Where do you live now? Where else have you lived? If you could build a second house anywhere, where would it be?

I live in an apartment in Shawano, Wi. I have been in Shawano for 42 years. In the 1970's I lived in Ripon, WI. Wouldn't get a second place. If I had one tho, it would look like the house I grew up in. I sold the house and it is being remodeled and I enjoy driving by to see the improvements being made.

Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

Occasionally have e-mailed Char but don't get back to Omro very often.

What did you do right after high school? Now? What did you want to do or think you were going to do when you finished high school?

I went to UW-O and graduated and taught school for 3 years in Wisconsin Rapids. Didn't care for teaching and went to Moraine Park Technical Institute for LPN training and was a nurse for over 20 years. I figured I would get in nursing some day but wanted to try other things first.

What did you always want to do that you haven't done yet?

Travel to Texas and West Virginia.


I like to work on genealogy and have met lots of distant relatives through the internet researching the family. I still like to read history and biographies, archaeology etc.

Travel much?

I traveled a lot some years ago. Lately I haven't but plan to take some travel trips this year.

What would we be surprised to know about you?

I like to decorate. I even redecorated the apartment I live in. I love estate sales and go to most of them around Shawano. I get pots and pans etc for my cousin's kids when they get apartments.

Cool things you've done?

Got back to Omro 2 times this month and say the remodeling on the house I grew up in. It is near completion. Drywall and insulation in every room, a washer and dryer upstairs, green and yellow exterior paint. It is just beautiful.

Any words of wisdom?


Still have family around? How often do you get back? Would you ever move back to the area?

I get back to Omro at times. Much of the family left the area and we are really scattered around Wisconsin. I don't think I will move back but enjoy my visits to Omro.

What would you do differently if you went back to your time in high school?

Wouldn't do things much differently. I felt I took the right subjects to prepare for nursing. I might have gotten in some extracurricular activities.
