Founded in 1981-82, HWC members continue to be involved with Hinckley and develop friendships with each other. Membership hovers at around 50. Everyone interested in Hinckley is welcomed. I’ve been Charter President, 2nd Vice Pres (Fund-raising), and am currently Historian.
Tell us about you:
I’ve lived in Hinckley since the 1970’s – always on Center Rd. Dennis and I raised our family here.
I ‘m a retired educator – most of my career I was a Special Education Transition Coordinator specializing in social thinking skills/employability.
I love water – swimming snorkeling and boating and jet-skiing. I am a Red Cross Water Safety and Lifeguard Instructor Trainer. I also love to travel IF I can learn something along the way. Looking back, I’ve taken a whole lot of biking vacations, all over the world. I get involved in things I like.
Currently, besides HWC and HCC Secretary, I am Advisory Board Member of Friends of Richfield Heritage Preserve, REDCOAT and Tour Guide at Playhouse Square, Tour Manager for NOWAK Tours (I take 8th graders to DC), past Secretary of Rocky River Watershed Council.
In 2022 I was honored to be selected as Hinckley Citizen of the Year. Bucket List – to keep learning new skills! Life Changing and Cherished Events: Family – Our son Keith, his wife Pam, and each of our 5 grandchildren – the youngest was born on our 50th wedding anniversary!
Your key to success:
- Life is not a dress rehearsal
- Cherish the journey – it’s just as important as the destination
- Leave it better than it was when you found it
- It’s all about relationships
- Attitude is everything
Commitment, Consideration, Communication

I love Hinckley – I hope we all remember the motto: Small Town – Big Hearts
