Bengtson, Edla C.  
Edla C. Bengtson Sept. 30, 1925 - July 27, 2014 Walnut Creek Edla Charlotte Carolyn Johnson Bengtson, 88, passed away peacefully on July 27, 2014, during hospice care in her home, with her sons Bruce and John, and daughter-in-law Lyra by her side. Named for her mother and both grandmothers, Edla was born September 30, 1925 in Dallas Texas to the Rev. Emil J. and Mrs. Edla E. Johnson. Her family called her Honey. Edla's grandparents immigrated to America from Sweden, and she grew up amid Swedish culture. With her older brother Daniel, her family moved to Bay City Michigan in 1926, and then to Houston Texas in 1928, where her younger sister Lois, and brothers David and Paul were born. Her family moved again, to Chariton Iowa in 1941, where Edla graduated high school as an 11th-grade senior in 1942. Following a year of junior college, Edla began attending Bethany College in Lindsborg Kansas in 1943, where her sister Lois also enrolled in 1944. Graduating with a degree in Music Education in 1946, Edla rejoined her parents, who had since moved to Bakersfield, and began working as a public school music teacher in nearby Delano. Edla married Carl Anders "Andy" Bengtson on August 28, 1948, in a service officiated by Edla's father, and Andy's father, the Rev. C. O. Bengtson, at the Lutheran church in Bakersfield that Rev. Johnson established. Andy's job as an exploration geologist for Chevron required the couple to move frequently around California early in their marriage, from Pittsburg to Paso Robles. Settling in Los Angeles, Edla taught public school music in nearby Bellflower for three years before retiring from teaching to give birth to Bruce in 1954. Relocating to Bakersfield, Edla gave birth to John in 1957. The family moved once more to Fullerton in 1964 before relocating a final time to Walnut Creek in 1971 that remained her home. A devoted wife and mother, Edla was an accomplished musician, knitter, and tennis player who loved to travel, and delighted in baking, sewing, studying French and Swedish, and entertaining family and friends. She planned and arranged for her family to take extended camper-van trips across Europe in 1971 and 1976, and returned to Europe on trips with her father in 1972, her sister in 1982, and friend Barbro in 1993. During the 80s and 90s Edla took master level piano classes, bought a concert grand piano, played Rachmaninoff and Chopin recitals in San Francisco, and was active in the Sigma Alpha Iota music fraternity, hosting many programs at her home. Edla especially delighted in being a grandmother to Linden and Arden born in 1993 and 1994. After 54 years of marriage, Andy passed in 2002, at the same time Edla's health declined. Alert to the end, Edla spent her final years quietly enjoying reading, following current events, working puzzles, and watching tennis on TV. Edla will be remembered as a warm and loving woman with many talents and interests. A memorial service will be held Saturday, December 27, at 1:30 p.m., at the Club Room of the Heather Farms Park Community Center in Walnut Creek.

Bennetto, Karen  
Karen Bennetto Karen Bennetto's favorite saying was "If you can't be a good example, at least be a horrible warning." She devoted her 61 years to doing just that. Karen worked as a nurse before leaving her job to raise six perfect children. She had an unerring nose for excitement, managing to ride elephants in the high deserts of Oregon; to discover the "employees only" floor of the Lawrence Hall of Science; and to travel to Chile in winter (ostensively to move). She grew the most amazingly fragrant roses. She loved field trips, documentaries, and horses. She disliked kale, but we all have our flaws. She claimed to possess a magic wand but whenever asked to use it replied that it was in the repair shop. In her own mind, Karen presided over an English cottage while advising the President and chronicling the tales of her offbeat offspring; her floors were never dirty and there was never dog hair lying around. In her imagination she frequently traveled to other countries and spoke many languages. Eating sweetened condensed milk out of the can held no calories. In the last few years of her life, Karen was devoted to caring for her mother (now deceased) and her father, as well as her husband and three children still at home. People knew her as the slightly eccentric, colorful mother whose open heart and open doors sheltered the occasional stray, and who always had a funny story to tell usually at her own expense. Her demise was swift: after being diagnosed with Amyloidosis in February of 2014, she spent her remaining months creating mementos for her family until her death on December 8, 2014. She looked forward to seeing her Lord face to face in heaven and slipped peacefully away. Although her body was failing, she never lost her brand of unique humor, and suggested that her funeral be a Viking style pyre in the pond. A viewing for friends and family will be held at Eversole Mortuary on Friday, December 12, 2014, from 5 to 8 p.m. A Memorial Service will be held at Redwood Valley Community Church on Saturday, December 13, 2014, at 1 p.m.

Boheman, Gloria  
GLORIA BOHEMAN Gloria Boheman passed peacefully on December 13th, 2014. Gloria worked many years for Bank of America, and retired as a school bus driver. One of her greatest joys in retirement was to run into former students and hear about their adult lives. Gloria enjoyed cooking and baking for her family, participating in church activities, and playing pinochle with friends. Her favorite time of each year was when summer arrived and she would leave to spend several months at the coast in her RV to enjoy the cool air and seafood. Gloria played bingo with her friends and family frequently, and loved to recount tales of lucky wins and near misses. Gloria was married for 53 years to Harold "Spud" Smith, and is survived by their two children, Mike Smith and Janet Bringham, five grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. Following Spud's passing in 2001, Gloria married Darryle Boheman in 2003 and enjoyed 7 years of marriage before he passed in 2010. Gloria will be greatly missed by her family and friends, and is sent on her journey with all our love. Services will be held Saturday December 20, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. at Saint Monica's Catholic Church in Willows, Ca. Arrangements made with F.D. Sweet and Son.
