Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Billie Sue Damerau Howell


Jack and I married in November 1963….the day after Kennedy was assassinated. He has no problem remembering our anniversary since the media usually mentions Kennedy’s death.

We have 2 children, Kelly and Jeff. We have 4 grandchildren, 3 beautiful girls and 1 handsome boy. The oldest will be a senior in high school and it doesn’t seem that long ago when we were starting our senior year at Travis.

I worked for about 35 years, mostly secretarial work, for a bank, a senior citizen center(got some good training) and TxDot, just to mention a few. I retired in 2005 and enjoy doing whatever.

I love all kinds of crafts...scrapbooking, calligraphy, making cards and taking care of the ’59 and ’61 websites. I have stayed in touch with friends from high school and love it when we get-together.

It was great seeing everyone at the big 5-0 and I look forward to seeing you in 2016. Until then, try to make it to one of the Rebel Musters held in the Spring and Fall!
