Barbara Gillis Weber, ’66


I just stumbled across the website guestbook and I’m so excited to see it up and running. The Class of 1966 will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2016 and now, May of 2015, we are beginning to make plans for a reunion. I am trying to find classmates and would appreciate hearing from anyone from our class (or those who may have been in our class at sometime during our Ladycliff years). My address is: gobarbweb@sbcglobal.net. My maiden name was Barbara Gillis. My husband, Bill, and I have lived in Southern California since we were married in 1967. He retired from Jet Propulsion Laboratory in June after 47 wonderful years there. Now we are enjoying traveling and spoiling our six grandchildren. Thanks for having this website. I will check it frequently as we get our plans together for our 50th reunion!!

Have any Question or Comment?

Hi Mary, I don’t know of any formal site or source for purchasing Ladycliff yearbooks. Yearbooks from just about every year are on display at the Highlands Historical society and museum in Highland Falls, NY, and also at Mount Saint Francis in Peekskill NY, where the Franciscan Missionary Sisters reside. If you would like to explore possibilities further, please feel free to contact me – Linda Best, Ladycliff 72 lindabest@aol.com

Hi,
Wasn’t sure if you advise me. My research in trying to obtain a copy of the book “Ladycliffe Remembered” hasn’t been successful. Do you know where a copy could be attained?
Thank you for kindness in this concern. Charlotte

Hi Charlotte, Thanks for your interest in Ladycliff Remembered. I wrote the book and may have a clean copy or two in my files – I’ll check and get back to you. Linda Best

Ladycliff yearbooks can be viewed at the Highlands Historical Society in Highland Falls. Unfortunately, no mechanism exists for ordering them. Linda Best, 72

I wrote a story about a memory of being at Ladycliff in the 1960’s. It was on the website. I would like to see it. My maiden name is Giordano and I graduated in 1969. My story was about tiding a tandem bike.

Hi Rosemary, Here’s your wonderful story. I apologize for the delay in getting it to you – it took some time to find it in the files for the previous site. Linda Buzzeo Best, LC 72

My Skirt and Tandem Bike Story

My fondest memories involve my friends and their fun-loving adventures. By today’s standards these were pretty tame.

I have to mention that my group usually followed the rules. We were not rebels except in subtle ways. One time two of us were riding a rented tandem bike in Highland Falls. We were not allowed to wear trousers or jeans and this became problematic as our skirts were swirling up over our seats. We quickly returned to the dorm and up the stairs (no elevator) for stealth to change into jeans. Of course, as we were returning down the stairs we ran into our RA who was a nun. Her raised eyebrows said it all. I countered with my skirt and tandem bike story. She looked the other way!

I do believe that our easy going reputation assuaged the situation.
