Beverly Rita Gallant, wife, mother, friend, community volunteer, accomplished traveler and sweets aficionado ascended into heaven on Thursday, December 5th.

Beverly was the only child of James and Lillian Healy born in Brooklyn, New York. She started her lifelong love of reading as a child and spent countless hours traveling to and from the New York Public Library via the subway all by herself. Her thirst for knowledge never ended. She earned her first Degree in Chemistry from New York State Tech. She was a gifted conversationalist and always had interesting commentary to share with her family, friends and Ascension Church book club.

She met the love of her life, Mark A. Gallant, through a friend who happened to be dating Mark's best friend Joe. They were married on August 12, 1950 at Holy Innocent Church in New York and honeymooned in Niagara Falls. Both growing up without siblings, Mark and Beverly were determined to have enough children for a family baseball team. They succeeded. Beverly was a devoted mother of 8 to Gregory, Raymond, Douglas, Jeffrey (deceased), Jeannette, Victor, Lillian and Vivian. She was a very proud grandmother and great grandmother who enjoyed many soccer, baseball, hockey and dance recitals. In search of a better place to raise a family, Mark and Beverly packed up their 3 young boys and moved west to California. Mark preceded her in death, 23 years ago, on February 15, 1990 after 39 years of marriage.

Beverly was a devout Catholic, a very active parishioner at the Church of the Ascension in Saratoga and a member of the parish since its inception in the Barn, 50 years ago. She used to open the Church for the 6:30am Mass, was a Eucharistic minister for the 5pm Mass for over 25 years and also brought the Eucharist to the homebound at the West Valley Convalescent Home now known as Amberwood. Beverly loved to learn and was an inspiration to all she met. While raising her children, she attended San Jose State University, earning her Bachelor's Degree in Health Science with Distinction as well as a Masters Degree in Health Science. She worked for Nabisco in Process Control in New York, Westinghouse Testing Services in Sunnyvale for 4 years and ESL/TRW in Sunnyvale for 13 years in the Health & Safety department. Retirement did not slow Beverly down. She loved to travel, see Broadway shows and spend time with family and friends. She was an enthusiastic volunteer for the Santa Clara Senior Center and got great pleasure from working with the staff and seniors. She also spent many years supporting the Red Cross and taught First Aid & CPR. Beverly was a lifelong artist. She painted, loved creating unique ceramic pieces and crocheting beautiful blankets. We were blessed to have her in our lives and we will forever treasure the time we had with her. Now she is at peace with the Lord, her husband and son. She will be dearly missed.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Beverly's name to the Hospice of the Valley who provided exceptional care and support during her last weeks of life or to the charity of your choice.

Services will be held on Wednesday, December 11th, 9:30am Rosary, 10:30am Funeral Mass at the Church of the Ascension on 12033 Miller Avenue in Saratoga. A lunch reception will be held at Church of the Ascension following the burial at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Los Altos.

Interment: Oak Hill Memorial Park, San Jose, CA.

Victor Valdez, 51, lay ecclesial minister and long-time catechetical leader who achieved Master Catechist status last year, died July 17, 2013. He had suffered for many years from the effects of recurring brain tumors.

Wendy Scherbart, Director of Catechetical Ministry for the Diocese of San Jose, said, "Over the 30 years I have known Victor, he has shown me how to put my trust in God. He lived with integrity and hope while carrying recurring health challenges."

"Victor chose to discern the will of God each day. He strived to do the will of God and now is fully united with God. I thank him for inspiring us with his courage and deep faith."

Scherbart said that Victor had just made his second trip to Lourdes in May with the Knights of Malta and that he was seeking peace. "He told me that the day he went to the baths he didn't want to hurry, but to be fully present to the experience."

"As he stepped through the waters, he felt sensations, the temperature, the placement of each foot, and he emerged feeling a deep peace," Scherbart said.

At Valdez's funeral Mass, July 24, at Santa Teresa Church, San Jose, Father Jose Antonio Rubio gave the homily, noting the Gospel reading, John 6: 37-40, "If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it."

Father Rubio said Victor "had recurring benign brain tumors and had 12 surgeries - some 13 hours - until they couldn't operate anymore. He had the tumors for more than half his life, but he did a lot in a life."

