Frederick MD Special Ed Teacher Married 3
Attended U of M BA English with Pol Sci. After school worked for non-profits. Had a horrific accident while driving in the snow to work at National Geographic and fractured my femur among other things. But thanks to modern medicine I was able to backpack my way through Europe only a year and a half later! I married the amazing Dan Tolbert in l980 and despite the fact that we are complete opposites in almost every way, we've managed to stay married for over 28 years! We raised three beautiful girls, Maddy Elise and Amy. Our youngest, Amy, just graduated from AU with a double major in Political Science and Theatre. I've been lucky enough to be able to spend most of my summers at the beach n Lewes Del with my parents and I still miss my Dad terribly since he passed away 2 yrs ago. Since Dan owns Regional Landscape Services, I was very fortunate because I could leave work, help with the business and stay home with the kids until they were in middle school. At that time I went back and got my MS in Spec. ed - Early Childhood from Hood College and have been teaching in a very diverse Title I school ever since. I mostly work with autistic children, so it can be very physical and draining! But I love each and every one. We've been living in Frederick, MD for 24 yrs and love it although it's now getting almost as crowded as Mont. County! If you're ever in the area come and visit us. We have a pretty blue Victorian on 4.5 acres that contain the huge MD State Champion English Walnut and our little black scottie dog, Thistle. Send Madelle a MessageSend Madelle a Message

Hot Springs Village Arkansas writer Married 2
During my more structured writing career, I wrote for a weekly newspaper in Eugene, Oregon, as the Editor for the Womens' Weekly Section.� I have also been published in magazines, and most recently in nature publicatons.� My essays and short stories are narrative descriptive, with topics centered around nature.� Arkansas gives me much thought-provoking subject matter as a resident of the 'natural state.'

Joel (retired microbiologist) and I have six adult children between us.� We live in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas, surrounded by lots of wildlife.� We live in a house overlooking a lake and our boat dock.��
My original marriage took me to the Pacific Northwest, where I lived on Mt. Hood for four and a half years.� We moved from there to Eugene, Oregon, where I completed my education, in English and Creative Writing, at the University of Oregon.��
In 2000 I returned to Potomac for care for my aging father.� It was wonderful time spent together.� During that time, I met Joel, and we were married a year later.� He is one terrific guy!��
Life has been good, and I can't believe forty years have passed since high school......and so it goes.......

San Diego, CA 92109 California Retired Married 2
Almost immediately after Churchill I married my high school sweetheart who was WCHS Class of '67 and we moved to San Diego, CA where he was attending college.  We had two sons, now 35 and 37.  We divorced after 14 years and I subsequently married an Ohio State U. transplant to San Diego, an electrical and audio engineer and talented book writer, and we've been happily married for 22 years!  I recently retired after working for various large defense contractors/research & development companies, the last one being SAIC for 20 years.  My oldest son is married and just produced a beautiful grandson...what a joy!  Looking forward to seeing all of you at the reunion, some of whom I've known since Potomac Elementary School--yikes!

Portland OR Tax Consultant Married 1
I received my BA from the University of Michigan and moved to Portland Oregon upon graduation. Various forms of self-employment ensued. A promising landscape gardening career was sabotaged by jealous yard-men who feared my lawn cutting prowess. I then turned my attention to high school teaching. To those of you who have tried this profession – I salute you. Now, purely and simply, I am a tax man. I’ve been married for almost 20 years to the feisty Fran, MSW extraordinaire. My son Adam (26) is a computer engineer in Boston, soon to be transferred to England.  My hobbies are alpine climbing and kayaking. I’ve been kayaking since 1980, a passion that has filled my garage with whitewater and sea kayaks. This summer I’m building a Greenland style kayak in my basement and hope to have it on the water by fall.

Bethesda MD Hospital Chaplain Married 2

My life’s been like a patchwork quilt:  a formative trip in Spring ’72 with fellow students at the College of Wooster to four religious communities in Europe… staying on to live 11 years alongside the ecumenical Community of Taize in Burgundy, France, participating in their work with young people…  sharing life with a Roman Catholic community of sisters nearby (while still remaining a Protestant!)…  returning to the DC area…  thinking that I had lost any chance for romance – until I was “surprised by joy” by LeRoy, a widower with two young children…  10 lively years as we raised our boys…  an opportunity to pursue further education during three wonderful years at Wesley Seminary…  a serendipitous discovery of hospital chaplaincy as a place to do challenging but fulfilling work.  And in case you’re wondering -  I still play the flute!

Annapolis Maryland Juvenile Services Resource Specialist weisiger@djs.state.md.us Widowed 2

Thanks for letting this Whitman Viking runs with the Bulldogs.  I ve been in touch with so many old friends in the past few weeks and it all started with Rob's blog.  Grace Janelle tracked me down at work and here I am.
      The 60's were the best time to come of age. It was such an optimistic time and we really felt we had an opportunity to create a better world. We were able to set up the Bethesda Free Clinic in the early 70's which still operates today.
        Spent 72-73 living out of a sleeping bag while traveling around the US and vagabonding through Europe . Ended up living in Aix-en-Provence and Agra, India (great view of the Taj Mahal from my roof).  Along the way I finished a degree in mental health and moved from Santa Fe to Annapolis where I finally settled down.
      Over the past 39 years I've worked with emotionally disturbed, drug involved and delinquent youth in residential treatment centers, psychiatric hospitals and group homes.  I took the first call for the Montgomery County Hotline, worked in their drop-in ctrs and participated in the contacts teams that went out 24 hrs a day to deal with "bad trips, suicides and psychiatric emergencies.( couldn't let all that adolescent angst experience go to waste).
The last 28 years I've worked with Maryland DJS overseeing clinical services, placements and budget for Anne Arundel, PG and Tri-County.  We've gone from dealling with kids who had a couple of beers and "borrowed" a car to a society destroyed by drugs and impulsive kids with guns that have left me dealing with 7 kids age 12 to 15 charged with murder in the past year. 
      I fell hard for a guy from Finland, Kaarle Koivula, that worked with me and together we built a house on 1 1/2 acres on the South River in Annapolis and had two kids, my talented son, Mikael, 21, who works at the Naval Academy and my beautiful daughter Elisabeth, 19, who just returned from snorkling with sharks and sky diving in Australia and Fiji and leaves for London and Paris the day after the reunion.  History repeats its' self. 
    Three weeks after our 24th aniversary Kaarle died of heart disease after three months and 4 operations.  He'd been suffering from Parkinsons since '89 so in a way it was a blessing, but the past three years have been a challenge.

I plan to retire in three years  to read on my dock, crab and kayak but continue to volunteer with kids. Now that my teenagers are grown I find myself curled up with the dogs every night content and happily suprised with how nicely life turned out.

Annapolis MD Federal Human Resources Mgr (Ret) Single Again 1
I grew up at the corner of Falls Road & Victory Lane so I went to W. Rockville Elem., Julius West Jr. High then Churchill with many of you. I moved to Annapolis after 11th grade so you will find me in the '66 but not '67 yearbook. I graduated from Miami U. (Ohio) with a degree in psychology and stayed for a masters degree in Personnel. I had a career in the Federal service, mostly with the National Science Foundation where I ran an office that hired executives & scientists. I retired a few years ago and moved back to Annapolis.  I am rebuilding my Mom's house while she is in assisted living, and we both plan to move back in in spring 2018.
 
The "now" picture is me on the left, my mom in middle and my daughter on the right.
