Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Lorena (Rena) E Totter Barfuss


The summer I graduated from W-L I spent on Cape Cod (Woods Hole) with a friend from Oak Ridge, TN. My family moved to Uruguay for 2 years but I chose to stay in the States and start college. I made my way west to the University of Wyoming where I graduated in '62. I married at the beginning of my sophomore year and my first son was born in Laramie. We moved to Southern California after graduating. My first husband was a EE and worked for Autonetics. I stayed at home to care for twins and 2 more who came along.

After 12 years we parted ways and I found work with an engineering geology firm. I worked for them for almost 4 years, gradually working my way into the field doing seismic safety elements and initial investigations. Unfortunately the work didn't pay enough to support my children. I found a better position with Hughes and doubled my salary in just 2 years. Eventually I became a department manager in the Quality Division. I retired in 1996.

I remarried a widower after all my children left for college and finished raising 4 more children. After they left home and Hughes was sold to Raytheon, we moved to Rhode Island for 2 years. When my husband retired, we relocated to Highland, Utah.

We now have 33 grandchildren and are expecting our first great grandchild in October.

Along the way we have traveled with grandchildren, taking one grandson to Central America and two granddaughters to Europe just last year. I still love photography and occasionally still do weddings. I have been working on family history , am still collecting minerals and try to keep up with all the birthdays of our collective families.
