|Hello to all my friends from high school. Thanks for this
web page so we can keep
My, the years have raced past! It seems like yesterday when
we were roaming the
halls of Ritenour. Good old Ritenour-and the orange and black.
What has happened to me? Well, I married Dick Hunt (RHS, 1955)
I was a student at St. Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing and Dick
was a student
at Wash U at that time. I worked at St. Luke’s after graduation
while Dick finished
graduate school. Then we moved to Chicago (in 1965), to New Jersey
and settled here in West Lafayette Indiana in 1969. I went
back to school, earned
some degrees and taught at Purdue School of Nursing for a total
of 21 years.
I retired from the Purdue faculty in 2000.
Dick and I have 2 children: John (41 years old, who is a biomedical
lives in Minneapolis with his wife and 2 children) and Julie (36
years old, who is a
physical therapist and lives in Ballwin, MO with her husband and
Our parents are deceased. My brother, Jay, is a major league
baseball scout for
the Angels. He, and his wife, Gay Bergfeld, live near Kansas City.
I have been involved in many nursing organizations and activities
over the years.
But, since retiring I have moved away from nursing and become involved
other activities. I enjoy gardening. I am a Master Gardener
and have been working
part-time at a landscape design firm for about a year. That
design firm recently added
a l6,000 square foot Garden Center. So, at age 63 I am going
into Garden Center sales.
I can even work the cash register. It is pretty easy.
I have taken several photography courses in the past, including 3
courses on the use of
Photoshop digital imaging software. I enjoy playing around
with my digital photos and
Photoshop. My other activities include volunteering as a “Special
Friend” to a first
grader at a local elementary school. I also write the bi-monthly
20 page newsletter
for the local Indiana Veterans’ Home. So, I keep pleasantly
I plan to use this web page to keep in touch with my old and treasured
Thanks for the memories…….
