Lifelong and third-generation Half Moon Bay resident Ernest "Ernie" Barsuglia died Oct. 9 at Seton Medical Center, Daly City, at age 79 following a long illness.

Mr. Barsuglia attended schools in Half Moon Bay and joined the Navy at age 17. World War II was raging, and he served his Navy term on an aircraft carrier, stationed in the South Pacific.

Back home after the war, he worked for the U.S. Postal Service. He was a postal clerk in Half Moon Bay for 35 years.

"He was a very outgoing person," said his daughter, Vera Vaz of Half Moon Bay. "He loved people."

Mr. Barsuglia is preceded in death by his wife of 40 years, Rita, who died in 1992. He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Vera and Joe Vaz of Half Moon Bay, grandson and wife Andy and Morgan Vaz of Stockton, and stepgreat-grandchildren Alex and Tanner Vaz, also of Stockton.

He is also survived by his brothers Albert and Charles Barsuglia of Half Moon Bay, and brother Julio Barsuglia of El Granada.

Diane M. Sequera

Diane M. Sequera, a fourth-generation Coastsider and 44-year resident of Half Moon Bay, died Sept. 27 at age 63 at her home, following a courageous battle with ovarian cancer.

Born in Stockton, Mrs. Sequera worked as a travel consultant for 24 years, including the last 10 years with Escapades Worldwide Travel in Half Moon Bay. She herself loved to travel, and was known for taking her family, particularly her grandchildren, on memorable vacations including yearly trips to Disneyland, jaunts to Hawaii and cruises.

"She spoiled (her grandchildren) with limousines," said her longtime close friend, Stacey Reimche of Escapades Travel, whose two children were Mrs. Sequera's godchildren.

According to her family, Mrs. Sequera was devoted to family, friends, and her community, a caring and giving person who touched many lives. She was involved with many organizations, including local Portuguese organizations UPPEC, SPRSI and the I.D.E.S. Society.

Mrs. Sequera is preceded in death by her husband of 43 years, Alvin Sequera, who died in November 2003. She is survived by her daughters, Mary Sequera of Dublin and Diel (and husband Steven) Hutchins of Half Moon Bay, and adored grandchildren Allie Denyko, Danielle Hutchins, Morgan Hutchins and Gunner Anthony.

Mrs. Sequera is also survived by her sister, Antoinette Bertolotti of Tracy, and brother Antone "Butch" Coelho of Oakdale, and aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and godchildren.

A funeral Mass was celebrated Sept. 30 at Our Lady of the Pillar Catholic Church in Half Moon Bay, followed by private interment in Tracy.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to the Coastside Adult Day Health Center, or to a cancer-related charity of choice.

Charles Marback

Charles Marback, an 18-year Coastside resident, died in his sleep Oct. 5 at age 89, at Seton Medical Center Coastside.

Mr. Marback was a native of Cincinnati. He worked for 42 years as an electrical engineer with Cincinnati Bell.

During World War II, he served in the Army Air Corps in the European theater, and flew in more than 30 missions during his service. His many awards included the Eastern European Theater ribbon, four Bronze Stars, the Air Medal with three oak clusters and the Distinguished Flying Cross.

Upon his retirement, he moved to California to be near family.

Mr. Marback loved sweets like ice cream and blueberry pie. After retiring, he volunteered at local hospitals for 15 years, including seven years at Seton.

"He was a kind, gracious and quiet man, full of humility," said his daughter, Barbara Guenther of Alameda.

She added that her father often provided valuable help to friends and neighbors.

"He could fix anything and did so for all he knew, from refrigerators to radios, TVs, cars and lawnmowers," she said.

Mr. Marback is preceded in death by two sisters, Geneva Herbener and Gertrude Whittaker. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Marie Marback of Half Moon Bay, his daughters Judy Brewer of Half Moon Bay and Barbara Guenther of Alameda, and grandchildren Heidi and Becky Brewer and Charles Guenther.

A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 19, at the Community United Methodist Church at 777 Miramontes St. in Half Moon Bay.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Alzheimer's Association or to the American Cancer Society.

Claire Ann Sullivan Szeghy

Claire Ann Sullivan Szeghy, nee Dunne, a Montara resident for the last seven years, died Oct. 13 at age 86 at Three Bells of Montara, after a gallant nine-year battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Mrs. Szeghy was characterized by her resilience and her refusal to passively accept what life brought her. She was born during a flu epidemic, and lived through the Great Depression and World War II.

"Claire was part of that great generation that did not let life's events stop them from living and always rose to the occasion when times became a struggle," said her daughter, Claire Ann Sullivan Bennington of Montara. "To her, life had been good. She was a gracious, beautiful and generous lady and we will miss her love and humor."

Mrs. Szeghy was born in San Francisco on Feb. 8, 1918. She lived there throughout her life until the late 1970s, when she relocated to Sunnyvale upon her retirement from the San Francisco water department, where she had worked for 10 years as an accountant.

She also devoted time to being a homemaker, and worked for her husband Leo Sullivan's contracting business. She was married twice, to Leo Sullivan from 1939 to 1972, and to Thomas Szeghy from the mid-1970s to 1988. Both preceded her in death.

"When she was met with great adversity, she acted instead of reacted," said her daughter.

Mrs. Szeghy enjoyed traveling, with Ireland, Sonoma County and Leningrad being favorite destinations. She had moved to Montara seven years ago to be near her daughter, and at Three Bells for the past four years where, said her daughter, she was "lovingly cared for by the staff, her extended family."

Mrs. Szaghy is also preceded in death by her parents, sister Alice Wilhite, and brothers Francis, Lester, Robert and Jack Dunne. She is survived by her children and their spouses, Leo Sullivan Jr. and Barbara Costello Sullivan of Palm Desert, Dennis Joseph and Diane Berlien Sullivan of Whidbey Island, Wash., and Claire Ann Sullivan Bennington and James Jay Bennington of Montara.

She was also a devoted grandmother to Monica (and husband David) Nord-quist, Maureen (and husband Robert) Oliphant and Melissa Ann Sullivan (and partner Tina Autry), all of Southern California, Brendan Sullivan (and wife Melissa Sather), and Erik Sullivan, of Washington, and Zachary, Cynthia and James K. Bennington, all of Montara. She is also survived by her beloved great-grandchildren Gregory, Amanda, Scott and Matthew Nordquist, Kacie and Haden Oliphant and Mara Sullivan.

Services have been held. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Alzheimer's Association at 2065 West El Camino Real, Mountain View, CA 94040 or to the Sutter VNA and Hospice, 700 S. Claremont, Suite 220, San Mateo, CA 94402.
