Daughter of Boston obstetrician, Benjamin Parvey, she was born in Boston, Mass., and educated at the Girls Latin School and Pembroke College of Brown University. While at Pembroke, she met her future husband, academic obstetrician, George Solish. Separated by War, they married upon his return from service. Bernice was active in the League of Women Voters (and a representative to the State of Michigan constitutional convention), Planned Parenthood, American Association of University Women, Red Hat Society, North County Newcomers Club and Congregation Ohr Tzafon in Atascadero. She was an early supporter of the National Museum of Women in the Arts and alumni president of her class at Brown University. Bernice touched many lives. She supported her husband, which allowed him to pursue a very demanding career. Her children relied on her to find a path through the rocky teenage years and beyond. She found ways to connect with her grandchildren, although they were 3,000 miles away. A wonderful hostess, she was always ready to celebrate. Her family members were her most treasured guests, but her door and her heart were always open to the stranger and the traveler. We will miss her. Bernice is survived by her husband, George; three children Alfred Solish MD, Sharyn Solish MD and Samuel Solish MD; and five grandchildren Benjamin Solish, Daniel Solish, Barbara Solish, Diana Siegel and Elena Siegel. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2010, at the Congregation Ohr Tzafon, 2605 Traffic Way in Atascadero.

Bonnie Lou Kuckenbaker

Bonnie Lou Kuckenbaker passed away Thursday, Nov. 18, 2010., Bonnie was born March 22, 1922 in Troy Texas the second youngest of six children. Her father was a tenant farmer and fireman and her mother worked in a laundry. Because Bonnie had three older sisters she got out of most of the chores. Her older sister Ruby said, "She didn't do chores, she rode the cotton sack!" In her later years Bonnie recounted her many childhood adventures with her youngest brother Winston; they would climb high into the barn rafters looking for baby pigeons and also liked to sneak coffee out of the kitchen to pretend they were chewing tobacco. For Christmas the kids would put a sock out and find apples, oranges, walnut and candies in the morning., She graduated from Troy High School in 1940, which she remembered as the time she got her first store-bought dress. Three years later she met her husband Clifford Kuckenbaker at the PX on Fort Hood where she worked selling sundry items and he was an Army GI. Six months after their wedding they moved back to Laton where Cliff worked for the Sunmaid Raisin Company temporarily. Soon after he began working at Better Buy Wholesale where he stayed for 33 years. Bonnie and Cliff bought their home outside Laton for $1,200.00, which included the house and twenty acres. Clifford worked nights at Better Buy Wholesale and farmed during the day., Cliff was cultivating cotton the morning Bonnie went into labor with their first child George. Their neighbor Bessy Alman ran across the field to let him know the baby was on the way. Their second child Kay was born five years later., With her young family she particularly cherished trips to Cambria where the Kuckenbaker family shared a small seaside cabin called The Rock House. Her daughter Kay remembers her excitement when they prepared for these vacations, "We'd always leave the grocery store with huge boxes of groceries like we were going to move there. It was a tradition for us to have a bag of marshmallows.", Bonnie worked at Superior Dairy in Hanford from 1952 to 1962 where she loved the customers but didn't like making milk shakes because the aluminum cup froze her already sore hands. She transferred to Superior Dairy in Lemoore in 1953 and one year later changed jobs again to work at The Koop in Hanford where she stayed the next 23 years. Bonnie liked driving fast; on a frosty morning on the way to work at The Koop her car hit ice and slid down the bank under the Kings River bridge on Excelsior Ave. Luckily the river was dry, lest she said she may have drowned., In the early 1960s she was a dedicated fan of the TV program The Beverly Hillbillies and didn't miss the program for social or school functions. She also loved arts and crafts; she attended ceramics and oil painting classes after hours at Laton High and in the early 1970s she started decorating cakes for friends and family. She took several small commissions for her paintings and also hung her work at The Koop., For over twenty years she played a weekly game of Skipbo with her close friends but was otherwise retiring and preferred to stay home most of the time where she liked to watch television and the humming birds outside the living room window. Among close friends and family her most notable quality was the intense love and affection she showered on her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who all called her Grandma Kookie., She is survived by her son, George Kuckenbaker and his wife Diane of Presque Isle, Michigan, her daughter, Kay Kuckenbaker-Smith and her husband Wade who live in Laton, her older brother, Albert Hartgrove of Baltimore, Maryland, eleven grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren., Among her last words were, "I love my kids, I love all my kids so much.", Visitation will be from 9 to 11 a.m., Monday, Nov. 29 at the Church of the Brethren, 3090 E. Mt. Whitney in Laton. Graveside Services will be at the Oakgrove Cemetery in Laton.

