Ralph and I have been married for 47 years. We
are fortunate to have a strong and loving relationship. We have lived in the same home for 42 years just South of Weber State in an area known as Shadow Valley.

Ralph has spent the past 52 years as a Barber at the Cellar Barber Shop. A few weeks ago he and Jim, his partner, were featured on the front page of the Standard Examiner. The reporter was quite taken by the fact that they have worked side by side for all those years and never had an argument between them, nor their patrons.

I retired from my job as Weber County Treasurer in the first part of my 15th year, due to illness.
I loved that job. I handled 2.8 billion dollars while I was in office. I give credit to the wonderful and dedicated staff for the many awards we received in recognition of our Standards and Practices and accuracy. Because of them, I received the Outstanding County Treasurer in United States. At that time there were 4000 county treasurers.

I had the opportunity to serve on the State Money Management Council for two four year terms. To be on the Council you are nominated by the Governor and ratified by the Senate. The five member board monitors all Utah banks that invest public monies.

I have been active in the Republican Party since 1968, which lead to 42 years as a District Chair. I was elected to serve four years with State Chairman Rob Bishop, as the State Secretary. In 2000, I was recognized by the National Republican Party as County Official of the Year.

School Story:

I really enjoyed my years at Ogden High and value the friendships I made. I enjoyed being a Tigerette and appreciate all the other Tigerettes who practiced for long hours on our routines. Marching in the parades with the OHS Band was quite a thrill. In those days we had a very large and very good band, and I think our routines were pretty neat. To you great gals, thanks for all the input and help in making our senior year so much fun.

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be in the school plays all three years. That was a blast, hope I can live as long as Portia Douglas. I learned how to speak in a public setting and the mechanics of giving a speech. I have used her training throughout my adult life.
