    Betty May Pickett, age 88, of Balboa Island, CA, went to be with the Lord on March 4, 2011.
    "Mimi", as she came to be known, was born in Pasadena on August 15, 1922 and grew up in Long Beach, where she went to Long Beach Poly High School. There as a cheerleader she first met Gene Pickett, an athlete, who would be her husband for sixty-six years until she passed.
    Betty May and Gene went on to the University of California, Berkeley, where she majored in Education. Ten weeks after Betty May and Gene married on June 27, 1944, Gene went to serve in the WWII infantry in Italy, while Betty May left school for two years to work in the munitions factory in support of the war effort, followed by her graduation from Cal in 1945. In 1952, Betty May and Gene moved to Downey, Ca. and acquired "Marker's Preserving Kitchen", a business that manufactured homemade jams, jellies and chocolate candies, marketing these goods in handmade gift packs to the business community. This business landed the Picketts on the cover of Business Week in 1959. There in Downey she was president of the Assistance League and was involved in St. Marks' Episcopal Church. Betty May moved to Balboa Island with her husband where they have lived for the last 43 years.
    "Mimi" always gave more than received. For all those years she made the Pickett home a place of love, nurture, and hospitality, where literally hundreds found warmth, kindness and hope. She is famous among her grandchildren for hosting overnight slumber parties and playing games of all kinds, day or night. In Newport Beach, she played tennis at the Balboa Bay Cub and played bridge with her long- time friends in their self-titled "Newport Invitational" group. While in Newport, she attended both Mariner's Church and a St. Andrew's Presbyterian Covenant Group.
    She is dearly loved and will be so missed by her husband, Gene, her four children-Michael, Kathleen, Christine and Todd--her eight grandchildren, and all who frequented the Island home for so many years.

    Pickett, Lawrence Eugene "Gene", age 92, of Balboa Island, CA, went to be with the Lord on July 30, 2013. Born in Kimball, Nebraska on November 20, 1920, Gene and his family, whose grocery business suffered during the Great Depression, sought new opportunities by moving west to California when Gene was 12. The family eventually settled in Long Beach where Gene attended Long Beach Poly High School. He played baseball and football and was a member of Comus Club. Most importantly, he met Betty May Long, a pretty cheerleader who would become his wife of 67 years until her passing in 2011. Upon graduation Gene earned an athletic scholarship to the University of California, Berkeley, where he majored in History and was a star football player for the Golden Bears. Gene and Betty married on June 27, 1944, and ten weeks later Gene went to serve in World War II as an Army infantry officer stationed in Italy. Upon his return, Gene worked for Schmidt Lithograph as a traveling salesman, often accompanied by his young family. In 1952 Gene struck out on his own when he acquired Marker's Preserving Kitchen. The business, adjacent to the family home in Downey, was well known for its unique handmade gift packs of homemade jams, jellies, and candied fruits. The success of this small business landed Gene on the cover of Business Week Magazine in 1959. Always community-minded, Gene served as president of the Rotary Club International in Downey and as Senior Warden on the Vestry of St. Mark's Episcopal Church. He eventually transitioned into commercial real estate and in 1967 moved to Balboa Island with Betty May where he lived the rest of his life. Always an athlete, he could often be found on the tennis courts at the Balboa Bay Club and at Sunrise Country Club at Rancho Mirage where he and Betty May enjoyed another community of friends. Additionally, through his membership in "Missing Links", his love of golf was coupled with lasting friendships. An accomplished watercolorist and prolific writer, Gene left abundant evidence of a creative and balanced life. To the family and friends who loved him, "Papa" and his dear "Mimi" will be most remembered for their hospitality, and the love, kindness, and generosity which literally hundreds of people found within their home. As the patriarch of the Pickett Family he instilled his values of integrity, loyalty, faith, and unconditional love to his four children: Mike, Kathy (Leedom), Chris (Steckel) and Todd. It is a legacy that will live on in his eight grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and those still to come. A memorial service celebrating his life will be held at Mariner's Church Chapel in Irvine, CA on Monday, August 19th at 3:00 pm, with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Gene's memory to the Wounded Warrior Project ( or 887-832-6997).


