SCHACHERBAUER

John Schacherbauer

Longtime Yolo County resident John Schacherbauer died June 22, 2003, at home, surrounded by friends and family. He was 72.

He was born Aug. 15, 1930, in Altoona, Penn., to Mary and George Schacherbauer. He joined the U.S. Air Force in January 1951 and was stationed at Travis Air Force Base.

In December 1954, he married Janis Jordan. The couple made their home in Vacaville until 1960, when the Schacherbauers moved to Davis as the new owners of the Standard station at 980 Olive Drive, later Johnny's Chevron. The business added a private towing service in 1963, and eventually became a AAA contract station with towing and auto repair that continue today at Johnny's Service Center.

When the gas station was removed and replaced by Caffino, the Schacherbauers opened a garage at another site on Olive Drive. Most recently, he was involved in planning a second location for Johnny's and overseeing other rental properties.

Schacherbauer and his wife moved to Woodland in 1991 to be near family. He soon took on a second career there as a Realtor with John Lynch and Associates.

Friends remember him as a giving person -- one area he donated time to was as a reserve police officer in Davis. Family members said they will remember him as a loving husband, family man and friend to people from all walks of life. They also said he was a quiet, caring person who encouraged others, was hard working and honest, and combined integrity, compassion and knowledge.

Schacherbauer is survived by his wife of 49 years, Janis; son Rick James and his wife Barbara; son John David and his wife Patty; son Robert Jordan and his wife Beverly; grandchildren Carlos Purvis, Michael James and Matthew, Megan, Michael Jordan, Ryan and Robert Schacherbauer; siblings George, Leo and MaryAnn, all of Pekin, Ill.; those he thought of as his adopted children: Jill Goodhart, Rick Magner, Karl Rudert, John McKnight, Joe Callori, among others; and close friends, including Floyd and Chris Richmond, Al and Margaret Rinaldo and Eulonda Nardiello.

A memorial service will begin at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at The Christian Church Disciples of Christ at 509 College St. in Woodland.

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made to the American Cancer Society, Yolo Hospice or a charity of the donor's choice.

A native of Breslau, Germany, he was born May 14, 1930. He studied both theology and literature, receiving his licentiate in theology from the University of Ottawa in 1959 and his doctorate from the department of Germanic languages and literatures at Princeton University in 1970.

He taught at Princeton from 1970-74, then at UC Berkeley from 1974-76 before joining the UCD department of German and Russian in 1976.

Schaeffer's dedication to his students received special recognition when he was presented with UCD's Outstanding Adviser Award in 1989 and Outstanding Mentor Award in 1996. A passionate teacher, he gave selflessly of his time, electing yearly to teach, on an overload basis, courses in religious studies, classic and medieval studies, in addition to his course load in German, a colleague said.

He was also an accomplished pianist who offered annual concerts on the UCD campus. He often treated his students, friends and colleagues to his playing in his Davis home.

He is survived by his wife Maria Kallai, sisters Susanne Manovill and Irene Stockton, sons Stephen and Raymond Kallai and their families, nephews David and Philip Manovill and their families, and nieces Jessica and Carlisle and their families.

SCHELEN

Margaret "Maggie" Schelen

Margaret "Maggie" Schelen, a longtime activist in and around Yolo County, died in her sleep at her home in Sacramento on Nov. 12, 2003, of renal and congestive heart failure. She was 85.

She was born Margaret Ring in Philadelphia on Aug. 21, 1919. Her family moved to Los Angeles, where she grew up, two months later.

She married Robert Edward Schelen in 1941. He was serving in the South Pacific during World War II; she was working the graveyard shift at an airplane factory. After the war, she worked as a dental assistant and her husband became a Pasadena police officer. In 1958 she was widowed with two young children.

She was active in public affairs throughout her life -- an interest she inherited from her father, a founding member of the Ladies Garment Worker's Union.

She worked for Assemblyman Jesse M. Unruh from 1965 to 1970 in Inglewood. After he lost his bid for the govenorship, she moved to Sacramento to work for Assemblyman David Pierson.

In 1973 she took a job for what later became the Speaker's Office of Majority Services. She worked there under Assembly Speakers Bob Moretti, Leo McCarthy and Willie Brown until 1984.

