This page was inspired by an electronic newsletter that Susan Curran 72 sends out every three months to her classmates in the seventies. It's a great way to find out what has been happening to your friends. With her permission, we have adapted her wonderful concept on this page.

JoAnn "Joey" Kula, Rabat, Morocco

JoAnn "Joey" Kula, mother of Toni '86 and Bret Kula '85, passed away on March 25, 2012. She fought a tough four-month battle with lung complications following a surgery to remove a tumor in her brain.

According to Toni her mother has been described as an unconventional woman who loved life. She became an author this past year with her book "Ticket to Tomorrow" which she co-authored with her best friend.

Instead of a memorial service,
the family spent time
visting Joey's favorite
places, including a walk
on the beach to leave
her name in the sand.

Joey was a retired Foreign Service secretary who joined in 1981. She served in Paris, Ankara, Rabat, Santiago, Riyadh and Asunción. After retiring in 1996, she served as a rehired annuitant in Malawi, Swaziland and Djibouti.