Cameron Scott Silva

A parent's worst nightmare has begun. Your son is late coming home, your calls go unanswered. Then in the early morning hours you get that dreaded phone call that something awful has happened.

You keep hoping and praying that it's all just a bad dream but these prayers will go unanswered., At the young age of 20, Cameron Scott Silva, son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin and a good friend to many has been taken from us by a senseless, violent and tragic act. In the blink of an eye his life is over. He will not have the chance to marry and have children of his own. To raise a family, have a normal and happy life and grow old with his loved ones. But he is now safe from harm and in a better place. He left this world on Nov. 16, 2010, 3 years to the day that his beloved grandmother Minnie Schooler had passed on., Cameron lived at home with his mother, Sally Silva, father, Rick Silva and 2 brothers, Will and Austin. He graduated from Vacaville High School in 2008. He had previously worked at Nike in the factory stores and had just started a new job at Best Buy. He liked his new job and was enjoying life with his girlfriend Sarah Berkheimer. They were planning a life together, but all those hopes and dreams have been cut short., Cameron encompassed all our hearts, deep and fully. He knew how to love and was a warm and giving person. Cameron was the sunshine of all our lives, loved by everyone; family and friends. He was brilliant, naturally athletic, mechanical, an artist and an all around special person. Nothing can take his place; he will live on forever in our hearts and memories., He is survived by his mother and father, Sally and Rick Silva; brothers, Will and Austin; and paternal grandmother, Ellen DeLege; many aunts and uncles, Mary Jane Schooler (Nana), Nancy Martinez, Al and Connie Martinez, Jeff Schooler, Joe Schooler, Rob and Alicia Silva, Ron Silva, Rachelle and Steven Bourne, Marilyn and George Perrone; cousins, Joshua Schooler, Michele and Ivan Werblow, Michael Martinez, Jamie Lynn Schooler, Sydney Bourne, Cody Silva, Preston Silva, Mason Silva, Phillip Perrone and numerous extended family and friends. He was preceded in death by maternal grandmother, Minnie Schooler; an uncle, Larry Martinez; and paternal grandfather, Richard (Dick) Silva., Let us all "celebrate" Cameron's Life. Hopefully we can take something positive from his short life and tragic passing. Make sure you tell your children how much you care about them and that you LOVE THEM on a regular basis. Nothing is certain in this life and you never know when it might be the last chance you get to express your feelings!, A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 1 p.m. at The Father's House, 126 Peabody Road, Vacaville.

Emma Cortez Geronimo

Emma Cortez Geronimo 1935 - 2010 Emma Cortez Geronimo was born on May 6, 1935, and passed away peacefully at her home on November 26, 2010. She was born to Jesus and Bertha Cortez in Shafter, Texas and moved to Lamont, California in 1952 where she resided for the remainder of her life. Emma worked as a farmworker beside her beloved son and companion, Andy for countless years, refusing to retire and just finished the fall season in October. Emma is preceded in death by her husband, Andy and siblings, Elva Tabada, Willie Cortez, Joe Cortez, Henry Cortez, Frankie Cortez, and Carlos Ortiz. She leaves behind children: Andy Buendia, Millie Kovacevich (John), Linda Adams, Ida Sullivan (Barry), Ernie Geronimo (Kristie); grandchildren: Gabriel Adame (Nikki), Anthony Adame (Jessica), Christopher Ramos, Tyler Sullivan, and Nicholas Geronimo; great- grandchildren: Gabriel Adame, Mark Adame, Hannah Orpe, and Noah Adame; siblings: Cruz Torres, Ruben Cortez, Charlie Cortez, Eduardo Cortez; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. Everything and everyone blossomed and thrived under Emma's love and care. One of her favorite pastimes was working in her garden, growing the sweetest fruits, the juiciest tomatoes, and the most healthy and succulent flowers and plants. Emma's greatest passion was surrounding herself with loved ones throughout the year, feeding and laughing with them while she stood in her kitchen making sure your belly was content. She knew everyone's favorite food, and made sure she had it made or in her pantry for them every time they came to visit. There were times when she had several different dishes made during a simple Sunday family dinner to make sure that everyone had what they wanted. For the grandchildren, there were always Cheetos, Otter Pops, freshly baked cookies, and gum. Anyone who walked through Emma's doors was made into a friend for a lifetime, overlooking their flaws and always accepting them for who they were. The relationships she created with each friend and family member was unique, and that person made a special place in their heart that only Emma could fill. Just having the honor of knowing and loving her, made you a better person. Services for Emma will take place at Hillcrest Memorial Park. A viewing is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 1, from 4:00-7:00 and a Rosary at 7:00. Mass will be on Thursday, Dec. 2, at 10:00 a.m., at St. Augustine Church in Lamont, with a graveside service to immediately follow.

