November 23, 1943 Dove Mountain Tucson AZ US 85743 Retired Developer/General Contractor Divorced 3 Travel, Dancing & Sports Cars. Italy Country, Pop & R&B. Fun and always busy. Nothing 2013-12-21 06:52:24
I haven't been back to Minnesota since I moved to Tucson in 1982. The last time I was there the mosquitoes tried to eat me alive and I never went back.

My son turned 44 this year and thinks he's getting old, what I wouldn't give to be old like him again. I also have two daughters, Angie aged 41 and Missy aged 38. My eldest Grandchild Ashley is married and has a two year old daughter and my youngest Grandchild Katie is getting her college degree this spring.

I'm thoroughly enjoying retirement and have been going on road trips all over the Western US.

It has been a lot of fun looking through this website and at all the classmate bios. It also was fun seeing some of my classmates from Brookside grade school and seems impossible that it has been over 50 years since we all graduated.

Married 1 Golf, Hiking and biking, especially in the Colorado Rockies. Italy and Mexico. My wife and I would love to go back to Italy. I would someday also like to visit Australia and New Zealand. However, there is a lot of the U.S. that I haven't experienced yet either, and I would like to do that also. Mostly soft rock - Eagles, that type. Some Country music, the older type like Merle Haggard, Waylon, Willie. When I am in the mood, I like Aerosmith. I still enjoy Elvis. I listen to the Elvis channel on XM radio whenever I can Older, but young for my age. I'd like to think they would describe me as a good friend with a good sense of humor.
I've thought about this a lot in recent years. If I had it to do over, I would like to take more chances in life. I settled in at an early age with having a family, a job to support them, and that's pretty much what it has been. No complaints, but I think I could have made more of my life than I did.
I spent most of my life trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up... I think I wanted to be retired.

It is hard to believe that 50 years have passed since we vacated the halls of Park High to face the challenges and mysteries that awaited us.
Wondering, what's out there? 
Now we know!

I personally, have been very blessed with good health, good friends, 2 loving wives (not at the same time), a wonderful son and 3 beautiful grand-children. 
I just retired 2 weeks ago and am looking forward to the next phase of my life.  It is kind of like graduating from high school.
What awaits us next?

I am still 17 years old (in my mind) and can't imagine how I have two grown sons and five grandkids - 4 boys and 1 girl.  

I married Chuck, my senior year high school sweetie, in 1964.   We have remained in the western suburbs all these years. 

Our sons, Jeff and Kevin, have both lived out of state after college, but we are so lucky that our kids now live in the area and we see them often. Jeff and Mindy, Daniel and Jordan live in Eden Prairie.  Kevin and Nina, Jacob and twins Adam and Annie live in Plymouth.

The years have flown by it seems and I look forward to reconnecting wtih some of my former classmates at this reunion.

January 03, 1943 (763) 504-9444 (763) 504-9444 5721 Zane Ave North Crystal MN US 55429 Retired data entry Married 3 As far as hobbies go I am almost blind so I listen to books on tape and walk our dog around the block. We have been to Canada, Mexico, and many of the states. If I must, I listen to Christian Music. Because Janet Peterson Nelson, my oldest friend from grade school (Fern Hill) to now, is typing this for me, she will tell you that I am a very quiet person, and not too out going. I am also a good Christian, and try to help my family and friends when I can. Janet will say I am (sometimes difficult). It took months and months and many phone calls to get this much information from me.
If I could change anything I would hope for better health, which would help me see better.

To have my family live closer to us so that I could see them more often, as they all live in other states, and I miss seeing them all.

Because I use "snail mail", this entry is being done by my "administrative assistant" and longtime (60+ yrs) friend and classmate, Janet (Peterson) Nelson.

I have been married to my husband, Chuck, for 34 years.  I had 2 children and he had 6 children.  Together we have 19 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.  We lived 26 years in Menahga, Mn. and 8 yrs ago we moved to Brooten, Mn., my husband's hometown. 

