Twinsburg Historical Society and Museum

Trustee Audrey Kancler


Hi - I’m Audrey Percy Kancler, and I grew up in Twinsburg, graduating from Chamberlin HS in 1960 as part of the largest class to date - there were 49 of us!   When I was in grade school, the (old) school was crowded, and I went to first and third grades in the Grange Hall....now our Museum.  Second and fourth grades were half day.   I have a BS in Nursing from what is now Case Western Reserve University and worked at University Hospitals and  the Visiting Nurse Association. 

Ed and I married in 1966 and raised two great sons who have provided us with two perfect daughters-in-law and four wonderful grandchildren, now ages 14-19.   We lived in Shaker Hts., E. Cleveland, and (for 25years) Hinckley

Back when our sons were 17 and 19 I returned to school for a Masters in Social Work.  I eventually retired from MetroHealth in Cleveland as a social worker in rehabilitation with a concentration on the Brain Injury Program.

I’m sort of a Twinsburg old timer and a newbie.  Although we lived in the area and my parents stayed in Twinsburg, I missed a lot of first-hand knowledge about Twinsburg’s growth and changes and new events.  Ed and I were already Historical Society members when we moved back in 2002, and when I was asked to be a Trustee in 2005 I felt I was becoming a part of something important.   And I was right!   Our history is gone forever if we don’t treasure and save the physical reminders and, more importantly, promote the interest of younger generations.   It has been truly rewarding over the years, working with so many dedicated people toward those goals.Hi - I’m Audrey Percy Kancler, and I grew up in Twinsburg, graduating from Chamberlin HS in 1960 as part of the largest class to date - there were 49 of us!   When I was in grade school, the (old) school was crowded, and I went to first and third grades in the Grange Hall....now our Museum.  Second and fourth grades were half day.   I have a BS in Nursing from what is now Case Western Reserve University and worked at University Hospitals and  the Visiting Nurse Association.
