Pets? A speckled dachshund named Freckles

Who would play you in the movie of your life? My sister

First job? Waitress

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to go into computers, and I did. I have two college degrees, and now I’m retired.

Favorite charity? Salvation Army. We work here at the church.

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I met the Bush family. Kennebunkport is not a big place, and we both had summer homes there our whole life. The boys grew up in Texas, and they would come up to the summer home. They went to our church, and we’d see them occasionally on the beach.
