Donald Albert Clement

After a long life filled with love and laughter, Don Clement passed away in Fort Frances on February 1, 2014 with his family at his side. He was a cherished husband, dad, grandad, great-grandad, uncle, brother, father-in-law, friend and mentor.

Don was born August 16, 1924, at North Branch, Ontario. As a young man, he enrolled with the Canadian Armed Forces and served during the Second World War. After leaving the army, Don moved to Fort Frances where he met his future wife at a local dance. Don married Eunice Gibson in 1952, and the couple went on to have five daughters, ten grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren.

From a very young age, Don loved to work in the wilderness. He logged and operated heavy equipment, but his favourite pursuit was trapping. At one time, he owned the rights to and trapped the largest trapline in northwestern Ontario. Don was proud of the letters he received from trapping organizations that proclaimed his pelts the most outstanding in a sale. Don had an exceptional understanding and appreciation of nature's delicate balance. He took every opportunity to share this knowledge with his family, shaping generations of respectful hunters, trappers, and fishermen.
It was during one trapping expedition through the pines that Don discovered the spot that would one day become his family's haven. He purchased the property on the shores of Factor Lake and built two log cabins. In 1986 Don and Eunice built their dream log home. More than fifty years and a few more buildings later, "The Cabin" continues to be a beloved place where summer holidays, Christmas celebrations, and even weddings take place.

Don was a family man with immeasurable amounts of love and affection for his descendants. He was a wise, sensitive, gentle, kind, and caring soul. His daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren always found comfort and safety in his embrace (along with a shirt-pocketful of peppermints). Don also had a mischievous sense of humour, and particularly liked to tease his five son-in-laws.

Don was predeceased by his parents Albert and Estha Clement, and by his brothers-in-law Horst Werner and John Advent.

He is survived by his wife of nearly 62 years, Eunice; their daughters Donnas (Al) Stuart, Cyndy (Barry) Petsnick, Renee (Frank) Martin, Teryl (Sandy) McFarland and Lisa (Rick) Krishka; his grandchildren Dave, Tracy, Travis, Allana, Brienne, Bryce, Jaymee, Ashley, Donny and Jillian; and great-grandchildren Ellie, Grace, McKinley, Asher, Samson, Oliver, Isla, Mollie and Rowan. Don's passing is also grieved by his sisters Maxine Werner and Marjorie Advent, and brother Max (Louise) Clement as well as his many nieces, nephews, and friends.

At Don's request, no funeral will take place. The family will celebrate Don's life at their cabin by the lake this coming summer. Don will be deeply missed by his loved ones.

Hurley P. Couchman

Sep 5, 1919 - Feb 16, 2014

Hurley was born on land his parents homesteaded in Olene, Oregon and came to California at the age of five with his parents, older sisters, and older brother. They moved a dozen times between Stockton, Lathrop, Empire, Tracy, Valley Home, Banta, and Modesto while his father sought work in farming. Hurley graduated from Manteca High in 1938 and was always proud that he'd been admitted to start college studies at Cal-Berkeley, but he chose to stay home because his father, Orville, needed Hurley's help in supporting the family.

Hurley worked two years milking cows in Banta, CA at the Ceciliani Dairy, where he roomed in the bunkhouse and ate meals with the Cecilianis, was paid $40/month, and got only one day off a year. When he heard of 100 cows that had to be sold immediately after a bank had foreclosed on a local dairy, he quit his job, bought the herd, and moved it to a rented farm in Modesto on Coffee Road, just north of Sylvan School. His father Orville joined him in milking the herd, and in 1942 they bought their 100 acres with money borrowed from local farmer Dick Konynenburg. After the war, Hurley's older brother Homer joined the dairy, and together the three Couchmans leased farmland east and south along Coffee Road, reaching as far as Rose Avenue and all the way to where Memorial Hospital and Briggsmore were built. They were the last farmers to work the land under what is now McHenry Village.  The property had no water, but they still managed to harvest two crops of loose oat hay on it. They tore down the barn on that property and used the lumber to build their own milking barn on Coffee Road. Orville retired to Santa Cruz and sold his share of the farm, where Coffee Village was built in 1960, and Homer left to start his own dairy in 1964.

While courting his future wife, Thelma Christiansen, Hurley tried to impress her by stating that he "owned 100 mature cows." In their 62 years of marriage, they raised two daughters and four sons on the dairy. By the early 1970's, when Modesto had paved over the surrounding farmland, Hurley and family moved the herd west of Modesto. Twenty years ago Hurley and Thelma sold the dairy to sons David and Mark, and Couchman Farms continues to flourish under their ownership.        
    
