Emily STANTON Adams

 I finished a degree in English at Wesleyan in Macon, GA, then started a masters at University of Denver, but stopped before finishing to marry DU English prof, John Adams. We lived in Laguna Beach, CA, (UC Irvine) then moved here to Colfax, Washington.  We had three daughters along the way--Hannah (Walker) here in Colfax, Stephanie (Hunter) in Leesburg, VA, and Susan (Marco) in Austin, TX.  I wrote for the local newspaper for 13 years then worked as city clerk for City of Colfax and retired as city administrator a few years ago.  John retired from Washington State U in 1992.  His health failed and he died in 1999.   I absolutely LOVE retirement.  Enjoy doing some art work that was put off while I was working.  Also garden; hang out with my fabulous cat Eric; enjoy socializing with friends; and, best of all, spend as much time as possible with my two granddaughters, Lucy, 5, and Chloe, 3,  who are in Austin, TX.
