Kathlene Marie (Johnson) Fehrman
Rest in peace. We love you.
Santa Rosa native and longtime Plumas and Lassen county businesswoman and Quincy resident Kathlene Marie (Johnson) Fehrman, with her children at her side, left us to join her mother and brother in the care of our Lord Sunday night, March 17, 2013, at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.
Born April 22, 1953 in Fresno, Calif. as the middle child to Randolph and Marian (Lovas) Johnson, the family shortly thereafter moved to Santa Rosa where Kathy attended and graduated from St. Rose Elementary and later from Santa Rosa High School as a member of the Class of 1971. She went on to attend Santa Rosa Junior College while also working for North Bay Mortgage Company (later sold to Wells Fargo Mortgage.)
While conversing with friends on Fourth Street, she struck the eye of a recent enlistee in the Army, John Fehrman. She called, wrote those letters any veteran could appreciate and visited during leaves from Viet Nam and Germany. Following his discharge, the couple was united in holy matrimony at St. Rose Catholic Church in Santa Rosa on Oct. 3, 1976. A year later, following her husband in his career, the couple relocated to Salinas where she worked for Wells Fargo as an assistant operations manager at their auto loan center.
In 1978, shortly after having her first child, she and John moved to the Northeastern California community of Greenville where the couple purchased the funeral homes in Greenville, Chester and Westwood, and in 1990 moved to Quincy with the business expansion.
Family was always first and foremost in Kathy’s life whether it be caring for her husband and children or her mother and brother, Kathy was always able to juggle the life of a business owner and mother. She was at the forefront of professional women in the funeral industry and showed many a male counterpart a woman was just as good or better in all aspects of the profession.
Kathy enjoyed traveling, especially had a love of the ocean, liked a good meal out and, in just the last couple of years, became enamored with her two grandsons. She took great pride in the accomplishments of her children, especially the fact she was able to provide them with a college education, a dream she always wanted to obtain.
Kathy leaves her husband John Fehrman, of Quincy; her loving children who were at her bedside continually for the last 17 days, Steven J. Fehrman and his wife, Jennifer, of Penn Valley, Nicole A. (Fehrman) Taborski, and her husband, Jed, of Santa Rosa, and her baby, Ashley M. Fehrman, also of Santa Rosa; the jewels of her recent life, her grandsons, Carter J. and Jackson J. Taborski; along with her sister, Marianne “Annie” Pedro, and her husband, John; and niece, Vanessa Pedro, of Santa Rosa.
A celebration of her life was held Saturday, March 23, 2013. An opportunity to express your condolences to the family is available online at fehrmanmortuary.com.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Lafferty and Smith Colonial Chapel. Interment will take place next to her mother and brother in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, in Santa Rosa. The family asks any remembrances in Kathy’s name be made to the American Red Cross, 5297 Aero Drive, Santa Rosa, CA 95403.

Joy Lynne Harrison
Joy Lynne Harrison was called to our Lord on March 19, 2013 at Renown Hospital in Reno, Nev. Although Joy’s passing causes pain and sorrow, her going has eased her pain and gave her relief.
Joy was born in San Diego, Calif. on Dec. 16, 1952 to Harold and Louise Wooldridge. Her family moved to Susanville from Tehachapi, Calif. in 1963. She was a graduate of Lassen High School in 1971 and received her associate’s degree from Lassen College in 1973 and pursued a career in the medical field. Joy met the love of her life, George, after high school and they were married in 1972. In 1986, they were blessed with the birth of their only child, Katelyn, and further blessed 24 years later with the birth of their only grandchild, Aylah. It is with this family and many dear friends Joy spent her life. She liked hiking, motorcycle riding and the great outdoors. A cherished activity was the annual family camp in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Joy would eagerly plan and prepare the family for their annual pilgrimage and upon returning from camp Joy would exhibit a rejuvenated bounce in her step and sparkle in her eye. To those who knew her, those times were very special. Jo asked nothing from others yet she gave of herself totally and unabashedly. It is very uplifting to know that someone very special was being invigorated spiritually so that her soul and ours could be uplifted. Joy gave of herself unselfishly and without condition to those of us fortunate to know her. She had a simple way about her that would convey a felling of warm-heartedness and ease to whomever she me. She had a creative side that gave her many hours of enjoyment, which also provided many hours of delight to those who were graced by one of her hand-crafted gifts. Every one of Joy’s endeavors was ensconced with a Christian ethic that embodies only the truest of spirits. Joy had those finest of human traits. She was the embodiment of love and compassion to everyone she came into contact with. She had the empathy to make everyone she touched feel at ease, and to feel at peace with their life’s choices. Joy will be missed.
Joy is survived by her husband of 40 years, George, daughter, Katelyn Anne Harrison, and granddaughter, Aylah Louise Harrison, all of Susanville; sister, Marjorie Schuessler, of Borego Springs, Calif.; brother, Harold Dean Wooldridge, of Sacramento, Calif.; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Joy was preceded in death by her parents, Harold and Louise Wooldridge.
Please come join family and friends for a celebration of life at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 6, 2013 at the Community Church of Susanville, 1400 Numa Road in Susanville. Any donations on Joy’s behalf may be directed to Redwood Christian Park, 15000 Two Bar Road, Boulder Creek, CA 95006 or send a gift in her name to your favorite charity.
As long as Joy has the love of each one of you; she will live her life in the hearts of all of us.
