Finished nursing degree at UTA in 1981. Lived in Arlington, had my daughter at Arlington memorial , working there as labor/ delivery nurse. Edmund's job took us to Midland tx in 1985 . In 1988 we moved to Pa to be near my family that moved away from ft. Worth in 1975. I worked in historical gettysburg pa in maternity for about 15 years. Now in frederick, maryland and doing operating room nursing there since 2005. We travel a good amount, instead of saving for retirement!! Afraid when that time arrives, we will not be able to go places. We enjoy going places with Virginia and her family, or my younger sister, Kim, who went to middle school with some of your siblings. I enjoy needle work- cross stitch, needlepoint, crewel; I love listening to recorded books at the beach or on my daily commute. I collect pressed pennies on our travels. Let me know if you want a Smithsonian, or Gettysburg to trade! I love to watch TV- Breaking Bad was the bestTV drama ever! I really dislike working on the lawn or flowerbeds, dreaming of condo living!

School Story

Fun times in the Latin club with Mr Barnes.
To do, to day, ta da. I' m conjugating- ha ha.
I worked at k mart in Arlington during college. I actually ran into him there one day!
Loved Mr Wesley's algebra class.
I can now appreciate chemistry class , I can't remember her name, everyone feared her, but she was a great teacher. I later learned she went to school with my grandmother!
Many of us shared a very long school history, back to 1 St grade. I'm sure Dee was in Miss Holly's class. I definitely remember Cari And I being in Mrs Lords 2nd grade. Mrs Lords daughter in- law was my first boss at Arlington memorial hospital-she was obstetrics director. Danny was in Mrs gambles class in 3rd , I finally got in a class with my good friend Nancy in Mrs Holmes 4th . then Martha and I were in Mrs stepps 5th grade, walking to and from school throughout middle school. I rode to high school everyday with Martha, Maggie, Katie and marykaye. Most of you probably don't know I was MIA senior year, finally moving to Long Island NY, where my father finally got an engineering job at Fairchild. He was engineer on the A-10 WarHog. I finished HS in Bethpage NY in Dec. 75, and came back to TX in Jan 76. I lived with my grandparents, but showed up at a few senior activities- especially graduation. unfortunately I missed the all around senior experience. Still glad to call AHHS home and many of you friends.
