Comments

Grandmother to Keerie, Chance, Cheylyn, Gage, Jacob and Kaylie
Great Grand-mother, to Riley and Dawson and Ethan.

Moved from Milwaukee back to my state of Birth, Indiana in 1971 where I met and married my husband Dan. We have been married since 1973.

I visit Milw as often as I can while traveling to upper Wi. in Marinette, where my siblings and mom live. I spent most of my life raising kids and enjoying every minute of it. My Grandkids are the sunshine in my life. They keep me jumping and I guess, in all reality, it keeps me young since I babysit them almost daily. Life is good.

School Story

Not much to say other then I was always talking and flirting in school but the teachers were always nice to me about it. Even Miss Isley. She was always considered strange. But I chose her as my favorite teacher because she made our days fun. I wish I would have applied myself more. And I wish i wouldn't have gotten married while still in high school. That marriage didn't last long once i grew up. I had my first child at the age of 19. I had my second in 71, third in 78 and my last in 81. I wish I could turn back time, and do things the right way. I have been with my second husband for 46 years.

What have you always wanted to do that you haven't done yet?

Go to the Holy Land, See other countries. I have never traveled much, what traveling we did do was just here in the states. I love Harleys, and three of my kids own one. I always wanted to just take off on the back of one and travel that way. I would love to visit Italy. Land where my dads father was from. Aquasanta Italy.

How many grandchildren to you have?

Kids:
Kenneth, Koni, Danny and Jesse

Grandchildren: (6) Keerie, Chance, Gage and Jacob, Cheylyn and Kaylie.

Great-Grandchildren: (3) Riley, Dawson and Ethan.

What would we be surprised to know about you?

I was born in Indiana. When My parents divorced, my brother and I went to live with my dad and his wife in Wisconsin. My other two siblings, (sisters) Lynn and Sandra stayed with my mother in Indiana. I now have half sisters and brothers that came along after I went to live with my dad and stepmom. Between the two parents marriages, there are exactly 12 of us kids. Three are now deceased. I never told anyone because I always thought it was just a bit over the top, but turns out it is true. My distant cousins are The Everly Bros. They grew up in the same small town as my mother in Central City, Kentucky.

Lived one of your dreams?

I never really had a bunch of dreams. I guess if I were to pick a dream it was to be able to sing on stage in front of my birth mother. No one really knew that I was a good singer until I moved back to my home state of Indiana where My birth mother and two of my siblings lived. It seems I came from a long line of great singers from my mothers' side. Not only singers but every one of my moms family played all different kinds of instruments,. My mom sang as well as she played, guitar, harmonica, accordion, piano, an organ. I always wanted to be on Stage in front of people singing and it became a reality. its was a past-time that I enjoyed while it lasted.

When was the last time you belly laughed?

Whenever I am around Sally Kliensmidth. She is one of my dearest friends from my school days. Sally, Trudy and I still meet occasionally whenever I make it to Milwaukee. We go to lunch and then say our goodbyes. No one can make you laugh as Sally can. Shes a diamond.

What animal would you be if you could choose one?

A Cat. They are clean, quiet and sly...Very intelligent. They are inquisitive and love the sun.

Have you ever been kissed under a mistletoe? And by whom?

Yes,

Did you ever make a prank phone call back in high school?

Yes. We tended to do those stupid things back then.

Biggest thing that you would do differently if you were back at PHS?

I would have studied more, and NOT, gotten married in my senior year. My parents were beside themselves. But I stayed in school and graduated with my class. I also would have went to my class proms, I still hate it that I missed my graduation dinner. My sister came up from Indiana to visit and talked me into going back to Indiana to drop off her friend that she brought with her, and she promised me that she would have me back in time for my graduation dinner. But only got back in time to barely walk across the stage. I also forgot to keep my graduation cap.

Favorite food (that you don't have to cook)?

I still love MC Ds french fries. I also love to go out for Sea Food.

Favorite music or group (from any era)?

Nothing better than listening to the 60's/ rather it is rock or country. My love of classic Country music is well known by anyone who knows me. I was country when Country wasn't cool. While I hung with my friends it was everyday rock that that I listened too. But at home with mom and dad, it was what they listened too and that was Country. I love Marty Robbins, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Dottie West, Brenda Lee, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Meryle Street, Hank Snow, Lefty Frizzell, Hank Locklin, Don Williams, Bobby Bare, Freddie Hart, Jim Reeves, and So so many others. Elvis, of course, is the king of All. And I loved our 60's music which is what I listened too when I was alone in my room.
