Feb. 27, 1921 – Jan. 15, 2014

Mary Clare Kitchell passed away peacefully on Jan. 15, 2014, at age 92 in Folsom. She was born Feb. 27, 1921, in Minneapolis, Minn., and graduated from the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minn., in 1943. She worked for four years as a teacher. She married Ralph L. Kitchell in 1947 and they were married for 50 years until his death in 1997.

Mary Clare was a homemaker and a skilled seamstress — sewing most clothes for the family. She and Ralph moved because of his career in veterinary medicine — starting at the University of Minnesota, later Kansas State, Iowa State and lastly UC Davis. She enjoyed hosting family gatherings as well as those with friends, neighbors and Ralph’s university colleagues.

Mary Clare loved to travel with Ralph and they went to Europe in 1957 and later to Japan, New Zealand, Vietnam and many other countries. She volunteered at the Yolo County Historical Museum and St. James Catholic Church and enjoyed gardening, with a special interest in orchids. She also enjoyed needlepoint and other crafts, and “Masterpiece Theatre” on TV.

She is survived by daughter Margaret, son Michael (Mary), and daughter Martha (Gerry Blank) and grandchildren Ellen, Sarah, Julia and Alex.

A funeral Mass will begin at 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24, at St. John the Baptist Church, 307 Montrose Drive in Folsom. Graveside services will follow at 2 p.m. Jan 24 at the Davis Cemetery, 820 Pole Line Road in Davis. Memorial donations may be made to: Food for the Poor or the American Red Cross.
