Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Mater's, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

50th Class Reunion ~ Anita

Lora Anita Zorn
After graduation Anita received her B.S. degree from St. Mary's Dominican College, New Orleans, LA (Major English, Minor Education) and her Masters of Theological Studies from Spring Hill College, Mobile, AL. She also did post graduate work in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.

What she enjoys doing most now is reading, attending her Knit Wit group (they crochet blankets for children in distress), PAK - Omega Chapter meetings, teaching Adult Faith Formation Classes for the Diocese of Jackson, and being a member of the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) team at St. Michael. She is currently a member of the Sodality and becoming a member of Mercy Associates.

Her favorite teachers were: First Grade: Sister Cyrena who was so kind and loving; Eighth Grade: Sister Mary John who made coming to school interesting and fun; High School: Sister Mary Rita who always challenged us to think. She also have fond memories of Sister Mary Elise and Sister Mary Annunciata.

A few things about her life: She married James (Jimmy) Hossley on May 29, 1965. They have 3 children and 7 grandchildren--2 boys and 5 girls. She taught school full time for 24 1/2 years and part time for 2 years. She is retired now from Vicksburg Catholic School (St. Al/St. Francis) where she taught 21 years full time and 2 years part time.

Her grandchildren bring her great joy. She babysits her daughter Margaret's 3 girls on a regular basis. They are no longer babies but the two youngest--Elise and Anne Stewart (7 and 8) still require attention. Margaret's oldest, Ashleigh, is 13. They all attend VCS. She enjoys her other grandchildren whenever she can. Marcia's three (Rob-7, Meg-5, Mary Elizabeth-3) live in Shreveport, LA now and are moving to North Carolina at the end of the school year. Matt's son James is 5 and attends preschool, and they live in Vicksburg also. Anita and her husband, James, (Jimmy) resides in Vicksburg, MS. E-mail:
