Back in 1967 . . .
“Koolie” moved to California after attending CTC for one year. She went to college there until a collision with a train left her somewhat “indisposed.” After her recovery she went to work to pay the doctor bills, attending school part time. After her father’s death in 1963 in a car accident, the rest of her family joined her in California.
Presently she is serving as an accounting clerk for a large corporation in L.A. She has aspirations of becoming a junior accountant.
Her parting remarks were, “I would like to see a ‘newsletter’ printed more often than every six years.” Good idea.
In 2010. . .
How wonderful to think about a 50 year reunion for CHS '61. After comparing my graduation picture with a current one, except for adding a chin or two, I haven't changed a bit.....
Since I graduated from CHS, I attended one year at CTC, and I continued my education in California in mathematics. I have worked as an accountant all these years. I am now semi-retired.
While married, we adopted three children and I'm now a grandmother of nine.
I consider my five years at Concordia as some of the best times of my life. Dorm life, most classes, attending high school games, working on campus after classes, weekend fun, writing Koolie's Kolumn for the school paper, singing in the chorus - it was just the best.
I don't think I was very "serious" about life at that time, but that all comes with aging. I'm blessed to have most of my immediate family living near me, but unforunately, not my grandchildren.
I look forward to next year.
