Alegria, Conrad Christopher (Featured)  
Conrad Christopher Alegria Conrad Christopher Alegria passed away at his home in Gardena on November 7, 2017 surrounded by his loving family and friends. He was born on July 27, 1960, in Inglewood, CA. Conrad grew up in Gardena, CA and attended Gardena High School.

He also leaves behind his nieces and nephews, Michelle, Aaron (Rosey), Matthew, Morgan, Clay, Courtney and Shelby; and a host of other loving friends and relatives. In 1987 Conrad walked into the Burnt Tortilla restaurant in Gardena as a customer- he never left! There he met the love of his life, Kathy. For the next 30 years they worked side by side at the family restaurant. He was also employed as a Longshoreman in San Pedro, CA. Conrad loved his family and friends unconditionally - he didn't care who you were and where you came from - he treated everyone with dignity. His loyalty and love was evident in the way he protected his loved ones. They knew that they could depend on him no matter what. No task too big, no distance too great, if you called Conrad you knew he would be there. He touched the hearts of many, especially his friends, the locals and the homeless of Gardena. Conrad was affectionally known as "Mr. Gardena". No crime committed, no juicy gossip nor any love triangle, would escape his notice - he was everywhere! To all that had the privilege of knowing him, Conrad will be remembered for his compassion, selflessness and his incomparable generosity. He will be dearly missed.

Bussone, Agnes C.  
Agnes C. Bussone December 14, 1927 – November 12, 2017 Resident of Santa Cruz Agnes passed away while fighting her last medical battle on November 12, 2017, surrounded by her family in the days and evenings prior to her passing. The "Cat of Nine Lives," we all thought she'd continue on to her "Tenth Life." Agnes was born in Santa Cruz at the old Sister's Hospital to Francis and Carmie Pedrazzi. She was the youngest of five siblings (Catherine, Tony, John and Lew) who have preceded her in death. Raised in Gilroy, Hollister and San Jose, Agnes graduated from Notre Dame High School in San Jose – Student Body President – Class of 1946, making forever friends with Jeri, Barbara, Harriet, Nadene and others. She was proud that her class was able to celebrate their 70th high school reunion last year of which she took part. She attended San Jose State University, received a Bachelor's and Master's Degree and became an elementary school teacher in her early adult years. She met her husband, Armand, while working summers at Almaden Vineyards in San Jose. They were married in 1951 and spent 63 astounding years together until Armand's passing in 2015. After her teaching career, Agnes raised their only child, Fran, and they became inseparable. She was also a caregiver during this time to her elder parents, in-laws and aunties. She then became interested in real estate, becoming a realtor in San Jose, dragging Fran to many open houses and finding every dead-end street, it seemed, while previewing property each weekend. Later, she became a real estate broker, before moving to Santa Rosa, California for Armand's work with Geyser Peak Winery. She focused her expertise not only on houses but vineyard properties in Sonoma County, walking many, many acres during her 30 years in business. Throughout this time, she developed lifelong friendships with her business contacts, clients and neighbors, all becoming "her family." She became "Mom" to Fran's friends as well, accepting all in to her heart and home. Agnes was always there with helpful advice, a secret stash of funds or fun-filled adventure to share. Upon retiring, she and Armand returned to Santa Cruz, the ocean town they both loved. Agnes pursued her interests with Friends of the Library; attended and sponsored local artists at Open Studios; re-established old friendships and hosted our annual family reunion. She continued with her lifelong passion for sports, especially football, and her seasonal football bets with family members. She continued purchasing lottery tickets and playing games of chance, always with the thought of winning the next big payout to help family, but never herself. In later years, plagued with various medical issues, she rose above these trials and became friends with her wonderful doctors, nurses and pharmacists creating a social club of sorts. If you met Agnes, she immediately became your friend and would forever help you in any way she could. Her sense of humor; that "Mom" look you would receive if she disapproved; the twinkle in her eye when she was coming up with a new scheme and her irreverent independence will be forever missed. Our hearts are heavy and broken with our loss. Our Matriarch is gone. Agnes is survived by her daughter, Fran; son-in-law, Lee; grandchildren, Alana, Heena, Adam, Maria and Nicholas; great-grandchildren, Alexa and Ander; sister-in-law, Norma; nieces, Marlene, Toni and Gayle; nephews, Anthony, Don, Jack and Mark; many cousins, family and friends; and her always companion, Lulu Kitty. The family will receive friends on Thursday, November 30, 2017 from 5 – 8 PM with a recitation of the Rosary at 7 PM at Santa Cruz Memorial – Mission Chapel, 1927 Ocean Street Ext., Santa Cruz, CA. A Catholic Mass in her honor will be held on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 1 PM at the Oblates of Saint Joseph – Shrine of Saint Joseph, 544 West Cliff Drive, Santa Cruz, CA with a committal ceremony to follow at Santa Cruz Memorial Park. She will always be "Forever 39!"

