raising my 15 year old grandson, Isaiah, my daughter Sarah’s child who has difficulties.
 
My life is children. I love them. I pretty much live to serve my family and neighbors as LOVE directs me. My eight children are all happy, talented, and successful. Check out my son Dan’s art work at www.danielbrophy.com  
    
When I have “Patty” time, I love to dance, walk, do Yoga, read, listen to music, and Netflix binge. This is me in Perth Amboy, NJ soon after my grandson Matthew Luke was born seven years ago. 
 
Presently, I am enlightened and seek higher consciousness in all my decisions – the consciousness of LOVE. Many may know what I am talking about. My teachers are Llewellyn Van Lee, Deepok Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, Teal Swan, Louise Hay and many more- all on YouTube for free.
 

    
Peace, Harmony, Laughter, Love,
Patricia Quick Brophy

Retired Married 4 MAYBE
I took a surprise turn from my planned Music Teacher/Glassboro State route into banking, primarily operations, and did the Vice President thing at banks and a data processing servicer. Meanwhile, I had three wonderful sons (five grandkids now!) with wife 1.0 and enjoyed playing music p/t as work pressures and travel permitted. Surprise shock and awe: I lost my vocal cords to cancer in 1990. Fortunately, I had the support and care from my girlfriend, coincidentally an RN; we celebrated our 26th anniversary this year. However, after the bank I worked for merged into another, I couldn't get another job in banking... or anywhere. 

I can't lie, those two nearly simultaneous hits had life-changing impacts that took quite some time to diminish. Writing remotely for PC computer publications and software kept me going for a while, but founding an internet-based, niche music store for fellow upright bass players became my very successful second career. We retired early; my eldest owns and runs the biz now. I've been in Ocean View NJ for almost thirty years now, and we enjoy our family, playing music, sports cars, travel, and enjoy extended stays in New Orleans.

Still can't wrap my head around our ages; do you accept 67??

Retired Married 3 Yes with a guest
I can’t believe 50 years have gone by!   Looking forward to seeing everyone in July.  Here’s my update on the last 50 years:   While in high school, I dated Betty.  We married in 1970 and just celebrated our 47th anniversary. We have 3 grown children, who have wonderful spouses and we are blessed to have 4 fabulous grandchildren.  After 41 years with Verizon, I retired in 2010.  Since then, enjoying lots of traveling ….. a month in Islamorada in the winter, cruises and trips out west including to Montana to see fellow 1968 classmates Carson Davis and Rick Stiffler.    Filling my time with traveling, fishing, more fishing, watching our grandchildren and more fishing!  Life is good!

Retired Asst. Superintendent of Schools Married Yes with a guest
Greetings members of the class of 1968 ! I am really looking forward to seeing you at our 50th class reunion.  We are so fortunate to be able to celebrate this landmark event together. 

After college graduation, I taught, worked  for the NJ State Department of Education, and then served in a number of administrative positions in the Montclair Public Schools. I retired from my Assistant Superintendent position in Montclair in 2007.

My husband Tom and I  were married in 1994. and lived in South Orange for 21 years.  We moved to Yardley, PA three years ago and really love it. Retirement has given me the opportunity to spend time on more creative activities like furniture refinishing, cooking  and gardening.
