OUR FAMILY

Mark and Guia enjoying some pizza.

Guia and Mark met in 1980 during his two year Peace Corps tour in the southern Philippines. They worked together in the areas of nutrition and sanitation. When Mark left the Philippines he moved to the community of Stelle, Illinois (two miles north of the Greenhouse B&B). Guia later brought the children to the U.S. and we lived in Stelle until moving in 1986 to the farmhouse that is now the B&B.

 

Our four children are now spread around the country. Our oldest daughter, Queenie lives in St. Louis and works as a computer consultant.  Our second daughter, Charmaine lives in Orlando and works in the computer department at Lockheed Martin. Our youngest daughter, Christine and her husband Mark live in Fort Collins, Colorado.  Christine works for the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences. Our son Warren also lives in Fort Collins, Colorado with his wife Sarah and installs electric generators, while spending as much time as possible fishing and enjoying the mountains.
