RABBANI

Ruhiyyih Rabbani

Baha'is in Davis, as well as millions throughout the world, are mourning the death on Jan. 19, 2000, of Ruhiyyih Rabbani, widow of Shoghi Effendi Rabbani, the late head of the Baha'i Faith. She died peacefully after a long illness at the age of 89.

She provided the last living link with the family of Baha'u'llah, the founder of the Baha'i Faith. She married his great-grandson, Shoghi Effendi Rabbani, then head of the Baha'i Faith, in 1937, and went to live in Haifa, Israel, at the administrative center of the religion.

She worked as Rabbani's researcher, secretary, confidante and counselor, as he single-handedly guided the growing worldwide Baha'i community. Her vast correspondence and personal contacts, at once dignified and informal, endeared her to thousands of Baha'is.

A local Baha'i and resident of Davis, Diane Hill, lived in Haifa in the mid-1980s and had the opportunity to work with Mrs. Rabbani for 3 1/2 years. Hill recalls her Rabbani as being ``an extraordinary person who possessed wit and compassion and bestowed it amply upon all with whom she came in contact.''

Throughout her life, Mrs. Rabbani worked tirelessly for the realization of the oneness of humanity, focusing in particular on the environment and indigenous cultures. A film producer, poet and lecturer, Mrs. Rabbani also was a widely read author. Her biography of her husband, ``The Priceless Pearl,'' has appeared in many editions and many languages.

Mrs. Rabbani has been the pre-eminent member of the worldwide Baha'i community since the death of her husband in 1957. She was one of a group of nine who served as custodians of the Baha'i World Center until the election of the international governing body, the Universal House of Justice, in 1963.

Later in her life, Mrs. Rabbani traveled widely, crossing all continents and visiting 185 countries. She was received by many heads of state and government, including Prime Minister Indira Gandhi of India, Prince Philip of England and the Secretary General of the United Nations, Javier Perez de Cuellar.

A commemoration of her life will be held in Davis at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Adib Rowhani. Dr. Rowhani's cousin was under Mrs. Rabbani's employ for more than 20 years and shared many of his experiences in Haifa with family members here in Davis.

For more information on the commemoration event, call 757-6557.

RABIN

Daniel J. Rabin

Daniel J. Rabin of Fresno died in an auto accident on Jan. 9, 2004. He was 36.

He was born in Woodland on July 5, 1967, and grew up in Davis. He attended North Davis Elementary School, Emerson Junior High School and Sacramento Country Day School, and graduated from Davis High School in 1985.

He earned his bachelor's degree at California State University, Chico, where he met his wife Michelle. While at Chico he also volunteered at a battered women's shelter, participated in the Jewish Student Union and taught at a local Sunday school. He spent his junior year abroad in Israel, studying at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

After graduating from college, he worked in Sacramento for a year at the St. Patrick's Home for seriously emotionally disturbed adolescents. He went on to attend Chicago Medical School, from which he graduated in 1997. He received a grant from the National Health Service Corps and in return agreed to serve an underserved population. Recently he had decided to extend his term of service for an additional two years.

He took his residency in family practice in Fresno, as part of a University of California at San Francisco program. He became board-certified in family practice in 2000, when he joined Sequoia Community Health Centers in Fresno. He also served as a physician at Community Hospital in Oakhurst.

UCSF appointed him a preceptor to younger doctors and students, and he found this teaching role stimulating and rewarding. In the words of a colleague, Dr. Eric Kunkel, Rabin "exemplified what it means to be a doctor."

Dan loved the outdoors and often went camping and fishing with his family. He was an accomplished skier, and went skiing with his family only a week before he died. His family said he was a man of great energy and enthusiasm for life - a highly respected physician, a loving family man, a teacher, an outdoorsman, an active member of Beth Israel Temple in Fresno and a loyal friend to many.

Although his life was tragically cut short, he filled it with love of family and service to others.

He is survived by his wife, Michelle Rabin; their two children, Jacob, 7, and Eliana, 4; his parents, Jane and Edward Rabin of Davis; and his sister and brother-in-law, Rebecca and Robert Kaplan of Norfolk, Va., and Newton, Mass.

