She enjoyed watching the fleets of ships navigate their way into the Columbia River before the Rose Bowl every year. Trantow studied nursing at Washington State University in Pullman, and found work in Vancouver. She met the love of her life at a wedding in Seattle. John Trantow was a friend of a friend who was finishing medi- cal school at the University of Washington. Trantow finally arrived to Quincy in 1957 with her husband, John, and their two oldest children, Lynn and Michael. They had two more children, Leslie and Janice, who were Quincy born. "1 believe they received a very good education. They went on to do good things. Two of my children are nurses, one is a dentist, and one is in advertising," said Trantow. Her husband, John, was a doctor in Quincy, and worked in a partnership with Dr. Stans- field. Trantow recalled how her husband was on call every other day, and every other weekend. She and the children were trained to answer the phone on the first or second ring at all hours of the day or night. Her doctor husband also made frequent house calls. "A lot of times he would have to miss weddings, fu- nerals, or even Christmas or Thanksgiving. That's just the way it was, and we didn't gripe about it," said Trantow. "We had a wonderful life. We did a lot of boating in the San Juan Islands, and we spent most summers on Lake Roosevelt, at a summer share property owned by my husband and another doctor," recalled Trantow. Above all, Trantow was glad to serve the commu- nity, and was glad to move here and raise her family. Trantow knew the Stansfields from when she went to college. "Knowing the Stanfields when I got here made it a smaller world," said Trantow. These days, she keeps busy helping out with the Chat & Knit group at The Cambridge, Tammara Green/Pos't-Register Ann Trantow came to the Quincy Valley in 1957. Tuesday coffee hours at the Grainery, and the Mary Kazda Book Club. She also donates her time and money to Quincy Allied Arts, the Reiman-Sim- mons house, and Habitat for Humanity. "The people here are won- derful. I like having all four seasons. I adjust to the heat here with air conditioning. I don't miss the rain," said Trantow. Youth Action receives recognition for efforts Members of Quincy Youth Action were recognized for the work they have done in the community to develop posi- tive programs for area youth by receiving an invitation to the Spring Youth Forum held by the state attorney general's office. The conference, which was at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grand Mound, gave the Quincy students an opportunity to pres- ent information about the effort they made during "National Drug Facts Week." During the week, Youth Action gave presentations to seventh-grade students to help them shatter myths they had about drugs and drug abuse. During the youth forum, the students were selected as finalists and received an award for their presentation. Youth Action was also pre- sented with the Bob Skidmore Recognition Award, which is presented annually to members of Grant County who are dedi- cated to preventing substance abuse through promoting healthy youth, families and communities. Youth Action members who accepted the award were Em- manuel Lopez, Ricardo Trujil- 1(3, Nohely Camacho,Elizabeth Argueta, Bereniz Reyes, Nubia Camacho, Adriana Luna, Ana Guerrero, Antonia Valenzuela and Alberto Medina.
