Bessey, Roscoe H. Bessey

Source:  The Visalia [California] Times Delta; Thursday, June 1, 2000

       CORCORAN - Longtime Kings County civic leader, Roscoe H. Bessey, 94, went home to be with our Lord on Monday, May 29, 2000. Roscoe was born March 7, 1906, in Codel, Kan., the oldest of 13 children. He moved with his family, at the age of 11, to Strathmore. Roscoe had a full life surrounded by many friends and family.

       He graduated from Fresno State College, where he was captain of the undefeated 1930 football team. After obtaining his teaching credential at the University of California, Berkeley, Roscoe began his career as coach and teacher at Corcoran High School. He met Bea Burtner who became his loving wife for 53 wonderful years until her passing. Together they had three children; Donald Bessey of Hayward; Joan Lusk of McMinnville, Ore.; and Stanley Bessey, now living in Albuquerque, N.M.

       Roscoe is also survived by his dedicated and loving wife of eight years, the former Mabel McGahan of Hanford; two grandsons, Sterling Lusk and toddler Adam Roscoe Bessey; and his brothers and sisters, Corky of Walnut Creek, Ray of Porterville, Ronald of Porterville, Doreen* Landers of Tulsa Okla., Elaine Frodsham of Oxnard, and Nadine Hardaway of Lebec. He was preceded in death by his brothers Jay Bessey of Strathmore and Gerald Bessey of Oroville.

       Between outstanding careers as coach, teacher and athletic director at Corcoran High School, Roscoe farmed and raised dairy cattle for more than 20 years. After retirement, Roscoe enjoyed his hobby of breeding Llamas for pets and pack animals.

       Roscoe’s entire life was exemplified by a willingness to serve in his community and give to others. He served as president of the following organizations: Kings County Teacher’s Association, Kings County Farm Bureau, Kings County T.B. Association and Corcoran Rotary Club. He served on the board of directors of the Kings County YMCA, Sequoia Lake YMCA, Tulare Lake Soil Conservation District, Tulare Lake Drainage District, Consolidated Milk Producers Association, Dairy Herd Improvement Association, Corcoran Irrigation District, California Farm Bureau Marketing Association, and High Sierra Stock Users Association. He was a member of the Beet Growers Association, Kings County Agriculture Committee, Boswell Scholarship Committee, Kings County Farm Bureau Sales Yard Committee, Kings County Society and the Llama Growers Association. He also served at trustee for the Corcoran Unified School District and the First Methodist Church.

       It is no wonder that he was voted Kings County Citizen of the Year in 1958 and Corcoran Man of the Year in 1977.

       Roscoe has been honored many times for his generosity and giving spirit, but one of his greatest joys has been to be honored by the CHS basketball team at every home game for the last several years. When the players and coaches ran onto the court upon being introduced they continued to run up into the stands to shake Roscoe’s hand and get a word of encouragement.

       Roscoe had a passion for exploring the sierra with his family and friends for weeks at a time on his pack horses and mules. He has endless tales of his adventures, which started when he packed as a young boy with little more than a blanket, fishing pole and frying pan. He was instrumental in starting the High Sierra Stock Users Association.

       Roscoe also raised heifers for the Heifer Project, which helped underdeveloped countries in South America. He and Bea had memories of sharing a small cargo plane with 40 heifers as they transported them all the way to Guatemala.

       Roscoe’s family and friends are so happy that he was able to live out his life the way he wanted - working and relaxing on the Bessey Ranch in the community he loved. He will be dearly missed by all.

       A private family graveside service will be at the Corcoran Cemetery. A memorial service celebrating his life will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Corcoran Methodist Church.

       Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society or your favorite charity.

Former   Petaluma   resident

        Born in Medford, Ore., July 29, 1945, Ms. Webber took her own life Jan. 22, 2000, after a long struggle with schizophrenia.  Her first 20 years were good and filled with adventure and prospect, but then her life began to crumble.

        Like other victims of schizophrenia, she had to adapt to the extremes of her disease, and was often frustrated and bewildered by what was happening to her.  Because of the many advances in science over the past decades, however, her later years were much improved.

        She will be remembered for her sunny and outgoing manner.  A 1964 graduate of Petaluma High School, Ms. Webber lived in Petaluma until 1994, then moved to Santa Rosa.

        She was the daughter of Emma Latta Webber of Petaluma and the late James Morgan Webber, and the sister of James Morgan Webber Jr. and Laura Webber Pierce, both of Petaluma, and the late John Arthur Webber.

        The family requests donations to the Petaluma Kitchen, 301 Payran st.

        Coast Guard crews found the body of a Petaluma woman floating in San Francisco Bay on Saturday and believe she probably jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge.

        Crews came across the body of 54-year-old Mary Irene Webber less than a mile southwest of Alcatraz around 2 p.m., said Marin County coroner Gary Erickson.  Employees working on the birdge saw a woman matching Webber's description on the bridge around 9 a.m., he said.

        When they rode out to try and talk to her, she had disappeared.  The bridge was crowded with tourists and employees, but no one reported seeing anyone jump or fall, Erickson said.

        Investigators have not yet determined a cause of death, he said.
