Miss Mouse and Me – 40 years later by Steve Nyberg

Posted by mcnary69 on February 22, 2009

Hey, I love technology. It is so cool that I got an invitation in the mail at a new address. By the way, this is Steve Nyberg and I get this mental pictures of people from 40 years ago when I see the names of people on the post and invitations. The invitation had to chase us from Salem/Keizer to Connecticut, Atlanta, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Dallas (TX not OR) and found us in Greenville, SC, where we just moved last year.

My high school sweetheart and I (Denise Loewen from South Salem High) were also married in 1969 (oops) but despite the statistics she has still put up with me. I guess after all the training she just does not want to start over. God has a sense of humor and my life proves it every day. He also has an incredible sense of grace and mercy which I receive constantly.

Denise (Miss Mouse – my nickname) graduated from OCE while I was in the service so that I could go to school on the GI bill. We switched places while she taught and I ended up in public accounting in Portland. Went to work for a client that ended up moving to CT and all of a sudden I became a corporate gypsy, moving with the opportunities and where I felt I was meant to be, which meant all the moves to different locations and companies noted above.

Somewhere in all that we had two children and now have FOUR (how did that happen?) wonderful grandkids. Not sure it I will be able to make the reunion, but it would be a blast to catch up.

Kyle, Dave, Gil, Jenneane and to everyone else…I send warmest greetings and have fond memories.

Current contact information StevenNyberg@AOL.com, also on facebook.
