MICK MARIETTA IS IN A NURSING HOME WHERE HE WILL REMAIN FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AFTER A STROKE. HE WOULD ENJOY PHONE CALLS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TO CHEER HIM UP. His number is 573 885-4500, ask for Mick Marietta. It may be difficult to communicate with him. Mail address is Cuba Manor, 210 Eldon Drive, Cuba, MO 65453.


We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

Classmate Nancy Morrison Loeb gone way too soon.

Here is the obituary for our classmate Nancy E. Morrison, MSW, LCSW
Gone way too soon, I hope we will all stop for a moment and think about her and all the good works she did in her lifetime and remember her fondly. Thank you Pat Moisio Reim Ciapciak for letting us know. May she rest in peace and love.

She was born on Valentine’s Day in 1947 in St. Louis, Missouri and raised there. She received a BA from Grinnell College in Iowa and a Masters in Social Work from Saint Louis University School of Social Service. She moved to San Francisco in 1975 with Peter Loeb and later that year they settled in Pacifica where they lived for the past 44 years.
She was a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and retired from her position as Mediator, San Mateo County Family Court Services after 20 years. Prior to that she was Clinical Director, Family Service Agency of San Mateo County; Program Manager, Children’s Home Society Of California; Residential Treatment Supervisor, Jewish Family and Children’s Services of San Francisco; Program Manager, San Francisco Head Start; Director of Research, St. Louis Drug Abuse Coordinating Council; Child Welfare Worker, St. Louis County Family Service Agency; Public Assistance Worker, St. Louis County Family Services.
She was a member of Pacifica Resource Center Board of Directors, and member of Pacifica Social Justice, Pacifica Housing 4 All, Pacifica Progressive Alliance. She was active in many Pacifica community groups and local political campaigns over the years, including Friends of Pacifica, the Community Organization of Watchdogs (COW), Pacificans for Highway 1 Alternatives, and others.
She was loved by many, both human and animals. She cared for many feral cats, practicing trap, neuter, and release (TNR). She was predeceased by dogs Ruby Begonia, Bernie, and Lucy and by cats too numerous to name. She is survived by her beloved dog Sadie and cats Beauregard, Bunty, and Dixie.
She was preceded in death by her parents Bert and Jane Morrison and by her brother Pete Morrison. She is survived by her husband Peter Loeb, sister Sally Riggs and her husband Tom, nieces Maddie Lee and Emily Riggs, brother Geoff Morrison and his wife Shelley, stepdaughter Lisa Loeb Stanga and her husband Pete and grandchildren Ben and Maggie, and stepson Jeff and his wife Cristen and grandchildren Cady, Connor, Caroline, and Cameron.
