Thelma "Tee" Taylor
UPDATE: JUNE, 2011
I'm back in my home in Tucson and finally retired. Both of my sons, three grandchildren, and one great-grandchild (now 5)live in Tucson.
I have dogs and cats that keep me company and make me get some exercise. It is a gentle life at the moment. No motorcycling (it's broken), but getting my parachute safety-checked and packed and plan on making a few jumps. No one in my life to share adventures with
at this time. Maybe my Spirits thought I needed the rest.
Editor's note: Tee has been selected as a 2011 INDUCTEE AT NAT'L SKYDIVING HALL OF FAME: INFO
UPDATE, NOV. 2009:
I've moved to Phoenix, crazy - huh? I'm working for Maricopa County, same Chief Appraiser job I did for City of Tucson before I retired. I'll return to Tucson in a few years - I still have a house there. And, of course, my heart will always be there.
Both of my sons, three grandchildren, and one great-grandchild live in Tucson. When you get used to it the drive isn't so far.

Give me a call if you're in the Phoenix area, or even if you're not. 520-360-0602 I kept my Tucson cell number.
Loved seeing so many at the reunion. Sorry I didn't have more time to spend with everyone.
ORIGINAL POSTING, 2004
Went to seek my fortune at 20 - Dallas, Seattle, North Carolina. After a dozen years, having not found it, I
returned to Tucson. Travels include Germany, India &
China with the US Parachute team as a competitor or
Team Leader. Other places for scuba diving, skiing,
or just for fun.
Both parents deceased for about ten years. Have two sons and four grandchildren. Married two years to a wild Buryat/Mongolian Russian. His English is finally
getting better. Have three large dogs that won't let
me sleep past 5 a.m. because they want their walk -
and my nether region is still overample. Maybe that's
because the three cats anchor me to a chair whenever
possible so they can sit on me. And, no, I'm not
going to talk about all of my ex-husbands here.
Nineteen years with the City of Tucson - am Chief
Appraiser. Still have broker's license - may sell
again when I retire.
Life is good. My God and my spirits who care about me and for me have been good to me, and I am grateful.
Still skydiving, motorcycling, scuba, - some golf,
hiking. Love the symphony and opera. Still going on
adventures. Been volunteering as a mediator for
almost 15 years - for City and Community agency. Give
time to Komen Foundation, Neighborhood association,
