Provost-Peak, Connie '60CONNIE PROVOST PEAK

I married my high school sweetheart, Frosty Peak in 1959.  My first job out of high school was at Morgan’s Diamond Shop and then St. Mary’s Hospital in Enid.  After Frosty and I moved to Oklahoma City I worked for United Founder’s Life Insurance Co. and then spent a number of years working for Northwest Otolaryngology (two ear, nose and throat doctors).  I have worked for American Floral Service (AFS) which is now Teleflora (a flowers-by-wire company) for 27 years.  I have been Assistant to the Chairman of Teleflora for the past 25 years.  I obviously don’t do a lot of job hopping!

After 37 years of marriage Frosty and I divorced in 1997, but we have four wonderful children and eight terrific grandchildren.  My oldest daughter, Susan lives in Stamford, CT, my son, Brad lives in OKC, Mickie, my middle daughter lives in Tulsa and Ashlie, my youngest lives in Yukon.  My children have 2 children each – Susan has Luke (15) and Lyric (13); Brad has Zach (17) and Cole (15); Mickie has Caleb (11) and Jacob (7) and Ashlie has Randi (15) and Rachael (8).

I’ve been dating Bill Kerr (also EHS Class of 60) for about 12 years and we both plan to be at the EHS 50th Reunion.  Looking forward to seeing everyone!

 It was back on the farm after graduation.  Then in Jan of ’64 Uncle Sam decided I needed a 2 year vacation in the Army.  After I was stationed permanently in Germany I returned home to get married & take my bride, Jean, back with me for the last 14 months.  We did have a nice “honeymoon-vacation” traveling to several countries.

After returning to the farm we built our present home southwest of Lahoma in the fall of ’66.  Farming & raising polled Hereford cattle has been good to us.  I don’t go to work – I just get up & it is all around me!  Jean considers herself a “farmher”.  She is  right there beside me working cattle, hauling hay, etc.
We raised 3 beautiful daughters.
Our oldest, Sara, is married to Enid’s newest assistant Chief-of-police, Bryan Skaggs.  (hope if you meet up with him it’s a friendly matter!)  Sara is a MaryKay director.
Our middle daughter, Katie, & her husband, Eric Schiltz, live in Evergreen, CO.  He is in banking & she is in retail.
Our youngest, Penny, is an accountant busy trying to also raise a family.  Her husband, Zac Watkins, is in farming  & cattle also.  They live in Carrier, OK.  Their children are 5, 2, & 10 months.  We get to see them often & spoil them good!.
Wish I could say I’m retired but not quite yet!  We just keep busy at what we do.  The good Lord has blessed us in so many ways.  Each day is a new challenge & we definitely look to Him for our safety & protection.
Looking forward to seeing many familiar faces in Oct.

 After graduation from EHS, I attended Business College and married Alvin Kabetzke in January 1961.  We moved to Fort Sill where he was stationed in the Army.  We had two daughters, Debra and Candi, moved to California in 1963, and divorced in 1966.  I was married and widowed twice before meeting Patrick Cashin in 1992.  We were married in 1998 and live in Redondo Beach, California.  We have three grandchildren, Talia (20, Devin (20), and Christine (7).  I also have two step daughters, one step son and one step granddaughter.  Our granddaughter Talia has lived with us for the last 8 years and expects to move into her own apartment this September.

 Throughout high school, I worked for Liberty Federal Savings and The Record Shop.  After moving to California, I worked for General Telephone (now Verizon) as a repair operator.  After a couple of years, I joined my Dad’s plumbing company as their bookkeeper and office manager until 1977 when I decided to go back to school to become a Certified Public Accountant.

 Although I was unable to complete my education, I have worked for two CPA firms and have been employed by Sanders Kalvin McMillan Carter, LLP for the last 26 years.  I started with SKMC as a bookkeeper/accountant and later took on the additional responsibility of office manager.

 I have been a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica for over 25 years and have served as a Deacon, Elder and Trustee.  Pat and I have been active in the Mariners Club there (a married couples group) and have served on its board in various positions including that of “Skipper.”

 We are very active in Rotary International.  We have traveled to India to participate in Rotary’s fight to end polio and immunize all children.  We work with the local Rotarians to provide orthopedic corrective surgery for polio victims, to provide water wells, books and computers for poor rural schools, and numerous other projects.  Nothing has thrilled me more than when I got to spend time with the children undergoing surgery.  Pat has also traveled to Bangladesh, Kashmir, San Salvador, Mexico, Japan and the Philippines as a representative of Rotary for a multitude of projects.

 I look forward to meeting all of you again at our 50th Class Reunion.  Can you believe it?  I can’t possibly be that old!

After graduation I went to Oklahoma State University and completed my BS and MS in Civil Engineering.  While at OSU my wife, Jana, and I were married.  Upon graduation we moved to Texas where I worked as a structural engineer.  While in Texas I also completed my Ph.D in Civil Engineering at the University of Texas-Arlington.  Although it was not planned we moved back to Oklahoma in 1974 when I accepted a faculty position at OSU.  I retired from OSU after 35 years on the faculty of Civil Engineering.

