Comments

I graduated from the University of Utah ("Go Utes!!") with two degrees in Education. I have taught school in Utah, Virginia, California, and Texas, and recently retired after 27 years of teaching.

My husband Wynn (deceased) and I were active in Scouting leadership for many years, and were both trainers at Philmont Scout Training Center in New Mexico. Being the parents of 6 sons, it was inevitable that we would be involved in Scouting.

My favorite hobbies are cooking, entering cooking contests, and entertaining guests in my home. I have represented Utah in national cooking competitions, which presented wonderful opportunities to travel and meet new people.

My "second home" is Hawaii, where I lived during each summer as a single school teacher; I have also traveled throughout Europe, and parts of Canada and Mexico. Now that I'm retired, I look forward to more travel opportunities.

My questionable "claim to fame" is that I was friends with serial killer Ted Bundy, and a camp counselor (Brighton MIA Camp) to Rosanne Barr.

My plans for the future are to serve on a mission for the LDS Church, to enjoy my grandchildren (13 and counting....) and to travel. Having survived cancer and two open-heart operations, I'm grateful to have made it to the 50th EHS Reunion!!

School Story

My favorite memories of school activities involved marching with the Pep Club, performing in Dance Concerts, and most of all, finding the joy of choral music in the ACapella Choir and Madrigals. Lorraine Bowman taught us so much! My friendship with the people in Madrigals has always been so very special to me; our 40th year reunion was priceless.

My favorite memorable moment was during my junior year at EHS when, for the first time in 50 years, our school took State in basketball!! I still remember that we cheered for about 20 minutes straight at the end of the game. My brother Craig made a big banner out of a white sheet with red paint, and waved that banner all throughout the game. We had a big celebration in the EHS gym afterwards, with the State trophy under a spotlight in the middle of the gym floor. What a great moment!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Marty! My favorite memory of you is the photo of you on the front page of the Deseret News in 1964, making a layup shot at the State Basketball Championship game, with the headline, "Sun Rises In the East!" What a great victory that was!!! After 50 years, East finally won a state championship in basketball!!!

ODE TO PROGRESS
Your new "green giant"
Is a thing of beauty!
'Tis truly a help
With your lawn mowing duty!
It's surely advanced
From the task of yore
Using hand-pushed blades
Was a tiring chore!
And then there was clean-up
Of the grass left behind,
Raking and bagging
Dead grass was a grind!
So glad for you
That you've found a new toy
Which makes life easier
For the green grass boy!
Sit back and relax,
Enjoy the fruits of your labor,
Your beautiful lawn
Is now yours to savor!!!

What a wonderful experience for you and Christine, Steve! Will Rogers has always been one of my favorite humorists. Whenever a person comes into my life with whom I personally struggle, I like to think of one of Will Rogers' quotes: "There are two kinds of people---the kind you love and the kind you don't understand." I love that quote, and it has really helped me in my personal relationships! I just recently bought a book from Amazon: "The Wit and Wisdom of Will Rogers." Love it! I have never been to the Rogers Ranch, but I think I need to put that on my Bucket List; the photos look great! Thanks so much for sharing this experience with us!
