Lipsky, Syma T. (In Memoriam)  
April 22, 1945 - August 5, 1974 Syma was born in a small town in Iowa. She moved to Beverly Hills with her family when she was 8 years old. Syma graduated from Beverly Hills High School and went off to Stephens College with her lifelong best friend, Laurie Rodsky. Syma then graduated from UCLA and began her dream of being a teacher. She helped open the new Primary Education Program at Hawthorne Elementary School in the Beverly Hills School District with her close friend Laurie Kelson. Syma married Jay Lipsky in 1970 and they settled into their life together, surrounded by family and friends. Tragically, Syma was diagnosed with breast cancer in April of 1974 and died after a short illness. Her life could be said to have ended almost before her dreams had any opportunity to be fulfilled. She had many songs left to sing when she died, and many stories to write. It would be wrong, however, to think only of what she could have done, because in her short time with us she did so very much. Memories of Syma's love and kindness to so many people are carried in the hearts of these people even 40 years after her death. Let us never forget the beauty of Syma's life.

Matheson, Charles (Bart)  
March 28, 1926 - April 20, 2015 Bart Matheson passed away on April 20 surrounded by loving family, where he peacefully drifted into Heaven in his sleep. After surviving a stroke two years ago, Bart had worked hard to gain back his strength with hopes of returning to the golf course one day. Due to complications from medication, he experienced a set-back that he did not recover from. To know Bart was to love him, his friendly personality, his handsome looks, his kind and unwavering support to anyone who needed him. He will be missed every single day. The world has lost a true gentleman. Surviving him is his loving wife of 68 years, Kate Matheson, and his children Malcolm and Suzanne, whose heartbreak is as large as his absence. Heaven gained another angel. We love you, Dad, more than words can say. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to the San Clemente Municipal Golf Course 150 E. Avenida Magdalena, San Clemente, CA 92672.
