Elizabeth Stillings Beck
After graduating from Ohio State in 1977 with a B.S. in Biology
I headed to
Washington State for graduate school in Entomology. I discovered
the life of a professor was not for me, and neither was eastern
Washington. But I did meet my husband at WSU and we married in 1978.
ended up in Minneapolis in 1981, and have been in the same house
Minnetonka for 23 years. Our son is finishing up the first year
first full time job in Stamford, CT after finishing his degree at
New York, and we hope he moves back to Minnesota in the next few
After moving to Minneapolis, I completed an associates in accounting

finally had to learn how to type. I followed it with an MBA from
University of St Thomas. I worked in various accounting positions
2000 when I moved to U.S. Bank in Corporate Payment Systems. It
great switch to change management consulting and software development,
I am currently a product director for solutions in freight payments.
Even though retirement is still several years away, I am starting
plan all of the extra time to enjoy my favorite pastimes which currently
include gardening, ride my aging horse, Tai Chi and bellydancing.
I am really ambitious I may finally finish my gardening software
Below is a little bio of what I've done since high school. I spent
6 years at Ohio
University (after changing my major mid-stream) and graduated with
physics and mathematics. I went on to graduate school at Washington
where I earned a Master's in physics with a thesis in astrophysics.
Unable to find a
job in astronomy, I ended up going to Shell Oil in Houston TX. I
first worked as a
programmer in geophysical software, and then later as a geophysicist.
Later in my
career I worked as a research geophysicist. I retired from Shell
in 2010. I worked
as consultant for a few years after retirement. Lily and I spend
time between our
home in the Houston area on Clear Lake, and a summer home we have
in Port Townsend
Washington. Hope to see you sometime.
Steve Voase (4/30/55-8/4/2004) passed away after a 15 year battle
cancer, after 2 years of testicular cancer. He remained doing his
art & odd jobs
while on disability, wore out 10 speed tires 2x year & even
gained a few speeding
tickets. He found faith & married 2/14/1994, eventually moved
where he quietly passed away 8/2004 with the best VA home-care!
He will be missed & my family donates a coffee/57 chevy gift
to the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society fundraiser every August,
held by Pat O'Brien
dealership in Willoughby Hills.
We'd love to know if any of his classmates have any of his artwork
he may have
done for them through the years...his art portfolio was unfortunately
was a graduate of Cooper School of Art & excelled @ 'dot matrix
photo's, pen &
ink drawings, logos, cartooning & muscle car customized kits.

After graduation, I attended and graduated from OSU with a degree
in Math Education.
This May, I finish a 35 year career teaching junior high math (that
noise you hear
is my shouts of joy!). I have coached track and cross country all
those years and
will continue coaching after retiring from teaching. I still get
out and run with
the kids and jump into a race every once in a while. This November
will be my 30th
year as meet manager for the Ohio HS cross country championship.
For the last 15 years, I have shot competitive pistol matches and
that hobby has
turned into a 2nd vocation as I teach Concealed Carry classes around
My wife (Claire) and I have five children. We recently down-sized
and moved into a
small house in Alexandria Ohio. If you remember the Andy Griffith
Show, you know
where we live! The town has one traffic light, one gas station and
across the street from me!
I have many good memories of high school, especially the track and
cross country teams.

I left high school after the tenth grade and attended Case Western
Reserve University for my Bachelors and Masters degrees in developmental
psychology. I did a Ph.D. at Kent State and worked at the Cuyahoga
County Board of MR/DD for 30 years, retiring in 2008. I married
attorney Jim Hall in 1984 and we have been living in Summit County
then. My husband and I have a daughter, Anne - 26 - currently doing
Ph.D. in molecular biology/genomics at the Baylor College of Medicine

Hi class of '74. After graduation I attended the Cleveland Institute
of Art and
earned my bachelors of fine art. Worked in Beachwood as an art
director for a few
years, then moved to Chicago for 21 years. Worked in the advertising
space for several companies, then joined GE where I had executive
positions for 17
years. GE moved me to Minneapolis in '98. I left GE in 2003 to
join a consulting
firm in NYC, then spun off and formed my own in 2010. Our firm
-- Bamboo Partners
helps companies deliver on their strategies. It is interesting
work that has me on
the road 2-3 times a month.
I married my husband Steve in Chicago and had two kids. Christopher
is 24 and
Virginia is 22. Both healthy and happy and forging their own paths
in the world. My
husband died in 2010 after we had moved to our Ranch in Montana.
The ranch is my
home now forever. I have a bunch of animals....horses, ponies,
a donkey, a mule and
now 6 dogs. Sounds like a crazy animal hoarder situation, but
they are all dearly
loved and the horses have jobs --- toting me and friends around
National Forrest. I now have a new love in my life who is teaching
me about fishing
and hunting. And yes, I pack a weapon when riding in the back
LIfe has blessed me in so many ways. I am so grateful for my
kids, my love and my
friends and family. I get to Cleveland periodically to visit family,
but it rarely
overlaps with a reunion, hence my absence. I did get to the 20th
and had a great

