I am a former Ohioan who has lived in Missouri since 1977. I have been married since 1980 to a wonderful man. We have two daughters and two grandchildren. I retired in 2007 from Federal Service (7 years in the Army and 27 years as a civilian). I have had the joy of living in Ohio, Alabama, Arizona, Okinawa, and Missouri. I love to bake, crochet, read, and raise flowers.
