Mahwah Jr-Sr High School's Class of 1963




Hello! I am Gloria Klaschka-Abrams-Pease. I started this directory in 2000 in preparation for a 40th reunion that never happened! Now that plans for our 50th Reunion are in full swing, it's time to shake off the ol' cobb webs and get ready to to finish the job!

With the help of John Schaffer, ZabaSearch.com and unlimited calling, we were able to locate about 90% of our classmates and updated their contact information. When we exhausted all of our resources, Bob Shaver, Joanne Williams Patterson and Maryellen Sworski-Baumann came on board to help 'pick up the crumbs' and helped us locate all of the classmates on the list. Some chose not to respond, but we have accounted for everyone! In our next life we plan to start our own detective agency!


The Senior Class of Sixty Three

Written for the MHS Class of 1963 50th Reunion
By: Gloria Klaschka Pease

It's hard to imagine that 50 years have passed
Since we were Mahwah's Senior graduating Class.
Everything about us has changed since then,
But here we all are, and we’re all seniors again!!!

We look forward to this night with great anticipation,
Expecting to see friends as they were at graduation.
But a room full of strangers is all that we'll see.
Am I in the right place? These people are much older than me!

They all are more round and not quite as tall.
And some have gray hair, if they have any at all.
But, we'll nod hello, even though we're not sure
That we'll even remember if we knew them before.

But with a familiar voice and a name tag or two,
Soon we'll be saying "Oh, I remember you!"
We will embrace one another and recall the past,
Wondering how fifty years flew by so fast!

We were wide-eyed innocents in sixty three,
There was so much to do and so much to see.
The world was all ours to conquer and explore,
The day we left Mahwah High School’s doors.

There were jobs to be found, education to be had,
Some became moms, some became dads.
Some chose to travel many miles away,
For others, the east coast was the place to stay.

Some have accomplished what they set out to do,
Some are still waiting for their dream to come true.
Yet we all succeeded to make it through fifty years
Of life’s many obstacles, challenges and fears.

Some of our classmates won't be with us that night.
Some are battling illness and fighting the fight.
Some have departed this life much too soon.
Yet they’ll be there in spirit with us in that room.

This may be the last time we gather and be,
Mahwah's Senior Class of Sixty three.
So embrace every moment with joy in your heart,
Before it's time that again we must part.

So polish those dentures! Pull up your depends!
And get ready to party like you're eighteen again!


It's Reunion Time! Let's Celebrate!

Taken from Sam's web site:Apparently photographers, and artists are expected to provide some information
about themselves. Very well then, I’ll try to not buck convention, too much. While some paths are easier, and
more conventional, as long as the path is forward, and does no harm, we will have different, and exciting stories
to share. I have jumped out of perfectly good aircraft in the dead of night with darkness obscuring any hope of
seeing where I was about to crash. I have been thrown off a perfectly good boat a mile off shore with small craft
warnings in place, and yes once again, in the dead of night. I have handled high explosives, and yes sometimes
in the dead of night. I have swum in rivers with ice floating by. I have slept in swamps, and 15 feet of snow.
After reading what I just wrote, I want to clearly state for the record I am not now nor have I ever been, a
vampire. I have driven race cars on Laguna Seca, and Sears Point Raceway. I have ridden my Harley across
the United States from the Pacific to the Atlantic and up over the great lakes in Canada. I have owned my
own business, and managed some for others. I have worked in high tech, and low tech. I am uniquely me.
If you look through my work you will quickly see I am somewhat eclectic. Some may say focus young man
focus! But after careful thought I have concluded that I sincerely enjoy the eclectic aspect of my work. It
affords me the diversity, and freedom to pursue any direction that looks interesting, or inspires me.

After graduating from Mahwah High School in 1963, Tom attended the University of Vermont where he studied civil engineering for two years before transferring to Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey where he studied church music, and graduated in 1969 with a triple major in organ performance, choral conducting and composition, and a minor in voice. While a student at WCC, he performed under Leonard Bernstein, Howard Hanson, Sir Arthur Bliss, Leopold Stokowski, William Steinberg, Roger Wagner and Sir Malcolm Sargent, among others. At Westminster, he studied organ with Dr. Donald McDonald and Dr. George Markey, and composition with Warren Martin. His senior organ recital was reviewed as “one of the highlights of our school year.” His private organ teachers were Louise Clary, Earl Goodwin, and Virgil Fox, with whom he studied for six years.

Following his graduation from Westminster, he played the organ for the graduation ceremony of Princeton Theological Seminary at the Princeton University Chapel, after which he immediately departed with the PTS Choir, as their accompanist, under the direction of Dr. David Hugh Jones, on an eight-week tour of the Midwest, Northwest, western Canada, and Alaska.

