Obituaries from the Past Week

Cashman, Jane Myrl O'Connell - Redwood City  
Jane Myrl O'Connell Cashman May 8, 1925 - December 10, 2014 Born and raised in San Francisco, Jane lived in Los Altos Hills for the past 46 years. She passed peacefully at the age of 89 on Wednesday, December 10th, joining her late husband, Richard, sister Betty Berg and brother Michael O'Connell.  She attended Saint Anne's Elementary School and Presentation High School in San Francisco. Jane graduated from UC Berkeley in 1949 with a degree in home economics when women were not allowed to major in chemistry. She later earned her Special Education teaching credential and three master's degrees related to teaching. She taught special needs students throughout her career. Jane married the love of her life, Dick, in 1951. Together they raised five children: Dan, John, Joni (Mike Dunham), Patti (Brian Moore) and Patrick Cashman. Jane cherished her grandchildren, Dan (Oana), Nicola, Ben, Elisabeth Jane, and Emily Cashman; Valerie, Stephanie and Delia Moore. She is survived by her sister-in-law Margaret Cashman and will be greatly missed by her extended family: nieces, Sue (John Garcia), Kathy (Keith Maclaury) Mary (Petro Estakhri) and nephews Tom Berg and Tom Cashman. Marvin Cheng was her "adopted son" and the family would like to thank Marvin for his many years of friendship and support.  Jane initially worked in a hematology laboratory at UCSF. After she was married, she first dedicated all her time and energy to raising her young family. As her youngest child entered first grade, she devoted herself to teaching special needs children for the next 40 years. Jane was renowned for her exceptional patience and enthusiasm to educate and help special needs children gain independence. She was recognized by her colleagues for her gift of teaching, enthusiasm and refusal to give up on challenging students. Jane was compassionate, never complained, never had a bad word for anyone, and was otherwise a saint. She is fondly remembered as a loving mother and wife; caring, smart, and friendly, a woman who spoke her mind through a few gentle words and humor. Jane enjoyed holidays as well as travel and annual trips to Lake Tahoe with family and friends. One of her favorite annual events was the Big Game and getting together to celebrate with her lifelong group of friends, the Cal Gals.  Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Jane's Life on Saturday, December 20th at 10 am at Redwood Chapel, 847 Woodside Rd, Redwood City, 94061. Internment follows at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma.  In lieu of flowers, the family prefers donations made in Jane's name to the Morrissey-Compton Educational Center< http://www.morrissey-compton.org > 595 Price Avenue, Redwood City, CA 94063650-322-5910 www.cvobituaries.com
