Timely Reunion

Decades ago Beverly Hereford Flake (left) and Charlotte Cassidy Montgomery last saw each other in an unplanned encounter at a shop on Metairie Road. New Orleans being a large city, but a small world, they recently discovered they have family and friends in common. The two Class of 1940 alumnae quickly caught up when they were reunited again this month through these friends.


Beverly has two children, one grandchild and one great-grandchild. Beverly attended Dominican’s 2015 Grandparents’ Day with her grandniece, Laura Youngblood (2016). Charlotte has three children, nine grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. Two granddaughters are Dominican graduates: Alexa Montgomery (1995) and Cassidy Montgomery (2011).