He also became a well-loved part of his wife's extended family, which included her grandmother Dorothy Meyers of Fresno; her mother and stepfather, Susan Meyers and Michael Oshan of Gilroy; her father and stepmother, Chester and Nancy Winton of Lincoln; her brother Jeffrey Winton of Santa Cruz; and many others.

A funeral was held in Fresno on Jan. 13.

A fund has been established for the benefit of his children, Jacob and Eliana. Contributions in Dan's memory may be sent to The Michelle Rabin Fund, c/o Fresno Jewish Day School, 6622 North Maroa, Fresno, CA 93704. Checks should be made payable to "The Michelle Rabin Fund."

Dallas Luella Ness Ramos

Dallas Luella Ness Ramos died on Dec. 29, 2003, at Sierra Health Care in Davis. She was 96.

She was born on March 23, 1907, to Magnus and Caspara Ness, in Madoc (Maddock?), N.D. After graduating high school, she attended college for a year. Then she and her sister, Bonnie, studied cosmetology in Minot, N.D. She worked for many years as a hair stylist, both in North Dakota and California.

She and her brother and four sisters all moved west. She worked as a hair stylist at the Senator Hotel in Sacramento from the 1920s through the 1940s.

In 1949 she married her beloved husband, Victor Ramos, and they bought a home in North Hollywood, close to where her husband was employed in the film industry. She never learned to drive a car, but she loved to walk - she walked every day until she passed her 96th birthday.

She loved people and people loved her, said her family, who called her "a bright and shining spirit" who was always kind, friendly and had a wonderful sense of humor. She adored wearing bright clothing and colorful jewelry, and there was nothing she liked more than getting a good purchase at a thrift shop. She was a hard worker, one who loved to be busy and to help others in any way she could.

After her husband's death in 1977, she traveled extensively. She took tours and cruises, and enjoyed seeing the world and meeting interesting people along the way. She always said that she never regretted her travels, and lived very frugally so that she was able to see the world.

She remained active all of her life, and took great pleasure in her friends and family. She was an avid scrapbooker, leaving a treasure trove of scrapbooks and photo albums for her family to enjoy.

In 1999 she moved from her house to Evergreen Retirement facility in Burbank. She continued to take her daily walks as well as play bingo. She was loved by everyone there, her family said.

After suffering a stroke in May 2003, she moved to Sierra Health Care to be near the families of her nephews, Richard Hayes and James Murphy. In the short time she lived in Davis, family members said she brightened their hearts as well as those of her friends and caregivers at Sierra Health Care.

She is survived by her stepson, Vic Ramos Jr., her nephew, Richard Hayes and his wife, Kathy, all of Davis, and three other nephews, James Murphy of Sacramento, Kenneth Murphy of Mexico, and Eugene Lang of South Dakota. She is also survived by many great nephews, nieces and cousins.

A private celebration of her life was planned for family and close friends.

RANSTROM

Jeffrey Karl Ranstrom

Jeffrey Karl Ranstrom of Davis died Tuesday, May 16, 2006, at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento. He was 45.

A celebration of his life will be held the afternoon of Aug. 20 at Lutheran Church of the Incarnation in Davis.

Ranstrom was born Aug. 20, 1960, in Ogden, Utah, the third son of Don and Roberta Ranstrom. He attended Davis Senior High School and graduated from UC Berkeley with a bachelor's degree in computer science. Artificial intelligence was his special interest.

In his junior and senior years at Cal, Ranstrom worked on the INGRESS project that revolutionized relational databases. He continued that work after graduation at Altos Computer Systems, and then was an early, key employee at Sybase. There he helped architect Sybase's first highly successful product. This was later sold to Microsoft; it is now known as “SQL Server.” In recent years, Ranstrom worked as a consultant for several small software companies.

In 1983, he married Julie Chen. They had one child, Eleanor, born in 1985. After an amicable divorce, Jeff and Julie maintained joint custody of Eleanor, who is now a Mills College student on extended study in New Zealand.

