Obituaries from Two Days Ago

Jones, Catherine "Cassie"  
Catherine "Cassie" Jones Born on July 31, 1941 to Barbara and James Smith in Stratford, Connecticut. Graduating from Stratford High School in 1959, she went to nursing school in Brooklyn, NY, and received her LVN degree in 1961. She married in 1964 and had two sons whom she has adored, Mac and Craig. Relocating to the Bay area in 1972, she worked her way through school to obtain her R.N. degree. A highly respected nurse for four decades, Cassie specialized first in emergency room nursing and later in intensive and critical care. In 1985 she married Dr. Ed Jones who became the love of her life. The couple have lived blissfully in San Rafael for 30 years. Cassie was an avid sportswoman. She and Ed became members of Richmond CC. They traveled extensively, including trips to The British Isles, Ireland, Iberia, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, and several trips to her father's family home on Cape Breton Island, in Nova Scotia. They visited Mazatlan each winter, where golf, beach and cuisine filled their days. In the mid-90s, Cassie and Ed were home to Irakly, an exchange student from the Republic of Georgia, who graduated from San Rafael H.S., Lewis & Clark (AB) and Georgetown (MA). That relationship continued throughout life, leading to a trip to Georgia and Russia, several visits from members of family and friends and finally Irakly's obtaining American citizenship. Their idyllic backyard garden was the product of Cassie's handiwork. She was especially fond of flowers that attracted hummingbirds. Cassie was also an excellent cook, preserving (and improving) several of her mother's recipes and mastering many new ones. Mexican and Indian food were among her favorites. She doted on her ten grandchildren and spoiled them rotten. Cassie had a lively sense of humor, loved music and dancing and parties, and was an inexhaustible source of loving kindness to her family and friends. Cassie contracted anaplastic thyroid cancer, a rare but deadly form of cancer. The family is grateful for the care she received from MGH, UCSF, Marin Cancer Center and Hospice and a litany of others. She passed away peacefully July 15 a few days short of her 74th birthday, at home, surrounded by family and nurse friends. She was predeceased by her parents and two brothers Jim and Gordon. Cassie is survived by her husband, her two sons and daughters-in-law, two stepsons and their families, her grandchildren, three brothers, Bill, Dick and Warren, numerous nieces and nephews, and many friends. She will be sorely missed by all, who will fondly remember her and her motto, "Life is sweet". Friends are invited to a memorial celebration of Cassie's life at Richmond Country Club, 1 Markovich Lane, Richmond, on August 15 at 10:00 AM followed by a luncheon. Donations in lieu of flowers to Wildcare (in San Rafael) and the Marin Cancer Society.

Kwock, Edna Leinaala  
Edna Leinaala Kwock Bid her final aloha to her Ohana and friends on July 27, 2015. Born on March 24, 1919, she was the 6th great granddaughter of King Kamehameha 1. She was proud of the fact that although she came from Waimea, a small town in Hawaii, she experienced once in a lifetime adventures. Prior to her being a supportive military wife she was one of the Aloha Maids, dancing the hula in the 1930's with the Ray Kinney Band. She performed in New York City as well as traveling around the country spreading the Aloha Spirit. As a result, in 2002 she joined the remaining Aloha Maids to honor Ray Kinney, who was inducted into the Hawaiian Music Hall of Fame. After settling in Marin County California in 1965 she worked as a Civil Service keypunch operator where she continued to share that same Aloha Spirit with everyone she met. You could always hear her teaching new friends bits of the Hawaiian language, her favorite phrase being "okole maluna". She joins her husband of 68 years, Lt. Col. John Kwock (Ret.) and leaves behind her children; Kathy (Reid), John Jr. (Tung), grandson Shawn and many family and friends. Edna will be interred with her loving husband at the Hawaii State Veteran's Cemetery in Kaneohe, Hawaii.

After the war, he attended and earned his first degree from the University of Wisconsin and then advanced to the Marquette University School of Dentistry. While in Wisconsin Bill met the love of his life, Mary Lynn (Johnson) Lindow, married, and started his family and dental practice in Marin County, California. His patients and family were always very important to him. He was hard working, and placed a high value on "doing the right thing". Bill always enjoyed his independence, thinking deeply and having a good debate. Over the years Bill enjoyed many road trips and traveling. He was a proud homeowner, an avid tennis player, hunter, skeet shooter, and scuba diver. He was a successful investor, enjoyed collecting, reading, playing chess, sharing a joke or a good conversation. Bill's children want to thank everyone who helped him towards the end of his life as he continued to be the soldier he was, coming through it all with his dignity and independence intact. We love and will miss our beloved father. The family will be mourning our loss privately with no funeral.
