Matanane, Ignacio  
Aug. 16, 2016 Ignacio "Inas" Matanane was born in Piti, Guam 98 years ago, he was the oldest of five children. In Feb. of 1940, he left his island homeland and joined the United States Navy. His life was full of adventures and experiences, serving his country, he overcame many obstacles and turned them into opportunities. He was an incredible steward in the US Navy, eventually becoming head of household for many high ranking officers from Commanders to Admirals. His homemade recipes, especially his desserts, were second to none and his effortless hospitality was admired by all those who knew him. His travels in the Navy brought him to many places in the US and abroad, San Francisco, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, Chicago and Oklahoma to name a few. Even after retiring from the Navy, because of his incredible work ethic and trustworthy, honest nature, he began to work at the Pentagon, handling security for many top secret operations. It was in Chicago, where he met the love of his life, Eva Bridges. They were married in 1953 and were an inseparable couple, facing the adventure of life as a team, both hard working, kind and loving, they eventually settled and made their home in Lawton, OK with their beloved dog, Teddy. There was never a shortage of close friends in Lawton. Inas and Eva were quite a duo and enjoyed a beautiful marriage of 45 years, until she preceded him in death in 1998. After losing the love of his life, he decided to leave his beloved home of Lawton, OK to be closer to family in Vacaville in 1999. With the memories of his loving wife, Lawton and his close friends in his heart, he made way for California and adapted to his new home in Leisure Town Senior Community in Vacaville. In true "Inas fashion," his warm spirit and hospitality made him quite popular among the residents and his signature peanut brittle and lemon chiffon pie were the talk of the town. He always had a knack for taking life's challenges and not only making the best of them- he conquered adversity with a true heart, kindness and zest like no other. His endearing Chamorro accent with an "Oklahoma" southern drawl instantly charmed all those that had ever had the opportunity to share a glass of red wine with him or hear about his many Navy adventures. Although he never had any children of his own, he truly loved his family and always enjoyed the many family get-togethers, he never missed a chance to say "I love my family, I love you all!" He said these words with a genuine sincerity that made all of his family, specifically his many nieces and nephews, feel special. His joy and love of life truly lit up the room and always made him the life of the party, even at 98 years old. The legacy of Ignacio Matanane lives on is his family, his vitality and delight for life will never be forgotten and will always bring a smile to the faces of those who have been fortunate enough to know and love him. Ignacio is survived by his loving sister, Catalina Matanane Rojas, devoted niece/caretaker, Sandra and James Wilkes, as well as six nephews of the Rojas Family, 18 nieces and nephews of the Matanane Family, and many cherished great nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Eva Matanane; mother, Victorina Matanane; brothers, Jesus, Edward, and Juan Matanane; and brother-in-law, Enrique Rojas. Recitation of the Rosary will be held at McCune Garden Chapel in Vacaville on Aug. 25, at 7 p.m., (viewing 5 to 8 p.m.) and there will be a Funeral Mass at St. Mary's Church, Vacaville on Aug. 26, at 11:30 a.m.

Millar, Mary  
Mary Millar Former Antioch Resident Mary Millar of Pioneer, CA passed away on Friday August 12, 2016 at the age of 85. The daughter of immigrant parents, Soledad and Lourdes Gonzales, Mary was born on September 27, 1930 in Hanston, KS. Her family later settled in Pittsburg, CA where she attended elementary and high school. She came from a large family of six sisters and two brothers including her beloved twin sister, Maggie. In June of 1948, she married August Millar and they resided in Antioch, CA until 1973 when they moved to Pioneer, CA. She was a devoted mother of 4 children, Larry (deceased), Rich, Holly and Jeff. She was loved by many nieces and nephews who she introduced to the Sierra Nevada during family camping trips and outings.

She was also a dedicated gardener and spent many hours tending her flowers, shrubs and trees around her home. Throughout her life, Mary was an avid reader with a special fascination for world history and she was happy to have indulged those interests with multiple trips to Europe, Latin America, Russia and China. Being surrounded by her family made her the happiest. Large family gatherings, whether for holidays or everyday events, were her joy. But by far, Mary felt her greatest achievement in life was helping raise her 7 grandchildren.

She passed on her love of learning to her grandchildren and was extremely proud of their academic accomplishments, which include six bachelor's degrees (1 more in progress), four master's degrees, and one medical student.
