Ed Pope

Ed Pope Resident of San Jose Ed Pope, an award-winning journalist who lived his generous life on his own terms and believed in family, friends, justice and hard work, lost his second battle with cancer and died at his San Jose home on Oct. 3. He was 78. A tough-minded man, fond of trout fishing, crossword puzzles and family gatherings, Ed survived colon cancer 25 years ago, taking chemotherapy like other people take cough syrup and keeping up his newspaper reporting during treatments. He died of complications from bladder cancer. His 41-year career as a reporter and editor at the San Jose Mercury News, from 1960 until his retirement in 2001, spanned the growing pains of Santa Clara County and the birth of Silicon Valley. It has been said that journalism is the first draft of history. Ed helped document the story of the region's growth, strengths and weaknesses, and was never afraid to challenge those in high places, or to make a little history himself by exposing injustices in the nursing home industry. Sharing the Pulitzer Prize won by the entire Mercury news staff for its coverage of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, Ed earned numerous other awards that reflected his passion for justice. "He never shied from speaking truth to power," said his son, Todd Pope. "He deftly practiced his craft in ways that could, and often did, hold people in authority accountable." His nursing home industry investigations won him the California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform Advocacy in Media Award of 2002 - "In recognition of his courageous and inspiring journalism on behalf of California's nursing home residents." His work on the Mercury News series in 1986 called "No Place to Die" reported on the state's shoddy nursing homes and the deaths of 126 patients, winning Ed and fellow reporters Bill Romano and Fran Smith citations for best consumer journalism that year from the National Press Club in Washington. In one stretch of three years, Ed's reporting about various scandals and abuses sparked the resignations of executive directors of two major charity organizations and the Agnews Developmental Center. He covered everything from the Medfly scourge in the 1970s to the 1984 Olympics to California water politics, earning a second place award for a water feature story from the Associated Press. In a stint as city editor, he mentored many reporters. He had an amazing reporter's knack for winning the confidence of cops and government officials who became sources for his news stories that helped people, said his daughter, Tracy Pope. "He had an investigative nature. And he wanted to use his writing and researching talents to give people a voice who might not otherwise have had one. He had a strong sense of ethics, and believed others should too." Edward Nelson Shaw Pope was born July 18, 1932 in Hamden, Conn., and moved with his family to South El Monte in Southern California in 1945. A product of the public schools, he graduated from El Monte High and then from Orange Coast Junior College in Costa Mesa. He earned his bachelor's in journalism from San Jose State University, where he was editor of the Spartan Daily his senior year, in 1953-54. During college, he was drafted into the Navy, but obtained an education deferral. Upon graduation, he immediately fulfilled his duty by joining the Navy. He was stationed on Guam, where he served for two years as a journalist and staff administrator. He met coed Donna Shaw while they both worked as dishwashers in a dorm at SJSU, and he always said it was love at first sight. Their courtship included picnics in the local parks where they would study and talk for hours. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2008, the year Donna died after a long battle with lung cancer. For nearly 50 years they lived in the same San Jose house across from an elementary school, a home they took pride in remodeling off and on over three decades, eventually nearly doubling the living space. They bought a second home in Boulder Creek to enjoy in their retirement years amid the redwood trees. Per their wishes, they were both cremated and their ashes comingled for what will be one last outing together, a spreading of their remains somewhere in nature. Before Donna's late career as an arts education coordinator for the city of San Jose, the family lived on Ed's reporter salary for decades. Sacrificing and cutting corners, the Popes managed to put their children through three top universities - UCLA (Tracy); Stanford (Todd); and UC-Berkeley (Valerie). Today, Tracy is in her 21st year as a public school teacher in Santa Clara Unified, Todd is an entrepreneur and engineer with a talent for business, and Valerie thrives on working in the technical side of the theater profession. Ed collected books and was proud of his first edition copy of Hemingway's "For Whom The Bell Tolls." In its preface, Hemingway quotes from the famous passage by poet John Donne about the value in seeing that "no man is an island," that we are all connected, and that each person's death diminishes each of us, "because I am involved in mankind." How involved was Ed? He coached Little League baseball and the soccer teams of his children and grandchildren (daughter Valerie was named an All-American in soccer at Cal). In the days when the Mercury News provided free frozen Thanksgiving turkeys to employees, Ed started an annual tradition of gathering the unwanted turkeys and donating them to Second Harvest, Sacred Heart and the Emergency Housing Consortium - sometimes 150 turkeys a year. In retirement, he volunteered with friend and former reporting colleague Lou Calvert for Rebuilding Together, providing free home repairs to the elderly. He remained active in Democratic politics, supporting progressive causes and candidates. A sportsman and fitness buff, he had a 25-year passion for running and working out. Ed liked to hunt in his younger days and fished throughout his life, always using a very small hook to give the trout a fair chance, he said. He made camping a family trait, especially passing down the tradition of going to San Jose Family Camp near Yosemite for more than 30 summers. His love of local pro and college teams was legendary. He was a knowledgeable fan of the San Jose Sharks and the San Francisco Giants and was following the Giants' thrilling run for glory this year into the final month of his life. He died on the day the Giants beat the San Diego Padres 3-0 in the last game of the season to win the National League West title. Ed is survived by his children Tracy Pope and her husband, Mike Myslinski, of San Jose; son Todd Pope and his wife, Terri Shreve Pope, of Napa; daughter Valerie Pope and her partner, Jessica Fisher, of El Cerrito; and four grandchildren: Madeleine Myslinski, Jamie Pope and Michael Katrenak, and Carmina Pulliam. He is also survived by a step-sister, Annette Freligh of Palmdale; niece Finesse Lapins of Colorado Springs, Colo; nephews Kim and Drake Jansson of Southern California; and by numerous sisters- and brothers-in-law and their families. Ed believed in the power of labor unions and their role in raising the standard of living for working people. He was active in the Newspaper Guild, so it is fitting that a celebration of his life will be held at the South Bay AFL-CIO Labor Council Labor Temple complex. The celebration starts at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, and will be held in the IBEW union's brick hall at the back of the Labor Temple, 2125 Canoas Garden Ave., San Jose, 95125. The hall is called The Terrace at Willow Glen. The family prefers donations be made in Ed Pope's memory to: , S

