I haven't been to a reunion since our 10th and I was really looking forward to our 35th, however it's not looking very promising.  But I'm not giving up hope yet.
 Would like to hear from everyone, I'm on facebook, hope to chat with you soon.

September 10, 1957 Free yet disabled Widowed 2
I recently lost my husband Marty after 24 years of marriage and 2 beautiful girls. We had known each other than we ever thought we had. While going though his mother's belongings when she passed we found out that he was bussed to Madison elementary for the first grade and that we were in the same first class with Mrs. Gow as our teacher.

I've lived in the area since we've graduated and moved back to the old homestead too care for my mother after my father's passing. After mom's passing and now my husband unexpected passing I'm thinking about to packing up and go where ever life leads me.

Anita, my oldest daughter lives with me at the moment but her life will be taking her places soon enough and Carly is married and she lives with her husband in Virginia as he is in the Navy and their looking to be going to Spain soon.

I have yet been to a class reunion but I'm looking forward to seeing some of you that iI have thought about through out the years. Please come out and join us. If this is your first one also as some of you had told me, great we will do this together.

After living in California for 19 years, I returned to Michigan and have been working at a non-profit higher education organization for the past 9 years and thoroughly enjoy what I do.  I had married while in CA but discovered I had made a pretty bad choice in a partner.  I then decided being single wasn't so bad after all.  I returned to MI in '01 and not long after, met a musician who was on the road traveling.  We had a long distance relationship for 4 years before he asked me to marry him (a great way to get to know someone!)  We just celebrated our second anniversary.  Life is good; I haven't looked back and we just keep looking forward together.

July 23, 1957 Veterinary Assistant Married 3
After graduating from John Glenn I worked as a keypunch operator at a service bureau for 2 years and was then hired by the City of Westland at the age of 19.  I held many different clerical jobs in different City departments throughout the years including the Police Dept and DPS.  In my last year of employment with the City I served as Ordinance Officer which was definetly the most challenging and interesting position I'd held.  I retired from the City in 2003 after 27 years of employment.

After retiring, I took the summer off and was then hired as a Veterinary Assistant at Kern Rd Vet Clinic in Fowlerville, Mi.  I mostly work with dogs and cats and love my job!

In 1980 I married my husband Tom whom I started dating in high school.  We lived in Westland for the first two years and then moved to Livonia.  In 1993 we moved out to the country to a small town called Gregory, Mi.  We love the country life and would never move back to the suburbs!

We have 3 wonderful sons, Chris 27, Matt 26 and Nick 23.  Chris works for a company called Creature Control, Matt is a phlebotomist at Chelsea Hospital and is going to school for a degree in the health field and Nick is at Ferris State University and will graduate next year with a degree in Plastics Engineering and in Mechanical Engineering.

We also have one dog, Harley, a lab mix, two barn cats, Mickey and Jade and two indoor cats, Recon and Jonathan.

I have never been to a class reunion but am thinking about going to this one.  This website is amazing!  Thanks to everyone who is working so hard to make this happen!

Lots of fun memories- Marching Band, Musicals, JGHS Echo newspaper, Yearbook, Aquettes - gee i don't even know how to spell it any more?-

Lots of memories from Band camp (Camp Tanuga), Mackinaw Island

Times sure have changed - can't imagine what school would have been like with computers - all those articles for the Newspaper that we had to type and varitype the bylines for the Yearbook - so much easier - automatically corrected, etc.

Summer in Germany with Linda K., Jim K. and others.  I have been back to visit the family that I stayed with in 1974.

I've been married for 30 years to Dick Clark, a fellow Spartan.  We have two boys, Scott and David.  They live close by in Maryland.  Scott, 28, works for Fed Ex and David, 26, provides help desk support.

We are in the middle of a house renovation project.  We're very close to finishing a 50 x 14 ft addition with a new deck at the rear of our house.  It's exciting that it's almost over.

