Married Howard Nov 1964 and still happily married! We have one daughter,
Joanne who's married to Bob and they have a lovely daughter, Jessica, age 10.
As Jessica says, "I finally made it to double digits!!" She is growing much too fast
for Grammy and Grampy!
My Mom died back in the summer of 62 and my Dad just died suddenly this past
Dec 28th, 2002. It wasn't a very happy Xmas'

I remember Nancy Tschoepe (Sparklin) and I switching places and answering to each
other's name in Mrs. Yocum's class. We really had her confused! We still are best
buddies and keep in touch. I really have great memories of selling Xmas trees for DE,
and having snowball fights. Remember Paul and Danny?

I used to paint China but gave that up when some of my pieces blew up in the kiln.
Then I painted with oils on wood and slates. Then my daughter and I started doing
the Bob Ross painting. Otherwise, I enjoy reading and swimming at a local pool
(about 20 miles away!)

While still in school I worked at Hepco, Inc. in Chester,then at Dusty's Deli in Village
Green as a fill in until I got married. Then I got volunteered to help out on Howard's
Dads farm on the Conchester. Have been a dairy farmer ever since. We own 131
acres of our own, and rent 42 from a neighbor and 15 from a professor next door.
We have about 95 cows give or take a few, plus about 60 from newborn up. We built
a new milking center about 7 years ago that made things much easier. We recently
put an addition on for more cows and are slowly increasing our herd. I graduated
from driving a car, to a tractor, to driving a chopper! (NO, its not a motorcycle)
Pictures will follow. It is really neat when we are working at night out in the field and
a herd of deer run past, or watch a family of foxes playing.
