Marital Status: Divorced/Remarried
Spouse Name: Mark
Children: one stepson, David (5/23/84)
Occupation: This year begins my 34th year as a teacher in Lancaster, CA
Comments: I am very fortunate to teamteach 6th grade, at New Vista Middle School, with my very best friend and husband, Mark. When we are not teaching or in Palmdale, with our 4 dogs and bird, we all pile into the truck and head up to our get-away along the Kern River in Kernville. If you ever find yourself in Kernville, go into the store Lah-de-dahs, by the post office, and I have 4 sections in there all with the very clever name of "Michele's Corner." If you can't make it to Kernville, please visit my on-line store by the same name Use discount coupon code 1968, and I'll be happy to give you a 15% discount. It saddens me so whenever I log-in again and see that another one of our class has gone home to be with the Lord. I agree with so many others regarding there's no way that we can be this old. Sometimes during lunch, at school, I'll check this site to see who has been added, and there never fails to be giggles and one or two students patting me on the shoulder or giving me a hug, and telling me that I couldn't possiblly be that old. I do love my 6th graders. I plan to teach for only 3 more years when I'll be sixty. My spirit is still very young, but approximately 35 students per year for 34 years has worn me out just a tad. Take care everyone. [7/8/07]

Occupation:Occupation: Driver of modern day version of a stagecoach. Actor, server, bartender. Professional train robber (following in the footsteps of mycousins, Frank and Jesse James.) at CAC Transportation dba Central Oregon Breeze Crooked River Dinner Train!
Comments: I have been very fortunate in having "jobs" that I like to do and look forward to doing them everyday and get paid to do them. It has always been my philosophy that if I'm not having fun doing something, I will change that in a hurry and go do something that I do like. That is why I never wanted to be a doctor or lawyer or some other similar "high-paying" vocation. I haven't found too many outfits that will actually pay me to go rob a train on horseback and "hoorah" the passengers. Guess I still haven't "grown-up" yet. Life is too short and you only go 'round once so you better enjoy it while and when you can. [December 6, 2006

Valerie Clarke

Valerie Clarke was listed in the 20-year reunion booklet as having passed away. However, no details were given as to what she had been doing with her life at the time or how she died. We've had requests from alumns for more information. If you have anything you can add, write to the webmaster to have it posted here.

Her friend Millie (Clark) Meier wrote: "Valerie had been fighting cancer all her life. I understand she was still a college student when cancer finally took her life." If you can add any more, please write. Thank you, Millie.

Tacey Clausen wrote on May 5, 2008: I had the good fortune to sit next to Valerie Clarke in a few classes, due to our alphabetical closeness. In 8th grade math she told me her father had died of cancer when she was in elementary school. I was so amazed at her stoicism and at the same moment a sweet smile. Later (I wish my "time" memory were more clear), she told me her younger brother had cancer and had died. It was just after college upon a visit to L.C. that I heard Valerie had died. At the 30th Reunion I put "my" nametag on; Rick Mallory walked up and gasped putting his hand over the name tag. He told me I had Valerie's tag on; as we headed out to find mine he turned and said "Maybe this was her way of reminding us she is here." I believed him then and I believe it now. I think to the Crescenta Valley class of '68, Valerie's presence will always be felt and forever revered. --Tacey Clausen May 5, 2008 (If anyone has more facts or a better memory please feel free to add or correct. TC

I lived next door to Valerie and she was one of my best friends. She was the most courageous person I ever knew. I never heard her say "why me" or complain about any of the tragedies and illnesses in her life.
Her father died of a brain aneurysm when she was in 5th or 6th grade. Her mother died of cancer the week before she graduated from high school (the day Bobby Kennedy died). She had her leg amputated when she was in the 4th grade and her mother fought to allow her to continue going to school at Dunsmore, instead of going to a special school for handicapped. She had a stomach tumor removed in 5th or 6th grade, and 7 brain tumors removed in 6 surgeries in jr high and high school.
I was lucky enough to go to summer school with her on Kauai the summer of 1967. We had a ball and that summer is still one of my best memories.
She went to college and moved back to Glendale. She was married when she died in 1976 from cancer.
Her brother and sister are still alive, and living in northern California. Her sister was looking for pictures and memories of Val. Contact me at if you have photos, memories or questions. She loved her years at CV and her friends and classmates were very important to her. She was an amazing person. --- Linda Beirdneau, May 2, 2010

I have attended a few of the choral programs of the Alumni Choir, when I have been back in Glendale, let me tell they are realy good. You should go see them perform whenever you get a chance.

