I have never left Sarasota! After graduation I worked for Sears five years. During that time I married Frank Wertz, RHS class of 62.

In 1966 I began working at Palmer Bank in the Bookkeeping Dept. and various depts. thru the years until I eventually retired in 1996 after 30 years. Palmer Bank became Southeast Bank then First Union Bank than Wachovia which is Wells Fargo today.

Our only child, Doug, was born in 1968 and he and his wife, Angie, have blessed us with three beautiful grandchildren; Colin,12, Austin, 10 and Miss Taylor, 6. We are thankful they live around the corner from us. We watch the younger two after school. My next job was for 7 years for an Optometrist and then four years as a recepionist; permanently retiring in 2008.

Frank and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary in 2009 with a lovely cruise to Alaska. We are looking forward to cruising through the Panama Canel in the future.

Frank and I have always been active in church. He plays trumpet and I play clarinet in the church orchestra for first service. I sing in the choir for second service. We have been serving the LORD in the music ministry for over 35 years and love it!

After retiring, I decided to be a volunteer at Doctor's Hospital one day a week. I volunteer in the "Happy Place", the gift shop, on Friday afternoons and really enjoy it.

It doesn't seem like 50 years have gone by. WOW! I am looking forward to seeing everyone, Lord willing. Take care everyone, until we meet again.
