California Obituaries 11/14/10


Alexander Hume Anderson Jr.

Alexander Hume Anderson, Jr. Alexander Anderson, a pioneer in early television animation and the creator of such cartoon characters as Rocky and Bullwinkle, Crusader Rabbit, and Dudley Do-Right, died on October 22, 2010. He passed away peacefully at Flanders Court of Carmel. He was 90. Anderson is survived by his wife Patricia Anderson of Pebble Beach; his son Terry Anderson (Naomi) of Napa, Ca.; his son Scott Anderson (Rosemary) of Apache Junction, Az.; his stepson Matt Kennedy of Monterey, Ca.; his stepdaughter Carolyn Kennedy of Pacific Grove, Ca.; his stepson Daniel Kennedy (Michele) of Tucson, Az.; 14 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. Anderson was born in Berkeley, Ca. in 1920. He grew up in a cartooning family, the nephew of Paul Terry of Terrytoons. During summer vacations he would travel to New York to work for his uncle, learning the cartoon trade on such animated favorites as "Mighty Mouse" and "Heckle and Jeckle." Anderson attended UC Berkeley and the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco before serving in Naval Intelligence during, . After the war he went to work for Terrytoons full time. He was excited about the fledgling medium of television, trying to interest his uncle in the idea of developing cartoons for TV. His uncle liked the idea but told him that, since television was perceived as a threat to the movie industry, Terrytoons could not afford to be involved with such an endeavor. So Anderson struck out on his own. In 1949 he returned to Berkeley and formed a partnership with his longtime friend Jay Ward. Their animation studio, set up over a garage behind Anderson's house, produced 195 episodes of "Crusader Rabbit," recognized in the Guinness Book of World Records as the first cartoon created for television. When Ward wanted to move their enterprise to Hollywood, taking with him the portfolio of cartoon characters Anderson had developed, Anderson chose instead to remain in San Francisco and pursue what became a successful career in advertising. In 1968 he moved to Pebble Beach, Ca. It was only after Ward's death in 1989 that Anderson learned his rights to his characters were no longer acknowledged. In 1996 he reached an out-of-court settlement with Ward's estate, reestablishing his claim as the creator of Rocky, Bullwinkle and Dudley. In 2006 he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and subsequently the quality of his life deteriorated significantly. However, he received wonderful care at Flanders, and he seemed genuinely at peace within himself right up until the end. Those of us who knew and loved him consider his passing as an overdue blessing, an opportunity to now grieve for the creative and gentle spirit we have lost. A memorial service will be held Friday, November 19th, at 11:00 am at St. Angela Merici Catholic Church, 9th and Lighthouse, in Pacific Grove, Ca. A reception at the church will immediately follow.

Scotty also worked for Kaiser Permanente, Hitchcock Transportation and Don Keith Trucking, before joining his wife, Alice, in operating Star Stenographic Services, in 1958., Those who knew Scotty, will remember a man with an incredible intellect. Well into his 90's, he could recollect the tiniest details of most events in his life. As Scotty got older, his speech was slower, but his stories held your attention. Scotty had a passion for understanding how things operated, and well into his retirement, enjoyed tinkering in his garage and on the equipment that he had operated for so many years., Scotty was married to Alice Howard Scott. They met while working at Kaiser Permanente during WWII. After the war ended, they came to live near Scotty's family, in Hanford., Scotty and Alice had no children.

He is survived by his sister Harriet Feaver of Fresno and numerous nephews and nieces., It was always Scotty's wish to stay at home as long as possible, and many people assisted in his care over the past few years. But Rebecca Hubbard, who took him into her home and cared for him as part of her family, truly was his angel on earth. Because of her willingness to make this full time commitment, Scotty was able to live in a home environment as his health weakened., Special Mention should also be made, to Adventist Health Home Care and Hospice for playing a tremendous role in Scotty's comfort and allowing Rebecca some respite care that she otherwise would not have received., It was Scotty's wish that he be interred with his wife Alice, in Lodi, California.

