2014 Reunion News: MY husband Louis P Kacho and I did not make it on a mission for our church because he passed away March 1st 2005 at the age of 59. We had been married 36 plus years. After 3 years trying to find myself and getting through the grieving period I started to be social again. I met Tom Ritchie at a singles dance at our church and we married on June 7 2008. He works in a middle school with physically handicap youth in Olympia WA. We bought a place in the country environment of Rochester WA about a year ago. Life has been tough at times but rewarding too. I retired from working at Walmart in 2007.Still enjoy painting and other types of art work. Most of the time in good health. Had a small heart attack last Oct. But during fine now.
Louis and I had hoped to go to the reunion in 2004 but that July he took real sick. I hope Tom and I can make it to this one ,however, he will start school again in Sept. so I may have to come alone. I am grateful for all my ups and downs for they make me who I am (STRONG).
