August 16, 1943 LaFayette NY family therapist, psych nurse - retired Married 2 (in Maryland) Boynton Jr. High IHS Well, that's a daunting question! The brief version is: raised our family of two sons, helped found Rapha Community (a house church of now 40 years- a spiritual community and wonderful extended family to each other), worked as a family therapist/psych nurse and administrator at a pastoral counseling center for 30 years, struggled with aggressive osteoarthritis and multiple joint replacements, learned to paint landscapes, and stayed married to Roland Marion ('60) for all these years. We have both been retired for 5 years now and I love the increased time to read, paint, sew or knit, garden, and visit son Michael, an interpretive ranger at Acadia National Park in Maine, and son Scott, a marine biologist on the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. We've lived in LaFayette, near Syracuse for this whole time, in a 114 year old house that needs nearly as much repair and renovation as our aging bodies! Music and nature fill our spirits as often as we let them.
