Yvonne Krueger Paxton


After high school I went to a four-month school to become a dental assistant.  I was hired right after graduation.  I worked in a periodontal office in San Mateo from 1961 until I retired in 2004.


I married Jerry in May 1963. We had our first son in September 1964 and our second son in 1970.  We have been married for 46 years. 


I like to knit, crochet, cross-stitch, walk, and collect Halloween things that are antique.


As for pets, we had 3 cats.  The first cat was a gift and the last two adopted us.  We are now down to one cat and she is 17 years old.


My favorite movies are mysteries on PBS, Luck of the Irish, The Philadelphia Story, Casablanca and Miracle on 34th Street.


In September 2005 we moved to Bend, Oregon.
