Mary June McCue Resident of Mountain View Mary June McCue was born in Pontiac, Michigan, on November 27, 1922. She passed away on April 4, 2015, following a brief illness. She and her brother, John, and sister, Lois, were lifelong supporters of the University of Michigan, where she earned her teaching degree. She and Lois moved to San Mateo in the mid-1950s to be near their brother and his family. Mary June and Lois delighted in family gatherings and as expert shoppers, they generously selected the latest fashions for gifts for their nieces. In her long career, Mary June was a well-respected English Professor at the College of San Mateo until her retirement in 1997. She was very proud of her career as a teacher and had many enduring friendships among her colleagues, as well as sustained friendships going back to her college days. Because of her sociability and quick wit, she made friends easily. She had a way of making people feel comfortable. Mary June and Lois were well known, and well liked, in the community. She enjoyed watching all sports, travel, and most of all, furthering her education. She took her sabbatical at the Sorbonne in Paris, and took many summer courses at Stanford University. Mary June will be missed tremendously by her brother's large family. Many happy, loving times were spent with her, and she was always very generous with her time and knowledge. After her sister's passing in 2012, Mary June relocated to Mountain View where she continued to make friends. Her dear brother passed in 2010, and her devoted sister-in-law, Mary E., passed in 2014. Mary June is survived by 6 nieces, 3 grandnieces, 2 grandnephews, and 3 great grandnephews.

Segna, Isabella - Sunnyvale  
Isabella Segna May 24, 1928 - May 28, 2015 Resident of Cupertino Isabella Bernadette (Zaccardi) Segna, loving wife of Joseph John Segna Sr. for over 67 years, passed away at the age of 87 in Cupertino, CA of complications of Alzheimer's. She was born May 24, 1928 in Provo, Utah, the daughter of Oriente and Rosaria (Zezza) Zaccardi. She was a graduate of Provo High School. Isabella, her two sisters and three brothers were all proud to be first generation Americans. Isabella and Joseph met in Provo at a "soda shop" where she worked. They were married at Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Church there on August 23, 1947. After some time in Utah and Pennsylvania they moved to California where they were to spend the rest of their lives. They were the parents of six children, Joseph Jr. (Kathy), Larry (Denise), Barbara (Oz Dupps), Marcia (Michael Carolan), Gino (Suzanne) and Annette (George Davis Jr.). She is predeceased by her son Joseph and daughter in law Suzanne, also her parents and three brothers. As her children grew and married she became a Nonna to 13 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Isabella was a loving mother who was proud of her catholic faith and raised her family with a firm but gentle hand. She was never too busy to listen or lend a helping hand. Isabella had a wonderful sense of humor and would laugh until the tears came. She was also a very creative homemaker, teaching her daughters to sew and cook. She was always happy to host large gatherings at the family home. At these gatherings there were the most delicious foods one could produce from the tiniest of kitchens, enough to feed her large Italian army. Many of her wonderful recipes have been passed down and will continue to be enjoyed by the generations yet to come. Later in her life she wove beautiful pine needle baskets and looped treasure bags. Even with her glaucoma, she continued to create amazing items while we teased her that she was blind in one eye and couldn't see out of the other. Isabella loved to travel and had met many of her relatives on her trips to Italy. She treasured those memories. Isabella was a loving, caring person who will be greatly missed not only by her family, but by the many friends she made throughout her life. We wish to thank all of the wonderful staff at Sunnyview Retirement Community who showed so much love and kindness towards our mother during the last years of her life. The quality of her life was greatly enhanced by the attentive care that was given to her. Thank you also to Pathways Hospice Care who provided great comfort to our mother and family in the final months of her life. Friends are invited to attend a Graveside Service Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at 1:00P.M at GATE OF HEAVEN CEMETERY, 22555 Cristo Rey Drive, Los Altos.

Obituaries from the Past Three Days

Bowman, Norman H. - San Jose  
Norman H. Bowman July 24, 1919 - May 20, 2015 Resident of San Jose A resident of San Jose, Norman H. Bowman, 95, passed peacefully on May 20, 2015. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Katrina, and Virginia Richey Bowman, his wife of 62 years. He leaves behind his children, Robert (Lois), Karen (Vincent), and Judith. Norman was a long time resident of the Burbank district of west San Jose. Over many years he helped Virginia run her family owned business, Bowman's Flowerland, located on West San Carlos Street. Norman grew up in Gilroy and proudly served overseas in World War II. Upon returning home, he pursued his love of journalism and worked for The Gilroy Dispatch, San Jose Times, Los Gatos Times and would eventually secure a position with The San Jose Mercury where he worked from 1948 to 1978. His daily column, "Business As Usual", related the news from the smallest family-owned local businesses to major corporations like Ford and IBM. His career gave him the opportunity to forge business relationships with local politicians who would go on to careers on a national level and interview CEOs of new companies that would become household names. One of his fondest memories was being invited by Ford to drive one of their newest models, the Mustang, in a road rally in Monaco followed by tea with Prince Rainier and Princess Grace. In 1978, he retired as Financial Editor for The San Jose Mercury. After his retirement, he remained active in many local groups and served as Editor for the California Legionnaire and Commander for the local American Legion Post. In recent years, Norman maintained his "nose for news" by sitting in his front yard and chatting with passing neighbors and the many Valley Medical Center employees who walk during lunch breaks. Services will be held Tuesday, June 2, 2015 at 1:00 pm, Oak Hill Memorial Park, Chapel of the Roses, 300 Curtner Ave., San Jose.
