After graduating from THS, I enrolled in the pioneer class at Mid-America Nazarene College in Olathe, KS. I received my degree in English Education and headed out to Dighton, Ks to be the high school librarian and teach writing and literature classes 2 hours of the day. For those of you who may not be aware, the big town of Dighton is the hub of Lane County and had the only traffic signal in the county right in the middle of town. After one year, I decided I would move back home and live where I wanted to live. If I could find a teaching job, fine - if not I would do something else. I have been doing "something else" ever since. I worked for Montgomery Ward in their Corporate Accounts Payable offices for 15 years, until they decided to move the office to Chicago. I turned down the opportunity to move, because I did not think Montgomery Ward was going to make it. Sure am glad I made that decision. I now work for Kansas City Power & Light and just completed my 20th year in January. I have no plans to retire early, because I enjoy the work and I love the people I work with.
I keep myself very busy, I have been the church treasurer for 13 years, which takes up most of my "spare time". God has been so good to me and has brought many wonderful people into my life. It is a joy to be able to serve Him.
I still find time to travel, which is about my favorite thing to do. I love exploring new places and visiting with family and friends.

Was it only yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?
Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?
Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good byes?
Was it only yesterday we heard of your passing?
And we cried.
