Schuman, Clara Helene (Schalcher)  
Clara Helene Schuman (nee Schalcher) Passed away at the age of 95 on October 29, 2014 in San Rafael, California. She was born in Bremmgarten (Aargau) Switzerland on January 20, 1919 to Emil and Clara Grob Schalcher. The youngest of three children, she adored her older brothers Emil and Willie with whom she remained close until their deaths. Clara studied hospital administration at the university with a specialty in dietetics and food service planning. After the university, Clara ventured to England where she was employed as head dietician in a mental health institution. In 1953 she traveled to the United States where she began work as a nanny and housekeeper in Hillsborough for a recent widower, Jerry Schuman and his daughter Elly. Clara and Jerry married in 1958 and moved to Fairfax the following year. They both lived happily in their family home for the duration of their 36 year marriage until his death in 1994. Clara volunteered for many years at the Sonoma Hospital Auxiliary for the Developmentally Disabled and also for the American Red Cross. She was generous with her time and keenly interested in helping those less fortunate. Proud of her Swiss heritage, Clara was an excellent cook, famous for her Swiss Christmas cookies and chocolate cakes. She loved to travel, often going to Europe, New Zealand and Australia, and in later years traveling and hiking with the Sirs. She loved the San Francisco symphony and museums and maintained a small group of loyal Swiss, Danish and French friends whom she met upon arrival in California. Clara enjoyed gardening and the outdoors and spent many hours tending to her beautiful array of plants and flowers. She was spirited, independent and intelligent until the end. Clara was predeceased by her husband Jerry, her son-in-law Michael O'Meara, parents, brothers and their wives, nephew Peter Schalcher of Zurich and niece Annalis Lubiere of Paris. She is survived by her daughter Elly Haddley and granddaughter Jenny of Brisbane, Australia. Clara was much loved and will be deeply missed by her family, many cousins in Fresno and Switzerland, wide circle of friends and the Aldersly community where she lived the last years of her life. All are welcome to attend a celebration of Clara's life at 2:00pm on Friday, December 5, 2014 at Hendrix Hall, Aldersly, 326 Mission Avenue, San Rafael. In lieu of flowers donations in her memory may be made to the San Rafael Humane Society, the American Red Cross or the charity of choice.

Smither, Kenneth Ray  
Kenneth Ray Smither 12/11/51 10/18/2014 Humboldt County lost another native son and he leaves behind many who will grieve this loss and miss his gentle wise ways. Kenny was a man of few words who would want me to keep it simple here too. He was a mountain man, a cowboy, a hunter and fisherman, a logger and veteran from the Air Force, a dear and loyal friend and a most unique character. Kenneth Ray Smither died suddenly and unexpectantly at his home following a short illness. He was preceded in death by his parents Elvin Chester "Sam" Smither and Anna Marie Smither. There are too many extended family members and friends to list all, but he loved you all in his quiet way. He leaves his siblings Ernest Lee Smither, Boyd Chester Smither, and Shirley McDougald. He was uncle to many, nephew to few; and a dear friend to many. Even the chickens loved this gentle man. They would come to Kenny and bow down for his touch. He was a one-of-a-kind man. He was a cowboy in modern times. Yes, there is a future plan for a Celebration of Kenny's life. It will be a potluck held at the Blue Lake Grange Sunday, December 7th from 12:00PM to 4:00PM. Details are available from Shirley McDougald @ 707-273-2954 or Rachel Miller @ 707-496-1139. Please join us in honoring the life and the man who was Kenny.
