I am living in Duncan, Az after spending 10 years in Reserve, NM. I lived in Tucson till 1979 when I moved to WA state to remarry but only stayed a year as I missed seeing the sun. Guess you could call me a Desert Rat and Country Bumpkin of both I am proud.
In 1959 I made a big mistake and married Jim Tate, divorced in 1979. 1979 I married Chester Brown who died in 2002. I have two sons from first marriage, Brent Tate who lives in Duncan and Jay Tate who lives in Tucson. Have three grandchildren. In 2003 I had a heart attack with a by pass plus complications. Only the good die young and I'm still here.
I worked over 20 years for TUSD. Was also an advocate for battered families in NM. Was involved in politics and 4-H leader.
Raise Boston Terriers. Canoeing down the Gila when there is water in it! Make jewelry out of antlers. Still messing with equines.
Had taken in a baby fox that a friend found on the road. The day I was taking it out to return it to the wild I got busted by the Fish and Game. Of course I had to go to court. Would I do it again, you bet, a baby in need.
