personal page is a brief overview of my family history.
I am a mixture of West Coast & East Coast
mother and father met during WWII at the Jacksonville Beach pier.
When my father was sent to the Pacific, my mother and her two daughters
moved to San Francisco, California where I was born. My mother and father divorced
when I was a baby, and my mother returned with my other sister to
Jacksonville. At that time, my oldest sister married and remained
in California where she still lives today.
recent years have I traveled back to California. For my 50th
birthday, I requested a trip to California to meet my father's family for the
first time! My
dream is to one day retire there. Since I have family all over
this state, I have experienced many different places to choose
from. What makes California so interesting is the enormous variety
I spent all my childhood and
adult life in Jacksonville enjoying the river, beach and hot climate.
Over the years, I have watched Jacksonville struggle to grow into a big
city. I can remember when there was no community college--only
Jacksonville University and Jones College, which are both private
schools. I was truly excited when the NFL
picked this city for a football expansion team.
I met my husband about
12 years ago in one of the local churches. He is from South
Carolina and an avid Clemson University fan. In fact, we are the
Booster Club representatives for the N.E. Florida area.
