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!!

I think it would be appropriate here, to share a Facebook birthday wish to Phil Ward, from his thoughtful son, Eliot. Good old Phil, always had some kind of prank going. Gosh, he’s been gone since 1988! Hard to believe! So here it is, I also included the photo he posted:

“Happy Birthday to my Dad today! Irreverent, unique, hilarious, high sense of style, personality for days, and a big heart to love. Scott, a great friend of his was in residency in Boston and had called to check in on him knowing that he had cardiomyopathy, was on the heart transplant list and prognosis wasn’t good. My dad expressed his love for him and asked if his friend could do him one favor? “...I WOULD LIKE YOUR HEART....” they laughed and laughed. Facing challenges and obstacles with love and humor is a legacy he has given me and something I strive to do in my own life. #dad #legacy #philipward #humor #love #challenges #laughter #friendship #memories #happybirthday #challenges #gonebutnotforgotten

Hey, Ram friends, I’m so sad to announce that another one of our classmates has passed away. Coralie Christianson Britton, died on January 2, 2020, after a short illness. She had been meeting with us for our monthly luncheon’s and had seemed great. I was really shocked to get this news. Coralie was such a sweetheart and will be missed by so many loved ones and friends. I will post her obituary asap. RIP, dear friend!

This was on Facebook today and made me smile! Maybe it will do the same for you!!:


My husband and I went through the McDonald's driveway window and I gave the cashier a $5 bill.
Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her 25c.
She said, 'you gave me too much money.'
I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar back.'
She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.
I did so, and he handed me back the 25c, and said 'We're sorry but we don’t do that kind of thing.'
The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change.
Do not confuse the people at MacD's.

We had to have the garage door repaired.
The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.
I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.
He shook his head and said, 'You need a 1/4 horsepower.'
I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, 'NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two.'
We haven't used that repairman since...

I live in a semi rural area.
We recently had a new neighbor call the local city council office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road.

The reason: 'Too many deers are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'
IDIOT SIGHTING IN FOOD SERVICE.

My daughter went to a Mexican fast food and ordered a taco.
She asked the person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.'
He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg lettuce.

I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,
'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?'
To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?'
He smiled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'

The pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it's safe to cross the street.
I was crossing with an 'intellectually challenged' co-worker of mine.
She asked if I knew what the beeper was for.
I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.
Appalled, she responded, 'what on earth are blind people doing driving?!'
She is a government employee.....

When my wife and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a
service, we were told the keys had been locked in it.
We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver’s side door.
As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.
‘Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'its open!'
His reply, 'I know. I already did that side.'
STAY ALERT!

They walk among us, they breed, and they vote…....