"Even as a boy Victor carried his cross. When he was born, an ear was partially developed and he endured a number of surgeries. When he was in grammar school, he was hit by a car, broke his hip and was in a cast for six months."

"Victor had a strong faith," Father Rubio said. "From his Mexican heritage he had great faith in Our Lady of Guadalupe, and he got strength from the writings and spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. After he was diagnosed with the tumors, he dedicated his life to God, working for the Church. He always paid attention to how God was working in his life."

Valdez worked at St. John Vianney, St. Athanasius, St. Denis (Menlo Park) as Director of Religious Education, at the University of Santa Clara as a resident minister in the dorms and with the alumni association. He planned retreats, gave talks and workshops at faith formation conferences in San Francisco, Santa Clara and Arizona.

Father Rubio said, "Victor carried his cross behind Jesus, but he carried his cross like Jesus. The cross of Jesus changed the universe and lead to resurrection, his resurrection, Victor's resurrection, our resurrection."

"Victor saw life as a pilgrimage. He liked to travel and went to Lourdes twice, to Fatima, and to Madrid for World Youth Day in 2011. He had been looking forward to WYD Brazil this year."

"When he returned from Madrid he wrote an article for The Valley Catholic recalling standing in rain all night and sleeping on cement. He quoted the very text that was tonight's Gospel reading, and he concluded: If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me."

Victor wrote, "I know the call of Jesus calls for total commitment requiring great sacrifice. What we experienced at World Youth Day was an opportunity to trust in the Lord who never abandons us. In an exhibit along a Madrid parkway, we saw life-size reproductions of the Stations of the Cross. It is through the cross that we are led to freedom."

"Free at last, Victor, free at last!" Father Rubio concluded.

He was a cowboy at heart and was always recognized for his cowboy boots and cowboy hats. He had a special love for horses and riding them with his granddaughter, Julianna. Jim's love and passion was always his family. He took great pleasure in continuing the traditional Sunday Family Dinner and was always the head chef at a table that continued to grow over the years as the size of his family did. He leaves a wonderful legacy of the true meaning and importance of family and is an inspiration to all who knew him.

Jim was also a published author of many poems and articles over the years culminating in his first novel "Dreamin' of Grass Valley" being published after receiving his lung transplant in June of 2008. To all who ever had the good fortune to meet him, he was a man of true grit with incredible knowledge, immense generosity and kindness, and a wonderful sense of humor. He always looked at life with a positive attitude and wore a smile in the toughest of situations.

He will be incredibly missed by his wife, Doris, three sons, Jimmy, Ryan, and Jason, three wonderful daughter-in-laws, nine grandchildren, two great grandchildren, his sister, Evelyn and her husband, Carl Fink.

And a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, "Come with Me."
With tearful eyes, we let you go
And saw you slip away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
Your precious heart stopped beating,
And hard working hands now rest.
God breaks our heart to prove to us
He only takes the best.

The Story of Sharon ...

Sharon Lee Rogge was born on August 18, 1954 in San Jose, California, to Gerald Zappelli and Norma Beneda. While attending South Hills Community Church, she met the love of her life, Dewey Rogge, and was later married in Tahoe on November 3, 1976. They were married for 36 years.

Sharon was a Dental Assistant for some years, but later became a Kindergarden teacher. This was where she thrived. She loved to encourage and nurture children. When she had children of her own she decided to be a stay at home mom, which was an incredible blessing to her children, Elizabeth and Dewey. When the children were older, Sharon worked as a Teacher Assistant at Achiever Christian School for many years. Later she was a substitute teacher for the Los Gatos Union School District.

Sharon loved people. She loved to serve people. She was the ultimate party planner--from school fundraiser, to Bible study potlucks to the BEST themed birthday parties a child could ever dream of. Sharon loved community. One of the most influential ways she served others was by making baby blankets for mothers-in-need, who were either abused or recovering addicts.

She loved music. She learned to play the guitar and wrote songs with her husband. She would constantly sing to her children and used it as a tool to teach them many things including verses from the Bible. Singing in the choir at Church of the Chimes brought so much joy and happiness to her life. Some of her favoirite music was recorded by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, and of cource her own son, Dewey Jr.

