Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Jean Sammons Torr


It's been difficult to create a biography since it's not clear to me anyone could possibly be interested. BUT, here goes ...

Shortly after high school graduation, my parents moved to southern Ohio where Dad worked on construction of a power plant. I took a job there as assistant to the purchasing agent for the project as well. At some point, my interest in attending college renewed itself, and I subsequently spent two years at Ohio University, where I received an AA. During that time, my parents returned to MI and I had such good intentions of transferring to Michigan State to finish my degree work. However, up jumped General Motors one summer, and all my great plans were placed on the back burner. That association ended 30+ years later; something of a record for summer employment, don't you think?

Again, at a much later time, I felt the need to accomplish my personal goal of completing college. I graduated (BS, with honors) from Oakland University while maintaining a full work schedule, which included managing a Personnel Department in Advanced Vehicle Engineering at Pontiac Division of GM. I happily retired in 1988 and have never looked back. I say happily, because I had worked rather consistently from the age of 15, and no longer being constantly scheduled was a most pleasant change to anticipate.

In 1962, I met the person who was to become my husband (January, 1963)on a blind date. In 2003, we celebrated his mid-life crisis by divorcing after 40 years. Needless to say, blind dates hold little appeal for me, but I have since forgiven the friends who made the arrangement. We were not blessed with children, so I am one of those not so enviable creatures -- an only child with no children and no remaining relatives. So, in my late 60's I found myself looking for a new place to live and adjusting to a new way of life. Since I have no ties and it doesn't matter a lot where I live, I set out on a voyage of discovery. After a rocky start, some lucky star lead me to my current home in The Villages, Florida, a senior fantasyland. Nearly everyone here is from somewhere else; they've left family and friends behind, so we tend to form new attachments quickly. I truly could not be in a better place. Four years ago, I decided I needed something other than my one living plant to talk to and care for, so I adopted my little friend, Bailey, a 12-pound Shih Tzu. He has trained me quite well and we peacefully coexist.

Life has taught me that nothing is forever, and true happiness was never a promise. If I can be reasonably content, what more is there to ask? It's February 5th and 75 degrees with bright, blue skies. Yes, a gorgeous day, and you can be assured I am reasonably content. Life is good.
