  1. To Leila’s family: I have just learned of Leila’s passing in May, 2015. We were classmates but I don’t remember sharing anything more than Sunday after dinner demitasse in the parlor of Montgomery Hall. I am sure there would have been messages if others had been following Williston Northampton School news.I will share this with the rest of the “girls”. Later in last year, I took on the challenge of being Class Agent for 1952, a fter the post being vacant for many years.
