I was married on August 19, 1961. (Note the date). After which, my husband Bill and I moved to St Louis, MO where he completed his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. We moved to Clintonville, WI in 1965 where he started his practice. We had four children; three boys and one girl. I worked with Bill in his chiropractic office for almost the entire 40 years we were in practice. He suffered a stroke in 2002 and another in 2003 that left his left hand paralyzed. So since then, our life has changed. Most of my life is centered around some care of him. Although he can walk with a cane, it is limited. I am well, healthy and enjoy flower gardening, playing bridge, cooking and crafts. We have 6 grandchildren. While most live several hours away, the youngest lives here in town and we get to spend at least one day a week with her. I am sorry to miss the class reunion, but with our 50th wedding anniversary this weekend, we are celebrating with the entire family.

If you remember, I did not graduate with the class because I lacked 2 credits. I took a correspondence course with UW Madison in Latin and scored an ‘A’ (much to my father’s amazement). (He expected me to work on a chain gang somewhere). I suspect that there were a number of your parents who felt the same way about me! After getting my diploma, I was admitted to Menlo College in California and left Neenah in June 1962 for the San Francisco area. Menlo was considered the backdoor to Stanford for all the kids whose parents had enough money to send them there and who had jacked around in high school like I did. This was a great place for me with lots of personal attention and motivation. I managed to graduate in ’64 and transfer to the University of the Pacific in Stockton California. UOP was another great place for me with again lots of attention. I took two classes in Political Science with three other students. Not many hiding places in those classes. Graduation came in June 1966 and then on to the Army – the only branch of the military that would take me into Officer Candidate School. I did my training at Fort Knox, was commissioned in May 1967 as an Armor 2d Lt. and stationed at Fort Carson (Colorado Springs) in an infantry company. Despite this gross error in assignments, (The object of being an Armor officer is that you do not walk like the infantry does.) it turned out to be a wonderful experience mainly because we had a great battalion commander. In February 1968, I went skiing one Sunday, went to a bar afterward and over beer and brats met a very nice young woman who had also been skiing. We got along very well and after a month, I asked her to marry me and in June we had a military wedding with all the bells and whistles including crossed swords on the way out of the church. 43 years later she still puts up with me and I am the lucky one of the marriage. She is a RN who has had a career in public health and, since 1995, as head of her own consulting company specializing in compliance issues in Medicare HMOs. I left the service in May 1969 and got a sales job with Crown Zellerback Paper Corp in Portland, OR. After two years I realized that I did not like selling toilet paper door to door and left the company to apply to law school. I was accepted by McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, CA and started in September 1972. In my final year our son Chris was placed with us and we adopted him in June 1976. (Sarah came along in 1978.) After four years, I graduated in 1976 and after passing the bar exam was offered a position with the school. As part of my duties, I supervised a clinical program where students practiced administrative law in such things as unemployment insurance appeals. This was very satisfying to me and started me on my career path in clinical legal education. After three years I transferred to the school’s main clinic which involved general practice areas with an emphasis on family law. After fourteen years, I left McGeorge to follow my wife to a new position in Southern California. In 1991, I began teaching at Western State University College of Law as well as having my own private in 2002. Since ’02, I have been the Director of Clinical Education at WSU until this month when I retired. In 2002, we bought a home in a small town south of Palm Springs, called Borrego Springs. It is mostly a snow bird community with 3000 full time and 10,000 in season (Oct – May). After ripping out just about everything, we rebuilt the house to our liking and it has become our retirement home. It sits next to a golf course, so I can go out every day and dig up the grounds with what is laughingly called my golf game. So while retirement was supposed to be sitting, reading, drinking gin & tonics and golf, etc., that changed a bit when in October our daughter gave birth to our first grandson, Jason Brian Roberts. Because Sarah has a number of problems, she is unable to care for Jason so we have taken on that responsibility and will adopt him in the fall. He’s an easy child and we love taking care of him. Makes one young all over again. I am looking forward to the reunion, renewing old acquaintances and sharing memories.

By God’s grace; life has created accomplishments to share. The most precious gifts to witness are our three adult children (Jack Bogrand and I are their parents). Each of them is healthy, has an education, work, and loves their lives. We’re blessed with grandchildren; three year-old identical twin girls and an 18 month-old girl in the same family, who I see routinely. I worked as a Registered Nurse in a variety of positions, mostly full-time for over 35 years; I retired and left MN for NC when Bill Cogger and I were married in 2002. My labors of love are writing (I’ve had one article published), painting with watercolors or acrylics, and spiritual companioning. I’m a certified spiritual director and have been a member of Spiritual Directors International for over 15 years. In October of 2010, I made an interfaith (Jewish, Islamic, Christian) pilgrimage to Israel and Palestine with 40 other pilgrims from around the world. One of our most moving moments was planting an olive tree; singing Shalom, Shalaam, Peace, near Bethlehem, as a shepherd and his sheep came from the hills into the field.

So hard to believe it has been 50 years! Many joys...Many sorrows...and isn't this what unites us, after all these years? After H.S., I spend my first year in the Holy Spirit Convent (Techny, IL). After that I
attended St. Louis University, and graduated from Marquette University. I married to Tom Long, we
began our life together in Milwaukee, where our first son was born. We later moved to Appleton, joining both of our extended families, and continuing to raise two more sons. My family has been my top priority. In the early years, raising our three sons; in the later years, my husband whelming task of caregivers for my Mother (with dementia) and other illnesses, and for my younger sister who was diagnosed with M.S., 25 years ago. We cared for them together in their house until April 14 of this year, when my sister passed away from leukemia. I thank God for the joys and the sorrows.
They all helped to make me who I am.

I am still a Die Hard Cub Fan and was referred to as "Mr. Cub" by my students. When the Cubs do something newsworthy the press often catches up with me for my views. My "Cub Shrine" has been in the papers and on TV many times. In fact, WGN got into the act and talked about my "museum" on TV. We've been going to spring training every March in Mesa, AZ for the last 25 years. I've been a Packer season ticket holder for 50+ years and I enjoy going to WARM Packer games. We became grandparents of two beautiful granddaughters, first in 2007, and most recently on April 18 of this year.
