Anne M. Mann

Anne M. Mann of Danbury, age 75, a pioneer supporter of research into a rare and incurable blood cancer, died September 24 at Bethel Health Care Center. She was born in New York City, the daughter of the late John and Anna Seidenschwang, and grew up first in Astoria, Queens and later Lindenhurst on Long Island. Anne is survived by Richard O.

Cunningham of Danbury; and three grandchildren, Francis Whitten of Westborough and Brendan and Katherine Cunningham of Danbury. She was predeceased by her brother, Msgr. John C. Seidenschwang of Garden City, N.Y. She graduated Bishop McDonnell Memorial High School in Brooklyn, was a nursing student at the College of Mount Saint Vincent and graduated summa cum laude from Marymount College in Tarrytown, N.Y. in 1996. In recent years, Anne dealt with a number of health issues, most notably Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia, a blood cancer, broadly similar to, but somewhat less aggressive than multiple myeloma. Waldenstrom's is diagnosed in some five people in a million. It was largely unknown when she was diagnosed in 1996, and she quickly founded and directed the Research Fund For Waldenstrom's (RFW) to fund research and spread awareness of the disease. It remains the only fund dedicated solely to seeking a cure through research. As executive director of RFW, she walked the entire route of the Boston Marathon and led several walkathons and other events to raise money. She also addressed numerous support groups and medical conferences in the U.S. and abroad, and in 2006 was a keynote speaker at the International Multiple Myeloma conference of 1,400 physicians in Sydney, Australia. A memorial service is planned for 11 a.m. Friday, October 8 at Anthony's Lake Club in Danbury. Memorial contributions may be made to the Research Fund For Waldenstrom's at 63 Woodcrest Lane, Danbury, CT 06810.

PAYNE, CARROL and LEONA After over 70 years of marriage, it is impossible to write about one without the other. Carrol went peacefully at home with his sons at his side. He was preceded by his wife and soul mate for over 70 years, Leona. Carrol was born July 21, 1921 in Harrold, South Dakota, the oldest in a family of five children. From an early age, Carrol knew the meaning of hard work; helping his father and mother on the farm. Like most Midwesterners, they too, were hit hard by the Great Depression and Carrol often worked odd jobs (shining shoes, assistant janitor at his high school, and pin setter at the local bowling alley) to help the family make ends meet. After high school, Carrol held various jobs in both South Dakota and Wyoming and briefly attended the University of Wyoming in 1940. On September 19, 1940 at age 19, Carrol married his high school sweetheart, Leona Korkow and settled in Laramie, Wyoming. In early 1942, Carrol found employment working in various capacities for the Union Pacific Railroad finally ending up as a conductor. In the spring of 1943, a P38 Lighting flew over Laramie. Carrol decided to join the, Air Corps and earned his wings flying P51 Mustangs. At the war's end, Carrol was discharged and returned to Laramie, Wyoming to resume his position as conductor for the Union Pacific Rail Road in late 1945. During the war years, Leona was busy working as an accountant at various department stores. In 1947, she started her long career as an accountant in the medical profession working for a medical practice in Laramie and later in San Diego. Carrol always set out to better himself. During the post war years, he invested in several side ventures in addition to his rail road job including selling cars, investing in a gold mine, and raising chinchillas. In 1954, Carrol started a uranium prospecting venture. After nearly a year-and-a-half of Carrol being in the field prospecting and 15 years of marriage without children, Leona forced Carrol to sell off interests in the uranium holdings to allow them to adopt their first son, Gregory, in September of 1955, followed shortly thereafter with their second son, Lee, in January 1956. In mid-1959, Carrol, Leona and their sons left Wyoming for the warmer climate of San Diego, California. In late 1959, Carrol passed the California real estate exam and started selling real estate, however, in 1961, the stock market caught his attention which led to a 24-year career in the market as both a trader and a broker before finally retiring in June of 1985. After several years in the Clairemont area, the Payne family settled in La Jolla in 1963. During this time, Leona was passionately involved in her local church, All Hallows. She served as Women's Guild Vice President in 1965 and then as President in 1967. She was also a dedicated mother helping her sons in school and with Boy Scouts. She rejoined the work force as an office manager for a local medical practice in 1968 that she held until she retired in 1990. After her husband's retirement, Carrol and Leona enjoyed their golden years traveling, spending precious time with family, being doting grandparents and watching their favorite team, the San Diego Padres. They also continued to attend regularly for Sunday services at All Hollows Catholic Church in La Jolla where they had been parishioners since 1963. Leona Payne went peacefully to her Lord at home on Wednesday, March 31, 2010. Leona was preceded in death by her beloved grandson Casey Payne and 10 brothers and sisters. She is survived by her sisters Ruth and Esther and many nieces and nephews. Carrol peacefully followed Leona five-and-half-month later from their home on September 13, 2010, in the late afternoon with his sons in attendance. Carrol is survived by his two sisters Ruth and Mary in addition to his younger brother Ted. Carrol was preceded in death by his sister, Katherine. Carrol and Leona are survived by their sons, Gregory and Lee, and their families respectfully, wife Cheri, children Hannah, Matthew, Todd, Michael, Katie, and Lee's wife, Andrea, children Brittany and Benjamin, and five great-grandchildren. Carrol and Leona are deeply missed by those close to them. They will be interred together following a brief service at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, Point Loma, CA, on November 12th, at 12:00 p.m. For additional information, please contact Lee Payne at 858-395-5925 or email or Greg Payne 858-231-5446.




