In 1945, she graduated with a degree in nursing from St. Paul School of Nursing and moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue her career. She met George Beck while attending pre-med classes at U.S.C., they were married on September 3, 1949, and they loved and supported each other over the next 61 years. George and Elma welcomed a son, Charlie in 1953 and a daughter, Megan in 1955. Elma decided her young family required a career change and in 1966 she received her bachelor's degree and teaching credential from Long Beach State University and she taught 5th grade for nineteen years at Ramona Elementary School in Bellflower, California. Years later, as adults, many of her former 5th graders contacted her to thank her for inspiring them when they were young. After their retirements, George and Elma traveled to destinations around the world enjoying, among other adventures, bike riding in China, Holland and England, hiking the Chilkoot Trail in Alaska, cruising in the Galapagos and painting (Elma) and golfing (George) in Ireland. Elma was a shining example of how to live life to the fullest. She took up downhill skiing at the age of 50 and could negotiate her way down all the runs at Mammoth Mountain. She began running at the age of 53 and went on to complete 10 Catalina Marathons. When she turned 70, Elma read an article on the importance of maintaining muscle as one ages and signed up the next day at a gym and religiously worked out with weights 4 times a week. Elma began to enter powerlifting competitions and, despite her slender frame, became a national champion in her age group. Elma still holds the American records in her weight class for bench press, squat and deadlift for ages 70-74. Elma was also an accomplished artist, whose paintings were on display in several South Bay area galleries and restaurants, most prominently at the Palos Verdes Art Center. She enjoyed painting landscapes and scenes of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and San Pedro Harbor but what Elma loved the most was painting her grandchildren in action. Elma was an extraordinary grandma to Brandi Scimone, Martin and Megan Beck (Anthony) and Carly, Quinn and Tess McElroy. Whether it was helping them with their homework, organizing an art craft, taking them for a walk to the tide pools, playing Monopoly, or reading them a bedtime story and singing a lullaby, Grandma was always there for her grandkids, with her special mix of

Dec. 30, 1933 ~ Oct. 14, 2010 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.

Marianne Franklin

Marianne Franklin, 94, of Cayucos, passed away after a short illness Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2010. She was a devoted mother, cherished grandmother and loved by all who were fortunate to have known her. Marianne was born in Chicago, Ill., in July 1916, the third of six siblings, which included Robert Heicken, aka "Uncle Bob," her adopted brother and dear friend. In her late twenties, she traveled west with her younger sister. Along the way, she met her future husband, Howard, who was stationed in Denver in the U.S. Air Force during World War II. Soon after, they settled in Manteca, Calif., where they raised their three sons. At age 42, and after her youngest son started kindergarten, she began her 26-year teaching career. She once stated she instructed third and fourth graders because ''that''s where the action is.'' To this day, former students recall her as one of their most favorite and influential teachers. She retired in 1984 and moved to the Central Coast, where the family owned a home in Cayucos. During her lifetime, she enjoyed being a den mother for Cub Scouts, camping, spending summers at the beach, thrift store shopping and reading classic stories to her grandchildren. Her home was a haven for the forlorn and also included pets of all kinds. Once, during her retirement, she met two young Frenchmen at the Grand Ole Opera House in Nashville. She learned they were stranded due to a broken-down car and gave them a ride to their next city. They became lifelong friends and in later years, she became the American grandmother to their children. Stories like this are a true testament to how she lived life - with good intentions, a big heart and an open door. Marianne is survived by her two sons Larry Franklin (Linda) and Keith Franklin (Marlo), both of Morro Bay; granddaughters Amy Perry, Kate Franklin, Sydney Franklin and Elle Franklin; three great-grandchildren Justin Fahey, Dylan Stewart and Taylor Stewart; nieces Eloise Bussio, Natica Angilly and Helen Gualtieri; and nephew, Frank Gualtieri; and other extended family in Chicago. She was preceded in death by her husband, Howard; Franklin; and son, Clifford Franklin. A celebration of Marianne''s extraordinary life will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2010, at the family beach house in Cayucos. For details, contact 235-4549 or

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."

Virginia Ike

Virginia "Ginger" Lee (Frazier) Ike, The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace., Virginia "Ginger" Lee (Frazier) Ike died unexpectedly Friday, October 15, 2010 surrounded by family. Ginger Ike was born September 5, 1939 in Guadalupe, CA to Osby and Vivian Frazier. Ginger was raised with her older brother Scott, and was surrounded by many aunts, uncles and cousins who instilled in her the importance of family. In 1961 Ginger wed Roger Ike and started her married life in Central California as Roger finished school at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo while she worked as a hair dresser and owner at Ginger's House of Style. In 1970, Ginger and Roger, along with their three children moved and settled in Vancouver, WA. Here, Ginger focused her life on her family and continued as a homemaker in every sense of the word until all of her children were grown and married. At that point in her life she fulfilled a life-long dream and passion for music by taking piano lessons. She also volunteered as a CASA worker, feeling the need to help children less fortunate than her own. Later she chose to begin a twilight career as a Staff Assistant in a special education classroom at Salmon Creek Elementary, fulfilling her desire once again to help children. In 2006, she retired after 13 years of service helping those who needed her most., In the years following her retirement, Ginger focused her attention on pursuing the enjoyment of her family and friends. It was not uncommon on the weekends to find her and Roger on the sidelines at several events cheering for their 7 grandchildren as they each pursued their interests in various sports and activities. One of her greatest joys was having her family all gathered around the table for a meal. Whether it was her famous Chile Verde, tacos, anything with mashed potatoes and gravy, or an impromptu Santa Maria style summer BBQ, Ginger enjoyed having she and Roger at either end of the table with family and friends in between. After inheriting art supplies from her beloved brother Scott, she discovered a hidden gift as an artist and created many inspiring portraits of people and landscapes. Ginger enjoyed retirement to its fullest spending her time reading, lunching, attending art classes and her ritual Friday night scrabble events with friends. But the truest happiness of her life was the strength and security she found with Roger and the life they enjoyed together for nearly fifty years. Ginger was a kind, caring soul who touched the lives of everyone she came in contact with., Ginger is survived by her beloved husband Roger; children Gary and Peggy Ike, Lauren and Branden Edmiston and Steven and Sherri Ike; grandchildren Kaitlyn, Jacob, Talon, Haley, Joseph, Olivia and Carson; and mother-in-law Juanita Ike all from the Vancouver area. Her sister-in-law Sandy Frazier and many loving cousins continue to reside in California., A memorial service will be held to celebrate the life of Ginger Ike at 3:00 P.M. on Saturday, October 23, 2010, at Grace Foursquare Church 717 SE Everett Road, Camas, WA.
