Lived in Asia for 11 years with former husband - Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong. Returned to Meadville after the death of Larry Graham in 2002 (we married in 1987) to look after my invalid parents and teach at Allegheny, as I still do. Jim and I married in 2007 after meeting on the internet! He is from Peoria IL and attended the 2005 reunion with me. A journalist and former English teacher, he is writing a biography of my Dad.

School Story:

Wanting to swim for MHS, I applied for the team, which at that time (1956) was training at the YM.
Coach DiMaria delivered the bad news - the team, all boys, practiced in the nude and if I joined, they would have to wear suits, which would clog the pool drain. HA. This is going in my feminist memoirs. (I continued to train with Coach Hanson at Allegheny until Mono stopped my swimming for awhile, as I swam for the women's team my freshman year at the U. of Arizona).

Words I give you words
to tell your own story
to whisper or shout
and crying out loud
to celebrate life without worries.
Happy birthday Diane!
