The Waugh Family in Danville, California

After Joy's death in April, 1954, Jock Waugh began work as Superintendent for the Alamo School District. The Waugh family lived at 55 Gil Blas Road, Danville, California from 1954-1959. Agnes "Ethel" Russell lived with the Waugh Family for a period of time to take care of the children while Jock was at work. Jock's sisters Chrissie and Violet would also move to California and live with the family in Danville (and later in Alamo and Fanny Bay, B.C., Canada).

"I think Nana came with us to Danville.  I don't know if she was living in Boonville with us or if she came when Joy got sick. I think we went to Powell River while Daddy was moving to Danville.  I vaguely remember bunk bed sleeping compartments on a train with Nana and Phillip. All that is very iffy in my memory.  I think Nana went back to BC and then Blanche McAllister babysat us for a little while - not sure if it was days, weeks, or months. I'm a little fuzzy on how long Nana was in Danville. Violet and Lec came to visit in Danville.  I think Violet came to live with us soon after that - maybe that's why Lec was in Campbell River when she died, she could have been staying with Auntie Janet. Chrissie left Frank and came to live with us when we were still in Danville - not too long after Violet. We moved to Alamo in about 1957". - Glenda Waugh

I remember the Easter of 1955. We had a big Easter Egg Hunt in a field at the north end of Gil Blas Road. Most of the kids in the neighbourhood were there as were many parents. It was an exciting day! I think most kids filled their baskets with hard-boiled eggs and Easter candy. I sure loved the Easter Bunny! - Jeff Waugh

A boy and his dog: Jeff & Tippy, December 25, 1956

Tippy was my faithful companion, friend and defender. We would often wander away from home alone (to Nana's chagrin) in search of lizards, frogs and pollywogs. My favorite spot was a forbidden waterhole on the other side of Tassajara Road. We would follow the stream (drainage ditch) on the south side of Gil Blas Road through the culvert to surface on the south side of Tassajara where I would catch frogs and watch pollywogs in the warm California sun. My sister saw us there from the school bus one day when she was returning home from Kindergarten or Grade 1 and we ran home as fast as we could hoping to get there before Glenda, but we were too late and in trouble! My grandmother had been frantically searching for us. - Jeff Waugh
