They lived their early married life in Trinity, Texas and Clarksville, Ohio before moving to Ardmore in 1996.
Together for 43 years, married for 37 of those years, her happiest times were spent outdoors with her family. They have camped, skied, hiked, climbed, rafted, explored and gotten lost from coast to coast. They have visited all 50 states and a few foreign countries and most of those were spent in a tent with their three kids by their side. Some of the most memorable times were being covered in snow in the Teton Mountains of Wyoming to hurricane force rains and wind on a Lake Erie Island and everything in between.
