Children Bill Mathews born 1968

We had been very active in motorcycle touring for 25 years. I retired from GE Capital Fleet Services.We purchased farm land in the Ozarks in Mo in 1997. In 2001 had our home built and made the move and love living in the "south". I worked for several years at Bank of America and fully retired in 2011. We don't travel. Just love the seclusion of this beautiful land in the hills. Life is good!! Come on down "ya-all"

School Story

All 13 years of school was in Edina. We could walk to Concord or ride the bus. My home ( on Garrison Lane) was a dirt road until after graduation. That part of Edina was still rural until mid to end of the 50's. No Southdale, no Edina Pool, even France Ave was a single lane country road. Ah, progress. gotta love it.
I still remember the bus driver and how we respected his authority and remember crying when he passed away. I'm very proud of saying I was educated in Edina. After all these years I realized how special our school and educational system was.

I was in Minnesota last weekend for a whirlwind trip. Nancy Kelly ( Miller ) came to see me at my friends home in Shakopee. We had a grand reunion and shared memories of our childhood. She calls me FEARLESS but she is the fearless one raising 4 children and
educating all them. Hope there are more memories to come.

my birthday cake ( a few weeks ago) had a picture of me on it playing the accordion on our deck...not many classmates knew I played the accordion. I quit for over 40 years and now enjoy playing the old time music. No one in MO understands it...Sort of a MN thing I guess.
