SEARS

Fielding Thomas Sears

(Following are two separate obituaries for Ray Fielding Sears, both with additional information.)

"Winters Express," Winters, California, Thursday, July 2, 1992, pg. 3:

Granddaughter writes about longtime Winters resident

Our grandfather, Ray Fielding Sears, died June 23, 1992. While we grieve for him, we remember what a wonderful man he was with a great sense of humor that touched many people. Having lived to 102, he lived through many generations of changes in our society: the automobile, the 1906 earthquake, men going to the moon, all the wars since and all our new technology that must have seemed to alien to him.

Grandpa's parents' families were longtime residents of Yolo County in the pioneer days. His father, Albert B. Sears, came with his family from Bowling Green, Kentucky, in early 1875, and his mother, August (Augusta) F. (Ruggles) Sears (whose family had crossed the country in a covered wagon to mine for gold), was born in Woodland in 1860. Grandpa's family lived in Woodland and Winters except for a period of time when his father, a carpenter, moved the family to Los Angeles in 1889.

Grandpa's work life was varied: he told me he was boarded out as a young boy to work on farms in the Cottonwood District. Later he purchased a farm where he lived with his mother until World War I, at which time he was called to war. He sold everything, but when he presented himself to the military, he was rejected due to medical reasons. Because his farm was gone, he worked in the Alameda shipyards until he moved back to Winters where he met our grandmother, Bessie L. Kramer, and they married in 1923. Grandpa and Bessie lived in Winters at their house at the corner of Edwards Street across from the Chapman house. This house had previously been the post office in Buckeye. It was later moved to Winters. Two children were born to them: their son who died near birth and their daughter Olga Sears, now known as Betty.

During his life in Winters, Grandpa worked in and around Winters as a truck driver with his brother, Claud Sears, a tractor driver and farmer. While a resident of Winters he was a member of the Winters Fire Department from 1941 to 1968 and later a member of many organizations.

Grandpa was fortunate to meet and marry his second wife, Ruth (Drayer). They remained in Winters until their move to Vacaville to be near the Vacaville Senior Citizens Center. After living independently for years, he eventually moved in with Ruth's daughter and her husband, Grace and Les Pugh, after Ruth's death. (Les was also Grandpa's nephew.) It was a comfortable and loving arrangement. Grandpa loved to play cards and flirt with the ladies at the Vacaville Senior Citizens where he had many friends. Grandpa continued to live with Grace and Les until his death a few days ago.

Through all his life grandpa has had the loving support of his daughter and her husband Betty (Olga) and Bob Barriskill, who presently live in Antioch. Also living in Antioch are two of his grandchildren: Kathy Bagley, her husband, Mike, and their daughters, Stacey and Jamie; and my own family, my husband Pat and our daughters, Cassie and Megan. In nearby Clayton lives grandpa's grandson and his family, Ed, Kathy, Trisha Barriskill and Kathy's daughter, Emily...." (written by Peggy B. Perazzo)

"Winters Express," Winters, CA, thursday, July 2, 1992, pg. 2.

Rites held Monday for Ray "Mose" Sears, 102

Funeral services were held at the McCune Garden Chapel in Vacaville Monday, June 29, for Ray Fielding "Mose" Sears, who died June 23 at the home of his step-daughter and her husband, Grace and Les Pugh, in Vacaville at the age of 102 years and six months. Burial followed at the Winters Cemetery. Pastor Richard Christenson of Paradise Valley Church officiated at the services.

Mr. Sears was born Dec. 23, 1889, in Los Angeles, and moved with his family to Winters when he was 6 months old. He was a farmer in the Winters area for 70 years and a volunteer fireman with the Winters Fire Department. He moved to Vacaville about 10 years ago and became active in the Senior Citizens Club in Vacaville, serving as president for awhile.

He was a member of the Odd Fellows Lodge in Woodland, the International Order of Red Men in Dixon, the Rebekah Lodge and Pocahontas Lodge.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Ruth V. Sears in 1985. His first wife, Bessie (Kramer) Sears died in 1964. Survivors include his daughter, Olga Mae Barriskill and son-in-law, Bob Barriskill, of Antioch; a step-daughter and son-in-law, Grace and Les Pugh of Vacaville; three grandchildren, Eddie Barriskill, Peggy Perazzo and Kathy Bagley, all of Antioch; two sisters, Gladys Samson of Sacramento and Juanetta Lee of Walnut Creek; a nephew, Ray Sears of Vacaville; and five great-grandchildren...."