Frank Knapp Dobesh Jr.

Frank Knapp Dobesh, Jr. April 6, 1952 - November 24, 2010 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Psalm 116:15 Memorial services will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 4, 2010 at Doughty- Calhoun-O'Meara Chapel for Frank Dobesh, Jr. who died November 24, 2010. Frank was a native of Bakersfield and graduated with honors from C.S.U.B where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree and certification as a C.P.A.. He worked for Deloitte Haskins and Sells until his health failed. For the last several years Frank had resided in Tehachapi where he was able to enjoy his favorite outdoor sports including skiing, bicycling and motorcycling. Frank is survived by his mother, Virginia Dobesh Grother; sister, Jeanette Wallace; niece, Cara Wallace; paternal uncles and aunts and a multitude of friends including long-time friend, Barbara Ferrante. He was preceded in death by his father Frank Dobesh, Sr. and beloved nephew Chuck Wallace. Family members and several friends have contributed their thoughts about Frank: Frank, also known as "Dober", started his life as a smiling, shy boy who grew up to be a kind, loving man who always showed compassion for others. Part of his childhood was his love of animals. (Dogs, cats, the king snake behind the piano, and the alligator and salamander that ate hamburger). Frank made me proud of him every day of his life. He lived his life with love for his family and friends and will live on forever in our hearts. Mom As his "sis" I always got to tag along on all his latest adventures. He loved all that life had to offer, tree house getaways, fast cars, music, antiques, old movies, hikes, biking straight up a hill for miles; but one of my fondest memories is when he parked his Harley Davidson in our living room. He valued life and loved people. He would give you the shirt off his back or go buy you one. That was my brother who is now enjoying the smile of Jesus and the laughter of his nephew Chuck. Jeanette I adored my uncle; he was my friend and I was his "Pal" or his favorite niece as he would lovingly call me. I confided in him like he was a father and planned grand adventures with him like best friends. We shared the same insight that "life is an adventure" and he wanted in on it and being in his presence always had the elements of fun and a good time. I will remember and miss his big bear hugs and his deep voice that reflected his kindness and loving spirit. Cara Frank's many friends could always count on his good nature, loyalty and enthusiasm for life. Above all, he was respected for his unwavering spiritual and moral compass. John Hall Frank had a huge appetite for everything; food, adventure, motorcycles, knowledge, bicycles, knives, anything collectible, food (did I already mention that?). All of those things were dwarfed by his infinite desire to love. He didn't have to tell me he loved me, although he often did, it was always present in his eyes. He was the most unique and loving person I ever met. He wasn't very good at hiding either of those beautiful qualities. Farewell my friend, Mike Driscoll. In life Frank taught understanding, hope and love. It is now time for me to continue his lessons. Mike Grasso Most of the time we forget the most important things in life and the things that God has taught us. Be kind and helpful to those in need. Be thankful for the things we have. Be compassionate and understanding. Be loving to all those around us particularly the ones that need it most. Be a good friend. There are people we keep as close friends because they inspire us to keep those important things in mind. What a great success Frank was at doing just that. I am somewhat envious because now he can explore the things that we spent much time discussing that we believed to be true. I am at peace to know that he is with God.

