After graduation, I worked as a Dental Assistant for approximately 4 years. During that time, I met Don and we were married in La Mesa in 1967. Due to Don's work work, we moved to Ohio for about one year, but became homesick and moved back home. We bought a home in El Cajon, but' work was slow in don's field, so we sold and this time moved to Maryland. There we bought a couple of homes in the area between Baltimore and Annapolis. In 1970 our first daughter, Rochelle, was born. Then, much to our surprise, in little over 10 months later, I gave birth to twin daughters, Stephanie and Stacy. In 1977, I started back to work, this,time as a school bus driver. Then due to Don's work, in 1978 we moved to Waverly Tenessee We bought a home and lived there for three and one half years. I worked as a teller in a local bank. Finally, in 1981" we decided to move home again for good. We now own our 5th home and I am working full time for Horne Federal Savings in their Construction Disbursement Department.


I don't know where 40 years have gone, but trying to condense it into a short paragraph or two forces one to leave out the boring details. A few short years after graduation I got married and also went back to school. In the subsequent years I had three daughters. Twins followed my first daughter by only 10 months so I essentially had 3 children less than I year of age. To say I was busy was an understatement. During those early years my husband followed work wherever he could find it so we lived in numerous areas of San Diego, Ohio, Maryland, and Tennessee. Finally, at some point I said I was finished and wanted to move home to San Diego. We sold everything and re-aettled here to- start over after a 7-year hiatus.

Once the girls were in high school my husband and I grew apart and we finally divorced. I always said the first marriage was just for practice so that the real one would be done right. Seven years of doing everything on my own ended when Bill came along. Finally, here was a man who loved doing all the same things I did. We camped, hiked, backpacked into the wilderness, and took up scuba diving. Although we dive the cold waters off San Diego, our favorite diving is to go to exotic places such as Tahiti, Fiji, Belize, Turks & Caicos, the Caymans, and others.

Bill grew up in Chula Vista but he too loves the rural surroundings of Ramona, so we bought a house here with four acres. Between trying to keep up with my seven grandsons, maintaining the two acres that are landscaped with two large koy ponds and a 100-foot long waterfall and fitting in our hobbies, we keep pretty busy. We know this is not where we will eventually retire, but for now it's our respite from the world.
