Before, during, and after college I worked for various Tribes and Tribal organizations in the Mason/Thurston area primarily in the area of Social Services. I was fortunate enough to travel to a good number of exciting places and know the interior of airports and meeting rooms in all of them.

I worked after graduation and married a year later. He was in the Navy stationed on the West Coast. I have three sons from that marriage. I later married again and was fortunate to have a daughter and another son. I then really got smart and stayed single and not pregnant. The kids are ages: 43, 42, 40, 32 and 31. Also, I have 11 grandkids and of course they all are very smart and good-looking.

On my agenda next is working with clay and cement. I love making things with my hands but never took classes to learn the techniques. I like to make Dinosaurs and want to make some that are two to three feet high! Now’s the time before I get old, I figure that I have 30 more years left. LIFE IS GOOD, not easy, never boring, but it is what you make it.
I hope everyone has a great time at the reunion. GO RAMS!

After that my accordion activities faded out (temporarily) as I focused on school and getting a good job. To that end, I was very fortunate to have a part time job in the U of W computer center while going to school.
One day, I realized computing was the wave of the future so I abandoned
the idea of being a math teacher and decided to major in computer
science. After receiving my bachelor’s degree, I moved to

At the age of 55, I felt a strong need to resume playing the accordion full time so I retired from B of A. Thank heaven the economy was looking good then or else I may not have had the courage to retire early. I have now been a professional accordionist for ten years and am very busy. There is always more to learn and plenty to do.
Since all I have talked about is career, you may get the idea this is my main priority. As a matter of fact, it is. This explains why I am still single and don't really see any way out of that situation at the present time. I do appreciate family and friends and without them, I don't know if I could survive. Maybe I could, but I hope I don't have to find out. I have a website: www.bonniebirch.com.

Bettejean Briggs… Mrs. VanWeerthuizen
In August of 1968 I moved to Smithers,
I did a lot of substitute teaching plus ran a sewing business out of my home while the children were young. When the children were in school full time I returned to teaching. Over the years I managed to teach every grade from fourth through twelfth and on many different subjects, but primarily English and Special Education.
I retired from teaching in June of 1998 and my first grandchild was born in July of 1998. I now have six grandchildren - three grandsons and three granddaughters.
Since my retirement I have done a lot of substitute teaching as well as quilting and teaching of quilting. In addition I breed and show golden retrievers. Life is so busy I am not quite sure how I found time to work fulltime.
After graduating from Ingraham I took a course in keypunching. This was part of the beginning of what is known today as computers. I then worked at Boeing as a keypunch operator for four years followed by Kelly Girls (now ‘Temporary Services’).
On Dec. 29, 1962, I married Larry Knudsen. We have been married for 43 years and have three children (Jeff, Lori and Kathy). And we now have five grandchildren.

I met Norm Warsinske hanging up Christmas lights in the U District in 1982 and was very gently swept off my feet. Norm retired after 25 years as co-owner of the interior design store, Miller-Pollard in 1983. We’ve been very happily married since 1984.

Paulette L. Broesch… Mrs. P. Druxman
I had one year of college and then married. We had two children – one daughter and one son. The marriage lasted 19 years. I never remarried.
I have always worked – first in retail jewelry for two years and then I was with Nordstrom’s in sales with fine jewelry. I’ve now been with communications for five years so I don’t have to be on my feet all day long. Nice.
The worse thing that ever happened to me is when my daughter died in Dec. 2005. But I enjoy my son and his wife’s two little ones. These granddaughters are darling – ages three years and 11 months. Caring for them is tops on my list of enjoyment.
I also love to get outside to garden, take walks and hike. Plus my summer cabin in Chelan is a wonderful place for leisure where I go with family several times each summer.

