Occupation: Retired
Children: Kevin A. Daly born March 1967
Melanie E. Daly born March 1970
Your life since graduation:

Both my parents are gone. My father passed away in 1981 and my mother passed away in 1997. I took my mother shopping most every Saturday for about 11 years. She didn't drive and I didn't mind spending time with her.
I have been married to Michael Daly since 1962. This year we will be married 55 years.
We have a son and a daughter, Kevin and Melanie. Kevin was born in 1967 and Melanie in 1970. Kevin graduated from Sacramento State and received a B.S. in Criminology. He has worked in several penal institutions and is currently working in one. Melanie works for a hotel and is a Convention Services and Sales Representative. My son has two children, Austin 14 and Jessica 12. Melanie is still hopeful the right fellow will come along.

I took a few courses at CSM, but mostly had on the job courses. I worked at Lenkurt Electric for 2 years, Nestle Chocolate Company in San Francisco for 2 years, had a miscarriage, and worked for part time agencies in San Francisco until I became pregnant with Kevin. I didn't work for 10 years, spending time with my children. I worked for Johns Manville Corporation for 8 years, and stayed home for a year. My last job was working for the Federal Bureau of Prisons as an Administrative Assistant for 16 years. We were selling our house in San Carlos anyway, but I got Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Places Lived:
San Francisco 6 years, San Mateo 3 years, San Carlos 30 years, and El Dorado Hills 16 years.

Places traveled:
A lot of trips staying at PG&E cabins and Tahoe cabins, when children were young. We have gone on three cruises, two 7-day Mexican Riviera, and a 10-day Alaskan cruise, which was wonderful.

An Interesting experience:
Mike sat on his new glasses on the bed the first day of our 2007 Alaskan Cruise. Luckily he brought his old pair. Mike drove the off road adventure cart like a blind man (he had to wear goggles over his glasses that kept getting wet from rain) for 2 hours. I was too short to drive. We were exploring the remote back country of Ketchikan with my cousin and other people. It was fun.

Current Activities:
We belong to German Shepherd Rescue. We have always had German Shepherds. We go to dog agility classes and training. We attend air shows, a lot of gardening, grand-children's sports activities, traveling, and various other activities.

School Story:

Carlmont and courses at CSM

I was so sorry to hear about Kathy passing away.  Kathy was so nice and funny in high school.  I wish I had seen her again.  God Bless you.  Rest In Peace.

I was thinking Rick Eptings tribute to Harlan was Wonderful.  I didn’t see Harlan since high school, but he sounded like a Wonderful, fun, loyal human being.  Rest In Peace Harlan.

I was in Brownies and Girl Scouts with Connie.

I knew her mother.  She and her family were wonderful.

She passed away too young.

I will always remember her.  Rest In Peace.

Hi Nancy
I am glad you have traveled so much.
I was probably working for the Nestle Chocolate Company in 1964, when you were working in San Francisco. Mike and I lived on Lombard and 14th Avenue in San Francisco until 1968.
I enjoyed talking to your mother when I voted in San Carlos. She was such a nice person.
All the best.
