After high school graduation I attended UNL and received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I married Ron Larsen and we had 4 children. I went back to school and received my Early Childhood degree. I’ve taught
6th grade, preschool, director/teacher of Head Start, and kindergarten. After Ron and my youngest son, Tim, were killed in 2006 I married Steve Johnston. I retired from teaching and am now spending my time golfing in AZ and enjoying my lake house in NE. I have 11 grandchildren. They keep me very busy since they are in NE, KS and AZ.
