Deeann Palmer Petty

August 1, 1956

We are doing great and living our best life in a log cabin in rural Alaska. We have one son who is engaged and lives with his fiance in Palmer, Alaska. We live a subsistence lifestyle, meaning we live off the land as much as we can. We have two pets (or do they have us??) which we enjoy immensely. Though we both are native Texans, we are wholly committed to being Alaskans too. I can’t imagine ever giving up Alaska now….it is our utopia.

Once this pandemic is over I’d like to go back to Texas and see friends. I miss my roots and all the fine people from Spring Branch!!! I’d love for friends to come visit and see how we live.

The best piece of advice I could possibly give is…..get to know God….He is awesome!!!!!

Yes, I planned to attend the 50th reunion if at all possible.

Married & retired