My wife, Jana, and I were married as we both completed our bachelors’ degrees at OSU and will celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary this fall.  We have 3 sons;  a school teacher in Grapevine, Texas, a civil engineer in Irving, Texas, and an urban planner for the City of New York.  Our first grand-daughter was born in 2009.  It has been different, but nice, to have a girl in the family after raising 3 boys.

I have had a very enjoyable career and family life.  My earlier years involved the practice of engineering in the electrical power and petro-chemical industries.  My academic career was balanced between teaching and research, especially working with students.  In recent years my time has been occupied in writing textbooks.  I have 3 books published by McGraw-Hill, each with multiple editions and translations into Chinese.

The past 4 years we have enjoyed our log home, which we had built near Covington, Oklahoma.  It is located next to a pond full of fish and surrounded with lots of wild life.  We spend time at the log home and in Stillwater.  Jana and I have also enjoyed traveling in our motor home.  Now that I am retired I hope to spend more time with my earlier hobby of cars, my 1970 corvette and 1930 Model A Ford.

Unfortunately I have not done a good job of keeping contact with classmates since our graduation.  I wish all of our EHS60 graduates the very best in life.

In August of 1963, I graduated from Phillips and began my teaching career in Harper, Kansas.  Unfortunately it was with high school students and I learned very quickly that I did not like them.  The next year I moved to Wichita and beagan teaching middle school in Haysville.  I spent 6 years there and in 1970 Ron’s company moved us to Dallas.  Since then we have lived in the Dallas Metroplex in numerous places.
I married Ronald Rylander (class of ’59) in 1964.  We have one daughter, Jennifer, and 2 grandchildren.
In 2004 I decided it would be more fun to play with grandbabies than to teach, so I retired. At that point we moved from Grapevine to Aubrey, Tx.(beautiful horse ranch country).
For the last 20 years I have been working with a partner doing  “teacher training” …the state of Texas requires that all teachers have training in how to teach Gifted and Talented students..that is the training that we provide.  It keeps me busy and I enjoy the time spent with other teachers.

After graduating from Enid High, I worked a year, then, attended Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kansas where I met my husband, Paul Wiens.  We both transferred to Bethel College and were married after our Junior year.  We finished college with degrees in music in 1965.
After Paul earned a Master’s Degree in Music Education and I taught 6th grade in Tennessee, we settled in Atlanta, Georgia, where we both taught music in the Atlantic Public School System.
Our three children, Scott, Julie and Jacqui were born in Atlanta; I left public school teaching to become a mom at home who taught piano for 20 years.  We left Atlanta, trekked through Kansas to Iowa where Paul earned a Doctorate in Choral Conducting.
Moving on to Madison, Wisconsin, I continued to teach piano and be the Mom at home while Paul taught at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  After 3 years, he accepted a position at the Wheaton College Conservatory.
After moving to Wheaton, IL, I once again taught piano.  However, when our kids were in high school and college, it became apparent that the time had come to respond to a call to ministry; I began seminary and graduated in 1990 with an M.Div. from Bethany Theological Seminary.  Although we were in the Mennonite Church at the time, I was called into the Episcopal Church where I completed Anglican Studies and was ordained a priest in 1994.
For 15 years, I served as Chaplain at Rush University Medical Center, first as Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplant Chaplain and later as Chaplain of the Surgical Intensive Care unit.  During that time, shortly after 9/11 I was named Chair of the Psychosocial Emergency Preparedness Team, a group healthcare professionals responsible for emergency psychosocial services in the event of a major crisis.  I held that position concurrently with chaplaincy until I retired from Rush in 2007.
Currently, I serve as priest and pastor for St. Barnabas in the Dunes Episcopal Church, at the base of Lake Michigan in Indiana (
My children are all married and we have six beautiful grandchildren; our daughter Julie is expecting a baby and this will bring the number to 7 . . . the number for perfection!  They all live out of state so the older ones fly, summers, sans parents, to Wheaton from Portland OR for Granny and Granddad Camp!  The younger ones come another time, from Clearwater, Fl and Logan Utah, with their parents for Jr. Granny and Granddad Camp.  Life is rich and fulfilling!  God is good!Flaming, Wiems, Delores '10

Cole Schultz, Mary

Cole, Schultz, Mary '60 My 50 Year Journey




Mary Cole Schultz



The day after receiving my M.S. in Nursing at the University of Colorado in 1965, I rolled my Volkswagen 5 times at 65 mph outside of Denver. My sister Ruth and her friend Sally traveling behind me saw it all! The car was totaled. Even though I wore no seat belt, only the palm of my right hand got injured from embedded glass.

Released from the emergency room with my right hand wrapped like a boxing glove, I could have headed immediately to Enid with Ruth and Sally. I did not. My father asked me to wait; he wanted to drive me home. The previous year Connie Gibson who had ridden in my new VW to Denver and typed all my term papers allowed me to stay with her.

Before my father and I returned to Enid, he wanted to see my wrecked car. I regret, though, I went to see it. When I saw my flattened vehicle, I realized then that I should not have lived but died! In my weakened moment fear entered me with great force. I believed in the next accident that I would die!

