Part way through my teaching career I became very interested in computers and entered Schoolcraft College taking night courses in numerous computer programming languages. I graduated with an Associate's Degree in Computer Systems but decided to remain an art teacher and put my computer skills to use in my classroom. I developed one of the first computer graphics courses for middle school art students in the metropolitan Detroit area and was very involved in the implementation of computers in the school system by serving on many of the decision making committees.
In my third year at Wayne State I met my husband, Gary Boyll,
also in the Art Education and Fine Arts department there.
We married in 1962 but later divorced
in 1999. I have two children, my
daughter, Kelly, and her family, who live in the Milford area and my
Aaron, and his family who currently reside in Fort Collins, Colorado. I have three grandchildren, two grand
daughters eight and five and one grandson, age 6.
Since retiring I have traveled in the Caribbean, Mexico, England, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Switzerland. I've also seen much of the United States. When I'm not traveling I've volunteered at the Detroit Institute of Arts and at the Brighton Public Library. I also spend a lot of time with my grand children.
I am looking forward to seeing people I have lost contact with
years. I've already re-established
several old friendships. Hope to
see you at the reunion in June!
