Amon, Barbara Joan (Brown) - Formerly Of White Plains  
Amon, Barbara Joan (Brown) Born on June 21, 1927 to parents Dorothy Quinby Brown and William James Brown in White Plains, New York and she passed away on May 7, 2015 in Plano, Texas surrounded by her daughter and family. After Barbara was born, tragedy struck when she was about 6 months old when her father was killed in their car when struck by a drunk driver. Her mother and grand-parents raised Barbara and her older sister and she never expressed bitterness of any kind. Barbara attended White Plains schools and graduated from White Plains High School in 1945. Barbara married her high school sweetheart and the love of her life, Howard Amon, on October 29, 1948 while he was attending University of Virginia. Howard rejoined Barbara in White Plains upon graduating and attended New York Law School. Barbara gave birth to two sons and a daughter between 1950 and 1953 and was a devoted mother. Barbara took care of her husband and children during ten moves throughout the United States from Connecticut to California while he was with JCPenney. She found time between packing for the moves to volunteer for charity, drive patients to chemotherapy appointments and play bridge. Barbara was devoted and supportive in every way and Howard adored her and the result was a successful and remarkable marriage. They shared great travel and attended wonderful events like the Indianapolis 500 and the Kentucky Derby and truly were best friends and companions. Howard knew he could count on Barbara to know what to say when they were with his business associates at a fancy gala or invited to their home. During Barbara's years in Plano, her granddaughter Elizabeth was her faithful companion and spent hours together developing a special relationship. Needless to say, Barbara Brown Amon was a remarkable wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend and she will be missed so much by those who loved and cherished her more than words can express. Barbara (Mom, Grannybar) was preceded in death by her beloved husband of over 48 years, A. Howard Amon, Jr., and her parents, and older sister Ruth Hope Quinby. She is survived by three children: son Arthur H. Amon, III and wife Leta of Danville, California; son Scott R. Amon and wife Sherrie of Vancouver, Washington; and daughter Patricia Quinby Amon Johnson and husband Scott Johnson of Plano, Texas. She is survived by nine grandchildren: A. Blake Amon and wife Masie, Collin, and Lauren; Valerie Amon Hopper and husband Adam, Russell, and Amanda; Christopher R. Johnson and wife Jenni of Frisco, Texas, Elizabeth Q. Johnson and Michael W. Johnson both of Plano, Texas. She is survived by two great-grandchildren: Alexandria Amon and Derrick Hopper both of Washington state. Barbara Amon is survived by numerous nephews, nieces, and friends. Barbara (Mom, Grannybar) Brown Amon will live on forever in the hearts and minds of all of us. In lieu of flowers, consider contributions to The Sacramento Assistance League or Smile Train.

Briggs, Dora Moreton - Emeryville  
Briggs, Doras Moreton 7/4/1918 to 5/4/2015 Emeryville Noted rail advocate Doras Moreton Briggs died peacefully in her sleep at her home in Emeryville at the age of 96. She was born in Waterloo, Iowa, to Arthur Ralph and Blanche Moreton; her family moved to California during the Great Depression. Doras attended Oakland Technical High School and UC Berkeley, where she received a degree in music in 1942. She was a chimes mistress for the campanile on the Berkeley campus for many years and played the organ for several local churches. Doras also worked at the Richmond Shipyard during World War II. From 1951 to 1978, she served as an assistant to the vice president in the University of California Office of the President, and she ultimately became assistant director for the UC Expansion Project. Doras was passionate about politics, genealogy, and rail travel. She fully researched her family tree, and got to know dozens of family members previously unknown to her. Doras fell in love with trains on her fifth birthday, when she took her first trip from Waterloo to Cedar Falls, Iowa. She and her husband were active members of the East Bay Model Engineers Society. Once she retired, Doras devoted herself to promoting rail travel through local and national advocacy and lobbying. She served as a member of Amtrak's Customer Advisory Committee, Director of the National Association of Railroad Passengers, and Director of the Train Riders Association of California, among other rail advocacy positions. She often spoke to local groups and traveled to Washington to lobby for Amtrak, and she testified before a Senate committee about the importance of Amtrak for seniors. In 2001, at the age of 83, Doras founded the Station Host program at the Emeryville Amtrak station, training volunteers to provide information to passengers. Under her leadership, the program spread to many other California stations and has spawned similar programs in other states. She received frequent recognition for her rail advocacy, including the California Golden STAR Award, the George Falcon Golden Spike Award, and Amtrak's Champion of the Rails. In 2003, she moved from her long-time home in Kensington to an apartment overlooking the Amtrak station in Emeryville, and she continued to go to the station every morning and travel on the trains until just weeks before her death. Doras was known around Emeryville as the "train lady," and she wore her conductor's hat proudly until the end. Doras is survived by her step-son Russell Briggs (Anna Lange), Campbell; step-grandson Richard Briggs, Emeryville, who became her faithful companion and caregiver during the past several years; nieces Barbara Schmedding (Dave), Corvallis, Oregon; Valerie Hauser (Dave) of Dallas, Oregon; and Lucy Moreton-Hall (David Book), Reno; nephews, Paul Moreton, Walnut Creek; and Ron Briggs, Alameda; cousin, Christine Buck, Alameda; three step-nephews; numerous grand nieces and grandnephews; and hundreds of Amtrak staff, volunteers, and passengers who appreciated her devotion to the cause of rail travel. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Lowell Briggs; brother Fred Moreton; sisters Violet Cooper and Bethene Moreton; and niece, Sandy Faustino. A memorial service will be held on June 10, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at the California State Railroad Museum, 125 I Street, Sacramento. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Station Host program, the Yosemite Conservancy, and the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Berkeley. Info: Richard Briggs 408-645-8639.