Cann Jr., Maurice J. (Murry)  
Maurice J. Cann, Jr. (Murry) Maurice J. Cann, Jr. (Murry) died peacefully at his home on October 14 after a short battle with liver cancer. Murry was born November 28, 1933, in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Maurice J. Cann and Gladyse Waldauer Cann. After attending O'Keefe Grammar School and Hyde Park High School, where he was a proud member of the Schmeggler Fraternity, he graduated in 1954 from Michigan State College (now University). Murry's early years growing up in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood were the source of a good many humorous tales including his trip to Camp Menominee in Wisconsin. The Camp's motto was, "The boy you always wanted comes home from Camp Menominee." The Camp Director's wife would kiss each of the campers every night, which particularly annoyed Murry, so he reversed his position on the cot so that she kissed his foot. He became an overnight camp sensation, a virtual legend in his own time. Fulfilling his duty with the U.S. Army in 1957-1958, Murry was stationed in Karlsruhe, Germany. During this time, Murry took action on his long time interest in drama and the performing arts by joining the Karlsruhe Civic Theatre. He starred in a production of "My Three Angels", which had a prestigious performance at the Badisches Staatstheater in Baden-Baden. While stationed in Europe, his fondest memories were traveling to St. Tropez at the height of the Brigitte Bardot sightings. In 1959, Murry moved to San Francisco to operate a Specialist Post on the San Francisco floor of the Pacific Stock Exchange. He left his beloved Chicago White Sox as they were about to win the 1959 World Series. It wasn't too much longer before the acting bug bit the young stockbroker again. He was recruited by the University of California Professor William I. Oliver to play the lead in Dr. Oliver's autobiographical comedy-drama, "To Learn to Love." Playing opposite Murry in this play was a young freshman named Stacy Keach. Mr. Keach went on to become one of America's foremost film and stage actors. Murry loved the camaraderie of the trading floor and hated it when computers started taking over the place. He particularly loved the early morning trading hours, which allowed him and his associates to have a cocktail, or two over lunch. Murry was the major reason the Pacific Coast Stock Exchange had a softball team. In the mid-1980's Murry and several of his friends organized a softball team that began to play in City Rec Leagues in Larkspur and then in Corte Madera. First named the Biltwell Bombers, then later the Flatiron Flyers, who were sponsored by the Flatiron Bar & Grill. Murry was the starting catcher, later Manager, and was eventually designated Manager for Life. His Uniform Number 1 was retired by his teammates in 1993. Claiming that he had played in organized baseball and softball games for nine decades (1939-2014), he still went for a record. After turning 80, he was able to say that he had gotten a hit every decade of his life. Murry enriched the lives of his teammates through his knowledge of the game, his wit, and his after-game camaraderie. As a member of Marin Tennis Club, Murry's dedication to his friends and his tennis is very well known throughout Marin County. Always a leader, with a mind that bordered on brilliant, his love of tennis kept him at the forefront of every special event at MTC. He served as a "Committee of One" as he created special competitions beginning 40 years ago and continuing today. Murry was truly "Mr. Calcutta" and was honored when a court was dedicated to him. His memory was incredible with an ability to quote results and players, not only from tennis matches, but also across a wide range of sports, which served him well as a contestant on Jeopardy. His many friends remember him as being extremely loyal and truly "one of a kind". In 1963, Murry married Gretchen Saeger and, although later divorced, she was with him to the end. He is survived by his cousins Edward Cann of Wilmette, Illinois; Lois Zisook of Highland Park, Illinois; Judy Hasler of Sparksglencoe, Maryland and Linda Winblad of Riviera Beach, Florida. Murry is also survived by his beloved West Highland Terriers, the incorrigible Jeeves and Wooster, who are enthusiastically enjoying their country vacation. There will be a Celebration of Murry's amazing life on November 28 (his Birthday) at 4:00 PM at Marin Art and Garden Center in Ross.

