Lover of life and it's possibilities. Loving and compassionate woman looking for a kind and affectionate gentleman with a sense of humor and a love of our Heavenly Father to be my mortal companion.
I am a former Elementary Art Teacher who retired ten years ago to have more time with my husband. I have been a widow for seven years, and although I love being a grandmother and great grandmother, I would like to share my life again with a good man. My father was 94 when he passed away and my mother is 95 and living in Iowa. I have been traveling to Iowa to help my mother with my father for the last seven years but my dad passed away in January of 2015 and my mother is now in Assisted Living. I am not needed now to stay with them so my life is opening up to new options.
I am going to have ankle sugery in late January from an old "football" injury.
Surgery over: Now recuperating, Thank goodness. I am hoping to travel again both internationally and the good old 48. I am open to camping by way of RV also although I have only done that back in the 70's and 80's because I want to see more of the National Parks and the Southwest. I like daytrips and festivals and historical sites. I also love museums of all kinds. I also would like to enable you to keep in contact with your family. There are never too many grandchildren to see and I would like to be a part of your family while still being a part of mine.
I have had many inquiries but 99% have been from non-LDS gentlemen. I am well educated but not a snob. I have many interests and most of my paintings are done from trips I have taken but I would like to have a companion who whether they can paint or not would be comfortable with me doing so. If not, I guess I will be joining some other women to travel. There is nothing wrong with a quiet night at home but the last seven years I have done quite alot of that and I would also enjoy some other activities.
In other words, I am going to try to make the best use of my life that I can and would like to help my companion to have joy in his life, too, wherever life takes us. I want to attend the Temple regularly and attend Sacrament Service each week. I can be can content at home but enjoy going out to dinner. I am open to leaving Indiana for the right man because I would expect to still see them and his, too, and Grandma is tired of staying home.
