Ed Niland '68, J.D. '75 died on August 4, 2015. Ed's death was due to complications associated with the treatment of esophageal cancer. Ed lived in Scotts Vallley. He practiced law from his office in Los Gatos. He is survived by his wife Julia and daughters Jessica and Danielle.
Christine Sorensen '68, of Camarillo, California, peacefully passed into eternal life on Wednesday morning, May 27, 2015, after a 3 1/2 year battle with breast cancer.
She was born in Oxnard, July 10, 1946, to her parents, Paul O. Sorensen and Margaret Leonard Sorensen. She and her sister Sally were raised in Santa Barbara where they attended Marymount School through the ninth grade. For grades 10 - 12 they attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Menlo Park, CA., graduating with the class of 1964. Christine graduated from Santa Clara University with a BA in philosophy.
Chrissy dealt with Bi-Polar disorder until 1995 when improved medication, and perhaps a miracle, allowed her to resume a normal life. She will long be remembered for her joy-filled countenance and loving spirit. She brought the love and light of Jesus Christ to all who knew her.
Chrissy is survived by her sister and brother-in-law Sally and Burr Allegaert of Warrenton, Oregon; nephew Patrick McCloskey, wife Alison, and children Madeline, Chloe, Rocky, and Summer, of Huntington Beach; and a niece Michaela McCloskey of Newport Beach. All of whom loved her dearly.
