Residing In: Thousand Oaks, CA USA
Spouse/Partner: John
Occupation: Retired
Children: Michael, born 1961, Scott, born 1963, Brian, born 1965
Since 1960:

After attending Mich St. Univ for 1 1/2 yr, married and moved to Chicago, where my 3 sons were born. My 1st husband's job transfer brought us to So. Calif. After working for several yrs. as a buyer in retail, hospital and a school I went to UCLA and got my degree in Interior Design. I finally finished college at age 47. While working in this field I specialized in kitchen design. In 1986, I married a very funny, wonderful man from "across the pond" and together we have enjoyed traveling to England and other foreign countries. Italy is our favorite. Our joy is our 13 grandchildren, ages 6 to 21, all of whom live within 10 min from us...sometimes this is not so good!!! but most of the time it is wonderful. Our home is the gathering place for family celebrations and holidays; who else but grandma and grandpa would put up with and cook for an immediate family of 21 people.
John is an avid soccer fan and still plays soccer every Sunday in a men's league. I co-founded a tap dance group called Razzmatappers. We have been performing locally for over 10 yrs and rehearse 3 times a week and even traveled to Las Vegas for a competition and won 1st place...in our age group, of course. I also volunteer in the grandkids schools and as part of me is still a kid at heart, I fit right in.
Thanks to all of you who developed this site...

UPDATE: John passed away on April 24, 2010. I miss him terribly and through the help of my family, friends and a grief suppoprt group am beginning to feel better.

Dear Terrie and Bill....thank you very much for hosting the Friday night reunion at your lovely home. You both made it extra special that night and Bill, I enjoyed your humor on Saturday night. I especially like my award for traveling the most distance to the reunion.
See you at the next one. Have a happy and healthy 5 years.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Lauren, as you grieve your loss of Sue.  My memories of her are of a warm smile, kind words and grace.  I always looked forward to seeing Sue at our reunions. 

After your sadness lifts, may you find joy in the happy memories of your life with Sue. 

Be gentle with yourself...Sandy Steele Barry
