Gladys Clark

Born May 1, 1916 in Wagner, South Dakota, Gladys Clark, resident of Sequoia Springs, passed from this world on September 17, 2010 at Redwood Memorial Hospital. With five brothers and one sister, Gladys was no stranger to hard times and hard work. She began her nursing career immediately after high school, graduating from Dakota Wesleyan University's Methodist State Hospital in 1938. But with her diploma and license in hand there were no jobs on the home front. Upon word that there was work "out west", she took the leap. She bought a steamer trunk, packed her things and boarded the train for American Falls, Idaho. Wearing the typical starched white uniform, white hose, white cap and immaculate, shiny white shoes, she began her nursing career. She met and married Steve Clark in American Falls. By 1955 the work scene in Idaho had not improved. So once again the family moved, this time to California. Gladys almost immediately went to work at the old Scotia Hospital and a few months later at the new Redwood Memorial Hospital. After twelve years in Fortuna the Clarks moved to Arizona where Gladys also pursued her nursing career and saved, repaired, dressed and collected china dolls. After retiring back to Fortuna, she did volunteer work delivering meals to seniors and shut-ins for several years. Steve and Gladys were married for sixty-four years. Gladys moved to Sequoia Springs in July of 2003 and enjoyed the assistance, support and friendship of the staff and residents there. Gladys was preceded in death by her beloved husband Steve, five brothers and a sister. She is survived by her daughters, Judy Santsche, her husband Rudy, Jean Stephens, her husband Bill: grand children, Kipp & Bobby Bertelsen, Tina Conti, Rick and Dirk de Hoop, Stephanie Diver: great grand children Megan, Michael, Matthew & Missie Mae Bertelsen, Kylie & Travis Conti, Hannah, Sarah & Henry de Hoop, Shyla Rae & Judson de Hoop, Kobus & Kaitlin Diver. In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to the Seventh Day Adventist Church's Depression Recovery Program at 2301 Rohnerville Rd., Fortuna, CA 95540, or a favorite charity.

Helen Eleanor (Zappa) (Moore) Lucas

In Memory of, Eleanor Zappa, Lucas, 12/7/1924 - 8/6/2010, Helen Eleanor (Moore) (Zappa) Lucas was born on December 7, 1924 in Hoopeston, III and passed away August 6, 2010 in Carmichael, Calif. She was born in a little white frame house in Hoopeston to John H. Moore and Helen E. Moore, and when her mother passed when she was 7, her father took her and her siblings to East Lynn, III. and raised them on a farm. Her favorite of all their animals were goats and she loved goat's milk!, Better known as Eleanor to family and friends, she will be remembered for her inspiring self-initiative, love of learning, and generosity., Eleanor was a self-trained artist of various medium, who had a thirst for knowledge. Throughout her life she skillfully sewed, crocheted, knitted, quilted, made dolls, and doll clothes, dresses, formals, suits, blankets, duvet covers, table cloths, and even office organizers. For a period of time, she had a leather-working studio where she crafted saddle bags, belts, and purses with her intricate and well-known Eleanor precision. When her hands could no longer work the leather, she quickly discovered computers, which she used to not only email, journal, and do research, but to create original and personalized greeting cards., At the same time, Eleanor was a gifted gardener, who grew just about everything. She loved fresh tomato sandwiches off the vine, and she canned and froze excess vegetables and fruits to stock her pantry or more often than not, to give as gifts. She also had a love for roses and always had rose gardens in her front and back yards. She was an avid reader and birdwatcher. Eleanor was also an unrelenting genealogist. She spent a number of years researching and meticulously tracing her ancestry back on the Moore side to 1426, and the Zappa side back to 1856. Her album of photographs and her journals are invaluable to family who survive her., Eleanor was consistently generous with her church, St. Joseph Catholic Church, after moving to Lincoln, Calif., and becoming a member in 1959. She proudly helped to fund the building of the new Saint Joseph Catholic Church in Lincoln. She was an integral part of the funeral ministry (Lazarus Society) and gave of her time freely by acting as President from 1987 to 1999. Eleanor was also an active member of the Altar Society and served as secretary for a year. She belonged to the church Quilting Club as well. She used her computer and graphic art skills to create numerous sympathy cards, and was instrumental in the annual church Christmas Boutique, and also made beautiful items to sell. One of Eleasnor's greatest joys as a devout Catholic was her participation in a special mass, officiated by Pope John Paul II, held at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, Calif., in 1987., Eleanor was preceded in death by two husbands, Stephen Zappa and Willis Lucas; two brothers and two sisters, John (Jack) Moore; Kenneth (Kenny) Moore; Mary (Betty) Moore; and Dorothy Moore Foote. From her first union, she is survived by three children, David Zappa (Lucy); Kenneth Zappa (Patty); and Bonnie Kyser (Duane). From her second union, she is survived by four stepchildren, Dennis Lucas (Valarie); Donald Lucas; Cynthia Cummings (Tom); and Andrew Lucas (Earlene). From both marriages, she is survived by a large and loving family of 12 grandchildren, 27 great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and dear friends. Eleanor's love for her family, unyielding faith, and curiosity about the world are her legacy, and these attributes will continue to inspire those of us who loved her to be life-long learners, as was she., A memorial will follow at a later date., Contributions in Eleanor's memory can be made to the

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 and Javier Gomez, John and Heather Morello, Joe Morello and 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. Joe Morello was laid to rest in a private burial on Friday, September 10, 2010. Family and friends are invited to attend a celebratory service to be held on Saturday, October 9, beginning with a 10:00 AM Mass at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church, 3 Oakdale Ave., Mill Valley. Remembrances may be sent to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or the charity of one's choice. In his memory, kiss your wife, hug your children, love your work, and eat a wonderful meal of fresh foods and fine wine.

