Hi to all! After graduation I attended two years of college then met my future husband, Dick Ganos the night of the Columbus Day Storm in 1963. Dick and I married in 1965 and have three children. Rich Jr. Born in 1966 Nick, 1968 and Debbie in 1973. After Debbie was born we made the decision that I would stay home with the children until they were a little older. It was great watching them develop. When Debbie was twelve I went back to work. In 1993 we quite our jobs, sold our home and with the children and moved to Boise, Id., to help our daughter and son-in-law start up their window covering business. We lived on savings for two years and Dick decided we needed to go back to work and pay into our savings again. He headed back to Oregon and got a job at Bonneville Dam. We moved to Carson, WA., to be closer to his job. Two things happened in 2002, our oldest son was diagnosed with cancer and our daughter Debbie was diagnosed with a miracle, our one and only granddaughter. It was the best of times and the worst of times. Rich lost his battle to cancer in 2006. Our granddaughter is now 8 years old and the joy of all our lives. Last year we bought our retirement home in Bend, Or. We co-bought it with Debbie and her family which includes our little eight year old granddaughter. Dick is set to retire in September of this year and will be very happy to live here with us instead of coming over every weekend (weather permitting).
I won’t be able to attend the reunion but I have loved the updates on the blog. Have a great time every one and God Bless.
As an important point of information, Charlene Case who attended the first 10 years of school in Willamette and at West Linn High School with our class has passed away.