    Allen, Martha Sawyer 75, of Minneapolis and Richfield, died Saturday April 28, 2018, after a determined fight against a failing body. She lived her life with enormous gusto and will be greatly missed. For 28 years, from 1976 to 2004, Allen worked for the Minneapolis Tribune and Star Tribune as a reporter, assistant city editor and section editor. She covered religion for 19 years and in 1996 created the newspaper's Faith & Values section, which was named the nation's best religion section the following year. As a religion reporter, she covered a Sundance ceremony at the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota and visited sites around the Aegean Sea where the Apostle Paul once walked. Before arriving at the Star Tribune, she was a reporter and copy editor in Mason City, Iowa, and an instructor at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, where she fought for equal pay for female instructors. Allen nurtured many passionate interests, including travel, books and bird watching. She was a volunteer tour guide at the Weisman Art Museum at the University of Minnesota and led two major studies of Minneapolis city government for the League of Women Voters. The backyard of her Minneapolis home was a shady oasis, and her flower arrangements won a wall of blue ribbons. Travel took Allen around the world, including to Russia, New Zealand, Europe, South America and several African countries. She voyaged across the south Atlantic from Cape Horn in Chile to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. She was an exchange student in Uganda in 1968 and kept in touch with her beloved host family, who planted a garden outside Kampala in her honor. Friends remember her humor, profanity, curiosity, fanaticism for the KU Jayhawks and skill as a story-teller along with her passion for good government and good journalism to keep public officials honest. Every Fourth of July, she donned a green patina crown and voluminous green robes to play Miz Liberty at the 50th Street Pageant and delivered a furious assessment of bad politics. She ended with a heartfelt rendition of Emma Lazarus's poem The New Colossus -- "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." When asked how she wanted to be remembered, she wrote, "I was always curious and loved a good story. I found the world a fascinating place, and I loved to travel. I loved to laugh. I hope I was helpful and generous and loyal." Martha was born March 13, 1943, to the late Mary and Ethan Allen of Lawrence, Kansas. She is survived by her sister, Mary Elizabeth Allen, of Lawrence, several cousins in Iowa, Kansas and England, and a vast circle of friends in Minnesota, Africa and elsewhere. Martha and her sister established the Ethan P. Allen Fund for the Study of American Government at the University of Kansas, in honor of their father, a noted political science professor. In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to Africa Uplifted, P.O. Box 883, Cumberland, Wis., 54829, which supports a variety of needs in Sierra Leone; or OC Ministries, 122 W.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, May 18, at Lake Harriet United Methodist Church, 4901 Chowen Ave. S., Minneapolis. A visitation/social hour will begin at 1pm, and a reception will follow the service.

    FROM THE DuBOIS COURIER dated 9 May 1919:
    Joseph Dungey, Old Resident Died Yesterday.
    Joseph Dungey, a resident of DuBois for the past thirty years, died at his home on Locust street yesterday morning at 8:30 o'clock, following a short illness. Mr.Dungey had not been in the best of health for over a month. During the middle of April he got very sick, but on April 20th he left his home for the purpose of going to the station to meet his son, Frank, who just returned home from France. The following day his condition was much worse and he was compelled to take to his bed. He remained in bed for several days, but improved somewhat and was able to be around again. He arose yesterday morning, apparently feeling very good, but was taken by a sudden attack of heart failure and died within a few minutes.
    Mr. Dungey was a man well known in the neighborhood and was held in the highest respect by those who knew him. He was a man of quiet disposition, but a true friend in every respect. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias. He is survived by the following sons and daughters: Mrs. C. L. Houser, of DuBois, Frank and Herbert at home; Robert, in service in France. The deceased was 56 years of age, being born in England in 1863.
    Definite arrangements for the funeral have not been completed, but it is probable that they will be conducted by D. J. Vernon Bell on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Presbyterian church.

