Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Dianne (Dodi) Madden Kramer


DIANNE (DODI) ATTENDED POLY HER JUNIOR AND SOPHOMRE YEARS THEN GRADUATED FROM EASTERN HILLS HIGH SCHOOL IN 1960.
2010 BIO:
I used the same photo [from 2002 bio], because I still look the same.
Well itís been fun working on our 50th reunion, and all the past reunions. I hope everyone that can, will come out and enjoy the visit, food and just being yourself. The committee meetings are always fun and fattening. I am still working at Bell Helicopter, going on 43 years and starting to plan my retirement early next year. I am going to be a Super bowl volunteer, working at the expo, other various jobs at the stadium. I still volunteer at the Bass Performance Hall and Childrenís education performances, and Finish Line Chairman for the Cowtown Marathon. Life has been good to me and I still have my health. I lost my last sister a year ago, so I am the only remaining one in my family. Of course, I have my sonís and their families. Marifranc and Anita are like sisters to me. I know I will not miss, working only the people and know I will be busy.
The children are doing great. Kendall is still with the Arlington Fire Department and his children are going into middle school. His son is now learning to drive, even though he has been driving the big John Dear tractor for several years. Kendall has always collected 55-56-57 Chevys, and his son is working on them with him. His daughter, like her mom, cooks, hangs out in the garage with the guys. Her dad already has a Mustang convertible for her when she begins to drive. Firemen are always busy doing something.
My son Jason is still a supervisor with a good company and his children are doing OK. Christian is a film student at the Arts institute, and Tory started High School. He is expecting a new baby around St. Patrickís day.
2002 BIO FOR EHHS 1960 MEMORY BOOK:
As you may recall, I was a part time long distance operator while a senior in high school. I was the voice you heard when placing the "first" direct dialing LD call in Fort Worth. After graduation, I attended Arlington State College and TCU, and years later TCJC and TCC. I have not decided what I want to be when I grow up.
While cruising the "Lone Star Drive-In" on 7th street, I met and later married an airman from Carswell Air Force Base. We had two sons, Kendall and Jason. We divorced in 1982.
Kendall is a fireman in Arlington, married and has 2 children, Jeanmarie, 4, and Clinton, 2. He is a graduate of EHHS. Jason, the youngest, would have graduated from EHHS had I not moved to Azle. Jason has a son, Christian Silence, and daughter, "Tory", but her real name is Victoria Bianca Celeste Kramer. I love living near both my sons and grandchildren. After the divorce, I built a house on Eagle Mountain Lake, bought a boat and learned to ski and enjoy the single life. During this time I got involved in Parents without Partners and served in many offices at the chapter level and later was President of Texas, Oklahoma PWP.
I was fortunate to have a great job at Bell Helicopter managing a multi-million dollar budget. What a great job for a woman--spending money! I have been at Bell for 34 years and am active in the Bell Management Association, serving as Vice President and other offices. I am currently involved with the Community Involvement Team, doing various volunteer work in the area. I also volunteer as Mrs. Santa each year for our Bell family day. I was also President of the Lady's Golf League. And "no" I am not playing in the golf tournament. I am waiting for a surgical date for total knee replacements. (both knees). Playing softball, bowling and golf, has taken a toll on these old knees.
I also enjoy volunteering for the Fort Worth Convention and Visitor's Bureau. I spent 8 years in the stockyard CVB. Most of my extra hours are spent volunteering as an Usher at the Bass Performance Hall. What a great way to see all the latest Broadway shows, stars, country singers, opera, and symphonies.
Volunteering at Hangman's House of Horror for 9 years has made a change in my life. I have met many wonderful people, some that have been there for 13 years. We do this haunted house to raise dollars for Tarrant County Multiple Sclerosis. Currently I am the props chairman. Designing and making bat puppets, extra large bat wings for actors to fly across scenes, 10 foot spiders, bleeding hearts, and lots of other gorie things. I also serve as the assistant food and beverage chair, preparing lunch for 75 plus volunteers each work day. When the house is open in October, I then become a monster mom. This involves working with actors in 6-8 rooms. You really become the "mom" to many of the young people during this time. Please plan a trip to Hangman's this October. It's located at I-30 and Forest Park Blvd.
I have been single for 20 years and have really enjoyed the time to grow and pursue many interests. This is not to say that if "Mr. Right" should come into my life that I couldn't be persuaded to rearrange my priorities.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion, and have been fortunate to be involved in each of our past reunions we have had. I wish we could locate each member of our class. I did not attend the Poly reunion, but wish I had. Changing schools that summer was the best thing, besides the Sagamore Hill church camp. Several years ago, we had a church reunion at the home of Dixie and Fred Hubbard. It was like a small class reunion, but, for the group in the same age at church.