ARNOLD, Fred A. Mar. 10, 1921 - Oct. 13, 2010 Fred Arnold passed away peacefully on Wednesday afternoon, following an extended illness. Fred was born and lived a short while with his mother, Nellie, and dad, Berlin (Burly) Arnold, in Baxter, Tennessee. Following the untimely death of his young father, Nellie returned with her boys to her hometown of Wartrace, Tennessee, where she later married Reuben Arnold. Upon graduation from high school, Fred hitch-hiked to California. Over time, his other brothers followed him to California. World War II saw Fred and three other brothers in the Army Air Corps. Fred became a side gunner on B-29's and was scheduled to go to the Far East when a serious automobile accident took place in Texas. By the time Fred recovered from that accident the war was over. Fred often said that the accident might have saved his life because most of his outfit was shot down over Japan. After the war, Fred and his oldest brother, Melbourne, constructed a home for themselves on Wonderland Avenue, in Hollywood. Prior to that, in 1948, Fred met his wife-to-be at the Hollywood Palladium. On March 18, 1950, Fred married Madeleine Helen Turner. Working as a team all through 55 years of marriage, Fred and Madeleine developed a very successful construction business, almost all of which was in the field of public works. The business was dissolved in 1986, and they both were able, finally, to do some serious traveling. Fred and Madeleine were very active fund raisers for the Hollywood YMCA where they were also very actively engaged in their own physical fitness. They both used that fitness to become track and field officials. Their specialty eventually became the pole vault event. Fred was the head pole vault official for the 1984 Olympics which were held in Los Angeles. They both were involved in several Olympic Trials. As something of a memorial to his wife, Fred funded the construction of an indoor track for Fresno State University. Finally, Fred loved golf, and he was actually pretty good at the game. Fred's passing was preceded by the passing of two brothers, Bob and Melbourne, and his wife, Madeleine. He is survived by two brothers, Maurice and Cecil, who will miss him.

Harry Bertram Bowman, Jr. Jan. 5, 1925 - Oct. 16, 2010 There it sits, a Rube Goldberg contraption worthy of the Smithsonian, all gears, pulleys, nuts, bolts, and painted Golden Gate Bridge orange. It was Harry's invention, a rotisserie that launched a hundred wonderful parties in his San Francisco garden. Guests were greeted by the delicious aromas of chickens and ribs, slowly turning over a big outdoor barbecue. And there was Harry, holding court in his chef's apron, basting brush dripping with secret sauce, inviting us to the feast. Harry loved a good time. He was a bachelor until he turned forty when he married Claire Stadler, the love of the rest of his life. He was born in Oak Park, Illinois, moving with his family to the Bay Area when he was six. He graduated from San Mateo High School and joined the Navy, serving in the South Pacific until the end of, . He worked in the industrial supply business but loved the weekends when he could hop in his MG convertible and head to Pebble Beach and Del Mar for road rallies and amateur car races. He followed the motor racing scene as it developed and was an avid outdoors man. He and Claire loved to travel but found that faraway places could not compare to their late spring and early fall trips to Lake Tahoe, when the tourists were gone and stillness prevailed. Harry is survived by his wife, his sister Clarissa Dyer, and a multitude of loving nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents and older sister Adalene Ross Riley. The family wants particularly to thank the dear neighbors and friends who checked in with Harry constantly, the caregivers whose humor and kindness will never be forgotten and the Pathways Hospice team that made Harry's last days comfortable, enabling him to pass away peacefully at home.

