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!!

Heads up! If you know anyone that's been frustrated not receiving emails from our website, I've been working with the IT folks and they have discovered that anyone with "comcast.net" emails will not receive emails. They've tried to work with Comcast, but Comcast is saying nothing is wrong. We've tested the system and others are receiving the emails. So, what they suggest is that you add a secondary email to your profile, such as a gmail or such, if you would like to continue to receive emails. Really sorry about the problem, but I guess we've done as much as we can on our side. Oh the joys of technology!! Thanks for being patient.

 I just found out about Steve's passing tonight and felt very sad so much time had gone by that none of has heard about this.  Particularly for me because I grew up in Steve's neighborhood as a kid and we were always good friends back then.  He had such a great sense of humor and would keep our Primary and Sunday School classes colorful...  I had heard that Steve's journalism interests had paid off for him, because of his talent in those areas, and was happy to hear of his great successes there.  Steve chose not to have an obituary, but the write-up I have above was provided by his younger brother, Craig.  Steve will be missed by many, God speed, dear friend!
