Sailing around the world aboard the Seven Seas was a highlight on my freshman year in college. It was a floating campus sponsored by Chapman College. Cathy Alleman was also on the trip. It was four months of eye-opening and life-changing experiences. From there I transferred to USC where I earned my B.S. in Dental Hygiene. I practiced for 30 years and retired in 2000.
In 1975 I married Tom Rowe. His career in the lumber business took us to Atlanta, GA, Saginaw, MI, Portland, OR and back to Orange County. We lived in Laguna Hills for 30 years and in 2008 werelocated to Olympia, WA. We moved there to be near our three grandkids who are now 11, 12 and 13! What fun!
We danced on an exhibition clogging team for 11 years. We were opening acts for Sammy Davis Jr., Bill Monroe and Freddy Fender. Entertaining was exciting! We are now avid square dancers and have enjoyed that leisure pursuit for 22 years.
Traveling to Alaska in our RV was the trip of a lifetime. We have also traveled all the way across Canada arriving in Nova Scotia. On that trip we even stopped in Boston where our own Barbara Thornton gave us a deluxe tour of her city. Our RV travels have taken us to over 40 states and we aren’t done yet!
