FAIT

Eleanor Fait

Eleanor Fait, died in Folsom Wednesday, Oct. 9 2002, at age 93.

She was a native of Spokane, Wash.

She was the first Sacramento woman to enlist in the service during World War II, and became a member of the first WAC class. Her first assignment was as an aide to Col. Overa Culp Hobby, head of the WAC, in Washington, D.C.

She was stationed at Air Force Headquarters until 1945, when she was released by the military to the United Nations to work on the Disabled Persons Program in Frankfurt, Germany.

Ms. Fait was responsible for placing many families of disabled persons in the United States after the war.

She returned to Sacramento and worked in radio and television, producing the "Gene Nelson Show."

In the 1950s, after working at the public information office at McClellan Air Force, she joined the Sacramento office of U.S. Employment Service. While there, she advised the Older Worker Program, which was adopted nationwide to provide opportunities in employment for workers over 45 years of age.

She received widespread recognition for her accomplishments and after retiring in 1947 was appointed to the California Commission of Aging.

She was later employed by her brother, Harrison H. Fait, who operated an adobe brick plant on Howe Avenue, delivering bricks to building sites. This was not an usually activity for a woman who, as a teenager, hitchhiked throughout the United States and later repeated the trip on a motorcycle.

After retiring, she purchased a home in El Dorado Hills and became active in public affairs there and in Folsom.

She was a longtime friend of Ruth Ward of El Dorado Hills and aunt of Glenn Fait of Folsom.

Services are pending.

FELTON

John Garrett Felton, Jr.

John Garrett Felton Jr. died of complications from a stroke Sept. 19, 2003, surrounded by loved ones in his Davis home. He was 90.

He was born March 6, 1913, in Gloversville, N.Y. For a time his family lived in Charleston, S.C., but most of his childhood was spent in La Crosse, Wis. He had fond memories of climbing the bluffs there and of taking long weekend drives in the family's touring car.

As a boy, he was active in the YMCA and Boy Scouts. On his way to earning the rank of Eagle Scout, he became adept at semaphore and Morse code, skills that would serve him later in the U.S. Navy.

He studied electrical engineering at the University of Minnesota and later received a master's degree in stage lighting from the University of Iowa. While a student at Iowa, he fell in love with and married Winifred Gross of Yankton, S.D. Later, they both accepted positions at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa.

He joined the Navy after the United States entered World War II. He became a lieutenant and a communications officer on the staff of several admirals. He served on aircraft carriers in the Pacific Theater, including the USS Wasp and USS Franklin. When the Franklin was hit by a kamikaze, he led crews fighting the fires of aviation fuel and ammunitions. For his bravery and the wounds he suffered, he was awarded the Silver Star and Purple Heart.

Following the war, he moved his growing family to Colorado and then to Texas, where he began a long career in the industrial lighting division of the Sylvania Electric Co. He was active in his community, his church, the Masons and Shrine.

Felton and his wife, who met while studying theater arts, often attended concerts and the theater. He enjoyed classical music and opera and, until his tenor faded with age, he often sang in church choirs and men's clubs. He also liked to travel, and he and his wife enjoyed many cruises and trips to Europe.

Shortly after moving to Davis, in 1979, his wife was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. He spent the next 17 years caring for her. After her death, he continued traveling and attending his church. In his final years he enjoyed taking drives in the country, tending his rose garden, going to soccer games and spending time with family and friends. He prided himself on his independence and remained in his home until the end of his life.

He was preceded in death by his mother Myrtle and father John Sr., brother Sib, sisters Ginny and Edie, his wife Win and his son, Gary.

He is survived by daughter, Anne Sivley and her husband Leonard Sivley of Yorba Linda; son, Allen Felton and his wife Connie Melendy of Davis; grandsons, Mark Felton of Sacramento and Harry McCuistion and his wife Shirley McCuistion of Colorado Springs, Colo.; granddaughter, Abbie Felton of Kutztown, Pa.; dear friend and sister-in-law Marion Carlson of Davis; extended family members Sylvia Melendy and Suzanne Melendy of Davis; three great grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; and many loving friends and neighbors.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Davis Community Church, 412 C St.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to John Felton Memorial Fund, Davis Joint Unified School District (attention: Susie Hedrick), 526 B St., Davis CA 95616. The fund will be used to provide musical instruments to elementary school students in need.

Ellen Hudson Finley

Ellen Hudson Finley died peacefully at the age of 95 on March 1, 2006, at Sierra Healthcare Convalescent Hospital in Davis.

A memorial gathering will be held in Davis at 1 p.m. Sunday. For the location, call the family at 756-4996.

Born April 23, 1910, she was the oldest of five children of Wyoming sheep rancher Frank Hudson and his wife, Harriet. They lived in Lander, a small town in western Wyoming. She earned her bachelor's degree from the University of Wyoming and began her teaching career in a one-room schoolhouse at an isolated sheep ranch.

During World War II, she worked in both Cheyenne, Wyo., and Burbank, helping to assemble B-17 bombers. In Lander, Wyo., she married a traveling court reporter named Leslie Finley. They moved to Southern California, eventually settling in West Covina.

She continued teaching in California and was recognized as an accomplished reading teacher. Throughout her life, former students would recall what an impact she had on them. She had a special talent for pointing people in the right direction and she never raised her voice in anger.

She retired from teaching in 1975 and had a very fulfilling retirement, her family said. She became an accomplished china painter, resumed piano lessons, loved tending her rose garden, enjoyed bird watching and took up knitting.

Her family said she had a special love for Wyoming, the Wind River Mountains and the Tetons, where she hiked and camped. She enjoyed the beauty and solitude of the wide open country.

In 1991, she relocated to Northern California to be near her children. She moved to Davis in 1993 where she lived with her son Bruce and his family. She loved almost 10 years of helping her grandchildren, Tyler and Sarah Ellen, grow up.

Late in life she developed dementia. It took her memory, but it never took away her kindness toward people and her happy nature. During that time, she attended the Yolo Adult Day Health Center, which kept her active with art. She painted pictures, which were chosen for a special exhibition at the California state Capitol.

She also benefited from Citizens Who Care and was befriended by two volunteers, Vera Krom and Vicky Tousignant, who gave unselfishly of their time and love to Ellen for many years. She spent her last three years at Sierra Healthcare, where she was cared for by a dedicated and professional staff.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Leslie; her sisters, Dorothy and Doris; and her brother, Frank.

She is survived by two sons, Douglas of Hamburg, Germany; and Bruce and his wife Deborah of Davis; two grandchildren, Tyler and Sarah Ellen; and her brother and sister-in-law, Fred and Lily Hudson of Patterson.

* * * * * * *

AN AFFLICTED FAMILY - Two weeks since we announced the death of a daughter and son of Mr. and Mrs. Adam Fischer, residing near Winters, and to-day we have the regretful duty of announcing the death of yet another son of those

truly afflicted and bereaved parents. On the 22d of January, we paid the last tribute of respect to the remains of Ella, an interesting daughter, rising 10 years of age; and three days later a like tribute to the remains of Gustavus Arthur, an interesting youth just budding into manhood, at the age of 18, and on Wednesday last followed to the tomb Albert, another son, cut down at the age of 16. After so many years of tender and loving rearing, the heartfelt sympathy of parents and friends of suffering humanity will go forth to the parents so suddenly deprived of those, who they fondly hoped would be their stay and comfort while descending the shady side of life.
