Before our 10th reunion in 197, Flo wrote:
After graduation in 1961, I worked as Departmental Secretary for the Department of Instructional Technology at Wayne State University in Detroit and was promoted to Executive Secretary/Assistant to the Dean of the College of Education until the summer of 1970 when--while vacationing in Denver, Colorado visiting family--a blind date changed my life. Two weeks after meeting Philip, we were engaged and married three months later--December 27, 1970 in Detroit. We moved me to Denver right after our wedding.
I worked as the Department Secretary for the Division of Biometrics, Department of Preventive Medicine at the University of Colorado Medical Center in Denver. In 1972, I was under consideration for the position of Executive Secretary to the Dean of the College of Medicine when I found out our first child was on the way. I remained with the University until my daughter was born and then took some time off.
I returned to work in layout, design and production for the Rocky Mountain Business Journal, a weekly publication for the Denver business and real estate community, where my skills were developed and expanded. That position filtered into the development of my own business, where I could work at home at my own pace--especially pertinent, as my second child was on the way. It was great having the control of my time that was so necessary in raising two young girls. And having my own business afforded me the opportunity to be productive, as well as parental.
Philip and I have been happily married for over 30 years and adore our two wonderful daughters: Keri 28 and Dani 23. Keri is a graduate of Metropolitan State College in Denver with a B.S. in Business Management and Dani just graduated from the University of Colorado in Boulder with a B.S. in English and Pre-Pharmacy. My husband just recently retired from 20 years as a Deputy Sheriff for the City & County of Denver. Our daughters have great jobs and we are extremely proud of them.
And to live in Colorado is a privilege!! There's no other place quite like it. Beautiful weather almost all of the time. I still have my own business and am responsible for the business activities of three major companies. I am also very involved in the volunteer/charitable community with executive responsibilities for two major women's organizations.
My life is very fulfilling and I love to write, play classical piano and include my expertise as a Commercial Artist in all that I do. My husband and I are looking forward to attending the Reunion.
