Arthur Hayes Musick Jr.

Arthur Hayes Musick Jr. December 11, 1935 - September 9, 2010 Services will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 15, 11:00 a.m., at the LDS Chapel in Oakhurst, CA for Art Musick, a long time resident of Bakersfield who passed away at his home in Coarsegold Thursday. Art was born in Childress, Texas, the youngest of 5 children of Arthur Hayes Musick Sr. and Janie Pearl (nee Chadwick). When Art was 5 years old his family moved to the Bakersfield, California area. He often told stories of his youth. The love and fun he shared with his three older brothers, Jack, Leonard and Harold, and his sister, Wanda Bushell. Art graduated in 1953 from Kern County High School and shortly thereafter joined the USAF in the Air Police division. Art served in the Air Force from 1953 to 1962. While in the AF he served a year in Korea in the K-9 unit. On his return to stateside was stationed at Mtn. Home AFB where he met and married Lynn in January of 1956. While serving the last 4 years of his enlistment at Moses Lake AFB Washington Art became a marksman traveling around to the different matches. He shot a 22, a 38, and a 45, winning many metals. He was an excellent shot winning his 'leg' on the distinguished shooters. Art and Lynn had 5 children. Two sons: Steven who lived in Bakersfield, CA, Michael of Enumclaw, WA, three daughters: Shannon, Sharon, and Sheryl all of Bakersfield. He is survived by his wife, Lynn; daughter-in-law, Mica Musick; son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Kathleen Musick; his three daughters and their husbands, Shannon and Ken Ricks, Sharon and Chris Alcock, Sheryl and Shannon Rock, and their families; his brother, Harold and wife Lorraine Musick. Art has 27 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews as well as great nieces and nephews. Art was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur Sr. and Janie Pearl Musick; two brothers, Jack and Leonard; his sister, Wanda; a grandson, Ron Mota; and his oldest son, Steven. Art loved playing golf. His love of this game led him to retire in YLP where until his health deteriorated you could find him on a golf course 3 or 4 days a week. Art, though seemingly quiet, had a great sense of humor and his children who loved him dearly have always delighted in playing jokes on him. One of his birthday cards said they had thought about getting him some new longer distance balls but decided he wouldn't want to hike any farther into the woods to get his ball than he was now. On a gift of golf balls one of them wrote a note to the effect that why didn't he take golf lessons so they wouldn't have to buy him golf balls on all of the holidays for fathers. Art actually beat the course record holder here at YLP. The official record was 58 - Art shot a 56, though two other players witnessed it; it was not witnessed by two Men's Club Members. So his score was not "official", but still an exciting and wonderful moment for Art. Art was a gentle and humble soul and if the greatest gift a father can give to his children is to love their mother, our children certainly received this gift. Art's strong belief in our Savior Jesus, and his willingness to serve was always a source of strength and an example for his family. Art had a beautiful voice and was always singing. His memory for songs was astounding. My Art... Until that wonderful day when we can be together forever, your songs, your jokes, your smile, your strong ethics, your sweet loving, kind and gentle nature will be a source of strength and comfort in our hearts and lives. We love you.

