Leaving University of Iowa with an education degree, I taught school in Northwood, Iowa
where I helped Matt Bell get married. Then I moved on to Denver and Colorado Springs. Of course I had
the desire for adventure so I went to Herbornseelbach, Germany to teach. I had a great experience traveling,
shopping but not doing a lot of teaching. Then I taught in Clear Lake for a year waiting for my household
goods and a VW Beetle to arrive from Germany.
I married Jim that year and we were off to L.A.
I taught in the inner city. Was I glad when Jim had his physical therapy degree in-hand so we could
wave goodbye to Los Angles and never look back. We moved to Vancouver, Washington and settled down,
adopted two great kids, Jeff and Molly. Everything was normal for a while until Mt. St. Helens erupted;
it was a great view from our backyard and to this day still puts on the occasional show for us.
continued to teach until I reached fourty-four years or one thousand three hundred and twenty kids, then
I retired. I love retirement except weekends no longer have the same meaning to me. Now I spend most
of my time reading, playing bridge, lunching with friends and spending a lot of time volunteering for
the church. We have a four-year-old granddaughter who is the love of our life and who consumes a lot
of our time.
Classmates I have kept in touch with... Kitzi, Dixie, Mary Jo, Nancy, Pat, Mick Bob
G and Matt at Christmas time.