SEARS

Vivian Calvin Sears

(I was unable to locate an obituary for Vivian Calvin Sears. He probably did not have an obituary as he was a transient and buried by Sacramento County. The following information was taken from his death certificate.)

Vivian Calvin Sears 18 October 1931 in the Sacramento, Sacramento County, California. He was buried as a county burial in the old Sacramento County Cemetery. He was listed as only having been in Sacramento for two months prior to his death.*

* The old Sacramento County Cemetery is located behind the St. Mary's Cemetery. When I last saw it several years ago the cement blocks with metal plates listing the name and number of the person were piled in piles at the ends of the rows. The cemetery was plowed to keep down the weeds.

The following information is from my own family research:

Vivian Sears' parents were Fielding Thomas and Elizabeth Cross (Paris) Sears. They moved from Warren County, Kentucky, to Woodland, Yolo County, California, in 1874. Vivian's brothers were: John Thomas Sears; Robert Asbury Sears of San Francisco; Albert Bascum Sears of Woodland, Yolo County, California; George Paris Sears, of Mayfield, Lewis County, Washington; and Bradford Sears of Kentfield, Marin County, California. He also had a sister named Nancy M. Sears who died either as a baby or as a child in Kentucky. All of Vivian's brothers came to California with their parents except for his brother John T. Sears. About 1900 Vivian married Martha Jane (Combs) Sears who died in Chino, Los Angeles County, California, on 5 October 1922. I could find no indication that Vivian had any children, although census records indicate Martha had a child from a previous marriage.

SEBASTIAN

Honorato 'Andy' Sebastian

Honorato "Andy" Sebastian, a 36-year resident of Winters, died on Oct. 24, 2002, at Sutter Davis Hospital after a lengthy illness. Born Oct. 14, 1928, he was 74 years old.

A native of Sao Miguel, Azores, he worked for 29 years for American Home Foods in Vacaville, moving from Oakland to Winters in 1966. He was an ardent fan of the San Francisco Giants and 49ers. His love for Bay Area sports teams was exceeded only by his love for his family. He was a member of Teamsters Local 857 and the Winters Senior Citizens Club.

He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Marge Sebastian of Winters; two sons, Gilbert Sebastian and his wife Lenore of Davis and Michael Sebastian and his wife Kathy of Winters; grandchildren, Lauren, Kaitlin and Amber Sebastian of Winters, Matthew Sebastian of Anchorage, Alaska, and Colin Gordon of Evanston, Ill.; and great-grandchildren, Kaysea Sebastian of Anchorage and Zoe Gordon of Sacramento.

He is also survived by two brothers, a sister and numerous nieces and nephews.

Following cremation, graveside services will be held at the Winters Cemetery on Friday at 11 a.m. under the direction of Smith's Colonial Chapel. The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the donor's favorite charity.

SEDGWICK

Allison Coulter Sedgwick

Allison Coulter Sedgwick, daughter of Joel Wright Coulter and Edna Alice Barlow, died Oct. 28, 2001, at home in Davis, giving up a struggle with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

As a bright, curious woman, she enjoyed a noteworthy and diversified life as a businesswoman in the financial marketplace, with friends, civic duties, religious studies, travel and performance arts taking priority. In the 1970s she was president of the Kern Unit of the American Cancer Society, subsequently becoming State Division Board representative, and member of the Board of Directors in 1981.

Additionally, as a third-generation Californian, she was a popular lecturer on historical California women throughout the state. A consistent theme throughout her life was her open-minded approach toward new ideas and a friendly attitude motivating communication.

Born in Los Angeles on July 27, 1912, she moved as an infant with her parents to their ranch in Kern County near Bakersfield. She was home taught until fourth grade, when she enrolled at Buena Vista School in a one-room country school on the corner of the family's section of land.

Her family returned to Los Angeles in 1927 where she graduated from Marlborough High School. Attending the University of California, Los Angeles, she was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and earned a bachelor's degree in botany. In the late 1950s she attended Cal State University, Fresno, and received an elementary teaching credential.

Life milestones included living on Oahu during the Pearl Harbor bombing on Dec. 7, 1941; marrying Dr. Frederick Paul Sedgwick, a third-generation doctor, in 1942; and the birth of their daughter Deborah Coulter Sedgwick. Her ancestral family migrated from Scotland and Ireland and England in the 1700s, settling in both the north and southern territories of the new world. Transportation links from the East Coast brought the pioneering families to Los Angeles on the distaff side by the Lewis and Clark Trail, establishing the Barlow Toll Road, while on the staff side from Clarksville, Tenn., by the Transcontinental Railway in 1877. Both families were entrepreneurs.

