After graduation, I attended the University of Oklahoma, majoring in Math and Physics. I met my future husband, Tim Quick, there at OU in 1974, where he had started school after 4 years in the Navy, serving in Vietnam. We married in 1976 and Tim enlisted in the Army to continue his military career. Our first duty location was Fort Hood, Texas, where our son, Ian, was born in 1978. We named him Ian Marsh Quick so he would be a future running back for OU – I.M. Quick. While he is great at many sports, he got my running speed, which is not fast enough to live up to his name and become a football star! He recently enrolled at OU to attend law school.
After Fort Hood, we spent 3 years in Bamberg, Germany, where I was a stay-at-home Mom, then 5 years in Alabama where Tim was on Army recruiting duty. In 1987, we moved to Fort Polk, Louisiana where I started my civil service career. I began as a GS-3 Medical Clerk for the Army and was able to continue to progress my career throughout our many military moves. In 1991, we went back to Germany, this time to Nurenberg for 2 years, and Tim retired from the Army there in 1993.
From Germany, we moved to Orlando, Florida, to be near Tim’s family. While there, Tim started his civil service career and our son graduated from high school. I finished my Bachelor’s Degree at the same time. I left OU in 1976 with about 90 credit hours, but no degree. While in Orlando, I was accepted into an Army Civilian development program and completed my MBA.
In 1999, I accepted a job at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, in the DC area, where Tim and I both worked for the Army Civilian Personnel Operations Center. In 2000, I moved to a civilian personnel job at the Pentagon, and worked there until March 2001, when we moved to Fort Sam Houston, Texas in San Antonio, to work for the Army Medical Command. We were blessed to leave DC before 9/11, when several of our friends and co-workers were killed at the Pentagon.
In San Antonio, we were close enough to visit my family often. My parents had retired to Lake Texoma, one sister and brother were in Houston, and my other sister lived in Oklahoma City. Tim and I both worked in human resources for the Army in San Antonio for another 15 years. We both retired from federal civil service in 2016 to have more time to travel. I retired as a GS-15, Deputy for the Army Medical Department Civilian Corps, after 28 years as an Army Civilian. It was a wonderful and fulfilling career. We love to travel as much as possible. For years, we have gone every year to St Croix in the US Virgin Islands for Thanksgiving, have visited several beach resorts in Mexico and Hawaii, taken a few of cruises, and in 2019 spent 6 weeks traveling in Spain and Italy.
In 2018, Tim and I moved to Oklahoma City to Ski Island Lake to be near my sister, Carolyn. We travelled more and she was able to join us on several trips and cruises. We also enjoyed lake life – fishing and boating. Carolyn passed away from lung cancer this year and as of August 2022, Tim and I are in the process of moving back to the San Antonio area to our old neighborhood to reunite with friends and family in the area.
I hope to attend the 50th Reunion, depending on our move schedule.