DeJarnett, Mary Elizabeth  
Mary Elizabeth DeJarnett of Palm Desert, California, passed away peacefully in her home on October 6, 2017. She was born in December 1940 to Cleland and Vivian Cotton of Harrisburg, Illinois. She earned a B.S. in Education from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, where she met her best friend and lifetime love, Larry Raymond DeJarnett. They married on June 16, 1962. Their union was a masterpiece of selfless love, passion, and friendship spanning 55 years, 3 months, and 20 days. Mary began her career as an elementary school teacher but soon got promoted to "Mom" with the birth of her son, Steven, in 1966 and daughter, Laura, in 1969. Mary was a patient and loving mother, even during "snow days" in Michigan with two children cooped up in the house. She always kept her household running smoothly, and did so while devoting countless hours of service to her community. Some of her favorite volunteer duties were with the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan; the Banning Residence Museum in Wilmington, California; and especially the Palos Verdes High School Band Boosters. She also was active in the Assistance League of San Pedro, California, where she helped staff the only volunteer-run Post Office in the United States. Church always held a high priority in Mary's life. She and Larry served as church school teachers and Sunday School Superintendents at Orchard United Methodist Church, in Farmington Hills, Michigan. After the family moved to California in 1979, St. Peter's by the Sea Presbyterian Church of Rancho Palos Verdes, California, became Mary and Larry's church home for 30 years. Mary was a deacon and elder at St. Peter's, the Chair of the Memorial Service Committee, and the Co-Chair of the 50th Anniversary Committee. After moving to Palm Desert in 2010, Mary and Larry became active at St. Margaret's Episcopal Church. Mary served on St. Margaret's Compassion and Justice Committee and was the Chairperson of the Forum at St. Margaret's. Mary was also an active member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, a women's philanthropic organization with faith-based roots. Those closest to Mary describe her as wise, caring, insightful, compassionate, and beautiful, both inside and out. She always had a story to share, a destination to tell you about, a book to recommend, and an encouraging word to lift your spirits. She cherished family above all else. Nothing made her happier than a family gathering with grandparents, parents, siblings, children, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews all present. Mary's pet peeves included auto service repairmen who called her "honey", cars with too few drink holders, and having her birthday present wrapped in Christmas paper. Mary was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in February 2015. She benefitted from newly developed targeted therapies that kept the cancer in check for over two years. During this time, Mary lived life to the fullest, continuing with her volunteer work, visiting family, morning walks with Larry, playing mahjong, reading countless books from the library, and beating everybody at "Words with Friends". Mary is survived by her husband, Larry DeJarnett; son Steve DeJarnett and daughter-in-law Robin; daughter Laura Reighley and son-in-law Michael; and her beloved grandchildren: Megan, Eric, Brandon, and Kyle. Each of these kids has her to thank for keeping them well-dressed through the years and teaching them how to find the best sales at Macy's. They always ate well on her watch, with Honeybaked Ham, party mix, pie, brownies, and ice cream available in abundance at Gram's house. If anyone left hungry, it was their own fault. Mary is also survived by her siblings; John Cotton, Sarah Gilchrist, and Paul Cotton, and their spouses; her brother-in-law, Donald, and mother-in-law, Fern; along with many nieces and nephews. A celebration of Mary's life will be held at St. Peter's by the Sea Presbyterian Church on Saturday, November 18, at 1:00pm, with a reception to follow at the church in Reeves Hall. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to causes that Mary felt passionate about, including: Eisenhower Medical Center-Lung Cancer Research (Rancho Mirage, California) St. Margaret's Episcopal Church-Community Ministries or Friends of Music (Palm Desert, California) St. Peter's by the Sea Presbyterian Church-Adult Education or Women's Ministries (Rancho Palos Verdes, California) P.E.O.-Continuing Education (Palm Desert, California)
