I graduated from Madison, Rick's, and BYU. I got my degree in Elementary Education. I met my husband, who was from the Mormon Colonies in Mexico when I went to Rick's. We were married after I graduated from BYU, in 1970. We moved to Mexico, where we have lived for 41 years. I am still working on my Spanish. It is not so good! We have an English ward here and also a small temple.

Currently: Teach English to 7 Russian students, 2 Slovakian students-online, serve as part time Family History Area Support Missionary, and work in the temple.

School Story:

I loved Madison. As a country girl, I was exposed to the city life by my city friends. Loved that too. Now that I am older, I find that we had excellent English teachers who gave us a great foundation. So many fond memories were made there in high school. We are the product of those golden high school years. As an adult, I have been able to give back to my community because of the things I learned when I was a girl. My education at Madison helped give me the ability to share with others the values, skills, and ideals I learned there as a young girl. How fortunate we all were to grow up with such fine teachers, good friends, and with such a pure sense of life.

Happy birthday, Marsha. How are you doing? Life for me is getting better. My husband passed away 16 months ago and I am learning how to go on without him. What is going on with you? Are you still busy working, or has life changed a bit for you too? Can you believe how quickly life has gone by? Here we are, 69 and hardly got a good start on life! Hope you have a great day. I will be thinking about you.

I just found the year books on youtube. Thank you very much for putting them online. My house burned down in 1999 and I lost all of mine, so I am glad to be able to see them again.

Hi, Julie. I am sure you are buzzing around like a little bee this week. I was going to come home this week, but now have to stay close to Mexico because I have to sign some legal papers that need to be done probably at the end of the week, or the first of next week, depending on what happens with my identification card that I have sent off for. So I will miss you there this weekend. But when things calm down for you, could you give me a call? We can catch up over the phone. My number is: 915 253 7307. Have a good time at the reunion and call me and tell me what happened and who was there.

Hi, how are you doing? I am adjusting to another of life's changes. My husband died of a massive heart attack in Oct and I am trying to learn how to go on without him. I have lived in Mexico for 46 years, and things are so different there. So now I am learning in a short period of time what all of you learned little by little. I have moved back to El Paso, Texas and live with my oldest son and his family. I am not happy about having such an abrupt change, but they tell me that if it is gradual, that is not good either. So I have now rounded that corner of life, have some different perspectives about life now, and am learning many of life's lessons I did not want to learn at all. But I will be fine, I am sure. Yes, you did raise a lot of kids, didn't you? We never did think that we would be doing what we did in life, did we. My 7 boys now have 25 children of their own, and I like being a grandmother. Life has been good for us, and our harvest is turning out to be a great one, for which I am glad. Yes, Norman Bigler taught us a great many lessons besides "English", didn't he! I wished I would have enjoyed him more and been less worried about grades, and more worried about relationships then. I will battle with him in the next life, for he loved that.

Are you still working? I suppose that never stops, does it! So good to read about what is going on with you.

Trisa, what an interesting and busy life you have lead. Where do you live now? I have lived in Mexico since 1970. I now have moved back to El Paso, Texas. I would love to hear from you. My email address is Write to me.

Where have all of the years gone? I recently became widowed, and can't believe that our lives have flown by and we are in that phase of life now. Not fun! Hope you have a good birthday.

Hi, Doug. I hope that you had a happy birthday. My life has changed a bit. My husband passed away from a massive heart attack the 28th of Oct. So I left my house in Mexico to my son who has a family of 5 children, and moved to El Paso, where 6 of my sons live. I can't believe that we are old enough to start this cycle of life. But we are moving forward toward that change now, aren't we! I have so many fond memories of playing with you when I was a child. My mom wouldn't let me play with too many other children, but I was allowed to play with you pretty often, and I loved it. We rode bikes a lot, do you remember? Anyway, take care of yourself.

Oh, my word! Where in the world did that year go? It seems that I was just wishing you a happy birthday a few months ago. I hope you have a good one. I hope the year has been an easy one for you. I am just amazed how often Christmas time comes around now!

Hope all is well.
