Carol Anderson (Preyer)
August 15, 1944 Retired Teacher Married 2 I will be forever grateful to Mr. Powell for his help with Geometry, to Mrs. Blum for her patience in Speech class, and to Miss Lynen for her amazing skill as my English teacher! Miss Lynen (English), Mrs. Blum (Speech), Mr. Powell (Geometry)Greetings from Montana! Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the reunion, but I wish all of you a great time as you celebrate!
My life has been filled with many blessings! After high school, I attended Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana, earning my BA in Education. My first teaching job was in Anchorage, Alaska, where I taught third grade for two years. It is also the place where I met my future husband, Mike Preyer, who coincidentally happens to be a graduate of Jefferson High School in Edgewater, Colorado.
After my time in Alaska, I went to Garrett Theological Seminary for one year of education. Then Mike and I were married. We spent the next 21/2 years living in Schweinfurt, Germany. Mike was in the Army there, and I taught second grade at the American School. Our first daughter Julie was born there.
When we returned to the States, we both attended graduate school at CSU. I earned my Master's Degree in Reading Education. At a time when teaching jobs were hard to find, we ended up moving to Wolf Point, Montana, on the Ft. Peck Indian Reservation. Mike was a school administrator, and I taught elementary school, junior high English, and high school Basic English. I retired after 27 years of teaching!
Unfortunately, we were only able to have one birth child. So, we adopted our second daughter at the age of three. We had many challenges raising her, but there were also some surprising blessings!
In 1997 MIke and I joined the Peace Corps for service in the Philippines. Our service was cut short there, however, by health issues and our inability to adapt to the extreme heat and humidity. However, it was a great adventure!
We returned to the States and settled in Laurel, Montana. We both worked for several years before officially retiring. We moved to Columbus, Montana, and we built our present home on 21 acres of beautiful mountain property.
During the past twelve years we have been blessed to do some amazing international travel! We enjoyed four trips to South America, our favorite being a trek on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru. We also enjoyed doing treks in Chile, Argentina, and Ecuador, as well as visiting the Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica, and China. Last summer we returned to Germany for a trip down memory lane, a family reunion in Italy, and a family heritage trip to France.
As you all well know, life is not perfect. Sad, tragic things happen! In 2005 we lost our oldest daughter Julie in a tragic car accident in Canada. She was living there with her Marine husband who was doing a pilot exchange with the Canadian Air Force. Their precious daughter has Down Syndrome and was only 21/2 years old when her mom died. We were and still are heartsick for our great loss, but we continue to be thankful that we had 32 amazing years with our amazing daughter! Moreover, we still have a wonderful relationship with her husband and our special granddaughter.
Overall, I feel very blessed with all that life has given me! I have an amazing husband, wonderful family, and many good friends. Most of all, I have my faith in a loving, everpresent Higher Power who gives me guidance, strength, and unconditional love!
Well, I guess that 's enough about me! Best regards to all of you "old" high school friends!
