If you have grandkids, what name do they call you?

Whatcha been doin' since '69:

I was in Spokane until 1980 when I went to Airline School in Portland and then started my airline career. I started in Las Vegas for a small airline, Sunworld, doing reservations, special events etc and moved to California (Bay Area) in the sales department. I then went to Northwest Airlines, SFO Sales Manager for the next 10 years. My husband and I were ready to leave California, so we went to work for Reno Air - he moved to Reno and I stayed for 2 more years commuting, and opened SFO for them and SJC. When an opening came in Reno, I got to move over here with the airline. American bought Reno Air and dismantled it so I did 2 years with Planet Hollywood and then the last 11 have been in hotel sales - now working for the Silver Legacy Resort & Casino here in downtown Reno.

We sold our old house and now live out here by the golf course.

I travel a lot for business and pleasure and am in the process of starting a small company of my own.

I go home to Spokane a lot, as my folks still live on Greenbluff. Carrie & Jeff & Geneva live in Coeur d'Alene. Shelly & Ken & Regan live in Seattle.

JANUARY 2011 - Happy New Year Everyone!!

It's been a crazy last 1/2 of the year since we saw some of the class at Curly's. Working towards retiring (I hope) in a couple of years. Grandkids getting big - they are both almost 9 now and very grown up.

LET's work hard to get as many of the class back for our 60th Birthday picnic this summer. We've had it on the home page so you have plenty of notice. Also, anyone who couldn't make it to the 40th reunion, come celebrate the BIG 60 with us! I am already there, being one of the older of your classmates....but I survived the day! I'll try and get some pictures on but hope to see you in August!!

Funniest Mead memory:

Well, I was just telling my granddaughter about sitting in the stands for a football game, after halftime and loosing my contact down under the bleachers!

Fellow classmate you were fondest of (and why):

Kathy Stephens and I were great friends and she was in my wedding! Would love to catch up to here again!

What's your biggest regret from your years at Mead High School?

I think seeing everyone at the 40th - it makes us wish we had been able to keep in touch with more people. As we live LIFE, maybe coming back together is how we learn that lesson.

Teacher who made the greatest impact on you.

Mr Eugene Fink......He was such a wonderful man and made the music soar! We learned so much about music but also showmanship and confidence.

Wishing all of my classmates a very happy and healthy New Year.

As we move forward in 2019, we get ready for our 50th reunion in September. If anyone knows of any missing classmates, let them know we would love to see them at this hcelebration. We are hoping for a 100% turnout. Let’s make it a wonderful opportunity to reminisce, laugh and tell stories. Let’s reconnect to a simpler time. Hope to see you there.

Sad to share that my husband of 21 years, Kirk Montero passed away on June 16th of a heart attack. Papa Kirk will be missed by my family and the many friends that he had throughout his wonderful airline career. He was 67 and just retired in January. Raised in Cuba, we were heading there in Nov. My one regret is that we didn't get to go back and have him tell us all is wonderful stories of growing up in Havana.
Take care of yourselves and toss kindness around!

Way to go Roger......a very special mission. Knowing you as we do, it doesn't surprise me that you are doing this in the memory of very real hero's - all that helped on 9/11.

Happy belated birthday! You spring babies finally caught up with us!
