- Tell us a little bit about you and what you like to do in your free time.
Three years ago, I took a leap of faith and moved to Joplin where I did not know a single soul. I have a daughter in Oklahoma, hence the move. Through transferring my P.E.O. membership, joining Joplin Area Welcome Club and attending First Methodist, I have made a host of new friends and have a very active social life. Joplin truly has become home. I am blessed with three children, seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. My hobbies run the full gamut – reading, music, cross-stitching, writing, traveling and puzzling are a few. I have Alfie, a rescue dog, who is 13. That translates to 91 years old, so I am living with a male older than I.
- What do you look for in a partner?
I am no longer looking, but if I were, kindness would be my top priority. Also, someone who is fun, has a positive attitude and is a good listener.
- What are your deal breakers?
Confrontation and negativity would be complete deal breakers.
- Describe your dream first date.
A picnic at Laguna Beach on a warm, sunny day would be ideal. Few people and breaking waves would add to my dream date.
- What’s your favorite love song and why?
“If” by the musical group Bread, because it was my husband’s favorite. He always requested it be played. The words are deep and poignant.
