After graduating from high school, she moved to southern California with her family, where she worked in various administrative and clerical positions. Marrying in 1944, she and her husband, Frank, settled in Oxnard where they lovingly raised their two children. As their children reached high school age, Anne returned to work, starting part-time at the CBC Federal Credit Union in Port Hueneme where she eventually advanced to office manager before joining her husband in retirement and moving to Camarillo. Anne remained quite active in retirement., With an inquisitive mind and adventurous spirit, she accompanied her husband on many travels to the far corners of the world and to elder hostels throughout the United States. Always creative, she took up painting in her 60s and became an accomplished and prodigious artist. Her landscape paintings adorn many a wall in the homes of family and friends., Anne also put her creative talents to work doing volunteer arts and crafts work for St. Johns Pleasant Valley Hospital in Camarillo where, among other things, she handcrafted hundreds of Hug me where it hurts pillows given to hospital surgery patients., Always devoted to her large extended family, Anne was preceded in death by her parents, William and Effie Hatchman; sisters, Harriet Hatchman, Marcella Hatchman and Lee Faulmann; brothers, William Hatchman and Robert Hatchman; and her loving and devoted husband of 64 years, Frank Cingrani.

She had an uncanny ability to see through most any issue that confronted her and come up with the most practical and accepted solution. Often the last to speak, Anne was usually the one everyone listened to. She was definitely someone you wanted on your side of an argument. Blessed with a wonderful sense of humor she never missed a chance to lovingly tease or play a practical joke on friends and family alike. Even as the years began to rob her of her memory, Anne never lost her wry wit and the ability to make those around her laugh. She enriched us all by her presence and clearly gave more to life than she ever took from it. A better legacy is hard to imagine., In honor of Annes wishes, there will be no funeral services. Her family asks simply that she be celebrated by the remembrances of those whose lives she touched.

Carol Hensley

Carol Ann Hensley A Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Friend, Colleague and Hero... With grace and dignity mom lived her life with passion and love for her family and many friends. Her personality was contagious. How do you even begin to sum up the life of an amazing woman who touched so many people! Carol passed away in the comfort of her home with family by her side on Nov. 3, 2010. Just 52 years and two days after marrying the love of her life Billy Floyde in Reno, Nevada. Carol was born in San Francisco, California on Dec. 29, 1936. She was the oldest daughter of five sisters and two half brothers of immigrant parents, Lilie and Jens Hov (Jacobsen). She was very proud of her Scandinavian heritage. Carol was active in her community; a member of Job's Daughters while attending Richmond High School ultimately serving as valedictorian for her class of 1955.

Our hero, Carol fought a brave and vigilant battle against lung cancer. She is remembered by her passion for life and love for her family and many friends.

While she had many superior technical skills her proficiency in shorthand, a "lost art", was admired at a speed of 175 wpm.

Christina Brem Haley

Christina Haley was welcomed into heaven and the arms of Jesus Nov. 2, 2010, following her lengthy and courageous battle with breast cancer., Those she left behind found the world a little emptier with the loss of her joy, her light, her life. All who knew Chris and spent any time at all with her came away feeling encouraged and somehow better for having spent time in her presence., Christina was born to Glenn and Muriel Brem in Gilroy, Calif., on July 31, 1946. She completed her formal education with two Master's degrees from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, where she enjoyed college life to the fullest, and eventually met her husband, Roger Haley of Ventura. Chris and Roger were married in 1975 and began their family life on the Haley Ranch, the family ranch outside of Ojai, where Roger worked closely in business with his mother, Katherine Haley., The joys of Chris' life were their sons, Bret, Bradley and Bryan. While the Haley boys were young, Chris spent her days and nights teaching and raising her boys to be the ranchers and gentlemen they are today. When they reached school age and Chris was no longer needed as much at home, she found herself involved in their schools, classrooms, and, eventually, her chosen profession of teaching other children, and she was often found substituting in schools around the Ojai area., Her later teaching years were spent working with children who were housebound for health and other reasons. Christina loved working closely with "her families" and the impact she had on countless lives is recounted often by those she loved and was privileged to teach., Aside from her many gifts of entertaining, decorating, gardening and flower arranging, a key focus of Christina's was her deep interest in the history of Ventura County, mostly as it pertained to Rancho Casitas and the Haley/Hoffman/Hobson family. Their home is filled with scrapbooks, albums and other memorabilia of early Rancho days., She served on the Museum Board and was an active participant in local and County historical events. In the later years of her life, Chris' and Roger's grandsons, Wyatt, Weston, Brayden and Jack Haley brought even more joy and much laughter into their lives and the last years of their life together., The grandsons' antics and anecdotes were a constant topic of conversation to anyone she talked with! Even though she left this earth far too early, and when the boys were very small, her presence and impact on their lives will be felt by them forever., In addition to Roger, their sons Bret Douglas (Leigh Davy Haley), Bradley William (Erin Mescher Haley) and Bryan Christopher (Lindsay Harris Haley), and their grandsons, Christina is survived by her parents, Glenn and Muriel Brem of Gilroy; her siblings, Vicki Ciraulo (Stan) of Morgan Hill, Rich Brem (Trish) of Hollister, Ed Brem (Jane) of Salinas and Peggy Fischer (Jeff) of San Jose; in-laws, Andrea Haley Pfister (Hank), Bob Haley (Martha) and Virginia Haley Dean; as well as numerous nephews, nieces, great-nephews and great-nieces, a large extended family and a host of close, lifelong friends., What people will remember most about Christina Haley was what an incredible friend she was and her commitment to serving, encouraging and challenging those she loved. Her life exemplified one of the most well-known chapters in the Bible "Love is patient, kindnot self-seeking. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.", The family has requested, for those who feel a desire to do so, in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Christina B. Haley Memorial Shepherd's Fund, Ojai Valley Community Church, 907 El Centro Street, Ojai, CA 93023. Interment was private. A Celebration of Chris' life will be held at Ojai Valley Community Church at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6. Arrangements are under the direction of the Ted Mayr Funeral Home, 3150 Loma Vista Road, Ventura. Condolences may be sent to www.TedMayrFuneralHome.Com.



