Kristine Susan Cavaille Kristine Susan Cavaille was born Jan. 5, 1949, in Quincy. She died unexpect- edly in Chico on June 18, 2011. Kristy and her family, in- cluding her aunt, uncle and cousins, lived in Cromberg until midway through the third grade. The two families operated the general store, post office and cabin rentals in Cromberg. Kristy, being the only girl out of six children, learned to shoot a basketball and catch and hit a baseball as well, and perhaps better, than her brothers and cousins. In 1957 she moved with her family to Blairsden and at- tended Portola Elementary School. Her years in the Portola school system were fruitful and enjoyable. She was an ex- cellent student who enjoyed many friends and in 1967 Kristy was crowned Home- coming Queen for' Portola High School. She was physi- cally active and was consid- ered one of the better skiers/racers at the Johns- ville Ski Hill. Skiing came nat- urally to her with a style that was easy and effective. She successfully competed in sev- eral races. Kristy attended Chico State later that year but be- cause of ongoing physical ailments that stayed with her until her death, she moved to the Bay Area to work. With a new group of friends, she left the states to tour Europe. She stayed and worked in Switzerland for over a year and visited sev- eral European countries. Up- on her return to the United States, she again worked in the Bay Area and then on to Sacramento, Indian Valley and Mohawk Valley. Kristy had many talents and enjoyed artistic endeav- ors such as sketching, paint- ing, woodworking and pho- tography. Over the last 30 years she suffered from chronic arthri- tis, back problems and heart irregularities. On Saturday, June 18, she died of heart failure. Kristy is survived by her mother, Helen, and her two brothers, Edward and Michael. She was an aunt to Brodie and Tanner Cavaille. She was preceded in death by her father, Rene Cavaille. Kristy is, and will always be, dearly missed. Mary Ann Gart0n Mary Ann Garton died June 24, 2011. She was born the only daughter of Alta Rowena (Sanderson) and Au- gust Jasper Lohman on Sept. 15, 1938, in Bakersfield, Calif.

Mary Ann loved the out- doors and, together with her family and friends, camped, fished, hunted, rode snow- mobiles and helped her fami- ly grow in the snow covered mountains. She was a mem- ber of the original 49er Ski Club and made frequent weekend trips to the Old Yu- ba Pass and Johnsville ski resorts, often helping out in the local competitions. She was a 4-H leader, and pa- tiently and lovingly taught the local children. Mary Ann learned to play piano at an early age and their home was always filled with music and children. She later became a teacher and tutor for those with learning disabilities at Sier- raville Elementary School. She loved her job and the special people she worked with. Later she married Doug Garton and together they ran a fishing and camp- ing business and lived year- round at Webber Lake. She was an excellent marksman and equipment operator and enjoyed the challenge of Webber country. Mary Ann is survived by her husband, Doug Garton; sons Eddie and Chuck Hall; daughter Dixie Lee and son- in-law Robert Higgins; granddaughters Katie, Jen- nifer, Bailey and Karly; and great-grandson Alex.
