Senior, Barbara Louise  
Barbara Louise Senior Formerly of San Mateo On Sunday, March 1, Barbara Louise Senior; known to her friends as "Bobbe", passed away in her home in Nevada City. Bobbe was 88 years young. Born in San Francisco in 1926, her birth mother loved her so much, she gave her up for adoption to a wonderful Christian couple who lived in Berkeley, CA. Bobbe grew up an only child, with her loving parents Martin and Esther Boyd. Music was her gift and she took lessons in piano, mandolin and voice. In 1945 she married a handsome sailor in the US Navy; William Senior, and together they raised two beautiful daughters in San Mateo, CA. Bobbe and her family joined the First Presbyterian Church of San Mateo, where she shared her love of Jesus by ministering through her musical gifts. She started a children's choral program, instituted a handbell program, and sang in the adult choir. Bobbe taught private piano lessons at home, and worked part time in the fabric department at the local Macy's department store. Somehow, she also found time to sew and quilt. By 1970, both daughters had married, and she and Billy were blessed with two grandchildren that they helped raise. Through the devastating onset of Multiple Sclerosis in the mid 1970's, and the unexpected loss of her eldest daughter, Bobbe held tightly to her relationship with Jesus, and He faithfully walked beside her. She passed her love of music on to her family as well as many others she planted seeds in. She had so much music in her heart from the Lord and she sang with her family for as long as she could. Often during family bluegrass gospel "jam sessions" she would join banjos and guitars, accompanying the group on the piano. In 2003, Bobbe and Billy moved to Nevada City to be next door to their daughter. Sierra Presbyterian became their church home, and they attended as often as they were able. Bobbe's love for music continues on through her grandchildren. She joins in heaven; her husband Billy and daughter Kathleen. She will be dearly missed by her daughter, Linda Steel (Jonathan), Buddy Walker, grandchildren: Gordon, Rebecca, Sarah, Melissa, Jennifer and Heather; 17 great-grandchildren; 3 great, great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews whom she held very dear, as well as Carol; a very special caregiver. Services will be held at Sierra Presbyterian Church in Nevada City on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at 1:00 p.m.

Sereda, John Anthony  
John Anthony Sereda Nov.8,1930-Feb.21,2015 Resident of Castro Valley John Anthony Sereda, long time resident of Castro Valley, passed away on Saturday, February 21, 2015 at home. His final weeks were surrounded by his family, all making sure he was cared for and loved. John, a full Czechoslovakia, is adamant we celebrate his life with good Italian food and lots of wine. Go figure. John was born in Chicago, Illinois on November 8, 1930 to Emil James and Anna Marie Sereda. Coincidentally, his twin, Al, came along minutes later. In 1945, his family, now the size of ten, piled into his parents Hudson and journeyed to California for a better life. His dad was determined to get there, so restroom breaks were often times limited to jars in the car. For over three decades, John diligently worked for Prudential Life Insurance. His work ethics earned him the nickname "Honest John", and created quite a list of followers who entrusted him with lifelong financial decisions. For all who knew John, he truly was a carpenter at heart, and nothing gave him greater joy than to figure out how to build something. He strategized in his dreams how, what, when, where, why something could be built efficiently sound. During his free time, 'IT' was created carefully and methodically. His house was his biggest project. It took him 59 years to build it into the house it is today, and to John, it was still a work in progress. His children were given contraptions such as 'The Magic Box, Go-cart' and a backyard playground, where the Sereda house was the place to play. Throughout his life, John was a family man and all knew he loved them unconditionally. His love and devotion to his wife, children and grandchildren were reciprocated. John leaves behind Barbara, his wife of 37 years. During their time together, they traveled the world including such places as Italy, France, England, Alaska and Prague. They both loved each other very deeply and it was obvious to anyone who knew them. John is preceded in death by his sons, Steve Sereda and Cary Roberson. He is survived by his children, Ann Sereda Taylor, Tom Sereda, Greg Roberson, Jan Roberson and Lynn Railsback. John was a greatly loved man and his loss will be felt by all. He will be clearly missed. His job now is to have a blast with his sons, Steven and Cary, and all others who waited for him with open arms on the other side. Also, to keep living on in all of us who truly are better people because of John Anthony Sereda.
