Newspaper production, UU Church office manager Married 2
Deceased Nov 2013

(Updated 7-4-12)

My oldest daughter, Bethany graduated from CSUN with a marketing major and a minor in art. She recently found her "dream job" working in the art department of ETS Express in Oxnard.
My youngest daughter, Jenn was working for my father, helping him out with meals and such. He just turned 86 and is currently in a care facility here in Santa Paula, so Jenn is out job hunting.
 I'm still working at the local paper and volunteering at the local theater. I just finished directing a one-act on our back stage, a newer role for me there.
I'm also working at the Universalist Unitarian Church here in Santa Paula as office manager, fitting that schedule between my days at the newspaper. I can't get away from computers in my jobs, and I love it!
I continue on the Blanchard Community Library board, serving out my current term. We've been having fun with a couple of Saturday work parties, helping process books, and also had a book mending workshop that was informative and fun.
I also just was elected to the board of my church's Pacific Southwest District (Southern California, Arizona and part of Nevada). With its geography, I'm grateful most of our meetings take place by phone, considering my hectic schedule.
Dennis is still working for Durham Bus Services in Oxnard. He drives a "little bus", carrying kids with disabilities. He's really great with the kids!
In my spare time I sometimes pick up my knitting - still just doing the basics. Then there's the occasional puzzle magazine.
I'm still a fan of Facebook (with all its warts and flaws) and am having fun connecting with people (including classmates) there. And then there's my book habit. Thank goodness for the library, because I couldn't afford it otherwise! ;-)
I'm finally getting more "silver" streaks in my hair, threads among the brown. I told my daughter when it turns white I'll dye a streak turquoise and shock all the youngsters! That may be awhile yet, but it's something to look foward to! I embrace eccentricity, as that looks to be the most fun way to get older! Now what will I do for my next tattoo?

November 13, 1949 retired bookkeeper & cafe owner Single Again 6

I live in Santa Barbara, in a house my father built with his own 2 hands. What could be better?  I missed the fires of2008. The "Tea fire" was named for the stone arch "tea house" on a big estate in Montecito, that my grandpa built. He, my grandma and their 4 kids lived and worked there. I have 1 natural son and 5 step-sons that I raised(married a widower the second time around). I'm just a simple person who likes to see the cheery side of life. I would really like to hear from my old classmates. Please call or write. If you're up this way, I'd be happy to show you the sights. Call me 805-965-1585 or carol.smaniotto@cox.net.

December 04, 1948 Retired Single Again

I retired on December 11, 2010, after 30 years with Ventura County.  

In September 2010, I went on a cruise to Alaska for a pre-celebration of my retirement and a post-celebration of our friend Katie's retirement.  A friend Claire and my sister Lesley, also went with us.  We had a fabulous time.  Alaska is beautiful.


In 2011, I took a road trip with my friend Katie.  We drove to Oregon to see a friend and my sister.  On the way, we stopped at other friends to visit too.  We took Highway 1 home and it was fantastic! 

In November 2012 a friend and I flew to England and stayed with friends in Thornbury.  We had so much fun.  I met them in 2004 thru The Red Hat Society and they invited us to their town.  I drove from London to Thornbury, with a stop in Bath.  That was an experience!  My sister, a friend and I sailed on the Queen Mary 2 from England to NYC.  We now have a good friendship with our England friends.  They came to see us in 2011 and a friend and I visited them in 2012.  They drove us all over showing their beautiful country for 9 days.  Then Katie and I stayed 6 days in London.  So much to see.  I am ready to go again. 

I love travling and still want to visit Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal and more.


My sister Lesley and I also plan trips and are called "The Traveling Sisters". 

Stay well and happy!  Looking forward to seeing you all at our 50th VHS Reunion in August 2017.

I hope to make it to the reunion this year.  It's still up in the air.  I have two wonderful daughters and I am a grandmother of two boys and one baby girl.  I was in Ventura for a month in Oct '06 and in Jan '06.  I have lived in Arkansas for 40 years. I miss Ventura.   We have 32 acres and a huge home for sale and plan on moving to Fayetteville, Arkansas soon.  When I moved to Arkansas in 1966, one semester shy of getting to graduate with everyone, I lost contact with everyone.  I really hope to see everyone in August.  Top of my list.  Be well, love the life you have and laugh when you can.
Can someone tell me more about Carla Smith (Houston)?  When she passed or where?
Thanks
Dixie

Forty-five! Let's go. Do it until the last one standing. Then he or she can stand alone, raise a drink to the sky, and give a hearty toast to all the others who have moved on. Send Danny a MessageSend Danny a Message