Claire Lerma After a brave battle with ovarian cancer, Claire made her transition quietly, softly and with grace on September 17th, 2010. Walking many paths during her time on this planet, she knew she was truly a child of God. Never satisfied with the status quo, Claire sought to better herself in whatever way she could. She truly was an emotional rags to riches story. Her childhood left a great deal to be desired, but she refused to fall prey to it. She always knew there was a better way to live, and focused on happiness, grace, dignity, and forgiveness, both of self and of others. Claire came to know herself well with the help of many teachers, for whom she remained grateful. The poem "IF" by Rudyard Kipling inspired her to keep her head about her in spite of the circumstances. She desired that her life would continue to influence friends and loved ones to be compassionate, understanding, non-judgmental and loving without conditions. Her wish for us now is that we all simply love. Traveling whenever she could, Claire especially loved to be on the water. She embraced being on an elegant cruise ship, watching the full moon dance on the ocean. Traveling through life she kept herself in forward motion, often challenging injustice. She accepted life on her own terms. Believing in total honesty she would say, "My life is an open book; what you see is what you get." Claire wished that you now be surrounded by her spirit. She said, "Call out to me, and I will respond to you, support you and love you." She sends blessing to all her friends and family. Blessings to Carlos Lerma, her wonderful mate, his mother, Lina, his sisters, Irma and Olga, his brother, Jorge. And blessings to their spouses and families. Blessings to her brother, Jon, her sisters, Mary, Sylvia, Peggy and Jane, and their spouses and families. She now joins her brothers, Tony and Larry in spirit. And to her corporate family, the Fireman's Fund team, who she shared a great deal, she sends blessings. "Mostly," Claire said, "I bless myself for my courage, dignity, patience and persistence. Finally, I can truly say, well done, Claire, well done."

Carolyn Rossetti

CAROLYN S(NANEY) ROSSETTI OCT. 24, 1947 - SEPT. 21, 2010 A JEWEL ON EARTH......A JEWEL IN HEAVEN The spectacularly beautiful jade green eyes, the ivory white teeth and the golden hair have left us earlier than anyone thought theyever would. Carol lost a spirited 5-month battle to a fairly uncommon and aggressive form of colon cancer. She passed peacefully in her sleep in her home surrounded by family. She is survived by her husband Arthur Rossetti, her two children Jason Rossetti of Manteca and Marisa Rossetti-Thomason of Livermore, her only grandchild Amelia Rose Thomason, her brother Dale Steelman of Rancho Cordova and a host of nieces and nephews. She was predeceased in death by her father Lee Naney and mother Buelah Naney. Carol was born in Salem, MO. and came to California with her parents at the age of 6 months. They settled in Escalon where she attended Dent Grammar School and Escalon High School. She was a good student, and in an era when girls were thought too delicate to play interscholastic sports showed herself to be a good athlete in the intramurals that were allowed. She was also a member of the cheer squad and was a varsity song leader. She earned an A.A. degree at Modesto Junior College before going to work at Market Wholesale in Modesto, now Bower Wholesale. Upon her marriage to Arthur in September of 1968 she moved to Hayward where her husband was finishing his studies. She had her favorite employment there working as the only office person for a small chain of movie theatres. It was their sole means of support at the time. She came back to Escalon in 1970 and resumed her job at Market Wholesale who was happy to have her back. She stayed there until the birth of her first child Jason in 1974. After that she did not work again until 1992 when she would work the grape crush at the old Petri Winery west of Escalon. Her last year there was 2002 when the winery was sold and the crushing operation was permanently shut down. Her retirement years were tending to her many pets, traveling and doting over her grandchild. She and her brother Dale spent 2-1/2 years taking care of their mother 24/7 so she wouldn't have to go in to a nursing home and could stay in her own house. Her favorite places to vacation were Pismo Beach, Disneyland and Hawaii. Her main hobby over the last 5 years of her life was her granddaughter. Life centered around Amelia and deservedly so. She also liked the arts and music, attending many concerts over the years and also many live theatre events. She truly thoughtthe Gallo Center in Modesto was a blessing because she no longer had to travel to San Francisco to see cultural events. Carol was a woman without any vices whatsoever. Her only excesses were her devotion to her children an her grandchild. Many have been as good a daughter as she was, but no one has ever been better. Many have been as good a mother as she was, but no one has ever been better. Many have been as good a grandmother as she was, but no one has ever been better. Many have been as good a wife as she was, but no one has ever been better. She did not deserve an early exit from life nor the way that it came. She exemplifies the saying only the good die young''. Services will be held Sundau. Sept 26th, 2:00 PM at Deegan Funeral Chapel in Escalon. A reception will be held at Grange Hall in Escalon afterwards. Please don't bring an entree or salad. Feel free to bring a dessert if you like. Remembrances can be made in the form of donations to the, specifying it go to colon & liver cancer research. An online guest book is available at

