Moeller, Adrienne - Santa Rosa  
Adrienne Moeller May 21st, 1947 - Sept 19th, 2016 Adrienne Ann Moeller passed away on September 19th, 2016 in Santa Rosa, California. Adrienne was born in San Francisco on May 21st 1947, to parents Rena (Rossetti) and Aurelio "Reo" Ferrau and younger sister to Marisa. Adrienne was raised in San Francisco on Lake Street in a very close Italian-American family with several generations under the same roof, including her uncle Al, and her Nonni Angelina. She split her time growing up between San Francisco and the family's summer house on Fitch Mountain in Healdsburg. After attending Washington High School in San Francisco, she graduated college from UC Berkeley. Post college she worked various jobs including as an elementary school teacher and a flight attendant, where she was able to travel the world. Later in San Francisco she would meet the love of her life, Joel Moeller, who she later married in 1977. In 1981 they left the city to buy a home in Santa Rosa and raise their family of three boys Dan, Andrew, and Nick. The consummate Italian mother, Adrienne developed a love of cooking from a young age with her mother, sister and grandmother. She enjoyed hosting family dinners, holidays and parties, where extra people would invariably show up just for her delicious food. She cooked with a lot of love. Those who ate her food - and there were many- can't remember ever having anything other than an exceptional meal. Adrienne spent many years as a loving mom to her three sons before returning to work as a bookkeeper at St. Rose and Cardinal Newman. In addition to her work, she dedicated her time to the community running the Mark West baseball snack bar as well as Piner High Boosters for numerous years. Healdsburg was a special place for her, as she spent summers and weekends as a youth with her family at Camp Rose on the Russian River. It was a close-knit community with friendships that spanned both decades and generations. She would later spend summers here with her own family, her sister Marisa's family, as well as her beloved mother-in-law (Lorraine) and father-in-law (Joe), who had purchased the cabin across the street. More recently she was a regular at the Tuesday concerts in the plaza that she would attend weekly with a large group of friends to eat, drink and be merry. Adrienne cherished family and friends more than anything. She stayed close with a large number of friends she accumulated through various stages of her life. She was always there to lend an ear, laugh, or a hug. Some of her favorite times were spent on vacation with family and friends at Camp Mather, Del Mar, Hawaii, and Italy. In her spare time Adrienne enjoyed playing card games, doing crossword puzzles and was an avid reader. Characteristic of her tremendous love of her family, Adrienne loved to babysit her niece Nicole's son Reo, and you could often find the two of them in her kitchen baking oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Adrienne loved to spoil all her family and friends with thoughtful gifts every chance she got. Her life was truly a gift to all those who knew her. She will be missed. Adrienne is survived by husband Joel; sons Dan, Nick, Andrew and daughter-in-law Minerva; sister, Marisa Mitchell; niece Nicole Mitchell, and her son Reo Mitchell; nephew Jonah Mitchell, his wife Beth, and their daughters Francesca, Valentina and Natalia Mitchell; and numerous other family. A memorial service is planned for Friday, October 7th at 11:00 am (reception to immediately follow) at the Villa Chanticleer, 900 Chanticleer Way, Healdsburg, CA 95448.

Potter, Caroline - Auburn, Ca  
Caroline Jeffress Potter 1915 - 2016 Born during the Panama Pacific Exhibition, Caroline Katherine Jeffress Potter died September 6 at the age of 101 of natural causes. She leaves behind her children, Caroline Hickson (Jim) and Barry Potter; four grand-children: Patricia Sussman (Dan), Katherine Hickson, Benjamin Hickson, and Katie Potter; and two great grand-daughters, Ariella and Lilah Sussman. She was caring step-mother to Donalee Boxler and Dal Potter Jr.; grandmother to their children: Jill, Tom, Sherry, Dal and David; great grandma to Alex and Jonah Hubbard, Alyssa and Madeline Clark, and Nelson Potter; and fondly regarded Aunt to all the Potter and Jeffress cousins. Her dearly loved brothers Jim and Raymond passed away over thirty years ago. Caroline's legacy was her teachings: to treat all people equally, forgive, and "learn to get along with everyone." One of her biggest gifts to us was to keep all of our family branches together regardless, and we enjoy the fruits of those relationships as we age. She will also be remembered for her determination, understated elegance, and great eye for interior design. Carol, as she was known most of her life, was a fourth generation Californian, born in Sacramento, spending her childhood in San Francisco. She attended Frank McCoppin, St. Rose Academy, and U.C. Berkeley in the days ferries plied the bay. Her fond memories included many trips to Treasure Island in 1939-1940 for the Golden Gate International Exposition; and countless drives to the Brockway cabin in the '30's to enjoy lake Tahoe in winter and summer. She loved school and knowledge, was an avid reader and later an artist. She learned to paint in her fifties and surprised the family with her terrific oils. She was married to Dalzell Potter, DDS for 53 years, with whom she lived in Hillsborough for twenty-five years, and retired to her beloved Lake Tahoe for another quarter century. Together she and Dal enjoyed traveling; expanding their appreciation of other cultures. This legacy she has passed to her children and grandchildren. Most recently Caroline lived at Eskaton in Grass Valley and at Almond Gardens in Auburn. She received loving care in her later years by the unsung heroes of our workforce that care for the very old. The whole family thanks those at Eskaton and Almond Gardens, as well as Sutter Hospice for their skill, and kindnesses shown to Caroline in her last years. Remembrances may be sent to your local Hospice or the The Tahoe Fund (PO Box 7124; Tahoe City, CA 96145).
