Catalina High School, Tucson, Arizona, USA
Gloria Messina San Angelo


     I am back in Tucson, after living in California for
34 years. My new address is 6817 E. Via Vigna.  Phone
is 520/232-1075.
    A lot of our travels have taken us with our handball
group to various tournaments in Michigan, Las Vegas,
San Diego, Portland,and upcoming to Houston and

    I have remarried--Vince San Angelo(Tucson High-
1958).  Some of you might even know him.  We are both
retired.  Vince spends a lot of his time as a
graduate advisor to the Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity
and he plays Handball. In fact, he won his first
National Championship in June.  I spend a lot of my
time playing tennis, gardening and having fun of not
working anymore!! We were married on August 9, 2003
and just celebrated our 1st anniversary.  My two
daughters are still living in Orange, California. 
The oldest daughter is expecting her first baby in
January, so I will finally be a grandmother for the
first time.  Although, I am a grandmother to Vince's
4 grandchildren.

    After graduation from the U of A, went to California
and taught 2nd grade, then worked at Tennis Lady,
Midas Muffler, and Tustin Hills Racquet Club, where I
retired after 19 years(had a wonderful retirement
party) and then moved to Tucson and got married!!

    Love to shop.  I would make a good personal shopper. 
If you're having a tough time finding something, I
probably could tell you where to go to find it.
    Tennis--try to play at least 3-4 times during the
week.  The tennis court is right in back of our

    Landed on the Carol Burnett Show and gave her a
needlepoint pincushion, which I was making and
selling to retail stores at that time--1974.

UPDATE: (May 30, 2009)
I left off last with 2 grandchildren being born (Sailor and Sonny). Twins, Jack & Sadie were born to my oldest daughter,Kelly.
They are now 19 months old and the newest grandchild
is Vincent Miladinovich born to my youngest
daughter,Stacy and he is now 5 months old. That makes
10 grandchildren-- 5 on my side and 5 on Vince's side!
Does anyone in the class have more than this?????
Theseids really keep us hopping!!!

Hi Everyone--have a new email address and another new baby--a grandson born Oct. 7, 2006 to my youngest daughter in Orange, California. His name is Santino Ted-Thomas Miladinovich--they will call him Sonny. I am also proud of the fact that my husband, Vince San Angelo(Tucson High-'58) won the Worlds Handball Championship in August, 2006 in Edmonton,Canada. He is very active with Handball and we travel the handball circuit with various tournaments--going to next, Dallas, Kansas City, and Mineapolis in 2007. This certainly keeps us young!
