Upon graduation from Riverdale, I went to work for 2 yrs. at Sun Life in Mtl. Along with my friend Laurel Stirling (’70) (whom I have since lost touch with, but would love to hear from).


I married my 1st husband in’72 and moved to Pincourt, then later to Burlington, ON.  After the birth of 2 daughters, Rachel, now 27 and Brenda, now 25, we purchased a Sunoco Service Station in north Burlington.  It came with a house and I operated it on my own for 6-1/2 yrs., when the girls were 2 & 4 yrs. old.  It was really hard work as a single mom, but I loved it!


It was there (Sue’s Sunoco) that I met Bill, my current husband & we became the “Brady Bunch”.  Bill, his 2 boys, Bill Jr, now 34, and Scott, now 32, joined my little family of 3 in 1986.  I sold the gas station and we married in 1988 and had a set of twin boys, Glen & Jeff, now 14.  Hence the ‘Brady Bunch”!!!


Bill, the twins, and I are now living in Caledonia, ON, just south of Hamilton.  My Mom & Dad followed us there and are living just 5 min. away from us.


I am a receptionist for Crawford Adjusters Canada in Hamilton & Bill is a trucker, hauling steel or lumber anywhere between Windsor & Toronto.


Even though we are still raising kids, we are the proud grandparents of 5!  Brenda has a set of 5 yr. old twin boys and Bill Jr. has 3 kids!


My brother Doug (’69), married Debbie Howes (’73), sister of Doug howes (’71) & twin sister of Dorothy Wilson (’73). 


We are all coming to the reunion together & hope to see many of you there!.
