KAKIES, Monica Erna In this city on November 21, 2001 Born Erna Mros in Hamburg, Germany on December 25, 1906. Preceded in death by her beloved husband Hans Max Kakies. Survived by her loving son and companion Franklin John Kakies, her sister Alida Meyer (five years her junior to the day), niece Doris Rabe, nephew Reiner Meyer, and dearest family friends Thelma Weiner and Paul Bonart. Born to a working-class family, she grew up with the new century, raised as a free-thinker and surrounded by the ideas of Froebel and the cooperative movement. Trained as a kindergarten teacher, she later received a scholarship to a small country college where she studied political thought. A member of a small splinter group of the Social Democratic Party, she worked ceaselessly to alert her fellow Germans to the impending disaster of Hitler, and later was active in the underground resistance movement, barely fleeing Germany with her life. As a refugee in Austria, she fled that country the night Shushnigg capitulated to the Nazis, later fleeing Paris as the German army advanced on that city. Escaping through the South of France to Portugal, she came to this country in 1941, where she worked to rescue her (then) fiancee Hans, first from North Africa, then from Cuba. Married in 1942, she helped put her husband (a former social worker) through University where he re-earned his PhD in Psychology, after which the family moved to California where he worked for the Cal. State Youth Authority. When her husband died in 1957 (at the age of 50), she opened a small, highly respected private nursery school. In later years, she was proud to relate that her pupils included the children of legislators, a former governor, and a newspaper publisher, as well as of middle- and working- class families who were passionate about getting their children "off to a good start". In spite of suffering from life-long bouts of severe depression, she was a plucky and brave human being, whose motto was "Never say never", and who pulled herself up "by her own boot-straps" times beyond count. After a lengthy illness and period of decline, she died in her own home, in her own bed, in the arms of her son and only child. Although by no means a saint, she was a wonderful and remarkable woman, a passionate believer in the essential goodness and nobility of man, and in the optimism of hope. In remembrance, her friends are requested to listen to a country dance by Mozart and perhaps some Schubert lieder, and remember the woman who read Goethe in the original German, loved vacations by the sea, and was such a warm-hearted and loving friend, gracing our presence for almost 95 years. A memorial service under the Christmas tree, will be announced at a later date. Interment will be at the Golden Gate National Cemetery
next to her husband and dearest friend.
