Where do you live?
How long have you lived in Fluvanna? What brought you here?
I’ve lived here for 21 years. Before I moved here I was living in Charlottesville. I found I wanted to get out of the city and find a better place to live the rest of my life. Lake Monticello was a place to settle in for real.
Tell us about your work.
I retired in 2000 after 32 years at the University of Virginia. For 10 or 12 of those years I worked in the office of the dean of arts and sciences. Then I was the assistant to the dean of continuing education. After that I worked in the Rotunda as the secretary of the vice president of development, who is the fundraiser for the university.
Tell us about your family.
I’m so proud of my two sons, two daughters-in-law, five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. One of my sons lives in the Lake and the other is about 20 miles south of Charlottesville. We get together a lot for family birthdays and special holidays. I stay in close touch with both of my sons, who mean everything in the world to me. It’s been such a wonderful blessing for me to have lived long enough to see my sons become grandparents. And then, just to put the cherry on top, to live long enough to see my grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
