After graduation, I attended the University of Wisconsin, Green Bay, and then two years at Madison, graduating in June, 1963. I married Tom Denissen later that year. We have three children and six grandchildren. I was hired by the Green Bay Board of Education as an Instructional Aide in 1977. Walter Zahn hired me in my first position. I retired in 1997 and we moved up to our cottage on Morgan Lake. This is a small private lake just north of Wausaukee. This truly was paradise, but once our grandchildren came along, we realized how fast they would grow up and we didn't want to miss a thing. In 2007, we moved back to Green Bay and presently reside in Howard. We are pleased to have all of our children and grandchildren living in the Green Bay area. I consider myself very fortunate because some of my friends from high school are still some of my best friends today. For the last thirteen years we have spent the winter months in Gulf Shores, AL.
