What have been the highlights in your personal life since your Mount days? Highlights revolve around my family. They all are doing well and except for Rich live close by. He on the other hand can hardly be further away- he’s been in Hawaii since November, 2005

Places you’ve lived: Michigan

What you like to do? - Hobbies, sports, recreation, church, etc. Very boring- reading, walking for exercise and shopping, to do my part to boost the economy.

Who would you especially like to see at the reunion? Everyone. I see Susan usually once a year but couldn’t visit last summer so we have to catch up. Nancy, Paula etc.

Who’s idea was it that you attend the Mount and why?  How many years did you attend?  Other family members who attended and when:  My parents sacrificed to send me to the Mount because they thought it would be the best educational setting for me. I stayed for 6 years because I liked everything and everyone - it was the best time in my young life!

What is your first memory of Mount de Chantal?   Being in awe of the campus. Having only 7 in my class in seventh grade. It was hard to get away with anything. Oh, and candy store. My mother couldn’t figure out why I was getting so fat. It had to do with being able to charge. That can still get you in trouble!

What is your last memory of Mount de Chantal?   Graduation- bitter sweet knowing there would be people that I’d lose touch with.

Most memorable event: May Party 1966

Place/space/sound that captures the Mount in memory:   The playroom - a great place to curl up and be inconspicuous. It was fun to find places where we could hide- Nancy and I were pretty good at this.

Any unusual experience you would like to share or trips you have taken?   Two trips to Hawaii- spent a month on Oahu and did not want to come home. Most recently a trip to Marco Island, Fla. , a great place to be in Feb. Maybe retirement will allow me to travel some and of course I hope Rich stays in Hawaii for  a while
