September 08, 1943 firstname.lastname@example.org Santa Clara, CA electronics; electronic distribution; own bookkeeping business Married 3 Mr. Kirchhoff Hawaii, Switzerland, Germany & Italy The Parkmoor, basketball games
After graduation, my family moved to San Jose, California, to follow the economic boom. Across the street from our home lived an attractive girl from Berkeley, MO. You guessed it! We were married in 1963 and will celebrate our 48th anniversary in October. We claimed that it must have been a "God Thing" as we didn't know each other before moving to CA. We have 3 children - Debbie, Chris and Rick who have blessed us with 4 beautiful granddaughters - Lindsay, Mary, Ashley and Alyssa.
All of our children live locally and we attend Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Milpitas. I've stayed actively involved with ushering, Life Groups, and serving on the Board of Directors, where I'm currently treasurer.
My first job in California was working for a paper company. In 1964, I joined the electronic industry where I worked for 18 years. In 1982, I became a entrepreneur when I opened my own bookkeeping and payroll companies as well as a picture framing company in Sacramento. Those businesses kept me busy until 1997 when we decided to open our own preschool in Menlo Park, CA. My wife, Joanne, had over 20 years of experience in our local school district, so she slipped right into the Directorship of the School. Currently, I'm retired from all the businesses except the school.
We enjoy traveling - having made it to most of the 50 states, Canada and several countries in Europe. We hope to be able to do more.
Sorry we can't make it to the reunion, but will be thinking of you all. Reading all the bios brought back many memories of our high school years, but it also reminds me how God has Blessed each of us. To Him be the Glory!!

September 07, 1943 email@example.com Bastrop TX US Child of God; writer/editor/retired teacher Married 5 John Hoyer; Wm. Dieckhoff Slovak Republic Playing Margot in "The Diary of Anne Frank"After high school, I attended and graduated from Concordia Teachers College, River Forest, Illinois (now Concordia University, Chicago). After my junior year, I spent an internship year teaching in Houston, Texas. It was there I met my husband, Lou, a graduate of Concordia, Austin, and later of Concordia, Seward. We were married June 11, 1966.
Our first calls were to Islip, New York, 50 miles out on Long Island. I taught kindergarten and music one year, and first grade the next. By May of 1968, we had a new baby, David, and in June headed to Delray Beach, Florida, where Lou served as principal of Trinity Lutheran School, and where we were blessed with two more children: Bethany, born in 1970, and Theodore (Ted) in 1972.
After almost six years in Florida, we lived in Houston for two years, where Melissa was born in 1974, and then in Beaumont, Texas, for another four. There we added one more daughter, Dinah (our final child), to our family in 1976.
We lived two years at Camp Lone Star in La Grange, Texas, and I helped to start a preschool at our home church and taught and held the position of director.
In 1982, Lou accepted a position with the LCMS Missouri District, so we moved to St. Louis (south county). I taught preschool at Christ Memorial until January, 1984, when I began working for the Board of Parish Services of the LCMS, first as editor of Teachers Interaction (a magazine for Sunday school teachers); and eventually editing other–mostly early childhood–material. In 1996, I received my MA in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University (Chicago).
In 1992, the editors became part of Concordia Publishing House, and I worked there until one year after a move back to Houston in 1998. Then I served as the director of an early childhood center at St. Timothy for two years, followed by four years of teaching first grade at St. Mark in Houston, where my career had begun so many years before.
Lou and I are both retired now and living in Bastrop, the “most historic small town in Texas,” about 30 miles from Austin.
I occasionally do early childhood center evaluations, consultations, and presentations, and presently teach the women’s Bible class at our church. I’ve authored a total of six Arch Books for CPH, one of which (The Visit of the Wise Men) was made into a hardback picture book; and coauthored/edited a women’s Bible studies called “Under His Wings.” I’ve done a lot of writing and editing for the Children’s Ministry Department of Synod as well as other writing and editing over the years. Lou and I just finished training through Lutheran Hour Ministries to give MissionU presentations: helping people become better witnesses of our Lord Jesus Christ.
God has blessed our children (all LHSS grads) with wonderful spouses and with children of their own:
David, married to Coreen Meyer (LHSS): Seth, almost 11; Elizabeth, 7½; Luke, 3½. David composes contemporary Christian music and is director of worship at Redeemer Lutheran in Austin, Texas.
Bethany, married to Jon Schmidt (LHSS): Savannah, 9½. Bethany is a marathon runner (recently ran the Boston), and a coach for Team in Training. Savannah attends Christ Community in St. Louis. They are members of Faith, Oakville.
Ted, married to Connie Eckert (LHSN): Ellie, 8; Evan 5. Ted composes classical music and is choir director for Good Shepherd in St. Louis, but they are members of Immanuel, Olivette, where Ellie and Evan attend school. If you’ve attended the Renaissance Festival in Wentzville, you’ll have seen Ted as king of the realm. By the way, Connie’s mom’s cousins include Ruth Kieffer (Brian Dietrich) and Tom Brockmann (Marilyn Giesselmann).
Melissa, married to John Fetzer: Stryker, 2½; Stella, 6 months. Melissa is an LCMS teacher, writer, and currently a stay-at-home mom. They live in Houston.
Dinah, married to Christian Dobrowski (LHSN Houston): Amehra, 5½; Vesper, 2; Mazzy, 3 months. Dinah is a stay-at-home mom, artist, home-schooling parent. They live in Austin.

