I married my high school sweetheart, J.R. Stewart, in 1964, the same week I graduated from the U. of Utah in elementary education. I taught school for 4 years while my husband attended medical school here at the U. of Utah.
Since that time I have kept busy with our family, church, friends and travel. Most of my summers for the last 22 years have been spent here at home teaching and organizing swimming lessons along with our children.
Now that we are retired we travel several times a year. 5 years ago we spent 7 weeks and visited 7 countries in Eastern Europe. We traveled by train and without any reservations. We kept in touch with our family through the internet. We found internet cafes to book our reservations. We traveled in Sept. and Oct., so had no problem finding accommodations. Last year my husband and I spent our 45th anniversary in Paris.
We are huge Utah Jazz fans and have had season tickets for 34 years. I love to crochet, play tennis and swim.
I love being a grandmother to our 23 grandchildren. 5 of our 6 children live near us. One daughter lives in Vancouver, WA., with her 5 children.
In June, 2014, we celebrated our 50th anniversary with all our family. We rented cabins near Jackson Hole, spent time in Yellowstone and floated down the white water rapids. It isn't often we are all together and it was a wonderful week.
Our 55th reunion was wonderful. Hopefully we will see even more at our 60th!
I have a wonderful family and good health (considering my age). Life is definitely good!

School Story:

I have so many wonderful memories of South High. Life long friends that I still see from time to time. My favorite memories are Pep Club,
A 'cappella choir, school plays (The Mikado and Amahl and the Night Visitors ), pep assemblies and of course all the games. A bad memory....Mr. Gerrish and Chemistry...Does anyone remember the day he threw everyone out of the class that had their heads on their desks? No, I wasn't one of them. But he did give me my one and only bad grade while at South.
I love going back to South High and attending the Grand theatre plays. I don't think we realized how beautiful the building was when we were students.

I have enjoyed reading the comments about memories of Wayne Margetts.  My earliest memories of Wayne was when we both attended Hawthorne Elementary school.  I remember having a discussion with some of my friends, that if we were ever able to go on a quiz show to make thousands of dollars, we would want to take Wayne with us.  It was obvious at an early age just how intelligent Wayne was.  Sending love and condolences to his family!
