Nancy West
Residing In: Long Beach, CA USA
Occupation:In the past and at present Teacher retired
Children:How many grandchildren One daughter three grandchildren. Aaron, DJ, and Megan
Yes! Attending Reunion

Aaron is 24 and lives with me and goes to LBSU and is a junior in computer science.

School Story:What would you change about high school days?

Nothing. I thpought it was a great high school experience.

What do you do to relax these days?

Fish, read and garden. I'm a vice president in a 315 plot community garden. I garden all year round.
I travel widely and we have a Prius and travel to toToronto CD almost every year. I travel to KS by train and fly to Florida to see my brother. My sister lives in Tulsa and I drive my Dad down from Hutchinson frequently to see her and she drives up to see me when she can. She and my brother still work. I've been retired since 2002.

Have you been on TV? When? Where?

I was on Geraldo Live three years ago and on local channel 7 and on NPR and in the LA Times. I had our Prius run away with me- unintended acceleration- in July 2007 in Wisconsin. Burned up brakes trying to stop it. Car caught on fire. Was rather terrifying since I had to dodge bicycle riders down a double yellow winding road along the Wisconsin River. Stopped on level ground near an old man waiting for the mailman. He got fire extenguishers and water and we put the fire out.
Toyota wouldn't accept warranty but State farm Ins. paid it all. They didn't believe my story but after the CA highway patrolman was killed down by San Diego it all hit the news. Car hasn't done anything weird since but, I don't drive on two lane windy or mountain roads in it. I drive on the interstate where I can drive all the gas out and stop it.

Where have your travels been since the last reunion?

London, Ireland, Canada,Kentucky, Florida, Maryland, OK, AZ, NM,KS, Co,Neb, Io, In,Min., Michigan, Ill.

Attending Buhler High School 55th Reunion - Class of '61 (10/14/16)
