I married Gene McDaniel, my high school sweetheart. We were married 10 years, then divorced. We had three girls and one boy.
Gene was killed a few years after our divorce in a private airplane crash.
In 1969 I came back to Walla Walla and worked at the Walla Walla Cannery - nights and Red Apple - days.
I met my second husband, Vern Fuge, and he had two teenage girls. He passed away in 2002. We were married for 34 wonderful years. We were married one day and had all six children in our home.
When I married Gene he was a Navy man and we had some wonderful travels – California, Japan (my son was born in Yokosuka, Japan), Guam, Philippines, Maryland, and back to Washington.
When Vern and I moved to Yakima I went to work for an attorney’s office, then a title company. I retired 25 years later in 2008.
As a result of our six children, I have 24 grandchildren and 10-1/2 great grandchildren.
I have had many blessing in my life and many ups and downs, but I am very thankful for my life. I am very blessed.
Nancy Niemi (Jewell)
November 06, 1941 firstname.lastname@example.org Retired Married 2 2014-06-23 18:17:37Departed Walla Walla fall, 1959 for Ellensburg, WA and Central Washington State (now University). Graduated 1963 with degree in Elementary Education with specialties in Reading and Art Education.
Married Michael D. (Mike) Jewell (also a CWS grad), December, 1963 and celebrated our 50th anniversary with family and friends in Las Vegas, December 27-28, 2013.
Two daughters: Aili (Seattle) and Dana (Peoria, AZ) and her husband, Brian and a very special granddaughter, age 10 yrs.
Taught as a Reading Specialist in both Pasco, WA and Federal Way, WA until the teachers' unions began dictating what teachers were and were not to do. Nancy left the teaching profession at that time to raise both daughters. Husband, Mike, was with GECC during those years transferring him (us) to various locations in the western US. (Seattle/Bellevue, WA, Everett, WA, Tri-Cities, WA, Tacoma, WA, Portland, OR, Pasadena, CA, and back to Seattle/Redmond, WA).
When we relocated to Spokane, WA area in mid-70s we built a home and horse facility in Liberty Lake, WA. While Mike continued in the lease/finance industry, he was busy collecting, rebuilding and showing muscle cars (GTOs specifically). Nancy continued her interest in Morgan horses which was a childhood dream growing up in Walla Walla and knowing two great foundation Morgan breeders in that area. Relationships with those two Morgan mentors were built during her years riding with the Walla Walla Wagonettes on her part Morgan mare. Over the years we bred, raised, and showed many registered Morgan horses beginning in the late 1960s
Managing this facility was almost a full time job, but Nancy worked as Administrative Assistant to a financial consultant for 15 years. When daughter, Dana, graduated with degree in Marketing and Merchandising, and sharing interest in the equine show ring, we partnered to open a successful tack and equestrian business in the Spokane Valley, WA. Almost 14 years later, when Dana's husband took a job in his field in Arizona, the store was sold. After retiring from our large equine facility in Liberty Lake, WA, we downsized to a smaller farm in nearby Post Falls, ID. Nancy, as owner of Jazztime Morgan Farm, received the national award from American Morgan Horse Association; Hall of Fame 2009. Cold and snowy winters began to wear on us. After Dana and Brian's move to warm, sunny Arizona and many visits to their home, we decided to downsize once more. We were fortunate to find a two acre property in Desert Hills, AZ and April, 2010 found us Arizona residents. We have retained a core group of six show Morgan horses here in Arizona.
Another great interest for us has been the fabulous canine, the Standard Schnauzer. Our first, over 15 years ago, was the beginning of our breeding program specializing in the rare black color. Having shown several to AKC Champion and/or Grand Champion titles, we have imported a lovely black pup from Poland and we hope he will bring home numerous titles in the show ring and expand our breeding program in the US. Having received AKC Breeder of Merit status in 2011 was a big honor for Jazztime Standard Schnauzers.
We continue to stay busy developing this property, also as support to Dana and her family, with the horses, and dogs. Mike continues to work part-time as a consultant in the lease and finance business which he loves.
Here in Desert Hills, our home includes a guest house which is available to family and friends vacationing in Arizona. You can find me on FaceBook if you wish to get in touch.