    FROM THE DuBOIS COURIER dated 10 May 1919:
    The funeral of the late Jos. Dungey will be held on Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the home, 506 Locust street, instead of at the church as first mentioned. The deceased is survived by his wife in addition to the sons and daughters first mentioned.

    Mrs. Joe Dungey, Old Resident Dies Early Today
    Death came to another long time resident of DuBois this morning when Mrs. Christina 
    Dungey, of 506 Locust Street, died at her home after an illness of a month due to 
    complications. Death occurred at 7:10 o'clock.
    Mrs. Dungey, who was the widow of the late Joseph Dungey, had been a resident of 
    DuBois for 67 years and was one of that dwindling group of persons who went through 
    the big fire of June 18, 1888. She had joined the other citizens in fighting the 
    flames at that time and pumped water for men to use in their efforts to stem the 
    progress of the flames.
    Mrs. Dungey had been a member of the Presbyterian Church since childhood and had been 
    active in church as well as neighborhood affairs. She enjoyed a wide circle of 
    friendship and was held in high esteem by her friends.
    Mrs. Dungey was born on August 1, 1871, at Sugar Hill, Schuylkill County, making her 
    75 years of age. She was the daughter of Robert and Martha (Wilson) Davie who brought 
    her to DuBois when she was eight years of age.
    Her husband died in 1919, while one son and a daughter also preceded her in death. 
    She is survived by three sons, Frank and Herbert, of DuBois; and Robert, of Detroit, 
    and a daughter, Mrs.Martha Thomas, with whom she made her home. Two sisters, 
    Mrs.Martha Woodman, of DuBois, and Mrs. George McQuire, of Ebeneezer, N. Y., as well 
    as 13 grandchildren and two great grandchildren also survive. One grandson, Donald 
    Houser, is a Machinist's Mate aboard the Aircraft Carrier Shangra La, in the South 
    Funeral services are to be held on Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock (daylight saving 
    time) at the Moore Funeral Chapel, with Rev. Howard Tucker officiating, and burial 
    will be made in Rumbarger Cemetery. Friends will be received at the Moore Chapel from 
    7 to 9 o'clock this evening, from 2 to 4 and from 7 to 9 on Thursday, and on Friday 
    until funeral time.

    Miss Bessie, daughter of Joseph Dungery, of Tyler, and granddaughter of Robert Davie, 
    201 State street, died at her grandfather's last night at 8 o'clock, of typhoid fever. 
    Miss Bessie was fifteen years old and was a general favorite with those who knew her. 
    She was a member of the Presbyterian choir at Penfield. She came here about two weeks 
    ago to visit her relatives.
    Her aunt, Miss Isabelle Davie, who is training for a nurse at the McKees Rocks general 
    hospital arrived home yesterday morning.
    FROM THE PENFIELD PRESS dated 7 Jun 1907:
    Bessie Dungey.
    Greatly surprised and deeply grieved were the people of Penfield and Tyler when they 
    learned that death had invaded the home of Joseph Dungey of the latter place and 
    claimed the daughter Bessie aged 15. Bessie was a student of the Penfield schools last 
    winter. A few weeks ago she went to DuBois and became a helper in the home of 
    grandfather Davie.
    For the past two weeks she had not felt well, but it was only a few days ago that the 
    doctor pronounced the ailment to be typhoid fever and cerebral complications ensuing, 
    she passed away at 9 p.m. on Monday. The funeral was held Thursday afternoon from the 
    DuBois Presbyterian church, Rev. Robt. Morrison of Penfield in charge.
    She is survived by her parents, her brother Robert, Frances and Herbert, and her sister 
    Martha. The interment was in Rumbarger cemetery.