Ilda passed away on October 14th after a long, courageous battle with Cancer. She was at home surrounded by family. Ilda Barcelos Lima was born in the Azores island of Terceira, Portugal in 1933. She came to America at the age of 14 and settled in Los Banos. She was a wife and homemaker raising four children before embarking on a culinary career. As with everything she did, her cooking skills were amazing and she cooked at Carlos Restaurant for over 20 years. In 1977 Ilda branched out and opened Ilda's Dining in Dos Palos. She gave it a good run and eventually returned to Carlos until she retired. In 1975 Ilda married the love of her life Bill. Together they shared many wonderful years full of love and laughter. They were married for 35 years until Bill's passing only seven months ago that left Ilda absolutely heart broken. Ilda had a keen sense of style. She loved fashion and jewelry and was an accomplished seamstress. Often she would design and redesign clothing with her signature touch. She was self-taught in everything she pursued and in her later years she quilted and made beautiful Santa's and Angels in which many of us will enjoy for years to come. Ilda exuded class and elegance. She was so beautiful both inside and out. She had a wonderful sense of humor but was also no nonesense. If she pointed that crooked finger at you, you know she meant business. She had so many talents, but her love of family is what defined her. Her family being content is what mattered most. She made every occasion special. Always filled with personal touches, lots of laughter and of course a wonderful meal. Sharing a good meal was at her core and as many of you know, you never left her house hungry. Ilda touched the lives of many and words cannot begin to express how deeply she will be missed. In addition to her beloved Bill, Ilda is preceded in death by her parents, Antonio and Margarida Lima, her brother Antonio Lima and her sister Palmira Lopes. She is survived by her daughters Adele and husband Dennis Buie of Los Banos, Dilia and husband Richard Schulz of Santa Cruz; sons Daryl and wife Cindy Soares of Bear River, Utah and John Soares of Los Banos. Her sister Mary Lopes and brother Jose Lima of Terceira, Azores. 10 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. A Visitation will be held October 25th at 5pm. Rosary will follow at 7pm, Whitehurst Funeral Chapel. Mass will be October 26th at 10am. St. Joseph's Catholic Church. Burial will follow at San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the greatest way to honor Ilda's memory is to enjoy a good meal with loved ones.

Joe Steinberg

Steinberg, Joe March 30, 1921 - October 19, 2010 Joe Steinberg never nibbled at life; he devoured it! His enthusiasm for people, causes, and life-enhancing activities was positively contagious. All who were privileged to know him could not help but be drawn to him by the sheer force of his personality. There was Joe the real estate developer, the film maker, the builder of low-income housing; Joe the raconteur, the tap dancer, the actor, the musician, the clown; Joe the soccer coach, the gardener, the magician, the world traveler, the political activist. Joe served his country during WWII as First Lieutenant in the US Army Infantry. He was awarded the Purple Heart for efforts during the Battle of the Bulge. In the 40's Joe was involved in the establishment of the Independent Progressive Party. Throughout his life, he joyously provided financial assistance that enabled many family and friends to start or sustain a business. He helped black-listed writers in the 50's and was a strong advocate of affirmative action. In his later years he became involved with Humanistic Judaism, helping to prepare many youngsters for their bar or bat mitzvah. Joe produced three full-length feature films as well as educational films dealing with topics such as incest, date rape, and teen suicide. No wonder his time with us has finally ended; he must have been exhausted! Joe's many family members and friends cherished his intelligence, his wit, his unique spirit, and his eternal optimism. He was devoted to Gladys, his wife of 66 years. Both lifetime advocates for education, together they owned and ran the Creative Center for Children preschool in West LA.

