Obituaries from the Past Three Days

Jarvis, Joyce Beveridge (In Memoriam)  
October 17, 1920 - May 25, 2015 Joyce B. Jarvis, 94, passed away Monday, May 25, 2015 surrounded by loving family members and caregivers in Anaheim, CA, following months of declining health. Beloved wife, mother of six, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother, caring nurse for more than 60 years, respected nurse educator and a joyful creative woman who loved science and art in equal measure. She was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Laurence W. Jarvis, who passed away three weeks earlier. Joyce was known for arriving late to family functions and even in death needed just a little more time before joining Coe for eternity. Joyce was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, to American parents, Fredrick and Marie (Plante) Beveridge of Little Falls, Minn. The family returned to their home during her childhood, and later moved to Minneapolis, where she graduated from the Academy of Holy Angels high school in 1938. She entered the College of St. Catherine for its highly-regarded St. Mary's Hospital School of Nursing, and graduated in 1944. Known as St. Kate's, the College became the first Catholic institution to be recognized by Phi Beta Kappa in 1937. After graduation, she pursued a graduate degree in nursing education at Georgetown University, where she met a young law student, Laurence Welford Jarvis, and fell in love. They married in 1950 and moved to Silver Spring, MD where they welcomed their first four children, Judianne, Jean, John and Paul. In 1957, they moved to Southern California, and added two more sons, Peter and Philip to the family. Joyce returned to hospital nursing on a part-time basis when her children were older, then pursued her interests in nursing education. She became a clinical nursing instructor for LVN and RN programs at Fullerton College, and other colleges in the district there. She practiced nursing during a time of extraordinary medical discovery and innovation, and kept pace with all of it. She described the horrors of the polio ward during the epidemics of the early 1940s, and Minnesota's pioneering use of the Kenny treatment, which required round-the-clock hot packs and limb movement for the seriously ill. That care soon replaced the harsh strap-down and immobilize-style protocol. More than two decades later, in 1964, she stood in line at a community hospital late into the evening to make sure each of her children had their first dose of the oral polio vaccine, a pink droplet on a sugar cube. She retired from nursing in the 1980s, and with her husband spent time traveling the world and visiting grandchildren. With Laurence, she was an active parishioner of St. Mary's Church in Fullerton, volunteering as a member of the Altar Society. They were members of the parish for more than 57 years. In her sixties, she also began to pursue her interests in art, taking classes in drawing, watercolor and even metal sculpture. She is survived by her six children, Judianne (Kenneth Jaffe), Jean (Michael Selch), John, Paul (Elizabeth Knapp), Peter and Philip (Sachiko Hiroyama), and by nine grandchildren, Katie, Rachel (Justin Jones), Lance, Adam, Philip, Daniel, Hayley Selch, Thomas and Ruth, and two great-grandchildren, Ben and Jenna Jones. She was preceded in death by her only brother, Fredrick C. Beveridge. A rosary service will be held on Friday, May 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the McAulay & Wallace Mortuary, 902 N. Harbor Blvd., Fullerton. The Memorial Mass is scheduled for Saturday, May 30, at 9 a.m. at St. Mary's Church, 400 W. Commonwealth Ave., Fullerton. Reception and celebration of life will follow. Interment at Riverside National Cemetery will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: St. Catherine University, Henrietta Schmoll School of Health, 601 25th Ave. So., Minneapolis, MN 55454.

Obituaries from the Past Week

Jarvis, Laurence Welford (In Memoriam)  
November 15, 1921 - May 6, 2015 Laurence W. Jarvis, 93, passed away in Anaheim, CA, on May 6, 2015 of glioblastoma. Beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother; US Army veteran of World War II; devoted parishioner of St. Mary's Church in Fullerton, choralist for the church and the Braille Institute; Latin scholar, genealogist, humorist, punster and honest lawyer. He was born in Washington, D.C. , the fifth of nine children, a third generation Washingtonian and a twelfth generation descendant of a Mayflower passenger. After graduating from Gonzaga High School, he entered Georgetown University in 1939. There, he succeeded his older brothers Norman and Charles as manager of the Georgetown Band, often subbing as a tuba player in marching formations though he couldn't play a note. Home football games were played at Griffith Stadium, away games in venues including Yankee Stadium, the Polo Grounds and Fenway Park. The band routinely played at Washington Redskins' home games, including the Sunday of Dec. 7, 1941. He recalled that game for its frequent disruptions over the loud speaker, as the announcer called by name for an admiral, Army officer or senator to "return to your office immediately." The following semester, he enlisted in the Army. After basic training, Cpl. Jarvis shipped out on the Queen Mary with the Battalion of Combat Engineers. He served in Northern Europe as part of Patton's Third Army and was among the corps that liberated the concentration camp at Buchenwald. All six Jarvis brothers served in uniform; one, Julian Jarvis, was killed in France in 1944. After the war, he returned to Georgetown, graduating in 1947 and entered the law school there and graduated in 1949. There, he met his future wife, Joyce Beveridge of Minnesota, then studying for her master's of nursing. They married in 1950, moved to Silver Spring and welcomed their first four children, Judianne, Jean, John and Paul. In 1957, the family moved to Fullerton, California, where sons Peter and Philip were born. In his career as a lawyer, he worked in real estate and housing law, joining FNMA in 1957, where he rose to Regional General Counsel in Los Angeles. He retired in 1982. He once said of his career at Fannie Mae that he really served three companies: first, a government agency, then a public company, and finally, a non-profit. In retirement, he and Joyce enjoyed world travel and educational tours, visits to grandchildren and volunteer work. In his late sixties, he lost much of his sight to a rare eye disorder (NAION), and began to use new technology - the personal computer - to read and correspond. At the Braille Institute, he learned touch-typing, and traveled there by city bus to sing in the choral group. He was a man of extraordinary wisdom and character, yet carried himself with a modest dignity. A man of letters, he was an avid historian and a writer of thoughtful correspondence and amusing poems. He had an outstanding ear for music, and could carry a tune and whistle any song he knew. He was admired for his calm and patient manner, his deep faith and devotion to his wife and family. He is best remembered for his ready wit and impeccable sense of humor. He enjoyed bringing a smile to every day occasion with his remarkable aptitude for erudite puns or his encyclopedic recall of silly old jokes. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Joyce; his six children, Judianne (Kenneth Jaffe), Jean (Michael Selch), John, Paul (Elizabeth Knapp), Peter and Philip (Sachiko Hiroyama), and by nine grandchildren, Katie, Rachel (Justin Jones), Lance, Adam, Philip, Daniel, Hayley Selch, Thomas and Ruth, and two great-grandchildren, Ben and Jenna Jones; and by his younger sisters, Sheila Jarvis Rice and Margaret Jarvis Bowen, as well as 34 nieces and nephews. A rosary service will be held on Friday, May 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the McAulay & Wallace Mortuary, 902 N. Harbor Blvd., Fullerton. The Memorial Mass is scheduled for Saturday, May 30, at 9 a.m. at St. Mary's Church, 400 W. Commonwealth Ave., Fullerton. A celebration of life will follow. Interment at Riverside National Cemetery will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to: Georgetown University Pep Band, Georgetown Gift Processing, Dept. 0734, Washington, D.C. 20073.
