Abingdon VA Married 2 I am married to Ken Croghan and we have a small farm in Abingdon Virginia. I am retired from teaching horse backriding. We now have cows instead of horses. We grow a huge garden each year. Lots of fruit too! My husband loves his boat so we spend as much time as we can on it. My daughters both live in the Denver area still. My older daughter Kim has one daughter Ella, and my younger daughter Karley has a daughter Kayla and a son Colton. My granddaughter also has a daughter Kiara and one on the way, so I am a great grandmother. Walking, biking, bowling, woodturning, and leatherwork. I spent 25 years in the insurance industry, then went back to college to get an equine sciences degree, then I taught horseback riding for 17 years. I've been to 48 states, only Alaska and Hawaii left to get to. The best trip my husband and I took was to England for a week long trip on a canal boat. He was the captain and my sisters and I opened and closed all the locks. My aunt and mother age 84 and 81 did all the cooking! My parents took us out of school to go to the National Western stock show. They thought we could learn more there than at school! Alaska and Hawaii 2017-06-21 19:49:18

Colorado Springs CO 2017-06-05 15:22:45

Sister Clare Carr, OSB

Sister Clare Carr’s scripture quotation, “See I am about to do a new thing” -Isaiah 43:19, reflects the sacred journey she underwent upon her selection as prioress elect for Benet Hill Monastery.  Her reverence for people and community is also reflected as she lives her vows of monastic life through following the Rule of St. Benedict.  Sister Clare says, “I believe in the call we all have to become creative and loving human beings- fully human and fully alive.”

Sister Clare began her vowed monastic life in 1974.  She is the oldest of five children and grew up in the Denver area from age eleven.  She received her Masters in Theological Studies from St. Meinrad’s School of Theology in St. Meinrad, Indiana, and her Masters in Counseling from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs.  She has worked at MDS Counseling Center— Maria Droste in Denver for the past ten years.  She loves people, listening to their life journey and the insightfulness and wisdom they share.  Much of Sister Clare’s gift is reverencing others as she journeys with them through pain, sorrow, loss, joy and new life.

The other “fun-loving side” to Sister Clare is conveyed in her red hair and bouncy personality.  She brings a sense of delight and humor to everyone she encounters and in everything she does.  A favorite with youth, she has served as youth director for parishes in the Lakewood/Denver area and Holy Trinity here in Colorado Springs.  Closer to home, she directed Benet Hill Center, the monastery’s vocations program and co-directed Benet Pines Retreat Center.  Never afraid to ask the tough, challenging questions, she has often been heard on the phone listening to a distraught counselee or helping someone in need find resources.

As she speaks about her love relationship with God, Sister Clare says it is “the most certain relationship in my life” and I found that this love relationship is to be lived out through the Rule of Benedict with this beautiful monastic community. Living obedience, poverty, chastity, stability and conversion of life” are ways of expressing her love relationship with God.  Sister Clare also nurtures herself through nature and gardening—seeing the “beauty that surrounds us in creation.”  She loves to hike and used to run thirty miles per week.

Sister Clare was installed as Prioress, June 2011, “I know my plans for you; they are plans for peace and not disaster, to give you a future with hope.” As current prioress, Sister Clare focuses on supporting and implementing the Direction Statements of the community.  She does this in conjunction with the monastic council as they look to fulfilling their dreams as community.  Sister Clare will plan for increased housing for the sisters and sustainability in all areas.  She also hopes to work with the community as they pursue ongoing vocation and formation work to increase membership in the community.  She has a vision of new vowed membership and other creative forms of membership.  She will reach out to younger populations and involve them more in understanding the call to monastic life.  We promise to pray for all your concerns and intentions, especially in this time and history we all share.

Boulder CO Married 3 I've been in Boulder for a long time. I met my husband in the dorm in 1967 and we are celebrating our 45th in August. We have 3 kids, ages 35, 30 & 27. We owned a printing company for 20 years in Boulder and after we sold it, I went back to CU to (finally) get my degree. I finished with a business major and got my masters in tax. I've been a CPA specializing in small business & tax preparation for 19 years and I work for myself. My husband and daughter work for our business too. Son & daughter live in Denver, our youngest daughter lives in Boulder married to a great guy from New Zealand - she is back at CU getting her masters in tax and studying for CPA exam. She works for me part time. No grandchildren yet. We enjoy our kids and like to go to Cape Cod (Massachusetts) and we enjoy lots that Boulder has to offer. Love going to Rockies games and of course love the Broncos. CPA - late bloomer - went back to CU and got my degree in my mid-40's! Never too old to reinvent yourself. My Edsel burning up in the parking lot at the end of senior year & the best part was that Patti Jubrias and I were ditching school (there was probably someone else with us, like maybe Joyce Holmes.) When I got to choir, Mr. Dalton had the class sing "there'll be a hot time in the old town tonight." Parents not happy - not easy to find a replacement seat for an Edsel! Also, football games, drill team, deafening basketball games in the gym, the cheerleaders doing their fabulous gymnastics down the length of the gym floor. I loved it all - especially my girlfriends - Polly, Judy R, Joyce, Patti, Marla, Anne L. to name just a few! Lastly, being a member of the singing group The Sodbusters - yes we really did exist!! You other members know who you are! Dare I say drinking beer? Going to Coors Brewery with our pathetically obvious fake id's? All the teachers and coaches - sitting next to Candy in Mr. Mahaffey's French class. We weren't that close in high school, but we went to CU together, lived in the same dorm complex and became very close friends for the next 40 years. But how lucky were we all???? 2017-06-05 15:06:08

