Ruby Spaulding Ely

Death Claims Mrs. Elmo Ely

The community was deeply grieved Monday when it was learned that Mrs. Ruby Ely had passed away that morning. It was generally known that for several days Death hovered near, but where life is young and vista of many happy years is unrolled before hope dies hard, and there was hope. There was hope that the virility of youth, combined with an unfaltering spirit might pull even the steepest grade, but it was not to be, so another spirit is added to the heavenly host.

Mrs. Ely had not been well since a girl, having an affliction of the heart. The portals of eternity were ajar for her two years ago, but hers was a brave and courageous conflict and she won, but with health still further impaired. Her last illness was of several weeks' duration and from the first those close to her feared the worst, but lived in hopes. Ruby was 24 years, 6 months and 8 days at her death.

Mrs. Ruby Spaulding Ely was the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S.H. Hoy, highly esteemed pioneer residents of Winters. She was born in Winters, schooled in the Winters schools, was known and loved by all. She was married six years ago to Elmo Ely, a scion of the loved and revered Uncle Ben Ely, pioneer settler from Missouri. To them was born one son, Robert Elmo, nearing five years of age, who survives, with her parents, two sisters, Mrs. W.R. Chapman, Mrs. Rita Luft, two brothers, Will and Ben, all of Winters. Her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. J.P. Stewart, octogenarians, also survive.

Funeral services were held from the home of Mrs. Chapman Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. There was one of the largest turnouts from the countryside of and funeral ever held here, and the floral tributes of loving friends were elegant and innumerable. Ross C. Wilson had charge of the arrangements. Rev. H. H. Wilson of the Christian church spoke words of comfort to the sorrowing and held out the hope of a reunion over there. Song service was rendered Mrs. E.W. Fisher at the piano and Mrs. R.E. Baker, Miss Lulu Wyatt, Mr. F.E. Wilson and Mr. E.W. Fisher. The casket bearers were Everett Sidwell, Henry Johnston, Ted Engelhart, Frank Englehart, Craig Niemann and Lloyd Green.

Born June 7, 1920, in Portal, N.D., she was the second of five children of Eva and Donald McArthur. After high school graduation, she attended North Dakota State University, where she met her future husband, John Emo.

She taught first through fourth grades for two years, then married and moved around the United States with John, who was in the U.S. Army. They eventually settled in California, first in Visalia. In 1962, the family moved to Davis, then in 1985, the couple retired to the coastal paradise of Cayucos.

She found great joy and satisfaction in being a devoted mother, grandmother and homemaker. In addition, she excelled in numerous other areas: faithful and committed service in her church, with a special concern for missions; gracious, artistic hospitality, extending to people from around the world; and strong leadership in PTA, 4-H youth clubs and political and community organizations.

She also returned to a career in the registrar's department at UC Davis before her retirement.

She had a strong work ethic and Scottish stubborn determination. Her family and friends delighted in her warmth and quick, playful wit.

“Unconditional, Christ-like love was the essence of June's nature and personality, and blessed every relationship of her life,” her family says. “It was her spirit of love and sincere concern for others, joined with a very giving heart, that characterized her long life.”

She is survived by four children, nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

ESPIGARES

Joseph Espigares, Jr. (1st of 2 obituaries)

Joe Espigares Jr. died peacefully at the Woodland Memorial Hospital after a lengthy illness, surrounded by his family Monday, Jan. 31 at age 87.

Joe was born Dec. 26, 1917 in Yolo to the late Pilar (Funes) and Jose Espigares, who immigrated to the United States from Granada, Spain. He attended Cacheville Elementary School and graduated from Woodland High School in 1937. He served in the U.S. Army Signal Corps during World War II. He was a bookkeeper for Motroni Heard Lumber Co. for more than 20 years and at 45 years of age he began working at Equitable Life Insurance, fully retiring in 2003.

Joe was a life member of the Elks, Lions, Knights of Columbus and Eagles clubs. He was involved in the Iberico de Espana, Couples Club, school PTA, the Housing Authority, chairman of the Chamber of Commerce, foreman of the grand jury, board of directors of Heart Federal Bank, County Supervisor for two terms and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1997. Joe served on the Woodland Parks and Recreation and was a booster of all youth sports throughout his life. He was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church.

Joe started the Yolo Athletic Club and was the Club's only manager in basketball and baseball prior to World War II. Joe played with the Woodland Acorns and Oaks before turning to softball. Joe played with Spreckles Sugar, American Legion and Knights of Columbus.

Joe was involved in the American Legion Yolo Post 77 baseball program since 1948. He was the committee chairman until the 1980s and remained active on the committee. Joe served two terms on the State Legion Baseball Commission.

Joe was very vociferous and severe with the umpires. The umpires for Yolo Post 77's games were from Sacramento as were the teams they played. Joe's favorite place was behind home plate closest to the umpires. Joe's favorite partner was the late Don Urain.

One experience was when Joe lined up a 9-inning practice game for Yolo Post 77. He asked Bob Carston, who at the time was his son-in-law, if he would donate his time to umpire behind the plate. Bob said OK. By the start of the third inning, Joe heckled and was so vociferous at Bob, that Bob called a time out. Bob walked to the backstop and told Joe if he heard one more word out of him, he would walk off the field and Joe could finish the game behind the plate. That was the first time in Yolo Post 77 history, that the fans at Clark Field never heard another word from Joe Espigares for seven complete innings.

In later years, Joe's favorite pastime was playing pinochle at the American Legion every afternoon. Joe had a great passion for baseball, attending Giants' spring training games, was a faithful 49'er fan and enjoyed his vacations in Santa Cruz was a valued walking partner to his dear friend Fred McGrew.

He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Joe was always willing to do any task at hand for family and friends alike. Joe enjoyed life to its fullest. Above all, Joe was a true American and very proud of his country.

Joe is survived by his wife of 23 years, Lois Espigares of Woodland; his daughters, Nancy Damman and her husband Larry of Vacaville, Linda Jo Flippo and her husband Tom; his stepdaughter, Liz Nakagaki and her husband Jerry all of Woodland; his grandchildren, Kenneth Joseph Carston and his wife Kim and DeLaney Martin; his stepgrandchildren, Ellen, Alex and Erin Hildebrand; his great-grandson, Koen Joseph Carston and his sisters, Pearl Nunez, Sally Botts and Carrie Alberigi all of Woodland. He was preceded in death by his first wife, Nieves Espigares; his parents, Pilar and Jose Espigares and his brothers and sisters, Placida Garcia, John Espigares, Ralph Espigares, Josephine Fernandez, Connie Barrios and Dolores Garrido.

The family requests memorials in Joe's name be directed to the Tyson Miller Scholarship Fund, American Legion Yolo Post 77 or to the charity of the donor's choice.

Visitation is scheduled for 1 to 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 6 at McNary's Chapel, 458 College St., Woodland. A vigil will follow at 4:30 p.m. at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 301 Walnut St., Woodland. A funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 7 at Holy Rosary. Entombment will be at St. Joseph's Mausoleum. McNary's Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements.

There will never be another Joe Espigares and he will be heartfully missed by everyone he knew. May he rest in peace.