I currently live in Euclid and married to Norman J. Kozan of
EHS class of 72. I

in Connecticut and a
daughter who lives in NY city. I am a grandmother to a beautiful
20 month old
granddaughter Rory, and another grandchild on the way in Aug of
2012. I am working
as a consultant for healthcare software and travel to various
the United States. My best accomplishments in life was having
three great children!
|Carole Rose Maddux
Following in the footsteps of my Dad, the Euclid High math teacher,
studied accounting in college. Upon graduation from B.G.S.U.,
I moved to
the Motor City to accept a job on the General Motors financial
wanted to be single and live the life of Mary Tyler Moore! Then
at age 30,
I met Jim Maddux at work, and a trip to the altar followed soon
our daughter Katey was born, I left G.M. to start an accounting
our house. Somewhere along the way, to everyone's surprise I became
born-again Christian. That is most rewarding thing I have ever
recommend it heartily to anyone.
Katey is grown and graduated, but I am still running the accounting
from home, still happily married to Jim, and we live in West Bloomfield,
Michigan. We attend Cornerstone Evangelical Presbyterian Church,
we like to
travel, and besides accounting, we have two other family businesses:
Land Lease, which links up hunters and land to hunt on; and Duneview
Enterprises, LLC, which is a vacation rental property in northern
In other words, we are hopelessly Midwestern.
Life is good, I am very blessed, and hope that you are all the

Hello fellow classmates. I just came across this site. It is
TY to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I last connected at the 10th year reunion...wow that was a long
time ago. I
still chat with a few of you on FB. I married a Westlake boy,
Jim Lewis in
1983: We moved our "Blended Family" to Las Vegas, NV

kids got older, I fulfilled my lifelong dream of a career in physical
therapy. I currently work at Summerlin Medical Center outpatient
therapy. I also worked in the acute care setting for many years
I watched my beautiful children grow up, get married and I am
grandmother of 7 grandchildren ages 17 years to 4 months. I am
starting a new chapter in my life as Jim and I are filing for
have been traveling with friends and will be leaving for a two
week trip to

life can change in an instant and this is not a dress rehearsal.
I look at my fellow friends and classmates that have left this

Hello from New Zealand!
Since graduation I probably could write volumes but will just
keep you all current
on where i have been in the last 11 years. I moved to New Zealand
in 1999 after
meeting my husband John. I have been married 10 years (second
marriage) to John
Somerville who is a native New Zealander. We live in Dunedin on
the South Island.
My daughter Jillian, who is now 27, lives with us here in New
I began my work here in New Zealand at The Otago Daily Times
Newspaper as one of the
managers of the Art/Advertising Department. During and since my
time at the Otago
Daily Times I have freelanced my artwork and in 2002 was proud
to show my oil
paintings in a local gallery here in New Zealand. From there my
husband and I
owned and operated our own cafe for a few years till we got a
wee bit tired of the
long hours. I have been working for the past 4 years at Coastal
Presbyterian, as a Lay Minister and Child and Youth Worker. I
am also currently at
Otago Univeristy studying Theology and Pastoral Studies to become
minister. (Yes at my advanced age lol)
My Husband John is a home health care worker and in my eyes a
saint :) He is a
fantastic person and one of the most loving people you would ever
My daughter Jillian (Jill) is currently doing her university
studies in the field of

We are very blessed :) I hope you all are too!

Went to work for
WKYC-TV for 11 years as an Associate Director, working on the
6 & 11PM News, the AM

I was fortunate
to work with many talented people on and off camera.
In 1991, I married my husband, Howard, who is from Philadelphia,
we have settled in
Rocky River. We have two children, Alexis who is 16 and Max who
is 15. They

WKYC and the Big
Ten Network, doing Cavs, Indians, Browns, Ohio State games, and
various college MAC
Just attended the 35th year reunion, if you haven't been to one,
try for the next
one, it was a pleasure to see everyone.
I am currently working at Cleveland Clinic Foundation, doing
cancer research studies

This is Susan Besselman, from Class of 74. My new email to list
on the website is
email@example.com. My new address for people to contact me is:

