Dimmitt, whom she met at a USO event shortly after WWII. They were married for 70 years prior to his passing in 2016. She had six kids and started the lifelong journey of parenting when she was 20 years old and had her last child at age 40. Her priority in life was first and foremost to be a good wife and mother. Her active parenting was soon followed by grandparenting and great-grandparenting. Family was everything to her. She looked forward to each and every holiday family gathering, each and every birthday, and life milestone. She was always joyful about the next event, and loved recapping the last event. One might say that her 92 years were full of life and love. She walked for the March of Dimes door to door through her neighborhood in the early 50's when her 5 year old and 3 year old boys lay in the hospital in isolation with polio during her young adulthood. Later in life she was a behind the scenes supporter of younger family members. Claudia Mae Dimmitt, always remembered, never to be forgotten.

Claudia was preceded in death by her husband Clyde Dimmitt.

She is survived by her daughter, Carolyn Woodcox (Larry) of Orinda, CA; her sons, Thom Dimmitt (Julie) of Pismo Beach, CA, Steven Dimmitt (Barbara) of Ben Lomond, CA, Jeff Dimmitt of San Jose, and Eric Dimmitt of Maryville, TN; her grandsons, Michael Sargenti, Marc Woodcox (Jessica), Jonathan Woodcox (Kate), Evan Dimmitt, and Levi Mentz (Rachel); her granddaughters, Dakota Phillips, Erika Dimmitt, Skylar Mentz, Hayley Mentz, and Shawna Woodcox; her great-grandchildren, Kyle, Karson, and Mary Woodcox, Avery Wellington, Jaxstin and Charlee Jean Mentz, Scarlet and Harlan Mentz, Forest Turner, and MacKenzie Owens; and her brother-in-law, Lee Dimmitt (Connie) of San Jose.

A Celebration of Life will be held at South Broadway Baptist Church in Pittsburg, KS on Saturday, April 20 at 10:30 a.m. with the Rev. Dan Moss officiating. The family will receive friends after the service, with burial to follow in the Garden of Memories Cemetery.

Juanita was born in Baxter Springs, KS on June 15, 1925, the daughter of Mabel Phillips Hardy and Clifford Hardy. She graduated from high school in Riverton, KS in 1942 as valedictorian and was hired as private secretary to the chief engineer during the building of the Jayhawk War Plant near Crestline, KS. She then worked in Ohio in the same capacity for Aluminum Co. of America, the first war plant to earn the Army-Navy E for excellence in war production.

Returning home, she continued her studies in business and finance at Pittsburg State University.

Juanita met her future husband, Ralph Jopp, in November 1943 while he was stationed at Camp Crowder near Neosho, MO. They were married at Ft. Monmouth, NJ, February 17, 1945 after his return from the war in the Pacific.

They resided in Baxter Springs, KS from 1949-1961. They had two daughters, Linda and Sherry. An accomplished seamstress, Juanita enjoyed sewing dresses for them throughout their school years. She never missed a school activity or sporting event of her children and grandchildren.

A Pittsburg resident from 1961 to 2015, she was employed by the Jones Department Store office for several years until the store closed in 1974. A devoted daughter, she provided support and care for her mother who lived in Joplin until her death in 1985.

Juanita was an active member of South Broadway Baptist Church where she participated in the women’s auxiliary and was a Bible School teacher. Memberships were held in the Farm Bureau, the American Business Women’s Association, the Christian Women’s Club, where she enjoyed her Bible study group, and the Sunflower Kiwanis Club. She formed a Sewing Circle of neighborhood friends which met for nearly 40 years. She also derived joy from being a Girl Scout leader and mentoring students at Lakeside School to help them become better readers.

Juanita’s abiding commitment was to the Mt. Carmel/Via Christi Auxiliary. She volunteered for 29 years and served 6500 hours as a Pink Lady in the Gift Shop.

Juanita loved to travel and was proud to visit all 50 states with her husband. They also drove across Canada several times. At age 70, she obtained her first passport and during the next decade traveled to Europe many times with her daughters, as well as taking Caribbean, Mediterranean and Alaskan cruises.

In 2015, Juanita moved to an independent senior living community near her daughter, Linda, in San Jose. Except for profoundly missing her Kansas family, she was able to enjoy life to the fullest until the end, maintaining an active interest in current events and engaging in the social life of her living community. She was devoted to her family, generous, courageous, and she made friends wherever she went.

