Occupation: Clinical Research Consultant (semi-retired)
Children: Shannon Cantrell, born 1968

Graduated with RN, BSN. Got married, had 2 children, got divorced after 10 years of marriage. Left the Nazarene Church after marrying a possessed Nazarene preachers son and becoming part of the church hierarchy and seeing so much hypocrisy in organized religion. Had to find a belief system where I had power over the devil and I did. I am now a spirit filled non-denominational believer. I never really had power in the legalistic church I grew up in. I am deeper in my faith than I ever have been. I met my husband when I moved up to Okla. to attend a Nazarene college and work on a PhD in psychology. He became my case study for 10 years. It was never dull. I never remarried. Changed my career to clinical/pharmaceutical research 28 years ago. It has been interesting and required extensive amounts of traveling, so I have been a lot of places and seen a lot of things. I have lived in Okla, Kansas, Idaho, CA, CO, Louisiana, and Arizona.

High points of your life since high school:

Spending time with my adult children and grandchildren. Taking my daughter, Shannon, to Rome to celebrate her graduation from Louisiana Tech and then watching her obtain her doctorate, and now my son is in the dissertation stage of his doctorate. Watching my son survive crashing a crop duster and surviving only by the grace of God. He was left with residual problems and told he would never walk again or be able to have children. Well, he walks, is married and has 2 beautiful children. Being able to hear my daughter sing and play guitar and piano. See attached video. Http://

How old do you feel:

depends on the day

What about you would surprise us:

My grandfather was one of the engineers who helped build Denison Dam at Lake Texoma. I think it is the largest earthen dam in the world or is it US, can't remember.

Favorite city you've lived in:


Favorite city you've visited:

San Francisco

What do you do now that you're retirement age?

Spend more time with family. I am reading the Bible from cover to cover this year. I love interior decorating, natural medicine and read and study anything that has to do with healthy nutrition, organic vitamins/supplements and herbs. More into politics than I use to be and watch a lot of news shows and magazines. I love Christian TV and end time prophecy. I believe that most prophecy has been fulfilled and the 2nd coming is imminent. I'm spending time in prayer and devotions making sure that I am ready to go to Heaven when the time comes. Participate more in local community and government issues.

What's still on your bucket list?

Would like to build/own a completely green-eco friendly home someday. Maybe take a trip to Quenca, Ecuador and look into doing some missionary work. Right now, I want to spend as much time as possible with by granddaughter and grandson before they are grown.

What have you checked off your bucket list?

Spending time with grandchildren, but not enough.

Any vices? Explain. Briefly.

Don't exercise enough.

When was the last time you belly laughed? Why?

Everyday! My 2 grown children are extremely witty and funny as well as my 2 grandchildren. I just belly laughed when I read Mary Middleton's profile, so glad she is forgiven.

Whatcha gonna be doing in 10 years?

Enjoying life... Have thoughts of moving to Quenca, Ecuador and doing a little missionary work.

Committee Member?