I play handbells in an advanced public performance choir in Annandale, VA, I enjoy pullling weeds with the Weed Warriors and Trail rangers in our county, I teach Sunday School at my church (been teaching for a long time), I like to travel (my husband worked for 7 years in Paris, France) (recently returned from a cruise in the Caribbean in August)

My prayers and condolences to the families of fellow classmates who are no longer with us.

Can't wait to see everybody!

June 20, 1957 Interior Designer www.michelineasid.com Married 5
Boy......where do I start.......after 35 years a lot has happened in my life.  I went to MSU after JGHS and after 3 years I finally found my career path, which took me to Chicago for design school.  I graduated with a BS in Interior Design, and began doing commercial interiors there.  I married in 80' and started having my family.  Decided to move to FL in 84', where I had 2 more daughters.  I worked for an Architectural firm for many years, until I changed into Residential design.  I divorced and remarried in 94', on Valentines Day, to my soul mate.  I gained two more daughters from his previous marriage to make a total of 5 girls to raise.  We went on to build a wonderful home in the country where we also started a business breeding Thoroughbred Race Horses.  Although it had proven to be financially a bad move, it has been very rewarding otherwise. We birthed over 20 foals, some went on to race and win, and others.....well we still have now.   Our daughters are all grown and gone, but we still have 6 horses and 6 dogs to care for; 2- Great Pyrenees, 3- Maltese, & 1-Golden Retriver.  Only one of the girls are married, and NO grandchildren yet.  

My husband & I both work outside the farm in our own professions, but I operate my design business from my home in order for me to cover all ends.  I have had my business now for the last 8 years and love  running my own show.  Recently I have become a LEED AP designer (for Green interior certification) as well, and have also started running my own kitchen and bath remodeling business with a great cabinet line.  So if you are ever in the sunny Sarasota, FL area, look me up by this site or my website.......or if you are looking at finding a great vacation home.......look me up as well.....maybe I can help you fix it up........and have a great time getting reaquainted with ole' times.

I look forward to attending and seeing everyone.  Having lived in Florida since 1984 it’s been hard to keep in touch.  I can’t imagine going back to living where it snows.

 

Thank you Loren and the committee for all that you’ve done!

 

My wife Melanie and I celebrate our 30 year anniversary this year.  Our son Kyle is 23 and just graduated from the Central Florida Fire Academy and will soon attend paramedic school.  Our son Jordan is 21 and a junior at Florida State and wants to go to law school.  He played on the FSU basketball team as a freshman walk-on for a year.

 

I’m an attorney for United Space Alliance in Titusville Florida just outside the Kennedy Space Center.  My office is on John Glenn Boulevard!  We’re NASA’s largest contractor.   We manage Space Shuttle operations and the US portion of the international space station.  The whole aerospace industry is in a state of paralysis following the Obama administration’s proposed NASA budget and the cancellation of the Constellation program. 

 

I’m also an adjunct faculty member at Webster University and teach graduate courses in ethics and business law.

 

See you in September.

I married my high school sweetheart, Dennis Cecil, in 1978 and we immediately moved to Jacksonville, North Carolina while he was in the United States Marine Corps.  While in North Carolina, I became a Labor and Delivery nurse and changed to Pediatrics when we returned to Michigan.   I currently work in the Birthing Center at the same hospital where I worked as a Obstetrical nurses aide when I was a John Glenn High School Co-op student (talk about coming full circle!).  Dennis and I have 3 amazing kids - our son is 28 and is a prosecutor.  He married a wonderful girl this past June who is a resident in family medicine.  Our daughters are 27 and 23. Our 27 year old has dated her firefighter/paramedic for 7 years and is getting married this October.  She & I work at the same hospital.  Our youngest still lives at home and is a massage therapist but is currently involved in an exciting "project" that I can't talk about yet (YES, it is killing me!) ;-)       We have an 8 month old boxer puppy (what were we thinking??!!) and we are the proud grandparents of a Jack Russell terrier, a black lab and several adorable fish!  We keep in touch with several former classmates and still share laughs about good times at JGHS!   Thanks for the effort put into making this site - you have done a great job!

