Recipes and Website Reunite Friends
To Whom It May Concern:
I lived in New Orleans during the 1960s, where I met, and became a friend of
Marcia S. Lobman. I moved out of state, and unfortunately Marcia, and I
lost contact. I have tried numerous times to contact her after Hurricane
Katrina, but have always been unsuccessful.
The other evening I "Goggled" her once again, making another attempt to find
her, and came across the story about her on the P.S. duPont Class of '59
website. I was so sorry to read about what happened to her as a result of the
hurricane. I found it interesting that I still have one of her recipes, which
she gave me 40 years ago. Although she may this one memorized, I will attach it
just the same.
I would appreciate your forwarding the recipe, and my contact information to
[Email was forwarded to Marcia, who
has happily made contact once again with Jackie after all those years]
Marcia Silverberg Lobman
Marcia Silverberg Lobman was
living in New Orleans. She had to evacuate prior to Katrina and
went to her daughter's mother-in-law's house in Baton Rouge. To make a long story short - Marcia went back
to her house in New Orleans. She only was able to salvage
her mother's china, silver and crystal. Everything else was gone.
Class Responds to
Marcia's 'Lost' Recipes
"I've lost all of my recipes,"
Marcia told Susan Klein Wright, with whom she has been in contact all
Now, this may seem trivial, but to Marcia, this was important.
Sue felt that if each classmate could send one or two of their
favorite recipes, that Marcia would really appreciate it.
