Honors, accomplishments and insights from our distinguished faculty


Eileen Luongo O’Donnell ’69

Eileen Luongo O’Donnell ’69 has retired after 40 years of dedicated service to the children and parents of the Dillon Child Study Center. Eileen began at the Dillon Center immediately after her graduation from St. Joseph’s College, and has been an integral part of that special place ever since.

Annette De Salvo Boyle ’68

Annette De Salvo Boyle ’68 has been living in Bermuda for 35 years and does not miss New York at all — especially the snow. She retired from teaching in June 2013 after 32 years, but she is now tutoring seven students in English and math on the middle school level, and teaching CCD at her parish church. Annette encourages her 1968 classmates to look her up if they ever visit Bermuda.

Barbara Vaskis Crapa ’67

Barbara Vaskis Crapa ’67 has two grandson: Baird, 14, and Sebastian, 12.

Magalay Lopez Lohnes ’66

Magalay Lopez Lohnes ’66 is sad to report that her husband of 44 years, Robert C. Lohnes, passed away on March 15 while awaiting a bone marrow transplant. In May, his family and friends took part in a 5K fundraiser at Roosevelt Island for the Icla da Silva Foundation, to raise money for transplants.

Christina McCullagh Cronin ’65

Christina McCullagh Cronin ’65 celebrated the wedding of her daughter, Deirdre, in August 2013. The ceremony was held at Church St. Barnabas in Yonkers, with the reception at the Bronx Zoo. In attendance at the wedding were 1965 classmates, Margaret McCartney Leder, Barbara Sekula Waldron, Maryann Finnerty Zacchea and Margaret Morrow Becht.

Class of 1962

On March 24, Class of 1962 graduates Mary Gallagher Alban, Cathy Davis McKeon, Stephanie Becht Carty and Maureen Coonan Brolly, along with their husbands, met for lunch in Princeton, New Jersey. It was the first time in six years that they were all together. The Albans, now living in Virginia, were visiting family in New Jersey. The McKeons came from their home in Pennsylvania and the Brollys came from New York with the Cartys. It was a lovely opportunity to create more warm memories within treasured friendships.
