It took me seven years, but I finished my bachelors in history from Northridge in 1979. I wanted something different and landed in Vancouver, Washington working in magazine distribution. In 1984 I received an offer for a sales job in Del Mar, and I spent three years tanning and cheering on the horses. In 1987 I received a letter from a former beau who regretted letting me get away, and a year later we were married. After moving back to Los Angeles, I began working for the City and eventually wound up at the Airport Department as their legislative analyst and City Council liaison. I left early when my husband made his retirement. In 1999 we moved to our 40-acre homestead in the mountains of Mendocino County. We live happily in God’s creation with our German Shepherd, Blackjack.
I’m active in conservative politics. In 2010 I self-published “Tea Party: American Revolution” through Amazon. A moderate success with 600 books sold through Tea Party group meetings and rally speeches. I have also published a dozen articles with the National Catholic Register. For twenty years I have been a regular poster on the third-highest rated news aggregate site, Lucianne, under the name “Timber Queen”.
I taught religious education and converts for twenty years, retiring from both five years ago. It appears the Covid lockdown is going to be the natural end of our other parish ministries. My husband was serving Mass and as a Eucharistic Minister, but now at 76 he feels he’s aged out of it. I’m feeling the same about being a lector and Eucharistic Minister myself as well. It’s getting harder to make the 9:00 Mass with town a half hour away. Saturday Vigil is easier on the old bones! I’ll remain the vice-president of the Ladies Guild and dedicated to our Wednesday night Eucharistic Holy Hour. I am ever grateful for my Catholic childhood and education.
God bless the Alemany Class of 1972.

After Alemany off to college for an engineering degree. With the exception of a couple years in aerospace I've been in the medical device industry almost my entire career. Love the challenge and feels good to get a product to market that may help a few folks. The work was split between Orange County and San Diego county where I'm at now. Still a gearhead, won't ever get that out of my system. Taking time now to enjoy friends, what little family I have left, hot rods and motorcycles. Hope you guys have a great time at the party.

After the Naval Academy, I married our classmate Sharon Bergstrom and headed to San Diego for sea duty. We liked San Diego and I was able to land a job there after active duty. While working, I attended law school at night and, then, practiced as an outside lawyer. Eventually I moved in-house with a software company (Intuit) where I held various positions over a 20 year career. Since retiring, I have stayed active with some IRS advisory committees and as an IRS volunteer tax preparer. I’m also a volunteer with the Naval Academy’s Admissions Department working with candidates in Imperial County. Sharon and I stay busy with our 4 kids and their families! Otherwise, I just do what Sharon tells me to do...

After finishing Alemany, I attended UC Irvine and graduated in 1976 with a BA in Social Ecology. Just a few weeks later, I married our classmate, Phil Poirier. We moved to San Diego shortly after our marriage and have made our home there for over 45 years raising 3 sons and 1 daughter. During that time, I attended CSU San Marcos to obtain a teaching credential. This ultimately led to a job in the Poway School District where I had a Special Education classroom teaching primarily at the elementary level for 20 years. Upon retirement 10 years ago, I focused my energy on my aging parents along with making myself available for our 10 grandchildren, four of whom live in the area. Phil and I have had a blessed life. Currently we are getting back on track with family, travel and assorted interests and hobbies!

I've spent quite some time this past year looking at our old yearbooks and trying to remember those days 50+ years ago. Being on the committee to plan the 50 year reunion has brought a lot of memories back. The best part has been making connections with people I haven't talked to in a long, long time - and maybe didn't even really talk to that much when we were in high school! And that's why I hope a lot of people will think about coming to this reunion - we have that shared experience in common and then a lifetime in between to talk about.
I have spent most of my adult life teaching others - 36 of those years teaching middle school science. I loved my career but was excited to be able to retire when I was 60 and start a whole new adventure into art. Now I am painting watercolors and teaching art classes. Life is good.
I am married to my husband, Tim Cohen, and we have two adult children and two darling grandsons. I will fill you in on the rest of the story when I see you on August 13!

I was one of three juniors who were allowed to graduate a year early, so many of you may not remember me. I was on your prom committee so, one of my fondest memories was of me driving my mother's Plymouth station wagon filled with decorations to the Long Beach Pier to decorate the Queen Mary. Me and the girls on the committee stayed long enough to see some of the first guests arrive and I remember seeing Colleen the prom queen and her date. I was so focused on getting out of high school and into college that I did not take the time to create memories, so I am hoping that I will get a second chance some 50 years later at this reunion!
