Appleby-Klein, Sherry M.* - Yuma  
Sherry M. Appleby-Klein of Yuma, AZ passed away on Thursday, August 20, 2015. She was born on August 7, 1948 in Ogden, Utah to Roy and Dorothy Craner. Sherry began her career within the hearing aid industry in 1967. She was instrumental in the development of the exams that future Audiologists and hearing aid dispensers took to become certified. Sherry married Roger ""Buck"" Appleby in March of 1972 in Phoenix, AZ. They had 2 beautiful daughters, Tina and Glenda as well as a foster daughter named, Sheila Brooks. She moved to Yuma with her family in 1980 where she started her hearing aid business alongside her parents, known as Beltone and later branched off to become Hearing Aid Specialists. Sherry was the chair for the Arizona Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. She has received so many awards and accolades; to list them all is not possible. Sherry proudly traveled multiple times with Starkey on missions to other communities and countries to provide hearing services to the underserved. Sherry was blessed to find love twice in her life. Long after the passing of her husband, Buck she met Jerry Klein. The two were married in July of 2014. Despite her success within the hearing aid industry, her best quality and accomplishment was that of daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother. Sherry happily crocheted blankets as a hobby and joyfully gave them to family, closest friends, children and elderly people throughout Yuma and beyond. To all those that have received her loving warmth they can cuddle up and feel her hug for many years to come. Sherry is survived by her husband, Jerry Klein; daughters, Tina (Herb) Kiser and Glenda (Donny) Hazlett; foster daughter, Sheila Brooks; grandchildren, Bethany, Enya, Mackenzie and Gavin; brothers, Mike (Juanita) Craner, Greg (Pam) Craner, Brent (Pam) Craner and David (Rosa) Craner; as well as many aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Marge Gansberg died of natural causes on August 11th, 2015, surrounded by her family at the home of her son James in Klamath Falls, Oregon. She was 81 years old. Marjorie Ann Petty was born January 6, 1934 in Klamath Falls, Oregon, to Lyle and Mildred Petty. She grew up with her sister Barbara around the logging camps where her father worked before her mother settled in Klamath Falls. After losing her sister to a childhood disease, she found her independent strength that would become a life-long trait. She graduated from Klamath Union High School and then worked at Klamath Creamery and other local businesses. She married Clarence F. Gansberg in 1954 and brought up their three boys, James, Ronald, and Jeffrey. She focused on volunteering in the community and eventually got a degree in counseling. Later in life, she volunteered with the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program, sponsoring and advocating for abused and neglected children. In the late 1970's, she fell in love with the warmth and beauty of Brookings, Oregon, and put a mobile home on the Chetco River. After that, she followed the sun to Yuma Arizona, where she designed her dream house and lived out the rest of her life. Marge was an avid reader and bridge player, attaining National Master in the American Contract Bridge League. She loved living independently, with her cats for constant companionship. Stone masonry was her forte and she completed many brick and rock structures around her home throughout her life. Marge is survived by her three sons and seven grandchildren. According to her wishes, no memorial service is planned. In lieu of flowers, please send in memoriam donations to CASA for Children: National CASA Association 100 W.
