March 18 Intergenerational Women’s Breakfast
Women from high school through elderhood are warmly invited to share breakfast and connections on Saturday, March 18, from 9:00 AM to noon. In addition to a delicious morning meal, UUC’s own Virginia Stout will present her spiritual odyssey – the story of the formative elements of her life, the soul journey that has made her who she is and sustains her now. We’ll have the opportunity to consider our own life stories and talk with one another about the meaningful turning points (past, present and future) that shape our decisions, careers, personalities, activism, families, friendships, beliefs and spiritual paths.
About our speaker: After a B.A. at Cornell University Virginia Stout did doctoral studies for 3 years at Harvard, before moving to Zurich, Switzerland, for a year with her husband Hugh Stout, and then coming to Seattle. In 1961 she completed her Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry at UW. Her son Peter was born in 1963 and now lives in San Jose, CA. For 30 years she did research for the NOAA Fisheries Lab., on pollution in marine fish and separations of omega-3 fatty acids. She met her 2nd husband, Bill Sieverling, a longtime UUC member, at a UU singles weekend. After marrying, they grew a blended family of his twins, Lisa and Eric, who live in the Seattle area, and Peter. At 55 she enrolled at Antioch Seattle; in 1991 she earned an MA in Psychology with a concentration in Counseling and Adult Development. After retiring from NOAA she set up a private practice focusing on scientists, engineers and health-care professionals until 2011. She’s learning to live with Multiple Myeloma and enjoys Scandinavian dancing, bird watching and reading.
