Contrary to what some have believed, I am not "lost" to Proviso alums.  |:-)


After Proviso, I married Dr. Charles F. Falk, whom I met when we both attended Elmhurst College.  Together, we had four kids, each of whom are college-educated and "out-of-the-nest."  They have given us three grand-daughters--so far.  I enjoy spoiling them.  As this is written, we have two more grandkids "on the way."


After my school days, and after being a stay-at-home Mom, I worked as a real estate administrator and, later, as a pre-school teacher until my retirement.  We've moved around a bit and have lived in Texas (twice), Oklahoma, and Kentucky before returning to the Chicago area. 


I enjoy traveling and have done so extensively in the U.S. and in Europe. My husband and I plan to do more of that until it is no longer easy for us to get around.  I also enjoy books, church work, and tending to my garden.


I wish good health and long life to my Proviso classmates.

                                       Commentary on the location of the photo, by Charles:

                                              The photo was taken in August 2007 at Stalheim Gorge in Norway.  The spot

                                                                     was a strategic control point for military traffic in WWII.  Some of the concrete

                                                                     bunkers built to house artillery weapons that secured the site are still in place.

                                                                     A wonderful hotel, looking out over the gorge is in place there today.
