Jen Farthing made my years at SMC better than I could have ever imagined. We were roommates and friends for years and has a sense of humor and a taste in music like no one else. She excels at being the life of the party and being the supporter of anyone who needs a little pick me up. She currently lives in Chicago IL where she is a marketing executive for an advertising agency.
Jennifer is my oldest sister and the wisest among us. She is a mother and wife and will be my matron of honor. She is a skilled cross stitcher and a master of the English language, having earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in English from GVSU and Hollins University respectively. She resides in Roanoke, VA where she works with Delta Dental Insurance as an independent contractor.
LeeAnn is the youngest sister and is a ball of fun. She was the last of the family to graduate from Catholic Central last year and is in her first year of college at Grand Rapids Community College. She is a poor artist, but has accomplished beautiful pieces of art in her lifetime. She loves Einstein, and is almost as smart as him. She is the only sibling to be living in Grand Rapids still.
Alicia Soszynski is my former roommate from DeKalb, IL. She is a saint, or an 8th grade special education teacher, whichever you prefer. She has a master’s degree in Special Eduation from Northern Illinois University and has a beautiful outlook on life. We became friends while I was on staff at Nazareth Farm. She loves to return to West Virginia after having volunteered there from 1997-98.
is my not only my sister, but my maid of honor. She loves to be crafty
(I’m sure she
learned it from her bigger sister) and is the height of fashion. She
is a beautiful woman and a beautiful soul. Her current job is perfect
for her, combining milkshakes and steakburgers. Yes, she works
for Steak N Shake in Eastern Michigan as a corporate trainer. Rumor has
it that she’ll be sharing free milkshakes with all the guests at
the wedding. Meridith lives in Novi, MI.
Rebecca McBride (formerly Becky Deitle) was the best surprise in a random roommate that I could ask for.When I signed up to be put in a random dorm room my freshman year at SMC, I had no idea that it would result in sharing a room with one of my future best friends. Our times together have been priceless and I have enjoyed her optimism and friendly outlook in every place she has been. She is living in Denver, CO with her husband, Sean and is working in marketing.