    Lonis A. Yelland Fatally Injured
    Receives Internal Injuries While Roping WiId Horse, Entangled in Rope
    Louis Abner Cleveland Yelland, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Yelland, pioneers of Spring 
    valley, and one of the oldest families in this section of the state, died Saturday 
    night as a result of injuries received while roping a bronco. He and Frank Garret, 
    trapper, had roped the cayuse and were both standing on the ground in the corral 
    holding to the rope in an effort to subdue the animal. The horse lunged forward quickly 
    and jerked the rope from the hands of Garrett, but in some way Yelland became entangled 
    and was whipped about over the rocks before he freed himself from the entanglement. It 
    was not thought that he was badly hurt as he arose from the ground laughing and walked 
    over to his saddle horse, which was only a short distance away, mounted and rode 
    towards his home.
    Yelland's friends say that he was a man who rarely complained even when in pain, and 
    for this reason they did not know to what extent he was suffering from the time he was 
    hurt Saturday at noon until he died at l:00 a.m. Sunday morning. Just before he retired 
    that evening he seemed drowsy and went to sleep in his chair, which he was not 
    accustomed to doing. His wife awakened him and he went to his room and retired. She 
    noticed he was somewhat pale but was not alarmed, as her husband made no reference to 
    being in pain. During the night Mrs. Yelland heard her husband gasping for breath and 
    when she spoke to him there was no answer-he was dead. An autopsy disclosed the fact 
    that he died of a ruptured liver.
    Young Yellaad was a man of fine habits and characteristics and by reason of his 
    sterling qualities and affable manner he had a host of friends in White Pine county who 
    will be deeply grieved to learn of his untimely death. He was born on the old Yelland 
    homestead at Nigger creek, October 26, 1895, and has spent his 3l years as a resident 
    of White Pine county. He was married ten years ago to Miss Marion Phillips, daughter of 
    the late William Phillips, of Muncy creek, and Mrs. Phillips. Louis was named after the

    Marlene Antoinette Marshall (1938 - 2016) Obituary.
     USAF (Nurse Corps) December 2, 1938 - March 31, 2016 Marlene was born at home on a 
    farmhouse southeast of Howells, Nebraska on a cold December day. She wasn't weighed 
    for three days because her mother had to take her to the local meat market to be 
    weighed and it was fiercely cold in Nebraska that day. The fourth of seven children, 
    she attended a one room country school, taught by her cousin, and didn't have a 
    classmate until the seventh grade when she went to middle school in Howells. A bright 
    student, she begged her Mom and Dad to go to nursing school. Following graduation 
    from Creighton University, and a short time as a nurse in Dr. Pavelka's office, 
    Marlene joined the Air Force on a Buddy Enlistment along with two nursing 
    girlfriends. They enjoyed four consecutive assignments in Texas, California, Japan 
    and Texas. It was there she met the love of her life, her crazy man Richard. They 
    married after a brief courtship and were happily and romantically married for 43 
    years. Concurrent with her 25 years military service; including Travis, Mather, March 
    and Wilford Hall hospitals and 10 years at the 65th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron; 
    she worked as a registry nurse at Mercy, Sutter, Kaiser and Rideout hospitals. Some 
    of Marlene's proudest accomplishments include assignments to Tachikawa AB, Japan 
    during the Vietnam Conflict; Operation BABY LIFT; and Operation DESERT STORM. In her 
    civilian career, she proudly nursed to those in need from the Sacramento Aids 
    Foundation. She was loved and admired by all she met and with whom she worked. While 
    also an avid gardener, Marlene flourished with her knowledge of the Lord while in her 
    Bible Study groups. A diehard Nebraska Cornhusker and Kings fan, she watched college 
    sports and rooted with GREAT vigor. Family will be pallbearers in lieu of the Kings 
    players since she couldn't endure the Kings letting her down one last time. Lastly, 
    those reading this who own QVC stock are advised to dump it quickly, Marlene is no 
    longer ordering. Lt Col Marlene is survived by her adoring husband of nearly 43 years 
    Lt Col Richard; sons Jason of Clarksburg and Lt Col Adam (Sally) Marshall, 
    grandchildren Alina and Jesse of Ellicott City, MD; sisters Vlasta Kennebeck, Council 
    Bluff, IA; Betty Kubat, Crystal Lake, IL; Alice Virgl, Wahoo, NE; Bonita Hubers, 
    Highland, CA; brother Ronald (Barbara) Dostal, Howells, NE; preceded in death by 
    parents James and Otilia Dostal; brother James Eugene Dostal; in-laws Scud and Yvonne 
    Marshall. Services with full military honors will be held at Clarksburg Community

