Crosby, Margaretha (Meka)  
Margaretha (Meka) Crosby Of Tiburon, age 76, died on May 19th after a long illness. Born in Arvika, Sweden, Meka immigrated to America at age 22 to join her sister Marianne. Awed by the beauty of San Francisco, she exclaimed "I have truly come home!" Eventually she became an American citizen, married Bill Crosby and moved to Marin. Meka worked for FM Global first in San Rafael, then San Francisco and finally in Walnut Creek until her retirement. She was an active and involved member of the Holy Innocents Episcopal Church. She loved golf and was a devoted 49er fan. Meka's beautiful blue eyes sparkled, her smile lit the room, her laughter was contagious and the aromas rising from her kitchen were tantalizing. "Her home", said her nephew Douglas, "was an oasis." She had a courage and toughness few possess. After a difficult day of chemotherapy or radiation she came home to a dollhouse she had picked up at a thrift shop. She decorated it with a joyful whimsy an élan. Someday she hoped a child, possibly a child with cancer would enjoy it. Meka's daughter Karin and husband Bill pre-deceased her. She is survived by her sister, three step children, her granddaughters Sophia and Claire Johnson, Son-in-law Brent Johnson and several nieces and nephews. Services are pending.

After a lifetime of devotion to country and family, he passed away surrounded by his loving wife, family, and friends. He was a long-time resident of Atherton, husband to prominent San Francisco trial attorney, Mary Alexander, for 32 years, proud father of Michelle Loftis, M.D., a pediatrician in Los Gatos, and grandfather of Ian and Lily Loftis of Menlo Park, CA. Born at Ft. Benning, GA, the son of a career Army officer and World War II veteran of the 11th Abn Division, Colonel Lyman S. Faulkner, Sr. and Jane Faulkner, Skip grew up in an Army family along with his three sisters, living in Berlin, Germany during the Cold War and Virginia while his dad worked at the Pentagon. His family settled in Corona del Mar, CA where he attended Corona del Mar High School and graduated in 1966. He was an avid swimmer, water polo player, and surfer. In September, 1967, Skip enlisted in the U.S. Army and became a second generation paratrooper. He was a superb combat infantry soldier and leader in the 101st, Airborne Division in Vietnam during very heavy fighting in A Shau Valley and the DMZ, 1968-1969. He spent his entire tour with the recon platoon of the 1st Bn, 506th Airborne Infantry.

They were married on December 1, 1984 at Valley Presbyterian Church in Portola Valley where they remained active members and graciously hosted the annual Church Christmas Party for 20+ years. Skip proudly supported Mary's law career and enjoyed attending legal events of the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) and American Association for Justice (AAJ), especially when Mary was President of both organizations. Upon retirement, Skip took on what he happily described as "the best job in the world...taking care of the grandkids". He was a devoted and doting grandfather who took Ian and Lily to and from school, attended every sports game and performance, and was an ever present figure in the Las Lomitas/La Entrada School and Menlo School communities. Known for his quick wit, kindness, and positive outlook, he brought joy and laughter to all who knew him. He enjoyed sailing, skiing, bar-b-quing, camping, and hiking. His laughter, warm smile, and kind spirit will be missed by many. He was preceded in death by his parents, Lyman and Jane Faulkner, and his sister, Judith Faulkner of Ashland, OR.
