Place of birth: St. Louis, Mo.

Family: Husband, two grown children, seven grandchildren and my 91-year-old mother.

Q: When did you move to Edwardsville, and what brought you here?

A: 1971. We moved from the Mission area to Edwardsville to build a new home on an acre of land owned by my husband’s aunt. She had a dog kennel called Good-B-Havin Kennels at the time.

Q: What’s the biggest risk you’ve ever taken?

A: I am not a risk taker. But when my husband and I moved to Memphis, Tenn., in 1988, I didn’t know how that was going to turn out. We only lived there three years and met many nice people.

Q: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

A: What goes around comes around! Treat people the way you would like to be treated and they will treat you the same way back.

A: I am very outgoing and friendly, I’m responsible, and my family is the most important thing in my life.

Q: What did you want to be when you grew up?

A: I started college to become a teacher but got off track and worked with seniors the majority of my work experience. I did work with children the last eight years before I retired.

Q: What’s your ideal vacation spot?

A: The Colorado Rockies or any other mountain area.
