I was one of the late comers to Miles City. Born in Wilmington, Del., started 1st grade in Birmingham, Alabama, moved back to Delaware, then to Richmond and then Hampton VA, until TAHDAH I moved with my family in the middle of a January 1964 blizzard to Miles City. My dad was the the personnel chief for the VA Hospital. I was a sophomore. I had an older brother John who was a junior and a brother and sister in junior high. I was pretty active in high school at CCHS and graduated 1966. I graduated MSU in 1970 and moved to Dallas, TX, while my husband attended SMU law school. We moved to Houston, TX in August 1974, and I sort of reside in the area today. (He and I divorced after 30 years of marriage, I married in 2001 a wonderful man who lived about 45 miles NW of Houston, where I now work, but then we bought a house an additional 50 miles from Houston, closer to Bryan-College Station at Lake Somerville). I spend my time on the road it seems either going to work or into the Houston for my doctoral work. Typically I drive 1 hour in and 1 hour back each day unless I stay in our much bigger home near my job. My husband has been retired for about 4 years and he loves the lake house. Soooo, if I want to have a relationship with him I need to spend some time with him.
My family is fairly spread out. My sis Peggy married Mike Wohlgenant of Kinsey and they live in Raleigh, NC., where Mike is a professor at NC State; my brother John is in Hawaii where he manages a resort on the garden island which I cannot spell; and my brother George owns several businesses in Polson MT, including a convenience store, etc.
Although not originally from Montana we quickly became big advocates for the state. My sis and I both graduated from MSU-Bozeman, our two brothers from U of M-Missoula. Our Dad taught for a while at Carroll College in Helena when they lived there when I was in college.
All of us love Miles City and appreciate how we were treated while there.
