Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Ainsley Brye Saffell


Hello classmates. It's been fun reading about you on our very good web site.

A few catch up notes. Following my junior year at the University of Minnesota, I worked at a summer camp for under priviledged children in New York. I met my husband there, and he switched his grad school plans to attend the U of M. Because he is a political science professor, we enjoyed a very nice life in several university towns: St Cloud, MN; Ashland, OH; and Ada, OH. (If you have the opportunity to give career advice, give teaching a thumbs up.) I taught a few years and then stayed home to raise our children. Later, I taught adult ed.in a Ford plant, ran and academic skills center in a two year college, and attended grad. school, which enabled me to teach English as a Second Language at the university level. It's wonderful to work with international students, my niche.

Six years ago, we retired and moved to Eugene, Oregon, where our son lives. Tutoring ESL students and attending watercolor classes kept me happy. Christmas 2004, our daughter, who lived in New Mexico, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. September 2004 our daughter and granddaughter moved in with us. (I've noticed that at least two of our classmates have MS and one has ALS.)Since then, our daughter has declined rapidly. Walking is extremely difficult and fatigue is a big factor. Luckily, we are in good health. We are also busier that we expected to be. Our driveway has chalk drawings, we're cleaning up play dough, and making mac n' cheese. Tonight our granddaughter said she hoped we would live to be 200 years old. The optimism of a six year old! We need to be here on a daily basis, so it's doubtful I will attend the reunion.

Classreport is the Epic Smart way to manage your class activities and reunions. We consider this program as a legacy to our classes." 5/22/2014
