  Current Occupation Medical technologist in microbiology, Quest Diagnostics Lab
  Family Stats Married, one cat: Gray Charles
  Hobbies/Special Interests Birdwatching, music, travel, reading
  General Update After finally graduating from college and med. tech. school in 1977, I moved to Seattle for a job and have been working here for 36 years at the same place, essentially, though the company names have changed through mergers and sales. I truly enjoy the work in clinical micro. and the people that I work with, and I'm not ready to retire anytime soon. My husband, Nick, is an architect, and he is ready to retire, so somebody needs to pay for medical costs and trips, and that will be me for several more years, hopefully. I supervised the department for 10 years and am now glad to be back to just the technical benchwork. Nick & I have taken birding trips to Central and South America, which we've enjoyed, and continue to do. I've been in the same reading group of 8 people for 29 years. I've enjoyed good health, with the exception of a skin cancer on my face probably due to all the sunbathing that I used to do. I'm very thankful for the wonderful friendships that I have, and I'll be looking forward to catching up with friends.
  Favorite Memory from High School I have many fond memories of my days at Borah: horseback riding with Sharon in the desert across the New York Canal; running around the neighborhood with Rhonda at night; the time we snuck over to peek in the windows at a party at Rick Lake's; all the dances and live music; waterskiing. I guess these things don't include being at Borah precisely. I remember in D. Pankratz's class, one time when he threw an eraser at a student behind me to wake him up, I reached out with my left hand just at the right time, and caught it. He was impressed and wondered why I wasn't signed up for baseball.
  Most Important Life Lesson Learned I think the key to happiness is to be very thankful for what you have.

  Most Important Life Lesson Learned

Holy smokes - where does one "begin" to answer this! There have been so many - and what is really baffling is why we have to learn some lessons over and over again!

"Pearls of wisdom" from Rhonda's kitchen - "As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down, probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts, too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt, because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back. Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin." Anon. --- "Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect, it just means you've decided to see beyond the imperfections".

  General Update I've livedin Australia since 1972. I've worked as a teacher, teacher-librarian and educational administrator, but have now been retired for nearly 8 years. The last 10 years of my full-time work I spent as a senior manager at the State Library of NSW. Retirement offers wonderful flexibility and a welcome opportunity to choose to work -- or not. After being single for almost 12 years, I bumped into Garry Richards, with whom I'd worked in the mid-70s. Much to our mutual amazement and delight, we found ourselves falling in love and were married in April, 2010. In July, 2012, we left Sydney, where we'd both lived for a long time to move to the Southern Highlands of NSW, about 75 miles southwest. We love the cooler climate, smaller community and relaxed lifestyle. I return to Boise regularly, but continue to be amazed by its growth. It remains a place dear to my heart, but Australia is defnitely home. Come visit and find out why!

  General Update Lori and I celebrated our 20th year together this year. In 2003, I retired after 33 years of playing Army.  Like many, I got bored and went back to work as a civilian working for all people, the Military.  Have seen a good chunk of the Earth we live on, thanks to the all-expenses paid fun filled vacations that only Uncle Sam can give you.  I have found that crawling in some other country's mud will make you really appreciate one's own.  It amazes me how little things can bring so much happiness.  I am referring to being able to grow my hair for the first time in my adult life.  Something you all did when you were in your 20's.  Better late than never - my hair has changed color but it's still here (more than some can say). I have found that burying family and friends is life itself. I am proud to have served my country as a soldier and if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing.

  Family Stats Married, 3 boys (24, 31, 35) & 3 grandchildren (11,7,3). Our three daughters-in-law are wonderful and special.
  Hobbies/Special Interests Playing the piano, organ and autoharp, traveling, flying, camping, riding 4 wheelers, learning Spanish, reading and memorizing songs and special sayings, scuba diving, traveling, traveling on our Honda Gold Wing, and fishing at Flaming Gorge.
  General Update My husband is a retired pilot but does contract back to the US government. I still teach piano but I only teach 1 day a week now. We now have time to spend 2 -3 months in the Dominican Republic each winter. We volunteer in our church to help with humanitarian aid for the Puerto Plata area. I am very happy to be alive and well but the past 10 years have been very difficult. At one time, I almost died of a staph infection in my blood. Then after three major surgeries in 19 months, have taken two years to get to the point where I can exercise enough to start getting off the weight I gained while I could not exercise. My back was fused at the L4-5 vertebrae and now my back feels better than it has in 42 years! Some accidents that I had as a teenager took about 25 years off the life of my back. I am hoping to make up for lost time and enjoy biking, hiking and bowling again.
  Favorite Memory from High School Having great friends to enjoy being with and going with to activities.

  Current Occupation Geographic Information System Analyst, Idaho Power Company
  Family Stats Married
  Hobbies/Special Interests Traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest, enjoying all sports, especially Boise State University basketball and football, photography, golfing and bike riding.
  General Update After graduating from Borah, I enlisted in the US Navy. Completing boot camp several months later, my next stop was Viet Nam, to board the USS Fort Marion LSD 22. We completed our tour of duty, then off to Bremerton, WA, via San Diego, to de-commission the ship. The Naval Amphibious Base in Coronado, CA, was my last stop, working as an assault/liberty boat coxswain. On my duty days, it was fun driving the boats around San Diego harbor, day and night. On August 13, 1970, was honorably discharged from the service and 13 days later, enrolled at Boise State. After graduating from BSU, I worked for several local engineering/land surveying companies that eventually led to my employment at Idaho Power Company in Boise. I'm currently working as a Geographic Information Systems Analyst (GIS) in the GIS Applications group. I've worked for Idaho Power for 31 years and have been married to Sandy (Oliver) Wilbert for 31 years as well.
  Favorite Memory from High School I scheduled a meeting with the principal at Borah in 1967 to discuss returning to school. Following that meeting, my vision changed to stay in school, stay focused and graduate, which I did in 1968.

I see my son a couple of times a week and I try and visit my daughter in Victoria BC as often as possible... it is lovely there. I might retire in Victoria when my mother is no longer around?
  Favorite Memory from High School My favorite memory at Borah was the first pep assembly. It scared me so much... so loud and such loud cheering and the enthusiasm was overwhelming... I had only been to 1 football game in Houston, Texas, when I moved to Borah as a senior. Another memory was being taken up to Bogus Basin and pushed down the hill without knowing what I was doing or how to stop! You can imagine what I looked at the bottom. Spread eagle!
