Today's Featured Biography

 

Darlene Rowley Beck

In 1951, I moved with my family to a little town in western Oklahoma--Elk City. A town I still call home, even though I haven't lived there in many years. My first adventure was crossing Third Street (Route 66) in an underpass to get to Longfellow Grade School. I met several of my 1963 classmates in Mrs. Reynolds' first grade class. Judy Johnson's mother was my third grade teacher, and I loved to go with Judy to her family's bakery downtown.

I followed three older siblings into Elk City High School. One of my brothers was named Wayne. In Mrs. Smith's English class, I became known as "Wayne". When Mrs. Smith called on me to answer a question, she would say, "Wayne, you tell them!" I did take a little kidding about that.

I learned to drive a stick shift against my will. Charlene Jencks and I took turns carpooling to school. One week she drove, the next I drove. At noon when we went home for lunch, Charlene, whose car had a standard transmission, would drive to her house, jump out of her car and say something like see you after lunch. I can promise, it was a jerky ride for three blocks to my house. Great memory!

Gingersnaps! I loved screaming my throat out every Friday night. We burned up in our wool sweaters and box pleat skirts. Then before the football season was over, we froze. But, we worked very hard not to get those dreaded demerits.

When I was seventeen years and fifty weeks old, I was married. Too, too young. We had a son, Jeff, who was four when we divorced.

In 1971, I married John Beck, and we recently celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary. In 1974, John adopted my son and in 1975, we became the parents of twins, Jason and Jennifer. We have lived in Gainesville, Texas for our entire marriage. John has owned an insulation company for 36 years and I have been his office manager.

When I was 42 years old, (I thought I was old) I went back to college and became a paralegal. I worked in a law office, which I thoroughly enjoyed, until I retired.

We are the grandparents of six, three boys and three girls; the oldest, a grandson, is a sophomore in college. The youngest, a granddaughter will be in kindergarten this year.

I have volunteered in my spare time for VISTO--Volunteers in Service to Others-- and CASA--Court Appointed Special Advocates. In the past three years, I have become very interested in my ancestry. I am having a good time digging! My husband is the general contractor for a "Family Crisis Center", which is a center for abused women and children. Supposedly, my husband is about to retire and hopefully this is his last project before retirement.

One last comment I would make is that I am so happy that I grew up in the small town that I grew up in. In my opinion, there is no place like HOME. Elk City, my HOME!

"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!" 7/9/2014

"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." 5/22/2014
