After graduation from Russell, I went to Wesleyan College and, in 1963, graduated with a degree in education. I taught in Florida for a year but missed my horse and the trees and, in 1964, began teaching in Marietta.  I met my husband, Pete, there and we lived in Cobb County for 34 years.  For 25 years I directed a large adult program in English as a Second Language.  We had always spent time hiking in the mountains and, in 1998, we moved to Cherrylog, Georgia and now live in a log cabin beside Rock Creek, bordering the Rich Mountain Wilderness Area.  We are lucky enough to have a daughter, Melissa, 37, and a son, Peter James, 34.  Melissa, an International Flight Attendant, is married to Alejandro (from Spain) and they have a lovely daughter, ZoĆ«, whom they adopted from Vietnam 2 years ago.  PJ, an International Entrepreneur, has a Brazilian wife, Juliana, and they have a daughter, Isabel, 5 years old.  My husband came from England, so we are truly an international family!  Our granddaughters already speak at least 2 languages and, since they are close (in Ellijay and Marietta), I enjoy spending time with them. I've been selling real estate in the Northeast Georgia mountains for the past 10 years. Several years ago, Pete and I opened our own company, LoveThoseMountains Realty; our office is in downtown Ellijay. I have 11 horses, some of which I have imported from England, Gypsy Cobs, and 4 Australian Shepherds.  My oldest horse is 41 years old!  I enjoy playing the Hammered Dulcimer, Autoharp and the Mountain Dulcimer and play in a dulcimer ensemble.  I am active in Cherrylog Christian Church; I play in 2 handbell groups and sing in the church choir.

Thanks to all who have worked so hard making this reunion possible!
