My Life After Patton:
Some Things I Remember:
I got married in 1962, had 3 Children, lived in California from 66-70,
moved back to Michigan in '70, lived in Lincoln Park till '82, then Brighton
till retirement. I swam in the masters program in Brighton L.A.F.S in '95-'97.
I moved to Florida in '99. We have just started up a masters program and
hopefully it will be a success. I never had a outside job. I was
a stay-at-home wife and mother. I met Bill, my husband of 38 years and
my best friend, in 1958 on a "Blind Date" and have been with him ever since.
My hobbies are swimming and now I am learning golf.
I grew up across from Patton and was there everyday. I loved the pool and
remember winning the Detroit City Championship for swimming when I was
around 10-12, not really sure after all these years. I just remember winning.
I was taught to swim by Joan Kintzing when I was 6 years old and I remember
she said when I could swim across the pool I could join the swim team.
I swam till I went to Western High then I swam for Western. I had Mrs.
Herring for my coach.

I taught my children to swim and my youngest daughter swam through high
school and also at Grand Valley State University. My life growing
up swimming is why I wanted to join Masters, so that after all these years
I can get the thrill of competition again.
