Troup, Patrick  
Patrick Troup Dec. 3, 1985 - Sept. 3, 2016 Dear Dear Patrick, you left us too soon and suddenly after 30 years. We will miss your bright smile, your intelligence and your good sense of humor. Patrick leaves behind his mother Marge, his father Dave, his brother A.J., and his sister Gracie and Gracie's mom Barbara. He also leaves behind aunts, uncles, cousins, and countless friends. Patrick was born in San Francisco, and moved with his family to West Marin at age 9. He was enrolled in College of Marin. He was a constant community spirit in Fairfax, CA. He organized and promoted the annual Good Festivals. He was able to establish close connections with adults as well as kids, who he loved to play with endlessly. He was an avid sports enthusiast as a player and watcher all his life and was a Giants, Warriors, and 49ers fan. Patrick's spirit will live and shine on within us. His kindness and compassion for all people left an indelible mark on those who knew him, loved him and appreciated him. Good bye dear sweet man. We will love you and miss you forever. You were awesome! Donations in his memory can be made to the SF/Marin Food Bank, the Fairfax Open Space Committee, the Fairfax Food Pantry or any other "Good" cause that inspires you. Patrick's memorial and celebration of life will take place in Fairfax, CA at the Women's Club at Peri Park on Sunday October 2nd at 1:00 pm.

Wells, Julienne Denise  
Julienne Denise Wells entered this world on October 19th, 1982 . She was silent, and began the fight of her life and passed just as silent when all the fight in her was gone. Her body was worn and battered, she was just too tired to continue on. On September 11, 2016 Julie was reunited with her Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Julie was only 33. She leaves behind her most beloved son, her two brothers, three step brothers, her sister, her four sisters through marriage, her aunt and seven uncles, numerous cousins, Grandmother/father and all her friends made throughout the years. Those that knew her loved and cared for her deeply. She loved unconditionally friend or stranger. Her heart knew no bounds. Our hearts are filled with sorrow, yet in the back of our sorrow is the belief that Julie has her perfect spiritual body and is now walking hand in hand with her Lord and Savior. A Celebration of Julie's life is scheduled for September 23, 2016 in Rancho Cucamonga, with a reception following. Flowers and condolences may be sent to: 9944 Rose Drive Oak Hills, CA 92344

Bill was born in East McKeesport, PA on February 2, 1939 to Lawrence William Welsh, Sr. and Elna Welsh. He is the oldest of 6 siblings. He married Dorothy after a short courtship. They said it would never last, but 55 years later, they were only separated by Bill's passing. Bill served in the Air Force and received full military honors at his burial. Bill worked for IBM for over 26 years and for Seagate another 4 years. In his retirement, he worked part-time as a park ranger for the City of San Jose at Alum Rock Park. It was his dream job to get paid to walk in the park. Bill took every opportunity to be one with nature. Whether it was going for a long run to clear his head, or getting the family out camping as often as possible, he would always prefer to be outside. More than anything, Bill was a family man. He loved his family with all his heart and they loved him. He is survived by his wife, Dorothy Welsh; his children, Laura Welsh Litzinger (Brian) and Diana Welsh (Chris Sanders); his grandchildren, Miranda Litzinger and Rachael Litzinger; his siblings, Eileen "Lee" Mischo, Glenn Welsh, Jan Welsh, Jon Welsh, and Bruce Welsh; and countless nieces and nephews. He is pre-deceased by his nephew, Matthew Welsh and niece, Aubry Dawson Smith. Bill's family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the caregivers at Regency of Evergreen Valley and Los Gatos Meadows and the countless doctors, nurses and others who helped take care of Bill. You are all angels. Bill's burial was held on August 25, 2016 at Los Gatos Memorial Park. The family will be hosting an open house celebration of Bill's life on October 1 at the family home from 2-8 pm. Memorial donations can be made in Bill's name to the Alzheimer's Association or the American Cancer Society. View the online memorial for Lawrence William Welsh Jr

Astrue, Virginia Vogt

Ginny was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan to Bernard and Cecilia Vogt, and was the first in her family to earn a bachelor's degree, graduating with honors from Aquinas College in 1952 before moving to Washington, DC where she was married to Robert Astrue in 1956. Over the next 10 years, they had 5 children while living in Seattle, Washington and Detroit, Michigan before settling next in Arcata, California. Ginny moved to Hillsboro, Oregon in the early 1990's, residing there for the remainder of her life. Beyond focusing on her family, work was a central part of Ginny's life, beginning as a telephone operator while she was still in high school. She served her communities in a variety of positions: as a school teacher, administrative clerical support for the US Government, dental and chiropractic offices. But Ginny's passion and interest was in libraries, where she invested the majority of her career, retiring from the Hillsboro Public Library in 2010. Virginia was an enthusiastic advocate for education, music, wildlife preservation, and nature conservation. She enjoyed symphony concerts, singing, hiking, and traveling the world. Ginny dedicated many hours as a volunteer at the Audubon Society of Portland, but was also active in numerous other interests and groups over the years, including UNICEF, the League of Women Voters, Humboldt Chorale, and Portland Liedertafel Harmonie. Ginny had a lifelong affiliation with the Catholic Church. Ginny is survived by her former husband Robert Astrue, five children: Mary Hamilton, Margaret Barrett, Elizabeth, Joseph, and Elaine Astrue, ten grandchildren: Rebecah and Timothy Barrett, Jeffrey and Laura Hamilton, Tor, Beate, and Johanne Røttingen, and Sophia, Evan, and Olivia Astrue, and fifteen nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents Bernard and Cecilia Vogt, sisters Clarice Kuberski and Rosemary Van Gessel, brother Charles Vogt, and her grandson Ethan Brockman-Astrue. The gift of Ginny's life will be celebrated by her family in Seaside, Oregon, one of her favorite places, in a private memorial in the near future. Interment will follow at Resurrection Cemetery in Wyoming, Michigan, near the resting places of her closest family members. In lieu of flowers, Ginny's wish would be consideration of a Tribute Gift to the Audubon Society of Portland http://audubonportland.org/support/give , or the Alzheimer's Association http://www.alz.org/join_the_cause_donate.asp in her memory.