Christopher J. Holmes

It is with a very heavy heart that we bid adieu to our darling Mr. Holmes. Christopher Joseph Holmes left us on October 31, 2010. He was 85. He was the beloved only child of Alice and Patrick Shea, born August 16, 1925 in New York City, where he lived until 1991, when he moved to Santa Rosa to start his retirement. He graduated from Brooklyn's famed Boys High School, having been recognized as gifted and given a full scholarship. He served his country well in the Army Air Corps in 1945-46. After the war Christopher got a job as a gofer at the Ziegfield Follies. He had worked there for a year or two when he was offered a job on the 20th Century Limited, the deluxe express train that carried the rich and famous between New York and Chicago. His job title was "secretary" but today he would be known as a concierge. On that train he learned card tricks from Milton Berle, and shared a cocktail with then-actor and future President Ronald Reagan, who did not want to drink alone. After his stint on the 20th Century, he worked in Manhattan in real estate and retail. For the last 25 years before his retirement, he was the director of personnel for Lord & Taylor's flagship department store on Fifth Avenue. In 1964 he met the person who would be his companion and closest friend for the next 46 years, Herbert E. "Rock" Rockefeller. The Broadway stage never had a bigger fan than Christopher Holmes, who went to his first show at 10 years old and never stopped. He was a natural-born critic and had an uncanny ability to know which show was going to "make it or break it"; he was always right. Christopher loved people, animals, show biz, fashion, movies and "the good life." In 1960 he went to live with friends in a villa on the Italian isle of Capri, where he met the comic actress Bea Lillie and made many friends he would keep for years. Once Christopher retired and moved to Santa Rosa, needless to say he had a whole different life. But in spite of himself he grew to love it. He relished the beautiful garden that Herb would create at their home and would sit for hours, "taking in the sun," reading his newspapers and the New Yorker magazine. In that same garden, he literally charmed the birds from the trees, sitting patiently for hours with a peanut in his hand or on his knee until the wild blue jays came. And come they did: Generations of trusting jays graced their garden, even "knocking" at the back door in search of a treat. A few years ago a new being came into Christopher and Rock's life. Her name is Chimay and she is a beauty: sleek, with a lovely complexion, and eyes that looked into Chris' soul. No Weimaraner has ever been so loved. Because of this ravishing creature a whole new group of people came into Chris' life. He and Chimay would make their neighborhood rounds and gather fans by the score. He dearly loved that animal and she gave him such comfort this last year. Special thanks are due to the nurses and staff at Memorial Hospital, and to Christopher's wonderful physicians - Dr. Marek Bozdech, Dr. Gregg Hopkins, Dr. John Hollander and Dr. Larry Marianella - for their kindness and care this past year. For those of us who loved this man, our hearts are broken. We will not see his likes again, but our lives are so enriched for having known him. In addition to Herb and Chimay, he leaves behind: the whole Micheli clan; his dear neighbors Lee and Bill Sawyer; Michele McFarland and Diane Holt (aka "The Girls"); and many other friends in the Talbot Avenue neighborhood. Donations in his memory can be made to the or the charity of your choice. A Celebration of Life will be held in his honor in Santa Rosa on the afternoon of November 20. For details, please call 523-4634 or e-mail

For a time he was a social worker and earned a Doctorate of Social work from the University of Southern California, in 1967.David was an ordained minister of the Healing Light Center Church, Glendale CA.

