King, Ruth - Gridley  
RUTH H KING Ruth Hunter King, Gridley businesswoman, passed away in her own home March 19, sur-rounded by family. She was 93. Raised near Benton, Arkansas, King came to California during World War II and moved to Gridley after the war. She was adamant in those early years in defending that women should be paid the same as men, and was proud to have been Gridley's first-ever woman real estate broker, starting King Real Estate & Insurance from her garage in 1958. A deeply spiritual wo-man and a long-time member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, King actively but dis-cretely sought ways to serve her "master broker" through the pro-fession she loved, help-ing underserved families buy their first homes and keep them. She considered her clients friends, and many new arrivals to Gridley remembered Ruth King as the first person to greet them. King is preceded in death by husband Earl E. King and is survived by son Robert King and daughter-in-law Mary King of Gridley; daughter Carole King and son-in-law Dennis Woodruff of Oakland; grandchildren Brett King of Madrid, Spain; Brian King and Aisha Djalo King of Gridley; Megan Woodruff and Jack Woodruff of Oakland; and great-grandchildren Gabriel King, Marley King, Devan Hill and Dylan Sharrock. Services will be held Thursday, March 26 at 2 pm at the Gridley-Biggs Cemetery. After inter-ment, a reception will fol-low at the Moose Lodge.

Richter, Mary - Chico  
MARY RICHTER Mary LaRae Richter, 82, passed away peacefully at her home in Chico surrounded by her adoring family, friends and caregivers, on March 17, 2015, after a 17-year long, courageous battle with Parkinson's disease. Rae was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, on July 17, 1932, to James and Mary Smith, at the height of the Great Depression. The oldest of four siblings, she was no stranger to tough times and hard work. The family moved around quite a bit, as her father searched for work. In high school Rae and her sister Margie got jobs behind a soda fountain at a drug store earning less than 50 cents an hour and gave their paychecks to their dad to help the family make ends meet. As was typical of her loving heart, she recalled even those challenging times fondly and with gratitude. She married Bernie Richter in 1953, just a few short years after they met in high school when he would come and sit on her desk during History class, no doubt with manure on the bottom of his shoes. Her sense of humor was key to the success of her marriage to Bernie, which lasted 46 years, until Bernie's death in 1999. She was the heart and soul of the family-owned businesses, Ray's Liquor in Paradise and Chico, Ray's Catering, and Ray's Video and Fun Center, managing the day-to-day operations and faithfully imple-menting all of Bernie's wild ideas. Her greatest joy in managing the businesses was her relationships with the people she worked with. She loved to cook and had a real knack for it. Her bolognese was legendary and most people felt they had never had a green salad until they had one of Rae's. After the businesses were sold she volun-teered at Rosedale Ele-mentary School, across the street from her home, when her Park-inson's was still in the early stages. She loved reading to the kids and got much joy out of her time with them. She often recalled with warmth and hearty laughter the time the little boy who was sitting on her lap reached up and touched her wrinkled neck and told her, "Your neck is old." She loved being a mother and grandmo-ther. She never placed any expectations on her children or grandchild-ren to be anything other than themselves, and delighted in whatever path they chose. She had a unique gift with people. She easily and instinctively poured out unconditional love to everyone. Her family and friends learned from her, by the example of her life, the most important of life lessons: remain hopeful no matter the hardships or disappointments, see the good in people, and have a grateful and forgiving heart. She was adored by all who knew her. She is survived by her daughter Karen Callen, her husband, Peter Callen, and their children Andy, Daniel, Melanie and Brooke, and Melanie's husband, Roberts; her daughter Suzanne Reade and her husband David Reade, and their children Reagan and Matthew; her daughter Kathleen Makel, her husband Darby Makel, and their children Molly, James and Natalie; her sister and brother, Margie Fredrickson and Gary Smith; her sister-in-law Mary Galeana and her husband, Obdulio Galeana; her sister-in-law Gwin Richter; her cousin Marty Dahl and his wife, Marsha; and 12 nieces and nephews. A public memorial service will be held in the backyard of her home at 1628 Oak Park Avenue in Chico on Saturday, March 28, at 2 pm. Condolences may be sent online at www.BrusieFH.com .

Roberts, Marie - Chico  
MARIE ROBERTS Marie Lucy Roberts died on March 13, 2015 in Chico, CA. She was born on January 7, 1922 to Sebastiano and Maria Dalla Lasta in Dunsmuir, CA, where she grew up in the house that her father had built a year before her birth. The neighborhood was called Nutglade, and many Italians had settled there. Her parents had come from Northern Italy so her father could go to work for Southern Pacific Railroad. Marie attended element-ary and high school in Dunsmuir where she excelled in her studies. She was an honor stu-dent and valedictorian of her graduating class. She also participated in many sports activities. Encouraged by the high school principal, she applied for and received a scholarship that enabled her to attend UC Berkeley where she did well academically and continued as an honor student. She attributed her good grades to the superior teachers she had during her high school years. She studied for five years at UCB in order to qualify for a high school teaching credential, majoring in Spanish and minoring in Physical Education. She also studied Portuguese. Her favorite sport was softball. The first high school where she taught Spanish, PE, English and typing was at Surprise Valley High School in Cedarville, CA. She was class advisor to a small class of seniors, 11 girls and one boy. Later, she taught at Jackson High School and Modoc High School. Marie married Adrian Roberts in 1946 at the Catholic Church in Dunsmuir. They met when she was teaching in Cedarville and later moved to Alturas. Marie taught at the high school while Adrian worked for the City of Alturas Water Department until they purchased a local plumbing business to open their own business in 1957, originally named Ade's Plumbing and Appliance, later re-named A&M Pump & Plumbing. Marie ran the business part of the operation, including hold-ing a plumbing contrac-tor's license (something she was very proud of), while Adrian performed the field service work. They later sold the business to their son and daughter-in-law, Bill and Marlene Roberts. He and Marlene still run the business today. When Adrian died in 2004 Marie moved to Chico, CA but retained many fond memories of her life in Alturas. Marie loved to paint with watercolors and acrylics, especially while volunteering at the Alturas Art Center. She also volunteered at the Modoc County Library selling used books. She enjoyed planting flowers and apple trees at her residence on Highway 299. Marie is survived by her sons, Adrian Jr. (Alice) of Chico, and Bill (Marlene) of Alturas, her daughter Kathleen (Dan) of Forest Ranch, her grandchild-ren Ami Roberts, James Jeffers, Brandon (Gloria Vargas) Roberts, Charlene (Joe) Johnston, Andr‚a Roberts, and her great-grandson, Jaxson Roberts. She was preceded in death by her husband, Adrian Sr., and her daughter and son-in-law, Mary (Roberts) Jeffers and David Jeffers. A memorial service will be held in Chico, CA at the Sycamore Glen Retirement Community, 1199 Diablo Avenue, at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 29th. Flowers may be sent to Adrian & Alice Roberts, 50 Fairview Circle, Chico, CA 95928 or memorial contributions can be sent to The Alzheimer's Association, The American Cancer Society, or The Parkinson's Foundation.
