I graduated from Mount Holyoke College, a member of Phi Beta Kappa, in June 1960 with a degree in geology. Five days later, I married Shawn Biehler (LHS class of 1954.)  We moved to Pasadena, California, where Shawn was working on his PhD at CalTech.  I worked for the Seismological Laboratory there for several years until I joined a local defense contracting firm.  In 1964 we had a son, Shawn, and then a daughter, Bonnie, in 1965.  When Bonnie was six months old, we moved to Massachusetts where Shawn became a professor at MIT.  I stayed home, enjoying my children and the Massachusetts countryside until our 1970 divorce. Then I went back to work as a computer programmer.  I worked for several small defense sub-contractors until I joined Raytheon Company and bought a home in Sudbury, MA.  In my spare time I did a great deal of bicycle riding, both racing and touring.  We biked, hiked and camped all over New England and Nova Scotia.  After retiring, I moved to a Phoenix area senior recreational community.  I have taken more French lessons here, learned to create stained glass lamps, taught an adult Bible class, and served as treasurer of an investment club for seven years.  I have also done a lot of genealogical research and am writing a family history.

My son is a computer tech (hardware) and lives with me.  Bonnie is a physical therapist, is married, and has three little boys.  She and her family live in southern Oregon.
