Green Arrow Winner – Enjoying the Retirement Years
Leader Staff Writer
Retirement has been bliss for Ken “Red” and Eunice Hight of Thatcher as they spend their free time working in their yard, tending to their flower beds and enjoying time with family.
For the past 25 years the Hights have called Thatcher home. Eunice was born in Tremonton, but traveled a bit until settling with her husband, Red, into an acre of land. Red is from Wyoming, and spent his life working and living on farms.
“We’ve had a good life,” Red said. Red and Eunice have been married for 43 years and have four children, nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Both have a love for gardening and working in the yard.
“It’s just a part of who we are,” Eunice said.
They have several different varieties of flowers in the yard, including roses of different colors, daisies, daffodils and tulips. They have a vegetable garden where they grow tomatoes, peppers, corn, potatoes, radishes, carrots and parsnips. Eunice likes to can the produce and enjoy them throughout the year.
“I even made V-8 juice. It was so much fun finding a recipe,” she said.
