Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Linda Etheridge Rich


I'm Class of 62's only baby boomer, born on 2/14/46 in Ukiah, CA. My parents relocated there from Vallejo after my dad was laid off from Mare Island at the end of WWII. We returned to Vallejo in January, 1952, when he was rehired. We lived in Chabot Terrace for a bit over three years, and I attended Everest School. When Chabot was closed down my parents bought a house east of US 40, and I transferred to Cave Elementary for 6th grade. After that I moved on to Hogan Jr. High, VHS, VJC, and Sonoma State College.

In the summer of 1964 I met Lyndon Rich, a student at Mare Island's Nuclear Power School. We tied the knot on 2/12/66, halfway through my senior year at Sonoma. After graduation I joined him in Hawaii, where he was stationed with the Navy. Our first child, Becky, was born there in the fall of 1967. In 1969 we were transferred to Newport News, VA, where son Mike joined us in 1970.

In 1971 the Navy sent us to Charleston, SC, where Lyndon was attached to various submarine and shore commands until he retired from active duty at the end of 1982. He went right to work at a nuclear power station in Braceville, IL, southwest of Chicago. In 1993 a new opportunity took us to the Philadelphia area, but after an eight-year exile in Philly we were delighted to return to Illinois (central part of the state this time) in 2001.

On several occasions I was a trailing spouse and took jobs as and where I could find them. As a result I worked in several different fields during my nearly 40 years in the workforce but concentrated on accounting, technical writing, business operations and banking. I retired from Heartland Bank and Trust when I turned 65 in February of 2011. We lost our beloved daughter a few months later, but her three children and their families all live within 75 miles of us and are doing well. Our son, who has autism, is still single. Because he hates snowy winters and loves sunshine, he lives in El Paso, Texas.

Now that we're retired we can live where we choose instead of where the jobs take us, but we plan to stay right here in flyover country. Life is good in Bloomington-Normal, where we've made some wonderful friends and enjoy a range of hobbies and volunteer activities.

One last piece of information: I'm currently working on my fourth novel. I write under my very simple married name - Linda Rich - and the first three titles are Casey's Wall, Remembering Home, and Tunnel Vision. All are available at your favorite online bookstore in electronic and print format.