Born January 16, 1933, to Benjamin and Thelma Hook in Pierceville, Indiana, Margie was the eldest of six children. She graduated from Osgood High School in 1951, and through the cherished sponsorship of her maternal grandmother Flora Gartin, graduated from, with a BS degree in business. She began her business career as an accountant with Irwin Management Co. of Columbus, IN, and was briefly married to Robert Carroll of Florida from 1957 to 1962. Always independent and adventurous, Margie moved west, living and working in Denver, CO, a city and state fondly remembered throughout her remaining life. But California beckoned, and in 1970 she found her heart in San Francisco, happily working for Levi Strauss & Co. until her retirement in 1992. While living and working in San Francisco, Margie discovered and fell in love with neighboring Marin County. She moved to Marin where, in 1978, she met the love of her life, Richard Couvillion.

He dearly loved his daughters-in-law, Lisa (Michael) and Mouna (Dante), and their entire families. Rare was a holiday or special event that didn't include all of the branches of the family. He is also survived by eight grandchildren who adored his child-like love of life and incredible humor - Mario, Gino, Angelina, Giovanni, Ava, Grace, Reagan and Roya. He rarely missed one of their horse shows, football, basketball, volleyball, and soccer games. He was extremely proud of each and every one of them. He is also survived by his sister, Nancy; nephews, Gary, Glen and Richard and nieces Diane and Linda. He is now reunited with his "little angel" Angela, his parents, James and Amelia and his brothers William, Dino, Babe. Mario was an original in the construction industry in California. He truly was an Icon, whose integrity and determination was known in the industry beyond state lines. He helped establish, lead and steer Ghilotti Bros., Inc for 60 years, 40 years as co-pilot with his beloved brother Dino, building it into one of the largest and longest licensed construction companies in the state. Over his career, he held every position in the company, from loading cement bags as a teenager, to President of the company. The heartfelt responsibility that he felt he owed to his pre-deceased parents and brothers to "keep it going" was like a powerful force of nature. Mario was never going to retire; he was so passionate about the construction business and Ghilotti Bros., Inc. As such he still came in every day for work and loved working on bid proposals and strategies to do the work cheaper, better and faster than anyone. On Saturdays you could find Mario and Frank Palagi, trusted employee of 56 years, at San Rafael Joe's after they had left the office, a ritual he maintained for over 40 years. The company flourished with Mario and Dino as it grew to over 500 employees during the peak years and to four office locations. Such notable projects completed by the firm are Fourth St. Streetscape in San Rafael, Miracle Mile, San Pedro Rd and the site work for the Marin Civic Center, The Village and Vintage Oaks Shopping Centers. Recent notable projects include S.F. International Airport Runway widening, building the Crissy Field Park and Wetlands and the recent completion of the $100 million Highway 101 widening through central San Rafael. Mario was especially satisfied to see the 101 project completed this year, as he considered it the "crown jewel" of his long career. Mario was born the fourth of six children from his Italian immigrant parents James and Amelia Ghilotti on December 4, 1922. He graduated from San Rafael High School in 1943, lettering in football. He then enlisted in the Navy for the duration of World War II. Mario was extremely proud of the fact that the James Ghilotti house on Fourth Street displayed a banner showing that all four living brothers had enlisted in the military. He became a rear turret machine gunner on a TBF-Avenger, which was a torpedo dive-bomber. He flew numerous missions off of his jeep carrier, the Nehenta Bay. He saw action in the invasion and support of the Marinanas including the Saipan invasion while with Admiral Hulsey's third fleet. He also survived the Pacific war's deadliest typhoon that resulted in the sinking of several ships and severely damaged his carrier. Mario had a lifelong love of the United States of America, the military and especially our veterans. He led the effort for many of the war memorials in Marin County, usually as a major financial donor and builder of the projects, most notably the beautiful Lone Sailor memorial overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge from Sausalito and most of the memorials in front of the Marin Veteran's Auditorium. Just this last year, when he heard that the Marin Jr. ROTC at Novato High School was going to be canceled because of budget cuts, he found out the shortfall for the year and donated the difference saving the program. After his Navy service, he first attended College of Marin. When he tried out for football there were 150 players and he started out sixth string. By the time they played their first game he was starting on the line and eventually made the all Northern California team. He always said that no matter what the odds, you had to keep showing up and working as hard as you can and good things will happen. He ended being amongst the first round of inductees to the College of Marin Athletic Hall of Fame. He went on to play college football for The University of San Francisco. Even though he was only 5' 9" and weighed 170 pounds, he played amongst some of the greatest football players ever at the linemen position. Their roster included the most eventual NFL Hall-of-Famers and All-pro's to come from one college football team. Unfortunately, he had to leave the team in 1950 because of the failing health of his father and he needed to help the brothers run the company, which they ended up buying shortly before his death. The