Life since 1957: I graduated from Wartburg College with my elementary teaching degree in 1961. Roger and I were married that fall We both taught for the next several years. I retired after eleven years to become a stay-at-home mom to daughters, Karla and Deborah. Roger also retired in 1978, so we could begin farming full time. Guess we never did get far from our country roots. We were busy with the farming, driving the girls to various horse shows around the area so they could compete, and by the early 1990’s, I was working for Blackmore Garden Center in Mason City and Roger had jumped into the political life, first as a County Supervisor and then as our District’s State Representative. (Also, still farming.)
So a lot of our time became occupied with all that involves. Needless to say, our lives took many turns.
Karla and her husband, Ian Geddes, now live near State Center, Iowa after spending several years in Sheridan, Wyoming. She is a Vet Tech for an Animal Clinic in Ankeny, IA. Deb and husband, Bob Bosch, live in Rockford, IA with their two boys Nathaniel (3) and Alex (9mo.) She is a RN at Mercy Hospital in Mason City. They also came back after living out of state for awhile. Not such a bad place after all.
Life Now: Still living on the farm. Am working at the Garden Center which is open from April through December. Enjoy spending time with Grandkids and family. Doing some traveling. Adjusting to the changes in my life since Roger’s death.
