Joyce at our 50th Reunion |
Happily married to Bob Bowden (Who knew I would make such a good decision at age 19!!)
Bob and I went to OSU Freshman year, got married the next year, I put him through OSU, he put me through PSU. I taught in Lake Oswego for 35 years, taking some time off for raising kids as Bob did a lot of traveling in his career. I loved being in that city and had a very happy career while there. We had good years of water skiing, snow skiing, tennis.
I didn’t think I’d love Charbonneau like my home with the lake, but you know….there are so many wonderful friends out here, so much to do. I even have learned to like to golf….hey…I’m not saying I am any good, I just love being outside with fun people. I have dance aerobics 3 times a week, dance team, golf, art festival, women’s groups. So, no rust happening here!
So, we may not recognize each other when we see each other at the reunion, but we were never supposed to stay 17!!!!