RASO, KITTY Born December 6th, 1918, in New York, New York, Kitty Raso went to join The Lord peacefully in her sleep Monday evening October 18th, 2010. Kitty, the founding Matriarch of Chula Vista's landmark, La Bella Pizza Garden, endured many trials in her 93 years. With the loss of her first husband, Phillip to cancer in 1943, Kitty was left a 25 year old widow with four young daughters. It was drive and determination that got this single mom through the hard times. In order to bring her family relief from New York City's summer heat, Kitty would take a cooking job on a friend's upstate farm. It was on that farm in the summer of 1948 where Kitty met Tony Raso, a handsome bachelor who owned a small dairy farm close by. Tony and Kitty were a product of a simpler time. It was at their first encounter, where Kitty prepared delicious Lasagna that she simple stated, "You know I'm Italian, You're Italian, I have the children, you have the farm, we should get married." Tony immediately agreed. Their loving devotion to one another lasted 55 years. They worked the farm together from 1948 through 1954 when in 1954, finding times on the farm getting tougher, Kitty and Tony decided to pull stakes and brought the family, Rosary, Ginger, Phyllis and their new son Joey to Chula Vista, California. Opening La Bella Pizza Garden, a small Mom and Pop Italian diner on 3rd Ave. downtown, the Rasos worked hard and established themselves as beloved Chula Vista residents. That first year, Papa Tony ran the kitchen, while mom served the customers with little Joey running around with a broom. In 1959, their second son, Tony, was born. That year also brought the first of many renovations to where, today, La Bella Pizza Garden, coupled with the adjacent La Bella Cafe & Games has grown to a 25,000 square foot South Bay Landmark with 80 employees. Kitty has always given back to the community with her involvement in numerous charities and organizations. Kitty was president of the International Food Service Executive Organization, on the board of the Salvation Army, instrumental in raising funds for the American Cancer Society, Chairman of the UN Day Committee and a founding member of the Saint Rose Branch of the Italian Catholic Federation. She was preceded in death by her husband Phillip, her husband Tony, and her daughters Josephine, Ginger, and Phyllis. Kitty is survived by three children, Rosary, Joseph, and Tony Jr., eight grandchildren, one great-grandchild and one great-great-grandchild. Viewing will be Friday, October 22nd, 2010, 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Community Mortuary, 855 Broadway, Chula Vista. Services will be Saturday, October 23rd, 11:00 a.m. at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, 293 "H" St., Chula Vista, followed by interment at Holy Cross Cemetery, 4470 Hilltop Dr., San Diego.

Randall Lee Elliott

Dec. 28, 1955- Oct. 14, 2010 Randall L. Elliott passed away peacefully on Oct. 14, 2010 with his loving wife at his side after suffering for 20 months with esophageal cancer., Born Dec. 28, 1955 as "Baby Boy Metcalf" in Portland, Ore., Randy was immediately adopted into the loving arms of his parents, Vernon and Marjorie Elliott. He was raised in Albany, Ore., and enlisted in the Navy during his senior year in high school. Randy graduated from West Albany High School in 1974 and married his first wife, Candice Elliott, while in boot camp. Randy served 20 years in the Navy as a submariner and working in classified projects., He was stationed at Point Mugu in 1983 and retired as a Command Master Chief on July 31, 1994. His strong sense of patriotism and his pride of country drove him during his military career and throughout the rest of his life. After retiring from the Navy, Randy joined the "civilian" side of the projects that he was working on and enjoyed so much., In 1997 Randy found a second rewarding career with Santa Barbara Applied Research that afforded him an opportunity to work with wonderful people who mentored and allowed him to reach new levels of self satisfaction. He also graduated from West Coast University in 1997 with his Bachelor of Science in industrial technology. While working for SBAR, Randy traveled to Guam extensively and it was there that he developed his love for scuba diving. Every chance he had he spent diving in the warm waters and photographing colorful fish and ship wrecks., After retiring from the Navy, Randy established a Neighborhood Council and Watch program for the Carriage Square neighborhood that encompassed over 1000 residents, later establishing the Marina West Council and Watch. In 1994, while working with his adjoining neighborhoods to help keep the surrounding areas safe, he met and fell in love with his second wife, Denise Paul-Elliott, the chair of the Orchard Park Neighborhood Watch and Council. They were married in 2005., Randy's community activism did not stop with his participation in the Neighborhood Watch and Council programs; he was appointed to the Oxnard Planning Commission in 2006 and was serving as the current chairman of the Planning Commission at the time of his passing. Randy had the unique opportunity to be a part of two loving families; the parents and sister he grew up with and the half siblings he located in 1994., In October 2006 he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and after having his esophagus removed in January 2007, Randy was declared Cancer Free! After his experience at UCLA Randy began to donate time to help UCLA's Center for Esophageal Disorders to establish some program services for others in his situation which included fundraising, making a new patient video, and assisting in a "buddy" system for new patients and their families. In January 2008 Randy's cancer returned. For the last 20 months he and his wife traveled extensively, talked constantly, and worked to create opportunities for his children and grandchildren to develop loving and lasting memories of him., He was often quoted as saying, "Don't say tomorrow, as I won't have a tomorrow." So he lived his life for Today! Randy's greatest joy in life was being with and playing with his grandchildren. His eyes sparkled and he smiled brightly at the thought of being with them. He loved being known as Pa and Poppa., Randy is preceded in death by his father, Vernon Lee Elliott; and his birth mother, Glenna Dee Miller. He is survived by his wife, Denise Paul-Elliott; his daughter, Kristin Brown and son-in-law Erik of Quakertown, Pa.; son, Michael L. Elliott and companion Lizz Kordek of Oxnard; his mother, Marjorie Elliott of Albany, Ore.; sister, Rebecca Luckman and brother-in-law Larry of Albany, Ore.; half-sister, Patricia Hausmann and brother-in-law Jim of Reedsport, Ore; and half-sister, Kelly Haines and brother-in-law Jeff of Battleground, Wash. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Daisy Miller, Ventura; Aiden L. Elliott, Oxnard; Michael L. Elliott, Jr., Oxnard; stepgranddaughter, Autumn Johansen, Oxnard; and the newest little member of the family to be, "Baby Brown." "Lil Brownie," who will never have a chance to know Poppa, will always know of "Poppa's" love. He is also survived by his extended family of nephews and nieces and his former wife, Candice Elliott., We are thankful for his peaceful passing and he will be greatly missed. A celebration of his life will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 21 at Conrad-Carroll, located at 401 W. Channel Islands Boulevard in Oxnard, followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, Randy requested a donation be made to the UCLA Center for Esophageal Disorders/Dr. Mary Maish, C/O UC Regents (make checks payable to), 10833 Le Conte Ave., CHS 64-128, Los Angeles, CA 90095.

