Can't wait to see you all! After graduation, I worked for the Governor of Texas, then back to Arizona and was a private investigator for a couple of years. . . .ugh! Then became serious and joined Pitney Bowes as the first woman in sales with 30 men. Fun! After many years with them, I became a stock broker with Smith Barney and didn't care for that AT ALL.

Now, I got into chamber of commerce work when my old boyfriend, Dick Melick, hired me as Director of Economic Development in Glendale, AZ as I had been investing in real estate for a grillion years. That led me into a 15 year job as Pres/CEO for a chamber of commerce in Surprise, AZ over 5 communities.

A job became available in Northern AZ (Cottonwood) to run their chamber and I jumped on it to get out of the heat. Finally reached retirement age and raised my hand to get on that list. Wonderful community, scenery, people and weather. Only 1 1/2 hours to Phx and 15 minutes to Sedona.

I have the most wonderful friends on the face of the earth and chose not to get married to those nice men who asked. Whew!

Still very close to Kathi "Graham" VanBoven and Kathy "Raymond" Keller. In fact, I'm on my way to spend Thanksgiving with Kathy and Dick Keller at their cabin outside of Flagstaff, AZ, as always. Then my annual trip to Del Mar, CA to be with them for Christmas and usually have lunch with JoAnn "Bauer" Stricklin.

No complaints - Life is good, good, good!!!

Janny, I can speak for all when I say you are the "perfect" angel and you deserve all that is good and a wonderful and healthy life. I've been keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. This is my prayer for you today, as you are all of these things and think only the best.
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.

My 60th birthday celebration hosted by Kathi VanBoven at their home in Napa. Joined by Kathy Keller and one of my best friends from Dallas. A birthday I will NEVER forget! They went ALL out.