When he returned from Alaska, Tom moved to Dover, Delaware where he began his duties as Director of Music and Organist of the Wesley United Methodist Church, with a graded music program consisting of fourteen choirs. Under his direction, the church’s high school handbell choir was invited to play Christmas music at the White House in December of 1969. He was the first person to be granted the status of Certified Director of Music in the United Methodist Church by the Peninsula Conference of the United Methodist Church. During his tenure at Wesley Church, which was eventually terminated by a draft notice, he played numerous organ recitals in Delaware and surrounding states. David B. Kozinski of the Wilmington Evening Journal wrote of his last recital, Sunday 11 October 1970, before reporting for active duty in the U. S. Navy:

Thomas L. Mowbray’s organ recital at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church last night was outstanding for its lyricism, sensitivity in colorful registrations, and musical values.... Mowbray celebrated last evening with a searching program that comments poignantly on contemporary questions with great taste and intelligent restraint, thus doubly underlining his own sensitive, creative, young artistry. Bon voyage to a fine, creative musician.

While attending Boot Camp at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, Tom was the Staff Assistant Director of the Bluejacket Choir under the direction of E. D. Sandager. After nearly a year of schooling, he was assigned to the Naval Facility at the NATO Base in Keflavik, Iceland as an Ocean Systems Technician, where he remained for the duration of his tour of duty. He also served as Director of Music and Organist of the NATO Base Chapel, and played several organ recitals in Iceland.

On 08 June 1974, Tom married one of his choir members, Mary Katherine McPherson, who was a music teacher at the NATO Base grammar school. The ceremony was held at the beautiful church by the sea in Gardaholt, Iceland. They honeymooned in England and Scotland, and departed Iceland in August of 1974 to settle in Princeton, New Jersey where Tom attended Princeton Theological Seminary. He received his Master of Divinity degree in 1977 and was ordained that May.

Erickson, Esq. 172 Fifth Avenue #31, Brooklyn, NY 11217 718-398-2601 nancyserickson@earthlink.net I am an attorney, living and working in Brooklyn, NY. I have two very wonderful and talented daughters. Tania is an assistant principal at a school in a small village in Alaska. Most of the residents of the village are native Yupik eskimos. Tania has a daughter who is 4 years old and who is bilingual English and Yupik. They usually visit the “lower 48” in the summer and at Christmas time. Laura is younger and is in her third year of a four-year residency in psychiatry at a hospital in New York City. She visits once a week and we sing together in the Brooklyn Women’s chorus. In 1973 I graduated from law school and began teaching law at New York Law School in 1975. In 1979 I received a Master’s in Law from Yale Law School. I continued to be a law professor for several more years, and taught a Cornell (Ithaca, NY), Ohio State (Columbus, OH) and Seton Hall (Newark, NJ). I taught Family Law, Sex-Based Discrimination, Evidence, Constitutional Law, among others. Then I decided to go back to the practice of law in New York City, where I worked as an attorney for the City of New York, then for the National Center on Women and Family Law, then in private practice, then at Legal Services, specializing in representing battered women in divorce, custody, and child support cases. In 2005, I received a Master’s in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and now I am back in private practice, where I do mostly consulting relating to forensic psychology issues. I have written books and articles on family law, including domestic violence, child support, custody, marital property, attorneys for children, custody evaluations, and adoption. I am currently researching and writing in the area of custody evaluations. My favorite Mahwah High School memories are of my pals Priscilla Shaw, Linda Hurban, and Patricia (Tish) Worrall. Priscilla’s parents were some of my favorite people. Linda moved before we graduated, but we get in touch once in a while. Tish and I sang folk songs back in the day, and we still see each other fairly often. She usually stays at my house when she needs to be in New York City overnight.

We had 3 children. After two not so very nice husbands and a few not that good relationships, I can finely say that for the past 32 years I have been happily single. I wouldn't say that my past relationships have bittered me towards men, but, next to Erma Brombeck, Lorianna Bobbitt is one of my favorite role models! Do to a lack of $upport I have had to wear many hats over the years. I have been 'treading water" most of my adult life and would find my self doing anything that wasn't illegal or immoral just to keep my head above water financially. In addition to hairdressing, I have worked as a chambermaid, fork lift operator, house keeper, custodian, a McDonald's 'do you want fries with that?' counter person, a "Ding Dong Avon Calling" Lady, a Tupperware Demonstrator, a office assistant, and nurses aid/home health aid. After locating some rather hard to find classmates for our reunion, I can now add detective to that list! But of all the jobs I have had over the years, my 27 years as a Home Health Aid has been the most rewarding. I looked upon it as 'on the job' training for when I had to take an early retirement to care for my elderly, vision and hearing impaired father who was battling Alzheimer's. I have had to relocate twenty times with in three states during the past 50 years and am currently residing in Hyde Park NY. I am active in tho Hyde Park UMC where I am chairman of The Inter-generational Activities Committee, and director of Vacation Bible School. Both positions challenge my creativity where I design costumes and scenery and write skits and plan various events. I discovered a flair for poetry in my early thirties and with the the help of a web TV and my sister Barbara, I learned how to create web pages and put music and graphics to my writings. When I am not at the key board working on the MHS Alumni Directories, I watch three of my six grandchildren week days and some weekends. As much as I have enjoyed help plan our 50th reunion and locating and reuniting classmates, I must insist that in the event of a 60th Reunion, everyone must be fitted with a 'tracking device' or pinkie swear that before they change their name, address, phone number, e mail address or die, they must notify me first!

