From the 40th reunion information, Joyce wrote:

Highlights of Your Life Over the Past 40 Years:

I am married to my best friend. Ed is retired after 23 years in the Navy. He continues to work in

the medical field.

As for me – I worked many years I retail. I am now S.S. disabled due to several medical

problems. If it weren’t for my computer I would go nuts. I can almost always be found with my

face in a book (some things never change). Ed and I share many of the same interests, camping,

fishing, and hunting. We square danced for a couple of years until my medical problems

squashed that – we sure did enjoy it. We are die-hard Mariners fans and we love country music.

We have 4 wonderful children.

We love the Oregon Coast and would like to retire there some day. I

never did go to college. I am not a Rocket Scientist or a world traveler,

but I did raise some wonderful, loving and caring children and I am

proud of that.