Dr. Mark Linenthal Jr.

Mark Linenthal jr., 88, much loved teacher, community builder, poet and hunter, died peacefully on September 5 surrounded by his family. Health problems made his last few years difficult but he will be remembered as someone extraordinarily alive. His own father said about Mark "I don't know anyone else who gets as much enjoyment out of life.", Born in Boston, Mass. Nov. 12, 1921 to Mark and Anna Linenthal, he was younger brother to Margaret and Michael. At 7, an award of Best Kiddet Camper at summer camp was an early sign that Mark was a highly social outdoorsman. Hunting trips with neighbors were his introduction to a life long passion. Mark's love of hunting was unusual in poetry circles but for him hunting made a connection with nature that was at the heart of his ecological beliefs. He went on to help found the San Francisco Green Party and to support ecological causes., Mark graduated from Roxbury Latin School and then from, as a political science major. At Harvard, Norman Mailer was a classmate and Mark met and married Radcliffe student Alice Adams. They would divorce in 1958 and Alice later became a well known short story writer and novelist. Mark later served in the Air Force as navigator in a B24 bomber during, . Shot down over Germany on his first mission in 1944, he was held in a Prisoner of War camp on the Baltic Sea. Conditions were spartan, not terrible, but it was frightening when Mark and all the Jewish prisoners were separated from the others and held until liberation by the Russians. During his imprisonment, Mark was able to read in the camp's library and said that E. M. Forster's Howard's End changed his life. The book convinced him to return to Harvard and get a masters in English. Mark described Forster as "...a social progressive and a nature mystic. He wrote about people I knew, that I could believe in.", Mark and Alice moved to Paris. He took classes at the Sorbonne on the G.I. Bill. Norman Mailer arranged a trip to Spain for Mark and Alice. They brought money with them to help writers in the resistance, smuggling it over the border in a toothpaste tube., Graduate work at Stanford University made for a move to California, a move he found crucial, saying "On the east coast you live in time; on the west coast, in space." At Stanford, he studied under the formidable Yvor Winters. Mark's son, Peter Adams Linenthal , was born in 1951. Peter remembers Mark as "...the best father in the world, and I think he was a great father to many, many people." Mark began teaching at San Francisco State College in 1954 and would teach in the Creative Writing Department there until 1992. He was an extremely gifted teacher, playful and serious, never pedantic, totally approachable, overflowing with lively examples, and able to help students discover what they were trying to say. He often recited his favorite poems in their entirety by heart in class, never tiring of Donne's Riding Westward, Hopkin's The Windhover, Stevens's Sunday Morning, and Oppen's The Little Hole, always finding something new to say about them. He really inhabited these poems. During the trial over censoring Allen Ginsberg's poem, Howl, Mark testified that the poem was not obscene and that it had "...changed the expectations of what a poem could be.", He was director of the Poetry Center at State from 1966-1972 and had important friendships with George Oppen, Stan Rice, Anne Rice,Kathleen Fraser,Beverly Dahlen, Jim LeCuyer, Rob Halpern, Herbert Blau, Anatole Anton,Whitney Chadwick, Peter Berg, Art Bierman, Bob Hass, Joyce Jenkins, Huey Johnson, R.G. Davis, Herbert Wilner, Mark Harris and many others. In the student strike of 1968-69, he sided with the students in protests that led to the creation of Black and Ethnic Studies Departments. While director, he worked with Julia Vose of Poetry in the Schools and Dr. Harry Weinstein of Mt. Zion Hospital in developing the Writer in Residence in the Community Program. For 11 years the program offered seniors and cancer patients poetry writing events. Poetry was offered as original art that patients could make of what they liked, rather than as a good-for-you pill. Mark worked with film maker David Myers on a film portrait of poet Theodore Roethke, In a Dark Time. Poet and teacher Kathleen Fraser remembers that in the 1970s "Mark was one of 3 guys on the 20 guy/1 woman Creative Writing Dept. faculty to give unequivocal support to the Women Writers Union in their polite but firm request to study more modernist women writers as Major Authors and helped us win this opening of dialog." Mark and philosophy professor Anatole Anton co-taught The First Person in Poetry and Philosophy, a class which found connections between two subjects not often paired. In 1987 at S.F. State, Mark performed in The Life of the Automobile, R.G. Davis' adaptation for the stage of Ilya Ehrenburg's socialist novel., In 1959 Mark married Frances Pain and became stepfather to her sons Lincoln, Duncan and Louis Pain. Louis recently wrote, "Mark enthusiastically supported my highly questionable decision to become a musician. I won the lottery when Mark Linenthal decided to marry my mom." Mark and Frances' marriage was strong and dynamic. Frances met Mark as a devoted student, then grew to become an eminent poet and feminist scholar, writing under her maiden name, Frances Jaffer.

