“My husband Michael and I just celebrated our 30th anniversary. We have 2 sons, Joshua and Matthew. Joshua graduated from West Point in 1999 and is now a Captain in the Army; currently stationed at Fort Riley Kansas. He is assigned to a Military Police Battalion on the Battalion staff; he plans to be discharged in 2003 to pursue a career as a civil engineer. Matthew graduated from NIU in 2000 with a de-gree in Operations Management and Information Systems. He works for Moore/-Wallace Business Forms as a computer operator, enjoying his job. My husband is going to retire from the Electrician’s un-ion, Local 150, soon. I have been working for the Lake County Housing Authority for the past 13 years. In my spare time I have become a quilter, making many quilts for family and friends; but now it has be-come an addiction. I have four quilts in progress! Attending plays locally and in Chicago, and some times in New York, has become another love. We are very fortunate in Lake County to have several wonderful playhouses; two are PM&L in Antioch and Marriott in Lincolnshire. Both sons are dating girls long distance; Josh is seeing Senia who lives in Ottawa, Canada, and Matt is seeing Katherine who is a senior at Tulane in New Orleans. So, poor me, no grandchildren, and no baby quilts to make! My advice: Although I am looking forward to retirement, I want to enjoy each day and not wish my life away.”
