Single Again 4
I can't believe it's been 50 years!  Are we really that old?

I'm retired from real estate loans; but keep busy with genealogy, reading, water aerobics,
church, community service, an occasional class at WWCC, the adult literacy program, and of course my family (4 children and 15 grandchildren.)  Son, Alan is a physical therapist; daughter, Cathy teaches in Paraguay; daughter, Lynne home schools her children; and daughter, Rebecca is a realtor.

I have a done a little traveling - Hawaii, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico and across the US a few times.  I would like to do more, especially a trip to Paraguay.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again.

Retired RN Widowed 2
Children:  1 Son & 1 Daughter
Grandchildren:  1 Grandson & 2 Granddaughters
Activities/Hobbies:  Gardening, Interior Decorating

After high school graduation I entered Deaconess Hospital School of Nursing in Spokane and attended Whitworth College graduating in 1962, receiving my RN degree and specializing in pediatrics. Shortly after graduation I married Ronald Batson who had just been discharged from the U.S. Air Force where he was a member of the Canine Corp. Air Police.
 
We spent our first year in Seattle and from 1963 – 68 we lived in Salinas,m California where I was charge nurse of a large pediatric unit and later office nurse for two pediatricians. Ron graduated from Hartnell College and Moler Barber College in San Jose.
 
We left California in 1968 and traveled the U.S. for several months after Ron appeared as an extra in the movie “Paint Your Wagon.”
 
In early 1969 we returned to make our home in Walla Walla where I helped set up the first cardiac care unit at Walla Walla General Hospital and Ron became a postal clerk.
 
We adopted siblings Robert and Tina in 1971 at ages 2-1/2 and 1 year. At that time I became a full time stay-at-home mom utilizing my pediatric skills to care for our two special needs children.
 
Another goal was realized when we purchased our country home and small acreage in 1975 where we raised our own organic foods and livestock.
 
In the early 8’s we opened Lavender Hill Herb Farm and gift shop. We grew over 100 different culinary and medicinal herbs and sold plants as well as fresh cut and dried herbs and spices. I gave tours of our formal gardens and lectures on the use of herbs as well.
 
In 1989, our children now grown, we closed the business to begin a more relaxed lifestyle. This was short lived when we became legal guardians of our first granddaughter in 1991. She was a busy two year old – so parenting continued until recently.
 
In 1997 we left our home of 21 years and moved back to town after Ron was diagnosed with a genetic fatal disease, amyloidosis. He chose quality of life over having a liver and heart transplant. We enjoyed the many nearby activities and events at nearby Whitman College, down town and our great neighborhood. He passed to a better place in early 2003; my best friend and forever love.
 
Since his passing I have enjoyed my three grandchildren, some traveling, have published six poems and am still passionate about gardening. My yard was on the city hospice garden tour a few years back.
 
The past couple of years have been a bit rocky health wise so I have had to slow down somewhat due to severe benign vertigo and painful arthritis which has required several surgeries on my shoulders and hands.
 
I regret not being able to attend this gathering but had committed much earlier to a beach vacation with my family.

Hi classmates.  I remember after the last assembly of our senior year, I was walking home wondering what was going to happen to me in the future.  I had an acceptance to WSC(U) and a Pell grant and thought I wanted to be a German teacher.  Well.....that summer I met Gary Heisey (Class of 57) - he had a cool yellow and black '56 Chevy and sexy eyes and so there went my college plans.  My Dad was glad - he wanted me to get a Government job which I did.  Went to work for the Corps of Engineers in Walla Walla.  Gary and I had 2 children - Kim, 48, who lives in Walla Walla and Kevin, 36, who lives in Surprise, AZ.  Kim has 2 daughters and Kevin has 2 daughters and 2 sons.  After 17 years, Gary and I divorced and for the next 11 years I was single.  I attended WWCC as much as possible and was involved in church and children's activities.  In 1988 on a visit to Anchorage, AK to visit my sister Glenda (Class of 61) I met my husband Clayton.  We have been married over 20 years now.  He has 4 boys and a grandson.  Alaska is a beautiful place and I have had a good life here.  I do miss my Walla Walla family and friends though and visit at least once a year.  I retired from the Alaska District Corps of Engineers in 1994.  After retirement I worked in a greenhouse/gift shop, then as a gardener for the Municipality of Anchorage for 3 years and then one Christmas season for the Post Office.  The Post Office job was enough for me so now I'm retired for good.  My interests are gardening, singing (I sing in the church choir and the annual  community Messiah performance), going to Curves, being at our lake cabin and of course traveling to see the grandchildren.    I also volunteer at a food bank and do other volunteering.  Am looking forward to attending the reunion so see you there!