She then began coordinating special projects work in the district office of Rep. Vic Fazio -- often working with Yolo County residents -- until the congressman retired in 1999. From 1999 until her death, she worked on special projects for Assemblyman Darrell Steinberg.

She was a member of Citizens for Better Government. In the 1980s she served on the Sacramento County Mental Health Board and played a role in the creation of the Fruitridge Community Center. In the early 1990s, Fazio appointed her delegate to the White House Conference on Aging.

She volunteered often for a variety of humanitarian and civic causes until recently breaking her hip. She worked as a greeter at many events, including political ones, earning the nickname "Maggie at the Door."

She was a recipient of several awards for her activism, among them the Lawrence O'Brien National Democrat of the Year Award, the Harry S. Truman "Give 'Em Hell, Harry" Democrat of the Year Award, the Sacramento County Democratic Central Committee's Democrat of the Year Award, and the 9th Assembly District Woman of the Year.

Her son, Davis activist Bob Schelen, said his mother was a valued mentor to many people in and out of public life. It was a statement to his mother's kind and loving nature that she maintained lifelong friendships with people, he said, no matter what political sides they took.

Frank Rigani, a former co-worker, donated $10,000 to help create the Maggie Schelen Public Service Scholarship at the King Hall School of Law at UC Davis. The scholarship is awarded annually to a student who exemplifies her public service.

She is survived by her sister, Grace Johnston of Arcadia; daughter, Delilah Schelen of Sacramento; and son, Robert Charles Schelen of Davis.

A celebration of her life will be held Thursday, Dec. 18, at 1 p.m. in the Jesse M. Unruh Room (No. 4202) at the state Capitol in Sacramento.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to The Maggie Schelen Scholarship Fund care of the UCD Law School, 400 Mrak Hall Drive, Davis, CA 95616; Loaves and Fishes, P.O. Box 2161, Sacramento, CA 95812; or St. James Armenian Church, 3240 B St., Sacramento, CA 95816.

SCHERCK

Beatrice Darnell Scherck

Beatrice Darnell Scherck, a longtime resident of Davis, died peacefully on Nov. 25, 2005, at Sierra Healthcare, where she had been living since 2003. The oldest of six children, she survived them all, living to the age of 102.

A service to celebrate her life is on Sunday from 1:45 to 3:30 p.m. at the Fellowship Hall of Davis Lutheran Church, 317 E. Eighth St.

Born in Medford, N.J., on Aug. 23, 1903, to parents who were members of the Religious Society of Friends, and having married twice before, Beatrice May Darnell came to visit her sister in 1940 and married Byron Edwin Scherck later that year. She and Byron had one child, Gary Richard.

The family lived in several Central Valley towns and moved to Davis in 1956 following her mother's death. She and Byron divorced in 1966.

Her family says she lived fully to the very last days of her life, when she succumbed to the complications of congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Only hours before she lapsed into a coma, she had made plans to travel to Vacaville to have Thanksgiving dinner with her nephew and her son.

She loved to travel, hated to cook, rode her bicycle until she was 92, collected teddy bears (and other more dubious “treasures”), was a formidable bridge and Scrabble player, and was always looking for a bargain.

She is survived by her son, who now goes by the name of Mikos Scherck Fabersunne of Davis; her daughter-in-law, Gayle Cribb, and two grandchildren, Camila and Mateo Cribb Fabersunne, of Dixon; a niece, Miriam of Costa Rica; and two nephews, Aaron of New Mexico and Richard of Vacaville.

She is further survived by members of her Friday afternoon bridge group and several Scrabble opponents.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her name may be made to the Davis Community Meals Program, P.O. Box 72463, Davis CA 95617.

SCHIMMEL

Arie Schimmel

Arie Schimmel died on April 28, 2003, at the Sacramento home of his daughter, Ardys Schimmel, with his wife of 63 years and other family members at his bedside. He was 88 years old. The cause of his death was congestive heart failure.

Born on Aug. 20, 1914, on a farm southeast of Sioux Center, Iowa, he was the son of Albert and Dena (Vermeer) Schimmel. He graduated from rural school in 1928 and began farming with his father. In 1933 he moved with his parents to a farm two miles southeast of Sioux Center, where he lived for the next 43 years.

On June 8, 1939, he married Magdalene Scheffer in the Carmel Reformed Church.

