My early years were spent in Connecticut, but my family moved to Vermont when I was 12 years old.  After college, my husband (Rex) and I moved frequently due to his military service.  Our first assignment was to the Republic of Panama, which we loved.   Thereafter, we lived in Tennessee, Ohio, Georgia, and Michigan.

We came to Aiken 10 years ago due to a job transfer...

My hobbies have included genealogy, calligraphy, reading, and home improvement projects.


  1. Approximately when did you join the On The Same Page Book Club?

I was one of the original members of The On The Same Page Club which began about nine years ago.


  1. What is your favorite book that you read in your book club and why?

One of the books that I have most enjoyed reading with the On The Same Page Book Club is “West With The Night” by Beryl Markham.  It is a beautifully written true story of an early female aviation pioneer who was an independent and accomplished woman.