When he was the father of young children he created holiday surprises, such as magical landscapes of gumdrop figures and fabulous stockings filled with memorable treats. Throughout his life, David traveled around the world with his family and was especially interested in visits to historical, sacred places. David was in many ways ahead of his time; he listened to his own heart in matters of social conscience. He was a conscientious objector in World War II. In a recent interview, David revealed the basic building blocks for a successful life and acknowledged that his greatest teachers from an early age were his mother and Dr. Emma Smiley of the Victoria B.C. Truth Center. "Don't fight. Be kind to everyone, especially people with different values. Be kind to animals. Don't accentuate differences." A life-long learner, as well as teacher, David participated in the Santa Rosa Center for Positive Living, studied and practiced Buddhist meditation and was an enthusiastic member in the Yulupa Cohousing Community. David is survived by his partner Mary Mueller, his daughters Nomi Franklin and Kathryn Shoemaker, his grandsons Jordan Levy, Jett Levy and Andrew Shoemaker and a granddaughter Kristin Schmidt and great grandson William Schmidt.

Jean Staniford Sciocchetti

On Monday, Oct. 11, 2010, our beloved mother joined our Heavenly Father and her lifelong love, Vernon "Ski" Freddric Sciocchetti - a wish she so desired from the day he left us, Oct. 19, 1999. Jean was a devoted, loving mother and gave selflessly to raise three rambunctious slow maturing men. She displayed a deep and unconditional love to our father, an example we so appreciate and cherish. Raised in Carmel, Calif., by Ethel and "Doc" Staniford, she met Ski and the adventure began. They sojourned in Hawaii for a season, relocated to San Luis Obispo to kick us out of the nest and eventually retired back in Carmel Valley. The Village and Valley was heaven on earth for Jeannie and Ski. Jeannie was a hoot to be around when she entertained, fished, or traveled, the things she most loved to do. She was fortunate to have had a spectacular life. Jeannie leaves behind her three sons Lee, Gary, and Mike; eight grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren. A celebration of her life will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13, 2010, at the Carmel Valley Community Youth Center, 25 Ford Road in Carmel Valley.

Joseph Sciabica

Joseph Sciabica put every ounce of effort into his life as an olive oil producer and face of the family-owned company at the Modesto Certified Farmers Market., Mr. Sciabica died of natural causes Friday afternoon, Oct. 29, at the age of 95. His family had not finalized funeral arrangements Saturday. His love for the family olive oil company, Nick Sciabica & Sons, was infectious., Mr. Sciabica's sons, Nick and Daniel, and grandson Jonathan, carry out the company's daily operations., Although he had handed over the company's reins, Mr. Sciabica remained a fixture at the farmers market, selling and promoting his family's olive oil., "My father's philosophy was: Go after all the business, don't turn anyone away," said Daniel Sciabica. "He didn't do it for the money., His mission was to give people the best olive oil money can buy.", The company has been in family hands for four generations. Mr. Sciabica saw the business as more of a tradition to be passed down through the years., "He taught us everything we know," his son said. "He was never afraid to let us get our feet wet in the business.", Mr. Sciabica was born Sept. 3, 1915, in Waterbury, Conn. His family followed relatives to San Francisco, where his father, Nicola Sciabica, launched his entrepreneurial efforts., During a 1924 trip to buy watermelons in Salida and resell them in the Bay Area, his father fell in love with the Central Valley's summer weather., The warm weather was reminiscent of Italy's climate, so the family moved to Salida to grow olive trees., In 1926, Nicola Sciabica founded the family company, which originally was just an olive farming operation. It wasn't until 1936 that the company started making olive oil., They started the company during the Great Depression and experienced difficulties. Others urged Mr. Sciabica to leave olive oil behind., "They never gave up," Daniel Sciabica said. "My father was tenacious.", For decades, the company's product was known as Marsala Olive Oil. It was named for the town in Sicily where Nicola Sciabica was born., It wasn't until the late '80s that the company began to offer a variety of olive oils under the Sciabica label., The company has grown as olive oil has become accepted in the American diet as a healthy option., Daniel Sciabica said his father was elated to see his tenacity and his family's work pay off., That growth allowed the family in 1996 to move operations from its Salida location to the former A&W syrup manufacturing building at Mitchell Road and Yosemite Boulevard in Modesto., Even his wife of 67 years, Gemma Sciabica, played a big role in the family business. She has written several cookbooks that use olive oil instead of butter or fat in hundreds of recipes., Mr. Sciabica loved selling his olive oil at the farmers markets in downtown Modesto, Pleasanton and San Francisco, even though the bulk of the company's business came from its Yosemite Boulevard store and wholesale operation., "I enjoy the people and displaying my product - and letting them taste it, too," he said in a September 2005 article in The Bee. "I am a salesman.", He threw himself into everything he did, including meeting new customers to discuss his family's products., "He loved the farmers markets," Daniel Sciabica said. "That's why he was such a good salesman, because he spoke to people from the heart."