In 1980 she moved to Boise, Idaho, where she continued managing her business while organizing lectures for brown-bag lunches at the Idaho Historical Museum and earning a Master Gardener certificate through the University of Idaho Cooperative Extension. In 1995 she moved to Davis, where she set up residency near her daughter's family. As a strong promoter of the arts, she joined The Friends of UCD Presents and donated significantly to the UC Davis Center for the Arts campaign.

Additionally, she was a benefactor of Northern California Children's Therapy Center in Woodland both ideologically as well as contributing significantly in the name of Lisa Brittan, supporting the vital work of the therapists and staff providing quality therapies for children with a variety of special needs. CTC has named a therapy room in her memory.

She also participated in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's new theater fund in Ashland.

She leaves behind her daughter, Deborah Sedgwick Brittan and son-in-law Kent, and two grandchildren Laurel and Lisa Brittan; her sister-in-law, Janet Coulter Poteete and her children Suzanne Mulvehill, Becky Rogers, Colleen Bellue, Reese Coulter and Joel Barlow Coulter; and first cousin Jane Inch Gessler of Oakland.

On her husband's side she leaves her sister-in-law, Emily Sedgwick Stone, and her remaining child John Sedgwick Stone; and nieces and nephews, Richard Sedgwick of Alma, Dr. Robert Clinton Sedgwick of Louisville, Ky., and Emily Ann Sedgwick of Torrance.

Donations in her memory may be sent to the Northern Children's Therapy Center, 96 W Main St., Woodland, CA 95695. The center is a public benefit nonprofit corporation (EIN 68-0309705).

SEN

Lourminia "Mimi" Cariño Sen

Lourminia "Mimi" Cariño Sen, a 37-year resident of Davis, died May 13, 2005, after a 10-week battle with pancreatic cancer.

A celebration of life Mass will begin at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at St. James Church, 1275 B St. in Davis. A reception and program will follow.

She was born and raised in the Philippines and received a bachelor's degree in food technology from the University of the Philippines. She also earned a bachelor's degree in food science, a master's degree in food science/biochemistry from Oregon State University - where she met her husband Arun - and a Ph.D. in agricultural chemistry/biochemistry from UC Davis, where she was a National Institutes of Health Pre-doctoral Fellow.

She had an illustrious career conducting research at UC Davis and later in 1991 serving the state of California Department of Food and Agriculture's Center for Analytical Chemistry. In 1996, CDFA Secretary Ann Veneman presented her with the Outstanding Performance Award for her efficient management of the laboratory.

In 2001, Gov. Gray Davis appointed her the agricultural and environmental science adviser to the California Department of Food and Agriculture; she was the first person to be appointed to the position of science adviser. This year's State Science Day on May 25 will include a tribute to Sen to thank her for her dedication to science and the state of California.

She dedicated her life to her family and the community of Davis. While raising her two daughters, she was active in the Davis School Arts Foundation (president in 1987-88), Girl Scouts, Davis Ballet and, later, the Davis Art Center and Habitat for Humanity. However, her most extensive volunteer work was on the board of the International House of Davis.

Starting in 1986, she chaired the Philippines conference and eventually became the vice president in charge of programs. An excellent cook, she initiated the ethnic dinners and Thanksgiving dinners that brought people together from all over the world. During that period she also chaired the China conference, Japan conference, Sunday brunches and international teas.

Her volunteer work at I-House led to her being honored that year with the city's Brinley Award for outstanding contributions to an organization.

Mimi Sen was always opening her home to people from other countries. The Sen family has hosted more than 40 foreign exchange students. In one way or another, she was continually promoting respect and appreciation for all peoples and cultures - in her personal life, her volunteer life and her professional life.

Mimi is survived by her husband, Arun, and daughters, Anita and Monina; mother, Loida Cariño; sisters, Monette, Eleanor and Marilu; and brother, Larry.

She also is survived by nieces and nephews, Papu, Cecilia, J.P., Piku, Christine, Toni, Chotu, Dominic, Anthony, Monica, Jay, Mac Mac and Marie; sisters-in-law, Tutun, Maya and Bing Bing; and brothers-in-law, Manju, Arturo, Socrates and Edwin.