My step-daughter and family live in "beautiful" Vancouver, B.C.  We go as often as we can. 

We hosted an exchange student from Konsmo, Norway (NW of Oslo). We visited her and her family.  Great trip.  

Some of my favorite activities are: 
quilting at home and church; 
volunteering at Green Lake Bible Camp; 
Dollars for Scholars while in Menahga;
my Mon - Fri coffee group (affectionately known as "the local 'View'"); 
spending time with grandchildren, my sister, the "Glo" girls and family.  
 
I'm looking forward to the 50th class reunion and getting reacquainted. "Thank you" to the committee!  I know I have "snail mail", but I enjoy sending cards and letters and receiving them. 

Fern Hill was my elementary school.

August 30, 1943 The Old Bull Pen - 9 Hamilton Lane Great Brington Northampton GB NN7 4JJ Company Director Widowed I suppose spending time with friends, doing lots of stuff and spending time with me, ditto...walking, reading, drinking, swimming, laughing, travelling, remaining engaged & rewarded / being engaging & rewarding ...most of Europe & the Far East (my brother, Sheldon SLP'63, lives in Laos), all 50 states + Canada & Mexico, Australia/New Zealand where we lived for a year and a bit of Africa & South America - only Antarctica to go... Classical I'll ask them and get back to you... unless it's things I didn't want to hear and hence wouldn't want to share. No point in having any regrets - ever - but it's still possible to learn from one's - and others' - mistakes... 2012-08-06 21:33:33
First off:  better late than never with this profile - and missing you already.  Sorry I shan't be reuning, but time ran out on getting a hair transplant and losing three stone (as they measure weight over here) -- here being England where I've lived for the past 23 years...
Post-Carleton:  M.A. in English lit at Wesleyan University, then taught in Westchester County NY, moved to NYC and worked for Newsweek & Sports Illustrated magazines, then met & married an "international businesswoman", actually bought and lived in the famiily home in StLP for two years (at the time of our 25th, in fact, which I attended with Neil Sandstad & Georgia  Matsumoto) between living in Australia & England which has been my home now for nearly 1/3 of my life.  Recently, profoundly sadly widowed and trying to keep "things" together.  I help to run the largest, privately held photographic library in Europe which is represented exclusively & internationally by Getty Images.  I'm active in my picture-postcard stone & thatch village just up the lane from Althorp, where Princess Diana is buried; I serve on Northamptonshire county committees for the British Red Cross and Macmillan Cancer Support; I held the post of churchwarden at our parish church - which was also held by George Washington's great-great-great-great uncle in the early 17th century; and I'm very partial to vodka martinis.
Finally, just to say -- all the reunion materials & information are truly amazing and I've shared them with friends who are planning their own 50th's in high schools in Boston & Honolulu.
Thank you.
And...I've already diaried our 60th.
P.S.  I'm in touch with Jack Loegering's widow & sons who live in Dallas.
P.P.S.  Does anyone know how Mary Mayhew can be contacted?  I have a particular pecuniary reason for asking...

Country Optimistic, organized, attractive, fun,
outspoken, hard worker, and I'm sure some I don't know about!
My Dad has a saying, "It's water over the dam". I've been blessed with a good life and am thankful for it.
I sold air filters for HVAC systems in commercial buildings for 27 years, just in the process of retiring, and handing over the reins to my son. Plan to spend a lot of time at our lake place in McGregor, MN. My Dad built it in 1956 and we were able to purchase the land, 40 acres, and cabin. Now we have 80 acres and Amy, David, and my brother each have a cabin too.
It's a "high maintenance" place with no electricity, running water, or road maintenance for 3 miles, but we do have "Direct TV"! Luckily I married someone who enjoys the remoteness, and challenges. Take a look at the fish I caught this weekend! Just had to show the boys [Jeff Lava, Bill Rosso, and Jack Rasmussen] the girls can catch em too. Jack took the "biggest fish" prize, but I'll take second!

