Santa Fe has been our home for the past 30 years.  Before then we lived in California after graduating from UofW and getting married in 1969.  We have a son who lives in Seattle with his family and a daughter who lives in DC.  Bob worked for the state in finance and I taught 3rd grade.  We are now happily retired.  Bob is writing a screenplay and I weave tapestries.

We filled our empty nest with rescue birds (2 African Greys and a Cockatoo) as well as a dog and a tortoise.  Bob will stay home with the "family" when I attend the reunion and in Sept. our roles will reverse when he attends his 50th reunion.

A big thank you to the reunion committee!  You have done an amazing job.  See you soon.

After I graduated MVHS I attended Dordt College in Iowa and obtained my degree in Elementary Education. Ed and I married that summer of 1969 and we spent one year in Ellensburg, WA while Ed finished his BA in Education. We both were offered teachig jobs in Southern California at a private Christian school. Ed started the Industrial Arts program and I taught 4th grade. I took a few years off to raise our two sons to school age and I then went back to teaching after getting an additional degree in Special Education from University of California at Riverside. I then started a Learning Handicaps program at the private school we were affiliated with and I taught that for 10 years. Ed left education after 7 years and started a business of Diesel Repair and Sales. 21 years ago we moved that business to Eastern Washington when an opportunity arose to buy land and a building for the business instead of leasing. After living in So. California for 25 years we had said if we ever move back to Washington we would move to the dry side of the state! :)
After we moved to Sunnyside I worked for our Christian Reformed Denomination for 11 years as a regional trainer and facilitator for Small Groups ministries. My region was the northwest quadrant of the United States. I was also the Worship Administrator for our church here in SS during that time!
Our oldest son got a degree in Agricultural Engineering and moved with us to Sunnyside and is now taking over the business. He added a Manufacturing component to the business and we now manufacture truck bodies as well. He is married and we have 4 wonderful granddaughters who also live here in Sunnyside. Our youngest son Todd lives in Portland Oregon and works with autistic boys. He is also a copy writer for various businesses.
We now have been married for 46 years---Praise the Lord! As every couple does, we have had ups and downs in our lives but through them all God has been faithful to keep His promises to us to "make our paths clear" if we continued to trust in Him! We both are very involved in our church as well as in our community. We have come to love the desert of Eastern Washington and the myriad of opportunities for recreation. We have a 5th wheel so really enjoy getting out into the beautiful world around us! We both are retired--but we like to call it re-tiring----putting on new wheels of involvement in our community and church. We are so very blessed!
We are eager for our reunion as it seems because of social media it has been easier to catch up with classmates and it seems all are appreciating, as we age, the gift and value of long standing acquaintances! See you all there!