John Rieger III

John Rieger III, M.D. (88) Resident of Los Gatos, CA On Nov 10, 2010. Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1922 to Drs. Mary Rieger and John B. Rieger. The Depression was a central experience of his childhood, and he studied hard and kept a paper route. From the age of twelve to eighteen, he spent his summers working on his Uncle Clarence Hoover's farm in Caldwell Kansas, and he carried with him an enduring respect for the native values of rural life. He was an avid equestrian until advancing age suggested less physically punishing diversions. He entered the University of Michigan, where he won recognition as a boxer. However, before graduating, he enlisted in the Navy and trained as a fighter pilot, serving in WWII. He remained active as a Naval Reserve pilot many years after the war, and he returned to a semester at Michigan State, where he and a friend acquired a surplus military airplane which they flew around rural Michigan in their spare time. In due course he completed his bachelors degree at the University of Michigan, where he also received his Doctor of Medicine. He came to California to complete his specialization in obstetrics and gynecology in San Francisco and Oakland, where he met his first wife and father of all his children, Charlotte Fair Rieger. They moved together to Seattle, and eventually settled in Los Gatos, where they raised our family. He practiced Obstetrics and Gynecology in Los Gatos for 32 years, and as he prepared for retirement, practiced at Vandenberg Air Force Base and Kaiser Permanente. He was instrumental in a number of social achievements, including the establishment of Planned Parenthood in Santa Clara County at a time when family planning was becoming an important issue for healthy families. Always driven to achieve and to lead, in 1967 he and another private pilot flew a small, single-engine plane around the world, setting three aeronautical records, and retracing the trans-Atlantic route of his great childhood hero, Charles Lindbergh. In an age of rudimentary instrument navigation, he and his colleague plunged off the edge of Asia and flew 26.5 hours, almost entirely in little or no visibility, and with just two navigational fixes of rumored dependability in the USSR, to arrive in Point Barrow, Alaska. He was a diligent leader and longest serving member (54 years) the Rotary Club of Los Gatos, and even kept his weekly meetings at Rotaries around the world on his six-week global flight. He also maintained an active intellectual life, staying abreast of current events and searching out opportunities to discuss them, including meetings of the Saratoga Men's Club and the Commonwealth Club. He is survived by his long-time partner Joanna Yates and four sons, John H., Jeffrey H., James F., and Christopher R. J. Rieger, as well as four grandchildren, Schuyler M. and Hunter H. Rieger, and Emily F. and J. Andrew McWhinney. Predeceased by sister Elizabeth Comb, Naples, FL.

Patricia Foster

Patricia Chesnut Foster Resident of San Mateo Died at home on Monday, November 8. She had been suffering from cancer and other ailments when the Lord took her. She was most noted for her love of family and friends and her extensive leadership and work with local charities. In addition, she was noted for her humor, organization, intelligence, and remarkable sense of style. She was born in Miami, Oklahoma on April 15, 1931. The eldest of three beautiful girls (Patricia, Marilou & Brenda), she was raised by her parents Dr. Wylie and Pauline Chesnut. She graduated from Holland Hall in Tulsa, Oklahoma in1948. She attended Mills College in Oakland, Ca her freshman year and then graduated from University of Oklahoma in 1952. She moved to Honolulu, Hawaii in 1953 where she met and fell in love with real estate developer, T. Jack Foster Jr., also from Oklahoma. The two were married in 1954 and journeyed through almost 56 years together until her death. On that journey they had two children while living in Hawaii, daughter Lee and son T. Jack III, and then one more, Mark, after moving to Hillsborough, California in 1960 for her husband and his father and brothers to begin development of Foster City. She had no problem making friends, and in fact had more close friends when she died than most people have in a lifetime. That of course is a testament to her loyalty, honesty and integrity. She loved to dance and sing, although her moves were a lot more graceful than her voice; she always knew all the lyrics. However that didn't stop her from singing, because her love of life would not keep her from doing whatever it was she wanted to do. It seemed what she wanted to do was to help others. Pat was a founding member and second President of the Family Service Auxiliary, Vice President of the Auxiliary to the Society of Crippled Children & Adults (now Community Gatepath), Chair of the Fashion Show Committee of the Junior League of San Francisco, and Chair of the Fol de Rol of the San Francisco Opera Guild. Pat was also one of the founders of the Auxiliary and Board member for PARCA, Secretary and Vice President of the Hillsborough Garden Club, and Chair of the Women's Committee of the First Presbyterian Church, Burlingame. She has served with Travelers Aid, San Francisco Airport; Children's Hospital, San Francisco; and with various Hillsborough PTA activities. She was jointly honored with her husband T. Jack by the Volunteer Center as Volunteers of the Year. She and T. Jack were members of the Burlingame Country Club and she enjoyed performing in the annual "Club Show" year after year. She always had the "Never give up" attitude in life, which has rubbed off on her family. She had a great sense of humor and she kept that humor to the very end even though she was in great pain. Her last words to T. Jack were to tell him how much she loved him. A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, November 16 at 3 pm at the First Presbyterian Church of Burlingame, 1500 Easton Drive (at El Camino Real), Burlingame. Contributions in lieu of flowers may be made in her honor to either Community Gatepath in Burlingame or Hillbarn Theatre in Foster City. She left behind a husband, three children (plus three children in-law), ten grandchildren, many nephews and nieces and too many best friends to list. She will be greatly missed. Godspeed Pat!

