Sherill + Joe-
I had the pleasure to make the drive out to Joe’s gorgeous house that he built. It was a perfect sunny day however very cold.
Here is a little about the “Engaged” couple:
Sherill worked for The Boeing Company for 22-1/2 years and decided to retire at the end of the year. In her last role with Boeing, she designed and developed learning solutions, and facilitated leadership courses for emerging, entry and mid-level leaders, both domestically and internationally. She is also a certified coach and consulted with all levels of leadership on topics such as trust, communication, culture transformation, and vision/strategy.
Joe is a boat captain of 35+ years and currently works as a Master on a small vessel in the State of Washington.
They both grew up in Juneau, Alaska and met in high school. Joe asked Sherill to the 1975 junior prom but never dated in high school. After graduation, their lives took them into different paths and geographic locations. They reconnected at the 40th high school reunion last summer in Juneau and have been together ever since. After being reconnected for a year, Joe proposed with his Mom’s wedding ring from 1950.
Being raised in Alaska made them both nature lovers and enjoy spending time outdoors near the water or in the mountains. They enjoy spending time walking on the beach near their house or going kayaking, and time with family that includes two grand-kids.
Here are a few they purchased for their “wall art” and a few extra of our beautiful area:
