Didn't return to school until moving to Monterey in 1976. Took a few
business/accting classes. Not even close to getting a degree. When I
returned to Sacramento in 1984 I began taking on-site courses offered
through the State to satisfy promotional exams. Currently attending
school again and believe me it's harder than I thought to get back
I am regreting every minute of it. Not really learning anything
useful and it won't help me in my job. Should take photography or
something like that.
Married Clint Walker (RLHS Grad 71) in 1972. We were married eleven
years and divorced in 1983. Stayed friends (even though there were
good and bad times) until he passed away. He is missed much by his
daughter and grandson. We had a beautiful daughter, Mira Lynn, who is
twenty-four. Looks a lot like her father. She has given me two
beautiful grandchildren. Richard, 8 yrs., and Aryana, 18 mths. She
will also give another beautiful daughter in June, 2001. Married again
in 1984 but he was much younger than me so it only lasted about 6
months. Married again in 1989 and this time it lasted three years.
Met my current and fourth husband and married in 1995. No other
children of my own but I have three step-children. Two boys ages 18
and 20, Kasey and Nick. and a girl, Kesia, age 12. Nick is now married
and his wife is expecting their first child around June of 2001. They
all currently live in Nebraska.
Started with the State right out of high school at Dept of Parks & Rec
on a limited term basis. Worked as a waitress when that ended.
Received a position with DMV until I went to Germany. Worked in the
NCO club accounting office. Returned from Germany in 1975 and was
reinstated with DMV. Went to Office of Procurement until I moved to
Monterey in 1976. While there I bartended and cocktailed until
receiving a position at a residential heroin detox/methadone facility.
Left there when I was offered a position with the City of Monterey.
Worked for them until moving back to Sacramento in 1984. Worked as a
bookeeper for an electrical contractor until being hired by the City in
the Mayors office. Worked there until receiving a position with EDD in
1985. Quit the State in 1989 and worked part-time as a cashier at the
commissary at Mather Air Force Base. Starting work for a local
trucking company from 1990 to 1992. Received a job with Dept of Food
and Ag until 1994 when I transfered to the Dept of Social Services.
Have now been with them for seven years. Got my last promotion and
working on my Associate Admin Analyst. Hopefully within the year.
Am an avid camper and fisherman. Played baseball until the eyes and
knees went. Still love the game, just can't play competitive anymore.
Have a life-time membership with Good Sam and RPI parks. This is
probably good since we live full-time in our fifth-wheel. Makes it
great when we take off because we never forget anything. Currently
looking to upgrade our RV. We have since upgraded our boat but the RV
is still in the process. I am a Kings fan and Nebraska Husker fan.
Never miss a NASCAR race and hope to see as many as I can in person.
Like NHRA and have been to a few.
My daughter and grandchildren are the loves of my life. Have a great
marriage. Guess fourth time around is lucky. Don't look too
disgusting and old (course you'll never see me first thing in the
morning or on really lazy weekends) I'm in good health. So what else
Moved out of Rio Linda when I married Clint. Lived in the north and
south area several times. Lived in Pebble Beach, Seaside, Monterey and
Pacific Grove the seven years I was in that area. Lived in Germany for
approximately three years and also lived on Mather Air Force Base.
(It's sad to see the housing go, I enjoyed it there). As you can tell
I am an expert at packing and moving. Maybe that's why I now live in
