Carol (Wolkerstorfer) Loomis

I was in Belize with Mary Ann from 1963-1964; we both taught at Pallotti High School, which was/is out near the airport. We lived at the Papal Volunteer House on Gabourel Lane; I don't know the address, but it was next door to the other Catholic Girls' High School (I think it was St. Catherine's)...near the prison, and across the street from the Peace Corps house. We also lived together in Milwaukee the following year when Mary Ann began grad school at Marquette and I began teaching. She was in my wedding, and my husband and I were blessed to be at hers. She and Don were godparents for our first child, Anne.
Contact me for any more information you may want.


Carol, that is unbelievably helpful. Thank you so much. I'll definitely get in touch before I go.
