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'm the naughtiest of all, a very late birthday wish for my dear friend! Pretend it took this long to get to England, ok? It sounds like you and Rich are fitting right in, I so delight in hearing about it. I hope you were able to celebrate your new decade with some kind of flare? Not burning your digs down or anything, but maybe a little singing and cake? Life is good here, but much more dull without the likes of you around, my dear. Sure love you...Take care! xoxo

I'm sad to share news that our friend and classmate Jim Bleak passed away, yesterday, of brain cancer that he has bravely been battling this past year. He was a neighbor of mine growing up, and a wonderful person. I will post his obit in the "IN MEMORY" area of our website later this week as it becomes available...xoxo

Here is a collage of the few photos I was able to take last Friday at our Outback get together. It’s always refreshing to meet and renew with one another! Bus Riley was back, having survived another season at Fashion Place Mall as their amazing Santa. Joanne and her husband were able to come; he’s looking good and growing stronger! Thanks to all who came, we welcome any others who would like to join next month on April 20th, @ 12:30pm! Xo

Jerry Stansel sent me this great memory of Mr. Nagel and asked me to share it here with all of you:
Marsha, Thankyou so much for all the info on Mr. Nagle. He was one of my very very favorite teachers. What a Wonderful COOL guy he was. I often would chuckle & see his face in English class. Especially when we studied Hamlet & McBeth etc.His expression of Double Bubble Toil & Trouble--Finger of a Birth Stangled Babe---Something like that! He would get a grin on His Face & look up--I would hear Cecilia Cambell who sit right behind me in Our English class--Hmmm? Often when I am flying blind in The Mountains & Bad weather in Alaska--I smile, chuckle & think of Mr. Nagle. I knew HE PLAYED FOOTBALL & used to say after walking out of class before our Game night--Go gettem Jer! I am saddend by His passing. Thankyou

Dave, I hope you had a fabulous birthday; new decade, you're entering!! Do you feel different yet? I've found that I'm checking my "footing" a little more, chewing my food a little bit more, making more lists to check off, and keeping wet wipes everywhere!! Perhaps TMI, but just fyi of what you may be in for!! At any rate, the best to you! Xoxo
