Comments:

Graduated Purdue School of Pharmacy 1974
Worked for independent pharmacies in Fountain County for 34 years. Made transition to working for Walmart in Danville, IL in 2008. Married John R. Grubbs in 1976. He is a Lilly retiree now and farms. I left Walmart at the end of 2012 and am semi-retired now. The independent pharmacy in Danville, IL where I was working part time closed its doors in April 2017. My total number of grandchildren is now ten. On Sept. 17, 2013, my daughter gave birth to twin sons, Miles and Evan, who look nothing alike. Her daughter, Gretchen, was born on April 7, 2015, and youngest daughter was born November 27, 2016. Cynthia's family lives in Arlington Virginia. My son has three children, Xavier, Braxton, and Kinlee, and my oldest stepson has two daughters, Taylor and Summer, and a two year old son, Jay'den. Taylor was married in September 2017.

School Story:

I was writing on the chalkboard in Mr. Wilcox's Algebra II class before it started. I wrote the phrase from Laugh-In, "Blow in my ear and I'll follow you anywhere." He walked in and chased me with a yardstick. I don't think he hit me!

As far as memories, Delphi holds many, including world history team teaching classes with Mr. McGrew and Mrs. Whitehead. Speech class with Mr. Buck always stands out in my mind. Mr. Geheb had a big influence on my decision to become a pharmacist (after Frank Fitch). P.E. with Miss Ghere wasn't so bad!

Connie Swadley sent me the Lilly video of you. Great job. I worked for Ron and Connie for 15 years as a pharmacist. I graduated from Delphi in 1969 and Purdue in 1974. I was actually at your wedding to Ryan. Keep up the great work! If anyone else wants to see it, the link is http://lillypad.lilly.com/entry.php?e=8977

Happy Birthday! Start planning now to come to the 50th class reunion in 2019. We had a great time at the 45th!

The Alumni site keeps sending me reminders that today is your birthday. So here is my wish for a very happy birthday! Do you remember the time the I went with your family and saw a play, "Teahouse of the August Moon"? I am wondering if that trip was for your birthday. It was a theater-in-the-round, I think up somewhere in northern Indiana, possibly in Amish Country. I don't think that I saw your name on the list of people coming to the 45th reunion. Wish you could make it. I have not seen you in years. I think that the last reunion you attended was the one that I was not there, because of a 4-H queen contest. Well, have a nice birthday. If you do email, my address is I would love to hear from you!
