........on a very sad note we have lost a very young strong vibrant woman, friend and Root Cellar SGS member

Martha Castano Flanagan
November 15, 1955 - September 12, 2013
Oak Hills Church, Folsom, California
Memorial Service

                     Martha has been laid to rest at  Melrose Abbey Memorial Park, Anaheim, CA

Several Root Cellar SGS members attended a paceful but emotional memorial service last week for Martha.

Martha was very active with her Family History & with Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society, Folsom Quilt Guild and with her church.

The Folsom Quilt Guild hung more than a dozen of Martha's quilts around the room. She really was a excellent quilter. As you entered the room, the Folsom Quilt Guild welcomed everyone They created a template that was laid on cotton cloth to create many squares for the beginnings of a new quilt for the family. People signed the squares.  Root Cellar SGS members picked one square and all Root Cellar members signed the one square. The squares were collected at the end of the service and will be sewn into a memorial quilt for the family.
