4- Russell 21, who is a Compresser Operator for one of the largest oilfield companies here. Miranda More…(Randi) 20 in March, who is a pharmacy technician working on becoming a pharmacist. Haily 18 this past December, who completed her high school classes a year early and is concurrently enrolled in cosmetology full time and works at Marions, and Stepson Gage 8, who unfortunately I don't get to see much and is just a great kid.
Where else have you lived?
We moved from Duchesne to Roosevelt in 1989, then from the "hoods" of Roosevelt to the outskirts to a place called Hancock Cove in 1998.
I have a home on 11 acres 4 miles out of town.. I love it and I hope to be here forever.
Note to Todd: Could we please take off our senior pictures?? everyones hair is lop-sided... or is it our heads? JK
Still have family around Duchesne?
My Mom still lives in our house on the river, but I hope someday she'll move to Roosevelt. I'm not sure where Mike is right now, somewhere in Colorado I think. I have a younger brother Quinn who was born when I was 18 ( if you remember the scandal that he was my shameful un-wed pregnancy child that I hid... jeeze good ol' Duchesne!). He has moved to Twin Falls Idaho with his wife Amy. He's truly one of my favorite people in this world..
How often do you get back to Duchesne?
It's only 30 minutes away, but sorry to say.. not often! Sometimes when I'm passing through I'll drive up to the lake and hang out for a bit.
Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?
I talk to Shawn now and then, Kim Mezenen lives here so if I see her in the store we'll visit. I'm in touch with Parkburdick, Paige Meriwether, Debbie Lott Bellotti, Karin Farley. I see Wayne Hanberg about once a year and Rodney Rowley about once a month where I work. I've seen Karen Thompson, LeAnn Shepherd, Lana Malinski Nebeker, Danny Hayes, Kim Farnsworth, Rick Miller and his wife Heidi Wild, Russ Young(Pat and Jerry's), Jerry Sleight, Annette Getchell, Jamie Helms, Kerry Casey and a few others around... there's more, emmmm I'll think about it.
What did you do right after high school?
Married and was an Insurance agent there in Duchesne for 4.5 years. When we moved to Roosevelt I started a career in children,, had a daycare of all things for about 6 years. Roy worked overseas in the early 90's then he had his own little oilfield company and I was basically the bookkeeper. Then I started a cleaning service, did that for 10+ years.. That's a glorified term for "maid". My goal was to be able to raise my own kids. Daycare and cleaning allowed me to do just that. My second husband and I had an oilfield service company also, and I worked at an excevation company in the office. This past September I began at Mountain America CU. Now that my kids are all adults it's the perfect occupation for me..My intention is to become a Financial Service Rep and live happily ever after, hopefully with a retirement plan.. :)
What do you do now?
I work for Mountain America Federal Credit Union in Roosevelt.
Married? To who? When? How long?

What’s your favorite memory of Duchesne High?
Traveling assembly and Mr. Stott. Greenwoods class in general. I can't remember what he tought but we laughed allot. Drivers ed ! driving to Roosevelt for doughnuts and Coach Cowan teaching us how to slide on icy roads....
Least favorite memory?
It had to do with bra fittings for the entire drill team by Miss Condie and some sales lady .. Humiliating... NO Creepy..
I didn't even need a bra.....!
I wonder how she'd like to try that now.... arrgghhhh...
Being singled out by Mr. Dowell and his personal attack on cheerleaders (I think in Math class) one day. I got in trouble for calling him an ass..
What would we be surprised to know about you?
That there are no surprises! But... Am I the only one who didn't know Dewey Baum was a real person and still doesn't know who Joe Dyer is?
Oh yeah! I speek 5 languages,,, heeeeeyyyy...
Where did we come up with that stuff?
Do you have your own website you'd like us to see?
If I could do my life over..I would do it the same.
My only true success has been raising my kids, who have all turned out to be really great people, much wiser than I was at their ages, they really have their lives together and I'm pretty sure they all make more than me :).