Fred's first marriage was to Mary and they had a son, Michael. The marriage lasted 12 years. He was then a single parent for 12+ years raising Michael. Fred married again and then divorced after 12 years. He is now single.
In 1999, Fred fell off a roof while working and crushed both heels, plus broke both ankles. This accounts for some arthritis problems nowadays. Fred now is a traveling salesman and keeps busy seeing the country.
Michael was a stock broker before he went to law school. Michael will

Barbara A. Burrill… Mrs. Jim R. Elder
After graduating IHS I worked at the Telephone Company for six years. I then entered WWSC where I graduated in December '71.
On April 7,
1972 I met my future husband (Jim Elder) and one year and one week
later we were married. Jim was attending the UW in their Orthodontic Department
and upon graduation we moved to
We have three children (two boys and a girl) who are now 30, 28, and 26. Our oldest is in the computer field and lives in Bothell; our 28 year old son was married three years ago and lives in Oregon' and our 26 year old daughter lives in San Diego and will be married July 2007. No grandchildren yet - we aren't old enough.
Since I was lucky enough not to have to work, I spent my spare time volunteering. While the kids were in school I worked in the PTA eventually becoming its President. After all our children moved beyond grade school I began volunteering at our local hospital and eventually became President of the Auxiliary. I am currently volunteering as a buyer for our three gift shops, something I truly enjoy.
Jim has now retired and we are free to pursue our hobby of traveling where and
whenever we want. In the last 18 months we have traveled to
We also enjoy skiing (downhill and cross country) at Whistler and are looking forward to the 2010 Winter Olympics because we plan to be there. Summers find us water skiing. Life is very full when you are retired--we have a hard time remembering which day of the week it is--I highly recommend it!!!

In 1964 my dad and I built his 28' cabin cruiser, which we both enjoyed for years.
As for jobs, at first I did some jobs here and there, then worked for Boeing for five years the last half of the 60's. Then I worked for Sundstrand Data Control for almost 25 years. Really enjoyed working for Sundstrand. When they were bought out I worked for JLT Manufacturing for about ten years. Due to a bad car accident early in 2006, I am not working right now.
I've always enjoyed, as a hobby, restoring old cars and even doing some drag racing. I have restored four of my own cars - all Fords. In '67 & '68, Ray Hadford, from our class, and I received the National record for "Street eliminator" with his car, a '57 Chevy that we both worked on. I still enjoy attending the yearly national meets for restored Fords.

In June of 1966 I started a career with the IBM Corporation that lasted thirty years. Initially, I was employed as a Software Engineer working on the design of midrange operating systems and software applications designed for various vertical markets. With this experience behind me I traded my developer experience for a position within the marketing group at IBM. This was a very exciting and fulfilling experience for me as I was fortunate enough to assist in the development and management of a small business marketing and manufacturing unit that later became a division within IBM.
from IBM in 1996 I moved to
From a personal standpoint, I have a son, Aaron, and two grandchildren, Harrison – 3 years old and Grace – 3 months old, both of whom I love dearly. I understand now how fulfilling grandchildren can be.

Four years later I "disappeared" into grad school for a Ph.D. studying root weevils in Pacific NW. Am still trying to escape (no truth to the rumor that the weevils ate me). Then it was back to EPA for a stint as IPM Coordinator for WA, OR, ID and AK; then back as Water Quality Liaison to EPA.; and, finally just recently returned to WSU Snohomish County Extension where I am very happily setting about to change how we manage pests in the Pacific NW.

I continued to work for Metro and in 1978 the marriage fell apart, with a divorce to follow. Something about trying to raise some other guy’s kids just wasn’t my cup ‘o tea, especially when their mother was not at all supportive in that regard.

For fun, my wife makes quilts and wall hangings while I go prospecting for gold. Barbara has far more quilts than I have gold nuggets, but I find the adventure of gold prospecting fascinating. Though she may have more quilts, I have more mining equipment and a big truck in which to haul it.
Last year I was diagnosed with colon cancer, had a major chunk of my digestive tract removed, spent six weeks healing up, underwent 24 weeks of chemotherapy, and then cooled my heels for seven months, seeing if the treatment worked. In March I found out that there were two lymph nodes still involved, so it’s off on another adventure, this time at $8,000 an injection. Hopefully, this will nail the nasty buggers once and for all, but nothing is certain in this world. So far I feel okay, and thank God for adequate health insurance and a generous sick leave policy.
At this point, I’m still fighting the good fight, and if things go well, I’ll be out there on some stream this summer, looking for that elusive yellow metal. It’s been a good life, and I plan on enjoying it, day by day, for a good long time.

