WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL TWO RIVERS WI CLASS OF 1989

STACEY ERICKSON

Stacey is a girl I met in freshman year. I had her in Mr. Scriver's history class, during the second semester.

I sat in the row right up against the wall. Stacey was on my left. Shawn Olson sat in front of her. Brenda Linzmeier sat behind her. The three of them would constantly jabber all class. I didn't have a problem with the other two. But Stacey was sort of bitchy. She made fun of me from time to time, not that I cared too much. I slept a lot in there. I failed the class actually. In fact, I can remember resting my head on my left arm during a filmstrip. I hadn't quite dozed off yet. But Stacey thought I had. So she yanked my arm away and got a good laugh from it. Whatever floats her boat I guess.

After the incident with the ceiling tiles, Stacey was a lot nicer to me. She had all kinds of questions, and wanted to know the details of what happened. Perhaps I earned her respect. I don't know.

Stacey always seemd sort of trashy to me. At the very least, she was mouthy.

During my freshman year, my school had a plague of suicide attempts. Allegedly Stacey was one of them. It's all rumor. But I heard that she tried to choke herself with her purse, while she was in Mr. Wood's office. I'm not sure how one would go about doing that. But obviously she wasn't successful.

I had Stacey in Mr. Ertman's pre-algebra II class, in my sophomore year. She didn't sit anywhere near me - which I was happy about. I recall that someone (perhaps David Kanera) questioned her about her alleged sexual liaisons. Stacey came right out and denied that she was promiscuous. But she did admit to sleeping with three different guys recently. One of them she named - fellow graduate Troy Rezachek.

At some point during our sophomore year, Stacey got into a fight. I think it was with class of 1990's Tarcy Burgett. I'm sorry to say that I missed the fight. But people talked about it. In that same math class, Nick Novachek told Stacey that during the fight, one of her boobs popped out. Stacey was confused, saying that she had had a bra on. Nonetheless, Nick was insistent that one of Stacey's boobs popped out at some point.

I'm not sure which year it was. But for awhile, Stacey was one of the office helpers. She was in charge of going around picking up the attendance slips during her shift. I can't remember who it was. But she was going to try and cover for someone who had planned to skip out of a certain class. But I think they all got caught.

Stacey is in my junior yearbook. But she's not in the senior yearbook. So at some point, she disappeared. I suspect that she dropped out. I haven't seen her since. It looks like she spent a little time in Colorado. But for the last several years, she's bounced around Sheboygan and Manitowoc. She was married and became Stacey Nighbor. But they divorced. I think they had at least one child together. Since the divorce, she's remarried, and now lives in Manitowc as Stacey Vanderbloomen.

UPDATE - 12/12/06 - Stacey sent me a picture of her husband and three kids. Looking good Stacey! You can see her family below.

I remember that fight. I think it was in the tennis courts. I’m pretty sure the fight was between Stacey and a rather large girl named Karla. When I say large, I don’t necessarily mean fat, she was just real big. I could be wrong but I seem to remember some bad blood between those two. Burt maybe you can look in the Class of 1990. I don’t have my yearbooks anymore or I’d look. I think her last name may have been Kornish?

Anyways, I’ll also confirm the boob-flopping-out incident. It came right out when Karla almost ripped Stacey’s shirt off of her. That was a helluva fight. A real punching, scratching, hair pulling, clothes ripping extravaganza!

Thanks Burt, I would have thought that these memories were long gone.

Damn! Of all the fights to miss. Boobs and brutality...

Yes, there was a big girl named Carla Cornish. And no, she wasn't fat. She was a basketball player or volleyball player - just big and athletic. I thought Carla was pretty cool actually. And yes, she was a member of the class of 1990.

There was a fight - it was supposed to be between Tracy Burgett and Stacey. Unfortunately for Stacey, Tracy was friends with Carla Cornish who agreed to beat the crap out of Stacey for Tracy.
