Today, the three-time Carol Awards finalist lives outside Columbus with her husband, Richard. After growing up and graduating from high school in St. John, Mich., Obenhaus felt she had the skills she needed to enter the workforce. She’d learned ten-key, shorthand, and typing to get an administrative job. With the job market in Michigan not great, she moved to Texas in 1982. After getting married, she became a stay-at-home mom. “That was really what my dream was,” Obenhaus says.
