Since High School:


Don Radlein and Cathy (Wardyn) Lomedico met at the PTHS
40th Reunion in 2007. Funny thing is, they couldn’t remember
having any classes together back at Palatine High, and they
certainly did not hang with the same crowd ! After dancing and
talking at Dakota’s and the Lamplighter, they hit it off and had
quite a bit in common : Cathy was a widow, and Don was a
widower, and they both loved music. They decided to see each
other again, and had their first “date” when Don picked up
Cathy in his ’72 Olds Cutlass Convertible, and they went to a car
show in Batavia, followed by dinner at the Stockholm Inn in
Geneva.

After a couple of years of dating and vacationing together in
Texas, Las Vegas, Florida, and in the Rocky Mountains out
west, they were engaged. Don and Cathy were married on
August 7, 2010 at White Pines State Park near Oregon, IL. Now
Cathy’s name is Cathy Lomedico-Radlein, and they have moved
into a new house in the country near Elgin.

Since the 40th Reunion, Cathy has retired from Elgin School
District U-46, and Don has been retired from Prospect Heights
School District 23 since 2004. Don still works part-time as a
driver for an expediting company. They both enjoy taking care
of their yard and gardening, along with going to movies, eating
good food, spending time with good friends and family, and
some traveling.
