I am a Montana native. Family and community are very important to me. I have been happily married for 26 years to Michael Songstad. We have 3 children, John Michael, Alexander and Anthony. I love spending time with these men. We love camping, fishing and gatherings at our home.
I don’t feel that I have hobbies. Some things that are a part of me and my life are working in my beautiful yard, gardening, painting, traveling, canning and pickling food every fall. I can knit, crochet and sew anything and can play any brass instrument. I do crafts of all sorts. I am an avid reader and have books everywhere. And I love to laugh.
I have had the privilege to be able to work with children of all ages. I have enjoyed serving the community and supporting the youth as a coach, preschool teacher and school trustee.
I am active in the Joliet LION’s Club, St. Luke Episcopal Church and will help anyone with just about anything.
