Hazel (MALUGANI) GOSS4

Hazel (MALUGANI) GOSS 1122. Hazel Malugani4 was born along Humbug Creek where Gates Road forks off of Calistoga Road below "Buchi Grade" in the hills above Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California. She was baptized as "Maria Philomena," apparently after her aunt Philomena Malugani. Hazel married Lloyd Andrew Goss3 on March 27, 1937, in Carson City, Nevada, and had three children:

11221. Gayle Goss --  --  -- 
11222. Judith Goss --  --  -- 
11223. Gary Goss 5 --  --  -- 

Hazel was named by her maternal grandmother, Cora Williams, for her grandmother's niece, Hazel Miller. This followed a battle with Hazel's paternal grandmother, Aurelia Malugani, whose choice of "Daisy" reminded Grandma Williams of "a cow's name."

Hazel attended school at Alpine School in the hills above Rincon Valley in Santa Rosa. At age 13 she moved in with her uncle Dan Malugani and his new bride Stella, on A Street in Santa Rosa, to help them care for her grandmother Aurelia Malugani. While in downtown Santa Rosa, and under the care of her uncle and grandmother, Hazel attended Catholic school.

Hazel rejoined her family by about 1935, when her great grandmother Harriet Williams came to live with the Maluganis at their fruit orchard on Fulton Road. Not long afterward, she moved in with grandmother Cora Williams upon Sharp Road in Porter Creek, above Rincon Valley. She started her freshman year of high school at Santa Rosa High School, but at the time there were no buses running up and down from the hills so it was difficult to attend on a daily basis. She transferred to Calistoga High School and restarted her freshman year the following year. Hazel attended Calistoga High School until she married in 1937.

GOSS Family, abt. 1898 When Hazel was about 16 years old she met Lloyd Goss for the first time at a dance hall up St. Helena Road. Lloyd offered to buy her a drink and she ordered a soda, which, not realizing how young she was, puzzled Lloyd. They met again a couple years later at the "Midway" dance hall on Sebastopol Road when Lloyd mistook her for someone else.

On March 27, 1937, Hazel, age 18, married Lloyd Andrew Goss, age 24, in Carson City, Nevada.

After their marriage, Hazel and Lloyd lived in the lower level of Lloyd's parents' home in Santa Rosa on Roberts Avenue. They then found their own place on Barham Avenue on the other side of the railroad tracks. Daughters Gayle Ann and Judith Lorraine were born there and in 1942 the family moved back to Roberts Avenue where son Gary Andrew was born. Around 1946, the Goss family moved to Lloyd's father's new home at 1200 Brush Creek while Lloyd built their new home at 939 Middle Rincon Road.

Bertram Charles MALUGANI (1921-1973)

Bert MALUGANI 1123. Bertram Charles Malugani was born at the Tucker Ranch near Calistoga, Napa County, California, on November 28, 1921. He worked at a slaughterhouse near Dutton Avenue in Santa Rosa and later at his cousin Richard's shale pit on Porter Creek Road.

After his father died in 1956, the Malugani place at 2289 Francisco Avenue was left to his younger brother Bud, but because Bud was serving in the U.S. Air Force, Bert lived at the place until he died.

Bert Malugani never married and died at the age of 52 on June 5, 1973.

Obituary, 1973

"Bertram Malugani: Services will be conducted tomorrow for Bertram C. Malugani, 52-year-old heavy equipment operator, who died Monday in a Santa Rosa hospital following a short illness."

"Malugani, who resided at 2289 Francisco Ave., was born in Napa and had lived in Sonoma County 50 years."

"He had been a heavy equipment operator for the Mark West Shale Co. 12 years."

"Surviving him are his sisters Hazel E. Goss, Santa Rosa; Cora A. Oldham, Windsor; Rae Blissard, Oklahoma; Beverly Beaman, Connecticut; and Barbara L. Marshall, Formosa; and brothers Alvin F. Malugani, Willits; and Bud Malugani, serving in the U.S. Air Force."

Previous Marriage for George?
George appears to have previously been married in the 1930s. By 1935 he was living in Manton District, Red Bluff Township, Tehama County, California, and by 1940 was boarding there with the William B. and Camilla O. (Land) Shell family. There he was noted as a widower and worked as a farm tractor operator.[Cen 1940B] Following up on this, it also appears (speculatively) that he may have fathered Ellis Eugene Oldham, who, at the age of 5, was living with his stepfather and mother, Oscar H. and Mae Inger Le Barron, on the outskirts of Healdsburg, Sonoma County.[Cen 1940C]

Cora (MALUGANI) OLDHAMThe Oldhams moved north to Entiat, Chelan County, Washington, around the late 1970s.

George Francis Oldham died on October 26, 1986, in Entiat, at the age of 72 years. Cora and George were just two weeks shy of their 45th anniversary.

After George's death, Cora moved in with her sister Hazel in Santa Rosa.

Cora Aurelia (Malugani) Oldham died three years later on March 27, 1990, at Hazel's home, at 530 Colonial Park Drive at the Colonial Park mobile home park in Santa Rosa. She was 66 years old. Services were held at the Healdsburg Chapel and she was buried at the Chapel of the Chimes in Santa Rosa. Cora later joined George at Entiat Cemetery.

