What makes you laugh?

Well, Ron makes me laugh a lot, you can understand that I am sure. I think laughter is good for the soul and I guess I laugh at myself too. My children and grandchilden also make me laugh. I enjoy good jokes and funny movies. I like to have fun and enjoy a lot of things. I try not to take things too seriously. I love to laugh.

Still have family around?

My mom lives close by in Fleming Island. She was married to John Timmerman's dad for 24 years. That makes John my step brother and Megan and Adrienne my step sisters.

What did you do right after high school?

Ron and I married within a year of graduation. I worked for Prudential and then for Blue Cross/Blue Shield during college. I was a Domestic Engineer for several years while the kids were young and then went to cosmetology school. I worked as a hairdresser for about 18 years and then took about three years off. Now I am a Property Manager with Ashco Developers.

We see John Rosa and Jim Sumara a couple of times a year because we all have cabins in Maggie Valley North Carolina.
