Comments:

Graduated from Abilene High School, then worked at Hendrick Hospital in the Medical Records Department. Completed the Medical Records Technician course at Hendrick Hospital. Married Frederick Wendell Mulloy in 1954. Went to Germany in 1955 for a year; loved that experience.

After returning to U.S., we lived in Las Cruces, New Mexico, where Sandy was born. Was secretary to three doctors, then worked at White Sands Missile Range for Nike contractors until June 1960 when Fred graduated from New Mexico State University. Moved to Port Neches, Texas, where Marianne was born, and I was active in many projects. Lived there for 13 years where he worked for Goodrich-Gulf and Gulf Oil Company before moving to Austin Area.

Moved to Round Rock in 1975. Helped organize a garden club in neighborhood. Also enjoyed playing Bunco. Worked for the Texas Department of Health for 20 years in automated data services (still don't understand computers!). Retired, and health went downhill.

Enjoy genealogy, garden club, grands and great-grands, scrap booking, card making, crafting, cross-word puzzles and listening to music. I have several e-pals whom I've never met and probably never will, and keep up with my relatives and friends via Internet. Have found new relatives on the Internet. Spend 8-10 hours a day on my computer. What a wonderful invention! Enjoy using Facebook and belong to groups through it.

School Story:

I was born in Tuscola and went to school here until the middle of my junior year when I transferred to Abilene High. Since we were in small classes, we knew all our classmates and many of us have known each other all our lives.

Every day we ate in the cafeteria and cleaned our plates. What I remember most are the two big delicious peanut butter cookies we sometimes got with our lunch.

When we graduated 8th grade, we rode the school bus to Austin where we saw the capitol and governor's mansion. We climbed to the top of the dome. After climbing up to the dome, I hardly had the energy to walk to the mansion. We enjoyed swimming in the cold Barton Springs pool. We also saw the big Buchanan Dam on the way home. In Austin, we stayed in a "tourist court". Each room was separated, so roommates had a little house. We didn't have air conditioning, so windows were left open to let the breeze in. Times were much safer then. We had a great trip and memories to last forever.

"Goodnight, Irene" was a favorite song to sing while riding the bus to and from football games. Our driver probably wished we would learn something new or be quiet for a while!

We had wonderful, caring teachers. Life was much simpler and carefree then.