Barbara Boylan Schager

Barbara Boylan Schager 1965 - 2010 A Memorial Mass will be held Wednesday, Sept. 15, at 10:30 a.m. at St. Francis of Assisi Church, 900 "H" Street, for Barbara Boylan Schager, who passed away in Ames, Iowa on September 9, 2010, the day before what would have been her 45th birthday. Barb was the second of six children born to Helen and George Haller. She was raised and educated in Bakersfield, graduating from Garces Memorial High School and California State University Bakersfield. She married Kevin Boylan and together they had two sons, Jimmy and Matt. They were married for nine years before she lost her husband following an automobile accident. Barb's grief seemed insurmountable, and she was resigned to a life as a single mother. But Barb's faith became her lifeline. She began collecting the coins she would find on her daily walks, wondering whether God was sending her a message. The coins' inscription, "In God We Trust", resonated with her. A year later, a new chapter began to unfold when she was introduced to Jason Schager at the wedding of mutual friends. They married in 2001, and Barb and the boys settled into life in Iowa, planting roots with Jason. Two days after Barb's 43rd birthday, she was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. With an indomitable resolve, she vowed to use her battle to heighten awareness of this disease and raise money for research. Friends, family, and complete strangers formed 'Barb's Army', and for nearly two years her sister Mary Kay chronicled her journey for everyone on her website,, . Through it all, Barb never lost her infectious smile, sparkling eyes and unique personality. Her stunning good looks belied the true beauty that was more than skin deep. Blessed with the gift of gab, Barb was a natural saleswoman, beginning at the age of eight selling Grandpa's surplus vegetables door to door out of her little red wagon. She eventually took her talents to real estate, telemarketing and retail fashion. Barb loved life and treasured her family ties and many rich friendships, as well as the multitude of parties that celebrated life's many milestones. In addition to her husband, sons and parents, those left to cherish her memory are her siblings and their spouses, Mary Kay and Ken Link, Dianne and Dave Peranich, Joan and Jeff Finch, Katie and Scott Metcalf, and Daniel and Tiffany Haller. She is also survived by her in-laws Joyce and Bob Schager, Scott and Ginger Schager, and Cindy and David Brown, as well as Doreen Boylan Abrams and Bob Abrams, Greg and DeDe Boylan, Jennifer and Dan Drake, Jennice and Steve Cerrina, Bryan and Traci Boylan and 27 nieces and nephews. Barb kept every Get Well card and intended to someday send a note of thanks. Though that day never came, her family wishes to thank each and every person for their thoughtfulness on her behalf. "Trust God" was the life lesson she carried with her through the grief process, and later, the fight of her life. It is now one of the greatest gifts she has taught Jason, Jimmy and Matt. In lieu of flowers, donations in Barb's memory may be made to one of the following organizations dear to her heart: Mayo Clinic/Pancreatic Cancer Research, 200 First Street Southwest, Rochester, MN 55905; St. Vincent de Paul Homeless Center Project, P.O. Box 3255, Bakersfield, CA 93385; Garces Memorial High School, 2800 Loma Linda Drive, Bakersfield, CA 93305. Those attending her celebration of life are encouraged to wear purple, the designated color for pancreatic cancer research. "My three favorite concepts, the ones that brought me to Ames, will carry me through this next journey - faith, hope and love." - Barbara Boylan Schager - 2008, www.bakersfield.com/obits

Janet fought a courageous three-year battle with cancer, without so much as a single complaint., Janet enjoyed life to the fullest, even during her toughest days she would say, "I am the luckiest woman in the world, I was blessed with a wonderful husband, loving friends. I have traveled the world and I have so much to be thankful for." She was truly more concerned for others than herself., Janet loved horses, nature, photography, antique cars and vintage clothing. She only knew one way to do something and that was "the best" she possibly could. Her contact with nature was something to behold, whether it be at her Eagle Lake cabin or her beautiful home in Winters.

"What a team we made" Janet would always say. Janet and Jerry operated family businesses their entire marriage of 43 years. Some of Jerry's fondest memories were of Janet as a young lady giving horse riding lessons to children on a ranch in Sacramento, or touring their old cars through the mountains of Colorado, dressed in vintage clothing. Though, Janet and Jerry had no children of their own, they impacted many lives of children in the community. The friendships that Janet fostered through the antique auto clubs and the cabin at Eagle Lake were evident to the very end, as the calls and cards poured in with prayers and well wishes., Janet was preceded in death by her father, John Williams Sims; mother, Alice Ellen Sims; brother, Gordon Sims; and her beloved in-laws, Lewis and Anita Neil., Janet is survived by her loving husband, Jerry Neil; brother and sister-in-law, Walt and Sally Neil; nephew, John Neil, his spouse Karen and their children, Brock and Ashlynne; nephew, Clark Neil and his children Sarah and Katie; niece, Laurie Neil Hoskins and her spouse Doug; and niece, Sandy Neil, all of Winters., The Neil Family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude to all the dear friends of Janet for their outpouring of love during her illness.

