No college education, just school of hard knocks and work experience.

Love Life

Married Michael Azevedo (class of 71) July 3, 1971. We have two wonderful children, Michael Jr (27) and Angela (24). Plus three beautiful grandchildren, Austin(7), Tayler(3) and Darrian (6).

Michael, Jr. is currently in the Marines stationed on Okinawa. He should be returning to San Diego in July 2000. He will then have one year left. He is not sure if he wants to stay in the Marine as a career. He is in a job that requires him to be out to sea to often for him and family. He has two children, Austin & Tayler. Anglea is currently living here in Atwater also. She is a CNA. She has one child, Darren.


While we were on Okinawa (1978-1981) I worked for the Morale, Welfare & Recreation department. I ran service personnel vehicle thru the Japanese inspections so the car could be driven on the island. This was for about 1 yr. Then worked in the accounts payable office until we left in August 1981 for Castle AFB. In 1982 started working for the Merced County Probation Dept as a typist clerk II. In 1983 promoted to the juvenile traffic clerk still at the probation dept. On 1-5-2000, went out on job related stress leave. As of 6-9-00, still out on stress leave. Waiting for workmen's comp. to make a decision if it is work or not. Everyone but workmen's comp. and my boss knows it is, but they play their games. I hope to just quit and get started on the career I really want, which is to have my own crafts business. On 2-5-01 I signed up to be a Princess House Lifestyle Consultant. I have been a Princess House Crystal Hostess for years. It was finally time for me to sell it and make money. It is enjoyable and fun. So if any of you are interested in hosting a Princess House Party, email me.


I love working with children. I have been a Girl Scout Leader since 1988. I like to garden, go camping or just be out of doors and crafts. Selling/holding Princess House Parties.


Still being alive. I have gone thru two cancer surgeries within 30 days of each other back in Aug/Sept 1998. They say everything is okay for now. Just alot of doctor visits. My family and friends.


Lived in Rio Linda until July 1972. That's when Mike joined the Air Force. July to Oct 1972 we were in Illinois for part of his training. Then was sent to McClellan AFB so back to Rio Linda we go. There until 1976 moved to Homestead AFB until 1978. Then sent to Okinawa until 1981 and sent to Castle AFB until 1992. At that time Mike retired from the Air Force. We were to move back to the Sacto. area or out of state to Colorado. Well that didn't happen. We stayed here in Atwater. Mike got a job in Pleasaton and ended up buying a house, so looks like we are here for awhile.
