I graduated from Heidelberg University with a degree in music. I taught music education grades K-12 and special education before retiring in 1998. I am also a retired organist, but am currently accompanying our service hymns along with our pianist.
I was happily married to my high school sweetheart Sam for 38 years before he passed away with a terminal illness in 2001. We moved to Bellevue in 1964 and raised two sons: Brian (wife Kim), and Brad (wife Traci), and their daughter Ella.
It is a joy to be a small part of the talented music staff at First Church. Our services are greatly enhanced with the chancel and bell choirs under Carol’s direction, Chantal’s beautiful piano selections, and the praise band.
When in our music God is glorified, Alleluia!