Joe Morello

Joe Morello On September 3, 2010 Joe Morello passed from this life surrounded by his family. Having enjoyed 80 years of family, business, sports, and golf, Joe succumbed after a hard-fought battle with multiple myeloma. A gentleman, a man of integrity, honesty, kindness, and generosity, Joe is survived by the family of which he was so proud - his wife (Augie) of 58 years, his children and their spouses (Linda Morello & Javier Gomez, John & Heather Morello, Joe Morello & Trish Breslin), 4 grandchildren (Catherine, Hannah, Mateo, and Anna Morello), cousins and family, and his beloved dog, Tuffy. Joe, son of Maria and John Morello of Mill Valley, lived 77 years of his life in Marin County. He graduated from Park School and Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, and he earned an AA from the College of Marin. A great athlete, Joe was co-captain of his schools' baseball teams and a member of the Jr. Seals. He was a co-founder of the Southern Marin Little League and he coached numerous Little League and C.Y.O. basketball teams. A dedicated fan of the 49ers (season ticket holder) and the Giants, Joe enjoyed both playing and watching sports. The day after Joe married Augie, IJ columnist Jim Gilmartin wrote "Tiburon third sacker Joe Morello didn't show up for his team's game yesterday. Joe was too busy - getting married. The new auxiliary third sacker is the former Augie Perry." And, Joe loved golf, playing several times every week and planning his calendar around his golf games. Joe's great passion was the business in which he co-partnered with the Canepa family - the Mill Valley Market. Both Jim and Bob Canepa were respected and beloved business partners and friends with whom he shared 35 years in business. As the produce buyer at the Mill Valley Market, Joe dedicated himself to bringing the freshest and best produce to his customers and in meeting their special wants and needs. He took pleasure in learning everything he could about fine foods and wines and sharing that with family, friends, and customers. No one could barbecue a steak or prepare a crab dip quite like Joe. At his 50th wedding anniversary, he remarked that he was "the luckiest man in the world" - he had had a business, a wife, and a family he loved. Joe was a member of numerous organizations (SIRS Branch 47, Italian Catholic Federation, Italian Athletic Club). He dedicated his time to his children's schools and to his parish. He enjoyed many friendships - other gentlemen who shared his love of sports, enjoyed his company, and supported him during these past two years of declining health. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Joe and his family wish to express their gratitude to the staff of the Greenbrae Care Center for their extraordinary and compassionate care. And, Joe held his physicians (Dr. Robert Van Herick and Dr. Bobbie Head) in the highest esteem. He valued and respected their care and treatment.

Nelson Rossig

Born at Bucksport on December 3, 1908 to Richard and Nettie Rossig, Nelson Rossig passed away Saturday, September 11, 2010 at his home in Eureka. He was an Elder of the Wiyot tribe. As a young boy he was taught to fish and hunt by his Uncle Jerry James. He enjoyed every kind of bounty the waters of the north coast have to offer. Crab, mussels, abalone, eels, and of course salmon and steelhead are just some of the treasures he enjoyed. He got his first taste of fly fishing as a teenager with Joe Dickerson and developed his talent into an art form he enjoyed all his life. Not only did he tie his own flies, but he had an innate ability to 'read' the river and know exactly where to cast his fly. As a young man he went into the refrigeration business in San Francisco but as rewarding as that business was, he longed to be closer to the rivers he grew up on and in 1947, he moved back to Eureka to make his home with his wife, Emily. He worked as a longshoreman for many years, retiring at the age of 65 to enjoy his fly fishing hobby full time. Nelson served on the Humboldt County Grand Jury and also served on the Fish and Game Advisory Committee. He will always be known as an advocate for local fishermen and for fighting to maintain access to the rivers for sportsmen. Nelson was preceded in death by his wife of 63 years, Emily Jane Wilson Rossig. He is survived by his niece Claire Vinson and her husband Eddie Vinson of Buda, Texas, who served as his dedicated caregivers for the last four months of his life. He is also survived by his sister, Irene Carlson, his sister-in-law, Leta Wilson, his nieces and nephews: Velva Angell, Henry Cooper, Albert James II, Myra Lamberson, Fred Lamberson, Jr., Colleen Guido, Dorothy Long, Elmer Rossig, Bill Rossig, Emil Pawlus, Richard Pawlus, Jill Kovacovich, Susan Hubbard, Rew E. Wilson, Sam Wilson, Shawn Wilson, Nancy Kelly Stevens, Kacey Kelly Davis, Patrick Kelly, Jennifer Wilson Chapman, Carolyn Wilson Crnich, Jeffrey Wilson, Christopher G. Wilson, and his Godson, Paul Angell as well as three more generations of nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind a whole river bar full of fishing buddies including Forrest Willis, Harold Neville, and Conrad Calimpong who comforted and amused him with fishing memories during his last months. Special thanks also to the members of the Yurok Tribe who so generously sent acorns, smoked salmon, eels and sturgeon when those were the only things Nelson wanted to eat. A graveside service for his family and friends will be held at Ocean View Cemetery on Wednesday, September 15, 2010 at 1 p.m. Please sign the guest book at