Still living in Fargo, North Dakota since 1984. I teach and coach at North Dakota State University. Married 25 years this spring to Don (head men's track and field coach at NDSU). I have two girls. Kelsey is a sophomore at NW Missouri State University and plays Vb there. Kira is a sophomore in high school and like her older sister plays BB VB and runs Track. Kira is 6-3 how did that happen? She is one of the top high jumpers in the US- cool since I coach the jumps. Most of my time is spent watching our girls compete in various sports. We spend most of our family time fishing at our lake place in Manitoba, Canada and snorkeling wherever we can find great deals to visit.

Not sure if I can come to the reunion, (still working on that one) I am excited so many Nankin Mills people are attending. I keep in touch with Loren and Theresa Genslak the most. My mom lives in Canton and I drive by the old neighborhood and took my girls to see John Glenn. Great Memories.

September 25, 1957 Event Staff Coordinator Married
After graduating from John Glenn High School, I joined the United States Army and spent 3 years as a Company Clerk/Blotter Clerk in the Military Police at Fort Ord California.  I moved back to Michigan for a short time, married in 1983 and then moved to Florida in 1985.  I worked as an Academic Counselor for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach Florida for a few years.  After that I ran a day care (LaPetite) for a couple of years until the heartache of seeing how people treat their precious little children made me emotionally ill all the time.  My husband and I have not been blessed with children, and it broke my heart to see how some people (more than I ever cared to know) just did not appreciate the gift given them by God. I then went to work as an Office Manager for a Century 21 office and then my husband and I bought a franchise for one of the Real Estate Publications in the area.  We owned and worked it for 10 years until the Real Estate market went belly up and our publication died a slow and agonizing death.  I am currently an Event Staff Coordinator at the local Convention Center/Arena in Daytona Beach.  I love it.  I am in charge of providing, coordinating and supervising the staff for all events at the center - events range from sporting events, to concerts, to political conventions and trade shows, to name a few.  It has been so long since I have seen all my friends from simpler days and I am looking forward to making the trip in September to see you all again.

Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional......    I suppose that sums up my life to date.

After graduation I went to make one, just one skydive and haven't stopped. Over the years I won a Silver and Bronze Metal competing at the U.S. Skydiving Nationals and hold 7 World Records.  Most current world record was set February 2006, in Thailand, 400-Way.

When my husband and I aren't jumping out of airplanes, we like to scuba drive, race motorcycles and participate in long distance motorcycle rides.  In 2007 a group of 4 rode our motorcycles from Key West, Florida to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska and back. 13,000+ miles in 5 weeks.

I have three grown daughters who are absolutely wonderful and I'm proud to say I'm a grandmother to a horse.  

My parents, sister and brother are all living in Michigan. In 2002 I moved to Florida.  DeLand, Florida to be exact, the skydiving capital of the world  :-)

August 04, 1957 Home Remodeling Married 3
After graduating I worked for GM/EDS for 17 years in computers/engineering. Met my beautiful wife, Rosanne (married 27 years) and had 3 wonderful children. We both got laid off at the same time and took a move thru her company Deluxe Check Printers, to Kansas City. We moved during the big flood of 93 so it was easy to find homes that wouldn't flood!  I turned my handyman hobby into a remodeling business after we moved to KC.
We've enjoyed living in a KC suburb for the past 17 years. Our oldest son is out of college and married, our second is finishing up her masters in Psychology, my youngest is in his Junior year of college pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice.
As empty (almost) nesters we decided to take the motorcycle safety course and started riding motorcycles together and have been loving this new hobby for the past 2 years. We've even taken some week long trips to OK, AR, and WI with friends.
I've taken a few mission trips and helped fix-up homes for the less fortunate and found this to be tough but really fulfilling. Hope to do more after I retire.
The scariest thing I've ever done is jump out of a plane and parachute down with an instructor giving me directions over the helmet intercom. I made a perfect landing but you won't catch me up there again!

