Got spoiled, the family she lived with had maids and chefs, so she lived a great life! She currently is in hotel management in West Hollywood.

A long winding road that continues to weave through many experiences; intertwining with other lives along the way. Many interesting and challenging jobs, travels, and the best was being born again in 1990! Serving the Lord, the church, family and friends.

School Story:

Was blessed to attend a small elementary school - San Gabriel Avenue. I think it may have been the smallest in South Gate at that time. Kandy Kavigan, Joann Riley-Pitochelli, Dwight George. "Gladys" Elaine Butts, Peggy Thacker, and others were in the small class.
Jr. High was an adjustment for me. High school was really fun. Loved Ramblerettes, the football games, dances and friends! Sorry sometimes that I didn't spend more time with those of you in this class, as I went to summer school and accelerated to graduate with the S'61 class and went around with mostly ones from that class.
I do have fond memories of a few of you however, in many classes. US History I am forever grateful to Pat Pennington! Homeroom with "Mama Mills" was always interesting to say the least.

A few years ago, I read Bob's book about his sad experience during and after the Watts riots. As Martha said, Bob made lemonade out of the lemons he received! So awesome to see how he served the Lord for so many years! It was always good to chat with him!