Hulett and Mollie Minyard, Ruby was born on February 22, 1914 in Newton, Texas. She and her sisters, Ruth and Ronnie, and brother, Willy, grew up in various Texas locations, where their father worked as a salesman and educator, and their mother operated boarding houses. The family eventually settled in Austin, where Ruby attended the, and became a lifelong UT supporter. Ruby loved teaching and working with children. Upon graduation from UT in 1935, she taught briefly in Texas, before moving to California in 1940, where she first worked as a substitute teacher and then as a full-time teacher in the Arvin Elementary School District. She later moved to Wayside School in Bakersfield, where she taught for 25 years until her retirement in 1974. Her marriage to Woodrow Smith in 1941 lasted 55 years, until Woodrow's death in 1996.

The Rev. Paul Locatelli

Fr. Paul L. Locatelli, S.J., Resident of Santa Clara, CA Fr. Paul Leo Locatelli, S.J., 71, Chancellor and former President of Santa Clara University, died July 12, 2010 at Sacred Heart Jesuit Center, Los Gatos. He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer earlier this year. Paul was a Jesuit for 47 years and a priest for 36 years. Paul was born in Santa Cruz on September 16, 1938 and grew up in Boulder Creek. Paul attended the University of California at Berkeley, 1956-58 and transferred to Santa Clara University, where he graduated with a degree in Accounting in January 1961. Paul served in the Army and while stationed at Fort Ord, began to think seriously about a vocation to the priesthood and religious life as a Jesuit. He wished "to serve God and help people spiritually" and viewed teaching as a "laudable profession," which as a priest, would also be "edifying." He entered the Jesuit Novitiate at Los Gatos on September 7, 1962. Following studies at Gonzaga University's Mount St. Michael's campus (1965-67), Paul began doctoral studies in business administration at the University of Southern California, completing his work in 1971 with a dissertation on ethical responsibility in the professional practice of accounting. He made theology studies at the Jesuit School of Theology, Berkeley, 1971-74, and was ordained to the priesthood in St. Mary's Cathedral, San Francisco, on March 23, 1974. Upon completion of studies, Paul returned to Santa Clara as Assistant Professor of Accounting. In addition to teaching he served as Associate Dean of the School of Business, 1976-78, and as Academic Vice President, 1978-86. In 1986 he was named Rector of the Jesuit Community of Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, and two years later returned to Santa Clara as the 27th President of the university. Paul was elected to four terms as President, a tribute to his outstanding abilities and balanced leadership style. Administrative evaluations were uniformly high, praising his energy, availability, and clear and forceful articulation of the University's mission. From the start as president, Paul ably coalesced the university around several themes: a need to connect more with the world outside the university and have a voice in the global dialogue; a need to increase student diversity to continue the Jesuit emphasis on education for all; and a need to tap into the rich resources of the university's Silicon Valley neighbors, entrepreneurs, and businesses. Paul was the public face of the university to the greater community and served on the boards of many local and national civic and educational organizations. He was the recipient of many awards, including the Distinguished Professor Award from the California Society of Certified Public Accountants, the 2009 David Packard Award, and the Catholic Church's "Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice" Award in 2001. In 2008 Paul stepped down as President after 20 years and assumed the position of Chancellor of the University and a newly established Jesuit position, Secretary for Higher Education and the Intellectual Apostolate, with an office in Rome. In this latter capacity Paul's role was to provide advice and input on education matters, encourage programs of international collaboration and convene periodic meetings of Jesuit university presidents . One of his last acts was to oversee an international meeting of Jesuit educators in Mexico City this spring. Paul was highly esteemed by his Jesuit and lay colleagues. His peers found him "generous, sensitive, and cooperative," and praised his "clear and accurate judgment" and leadership qualities. He was a deeply spiritual man. When he was diagnosed with the tumor in May, he wrote to friends, "I am looking at this as an opportunity to enrich and deepen my friendship with God, friends and family, and to better serve the people of God." Paul was preceded in death by his parents, Vincent and Marie (Piccone) Locatelli, and his sister-in-law, Carol Locatelli. He is survived by his two brothers and their families: Al Locatelli and Diane Kranich of Scotts Valley, and Harry and Lydia Locatelli of Santa Cruz. Nieces and nephews include Lynn Locatelli DVM of Watrous, NM and Russell Locatelli of McKinleyville, CA and Paul Locatelli, Amy Bosinger and Matthew Locatelli of Santa Cruz. Paul also leaves several grandnieces and grandnephews. A viewing will be held Friday, July 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mission Church on Santa Clara's campus at 500 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA 95053. A funeral Mass will be held that evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Mission Gardens, with a reception following. A private committal service will be held at a later date. Contributions can be made to the Paul Locatelli, S.J. Memorial Fund for Student Scholarships, Santa Clara University Development Office, 500 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA 95053-1400 or at http://www.scu.edu/give/how-to-give/make-your-gift/ Funeral arrangements by DARLING-FISCHER Chapel of the Hills in Los Gatos, CA.

