10/14/05 (from Frank Bushell, Carolyn's husband of 41 years):
Carolyn really remembered her
classmates from high school. I just spent the weekend with Karen Spencer-Anderson
and her husband down in Vancouver, Washington. We are in constant contact
and every once in a while the school chums come up in conversation.
Great to remember a lot of
the good times, Carolyn and I had 41 years together and for that I am
gratefull, we have three great children, all educated and self sufficent.
And I am a staff Landscape Architect for one of the largest Landscape
Construction firms in the Seattle Area which keeps me busy, thank goodness.
I have attached pictures.
Update 10/15/04: With much
sadness we have learned that Carolyn passed away from cancer on September
Still retired after 30+ years at Ma Bell. we just had our 39th anniversary,
have 3 children, 4 grandsons and 2 granddaughters. We bought a little
home in Tacoma, WA this past summer. We downsized and are enjoying "less."
We see Karen Spencer Anderson and husband Andy often. They live close
by in Vancouver, WA. Karen and I have been best friends since 7th grade
at Northrup School.
I am taking hot glass classes and our new place has a work area for my
shop. I am not famous yet! I have collected art glass and paperweights
for 20+ years. I have enjoyed all of the bio's so far. Hope to read more!
Please write. FYI, we don't own a pub... firstname.lastname@example.org is my husband's
publishing business. It stands for "one leaf on the family tree."
I am retired! 30 1/2 years with Ma Bell-now I get paid to stay home! Married
38 years to Frank; 3 children/5 grandchildren. Karen Spencer Anderson
has remained my best friend for 44+ years. I collect paperweights/love
to sail-lived on our sailboat for awhile. Thankful for good health and
a great memory-love to reminisce about "the past". Love Washington state-took
me 10 years to call it "home", tho. We have been here 22 years now. Will
answer all e-mail from old friends as I just sit around now!! Love to
travel on Amtrak-went to the Mall of America twice via Amtrak just to
shop and see the beautiful prairie-by myself the 1st time and took my
husband the second time so he could enjoy the relaxation and scenery.
Future goals for the next 56 years:take lessons on glass blowing and work
in a hothouse making beautiful art glass; live on a sailboat again and
sail to Alaska;learn to cook;write a book.
