I married Gene Linke (Wa-Hi Class of ’58) on August 28, 1960. I worked for the W W Corps of Engineers while Gene went to Jr. College, Tri Cities and Walla Walla College and worked part time.
 
In 1962 we moved to Seattle, the year of the Seattle World’s Fair. It was fun and we had lots of company. I worked at Ft. Lawton and then for the Fed. Government while Gene worked at Boeing and attended the U of Washington. We moved to Beaverton, OR in 1968 and Gene worked for FHA Portland as an appraiser and our son Brian was born that year.
 
We moved to Spokane in 1971 – the year of Spokane’s Expo and again had fun and lots of company. We bought a large house built in 1908 on Manito Blvd and enjoyed many years of restoring the house and grounds. Our daughter, Beth, was born that year. We rented the house for a short time while we moved to Anchorage in 1983 during a slump in real estate-related jobs in Spokane. It was a great experience and we have fond memories of Alaska.
 
Shortly after our return Gene had emergency quadruple by-pass surgery. It was an anxious and stressful time. In later years we separated and later yet, divorced. Gene and our son lived together, both appraising in the Tri Cities. Gene later became too ill to work so kept house while Brian appraised – by then in Pendleton, OR. He passed away of a heart attack in 1996. A sad time for the whole family. I lived in a small home, still in the Manito Park area, as did our daughter, Beth, until she went to college.
 
Several weeks ago after living in the same neighborhood for 40 years, my family moved me to Springfield, OR. My son lives in McMinnville, OR and is a county appraiser. His 11 year old twins, Brooke and Bailey, live in Salem with their Mother. My daughter Beth and family live in Eugene just five minutes away from me. She received her Masters in Micro-Biology and is currently a stay-at-home Mom. My son-in-law is an emergency doctor at Sacred Heart Hospital in Springfield. They have two little girls – Abby 5 and Brinna 2. My foster son Sam lives and works in Portland.

idahorose54@hotmail.com Retired - Office Mg. Chamber of Commerce Married 2 2012-07-11 22:27:40
Spouse:  Marvin
Children:  1 Son and 1 Daughter
Grandchildren:  2 Grandsons
Activities/Hobbies:  Order of the Eastern Star, camping, cake decorating, gardening

I can hardly believe it has been 50 years since we all walked down the aisle ending our life as high school students and into the world as adults.
 
Following graduation I attended EWC for a year followed by working two years at Saxon’s Sewing Center. There is such a thing called money that colleges require, and since I was paying my own way, I had to work between my years in college. Following my years at Saxon’s I went to CBC, then to WSU. Money ran out again and it was back to work, this time for American Oil Company, then for the City of Walla Walla as Secretary for Director of Finance/City Clerk.
 
At a Grange Christmas Party in 1964 I met someone I had probably passed many times in the halls at Wa-Hi but had no idea who he was – Marvin Gerking. We were married in 1966. In 1968 our son, Allan, was born and I was fortunate enough to be a “stay-at-home” mom.
 
Marvin worked for the Forest Service so promotions required moving. In 1969 we moved to Heppner, Oregon, and were there for four years. During that time our daughter, Julie, was born. In 1973 we moved to Sitka, Alaska and I worked in the school district as a paraprofessional. In 1977 we moved to our present home in Blanchard, ID. That was a “temporary” move but we are still here.
 
Shortly after moving here I went to work as the Secretary of our church. I was there 14 years when Marv’s job was phased out and we were notified we would be moving again – this time to southern California. That was not an option for us as we did not want to leave the northwest. There was an opening at a place called Amboy, WA, (at the base of Mt. St. Helens). We moved there for a year, then it was retirement time for Marv and we moved back home. When we returned home I went to work as Office Manager of the Newport-Oldtown Chamber of Commerce for ten years. In 2006 I retired and have been so busy I don’t know when I ever had time to work.
 
We have two grandsons, Cory, age 11 and Trevor, age 7 who live only eight miles from us. We are fortunate that they live close enough for us to see them frequently.
 
Hobbies and Activities: While in Heppner I began decorating cakes. Through the years that became almost a full time job but have since given it up. I specialized in wedding cakes. I also served as Wedding Coordinator of our church. We square danced for many years before the knees said that was enough. We are both very active in The Order of the Eastern Star. A Masonic related organization. We have a 5th-wheel travel trailer and enjoy camping with our NCT (National Camping Travelers) group. We own three acres on the Pend Oreille River and like to take the 5th wheel there just to relax, watch the grass grow and the water flow by. I collect angels and at times feel the house might take wing and fly for all the angels I have.
 
An evening with a glass of wine and playing cards with good friends - what more can a person ask for? Life is Good.