July 20, 1957 Police Detective Committed Relationship 2
Hello from the Valley of the Sun.  But it's a Dry Heat.  I somehow made it through high school and managed to get a degree from Concordia Univ. (any alumni out there?). Prior to that I was a Henry Ford CC dropout and joined the U.S. Army where I served this beloved country for 3 years.  I kept serving with a few police departments before retiring from the Westland PD in 2006.

Since I have no other job skills I signed on with the Maricopa County (Sheriff Joe) Attorney's Office as a detective.  My job is so secretive though i'm not sure what I do.  You'll have to ask me personally about my starter and subsequent marriages.  I should mention my darling daughters, Carlyn, 15, and Camryn, 11 (2nd marriage).

If my fiancee will still have me i'll be married to my 3rd wife on March 19th, 2011.  I don't see any RSVP's from the track team so I'll be sippin' and hangin' with  my beloved 'Music Man' cast alumni. (Font adjusted for age).

November 25, 1957 bookkeeping and payroll Married 1
I have been married to my husband John for 27 years.  We have one daughter Katy, 29, from my first marriage.  She is a Michigan State University graduate employed with Toshiba.  Katy married in 2007 - no children so far.  When asked to comment on the subject of kids, Katy says "Mom, for the time being, I really like my life just the way it is".  I guess I'll just have to wait and see on that one.

I work providing bookkeeping and payroll services for two businesses in Oakland county.  I really love the owners of both businesses.  They are such a pleasure to work with.

My husband and I enjoy traveling; particularly to the western part of the United States.  My favorite places are Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole and Yellowstone.  We never like to let more than a few years go by without visiting there.  We also love visiting Colorado where John's sister and family live.  We like to rent a rustic cabin just outside of Estes Park.  Although I really enjoy going places, I don't like to be away for more than about two weeks.  After that, I start to miss home.

The photo of myself, my mom and Katy was taken just shortly before my mom passed away.   It sure is amazing that 35 years have passed since we graduated from John Glenn.  I believe it serves as a reminder to appreciate and enjoy life everyday because it all goes by way too fast.

Public Health Nurse-WCDPH CSHCS Coordinator www.michigan.gov/cshcs Married 2

Hello Everyone,

It was good to see everyone at our 35th reunion. Everything was wonderful - the friends, food, music, fun and atmosphere.

For those who were unable to attend, I will give an update on some of what I have been doing the past 35 years.

My husband, Mark, a 1973 graduate of JGHS, and I will be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary soon.  

Our oldest daughter, Shannon is married and teaching out of state. She does a great job with the children. Her husband, Frank, is an Investment Banker.

My son, Jason is studying 3D animation at Eastern Michigan University. He has developed some great projects. Some are on Facebook.

Our pets include two dogs, three birds,  and a turtle.

The above website will explain the program I coordinate for Wayne County Department of Public Health - the Children's Special Health Care Services program. This program offers insurance coverage to individuals 0-20 yrs with chronic medical conditions. The program offers lifetime coverage to those with Hemophilia and Cystic Fibrosis. We work very closely with our families helping them navigate the health care system and achieve healthy outcomes. The program is based on medical need not income. However, those not on Medicaid or MIChild will have a payment agreement. It is a great program, if you know of anyone who can benefit give me a call at 734-727-7085. 

I keep busy with work, family, decorating for the holidays, reading, walking, bike riding, reading and water aerobics.

If you couldn't make it to this reunion, we hope you will make it next time.

Have a great next couple years,

Diane Rushlow, RN, BC, MA

We have been blessed with two beautiful daughters named Melanie and Nicole who are 29 and 28 respectively.  They have grown into wonderful young women and we are very proud of them.

I have been an office manager at U of M, an Interior Designer in West Bloomfield and a real estate agent since graduating.  Who knows what else the future holds?

I can't wait to see everybody.

I live in Brighton with my wonderful husband of 33 years.  We have twins sons, age 26, who are both chefs.  I have worked for the same group of attorneys for the past 31 years.   Wow, I guess longevity is my game.  We travel extensively and are counting the days (well, maybe years) until we can retire to Hawaii, our favorite annual destination. 

I really enjoying reading everyone's comments.  Come on people, post some more!
