Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Billie Vestal Swanson


I went to work as bookkeeper for Frank Groves Oil company in August after graduation. I worked there until I married my high school sweetheart Larry Swanson in May of 1963. For the next 26 years I raised kids. Julie, Jeff and Jennifer. We lived in Wichita, Liberal and back to Wichita. In 1971 we moved east of Ark City to raise hogs with Larry's dad. In 1977 we bought the farm and I went outside to take care of hogs as well as kids. For 22 years I managed the farrowing houses and delivered thousands of piglets. In 1974 our son Jeff and his wife Darla moved home to go into partnership with us. I decided I'd had enough of cold, mud and heavy lifting after the winter of 1999, so that spring I went to work as receptionist for Snyder Clinic in Winfield. The next February, I got a job as commercial insurance customer service rep with United Agency in Ark City. Been working there ever since. I still do commercial insurance but I am now the Real Estate secretary (which I enjoy much more than the insurance.) Being a mother of three teenagers was good training for trying to keep track of five realtors all the time. I have no plans to retire, United likes "old people". I'd be bored to tears if I retired.

We have a wonderful family, the three kids, two wonderful son-in-laws and the greatest daughter-in-law ever. We have four grandsons and three granddaughters. Our oldest grandson married a lovely girl on 7-7-07 so that gave us another granddaughter.

I enjoy my church work, gardening, fishing, reading and working on the class reunion committee.
