I am an active LDS widow who is looking for a man with whom to share the rest of my life. I love the church, and it is the center of my life. I have grown children who have families of their own. They all live in Florida so I don't get to see them often.
I worked and supported my family as a Certified Nurse Midwife. I retired in 2009 due to health issues and moved back to Arizona to die. My health was terrible. The longer I lived here, the more my health improved. Getting out from all the stress at work and at home made all the difference in the world for me. I have lost over 70 pounds in the last year and am still loosing. I intend to get down to my ideal weight this year. I feel better than I have in many years.
I am a breast cancer survivor. When I saw my Oncologist this week, he told me all my tests (which were many) say I am cancer free now. I had put my life on hold till I could finally say that. So now I am ready to start living again.
I am a fairly quiet person, and I don't like confrontation and tension. I am fairly easy-going, kind, honest, and trust worthy, and I love my country. I love animals, but I am allergic to cats.
I was married for 34 years before my husband died of Alzheimer's Dementia in October 2000. I took care of him at home till about three months before he died. I am a believer in marriage being a life time commitment, if not for the eternities. It is hard being alone at this stage in my life. I need to be needed and loved.
I wish you each well and hope that you all find the one you are searching for. God help us all!
UPDATE: I met an active LDS man on this site almost two years ago. We have been writing, calling and visiting as we could all this time. He lives in St. George, Utah, which is a good 10 hour drive away. I fell in love with him a long time back, but he wasn't sure about getting married again. He told me to look elsewhere if I wanted marriage. We continued to write and call each other. Even made trips to see each other. He called me this week, and after talking for awhile, he asked me to marry him. He says he loves me. I said YES. We will be married on Valentine's Day. I will leave this on the site to give you all hope. LDSSingles does work!!!
