School Story:

My dad was in the military and we moved from Arkansas to Kenosha when he retired in the middle of my Junior year. I didn't know anyone at Kenosha High School and felt kind of alone until I met Candy (Olesen) Parise who took me under her wing and invited me to join the Alpha Aurora club. It was there that I met three other lifelong friends, Suzette (Arnoldini) Englund, Nancy (Walton) Julien and Marikay (Burmeister) Chiappetta, all of whom were seniors at the time. Marikay actually got me an afterschool job at Korf's where she and i worked together in the stockroom (for 75ยข/hour). I have fond memories of the times the five of us had together. It is also where I met my first husband, Ken Hansen, in English class. Our relationship developed when we both attended the Kenosha Extension Center and were married on August 21, 1965. Suzette stayed at my parents' house with me the night before my wedding so she could do my hair and veil the next morning in preparation for our 10:30AM wedding.

Here's a copy of my newest book, Know You Are Loved. It's available on Amazon. I hope you'll check it out.

This is a photo of the graphically illustrated book I published that is filled with inspirational messages to my daughter Liz.
