Dianne Petrey

My name is Dianne Petrey. I was born in Williamson, West Virginia; a small coal-mining town in southern West Virginia in 1960. I am the youngest of 8 children from Walter and Ruby Walker. I have two kids, David (29 years old) and Courtney (23 years old). Both of my kids are in graduate school; David in medical school and Courtney in Physical Therapy School. I am currently living in Lexington, Kentucky with my current husband, Calvin Petrey. I have been married 4 times and have lived in Kentucky for more than 20 years and also lived in Oklahoma for 10 years. I am an Application Support Specialist and trainer for a large law firm in Lexington (for the past five years), and have spent most of my career in the computer support arena. I have taken several writing courses over the past 5 years and am currently working on writing my memoir. I have recently had 2 deaths in my family (my brother, who was 8 years older than me) and my brother in law (8 years older). I am very close to my sisters and we have had an annual 'girls week' get-together for the past 20 years. My mother is 92 years old and is still a large part of my life. She has been a stable person in my 51 years and has always been there for me when no one else was. I would like to leave a memorable history to my children and grand-children someday with a memoir of my life, whether it ever be published.
