I am the oldest of five sisters and one of two who graduated from Cooley in 1966. You might remember me as the classmate who lived at the south end of the football field. If you were lucky, you got to watch the games from my front porch - that provided a full view of the field over the goalposts.
While at Cooley, I was on several Senior Class committees, a member of the Yearbook Staff and also the Statistician for the Football Team (2 yrs.), graduating with National Honor Society membership a full year early so I was the "Class Baby". I was a Business Ed student and spent many years following graduation working for large Detroit companies, including two of the city's largest law firms.
Sadly, I lost my husband in 2012. We had been together for 36.5 years. Faro was a Nativity High School (Detroit) grad. I was Faro's second wife. He had two children from the first marriage so I have both a stepson and stepdaughter. We were Florida residents at the time of his death. Now, I reside in North Carolina ~ where I have several long time friends who took me in as 'family' after Faro's funeral.
My late husband and I met as real estate agents and Dale Carnegie students and continued through the years in sales-oriented businesses until we became yacht crew when Faro got his Master 100-Ton Captain's license in 1980. We started as crew aboard the Detroit Tiger's corporate yacht and continued on thru 2005 on other well-known vessels that eventually took us to our Florida home in 1997. I was fortunate enough during our marine career to visit every port of call along the Eastern Seaboard and into the Bahamas. We worked hard but got to meet many interesting people on our cruises and enjoy the foods of both the North, South and the islands.
I am currently recuperating from two bad falls last year that resulted in both leg repair surgery (for now) and reverse shoulder replacement just five weeks ago. However, I am determined to attend the 50-ish Class Reunion in August. Hope to see you there!
