After 4 years in the military at VAFB, we moved to Lakewood, Colorado and have resided there since 1971.

What's your career?

I am currently retired; my husband Bill continues his CPA practice here in Lakewood, CO. I was with Lockheed Martin as an Enginering Administrator for 25 years beginning at Vanbenberg Air Force Base in California in 1966 after receiving an Associate Degree from Marymount College in Arlington Virginia. Martin transferred me to Denver in 1971 when my husband enrolled at Denver University for his Masters in Business. I also worked for the United Way of Denver for 10 years and am currently a substitute teached in Jeffco Schools Lakewood for the past 14 years. I have also worked for Bill's CPA practice for the last 35 years. I love to entertain, golf two 18's per week, play bridge and mah jongg monthly and Bill and I have travelled throughout our marriage and expecially enjoy cruising. I am currently a substitute teacher in Jeffco Public Schools. I teach approx. 75 days a year and love the connect with young people!

What else have you been doing? What is your passion?

I do fundraising at my golf club for various charities including Wounded Warrior Project, Alzheimers, Children's Hospital, MS, and of course Spina Bifida for my special needs grandson, Nathan.

I love to entertain and of course we continue to travel the world when we can to sightsee or golf.

I am a double cancer survivor 2006 and 2013 so tend to live life on the edge with Bill, the family and our travel friends.

Post-High School Education/Experience:

Associate Degree, Marymount College, Arlington, VA, 1966
1.5 years at Regis College, Denver, CO 1981-83

Surprises!

I was lucky enough to take my sister Sally's invitation to visit her and her family at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California in 1966 after finishing two years of college. Due to an airline strike I was forced to stay on and took a position with Martin Marietta Aerospace Firm. I worked on Space Science programs including Titan, Space Shuttle, Skylab, Viking, Manned Maneuvering Unit (MMU), Manned Orbiting Lab (MOL), and actually saw many space vehicle launches from Vandenberg. I was trained as an engineering administrator and served 25 years with the company. The Air and Space Museum in Washington DC is almost a bio of the programs I supported 1966-1991.

School Story:

Of course the PAINTING OF THE CLASS OF '64. It all happened on October 26, 1963 when the word went out that we were to repaint the wall behind the football stadium in our red and white class colors. This painting took place after midnight and a number of us were jailed by the local police! It was really meant as harmless fun but the authorities thought NOT. There were 26 names on "the list" and of course Jane BOURNE was at the top of that list. All activities and sports for those on the list were taken away for our senior year as punishment. My parents were more understanding. When I came down to breakfast on Senior Day 1964--my dad had prepared a Paint Bucket Purse with paint brush for me to carry to school that day. Somehow that paint can purse was raised at the senior assembly as a tribute to the "Painting of the Class of '64". Don't know what clown raised the paint can purse, but it was a huge hit for sure. When I unpacked my things for Freshman year at Marymount, one of the last boxes I opened was a shoe box containing my Red and White Paint Brush as a reminder from my folks to "Grow Up and Fly High" and I have!

What a great 50th Reunion. Plaudits to the committee and those who snapped all those photos...hope we will have an opportunity to purchase or share then soon. My husband, Bill, was quite impressed with the Mt. Lebanon Rennovation as well as the Asst. Supr. Talk which was looong but oh so informative. I hope to go back next year and tour the school again if they allow it. I will try later to add a few photos I took of my home at 120 Cochran Road--it was well cared for with lots of fall foilage. Never enough time to visit with everyone but hopefully the website will stay active for reconnecting in the future. Have several new Colorado connections to make in the near future and will post some photos there too. We have lots to be proud of after 50 years....it was definately a commitment to excellence back then and NOW!

Looking forward to attending the 50th. People wonder WHERE in the world I've been. Actually in 1974 (10th Reunion) I had just given birth to twin girls two months early. My parents were celebrating their50th wedding anniversary in Pgh. that year and I could not even attend that! I have lived in the same house in Lakewood, CO since December 1973 and thought I had updated my profile--at any rate--my address was correct and still is today. I have NO photos of my Mt. Lebanon days as all photos are with my Brother Mike Class of '62. I thought about asking him to be my date as he knew everyone on the football and wrestling teams. I was always the "little sister"! Looking forward to the experience. I will be in town Sept 16-23 staying at my niece's home downtown on Waterfront Drive.