Ranstrom was an avid cyclist and windsurfer, a supporter of the San Francisco Symphony and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and an informed and articulate champion of progressive political causes and candidates.

In November 2003, he was diagnosed with a malignant and very aggressive brain tumor. He carefully researched the available treatment protocols and clinical trials, and entered a dendritic cell vaccine clinical trial at Cedars-Sinai Maxine Dunitz Cancer Center in Los Angeles.

Ranstrom's heroic struggle with brain cancer - including five craniotomies and three courses of radiation - was marked by several astounding rallies that offered hope for full recovery, only to be met by new setbacks. Through it all, he maintained his warmth and humor, positive outlook and delight in good friends, music, art and organic food.

Two years after his diagnosis, Ranstrom moved from his hilltop home in Berkeley to his parents' residence in Davis. There he was surrounded by family and friends until hospitalization at the UCD Med Center.

In addition to his daughter Eleanor, Ranstrom is survived by his parents, Don and Roberta Ranstrom of Davis; three brothers, Jon of Moraga, Tim of Davis and Greg of Bend, Ore.; and two sisters, Julie of Citrus Heights and Laurie of Davis. He had seven nieces and nephews.

Family members expressed gratitude for many expressions of support and sympathy as well as the skillful and loving care that Ranstrom received at Cedars-Sinai and at UCD Med Center. They urge that his commitment to progressive causes and finding a cure for brain cancer be carried forward by all those who remember him.

Gwendolyn Roper Ratliff died Sept. 22, 2001, in Apple Valley. Born Aug. 14, 1918, in Gunnison, Utah, to Simpson K. and Ella Jensen Roper, she was 83 years old.

She was a longtime resident of Davis, moving to Apple Valley when Alzheimer's disease prevented her from staying in her home.

She then taught in Dixon for many years while the family lived in Davis.

Most of her teaching career she taught kindergarten, which was a fitting occupation because of her love of children.

Her own children meant everything to her. She was very involved in everything her children did. When her grandchildren came along, she was a doting grandma who did all she could to be a part of their lives.

She is survived by her sons, Reagan S. Ratliff and his wife Cathy of Chicago, and William R. Ratliff and his wife Vicki of Ridgecrest; daughter, Kay Neilson and her husband Vern of Seattle; and sister, Gay Kaiser and her husband Beryl of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

RAVEED

Dvorah Raveed

Albuquerque resident Dvorah Raveed died on May 2, 2002, at the Valle Norte Caring Center in Albuquerque.

Born on Nov. 1, 1920, in Los Angeles to the late Sarah and Fred Busch, she was 81.

Known to a multitude of friends simply as "Dvorah," she lived in Yolo County for the better part of 40 years. In 1998, she moved to New Mexico to be near her daughter.

She was an ardent, lifelong Zionist. As a girl in the 1940s, she hitchhiked from California to New Jersey to participate in a model kibbutz program.

While in New Jersey, she met and married her husband. After several years in Baltimore, the couple went to Israel, where they lived for six years in kibbutz Ein Dor with their young son.

After the birth of their daughter, the family returned to the United States, and her husband began graduate studies at UC Davis.

Productive years followed for Dvorah. She was among the founders of the Jewish Fellowship of Davis, an informal group of about 10 families that eventually became Congregation Bet Haverim.

She organized a very successful art print lending program at the junior high school. She also worked in the anthropology and art departments at UCD, where, encouraged by the late Daniel Crowley, she developed a deep love for African art.

During this time the famous Margaret Mead came to speak at UCD; since nobody thought to entertain her, Dvorah arranged a "ladies' lunch" in her own home for some university women and a handful of Dvorah's friends to meet the important visitor.

She believed passionately in the equality of people, and supported movements championing human rights and peace. A proud Jew, she spoke of herself as "international."

In 1964, she helped her 12-year-old daughter arrange for a sale of local artists' work, in the back yard, to raise money for the Freedom Riders who were headed to the South in support of civil rights for blacks.

