Occupation/Employer Retired teacher
Marital Status Married/In a committed relationship
Family Stats (kids, grandkids, pets, etc.) Married David Adams in 1967. Shauna was born in 1969; Rodney, 1972. Shauna & Dave gave us our three precious granddaughters, 15, 12 & 9.

My mother is 92 and lives nearby in the house Daddy built for us 60 years ago.
General Life Update Since Borah, I've been in Boise all but four years (1959-61) BJC, (1961-64) Taught 1st & 2nd graders. (1964-66) U of Idaho, (1966-68) Taught 8th grade English & reading. (1981-84) classroom sub. (1984-98) Taught 2nd graders at Cole Christian School.
