Along with other UC families, she was instrumental in helping to develop the little league fields where her sons later played. She volunteered for many years at Project Concern, a local women's shelter, worked as a realtor, and also started a Cub Scout pack in UC. When her sons were grown, she started a second career at General Atomic s, where she worked for 20+ years.

She leaves behind Bill, her loving husband of 61 years; her son, Jeffrey (Tina); daughter-in-law, Andrea; grandchildren: Eric, Mallory, and Paige; sister, Elaine Stonemark; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in passing by her son, John William; infant daughter, Sally Ann; and her sister, Lois Vigna (Barney).Services are planned for Saturday, March 6, at 1:00 pm, at Clairemont Lutheran Church.

About Memorial Trees

Honor a loved one by planting trees in their memory. Trees are planted in a forest with the greatest need, at the best suitable time (typically spring or fall), by a team of certified arborists.

Your Sympathy Gift Includes:

  • A digital certificate, customized with your message, that can be printed for your records or given to the family.

  • An entry in your loved one’s guest book, noting your contribution.

  • A listing in a memorial tree registry, showing that trees were planted in honor of your loved one.

Why Plant Trees?

This memorial tree planting will assist in reforestation, improve forest health and area watersheds, and provide a critical habitat for threatened and endangered wildlife.

By planting memorial trees, you not only honor the life and legacy of your loved one — you also help to preserve our beautiful national forests for generations to come.
