I started school in a one room schoolhouse and it was a delightsome thing for me. We moved to a different farm which caused my brother and I to attend Lincoln Elementary School in Ottawa, Illinois. After attending there for five years we were mandated to go to George P. Hills School in Naplate, Illinois. Ottawa has two high schools, Marquette ( a Catholic one) and Ottawa Twp. I attended both. After high school I attended Illinois State University, Bloomington, Illinois on a Teacher's Schlorship. ===
It's fun thinking of all the work I've done and how wonderfully all the experiences afforded my development. Because of living on a farm, it was a given, to gather the eggs, feed the chickens, water the chickens, milk a cow, slop the pigs, sometimes feed the two-week old calves by letting them suck your fingers in a bucket of milk until they catch on how to do it without the fingers. Also, mowing the yard, helping in the garden, picking fruit in the orchard, vacuuming and dusting our five bedroom farmhouse pretty much completed the routine. Oh, did I mention drying the dishes. The first work which I got fifty-cents a day was baby sitting a two year old. It really was a matter of following him and making sure he was safe. The next paid job was detasseling corn. After that I sold Christmas cards door to door and worked in a beauty parlor after school and during summers. Waitress work while in college. Assortment of jobs, interspersed with marriage and children, dominated my life, but the greatest of these was raising my children - truly a labor of love. Did I say a variety of jobs?
