Kathy Mitchell, daughter of longtime Pleasanton resident Alfred Mitchell and the late Marilyn Mitchell, in engaged to marry Bob Simpson, son of Gene and Rita Simpson of Viola, Ark., formerly of Pleasanton.
The couple were friends and second-grade classmates at Alisal Elementary School in 1972-73 and graduated from Amador Valley High School in 1983. They were reconnected on Facebook, thanks to a mutual friend's "friend suggestion."
Bob lives and works in Denver, and Kathy lives in Pleasanton and teaches in Brentwood. The two are planning a fall wedding in Pleasanton.
