Do not go where the path may lead, go instead
where there is no path and leave a trail.

Name-Maiden Name: Barbara Morrell-Quirarte

Occupation-Occupations: Retired from UCLA Medical School Admin.

Marital Status: Married, 14 yrs.-Divorced Jim Quirarte '63

Interests: My grandchildren are my favorite activity!  My friends are so special and it is nice to have the time to get together with them, our Unity church helps me stay balanced. I also enjoy knitting and reading, and especially walking the beautiful Bandon beach. I most enjoy reading historical novels and memoirs.

Additional Comments: I've had a wonderful life and continue to do so.  Although Jim and I divorced at a young age, we remained friends until his death in 04, he was only 59. He was the best father to Scott & Chris and we all miss him terribly.
I had breast cancer when I was 42...as much as I wish it hadn't happened, it forced me to say "now what" and the answers have given me the best life imaginable.  I stopped to smell the roses and haven't stopped since!  (Thanks for doing this, Steve-O!
