Mark Edward Williams

Mark Edward Williams, a San Francisco resident who had grown up in Half Moon Bay, died Nov. 4 at age 38.

Mr. Williams was born in San Mateo but grew up in Half Moon Bay. Around age 17, he relocated to the Santa Cruz and Monterey area. He settled in San Francisco about eight years ago, dividing his time between the city and Acampo, Calif., near Lodi, where his parents lived on a ranch. He would visit them every weekend.

"He'd come up and help his dad" with the ranch work, said his mother, Darlene Williams. "He was very quiet, kind of shy. He was very kind."

"He was quiet but he'd do things for you without you knowing it until later," said Mr. Williams' sister, Debbie Cruz of San Carlos. "He was very subtle in the things he did."

Mr. Williams worked as a full-time house painter and had been taking art and math classes at Skyline College. He loved his dog, a pit bull mix named "Gordo," which he'd had since Gordo was six weeks old and which his sister described as "a big baby."

Mr. Williams is survived by his parents, Ed and Darlene Williams of Acampo, his sister Debbie Cruz of San Carlos, his grandparents Bob and Alice Waugh of Sunnyvale, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and his dog Gordo.

Friends and family are invited to a memorial service scheduled at 2 p.m. this Sunday, Dec. 5, at the White Oaks Chapel at 1696 El Camino Real in San Carlos.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Forte Help, 915 Bryant St., San Francisco, CA 94103.

Andrew David Mier

Andrew David Mier, son of David Mier of Half Moon Bay, died Nov. 18 in the Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Ga., at age 40 and due to cancer.

Mr. Mier was born June 12, 1964, and was a native of San Mateo but grew up on the coast. In his youth, he was a member of the Cub Scouts, Pack 285, and of Boy Scout Troop 285. Also while in his youth, he loved to explore and fish in the canyons around the coast, and spent as much time as he could at Yosemite National Park.

Mr. Mier was also a long-time member of Holy Family Episcopal Church. He was a professional long-distance truck driver who traveled all around the country on his job before moving to Georgia.

He was an avid outdoorsman, and recognized for his skill in wilderness survival. He particularly enjoyed fly-fishing, rock climbing, camping and backpacking. He was very knowledgeable about Georgia trails and fly-fishing sites, and had an unfulfilled desire to walk the Appalachian Trail.

Mr. Mier is survived by his parents, David Mier and Carmen Giedt of Half Moon Bay and Nancy Mier and Curt Tipton of Duluth, Ga. He is also survived by his grandmothers Alice Mier of Oakhurst, Calif., and Mrs. Tense Senger of Blue Ridge, Ga., and his brother and sister-in-law Joel and Samantha Mier, and niece and nephew Amanda and Cole Mier, all of San Jose.

He is also survived by numerous relatives in California and Georgia.

Graveside services were held Saturday, Nov. 27, in Blue Ridge.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions to the Peachtree Christian Hospice at 3430 Duluth Park Lane, Duluth, Ga. 30096.

Carol Ann Cody

Carol Ann Cody of Montara, a 30-year Coastside resident, died Nov. 22 at age 64 at her home, after a brief battle with cancer and a long struggle with multiple sclerosis.

Ms. Cody was born Oct. 4, 1940, and grew up in, Stamford, Conn., the daughter of Thomas and Virginia Cody and the younger sister of Harold "Hal" Cody. She attended Sacred Heart Academy High School in Stamford, and graduated from the nursing program at Stamford Hospital, where she went to work in the operating room after graduation.

In 1964, Ms. Cody moved to Burlingame. She worked as a registered nurse in the Peninsula Hospital emergency room, and also attended San Francisco State University, from which she graduated in 1971 with a degree in journalism. In 1973 she began working for the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in South San Francisco as the manager of the emergency department. She was involved in opening the current facility on El Camino Real.

In 1974 she moved to Half Moon Bay. She settled in Montara in 1981.

She was part of the San Mateo County task force that was instrumental in developing the first paramedic response unit in the county, which functioned as part of the South San Francisco Fire Department. She continued to excel in nursing, becoming active in the California Nurses Association and also becoming a nursing administrator.

Ms. Cody retired early after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Refusing to give in to the disease, she spent many years traveling with friends across the United States, Canada and Alaska, and made trips much farther to Africa, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

Ms. Cody also developed a passion for needlepoint, creating beautiful pieces for family and friends. She also had a life-

long affinity for books, and read voraciously. Her other passions included baseball, from Little League to the major leagues, football at all levels, and dogs. She always had from one to four dogs, according to her good friend Ann Cardosi of Montara.

"Carol and her wonderful sense of humor will be greatly missed by all her family and friends," said Cardosi.

Ms. Cody is survived by her friend Ann Cardosi of Montara, with whom she had bought a home, and Cardosi's children, daughter Laura, also of Montara, and son Steve Cardosi and partner Alicia Pradas-Monne of Half Moon Bay, to whom she was very close.

She is also survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Hal and Ilene Cody of San Ramon, and her nephews and niece and their families, Keith Cody of Berkeley, Nancy and Mike Llamas and their daughter Jessica of Martinez, and Mike and Jean Cody and their sons Jack, Tim and Kevin, all of Phoenix.

She is also survived by her English springer spaniel "Murphy."

At Ms. Cody's request, there will be no public service. She had requested cremation, and her ashes will be scattered at sea by her family.

Rosemary V. Barker

In the more than 30 years that she lived in Half Moon Bay, Rosemary V. Barker was known to one and all as "Mickey." She was the one friends phoned to ask for recommendations for good local restaurants.

Ms. Barker died Dec. 7 at her home, at age 75 and following a long illness.

Born in Queens, N.Y., Ms. Barker served in the United States Marines, driving a jeep. After being discharged from the Marines in 1952, she earned bachelor's and master's degrees from Dominican University in San Rafael.

Ms. Barker taught social sciences and history at Skyline Community College, in San Bruno, from 1970 until her retirement in 1990. She was also a founder of the college's Women in Transition program.

For the past 30 years, Ms. Barker had been active in the women's community of San Mateo County, primarily through many women's social groups.

"She was definitely a very social person," said Edith Davidson, Ms. Barker's friend and trustee.

In 1971 Ms. Barker settled in Half Moon Bay, in a home built in the then-new Frenchmans Creek development. She enjoyed life on the coast, said Davidson.

"She knew all the restaurants in the area and enjoyed taking friends to the flower markets in town," Davidson said.

Ms. Barker is survived by a large circle of friends.

Services were held at Our Lady of the Pillar Church on Dec. 10.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be sent to Dominican University, 50 Acacia Ave., San Rafael, CA 94901.
