The guests included son Robert Renwick ’52 (whose son is Stephen’83), daughters Jean Renwick Schenck and Dorothy Renwick Wurlitzer, daughter-in-law Margery Renwick, and son Erle Renwick Jr. “She’s in almost perfect health,” reports Robert. “She manages to finish all the puzzles in the newspaper each day, and reads more now that she has a new magnifying glass lamp.”