50 years! Hard to believe, I remember my parents going to their 50 year class reunion, and I'm sure they were much older than we are.  But then again my daughter, the baby, turns 40 this year, my son is 43 and I now have 4 grand children ranging in age from 4 to 14. I'm very fortunate that all of them still live near by giving me the opportunity to be with them often. They are very sports minded-- hockey in the winter, softball in the spring, La Crosse in the summer, running, biking, swimming, skiing.  I am a great supporter and love to cheer them on.   I have worked most of my adult life--Started as a speech therapist, but soon discovered that was not my thing.  Have spent  most of my career in sales within the hearing industry, working for manufacturers.  I retired 6 weeks ago and am learning to live the life of a retiree.  I think I'm getting the hang of it-playing golf, reading, spending time with the kids and grand kids. I'm incredibly lucky to have a few close friends, some going all the way back to high school, who are fun, active, supportive and caring.

August 12, 1943 (601) 898-3168 (601) 898-3168 691 Hazelton Drive Madison MS US 39110 Retired Married 1 Reading, Watching (Public) TV, Gardening (Roses), Kairos (Ecumenical Prison Ministry) Ireland, Italy, Spain, Yugoslavia, Canada, Mexico Classical, Choral, 50s, 60s, Folk, Broadway shows If I had any friends I would hope they would say I was trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent because I have not been all of those things. And of course, I would hope they would say a little bit humorous.

I would hope they would say I was kind and generous, because I try to be. They might also say I was organized--to the point of being obsessive.
I have been blessed with a loving wife for 41 years, loving, caring and supporting friends and family.

If I regret one thing it is that I will never be able to dance with our only child--a daughter--at her weddding. A 2lb. preemie, Leslie was born at Walter Reed in Washington D.C. She graduated from the Univ of Missouri in Journalism and loved working in NYC. In 1999 Les suffered significant head trama in a fall on Mother's Day and died the following day. Her gift of life to others is our blessing. We think of her every day.

Many, many thanks to the team organizing the reunion for August 2011.  

After Lenox, Central Junior High (split days) and graduation tried to avoid draft by staying at the "U" as long as I could--doing a five year double major in Communications (Television) and Broadcast Journalism. 

After year of post-graduate work in Broadcast Journalism at "U," Uncle Sam drafted me, but I enlisted in Army to have some choices.

I was fortunate to spend some time in TV Production at Fort Sill, OK, before being selected to work in communications at the White House for 2+ years under LBJ and Nixon.  

After that, nearly 40 years in public broadcasting as Producer/Director, Production Manager in WV and OH and 20 years as a Prog Mgr and Prog Dir in NJ, PA and MS.

Married in 1969 to a wonderful person who still tries to understand me.  Wife is teaching and keeping me in a manner to which I have become accustomed.

Rock 'n Roll, Oldies, and some country Seeing that a friend is writing this for me, she will say that I am pretty easy going, fun loving, church going, hunter, and maybe a little stubborn. I have had a pretty good life, with a loving family and friends so I don't think I would change much. 2012-08-06 21:33:24
As some of you know I was married to our class mate and best friend Mary Williams for 42 years, until her untimely death from cancer.  We were married when we both attended the U of M and had 4 great children, who gave us 7 wonderful grandchildren.  Two (twins) of them will be going off to college in the fall.
 
I have retired from UMD in Duluth and have my own small electrical company (me), that I try to fit in between my hunting trips,  vacations with my son, and watching the grandchildren when possible.  I also try and fit in a social life.  So I guess I have had and still have a pretty good life.

I am looking forward to hearing what other '61 graduates are doing!  Unfortunately, I lost contact with most of my St. Louis Park friends after high school and college.

I retired in 2006 after being a special education teacher for 30 years.  I continue to stay involved in the field by being an advocate for some of my friend's children who have special needs.