I met my husband, Al Gunderman, at Seward. We were married the summer after graduation. We served in parishes in Ft. Lauderdale & Boca Raton Florida (where our 2 children were born), Conover NC, Friendswood TX and Topeka KS. I've lived in Topeka since 1981
My various careers have always had an element of teaching, from teaching in Lutheran elementary schools to training baristas at a coffehouse to co-founding an educational theater company to creating summer day camps at an historic site in Topeka. I took early retirement from Old Prairie Town at Ward-Meade Historic Site in Topeka in 2006. My longest career was 14 years teaching Adult Basic Education & GED preparation for Topeka Public Schools.
My husband of 37 years, Al Gunderman, died of a heart attack early Christmas morning, 2003. On March 12, 2007, I married Gary Sims, an old friend who was also widowed.
We love to travel -- especially car trips both long and short. Many of our trips are to visit our children.
My daughter, Jen, is in Nashville where she is a professional musician and teaches in the school of music at Vanderbilt University. Her husband is also a professional musician.
My son, Dan, is in New York City and is a writer. His wife is a Sottish lass who is a music therapist.
Gary's son, Blake, is in Houston, where he and his wife are both in administration in the health care field. They have a daughter, Alison (4) and twins, Wesley & Sophia (2).
In retirement, Gary and I love participating in the many events available in Topeka, Lawrence, Kansas City and Manhattan (Gary is a K-State graduate). This semester we are auditing a class, "Race & Ethnic Group Relations", at Washburn University in Topeka.
We especially like fine arts, music, theater and sports. We also like taking day trips to small towns in Kansas.

October 03, 1943 email@example.com Yuma AZ teacher, organist, choir director Divorced 3 Richard Wallace New York; My dad was a teacher also and went to a conference every two years or so. So my Dad went to the conference and them my mom and my sister and I went to sight see. We saw Yankee Stadium, Empire State Building, Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty.. A student had a pass and climbed out the window...during a class of an older science teacher. I can remember him with a chair over his head, going to go out the door, made a lot of noise. The teacher said "I think I hear a mole" or something.I went to Concordia in Seward and Brian Dietrich and I were good friends and Larry Brown and Bill Leistritz were there....at Mizzou. I played tennis.
I remember going into the school store, a little room on the first floor with supplies. Guys had to buy a protector for their crotches in sports and were all embarrassed because they had to buy them from GIRLS.
I can remember practicing tennis in the park with our team and Bill Leistritz came along. He was such a good athlete that he grabbed a tennis racket and was better than anyone on the tennis team.
I remember working at Chuck-a-Burger for a few years in the evenings.
I received a call to a school in St. Louis where Brian Dietrich was raised, where his parents went to church. He then became a teacher there too.
I was there for 8 years and then accepted a call for another 8 years to another school in MO.
Then to Los Angeles for three years. Then 30 years in Yuma, AZ. My wife's cousin was a pastor from Yuma, which was a coincidence.
I played the organ for my sister's wedding in 1965 and I ended up marrying her best friend. We were married for 20 years and had three children.