Virginia B. "Ginger" Edwards

Virginia (Ginger) B. Edwards August 17, 1925 - October 17, 2010 Virginia (Ginger) B. Edwards was born to Lillian Maxine Tillery Feldhut and Walter Frederick Feldhut in their home in Iuka, Kansas on August 17, 1925. She passed peacefully on Sunday, October 17, with her daughter by her side. In Ginger's early years, her family moved to Central California and finally settled in Bakersfield. She married James Allen Edwards from Taft, CA in October 1942. Had both of them still been with us, they would have celebrated their 68th anniversary on the 28th. In February 1943, Jim entered the military. On his 23rd bombing mission over Austria on July 26, 1944, his plane was shot down. In September 1944, Ginger was notified by the War Department that Jim was being held as a Prisoner of War in Kurpension Marienbheim Hospital in Graz Germany. In January 1945, Ginger gave birth to their daughter, Marsha Lyn Edwards. In April 1945, the family was reunited. A son, James Allen Edwards, Jr. was born on his mother's birthday on August 17, 1951. Ginger was a devoted, hardworking wife and mother. She was teased by family and friends that their home was always so clean, you could eat off the floor. And that was the truth. Their son, Jimmer, died from cancer, at the age of 22 years. His memory became an integral part of the family's life. An honest and frank woman, Ginger had a devoted circle of friends, some whom she had known since they were teenagers. In her last few years, the friends would talk frequently about their teenage antics and caring for their husbands and children. At the age of 50, she proudly learned to drive a car. Following that milestone in her life, she decided to learn oil painting and quickly became an amazing artist. In 1979, Marsha returned to Bakersfield with her husband, David and their children, Aaron Edwards Brandt and Summer Lyn Brandt. Over the next several years, Jim and Ginger actively enjoyed their grandchildren. This year, Ginger was thrilled and blessed with two great grandchildren. On April 25th, Summer and Mike Stallmann gave birth to their son, Parker James Stallmann. Five weeks later, Ginger's grandson, Aaron Edwards Brandt and his wife, Emily Brandt gave birth to their son, Dylan Paul Brandt. Ginger turned 85 in August and was celebrated by her daughter, son-in-law, grandchildren and their spouses and most of all her great grand babies. Ginger is survived by her sister, Bonnie Heady and her children, Trudie, Susan and Katy. She leaves behind several nieces, nephews, and her favorite love, her dog, Abby. Viewing is today Thursday, Oct. 21, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Hillcrest Mortuary, with Graveside services on Friday, Oct. 22, at 2:00 p.m., at Hillcrest.
