We have two children, Donald Joseph born in 1957 and Lori Michelle born in 1959.

  Don continued his education after we were married, and had a degree in electrical engineering. He was employed at Autonetics in Anaheim for ten years, then Northrop Corp. until he became ill with cancer.

   Fortunately, we  were able to do some traveling together, to Hawaii, Florida, Washington D.C., a three week tour to Europe covering 14 countries, Oregon to visit friends, seeing much of Arizona, the Grand Canyon and Carlsbad Caverns. Traveling was Donís passion, second only to spending lots of time in the summer floating in the pool on a raft while reading a book. He was an avid reader.
     We moved to Corona, California in 1964; I still live there, close to Lori.

I would love to hear from any classmates.  My email address is..  dianeeckardt@yahoo.com