Ray Herlinger Morton August 15, 1917 - November 6, 2010 Ray Herlinger Morton, 93, passed away peacefully at his home in Bakersfield, CA on Saturday, November 6, 2010, surrounded by his loving family. Ray was born on August 15, 1917 in Dinuba, CA, to Charles Ross and Grace Alice (Herlinger) Morton. He was graduated from Kern County Union High School in 1935, where he was a yell leader and played in the band. He attended Bakersfield Junior College prior to his enlistment in the U.S., in 1939. After the Second World War he attended the University of California in Berkeley, where he was graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering. He married the former Corinne Stutts in 1943. After, they settled in Jacksonville, FL, where he was a Registered Professional Engineer and partner in the firm "Bowen, Morton and Joshi Engineers." He was preceded in death by Corinne in 1977. On March 1, 1997 he married the former Juanita (Anderson) Wheeler in Bakersfield, and is survived by Juanita. He is also survived by his sister Hazel Morton Rees of Bakersfield, son Ray Stutts Morton (Karyn) of Jacksonville, FL, daughter Corinne Morton Haag (David) of Greensboro, NC, niece Mandy Rees of Bakersfield, grandson Charles Ross Champion of Del Mar, CA, and a very large and extended family of Juanita's children: Gerald Alan Wheeler (Kay Marie) of Oakland CA, Pamela Wheeler Ashby (Richard) of Sacramento CA, Ken Wheeler (Lisa) of Bakersfield, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren. Ray was a patriotic American, volunteering to serve in the armed forces in 1939. He transferred to the Army Air Corps, and was trained as a pilot, flying many types of military aircraft, both single and multi-engine. He was assigned to the Pacific theater of war, was a bombing and test pilot, and achieved the rank of Major before the end of the war. Ray was very proud of his Air Corps and military service achievements, and maintained his membership in the Air Force Association. He was highly regarded as a professional engineer, and was a long-time member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers/"ASHRAE." His services were much sought after, even after he formally retired, and he continued to consult in his chosen field into his later years. Ray leaves a legacy of a loving family, and of an extended "adopted" family who knew, loved and respected him as "Grandpa Ray." His presence around the kitchen table, where he spent many hours with Juanita and their family members, will always be treasured and remembered. Ray was a member of the Oildale Church of Christ. By his request there will be no funeral services; a memorial in his honor will be announced at a later time. As he wished, his ashes will be scattered in Kern County where, he said, "he spent some of the happiest years of his life." The family is extremely grateful for the dedicated and caring services of Hoffman Hospice, (including nurses Ana and Felicia, and Chaplin Wayne, among many others), and to care-giver Rita, all of whom were so helpful at this special time of Ray's life. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hoffmann Hospice.

