I was born September 20, 1945 in San Diego, California. I have lived in California, Arizona and Oregon. I married in 1964 in Escondido, CA to my first husband. I was a member of the Lutheran Church, Wisconsin Synod. I moved with my husband to Oregon in 1970. I have two children, John and Susan. My first husband died in 2006. I converted to Orthodoxy in the fall of that year. I remarried four years ago and I am a member of St. Anne Orthodox Church in Corvallis, OR. I am retired.
