What did you want to do or think you were going to do when you finished high school?

I was going to be a lawyer. I went off to Judson Baptist College and made it a semester. Came home and went to business school to become a legal secretary. Met the love of my life in 1981 and he was killed on our wedding day March 23, 1982. (6 hours before we were to be married). Married on the rebound, divorced 3 years later and was a single mom. Then eventually got married again and studied Medical Billing and Medical Transcription. Worked in the field between having babies and had to retire from it in 2004 when I became disabled with RA. Adopted my youngest grandson Brezden Ravenwalker Lucero Feb. 2009. Now once again a single mom to Cole 14 and Brezden who will be 6 in March. Brezden recently diagnosed with Hyfunctional austism/Aspergers. Many medical appointments. Married again 2013.

Comments:

Married 4 times and all kind of went to the toilet. I think I do better as an independent mom. I am raising Brezden who is now 8 yrs old and has had so many issues. I am living at his father's just out of Bend OR in La Pine OR. We have been here 4 months. My husband could not handle the weather here so he returned to Arizona where he is originally from. Things are going at a slow pace but at least life is not flying by like normal.

School Story:

I moved to Medford in my start of 10th grade. I met most of the classmates in my sophmore year and continued with them through high school. I kept to a small group but happened to be a class clown in many ways. Especially when it came to Ecology class with Mr. Jensen. One day I threw a chalk eraser not expecting it to connect with anything but it connected with Mr. Fink's bald head. Thank the class that they all busted up and so did Mr. Fink. But the look on Mr. Jensen's face was not of laughter. Still a funny memory. I was not much for dating. B average student but still dated off and on. Dated Kevin Crawford and Doug Ainsworth.

What have you always wanted to do that you haven't done yet?

I want to ride with Nascar Driver Jeff Gordon #24. I also want to attend a Celine Dion concert. Both way too expensive. But I can dream!!!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to read, write and then chat with my friends on the computer. I also like to list on eBay and spend time with my family and church family. Presently writing my first novel and have been writing some non-fiction on all different types of abuse that plague America.

Where is the farthest you have been from home?

Victoria Canada

Where is your favorite place to go?

Oregon Coast

Why?

I was born in Portland and raised in Medford from 10th grade up. I lived in Idaho and the inexpensive way to live compared to other states for 16 years and have returned to Oregon. I love going to the beach. I loved attending the 30th Class Reunion and think that this site along with Facebook put more faces together for us all, which made the Reunion a success.

Other than earrings, do you have any body piercings?

No

Do you have any tattoos (that you are willing to admit)?

Yes

What and where?

I got my first tattoo at 50 yrs. old. I never thought I would get one but I got one in memory of a little boy that lost his battle to cancer at 9 years old. I got a monarch butterfly, which Sam loved. So in my tattoo Sam's name is in it. RIP Samuel Gordon Bish.

tattoo is on my right calve of my leg.

This one is on my left calve of my leg.
*Got a purple butterfly with the Lung Cancer Ribbon set behind it, It says Mom on the top then one ribbon says 3/3/40 and the other says 3/3/2012. I lost my mom to lung cancer 3yrs ago.She was looking forward to being 72 and we had a party planned that we went ahead and had in her bedroom where she was in a coma. She passed that evening about 4 hours after her party ended. Rev. Doug Gould officiated. My high school sweetheart Doug Ainsworth was there for myself and my family and was very supportive. Okay.....More tattoos...I have 4 ladybugs that trail from my hand to my wrist in start of putting my kids and grandchildren on all in ladybugs. My ladybugs are covered now and I have an Autism Awareness heart kite on top right Hand and wrist. With Brezy's name on the inside of my right forearm. More tats to come. :)

If you could ask anyone who has ever lived a question, who would it be and what would you ask?

My father...Why?

What would we be suprised to know about you?

Not much has really changed about me since we graduated except I am not as outgoing in person as I am on the phone or on the computer.

Disabled since 2004 but I keep trucking on. Isn't that what a member of the Class of 1979 from MSHS does?

Happy Birthday Girl! You live in the town I wish I lived in. I am a Debbie Macomber fan and have read all her books except the newer ones. I am a Cedar Cove nut as well. Take care and I hope you had a good birthday.