Juanita was preceded in death by her husband in 1989, her parents, and a brother, Dr. Clifford Hardy. She is survived by her daughters, Linda Goytia of San Jose, CA and Sherry Turnbull and husband Mark of Pittsburg; a brother, Dr. Glenn Hardy of Fayetteville, AR; and a sister, Mary Blanchard of Santa Cruz, CA. Other survivors are three grandchildren, Valerie Turnbull Frounfelter and husband, Trevor, of Joplin, MO; Jared Turnbull and wife, Rebecca, of Pittsburg; and Chad Goytia and wife Sarah of Santa Cruz, CA; and 7 great-grandchildren: Jackson, Nolan, Hayden, Weston, and Channing Turnbull, and Landon and Scarlett Frounfelter; and many nieces and nephews.

Bud was born in Lakota, North Dakota on February 16, 1935 to Clarence and Agnes Lien, joining his older sister, Clarine. The young Lien family soon relocated to Crookston, Minnesota, where he attended local schools and until his enlistment in the US Air Force in 1953. After honorably completing his service to his country, Bud began his career at automobile dealers in Crookston and Minneapolis. He was then prompted by a former co-worker and friend to accept a position at San Jose Ford in 1961. Soon thereafter he accepted another positon at Joe Kerley Lincoln Mercury where his career would span 43 years until his retirement in 2005. It was in the early years in San Jose that he and Agnes (nee Koolstra), also originally from Crookston, were married. They were blessed with three sons.

Bud served his church family at SJCRC for over 55 years in many capacities: greeter, coffee server, youth leader, custodian, building & grounds committee member, deacon and elder. Bud’s faith was prominent in how he lived his life. His prayer for family and friends was that they too would come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. Romans 8:1-17.

Bud is survived by his wife Agnes and three sons, Jeff (Paige), Mike (Laura) and Ken. He is also survived by five beloved granddaughters, Clara, Briana, Aubrey, Cassidy and Amanda, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, and nine nieces and nephews. Bud was predeceased by his parents and sister.

Interment of Cremated Remains: Private.

Ted was born in Portland, OR on April 1, 1939 to Leonard Henry Gehrke and Eugenia (Taylor) Gehrke. He spent his youth as an "Army brat" as his father was transferred around the US during World War II.

In his early adult years he lived in New York City and managed several emerging jazz and rock bands, their concerts and tours (US and Europe) and record albums. He married Elizabeth Turner in 1967 and in 1968 they moved to the SF Bay area. In 1972 he became the Student Union Program Board Advisor at San Jose State University, where he guided a student board on the booking and producing of music and other arts acts. He later ran the Student Union Art Gallery.

In 1981 he inaugurated, with Rick Bates and the Program Board, the San Jose State Fountain Blues Festival - now called the San Jose Fountain Blues and Brews Festival - which has had an (almost) continual annual run in downtown San Jose. He continued to be a very vocal and real supporter of San Jose State University and the City of San Jose.

He was an accomplished poet, an excellent golfer, and a contributing member of his Redwood Estates community where he and his family have lived for 46 years. One of his proudest successes as a member of RE Water Board was helping to stop part of the Santa Cruz mountains from logging.

He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; twin daughters, Lucia Arredondo and Sierra Gehrke; daughter Crystal Hoffman; and by his twin granddaughters, Evangeline "Eva" Belle Arredondo and Josephine "Josie" Jane Arredondo. On behalf of Ted and the family, to continue his legacy of the Fountain Blues and Brews Festival, remembrance donations can be made to the non-profit Festival at www.fountainblues.com. Also, please support this year's 38th annual event by attending Saturday, June 22nd, 2:00-8:00 PM at Cesar Chavez Park.

He will mostly be remembered as a mentor to young people, an enthusiastic promoter of all music and the arts, a raconteur, as well as a loving and devoted father and husband. Here was a man who truly reveled in his family, friends and community. A Memorial Gala is to take place Saturday, March 30. Please email Elizabeth at TedGmemory@gmail.com for details. Another special tribute/fundraiser will take place at a later date at the Poor House Bistro. Check www.fountainblues.com for details.
