Carol Ann Hensley

Carol Ann Hensley 1936 - 2010 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 November 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 December 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. She was the loyal and loving wife of Billy Hensley, devoted mother of Vicki Satrap and Kenneth Hensley, beloved sister of Sandra Sanchez, Doreen (Bob) Allen, Ingrid Roberts, Diane Silva, Donald and Loren Hov, doting grandmother of Nicholas and Scott Waterworth, Kristi and Nicole Hensley, Jordan Satrap and recent great-grandmother of Eric Shaw. 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. She was a veracious reader and well versed on multiple topics. Her love of history and politics was the subset of many conversations. Carol was the consummate professional and flourished in a long and lustrous career serving in many secretarial, executive assistant and managerial positions. Her career began in 1957 as a secretary at Beckman Instruments/Computer Operations division in Richmond, Ca. While she had many superior technical skills her proficiency in shorthand, a "lost art", was admired at a speed of 175 wpm. She earned the respect of her colleagues and superiors because of her ability to communicate on many levels. It seemed only natural that she would ultimately manage the personnel departments of companies including Zeltex, Inc./Silicon General, Inc. and Ott Water Engineers. After moving 33 years ago with her husband, Billy, to Lakehead, CA, she continued her second career in Redding at Ott Water Engineers, KRCR Channel 7 TV and ultimately the City of Redding in the Planning and Community Development department just prior to her retirement on March 4, 2000. She will be deeply missed by all. Family and friends are invited to a gathering in celebration of Carol's life on Wednesday, November 10, 2010, at 12 Noon, Lawncrest Chapel, 1522 E. Cypress Ave., Redding, Ca. Carol will be placed to rest at Northern California Veterans Cemetery, Igo, California.

Henrietta Anna Lacque Anderson

June 29, 1914- November 3, 2010 Henrietta was born to Clarence Andrew Lacque and Mary Winifred Warnock Lacque in Walla Walla, Washington. As an infant, she and her family traveled the Oregon Trail by covered wagon to Napa, California where Clarence was employed at a vineyard. Henrietta grew up in Napa along with her seven siblings. Henrietta had fond memories growing up in Napa. Her memories included, growing a big garden during the depression and going to school. Of course, her favorite entertainment was barn dances on weekends. In the early 1930's she married Raymond Hurd. They moved to Orland where they had two children Arthur and Lois. Together they operated a dairy for several years on Summit Avenue (approximately Road M today) until her marriage to Raymond dissolved. Other family members eventually moved to Orland to live close to Henrietta. No sooner did the family get settled and Henrietta was off on another endeavor. Despite this, many of the Lacque family members still live in Orland today. Henrietta later married Erwin (Bud) Anderson. Henrietta and Bud had an adventurous life for the next 55 years. In the early 1950's they moved to Ferndale where they bought a gas station/ convenience store. They were able to build a very profitable business, as they were very well liked throughout the community. It wasn't long before they were both bored and eager to move on. Their next years together included countless moves, 50 plus. Bud worked for the California State Parks and Odd Fellows Temple in Santa Rosa as a janitor and Henrietta bought and restored houses. Hard work was a way of life for Henrietta, she was always ready to sell and start another project if she was able to "pass a buck". In 1964, the unthinkable happened; Henrietta lost her son Arthur Hurd to a drowning accident. This weighed heavy on her heart for the rest of her life. Her only comfort was the love she received from her family and friends. Family love and her love for God became the most important aspect of Henrietta's life. In 1995 she and Bud were able to retire. They moved to Hayfork, California to live by her daughter Lois and family. One could say, Henrietta had almost the perfect life with the exception of losing her son. Her life was adventurous, amusing and full of love and laugher. We will miss her dearly. Henrietta is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Lois and George Silva, her grandchildren Donna and George Silva Jr., Arthur Townsend (Susie), Leslie O'Neil (James), Lisa Cooney (Brian) Stace Townsend (Pegi), her great grandchildren, Cary Townsend, Kelli Boots (Brian), Kaylee Townsend, Candice Russ (Quincy), Jennifer Bowen(Jason), Katelyn O'Neil, Jessica Sangervasi (Shaun), Joshua Cooney (Monica), Hannah Gomez (Gustavo), Wyatt and Isaac Townsend, her great-great grandchildren, Michael and Genesis Perry, Nathan and Naomi Bramlett, Tiara Russ, Emilee Sangervasi, Alayna Cooney and Lucas Bowen, her brother Samuel Lacque, her sisters, Mildred Shreve and Esther Hill, her niece Lynn Millar-Head for whom she had a special bond and numerous nieces and nephews. Henrietta is precede in death by her husband, Erwin (Bud) Anderson, her son Arthur Hurd, her parents Clarence and Mary Lacque, her brothers Darrell and Clarence (Bo) Lacque, her sisters Berniece Simmons and Ada Jane Searcey and her beloved black lab, Lady. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Weaverville Hospital, and the staff at St. Luke's Manor. Henrietta appreciated all of you. Service will be held Thursday November 11, 2010 at 11:00 am in the chapel at Sunset Memorial Park in Eureka, California. Memorial contributions are asked to be made to the Seventh Day Adventist Church, 2301 Rohnerville Road, Fortuna, California, 95540. Arrangements are under the care of Goble's Fortuna Mortuary.

