Madison, Neta Lee Bagley - Oroville  
NETA LEE BAGLEY MADISON Neta Lee Bagley Madison, 94 years of age, passed away on Saturday, July 26, 2015, with both her daughters at her side. Neta was predeceased by her loving husband, Kenneth Madison, and by her brothers Aaron and Dean Bagley, her sister Ezma and son in law Charles Lueder. Neta is survived by her daughters Nancy Lueder of Oroville and Kathryn Coop (David) of Seal Beach, CA, 4 grandchildren, 11 great -grandchildren, 3 great -great grandchildren and her sister Gwen Ward of Seal Beach, CA. Our Mom was a homemaker and housewife in the true definition of those words, long before people forgot just how important that job could be. She made every home in which we lived a beautiful, warm and welcoming place to be. She loved and was proud of her family, was a great cook, loved family gatherings and holidays. Dad took a city girl and turned her into a farm girl and she thrived. Mom could do anything and did, she was unstoppable. She was extremely artistic with pen, paper, paint, fabric and cooking. Her dry wit and sense of humor was loved and appreciated by us all and will be missed terribly. We ask that you each make remembrance of our Mom in whatever way feels right to you, a smile and prayer, a kind act toward another person, a donation to your favorite charity. Mom was a giver of life, love and happiness and any act which carries those attributes forward honors her. Friends are invited to join Neta's family for a memorial service at the home of Nancy Lueder on Saturday, August 1, 2015, at 3 PM.

McCollum, Lenore - Chico  
LENORE MCCOLLUM Lenore McCollum passed unexpectedly at home on July 22nd, 2015 leaving behind her children Alexandra McCollum-Sherman, Casey Reed and her grandbabies Jordan and Jake, her sister Judy Spanovic, brother Tony Spanovic and her beloved husband "Poppy," Robin McCollum. She also left a community who were her extended family. For some of these she was also mom and will be remembered for the ways she nurtured and guided them through difficult and wonderful times alike. Lenore had a large life that she lived with enthusiasm, determination and passion. Those who shared in it will remember her joy in early morning coolness, tending her garden, her pleasure in offering a delightful, homemade meal to those she loved. She treasured sharing those beautiful and scrumptious morsels of life with others in exuberance and genius. Lenore was gifted at finding the jewels of life amongst the ordinary. She captured often the most magical moments and had a mysterious ability to preserve them. It is within those moments that she will live on and we will find comfort. She wore this on a pendant "The true harvest of my life is intangible - a little stardust caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched. " Thoreau Born in Kodiak, Alaska 8-25-44; Died in Chico California 7-22-15. In her honor, a celebration of life will take place at 10 Tilden Lane, Chico, on Tuesday, July 27, 2015 starting at 5 p.m. To give: youcaring.com , Lenore McCollum's Memorial Fund

Meith, Lillian Caroline (Mazzini) - Chico  
LILLIAN CAROLINE MEITH (NEE MAZZINI) Lillian Caroline Meith (nee Mazzini) died on June 27, 2015. She was born in Richland, Washington on May 18, 1918. Her family moved to Tacoma, Washington when she was one year old, and then to Los Ángeles, California when she was 12. There she graduated from Washington High School, and attended UCLA, where she was accepted into the nursing program. At UCLA she met the love of her life, Clem Meith, and they married in 1939. Clem's work as a UC Extension Service Farm Adviser required them to relocate to several counties in California, but they ultimately moved to Oroville in 1957 where they completed the raising and education of their six children and where Clem completed his career as a Farm Adviser in 1979. Lillian was truly a devoted wife, mother and household manager. Her husband and children were the center and joy of her life. She was a contributor to many charities, and a tireless volunteer to community organizations including St. Thomas Church, the Catholic Ladies Relief Society and the Oroville Discovery Shop. She was a regular on election days in Oroville as a poll worker. While living in Oroville she honed her considerable skills at Bridge, and remained an avid player throughout her life. After her husband's death, she moved in 2002 to The Terraces senior community in Chico, California where she made many new friends. In addition to her love of Bridge, she was an avid reader, an accomplished Scrabble (and other mind games) player, and an adherent of the philosophy of "keep on moving." Ever devoted to her family, she remained actively involved and interested in the lives of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, dutifully remembering every birthday. The annual family reunions to celebrate her birthday each spring became major events, and she fully enjoyed each one, most recently to celebrate her 97th birthday in May of 2015. She was an active member of the Catholic parish in every community where she lived, and at the time of her death was a member of Our Divine Savior Parish in Chico. When recently asked how she would like to be remembered, she said she would want it known that she considered herself a very lucky woman, having enjoyed a long marriage with a loving husband and a large and loving family. Her children and grandchildren consider themselves to be the lucky ones however, as her love, wisdom, and guidance will forever be part of our lives. She is survived by five children: Christopher (Michele) of Kirkland, WA; Stephen (Sherry) of Sequim, WA; Brian (Cordelia) of Durham, CA; Jeffrey (Yvonne) of Durham, CA; Melissa of Sonoma, CA; and by seven grandchildren and three great -grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her fourth child, David, in 1991, and by her husband in 1996. The family extends heartfelt thanks to all the residents and the caring staff at The Terraces for the friendly and healthy environment Lillian enjoyed through her many years there; to the staff at Enloe Hospital for its care and concern after Lillian's injury; and, special thanks to the staff of Paradise Hospice House for the loving care of Lillian. A memorial Mass for family and friends of Lillian will be held at Our Divine Savior Catholic Church on Friday, August 14, at 1:30 PM.
