I have been retired a year and it is great. My husband and I
live in Layton, Utah, just north of Salt Lake City. We keep busy
with church activities, keeping up with children and grandchildren,
going to the gym, and diving into genealogy and family history.
After high school, I went to Brigham Young University, graduated, then
taught school in Provo, Utah for three years. We then lived a year
on the Navajo Reservation while my husband was doing research for
his masterís thesis. When we left there, during the next sixteen
years we lived in Houston , Louisiana, and Montana. I taught at a
Catholic school outside of New Orleans for one year, but during most
of those years I had fun being a stay-at-home mom to my five
children. In 1990 we moved to Utah where I went to graduate school,
learned Braille, and began twenty four years of teaching blind
students. I loved it and just retired a year ago.
I have five children, four step-children, twenty-five grandchildren and
one great-grandchild. They are living in Salt Lake, Little Rock,
Washington D.C., Chicago, and Switzerland.
My best memories are of the great friends I had. I loved football games
and bonfires. I remember going with a group of WRHS students to
interview the Denver civil rights leaders. I remember Miss Lynen's
drama class, Mr. Truglio's Spanish classes and the Home Ec. fashion
