Story of Two Families
Matches 1 to 50 of 2,986
In the family notes: Theodore's daughter, called Myrtis Lorainde Dolly Bassford, is a child and is attending Figueroa School and seems to revive the Bassford artistic nature with pencil and feet as she dances around like a fairy every minute she gets a chance and would rather draw than do other school work. So time will tell what the youngest great-great-grandchild of Abraham Bassford will undertake in the futrue.
Her nickname was "Dolly"
In Memory of
Myrtis Loraine Rose, 91, of Ventura, CA passed away peacefully in her home with loved ones surrounding her on Sunday, May 11th 2014. Myrtis was born on Oct. 31st 1922 in Berkley, CA to Josephine and Theodore Bassford. She led a very active life with her family, friends and her church community. Myrtis and Jack got married on Oct 17th 1947. They started their family shortly after. Myrtis is survived by her son, Ted and his wife Terri; daughter, Tina and her husband Ron; son, Rick as well as her son-in-law, Roy. She has 6 grandchildren, Chris and his lady Jennifer and Aiden, John, Lorena and her husband Michael, Kai, Jessica and Jake. Myrtis has 3 great-grandchildren, Christal, Shayla and Selah. She also had 1 great-great grandchild, Belicia. And not to be forgotten were her sweet grand dogs who she loved so much: Oscar, Coda, Lucy, Sasha, Mason, Jagger and Maggie.
The family would like to thank her wonderful doctors Dr. Andrew Kerr, Dr. Todd Yates and Dr. Thomas Kong for their excellent and compassionate care. We would also like to thank Angie and Marsha from Assisted Home Hospice for their loving support for Myrtis and the family.
Services will be held on Monday, May 19th at 10:00am at Charles Carroll Funeral Home located at 15 Teloma Dr. (off Telegraph Rd.) in Ventura, CA.

The family feels that on Mother's Day the Lord gave her the best gift of all, the gift of taking her home.

Not a good pic of my mom.
Probably taken in the early 1950s at our home at 2255
Cerritos Street in Signal Hill. I helped build that pool (it was
dug out by a horse-pulled plow and a guy by the name of
Charley Butcher. I helped build the cabanas down at the
end and that rock waterfall.
These are the Rousere's no matter what Kathy
found. They all went by that name. The Mammy Yokum
character in the middle was the mother, Daisy, who was
an astrology nut and fiery baptist. At the far right was brother
Jerry, whose real first name was Winfield, named after Mexican
American hero General Winfield Scott, who Daisy claimed as an
ancestor. But Daisy would have also claimed Alexander The
Great and Jack The Ripper if she thought it would enhance
her pedigree. As for Jerry he was a lifelong epileptic and
unable to care for himself, so he worked at our home for
years--puttering around, tending the grounds and animals.
Mom took care of him and her mother, I think more so than
The female from left are eldest sister, Julia Raphael,
who had a son, Bob, and a daughter, Pam, who died last
year, and an adopted son Tommy. Julia and her husband
Tom Raphael owned good Mexican restaurants on the
west side near Santa Monica. Tommy lived into his 100s
and died a few years ago.
Next is Armorel, who was kind of a wannabe
sophisticate. She married Al Marmin, a gentleman
Frenchman, and they lived in Guala, up coast from
San Francisco. He sold real estate. I think Armorel
had a son, Ronald, from an earlier marriage. Saw him
once or twice and remember his being good looking in
sort of an effete way.Didn't seem to care much for
any of us, but then neither did I.
Then Mom, who 56 years after her death, I can't
get out of my mind or heart.
Next is Mom's twin sister Ethel, "Sunny," to most
of us. Very pretty and very nice. Married to a wonderful
man, Fred Girard, a successful attorney and very close
and good friend to me. He died of cancer about 20 years
ago. They had a daughter, Cindy, still alive and living in
Huntington Beach, and a son, Gary, who was killed in
an industrial accident about 15 years ago.
That's the story of the people in that picture. Send
more pictures and I'll send fewer words.
