P. B-29

Services for Dorothy M. Presnell, 69 will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. in the Salas Brothers Funeral Chapel, with burial to follow in Lakewood Memorial Park.

She died Thursday in her home after a long illness. A native of San Francisco, she had lived in Modesto 50 years.

She was a member of the Neighborhood Church of Modesto.

She leaves her husband Earl, of Modesto; a son, David and a daughter, Marie Abanathie, both of Merced; a brother; 10 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.

The family prefers rembrances to the American Cancer Society or the Modesto Christian School.
[I'd be willing to bet Marie and her husband are down as "Abernathie" in at least three printed documents.]

Notes I copy into all of these:


I'll send you a copy of the obituary if you send me your postal address privately.

Salas Brothers are still in business, if you'd like to write to them for funeral records. Lakewood Memorial Park is still in business too. It is in Hughson, not Modesto.

I do these to pay back people who have done favors for me and didn't need anything done for them in my county. If you have the time, energy and inclination to do likewise, look at the GenForum board for your county. Most county boards have lots of obit requests.
