ATLANTA—Attendees at the St. Joseph’s Infirmary Class of 1969 reunion relived old times and made new memories during a celebratory cruise. The former nurses gathered in Tampa, Florida, to kick off the trip. The reunion brought together 15 classmates and one husband.

The five classmates who have died over the years were remembered, including Mandy Donahue MacGregor, Margi Broder Scruggs, Margie Middleton Hall, Tina Dear Hensley and Cheryl O’Donnell Stanton.

The tight-knit group strives to get together at least every year and a half, if not more often. They have met in destinations from Alabama and Georgia to South Carolina.

The group dressed for fun in their nursing caps and white T-shirts during a cruise dinner. The costumes drew other nurses to the group to chat, and even a few patients to share their stories.
