Children: 5 Sons and 1 Daughter
Grandchildren: 6 Grandsons and 4 Granddaughters
Activities/Hobbies: Quilting, fabric artist, reading, family activities, gardening
During the 50 years since we graduated, I didn't become a diplomat, a teacher, write a novel or find the cure for the common cold. But I've had an interesting life.
I attended Central Washington College (now CWSU) on the pay as you go plan. Work one year, attend college, work, college. During the third "work" I met and married my husband, Ben. His job transferred us to Spokane, WA. We've lived here ever since.
We've raised six children. We have ten grandchildren. Some grown, some in college, a couple in the Service, three in grade or high school. Our big family is a lot of fun.
After the children were in school, I managed an eye doctor's office for several years and became an Optometric Technician. I was a "Domestic Engineer" when Ben retired in 1989.
We've traveled. Driving, by air, train or RV to 23 of the 50 states. We've been to Europe, Canada many times, and Mexico. Unfortunately, we no longer travel any great distance from home because Ben's health is not good.
I've been quilting since the early 70's. Ben claims I have more fabric than Hancock's. I enjoy reading. Family activities keep me busy.
I no longer have family living in Walla Walla, but have wonderful memories of growing up there. I try to visit often, sometimes with my sister, Pat (class of '51) and/or my brother Jack (class of '55). I'm looking forward to this special class reunion.

After high school I joined the Air Force and became an aircraft mechanic, stationed at Richards-Gebaur AFB. I met and married Pat while stationed there and just before being sent to Okinawa for 18 months.
Our oldest daughter, Linda, was born while I was stationed in Okinawa. In 1965, our son Bob was born in Kansas City, Missouri, Pat’s home. We moved to Seattle and I went to work for Boeing as an aircraft mechanic. In 1969 our youngest child, Lisa, was born and at the same time I was laid off from Boeing. That was the year they said, “Will the last person to leave Seattle please turn out the lights?”
I spent the next two years driving at Greyhound. When Federal Way School District needed drivers, I moved there, eventually becoming a driver trainer. In 1978 I moved to Issaquah School District as Transportation Supervisor and on to Bellevue School District where I became Transportation Manager.
After 26 years in the school system, I retired in 1997. The next seven years Pat and I worked the fall crush at Chehalem and Sineann Wineries in Oregon. It was a lot of fun and very hard work.
In 2005 we decided to try our hand as RV Caravan leaders and signed up with Adverture Caravans. We were “Tailgunners” first, and then leaders, called “Wagonmasters”. We traveled to Mexico, Alaska, and the Canadian Maritimes, spending four years with the company.
