Santa Rosa native and long- time Plumas and Lassen County business woman 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 Fres- no, California as the middle child to Randolph and Marian, (Lovas) Johnson the family shortly thereafter moved to Santa Rosa where Kathy at- tended 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 s01d to Wells Fargo Mortgage. While conversing with friends on Fourth Street she struck the eye of a recent en- listee 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 unit- ed in Holy Matrimony at St. Rose Catholic Church in San- ta Rosa on Oct. 3, 1976. A year later following her husband in his career, the couple relocat- ed 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 fore- front of professional women in the funeral industry and showed many a male counter- part that a woman was just as good or better in all aspects of the profession. Kathy enjoyed traveling, es- pecially 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 accomplish- ments of her children espe- cially the fact that she was able to provide them with a college education, a dream she always wanted to obtain. In leaving Kathy leaves her husband John Fehrman, of Quincy; her loving children who were at her bedside con- tinually for the past seventeen days, Steven J. Fehrman and his wife Jennifer, of Penn Val- ley, Nicole A. (Fehrman) Taborski and her husband Jed, of Santa Rosa, and her baby, Ashley M. Fehrman, al- so of Santa Rosa; the jewels of her recent life, her grandsons Carter J. and Jackson J. Taborski, along with her sis- ter, Marianne "Annie" Pedro and her husband John and niece Vanessa Pedro, of Santa Rosa. A celebration of her life was held Saturday, March 23. An opportunity to express your condolences to the family is available online at fehrman- Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Laffer- ty and Smith Colonial Chapel. Interment will take place next to her mother and brother in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, in Santa Rosa. The family asks that any remembrances in Kathy's memory be made to the American Red Cross, 5297 Aero Drive, Santa Rosa, CA 95403. Richard E. Violett Richard E. Violett (Lt.

Lisa and Ed Oviatt Quincy CHP REPORT Main Street, Quincy, March 21 At approximately 10:45 a.m., Haley Gordon, 19, of Quincy was driving a 2004 Ford Escape southbound on Bradley Street in Quincy and was stopped at the north intersection with West Main Street (eastbound Highway 70) with her left turn signal activated, intending to turn left onto West Main Street in the No. 1 (left) !ane. Pamela Noel-MacMath, 64, of Quincy, was driving a 2012 Subaru Forester northbound on Bradley Street at the south side of the intersection with Main Street, intending to cross straight across Main Street. Noel-MacMath waited for cross traffic to clear the intersection and saw Gordon stopped on the opposite side of the intersec- tion. Noel-MacMath noticed that Gordon was taking no ac- tion, so she began to drive her Subaru through the intersec- tion. Gordon failed to notice that the Subaru had entered the intersection, and began turning her Ford left onto Main Street. The Subaru had crossed approximately three- fourths of the intersection when the left front corner of the Ford impacted with the left Side of the Subaru. After the collision, Gordon drove to the southeast corner of the inter- section, in front of Pizza Facto- ry, and Noel-MacMath pulled her vehicle to the northeast corner, on the west side of Quincy Drug. No injuries were reported by the drivers or Gor- don's passenger. Highway 70, March 21 At approximately 5:15 p.m., Linuo He, 39, of Quincy, was driving a 1999 Ford Taurus eastbound on Highway 70 ap- proaching Keddie Resort Road at a stated speed of 25 mph. He was a student driver with Sta- cie R. Berrie, 50, of Quincy, as her instructor in the right front seat. He began to crowd the double yellow line and Berrie told her to move over to the right and away from the lines. He turned the Taurus to the right and drifted off the roadway and onto the embank- ment on the south shoulder. The Taurus went up the em- bankment, struck a paddle marker and a French drain pipe. The vehicle then slowly and gently overturned onto its top and came to rest in the middle of the eastbound lane up-side down. Both women were wearing their seatbelts and escaped injury; however, He cut her wrists on broken glass as she was exiting the vehicle.