ENGLISH, ELEANOR REBECCA Nov. 7, 1916 to Sept. 5, 2010 Eleanor English was born in Seattle to Archie and Ella McCallum. She graduated in 1934 from Ballard High School and maintained a lifelong friendship with her high school friend and Rainbow Girl buddy, Clara Eldridge. She attended Linden College in Oregon, then moved to San Diego and worked for Bell Telephone. In San Diego, she met and married a young Marine officer, Lowell Edward English. In the course of his 31 year military career, they lived in dozens of locations, although the first, American Samoa, was the most exotic and adventuresome. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Eleanor and the other dependents, were whisked off the island by a cruise liner in the dead of night, with nothing but the clothes on their backs. For the rest of her life, Eleanor loved nothing so much as traveling to foreign places, and even at the age of 93, still kept travel brochures on her desk with the hope of yet another trip. After a last duty station as Commandant at MCRD , Lowell and Eleanor retired to and remained in San Diego, which they loved, until the end of their lives. Together they had wonderful adventures and friends. They especially loved the annual group caravans to Baja for Thanksgivings of festivities and they loved to give hilarious themed parties for those friends. Eleanor was a bit shy, but had quite a twinkle in her eye, a wonderful laugh, and a love of fun and silliness. She was very creative and artistic, painting, drawing, sewing, doing needlework and working with stained glass. Above all, she loved to spend time with her family. Her nickname in the family was The Roadrunner, for the verve and zest with which she tackled all activities. She always wanted to keep going to see what was around the next corner or over the next mountain. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lowell, her brother James McCallum, and her niece Kathy Varjas. She will be lovingly remembered by her children Becky Crockett of San Diego, Bruce English of New York City, and Kay English of Seattle; grandchildren Kim, Stephenie, Jeff and Jennifer and great-grand-children Nick and Araceli as well as nieces and nephews Mary Brunstad, John McCallum and Jim McCallum. At her request, there will be no memorial service. Remembrances may be made to the, . The family are very grateful for the kind and loving care of Jackie Soto and Connie Vega during the last year of her life.




Enid Chasanoff A long-time Marin County resident, passed away peacefully September 11, 2010 at the age of 84 in her Greenbrae residence. Enid -- devoted mother to two, a loving grandma to three, and an amazing friendto many -- will always be remembered for her passion and enthusiasm for life. A long-time lover and creator of the arts, Enid's skilled work has been seen recently in fairs, parades, art galleries, and on the Internet. Her first foray into film (at 83 years old), a short movie titled "Leah and the Horse" (available on YouTube) received widespread acclaim and became "Official Selections" at the Women in Film Festival in Vancouver, B.C and the San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York Short Film Festivals. The dolls showcased in the movie later won "Best in Show" at the Marin County Fair in July of 2010. Enid was adored by her friends and family for her innate artistic ability, amazing energy, kind heart, and her endless optimism and encouragement. Enid was always up for anything --whether it was traveling the world, attending a new art class, parading through weekend garage sales, or partaking in anything involving her grandkids -- and always approached whatever was next in her storied life with such zeal and excitement. As she recently noted to local press over the success of "Leah and the Horse, "I've been given such a gift, I'm kind of available for anything. But when I die, I want people to say, 'That poor thing knocked herself out and had fun right to the end.'" Enid is survived by her children Lisa and Eric, her son-in-law Carl, and her grandchildren Matt, Ben, and Grant. A memorial service will be scheduled sometime in November.

