Elizabeth Ryan Minor

December. 20 1946- October. 15, 2010 Liz died peacefully Friday afternoon, at home, with her family in attendance as they had been throughout her brief illness. When she received the diagnosis and its prognosis, in May, ofCreutzfeldt-Jakob disease she decided two things. First, she set about contacting friends from throughout her life hoping to hear from them and inviting those that could to come visit her while she still had the ability to get out and enjoy their company. A surprising number responded, coming from far and near, bringing much joy to her in the months she had left. They in return received joy and much inspiration from her spirited battle with this presently incurable disease. Second, she gave permission for herself and her records to be studied in the hope that Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease will someday be understood and families will no longer have to endure the ravages of this disease. Liz is survived by her husband Chuck, her daughter Jill and her sister Virginia Hanley. Her sisters-in-law Sue Sherrer, Jane Minor, and Jane's sister Virginia Rowen were devoted and much appreciated care givers, giving generously of their time and love to help out. Our heartfelt thanks go to them and the many neighbors, friends and relatives who became a steady stream of visitors bringing warm hugs, meals, gifts and "much Chocolate" thus brightening her often dreary Humboldt days. A Eureka native, Liz graduated from St. Bernard Schools of Eureka and Dominican University of San Rafael. She spent a number of years in Tucson, Arizona, where among other things she worked for the Mayor of Tucson. Wanting to be nearer family she moved to San Francisco where she worked for the Orthopedic Residency Training Program at St Mary's Hospital. After their marriage, she and Chuck returned to Eureka to raise a family. Here she worked for the Center For Child Advocacy, becoming the Director, and then worked as an independent contractor to the Superior Court of California Humboldt County until forced early retirement. She will be remembered for her wit, intelligence, creative style and her devotion to family, friends and coworkers. She was a world traveler; some memorable trips included Scotland with five cousins searching out their ancestral home, Italy, joining Jill who studied there one summer and Paris with her sister and their daughters after Jill graduated from the University of Arizona She was a creative and outstanding cook, a book artist and member ofNORBAG, a letter writer who never forgot a birthday, an avid reader and longtime Book Club member who kept a record of every book she ever read. A Service for Elizabeth will be held at St Bernard Church on Friday October 22, 2010 at 2PM. The family requests that in lieu of flowers a donation, in Liz's name, be made to Hospice of Humboldt, the Caring Bridge web site or a charity of your choice.

Ikuko Mayeda

Ikuko Mayeda, 84, lost her 13-year battle to Alzheimer''s Disease Thursday, Oct. 14, 2010. Iku was born in Selma, Calif., and raised on her family''s farm in Laton, Calif. In 1941, because of Executive Order 9066, her family was relocated to the Fresno Assembly Center, and ultimately to Jerome, Ark. While at the relocation camp, she earned her high school diploma. After, , her family returned to Laton. Shortly after, Iku moved to Los Angeles, where she enrolled in a costume and design school and worked in a sewing factory. Additionally, she babysat for Hollywood actor Irene Tedrow and served as a Sunday School teacher at the LA Betsuin. Then in 1958, Iku met Katstuto "Jonny" Mayeda - they were married in Watsonville, Calif., in October 1958. They lived in San Luis Obispo and raised three sons. As a stay at home mom, she sewed for countless people in the San Luis Obispo community, including the design and sewing of wedding and bridesmaid dresses. For some people, she sewed entire wardrobes, including her own. Iku came from a family of ministers who served at several Buddhist Temples in Japan. She continued that heritage by fully embracing the Buddhist way of life. She was a Dharma school teacher, YBA leader, Fujinkai member/officer and helped organize a number of Buddhist retreats. During the periods when no minister was assigned at the San Luis Obispo Buddhist Temple, she became the go-to person for all newcomers. Iku supported her children by attending all their sporting events and served for a number of years as a Cub Scout Den Mother. She also had a love for fishing, crabbing, abalone hunting and clamming in the local waters. Iku had an excellent singing voice and was influential in starting the neighborhood Christmas caroling group. She could play a number of musical instruments, including the violin and piano, and later in life taught herself to play guitar. Fluent in Japanese, she was often asked to act as a translator at local hospitals. Iku was more than a great wife and mother - she was a second mother, life counselor, spiritual guide and friend to many. Her infectious laugh was a reminder of life''s goodness. Iku is survived by her three sons Timothy of Ventura, Calif., James and Patrick of San Luis Obispo; brother, Mitsuo (Sumi); and numerous nieces and nephews.

