Judy Ross

In Loving Memory Of

Judy Ross

Judy G. Ross was born on October 20, 1952 in Bethesda, Maryland to
John Anderson and Joan Boarman Ross and passed away on April 6,
Judy lived in the Washington, D.C. metro area during her youth and loved
the experience of living in our Nation’s Capital. In her teens, Judy moved
to Cathay, North Dakota, eventually relocating to Minot, North Dakota
where she graduated from Minot High School. A brief stint working for the
U.S. Army followed, but her home town beckoned and she returned there.
She secured a job in J. Edgar Hoover’s steno pool at the FBI for a few
years, then married and returned to North Dakota. Shortly afterward, most
of her family had relocated to Denver, Colorado and she convinced her
new husband to move there. A fortunate opportunity arose and she
accepted a secretarial position with Hughes Aircraft Company at Buckley
Field in Aurora, Colorado. This opportunity afforded her an extremely
successful career with Hughes Aircraft Company for 30 years. After
several mutations, her job at Hughes morphed into one with The Boeing
Company in El Segundo, California. Judy loved the many challenges her
career brought her and she met each one with dedication, integrity and
enthusiasm. Judy retired as a Human Resources Generalist in 2014.
Her retirement was especially joyful when she sought out volunteer
opportunities with the USO, the El Segundo Police Department, the El
Segundo Library and the Cancer Support Community. Judy had a
generous heart and the American Cancer Society, the American Lung
Association, the Cancer Support Community, the USO and Erase the
Stigma all benefited from that. Her family and friends were often the
beneficiary of her generosity. Judy loved to treat them to dinner and an
event just for fun!
Judy thoroughly enjoyed travel, as well as attending live theater, comedy
clubs, rock concerts (especially Elton John), ballet performances, the movie
theater, and watching the game show Jeopardy! Two years ago, Judy
easily adapted to the role of “Crazy Cat Lady” when she adopted her
beloved kitties, Betsy and Nellie. Her dormant maternal instincts came to
full fruition with those beautiful felines. She had a fondness for Peeps that
probably boosted the maker’s profit margin considerably throughout the
year! Our Judy had an unmatched zest for life to the point where she
appointed herself “The Princess!” Judy will be profoundly missed by her
family and friends. She was truly one of a kind.

Judy was preceded in death by her Mom, Dad and brother John. She is
survived by her sisters, Janice Ross of Santa Clarita, California, and
Juanita Kursevich of Bailey, Colorado, both of whom were at her side when
she passed. Her niece, Holly Kursevich of Westminster, Colorado was also
by her side and was Judy’s caretaker for the last three months of her life.
Judy is also survived by seven nieces and nephews. A private service and
interment were held.
The hearts of Judy’s family are filled with gratitude for the many treasured
friends who loved and supported her during her nine-year cancer journey.
Judy never gave up and was strong to the end, not once relinquishing her
rightful status as a Princess! We extend a special thank you to the
Hospice team from Torrance Memorial Medical Center for its expert
assistance, guidance and devoted care.

Randi Clarke

In Loving Memory of

Randi Sorensen Clarke
February 12, 1938 – February 20, 2018

Randi was born in Copenhagen, Denmark. Randi survived her parents and her younger brother. She moved to the United States in 1959. She met and married John W. Clarke in October 1962. Together they had five children; Roger, Ivan, Sheila, Gary and Carl. John was in the military, and as such the family moved around the country continuously. In fact, it was on one such move across the country in which Randi went into labor while on the road, so she and John pulled into the nearest military base in Alamogordo, NM where Sheila was born. Days later they continued their move. Randi was a strong woman that didn’t let any unplanned events to cause her distress.

Randi was an accomplished woman, having earned her BA from BYU and her MBA from Pepperdine University. Randi spent some time in her younger adult years working as a social worker for the Big Sister League, where she helped women recover from traumatic circumstances. Later in life Randi attended night school while raising her five children to earn her MBA and later went on to establish and run her own accounting business for over 30 years. Randi had a love for ice cream, and was known to offer anyone who ever came to her house (no matter what time of day or morning) a bowl of ice cream.

Randi spent her life helping others and contributing to those less fortunate. Even with her own business, Randi was known to work for clients who may not have had the means to pay for her services, but would instead often barter. This is also why she always had a supply of coffee, since one of her clients owned his own coffee shop and they exchanged bags of coffee for Randi’s accounting expertise.

Randi also did a lot of work for causes she believed in, such as the African American Women’s Association, local Boys and Girls Club branches, and several more. She not only donated her time, but was always donating her money to various cancer research foundations, children’s foundations, and animal rescue foundations. In fact, she was so giving that one day when she was leaving work during a rainstorm, she noticed a woman waiting for a ride and the woman did not have a coat or umbrella, so Randi gave her own coat to the woman.

In addition to all of her charitable efforts, Randi was always there for her family. Any time any family member asked for anything, Randi was there doing whatever she could to help. Randi was always polite, kind and patient with every person she encountered, no matter the circumstances. Randi loved her family above all else and was known to always have said she didn’t “want to be a burden”. Randi was a woman who dedicated her life, her work and her love to giving to others. She will be dearly missed and the world is a bit darker without her shining soul in it.

Randi is survived by her five children, fourteen grandchildren, and one great-grand child.
