My husband, John, and I have been blessed with three daughters, Sylvia, Evelyn and Adeline (all three of whom attend Holy Cross). Together we love and snuggle our young and spunky Rottweiler, Schatzie, and enjoy spending time at our cottage in Door County. We love traveling, spending time with our Morgan Horses and hang outdoors both around our home and beyond. We have a found our chosen family at Holy Cross.