She was preceded in death by her father, Laureano; brother, Josefino; and faithful dog, Sooner.

The Sen family has asked that any contributions in Mimi's name be given to the International House, 10 College Park, Davis, CA 95616.

While working with the State of California Department of Public Health, Mab met and married Haig Shamshoian in 1940. During his tour of duty in World War II, she returned to San Francisco and continued to work as a PHN. When Haig returned from France after the war, they spent some time living on Army bases in Kansas and Texas. Then at last, in 1946, the two native Californians headed home to San Francisco. Their only child, a daughter, Harriet Ann was born in Sacramento in 1946.

Mab most likely wanted to stay in San Francisco, but her husband had a new job to oversee the construction and be chief administrator of the Yolo County Housing Authority, which was the first low-rent housing program for non-migrant workers in California.

Mab kept herself busy working with the blood bank for the Red Cross and worked with the hospital auxiliary as a volunteer.

Mab was an avid reader and the library would call her when a new book arrived they thought she would like to read.

Mab returned to college at UC Davis while raising her daughter and attained another degree. She returned to full-time nursing at Yolo General Hospital while her daughter was in college.

Mrs. Shamshoian is survived by her daughter, Harriet Giles and husband Richard and her granddaughter, Elyse, all of The Woodlands, Texas. She was preceded in death by her husband Haig Shamshoian in 1988.

They bought a vacation home at Lake Tahoe and fixed it up to enjoy with family and friends, celebrating George's 80th birthday there, surrounded by his entire family. He was past president of the Lee School PTA, a lifetime member of the Elks Lodge No. 1299, a member of American Legion Post No. 77 and a volunteer driver of the Woodland Community Care Car.

A memorial service at Covell Gardens will take place in the spring and a private scattering of his ashes will be held at a later time.

Born in Kearny, N.J. on Nov. 1, 1924, he was the oldest of three children born to Robert Kerr Shaw and Cecilia Keane Shaw, who immigrated from Paisley, Scotland in 1923. During school, he excelled in both academics and sports, especially football. In 1940, during his junior year at Kearny High School, he was an invited guest at the presentation ceremonies of the Heisman Memorial Trophy Award in honor of Thomas Harmon.

After high school, he attended Brooklyn Academy and then Admiral Farragut Academy in Pine Beach, N.J., where he continued to play football until enlisting in the United States Navy in 1943. After completing basic training in Newport, R.I., and attending the Submarine School in New London, Conn., he served as a quartermaster, third class, in the Atlantic on the USS Porpoise and USS Cachalot. In 1944, he was appointed to Webb Institute of Naval Architecture, N.Y. as a Navy V-12 student for officer training and accelerated college instruction. While there he received his first two years of college engineering course work while continuing to play football and basketball.

He married his high school sweetheart, Joan Anderson Ward, in Kearny on Feb. 16, 1946. The following summer they moved to Moscow, Idaho so he could attend the Idaho School of Mines on the GI Bill. He took very heavy course loads each semester and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Mining Engineering with High Honors in 1948 and a Master's in Metallurgical Engineering in 1949. To support his young family while in school, he tutored other students in math, worked on road survey crews, and during the most memorable summer of his life (1947), assisted Prof. William W. Staley on a 3,800-mile survey of the mineral deposits throughout Idaho. It was during this summer that he fell in love with the wilderness areas of the Sawtooth and Salmon River Mountains and the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in central Idaho.

After graduation in 1949, he worked for a short time with the Idaho Bureau of Mines and Geology then embarked on a very successful career in mining, metallurgical, and chemical engineering that moved his family back and forth across the United States several times and took him to mining sites throughout the world.

Porter Company, Western-Knapp Engineering Company, National Lead, Ralph M. Parsons Company, and in 1986 he retired as a vice president of process engineering for Lurgi Corporation.

In his personal life he was an avid reader, loved traveling, enjoyed collecting coins, and had a passion for college football and basketball. He particularly enjoyed traveling to the mountains and ocean and made trips in recent years to Idaho, Lake Tahoe, the Mendocino Coast, and Monterey Peninsula. While living at Covell Gardens, he helped run the Country Store, played poker and bingo, and participated on the hospitality committee. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was described as very intelligent and a gentleman by his family, colleagues and friends.

SHERWIN

Jeannette Sherwin

Jeannette Sherwin, 55, a community activist dedicated to making the East Bay a better place to live, died suddenly of a heart attack on Jan. 18, 2004.

