Yes! Attending Reunion

I was a busy mother involved in my children's activities in sports and school. After the children were raised I went back into the work world and did bookkeeping for different firms. All the while acquiring single family homes to lease. I have had the pleasure of remodeling several homes and interior design of those homes. My husband and I love to travel and have been fortunate to have been to many countries as well as all but 3 states in the United States. I hope to see those states in the next year. My husband and I both like to dance and spend time at our lake property on most weekends. If I were to have dreamed of life after Center I could not have envisioned a better life.

School Story:

I started school in the Center district in the fourth grade at South City View in 1955. I loved the many friends I made and the opportunities to try many different things while at Center. Drama was a favorite and I was fond of the Home economic classes as well. Pep club and all the sporting events were one of the favorite pastimes. I guess Mr Smith who was my History teacher in 7th grade gave me a love of History and I have been able to experience many interesting trips to historic places in the USA.
Bob & I have been to 18 presidential homes and libraries and many national parks. I love to write stories and I credit both Miss Hall in 6th grade as well as Mrs Bricker in 7th for their encouragement. I still think it is important to learn something new everyday.

When you were in HS, what did you want to be when you grew up?

My greatest career choice was to be a home economist and work for Better Crocker. My second choice was to be a mother. I think I fulfilled both of those dreams to some extent. I love to cook and so it for others as well as family. And my best accomplishment was as a mother and spouse.
