ROACH

James F. Roach

Retired Yolo County Superior Court Judge, wounded Marine Corps combat veteran and licensed pilot James Francis Roach died of an Alzheimer's disease-related illness on April 27, 2002, at the University Retirement Community in Davis. A longtime Yolo County resident, he was 79.

He was born on Sept. 7, 1922, in Sacramento to Mike Roach, a Signal Oil Co. dealer, and the former Ann Crothers, a school teacher.

After graduating from Woodland High School in 1940, he enrolled at Modesto Junior College, where he joined the track team and ran the 100-yard dash in 9.9 seconds.

According to his wife, Patricia Bender Roach, the track team called him "twinkle toes."

The couple were high school sweethearts, and married in October 1941, shortly before the United States was drawn into World War II.

He enrolled in UC Berkeley's Navy wartime V-12 program. He received his degree in political science in October 1943, and was then assigned to the 1st Marine Division and sent to Okinawa.

While in Okinawa, he was a first lieutenant and platoon leader in what was described as Last Bloody Battle-Okinawa.

Roach was wounded on May 2, 1945, and according to documents provided by his wife, he was rescued by hospital corpsman Robert E. Bush, who was awarded the Medal of Honor by Congress for his bravery.

His medical discharge from the service came in time for him to enroll in Stanford University Law School in January 1946.

After receiving his law degree, Roach returned to Woodland, where he served as deputy district attorney for Yolo County District Attorney E.L. "Les" Means, who describes him as "an aggressive prosecutor and a fine lawyer."

He ran unsuccessfully for district attorney in 1954 against Anthony B. Avilla, and as a result entered private practice with Ervin Vaughan and Clint Murphy.

Roach owned several planes after receiving his pilot's license in late 1958. He flew family, clients and friends to Stanford University football games, Disneyland, Mexico and other destinations. He gave up flying after becoming a judge, because he said being a judge did not allow him time for flying.

Clarence B. "Buzz" Walden, a retired Municipal Court judge who gave him his first flying instructions in September 1958, remembers him as a good student and pilot.

Roach belonged to the Yolo Fliers Club, the state Bar Association, the Woodland Jaycees and E Clampus Vitus, a Gold Rush era historical society.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his son, Brian C. Roach and his wife Rosemary of Davis; daughters Eileen Roach of Davis and Ann Montgomery and husband Buddy of Los Angeles; brother Michael "Larry" Roach of Rocklin; and granddaughters Frances Morrison and Emily, Maureen and Laura Roach, all of Davis, and Nola Schneider of Saratoga.

The family requests that any remembrances be sent to the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center, 150 Muir Road, Martinez, CA 94553, or to Yolo Hospice, 607 Main St., Woodland, CA 95695.

A memorial service will begin at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in the auditorium of the University Retirement Community, 1515 Shasta Drive, Davis.

North Sacramento Funeral is assisting the family with arrangements.

David was a lover of conversation with lots of interesting stories to relate. He was a hardworking man who loved the Lord, his family and was very loving, compassionate, considerate, kind and had a great sense of humor. His laughter was contagious and made you want to share that special moment. He found great satisfaction from his many home projects that he started and finished. He could take a piece of wood, cut, grind and whittle and turn it into a beautiful bird, dolphin, horse or cow. He used his talents with wood in numerous ways that brought beauty and creativity to life. He loved working with heavy-duty equipment as well.

All who knew him and especially his family who loved him so very much will miss David. Those quiet talks with him will also be missed.

RODNING

Carol Janice Rodning

Carol Janice Rodning died in Davis on Jan. 27, 2005, at age 56.

Friends are invited to a memorial service for her at 4 p.m. on Tuesday at St. Martin's Episcopal Church, 640 Hawthorn Lane in Davis.

Born in and raised near Minneapolis, she earned a bachelor of arts degree from Gustavus Adolphus College, a master's degree from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. in human development from UCLA. After spending several years in education and on the faculty at UCLA, she joined the UC Davis faculty in 1992 in the department of human and community development.

In addition to her teaching and research responsibilities at UCD, she filled the position of director of the Center for Child and Family Studies. She believed that the CCFS was her greatest professional achievement at UCD.

She had joined the faculty with a strong research and teaching background and while she received high praise as an instructor, it was not achieved at the expense of intellectual challenge or scholarly rigor. She had a gift for bringing people together in ways that led to fruitful collaborations and thus, under her leadership, the CCFS became an innovative model for interdisciplinary and collaborative research with a strong theoretical foundation in the area of parent-child attachment. It also gained a reputation for its successful integration of academic research, teaching and community outreach.

She innovated throughout her tenure as the director of CCFS. Among her other achievements, she was a major contributor to the establishment of CCFS programs designed to facilitate the sensory-motor development of infants and toddlers and the mainstreaming of special needs children. She authored a grant and received funding to develop a behavioral science computer laboratory at the center. She also was an intellectual leader who promoted the establishment of a separate university institution designed to provide children and their parents a safe and neutral place to develop healthy and secure relationships. Her vision became a reality on May 12, when with the support and effort of Donis and Erwin Eichhorn, the University Family House was opened near the CCFS.

Outside of her professional and academic achievements, she was an active member of St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Davis and served as a lay Eucharistic minister. She also was a gifted quilter and enjoyed creating quilts for her family and friends. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, daughter and friend, and will be dearly missed.

She is survived by her children, Kari Munro and her husband Devon Munro of Fincastle, Va.; Annelise Lucas and her husband Donald of Charlottesville, Va.; Paul Otteson of Northfield, Minn.; her father, Selmer Rodning, and his wife, Inez Rodning, both of Sun City, Ariz.; her sister, Carla Rodning of Davis; her brother, Charles Rodning and his wife Mary, both of Semmes, Ala.; and her grandchildren -- Dane Chandler, Logan Lucas and Jorun Lucas.

She wished that any donations offered in her memory be made to St. Martin's Episcopal Church or to Yolo Hospice in Davis.

A Ventura County pioneer, she was born Nov. 23, 1904, in Simi. One of Joseph and Gertrude Horner's six children, she grew up on a apricot ranch.

She prided herself on her flower garden, volunteered with a hospital auxiliary and enjoyed trips with friends to Europe and Asia. In July 1998, after living there for 70 years, she left her home and moved to Covell Gardens in Davis to be near family.
