I am a wife, mother and grandmother. Family is an important to me. I enjoy gardening, reading and home projects.


My husband, Robert, and I retired to northern Wisconsin in 2003. I grew up here and attended Duluth Gospel Tabernacle. We raised our 3 children in Bloomington, MN and attended the Bloomington A/G Church for 31 years. We have been attending the Hawthorne A/G Church about 15 years.  My relationship with Jesus Christ is important, He has been faithful.


We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.                                                                         - Hebrews 6:19 (NIV)

I met the Lord at 17 years old. Life has been full of ups and downs but God has always been faithful, even when I haven't. I have three wonderful children and a beautiful wife of 40+ years, as well a wonderful church family. I was born in Minnesota and grew up in Southern California. Disneyland and Disney World are my favorite places to visit. I look forward to many more years of serving God and His church. May God richly bless each one of you - stay faithful, He always is. 

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.                                                                      -John 1:1-4
