Blum, Nancy  
Nancy Blum Sep 26, 1956 - Mar 21, 2015 Nancy was tragically taken from us while doing what she loved, hiking at Point Reyes with her boyfriend Eric Kwang. Born in Syracuse, NY, Nancy made her way to San Francisco in the late 1970s and fully embraced all that the City had to offer. She moved to Mill Valley to focus on her raison d'ˆtre, raising her son Keith. She was an utterly devoted mother, sharing her enthusiasm for art, culture, and travel with him. Museums, music, literature, science, all were sources of both pleasure and education. She found the perfect career as a preschool teacher. She taught for many years in Mill Valley at Robin's Nest and at Tamalpais Preschool. When her own nest was empty she returned to San Francisco and continued teaching, first at St. Luke's and then at The Serra Preschool. Parents and children alike adored her. Nancy enjoyed every day of her life and shared her joie de vivre with anyone who was lucky enough to know her. She was outgoing, vivacious, and drew people to her from all walks of life with her intellect, humor, charm, and kindness. Whether she was exercising at the Presidio YMCA or attending a performance of Madama Butterfly at the Opera House, Nancy was the epitome of style, grace, and beauty. You would never spot a pair of baggy sweatpants in her closet. She combined two of her passions, hiking and exploring France, on regular trips to Europe. She loved nothing more than hoisting her pack and setting off on a trail in the Alps, trekking from one chalet to the next while savoring the scenery, the food, and the friendships that developed along the way. Her most recent source of joy was spending time with her three beloved grandsons. She is survived by her son Keith Callenberg and his wife Rosemary, grandsons Michael, Gregory, and Dominic, siblings Mary, Linda, Tom, Roger, Charles, goddaughter Mackenzie Capp, and many nieces and nephews. Brother David predeceased her. A celebration of Nancy's life will be held at a future date.

Claus, Hedy Hermine

Hedy was a native of Baden bei Wien, Austria. She grew up there with her sister Erika in the tumultuous times leading up to and through WWII. From a very young girl, she developed a love of adventure and all things alpine. After the war she moved to Sankt Johann im Pongau, Austria where her love of mountaineering and skiing continued. In 1956, at 24, she immigrated to America, following her sister to Watsonville; she met her husband and built her family. Watsonville would be where she spent the remainder of her life. She enjoyed a 32 year career in the banking industry, beginning at the original Pajaro Valley National Bank and finally retiring from Wells Fargo Bank in 1989.

She took pride in her business integrity and the thorough caring service she provided her many customers and friends. She was active in the community right from her arrival in Watsonville beginning with the Soroptimists Club, Young Ladies Institute, Bowling Leagues and Venture Club where she made lifelong friends. She always made time for family vacations to enjoy Tulare, Yosemite, Clearlake, Camanche, Lake Tahoe, Hawaii and several trips back to her homeland of Austria. In retirement she toured Europe, visited Japan, Canada, Mexico, and not long ago made bucket-list trips to see the Grand Canyon and Niagra Falls. For many years she was active on the Watsonville High School Foundation Board, was a long time member of the German-American Club of Santa Cruz, Pajaro Valley Historical Association, and the Wells Fargo Retirees Club. Her retirement passion though was truly golf; she never missed an opportunity to hit the links with her family and friends, and was a long time member of the Casserly Ladies Golf Club.
