I came to SRQ in 1971 when I married my husband. I moved 17 times before coming here so I lived in many places but was born in IL. I have 2 children and 2 grandchildren that fortunately live here in SRQ. Hobbies are walking, reading and cooking. I have a new puppy that is 6 months old and is named Ellie. My new goals are to travel and take up kayaking.