His home was filled with various musical instruments, physical fitness equipment, and he was surrounded by an extensive library reflecting his inquiring nature and pursuit of knowledge.

Bob was a quiet person, well read, reflective and studious.

Service and interment will be private as he wished. Bob was laid to rest along with his mother and grandfather in Forest Lawn Memorial Park.



Robert J. Hunt

Bob Hunt was always glad to see you. Following his trademark How are ya, a conversation with Bob was likely to be a lively and honest exchange, often culminating with Bobs insightful, humorous and sometimes outrageous view of the world. Bob really made you think. His considerable success in business often challenged convention. The simple solutions he offered to your seemingly complex problems made you wonder just what was holding you back. His raw humor and party antics made you question if the social norms we wear like restrictive cocoons are really all that important. And, Bob really made you laugh., He was always the life of the party, the light in the room and everyones favorite jokester. With just his mischievous smile and boyish charm, he made you laugh. Bob never cared if you were laughing at him or with him. He just wanted everyone in the room to have a fabulous time, and to be sure everyone felt included., Robert J. Hunt was born on Aug. 23, 1945 in Newark, New Jersey. In 1949, the Hunt family moved to Southern California with Bobs brother and two sisters. There, five more sisters and another brother were born and lived in the Hunt family home on Farmdale Avenue in North Hollywood., Bob attended St. Charles School and North Hollywood High School. Following his James Dean teenage years, Bob graduated from Valley State College (Now Cal State Northridge). He then parlayed his independent intellect and a strong desire to win into successful business interests in Southern California and Texas., He loved, struggled and grew from his several marriages and eventually settled on the lake in Westlake Village. There he continued to develop enduring friendships. But his crowning achievement may well be his relationship with his wonderful wife Erla perhaps the only woman to truly know, understand, accept and cherish the unique person that Bob was., Bob passed away in peace on Oct. 26, 2010 at his home in Westlake Village, surrounded by his family. He will continue to live in the hearts of his wife, nine siblings, three stepchildren, scores of relatives and hundreds of adoring, close friends. To say Bob was loved and will be missed would be wholly inadequate., Services will be held at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 7 at Pierce Bothers Valley Oaks Memorial Park, 5600 Lindero Canyon Road, Westlake Village.

Tom was born in Douglas, AZ. The family then moved to Richmond, CA, although Tom stayed behind to complete high school and then join the, Air Corps as an instructor stationed in Texas during, . After the war, he joined the family in Richmond and enrolled in the newly started San Francisco State School of Communications and Dramatic Arts, headed by Fenton McKenna whom Tom greatly admired and looked up to as a mentor. This was the start of his lifetime interest in theatre and everything associated with it. He served as Artistic Director of the Marines Memorial Theatre and had regular appearances in regional and local theatre productions. While vacationing in Yosemite National Park, he met Geraldine Shearer, whom he married in 1955 and had two children. During the ensuing years, Tom founded and served as President of A&B Garment Delivery and President of California Trucking Association. When various elements forced his company out of business, he moved to Nevada in the role of a VP of Comstock Tunnel and Drainage. He kept active in theatre while in Carson City, including acting with local players. Through his various contacts in the theatre world, he was introduced to "The Family," a performing arts men's club, where he served as a long-time member, doing one of his favorite things: bonding with other members of the community. Because of his knowledge of theatrical disciplines, he embarked on his role in "The Family" as a second career, tirelessly writing, directing and acting in dozens of plays and spoken word soliloquies. He would work from night to dawn on the details of scripts, costumes, make-up and lighting of plays, yet was known for his calm demeanor in the middle of chaos.

Through a contact in "The Family," Tom was introduced to and involved in the inception of Hospital de la Familia in Guatemala where he would go once a month despite the dangers of guerrilla warfare. His last thoughts about the Hospital say it all: "I hate to bend your ear like this, but I just love that place so much." Tom's other interests and achievements include serving as Commodore of the Corinthian Yacht Club, member of the St. Francis Yacht Club, Board Member of San Francisco State, President of the downtown Kiwanis Club, and President and Board Member of the Mountain Play. Tom was an active and faithful member of the Unity Palo Alto Church. During a service, he met Janet Gates, where a conversation on his theatre production business led to a mutual attraction and marriage. They were an inseparable couple and worked together at the Hospital de la Familia, on the Mountain Play and on the Bracebridge Dinner in Yosemite each Christmas and many other projects over the next 27 years. Donations to Tom's memory may be made to "The Family Foundation," 545 Powell Street, San Francisco, CA, 94108.
