So many years - so
much has happened in ALL our lives! I am now very happily retired and
living in Tampa, FL since 1992, with my second husband, Jim Brennan. I
have 3 lovely children who are scattered around the world. My oldest (and
mother of my only granddaughter) is in Virginia, my middle daughter in
Tallahassee FL, and my "baby" son in London, England!
Fortunately, all are doing well and are very happy! After HS I fulfilled
my lifelong dream, entered Nursing School and became a Registered Nurse.
Married my 1st husband, Mickey Oppenheim, immediately after graduation,
and moved to Long Island. I worked in Labor and Delivery and loved it! We
stayed for 8 years, had the kids (busman's holiday), then Mickey found
engineering work with IBM in Huntsville, AL. We soon were transferred to
Gaithersburg, MD, and I, too, found work with IBM as an Occupational
Health Nurse. To make a long story short (too late!) by 1976things had changed, and we separated, but remained on good terms.
(Works better for the kids that way...)
I soon was transferred to NC,
then back to Virginia in the DC area. All this time, I was involved in
local Community Theater productions: backstage, acting, whatever. What
fun, and what a great way to meet new people! It is now 1983, and an old
friend introduces me to a cast member in her current production. Voila!!!
Jim and I clicked, and after awhile, decided to make it
"permanent", even if it DID mean that my initials were now
Helene S O B! (That's Schottenfeld/Oppenheim/Brennan. At least I got a
short name that MOST people can spell!) Jim has 4 Grandkids, plus 2 Great-Grands
and I enjoy them all!
We continue to be active in our local
Community Theater, travel a bit, and would love to see any classmates that
find themselves on the West Coast of Florida in the Tampa area.
You can contact me via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.Looking forward to the Reunion! The enclosed photo was taken at the
wedding of Jim's granddaughter in California. (Yes, I used to be a blond,
but found that the red hair was very complementary to my skin tones!)
