Sue (Buchanan) Minette
sent us an update in 2006. Excerpts:
Most of my friends know me as Susan now. My husband, Dave, to whom I have
been very happily married since 1970, and I have two children and one
beautiful granddaughter. We live in San Diego and have both recently retired.
After years of working for San Diego Unified School District as a middle
school secretary I find it difficult not to have several projects going at
the same time. I think all of those teacher, student, and parent interruptions
have given me A.D.D. I spend a big chunk of my time as a volunteer Crisis
Interventionist with the San Diego Police Department. It is rewarding to
be able to "give back".
Sue Girard sent us
an update in 2007.
Sue is retired a year ago and is still living in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
She is still swimming and cycling several times a week. She is on the
board of an art gallery where she sells her art work and photography.
She has visited Costa Rica, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, and Egypt.
Sue Heikes writes, in 2018:
I now am retired and living in beautiful Colorado and now have 4 grandchildren.
I have been in a committed relationship for 8 years. Life is wonderful. I have
really enjoyed reading all the life updates of all of you.
[Ed note: Sue Girard, two above, has the "Just part it in the middle"
style that reached its full popularity with the hippies a few years
after 1966. Sue Heikes, above, has a "beehive", the most elegant of the teased
styles. Teasing started in the late 1950's and was fading in popularity
by 1966. Sue Pemberton, below, has a "flip", as does Susan Rode, down
two. Susan Winn-Rogers, three down, has the inverse version of the
"flip". It is still around. So, in six pictures of women named Sue, you
can see what hair was like in the mid 1960's. Those three styles account
for 75% of the women's hair that year.]
Sue (Pemberton) Monteath:
Hi Everyone! Gosh where has the time gone? I am still in beautiful
Littleton Colorado, and have been since 1971. I have 6 great kids, 3
girls (married) 3 boys and 4 grandkids. They are spreading to Utah and
Arizona quickly, but one son is still in college, and the other two are
here. Tom passed away in January of 1997, and life made a 180 turn for
which I could write a book. I am working as a school secretary in an
elementary school and keep myself busy working with the youth group from
our church, but mostly re-creating the landscaping of our home, and my
new passion, flower arranging. Life never ceases to surprise me, but I
am happy and making lemonade.
Sue (Steinwandt) Weller:
I worked with handicapped children as a speech therapist for 32 years. My
husband and I retired in 2011 and moved from the Bay Area to Grass Valley,
California, where we enjoy a much quieter country life. We have 4 children
(3 sons, 1 daughter) and 7 grandchildren.
Susan (Rode) Morris lives in Berkeley and Nevada City.
She and her late husband, Don, founded Donsuemor, Inc.,
The Madeleine Cookie Company. She is a classical soprano with 10 CDs
to her credit. She has a son, Oliver, a budding scientist.

Susan Kate Winn-Rogers sent us
an update in January 2006, and
added to it in 2018. She uses "Kate" now. She was Director
of the largest medical insurance company in the UK, but has moved home.
Syd Bottomley has grown older and wiser.
I was tall, skinny, good at math, and had no social
skills. I've gotten heavier.
I graduated from UC Berkeley and became a Peace Corps Volunteer.
I taught English in Sawawak, a state of Malaysia on the island of
Borneo, for two years. The rest of my life has been dull.
My wife and I now live in Hughson, California, 12 miles
south-east of Modesto.

black-chested eagle-buzzard on my head (our daughter was a
