After graduating, went to MU for 2 years. Graduated from Boston U with a BA in Psychology. Escaped the craziness sometime during the Vietnam era, hitchhiked by myself across Canada and lived 3 yrs in the wilderness of beautiful British Columbia. Worked for the City of Portland, Maine as an art therapist at the Cumberland County Jail. Also for the Catholic Diocese as art teacher in a winter camping outward bound survival program for underprivileged children. Returned to KC and worked for 17 years as a commercial artist. Taught high school art at Shawnee Mission Northwest High School. For the last 15 years I've taught art to Seniors 65-95 years old at the Jewish Community Center of KC. It has been work I deeply love and I am inspired by my students every day. My hobby is studying Astrophysics, mainly online through the Great Courses. I am fascinated by learning about our Universe, although someday I hope to overcome the obstacle of being mathematically challenged!

What an interesting story Patty. I am impressed by your courage in traveling through Canada
It's so cool to find out about an entire career of someone that I remember from when we were just little girls.

Hi Mike! School memory: I remember playing at your house in grade school. I particularly remember your lovely mother, she made quite an impression on me! She was tall, attractive and had grey hair, soft spoken and kind, very intelligent, keenly interested in many subjects, and carried herself with class and sophistication. She passed away much too young, from Cancer I believe. Now I'm questioning if my memory is serving me well, sometimes I wonder?! In a box somewhere, I have a snapshot of you and I think Fritz Zeigler that I took with my Brownie camera on the Hartman playground in the 6th grade.

I'll be in town April 3 to the 9th. If it still works for you I'll be over at your mother's place on Friday at 11 AM. Looking forward to seeing you both. :-)

Hi Arlene! Hope you are well. What have you been up to? I always wondered if you ever pursued comedy or the dramatic arts. I have never forgotten your emulation of the characters from "Highlights Magazine." You were so funny and always made me laugh! I still remember from our Hartman days your impersonation of a house fly and "Numb-Noodle-Not-so!
