Tell us about yourself!

I truly believe this is the best place to live and raise a family. I have been married to Steve for 41 years. We are both Waterville natives and now live on the farm where I grew up. We raise beef cows and calves as well as hay, corn and soybeans. We have three grown children and four grandchildren, pictured above. They are the next generation, and we need to keep the future on the right path for them!


What inspires you to keep serving on the Foundation board? 

Each spring at our grant awards ceremonies, it is so heartwarming to see all the different grants awarded and the number of dreams they help come true. I am inspired by the impact these grants make, especially for communities that wouldn't be able to move forward without them. The three splash pads we supported in three different towns in three separate years are a visible example of what we do for all to see and appreciate.
