Dannielle Marturana

February 6, 2012

My Dad passed away on Tuesday, February 14, 2017.  He's with my Mom who he has missed so much since her passing 5 years ago. ​He has been struggling the past few weeks but I believe he was waiting for my cousins, Jerry and Linda to arrive before he closed his eyes for the final time. He recognized them immediately and even winked at Jerry, like he did so many years ago when they were up to one of their practical jokes....:)"

Lyman H. Rollins

Lyman lived a very full and successful life.  He loved his wife dearly and together they raised a wonderful close-knit family.  His horses were a reflection of the kind of man he was.  Each one received excellent care and training and went on to other careers after the track.

Inge (Schloss) Lehmann

Inge Lehmann, our wonderful mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, aunt and friend, passed away February 13, 2015 in her apartment in San Francisco.


Our mom was passionate about life and was a loyal and dedicated friend to people important to her. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was a gracious hostess. A long-time San Francisco resident, she and her husband, the late Gary Lehmann, enjoyed many weekends boating on the bay with friends and family. She loved to travel, going to the symphony and building the "house on the hill" with her husband, Gary.


Inge is survived by her two daughters, Debbie Lucchesi and Yvonne Hunter, her adored grand-daughter, Chana Schames, caring son-in-law, Jeff Lucchesi, wonderful sister-in-law, Joan Schloss, and nephews and nieces Jeff and Melody Schloss and their family, Ron Schloss, Bob Schloss, Linda and Ray Philbin and Connie Benesch.
