Notes from '65
Marilyn Niemann Kinsella
St Albert the Great
Each class feels there is something extra special about their group. We came together at a time of turmoil and change both in the Catholic Church and in the politics of our world. So, even though we were steeped in tradition, we also embraced a new world. Many things have happened in the past years since we were students. Our fellow classmates have faced challenges at every turn. I like to think that we, as a group, have faced those challenges with great aplomb due, in a large part, by the four years we shared at the Academy. I wrote two stories about the Academy and presented them at our 25th and 30th reunion. If you would like to read those stories click on Peaks and Valleys and Shards of Memory.

I have a little story you might want to pass on to the other Notre Dame girls.
I went into the Meredith Home (retirement home for the elderly) to take care of a client of mine who resides there. My customer, Fannie, asked me to give a friend of hers who also lives there a haircut. Of course, I said yes. The little lady's name is Dorothy. She is a wisp of a woman, who is 94 years old and walks with the aid of a walker--barely95 pounds and only 5 feet tall with snow-white hair.
Dorothy asked me where I attended school. I told her I grew up in Blessed Sacrament parish and went to the academy of Notre Dame for High School. She then asked what year did I graduate and I told her 1965. She then asked me if I knew her----I took a good hard, long look and asked her, "Are you Mrs. Harbough?" She smiled and said, "Yes, I am." She asked me my maiden name and when I told her Hagelstein, she said, "I remember you." Now whether she actually does remember me or not is totally irrelevant. The point is, I remembered her and all the countless meals she served at N.D.A. to all of us. She worked as a cafeteria worker at our high school for 11 years and served thousands of meals in that time. She looks just as she did then except for the white hair. I told her I would email you and let the girls know she is alive and well and speaks fondly of all of you.
Dorothy also asked me if I remembered some of the nuns and we talked about some of the teachers at that time. She said Sister Conran was obnoxious and treated her badly. I told her I wasn't surprised at that--I had her for homeroom. We had a good laugh.
Anyway, that is my story.
On a personal note, Bill and I are getting married on Fri, November 16th. My maid of honor is
my best friend from Notre Dame days, Lynn (Kreiter) Engers--class of '65.
Thanks, Helen (Hagelstein) (Daab) Scheipeter
