How long have you been living in East Lansing?

(Lives in Haslett, active in East Lansing community) 35 years.

What’s your favorite thing about the area?

Where I live, it’s close enough out the country, you can get out to it, but you got everything you need close by. You got everything you need, without being a huge city.

If you could be any movie character, who would you choose?

Oh dear me… That’s a good one. I can’t think of a movie with a name, but it’s one I saw recently… A woman works for the CIA, actually goes into the field, she’s been in the office and she just sorta takes life and goes for it.

What would you consider one of your biggest accomplishments?

I could be sarcastic and say surviving 62 years on this crazy planet. I suppose the years I worked on the open heart surgery unit at the Am Medical Center. It was quite something to do.

If you could eat a single food item for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

Oh dear. Looking at it from a nutritional point of view, one food would probably have to be milk because it has pretty much everything in it. If I could get all the nutrients in just one food, I would just wave my magical wand and everything would be in it. That’s a good question. This is gonna sound strange, but probably potatoes.