Very well then, I’ll try to not buck convention, too much. While some paths are easier, and more conventional, as long as the path is forward, and does no harm, we will have different, and exciting stories to share. I have jumped out of perfectly good aircraft in the dead of night with darkness obscuring any hope of seeing where I was about to crash. I have been thrown off a perfectly good boat a mile off shore with small craft warnings in place, and yes once again,in the dead of night. I have handled high explosives, and yes sometimes in the dead of night. I have swum in rivers with ice floating by. I have slept in swamps, and 15 feet of snow. After reading what I just wrote, I want to clearly state for the record I am not now nor have I ever been, a vampire. I have driven race cars on Laguna Seca, and Sears Point Raceway. I have ridden my Harley across the United States from the Pacific to the Atlantic and up over the great lakes in Canada. I have owned my own business, and managed some for others. I have worked in high tech and low tech. I am uniquely me.

Dr. Thomas L. Mowbray 324 Lexington Ave PO Box 7 Nashua, IA 50658 641-435-4301 Email: mowbray@q.com tom_mowbray@hotmail.com UPDATED 2/12/2012!! After graduating from Mahwah High School in 1963, Tom attended the University of Vermont where he studied civil engineering for two years before transferring to Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey where he studied church music, and graduated in 1969 with a triple major in organ performance, choral conducting and composition, and a minor in voice. While a student at WCC, he performed under Leonard Bernstein, Howard Hanson, Sir Arthur Bliss, Leopold Stokowski, William Steinberg, Roger Wagner and Sir Malcolm Sargent, among others. At Westminster, he studied organ with Dr. Donald McDonald and Dr. George Markey, and composition with Warren Martin. His senior organ recital was reviewed as “one of the highlights of our school year.” His private organ teachers were Louise Clary, Earl Goodwin, and Virgil Fox, with whom he studied for six years. Following his graduation from Westminster, he played the organ for the graduation ceremony of Princeton Theological Seminary at the Princeton University Chapel, after which he immediately departed with the PTS Choir, as their accompanist, under the direction of Dr. David Hugh Jones, on an eight- week tour of the Midwest, Northwest, western Canada, and Alaska. When he returned from Alaska, Tom moved to Dover, Delaware where he began his duties as Director of Music and Organist of the Wesley United Methodist Church, with a graded music program consisting of fourteen choirs. Under his direction, the church’s high school handbell choir was invited to play Christmas music at the White House in December of 1969. He was the first person to be granted the status of Certified Director of Music in the United Methodist Church by the Peninsula Conference of the United Methodist Church. During his tenure at Wesley Church, which was eventually terminated by a draft notice, he played numerous organ recitals in Delaware and surrounding states. David B. Kozinski of the Wilmington Evening Journal wrote of his last recital, Sunday 11 October 1970, before reporting for active duty in the U. S. Navy: Thomas L. Mowbray’s organ recital at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church last night was outstanding for its lyricism, sensitivity in colorful registrations, and musical values.... Mowbray celebrated last evening with a searching program that comments poignantly on contemporary questions with great taste and intelligent restraint, thus doubly underlining his own sensitive, creative, young artistry. Bon voyage to a fine, creative musician. While attending Boot Camp at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, Tom was the Staff Assistant Director of the Bluejacket Choir under the direction of E. D. Sandager. After nearly a year of schooling , he was assigned to the Naval Facility at the NATO Base in Keflavik, Iceland as an Ocean Systems Technician, where he remained for the duration of his tour of duty. He also served as Director of Music and Organist of the NATO Base Chapel, and played several organ recitals in Iceland. On 08 June 1974, Tom married one of his choir members, Mary Katherine McPherson, who was a music teacher at the NATO Base grammar school. The ceremony was held at the beautiful church by the sea in Gardaholt, Iceland. They honeymooned in England and Scotland, and departed Iceland in August of 1974 to settle in Princeton, New Jersey where Tom attended Princeton Theological Seminary. He received his Master of Divinity degree in 1977 and was ordained that May. While a seminary student, he also served as the seminary’s assistant chapel organist and choir director first under James Litton and then under Dr. Eric Routley. Thomas received his doctorate from the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in 1986. While living in Dubuque he was on the faculty of Highland College in Illinois. Before his retirement in 2001, due to a severe stroke, Tom served churches in New Jersey, Wisconsin and Iowa for more than thirty years as a pastor in both the United Church of Christ and the Nationa l Association of Congregational Christian Churches, and as a Minister of Music in several denominations. He is the author of four books, a writer for professional journals, a published poet and composer, a member of the Sigma Alfa Iota Composers Bureau, and a former member of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers, the Royal School of Church Music, and dean of the Northern Iowa Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.
