Obituaries from Two Days Ago

O'Connell, Patricia - San Jose  
Patricia O'Connell June 5, 1921 - April 22, 2016 Longtime Resident of Los Gatos Patricia Helen (Goulding) O'Connell died peacefully on Friday April 22 2016 surrounded by family. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and tireless in her faith throughout an exceptional life. Patricia was born in Al Capone's Chicago; Cicero, Illinois to Irish immigrant parents. After completing nursing college in Illinois, she enlisted in the Army. While awaiting dispatch to Europe she met her husband, William J O'Connell in Belfast, N. Ireland in the Officer's Club on St Patrick's Day. They were separated for two and a half years as Patricia served in Patton's Third Army Nurse Corp as a lieutenant in an evacuation hospital, tending to all who needed care in five major battles. She married 'her Bill' on Thanksgiving Day 1945. They raised ten children. She was widowed at a relatively young age after settling in California, but Patricia kept the faith, returned to nursing, and raised her children to be nurses, teachers, artists, scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs. She was tireless in spite of adversity, with an irrepressible sense of humour as sparkling as her Irish eyes that will be remembered by all who knew her. Patricia O'Connell was the wife of William J O'Connell (d. 1970), mother of Daniel (Yvonne), Terry (Mary), Tom (Gail), Emmett (Kathy), Patrick (Dorothy), Michael, Kathleen (Mukesh), Mary-Ann (Rick), Maureen (Dennis), John (Beth), grandmother of 26 children and great-grandmother of 15. She told each of her family members the same message at the last, words which she lived her life in example, "I love you, keep the faith." In her final days she repeated many times, "I would do it all again." The rosary will be at Darling Fischer Mortuary, Los Gatos on Friday April 29 2016 at 7:00 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday April 30 2016 at 10 AM at St Mary's Catholic Church, Los Gatos. Donations in Patricia's name can be made to Glenmary Home Missioners.

Rinehart M.D., Robert M. - San Jose  
Robert M. Rinehart, M.D. Oct. 29, 1933 - April 24, 2016 Resident of Saratoga Bob was a native son of California. Born in San Francisco, he grew up in Burlingame and Hillsborough, and spent the last half century in Saratoga. His ancestors, however, were among the first Europeans to settle in North America. His fourth great grandfather, Michael Rhinehart, founded the Massanutten Settlement along Virginia's Shenandoah River in 1733. Bob shares this ancestral immigrant heritage with his neighbor and fifth cousin Sarah Rinehart McCollam. Like his father and grandfather, he practiced medicine in the Bay Area. A graduate of Dartmouth College, Bob earned his medical degree at UCSF Medical Center, completing a four year residency in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology in 1963. His professional career included military service in Japan and practice at several Northern California hospitals. In 1965, Dr. Rinehart joined Associated Pathology Medical Group, where he specialized in Dermatopathology, interpreting cutaneous biopsies for referring physicians. He was especially proud to have served as President of the South Bay Pathology Society. Bob leaves his beloved wife, Julie, of 58 years, two sons: Robert of Saratoga and William (Katherine) of Petaluma, and granddaughters: Laurel and Elizabeth Rinehart of Los Gatos. Bob's genealogical research reveals that Julie's ancestors are also of pre-revolutionary lineage. Family members gathered at home to celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, donations to Hospice of the Valley or Montalvo Arts Center are encouraged. View the online memorial for Robert M.  Rinehart, M.D.
