Oh my, how do you fit your life in this space? Life has been filled with so many blessings, with its challenges along the way, needless to say. With the loss of 2 husbands, I've learned to rely on myself and great children. My folks and siblings, of course, were always there as well. My children have kept me well grounded and encouraged me to accomplish things throughout my life. It was necessary to work, but found it rewarding and fulfilling.

I graduated from Westminster College, and worked for the U.S. Gov., U.S. Forest Service, as a Paralegal, for Office of General Counsel and Dept. of Justice, retiring in 2008. My activity in the LDS Church has kept my faith strong and has helped me find purpose in much of life. My children are married now, and I have 15 amazing Grandchildren, and 1 Great-Grandson. They bring much joy to my life, as I'm sure so many of my classmates find.

As a Master Gardner, I've been serving as a Garden Guide Missionary at the Salt Lake Temple grounds going on 7 years, and what better mission could there be? I love to garden! I am now the Director of that mission. I enjoy traveling and do so as much as time allows, with family or close friends. I have visited many amazing countries all over the world, and look forward to seeing more!

I'm blessed to have stayed close to many Highland High friends and hold those friendships very close. I've loved helping with the reunions, and this 50th one as well!!

School Story

I was one of the lucky ones....9th grade at Highland High School!! Woot Woot! I did not enjoy Jr. High quite so much, but when I hit Highland, things seemed to really turn around. Both curriculum, teachers, and especially friends, Highland was the PLACE!! Enjoyed Forensics, attending all of the games, and my heart was really into Seminary.

I was a seminary officer my senior year, and we had so much fun planning and implementing activities with the "Brothers" across the street. Another favorite all my years at Highland was the choral groups I participated in, Girls' Choir, Jr. Choir, Madrigals, and A'Cappella. Mr. C was the bomb!

Of course the dances at Highland were the best ever... the decorations and atmosphere was always the best. Always had so much fun at them. And who could forget the Pep Assemblies?? What a riot, we used to laugh so hard at classmates making fools of themselves, me among them!! Anyhow...Great memories Rams... I've been very sad seeing who has past on already, and remember what each of those individuals meant to me. But it's been great remembering all the GOOD! Love to all of you out there!! Hail Highland!!

Hi Rams. I just added a few senior moments. Man, it seems like they are coming a lot more frequent to me these days, I don't know about you. At least I recognize that they ARE senior moments and not the NORM, I guess, right? I try to smile and appreciate just the little things in life, like actually being here! I've gone to way to many funerals lately.

A plug for the RAM lunch tomorrow! Our sweet Joanne Thomas is dealing with a lot right now with her husband's health, and I absolutely want to thank her for all that she's done in the past to help ramrod these luncheon's! She's really been the spirit for putting them together with the venue, date, etc., and I so appreciate her enthusiasm. I send special prayers and thoughts for her husband Jim at this trying time for them. SO, Tomorrow at Outback Steakhouse in Sandy is where we will be, for those who want to SMILE, EAT, and enjoy a great time.! See you then!!

Outback was lots of fun yesterday, and I slid back into South Ogden as it started to snow. So happy I went! Seriously, it’s always such a nice break in the month that I really look forward to; you too will be happy if you try it out!! A few photo’s here to recap our RAM lunch!

Happy Birthday, Joe.... I have a whole week of seniority on you... ha ha! Did you ever think we’d hit our 70’s? Well it’s a good thing, don’t get me wrong! Glad to catch you every once in a while at the monthly RAM luncheons! Very happy they are continuing, and hope to see you again soon! Happy New Year, as well!

Jim Saley passed some information on to me today that I hadn’t heard I thought I’d share. Galen Campbell’s wife, Susan passed away this week. Her funeral is tomorrow. Galen will be happy now to have his lovely wife with him. She was a great lady. RIP, Susan..

Hi rams! Here is the link for the Salt Lake Trib 12/16/17 news article regarding beloved Highland High music teacher, Paul Christensen, “Mr. “C”. There was a new scholarship established honoring this teacher’s lasting legacy. For those wishing to contribute, information on how to do that is at the very end of the article. Go. Mr. C!!
