How I met my spouse:

Career infomation:
I retired from Dow AgroSciences on 2-1-2000, after 35 years as a secretary/office professional/ administrative assistant.

Travels:
In 1980, my husband and I traveled to Germany, to visit friends who were stationed at Rhinemein AFB. Did lots of sightseeing and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also enjoy traveling (frequently with our 5th wheel) in the U.S. in conjunction with competing in various archery tournaments. It's a great opportunity to meet others from all over the country (and beyond) who share a common interest.

Interests, hobbies, and pastimes:
Both my husband and I enjoy archery, in the competition arena as well as deer hunting. We've also spent quite a bit of time working with youth, helping them learn how to properly shoot a bow. Sometimes that has been through a 4-H program and sometimes through a club program.

Accomplishments:
One of the most exciting accomplishments was to win the women's division at a premier archery tournament in 1992, held each year in Las Vegas, with my husband/coach in attendance.

Momento to remind you of 1962:
My yearbook and diploma.

Biggest lesson learned:
Once you've made a decision, don't look back and second guess how it might have been if you'd chosen differently. Just keep going forward. Give your very best in everything you do. Also, no archery tournament (or any competition) is ever over until the very last arrow is in the target and has been scored (never give up).

Closest friends in 1962:
My closest friend was Sharon Church. We kept in touch until her death in September 2001. Others were Margaret Freeman and Kay Rice.
