Grover, Martha Diane - Lakeport  
Martha "Dianne" Grover Martha "Dianne" Grover passed away March 12, 2015, at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco. She was born in Montebello, CA, June 11, 1946, to Everett and Betty Owens. In 1961, the family moved to Lakeport. Dianne graduated from Clear Lake High School. She married Leon Grover in 1964 and has a son, Leon "Lon", and daughter, Stacie. In 1974 the Grovers moved to Burney and later to Fall River Mills in Northern California, but spent many summers and weekends back in Lakeport to visit family and friends and get out of the cold. Dianne was fun-loving with a sense of adventure and, at different times of her life, enjoyed cheerleading, water skiing, camping, and fishing (here she would say "YUK") and she was a voracious reader all of her life. She especially loved the ocean where she would venture in up to her ankles only when she was feeling especially brave! She had a special fondness for animals and children. Funny, compassionate, and a great listener, Di always had the ability to instantly make friends and make everyone feel like family. Family was very important to Dianne. Always a kid at heart, Dianne loved spending time with her two granddaughters in Colorado, Ashley and Courtney. Even strangers at the grocery store got a full update of her special girls, her pride and joy! They were truly the loves of her life. Dianne's laughter, joy, generosity, and spirit will be missed by her family and many, many friends. She is survived by her husband, Leon; son, Lon; daughter, Stacie (Larry) Packard; granddaughters, Ashley and Courtney; sister, Marilyn (Mike) Williamson of Lakeport; nieces, Penny, Page, Christy, and Holly; nephew, James; great-nieces, Kiersten, Stella and Sierra; and great-nephew, Branden. A celebration of Dianne's life will be held on Saturday, March 28, at 12 noon at the Lucky 4 Trailer Park, 1060 N. Main St., Lakeport. Dianne would have liked you to do something for yourself or loved ones or donate to your favorite charity. Arrangements by Chapel of the Lakes Mortuary, Lakeport.

Middleton Ph.D., Allen H. - Fresno  
Allen H. Middleton, Ph.D. Dr. Allen H. Middleton passed peacefully from this earth on March 17, 2015, with his wife by his side. Allen, the beloved son of Myrven and Dorothy Middleton, was born in Upper Lake, California on October 13, 1938. In Allen's early years, there was a glimpse of the warrior he would become when he got in trouble for playing with matches, nearly burning their house down, and swimming alone across Clear Lake. He grew up hunting with his Dad, working on their walnut ranch, participating in 4-H and FFA, and playing on the Upper Lake High School basketball team. His parents' wise counsel, as well as the rugged forestry work he completed while in college, led him to choose his career in Clinical Psychology. As Allen completed his Bachelor's and Master's Degrees at California State University, San Francisco, he fell in love with his future profession and with Rita Fouts whom he married in December 1962. His first professional job after leaving college, at Sonoma State Hospital, deepened his compassion for his patients. When a School Psychologist and Guidance Counselor in Kings and Tulare Counties, Rita and Allen's son, John, was born enriching their early years as husband and wife psychologists. Allen's expertise rewarded him with Coordinator of Psychological Services and Special Education at Porterville Public Schools and led to Allen treating developmentally disabled adults and Directorship of a six-county area at Central Valley Regional Center. Allen was never content with only one professional endeavor. He attained his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 1976 at The California School of Professional Psychology, overlapping his CVRC Directorship, Consultancy at Department of Rehabilitation, and Professorships at Pacific College, California State University-Fresno, and College of Sequoias. He continued teaching at Chapman College and UC San Francisco School of Medicine. He authored Epilepsy, published in 1981. Continuing education was important to Allen; he published greater than 20 research papers over the span of his career. Always a patriot, from 1962 through 1998, Allen honorably served his country, achieving the rank of Colonel, Medical Services Corps, United States Army. Reserve assignments included Plans and Training Officer, Company Commander, Executive Officer, Operations Officer to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and Chief of Operations, US Army Pacific Theatre Command, Headquarters US Army Japan. Allen's private Clinical Psychology practice in Visalia, California, was his biggest professional love. From 1976 through 2015, he specialized in anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress disorder. He loved his patients and their families. Inspired by David Swanson, who returned from the Vietnam War very changed, he came to understand, assist, cure, and deeply care for his veteran patient population. With the Tulare County District Attorney, Allen was a founder of the fourth Veterans Court in the State of California, a job he was well suited for given his earlier experiences as a Court Hearings Officer and Expert Witness. He balanced care to veterans with other patients in the area with psychological challenges and became known locally to his colleagues and patients for his special aptitude with posttraumatic stress disorder. Allen's practice always thrived. Again, overlapping work achievements, from 1986 through 2009, Allen was a Psychological Consultant for Disability Determination Services (DDS) with the State of California, Department of Social Services. As the only Psychological Consultant for DDS in the state, he had a positive, statewide impact on high quality psychological disability determinations. Here he met and courted his future wife, Jayne, and they married in February 2000. Second only to his patients and profession, Allen loved to travel. He said that his only regret was not living until age 95 so that he could travel more. He traveled to many countries, but a favorite place was New Mexico and the Santa Fe area. His enchantment of the area began early in his life when he completed his doctoral dissertation research in New Mexico with Native American children. In August 2014, veterans he treated honored Allen with a memorial brick at Angel Fire Vietnam Veterans State Park, NM, for his service to veterans. His parents, Myrven and Dorothy, and his wife, Rita, preceded Allen in death. He is survived by his wife, Jayne Middleton, son, John Middleton, MD and his wife Susan, granddaughters Jenna and Marissa, mother-in-law Betty Parikka, sister-in-law Donna Parikka, brother-in-law Dennis Parikka, niece Tonya Clifton, and many friends and cousins whom enriched the last year of Allen's life. Remembrances to honor Allen's life can be made in his name to The California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant University, 5130 E. Clinton Way, Fresno, CA 93727, or to a charity of your choice. Services by Boice Funeral Chapel of Clovis, will be held at 11:00 a.m. on March 28, 2015 at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 2672 E.
