From the 40th reunion:
 
After graduation, I entered the Seminary to train to become a Catholic priest. I could never get amo, amas, amat straight under Mrs. Washer in Latin I, so when I had 6 credits a semester of Latin in college it was a little too much. After summer school and 30 college credits of Latin (of which I passed 15) they dropped the requirement. God was on my side, just a little slow on the follow up.
 
I had an in and out career in the Seminary but eventually finished and was ordained out of Mt. St. Mary's in Emmitsburg in 1975. I have loved every minute of what I do (except the administration stuff). Having been ordained for the Archdiocese of Washington, I have remained in the area for the last 31 years. I became a pastor in 1987 in Lexington Park, MD, then on to St Raphael's in Rockville/Potomac from 1992-2002, and now have been here at St. Mary of the Mills in Laurel for the last four years.
 
My life has been filled with spending time with my best friend and His best friends and has been a daily adventure. No day is ever the same and they are always filled with people. I have run into some of our classmates over the years, am looking forward to seeing people at the reunion and feel badly that some of the people I remember and looked forward to seeing can't make it. Bill Leeder who moved away during High School remains a close friend, and I had the honor to officiate at Ricky Barse's funeral several years ago.
 
After being a little slow with help in Latin, the Lord has had some trouble in another request, I asked for less weight and more hair. I think He might be a little dyslexic because the order got confused and I ended up with more weight and less hair. Oh Well, that's life, I'm sure He'll get it right eventually.
 
It is fun to read all the bios and am happy for so many of you who are entering into or have already gotten to retirement. I am the only one still working in my family and we don't retire until age 75, so I hope my social security payments will help you all in your doting years. Traveling has been a big part of my off time along with going to the beach, which I love. Having a school is also a great adventure and the kids keep me young and on my toes. It is amazing what kids can think of to ask, either because they are curious or they are trying to waste time. Ya gotta love um!

retired/PT Walmart Employee now Single Again 1 2016-08-02 10:53:53
Well, let's see if i can remember where and what I've been doing since we graduated from WJHS in 1966...from there I went to Montgomery Jr. College for two years and took general courses since I really didn't know WHAT I wanted to do with my life. Hence, I think I spent most of my time there playing Bridge, doing gymnastics, and being theater.  From there, I was a waitress at a couple of places, and racing a super prostock car in an 8-women NHRA East Coast car circuit. A few 'notables' that I raced with were Carol "Bunny" Burkett & Cha Cha Muldowney. Between doing that, as well as riding a motorcycle and being in a couple of beauty contests, it was a exciting season or two. From there, I got into doing office type work and moved from one to the other, never really finding where I 'fit'.  Moved to Kentucky for two years and worked at the University of KY Medical Center. I got diagnosed with a cancer invading my uterus wall and had to have a hysterectomy to save my life. Afterwards, I moved back to MD suburbs and became a Police Dispatcher for the Montgomery Cty Police Dept for 8 yrs.  I was married for about 4 yrs, but being his 3rd wife, that didn't work out too well.  However, I was Blessed with the option of adopting my daughter, Krystle, (a day old..private adoption) during that time.  Due to scheduling, I transferred over the MC Crisis Center in Rockville at that time.  I was the Office Svc Manager for the Center and was there for the next 20 yrs.  It was the best decision I ever made..to go to work for the County! The people I worked with were like my "second family" and I still miss them to this day. When I retired a bit early, I packed up my stuff (motorcycle included, yes... I was still 'riding', lol) and moved down to Ocean City MD.  Been living in Ocean City, MD for the past 6 yrs or so and love being by the ocean! My daughter and two grandsons moved down a year after I did.  Now, as of June this year, we got a house together.  They live upstairs in a renovated, level complete with kitchen etc.,  while I live on the first level complete with LR, kitchenette area, etc.  Works for us! She has the back entrance and I have the front. So far so good!  Currently,  I enjoy working PT at Walmart meeting people, getting away from the family now and then (LOL), talking with people (other than my dogs & cat, lol) and the extra money doesn't hurt now and then either. Smiles! I lost my older sister to Ovarian Cancer a year after I moved down here.  So, I try to live each day to the fullest.  You never know what's around the corner! Who knows...maybe I'll find love/partner to grow older with...even at this late stage of my life! It could happen! LOL  If not, that's ok too. Blessings to Everyone!

