Yes! Attending Reunion

Ian was in the USAF for 20 years, so we lived all over the world, including Okinawa, England, Turkey, and Germany. Stateside, we lived in FL, WA, ID, MT, MI. We retired to Destin, FL, but moved to Paradise, CA, four years ago to be near our son and two grandchildren, and closer to our daughter and other grandchild who live in Hawaii. After being burned out of Paradise, we moved to Hixson, TN, where we still reside.

We still love to travel and spend a couple weeks in Scotland (Ian's birth- place) every other year. Will be in FL for Christmas, still my favorite place to be.

School Story

I only went to Coral Park for my senior year, but felt at home because I met up again with friends from elementary school, Kathy Reser and Judy Grosskopf. On my first day at Coral Park, I met Dale Ackerly who was a sophomore, and we became fast friends, and still are. For the most part, I did secretarial/office mgmt work while raising our children and following my husband's military career. I was a writer/editor for our local museum in Paradise, volunteered for a local group that serves the homeless, as well as a member of various organizations including DAR.

I finally earned my BS degree from CA State, Chico in 2019. One more dream fulfilled.

I wish all my classmates as much happiness and fulfillment as I have known in m lifetime.

Over the years I've often thought of Pat and Pam, the only twins I ever knew. We were only acquaintences, but their names stuck with me. I'm so very sorry for Pam and the rest of Pat's family. God bless you all. Kathy (Childress) Steenson
