After leaving W-L, I graduated from Mary Washington and then worked in Boston, for 2 years at the Harvard Medical Area Health Service. I then spent 2 years in Providence, RI, in the National Teacher Corps. It was one of President Johnson's War on Poverty programs. I attended Rhode Island College full time and taught in an inner-city school to learn to teach the disadvantaged. I received my Masters in reading in l968. I then returned to the Wash. area and taught Remedial Reading for 2 years in 2 elementary schools in Prince Georges County, while living in Alexandra. During that time I met and married my first husband who was a Flight Surgeon in the Air Force. We moved to Manassas, where he opened a medical practice. I continued to teach Reading in Fairfax County, and Prince William County. For awhile I helped him with his practice. In 1980, we divorced and I later met and married my present husband, who was in the Navy at the time. We moved to Lima. Peru, in 1983, and spent 3 years there. He was the Naval/Defense Attache. When we returned to the US, my husband retired from the Navy, and we lived in Tampa, and West Palm Beach, while my husband worked for Service Corporation International. We moved to Atlanta, in 1988, and have been here ever since. I have worked with Mary Kay Cosmetics since 1986, and have done substitute teaching in Middle and High School. My son is a GA Tech. graduate and lives in Charlotte, where he works with computers for The Vanguard Group. He married last year. My husband has 3 children, 6 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. My mother lived to the age of 97, and spent the last 5 years of her life with us where I cared for her. We were blessed to have had her so long. We continue to keep busy, read, travel and enjoy life. I am really disappointed not to be able to attend the W-L Reunion. I have been looking forward to it ever since I heard about it, but my husband has a Submarine Reunion the same weekend in Myrtle Beach. I need to attend with him, since he was the ship's Commanding Officer for over 2 years. I would enjoy hearing from old friends and I hope that I can attend the next Reunion.
