Being active is a big priority for me and so I spend my days taking long walks, hiking, spending time with friends and family. Our family loves to spend time at the lake boating, skiing and just relaxing reading a book and enjoying each other’s company. I enjoy traveling and plan to continue to travel, hopefully one day with a companion.
After my retirement, I had the opportunity to be an ordinance worker in the Seattle temple. I have recently returned from serving a fulltime service mission in the Washington DC Temple, a fabulous experience that ingrained the love of the temple in me and gave me the opportunity to gain a new love for our US history after visiting monuments, memorials and battlefields in the DC area.
I have three married children and seven grandchildren that bring joy to my life. I have been widowed for 7 years and although I have a busy active life with friends and family, I am hoping that one day I could find someone to share the many wonders of life with me.
Honesty and trust are important character traits in a companion. It is important for me to find someone who is kind, caring and has the same excitement in life as I do. Someone who can make me laugh, accompany me on my long walks and be a great listener. Online dating is new to me and I feel apprehensive about the process. I prefer being contacted by email or phone.
I value keeping myself fit by making healthy food choices, but chocolate is always worth cheating for, and getting plenty of exercises. I enjoy trying new things so my friends call me the Energizer Bunny.
