We continue to live in Lincoln 1/2 the year since Matt serves as State Senator. Next year is his 8th year of serving in District 36 & then he will be termed out. (I am looking forward to a less hectic lifestyle & time to relax & enjoy family & friends.)

The past 4 years I have served as Vice President for two years & President for two years in our Legislative League for spouses of State Senators. I also serve on the UNMC Board of Counselors.

During our 47 years in Gothenburg we have served & continue to serve & attend The First Presbyterian church in Gothenburg!! [And Southern Heights Presbyterian Church in Lincoln]

We enjoy spending time with our family & friends. Love attending all of our grandchildren’s activities!!

We look forward to more time with family and R & R at Jeffrey Lake next year following Matt’s retirement from Nebraska Legislature. Also hope to take some vacations.

The only vacation/trip we’ve taken during the past seven years is a wonderful European Cruise to celebrate our 50th anniversary!
We met 3 other coupes celebrating their anniversary & made life long friends!!

Look forward to seeing everyone at our 55th reunion! 🧡🖤
