2rd Vice President- Ways and Means
I was born in Nebraska and came to California as a small child and lived throughout Ventura, Los Angeles and the OC until I came to college and met my husband Jim at CSULB and we have been married for 50years. We have four grown children and 7 grandchildren. Jim and I moved to Rossmoor in 1983 and I became involved with Precious Life in 1989 and have been with them ever since serving the homeless pregnant adult woman and her children. I served as a founding member of Los Alamitos Grad Night Committee and then as the treasurer for 13 years while our children were in high school. I am currently serving on the OC Homeless Issues Task Force as well as a member of Los Alamitos Chamber and Chair of the Cypress Chamber.
A fun fact is that my husband and I have been to three inaugurations and what a wonderful experience.
I enjoy being involved with the WOCRWF because I am able to share values of America as she was founded and work to preserve the Constitution of the USA.