    A SECOND CROP OF APPLES - On Saturday last, Mr.J.YELLAND, of St.Stephen's Coombe, near 
    St.Austell, gathered in his garden a dozen of early York apples, as a treat for his 
    family on the forty-sixth anniversary of his natal day. The apples were ripe, and grew on 
    a tree which produced a tolerably heavy crop last August. So forward are Mr.Yelland's 
    apples that there is another tree in full blow, and bearing a great number of stubbard 
    apples, which on an average measure rather more than four inches in circumference.

    ST. AUSTELL - On Tuesday and Wednesday se'nnight, two very excellent lectures were 
    delivered in the National School-room, on the United States of America, by Mr. Almond 
    YELLAND, who has been a resident in that country for the last ten years, and has 
    travelled upwards of 40,000 miles through twenty of the different States. The 
    subjects of the lectures were - a brief history of the country; its present 
    government; inhabitants; quality and production of the soil; opinion of the Americans 
    relative to emigration; the States most suitable for emigrants; a description of the 
    Mississippi river, and its largest confluents; the varieties of land peculiar to the 
    Western States; their traits and topography; productions of each contrasted; the 
    price and ....? Of purchasing the government lands; remarks on production; the 
    seasons most advisable to emigrate.
    The very interesting and important information contained in these lectures evidently 
    shows the advantage Mr. Yelland's long residence in the "new world" has given him 
    over any other lecturer on this subject. He not only gives encouragement to the 
    emigrant, but shows the difficulties he may at first, under some circumstances, have 
    to encounter, and the best method of surmounting them. The emigrant might research 
    volumes of history, geography, or travels without acquiring half the information 
    which these lectures convey; and it is a matter of regret that any one should leave 
    his native land for the United States, without such necessary instructions, as Mr. 
    Y's experience has enabled him to give; as an unadvised step taken at the crisis of 
    his entering on what may be termed a new state of existence, might materially affect 
    his fortune and happiness through life. The lectures do not merely excel in their 
    importance and usefulness to the emigrant, but the richness of his descriptions of 
    that beautiful and interesting country, which is delivered in an eloquent and 
    superior style, cannot fail to delight the hearer; and it is the impression of our 
    informant that he will become the most popular lecturer on this subject that has ever 
    attempted it in this country. It is well known to many of the readers of the West 
    Briton that the lecturer is a Cornishman, and has respectable connexions in this 
    neighbourhood. We understand Mr. Y. is about to lecture in most of the principal 
    towns in this county.

    ST.STEPHENS PLOUGHING MATCH - A Ploughing match took place on Tuesday, the 3rd inst., at 
    St.Stephens in Branwell, in a field belonging to MR.JOHN EASTERBROOK, of Carloggas. The

    WM.PEARCE, of St. Stephens; 2nd ditto, 10s. to ROBERT POLLOCK, of St.Stephens; and the 
    3rd ditto, 5s., to WILLIAM BONE, of St.Stephens. Double Ploughs - 1st prize, one pound, CHARLES 
    HARRIS, of St.Stephens; second ditto, 10s., WM.TREGENWIN of Probus. An additional 5s was 
    given to THOMAS TREMELLIN, of St. Mewan, for the excellent work he had made. The combing 
    performed by boys was greatly admired. 1st prize, 10s., THOMAS TRUSCOTT of St.Stephens; 
    2nd ditto, 6s., WILLIAM HARRIS of St.Stephens. After the decision of the umpires, the 
    parties returned to the Churchtown, where an excellent dinner was prepared at the Cornish 
    Inn, kept by MR.ALMOND YELLAND, and to which a large number did ample justice. After the 
    removal of the cloth, several toasts were drunk and responded to. The utmost harmony and 
    good feeling prevailed until a late hour, when the company retired evidently pleased with 
    the proceedings of the day.

