Class of 1961 Alumni Page


Tom and I married in 1963 and moved to Rhode Island for a year as he was in the Navy. We have two sons, Thomas born in Newport, Rhode Island and Michael born in Agana, Guam. After spending 16 years of living in different parts of the world (Guam, Japan, Cyprus and Spain) we retired from the Navy in 1979 and settled in Tampa, Florida, where Tom started a second career as a mortgage broker and retired from that a few years ago. I worked for a Real Estate Investment Trust as the branch manager of the Tampa office, but was happy to retire in January 2007.

Our son Thomas and his wife Elena have two married daughters, Dina and Ester. Ester has two little boys, Anthony and Justin. So, my son is a grandfather which naturally makes Tom and I great-grandparents. Thomas and Elena live in Orlando where she works in real estate and he manages a Hilton time share call center.

Michael and his wife Dana and son Nolan currently are living in Bitburg, Germany where they work for the Department of Defense teaching high school on an American Air Force Base.   They return to their home in Spring Hill, Florida for their 8 week summer vacations.

Tom and I enjoy traveling and over the past 10 years we have visited China, Singapore, Thailand, Africa, Netherlands, Belgium and most recently several trips to Germany. We have also taken trips to several states in the US and are amazed at what a beautiful country we live in.
