June 12, 1943 charlene@yhti.net Washington MO US retired teacher Married 2 Mr. Kirchoff Italy, Hawaii parties - Parkmoor - christmas concert

After graduating from high school, I attended St. John's College in Winfield, Kansas.  After two years, I transferred to Concordia teachers college in Seward, Nebraska.  It was during these years I met my husband Wayne.  I graduated and was married in the summer of 1965. 

I started teaching at Gethsemane Lutheran School in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, where Wayne was serving as principal.  After two years we were blessed with the birth of our daughter, Dawn, and two years later with a son, Matthew.  During this time I also started teaching private piano lessons.

In 1970 we moved to a consolidated school, Unity Lutheran, on the south side of Ft. Wayne.  I did some part time teaching and continued with my piano students.

After 15 years in Ft. Wayne, we moved to Washington, Missouri in 1977.  I continued teaching off and on at Immanuel Lutheran School.  It was there I started playing the organ on a regular basis,teaching piano and singing for weddings and funerals.  I also began teaching women's bible classes.

After helping my son recover from a horrific car accident in 1994, I began substitute teaching for the Washington School District for 4 years.  A few years later I found myself being care-giver for my parents, as well as an invalid aunt.

After retiring I've enjoyed traveling, bicycle riding, gardening and singing in community concerts.  I continue assisting 3 local perishes with organ music for Sunday services.  A few piano students are always on the list; but mostly I enjoy my 5 wonderful grandchildren.  Life has been full with trials and many, many blessings!

September 26, 1943 xbwp40@gmail.com xbwp40@aol.com Sacramento CA US USPS (45 years -- retired) Single 15 Maestro Ralph Lee San Diego Zoo - to see my relatives ?????????????? uuuuuuuhhhhh Marching and playing with the band in the VP Parade. When the parade ahead of us sped through the Black or Negro or Coloured neighborhood, Mr. Lee marched us at a normal pace so as not to discriminate against anyone, slowing down the parade behind us. Good for him! Wonderful! We were sitting ducks for the pea shooters. More than a few peas landed in the bell of the tuba. Ping! Ping! Ping!

Then there was the morning (May 5, 1961) Alan Shepard was launched into the unknown. At that time the band rehearsed (practiced?) in the faculty lounge downstairs, because upstairs we were annoying (can't image why) the other classes. At the end of the period when it was time for "chapel", he let us stand around the radio listening to the broadcast of this spectacular, momentous, astounding, amazable, nail-biting, gripping, historic event. This left a glaring empty section in the balcony at "Chapel".....
Wonder what El Patron had to say to him about that?....Lese Majeste'..........Playing piano at a smooching party at somebody's house(can't remember whose) after a basketball game.......Coney Islands at the Parkmoor and being with the gang there.......Carrying Mr. Feldhoff and part of the typing team in my 1954 Ford Victoria to the competition at MU in Columbia and seeing Bing Devine and the football squard practicing at the stadium.......Carrying a carload of riders to and from school every day and getting stuck in the snow........ The varsity-faculty (or was it the alumi-faculty) game at the Sem where while directing the band on stage, Ralph Lee took off his clothes to reveal his red flannel longjohns underneath which he was wearing his basketball uniform. He then proceeded to sink a backwards over the head free throw

15 ?  Just kidding                                           
 I attended St. John's, Winfield (the party school) for one semester and played trombone in a brass ensenble that accompanied the choir on a winter tour of Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.  We played in church sancturaries and stayed overnight with members of the congregations.  Haven't played since.  I still have my Martin horn.  The slide is in need of repair.  Keep telling myself I will play it again, but never do.                                    
   I came to California in 1962 and started work at the Sacto. Main Post Office (now USPS) in 1964.  Retired in 2009 after 45 years.  I'm taking it easy and enjoying every day.  I have a very very large collection of recordings (all formats including 78's) that includes "Classical", Jazz, Big Band, Popular, Theater Pipe Organ, Church Pipe Organ, Vocals, "Easy Listening", 1950's Rock & Roll, Doo Wop, but NO Beatles and NO post Beatles Rock thank you. I'm sure that it would be a treat to see and hear Bill's Seabourg juke box and "relive the good  (in some ways) old days".   I cycled frequently on the 26 mile long American River Parkway bike trail until I tripped at work in 2001 and wound up with a broken femur.  Fortunately a very talented orthopedic surgeon put it back together with pins.  This saved my natural hip joint as the break was quite close to it.            Need to get back on that bike.     Love you all madly.                                          Happy Reunion !

