Residing In: El Sobrante, CA USA

Yes! Attending Reunion

I graduated from UC Davis in 1973 with a BA in French, in 1975 with a MA in French, and in 1977 with a Teaching Credential. I have been working at Cal since 1986, and I am currently on the Board of Directors of the Cal Aggie Alumni Association.

I taught high school and college for many years (UC Davis as a TA, Corning High School, and Napa and Solano Colleges). I also worked as a "Crockette" -- Construction Finance Officer at Crocker Bank in SF. After that, I came to Cal, where I've been ever since in a variety of roles.

It's been quite a while since I updated my profile. Sadly, this year, I lost my husband of 35 years after a 24-year long battle with cancer. He fought up until the end, but it just overwhelmed him.

6 weeks before, I had bilateral knee replacement. My cousin was right -- it makes a world of difference. I no longer have any pain in my knees, and walking is once again a pleasure.

School Story:

I don't think I will ever forget Stan Bowman in all his dyed glory!

Happy birthday, cousin! I had double knee replacement a little over a year ago, and you were right -- it's amazing the difference it makes. Gentle reminder -- you promised at our last reunion to tell me what your mom knew about my Grandma Berg -- the whole left on a doorstep thing. I'd really like to know.