Occupation: Currently - Clinical Information Systems Analyst/End User Support at North Hawaii Community Hospital, Phoenix Health Systems
Comments:  Aloha everyone!  Happened on this website totally by accident!  Have not been to a CVHS reunion since the 5-year at the Queen Mary!  Just to catch you up…as a couple of you know, I went to college in Northern California (Chico State University) and in 1977 moved to Hawaii.  Still here after 33 years.  Most of my work life has been centered around private-non profits, working with people with special needs, but in '97 I made a move and took a job at a beautiful little hospital in North Hawaii. Work there has morphed from working as a co-leader of the Physical Rehab Department to a Special Projects Coordinator and finally landing (surprisingly) in at outsourced I.T. Department.  It's been a journey!  On the personal side, I met my husband (of 25 years now) here in Hawaii.  He was the roommate of my best friend and they lived in a great little beach house right down on Alii Drive in Kailua-Kona.  We've had a lot of fun together over the years, living very simply (sometimes without electricity or county water) but always comfortably in natural surroundings.  Finally built our "new" house in Kaloko Mauka a few years ago with "the works"…electricity, county water indoor plumbing and everything, but I'd have to say we were probably just as happy in our more rustic abodes without the mortgage! OK!  That's about it…the compressed story of my post-graduate life!  If any of you feel the urge to contact me…I'd love that!  Until then, A hui hou!  MJ (Ellison) Hill

Neal Ferrara

died in '95 while building a cabin in Frazier Park, CA. Apparently, a large log fell on him as it was either being cut or moved. I am not sure he even graduated from CV, but please check; he was a great guy. He was a pastor on sabbatical when the accident occured. He is survived by his lovely wife, Toni and probably some children I never met.

Remembered by his childhood friend, Jim Robinson

Occupation: I have my own small business I provide business consulting/political consulting and I also work for Century 21 Professionals as a realtor. I am an Irvine City Councilwoman and now running for Mayor of this outstanding community
Reunion: Please post your emails and your phone numbers so we can keep in touch
Comments: Thank you so much for coming to Irvine and for making our reunion so great. I had such fun and I am really sad it was over so quickly. I like to run, usually 25 miles a week, I play basketball with my young grandsons, I love to read, mostly biographies, cook, clean (I love to clean, funny ugh?). Not obsessive though! I go to the movies with my mom; we love that -- "Mama Mia" most recently cute movie. I am a Christian and work hard to be the best person I can be, however, with still many faults which I am trying to work on. I have attended almost every reunion, except perhaps one. I am sad every time they end, as the time is too short to reconnect and then lose you for another ten years. Can we try this every 5 years? Loved seeing all of you this weekend; sorry I couldn't talk to all of you. Please email Christina -- Christina

Comments: Now that I can finially order off the senior menu at Denny's, thankfully life is mellowing out. I have been a professional driver since I got out of the Coast Guard in 1972.

Raised 3 kids over 20 odd years, was sucessful with 2: Misty class of 2000 and Michael class of 2003, and divorced the third one in 1999. Serendipity is a good thing. Minding my own business and heard from my first girlfriend after I got out of the service. Debbie Mardis class of 1972 was the elevator operator at Webb's Dept. Store in Glendale and I was in Men's Wear. We dated on and off for a few years. Having logged a few years and hopefully older and wiser, I now see what a wonderful girl I missed.

Lesly Wells Vick, a childhood friend who went to Verdugo Woodlands school with her until her family moved to La Crescenta around junior high, writes: "Christine died of liver failure and had been married to her second husband until he died. We all grew up together in the Glendale Hills. Her middle sister, Kathy Hood Forsman (1969) is still alive and she and her husband just moved to Maui. However, the youngest sister, Robin Hood, died several years ago, although I have no details about her death. I will ask Kathy to send in more facts about the loss of both of her siblings. --Lesly Wells Vick [October 19, 2009]

Comments: We moved to Kansas in June 1999 after living in Lancaster for a number of years. It was quite a culture shock going from the busyness of the L.A. area to rural Kansas. But I love the wide-open spaces and the four seasons. I travel back to So Cal twice a year for graduate school. It's nice to visit, but the flatlands of Kansas are much more enticing.

Comments: Great to find this site, lots of us are missing though. Sorry to see so many having passed on.

I am the youngest daughter of Brad Kuch and i was looking through Google and came across this picture of him and this website he is on. I wanted to inform his fellow classmates of his recent condition, wherefore im sure they would appreciate this information knowing that he has kept in touch with a few of them after all these years. He was diagnosed with glioma brain cancer on November 16, 2006. He struggled through and battled six long hard months of this cancer before it recently took his life. He took his final breath on May 22, 2007 at 7:23 pm with his wife and seven kids surrouding him. He was a very strong-willed person and fought this battle very courageously. He lived a wonderful life and raised a beautiful family. He will be forever missed.

Gail as a junior from the 1967 annual, thanks to the work of Carolyn Ingram in finding this picture

Gail Lymp

Gail Lymp was listed in the 20-year reunion booklet as having passed away. However, no details were given as to what she had been doing with her life at the time or how she died. We've had requests from alumns for more information. If you have anything you can add, write to the webmaster to have it posted here.

On Dec. 3, 2005, Terry Petapiece remembered: "I don't remember the details, however, I sadly recall Gail Lymp was killed in an automobile accident (in her VW bug) descending over one of the "blind bumps" near the top of Pennsylvania Ave. or Lowell around her senior year"

Gail was involved in an automobile accident in March of 1967. She was a passenger in a VW bug and the accident occurred near the top of Ramsdell. She was just 16 years old. She is buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park Hollywood Hills.

I visit her grave from time to time.
