Dear Family and Friends,
In looking back, the past century has been very
good to me. I have been blessed with a loving family. As I reflect
on my parents, I am thankful that I was born to such a loving pair.
My husband, Hector, two children, four grandchildren and one great
grandchild have brought me much happiness.
I am thankful that I have been
blessed with good health, as I have been able to enjoy many
experiences. My academic pursuits at Wooster College, University of
Southern California and business school in New York provided me with
a superb education and opened up many other avenues. My curiosity in
others has taken me to such places as Germany, Ireland, Scotland,
Italy as well as China at the ripe age of 88. My legs have also
treated me well, as I was able to stay active through golf, bowling,
fishing and other activities. My love for people gave me the
opportunity to socialize with friends through many clubs.
I have been fortunate to have two
successful careers, as a teacher and executive. I had the privilege
of teaching many children from various backgrounds and I loved every
minute. Hec and I had wonderful experiences building Ross Iron and
Tank from the ground up. My various job duties ranged from book
keeping, secretarial, semi driver, sales negotiator, and vice
president. Each experience introduced me to many fine people and
expanded my knowledge base beyond belief.
Who could ask for more?