Bob and Eleanor shared a love of golf and were long time members of the PVCC , where they shared many fun filled hours with friends. He was an accomplished woodworker and built an airplane, several boats, furniture and a camp. In later years he was a volunteer driver for the Orono Health Association, a service he was able to avail himself of in recent months.

    ROBBERIES - We learn that within the last three weeks several robberies have been committed in St. Stephens in Branwell and St. Mewan. A correspondent informs us that on Friday last, about midnight, the premises of Mr. DAVID YELLAND, a shoemaker at Pothole, were entered, and a new pair of shoes, with a great part of a hide of leather, were carried off from the workshop. The dwelling house had also been broken into, the thieves having taken money from Mr. Yelland's desk, also loaves of bread, cream, and other articles from the kitchen, including a dozen silver teaspoons, and a quantity of wearing apparel. The thieves had evidently enjoyed themselves, having smoked an ounce of tobacco taken from the mantel-piece, and fastened a lighted candle against the table before they decamped.

    At Roche, on Sunday, Capt. WILLIAM YELLAND, aged 55 years

    At COOMBE, in the parish of ST.STEPHENS in BRANWELL, on the 18th ult., highly respected, 
    Mr. Richard YELLAND, aged 90 years, for seventy-one of which he was a member of the 
    Wesleyan Society.


    Captain Isaac Williams, one of the pioneer mining men of the Menominee range, expired suddenly of a hemorrhage last Wednesday at the noon hour.
    Captain Williams had not been feeling well for several weeks and has been under the care of a physician since his return from Minnesota last spring.
    He came down from his home about eleven o'clock and visited with his friends for some time when, learning that his son, Nick, had returned from Washington he started up the street. When about a block from the house a hemorrhage attacked him and blood flowed freely. Irving Jackson and son, Gordon, met him and assisted him to the door where the blood began to gush heavily and his son Nick met him and carried him into the house. He placed him on the sofa when he breathed his last.
    Captain Williams was known all over the Menominee range as having sunk the sand shaft at the Aragon mine many years ago.
    Captain Williams was born in St. Austell, Cornwall, England on the 17th day of September, 1853, making him 50 years of age. He was married in his native land in 1871 to Mary A. Goodge and came to America in 1876, coming at once to the then wilderness on the Menominee range and located first at Quinnesec where he followed his chosen vocation of mining. From Quinnesec Mr. Williams went to Norway where he became well known as the man who sank the Aragon shaft. Later on he went to British Columbia where he remained ten years returning to the Menominee range to take the position of mining captain at the Michigan mine for the Oliver Mining company. From Amasa Captain Williams came to Crystal Falls where he has resided about six years.
    Five children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Williams, one of them being dead. The living are Nick, Isaac, Jr. and James, Mrs. Jas. Woodward and Miss Mabel.
    The funeral occured today under the auspices of the Maccabees to which order Captain Williams belonged.
    Captain Williams leaves, besides a widow and his five children, two brothers, Absolem, of Iron Mountain, who was present at the funeral and another brother in Colorado.

    On Monday last, at the Western Inn, Truro, by adjournment from the day before, when the 
    jury assembled for the purpose of viewing the body of James YELLAND, aged 25 years. It 
    appeared that on Saturday, the 24th ultimo, the deceased and some friends had been 
    drinking until a late hour at one of the retail beer-shops in Truro, and on their way 
    home, the former, who was very tipsy, was catching hold of each of his companions by 
    turns, and appeared inclined to wrestle with them. In their way home, they were joined 
    by a person called Henry Laverton who knew the deceased well, and thought he could lead 
    him home quietly. He attempted to do so, when the deceased began to wrestle with him 
    also, and before he could get away from him, they both fell together; but the deceased 
    fell on his back, and the back part of his head came in contact with the curb-stone of 
    the pavement, and stunned him. He was then carried home, and he died the following 
    Thursday evening. There were various reports in circulation as to the cause of death, 
    and the circumstances attending it in this instance, which rendered an inquiry before 
    the coroner more particularly necessary; but it appeared quite clear from the evidence 
    that there was no fighting or angry feeling between the parties in question, and that 
    the fall and injury were accidental. Verdict accordingly.
