Married to Albert - 41 years
2 Children: Ken and Amy, both living in the area and doing well.
2 Grandchildren: Gabrielle (3), Aniken (2 months).
After graduating from Northampton Commercial College, worked for the US government in Washington, DC, where I met my husband. Moved back to New Hampshire (Plainfield) in 1970 and have lived here since. Al is retired from Dartmouth College where he was a computer operator.
Became the sole librarian at the public library - just by chance - and found the perfect job. Thirty-five years ago, the library was open only 4 hours a week; now it's 26 hours a week. Two years ago, after much hard work, we built an addition which almost tripled the space. Since this is a "part time" job, I also work 20 hours a week at Kimball Union Academy in the Alumni/Development Office as an alumni assistant and database manager. Both positions complement each other and I enjoy them.
Being librarian has naturally led to a lot of volunteer involvement in town and an interest in local history and preservation. Current volunteer activities include being archivist for the historical society, co-chair of the Maxfield Parrish Stage Set Committee (charged with the care and preservation of the stage set Parrish (American artist and town resident) designed for the town hall in 1916), Town Hall Committee (charged with the preservation of the 200-year-old building), and co-editor of the monthly town newspaper. Two of the projects I especially loved were being co-editor, typist and one of the authors of our 750-page town history published in 1991 and being typist, technical editor and indexer of a Cornish Colony history published in 1996. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the varied projects I have been involved in.
For additional fun, I was a member of the Izmira Middle Eastern Dance Troupe for over 20 years.
This small town really keeps me busy. And now, the grandkids do, too.
