Obituaries from the Past Three Days

Festersen, Lorna (Matteson) - Roseville  
On Friday evening, April 22nd, surrounded by her family, Lorna Matteson Festersen, passed away after a brief bout with cancer. Born in Port Angeles, WA, September 24, 1949, to Frank Matteson and Louise Retz Matteson, she was raised in Penryn, and graduated from Del Oro High School. Lorna was a loving and welcoming spirit, and was the perfect compliment to her husband of 38 years, Fred Festersen. Lorna loved to travel escaping to their cabin in the Sierra, Hawaii and Dillon Beach, but more than anything, she loved being surrounded by her family. All who knew her, felt her genuine love and tenderness - as she took anybody in need, under her wing. She was kind, graceful, beautiful - with a laugh that could light up the room. We love and will miss you, Lorna. Thank you for making our lives better. She is survived by her husband, Fred Festersen; daughter, Jennifer Bell (Pete Tharp); son, Brad Festersen (Ileana); six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren; and by her sisters, Carole Matteson and Francine Richens of Sutton, NE, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents. A Funeral Mass will be held at St. Clare Catholic Church in Roseville, Thursday, May 5, 2016 at 12 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Salvation Army in Roseville, http://www.gosalarmy.org/deloro/roseville , or The American Cancer Society, www.cancer.org .

Freed, Virginia Louise (Pereira) - Sacramento  
Virginia was born in San Jose, California, and was the cherished daughter of the late Jose and Mary Pereira. She is survived by her loving husband Darryl Freed, her beloved daughter Carlene Marie Rossi Metzler, her devoted son-in- law Rod Metzler, her two precious and treasured grandsons, Spencer Levin and Trevor McBroom, her darling first great grandchild (due in August), her caring nephew Mike Pereira (Gail), her dear niece and goddaughter Linda Pereira Ragno, her great nieces Lisa Holmes and Katie Dare, and her great nephew Kevin Bookbinder. Virginia was predeceased by Jim McDonald, her husband of 28 years (1990), her brother Al Pereira (2010), and her sister-in-law Lydia Pereira (2012). Virginia's parents immigrated to the United States from Pico, part of the Azore Islands, in the early 1920's. They spoke only Portuguese and worked in dairies and canneries until settling in a dairy in Stockton, California in 1934. When Virginia started school at St. Agnes Elementary, she did not know a word of English. But Virginia learned the language quickly and taught it to her parents, who eventually became proud United States citizens. Virginia graduated from St. Mary's High School in Stockton in 1951 and was the valedictorian of her class. In 1962 Virginia, her husband Jim, and daughter Carlene moved to Sacramento. Soon after, Virginia began working for the Sacramento City Unified School District, where she rose from machine bookkeeper to the Supervisor of General Accounting - the first woman to ever hold that position. In 1974 Jim, Virginia, and Carlene moved to Elk Grove. When Carlene and her family moved to Rancho Murieta in 2003, Virginia sold her home in Elk Grove and moved to Rancho Murieta to be near them. Virginia authored a cookbook entitled Now You're Cookin' - a lifelong collection of treasured recipes. She wrote the entire book in calligraphy, and although it took her five years to complete, it was very much worth the effort. Virginia gave copies of the book to her family and close friends. Virginia loved music, parties, dancing, playing bridge, cooking, entertaining, traveling, her Portuguese heritage, and spending time with her family and friends. Virginia was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. A Celebration of Virginia's Life will be held at Rancho Murieta Country Club on Saturday May 14th from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Friends and family are welcome to attend.
