CA Retired (from trying to decide on one) Married 2 Pierce Engelstein 5 and two step Live for today and keep a good attitude. After Senn went to Wright JC for two years. Left for Hawaii to train for Peace Corps. Was to go to Philippines, didn't make it, couldn't learn Tagalog. Left for San Francisco just for fun. Met husband, had two beautiful daughters. Was married for 8 years and divorced (we're still good friends). Became bank teller, RV salesperson, child councelor at Shelter, and Banquet Manager. In our yearbook, after ambition, I said to "decide on a career". I've retired from trying to decide on a career.Some of the happiest times of my life were spent at Senn.
12 years ago my best friend passed away from cancer, 9 years ago I married her husband. We play golf every day and enjoy the beautiful Rancho Mirage sun. Enjoy bridge once a week. We have a dog and cat and they own us. Don was a banker for 35 years...he's a good guy regardless. Both daughters are happily married in Northern Calif. and own their own businesses. Oldest grandaughter is 16 (are you kidding me?)two others 13 & 12. Youngest are 7 year old twins.
Good grief, where did the time go?
Most memorable day was when Bobby Wolf asked me to play Daisy Mae in his production of "Dogpatch USA". God rest his soul.
Most fun times were spent with best friend Karlynne Klein and being awed by her twirling abilities, and dancing in Senn Hall at noon and eating frys at Harry's.
Less fun times were taking algebra tests and being asked to drop chemistry.
I'm proud to be associated with such successful Sennites. Thank you Jackie and all your committee for doing such a great job...so sorry I can't be there, will miss seeing old friends and eating a REAL Chicago pizza and hot dog. Glad we got together a few years ago.
P.S. I'm not dying until the Cubs win the series.

Leslie Tanenberg (Moran)
NY retired Married 2 Boone 2 "Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure."
Pride and Prejudice Started college at Washington University in St. Louis but transferred to Columbia University in New York City, where I completed my BS, my MBA, and met my husband Bill to whom I have been happily married for nearly forty three years. After completing my MBA, I joined General Foods (now part of Kraft in Chicago), in Market Research. When my two beautiful daughters were small, I worked doing freelance marketing assignments out of my home (no such thing as maternity leave in those days!) and then joined a small market research firm in NYC. I eventually bought that company and built it up into a rather large firm known for strategic research, consumer and business-to-business, which I sold several years ago and have been retired since that time. After many years of hard work and long hours. I am happy to relax, read and enjoy the company of our two amazing little granddaughters.
Each of our daughters built wonderful careers of their own, one as an attorney and the other in organizational training. Within the past year each of them was blessed with a baby girl of her own, so Bill and I apparently timed our retirements perfectly.
I haven't done as much traveling as I had hoped to by now, preferring usually to collapse and recuperate on a beach somewhere during the years I was working, but perhaps now that will change. I have some involvement in the contemporary art scene here in New York and am on the board of Exit Art, an important not-for-profit multi-discipline cultural center.
I will not be able to be at the reunion but I hope you all have a good time.

CA Administrative Assistant Divorced Hayt T. Kennedy Be kinder than necessaryMy Life Since Senn would not be complete without mentioning that I am a sister to two great siblings, Joel and Gayle; and that my one and only nephew, Eric, has consistently amazed me throughout his 27 years of life: Graduating from Bradley University in the upper 10% of his class, with a B.S. in Finance and Economics; moving on his own to Denver, CO from Rockford, IL to work for a large, insurance corporation, and planning to work on his MBA.
Because everyone you meet is fighting
Some kind of battle. Graduated from California State University, Northridge (CSUN) with a B.A. in English. Worked as a reporter for two Southern California newspapers, as a feature writer.
The Federal Government has been my employer for the past 15 years. While at the Internal Revenue Service, I utilized both my high school and adult evening school Spanish to assist Spanish-Americans with their income tax and other citizenship documents.
Currently, I work with three program managers and their staffs(Adjudications, Records, and Production) within the Department of Homeland Security.
Near and far, I am a godmother, great godmother, good friend and neighbor to my extended families.

IL Civil Engineer Married 3 Helen C Pierce 9 I believe that hard work, a good education, starting with Senn High School, and being due diligent in ones pursuits describes some of my beliefs and certainly has made a difference in my life.
One of my favorite quotations is by the former Govenor of Michigan George Romney, "The pursuit of the difficult makes men strong." Upon graduation from Senn HS, I attended the University of Illinois at Champaign Urbana. There I received a degree in civil engineering. Shortly after graduating I entered the construction industry. As my career developed I became responsible for managing more complex projects. In the 90's I was in charge of the renovation of Soldier Field which was getting ready to host the World Cup. I was also responsible for the renovation of two vaudevillian theaters on Randolph Street in Chicago. The first project completed was the Oriental Theater, followed by the Palace. Two very rewarding projects.
Additionally, in the 70's I began investing in apartment buildings in the Rogers Park area. With the help of my wife, Carol, it matured into a prosperous full time endeavor.
My first marriage ended in divorce with one child. I remarried and together we have three wonderful children. We are very of proud of all three. They all graduated from college, the oldest from West Point, the middle from the University of Illinois at Champaign Urbana, and the youngest from Illinois State. We have nine grandchildren ranging in ages from 15 to 1, and they bring us alot of happiness.
My hobbies include reading, nature, fishing, and traveling. I have become in recent years interested in the civil war, I guess you would call a civil war buff. My wife and I have traveled to a number of battlefields, the last being Bentonville in North Carolina. We spend a lot of time in Arizona where we have a second home. We have traveled to Egypt, Eastern Central Europe, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Italy and others, and most of the US and Canada. We hope to continue doing so.
FL Retired Married 2 Stuart Mrs. Peach 2 If you tell the truth you only have to remember one thing. For all of my life's challenges, I can truly say I never gave up, gave in or gave out. I am here and everything is just fine. I have done so much. I had three positions working for someone else. 1st the B&O Railroad as a switchman, 2nd Commuter Airlines as a pilot, and 3rd Chicago Union Carpenter as a commercial carpenter. I also spent 5 years in the National Guard from 1963 to 1967.
My wife and I married 43 years ago in Detroit, Michigan. Our best man was Peter Nielsen. He still is our best man. My darling wife Kathleen finished college with a masters in Special education and completed her teaching career at the Sanibel Elementary school here in Sanibel Island, Florida where we live. She is a two time survivor of cancer and has come a long way and is still going strong.
We renewed our vows on our 40th wedding anniversary in Athlon, Ireland, near the Shannon River at the Immaculate Conception Church.
We spent most our our lives in the Chicagoland area and Stanton, Michigan where we had Christmas Tree Farms. We grew, wholesaled, and retailed our trees. We relocated from Park Ridge, Illinois to Sanibel in 2001 when our home was completed. We spend our time fishing, golfing, traveling and visiting our place in Michigan. Our travels have taken us from Zermatt, Switzerland to Costa Rica.
To all of my fellow 1960 graduates I say thanks for all the memories. You are the best and most successful men and women. From my heart I say thank you.