The couple moved to a home on acreage on his parent's farm near Sioux Center. In 1951 his family exchanged homes with his parents and he and his wife lived there until 1976, when they moved to Sioux Center. In 1993 they moved to Davis, to be near family. They resided here until March 2003, when they moved to The Atrium retirement home in Carmichael.

After marrying, Arie owned and operated corn shellers and farmed with his father. He also operated a threshing machine for Wandscheer Brothers for a number of years. In 1944, he sold his corn shellers, expanded his farming operation, and started milking, developing a purebred Aryshire dairy herd. After selling his herd in 1959, he expanded his cattle and hog operation. He retired from daily farming when he moved to Sioux Center.

During his years of farming, he was active in the Farm Bureau. On two different occasions, his family hosted International Farm Youth exchange students: the first, Kees Perdock from the Netherlands, spent a year with the Schimmel family in 1954 and 1955; the second, Gopal Krishna, spent the summer of 1958.

Arie became a 4-H club leader in 1950. He was a member of the Sioux County Youth Fair board and was its president during its years of expansion and a move to a new site. From 1958 to 1983, he was a salesman for DeKalb seed corn.

In 1974 he was appointed to the Sioux County Board of Supervisors, filling a vacancy. He was elected in successive elections until retiring in 1992, serving as board chairman for many years.

In his free time he played and managed for softball teams, and he liked to hunt and fish. An active sports fan, he followed the Sioux Center High School and Northwestern College athletic teams. After moving to California, he became an avid San Francisco Giants and 49ers fan, as well as a Sacramento Kings supporter. He enjoyed family gatherings, and he was exceedingly fond of his grandchildren.

An active member of the First Reformed Church in Sioux Center until 1990, he and his wife then helped organize Sioux Center's New Life Reformed Church. In Davis, he joined the Davis Community Church. At his death, his membership was being transferred to Christ Community Church in Carmichael.

He is survived by his wife and his four children, Allan of Philadelphia, Pa.; Leon of Davis; Ardys of Sacramento; and Nancy of Salem, Ore. He is also survived by 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his sister, Harriet W. Vermeer.

In accordance with his wishes, his body was cremated upon his death.

A memorial service will be held at Christ Community Church on Saturday, June 14, at 10:30 a.m. The family requests that contributions, in lieu of flowers, be made in his name to the New Life Reformed Church in Sioux Center.

SCHNEIDER

Judy Schneider

Longtime Davis resident Judy Schneider died March 15, 2005, in Davis. She was 78 years old.

A memorial service will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 26, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Road.

Born in Syracuse, N.Y., in 1926, she grew up in Hollywood where her mother worked for Universal Studios as an executive assistant and assistant producer. Her father was head of foreign film distribution at RKO.

When she was 5, while on a boat ride to Catalina Island with her mother, they became separated. Her mother was astonished to find her daughter dancing on the deck with fellow passenger Clark Gable. As a teenager, she baby-sat for neighbor Frank Sinatra's daughter, Nancy. She remembered Sinatra singing his baby daughter to sleep before departing for the evening.

She attended UCLA and graduated from UC Berkeley with a bachelor's degree in English in 1947. Following graduation, she worked in the advertising department of the Oakland Post Enquirer. She then worked for Robert Sproul, president of UC Berkeley, doing research and writing.

In 1950, she married Irving Robert Schneider, a plant virologist. They moved to Urbana, Ill., and then to Silver Spring, Md., where she was an active volunteer with the League of Women Voters and the Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring. She worked for equal opportunity housing and, as a result of her opposition to the Vietnam War, participated in many anti-war marches with fellow members of the Unitarian Church.

She received a master's degree in library science from the University of Maryland in 1970. As part of her graduate school experience, she catalogued a rare book collection at the John Innes Institute in Norwich, England, a center for botanical research. She was a librarian at the National Parks and Conservation Association in Washington, D.C., and the Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission in Silver Spring.

Following her husband's retirement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Beltsville, Md., he was awarded a scientific research fellowship at UC Davis, where they moved in 1979. She volunteered in the library at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis and at the UC Davis Arboretum, where she worked as a docent. Giving tours of the section of California native plants was a favorite of hers. She received a volunteer of the year award in 1995 for her work in the Arboretum.

