Greetings Friends of Judy

Her sisters Bev and Phyllis were loudly and joyously singing to Judy when she passed around 10:30 pm on Monday December 7th. She had  a tear in her eye—how profound, how dear.

Judy’s vigil will be held Today, Tuesday, December 8th and Wednesday, December 9th from 12 - 6pm at her home.  

Per Judy’s request, she wanted everyone to wear bright colors!

Everyone is invited to bring some art supplies to decorate the coffin that her body will be cremated in.  If they desire, guests may bring food and or beverages to share with her family and friends.

We are planning to host her memorial celebration this Friday December 11th in the afternoon. I will send an email out tomorrow once we have finalized those plans.

Blessing to you all,

Ed Bailey

Pamela Joan DeBeni (Gibson)

DeBeni (Gibson), Pamela Joan passed away in Santa Rosa, CA on November 17, 2015 at age 67. She was a native of Arcata, CA.

Pam moved from Arcata in 1981 to Santa Rosa. She was the owner of Coastal Care Centers, Inc., and spent most of her adult life as domestic goddess, super mom, interior decorator and fashionista. She also owned Felecity clothing store in Montgomery Village, it was her dream to have her own boutique and attend the fashion marts.

She was a beautiful painter, chef, avid golfer, belonging to both Santa Rosa Golf and Country Club and Fountaingrove, but loved her Monday night women's league at Bennett Valley. She loved all kinds of music, especially Jazz, and loved going to concerts. She loved to travel, seeing most of the world and travelling in her RV throughout North America. She appreciated all genres of art. She was an avid collector of antiques and loved spending Sundays looking at open houses.

Her true calling came when she became a Nana. She loved her granddaughters more than life itself and they shared a bond that will never be lost. She spent every moment she could with them and taught them to be strong young ladies.

She was generous, loving, classy and kind.

Pam is survived by her daughter Christine Aceves and her loving partner, Michael Ludeman, her granddaughters, Isabella (12) and Sophia (9). Her sister Cheryl Hender and brother Bradley Gibson. Cousin Bonnie Hogue and nephew Brett Rash. Her step-children whom she loved, Larry DeBeni and his wife Lisa, Laurie Redner and her husband Michael and Leslie DeBeni and her partner Roger James, and numerous step-grandchildren. Lastly, her everyday companion, Dudley, her dog whom she loved and took everywhere she went.

She is preceded in death by the love of her life, Lawrence DeBeni, parents Henry and Jean Gibson, brother Scott Gibson, her aunts Eva and Midge and her beloved Huggy Bear.

At her request, no services will be held. A private celebration of her life will be shared by family at one of her favorite places, the Benbow Inn.

I leave you with one of her famous quotes we should all live by; "Have some class and act like a lady". 

In honor of Pam, any memorial contributions can be made to St. Jude's in honor of Kapri Geernaert, a true fighter, at\donate or PO Box 1893, Mephis, TN 38101.
