Where did you go to 8th grade?

Belvedere/Tiburon- Del Mar School/Reed

What have you been up to since you graduated from Redwood?

I worked 24 years in Student Academic Affairs at the University of California, San Francisco, processing student records and ordering diplomas for Masters, PhD, M.D., Pharm.D. and D.D.S. degrees.
I obtained my Real Estate License in 1988 and worked in residential real estate sales in San Francisco. I have been proud to represent Intero - A Berkshire Hathaway Affiliate in San Francisco.
My hobby is acrylic and oil painting and drawing since high school. I painted over 80 paintings of realistic/impressionistic mountain scenes, snow scenes, seascapes, still life florals, carousels and children's animal art subjects.
During 2022, I survived Stage 1 pancreatic cancer surgery. Hooray!

School Story:

Cherished memories were Mr. Sullivan's Spanish class and Mrs. Koss in Algebra and Geometry, and I always remember Mr. Wally MacDonald teaching drawing to us newbies! Shorthand class has been my secret for taking notes all these years, but the monstrous bookkeeping machine was a humbling experience! My most favorite memory was sitting in the quad making daisy chains for our wrists and our hair.

Dear Elsie: You were always my friend. I will never forget you. Happy Birthday for a wonderful year ahead. You will always deserve the best! I am still in S.F. & lost my husband on 9/18/21 so it has been difficult but I have 3 grandchildren now! Happiness still abounds.

Happy Birthday, Gary! I still have all my 4 yearbooks. I see that you have a lovely family and I am proud of your work experience. Enjoy a big cake and ice cream! So a happy birthday today, and many more to come. I hope to have many more years after I have pancreatic surgery next month in April at UCSF. I worked 20 years preparing diplomas and records for the entire campus and now some of those nurses & doctors know me and treat me real good in their clinics! Best look great! from Mary (Arab) Mangan

Mary Anne Arab Mangan has left an In Memory comment for Samuel Arab.
Sep 16, 2015 at 1:33 AM

My dear brother, Sam, departed suddenly on 9/24/09 of a heart attack near McClellan AFB in Sacramento and he rests peacefully at the Sacramento Valley V.A. Cemetary in Dixon, CA.  He left behind 5 adult children and their families, along with his siblings and extended family.  He was a Chaplain with the Christian Motorcycle Association #70663 and served with the Patriot Guard Riders whose motto was "Standing for Those Who Stood for Us."   Sam shared the vegetables and fruits from his garden with the Senior Gleaners and with many friends. Sam's happiest moments came when he donned his Santa outfit and rode with his decorated sleigh full of toys being pulled by his motorcycle going down the freeways in Sacramento to deliver gifts to needy children for Christmas.  Our family misses him but we cherish the memories!  From your sister, Mary Mangan, Redwood High class of 1965.
