Diabetes Ed. & Cardiac Rehab. @ TG.  And I have 6 beautiful, intelligent grandchildren.  I have been an RN for45 yrs & still work, in a private fertility clinic here in Tacoma, but just 4 or so days a month.  I volunteer at & help run a 32. y/o free clinic, also in Tacoma, in Hilltop area.  I still attend St. Leo Church, my parish since birth, and on a health ministry team there.
i love to travel and read books of many genres bot have an affinity for historical (romance) esp. if set in Scotland or Ireland, counties of my ancestors.  I've done fairly extensive travel, thanks to being married to a military man, now retired, & have been to Ireland 4 times (have cousins  there still., and have been to  most countries in Western Europe & all of United Kindom to include Northern Ireland .  I've been to most states here in USA.  I have a beloved pet, dog, Seamus, almost 70 lb. 1/2 Bearded Collie & 1/2 French Briard, who is a protective mama's boy.  Live in North end of Tacoma, among many memories of my youth.  One of my best friends, Sallaye, also a stadium grad.  Not much else, altho I recently started a Pilates class in an effort to feel better, & feel as if I am doing something for myself.
4 of my 5 sisters still live in & around Tacoma & see them pretty often.  
I hope many of you will come to our 50th re-union, as we, the committee, have worked diligently on it & at our age who knows how many more opportunities we will have to re-meet, and share memories.  While at the Tacoma Yacth Club again, it is very casual, only shirt & shoes required, oh yes, and pants too ;-). , or skirt, or kilt.

My life has been very interesting since graduating from Stadium High School and spending a few years at TCC. I was a bit of a gypsy when it came to settling down - both in vocation and location. I had several unusual jobs in the sixties from a receptionist, model, artist, bartender, and dancer. I worked at an ice cream shop, library and insurance agency - finally getting hired as a stewardess (what I was called at my hire date in 1969). I flew for 35 years and retired in 2006. During that time I raised twin boys and a daughter.  I have traveled much but now enjoy spending time at home in the Northwest. After retirement I returned to my first love -Art - and have been painting ever since. However the joy of my life has been being a mother; My sons and daughter  are my best creations!  I I have lost two dear grandsons - one to SIDS at three months and the other to a rare Zellweger disorder which took his life at four years. From this - I have learned to appreciate every moment in life; I cherish my friends and love the simplest moments and things in life. My love of painting and a small level of success has enabled me to donate from time to time to Childten's Hospital. There is nothing more dear than the face of an innocent little one who bravely faces daily health issues . The lessons I have learned from them. In the future I hope to travel a little more...spend time with my one 13 yr  old grandson and keep busy with wonderful, caring friends who have enriched my life and made a difference in the lives of others. Our upcoming reunion will be a hectic but rewarding time to reacquaint with the young children of the 60's. I will cherish each memory and moment we share.%uD83D%uDC99

Blissfully married to my high school sweetheart after 46 years, Terry and I have been enjoying being grandparents to our daughtter's three (10, 7 & 4), who thankfully live close by. Our son in Chicago isn't quite done playing around before he settles down. Terry still works full time and I love being retired. I somehow manage to fill my days puttering and being entertained by the birds at the feeders outside my windows. (Son's comment on his last visit as I excitedly pointed out the plethora of chickadees, "Mom...you are now officially an old person.")
The thing is, I don't feel like an old person. I don't even regard my mom (still sharp,active and independent at 94, God bless her) as an old person. I do love my afternoon naps, but who doesn't? What a relief to finally be okay with not having goals in life; to get up each day, stretch, brew a cup of coffee, talk or not talk, then do or not do something productive. Life is good!
I'm looking forward to our reunion.

Greetings from Denver, where  I  have  lived since the early 70s. I came here for graduate school (they offered me money) and did not expect to stay because I missed the water.  But I kept getting jobs and then formed a company with a friend. I am still working as President of a small non-profit organization I formed in the mid-80s. I consult with courts and justice systems, and with human services agencies around the country. Retirment is probably a few years away.

I have been lucky in life and am very happy.  My life took a strange turn in the late 60s when my dad accepted a job in Turkey and I ended up graduating from college in Beirut, Lebanon (The American University of Beirut). I was drafted before I entered graduate school and served in Viet Nam  as an interrogator/translator. I finished graduate school in Denver and then traveled for a year in South and Central America (one of many travel experiences). I have been working at various jobs ever since, both as a vocation (researcher) and an avocation (waiter/bartender, exercise instructor).

I assume you are as surprised as I that we have come this far. I am not certain where this journey will end, but I will continue to have fun living. Although I have cut back on my paid work, I cntinue to volunteer on several fronts. For example, I am serving as President of my neighborhood association in downtown Denver (art museum, capitol, library), serve on a couple of boards and perform pro bono work for public agencies.  I am expecting to live to be 100, which is not too ambitious these days. That age seems very distant to me now, but I know the time will pass quickly.

I have fond memories of my years at Stadium and I am looking forward to reconnecting with all of you at our 50th reunion. CONGRATULATIONS to all of us.

My husband, Dan Meyer (married 48 years) retired last summer from our auto collision repair business in Tacoma after 30 years.  We live in Gig Harbor and do quite a bit of traveling.  We have two children and 3 grandchildren. They all live in Gig Harbor, which makes it fun.  We will be on a trip in July, so, we might not make it home for the reunion.

I'm still married to Tom (46 years!), two married daughters, one with 2 boys, ages 6 and 8 and the other with 1 1/2 year old girl and 13 year old boy.  We really enjoy being grand parents! Tom and I have liked to travel - although those long flights are getting to be too long! We belong to two car clubs (Gallopin' Gertie's Model A Club and Steeds), so lots of social time with friends from these clubs.  We are getting ready to downsize to a more carefree living style home and yard, and are looking forward to a very active 55 and over community. I have been on our reunion committee every single reunion, and have enjoyed getting to know a lot more people than I knew in high school!
