CA Real Estate Investor/Actuary Married Boone Lucille Hubbard Don't just accept things as they are. Try your best to make them what you want them to be. My life since high school: U of I undergrad, graduate school Northeastern U in Boston in Actuarial Science. Began actuarial exams in 1968. Became a Consulting Actuary in 1972. Married an Irish Catholic girl in 1975 who, like me, didn't want to have kids. Finished actuarial exams in 1976.

After the winters of 1977-1980, moved to San Francisco in 1981 where I joined an actuarial consulting firm. Started investing in real estate in 1982. Joined my wife as a full time real estate investor in 1984. Survived, sometimes barely, several booms and busts over the years before finally settling into the mobilehome park market.

Still standing, still married, no kids. It's been a wild ride, but a mostly rewarding one, and I am still looking forward to an exciting future.

P.S. Since 1986 have been signed up to be Cryonically Suspended upon my "death". Hopefully I can convince enough of my classmates to do the same so we may possibly get together to celebrate our 500th Year Class Reunion in 2460!!

IL Marketing Consultant Married 2 Boone Ms. Forsland Treat each day as if it were your last because some day you’ll be right. I graduated Roosevelt University with a degree in Political Science and went on to graduate courses. While at Roosevelt I met my future husband, Steve Pernick and we married after graduation. We moved to Wilmette to raise our sons and have lived in the area ever since, trading our home five years ago for a condo on the lake. Our oldest son, Kevin, lives in LA and is a manager with the IRS. Our youngest, Kelly, is in Chicago and works for the accounting firm KPMG. Neither are married so no grandchildren.

In 1982, I became a pioneer in a new media, telesales, and opened an agency that employed 235 people. After selling out to my partners in 1990, I continue working as a marketing consultant to Fortune 100 companies and serve on many professional and charitable Boards.

Steve, a criminal defense attorney, and I maintain a very active business and social schedule. We still work full time; enjoy travel, theatre, and getting together with friends from across the country.

We’ve been blessed with a wonderful family, much success in our chosen fields and a positive outlook on life. Looking forward to seeing you all and catching up on the last 50 years.

IL Educator www.whereaboutsinc.com Married 2 Boone Mr Jacobson 5 Life is not a dress rehearsal. I graduated college with a degree in education and married Alan Unikel a week after graduation. We have two wonderful children. We divorced after 23 years and I married John Pacay and his 2 children several years later. We have been married for 20 years and have 5 grandchildren.

After spending a number of years as a stay-at-home mom,I returned to the classroom as a 5th grade teacher. Several years later, I went on to graduate school to get my Master's Degree and subsequently my Doctorate in school administration. I became a middle school assistant principal and then spent 8 years as a principal in Glencoe, IL. I left Glencoe to become an Assistant Superintendent in Northbrook, IL. When an early retirement incentive was offered by the state - I took it and retired at age 50. After 'retiring', I worked as a professor and program director at National Louis University and then went on to become the Vice-President of Education at Chicago Children's Museum at Navy Pier. After 'retiring', yet again, (I loved the retirement parties) from the Museum, I started my own business, providing geography based programs and products to schools, museums, etc. I sold the company last year. I currently work as a coach/mentor to new school administrators.

I love this stage of life and am blessed with an amazing husband, children, stepchildren, grandchildren, family, and friends. I just don't know where the years have gone!
Reconnecting with people who helped shape my life is such a gift.  I feel so fortunate to have grown up when and where I did. Send Barbara  a MessageSend Barbara a Message

IL Piano teacher Married 3 Boone Emanuel Jacobson 7 (1 boy and 6 girls) We go through life constantly surrounded by opportunities--cleverly disguised as problems. I attended the U of I in Urbana, earning a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Ed. (Plan B) in 1963, married three days after graduation (too young) and taught first and second grades at Ravenswood School in Chicago for three years. Then retired to become a full-time mom to three great kids--Greg (1966)-now a violinist with the Highland Park Strings and in business with his brother Rick (1970). Together they own and run a large national staffing and search organization. Jackie (1968) is now a very special Special Ed teacher at Ravinia School in HP, where she and her brothers attended school as children. The boys live in HP and Jackie lives in Vernon Hills.
The kids were growing up, my former husband and I divorced, and I went back to school, earning a Master's degree in Piano Pedagogy (back to Plan A--music--should have done it in the first place). On the way, I met and married Allen Anderson, a concert pianist and Professor of Piano and related subjects at Northeastern Illinois University--now Professor Emeritus and teaching part-time as a visiting lecturer. We've been married for 26 years and this time I got it wonderfully right! I've been teaching piano for 30 years, (studio in our Glencoe home for the past nine years). We both love teaching and making music and for now have no desire to retire. We're so fortunate to have each other, and to have our children and grandchildren all living so close to us. We are active in our synagogue and enjoy traveling, attending theater, opera and concerts, bicycling, and seeing friends. I am very grateful for every precious day and try to make the most of each one.
I can't believe that 50 years seem to have passed in the blink of an eye!  I'm so impressed with the interesting lives you all are living and am hoping to see all of my old friends at this reunion.

CA retired Widowed 2 Stone Miss Maher (3 years), Ms. DeAlbani (1 semester) Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain. I've had the best of all worlds. After college I married a wonderful man, had the typical 2.4 children (my son is tall so he counts for the extra .4) and moved to California. I planned on being a stay-at-home mom, but it turned out that that wasn't for me. It soon became clear that it was cheaper to go back to work than to pay a psychiatrist which I would have needed if I hadn't gone back to work.

I've worked in several industries usually winding up as an office manager - but always in numbers related fields. Sounds boring, huh? So, after my husband passed away I retired from THAT and opened a flight school which wound up doing everything related to general aviation. A little more exciting, right?

About a year ago I finally retired (for real this time) and now I seem to have less free time than I did when I was working.

KS 2 5 After I left Senn, I went to U of I in Champaign, was a PiKA, and graduated in three years as a special education/vocational education teacher. I passed the Chicago Certification Exam, the first time I took it, and worked at Marshall High School as an assigned teacher teaching shop and special education. I left Chicago in 1972 to work on a doctorate in vocational programming for exceptional youth and adults at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Ks. I earned my doctorate in this area from the University of Kansas Special Education Department. I taught in the department for awhile but got tired of the political correctness and went back to work in the Public Schools in Kansas City, Kansas at J.C. Harmon High School as the print shop teacher. I retired in 2005 from teaching.

I am still a ham radio operator and have been for 58 years. I am the state MARS director for Air Force MARS in State of Kansas. I am net control on six transcontinental MARS nets (which serve Army, Navy/Marine Corps, and Air Force) and net control on three Region VII Air Force MARS nets.

I am still a competitive target shooter and belong to the Mill Creek Rifle Club. I compete in the high power center fire service rifle matches which are 500 yd matches.

I collect military vehicles and belong to the Military Vehicle Preservation Association of America. I own four trucks. Two of the trucks are little ones - 3/4 ton and 1 1/4 ton. Two of the trucks are big ones - 2 1/2 tons. We drive the trucks in parades and put on static displays to remind people that if it wasn't for the military we wouldn't have the freedoms that we have.

I have two grown sons - one lives in Wichita, Ks and the other lives in Doylestown, Pa. I have five grandchildren the oldest of whom is a first year medical student at Loyola University Medical School in Chicago. My older son is a partner in a Wichita, KS law firm. My younger son is a senior director of Merck Pharmaceuticals.

I live in Lawrence, Ks which is 40 miles West of Kansas City and have lived here for 38 years.
