Spouse: Lee Manfred
2014 Reunion News: Lee and I have spent our total 43 years of married life living in Anchorage, Alaska.
Update Aug 25, 2009
Lee is retired and we are both well and happy. I work as Health Services Nursing Supervisor and Community health Nurse at same employer past 18 plus years (Hope Community Services) in Anchorage, Alaska. We have been married 38 years (39 in Feb of 2010) and are happy to be visiting our parents again this year who are 95, 89 and 83! Oh, to be as positive, respectful, non-fearing, and tenacious at their ages.
The picture below is of our grandsons Josh and Aidan, our daughter Kimberly, granddaughter Morgan,and our daughter Deborah, together in Anchorage in cold and snowy February of 2007. Next picture is Grandma Sandi (Sandi Sheneman Manfred), sharing icecream with her 3 grandchildren. We are so proud of our daughters and our wonderful and talented teenaged grand children.
Past highlights: We continue to visit family in Idaho and Washington in August and September every year. This Christmas our daughters and our grandchildren, aged 8, 9, and 10 spent the time together in Anchorage. We attended the 90th birthday of my mother-in-law in Spokane in January of 2004 and hope to stay as active and feisty as she is.
Future Plans: More of the same, God willing. I continue to work as a Certified Developmental Disabilities RN and plan to continue working because I love the work I do. I received the Extraordinary /Contribution Award in 2004 for building community for all.
