Lorie Walleston McMasters

Profile Updated: February 22, 2014
Residing In: Burien, WA USA
Occupation: Credit Union Specialist
Children: Have two daughters, Lisa (1967) and Chelsea (1984), five granddaughters and 1 great-granddaughter. More…We all live within a mile of each other thank goodness!
E-mail Address:



Seriously? 8000 characters? Order of drama and adventure:
1) UW from 64-66
2) Decided being a hippie was more fun-married one and had Lisa-moved into a commune against my better judgement that turned out to be a cult,
3) "Kidnapped" Lisa and got my own home-had some carefree years with rock concerts, and a love of peace love dove stuff,
4) went to school and became a Veterinary Technician-worked in research at the UW,
5) Met Chelsea's dad and became a school bus driver-drove children of kids that were in my sorority at the UW-quite strange yet interesting,
6) Moved to Eastern WA (Carlton in the Methow) on a 160 farm and waitressed at Sun Mountain Resort-had a huge vegie garden and was happy to know where everything came from when we sat down to eat,
7) Dennis and I split up two weeks before Chelsea was born and I moved back to Seattle where I got a job in a credit union and started a love affair with them that has lasted 25 years! Became an international development educator and was sent to faraway places to learn different cultures credit union challenges and find solutions.
8) Now-living the dream-loving my family and my Doxy Doodle-the only boy child (ok-fur child) in the family!
Through all these events I have to say I am most grateful to God who has protected me when I placed myself in precarious situations-that in the end helped me learn compassion, understanding and gave me a spirit of friendliness and a fairly nonjudgmental attitude towards humanity.

School Story:

I will come back to this one.

It will be good to see you again. You've had an interesting life. I can identify w/your comments about putting yourself in harm's way. I still do, so it's a wonder we're still alive. I'll be the old guy w/big ears and gray hair, although at this age that doesn't narrow it down much.
