I worked in So. Calif. for almost 1 yr. Then I went to Florence, OR., Married & had my children. I did work part-time for a couple of years as a nutrition consultant for O.S.U. I moved back to S.L.C. in 1978, went to work for the State of Utah for almost 2 yrs. Got divorced in 1979. I became an L.P.N. and worked around the valley at nursing homes, hospitals & Dr. offices. Then I worked at the S.L. Surgical Center for almost 7 yrs. I got married again in 1985 and worked in more Dr. offices and then a Nat'l Medical Consulting Co. for more than 11 1/2 years. We had many medical insurance co.'s who hired us to review operative reports, labs and various other procedures. We would make recommendations on how to process them for payment. I assisted in the development of a new department, hired, fired, and trained employees to do the job. I worked with Dr.s', Dentists', & other medical professionals and sat on many committees. I loved it! After that my husband & I were buying his families old homestead with up to 90 head of cattle and several head of horses. Then I moved back to S.L. in 2005 and Finally in May 2008 our divorce was final! My body has been injured many times, (on the job and a car accident), so I am now retired.

School Story:

Who was your favorite East High Teacher? Why?

Miss Lorraine Bowman
She was the first person that I had ever met who had a positive attitude Everyday! She also taught me and everyone else about much FAITH! I really enjoyed her class and her personality which helped me realize that life was worth struggle and sacrifice. Also to work hard and keep at it until you get to where you want to be!

What is the funnest thing you have done recently?

The end of June, my son & his wife came for a visit. Our family and some friends of theirs went to Jordanelle Reservoir, in a condo for the weekend. We went out on their boat, swam, used the hot tub and did much visiting and laughing.

If you could have a "do-over" for one year or event in your life, what would it be, and why"

I would have gone to nursing school much sooner.
I would like to have not married my 2nd husband.

How have your priorities changed in the last 10 years?

I moved back to Utah in summer, 2005, began to renew my L.D.S. religion and got my last divorce. In Jan. 2009 I took out my endowments. I am finally Happy again and in a Great place.

Summarize the most important things you have learned since 1969.

You can't please everyone.
You can do anything if you set your mind to.