Awakened by the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. to issues of social justice, Hurley joined others in Modesto to march in support of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, protested the Vietnam War, and travelled to Nicaragua after the Iran-Contra affair as part of a fact-finding mission. He wrote many letters to Modesto Bee on issues of national concern that he considered important.

Hurley was proud to have served as an usher in church services for 72 years, starting at the First Baptist Church of Stockton, then in Modesto at First Baptist Church, Fairmont Avenue Baptist Church, College Avenue Congregational Church, and Modesto Church of the Brethren. He and Thelma began their long involvement with Heifer Project International when they donated a heifer to commemorate the life of their firstborn, Peter, who died in 1961. Hurley served on the Board of Directors of HPI and even accompanied a shipment of livestock on a cargo ship to Korea, mucking out the shipping containers during the Pacific crossing. He belonged to the Stanislaus County Farm Bureau, was a founding member of Modesto Milling, and became a STAR volunteer for the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department. He served on the board of directors of the McHenry Museum & Historical Society, collected old farm implements for the McClure Country Home, and collated many a newsletter for the Modesto Peace/Life Center.

Hurley and Thelma travelled the world and always emphasized the importance of "getting into the homes" in Central America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. In Modesto, they hosted exchange students and visitors through the American Farm Bureau, AFS, HPI, Modesto Junior College, and other organizations.

Hurley is predeceased by son Peter, parents Orville P. and Lida Holloway Couchman, sisters Helen Barlogio and Gladys June Percival, and brother Homer Couchman. He is survived by his wife Thelma, and sisters-in-law Evelyn Christiansen of Modesto, Alma Deiparinae Christiansen of Turlock, and Lillian Eaton of Galt. His survivors include son Jonathan (Dorita Robinson) of Modesto, Sarah Dove (Duane) of Santa Rosa, Mark (Mona) of Sonoma, David (Mary) of Modesto, and Rebecca Harrison (David) of San Jose. His grandchildren include Dayton Dove (Hannah Clilverd) of Edinburgh, Scotland, Dorothy Couchman of Charlottesville, VA, Karin Dove of Davis, Erik Dove of Corvallis, OR, Kirsten and Laura Couchman of Sonoma, Brian Couchman of San Luis Obispo, Michelle Couchman of Azusa, Bethany Couchman of San Luis Obispo, Katrina Harrison of Davis, and Clarissa Harrison of Royal Oak, MI. Two great-grandchildren, Rowan and Annabel, live in Edinburgh. Hurley is survived also by eleven nieces: Milene Radford (Darrell) of Paso Robles, Karen Duke (Duane) and Lynne Willson (Irvine) of Lathrop, Nancy Hamilton (Bill) of San Andreas, Sharen Couchman and Janice Collyer (Steven) of Modesto, Carole Byers (Jack) of Danville, Arlene Webb (Fred) of Waterford, Christine Eaton (Dan Culhane) of San Luis Obispo, Rebecca Eaton of Galt, and Rachel Eaton (Rico Balatti) of Concord. He is also survived by six nephews: David Barlogio (Georgene) of Paso Robles, Jerald Couchman (Becky) and David Christiansen (Fran) and Jon Christiansen of Modesto, Michael Eaton (Charity Kenyon) of Galt, and Richard Eaton (Toni) of Carmichael.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Franklin and Downs Funeral Homes. A memorial service will be held at 4PM on Saturday, March 1st, at Modesto Church of the Brethren. Hurley would have appreciated any donations in his memory to Heifer.org.

Funeral services for Jimmie Wood, 10, tragic victim of an accidental rifle shot at Buttonwillow, who died yesterday in a local hospital, will be held at 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon from Doughty-Calhoun-O'Meara chapel, with burial in Greenlawn Memorial Park.

A coroner's investigation nearly completed today reconstructed the story of the accident. Jimmie, his brother Leland, and their stepfather, Carols Rea, had gone rabbit hunting and the boys had got out of the car to shoot at a rabbit, but it ran. Returning to the car, Leland, 12, got in beside his stepfather, who was at the wheel, with the loaded and cocked .22 calibre rifle across his knees. Jimmie climbed in beside him and Rea moved to place the gun back of the seat in the coupe when it was discharged, the bullet striking Jimmie in the abdomen. The accident occurred Wednesday afternoon and the boy died shortly after noon yesterday.
