I was born in Sheridan, Wyoming. My dad Bob Tandy and William Tandy moved to Juneau and opened Tandy Food Equipment on Franklin Street. I went through the Juneau school system and graduated from Juneau High School in 1951. I married Lloyd Reid, Jr. and lived out by the Glacier on 40 acres and homesteaded. Lived there 18 years, finally left, divorced and moved to Portland, Oregon.

My present husband, Leo Leach, and I just celebrated our 29th anniversary and live in LaQuinta, California, own our home and really enjoy it here. We are church people and enjoy the LaQuinta Christian Fellowship. We have no reason to move from LaQuinta. Leo has turned 70 years of age and Iím 67. Sure happened fast! My husband works for Bank of America and I am a housewife and enjoy it.