Ella Irene Penner

Ella Irene Penner 1921 - 2010 Ella Irene Penner of Shafter, California died of a silent heart attack on September 22, 2010 in Glendale, California at the age of 89 years and 7 months. She was born on February 22, 1921 in Hepburn, Saskatchewan, Canada to Abram B. and Elizabeth (Janzen) Wiebe. She was the youngest of 12 siblings. The family lived on a farm and some of her earliest memories are of a piano and organ which several of her sisters played. Her father played violin and accordion by ear and taught these to several of the children. He was known for playing at barn dances in the community and the older children played for dances in a family band. This was considered a "problem" at that time since dancing was frowned upon in the Mennonite communities. So much music was in the house that it made a distinct impression on Ella at an early age. Her mother died of cancer when Ella was 3 1/2. When she was 5 her father began the process of taking the family to Milwaukee, Wisconsin but he was not able to cross the border because of a disease. He told the children to go ahead (the oldest were adults) and said he would join them when he got well. Soon after, he died in Canada. Ella was given to the oldest sibling, her sister Annie, who was married to Henry Hildebrand. There was no formal adoption in those days but Ella was raised by Henry and Annie as if she was their child. She kept her last name -- Wiebe. Henry became sick with a lung problem and the doctor advised him to move to a hot, dry climate. The family knew of other Mennonites living in the Shafter, area so he moved there and became a farm laborer. He thrived in the climate and became strong. The rest of the family followed him to Shafter in 1926: his wife Annie, their daughter Alvina, their son Bill, and Ella. The family joined the Shafter Mennonite Brethren Church. Ella grew up on a farm outside Shafter on Fresno Avenue and attended Shafter grade school and Shafter High School. She was a Campfire Girl and was gifted with the ability to draw. She taught herself piano by ear. During high school, and shortly after, she worked in a photography studio in downtown Shafter. She knew her future husband Johnny H. Penner because he had grown up on a farm next to the Hildebrand's. During World War II Johnny was a conscientious objector and was put to work in several Civilian Public Service wildfire-fighting camps in California. Ella married Johnny on December 1, 1944. He transferred to work in a psychiatric hospital in Salem, New Jersey, so they both worked there on the nursing staff until the end of the war. Ella loved to play piano throughout her life and had an original style: rich, florid, and vigorous, with a Southern Gospel flavor. Beginning in the early 1950s Johnny and Ella began their life-long commitment to the Park Lane Chapel (corner of Park and Mayer Lanes north of Shafter). This was an outreach-ministry of Shafter's Mennonite Brethren Church. Johnny was the superintendent of the small chapel and directed the services, led the singing, and often preached himself. All the while Ella taught Sunday School and played gospel piano for all occasions. Ella became interested in home decorating and furniture; specifically with Early American (Colonial) and Victorian styles. Though her house was small she converted it into a quaint and charming "storybook cottage" full of knick- knacks, art, antiques, and old furniture. Ella was fascinated with gardening and turned her backyard into a "secret garden" of lush vines, ferns, trees, and flowers. In the Spring of 2002 her garden won first place in the Community Chest's "small garden" category and she held an open house for Kern County visitors. Ella worked for years as the supper cook at Kern Crest Manor in Shafter. She was a wonderful cook and her home dinner parties became legendary. Johnny died of a heart attack on November 7, 1990. Ella became a Bible teacher and was known for her inspiring testimony. People sought her out to have her pray for them. She also learned foot massage and had many clients. She was unable to continue taking care of the house and garden by August of 2002 and moved to her son's house in Burbank for six months, and then to Broadview Residential Care Center in Glendale, CA (a retirement home). In 2005 she moved to Broadway Manor, a Skilled Nursing facility next door, where she lived the rest of her life. She became a much-loved resident and the Vice-President of the facility's Residence Association. Ella is survived by her son, Richard (Rick) James Penner (63) of Burbank, CA; her daughter, Elizabeth (Betsy) Lorraine Jost (62) of Fresno, CA; her 3 grandchildren: Geoffrey Jacob Jost (40) of Pasadena, CA; Kate Mary (Jost) Bucher (35) of Lancaster, PA; and Leah Renee Jost (33) of Olympia, WA; and 2 great-grandchildren: Sarah Bucher (7); and Ben Bucher (5). Visitation for Ella will be held at Peters Funeral Home from 2-8 p.m. on Monday, September 27, 2010. A graveside service will begin at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at Shafter Memorial Park and will be followed by a memorial service at Shafter Mennonite Brethren Church beginning at 11:00 a.m. Please sign Ella's guest book at, Peters Funeral Home - Shafter

