Illinois ConnectionIn 1969 I began my career as an elementary school teacher in Prophetstown, IL; I retired in 2002. I studied for my Master's Degree at the Quad-City Graduate Center, in Rock Island, and on the Western Illinois University campus in Macomb, until graduation in 1974. I lived 25 years in Prophetstown and moved to Morrison in 1994. I am a reenactor of the 1860's at Girl Scout events and Heritage Canyon in Fulton, portraying the school teacher; I held "Pioneer Day Camp" there in the past.
Biographical and Professional InformationI own and publish a dynamic and successful internet newspaper: "thecity1.com" Morrison Online. In 2011, I edited and published an 80-page commemorative book to highlight the history of General Electric in Morrison: ''General Electric Appliance Control Department, A Legacy Beyond 61 Years, June 1949 to September 2010''.