Littleton CO Married 3 Living in Littleton since 1989, married 38 years to Linda, a retired School Administrator. I retired from banking in 2014, the last 16 years were with Colorado Business Bank. Life is good. My children are Cameron, Courtney, and Lindsey. Courtney and Lindsey were star athletes at Chatfield High. Courtney was Jeffco 5A MVP in Track and Lindsey was All State Colorado in Soccer and played for Univ Nebraska. In total I have 5 grandchildren, Casey, Walker, Gwyn, Sheamus, and Declan. Also 2 very newer great grandchildren to Casey. Running, fly fishing, hunting, and wildlife/sportsmen advocacy. Beyond high school I ran winter track one year at Western State, but college, girls, and just having fun won out. Outside of college I ran for fun the next 4 decades, and for a while did four marathons. My entire working career I served on various non profit boards, and a surprise to me was Colorado Non Profit Assn. awarding me their William Funk Award for Building Community in 1993. My last rodeo in non profits is likely Colorado Wildlife Federation where I am current President. I also now serve on Colorado Parks and Wildlife's "Sportsmen Roundtable". Wildlife advocacy is important, and includes occasionally testifying at the legislature on matters of public lands, wildlife/fisheries, and sportsmen matters. Commercial Banking with Colorado Business Bank. From the early 1970s to 2015 my banking career extended from Alaska back to Colorado. Banking small businesses was what I gravitated too, and my focus was closely held businesses of all sorts. Coach Cooper who became my inspiration in life. While high school Cross Country and Track was formative to me, one challenge in high school was teachers signing whether or not I would stay eligible. In college the 'light bulb' of learning and studies finally turned on and I became an excellent student attaining undergraduate and graduate degrees in Business. I give 100% credit for whatever success I realized in life to Coach Coop. On a whim Bob Moore, Terry Ten Eyck and I thought out a celebration for Coach Don Cooper, and in the early 2000s that vision materialized in a reunion of Coop athletes at Lakewood Country Club celebrating his 12 years coaching CC and Track at Wheat Ridge, and a couple more years he coached at Cherry Creek. The celebration of Coach Cooper was emotional, and for me certainly one of the best moments of my entire life. My best friend Russ Mallander and a few others of my friends in Russ's 1954 Chevy 'peeling out' on the concrete in front of the High School, plus doing a few 'donuts' on the infield. 2017-05-30 09:50:23

Dallas TX Married 2 Graduated from Univ. of Texas (71) and Baylor Dental School (74). Love practicing Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry. Enjoy traveling with my family. Married to Dr. Honor Franklin for 39 years. We have two children. A son Hahn,28, in commercial real estate and a daughter, Sullivan,25, who is in advertising. I moved the middle of my sophomore year from sunny California, where I was Class President, to WR in the dead of winter and I did not know a single person. I was miserable at first but I quickly made friends with so many great WR classmates. One of my best memories was of Donnie Stathis who befriended me immediately and since we were neighbors and I did not have a car (nor any idea how to drive in the snow and ice!), he picked me up in his truck before school everyday and we shared a lot of fun stories. I have great memories of my teammates in football and track when we won State Championships in both. This was no doubt due to the great coaching by Coach Red Coats and Coach Don Cooper who pushed us to the limits to be the best we could be because they believed in us. I will always have the utmost respect for both of them and I'm proud to have known such strong and fair role models. 2017-05-07 23:50:24

Kodiak AK Married 4 This is the first time I have had any contact with a high school reunion. I figured that after 50 years it might be interesting to see how life has been treating everyone. I have four children, my two daughters reside in Washington State, one son lives in California, for some reason, and the other lives in Alaska. I have six beautiful grandchildren, my four boys live in Washington and my two girls in Alaska. My current interest revolve around my grand children and our commercial salmon fishing operation. I have retired from 33 years of school teaching in various grades and villages on Kodiak Island. Our family spends the summers in Olga Bay on the south end of Kodiak Island commercial salmon fishing. Most of my high school memories are somewhat dimmed by the passing years. I do remember riding in a death trap Corvair that Andy Pietrafeso fishtailed through some poor homeowners yard, and various girls that I never had the courage to ask out. My to do list consists of building our new remote fish camp cabin, a second home in Manchester WA. and catching 200,000 lbs. of sockeye in a season. 2017-04-30 20:47:47