HALL Jr., HARRY LANGFORD Harry Langford Hall, Jr., more commonly known as "Lang", passed away September 12, 2010 with his wife Faye and his two daughters, Lori-Dale and Elisabeth at his side. He was 72 years old. Lang was born at Mercy Hospital on March 18, 1938, the son of Sara-Dale and Harry Hall, Sr. He grew up in the Loma Portal area of Point Loma. He was a true native San Diegan who, except for his college and service years, lived in San Diego County all of his life. He graduated from Point Loma High School in 1956. He was a graduate of Menlo College. Following service in the United States Army, he returned to San Diego where he was employed as an investment manager for First National Bank for several years. He married Norine McKinny and had three children; Lori-Dale, Daniel and Elisabeth. When the marriage ended, the friendship continued harmoniously for the rest of Lang's life. In 1981 Lang married Faye Kitchen. They were married for 29 happy, productive years. Lang was one of the original founders of Rice, Hall, James and Associates, an investment management firm. Lang worked there as the trader until the firm grew and was sold to a much larger company at which time Lang retired. After his retirement Lang and Faye continued living in the Sunset Cliffs area of Point Loma for many years. In 2003, they moved to Fallbrook where they raised avocados. Lang had enjoyed his life by the ocean as well as his mountain cabin in Idyllwild, but he adapted easily to the country life. He thoroughly loved having friendly neighbors, working in the gardens, living with wildlife, and the outdoor activities. Lang always had an eye for a great horse and along with Faye, spent more than 25 years breeding and showing beautiful Arabian horses, some of which won national titles. Although he did not ride, he enjoyed being around the horses, attending and volunteering at the horse shows. A natural born people lover, no one could ever say a negative thing about him. Always hospitable, always affable and frequently hilariously funny, a better man never existed. He loved his wife with great devotion, he was a dedicated parent to his children and was maybe the world's best grandparent. He also thoroughly enjoyed his horses, dogs and birds and expressed his appreciation for animals by donating generously to causes like the San Diego Zoological Society. He was also an ardent supporter of the arts in San Diego. When stricken with brain tumors twice in the 1970's, Lang courageously not only survived but overcame the associated disabilities from the operations. For the next 30 years he enjoyed travelling to many other states and countries, raising his children, and then watching his grandchildren grow. He could frequently be found on the rail at a horseshow watching his horses and most Wednesday nights found him in the congregation at the Christian Science Church. He made friends wherever he went. He was an especially sweet guy who saw the good in everyone. He loved gardening, and he enthusastically enjoyed cruise ship trips. He was also a great fan of the San Diego Chargers and the Padres. Lang is survived by his wife, Faye, his son Daniel of Los Gatos, his daughters Lori-Dale Hall Birch of Solana Beach and Elisabeth Hall Fitzsimmons of Encinitas. Lang has six grandchildren; Courtney, Austin, Cannon, Malloy, Harlan and Brecken. He leaves behind a sister, Sally Tracht, and a step- grandmother, Ethel Hall. He also leaves behind a multitude of great friends, co-workers, and neighbors. He is preceded in death by his mother and father. At his request, there will be no memorial service. The family asks that donations be made to the Zoological Society of San Diego, Attn: Memorial Gifts, P.O. Box 120551, San Diego, CA 92112, or to the scholarship fund of Principia College in Elsah, Illinois.

