Today's Featured Biography
Joyce Rea Koster
I graduated from Mercy School of Nursing in Dubuque in 1963. I worked at Mercy Hospital for a year, and then married Al Koster in August, 1964, following his graduation from Loras College.
We moved to Western Iowa where Al began a teaching/coaching career in basketball. He was honored in 1998 as a "Hall of Fame" basketball coach in Iowa.
We had three daughters: Paula Winkel, Theresa Koster, Karen White, and a son, Patrick. They all graduated from Kuemper Catholic High School in Carroll, Iowa, and UNI in Cedar Falls. Theresa received her MBA from Michigan State, and Karen received her Masters at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
I retired in 2004, after an enjoyable 25- year career in school nursing in Carroll. We are proud of seven beautiful, healthy grandchildren: Ryan, Tyler, Jacob and Shayla Winkel, Alana and Benji White and Erin Koster.
In May, 2008, after living in Carroll for 31 years, we returned to Dubuque for retirement. We like to travel and spend time with our family and grandchildren. We have enjoyed the last two winters in the Gulf Shores of Alabama.

"I have to tell you that I LOVE your site! I have used it to plan several reunions now and I so appreciate your efforts and support. Thanks so much!"
"This is the supreme class reunion program out there. Those other sites charge you for almost everything you use or research. My advice to all the classes out there - give yourself a break including your wallet, and do the organization yourself with the fine help of this awesome program. Classreport is the Epic Smart way to manage your class activities and reunions. We consider this program as a legacy to our classes."
