Comments:

After I graduated I moved to St. Louis where dad was transferred. I was more of a working woman working different places at different shifts until 1975. After dating for awhile I met the man of my dreams. I didn't think God believed in blind dates until then. And it had to be God because Virgil lived an hour's way from St. Louis. Two ladies, a mother who went to my church in St. Louis and a daughter who went to Virgil's church in Pacific, MO got us together. We dated and found that we had so much in common that after 6 months we got married. We have now been married for 35 years and still going strong. In 1979 we moved to Wichita, Ks because of the job market and there worked until we retired in 2006. Virgil as a plumber for the school system and I as a banker. While in Wichita we traveled abroad twice to Israel. Since we don't have any kids we are able to travel around the country on vacations. A lot of our travels has been with genealogy trying to find facts about our families. Since Virgil was able to retire early and wanted to come back to MO, I did some checking around at work and found that I could retire early as well. We are now back in MO, that is in Springfield, Missouri living in a retirement village. It is a big change for me, but wanted to be close to my mother since I was the caregiver for her. Dad passed away in Israel in 1992. We live in a duplex and really like it. Come and see us when you have a chance. We are just off of Interstate 44 at Maranatha Village. I have really not done much since retirement. I try to stay close for Mom in case she needs me. She has 2 frozen shoulders and does need help. We are trying to keep her out of the nursing home so we have a girl that comes in the morning and I do the shopping and take her to drs when needed. Because of her shoulders I go down at nights and get her ready for bed.I have joined the church choir and do play my horn when called on. I do bowl twice a week and play games to keep my sanity.
