I was born in Texas and moved to Oregon with my parents in 1963. I lived in Gervais on 1st Street most of my life and went to Gervais Elementary (Go Raiders!), then graduated from Gervais Union High (Go Cougars!). I have 4 children who all attended Gervais schools. I have 7 grandchildren. I love to cook, quilt and crochet. I do have some college credits from CCC.
