Comments:

I went to Southern Utah University for 3 years then came home and graduated from Weber State in 1972 in Sociology/Social Work. I married in 1973 in Salt Lake. We had our two children then moved to Francis in Summit County. My husband worked for UDOT and traveled all over the state. When my children started school I went to work for South Summit School District teaching Head Start and SPED preschool children. My husband joined the South Summit Volunteer Fire Dept. and was the fire chief for 18 years. We became active in the Utah State Firemen's Association. My husband is a past president and I have held other offices in the auxiliary. After going through breast cancer with mastectomy, chemo & radiation in 1998 I got to do everything all over again in 2016.

My aunt is the second woman in history to become an admiral. I have traveled with her and my sisters to the Navy nurse corp reunions including to Washington DC for their 100 year anniversary.

I also get together with my college sorority sisters about once a year.

School Story:

My best memories are working on the newspaper at CHS, attending all the sports, journalism clinics, and representing CHS for KSL.

Previous CHS Class Reunions You Attended:

20 Year

Previously Lived In:

Tooele
Sunset
Cedar City
Salt Lake City
West Valley City
Francis
Oakley

How Do You Spend Your Free Time:

I watch grandkids, scrapbooking, working on the computer, golfing, bowling, watching the Chicago Cubs baseball team and spending summers at our place at Bear Lake.

What Would We be Surprised to Know About You:

I was Freshman secretary, Sigma Pi sweetheart, Western Week Queen, finalist for Freshman of the Year, president of a sorority and I can't remember what all else I did at SUU. You can read it in "Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges" 1970-1971.

What Is On Your "Bucket List"?

I no longer have a bucket list since my husband passed away. After two bouts of cancer I just live from day to day.

Most Embarrassing Moment:

That was a lifetime ago. I know I did some stupid things in high school but I guess they were so embarrassing I put them totally out of my mind.

Any Words of Wisdom:

Be sure to let those close to you know that you love them. You never know when it is your time or theirs to go.

God is in control so give everything to him.

I use my knuckles to figure out how many days are in the month all the time and people laugh at me. I didn't remember who showed that to me. Thanks Belva for reminding me!

I went to Annalee's memorial. Very sad situation. When I visited with her at our 41st class reunion I suspected Annalee wasn't happy with her life. I tried to reconnect with her but it just didn't happen. Those who were in our lives long ago stay in our hearts forever.

Hi Jo! It has been a long time! My husband and I use to go to St George all the time golfing but he passed away in 2012. I do tag a long with my sister or friends when they go down to golf but I am usually the odd man out. I have a sorority sister that lives in Sun City. Is that where you are? Debbie and Ross Miller!
