What is your first instantaneous memory of Parkview?

Friends - from "daylight 'til dark" in a brand new modern building with wall to wall windows!

Who was your favorite teacher and/or class and why?

Miss Helen Johnson - Dramatics - She had such a passion for her field and it was contagious.

What was your most embarrassing moment at Parkview?

While taking a World History test in Jody Holden's class, I took off my shoes and pushed them under the chair. At the end of the class my shoes were gone. I remember being so embarrassed (why I don't know) and turning beet red. Finally, Mr. Holden laughed and pulled them out of his desk drawer and I didn't have to go barefoot from his class. I can't believe something like that was so shocking and humiliating to me!

What was your favorite song and who sang it?

"Moments To Remember" - The Four Lads. Also, loved The Platters, Johnny Mathis, and Nat King Cole. I think I was a "romantic" and I loved all the "sappy" songs.

Describe your car and favorite destination:

Whatever car was available - - and where else but Taylor's and Fisher's Hi-Boy - Also loved to head out for LindenLure. (preferably in a convertible)

How have you changed since Parkview?

I hope I have grown a little wiser, and more tolerant and compassionate as you realize the world doesn't revolve around you and your friends. Basically I am very much the same - I can still OUTEAT all my friends!

What careers have you pursued?

My first job came after our three sons were all in school. I worked three days a week putting together ads for our local newspaper in Garnett, KS. After 18 months, I moved on to part-time work with an insurance agency. I guess I got hooked as I got my license and became an agent. When we moved to Topeka in 1987, I joined Capitol Federal Savings as the producer for their agency until my retirement in 2007.

What has been your most exciting or interesting experience?

I will have to think on that one. I really live an ordinary life as an ordinary person in an ordinary midwestern city. BUT my grandkids are anything but ordinary - and they are always exciting and interesting!

What do you do these days to have fun?

Simple things bring me pleasure - such as reading a good book, seeing a good movie, going to Jazzercise and lunch with the gals - I told you I was ORDINARY! Truly, my biggest thrill is watching my grandsons' sports activities. You will see (and hear) me at the ball parks, football stadiums and gyms all year long.

What is it you still hope to do/accomplish?

Have a girl in the family - - my only hope is a great granddaughter in the years ahead!

My working days in the business world are over but I continue to do a lot of volunteer work with my church.
