I was born and raised in Oskaloosa and although currently living in New Sharon, I have a heart for Osky. 52 years ago, I married my high school sweetheart, Charlie. We have two amazing daughters who have blessed us with 2 grandsons & 3 granddaughters. We are proud of all our grandkids. Some of them have given our family the start of our 4th generation with 3 great-granddaughters. They have become our heartbeat and one of the blessings God has given us. My husband and I are both motorcycle enthusiasts and love riding with friends or as a couple. I have a passion for backyard gardening and continue to evolve it into an oasis to come home to. I call it my "Ruach Garden" which is Hebrew for "Breath of God." I am a graduate of Indian Hills College, and I served 2 years as a Board member for the Stilwell Public Library in New Sharon.
