Love Life

I married Gary Rainwater (Class of 71) in 1971. We divorced in 1987. Enough said about that. I remarried in 1990 to a wonderful man, Carl Rusher. I know, I know, everyone says that but I think the second time around you are looking for different qualities than you did the first time, at least I was, and we feel we were very fortunate to find each other. I have two sons, Carl has a son and a daughter. Their ages range from 25 to 29. We are very proud of them. We have six grandchildren, three girls and three boys. I think grandkids are the best thing going.


I started working with the State of California in 1990 with the Department of Education. I started as an office assistant and when I left State service I had just been promoted to executive assistant. I took a one-year leave of absence in June of 96 to work as my husband's secretary on a construction site in Iowa. With building completed we returned to California and to State service in June 1997. I left State service in March of 2000 and moved with my husband to Missouri. For now I am on vacation.


Carl and I love to fish. Bass fishing is our favorite. Although we have done our share of salmon, shark, and bat ray fishing. We have a bass boat and we participate in a lot of partner bass tournaments. We have fished all over the state of California and we have even fished the Mississippi River. That was great. I caught my first Walleye there. We shoot archery, and we also hunt. I still haven't gotten my first deer yet, but I will. I have gotten a couple of turkeys. (Really) I think turkey hunting is my favorite. I love sitting under a tree calling them and having them answer you. I tried pheasant hunting, but if its not standing still forget it. We have done archery tournament shooting and archery hunting and we also bow fish. (That's where the sharks and bat rays come in.) We've gone to Colorado to elk hunt, and we have also deer hunted in Southern Missouri.


We have a piece of property in Cape Fair, Missouri, which we have started a house on. (Southern Missouri, about 26 miles from Branson, MO) We have lived in Seattle, WA, Dubuque, Iowa, Cedar Rapids, Iowa and in Cape Fair, Missouri. All beautiful places.
