I am a retired teacher-librarian. Reading and books are my first love, although playing and listening to many types of music is my second love. I have been a bell ringer for Bells of the Desert since it was founded and have been in my church bell choir for over 20 years. I love the challenge and different types of music that we ring in BotD. I also enjoy sewing, working in my flower garden, and walking along the beautiful Columbia River. My husband and I love to travel and visit with our two children and grandchildren.
