Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Jean Gutru Pier



As of 2015

As another reunion approaches, it is time to update my bio. Actually, not much has changed in the past 5 years. Bob and I still enjoy living on the Olympic Peninsula, we now have 4 active grandchildren, and we continue to have “adventures” traveling the world. We finished India after 5 months spread over 3 trips, driving Argentina, local buses in Colombia, campering in Alaska, touring Ethiopia, and crossing Russia by train. These trips average about 6 weeks as we try to spend enough time experiencing a country so we do not have to go back as there is just not enough time left to revisit places. My favorite adventures were hiking up Erta Ale, an active volcano in the Afar region of Ethiopia, and camping near a bubbling lava lake and hitch-hiking with an Ice Road Trucker to the north slope of Alaska. I write blogs about our trips and have had a few articles on India published.

Our next journey will be a 2 month journey on the Silk Road from Iran, through four of the Stans, and on to western China. This should include some camel trips and camping in yurts—neither of which are Bob’s favorite activities but he is a good sport—so far!

Last year (2014), I witnessed a major family milestone—my mother turned 100 and she is still going strong—well fairly strong. She continues to enjoy life and the stock market and lives independently in a senior community near St Augustine, FL. Well, this is great for her but nobody prepared me for coping with a “mother” at age 73. This is an ongoing challenge as she still has hopes of shaping me up and turning me into a lady.

As of 2010

After AHS, I attended Indiana University and Columbia University, receiving a BA in art. Unfortunately, no one bothered to mention that I might have to support myself after college, so there I was single without any marketable skills. Following Sharon Peery’s lead, I became an airline stewardess. On my 25th birthday, I told to my parents they should forget the possibility that I might get married—I was taking a management job with TWA and was planning to travel the world. Five months later, I found myself walking down the aisle to wed Bob Pier with whom I continue to share my life.

Bob and I settled in St. Louis and raised two boys, who changed my life from art and girl stuff to camping, backpacking, soccer, and laughter. When our youngest was 2, I decided motherhood was a terminal occupation and was determined not to be caught skilless again. I told the career counselor at the Junior College that I wanted to become an expert at something. He laughingly told me that at 34, I was too old for that. Interior design was the logical fit with my degree. As I followed this path, I became interested in architecture and began taking mathematics. Much to my surprise, I was extremely good at science and higher math even though I couldn’t balance my check book. This finally led me to dare to pursue a childhood love: rocks.

In 1989, I received a PhD in isotope geochemistry from the Earth Sciences Department at Washington U in St Louis. During my 5 year tenure as a graduate student, the Dept. Chair confided that he was very worried about me as I was too old to become a professor and he just didn’t know what kind of work I could find. There are not many folks waiting to hire a geochemist who is an “expert” on some obscure volcanoes in Mexico. Thanks to my advisor, I worked as a post doc while our youngest finished high school. During this period, I audited courses in environmental engineering. In 1992, I took a job with Jacob’s Engineering where I worked as an environmental geochemist specializing in contaminant transport in groundwater at a superfund site outside St Louis. At that time, I was the only recent graduate of the Earth Sciences Dept. who was gainfully employed outside academia!

In 1997, after Bob retired, we moved to Sequim, WA. Paradise after 25 years in St. Louis! I put my architectural skills to work designing and building our home. We also took up many new hobbies: clamming, shrimping, salt water fishing, and boating. We have explored much of maritime BC and visited Alaska 3 times in our boat. We also spend a lot of time traveling—I am finally getting to fulfill my dream of seeing the world.

Our sons have FINALLY married and have produced 2.75 children thus far. They all live in Colorado—a great place to visit. Oh, I do love being a grandmother but this is another one of those terminal occupations. On the bright side—no one has told me I am too old to be a grandmother.
