Class Notes of the Month


See what your fellow alumni are up to and share your news.

Roslyn Barry, B.S. ’63, just celebrated her 71st birthday but is happy to report she doesn’t feel it! After getting her master’s in nursing in child psychiatry at NYU in 1966, she married Kevin J. Barry (the best decision of his life). Kevin did a full career (25 years) in the Coast Guard and retired as a captain in charge of legislative affairs. Her nursing degree was a perfect career for a military wife; she practiced in Maine, New Orleans, St. Louis, and here in D.C. When they moved to Virginia in 1985, they opened a Catholic Gift and Book Store, The Paschal Lamb, with two other couples. In November 2012, they celebrated 25 years of being in business. Her husband passed away in April 2009.
