ELIZABETH VIRGINIA BARCLAY peacefully passed away on April 30, 2015. She was 93 years old. Born to Kyle and Ruth Wright in Geary Oklahoma on August 27, 1921, she was the eldest of six children. Elizabeth's parents owned a grocery store where all the kids would work after school, so the family always had plenty to eat while growing up in Oklahoma during the Great Depression. Elizabeth was a very good high school basketball player. Elizabeth was very proud of a medal she won for making the most free throws in a statewide competition, 23 of 25. She enjoyed shooting free throws with her three sons and beating them well into her forties. After high school she attended Oklahoma State but during her junior year, World War II broke out. She quit school and briefly worked at a B-17 repair station in Tinker Field before joining the W.A.A.C. After the war she met and married Jonny Gilliam and they started a dry cleaning business in Cyril Oklahoma in 1945. ln 1953 Jonny, Elizabeth and their three sons moved to Weed California. Elizabeth worked at the box factory, the Weed Mercantile and was the Weed Elementary School Librarian before retiring in 1970. Jonny died in 1968 and Elizabeth met Carl Barclay while bowling at Cedar Lanes Bowling Alley in Weed. They married April 10, 1971 and lived there until Carl's retirement from lnternational Paper Co. Elizabeth and Carl moved to Alsea Oregon in 1981 and lived there until 1988 when they moved to Willow Creek to be closer to family. Elizabeth was preceded in death by her parents Kyle and Ruth Wright, her brother Kyle "Sonny" Wright, her sister Helen Yeager, her husband Jonny Gilliam, and Preston Nelms (father of Phil). Elizabeth is survived by her husband of 44 years Carl Barclay of Willow Creek, Ca., son Phillip Nelms (Linda) of Woodland Ca., son Kyle Mac Gilliam (Lola) of Gazelle, Ca., son Rod Gilliam (Linda) of Willow Creek, Ca., her brother Joe Wright of Santa Fe, New Mexico, her brother Steve Wright (Wanda) of Mustang, Ok., her sister Sue Carel (Bobby) of Tuttle, Ok., 10 grandchildren, and 23 great-grandchildren.

Baird, Georgia Lea  
SUE BAIRD Georgia Lea Baird always known as "Sue", 85 years old, died in her sleep with her loved ones continually by her side, giving her last breath the morning of May 5, 2015. Sue was born to Fornadia "Pat" and George McKeehan on April 11, 1930 in Chattanooga, Tennessee; raised in New Mexico and onto California. She was blessed with two sisters: Lucy "Tito" Stipek and Whetonia "Toni" Orsenico. She was married at a young age to Neal Oester and was living in Santa Ana when the Flood of '64 in Humboldt County was all over the news. When the decision was made to uproot her family and make a move for a new life change, she packed up everything along with her three teenage children and headed for the unknown. She never looked back. She went to school and received her Real Estate License and then her Brokers License. She went to work for Campton Heights Realty and was soon joined by her sister Lucy Stipek. In 1970 Sue established Six Rivers Real Estate. She went on to become Red Carpet SRRE where her daughter Debi August joined her and finally Coldwell Banker SRRE where her other daughter Rhonda Meehan joined her. She succeeded where others failed. Some may remember her driving her Red Cadillac and the many Real Estate Floats she entered during the Rodeo Parades and events in the town of Fortuna. She was a member of Humboldt County Association of Realtors since 1967. Sue earned the distinction and honor of being a CAR Member-for-Life and a NAR Realtor® Emeritus. She also held the prestige of being named Realtor of the Year, President of the Board of Realtors and California Association of Realtors as region one chair for Humboldt and Del Norte Counties. She also started the MLS tour in Fortuna back in the 70's. She loved Fortuna and saw no reason her City should be left out. She along with a couple other Business Ladies started the Soroptimist International of Eel River Valley and became a life-time member. She was a member of the Fortuna Planning Commission for several years. She met, fell in love and married Harvey Baird in November of 1971. He taught her how to swim in the ocean and pluck abalone off the rocks. He took her hunting for deer and chucker's. They went camping where she came to the conclusion that her way of roughing it was a hotel with a black and white tv set. They loved taking long drives into the mountains looking for deer and other animals. Just being together were their special times. She loved to collect antiques and dolls. She enjoyed decorating her window at home with her dolls for the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, Autorama, Rodeo, Halloween, etc. She had the dolls and the props for all occasions. People from all over looked forward to seeing her displays. She was always there for her family. She worried about them and prayed for them. She was and she will always be loved and adored. No one was more proud of her than her husband and family. She was preceded in death by her sisters and parents. She lost her son James Charles Oester while he was in the Service for Our Country in 1968 at the age of 21. A part of her died with him and they are finally together now. She leaves behind her husband Harvey Baird who will miss her dearly; her daughters Rhonda Meehan and Deborah August husband Paul, all from Fortuna; grandchildren Tonya Horvath, Yvonne Roberts, James Roberts, Wendy Medders, Bill Dobberstein, Tracy Singleton, 15 great-grandchildren and 2 great- great-grandchildren. She is also survived by two nieces Chonnie Yochum and Shelly Warriner and one nephew Danny Stipek, several great-nieces and nephews all who loved her; step children Jesse Baird, Colley Baird wife Phillis, Griff Baird wife Wonda, Tana Bryan husband Jerry; grandchildren Jocelyn Baird, Colleen Baird, Jeremy Baird, Kindra Quinton, Alex Gray-Baird, Chandler Baird, Austin Baird, Jordan Baird, YouJay Baird, Keely Baird and Fame Baird, 14 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchildren.

Brown, James Arnold  
JAMES ARNOLD BROWN James known as "Mooch" was hatched April 11, 1952 in Long Beach, California. Mooch passed away May 12, 2015. He is predeceased by his parents James Earl Brown and Carolyn Edith Davis-Brown. Mooch had two brothers Donald H. and Terrance J. Brown. We will miss and forever love our uncle: Greg and Todd Brown, Bridgett, Brooke, and Brittany Brown, Terry Jr., Zack, and Alishia Brown and 20 plus nephews and nieces. Mooch was very active and supported his brothers work with the Vietnam Veterans and "Rolling Thunder." Dip net fishing at Ishi Pish Falls as a clubber for his older brother was very near and dear to him as a man and he helped his brother with projects with Dr. Jane Goodall. His real love was getting to and watching his family complete in various sporting events. As an Indian Stick Player Coach he helped Terry and Zack become some of the best Indian Stick Players on the Klamath River. Mooch along with his brother was one of the best "Jump Center" dancers in his day. That's how "Kottomein Thunder" got started in 1975. He was not a bad "Arrow Shooter" either. He was always trying to edge "NG" by getting close to the target. He also enjoyed his tunes, UFC, the Raiders when they were winning, and the Washington Redskins. Mooch cared for many folks on the River. He was very close to Shirley L. Brown, Christine Brown, and Lisa Sundberg-Brown. A special blessing to his sister-in-law Sherian Prince of Petaluma, California. A grave site burial will be held at the Davis-Brown Allotment 1 mile north of the General Somes Bar Store - US Post Office at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday May 21, 2015.
