Frances M. Mandeville-Neuman
After graduation, I went to a year of Junior College. Then I got a job at Perpetual Savings and Loan, downtown D.C. I worked there for a year, met and later married Max Disharoon, we had a daughter while we lived in Albuquerque, NM. Later we divorced and not long after, I married Wayne Slove, who had two (2) children from a previous marriage. The five (5) of us moved to Rolling Meadows, IL, about 45 miles from Chicago. We were married for 14 years. I was single for a year, then met Richard Neuman, who had two (2) married sons, they had three (3) children each. Almost a year later my husband sold his business, we got married and all of us moved to Clearwater, FL. We started a lawn care and landscaping business, which lasted seven (7) years. We sold that and invested in a golf store, which was in New Port Richey. Because three (3) other golf stores moved into the area we only lasted about a year and a half, we went bankrupt, sold what was left and at 58 my husband had to find a job. He was successful and went to work for a company that used to sell him the steel molds he had used in his plastic injection molds business years ago in Chicago. We then moved to Greensboro, NC for a year, then we moved to Greer, SC, where he was a plant manager for seven (7) years until his death resulting from a brain tumor in 1995.
Between the two of us we had 18 grandchildren and one great grand daughter. I was happier than I had ever been before and was so fortunate to have met such a loving and caring man. I miss him terribly and have been single for 14 years. My daughter still lives in the Chicago area and has triplets, two sons and a daughter, and they are eleven (11) years old. If everything goes well I’m going to visit them July 15th for six (6) weeks.
I retired from 10 years of working for St. Francis Hospital as a Supply and Inventory Clerk, and have enjoyed 2 and a half years of retirement.
Many thanks to all of you that have worked so hard to make our reunion so successful. It is so appreciated.
Hope to see you all the 28th of June.
Till then, take care.
