Houseworth - Lindskoog
I have had a lot of different jobs since graduation but none
for more than three years except being a mother. I had one
semester at Geneseo, and then quit. That earned me a phone
call from Miss Joint wondering in no uncertain terms why.
Simply, I was more interested in Ed than I was being a teacher.
Went to work for Strong Hospital as a histology technician
and earned my registry in 1963. What I did was make microscope
slides out of tissue for the diagnosis of diseases. I also
have been an admission secretary for National Institute for
the Deaf at RIT, a Courier, a cashier, a weight loss counselor,
a research histology technician and a business owner and I
still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. In the
midst of all that I earned my associates in
accounting from Monroe Community college and my bachelors
Ed and I have just celebrated forty-eight years of marriage.
We have been blessed with two sons and four grandchildren.
We are both now retired and are enjoying the grandkids and
their activities, which are a lot more numerous than we had
in school. I enjoy water, all kinds.
During the day my address is the swimming pool at East side
YMCA where I am a lap swimmer. I usually try to do between
a mile and two miles each time I swim. Now don't get me wrong,
I do it but don't ask me how long it takes. It's kind of neat
to have an eighteen year old life guard and an EMT who is
Ed and I have a cottage at Keuka Lake where I now have a
kayak and travel the shoreline talking to whoever is out there.
My motto is I will do as much as I want as long as I can
as long as I want with the strength the Lord my God gives
