I'm fluent in German since I grew up in Fulda, West Germany where I was trained in banking. I met my husband Dennis when he was stationed in Fulda. We came to Nebraska with an assignment to Offutt Air Force Base in 1982, and we quickly learned that the Omaha area is a great place to live. With our son and two daughters in local schools, we decided to retire here. After high school, our children attended local universities.
