Ron and I celebrated our 50th anniversary Jan. 29, 17. Had a lovely reception given by our kids. 2 days later left on a cruise to Cozumel and Grand Cayman Islands...gift from our kids. Our oldest granddaughter, Paige, got married last October and in June she moved from St. Francis to OSF Medical Center, Blm. Now has her nights free. So we have added a new Grandson-in-law Joe Dennis. Darien grad. ISU in 3 years and is employed at State Farm. Their sister Chloe is a Sr. at EPG. Grandaughter, Madison works for the Streator Public Library and our other Granddaughter, Stephanie has now given us 2 great-grandchildren, Brookie, 4 and Ryder, 1 1/2. Our Grandson, Skylar works at 4 Seasons. Our two kids, Matt and Mandi, keep plenty busy with their families. We enjoy each and every minute we get to spend with them.

School Story:

The one thing that remains in my mind is it seemed every morning my homeroom class would check to see whether or not I was wearing Ron's class ring Ha, ha....the joke was on them. We have been married 50 years....and not one time has my wedding ring been off. (Mornings were just not Ron's best time back then.) Now he is a morning person and me, not so much, especially after retiring.

I can remember in my Freshman year worrying about remembering my combination to my locker over Christmas break....so I ended up writing it down in my notebook!! :)

I am so sorry to hear that Mike passed away. I don't get into our site very often and realize is has been several years since he passed.  Mike was one of the kindest guys in our class...always ready to answer a question if you needed help.  So intelligent and it sounds like he led a wonderful life personally and professionally. I am sure he is missed by everyone who knew him.

Norma was a good friend from grade school through high school. I was at her house a lot in our grade school and Jr High years and knew both her mother and father....they were all good people!!  I remember when Ron and I got married back in '67 Norma was at our wedding, 9" of snow and all. She gave us a lovely quilt that we had and used until just a few years ago. By then it had some holes in it as it had withstood many years of use. God Bless You, Norma.....you are missed!!!  Rae

Hi Judy! It sounds like you have lived a wonderful God filled life. I can think of no better way to live our lives. I am sorry to hear you are now in a wheelchair, but I know that isn't stopping you from living your life for God Blessings to you, my friend! Rae Ann Robb Geske.

Tobi was one of the sweetest girls in high school.  She never failed to smile and say Hi! in the hallway. She was so well loved by all who knew her.  She was just adorable!!

Joe was one of the first friends I made in high school.  Joe and his wife, Becky and their daughter, Angie remained good friends to Ron and I thru the years. Angie and our daughter were and are very good friends.  One thing I will always remember is the night our son, Matt and I took our church youth group to their home to sing Christmas carols. Joe was not feeling well at all, but he sure did enjoy those kids singing Christmas carols to them....a wonderful memory!!!

Torchie was just a blast!!  She was always full of laughter and fun and so easy to be around.  That red hair, of course, earned her the nickname of "Torchie".  She was a great gal!!!

To all of us who went to grade school with Donna will always remember her as DeeDee.  From 1st grade until she passed we remained good friends.  She, her brother and parents lived one block away from me for many years and she was just the best!!!  smiley

Norma was a really good friend from grade school on up. We remained friends even as we grew into adults. We finally had to throw the quilt away that she gave us when we got married, but we had it forever and when we used it I always thought of her.  smiley

Malter, somehow I never knew you in school, although Ron did!  But I am good friends with your sister, Kim, and I know how much she misses you.  Through Ron and Kim I feel that had we met I would have also been your friend!!

Peggy, you were one of the sweetest girls I have ever met and had a huge heart full of love for everyone.  It was so good to visit with you at your Grandmother's visitation....even under the circumstances.  Your grandmother, Jessie Shirk Nelson, was a very good friend of mine and I will always miss you both and think of you with love.
