I married my high school sweetheart, Carl Vanover (Class of 1957). Carl and I have 2 beautiful
daughters, Carla Jo and Marla Jan. Carla and Marla have blessed us with 4 grandchildren and 1
great grandchild to be born in October, 2009. ( I know what you are thinking – I am entirely too young
for a great grandchild, you are right). They all live in Big Timber, MT. ( My Son-In-Laws paid my
husband to keep me in Texas and out of their hair, ha ha I think)
My marriage to Carl ended in divorce and I was single for 3 years. Then I married Arlis McBee and
we were married for 33 years. Arlis passed away 2 years ago. After 1 divorce and 1 death, I do not
intend to marry again.
Since leaving Midland, I have lived in Notrees, Tx; Andrews, Tx; Baird, Tx; Jena, La; Big Timber, MT;
Phoenix, Az; and Dumas, Tx. (I think I may have some gypsy blood.)
My parents are deceased and lived in the same house that I grew up in, 3502 Apache Dr, (next door
to the house where the military plane landed after the crash with a private plane in 1956 or 1957).
My brother, Pete Henderson, (Class of 1958), still lives in Midland and his children graduated from
Lee High School and they still live in Midland.
After 20 years I retired from a CPA firm as Office Manager. I no longer dread January thru April 15th.
Now I work as an "On Call" for Edward Jones. ("On Call" is a fancy name for Temp.)
