Meeting the new German
Ambassador to the USA
After graduation I followed the usual pattern .....continued education
(Miss Hickey's Secretarial School)...work (McDonnell Aircraft),
marriage in 1958 to Bob Hammel (Ferguson graduate and GM
employee). Two children, a son and daughter and two more by
marriage. We enjoyed them as children, and also now as
productive adults with a good sense of humor. They have blessed
with 5 grandchildren ...4 boys, 1 girl. The joys of my heart!
For the past 27 years we have lived in rural New Melle, Mo. (about
40 miles West of STL. I am active in church and community
projects. For 10 years I have been president of the New Melle-
melle, Germany club. We have a partnership with Melle and
arranged many tours to Europe. We travel again this September
Austria, Switzerland, and Germany.
I attend classes at the local community college when I have time.
We enjoy antiquing and gardening. I regularly see old classmates
(better rephrase that to former classmates!!) Have worked
the class reunions---if you haven't attended one - you have missed
out on a heartwarming experience !!. My husband thinks we
great class and enjoys my reunion more then his own!! We have
much fun I can hardly wait until the next one! See you there...