next year the 1951 Dons went undefeated, untied and uninvited (to a bowl game) and have been called by Sports Illustrated, "The best team you never heard of." Even after starting his construction career, he still found time to play semi-pro for many years with the Petaluma Leghorns, often playing in front of 5,000 fans at home games. Mario met the love of his life and partner Eva in 1957 and married her in 1961. They purchased property in Nicasio, which became the famed Mar-Ghi Arabian Horse Ranch, managed by Eva. Here is where Mario began his lifelong bond with riding his prized Arabians. They competed in horse shows throughout the southwest, eventually having two horses make the World's Top Ten Rankings. An outbreak of rabies decimated the stables and Mario and Eva survived after six months of treatment. Mario and Eva also raised three devoted children on the ranch, Michael, Angela and Dante. In 1954, Mario talked his brothers into buying a concrete plant in Cloverdale and moving it to San Rafael and naming it Shamrock. Years later, their competitors in the construction business realized fully that no Irishmen owned Shamrock but rather those Italian boys at Ghilotti Bros., causing great disruption to the business. Mario and Dino ended up selling their stock to their brother Babe and two other men they admired greatly, Lee Ceccotti and Lou Della Valle. The company has prospered into one of the largest and most successful materials companies in Northern California. Mario and Dino's business endeavors were not limited to construction, becoming partners in many businesses from cemeteries to golf courses, radio stations, hotels and restaurants. They were even partners in a women's professional tennis team based in Honolulu, Hawaii called the Hawaii Lei's. Mario was also a great builder of charitable and civic institutions. He was a founding member, alongside his beloved friend, John Govi, of the Marin Athletic Foundation, where he served on the board until present. He was a founding member of the Marin History Museum, where he served on the board until present. He was a founder of Engineering Contractors Association (ECA). He was a founder of the Associated of Engineering Contractors Employers (AECE). He was a founder of the Golden Gate Arabian Horse Association. He was a driving force in the early years of the Marin Builders Exchange. He was a founding member of an organization fostering better relationships between government and businesses called the Marin Coalition. He gave up on politicians shortly thereafter. Mario was an early investor for his cherished friend, Bill Murray at the Bank of Marin, where he served on the Board of Directors for many years. He also served on the Board at Westamerica after the merger. He again was an early investor when Bill started up the Bank of Marin for the second time and has taken great pride in watching it continue to flourish. He was one of the longest serving Rotarians, where he attended every Monday for close to a half-century. He achieved their highest charitable honor, the Paul Harris Fellow. He achieved other Paul Harris Fellows on behalf of his wife, then two boys, then daughters-in-law, then two grandchildren. He had six to go. Always building. He was a long-time ardent supporter of catholic causes, especially Marin Catholic. He donated to various aspects of the school and helped build athletic fields. He was instrumental in the building of the Pope John Paul II Student Activities and Religious Center. He was very pleased to see the completion of it this year and the appreciation of the students and families of Marin Catholic. Mario was honored with the following accolades: The Rotary Foundation's Paul Harris Fellow recipient; President in 1958 of the North Bay Chapter of the Engineering & Grading Contractors Association; Founding Member of the Engineering Contractors Association; President in 1977 and Construction Man of the Year in 1980 for the Northern California Engineering Contractors Association; Marin Coalition Lifetime Directorship in June of 1984; William Ghilotti Memorial Contractor of the Year in 1974; San Rafael Christoforo Colombo Club Italian American Citizen of the year in 1982; Founding Member and President in 1990 of the Association of Engineering Construction Employers; Marin Builders Exchange Lou Della Valle Construction Industry Man of the Year Award in 1980. Mario had several passions and did not waste a day of his life, being as he was of "The Greatest Generation." His horse rides on Thursdays and Sundays with Patrick McNeil, Gary Boero, and Mike Smith, took them all over the countryside. Once the group logged over 100 trail rides in one year and covered over 10,000 miles of trails in Marin County. He was a dedicated member of the Sonoma County Trailblazers. Despite being diagnosed with cancer in January, Mario made the annual trek this year in June, receiving the coveted belt buckle for his 50th consecutive ride. In recent years, as Mario's office swelled with memorabilia, a museum was set up in another part of the office. World War II books and artifacts adorn the walls with cousin Gary faithfully assembling the numerous plane models that Mario mailed away for a couple times a month. An avid 49ers and Joe Montana fan, he and Eva attended numerous games and Super Bowls. If you rode in his Ferrari or red Escalade you were likely to hear his favorite entertainer, Frank Sinatra, belting out a tune. One thing is for sure... Mario did it his way. He rarely missed a grandchild's sporting event. We will miss the cowboy hat in the stands at MC Football games and that familiar voice yelling, "Knock somebody down"!! Visitation will be held Tuesday, November 30th and Wednesday, December 1st from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Thursday December 2nd from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Monte's Chapel of the Hills, 330 Red Hill Ave., San Anselmo, CA 94960.