He was born in Sacramento, Ca, December 6, 1931, to Lars J. and Marguerite (Kreigh) Wold. Marguerite later married Reid Potter and Lars and his brothers assumed their step-father's last name when they came to live at the Potter Ranch (now the di Rosa Preserve) as teenagers. Lars graduated from Napa High School in 1950. He enlisted in the US Navy and served from 1951-1955 during the Korean conflict, and was stationed at Alameda Naval Air Station and at Atsugi, Japan. After completing his military service he continued his education at Napa Valley College, Cal Poly SLO, and the University of Oregon. Lars worked at Kaiser Steel before he became involved in local politics (a life long interest). He was a member of the Napa City Council from 1963-1966 during which time he devoted himself full time to his council duties, to ending "Napathy," and to the creation of John F. Kennedy Memorial Park, one of his proudest accomplishments. After his council service Lars began a career in the insurance field. He worked for Allstate Insurance and the State Compensation Insurance Fund where he was recognized as top salesman in the state. He was an independent broker in Sonoma and Napa counties for more than thirty-five years, where he administered large group insurance programs for the building industry. Lars never forgot his experiences with animals on one of the County's largest dairy ranches, where he became a proficient midwife to dairy cows and an excellent judge of horses for the FFA. In later years he became an enthusiastic bidder in support of Napa's 4-H members and future farmers at the Napa Town and Country Fair's livestock auctions. Lars received an award from Napa Landmarks in 1991 for the restoration of his turn of the century Victorian home on First Street. After he retired Lars became a very active vegetable gardener. He took great pride in the many blue ribbons he won at the Napa Town and Country Fair for the vegetables he grew in his huge garden on Clay Street. Providing vegetables and free gardening advice to his neighbors, and sharing his garden with world travelers staying at the area's B & B's gave him immeasurable pleasure.

At the time of his death, Hodge, who would have turned 60 on November 13, was the women's and men's head track and field coach at Belmont Abbey College in N.C. Just last month, the Staten Island native had been inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, where he had been the men's and women's track and field head coach for several years. In recognizing his achievements, the college said that he had crafted the blueprint for a winning track program that is still being followed more than a decade after his departure from the school. While a member of the track team at Farrell and captain of the-then Staten Island Community College team, Hodge set several records that still stand today. "It was because of runners like Bill, who were good students and superior athletes, that S.I.C.C. was brought into national prominence in its early days," said Nick Farkouh, associate professor at the College of Staten Island, who coached Hodge at S.I.C.C. in the early 1970s. In addition to Wagner College, Robert Morris University and Belmont Abbey College, Hodge coached teams that won acclaim at Columbia University, Bucknell University, Lafayette College, Mt. Olive College and Rider University. During his career Hodge was honored as "Coach of the Year" at four different NCAA Division I conferences. Several of the runners he trained went on to play NFL football and compete as Olympic hopefuls. Hodge was pre-deceased by his parents William and Dorothy Siller Hodge. He is survived by his loving wife Jadwiga, and four children, Roksana, Gina, Ada and Cyprian. Also left to cherish his memory are his sisters Catherine Hodge Christman and Marie Hodge, brothers Frederick Hodge, John Hodge, and Russell Hodge, and numerous nieces and nephews. The wake will be held at Green Funeral Home, Main St., Danbury CT, on Wednesday, November 10, from 3 to 5 and 7 to 9p.m. Funeral services will be held on Thursday November 11th 10:30 am at Faith Church, New Milford.

Yetta Schneider

Yetta Schneider A beloved wife, mother and beauty, was born as Yetta Meisel in 1919 in San Francisco, California. Yetta was the daughter of Anna Sender Meisel and Louis Meisel. She is survived by her two children, Marilyn Schneider and Barry Schneider, daughter in law Lorin Schneider, grandchildren Cary Schneider and Britton Barkoff (Matthew Barkoff), and great grandchildren Jonah and Mia Barkoff. She had a step brother, Robert Meisel and step sister, Matilda Meisel in Pennsylvania. As a child, Yetta moved to Los Angeles, where she lived in Boyle Heights. Her family moved back to San Francisco when she was 7 years old. She attended Roosevelt Junior High School and Commerce High School. Yetta was a woman who will be remembered as an indomitable spirit by all present in every room she ever walked into. She was an actress in her youth, but too shy to go to Hollywood, although sought after by talent agents. She soon got over her shyness and rose to Diva status, after meeting her predeceased husband of 53 years, Mervyn Schneider, a prominent San Francisco Attorney. Mervyn was the son of Rose and Louis Schneider. Yetta was involved in charity work for the City of Hope and was a participant in many of the Saints and Sinners activities. She enjoyed golf and her crowing achievement was a Hole in One at Silverado Golf Club, which resulted in the shriek heard around the world. A memorial grave site service will be held on Wednesday November 10, 2010 at 12:OOpm at the Home of Peace Chapel, 1299 El Camino Real, Colma, CA. We wish to thank the entire staff of the Jewish home of San Francisco. Yetta's challenging character and personality kept them all on their toes. All at the home gave Yetta the care and compassion of champion gold standard caregivers. Every moment with Yetta was an adventure in living, in humor and in drama.... she will always be remembered and missed and always present in our lives.
