Layton, Utah



What's Up:

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.
 My Occupation:
 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.

 My Family:
 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.

 Favorite Memories:
 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 (?) show.
