Jim and Mary Stuart retired in March 2018 and moved from Anderson, Indiana to the Village of Fenney. Jim retired as a Trust Investment officer at First Merchants Private Wealth Advisors. Mary retired from Medical Technology from Point of Care Lab Oversight at St Vincent Anderson and four satellite labs. Jim and Mary met at DePauw University in Indiana. They married while Jim was at the University of Illinois in law school. They have two sons, Phillip a reporter with The Villages Daily Sun and Jeff. Phill graduated from Ball State University then spent 5 years in the Navy. Jeff and his wife Ash are PhD graduates from Purdue and work at the Jet Propulsion Lab for NASA.
Jim and Mary started Line Dancing soon after their move to The Villages. Both are thankful for the training they received from Fran Whitman. When Fran was unable to teach she reached out to us. Our class has been very supportive and are glad that the Beginner Wednesday AM class at the Fenney Recreation Center is continuing. Like all who line dance each step, sequence of steps, and dance is a learning experience. Our goal is to make it fun and enjoyable to all who come.
