Yes! Attending Reunion

Moved back to SE MA, near Sagamore Cape Cod, from Pennsylvania in 2010, after marriage & family. I am still in private solo medical practice (internal medicine, infectious diseases). I enjoy Wellesley College connections (Well Coll 1978) in addition to visiting my mother in Wellesley Hills. In Plymouth, MA, by the coast, I live near classmates Liz Healy (Dube) 74 and Beth Forte (Nahill) 75 from Wellesley, Sr High Latin classes. Kathy Forte MD is in southern CA, gynecol. My father Joseph E Murray MD died 11/2012, was buried in Edgartown, MA, but a Memorial Stone was dedicated to him and organ transplantation in 2017 in front of the Wellesley Town Hall. Neighbors gathered including Polly Gardner was featured in Wellesley TOWNSMAN. As of 2018, Mother lives still on same home, "Rabbit Rd", WH, where we were raised and big families like ours grew up in the 1960s. I join Mother for Boston Symphony and some Sundays at St Andrew's Church. Centennial Park, Wellesley meadows, was supported by my mother and many others, a gem for dog-walkers, students, and visitors. Most of my relatives including 7 - 10 (when the Costa Ricans visit) of Mother's 14 great grandchildren live in Scituate, MA, where we now gather for most family holidays.

School Story:

Having served on our local School Board in PA, I appreciate the great education we received at Wellesley High School...at a fraction of the costs we ask from today's taxpayers. Sorry to hear about the potential demolition of the old Wellesley High School building. It will be sad to loose the beautiful Stockholm clock tower.

I remember fondly our all night high school parties after each graduation. Best to all. Kathy Murray Leisure, MD. June, 2010, updated Feb 25 2018.

Traveling through Wellesley? Check out the memorial stone to Joseph E Murray MD, dedicated to organ transplantation, aside the top of the driveway in front of the elegant red brick WELLESLEY TOWN HALL, across from the uptown Wellesley Public Library. Dedicated thanks to Jack Morgan and Wellesley selectmen, among others, in late 2017. Details in Wellesley Townsman.

Happy Birthday, Jeff! 1/26/2016, have a great day w family. Tv and media stuff aside, can you still play two sets of tennis? My last visit to NY was to the US Open qualilfying matches (Aug 2015), when I stayed with the mother of my son in law (Celso Miguel Moreira) in Jackson Heights. I drove my mother Virginia Link Murray, also widowed, still in Wellesley, to the Boston Metropolitan Opera Auditions last Sunday, at the NE Conservatory. After raising my family in PA, like the Spilmans who moved to Sandwich, MA, it is nice to be back in the Cape area near family and old friends...and summer ocean swims. Liz Healy (Dube) works at the Plymouth Library, truly a delightful lady still gracious and beautiful. Elizabeth (Beth) Forte Nahill works w her husband's medical practice in the same building as my medical office. Our Latin classmate Kathy Forte MD went to CA practices Ob Gyn. Best wishes in the Big Apple! Kathy Murray Leisure, MD, Plymouth, MA.
