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!

Velia, I heard Pat was convincing you to come to the reunion - I hope you do. I would like to try Zumba too :-)

The obituary hasn't been posted on the funeral home website yet. We just saw the Death Notice in the newspaper. Same spelling of Andersen, same middle initial, same age, so we are assuming it's him. Will keep checking for the obituary.