Hello Ram's Fans - Here's a question that I'll bet almost NEVER comes up anywhere--What ever happened to Randy Ginsberg? For anyone who did not respond "who cares?" I'll be as brief as possible.
Probably the last time most of us saw each other, I was headed off to the U of W, where I majored in Finance, was a member of Beta Theta Pi, played three years of Varsity Baseball and managed to graduate in only 4-2/3 years (pretty much without honors).

It has always amazed me, but two guys from our Ingraham class flew for TWA at the same time. Mac Christensen was there before me and left after I left. Small world! We really didn't even know each other in school but became good friends at TWA.
While I have been retired for a little over three years--except for my new career in art (metal work), Eleanor continues her work in Community Affairs at LAX, where she has been for 30 years plus her charity work for Children's Hospital.
I must say that I don't miss flying much--I really never fully returned to work after the Sept. 11 affairs, and, anyway, I have more stories to tell than I will ever have grandchildren to tell them to.
I now spend too
much time on golf courses to explain my poor handicap and not enough time on
tennis courts--which explains my weak backhand. Thankfully,
both Eleanor and I are in very good health so we continue to
travel at every opportunity. I really enjoy revisiting all of the foreign
cities that I couldn't spend much time in when I was flying - but it was
sure a lot better when somebody else was paying for the hotels. We cruise
often, both blue water and river boating, and have spent considerable time
on the French Riviera--usually for the Monaco Grand Prix and Cannes Film Festival with

We also have two grand-dogs and two grand-cats, although the dogs are always happier to see us than the cats.

I have had a good and successful life. In the beginning I lived on a farm with my family and raised four children - two sons and two daughters. We raised many animals including New England Red chickens. My children helped with all the animals and the showing of some at 4-H shows.
I was a 4-H leader for nine years. I also raced horses. All of this was while I was a real estate broker and taught real estate classes to those wishing to obtain their licenses.
After enough of real estate I took up managing a convenience store which is really exciting. I have quite enjoyed collecting many tales about this work, the farming and the children and plan on writing a book in "retirement" someday.
My three grandchildren are fun and we all are looking forward to another birth in December of another grandchild - which just may be twins. There is quite a history of twins in my family. This will be very exciting. I will really sing then, something I have always enjoyed doing. I have never given up singing.

The neighborhood near Finn Hill was full of soccer coaches, players and want-to-be soccer players. I got involved with youth soccer coaching (which led to being one of the coaches for the first women's soccer team in Washington State),
coaching men’s teams and playing on a men's team for 20 years. What a great sport for exercise and conditioning!
In 1976 my wife and I called it quits and got a divorce. We are friends to this day, which has been good for our son Rob.
of 1979 I quit my job at Systi-matic and received a job at Flow International,

The company, Chukar Industries, got a slow start due to the Gulf War but by 1997 we were designing, manufacturing and selling at a $10 million a year rate. A larger company bought Chukar Industries from me in 1997. I then formed International Waterjet Parts which produces replacement parts for all waterjet manufacturers worldwide. In 2000 I sold IWP to my general manager and went off to play golf, or at least chase the little white ball around, and do some salt water fishing.

In 2004 a company bought IWP from the person to whom I had sold. They asked me to come back on contract for five years to help grow the company. So...

Its body is painted black with a fluorescent pink, baby blue and some silver flame job on front. Another is a 1934 Chevy 4-door sedan with a 1966 Chevy Nova gear through it. It is painted a "1990 Toyota Blood Red" with a blue, silver and pink flame job on front. And the third is a 1936 Chevy pick-up truck with a '68 Camarro running gear. This is painted emerald green with diamond dust and has lavender, yellow and red flaming.
