Faraday Louis Bartos Obituary
Faraday Louise Bartos
Faraday Bartos passed away peacefully at home July 5, six months after celebrating her ninetieth birthday. Faraday was born January 28, 1923, in Evanston, IL. Her father, John Ransom, a well- known physicist, insisted on naming her after Michael Faraday, the English physicist, whom he greatly admired. Faraday's family moved back to the L.A. area where her brothers Phillip and Roger were born. Leaving college, Faraday joined the U.S. Navy WAVES and served as an aerographer. In 1944 she married John Roman Bartos and they had four children: Jonel, Holiday, Camilla and Christopher. They rejoiced in their eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Faraday and Johnny were early settlers of Manhattan Beach. Until her death, Faraday resided in the house that they built in 1948. Their home became a magnet for family, friends, food, song and sharing. The Bartos home was a welcoming refuge for countless friends, relatives, foreign exchange students, and passing travelers. Faraday's many talents included knitting, sewing, quilting and painting. She loved and taught music; she played the guitar beautifully. Faraday and John became early members of the MBCC then located on Highland Ave. These early "Church Friends" became the foundation of the life they built in Manhattan Beach and she remained active in MBCC throughout her life. Faraday has passed on her strength, talents, determination, and adventuresome spirit to her family. The family would like to express their deep appreciation to Faraday's longtime caregiver, Marie Moise. A memorial service will be held Saturday July 13 at 2:00 pm at the Manhattan Beach Community Church. Visitation will be on Thursday July 11 from 4:00- 8:00PM at White and Day Mortuary. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations for the Cystic Fibrosis Transplant Program c/o Manhattan Beach Community Church. Go to www.lafuneral.com to send the family messages.