I attended Lenox  (kindergarten and first grades) and Fern Hill (second through sixth).  When I taught for Intermediate District #287, I was assigned to a student at Torah Academy (formerly Fern HIll).  It was very strange to go back to my old elementary school!

I would like to visit Sweden and find my grandma's farmhouse...I'm just sure it's there...and France and India. All up-coming trips... Beethoven, Mozart, Tonic Sol-fa and...Elvis. Happy, creative, content... See comments below...
AND I really wish I had met Elvis...
2012-08-06 21:33:30

I truly don’t feel any older than I did at graduation...BUT I do have a daughter who just turned forty so apparently SOME time must have elapsed!  But fifty years...incredible! 

 

I’m still working... for the City of Maple Grove as well as with my interior design clients... http://www.joannlowriedesign.com ...so I get to use both sides of my brain most of the time....except during my commute and our Minnesota snowstorms!   I’ve been to college twice; once at Mankato State and much later at the University of Minnesota’s School of Architecture while Ralph Rapson was dean...a truly remarkable, amazing, transforming experience!  I was married to Tom Lowrie in 1963; had my beautiful daughter, Noelle, in 1970; and was happily divorced in 1984.  I’ve worked as an architect for Setter, Leach and Lindstrom in Minneapolis; an interior designer for a design center in Buffalo, Minnesota; a residential appraiser for the City of Plymouth; served as a member of the Minnesota Design Team for ten years and now am enjoying wildflower gardening, antiquing, playing piano, mini-scrapbooking for family, friends and General Mills, reading...mostly biographies, drawing house portraits, playing E and F part-time in an English handbell choir, researching my Swedish roots...and loving my granddog, ellie the chihuahua (who has her own website and is really a human trapped in a dog’s body, I’m sure!)   

 

I’m very blessed to still have my mom and aunt around...they will both be 94 on August 1st as they are identical twins (by birth but not by temperament, that’s for sure!)... as well as two sisters, a brother, two wonderful nieces and a nephew...plus a very talented nephew–in-law, Brian Applegate, who designs and fabricates Applegate guitars right out of his workshop in Chanhassen, Minnesota.  I still miss my dad, who died in 2003 at age 90 after a heart-breaking bout with cancer.  He was my hero, my true North, a man who impressed everyone who met him with his intelligence and humility, a WWII Army lieutenant colonel stationed on Bougainville Island in the South Pacific whose calm demeanor and desert-dry sense of humor reassured all 150 of the men in his company, the person who taught me how important it is to recognize and enjoy life’s simple blessings, and in his final days, the loving father who taught all of his children how to die with courage and dignity and simple surrender.  If I could change anything at all, it would be to have the monstrous disease that took his life wiped off the face of the earth forever...

 

I’m just so happy and content almost every single day...except during my commute and our Minnesota snowstorms!  I love everything that I do, love all the experiences...both good and bad...that I’ve been privileged to have had, love all the people in my life...looking forward to our 55th reunion to see if we will all start looking younger.  I’m sure that this aging thing shifts into reverse at some point...

P.S.  Women!!  Both my aunt and daughter complained about the NOW photo I first used...so to please them, I have changed it...it now INCLUDES my aunt and also WASN'T taken right after my daughter's tonsillectomy surgery...hope this makes them happy...

I have a B.A. in English, music, and secondary education from Hamline University. One of the joys of my life was to obtain a Master of Arts in Theology and Certificate in Pastoral Ministry, graduating in 2005 (at age 61) from the College of St. Catherine. Loved the intellectual stimulation.

I've taught English 10 and 12 in Robbinsdale; worked for U of M Hospitals and Health Sciences; spent 30 years as a communications consultant; and ended with public relations for a wildlife refuge and market development for PDI.

