Dear Rich,
This is David Schultz. I was, until very recently, married to Harriet Sonja Amchan Schultz, Wakefield Class of 1960.  I bring sad news.  Harriet died just recently, on July 15, 2017, of metastatic breast cancer.  Her death was very quiet, and practically pain-free, which was a blessing.  She fought the cancer for two long years, during which time she/we did many things that she enjoyed.  But eventually the cancer got the better of her.

So, sadly, I need to ask you to remove her from your membership roster.  Feel free to advise your classmates of her untimely death through whatever media you normally use.   I know that Harriet was very enthusiastic about her time at Wakefield. She went to a couple of class reunions, and contributed regularly to your scholarship program.

She will be dearly missed.  Sad regards, David Schultz
