I’m a grandmother, Mimi, to an amazing two-year old, Anna, whom I get to see nearly every day; mother and mother-in-law to her great parents, Stacy and Mike; and wife to my very interesting husband, Hal Williams. We married in October, 2006, and see each other four or five times a year as he continues to live in CA.
I met Hal after I transferred to Fresno State from SMU in ‘62. We were both students working for the NSF, he in Biology and me in Math. But then, Hal moved to Santa Barbara for grad school and we lost touch with each other. I married someone else in ‘64.
After about 10 years in my insurance brokerage business, I retired. Prior to that I worked for Transamerica and Fireman’s Fund in CA, NM and PA. Before that, I was a teacher in WI and CA. Did a six week series for the local TV channel in Fresno for 7th grade Math students: that was fun.
I’ve done some traveling, domestic and foreign. Love to see new places and try new foods. I enjoy cooking, reading, sewing, knitting, crocheting, horseback riding and doing Sudoku. I competed in the National Sudoku Championship this year and won the geographical challenge for Feasterville where I live in PA.
Have done a lot of volunteer work: Kiwanis, church (Lutheran), Soroptimist International, Red Cross, various foundations, Girl Scouts, local groups.
I’ve had several lives; and it seems some have just opened up in front of me. While it all hasn’t been wine and roses, I wouldn’t have anything changed as these lives led me to this one which I am enjoying more than ever.
