School Story:

I was one of the shy withdrawn kids. Never popular. Thats why I don't expect many will even remember me. I was in the PEP Club, Future Homemakers of America (boy has that one gone out the window), swinging Eaglette my senior year. Never dated much, too shy. I came out of my shell when I graduated and expanded my friends. One of the things I really remember about high school is Steak Plates on Wednesday with french fries. Dancing at the ball games with the Eaglettes. I'll never forget the time we danced at the Reynolds game at Bowman Gray and half of us turned the wrong way on the 50 yard line, we really look well choreographed with that feasco.....I still enjoy dancing....I just don't wear that little short skirt and carry pom poms. I have a flower from the courtyard pressed in my annual.

Elementary School Attended


Junion High School Attended



Well since high school. I have stayed in the Winston-Salem area. I went to Forsyth Tech for two years got an AAS in Exec. Sec. Science. Worked for 6 years. Got married in 1977 a guy from North Forsyth. Moved to the Pfafftown area lived there until 1986. We moved back to Belews Creek into a new home. Went back to school in 1994 got a BS in Business. Married for 25 great years until my husband Wade went midlife crisis on me. Divorced now. Have worked for myself and in corporate world for 35 years. Have rental property, work with an online travel business now. Want to travel before I am "Over the Hill" and in good health. I have two beautiful boys who are now 28 and 30...the youngest is married with a baby now 2 years old....he is so beautiful....its alot more fun being a grandparent.....

This year has not been good, business has not been good......its hard to determine who your true friends are most of the time.

I have recently worked with the Census....which I enjoyed very much. The only job I have ever had that allowed me to work and use the experience I have in real estate and get good money for it. It was a very pleasant job and I enjoyed meeting lots of different people. I hope to work with them again.

I now have an Ebay Store, for 5 year, doing really well with it. I sell jewelry, tablewares such as fabric napkins, napkin rings, placemats. Both New and pre owned items and an occasional unique item. I also have started designing my own bead embroidery jewelry. You can find me on Chrome or IE as dopurcell2012. I'm very well known on the internet.

Thats about it for my exciting life......

Sorry for your loss.  Did not know her personally.  Alot of us from the Walkertown area did not get to know those from Kernersville and Glenn Area.  I'm sure she will be remembered.

I got the last notice that David Elliott Died.  Unfortunately, I did not know him very well.  He was not in the group that I hang out with, but he was still one of us.  We are slowly disappearing one by one.....would it be great if we could forever?  My condolences.
