After graduation I attended Fresno State where I met my husband Ken. I graduated in'70 and started teaching in Orange County that same year. I taught there for 2 years. During that time I married Ken and we moved back to Fresno. We built a house on an acre out near Madera. I continued to teach, and from 74 to 77 we had 3 children; Jeffrey Kenneth, Deanna Marie and Justin Richard. We lived there until '77 when we decided to move to Tuolumne County where my Mom had a second home. We bought an acre and built a home nestled in the cedars and dogwoods. We have raised our children here and Ken and I have both worked in the area.
I teach school at Soulsbyville Elem. (have been there for 25 years) and Ken has been a stockbroker and county supervisor. He has just recently opened a 7 acre "under roof" storage facility and loving it!!
Our son Jeff lives and works in Arizona where he is in insurance and computers as well as tiling on the side. He is married and expecting ! his first baby in Dec. Deanna is a graduate of UCDavis and Johns Hopkins University. She has just completed her Masters in nursing. After 5 years back there working at Johns Hopkins Hospital,she has become a Nurse Practitoner. She is married to a computer engineer who has been working at Raven (Naval Research Center out of Washington DC) and who just got a job at Intel in Folsum. They recently had a little boy, Logan Kenneth. He is 3 months old now! They plan on returning to California by June. Justin, our youngest, works and lives in downtown Sacramento as an insurance agent.
We have two homes in Twain Harte area and the one in PG. We hope to buy a home in Arizona this summer so we can go south in the winter, plus we have an RV in which we travel often. I am retiring this year after 32 years, so we plan on enjoying the rest of our lives traveling, golfing, boating and just relaxing and seeing family!
