I had such fun shopping in New Delhi, Tolkyo, Hong Kong and many other places back when the dollar exchange was really good. After they went out of business, I was a sales rep and got to travel to Fargo, Des Moines, Green Bay, Madison and other hot spots in the upper midwest.

November 18, 1943 (281) 488-2111 (281) 488-2111 15303 Poplar Springs Lane Houston TX US 77062 Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay Married 2 2012-08-06 21:33:30
After graduation from our alma mater, I escaped to the sunshine at the University of Arizona in Tucson.  After only one year there, I returned to Minneapolis due to the death of my father.  While attending the the University of Minnesota, I met and married Alex Siegel.  Graduating with a degree in Elem. Ed. in 1965, I taught 2nd & 3rd grades in the St. Paul schools while Alex completed his Ph.D. in Child Psychology.  He was offered his 1st academic appointment at the University of Pittsburgh.  While there, Jeffrey was born in 1968 and Laurie followed in 1971.  After 12 years, Alex was offered a Professorship in the Department of Psychology and the Directorship of the Graduate Training Program in Developmental Psychology at the University of Houston.  Being Texans now, we wear cowboy boots, Stetson hats and have developed a significant drawl.  Because we live in suburbia, we cannot keep cattle or develop our oil wells.

Jeff (a physicist) and his wife Karen (a microbiologist) are DINKS (Double Income, No Kids) and live in Boston.  Laurie and her children, Sarah (11) and Alexander (8) live in Christchurch, New Zealand.  Laurie received her Masters Degree in Counseling and is currently Operations Director for the Problem Gambling Foundation of New Zealand.  Apparently one of our children's life goals was to live as far away from their parents as possible.  At least we have great places to visit!  We try to see our grandchildren as often as possible, but it is a long, long flight.  They have come to visit us several times in Houston and in Cape Cod.

As far as my other world, I enjoy a great variety of activities.  I enjoy reading, book groups, bridge and other games, and being with friends for lunch and dinner.  Alex's coin collecting hobby has evolved into a business, and he stays busy doing research and writing about foreign coins as well as buying and selling them.  I am an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay Cosmetic.  I don't have a pink Caddy, nor do I expect to get one soon.  I try not to let my business get in the way of my social life, but I do try to keep everyone, including myself, looking young and beautiful.  It seems to really work.  I look pretty good for 92, don't you think??

The mushrooming of totally dysfunctional family life in USA across generations is abysmal.

Paula and I are contiinuing to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary after vacation trips to Myrtle Beach and Maui this past winter. My very caring wife has survived 2 very trying bouts of breast cancer in the '90's (including radiation, chemo and surgery) while workig full-ltime. She currently volunteers many hours for several local arts, education, and church organizations. I have volunteered 15 years for Meals on Wheels and many hours at our church and our neighborhood association over the last 4-5 years.

We have been blessed with 2 amazing daughters now living in Dayton, OH and Seattle, WA. First daughter graduated from West Point, married a classmate, served her 5 military years and has since moved 11 times with her advanced military husband and their 4 children, ages 2-11. Second daughter graduated from U. of Michigan and Michigan State U. to gain employment, going on 8 years with Microsoft, married, moved 3 times, and has one 10 mo. old child, so far. We do get to visit our daughters and their families quite often despite their distances. We did more international travel when our daughter, son-in-law and family were stationed in Germany for 5 years.

Though now both retired, Paula and I have greatly appreciated living and working in various public school pro-education environments for over 40 years.

I look forward to reconnecting & renewing with my St. Louis Park past.

April 03, 1943 (952) 474-9190 18420 Spring Crest Drive Minnetonka MN US 55345 retired! Married 2 I like gardening (most of the time), biking on trails (but not roads,) kayaking around our lake (but only on calm days,) and snowshoeing through the woods up north. Recent trip: our family had a wonderful time in Scotland last summer. Celtic folk, cajun, anything with a beat.I still think bob dylan wrote the best lyrics and Joan Baez had the most beautiful singing voice. Thoughtful, curious, careful listener. I would like to be more adventuresome. My new five year plan: try sky diving, visit Macchu Pichu and learn to text fluently. 2012-08-06 21:33:21
After graduating U of M I married my high school sweetheart, Al Ritchie, and began teaching in Hopkins.
We have two daughters, who are now married, each with two kids. While raising the kids, I was active in the community, local politics and League of Women Voters activities, and especially with women’s issues. I became quite passionate about the issue of sex equity in high school sports. I met a number of female athletes and coaches, who helped me realize how the athletically talented girls of our era had been short-changed and under-supported. (Lord knows, I was not gifted in any sports activity, but now I understood how much richer their lives could have been had their skills been honored and nurtured.)
 