She published Oakland News at her Web site (www.Oaklandnews.com) from her home in North Oakland and was lauded for her dedication, acerbic touch, clever writing and lively sense of humor.

"Jeannette was one of the truly remarkable citizen activists of the Bay Area," said Carl Pope, executive director of the Sierra Club and longtime friend.

The Oakland City Council adjourned in her honor last week.

She was born on Dec. 11, 1948, in Evanston, Ill., and moved to California in 1974. She was predeceased by her parents, Francis James Sherwin and Barbara Redfield Sherwin of Glencoe, Ill. Jeannette was the oldest of four children.

She was raised in suburban Chicago and attended high school at Box Hill School in Surrey, England, with her siblings. The boarding school, unusual in its day for being co-ed, emphasized responsibility and independence, two qualities that Jeannette developed. She later graduated from Clark University in Worcester, Mass.

Sherwin loved to poke fun at city officials in her work, but also could be very serious. In a 1996 letter to the S.F. Chronicle, she recounted the death of her mentally ill and homeless younger brother, Forrest Sherwin, and described how to address the problem of homelessness.

She is survived by her sister, Elisabeth Sherwin of Davis, and her brother, Frank Sherwin of El Cajon.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, at the University Retirement Community, 1515 Shasta Drive in Davis.

Born in Philadelphia on June 6, 1922, to Frances and Meyer Shore, he served in the U.S. Marine Corps in World War II and was wounded in Palau in the Pacific Theater.

He enjoyed many accomplishments throughout his years as a theater director, writer, university professor and activist. An unwavering advocate of social justice, he worked throughout his life for peace and democracy in the United States and in Africa. He was active in the civil rights movement in the U.S., and wrote and directed a documentary on Martin Luther King Jr. titled "Walk to Freedom."

His lifelong connection to Africa began with undergraduate studies in comparative literature (African and African American) at the University of Pennsylvania in the 1940s. In his many years working in Africa, he developed close associations with significant revolutionary leaders, including Kwame Nkruma, Julius Nyrere, Nelson Mandela and playwrights Wole Soyinka and Athol Fugard.

His most enduring connection was with Eduardo Mondlane, founding president of the Frente de Libertação de Moçambique. The Herbert Shore Collection in honor of Eduardo Mondlane is housed at Oberlin College in Ohio. For his work on behalf of Mozambique, he was honored with the Mozambican Bagamoyo Medal of Honor in 1989. He was also made an honorary member of the African National Congress.

His activist work was paralleled by literary and academic work at such institutions as the Annenberg School, the Folklife Festival of the Smithsonian, the University of South Florida (theater department chairman), the University of Southern California (associate dean, School of the Arts, 1979-93), and UNESCO (director, Council on Technical and Cultural Transformation, 1974-88).

Among his many awards include those from the Ford Foundation, the Mobil Corp. and the Rockefeller Foundation.

A prolific writer, he wrote and directed plays ("Ashes Dark," "Antigone," "Kongi's Harvest," "The Vulture"), published short stories and poems ("A Sea that Burst Out Roaring," "Angola Wedding," "Santa Claus and the Kenya Cock," "Death Camp Museum"), and contributed theoretical essays on theater and southern African politics ("Barrie Stavis, the Humanist Alternative," "The Arts in a Technological Society," "Machel, Mondlane and Mozambique").

In the 1970s, Shore's work focused on cultural issues in the United States. At this time, he began an impassioned collaboration with wife and artistic partner, Yen Lu Wong. Together they conceptualized and produced several works of international acclaim, including "SHI-ME," "Documents from Hell," "Cicada Images Moulting" and "Call of Ancient Voices."

After retiring and moving to the University Retirement Community in Davis in 2001, Shore published, with George Houser, "And I Will Go Singing," the oral history of the late Walter Sisulu, the past president of the African National Congress. At URC, he founded, with wonderful new friends, the Senior Readers Theater, the Senior Play Group and the Literary Salon.

He will be remembered for his vibrant intelligence and his passion for peace and justice.

He is survived by his wife, Yen Lu Wong; his daughters, Pia Ilyen Wong and her husband Bruce Griesenbeck of Sacramento and Maya Iming Richards and her husband Steve Richards of Santa Monica; and his grandchildren, Riley Hui, Emily Ming Griesenbeck and Chloe Lian Richards.