Jeanette Betsy Popovich Jan was born in Seattle, on March 1, 1913, to Katherine and Roger Pinneo and passed away peacefully on September 25, 2010. For almost 98 years, our Mom lived every day in living color. She never wanted to miss a moment of time with family and friends. Just a week before she passed away, Jan attended her grandson's football game to watch him play. She loved time around the dining room table telling tales about her travels and adventures in the 20's, 30's and 40's. Her working career began in San Francisco as Asst. Personnel Director at the White House Department Store followed by numerous other assignments including the S.F. Convention & Tourist Bureau and in the Office of Emergency Management during World War II. Mom survived the bombings in Shanghai, China, in the 30's while working as secretary to the U.S. Commercial Attaché (which was an endless source of fascinating stories and recollections). She would never hesitate to break out in a song or dance to entertain us, which would always produce big smiles and lots of laughter. Jan had many adopted children and friends who will remember her living example of great courage, creativity, fun and exuberance for life. She loved being with "the kids," which included her own as well their friends. Her cheerful spirit will be deeply missed and long remembered by her four loving children - Renee deBruyn, husband Marcel Barel and daughter Gabrielle Barel of Lee Canyon, NV; Gail Leah deBruyn and David BooCoo Haas of Junction, TX; Patti Popovich and husband Paul White of Alameda, CA; Mike Popovich, wife Nancy Sheppard and her "number one" grandson Tony Popovich of Kentfield, CA and adopted daughter Carolyn Brocco Boucher of San Anselmo, CA. Jan's siblings, Beulah, Katherine and Roger, all predeceased her as well as her husband Steve. Surviving are her loving niece, Bronwen Davis, husband Stan Lindskog of Redmond, WA, loving nephew Roger Pinneo and wife Diana, of Snohomish, WA; nephews Bill Monsen and wife Catherine of Honolulu, HI; Butch Monsen, Dan and Eva Sollars, Steve and Candy Sollars, and Clifford Davis of Astoria, OR; Rolin and Barbara Sollars of Prosper, TX. Her family greatly appreciates and thanks the Aldersly Nursing Staff for their loving care and assistance. Her ashes will be spread on the ocean west of the Golden Gate Bridge near her beloved husband, Stephen Popovich.

We've shared the photos and stories so they'd get an idea of who Uncle Mike was and how much you're missed. The kid you were, the guy you were becoming, the man you didn't get a chance to be... They know, we know, and we all wish so very much that you were still with us. We are sooo thankful for the memories we have; they are priceless and can't be taken away. So, to this day, we still think of and remember our beloved son, brother, nephew, cousin, grandson, uncle, and friend in the fondest way possible. Love remembers and endures, we still miss you... Mom, Dad, Michelle & Family

Mildred Claire Morrison

August 20, 1922- October 18, 2010 Mildred Morrison passed away quietly in the early morning hours of October 18, 2010. Her family and friends grieve her loss, but know that she is happy, standing hand-in-hand with the love of her life. Her husband Bud (Louis Arch "Bud" Morrison, Jr.) left the world far too young, in October 1980. The life that she and Bud built, the happiness they shared, and the family they raised together, defined Mildred's life for nearly 70 years. For the love of Bud, she endured fire, flood, and the loss of a child. Thirty years after his death, her face still lit up when she spoke of him, her smile never as bright as when she recalled stories of their times together. Mildred is survived by her brother, Bob, of Loomis; her four children: Kathy Fiscus of Chico (husband Tom), Ken Morrison of Oakland (wife Laurie), Sylvia Keller Seagle of Chico (husband Ed), and Ellen Morrison of San Carlos (husband Ken Lann); and her five grandchildren: Mike Fiscus, Rob and Ryan Morrison, Mallory Morrison Lann, and Ashley Keller; and extended family members. She is pre-deceased by her sister Lois and brother Jim. Her family would like to extend its warmest thanks to Mitzi Morrison, recent widow of Bud's brother Gayle. Mitzi and Gayle provided warmth, kindness, and loving care to Mildred for the many years since Bud's death. Mildred was born Mildred Claire Hansen in Loomis, California into a farming family. Throughout her childhood she helped in the pear orchards and worked long hours in the fruit packing shed. Her tall, slender frame and vibrant good health made her a perfect candidate for basketball, a sport she enjoyed in her high school years and remembered fondly long after. She met Bud as a shy young student at Placer Junior College (now Sierra College), stepping onto the school bus that Bud drove part-time while a student. Bud's teasing and flirting turned her head as her beauty had turned his. Their parents disapproved of the courtship and attempted to dampen their romance, sending Mildred to live with her sister in San Diego, where she worked as a secretary for the War Department during the height of the Second World War. Bud, thwarted by his father's claim of hardship, was kept from enlisting, and kept from Mildred, instead managing a sawmill in rustic Challenge, California. In the end, their parents efforts failed to overcome their love. Mil and Bud married June 24, 1944. Bud and Mil began their life together in a one-room cabin with outdoor plumbing in Challenge, where they started their family. An attempt to thaw the frozen pipes during a particularly bitter cold snap in the winter of 1949 resulted in a fire that engulfed the cabin. Mildred, Bud, and their two children, Kathy and Ken moved to Yuba City in 1950, just in time for the birth of their third child, Sylvia. 1952 brought hardship to the family. Bud fell ill with encephalitis, Sylvia was struck with polio, and their fourth child, Christopher, was stillborn. In 1955, the family narrowly escaped, with baby Ellen in tow, the flood that devastated Yuba City, leaving their home and all of their belongings in four feet of mud. By the late 1950s, Bud's lumber transportation business began to thrive. Mildred packed the kids' lunches every day and volunteered with their activities most afternoons. Three girls kept the sewing machine busy, but never too busy to keep an eye and an ear out for Bud's homecoming. Bud was such a fan of trucks of any kind, his engine was easy to hear as we looked out the window, ready to be the first to shout "Dad's home!" Mildred served as a Camp Fire Girl Leader and came along to Camp Fire Camp as a volunteer cook, one of the few times she ever left Bud's side. She volunteered as a Cub Scout Den Mother for Ken's troop and began her long service as a volunteer at Rideout Memorial Hospital. By the time she retired her Pink Lady jumper, she had volunteered 11,000 hours. Mildred remembered the years at home with a young family as the happiest of her life. Even though Bud's business and cattle-raising "hobby" canceled many a vacation, Mildred would laugh softly remembering Sunday drives, the occasional weekend in Fort Bragg, picnics during which we feasted on her delicious fried chicken, and fishing trips with the family. Bud was a huge fan of dessert. Even though Mildred's parents hadn't allowed sugar in the house, she rose to the challenge. Her peach pie with honey drizzled over the top and cheesecake were family favorites. Always an active member and supporter of St. Andrews Presbyterian church, Mildred became even more involved after Bud's death, helping dispense food to needy families and lending a hand wherever she was needed. Mildred's volunteerism continued to grow, as she overcame her natural shyness to assist with English Language Learners at Yuba City High and spend every other Saturday hosting guests of the Sutter County Museum. Her family is respecting her wishes by holding a family-only graveside service, where she will be laid to rest next to Bud. In recognition and respect for her generosity, in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice on her behalf. Send Condolences at

