Oak Glen, California, lies a few miles up the mountain from Yucaipa. The town spreads out via a loop tour of the best apple country around. Tourists come to visit the beautiful country and partake in the fresh apple and cherry deserts.

Raised on one of the apple ranches in Oak Glen, Susan attended a very small elementary school. In fact, in the third grade, she was one of two students in her class.

Susan Anton attended high school in the neighboring valley of Yucaipa and graduated in 1968. Her first beauty pageant win occurred in Redlands, a nearby “big” city, about 10 miles from Yucaipa CA.

California crowned her Miss California in 1969 based on beauty and talent and this win paved the way to her being voted second runner up in the Miss America Contest of 1970.

According to her website, Susan lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. You will find more information about her by clicking the link to her website, as shown above.

Yucaipa California also produced three well known baseball players. To achieve this result, credit must go to some unnamed baseball coaches.