Niels Pfeil

Niels Pfeil Niels Pfeil was born on September 26th, 1923 on a Danish farm to Carl Phillip and Christine Pfeil. He helped his father manage dairy cattle and raise crops including sugar beets. He was part of the Danish resistance during the Nazi occupation of Denmark. As a young man Niels immigrated to the USA in search of a drier climate due to health reasons. He settled in Montana managing one of the largest cattle ranches at the time. Soon he was the proud farmer of his own Montana wheat farm. To help pass long wintery days, Niels took up oil painting for which he consistently won first prize ribbons at the Montana State Fair. Favorite outdoor activities included hunting, fishing and taking long walks around the prairie. In 1982 Niels and his family moved to Lompoc.

Patricia Martin Pedroia

Patricia (Trisha) Martin Pedroia, 58, of Occidental, CA, died unexpectedly on her ranch, Tuesday, November 23, 2010. She will be greatly missed by family and friends. Trisha was preceded in death by her husband Vince Pedroia and her parents Leo and Pauline Martin. She is survived by her stepdaughter Joelle Prather (Richard); and granddaughter Fiona; by her stepson Jason Pedroia and grandson Victor; her Chihuahua Sassy, horses Red and Andy; and a colorful tapestry of family and friends from around the world. Each of us a thread, captured by her smile, her laughter and unconditional love. Trisha was born December 15, 1951 in Highland Park, Michigan. In the 1970's she and a girlfriend loaded up her car with a few belongings and headed west to California. She worked for the University of California, Davis for 25 years, with her last 18 at Bodega Marine Laboratory as the Human Resources Manager. She retired April Fools Day 2006 with a friend and co-worker. They celebrated "graduation" with a two week trip to Hawaii and never looked back. Trisha and Vince "The Hat" Pedroia were married August 23, 1980 and celebrated their 26th anniversary shortly before his death May 29, 2007. Together they built their hill top home on Vince's family ranch; including a barn and a riding arena for Trisha's beloved horses. In 1996 they planted a small vineyard from which award-winning Sonoma County wines are produced. They shared a love of cowboy music and poetry, dancing and riding both horses and the rails. Trisha kept Vince's legacy of poems, cartoons and stories alive by publishing a collection in 2006 called "A Mano". Trisha's interests were varied and passionate. She was a gifted equestrienne, and after 15 years of high-level show jumping competition, she left the ring for the pleasures of trail riding in western Sonoma County with her friends. She was the consummate music enthusiast, who thought nothing of driving many miles to attend live shows by singer-songwriters. She supported emerging artists and was a vocal advocate for those she admired. This passion took her on some of her greatest adventures riding music trains in Canada, Mexico and the Southwest, and backpacking on horseback deep into national parks with the artists, poets, musicians, and fellow fans who became an extension of her family. Trisha was a gifted photographer with a keen and sensitive eye. Her photographs of nature and family celebrations are part of her legacy. She won several ribbons at the Sonoma County Fair. She loved to dance and met Vince in a dance class, where they were first students and then assistant instructors of California swing and ballroom. For the past three years, she enjoyed contemporary line dancing several times a week with close friends. Known by friends and family as a person of immense integrity and compassion, Trisha also had a glint of mischief in her eyes and a smile that lit up any room. She had a delightfully incongruent group of friends who got to know each other through the tales and music she shared from her adventures. Her story telling skills always left you feeling as though you'd been along for the ride. Trisha loved deeply and was deeply loved. Excerpt from Brethren by Vince Pedroia: Then we laugh. And go side-by-side. Blue sky as far as the horizon. Horizon as far as the sky. And roundness that lets us go on forever. Together. In lieu of flowers, please remember Trisha with a contribution to one of the organizations that was important to her: Sutter VNA & Hospice, 1110 N.