During a second residence in Israel from 1964 to 1967, she was an assistant teacher in Beersheva. Returning to California, she suffered injuries in an automobile accident that left her unable to walk unaided and with a speech impairment.

It was at this time that she began to do art work herself. She became a proficient sculptor and a very good Japanese brush artist. Over the years, she had several of her works exhibited.

She spent the rest of her life defying her disabilities, exercising and indomitable will to live positively and entertaining and encouraging others whom she always declared to be worse off than she was.

She was wonderfully funny, had a great sense of style and was fiercely independent.

She was preceded in death by her son, Sion Raveed.

She is survived by her daughter, Tayla Raveed, of Albuquerque; two sisters; a brother; and many friends and admirers.

A memorial gathering will take place in Davis at a later date.

RAVENTOS IV

Antolin Raventos IV

Antolin Raventos IV of El Macero, professor emeritus of radiology at UC Davis and founding chair of the department of radiology in the School of Medicine, died at the UCD Medical Center on Aug. 17, 2000, after a short illness. He was 75 years old.

Born in Wilmette, Ill., on June 3, 1925, he was the eldest son of E. Antolin Raventos III, a native Californian whose grandfather arrived in San Francisco from Barcelona in 1849, and of Juanita Gillespie, born in Indiana, whose grandfather, Dr. William Gillespie, came to the United States after qualifying in medicine at the University of Edinburgh.

Known to his family and friends as Rich, Dr. Raventos graduated from Lake View High School in Chicago in June 1941 and began pre-medical studies at Northwest University, Evanston. In 1943 he transferred to the University of Chicago, where he obtained his B.S. and in 1947 his M.D. World War II brought accelerated medical education and other special requirements, so that he spent 2 1/2 of his medical school years in the uniform of the U.S. Army.

After internship at Methodist Hospital, Iowa, and two years of radiology residency at Clifton Springs Sanitorium and Clinic, New York state, Dr. Raventos completed his residency training at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, where he also began his lifelong involvement in research. He was a graduate student in radiology at the University's Graduate School of Medicine, obtaining the degree of M.S.c (Med). He was certified by the American Board of Radiology in 1952.

From 1952 to 1954, Dr. Raventos served as a captain in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, assigned to the Department of Biophysics at the Army Medical Service Graduate School in Washington, D.C., as laboratory investigator in radiobiology. He took part in biomedical research operations at the atomic energy proving grounds in Nevada, in subhuman primate radiobiological research in Puerto Rico, and in germ-free animal studies.

After his Army service, he devoted his career to academic medicine: teaching and research in therapeutic radiology, clinical services for cancer patients, and research in radiobiology and radiological physics, with a special interest in radiation protection.

His career was influenced by the discovery of new and more powerful radiations, a world war followed by a cold war and international concern over the growing military applications of radiation, new modalities in the treatment of cancer, concern over the possible hazards of the diagnostic use of X-rays, and major changes in medical education and the delivery of health care. In the 1960s and 1970s he received substantial extramural funding from the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society for cancer research.

From 1954 to 1970, he served on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, attaining the rank of full professor of radiology in 1963. He was director of the Division of Radiation Therapy from 1961 to 1970 and was instrumental in establishing and recruiting the professional staff for a formal radiobiology program, one of the first in the country, in 1958.

From 1958 to 1961 he held a Senior Advanced Clinical Fellowship from the American Cancer Society, which included six months of sabbatical leave in the United Kingdom, France and Sweden, where the leading centers of excellence in radiation oncology were to be found at that time.

In 1970, at the invitation of Dean Tupper, he moved to Davis as the first chairman of the department of radiology in the new School of Medicine. Many of his colleagues at Penn viewed this as a leap of faith on his part, moving from the oldest medical school in the U.S. to a new school operating in a run-down county hospital with antique diagnostic radiology equipment, no radiation therapy equipment and no radiological physics or radiobiology support. The heights that the school and Medical Center have reached show that his enthusiasm and confidence were not misplaced; he was proud of his association with the early years.