Herbert C. Rafetto III

Herbert C. Rafetto III, 58, passed away suddenly on September 9, 2010. A 16-year resident of Palm Springs, he was known extensively throughout the community, and his passing was a shock to us all. Herb was born July 25, 1952 in Lowell, Mass., the son of Herbert C. Jr. and Jean E. Rafetto. A 1970 graduate of Kittanning Senior High School, he received his BS from the University of Denver in Hotel Restaurant Management in 1974. Herb then went on to a 25-year career for the Hyatt Hotel Organization, culminating in General Manager positions at both the Hyatt Hotel in Carmel, and our own Hyatt Hotel in downtown Palm Springs. During that time, Herb built relationships that have lasted through the years. He was President of the Palm Springs Tourism Board from 1992-1995 and a board member of the Chamber of Commerce (1992-1996). As a leader in the Hotel Industry he frequently spoke at City Council meetings representing the Palm Springs Hospitality Industry. Whether a room attendant, City Council Member, or a General Manager, it was easy to appreciate and remember Herb's easy manner and charm, and the warm attention he paid to the people in his life. After his career in Hotel Management, Herb applied his talents to Retail Management, leading two upscale clothing outlets to record sales; and then he focused on vacation sales, where he was awarded four top sales honors. Just a few years ago he was lucky enough to meet Susan, and for the last nine years she made him perhaps as happy as he had ever been. No one knows better than she the passion Herb always held for music. Although he had a wide range of taste, he was, in his heart, an avid Dead Head and had an encyclopedic knowledge of the Grateful Dead's music. Any visit to his home included personal sing-a-longs to their greatest hits. Finally, though, his dream was to perform; and he set out on that journey with a banjo, a good friend, Dan Regeimbal. His dream came true when they performed at a major hotel weeks before his death, and once again around a campfire with friends the night before he left us. For him, if he had to leave, the timing couldn't have been better, for those of us who knew and loved him, there could never be a good time for him to leave. He will be missed immensely. Knowing Herb, though, he is probably somewhere playing his banjo with Jerry Garcia, sipping on a single-malt, and laughing-it's certain that he is laughing. Herbert C. Rafetto III is survived by his wife, Susan; his daughter, Natalie, whom he loved dearly; his step-son, Brandon; his parents; his sisters, Sue Morgan, Marti Kubatko, and Judy Jack; numerous nieces and nephews; his friends too numerous to mention; and his dog, Jerry. A memorial gathering will be held in October with close friends where, according to his wishes, they can all tell funny stories about Herb. "Ramble on Herbie, settle down easy"

Although, Jacob as said, he pushed his father's buttons, he was always the light of his father's eyes. So many memories as going down Sunset strip, yelling "what's up" to people. He will be greatly missed by all of us in Las Vegas and around the world. Vegas will not be the same without Jacobs smile.......... Placed by Lisa and friends in Vegas.

Over the years Jay developed the ability to play by ear and became known as an accomplished jazz pianist. He additionally had the ability to play most any reed instrument; a skill which came in handy throughout his life., Jay's early college years were spent studying music at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation he joined the Navy Jazz Band and toured for four years. After the Navy, Jay returned to school to study medicine at, where he met his wife, physician Lorraine McGee. They subsequently practiced in Fort Bragg and Arcata California where they had their children., Jay focused on family practice and later emergency medicine before moving the family to Loomis, California in 1976., Jay continued to play music on a daily basis for his family, and on weekends with groups of friends for neighborhood parties. He also occasionally played for local school productions such as 'Hello Dolly', and 'Annie Get Your Gun' at the Music Circus in Sacramento., While living in Loomis, Jay established a medical practice in Folsom, California, and played a major role in running the house as his wife began a grueling medical residency program. After many years in his own practice, he joined FHP as a resident physician until he decided to work fewer hours, moving part time to a public medical clinic in Sacramento., Jay and Lorraine retired in 1997, then promptly sold their house and purchased a motor home. They spent the next few years driving around the USA and Canada and also traveling to over 40 countries on all 7 continents, attending jazz festivals, visiting friends and family, and exploring new intriguing cultures., Done with living on the road, Jay and Lorraine next moved to an active senior community in Rio Vista, California. Jay immediately placed an ad looking for musicians of all skill levels, and formed the 'Trilogy Jazz Band'. This not only helped Rio Vista have access to great music, but many senior residents rekindled their interest in instruments they used to play, or picked up new ones. The Trilogy Jazz Band today numbers some 60 members and continues to perform in the Rio Vista area., When Lorraine had a stroke in 2007, the couple moved to Moss Beach, California to live in a home-style environment near their eldest son and grand children; she passed away in early 2008. In this same home environment, surrounded by family, on August 3, 2010 Jay passed away during the night.

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.

