Yes! Attending Reunion
Residing In: Plymouth, MN USA
Occupation: Retired
Children: Carol 1966, Michele 1969

I have been living in Minneapolis since 1977. I worked as a service rep for the phone company for a few years until a car accident forced me to leave before retirement. After I had recovered to the point that I could do a few things, I traveled the country for 5 years with a group of coin and jewelry buyers. You may have seen a two page ad asking to bring in your old coins and jewelry for cash. That was us.
I also became a Certified Massage Therapist as I had had several injuries in my accident and knew exactly where people needed help and how to do that. I could feel their pain and that was very helpful to my clients.
Music has always been in my life and after my divorce in 1980, I took up singing again, taking part in various talent contests in the minneapolis area.
I also love traveling and my last trip was to Greece, Turkey and Paris. Of course I do take a lot of trips back to California to see my brother and sister. He lives in Valencia and she is in Sacramento. My brother flies for American Airlines so I am very lucky to be able to fly for free. Yeah I have also taken a few cruises to Alaska and warm weather islands. This summer (2014) I am going to England with my brother and sister. We have just found out about all our new relatives in England and are going to meet them after Facebooking them for the last 2 years.
I have reconnected with a few of my classmates and am having a good time talking with them and emailing with them. There is nothing like old friends. Anyone who wants to reconnect with me is more than welcome. I hope to hear from some of you soon.

Happy Birthday John. You probably don’t remember me because I did not make a good first impression because I was the shyest and most awkward girl in the school. Lol
I hope you have a wonderful day.

 I played violin at Taft high school for Mr. Delwarte  and I also was one of the four banner carriers for the West Valley youth  band.  I think that was the name of it.  He was also the leader of that band. I remember how he used to take such good care of us when we would go and play for some function. One time, it was early in the morning in Pasadena and it was cold and the four of us were shivering  so he went up and down the street looking for a car that was not locked. When he found one he told us to get in and stay warm until it was time to start. I was a little nervous that the owner would come back to the car and find us and not be too happy about it.

Another time, I told him I wanted to learn to play an instrument  where I could play in the band, as I had a crush on one of the band members. He picked up a flute and said,here take this home and figure it out. I did, and a couple of weeks later I marched with the band. However, playing the flute and marching made me hyperventilate till I thought I was going to pass out. That was the end of my band experience. 

 After six years of playing violin I gave it up after high school but I kept my violin in my office all these years and every time I looked at it, I remembered Mr. Delwarte and smiled for all the happy times we had.                       Last year I finally gave it to a little girl who wanted to learn to play but her parents could not afford to buy one.

Me Delwarte,  you will always be in my heart. RIP  ??

Hey John, I hope you have a wonderful birthday and am enjoying life And am happy and healthy. I see you’re not much of a classmates person and don’t respond to any messages, but I hope that you did get in touch with Mickey Cates. It’s OK that you aren’t into this site and I am not much either, but I do like to recognize peoples birthdays even if I didn’t know them very well. To each his own. Right? ??

remember them

I have written you two messages in the last couple of months on your private page and I know I’m not doing the right thing to get them to you. I just wrote one today about 10 minutes ago and I can’t see that it went through please let me know If you received it. This site is too much for an old lady to comprehend. Maybe you could give me an email address that would work out better.
