Married to Ray

No Children

Occupation:
Retired primary school teacher (for 30 years)

Ray and I married in 1968 after completing a BS in 1966 and a Masters in Education in 1967, both from the University of Oregon. Coming to teach in Roseburg in the fall of 1966, I met Ray the day I interviewed. Roseburg has always been my home.

Over the years Ray and I have traveled outside the country, belonged to many organizations and shared the wonders of aging gracefully. My teaching career began and ended in Roseburg. I taught primary grades for over 30 years. During that time I held membership in Alpha Delta Kappa for 35 years. Serving as various officers, I continue to enjoy my membership in Chapter FP of PEO. Our local Y has kept me active over the last 2 years with daily classes to challenge me. My membership at First Presbyterian Church in Roseburg has enabled me to serve in varied positions and on numerous committees. My church continues to be an important part of my life.

We built our present home in 1978 and are slowly rebuilding it over time. People who move frequently are smart. Needless to say, we have deep roots here in the Valley of the Umpqua.

Ray and I have held season tickets to Duck Football games for some time. We have made trips to Maui for the month of February over the last 10 years. Kona is also a favorite spot in November between Duck games.
Every 2 years I connect with my college sorority sisters. This year they all came to the Oregon coast. My local girlfriends bring joy to my life as we travel, share books, and coffee frequently.