Patricia Marie Cross

Patricia Marie Cross (Pat) passed away quietly in her La Quinta home on August 23, 2010 with her husband of 58 years, Donald G. Cross at her side. She was born August 31, 1932 to Eleanor and Walter Clasen in St. Louis, Mo. She is survived by her devoted husband and three grown sons, Donn - Nancy, Steven - Pearl, Guy - Laura. She was a loving grandmother to Kara Cross Leonard, Ryan Leonard, Dustin Cross, Gil Gonzales, Stephanie Mendoza, Gary Mendoza, Breanna Mendoza, Mia Cross, Bryan Cross and Cody Cross. She loved her role as a great grandmother (AKA "GG") to Alissa Leonard, Hannah Gonzales and Kaleb Cross McHan. She loved kids and they loved her. She loved having her "Grand dog", Trigger, for sleep overs at Grandma's house from one to ten days. Trigger loved it too. While still in high school in St. Louis Pat began a working career as Santa's helper in a major St. Louis department store. She would go on to become a model for women's clothes in the same store. Following her marriage to Don Cross on April 26, 1952 she worked for the Westinghouse Electric Corporation in St. Louis. In 1955 Pat and Don left St. Louis for California where they heard the streets were "paved with gold, there were oranges on every tree" and lots of opportunity for electricians, Don's working trade. The family settled first in Covina, moved to Pomona and put down deeper roots in Claremont, Calif. in 1963. During the Claremont years Pat became very active in Republican politics becoming President of Claremont Republican women. A rapidly expanding building market with plenty of electrical work brought Pat and Don to the Coachella Valley in 1979 and they have made this their permanent home since then. Pat continued her interest in politics and joined the Palm Springs Republican Assembly. She also served as President of the Rancho Mirage Republican Women and was a founding member and officer of the East Valley Republican Women and modeled in fund raising fashion shows for the group. Her Republican involvements led to an office position with Republican congressman Alfred "Al" A. McCandless who served as a California Representative to the U. S. Congress from 1983 to 1995. Pat's dedication and attention to detail spurred McCandless to appoint her to the position of district Chief of Staff. In that role she managed the Riverside and Palm Desert Congressional Offices. She often filled in for the congressman at meetings and events, speaking for his office as the occasion required. She held that position for approximately twelve years until the congressman stepped down from office. While heading the district staff for McCandless she was treated to a VIP tour of the White House. She has personally met Presidents Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, has toured Air Force One, the Presidential aircraft and attended Republican National Conventions, twice as a voting delegate. She was invited to join the staff of retired President Gerald Ford but graciously declined to follow other interests. Following her stint of duty with McCandless she acted as a public relations point for Browning - Ferris Industries, the second largest waste management firm in the country. She was a Director in the La Quinta Historical Society and active in the La Quinta Museum, a Director of the La Quinta Chamber of Commerce, appointed to the California State Council on Developmental Disabilities by then Governor Pete Wilson. She loved NASCAR racing and even sponsored a car in the La Quinta Soap Box Derby. During a five year battle with cancer Pat never lost her positive take on life.

Paul grew up in Lancaster, graduated from Antelope Valley High School in 1941, and proudly enlisted in the, in August, 1941. Some of his most vivid memories came from being stationed at Henderson Field, Guadalcanal in 1943, where he served as aviation mechanic, aerial gunner, plane captain, and flight engineer for a Black Cat squadron, flying nightly missions in the Southwest Pacific. He relished the opportunity to help protect his country during, , and was fiercely patriotic. In 1944, stationed stateside in Alameda, Paul was able to work after hours fixing watches in his Grandfather's jewelry store in Oakland. This experience proved invaluable, as he learned the intricacies of the jewelry business under the watchful eye of his successful grandfather, Lem Cheney. Following his honorable discharge from the Navy, Paul joined the American Jewelry Company in 1949, and with a strong work ethic and natural aptitude for good business sense, he enjoyed a long, fulfilling career as a jeweler and retail business owner.

The tradition continues today with son-in-law Carl Saenger at the helm of American Jewelry Company. Paul also participated in the 20/30 Club of Bakersfield and was a Mason with Libertas Lodge. Like a multi-faceted gemstone, Paul had more than one side to his personality. His many interests included collecting pocket watches, photography, traveling, hunting, current events, tennis, poker, and all things World War II. He dearly loved his ranch property north of Bakersfield where for many years friends and family gathered on weekends, and Paul could wear cowboy boots, ride horses, help neighboring ranchers rope and brand their cattle, watch the stars at night, and teach his grandchildren the finer points of shooting a rifle, and driving a Jeep. He called it "a little bit of heaven." Paul conducted his life with dignity, integrity, and a positive attitude. He loved his family, valued his friends, and he will be deeply missed. The loss of his presence leaves a tremendous void in the lives of those left behind. Paul is survived by Clair, his loving wife of 47 years; son, Paul Campbell (Linda); daughter, Becky Saenger (Carl); son, Scot Campbell (Abby); grandchildren, Tricia Reily (Mike), Jay Campbell (Nikki), Amy Saenger, Mandy Saenger, Mark Saenger, Sara White (Paul), Stephen Campbell (Jennie), Ashley Campbell, Allison Mosley (Johnny); and great-grandchildren, Kiara Campbell, Rhiannon Campbell, and Cara Campbell.