Roger Lee Coburn August 10, 1932 - November 25, 2010 Local Racing Legend and NHRA Hall of Famer Roger Coburn passed away November 25, 2010 after suffering complications from emergency surgery at UCLA. Roger was a member of the legendary racing team of Warren, Coburn and Miller, which were better known as the Ridge Route Terrors. Wheelman Warren, tuner Coburn, and sponsor and partner Marvin Miller, hailed from Bakersfield, and had to make a three-hour tow over the San Gabriel Mountains on Highway 99, the famed Ridge Route, to reach the mecca of Southern California dragstrips, which earned them the nickname "The Ridge Route Terrors." There are stories of other teams having spotters stationed at the end of the route to see which freeway the Terrors would take and what their destination might be so that the other teams could quickly head off to a different track, as far away from them as possible. Roger loved life and enjoyed the thrill of racing right up to the end. When he left this world he took a piece of everyone's heart with him and he will be truly missed by his family, friends, and fans. Roger is survived by his daughter, LeeAnn and her husband Jeff Annis; brother, Larry and sister-in-law Shelley; brother, Bob and sister-in-law Leila; sister, Jewel; and sister, Juanita Warren, who is married to racing partner James Warren; 3 grandsons, Joshua, Jacob and Jordan, and many family and friends.

Ruby Savage

Ruby is survived by her son, Dwight and his wife Jo Ann, and her niece, Martha "Toppy"Quall, whom she loved very much. Ruby was an avid gardener who enjoyed growing vegetables to share with the community. She was a lover of cats and animals and couldn't resist taking care of any who strayed into her yard. She did this to the extent of making sure they were spayed or neutered and nursed to health if they became sick. She was a mother to all the children in the neighborhood when her children were young and was a cub scout den mother for several years. She always had "goodies" available fresh from her home baked oven. In her leisure hours she did crossword puzzles, read books, did paintings and many forms of needlecraft. The daughter of Norwegian immigrants, Ruby was born and raised on the plains of northern Montana near the town of Gildford. She was willing to share her stores of life there to anyone who would listen. One, in particular, was the story of her and her dog. She had a perilous journey to school one day where she had almost been attacked by coyotes. But her dog, who walked with her every day on the long journey to school and then came back to school to take her home at the end of the day, protected her. While her life had been hard, she never complained and felt proud of her heritage. Ruby left Montana and moved to Washington State to live with her sister and finished high school, at Stanwood High School. This is where she would meet her future husband, Frank Savage. During WWII Ruby worked for the Great Northern Railroad in Havre, Montana. Towards the end of the war, Ruby and Frank were married in Great Falls, Montana. After they were married, they moved to Anchorage, Alaska where she would give birth to her two sons Dwight and David. In 1951, Frank's work brought Ruby and the family to McKinleyville, CA where she would find a home and remain until her passing. Here, in McKinleyville, Ruby worked as a foreman on one of the major bulb farms. During her time there she made many friends and these friendships carried on over into her retirement years. She met with her friends weekly, where they would joke, chat, go to lunch, have coffee, reminiscence about old times, and generally have a great time. These were some of the happiest days of Ruby' s later years. Ruby was a wonderful, strong woman, so full of life. A life that will be missed by all who loved her. A memorial service will be held Friday, December 3, at 3:30pm at Paul's Chapel in Arcata to celebrate Ruby's life. The family welcomes all who knew and loved Ruby to join us in this celebration. The family requests that donations be made to Sequoia Humane Society in lieu of flowers. Please sign the online guestbook at

