Yes! Attending Reunion

I am a barefooted wild child. Only changes since school is I've gotten wilder, fatter, grayer. Age Happens!

School Story:

Went on to Kellogg Community College then Michigan State and then The Detroit College of Arts and Crafts.
I hit the art fair circuit and started to earn a living.
Met my hubby at an art fair in West Allis, Wisconsin, a bedroom community for Milwaukee. It was on May 1st, 1971, we got married between art fairs on September 23rd, 1972. That was 42 years ago, and I am still driving him nuts!
We traveled to art fairs as far as Boston, doing two or sometimes three show a month, hurrying back home, make more jewelry and then back on the road. What a fun way to earn a living. We saw some of this country, met great people and spent quality time with fellow artists. It's almost like being a gypsy.
You may note that I am speaking in past tense... Why? Well in 1995 we finally talked my sweet mama into leaving her home on 38 Taylor St, in Urbandale, to come live with us. She being a very stubborn and independent 90 year old, finally gave in, sold her home and became a wonderful part of our family here in East Jordan. We had 4 more great years with her. We gave up the art fairs to be with her.
A new chapter opened up for us.... In July 1995 we went to a Garage Sale and bought the garage for $1.00....moved it to our property, and turned it into our little Brick and Mortar shop ~ 'Sacred Sparks'. A new venue of earning a living, but totally dependent on local traffic and a few travelers. We did have a following and some of those came to our new little shop, ~ which is not brick and mortar, but wood and glass... just sayin'.
Twenty+ years have passed and things are winding down a bit. We still create jewelry but our buying public has dwindled, gotten old, or died. Age has a way of doing that.
This coming May 9th, we are holding the 12th annual May Day Celebration to welcome Spring, and kick up the dust a bit. Five bands will be here, exhibitors, psychic readers and great local food from Happy's Taco Truck. What does it cost? All we ask is that you bring donations for The Women's Resource Center Safe House. Things like non perishable food, diapers, paper products, shampoo, tooth paste, no clothing though, they have a resale shop for that. And of course monetary donations to help buy perishable foods. There is my little advertisement snuck in here nice and neat. Hope you could come, it truly is a great time. Oh yes, did I mention that I am a practicing Witch... have been all my life, just didn't know it till 1975. Wowzers... it's all out there now. Nothing to hide. I am me and I love my life, poverty and all. If that word "witch' made you cringe... we need to talk. Have a splendedly beautiful day.... Linda

Junior High School attended (NW, SE, SW, WK or other)


What you shared with us in 2005:

For 20 years Linda Beers and Jerry Aydlott were known as Jordan Valley Studios. They traveled the country selling their art at juried shows. In July 1993 they went to a garage sale and bought the garage! A year later they opened as Sacred Sparks. They seldom sit still for long, hopelessly entrenched in what they do and loving every minute. Sacred Sparks is a dream that happened to come true.

I offer warm thoughts to all of Doris' family and friends.  She was a driving force of happy energy and love, and brought forth a family that will hold their memories of her, close and precious.  Have fun in Heaven Doris, you certainly deserve it!  ?º¤‹•BlΣs?ing?•? *°?•°*?”•.¸.?•*°•?~•?*´?•?*°?•

I am sorry to hear of Norma Ann's passing.  Her smile certainly lit up the halls of BCHS.  Her happy light will certainly be missed by all who knew her.  Rest in good peace Norma Ann.

I didn't personally know Michael.  His photo shows a man with a zest and wholeness for life.  My thoughts go out to his family and all his friends.  May Mike continue to dance in green fields and a warm sun in Peace and knowing he lived a good life and was loved by many.  •-:¦:-•~PeA?eFuL~?~BLΣSSI?GS??ª''*:•-:¦:-

I am sorry to learn of David's passing.  I did not know David from my BCHS years, it is clear to me, that it was my loss.  Reading his memorial tells a story of a wonderful person, fully rounded, and deeply connected to Spirit.  I wish I had known David, but I can know how much of an emty hole his passing will leave with all who were connected to him.  I offer my heart felt sympathy to all who had the blessing of knowing this incredibly wonderful person.  Blessed Be in the Light of Spirit always.................................

Though we didn't know each other closely, I do remember passing Janet in the halls of BCHS.  We passed enough to smile in a recognizing way.  Bless you Janet on your new and beautiful journey.

Bless you Robert Moore... you made this world a better place for all, and that is what we all hope to do.  You did!  Rest in Peace my highschool friend.  Linda

After reading that incredibly wonderful memorial, I was moved to tears.  Carole grew to be a bright Light in our world, and I only wish we could have been friends after BCHS.  But Carole went her way and I mine, to my own loss.  

Thank you Carole, for being part of my early journey.  You are missed very much.  Dance with joy.

I am sorry to hear of Cheryl's passing.  I remember Cheryl and her happy bouncy smiles in the halls of BCHS.  We weren't close but did have a friendly relationship as classmates.   

  I send my prayers to her family and friends who have suffered her loss.

I found this article that offers a bit more info about Cheryl,    ...

I am sorry to hear of Judy's passing.  We only knew each other from classes or passing each other in the halls of BCHS.  She was a beautiful person, and from her later photo, that continued through out her life.  From the words of her obituary, she lived a rich and active life.  All we can do is hope for that.  Prayers to her family.

I send Julie's family condollences for their loss of a lovely person.  I sadly did not know Julie, but we were in the Class of 65 and that is close enough.  May she rest in gentle and loving Peace.
