Married in 1969, and during my husband‟s Army years, we traveled to Kentucky, Louisiana,
Germany, Korea, with postings back in Kansas in between, then to Alabama and retirement after
21 years in the service. Decided to move to Florida to be closer to my mom and Dad; tired of the
hurricanes, we moved to Tennessee six years ago, a decision made easier by the fact that our only
daughter and her family are there. This year, our daughter is fighting cancer. My work experience
has been mostly in the clerical and administrative areas, until I retired last year. Our hobby is cars,
namely Camaros; we have a 1971 Camaro that we have restored and take to car shows all over the
place . . . and a garage full of trophies from national and local shows.

Spouse: Greg, 42 wonderful years together!
Children: Carol, who has two children, Megan and Aspen.

I am the executive director of a 10-county private non-profit that works with senior citizens and
low-income families; held the position for more than 23 years. My (second) husband and I work a
lot in our yard, and we have 31 head of cattle which we enjoy messing with. We spend almost
every winter weekend at our deer lease, using our camera more than a gun! I am still an avid
reader, and those winter week-ends are when I catch up with novels I have put aside. Travel a lot
on my job, so not much spare time. We have also started “cruising” and hope to do a more of that.

Spouse: Sherwood Gersch, married 20 years. He owns a construction company.
Children: Jodi Anne, a nurse specializing in wound care. She and her husband have recently
moved to Odessa Texas; they have a son Bradley, 14, in the 8th grade, who has just discovered

wife; they will probably relocate to the western part of the US., where Lucas hopes to continue his
education in Sports Medicine.

loves me more than life itself. After his Army service, we moved to his Montana farm, then back
to Colorado Springs. I am a retired medical office manager, having worked for a family
practitioner, an orthopaedic surgeon and a neurologist. We have traveled by RV and on a cruise
ship, and often go to the NRA range in Raton, NM. I enjoy all kinds of needlework and reading.

I am an executive with a large privately owned resort wear manufacturing company, and have
lived in Miami for 25+ years. I have been married for eight years, to a man who treats me like a
princess! My husband and I both enjoy the theatre, skiing (he‟s a chiropractor, so that‟s a
blessing), tennis (when it is not smoldering hot in Miami) and travel. . . . one of my passions is
traveling to Europe and Israel. Now we are exploring the good „ol USA, including my favorite
spot, New York City, especially its museums. My husband was a pilot in the Air Force and we
have recently purchased a small airplane for him to indulge his flying passion. I am still getting
up the nerve to take flying lessons, but old age makes us do stupid things, so I may gear myself up
to do it soon! After my father‟s death in 1992, I brought my mother down to live here in 1994,
and am now dealing with her stage one Alzheimer‟s. Junction City was a wonderful town which
holds great memories for me; it was a great place to grow up in, at that time we were growing up.
I hope I will be able to make it to the next reunion . . . it would be nice to see some of the people
who made life in school impossible for some and those whose lives at school were made
impossible by others.

After a year at K-State, I was „invited‟ (read drafted) into the Army, and recognizing it as a one
way ticket to Viet Nam, I enlisted in the Air Force, which sent me to . . . Da Nang Viet Nam.
After two tours, I got to Homestead AFB, FL and joined an elite Air Force flying unit as an
Airborne Communications Specialist qualified as a linguist (Spanish, Hebrew and Russian). I
remained in the service of our great nation for 20 years, with duty at the Bearing Sea, SE Asia,
Japan, Central and South America and around the US, experiences that were and still will continue
to be extremely challenging. Thank the good Lord for our service personnel and the contributions
that they and their families make on a daily basis. Upon retirement, I returned to Deltona FL,
worked in the college arena, security with the Walt Disney dynasty, then to Coca Cola Company
in Orlando. Personal and medical problems required me to retire, and now I feed the fish and
ducks in my yard, play around with my automotive hobbies and take on other projects.

Left Kansas for anonymity. Found myself in academia. Haunted by latent urban mythology,
retreated to Wyoming for 28 years of retribution, reductionism and redundancy. To my surprise,
no one cared. BS, MA, JD, ABD-Ph.D later, find myself in western Arizona by way of Santa Fe,
having traded in the old 60‟s freak flag for Save Tibet bumper sticker. Still in academia, the
people‟s version. Wiser now: no surprise that no one cares [about the bumper sticker]. The bigger
surprise is that I care. Spouse (who chose not to change his name), son, dog, cat, books, music,
house, car, computer. [See Diana at www.baringwitness.org, Santa Fe].

To DC from Minnesota in June 1995, as an independent government contractor. After a couple of
years, I joined Deloitte & Touche in their Audit and IT Consulting service lines, yet was never
satisfied working in a corporate/structured environment. Resurrected my old consulting firm, now
providing IT Security Program Support services to several Federal agencies with a staff that
ranges between 15-25 (independent contractors), depending on the workload. Although I am a
CPA, I find that I have lost my appetite for crunching numbers. Last year I thought about retiring,
but in the meantime, I really like what I do and I continue to show up every day.

Children: Erika Ann; Megan Elizabeth; Noah Thomas, and Zachary Allen.

your love and care for even us. We are grateful for this time together to renew old friendships and
once again be a part of the circle of each other’s lives. We lift before you our friends and

“You haven‟t changed. ”
But I am not the same woman.
I am not the same man.
It is not the same world, but yet it is.
The years have taken their toll,
On our faces and in our hearts.
Grateful to reunite with those we have missed for years.
Regret that so many were absent.
Naming and remembering those who did not come
Those who can never come again.
Remembering each other‟s families, who watched after us all.
Reaching out -- on the dance floor, at first glance, as we visit,
To cross the time and space that has separated us.
Sharing friendships with husbands and wives and children
Who never knew the young that we were --
Sharing sadness -- sharing joys
Sympathy as we learn of the losses over the years.
Wishing we could remember some things better
Wishing the pain of remembering some things was less,
Remembering a bit differently after the span of time.
Despite all, for a moment
We yearn for that time when we were young together.
But only for a moment.
Thankful to those who made special efforts --
Extended generous hospitality, worked hard to bring us together.
Promising to meet again.
Planning for the future.
Lord, grant us a safe journey through the next years . . .
Until we meet once more.
                        -- Unknown.