Madeline Maxine Sowers

Madeline Maxine, (Grandma) Sowers, Madeline Maxine (Grandma) Sowers was born on October 19, 1916 to Walfred and Julia Anderson in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She had an older brother Phillip Kenneth who was four years old when she was born. He died at the age of five., Madeline loved to sing and had wanted to be an operatic singer. She made a few recordings, but her career never blossomed. However, in 1944, just before the end of, , love blossomed when she met and married a handsome young serviceman, Donavon Sowers. They were very happily married for 46 years until Donavon's death in 1991., Their son Phillip was born in 1945 and the family moved to California after the war ended. Their son, Steven, was born in 1955. They lived in Hawthorne and then Palos Verdes, CA. Madeline enjoyed being a homemaker and spent many years in the PTA. She was also very involved in her sons' Little League and Middle League where they made some very close and life-long friends. Madeline enjoyed managing the snack bar in Little League and was proud that it showed a profit for the first time and from then on. She was an honest woman!, Don and Madeline took many wonderful vacations in their motorhome. When Don retired in 1984, they decided to join some of their close friends who had moved to Yuma, AZ. So, they sold their home in Palos Verdes and two days after Don retired, the moving van came to take all their belongings to the new lovely mobile home that they had purchased. That last night in the house, with all their furniture on it's way to Yuma, they threw down some blankets and went to sleep on the floor. In the morning when they awoke, they realized they could have and should have slept in the motorhome, which was parked in their driveway. They laughed about that for years. They spent the next seven years enjoying many more fun times with their friends and traveling by motorhome around the U.S. with three trips to Alaska and the Northwest Territory., After Don died, Madeline traveled on her own by plane to visit her family. She would fly to see Phillip and his family in Santa Maria, Steven and his family in Seattle, WA, and her grandson, Brian and his family in Goodyear, AZ. She also flew a few times to visit other family members in Sioux Falls, SD. It was only in the last two years that she even needed assistance getting on the planes., She's spent at least a month every summer in Washington with Steven, Beth and their daughters. There was always lots of activity with the girls school events and soccer and other sports that they were all involved in. They'd take "Grandma" everywhere. She also spent every other Christmas with them. Opposite Christmas's were with Phil and his family. But in 2008 when her first great grandson was born, even though it was Phil's turn to have grandma for Christmas, she flew to Washington to be there for the arrival of Bradley Donavon Sutton. What a blessing that was for her., Madeline liked coming to church, but she had been deaf in one ear since childhood and increasingly hard of hearing in the other ear. She just couldn't understand the "new music" and wasn't able to sing without knowing the tunes. She understood a few words of Pastor Bloom's, enough to say, "Boy he sure is a funny man." She loved coming to church on Christmas and Easter services especially…. and, she knew the songs., Grandma also loved to get dressed up and go out on special occasions. Any occasion would do. And any place that served drinks was okay with her. On a couple of her birthdays, Phil and Pat were out of town and her grandson, Tony and his wife Julie took her out to dinner. She would have a couple of drinks and talk loudly, partly because of the drinks and partly because of her deafness. You never knew what she might say and Tony and Julie would laugh and hide their faces. Last year, Pat called Tony and jokingly told him that she and Phil would be out of town on Madeline's birthday. Tony said, "Well how convenient is that!!!" Pat laughed and said, "No, no, no, we'll be here, we just wanted to invite you guys to come and celebrate with us." Phil and Pat still laugh about that., Madeline was a tough lady. You have to be to live for 93 years. In 1986 while traveling with Don, Madeline had a heart attack. Then in 2005 while still living alone in Yuma, she was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Her doctor did not want her to live alone anymore, so her son Phil, at Pat's request, moved her to Santa Maria to live with them. In June of that year, Madeline fell and broke her hip and had hip replacement surgery. In 2007 she was treated for breast cancer. She recovered swiftly from all of these health issues. Everyone who knew her was amazed at her stamina, her sense of humor and her enjoyment and love of people., She especially expressed that love for her family of whom she was tremendously proud. She is survived by her son, Phillip, his wife Pat and their two sons, Brian Sowers and Tony Payne, Brian's wife, Susan, their children Brent and Rachel, Tony's wife Julie and their, about to arrive very soon, any day now, baby; Steven, his wife Beth, granddaughter Michelle, her husband Adam, great grandson Bradley Donovan, and another soon to arrive great grandbaby, and granddaughters Kristine, Claire and Stephanie., Madeline and Don loved to camp at Twin Lakes, CA, up around Bishop and Bridgeport in the High Sierras. Madeline asked that her ashes, along with Don's ashes be taken there., For all the laughs, all the memories, and all the love we've shared, we love you, we thank you, and we'll miss you, Mom, Grandma, Our Dear Friend., A memorial service will be held on Monday, September 27, 2010 at 4:30 pm at Pacific Christian Center., Arrangements are under the direction of Dudley-Hoffman Mortuary, Crematory and Memory Gardens.