She was remembered as an accomplished seamstress who made many of her own skirts and dresses, as well as clothes for her husband and daughter. She also was described as an excellent cook. The family remembers her full talents being unleashed at Christmas, with homemade ornaments and decorations, as well as pannetone, biscotti, shortbread, pfefferneuse and stollen.

Her family says she enjoyed taking classes in folk dancing and exercise, and was an enthusiastic traveler. She often took continuing education courses in art history at UC Davis. Among her favorites was a class taught by Wayne Thiebaud. After her husband's death, she continued to travel, journeying to Japan, China, Costa Rica, the Galapagos, Italy and Turkey.

Following her diagnosis with atypical Parkinson's syndrome in 2000, she moved to the University Retirement Community, where she continued her interests through reading and impressed many with her intellectual curiosity, humor and interest in other people.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Irving Robert Schneider, in 1988.

She is survived by her daughter, Karen Schneider of Washington, D.C.; and a brother, Del Reisman of Los Angeles.

Contributions in her memory can be made to Yolo Hospice and the UC Davis Arboretum.

Born in San Francisco in 1913, he was a descendant of pioneer California families that arrived in San Francisco in 1857.

His maternal great-grandfather, John Currey, was an attorney who defended the legality of the Vaca-Pena land grant and was given 5,000 acres as payment for his services. He eventually became chief justice of the California Supreme Court, and the land has remained in the family.

His paternal great-grandfather, Oscar C.

He had the buildings demolished and donated the land to the city for a park and library.

He married Barbara Buckley in 1939, and they moved to Dixon, where he developed the family property from dry land pasture into a highly productive row crop farm.

He was a member of many farm-related organizations and spent years as a commodity trading member of the Chicago Board of Trade. He also loved the 18 years he spent as a member of the board of directors for First Northern Bank of Dixon.

She had a sprightly, luminous personality that shed a warm and cordial light on the family she adored and everyone who knew her. Her decorated envelopes and signature heart stickers will be missed by all. Life reflected her own words, "How I wish I could stay longer, but boy, didn't we have fun?"

Her family has been comforted by the letters and telephone calls from friends.

SCOTT

Elsie Jean Scott

Elsie Jean Scott, a former Davis resident, died in her sleep at Saylor Lane Nursing Center in Sacramento on Nov. 15, 2003, of respiratory failure and complications from Parkinson's disease. She was 97.

She was born Elsie Garson in Guelph, Ontario, on Aug. 6, 1906, the first child of W.A. and Agnes Garson. Her family later immigrated to Buffalo, Wyo., where she grew up and, in 1925, graduated high school.

A woman of fiercely independent spirit, her family said that when she was in her 20s she earned money to support her dream of attending college by teaching in what were called "normal schools" -- rugged, isolated one-room schools such as Gilbertson, Wallow Creek and the 41 Ranch in Johnson County, Wyo.

She served a term as Johnson County superintendent of schools before graduating from the University of Wyoming in 1938. She also attended Iowa State University and Claremont College.

She married Frank W. Scott in 1941. They lived on their cattle ranch and wheat farm north of Fort Laramie, Wyo.

She continued teaching in the Lingle, Wyo., and Fort Laramie schools until 1974, when the couple retired and moved to Davis to be close to their son and grandchildren. She was widowed in 1977.

In addition to her lifelong commitment to education, she was active in Wyoming's agricultural extension service, including many years of 4-H leadership. She also served a term as president of the Wyoming Home Demonstration Council, during which she was a U.S. delegate to the International Association of Country Women of the World conference in what was then Ceylon.

During her years here, she was involved in the Davis Camera Club and the Presbyterian Women's Circle, various volunteer activities and caring for her grandchildren. She was a Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes winner in 1987 -- and the "winners' weekend" events in New York City were among of her life's highlights.

Her deteriorating health necessitated a move to assisted living in Sacramento's Trinity House in 1989. Though physically incapacitated for many years, her family said, she remained alert and aware until the end.

She is survived by her sister, Aileen Garson Kuzara of San Jose; son, F. Eugene Scott and his wife Susan of Sacramento; grandson, Torry Christian Scott of Austin, Texas; granddaughter, Erena Scott Zerger of Minneapolis; and four great-grandsons.

A private family service is planned and her cremated remains will be interred in Fort Laramie.