Madison, OH 44057-3136. Phone # 440-428-8398. Would love to hear
My life has changed in the past year, as now, I am raising my
5 1/2 yr. old twin
grandchildren, Jolie & Steven. I've been on disability for
health reasons, so this
has been more challenging for me, with their endless supply of
energy. Thought since
all 4 of my children were grown and gone out of state, I would
be doing something
different now, like traveling. I guess God has other plans for
me right now. THAT is
why I try and live by this saying, "ONE DAY AT A TIME"
and "WITH GOD".
Recently I had occasion to attend a football game at Euclid High
School. I have a
stepson (26) and two daughters (17 and 14). The girls are both
Eastlake North High School (insert chuckle here, those of you
who remember me from
high school and are amazed that I could have cheerleader daughters).
One is on the
varsity and one is a freshman. I try to attend all the games,
so it was off to
Sparky DiBiasio Stadium on Friday night.
A wave of nostalgia hit as I drove in the parking lot, coming
down Tracy and
turning into the parking lot the same way I did when I was going
to school there. I
half expected to see Paul, the rent-a-cop, there but no such luck.
looked the same, but the football team is better. They beat us
13-0. I sat on the
visitors side, like I hadn't since the 4th of July Fireworks in
1976. My high school
days truly seemed 34 years behind me.
The next day I took a cruise around Euclid. I found my old apartment
in the Parlawn
Gardens on Euclid Ave., but about half the apartment buildings
there have been torn
down. Accross the street used to be the Manners where we would
cruise when we were
first learning to drive. It's now the site of a grocery store.
The Hudson gas
station that used to sell me 32.9 cents/gallon gas is now an oil
Across the border in Wickliffe used to be the Euclid Ave. Outdoor
Drive-In, the site
of many fun nights. It's now a bowling alley/car dealership/McDonalds.
Golf course that was where I got my first job is now a McDonalds,
I now live in Willowick with my wife and kids and dog. I have
a steady job and a
nice house. I have been domesticated in every way. Willowick reminds
me much of the
way Euclid used to be when we were kids. My hope and prayer is
that my kids have the
kind of wild and crazy (and safe,please. after all, I'm Dad) times
in high school
with good friends like I did.
Love to Vic, Rob, Morgan, Lenny, Marty, Shirley, Paul R.I.P. DJ
I often think back to Euclid. I have not forgotten anybody. Here's
Got frustrated with my machine shop and sold it in 1980. Saw
a PBS program on
psychology, liked it, and received a PhD in 1990 from UCLA. Threw
dissertation and degrees in the trash after developing an aversion
science, but held on to a lot of the experiences and my deeper
Always thought religion was crap, but, go figure, my interests
soon led me
back to the Catholic faith and I have been attending Daily Mass
I can sit in an empty church for hours just listening. It can
be awesome and
profound, but I won't try to elaborate.
Got into classical music in an expensive way, lot of Masses and
Chants, but my rock years always remain a part of me. I like rock
I think a lot of it contains "good theology" - I look
back on my rock years
in Euclid as a special ed. class. Led Zeppelin remains my favorite,
now find the Catholic classics more explicit.
Currently working from home for the UCLA School of Law. A bit
moody and I
live like a hermit. Biggest vice is computers and I often give
in to lustful
urges to make my computer better and faster. Is there anything
than a computer geek? - Computer technology fascinates me as much
Never married or had biological children of my own but helped
since she was one year of age. She's like a daughter, now married
marine and living near Camp Lejeune, NC.
After High School, I moved to Colorado to find my head, but it
wasn't there. So, I
moved back to Cleveland to pursue my dream of finding a good woman
and a factory
job. The woman thing didn't work out, but the factory job did
and they in turn sent
me to Lakeland Community College where I graduated Suma Cum Laude.
perhaps I wasn't the fool that I was in High School, I quit the
factory and moved to
Indiana where I subsequently earned a Bachelors in Engineering
and a Masters in
My goal was to return to the Forest City, but as fate would have
it I landed a big
job at GM in Indy and eventually met the woman of my dreams -
an angel, she is. We
are raising our three kids in a town slightly larger than the
population of our
beloved high school; not quite the "simple life", but
a lot simpler than life in the
We are a family that prays and plays together. A typical Sunday
starts with Mass at
the local Catholic Church (kids are altar servers). After Mass,
we often take our
five dirtbikes out and wander the hilly fields of Southeast Indiana
together. I take
great pride in the fact that our family likes being together.
I am tighter than ever with my high school chums and many of
us share the same
interest in vintage motorcycles. We use motorcycle races and rallies
as an excuse to
get together regularly.
Faith, family and friends I have down. My job on the other hand
is straight out of a
dilbert cartoon. I work my butt off as a purchasing manager and
have traveled the
world in search of the best deals for parts and pieces, but would
give it up this
afternoon if I would inherit big money or win the lotto.

I have not strayed far! Still live in Euclid with my husband
of 22 years. We have two sons, 21 and 18. Tom is at the high school

many travel opportunities which I love!
One of these travel opportunities, unfortunately, will overlap
the 30th reunion. I will be in Portland, Oregon instead of here
in Euclid. As a result, I am trying to get a few of us together
in Portland to have our own mini-west coast reunion. Anyone who
would want to join me in Portland is welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