Theron Alton "Joe" Thurston Sr.

Heaven became a little sweeter today, and the world a little lonelier for the family of Theron Alton Thurston, Sr. ("Joe"), age 83, of Southbury, as he passed through angels' arms into the cradle of heaven on September 12, 2010 at the Lutheran Home of Southbury. There he will reunite with the loved ones who went before him including his mother, Glenna Lorraine (Martin) Thurston, his father, Clarence Thurston, and his brother, Carl Thurston, Sr. Joe will be remembered as a gentle and giving man who continually gave to others. He always made time to teach those who wanted to learn about his passions of gardening, farming, building, and more recently researching his family genealogy. His breadth of knowledge spanned from calculating challenging mathematical problems in his daily work to making homemade maple syrup, and from recapping even minor historical events in detail, to coaxing roses, African Violets, and Christmas cacti from near death to beautiful blooms. Joe was born in Roxbury, Vermont on March 20th, 1927, the third son of Clarence and Glenna Thurston. In 1954, he married his love in a private ceremony in Sandgate, Vermont. He settled in Danbury, Connecticut with his new wife, Phebe Kathleen (Ramsey) Thurston of Walpole, New Hampshire and spent the rest of his life in the Danbury, New Milford, Oxford/Southbury areas. He spent the next 45 years working locally in construction as a carpenter. Through those years Joe started several companies including Daton Construction, Randston Builders, and most recently Quaker Log and Solar Homes based in Oxford, in which he acted as a dealer for both Lincoln Logs, Ltd. and Solar Additions. Joe built many homes throughout the area and always took pride in his craft. Joe retired and settled in Southbury with Phebe where he continued a family tradition of feeding hummingbirds and growing tomatoes. They joyfully celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2004 with a renewal of vows and a large gathering of family and friends. Besides his loving and devoted wife, he is survived by one son, Theron Alton Thurston, Jr. of Riverside, California, four daughters and sons-in-law, Theresa A. Volinksi and her husband James of Gaylordsville, Mary-Ellen Alling and her husband William of Waterford, Pamela K. Lionetti and her husband Ted of Bethel, and Christine R. Sweeney and her husband Sean of Oxford. Joe was blessed with eight grandchildren including James Volinski III of Westerly, RI, Sarah Thurston Briney of Canon City, CO, Gregory Brown of Santa Monica, CA, Erin Lionetti of Bethel, Navy MA Ted Lionetti III of Silverdale, WA, and Shane, Chad, and Shannon Sweeney, of Oxford, CT.