When asked why he did not retire younger, he would say, "I loved my patients and I loved my work." Dr. Brown was the only child of Samuel Brown III and Margie Jones Brown. He survived his devoted wife of 64 years, Margaret Tuttle Brown, who passed away in 2006. Dr. Brown graduated from Petaluma High School in 1936, College of Marin in 1938, and from the College of Physicians and Surgeons Dental School in San Francisco - now the University of Pacific Dental School - in 1942. He had married Margaret Tuttle in 1941. Upon graduation from dental school, he joined the U.S., Air Corps where he served for three and one-half years in the Medical Corp, achieving the rank of Major. After, , they returned to Petaluma where Dr. Brown opened his dental practice in 1946. He is survived by his three children: Linda Jo Fitz of San Francisco, Sam Brown of Santa Rosa (Ginger Brown), and Patricia Tuttle Brown of Petaluma (Stephen Volz), and their cousins Bill Parent (Monica Parent) of Redmond, WA and Judy Parent Augustine (Ted Augustine) of Walnut Creek. He also leaves his four grandchildren, Sam, Peter, Stephen and Lillian and great grandson, Tyler. Dr. Brown was born in 1919 in San Francisco and lived most of his life in Petaluma, primarily in the house that he and his wife built on 10th Street. He descended from two pioneer Petaluma families. The Browns settled in Petaluma after arriving in California via the "Brown-Davis wagon train" out of St. Joseph, Missouri in the 1850's. Dr. Brown's maternal lineage, the Jones family of Bloomfield, California, descended from William Jones (Susan Carroll Jones) who also came to Sonoma County in the 1800's and were ranchers. His mother, Margie, worked as a nurse after having earned her nursing degree at what was then Stanford Hospital in San Francisco. Young Sam (IV) and his cousin Art Parent were raised together at 901 D Street, the home of their grandmother Harriet Brown, the wife of Samuel Brown II, who had earlier commissioned the plantation style home for her. Dr. Brown gave his time for many years as part-time dental instructor in the dental school of his alma mater in San Francisco. He was a lifelong member of the Redwood Empire Dental Society where he served as President. His community work in Sonoma County included efforts to encourage the fluoridation of water, membership on the Petaluma Library Board, as well as Lion's Club. He enjoyed sports and, in particular, basketball which he played in both high school and college. He was an avid reader, and he and his wife traveled extensively, discovering an undying love for the Hawaiian Islands in the early 1950's and journeying to six continents with life-long friends. Throughout his life he enthusiastically shared his interest in anthropology and foreign lands with his patients, his friends and his family. In a 1991 interview, he said "When I die, I hope that it is remembered that I cared for my family, my grandchildren, my parents and my friends; that I created an interest in the world and all its marvels in my children and their children. And, that I loved dentistry and tried to help people to the best of my ability." Funeral services will be held Sunday, December 5, 2010 at 1:00 p.m. at the PARENT-SORENSEN MORTUARY & CREMATORY, Petaluma, CA.

TYLER CHAISE HAMNER 05/09/1983 ~ 11/30/2000 Only child of Elvia Franco There is no beauty the world beholds, That surpasses the depth of love that a mother feels, For the child she can no longer hold It\'s been 10 years son, since your passing and it saddens me to no end to think about the incredible loss, to me and those who knew you. I look at your beautiful angelic face and my heart swells with love, I feel so blessed and proud. You are far away, I dream of you in the horizon and words fail, and yes, I know that you are with me; you, my moon, are here with me, my sun, are here with me. I wish I could take the pain away, If I can make it through the night there\'s a brighter day. I miss and love you so, so much. I would have loved to see the man you would have become.
