Worked at Heckett on Main Street in Butler - from 8/27/73 until 12/6/01 as an Administrative Assistant in the Engineering Department for 28 years until I was downsized, then worked in Boyers for USIS for 7 months; then came back to Butler in 2003 to work for Center for Community Resources. Got married June 22, 1974, will have been married for 39 years as of June 22, 2013, started out living in Sarver PA then moved back to my hometown of Meridian and put a double wide on property across from the "old" Meridian Inn, now W.Rick's and then bought my Grandparents home. Will be working 40 years as of August 27, 2013. Enjoy going to Car shows around the area to show the 1964 Chevy Impala Super sport we have and ride the Harley Road King when the weather permits.

My husband passed away June 3, 2017 the day after my birthday at Butler memorial hospital from a heart attack and my Doberman passed two weeks after my husband from a broken heart. I retired May 17, 2019 best job ever!

Went to Ft Lauderdale Florida, went on a Caribbean cruise before I retired and spent a month in Clearwater Florida and plan on going to Ft Myers/Sanibel

2017 was not a good year for me lost my cousin Denny Martsolf July 2017 and another cousin Terri Martsolf two day before Christmas 2017 both from cancer .

February 2022 spent a month in ft myers Florida loved the area and weather. Got to see the manatee which were amazing with there babies!!

Came back the beginning of March and started the process of getting a total knee replacement that happened June 20, 2022. Within a month I went from using a walker to a cane to a walking stick to nothing. I was also allowed to drive after my staples were taken out. I spent six weeks at my friends house recovering since his place is one story and I live in a two story house. And the hardest part was seeing my knee after surgery and the therapy was brutal. It isn’t for the weak believe me!!!

But now that it is over and I’m recovered I’m back out fishing again after five
months of not being on the water. So if you are thinking about knee replacement surgery I’ll be happy to share my experience.

Plan on going to Clewiston Florida for six weeks in February 2023!

School Story:

Graduated 1971 from Butler, went to Erie Business Center in Erie PA and graduated with Associate Degree in Specialized Business Executive Secretarial Sciences June 1973.

Didn’t make it to Florida this year. On June 20 I had total knee replacement and stayed at my friends place until August 1. Did go from crutches to a walker to a cane and a walking stick and I was able to drive all in a month. Best decision I made to get surgery. My friend had major back surgery in December so our plans for Florida were put on hold till 2024. Plan on being in Florida for six weeks then. We both will now set off alarms anytime there is a metal detector in the area! So busy now getting things done like spring cleaning and soon planting a garden and yard work.

Since I retired I also learned to fish, so go fishing along the Allegheny River in Parker pa where a friend has a camp. Enjoy sitting on the deck watching boats go by and the fish jump seeing geese, cranes, ducks, eagles, and deer in the area. And watching the moon come up over the river. Also enjoy going out on a side by side trail riding. Life is short so enjoy it while you can!

Retirement is the best job I ever had!
Spent the month of February 2022 in Ft myers Florida. So nice to get out of the cold and snow.
Spent the month of February 2020 in Clearwater Florida enjoying the sun and sand and getting away from the cold and snow
In April of 2019 before I retired went on my first cruise to the Caribbean and lived seeing the blue water and different cultures.
In 2018 flew on an airplane for the very first time to ft Lauderdale Florida for a quick get away weekend

At Butler hospital. Learned a lot of things during the time since and how strong you become
When you have no choice but to take charge of things. I retired in May 17 2019 and am enjoying every minute of it
