Living life to the fullest. I took the opportunity after HS graduation to be young. I went to JCCC one year, then Wichita State (where I learned to really play)! In 1984, I moved to Houston, Texas to work for Corrigan's Jewelers as Office Manager. After being there only 6 months, my family endured the horrible tragedy of losing my sister, Sara Kathryn Winston Soderberg (Class of '76) by a drunk driver accident in Wichita, KS. He sister did not! My sister had two children at the time of the accident...they were 6 and 7. Although my niece and nephew have moved several times when they grew up, they are both back in Wichita, KS and will be very special to me always and forever. Today finds me working part time and caregiver for both my mom and dad. I am very blessed to still have them both!!!

Favorite School Memory/Story:

Working as a lab assistant for Dr. Jernigan! Quite the experience!

Hey Mike....the SMS '78 Dining Divas & Dudes dinner for March is this weekend on Saturday at Cinzetti's in Overland Park. Do you think you and your wife could make it? I think Craig Jack is hosting this one...don't even remember him from high school. I have been remeeting a lot of people since joining this group!

I do not have children. My husband and I were trying to have a baby when I found out he was spending time with other women! Soon after our divorce I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer (which may have been why I couldn't get pregnant!). I had surgery for a full hysterectomy plus in 2001 and went through 6 months of chemo. I was told then that I had 50-60% chance to live 5 years and here I am about to celebrate 13 years in remission from the disease in December!!!!! But I have 7 nieces and nephews and 10 great-nieces and nephews that always want to spend time with Aunt Mary! The nice thing about that is I can send them home! Yes, I do feel very lucky to have both of my parents alive and still together....this year will be their 61st anniversary. You don't see that very often. They have each had their own medical issues and they are each slowing down, but I try to get them out as much as possible. Dad is still mowing his grass but this will probably be the last year that happens. They still live in the same house as they bought in 1971! I've asked if they would rather be in another house that didn't have stairs but OH NO! Sometimes it is better not to argue! Hope life is treating you well. I did not make it to the 35th last year, I took mom & dad to Riverside, California for my mom's family reunion. This year providing they are up to it we will go to North Carolina to see dad's side of the family. Not too many more years are they going to feel like messing with the woes of air travel. It is not old people friendly!
