Occupation: After leaving IKE I
graduated in pharmacy from WSU,
then joined Merck
(from which I recently retired after 35 years).
During my time with Merck I also earned my MBA from UC Berkeley, and moved around the country several times while holding a variety of sales and marketing positions. It's been a great ride, but time for a new adventure. Having raised our two girls (and being empty-nesters), Diane and I recently sold our place in Issaquah and bought a crappy little beach cottage in Seattle. For now (and while Diane continues her career as a CPA with Costco), it looks like I will spend my time (1) managing a major remodel of our little home, (2) working on my not-that-great golf swing, and (3) figuring out how we can most effectively give back to the community. This is the first reunion I have been able to attend, so I look forward to seeing everyone (and MANY THANKS to those of you who are putting this all together!)

Are you married? Yes
Married How many years? Almost five
Number of children? Two

Occupation: I married my one and only high school
boyfriend, Russ Wheeler, 2 months after graduation. 
We had two daughters, now 36 and
33, and divorced after 8 years of marriage. 
I met my second husband in 1983 and
married again in 1987.  I had gone back
to business college and was working at
a Yakima law firm as a legal assistant. 
We moved to Vancouver, WA in 1990 and
I worked at two different law firms in
Portland and Vancouver.  We were married
almost 20 years when he passed.  At age
49 I finally got the braces I needed back in
high school.  It s definitely easier to have braces when you are young!  I decided to move back to Yakima to be near my family in 2007, again working as a legal assistant.  I met my current husband Ken on an on-line dating service.  We married 10 months after our first date!  We have been married almost five years.  We currently live in Othello, WA near the hospital where my husband works but also have a house in Yakima where we spend a lot of time.  Since we married I worked for a while at the Othello and Warden School Districts but now manage our rentals.  We will live in Yakima full time in about two years when my husband retires.  I still do a lot of sewing and quilting, and love gardening and home renovation/improvement projects.  We enjoy spending time with our grandchildren (4 of mine and 5 of Ken s) and traveling.  We have gone on some great trips, including a fishing trip to Sitka, Alaska last year.  My oldest daughter Sara is a massage therapist in Yakima and recently received her teaching degree from Central.  My youngest daughter Shannon, also in Yakima, is a stay-at-home mom to her three children and also is self-employed with a photography business (Love Photograph).

Our oldest, Brian, and his wife live in Chicago, so we visit the big city often!
