Q: Did you enjoy school?
A: Oh, I loved school… very much.
Q: What kind of student were you?
A: Well, I always worked really hard, I had to study a lot to get good grades, I… um… school always came first, I got my work done first, I always had a lot of… pretty big social life amongst friends but I always did my work first then… went out.
Q: What would you do for fun?
A: Oh, we use to do a lot of stuff, we would go rollerskating, ice skating, we’d camp out, ‘course… years ago it was easier to camp out in the backyard. There weren’t crazy people around you had to worry about… not so many animals, wild animals. We’d have parties at other people’s houses, and, um… we also had once a week there was a dance at the school, we’d go what they’d call a sacops.
Q: How would your classmates remember you?
A: They probably remember me as being rather quiet, friendly to everybody, and a good organizer of work and clubs at school. I started a medical careers club when I was a senior in high school.
Q: Are you still friends from anyone in that time of your life?
A: Yes I am, my one best friend that I went to high school with her, she was my roommate in college, and we still… even though she lives in Arizona.
Q: What are your best memories of grade school, high school, college, graduate school?
A: Uh… the best memories were just the experience itself, getting to do all these different things. Um… in nursing, I think one of the best experiences I had was when we got to go to the homes and deliver the babies, and it was during the bad, bad winter of, I think it was… let’s see… sixty-seven, sixty-six? That was a real trying experience but it was very interesting.
Q: Was there a teacher or teachers that had a particularly strong influence on your life?
A: Yes, Mr. John Hendricks was my bio teacher in high school, and if I… if it wasn’t for him encouraging me and telling me even though I had to study hard that I would make it, I would not be… had gone through nursing like I did, and I ended up being best friends with him and were still best friends on uh… adult Facebook, and I use to babysit for his kids when I was… when I would come home from college and nursing school.
Q: Do you have any favorite stories from school?
A: No, I just remember in Mr. Hendricks’ class, when he brought in this huge, it must have been about fifteen feet, um… it was one of those snakes… I’m saying a Boa Constrictor but it wasn’t, that wasn’t what it was because those I think are… deadly, but I’m not sure. Anyways it was a huge, huge, yellow snake… and everyone thought they were gonna die for sure and we had to hold it and pass it around the classroom to feel the undulation of the body, and the thing was fine he didn’t bother us but we were all scared to death that we were gonna get bit.
Q: Alright, thanks for letting me interview you.A: You’re welcome.
It’s the year 1966, and the snow is deep. It is a terrible winter. Nurses are called to a house for an emergency.
“We’re here to help!”
“Please clear the kitchen table!”These nurses were called to a house with a mother who was going in labor. They needed the nurses help to deliver the baby right now, because they were unable to get the mother to the hospital to deliver the baby in time. My mother was one of these nurses, and she was with her other nurse friends coming over to deliver the baby. They didn’t have to bring anything along with them, since all they needed were a table and their hands. The mother would not have any painkillers, so she would just have to go through the pain. It was hard to deliver the baby in the middle of the winter inside of someone’s house, but it had to be done. If they hadn’t come to deliver the baby at the house, the baby could have died. Thanks to my mother and her group of nurses, one more life was brought into this world, unharmed.
This is what the winter that the nurses had to go through probably looked like.
Biggest Snake in the World
This snake may not be as big as the one from my mother's class, but it sure sounded this big!
My mother's profession is nursing, and she loves it more than anything.
