Lonnie graduated from Mary Institute and has a Bachelor of Music degree from Washington University.
Lonnie and Bob met while she attended William Woods and were married 5 years later after his graduation from law school. During his service in the army including his year in Vietnam, Lonnie worked for a law firm in downtown St. Louis. She and Bob started their family shortly after his return from Vietnam and until Jon and Kathy were both in school all day, Lonnie was a stay-at-home mom.
Since then her professional career has been that of a legal secretary and office manager. When she retired from a 30 year relationship with another law firm, Lonnie began working for Bob and Jill and loves every minute of it. She especially loves the ability to bring their beautiful labradoodle, Jack, to work with them.
Lonnie and Bob will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in July, 2016, and hope to continue their journey for a long time. Although Lonnie has not pursued a career in the music field, she has satisfied that interest by singing in choirs and continues to entertain herself with her childhood baby grand piano.
