Raymond was the son of John and Gladys (Myers) Shaeffer. He was born on July 8, 1916 and he recently celebrated his lOOth birthday. On No- vember 16 he celebrated his 75th wedding anni- versary with Yolanda, the love of his life. Raymond's wife and family were his greatest blessings. Raymond gradu- ated from Roseville High School in 1934 and from Davis College of Agricul- ture in 1936. He worked for Golden State and Foremost Dairies for 35 years. Upon retirement he worked part time for Bremer Hardware in Gridley. Raymond lived his life following the teach- ings of his faith and liv- ing the Boy Scout Code of Honor. He was an Eagle Scout, and as and adult he served as a scoutmas- ter for Troop 26 and an assistant scoutmaster for Troop 29. He helped or- ganize a yearly Boy Scout Jamboree in the Sutter Buttes.

He was a member of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the Italian Catholic Federation, and a past governor and life member of the Moose Lodge. Raymond loved to hunt, fish, garden and travel. He also spent time farming on the fam- ily ranch in the Sutter Buttes. He and Yolanda visited all fifty states and went on many memo- rable cruises and trips abroad. Raymond was pre- ceded in death by his son Ryan. He is survived by his wife Yolanda, sons Tyrone (Ardene) of Yuba City; Gary (Ruth) of Clo- vis and Rodney (Che- rie) of Anderson; seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

Later on we heard the Rhur Valley in Ger- many had been heavily bombed. The Germans were behind the dam working on a more destructive bomb to deliver over England. The English or rather I should say one Colonel in the R.A.F., was building a bouncing bomb. Colo- nel Bader had already lost a limb in a raid, nothing stopped him from flying. The day had come for the bomb to be delivered. The Colonel of course was to deliver it. He let it go facing the Rhur Dam. It bounced perfectly, went straight into the dam, a great success, completely demolishing it. A great day for Colonel Bader and the English. AT 2:00 This month's musical variety program will in- clude Soloists Bob Dove, Susan Stone and Fred Rug- giero and Dan Gates on the Pipe Organ and Piano. The program will be Tuesday, December 13, 2016 from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. (Coffee and snacks at 3:00) This program will be presented to the elementary students at 1:20 p.m., at the Riehvale Church, 5219 Church Street, Riehvale CA. Refreshments will be served at 3 p.m. General Information: The Pipe Organ was installed in the Riehvale Church over 60 years ago. Those of us who attended there over the years enjoyed great music. In recent years the Pipe Organ was not used often and began to fall into disrepair. About ten years ago, Dan Gates was engaged to refurbish the organ and it has now been brought up to state of the art conditions. We have been enjoying the beautiful sounds of the pipe organ and the artistry of Dan Gates for several years. There is no admission charge or solicitation of funds for the concert.

Not because of the work but because the flowers are still there and when the sun shines the hummingbirds still come. But cut them I must so they can come back in the spring and grow big again and the bees and the hummingbirds can gather pollen and nectar again. I garden in what I can only term jungle style, I love to cram plants into small spaces and let them fight it out. Consequently, once I cut everything back I am always impressed by how clear everything looks. It makes me think that maybe I need to make my garden more sedate...but that never happens I always let the jungle get going again in the spring. My paper-whites are getting ready to bloom and I am thinking about putting more of them in after all they are invisible most of the year, they don't add to the tangle. I hold strong to this concept in regard to all bulbs. Thick and lush while blooming, then gone. Off I go, the leaves are calling my name they need to be raked.
