Leading The Good Life in two locations (Philadelphia and coastal Alabama) seems to suit us just fine. Most of the time in Philadelphia; winter in Alabama. Despite extensive travel, I didn't get to Paris until June 2015. Paris was exactly what everyone said it is. No other city like it. I wrote a lengthy journal if anyone wants to read it -- contact me via email:

After HPHS:
Lawrence Univ. = B.A. English Lit., 1963.
Northwestern Univ. = MBA Mktg. & Finance, 1978.
1963-65 = Nat'l. College of Educ. (Evanston), Admissions Counselor.
1966-83 = Corporate communications and marketing career in Chicago at Illinois Bell Tele., Nat'l. Safety Council, Nat'l. Assoc. of Realtors, Chicago Title & Trust Co.
1983 = relocated to Philadelphia as freelance Business Writer (for banks, law firms and accounting and consulting firms) until retirement in 2007.
Currently: I write travelogues and poetry. I've self-published 5 volumes of my poems, which were written in the last 30 years.
My husband is Paul Neuwirth, CPA, retired partner of Grant Thornton, LLP. We have dual citizenship: One is our city townhome in Philadelphia; the other is our second home in a golf course community in Gulf Shores, Alabama (for the winter months). Paul's 3 sons have produced seven grandsons, the oldest of whom (Oren) is studying in Israel (2019-2020). We've attended five grandson Bar Mitvahs so far. Last of seven will be 2023. Paul and I plan to "Age in Place" in Philly as long as we can.
I am now a WHITE-HAIRED lady, having decided at age 70 to see what color my hair really is.
Update 2019: I still weigh the same and go to the gym 3X a week for an hour. Hoping to visit the Norwegian fjords in 2020. I remain in irregular contact with HPHS friends Jean Altman Dunn, Cynthia Jacob and Malika (Julie Thomas).

School Story:

One summer shortly after graduating from HPHS, I had one date with Eugene Altman, who arrived on a motorcycle (to my parents' horror), which I happily boarded. Off we went, from Deerfield to HP. Later that same evening, Gene took me back home -- in his father's Jaguar, much to my parents' relief.
Apparently, I became an Honorary Member of the Cross-Country Team during lunch hour at the HPHS cafeteria. I happily traded mock insults with "the boys," including John Farr, Jimmy Phelan, Hal March, and Mike Andersen.
Not to be exclusive, I also recall nooontime sparring gently with Tom Pulver (my then-boyfriend) and Sam Zell, whom I thought was destined to become a rabbi.
My usual lunchtime companions were Cynthia Jacob, Jean Altman, Julie Thomas, and Pat Rau. At a nearby table, were other favorites: Karen Cheli, Connie Linari, Pam Lenzi, Mary Rose and others from the neighborhood.
As "Deerfield Girls," we were not eagerly embraced by the Highland Park girls, but the Highwood Girls were our buddies. The tri-level social strata were clearly delineated at the time -- teen psychology. Today, we're all equal -- at least, in my Advance Adult view.

Don, that is a lovely comment about Sharon: "Kind, pretty and smart." That is my recall from Deerfield Grammar School, too. Now we know how accomplished she was in her post-grad lifetime. Rosalie Ward Delaney Neuwirth in Philadelphia, PA.

Happy 81, Marcy. It may sound like Old Folk, but we are NOT. Your paintings of birds are phenomenal. I'll go look at your others after posting this. Happy Second Life to you, Delaney (Rosalie).

Hello, Sandy. Yesterday, Donna Gher. and I had an email exchange, in which we both remembered HPHS Homeroom fondly. It was filled with some of the most outstanding girls in our class -- including YOU! I remember you as so poised and at ease with yourself and so very pleasant to EVERYONE. I'm betting that my recall still describes you. Anyway, just want you to know that you were on my mind. I was surprised that Donna remembered me because I was quite recessive and quiet and serious in those years. Wishing you well and engaged in the simple pleasures of our peer group, Delaney (Rosalie Ward Delaney Neuwirth). PS: Belated happy #81. Can we really be that old? YES! (but it doesn't feel like it. Yet.)

Happy upcoming 81st B-Day, John. May your wheels keep spinning in the right direction.

Well, Steve, how does it feel to be the YOUNGEST 80-year-old among all of us?
Wishing you safe and healthy, your older classmate, Delaney. PS: Does Pam have a cake for you with 80 candles on it? What a blow-out!

Welcome to the exclusive "Club 80" in a week, Jimmy. Is it time to update your HPHS class profile? Remembering you fondly from Deerfield Grammar School, Rosalie Ward Delaney Neuwirth.

Happy Day After, Sandy. I remember your beautiful face and sandy-colored hair from Homeroom at HPHS. Only about 65 years ago! Cheers to all of us turning 80 this year.

Never mind the pandemic; eat CAKE!

Wishing you Happy 79th, John! (I'll be joining your age group in July.) Hey, we're still under age 80. Celebrate our youthfulness -- please! Wishing you and Kathy a good day and a big cake, Delaney.

I want to be the first classmate to wish you "Happy 79th Birthday" in advance, Sally. In your latest posted photo, you look young and carefree and in charge of your life. How many people can say to you: "I remember when you were one of my most favorite classmates in Kindergarten at Deerfield Grammar School"? LOL, Delaney.
