Comments

50 years is a lot to catch up on! After graduating from Case, I attended UW-Parkside and earned a degree in English. Then I went to Seattle University and got a degree in Health Information. I returned to Racine and worked at St. Mary's for 10 years. I married Pat Sarto and helped him raise his son Perry.
After working at St. Mary's, I went to work at College of Lake County in Illinois (commuting from Racine) as a faculty member in the Health Information program. After 19 years as a faculty member, I was appointed the Dean of Biological and Health Sciences, where I served for 8 more years until retirement.
Along the way we had two children of our own. Now in my retirement I enjoy spending time with the 6 grandchildren (3 grown and 3 young) and even 1 great-grandchild! I learned bridge after retiring and though I'll never be very good I enjoy it. I also spend some time swimming and gardening and reading.
I enjoyed my work but I was ready to retire when I turned 60. Now I stay busier than I ever thought I would be! I always lived in Racine/Mt. Pleasant and love it here.

School Story

My memories are pretty fuzzy of high school. I do remember the Theater 32 class with Mr. Mittag and the play The Generation Gap!

We enjoyed a mini-reunion of 4 classmates yesterday, hosted by Jeanine Raffini Fassl and her husband Rick. Classmates Rich Hinderholtz, Denise Anastasio, Jeanine and Jean Fergus Veltman are shown in the first picture. Rich’s wife Jane and Jean’s husband Jim are included in the second one. Many thanks to Jeanine and Rick for opening their home to us. I hope many of you also reach out to connect with your classmates!

Sharing a photo that Terry Scott George provided - it's also on the Classmates Photo Gallery, Classmates personal photos. It's a picture of 9th graders at Case (the first year it opened) on their trip to Washington, DC with teacher Mr. Finley. Not sure who the students are though!
