6/19/2012 Need for 'current' pictures
Hi..the class has current (post-graduation) pictures for most of our classmates.
Following are those who we have _no_ 'current' pictures of, though.
Please send any of the needed pictures
. . .
After graduating from Strong Vincent, I enlisted in the USAF. I was the only WAF in the Air Police Squadron at Chanute AFB located in Rantoul, IL. I worked in Base Security, assisting in FBI-run security checks on young airmen who wanted to become pilots. I met my son's dad, James Muzik, at Chanute, and, because I had volunteered to join the Air Force, I was granted an honorable discharge right after we were married at St Patrick's Church in Erie on my 20th birthday.
Jim, a mechanical engineer, was offered an engineering position in Pomona, CA, but in just two years, we moved to Prescott, AZ, where we were honored to reside in a beautiful historic home. It was known as the Old English Castle because it was originally the home of an English man who discovered and engaged in hydraulic gold mining in the 1800s. When Emerson Electric, the company Jim worked for in Prescott, decided to move to St Louis, MO, Jim started his own construction company and real estate office.
My second husband was Ed De Lisle, hence my current surname. I met Ed while taking graduate courses at Arizona State University in Tempe. I received two degrees from ASU. My BA is in Education with a major in English. I thoroughly enjoyed Shakespearean and Chaucerian literature. What I enjoyed most was working with autistic children, and children with learning disabilities. This teaching was all in Southern CA, however, once I retired. I never renewed my teaching credentials. I am strictly retired, and just want to enjoy and have fun with my six grandchildren.
One of the fun things I did in my early 20s was singing at various nightclubs in Chicago, such as the Edgewater Beach. However, I am a nonsmoker, and I just did not care to be in smoke-filled clubs during the 1960s. If you don't use it, you lose it, is what I recently discovered when I attempted to sing along with my grandchildren. I'm even a poor hymn singer at church.
I happen to love animals, so when Ed wanted his own business, I suggested a pet store. So, we owned and operated Five Points Pet Shop in Huntington Beach, CA, for a few years. We had in-store fun animals such as Gunther the Goat, which young David would take on walks around the shopping center, and a talking parrot that our male customers thoroughly enjoyed.
I am eagerly waiting to read the various things that have happened over the past 50 years in your life now that I have finished by running out of space.
