I married Gary Sanders right out of high school and had a child in early 1964. Later that year we moved to Hollywood where he pursued a career in music and played in the rock band, JJ Cale. I was a stay-at-home mom, then got a job as an administrative assistant. We later divorced and I remarried and had three more children. In 1972, I moved to Northern California and built a house in the country near the coast at Mendocino. In 1978 I moved to Sonoma County and remarried. Tom and I have been together for 33 years and we now have 7 beautiful granddaughters. Our kids and families are spread out and live in Westport, MA, Baltimore, Chicago, and the West Coast.
I worked as a bookkeeper for a number of companies, later becoming a business partner with my husband in a retail enterprise in Petaluma, California. We sold gourmet kitchen items, imported antiques from Europe, operated an espresso bar, and ran a design consulting business for 23 years.
In 2003 we moved to the tiny village of New Harmony in Indiana. Our town, established in 1824, has a population of 800, and a rich cultural heritage, having been the site of one of the first communal experiments in the US. There are many venues for music, a library & museum, and several art galleries. The town draws travelers from all over the world due to its historical significance, and also attracts scholars, writers, artists, and musicians. We have annual festivals of theater, music, and regional celebrations. We are busy here running a small antiques business and enjoy attending auctions and estate sales. It’s a quiet life, yet rich in opportunities to pursue our artistic endeavors. We are both involved in the community and it has been a wonderful way to integrate into this diverse society. My interests are gardening, reading, and home design.
It has been a huge change to move back to the Midwest after spending almost 40 years living in California, but I couldn’t be happier being close to my roots and making our home here in the lovely geography of Southern Indiana.

"This is the supreme class reunion program out there. Those other sites charge you for almost everything you use or research.
