Comments:

After graduating from Normandy, I earned a BSN and MSN at the University of Iowa where I met the love of my life, husband Doug. He was in medical school and we married in 1969. I earned my PhD from Ohio State University and we have been residents in Columbus since 1975 where Doug recently retired after 40 years as a pediatric cardiologist at Nationwide Children's Hospital. (Its hard to be a Hawkeye in Buckeye Country). I have had multiple roles in nursing: clinical medical surge-CCU, private practice as advanced practice nurse, Chief of Nursing Services, and Director of Operations as well as stints in private consulting for hospitals, Executive Director of the Institute of Health and Human Services at Ohio University, principal in ATeske & Associates, and now in my "retirement" I was teaching graduate nursing students at Otterbein University for six years (flunked my first retirement) I retired on May 23, 2014--for real! Doug in January, 2015.
Doug and I have been blessed with a great family and we get together as often as possible being in Missouri, Ohio, and Florida.
After over 30 years of mountain hiking, Doug and I sustained knee injuries (me) and his left shoulder (Doug) we have decided to become tourists and actually visit cities in countries that we have hiked. Our bucket list keeps growing---hopefully we will live a long life and get to check many of them off.

I am a five year breast cancer survivor and rowed with the Breast Cancer Survivor Rowing Team in Columbus, OH where we live. I love it! At age 67, I rowed in two regattas--Toledo 5,000 meter (700 strokes) and Dayton 2,500
meter and rowed since in regattas. I am the 4th rower in the family: son-in-law Hank rowed for Purdue University and later a team in St. Louis, our son Brian rowed for Drexel University, and our daughter Amy rowed intermural for Princeton University.
However, 33 years of mountain hiking and osteoarthritis (Thanks Mom) have taken a toll and in May, 2017 I had a total right knee implant. No more rowing but I will be back to moderate hiking...and without pain! Great medical technology. July 11, 2018 will have my left knee replaced.
Doug and I are both retired now and enjoying a busy life without the stress. We continue to travel often. I volunteer at one elementary school tutoring third grade students who are at risk of not passing the core curriculum tests focusing on reading comprehension and test taking. I am also Vice President of Trefoil 1 Girl Scout Alumni Association. Doug works 1 1/2 days for Habitat for Humanity completing his 28th house. Retirement and being grandparents are the best roles ever!

School Story:

My best friend since age 4--and continues to be is Susie Christian Arns. She was the bubbly blonde that boys looked at and melted. I was the more plain brunette. Susie had so many interested boys that she would call me up to ask what she should suggest that they do. Does seem somewhat backwards!

Some of my fondest memories are going to football games, taking up the flute just to be in the Marching Band (remember those trips to MU football games at the end of every season with Mr. Duncan?), swim team, and just having so many great classmates.

I am delighted that we have such an active alumni association providing gatherings and scholarships. Thank goodness for Linda and Rick Ramin!!! who keep us informed and organized.

Susan was a life long friend.  We became friends in kindergarden and she was in Troup 972 GS all 12 years. One time we lost our one pot meal that was buried over hot coals and covered with dirt and brush.  It only took five holes for us to find it!  Mrs. Adams went hammock camping (we macremed the hammocks from my Dad's design).  She woke us all up yellinig as she spied a mother possum and trail of babies walking through camp.  Our troop traveled to Washington, D.C. and the 1964 World's Fair in New York by train.   We had a great time.  Susan also played on the Bel-Nor Bombers softball team in elementary school.  We weren't very good but had a great time.  I have always admired Susan's positive spirit in loving life to the fullest, never letting herself get down, while coping with Multiple Sclerosis for forty years.  She stored many beautiful memories for herself, her family, and her friends.   Ann Engelhardt Teske

Hi Glennon
Happy Birthday!! Today is Rick Ramin's birthday. If you have been following the Class Memories there have been a number of comments about turning 70.
We had dinner with Rick and Linda Thursday. He is doing well and is in much better spirits. He has been comfortable with Doug in a slinking medical questions.

I noted to Linda that I was surprised that you had not posted any HS or life memories and she said that you and Eileen had been on extended travels. Hope you both had a great time!
May the coming year be filled with joy. Ann Teske ??

Happy Birthday Susie !! One of our youngest in the class which you can now flaunt to the rest of us. I know you are enjoying retirement and your three beautiful grandchildren.

Hi Glenn. Happy Birthday!!! May you have many more in good health and happiness.
If you and Eileen come through Ohio, please stop by. We are heading to St Louis last week in August through Labor Day entertaining 12 year old Peter until his school starts. Hope you are enjoying retirement. Ann Teske
