I grew up in Chicago, but I’ve lived in Minneapolis longer than most natives. My husband David and I were married for 51+ years. I have 3 grown sons and 2 grandsons. I had a late-life career as a minister, ordained in 1990 by the United Church of Christ, and served churches in St. Paul, Wayzata, and North Minneapolis. I’ve been retired for 8 years, but still preach and do weddings and funerals.