She loved th ocean. It was a place of peace and relaxation for her--a place where she felt colse to the Lord. Enjoying the beauty of the oceans and nearby beaches was one of her favorite past times with her husband and kids. This past year, she had the opportunity to visit most of her favorite beaches, both old and new, with her loving partner and husband, Dewey. She enjoyed looking for sand dollars and moonstones on the beach.

Sharon loved her Creator. She adored so many beautiful things around her that were masterfully designed by His hand. One of those creations was butterflies. On one occasion, a breath taking butterfly landed on her leg, and she pondered not only the amazing colors, but all that had to have happened in order for a caterpillar to be transformed into a butterfly. She knew that this was also true for human beings. Beauty often comes out of much struggle--this she knew well.

Sharon loved to read the Bible. The Word of God was a lamp unto her feet. She memorized it, meditated on it, shared it with others and believed it as the Truth for her life. She loved to talk about the things of the Lord, namely her blessed hope in Jesus Christ, which she knew would culminate in Heaven. Without a doubt, anyone who came in contact with Sharon would instantly come to know her absolute love for Jesus.

Share was a woman of deep faith. She was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and an encouraging friend. She truly left a legacy of God's love to all she met.

Sharon went to be with the Lord on April 17th, 2013. Preceded in death by her father, Gerald Zappelli. Survived by her husband, Dewey Rogge Sr.; children, Elizabeth and Dewey Jr.; mother, Norma Zappelli; siblings, Ronald Zappelli (brother), Laura Hoyt (sister) and Ken Zappelli (brother). Also survived by loving in-lawas, Karlene and Gerry Graham.

The void in our hearts that Sharon leaves behind is filled in the knowwledge that she is in heaven with God enjoying the presence of her beloved Jesus!

Dr. Theodore "Ted" Madsen Norton

Ted was born in Alameda, California on August 24, 1922. He passed away peacefully in Los Gatos, California on February 7, 2013 at the age of 90. Most of his life was spent living in Saratoga and Los Gatos. Ted was a World War II veteran serving in the U.S. Army from January 1944 to April 1946. He fought in the European theater and served as part of the Army of Occupation. Among other citations, he was awarded the Purple Heart.

He earned his BA in 1947 and LL.B. in 1949, both from Stanford University; he went on to earn his M.A. in 1955 and his Ph.D. in 1960, both from the University of Chicago.

Ted was a noted professor in the Department of Political Science at San Jose State University from the fall of 1960 to 1993 at which time he was awarded Emeritus status by SJSU President Robert Caret. Ted specialized in teaching Constitutional Law resulting in many students interested in becoming lawyers learning case law from Norton's course.

From 1963 until his retirement Ted was a very active member of the University's Academic Senate, chairing multiple committees; drafting more policies and resolutions than any other individual; serving as the Senate's unofficial parliamentarian and as its chair on two occasions; in 1970 and again in 1982. He continued to serve as an honorary senator after his retirement and in 1992 wrote a comprehensive history of the senate. He also authored "Police Power, Planning and Aesthetics" (1967) and was co-editor of "Studies in Socialist Pedagogy" (1979).

Ted enjoyed travelling, gardening and reading. He was a member of the California State Bar Association, served on the Planning Commission for the City of Saratoga and was an active member of the Saratoga Men's Club. He is survived by his niece, Anne Norton Ayer and his two nephews, Robert Rule and Steven Rule, two grandnephews, two grandnieces, a great-grandniece and several cousins. The family has planned a memorial service for one o'clock in the afternoon on Saturday, March 23, 2013 at Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church in Saratoga, California. There will be a brief reception following the service.

In lieu of flowers the family asks that remembrances of Ted be made to the "SJSU Political Science Faculty Endowment" or the "SJSU T.M. Norton Campus Enhancement Fund" in care of San Jose State University. You may make your gift online at www.sjsu.edu/giving/, or by check payable to the SJSU Tower Foundation, and sent to the Tower Foundation of San Jose State University, One Washington Square, San Jose, CA 95192-0257.
