Profile Updated: July 3, 2023
Residing In:
Kirkland, WA USA
Spouse/Partner:
Roland Strolis - passed away April 1, 2017
Occupation:
Retired from Boeing - Desktop Publishing, etc.
Children and grandchildren:
Chris Oleson was born 1970 and lives in Kenmore,WA. He is married and has 3 young children (10 1/2 More…yr old daughter, 5 1/2 year old twins).
Daughter Kim was born in 1972 and lives in North Bend, WA with her significant other. They have a son born November 2013.
What does the reality of turning 70 mean to you?

Time spent with family and friends is precious - treasure it.

Favorite High School Memory:

I have many friends that I am still friends with today and that is my best high school memory.

What have you been up to:

How's that for an open ended question? Well, I had a practice marriage and now I know how to do the marriage thing right - well at least 22 years of it right. Got the kids to independence so ended up retiring from Boeing, although I only worked there 10 years. Did that stay at home thing that worked really well.
Have spent much time doing different volunteer things but at the moment only active in a Group that I co-lead with a friend called NorthWest Women in Boating. Yes, we do boat and have our boat moored on Lake Washington. The group of women enjoy monthly programs on topics pertaining to boating.
Yes, I still ski but it has to wait until February this year until the boat show gets over. At least the tickets are getting cheaper and I've made many new friends that I really enjoy skiing with. I have also given Stand Up Paddle Boarding a try and really enjoy it even here in Puget Sound. Not a good idea to fall, as the water really is cold.
Of course I do enjoy flowers and grow interesting ones inside and the normal fun ones outside. I have traveled a fair bit and the flowers of tropical places I've been seem to reside at my house.

So that is more than you really wanted to know, but do know that I am having fun doing many things that interest me and wish I had more energy so I could do more: boating, skiing, sewing, gardening, cooking and teaching my granddaughter crafts and sewing.

What directions are you taking with your life now?

See above.

Happy Birthday Rich and I hope you have a great day. With all the snow in Montana it is a pretty crummy time to have a Birthday Party in the park, but I'm sure you can find a nice warm place to celebrate catching up to the rest of us very active seniors. It's not bad being our age.

Happy Birthday and wishing you a good year. I hope you are staying warm is Montana's coldest winter in a long time. Hope to see you when we have another reunion albeit probably a mini reunion. Stay warm and stay safe.

Happy Birthday and stay warm. Don't get too tired shoveling snow.
Fun to see you at the reunion as it was a fun time but it needs to be longer to get all the visiting in.

January 2013 I am joined by my recycled Halloween and Thanksgiving Pumpkins. They have become again recycled as after 4 months and a can of flock (which I did brush off before recycling) they had deteriorated. Next year I will have a scarf and some unique arms that will not grab people entering the house.
