Joan Cohen (Oppenheimer)


My husband Ben Cohen (CHS – 1962) and I are living in the house in Maplewood which we bought 43 years ago, and where we raised our two children (Amy – CHS – 1988) and Dan (CHS-1991).

Ben and I have lived in South Orange and Maplewood for most of our lives, and have happily watched the SOMA community become progressively more and more exciting and interesting.  We are delighted that three of our five grandchildren live in South Orange, and presumably will also go to CHS!