Later I worked as a self-employed marketing communications producer, creating brochures, newsletters, videos, etc. After that I was the Communications Manager for a manufacturing firm, and lastly, a self-employed Organization Development consultant.
 
Today, Al and I are enjoying retirement. We spend a fair amount of time at a local health club, trying to stay youthful. Hah! We also go to our Up North cabin. My mother, age 95, is in assisted living nearby. I am her chief financial planner, chauffer, spokesperson, etc.
We also see our grandchildren frequently, although as they get older, that means attending their sports events mainly.
 
 I’m interested in the spiritual side of life and in meaningful conversations about the big cosmological questions. (i.e. Is there only one universe??)

Many thanks to all of you classmates that have been so thoughtfully planning for the Class of '61 Reunion. Your volunteer efforts are applauded.  Reading notes from the meetings and now reading about/seeing individual classmate photos has been delightful!

I have not lived in the Twin Cities since our days as students at St. Louis Park High School.  Over the years, however, there have been what now seems like countless (and never long enough) visits "home".....It has been fascinating to observe the economic success and growth of the area.  Towns that once seemed so small and distant now have major retail areas, endless housing developments, and are connected by giant highways.  There were many years of surprises at the airport, as the thriving community seemed to require an abundance of new construction projects and ever changing traffic patterns!  Many visits with immediate and extended family members have been joyful.  Many visits have been sad. 

It has been wonderful to have lived in several states.  Professionally, I have always had very meaningful job experiences, for which I am grateful. 

My very best wishes to all of you.  Happy 50th!

Need to go to Asia/ New Zealand and South America I really don't have a clue? Nothing that I can think of. My husband Ron and I will celebrate our 40th wedding next July. Next May I will have completed 40 years of teaching Chemistry at the University of DC. And that is enough time to warrant retirement.

I met Ron when we were graduate students in chemistry at Purdue University. When we graduated, Ron went on to The Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, and after that gained employment as a toxicologist with the Food and Drug Administration, where he still works, enjoying it too much to be ready to retire just yet.

We both have families in Minnesota, so we return fairly often. We have some lake property near Saint Cloud, so maybe when we are both retired we will spend summers in Minnesota and perhaps winters in Mexico.

We also have family in Seattle, Sarasota, and Raleigh, so there are lots of places to visit. We also love to go to Santa Fe and New York.

Very little. I worked full time while in high school and was self supporting. This was good background for "life," and college but I am certain that I missed a lot of fun and also learning opportunities. The same was true for my husband.

I had a wonderful time and lots of fun in college and graduate school (despite work), however. We still maintain almost weekly ties with friends from graduate school - some of whom are still in Minnesota.

I did not have an Echowan picture taken.
I had to make financial choices. Since I did not participate in activities nor was my high school class attendance "stellar" it did not make "financial cents" to spend the money for the picture.
2012-08-06 21:33:27
I have been very happily married for  45 years to my high school sweetheart (from Benilde). Our motto has been that "There's nothing we can't solve together." We married in 1966 when he returned from Vietnam.

Our daughter took the "now" picture below. She placed us  in the same location  (31st and Kentucky) where we had a similar picture taken in 1957. My daughter found the "then" picture, which was taken on my 18th birthday in February of 1961. It was taken downtown Mpls in some " Hennepin arcade" on a date? with  my husband.  (My daughter found it because it is her father's favorite picture of me from that time era and he carried it to Vietnam. He had a big painting  made from it which we have on our wall.

We took a financial risk  (gave up very good jobs) and started a health care management business in 1986 so we could work and travel together -- rather than traveling separately for different business. For me,  going back to medical research and related activities was  more meaningful  than worrying about another quality (???)  "operating system software release schedule."

We have been blessed to have had a  successful  25 years in  running our  business with no problem years. We have added 10 employees recently, which will help us "kick back" a little.  Marketing has been exclusively through "word of mouth." Every day is different -- and we learn something new  every day as well as "meet" wonderful people from all walks of life.  We contract only with organizations but do pro bono work for individuals when appropriate and possible.

We have one "two-legged" daughter, who is  successful and nationally known for her artistic and creative work. Her husband is also very creative but works in Foundation management.  We  have a beautiful four legged daughter - a German Shepherd named Gloria.

Yipes…no grandchildren, no children, no husband, no SO, not even a dog right now…does a 92.5 year old Mother count? She is the reason I moved from beautiful Sausalito, CA to central Texas. Was in the SF Bay area to pursue a Ph.D in Philosophy, Cosmology, & Consciousness at the California Institute of Integral Studies...current status ABD. Why more school…you have to read to the end of the story.

