After graduation I attended Illinois State University where I received a bachelor's degree in physical education four years later. I met my husband to be, Carl Hovde, in my freshman year. Carle was the captain of the wrestling team at ISU when I met him. My love of wrestling started when I was an enthusiatic fan of the wrestling teams at Evergreen Park High School. I went to all of the wrestling matches at ISU.
Carl and I married at the end of my sophmore year. After 4 years of marriage we had a daughter named Heather. Carl Died in 1987 and I have never re-married.
My daughter met her husband when she was an undergraduate student in architecture at the University of Utah. Heather and her husband now live in Denver where they are working architects. I have two grandchildren.
I taught physical education for 18 years during which time I received my master's degree in physical education at the University of Illinois in 1976.
I also owned a dance studio and dance apparel shop for about 9 years.
For the past fourteen years I was self employed as a healthcare provider for mentally disabled adults. My business was quite rewarding, but it was time for another change in my life in 2006.
In the summer of 2006 I retired to devoted my time to my present passions: visiting my grandchildren, gardening, writing children's stories and poetry, cooking, playing with my three dogs, reading good books, and swimming.
