Teresa (Terri) Lively: I married shortly after high school and had two beautiful
children: my daughter Alice, born in 1967, is a geriatric physician; my son David,
born in 1970, is a successful entrepreneur. I returned to school, divorced, and
finished my BA at San Francisco State in 1977. I became a bilingual teacher,
met my husband, Lee Genz, in 1980, resigned from teaching in 1993, went to grad
school and earned a Ph. D in clinical psychology. I currently have a very full
private practice in Santa Cruz which is eminently satisfying - I cannot yet
imagine retiring! I feel most fortunate to have great relationships with my
husband, both children, their spouses (each of whom live within 7 minutes of
us!) and my grandson, Christopher, who brings us much joy and keeps us on our
toes!! The past 50 years have held their challenges yet, overall, it has
definitely been a rich and satisfying life!
Tillman Sherman sent us an
update in February 2009. He writes: I am
semi-retired now. Living in San Andreas, California with the love of
my life, Sharon Romano. I worked in groceries for many years then moved
on to the State of California. Sharon has a consulting business,
so let her know if you need a website for your business.
Sharon has two daughters and I have two sons; we have four grandkids.
[Ed. Note: Tillman and his wife coordinated our 2001 and 2006 class reunions. TP]
Dr. Tina West sent us
an update in 2006.
She went to the University of Nevada, pledged Kappa Alpha Theta,
got her teaching credential, worked as a missionary and spent a
couple of years in Rome. She lost a job when the Shah of Iran fell.
Now she is a pediatric Chiropractor. She has a web site,

Tom Pack -
Tom lives in Patterson, California. He taught 6th grade for years.
He answers his E-mail every Tuesday, unless there is a good
game on that night.
Toni (Machado) Wells -
Married Gilbert Wells (CVHS 1965) who passed away in 1992. Two children,
Todd and Keri, and one grandson, Gabe (the joy of my life). Employed with
San Mateo County Office of Education as a secretary from 1969-1980. Then
worked 25+ years as a computer programmer with BART. Retired in August 2005
and moved to Southern California to be with my high school sweetheart, with
whom I had reconnected in 2003. After more than 5 years, we finally moved
in together, which lasted a year before we realized that wasn't the best
thing for the relationship and we parted as friends in 2010.
The next chapter in my life involved a move to San Diego to care for my
parents. Sadly, we lost them both within a year of each other as so often
happens when a couple has been together 65 years. That loss was lessened
somewhat with the arrival of two new grandsons, identical twins Aiden and
Owen, who are amazing little people. Still not ready for the front-porch
rocker, I have returned to work in the Family Law Department for the Superior
Court of California in Orange County.
2019 update: Two more children added to my daughter's family: Addison Marie
and Connor James. Retired from second career with Orange County Superior
Court in 2018. Bought a condo last year halfway between my son in Menifee and
daughter in Escondido and now spend my days watching grandson Gabe play baseball
for his high school team and walking my French Bulldog, "Bubba", around the
Valorie Dommes has grown older and wiser.
Vibeke Joergensen wrote, in April 2010,
Ever since I was a foreign exchange student at CVHS I have stayed in
contact with my host family, and over the years I have spent several
vacations in California. I always enjoy being back. So if any of you
should feel like it, you are welcome to contact me.

Wayne Stafford sent us an
Update in September 2016. He writes
"Teri and I are having more fun than should be legally allowed."
There's more, plus a picture of Wayne and the airplane he is building.
Joined the Marines and spent a tour in Vietnam. Got out and spent a couple
of years at Torrance / Redondo / Hermosa Beach growing long hair and
studying to be a hippie. Flunked. Found the right girl on the third try
and started a computer networking company before it was popular. Moved
to Seattle in November 2005.
