Leila (Niemeth) Tweed High School Graduation Photo, 1961
Dennis Booth & Leila Niemeth Tweed, about 1995.
Oscar Niemeth and daughter, Leila Niemeth Tweed. Hip Hop Ball.

Oscar Niemeth had his hip replaced at the St. Francis Hospital in San Francisco in 2000.

The hospital had a "hip-hop" Ball on Halloween to celebrate all the knee and hip replacements done during that year. We all dressed in costume. Leila, his daughter, made Oscar his hat and emblem from a brown grocery bag. Leila had made the dress she had on for a previous costume party. I went as his nurse. All he wanted to do was dance again -- and he did, with the Dr. standing behind him in case he became unsure of his step. That's full service health care!

Oscar was 90 years old when the doctor told him he was well enough for a hip replacement and should go ahead with the operation if he didn't want to spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair. That's all it took!!

Biography

Eighteen generations of our family tree appear in "Ancestors of Virginia Lavonne, Dorothy Louise, Greta Elberta, Dittman Becker, William Shelvy Jr, Genevieve Maxine, and Robert Dale Milbourn," Researched and compiled by Doris Nelson Sloan, 2004, 102 pages, in the possession of Leila Inez Niemeth Tweed

Leila grew up in the San Francisco Bay area and attended grade school in a small town, Petaluma, California. High School at Sequoia High School in Redwood City, as well as Woodside High School in Woodside, Ca., and South San Francisco High School in South San Francisco, C.

Oscar Niemeth and Genevieve Milbourn Niemeth raised their four children in the San Francisco Bay Area moving frequently to live close to Oscar as he was building his tugboat business, Oscar Niemeth Towing, Inc.

After marrying George Tweed and living in San Diego, we decided to move to the High Desert of California and run a glider port, El Mirage Soaring Center. In 1975, after several years of turning your avocation into your vocation we decided to move back to San Diego to raise our son, Kevin.

Leila is the grandmother of 2 beautiful grandchildren.

Growing up, I always had a camera in my hand waiting for a photo opportunity. I'm now bringing the past generational photos of our family into the visual stories to share with our next generation.

Writing your own bio seems to be the most difficult, --- so...to be continued ---

Thanks Leila for your contributions. Between my hubbys health and some other devastating things, i haven't been able to get to work on this. I am planning to try to schedule some time each day to get back to work on things I enjoy.
