Over the 65 years we have been married, we have lived in five different states. Wayne has been a builder of houses, silos and roads, and now enjoys woodcarving at The Resort.
Lois was a clerk at JC Penney, a ladies’ dress shop, manager of 50 apartments and owned a café with her sister. We have been campers for 55 years, coming to The Resort with a trailer, and four years later bought a park model.
We have lived through a tornado that took 13 lives and a flood that took our home. We have lived at the The Resort for 29 years and have made oh so many friends.
Leonard & Dorothy Barlow
Len and Dorothy met while attending high school in the farming community of Sunnyside, Washington. They became engaged and were married on March 29th of 1953 while Dorothy was still a Senior in high school and Len had been drafted to serve in the US Army during the Korean War.
After Len was discharged from the Army he attended the University of Washington and graduated with a BSEE degree in 1959.
Dorothy gave birth to three daughters while Len was in college. Later a son was born. (The son died of muscular dystrophy at age 21.) They have five grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
Len worked for Boeing for 30 years as an Engineer and Test Manager supporting NASA and US Airforce Space and Defense Programs, including ten years on the Space Shuttle Program.
Len retired in 1989 and they bought a 5th Wheel trailer home. They traveled to Arizona and checked into Superstition Country RV Resort, now known as “The Resort.”
They are currently spending their 28th winter at The Resort and with neighbors Wayne and Lois and Moe and Phyllis are enjoying their 65th year of marriage.
