Marilyn Linscott Henderson

My funniest memory was while we were all at Seaside Elementary. Once a week we had hot dogs and we'd try to see who could put the most mustard on the dog and still get it down.

Do you remember the plastic hearts the boys made in shop that had the little flowers inside?

During high school I never missed a basketball game (didn't hurt to date a basketball player) or football game — followed by laryngitis the next day. I worked with Rene Breedlove and we were instrumental in getting the first float in the rose Parade from Torrance. It was a choir boy.

Memory of Roger McCall: I dated Roger in our freshman year.

After graduation I went to El Camino College. However, in the middle of my first semester, I had thyroid surgery which stopped my education for awhile. In fact when I recovered, I went to work.

My first job was at Briles Manufacturing in El Segundo and then I went to work for Evelyn Schmald's father. Both of my early jobs were at manufacturing companies and I really wasn't interested. Fortunately, I saw an ad thatJaxson's Dress shops wanted a manager and I got the job and managed their stores in Baldwin Park and Alhambra. However, like all things, we're always trying to improve and I saw a listing for Imperial Household Shipping Co. Enjoyed it so well, I married the boss on September 30, 1967 and retired. Yippee!

Our son, Greg, was born in 1969 and we moved into our first home in Garden Grove. In fact we have renovated and remoodeled and still live here. While Greg was a pre-schooler we traveled quite a bit with my parents in their RV. Really enjoyed that type of traveling. We visited a lot of family and were able to see quite a bit of country.

Both of us have been plagued with poor health and we stay pretty close to home these days.
