Querques Todd, Lucille
I married and divorced but have two wonderful children from that marriage, Christopher, 32 and Tara, 28. I am blessed with two grandchildren, Nicholas, 5 and Madelyn, 2 …. one more on the way in July ‘08. Re-married to a wonderful, kind man only to lose him to cancer five short years later in 2003. I have since retired as Director of Materials Management with Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation and absolutely love retirement. Taking up golf, enjoying my 2nd home in Florida but most importantly, enjoying time spent with family and friends! Life is good!!!! (Last update 12/5/07) 40th Reunion attendee.
First of all, here’s my chance to complain that they put the wrong picture of me in the Yearbook! lol! The last 40 years have been a bumpy ride, for sure! Graduated FDU. Married once (that’s enough!). One son, Don (his Godmother is Judy Jordhoy Battista), who, with wife Stella, blessed me with a beautiful granddaughter on my birthday this past December! Lived in the Hamptons for 20 years, did a good amount of traveling, now back in NJ to be near my family. 30-year career in Purchasing Management – currently “seeking a new opportunity” – anyone looking?

Redner Rushbrook, Robin ([email protected])
After LHS graduation, I spent 2 years studying photography and liberal arts at Endicott Junior College in Massachusetts. I became seriously interested in psychology and transferred to Northwestern University outside Chicago. After graduating with a degree in psychology, I attended Florida State University in Tallahassee, to work and study with one of my Northwestern professors who had relocated. While there, I met my future husband, John Rushbrook. We’ve been together almost 40 years, which just doesn’t seem possible! Once we both got our Ph.D’s, we moved to East Lansing, MI. I was a professor doing research, teaching and publishing in the Psychology Department at Michigan State. John was a psychologist/administrator for the Michigan Department of Corrections and later for Community Mental Health. I really felt at home in the Midwest, but became very disillusioned with academia. So, after 10 years, I left my tenured position and became a stay at home mother to our daughter, Julia. Learning to quilt and continuing my astrology studies balanced my home life. Eventually, I went to Wayne State University and earned a Master’s in Library and Information Science. My second career was as a reference librarian. I loved being around books as well as writing, researching, and working with people. The best part was that library patrons really love the library which makes for a happy work day! I retired about 5 years ago and I do miss it. My husband has also retired and neither of us can understand how we got so old in the “blink of an eye.” Regardless of our ages, retirement is wonderful. I still love the Midwest, quilting and astrology. We often travel to Belize to visit friends who retired there. Lucky us!
My daughter and her husband work for the State Department at the embassy in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Since they both speak Russian, their first posting was to a once Soviet controlled Central Asian country. I will miss the 50th since my daughter is arriving home the same week as the reunion. We had hoped to travel to Tashkent this year, but we might not get there till 2019!
My best wishes to all my past classmates, enjoy each other and the trip down memory lane. (Last update 9/11/18)
Retired recently to Durham, NC after raising our family in Glen Ellyn, IL for the past 34 years. We have two adopted children from Korea, that are now grown. Kate lives in Chicago and Peter, his wife Katie and their new baby, Felicity live outside of Milwaukee WI. During my younger years, I worked for Prentice-Hall Publishing and Addison -Wesley , ending as a Regional Manager of College Textbook Sales. After staying at home with young children, I returned to work, but at The Growing Place Nursery where I did perennial and tree& shrub sales and Landscape Design for over 20 years. In November and December, I worked was a Butterball Turkey Talk Line Lady. Life has been good! (Last update 2/18/18)

I have just completed one full year of retirement after 30.223 years in middle school education — and I haven’t been bored for one second yet. I live in Marietta/East Cobb Georgia with my husband of 31 years. We have moved away four times, but keep yo-yoing back. Bruce, a GA Tech grad and from Ohio originally, is a nuclear engineer who travels and consults wherever the best and most interesting opportunity lies. Our married daughter Alyson (27) is also a GA Tech grad, but decided to put herself through nursing school also and currently works at Emory Hospital. Our son Casey (24) is taking a little longer to find himself. I have not been back to NJ since 1971 when my parents transferred to the South. I appreciate all the work that has been poured into this huge event. The site is amazing! My heart especially goes out to all the family and friends of all the deceased. (Last update 6/21/08)