Now, am providing lots of support to Mom, doing some health coaching and Trauma First Aide work, keeping fit, recovering my Spanish, preparing for my 70th decade, and trying to adjust to Texas culture by growing native perennials…it and they are a challenge…its a tough place for this Minnesota Progressive. 

Next phase…when Mom passes will probably bi-locate to MN & New Mexico. Sure do miss the Northern Minnesota Lake country. 

Backstory:

Was a hospital executive/CEO working too hard. Eventually diagnosed with fibromyalgia so retired early. Standard treatment then was worse than the disorder. Conventional thinking: once you have fibro, you have it for life. Not True! Not True! Sought out complementary & alternative therapies, especially the “energy psychologies.” Voila! No fibro, (but also triggered a “spiritual emergency” as they say in the trade.) The experience challenged my thinking with the questions: What is the relationship between early childhood traumas and a physiological disorder, e.g., fibro; How can the memories of those traumas be changed; and How can those changes result in a change in physiology? Those questions sent me back to school. More questions from participation in a research study: 7 of 8 the subjects transformed out of fibro (the one who did not was the only one following conventional medical thinking), and of the 7, only 2 of us used the same modality. So what was going on? This was my quest. Result: my questions were successfully answered…and I can explain when we meet if you wish…

Italy & Israel classical, which I never liked when I was younger. The music today could never duplicate the music from the 50's. This question reminds me of the slam books that we used to have in junior high. It was always a suprise to see what others thought of you. If they are my friends they must think I am a caring person. Nothing really. I am grateful for the life I have had. 2012-08-06 21:33:27

Life has done well by me, 6 successful children, 20 grandchildren and 2.3 greats.  Times have not always been easy, but with a little guidence from God, I have made it thru but not without the help of my loving spouse Becky.  As with all gooid marriages the man stands in the front supported by a strong supporting woman.  [no chauvinist here lol].  

I often think of those days of my youth and wish I may have used them more wisely but it is what it is and I am satisfied with the results.

50 years already-impossible, we can't possibly be old.

Occupation:  Retired-Finally, following six years in the Navy and the remainder of my workin' days at Northwest Airlines-as an aircraft mechanic, but I found my true calling as a union representative shortly after beginning my Northwest Airlines stint. For 37+ years I was privileged to serve n many Union positions and as the editor of our monthly paper.

Being retired one wonders how we ever had time to work. Friends and family consume a lot of time. My position with my favorite charity also eats up many hours of these fast-flying days. Can't quite seem to find enough hours to get the "important things" done. Oh well, there's always next Saturday. Wait a minute-I've got six Saturdays and one Sunday every week now!

 This will be the first reunion I have attended, and have great hopes that very faint memories will be jogged by the experience! 

For general information, I discovered an interest in architecture (even though I worked as a geek in community theater a lot during HS) in High School, and after going to St. Olaf went on to graduate architecture school. Since 1976 have been part of a unique firm in Northfield that specializes in church design, historic preservation, educational and non-profit organizational work, as well as designing private residences. Now its president. No plans to retire anytime soon.

Jennifer (Harvey) Edwins and I have had two boys now launched in architecture and web design. Jennifer works in the management of the Carleton College Library in Northfield.

Go figure.  My two boys, Scott and Steve live in South Dakota.

After H.S. I planned on going into nursing.  I was accepted to Northwestern's Hospital Diploma program, but had to leave, due to back problems.  I was devastated, as I had wanted to be a nurse, since the age of six.

Before I got back into nursing, I married David Smith, another 1961 classmate, in 1963.  We were married 20 years and had three wonderful sons.

In 1965 I decided to look into going back to school to complete my nursing degree. I graduated from St. Mary's Jr College, in 1967, getting my A.D. in nursing.  I completed my B.S degree in 1979, by attending night classes in St. Paul, MN. The classes were offered off campus through the College of St. Francis, in Joliet, IL.  This enabled me to continue working at Methodist Hospital, in St. Louis Park, to pay for schooling. After getting my B.S. degree, I attended the U.of MN,  getting my Nurse Practitioner Certification in 1981.  While working at Methodist, I restarted night classes, through the College of St. Francis, and completed my M.S in Health Administration, in 1987.

I worked at Park Nicollet Medical Center and Methodist Hospital in the Oncology and Primary Care Departments, for 32 years.  I retired in 2001 to take care of my mother, who had had a stroke, and was in need of total nursing care.

I married Ed Strohmayer in 1988.  He has three sons and a daughter, from a previous marriage.  We now have 17 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

Our life has been busy with the children, grandchildren and travel, since our retirement.

I had a wonderful time at the reunion; all the special activities, seeing past classmates, and just reminiscing about the past.  Thanks to all the steering and planning committees.  You did an exceptional job!!!
