Brief update on life since leaving Tooele High School:
Attended BYU for a short time (eloped while there).

Worked at dad's grocery store in Tooele for 10 years after graduation.

Moved to American Fork, Utah. Worked at American Fork Hospital for 8 years. Cooked at a rest home in Orem for 2 years. I was chef at ZCMI Tiffin Room in Orem for 18 years.

Back in grocery business for 11 1/2 years, at "Smith's Food and Drug" in Orem. Still working.

Hobbies: crocheting, camping, crossword puzzles, and grandchildren.

Have been president of the American Fork Lions Club for the last 3 years. Enjoy community service and work in my Church callings.

Had left knee replaced 4 years ago and have arthritis quite badly, so I keep working to keep things moving.

Daughter -- Peggy June Chesley -- has 2 children, and works as receptionist at V.A. Hospital in Salt Lake.
Son -- Kevin John Saxton -- has 4 children, and works construction (steel) and environmental clean-up.
Daughter -- Kerri Lee Green -- works as receptionist in clinic in Salt Lake City, and has 4 children.
Son -- Brian Neil Saxton -- only child not born in Tooele. Has no children. Teaches English and Drama at Timpanogos High School in Orem, Utah.

Love all of the great guys and gals I went to school with, and wish all of you the best that life has yet to offer.

Husband John Saxton retired from Tooele Army Depot in 1990 after 5 by-pass heart surgery, and now works part time at Walmart in American Fork. We will have been married 50 years in October 2002. Long time with one man -- right?
