Yes! Attending Reunion
Residing In: Katy, TX USA
Spouse/Partner: Michael Ritchie
Occupation: Student Ministries Program Coordinator at St. Martin's Episcopal Church
Children: Emily, born 1984; William, born 1992

I married Michael in 1984 and we moved up to his hometown of Buffalo, New York, where we lived for 23 years.
We moved back to the Houston area in 2010, and now live in Katy (which was nothing but rice paddies and cow grazing when we were in high school). Our daughter is a CMA, and runs the office for a pediatric neurologist. Emily has also given us two wonderful grandsons, Logan and Rowan, and a spirited beautiful granddaughter named Renoa. They are the joy of my heart! Our son Will completed one year of college, in the musical theatre program at Sam Houston State University, and is now a professional actor. He is engaged to the lovliest girl and we're looking forward to that wedding!
I'm very involved in my home church, St. Peter's UMC, where I'm a member of the Chancel Choir, and I serve the Student Ministry as well. I enjoyed raising my kids in Buffalo, but I'm so happy to be home!

School Story:

I remember when we were rehearsing for Once Upon A Mattress and Annabette was to play the part of Fred. We got Miss Brown to give us both passes to get out of class so I could go help her rehearse a dance number. Miss Brown said on the note Annabette has to learn how to bump and grind and Florence has to help her. I still can't believe she did that, or that it worked.

Debbie, So sorry I haven't really been keeping up with social media and had no idea that your husband Brit had passed away. I am so sorry for your loss, one too deep for me to imagine. I pray that God is walking with you through these days and that you feel his arms carrying you. I pray for peace in your heart. God bless your beautiful children and grandchildren who will represent his legacy into the next generations.

Happy birthday sweetie. Sorry this is a day late. Spent the last few days in hurricane clean up efforts and lost track of the days. Hope you had a great day. Come see me soon (not too soon unless you plan to swim here...lol). We are OK and didn't flood. Just trying to help our community get back on it's feet.

I really enjoyed seeing so many of y'all at the reunion last month. Can't wait to do that again! You know, I hear from a lot of friends that they never attend a reunion, they've got nothing in common with high school mates, their class had no spirit, yada yada. So glad that's not the case here. I just smile and tell my friends that Sharpstown Class of '75 ROCKS!!
