I was born and raised in Norwalk, Ohio, a small town 16 miles south of Sandusky. My husband Duane and I were high school sweethearts and graduated from Norwalk High School together. We have three children. Our daughter Renee and her husband Tony live in West Virginia. Our son Todd and his wife Maureen are our neighbors. Our youngest child Robyn and her husband Dave, also live in Norwalk. We have five grandchildren and a great grandbaby due shortly. After our children were in school, I started teaching 4 year olds at a local Christian nursery school. When our youngest was a senior, I went to work full time as a service rep for a local phone company. Upon retirement Duane and I became full time landlords – a job we still have.
Our family has enjoyed boating and fishing on Lake Erie as well as travel to all kinds of sporting events, high school and professional.
Although my family remains my primary interest I also keep busy with garden club and other civic duties. I was introduced to the Town and Country Garden Club in the late 60’s and have been an active member ever since serving in all roles from sunshine chairperson to president. I also serve on the GCO Board.
I look forward to meeting each of you at our district meetings.
