JURS, Doris Marie Jurs, August 2, 1925 – July 4, 2012. Loving mother, grandmother and friend, Doris was predeceased in death by her husband, Russell, and son, Fred. She is survived by her loving daughter Virginia and her partner Ella; and her granddaughter, Haley. She always greeted everyone with a kind smile and was interested in everything going on around her. She was loved by many, particularly her caregivers, Cinthia and Veronica. Doris was a selfless, spirited and strong woman, determined to enjoy life until the heavens welcomed her. She will be greatly missed and always remembered. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

MENK, Florence “Tobi", born April 20, 1914 in Hancock, New York to Elizabeth Knight and Eugene Woodmansee, Tobi died on July 7, 2012. A long-time resident of the Castro Valley area, Tobi was predeceased by her husband, Frank Menk, and son, Raymond Tobey, Jr. She is survived by her son, James DeSilva; daughter-in-law, Donna Tobey; sister-in-law, Betty Woodmansee; grandchildren, Michael, Michelle, Sheila, Nancy, Natalie and Sean; great-grandchildren, Caedyn, Andy, Jaya, Xochitl, Sita and Byron; as well as numerous extended family. She will be deeply missed at the Kenneth C. Aitken Senior and Community Center in Castro Valley, where she was a long-time volunteer, inveterate bingo caller and avid card player (ranging from bridge to poker to pinochle to blackjack, with a little dominoes thrown in for good measure!) She will be remembered for her artistic skills, which spanned ceramics, porcelain doll-making, painting, knitting and crocheting. Her talents were many, but her ability to build and maintain lasting friendships was without peer, as was her boundless love for her family.
