Updated April 19, 2009 – I lost my husband of 40 years in November of 2003. We had lived in Lanham Maryland for 35 years but moved to Chantilly VA in 1998. After he died I moved to a townhouse in Fairfax VA. My oldest daughter and her family live 5 miles from me in Oak Hill VA. I have one granddaughter who is 7 years old. Before my husband died we did some traveling to Antigua, Spain and the Bahamas, plus a trip to San Diego and Santa Barbara CA. My son lives in Arlington VA. And my youngest daughter just moved to Edgewater Md.

For the past 22 years I have worked at the Dept. of Energy in Washington DC. The last 12 years in the office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation. I am the Executive Assistant to the Principal Assistant Deputy Administrator. I love my job and the people I work with. I hope to retire in another year.

I send my best regards to all the people I went to High School with. It was great growing up in Oil City.