Rose was both a homemaker and worked in the restaurant business while raising her family. She was a loving, giving matriarch who adored her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Rose reserved a special place in her heart for babies and small children, always lighting up upon seeing their shining spirits. Rose and Sal moved to La Quinta in 1995, enjoying the beautiful surroundings, their family and friends. Their home is jokingly referred to as the "Monforte Resort." She loved the Santa Rosa Mountains, especially in the early morning hours when, kissed by the sun, they glowed rose pink, just like her.

Viola Marie Barnes

Viola was born in Mott, North Dakota, September 17, 1916, while her parents were en route to Montana by covered wagon. The family returned to Iowa where her mother died in 1920. Viola was raised by her grandmother in Ottumwa, Iowa. Vi met the love of her life, Burdette J. Barnes (Barney) at Sunny Slope, at a tuberculosis clinic in Des Moines, Iowa where she was working at the time. During the depression, Barney went to Boise, Idaho to find work. He sent for Viola, and they were wed there on July 23, 1937. Like many other depression survivors, they followed work across the country ending up in San Luis Obispo, California, where their first child was born. After a few years they moved to Arcata, California, to work in the Barrel Factory. They then went into dairy farming in Arcata, Orick, and Klamath. In 1949, they moved to McKinleyville and then back to Arcata in 1954. Viola then went to Humboldt State to become a teacher. She graduated with highest honors while raising a family of four and working part-time. She first taught all eight grades at Bald Mountain School. She then taught at the following elementary schools in the McKinleyville School District: Airport School, Dows Prairie Elementary and Morris School where she retired in 1977. Vi was very active at the Arcata Senior Center as a volunteer. She helped out regularly until 2007 when declining health forced her to limit her work there to three days a week. She enjoyed her many friends at the center, and always had something good to report after being there. Vi was a very spiritual person and found great comfort in her Bible after losing Barney in 1964. She loved her country, gardening, reading and the ocean. She passed on her love of growing things to her children and grandchildren. She loved a house full of family, and she will always be remembered for her homemade noodles, peanut butter fudge and cinnamon rolls (Boy, they were good!). Her beloved husband, Barney, her treasured grandson, Matt, her sister Helen Oiler, and her nephew, Jim Oiler, preceded her in death. She is survived by her children: Pete Barnes (Ida Marie) of Medford, OR, Jennie Barnes, Sue Barnes-Hoaas (Dennis) and mike Barnes (Marcia) of Arcata, her grandchildren: Dawn Sisk, Stirling Barnes, Jim Barnes, Chris Barnes, Loren Harwood, Natalie Anderson, and Megan Dyke, and her 14 great grandchildren. She absolutely loved being a grandmother, and her whole family loved her and will miss her greatly. Viola was an extraordinary woman. She took life's challenges and prevailed. She never shirked her duty, and tried to be ethical in all of her dealings with others. She set a standard and expected it to be followed by her children. Their mutual success in life attests to her values. We will miss Mom, but we know she will be joining Barney now, and that makes us all happy, as we know that is what she wanted. She peacefully stated that she was ready to go home to be with her Lord, and we take comfort in knowing that we will see her again in Heaven. At Viola's request, there will be no public memorial. Her wish is for all who knew her to go to the beach (which she loved) and find a white stone. As you throw it into the ocean, say a remembrance of her. As summer comes, the family will choose a sunny day, just as Viola did, and gather at the ocean together in remembrance of Mom, also. In the meantime, we will be looking for the perfect white stone for her. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you may make a donation either through Humboldt Area Foundation to the Matt Barnes Memorial Scholarship for 4-H, or to Hospice of Humboldt. We wish to thank the many nurses and doctors that took such good care of Viola at St. Joseph's. We particularly want to thank the Hospice staff who were such a blessing to our family for the excellent care and comfort they provided to our mother. Please sign the guest book at