We will miss you but we know that you are at peace and with Dad. You were the last of five brothers and sisters in your family., You were our anchor and our best friend. We could talk to you at anytime and you would not judge. You would listen to us and you'd say "That it would be alright, just wait and see," and you would be right. That we will miss. We'll just have to talk someplace else. But I can hear your answer already., Peedee, Raymond, Cindy and I will be okay, just a hole in our heart now that you are gone.

Rosalie (Anderson Bailey) Gunn

Rosalie (Anderson Bailey) Gunn graduated Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010, to be in the presence of The King and join a magnificent party in her honor. Rosie danced at the Pearly Gates which spread open wide, reuniting her with parents, Maurice and Mary Gunn. Her favorite tune, Ramblin'' Rose, played in the distance where husband, Leo Prins Anderson, aka ''˜Bucket-head,'' and son, Maurice "Andy" Prins Anderson were awaiting her arrival. The music cranked up and sounds of "South Pacific" beckoned her to the dance floor. Laughter and joy were heard as best friends, Genevieve Goff, Dee Von Wehrloff, Lou Romero and Joe Mendoza, cut a rug with her - all having endless energy and caught up on old times. Beckoned to her seat at the piano, Rosie cranked out her favorite honky-tonk tunes, marches and hymns, also taking requests from the crowd. The feast laid out before them included her favorite seafood, grilled tri-tip and meats loaded with garlic, roasted leg of lamb and all the trimmings, not forgetting her sweet tooth - and as she would tell you, "all my teeth are sweet!" After greeting some of the most important loves of her life, from Judge to Winnie-Poo, she saw St. Francis of Assisi and asked him to present a special blessing on behalf of all the animals on Earth. Sending confirmation through sunshine, thunder, lightning and butterflies throughout the following hours, Rosalie let her two beloved daughters, Maureen Prins (Anderson) Rousseau and Kathleen Prins (Van Romer) Welles, and sons-in-law, David (Foo) Rousseau and Bill (Wildman) Welles, know she arrived in at the Glory of Glories. Her parting was quick and her new position in eternity was more than she could have ever imagined. Well-educated, Rosalie was always a productive member of society, having held professional jobs throughout her tenure on planet Earth. She served her country in the U.S., , Women''s Army Corp at the Pentagon during, . Irish to the core, and proud of it, Rosalie spent most of her 91 years as a gypsy at heart. She was never afraid to venture out to fulfill her dreams of travel and adventure and instilled that in her children. Rosalie dreamed of the beauty and splendor of Hawaii and went there many times after she retired, securing great jobs, which always included accommodations in the most beautiful beachside locales. Children who didn''t attend the party were daughters Maureen and Kathleen; son, Bill; grandchildren, (great-grands and great-great grand) as follow: Debi Prins McManus (Chelsy Prins, Callie Prins), Shawn, Chuck (Kolby, Kayla) and Justin Pennington. Grand-pets not attending were Wadd, Mr. Pookit and Tira Miss-U. Her loving family will join together at the Emerald Isle of the Pacific along the Napali coastline on Kauai, Hawaii, to celebrate here on earth - the blessings and priceless inheritances of compassion, character, common sense, love and adventure instilled in them by such a really good woman known first as mommy, then mother and above all, "One who loved animals - more than humankind." Not the flower kind of gal, Rosie would ask if anyone wants to do something in her memory, please make a donation to the animal shelter/foundation of your choice. We sure do love you mom!
