As a Freshman at Cal, Cynthia joined the Tri Delta Sorority and worked part time at the Administration Building throughout her college years. Cynthia met Norman Dyer soon after her first days at Cal. They were married at St John's Presbyterian Church on February 11,1954 followed by an evening reception at the Orinda Country Club. Four days later, the couple was off to Ft Lenard Wood Missouri where Lt Dyer would be stationed for the next eighteen months. Returning to the bay area, Cynthia graduated from Cal in 1958 with a degree in Economics. The Dyer's first house was in Lafayette followed by a Danville home big enough for their four children.

With her economics background, Cynthia was in charge of family property and financial matters plus hosting many parties for family, friends and neighbors. In 1992, they purchased and completely remodeled two apartments in Paris. This became a place where they would live for three months every year and provide a "base" for numerous European, North Africa, and Middle East excursions. A few years after her husband retired from Gentry Homes Ltd as CEO, the Dyer's returned to the bay area. They relocated to Tiburon in 2004 before settling in Napa and as a member of the Silverado Country Club. Private services will be held by the family and respectfully requests no flowers.

GRACIA RASOR BELL

Posted On September 22nd, 2015 -

$nameGRACIA RASOR BELL Gracia Rasor Bell, known as "Tutu" to her beloved grandchildren, passed away at her home in Walnut Creek, California on September 7, a day after her 88th birthday. Gracia grew up on a grape ranch near the town of Livingston, CA and would later regale her family with stories of her early years in the San Joaquin Valley. She told about her sweet horse Ruby, and her German pointer, Flush. Although she was an only child, her life was enriched and her vivid imagination fueled by books and by visits to and from relatives in the Bay Area. She attended Whitmer Elementary, Livingston High School and matriculated to Stanford University at the age of 16. She loved life on "the Farm"(Stanford) --where she was known as "Marty"-- and made many lifelong friends and met her future husband, Richard Eugene (Dick) Bell. They were married at the Stanford Memorial Chapel on September 14,1948, he an engineer with an MBA, and she an English major poised to teach. They lived first in LA, where Dick had been hired at Gilfillan. Gracia's first teaching job was in Compton, and she loved the challenge of it. Daughter Dana was born in 1952; Sara followed in 1954. In 1959, Dick was assigned to work on a project in Hawaii and the family moved to Honolulu where Gracia came to love and embrace the Hawaiian culture. In Honolulu Gracia was active in the League of Women Voters, the AAUW, and the Stanford Alumni Club. Aside from her family, the focus of her life in Honolulu was the Academy of the Pacific, a private high school where she served as teacher, counselor and development director over four decades. Gracia was an academic and an intellectual, but a small-town girl at heart. She was the consummate educator, turning every opportunity into an educational experience. She was fond of reminding her family in tough times that they came from "pioneer stock." To her children and grandchildren, this translated to: "Be tough. You come from ancestors who faced worse crises, so you canand you will-- handle this." Still, the message that came through clearest to her family was that they were loved, and that they were wonderful. Gracia is preceded in death by her husband, Richard. She is also preceded in death by Herman Silverman, who gave Gracia's later years interest and dimension and beloved dogs Shaunty and Shana. Gracia's family is grateful to Joan and JayR for the devoted care they provided in her last years. She is survived by daughters Dana and Sara, grandchildren Addison, Margo, Ben and Jordan and several nieces and nephews. Donations can be made in Gracia's name to the Animal Rescue Foundation of Walnut Creek, or to the Alzheimer's Association.

KENNETH KEMPER HOWELL Our baby brother - a thoughtful, quiet giant - lost his courageous battle with cancer on September 3, 2015. Born in Honolulu in 1962, Kenneth was the youngest of the five children of Jack and Gloria Howell. He grew up in Kalihi and was a graduate of Farrington High School. Kenneth was an ASE-Certified and State-licensed auto mechanic. He loved his work and was always willing to lend a hand with a broken car. He built and raced remote-controlled cars, enjoyed attending NASCAR races, and was a true video game master. A caring and "down to earth" kind of guy, he faced his illness with his usual positive and quiet resolve. When given a 50/50 chance of success for his last gamma knife procedure, he said "might as well chance 'um." Many thanks to the staff of Leahi Hospital for their professional and caring support. Thanks also to his longtime friends and co-workers who supported him during his life, especially through this difficult journey. Kenneth is survived by his sisters Dianna H. Gomes, Jacqueline H. (Francis) Oliveros, Mary H. (Stanley) Shimizu, and Christeen H. (Michael) Burnett, Gidget (his dog), many caring friends, uncles, aunties, nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, grand-nephews, and cousins.