Three years later in Oklahoma City a lady ran into my car as I – a public health nurse – was on my way to see a patient. I began to experience abdominal pain. For 6 months the doctor said there was nothing wrong with me; I believed him.

My husband’s job transfer to Columbus, Ohio, saved me. Upon arriving there, I was seriously ill. The internist gave me the terrible news that I had ulcerative colitis and needed a colostomy. I was terrified! I was only 26 and had been married only 2 years. I wept! The doctor had mercy. He said, “Let’s try the right medicine since you never got it.”

GOD was merciful! The next test 4 months later showed I had recovered. The doctor warned me, though, this would only betemporary and to expect setbacks.

For the next 7 years I struggled with the diagnosis and fear of a permanent setback. It was a move to San Antonio that changed the course of the illness and my life. My new, young internist – Dr. Dennis Murphree – had been out of medical school only a few years. I deeply cared about him and his future because I was changing spiritually.

Four years earlier my beloved Christian father had died unexpectedly with a heart attack. I was temporarily very angry with GOD! My dad had only retired 6 weeks and never got to experience his dreams.

Seeing my great sorrow, my caring husband gave me a small book entitled The Twenty-Third Psalm for Today compiled and illustrated by Royal V. Carley. The book was simple; it consisted of Bible verses. Now I began to study the Bible verses seriously. For every day growing up the Bible had been read at mealtime and bedtime. I had not really listened as I should, but now I did. GOD began to be real to me in a personal way!

I had experienced GOD one time in a trying ordeal at C.U.! I had one semester left before graduation. When I got my grades from the previous semester, I learned that my “A” in Epidemiology and my “A” in Psychology were now both “C’s”. To graduate with a Master’s I could have only 6 hours. I had met my quota!

I confronted the professors. One was on the main campus at Boulder and the other was at the Medical Center in Denver. Their answer was identical. “Your handwriting is not acceptable for a graduate student”.

I didn’t know what to do! I was caught. There was one thing I wouldn’t do! I would not call home and tell my father. He would say “Mary, come home and go to Bible College and become the missionary that you promised GOD”.

I decided to do what I saw my dad do daily – pray in the hall closet off my sister Millie and my bedroom. The master bedroom that I rented did not have a walk-in-closet. That week day I went to the First Christian Church that I attended and knelt at the back pew and cried my heart out to GOD with my problem. “If I stay and one more professor gives me a “C”, I won’t graduate. If I quit now, it is all over for me in getting my Master’s”. GOD gave me the answer, “Stay”.

These encounters – my father’s death, 2 car accidents, and an almost missed Master’s Degree – now had me concerned for this young physician and not me. My yearly colon exam was due in a few weeks – the middle of August. I began to pray that somehow I could share JESUS with him. To do my part I decided to eat one raw carrot stick and 1 raw celery stick daily. Ihadn’t done this before because of fear of a setback. Now I charged ahead although at times I wanted to quit! When I did, I turned to GOD for courage and strength.

I never dreamed it but the impossible happened! GOD restored my colon back to normal! So much so that the doctor confronted me, “You never had ulcerative colitis! Your colon is perfectly normal.”

I responded, “Yes I did! You can write Dr. Richard E. O’Brien, 363 East Town Street, Columbus, Ohio. He will tell you thetruth!”

Even with this blessing, I still battled tiredness and fatigue. October 21, 1976 – 10 days before my 34th birthday – I asked GOD for strength to get out of bed to take care of our pets, our home, and myself. October 29th, 1976, HE granted my request.

On Tuesday, November 30th, 1976, my husband was dressing for work. As I adjusted his collar to cover his tie, I said, “Honey, GOD has healed me over and above what I asked. I want to be a writer for GOD and tell the world of HIS LOVE”. Although no one has ever bought one of my writings, I keep at it.

In March 2003, GOD laid on my heart to write a musical play. I have to admit at times I doubted HIS calling and put it aside. Yet, now I am almost finished with the rough draft of the play. Then, I’ll have to decide where to put the songs that HE has laid on my heart. There is still a lot of hard work, but I want to do HIS will!

My prayer, most of all, is that GOD the loving Heavenly FATHER is real to you. HE loves you. HIS SON died for your sins. Ask for forgiveness, accept JESUS as your SAVIOR and LORD, and receive eternal life. Heaven, then, will be your future home.

Looking forward to seeing you – my classmates

The LORD willing

Perhaps, U are concerned about our nation’s future as I am. There is hope because of GOD! He has said, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land”.

2 Chronicles 7:14 – Bible (from “New International Version”)

Our country needs GOD’S healing! In the pledge of allegiance we say we are “one nation under GOD”. May our actions reflect our devotion to the almighty GOD and not evil.

Greatest Personal Achievement


The week of Thanksgiving 1974 my husband and I moved to Oaks

North Mobile Home Estates. From 1988-2002 I taught these children and youth about GOD’S love both at our home and church. The musical play is about this adventure that GOD allowed me to experience. It is the highlight of my life!

Thanks for taking the time to read of my experiences.

May GOD bless you in a special way today.
