Since leaving Wilby, I have continued to have a good time enjoying God's good earth. I, like many others, have had my ups and downs but I always try to stay on the "sunny side" of life. I had a wonderful man, Glenn Ash, whom I was married to for 23 great years, who passed away approximately 5 yrs. ago. We had two sons, one of which has blessed me with two beautiful grandchildren; a grandson Jared and a granddaughter Liana. They are my pride and joy! I continue to keep busy with work, family, church, volunteering and of course going out with my friends, who I might add are the best friends I could ask for. Love blues music and live concerts. Can't wait to catch up with old classmates at our next reunion.

School Story:

Some of my favorite memories related to our gym class with Miss Casey. I remember when Miss Casey was in the water asking someone to use the pole to help her in, (she was demonstrating someone in distress) and I hit her on the head with the pole. All the "P" girls along the wall were hysterical. Oops!

Also, same class, remember the girls that ran from our gym class to the locker room to peek on the guys swimming when a poor unexpected food delivery man was accidentally tackled and knocked down. I thought we were dead for sure on that one. Kudos to my friends on that one.

What about the days when everyone listened to "It's A Beautiful Morning", which was our clue to not show up at class but meet at the local coffee shop instead.

For a serious memory, it had to be the walk out controversy over black history with people from other schools, coming over to Wilby causing chaos, tension, etc. Being attacked by people who didn't know you but judged you because of your race.I for one had many black friends who I cherished then and always will. It was an awkward time.

My last memory was being the first class of Wilby High School to graduate in Library Park. It was the greatest! Thanks WILBY....
