Comments:

Dick and I got married in 1973 and moved to Spirit Lake in 1975. Raising one son and remodeling one house occupied our non-working hours for 20 years. I enjoyed learning accounting on the job over 30 years. Mentoring an algebra student led me to start college at age 50 to pursue an elementary teaching career. I became certified in 2008 and have been subbing while hoping for a full-time teaching position. When we could get away, we traveled all over the western states, putting 100,000 miles on our little MGB.

Jan was one of my Bryant School classmates, and I was so glad to find her on Facebook a few years ago. She always had a can-do attitude. Thinking about this reminded me of a recent picture her daughter posted. I don't think she would mind me sharing it. I think Jan accomplished many things in her life, but the comments of her family and friends on her Facebook page tell me her greatest accomplishment was focusing on her family and others in her life. Their memories will keep her alive in their hearts.

Boogie, I was always proud to be a member of the class that elected you and Dave Homecoming King and Queen. I'm so sorry to hear of Dave's passing.