February 02, 1943 chopchop@embarqmail.com Las Vegas NV US Insurance salesman; taxi driver Married 4 Mr. Lee Phillipines Standing in front of the school, playing Christmas Carols and having kids throw snowballs and coins in my sousaphone. I loved marching in the Veiled Prophet parade each year.

After graduating I went to work for the Federal Reserve Bank in St. Louis where I met my future wife. l  We were soon married and had three wonderful children:   2 girls and a boy.  I went to work as an accountant at MacDonald’s Construction Company where I was the pay master on building the Gateway Arch in 1963.

I took 2 years of night courses majoring in accounting at St. Louis University and then I left MacDonalds to work as an accountant for a construction company in Saigon, Vietnam, for one year, as a civilian....April 66 -April 67.    I left my family here and went to make some money.  When I returned home, I met my third child for the first time.   She was 10 mos old.  We then moved to Toronto, CA, for 6 months to avoid paying taxes on what I made in Vietnam.

I came back to St. Louis and started selling life insurance for Prudential Insurance Co.  After 2 1/2 years I switched to difference companies as an insurance broker and continued to sell insurance for 22 years.  I qualified for the “Million dollar round table club” for 18 years.  My wife and I and sometimes our children won trips to Singapore, Spain, Tokyo, Montreal (twice), 4 Carribean cruises, 2 trips to Switzerland, Orlando, Hawaii, Mexico City, and San Diego (3 times).  After being married for 22 yrs, I got divorced and moved to LasVegas, NV, where I began driving a taxicab for 15 years.

During this time, I began writing to 8 filipino ladies in the Phillipines and in June 2002, I went there to meet them.   After 4 days, I asked Elizabeth, who was the first one I me, to marry me.  I never got to meet the other seven.  She was THE ONE!  I applied for a “fiance” visa for her and 4 months later, on Thanksgiving Day, she and her 8 year old daughter arrived in America, and we were married a month later and we’ll soon be celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary.

After two years, I was able to adopt her wonderful daughter, who is now a junior in high school.  I retired when I was 61.   My three other children love my new wife and they sometimes call her mom even though they are  5-8 years older than she is.  We are very happy and I feel very lucky.   One other thing:  We are sending 13 kids to school...in the Phillippines...They are doing very well and it is a joy to watch them.

I’m sorry I am unable to attend the reunion in October, but I have many great memories from high school.

February 16, 1943 jimjoywool@charter.net Hazelwood MO US Retired N/A Married 3 Mr Kirchhoff Lived in Australia for 2 years

Hi, Everyone,

I am looking forward to our Reunion and would like to thank all who are responsible for making this possible.

After graduation, I worked at McDonnell Aircraft (now Boeing).  That is where I met my  husband Jim.  We got married in 1964.  I remained at McDonnell for about 5 years and then I became mostly a stay-at-home mom.  We have 3 children, Lisa, Mike and Laura.  Along the way I had part time jobs at Daycare Centers, some computer work and nineteen years at Rhodes Furniture warehouse store.  We have been blessed with six, (going on 8) grandchildren.  Two are arriving this summer.

My favorite teacher was Mr. Kirchhoff.  Because of him I stayed in choir at my church for over thirty years.  I have fond memories singing in the choir at Lutheran High.

Since we are now retired, Jim and I love to travel.  My hobbies are working in my yard and of course taking care of my grand children.  We have truly been blessed.

Joyce