He served as chair of the department from 1970 to 1977 and was a professor of radiology until his retirement in 1991. He was director of the radiation oncology program at the affiliated V.A. Hospital in Martinez from 1980 to 1992. He established the radiology residency program at UCDMC and later a radiation oncology residency program at V.A. Martinez.

He was active in major radiological and cancer societies and organizations throughout his career, belonging to 56 professional and national groups. He was a member of the Board of Chancellors of the American College of Radiology from 1964 to 1970, chairing the Commission on Radiological Units, Standards and Protection. He also served on the college's commissions on cancer, public health, radiological technology and radiation therapy, and served as chair and member of innumerable committees and task forces.

He served as associate editor of the Journal Cancer, published by the American Cancer Society, from 1965 to 1991. He was committed to improving the generally deplorable standard of medical writing; he organized seminars and courses on medical and scientific writing through the organizations to which he belonged. He was a member of the American Medical Writers Association and president of the California chapter from 1984 to 1986. In the late 1970s, jointly with the UC English department, he offered a course on scientific writing and was disappointed that a number of veterinarians who enrolled far exceeded the number of physicians.

His interest in language led him to spend a sabbatical year at UC Berkeley, as a candidate for an M.A. in English (linguistics). His many visits to the U.K. in retirement also enabled him to widen his knowledge of English dialects, from highland Scots to broad Gloucestershire, as spoken by his wife's extended family. He was the author of 100 scientific papers and book chapters.

A keen chess player, a voracious reader of fiction, history, science, biography and mystery stories, and a strong swimmer who enjoyed diving in the Bahamas and the West Indies during his East Coast years, he was also avid flyer. He was an instrument-rated pilot, went on to obtain a commercial license, and was for many years the proud owner of a twin-engine Piper Apache. He loved the ocean and the rocky coast around his Sonoma home, where he enjoyed many happy days of exploration with his wife and their Bengal cats.

In the words of one of his oldest friends and colleagues, he was a good man, an honest man, a gallant man and a gentle man, who will be missed by all who knew him, not least for his sense of humor. He was also a teacher of rare ability; many of his former residents are in leadership positions in radiation oncology throughout the country.

He is survived by his wife, Anne Gray, of El Macero; his sister, Jeslyn Bruse and her husband Burton of Crystal Lake, Ill; his niece, Dr. Carolyn Bruse of Waltham, Mass; his nephews, Henry Bruse of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., and William Bruse of Springfield, Ill; his great-nephew, Dr. David Arend of Natick, Mass.; his half-brothers, Dr. Peter Raventos of Springville and William Raventos of Pleasant Grove, Utah; and his half-sister, Helen Chapatte, of Cheyenne, Wyo.

In accordance with his wishes, no services will be held.

RAYMOND

Donna Wills Raymond

Donna Wills Raymond died April 22, 2006, at Sutter Davis Hospital due to complications from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Lou Gehrig's disease. She was 61.

Graveside services begin at 2 p.m. Friday at the Davis Cemetery, 820 Pole Line Road.

Born on May 18, 1944, in Tulare, she was a resident of Davis for 28 years. She was employed as a senior word processor with UC Davis for 20 years, first in the wildlife fisheries and biology department and later in the economics department, where she earned many performance awards.

A natural athlete, she placed nationally in the Junior Olympics in track and field while in junior high school. As an adult, she played soccer for 20 years and helped form the first girls' soccer league in Davis.

In high school, she also was a singer and a dancer in a small band whose members still play music today. Although she was very musically inclined and a strong singer, she was known for her show-stopping dance moves.

In the 1960s, she spent much of her time supporting the civil rights movement and working with terminal cancer patients. She had deep empathy for all living beings; she was both an animal lover and a nature lover. She loved spending time with her family and cats, enjoyed walking on nature paths and visiting bird sanctuaries and was an avid vacationer on the coast of California.

A vibrant storyteller, listener and friend to many, she will be greatly missed, her family says.

She is survived by her husband, Jan Raymond; her daughter, Dusty; and her son, Darren. Through the last years of her illness, she was cared for by many people, including Consuelo Boone and Ida Morrison, who brightened the last years of her life.
