Residing In: Bellevue, WA
Children: Bill and I have 8 grandchildren...the greatest joy of our lives!!! We have 3 children...2 married..unfortunately More…1 just divorced..and he's the one with 6 kids!!
Yes! Attending Reunion

Since last coming to a reunion our lives have been filled with our work in Kenya...such a life changing work. We have 18 girls we have housing for, schooling, and loving for..all young women..the most vulnerable in Kenyan society...ages 13-23..2 of our girls are now in college in Texas..both aiming to be nurses..we are SO proud of them. They are THE MOST positive women we know. We are fortunate to go visit them..and work for them..once a year. I met them all when I worked in a medical clinic for 2 years (only 2 weeks long..but we saw 1200 patients in that time frame) the poorest of the poor. Diseases I only had read about in nursing school...
Nothing has touched our lives so deeply. I'm happy to share all this..just ask...sure a far cry from my life in Bellevue...or on Shaw Island..or in Arizona...but this part has TRUE PURPOSE!!!

School Story:

As my grandchildren are getting older, I am recalling allot more moments that molded my life..and I must say, I was MOST fortunate to have as many good friends as I did...and you all helped me to grow...and believe in myself..and not settle for a "small" me..but to spread my wings and FLY!! Sweet girlfriends..we all struggled together..and the boys that I was close friends with were very important...I have GOOD memories of being respected and cherished..and for that I say "thank you"...and I pray this will be the case for ALL my grandchildren...Sky's the limit when we love one another...Looking SO forward to this reunion!!!

Hope you are healthy and enjoying life!!
When I saw your birthday was coming up I began to pray for your life and I recalled how much o liked who you were— for you reminded me of my brother Steven who also was thin and wore glasses and was a “book worm”— obvious smart guy!!
Snd niw I see you also sent into the medical field!!
My big brother, Steve , died just a weeks ago today— Parkinson’s— a very mean disease// my heartache is so raw… I didn’t get down to him in time to say goody but all are advising that he wouldn’t have wanted to have me see him in that state// I can accept that// the thought helps— his wife was my roommate in nursing school//
Mike? Have you made contact with Hank Koerper?
I would imagine you would light up his life!
Give him a call or text!! You’ll be blest!’
My warmest love and happy memories!
Mary Jo— and then I was Fiddy// and now I’m Mary??

God bless you dear Diana!!
I so remember being in your little boat on Lake Tahoe as we raced ahead of a storm singing at the TOP of our lungs: “YOU GIVE ME FEVER!”
Terrifying two 16 year olds!! But a fun memory.
