Ringel, Dorothy Mae  
DOROTHY RINGEL Dorothy Mae Ringel (n‚e Campbell), 88, passed away unexpectedly June 13th at her home in Chico. She was a native and lifelong resident of Chico. Dorothy worked as Director of Senior Programs at the Chico Area Recreation District for many years, until her retirement in 2004. She was selflessly devoted to her family; to us she was a loving big sister, beautiful wife, tender mother, fierce advocate, and lively companion. Since Dorothy, or Dot, or Mom, or Nana would surely prefer a bit of fanfare to a dirge, let's celebrate a little, for her sake. Dorothy was born August 11, 1926 to Carroll Campbell and Katherine Duensing Campbell. Her people on both sides were among the early white settlers of Butte County - the Campbells operated the Lovelock Inn below Stirling City, and the Duensings ran cattle out of Oregon Gulch. She spent her first eight years living at the Richardson Springs Hotel, where her father drove the stage and her mother kept accounts. Alice (Mrs. J.H.) Richardson was her godmother. The cooks befriended young Dorothy and invited her into their kitchen; here she developed a love of cooking and fine food that would remain a lifelong passion. In the wake of the depression, Dorothy's parents bought a parcel of land on E. 1st Avenue in Chico. Her dad planted an almond orchard and built a house. This was the 1930s and there wasn't much money; the cabinetry was hammered together from salvaged apple crates. Alongside her brothers, Dorothy knocked the trees and worked the huller. Dorothy attended Chico Vecino, Central, and Chico High, class of 1944. There were summer afternoons at Sycamore Pool and ten-cent Saturday matinees at the Senator Theater. When Hollywood came to Chico in 1937 to film The Adventures of Robin Hood, she met Errol Flynn and he kissed her hand. She claimed not to have washed it for a week - although she once blushingly admitted that she rather preferred the more wholesome Patric Knowles. Later, there were USO dances with young flyers from Chico Army Airbase. Then, while working at the Bureau of Reclamation, she met Eugene A. Ringel of Oakland, a bright, ambitious young civil engineer and a wartime Captain in the US Army; the couple were married on November 2nd, 1947. A family soon followed. In her own words, Dorothy felt that "My husband, our three children and five grandchildren are indeed the joy of my life." Today she would proudly add four great-grandchildren to the tally. Nana's house became home for all of us, the place where we were always welcome, always loved, the place to which we could always return. Dorothy's caring extended beyond her family into the community. She worked for CARD for many years as Director of Senior Programs, retiring in 2004 at the age of 77. A friend from the Senior Center had this to say of Dorothy: "We who know her well describe her as being wise, thoughtful, and caring. And friends from her high school days tell me that description fit her then, too. She has a sly sense of humor that helps smooth out the rough spots she encounters daily, and at the CARD Center she cares for us oldsters individually like family." Somehow, in the midst of this busy life, Dorothy managed to take time to travel worldwide - she loved Venice best - and to earn her wings as a solo airplane pilot. She was also an accomplished pianist; as a young woman, Dorothy performed on a weekly public radio show and as accompanist at the Episcopal Church. She was an avid gardener who was sometimes seen delivering paper baskets of Mayday flowers to neighbors, hand-in-hand with her three-year-old daughter. Dorothy is survived by her husband, Gene Ringel of Chico, her brother Budge Campbell of Ukiah and John Campbell of Paradise, her three children, five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Do small things with great care. Give your hands to serve and your hearts to love. The family invites all who knew and loved Dorothy to join us for a memorial service to be held at Newton-Bracewell in Chico on Monday, July 6th at 10AM.

Ross, Donna Rosalind (MacDonald)  
Donna Rosalind Ross (MacDonald) Jan. 8, 1924 - June 9, 2015 Passed away peacefully, with family by her side, at the age of 91. Donna was born in Rock Island, Illinois, and spent her childhood growing up in Seattle, Chicago, and Atlanta. Following high school, she attended secretarial school and became employed with Diamond Match Company; Donna was a talented dancer, and as a young woman, won many dance competitions; she also was named Sigma Chi Sweetheart at Georgia Tech. Married in 1948, Donna and her first husband settled in Marin County in 1954, where she raised their two children. She enjoyed trips to Nevada to play the slots and see her favorite entertainers, and would join her Bingo buddies at the Novato Boys Club every Friday night, no matter what. Donna loved to share anecdotes of all those in her family tree, and took great pride in the accomplishments and moral character of many. She could see the humor in just about everything, including herself, and she loved to laugh and engage in repartee, always able to bring this out in others. Donna might be remembered for having been a bit cheeky, mischievous and even a little stubborn, at times, but those, together with her warm, optimistic and down-to-earth nature, was the compilation of traits that endeared her to so many. Most of all, she will be remembered as a kind, gentle and devoted mother, grandmother, and daughter, loving unconditionally with her whole heart. Donna is predeceased by her husband, Fred L. Ross, and survived by her son, Robert Tuthill; daughter, Rosalind Tuthill; grandchildren, Jennifer Rodano (Nick), Joanna Jones (Michael) and Daniel Ross; great-grandchildren, Marina, Isabella, Ian, Makenna, Griffin and Vivienne; former daughter-in-law, Eileen Ball, and step-children, Deborah Ross, Alison Ross and Melanie Tuana. Heart-felt gratitude to Senior Access, Lifelong Medical Care, Home Instead, Rafael Nursing Facility and Hospice by the Bay; the guidance and support we received from this incredible team of people, over these last 12 years, will never be forgotten. Please donate, in any way that you're able, to the Alzheimer's Association or any of the aforementioned. Donna will be buried with her husband in a private service at the San Francisco National Cemetery on Friday August 14th, 2015. An open gathering to laugh and share good memories will follow.
