Yes! Attending Reunion
Education after Seaholm:

Undergrad degree in English.

Where Have You Lived?

I started out in Birmingham, of course.
Married Otts Otto, moved to Buffalo, NY, for 1 year with GM division of Oldsmobile. Got transferred to Vestal, NY, for 3 years with GM, then transferred to Rochester, NY, with GM, for 5 years. Finally, moved to Albany, NY, where we opened up our own Oldsmobile/Pontiac dealership and 2 Saturn stores. After GM got through getting rid of many products, we are now down to only Cadillac.
Along the way we had three little girls, now all grown up and are mothers themselves.

I have lived in the Albany NY areai since 1973.
Otts and I are no longer married.

Along the way, I earned my undergrad in English. I felt like the oldest person in the classroom until I discovered the professors appreciated me because I showed up, asked questions and, handed my work in on time. Once I got started and into the college mode, I loved it.
For those who have not earned their undergrad, give it try! You will be amazed at how much you will find out about yourself.


I attended the 50th year class reunion this August, 2012. I must say that everything, and I mean everything went very well. It was Dream Cruise Weekend, and yes, we survived that. Not only that, the weather was perfect for us, Friday night at Peabody's worked out very well. And then, Saturday night at the Marriott was even better.

Thanks to all of you who attended.

And more importantly, thank you to the fabulous, awesome and, efficient committee that put this all together!! Love you all. Fran

I remember Ladd well.  He was always polite, funny and great to be around.  So sad to lose a nice guy like that.  I am pleased to view so many memorable comments about Ladd.  Positive comments are always welcome.  God Bless you Ladd.  Hope to see you in Heaven!!