From the 40th reunion:
 
After graduation I tried college, but in 1968 I joined the Navy.
After graduation as a hospital corpsman in the Navy in Nov. 68 I married Sally Harp on 11/3/0/68. 1968-70 i spent my time working as a hospital corpsman at little creek amphibious base, Norfolk, Va. In September 1970 my first child, tim, was born and just 2 months later we were on the move. In Nov. 1970 I transferred to the naval hospital at oakland california for training and then I was stationed in Yokohama, Japan for 3 years where my second child, Kate, was born. We really enjoyed our time in Japan and it helped us develop a good family bond.
On my return to the states in 1973 I was stationed in San Diego, Ca. At the Naval hospital and the Naval training center, where I received my associates degree from San Diego Mesa College. In 1976 I was selected for the Navy's physician's assistant program and attended through the University of Nebraska, graduating in 1978 after completing my internship at the Naval hospital Portsmouth, Va.
My first duties as a P.A. were at the Naval Air Station, Lakehurst, NJ (where the Hindenburg crashed). In in 1981 I transferred to Marine Corps training center, Quantico, Va. (where I had the pleasure of taking care of ROTC college students during their summer training). In 1984 I transferred to the Naval hospital at Bethesda, Md. (finally got back home) and I retired from the Navy on July 1st, 1988 after 20 years of service to my country.
I immediately went to work for Baltimore Gas and Electric Company in their occupational medicine department, where i am today and hope to retire with 20 years service there on 6/1/2008. During my employment at BGE I have earned my masters degree in business.
Sally and I have been happily married for 38 years this November. Tim is married and lives with his wife and child in New Milford, Ct. (second child on the way).  Kate lives in Olathe, Ks. with her husband and child.
Sally and I enjoy being active in our church and various activities both at home and in the community. Sally just retired 6/30/06 from her position as an office manager for a plastic surgeon.

Clinical Laboratory Scientist (retired) Divorced 3 2016-09-12 15:29:45
After WJ,  I went Reed College in Portland, Oregon. I dropped out of college in my sophomore year to join a "war against poverty" community organizing effort. My involvement in anti-war and anti-racism politics eventually led to relocating in the Bay Area. I returned to college at Cal State Hayward where I got a degree in biology and a Clinical Laboratory Science license. 
I married Vic Coffield in 1976. We have 3 daughters, twins Tina and Rose born in 1977, and Tanya in 1981.
I worked for 40 years as a Clinical Laboratry Scientist in hospital laboratories. In keeping with my lifetime of activism, I served as a union steward on the job and was active in reform efforts in the Oakland Public Schools my girls attended. I also have taken oil painting classes for several years.
My career culminated in a fascinating position in a lab that processed Stem Cells for transplants.
I am recently retired. I am thrilled to be a grandma to my new grandson.

From the 40th reunion:

I looked through the list of fellow graduates and could only remember 4 of them, my four best friends. I didn't spend much time at high school as I had a boyfriend who went to Wilson High. I spent a lot of time cutting classes. He had long hair and I was probably the only girl in HS who had a long-haired boyfriend.

I did get caught up in the 60's flower child period, lived in Berkeley for awhile after attending University of Ky for a couple of years. Then I joined a community called "The Farm" in Summertown, Tenn. where I lived for 10 years, got married and had four children.

We moved back to northern California in 1981. My kids are grown and doing well. They all live in the same county as my husband and I do, Sonoma County, about 60 miles north of SF. I am a cardiac nurse and love my job. I also bead and knit and quilt. I walk my dog every morning and walk with my husband and dog every evening.

I watch Democracy Now on my computer 5 mornings a week and end up feeling rather helpless and angry with the world situation. I am against the war in Iraq and Lebanon and the future possible wars with Iran, Syria, Venezuela, etc. I am part of a peace activist group called Peace Roots Alliance and More than Warmth. In More Than Warmth we put together quilt squares which children make. We send the finished quilts to children in other countries as a gesture of peace.
