I have wonderful memories of my time at Creighton Elementary and Olney High. When I left Philly in 1970 with my new husband, I lived in the midwest, south, New York, and finally Massachusetts. Boston has been my home since 1988. I have a law degree, but do not practice anymore. I have been the Dean of Admissions at a Boston Law School for 17 years.
I have two beautiful children, Melissa and Michael, and four adorable grandchildren, Emma, Meredith, Colin, and Madigan. They are truly the loves of my life.
When I retired in 2012, I moved to Bedford NH to be closer to my grandchildren. I also started a knitting business which keeps me busy and creative.
I still visit Philly, but had not been in touch with my school friends until Linda Garber and Louise Costuma found me on Facebook. Now I have reconnected with a number of my buddies.
I loved my time at Creighton. The teachers were terrific. I was one of those kids who lived "across the boulevard" so I got to eat lunch in the cafeteria (in the basement). It was a great time to hang out with my friends, play in the school yard, and just have fun. I remember our annual "bazaar" in the playground with lots of food and fun.
I recall having a heck of a time trying to sew an apron in home economics. If it wasn't for Judy Katz's mother who was a whiz on the sewing machine, I would have flunked for sure!
Olney was another story. It was a big school with many "clicks". I finally found my "cohort" and enjoyed many good times. I remember Mrs Rug who taught English. She was a tough old bird!