My husband Curt suffers from chronic leukemia now, but is retired from the City of Fridley (engineering and parks). Our older son Eric is 39, with a masters in glass. He teaches glassblowing and other art subjects at Anoka-Ramsey CC. Our younger son Curtis is 37, with a certificate in massage therapy. He is an awesome drummer and works for the City of Brooklyn Center.

My best friend since the age of 3 is Jan Kusano, known to you as Janet Kripps, also class of '61, and here for the reunion from Austin, Texas.

Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, France, Italy, Switzerland. Celebrated our 25th anniversary in Hawaii. Light classical, easy listening, oldies, old time Hopefully, caring, thoughtful, conscientious, giving. Had I known earlier what I know now, I would have been more assertive with doctors about having scoliosis surgery at a younger age when my frame was strong enough to support the hardware. 2012-08-06 21:33:32

After high school, Sharon Herrmann and I became freshman roommates at Mankato State College.  The summer of '63 I toured Western Europe with 27 others from Lutheran Student Association campuses across the US.  Also visited the home of Mort Kelstrup in Denmark--they were wonderful hosts.

  I met my husband, Frank, at Mankato State, where we both graduated with degrees in Business Administration and were married the summer of '66.  We moved to Macomb, IL where we both worked at Western Illinois Univ.  In 1976 we moved to St. Cloud, MN where he became Director of Financial Aid at SCSU, retiring in 2007.  In 2005 we moved into a new home which we designed and built on the south side of St. Cloud.  Frank has been finishing the lower level during his retirement.

Our son, Todd, works for General Mills and lives in Plymouth, MN with his wife and daughters, ages 7 and 11.  After graduating from Gustavus Adolphus College, he studied one semester in Vaxjo, Sweden.  Our daughter, Melanie, attended Concordia College, Moorhead, and also toured Europe after graduation.  She works part-time in the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit at Fairview Univ. Hospital, Minneapolis.  She lives in South Minneapolis  with her husband and daughter, age 2.  Their second daughter is due Nov. 2.  She also has two step-daughters, 18 and 21.

We feel blessed to have just celebrated our 45th anniversary, and that our children and grandchildren live close so that we can enjoy being with them often.

Art observe, not produce-yet. Theater observe, not act-ever. Music, listen, not play again-yet. Most of Western Europe; Mexico; Canada. Let me put it this way--my son has traveled much more than I have. All music, but I'm always ready for rock 'n roll. Good question! I may consider asking them, but I hesitate. Best guesses. Usually fun but a little out there at times. Usually reliable but a little out there at times. Good person to play tennis or golf with because they can always beat me. It has not been perfect. It has all worked out reasonbably well. What would I change? At least one relationship decision. Not being an orthodontist and solely focused on braces (every kid gets braces these days)-my son didn't take this advice either despite whispering subliminal messages in his ear at night when he was a little guy. Not taking typing classes and harassing the guys who did. 2012-08-06 21:33:29
My great admiration for the tremendous work by our classmates responsible for '61 IT'S NOW OR NEVER. "Far out". I don't know anyone who has had a reunion of this magnitude.
When I moved to Oregon in 1973 for training, I didn't really know where Oregon was, just that it was near California, which was my ultimate goal (like about everyone leaving Minn).
As an expatriate (of Minnesota), I have to say that I didn't have a full appreciation for Minnesota until I discovered Garrison Keillor (a U of M student when we were there)  and Prairie Home Companion by accident on the radio many years ago while driving between Portland and Seattle. Now I live vicariously.

 I practiced Pediatrics for 9 years (1975-1984). I then became the Medical Director for a national insurance company where I started HMOs throughout the country (1984-1990). In 1990, until I retired, I was a consultant to large employers on their health care benefits for their employees. I retired in 2007. Since retiring, I started a free pediatric clinic at Sabathani Community Center which I staff 2 one-half days per week.

I have been married for 35 years. We have one daughter and one granddaughter. My wife is a psychotherapist and has a private practice.
