Illinois, Nebraska, California, N. Carolina
This is my third time living in Georgia -- and I can't stand the heat!
Marital status: divorced
Spouse's Name: N/A
Children's Names: Carole Wall, Jennifer Deckard, John Barnum
Children's Ages: 42, 39, 36
Information about children:
Carole lives south of Atlanta, Jeni is in Missouri, John is in Tennessee
Infomation about grandchildren:
There are ten now, from age 20 (now in basic training with the National Guard) to almost two.
No choice -- currently at a daycare/preschool parttime and starting a from-home 'research' position with a business directory firm.
Most of my focus has been on my children, so I can't really consider that I've had a 'career.' I've stayed close to education, but have worked retail, fast food, & admin at a new Bridgestone plant in SC.
Only stateside, from one address to another, and visiting the kids wherever they lived.
Interests, hobbies, and pastimes:
Besides Bible studies, I still love my textile arts -- sewing, knitting, cross-stitch, and I'm trying to start quilting.
I'm still here!! Life has knocked me down several times through the years, but God pulls me back up again to remind me that He's not through with me yet.
Favorite memory of MHS:
Overall atmosphere -- I've always loved learning, and having friends around made it more fun.
Biggest lesson learned:
I can't make it through without God's help. He's had a plan for me all along; once I surrender to that plan, I know I can weather any storm.
Closest friends in 1962:
I hate to admit it, but I haven't kept in contact with anyone from Midland. My older sister has done a tremendous job of that, but not me. My folks moved to Wisconsin & my sisters to California. That pulled me away from Midland, except for rare visits with Fern & Russ Christenson, my first-born's godparents.
