September 17, 1941 Homemaker Married 5
I married Glenn, in 1961, who was from Racine WI. We met at a dance at a place where we both were taking lessons. Glenn was in the Army National Guard and was called up (The Cuban Crisis) soon after we were married. So we lived in Tacoma WA, while he served one year at FT Lewis. Moved back to Racine WI and lived there until 1965. Our first daughter Anne was born there. Moved to Waukesha and had 2 more daughters and 2 sons.

We had enjoyed the weather and the area in WA, while we were there and had always said we would like to move out there someday. Well, in 1978, we decided it was now or never, so we up rooted the 5 kids and moved out there!

Glenn worked for the Post Office in WI and did so for a while in WA as well. Then went on to work for Boeing until his retirement in 1999. I was fortunate to be able to stay at home and enjoy my role as a wife and mother and loved every minute of it.

We now have 12 grandchildren and 2 great-grand kids and totally are enjoying being involved in their lives.

May 19, 1941 Retired Married 2

After high school, I graduated from The university of Wisconsin School of Nursing. I met the love of my life, Bill in Madison. We married and moved to Tucson, Arizona where he finished his degree at the University of Arizona in Business and Public  Administration. Bill  became a commercial real estate appraiser and began his own company in1974. He will retire in a few years.Tucson has been our home for 43 years.  We love it here.

My nursing career took some different paths over the years. They were hospital, home health, public health and school nursing. I stayed home several years to be with our  daughters after they were born.  I retired in 2002.  

Our daughters thirty-nine and thirty-four and  are both married and live in Seattle, Washington with their families. We have four grandchildren ages six and under whom we adore! We see them  several times a year.

We skied in Colorado and utah; hiked in Arizona and New Mexico. love animalsat one time volunteered  for the wild life Refuge. Stray animals found their way to our home. We found homes for many; some stayed with us. Our friends called us "The Casa Loma Humane Society".  Over the years I helped out at the Red Cross  and also taught some parenting classes.  The voluntary work kept me out of trouble during the years I was home with our girls. Bill and I were very involved  a summer swimming program with our girls while they were growing up. It was great fun. 

MY 15 MINUTTES OF FAME

I grew up on a small farm. My grandfather taught me how to ride a horse. One of his instructions was: in order to be a good rider, I needed to fall off the horse eleven times. Well,   I rode without a saddle sometimes. I actually looked forward to 
falling off and landing on the ground!  The crowning moment came on the eleventh fall.  It was not the last time I fell off a horse. Yet I learned to relax when I fell and was never seriously hurt.

AN EMBARRESING MOMENT

Mr. Madden was my Spanish teacher in eleventh and twelfth grades. He taught  basic Spanish.
Several years later in Tucson a Spanish speaking patient in the hosptial where I was working  asked for "agua"  ( a-wa ). Forgetting the Spanish  I learned and being efficient, I brought
him a pain shot for his  'owie".  Soon I found out what he  wanted was a glass of  water i.e. agua in Spanish. He had two for his one request and was "happy" in the process. After that,  I asked someone to translate when  Spanish speaking patient made a request!

.I'm looking forward to the reunion and seeing everyone. Thank to all of you who put so much energy and work into making our 50th reunion the great success it's going to be.

May 15, 1941 Retired Married 2
After college I served four years in the Navy as a supply officer on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific and at the Brooklyn Navel Shipyard.

For my professional life I worked as an accountant for a CPA firm and Blue Cross.

In1969 I moved to Oregon.  I ask my boss where I could live so that I could sail.  I had taught sailing one summer in college.

So I moved to Lake Oswego. Who should I run into in the parking lot of my new apartment - Peter Jench !  I had an idea that Peter lived in Oregon, but I didn't know where.

What luck! And Peter's fiancee introduced me to the woman who became my wife, Mary.

We are happily married. Our son works in insurance in LA and our daughter is an attorney in San Francisco.  Again what luck! Both are employed and both live in the same time zone.

I have two main outside interests - bicycling and volunteer work as an interpreter at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.  For more that eight years now I have had the pleasure of meeting people from all walks of life and telling them about our Pacific Northwest marine animals.

My proudest achievement was completing Cycle Oregon in 07.  With 2300 other cyclists I rode 440 miles crossing the Cascade mountain passes twice.

February 21, 1941 semi-retired deborahjameskitchens.com Married 2
Presently, I'm on my second unsuccessful attempt to retire - I can't stand not being creatively challenged most every day.  I'm still an independent rep for a luxury custom cabinetry firm traveling GA, SC, NC & E/TN, VA & D.C.  I guess my golf game isn't good enough to quit my day job!  In 2000 I married Katie (2nd marriage) and we live in St. Simons Island, GA.  Between the two of us, we have five children and eight grandchildren - all who love to come visit us at the beach!  Drop me an email (marxr4@gmail.com) if you can.

My most embarrassing moment occurred while at UW Madison and I had a part time job at The Edgewater Hotel as a bellman.  One morning Madison was hit with some 16 inches of snow and, like a dunce, I walked the two miles to work only to find that I was the only employee to show up - other than the night manager who was already there!  Because of that, I was busy trying to shovel out/push out guest's cars; run bellhop duties; wait tables in the dining room and even function as the cook!  In the midst of all this, I get a call for room service from some guy and when I told him that I didn't know when I could get there, but I'd get it out as soon as possible; he was a bit pissed and slammed the phone down on me.  As luck would have it, about the time his room service order was ready (20 minutes, no more), there was a lull in all of the commotion going on and I took off for his room.  I knocked on his door, he opens it; I'm standing there with his order on a tray supported up off of my right shoulder and he lays into me for "Taking so long" and "Didn't I know who he was?".  Unfortunately, by this time my give a damn was pretty well broken and I simply threw/dumped the tray on his bed, mumbled something to him about where the sun don't shine and left!  By the time I got back down to the kitchen, the night manager was there waiting for me with about a 25" high fire directly under his 30" inseam!  "Do you know what you just did" he screamed and I replied "Yes, I just threw a room service tray on some jerks bed".  "You stupid idiot" he again screamed, "That was Eric Severoid of CBS News"!  At that age, I had no idea who he was, nor could have cared less!  I was told that I had to go up to his room and apologize, or be fired.  Needless to say, that was the first time in my life that I was fired!

My fifteen minutes of fame were actually pretty lame.  In the early 70's, while in NYC on business; my rep and I were leaving the J.C. Penney offices and were getting on the elevator to go down.  As we entered, a little old lady already in the elevator, starts beating on me with her cane and screaming at me to fix/end the city's ongoing garbage workers strike (the sidewalks & streets of Manhattan were strewn with garbage that had been there for days due to the strike)!  As I was trying to protect myself, my rep disarmed her and tried to calm her down.  When he finally succeeded, she blurted out that I was Mayor John Lindsay (current mayor of NYC at that time), that she was mad as hell that the trash was just sitting all over the city and that I hadn't done enough to end it!  When she finally realized/understood that I wasn't Mayor Lindsay, she apologized profusely and, outside of a pretty good sized lump on my head, we all laughed about it as we continued our decent to the ground floor.  Actually, for as long as John Lindsay remained in the mayor's office; regardless of where my travels took me, I continued to be mistaken for him - many times resulting in some pretty neat perks along the way!