Bud was fascinated with aviation as a child and joined the U.S. Air force when he was only 17 years old (1949/1950). He attended 13 weeks of basic training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas. Later he was assigned to Fort Warren (later renamed as Francis E. Warren Air Force Base) near Cheyenne, Wyoming, where he likely underwent technical training under Air Training Command. After Fort Warren, Bud was reassigned to Fort Worth (Carswell Air Force Base), Texas, around 1950 or early 1951, where he met and married Jo. Bud went on to serve at Aviano Air Base, Italy (~1961-1962), Osan Air Base, Korea (early 1970s), and others, making a career as an explosive ordinance disposal (EOD) technician.

NCO of the Quarter, 1962

"SSgt. Malugani Named NCO of Third Quarter - November 9, 1962: (Photo caption:) SSgt. Theodric Malugani, center, receives his bond for being chosen NCO of the Quarter for the third quarter of 1962 from Col. Glenn A. Stell, group commander. Watching is A1C Manuel Joia who was selected as Airman of the Month and had already received his bond."

"SSgt. Theodric Malugani of Detachment 0200, 7410th Explosive Ordinance Disposal Squadron, has been selected as NCO of the Quarter for the third period of this year."

"In addition to his job as an EOD technician, Sergeant Malugani also fills the position of Area Training NCO, responsible for the preparation of all training conducted in Area Two. Area Two includes all subordinate detachments in Italy."

"Since his assignment to this position he has completely revised the training program, devised new aids, and so stimulated interest that grades have jumped as much as 60 per cent in come cases and overall efficiency has increased 75 per cent. Due to his efforts Area Two Detachments finished first and second in squadron standings. In addition to this program Sergeant Malugani conducts training sessions in explosive safety and related subjects for other units at Aviano AB."

"According to Capt. Nicholas Leone, detachment commander, Sergeant Malugani consistently performs his duties in an outstanding manner and sets an example for others to follow. He is fully competent in the performance of his duties and always displays a professional attitude, indicating the high calibre NCO that he is."

"The sergeant also acts as Detachment Ground Safety NCO and through his efforts in this area many deficiencies have been discovered before a serious accident could occur."

Bud went on to retire from the Air Force as a Senior Master Sergeant (E-8). Afterward he worked real estate in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Theodoric "Bud" Fisher Malugani died on March 21, 2001, at his home in Weatherford, Texas. He was 68 years old.

11312. Kristin Magatelli --  --  -- 
11313. Richard Magatelli --  --  --

"2 Gun Al"
Mike frequently recalled that he and his brother Bennie witnessed Albert "2 Gun Al" Chamberlain shoot neighbor John McCabe with eight shots before heading downtown to kill Santa Rosa police chief Charles B. O'Neal and Sheriff Harry Patteson on July 15, 1935. Al was a 76- or 77-year-old cattle rancher who had been fined and jailed after a minor auto accident and sought revenge against the police chief and sheriff for his sentence, and against McCabe for acquiring his property in Alpine Valley when the sentence ruined him financially. Al mortally wounded Chief O'Neal, the S.R.P.D.'s first officer to die in the line of duty, but was captured by Sheriff Patteson and imprisoned at San Quentin.

Mike grew up in Alpine Valley above Santa Rosa along Calistoga Road.

He moved into Santa Rosa by 1940 where he lived with his mother's second cousin, Mabel (Pomi) Bellon, at 1046 3rd Street.[Cen 1940] Around this time he owned the Lido Club at 101 4th Street in Downtown Santa Rosa.

Mike enlisted in the U.S. Army as a private on March 11, 1941, and served in the European Theater.

Charlotte (Bjorndahl) Magatelli, died on January 8, 1984, in Fortuna, Humboldt County, California. She was 62 years old.

Mike Magatelli died on March 23, 2011, just three days prior to his 98th birthday.

Eureka Times-Standard, March 26, 2011

"Mike Magatelli passed away peacefully on March 23rd at the River House in Rio Dell, three days shy of his 98 birthday. He had not been ill, he just decided it was time for him to go, so the family is blessed that he did not suffer."

"Mike was the first of five children born to Tony and Serena Magatelli in Santa Rosa in 1913. Mike spent his youth helping his Pa haul firewood from Alpine Valley to Santa Rosa, working on their ranch and vineyard. Before entering WWII he owned the Lido Club in Santa Rosa. He served 34 months in the U.S. Army in the European Theater during WWII."

"In 1945 he met love of his life Charlotte, they married in 1946. They settled in Cloverdale where they lived for 15 years."

"He worked for Hulbert & Muffley Lumber and had a vineyard on Cherry Creek road where he had built a lake to irrigate the vineyard. In 1960 the mill burned down & he obtained work at the lumber mill in Carlotta were he eventually became the manager until the mill was sold. From there he became the North Coast quality control manager for Louisiana Pacific. The family settled in Ferndale in 1961 in Port Kenyon & in 1974 the family farm was sold. Our family was very fortunate to have lived in Ferndale where we all have many life time friends. Mike and Charlotte settled on Loop road in Fortuna where he lived for 37 years, another ranch was purchased on the Old Briceland road in Garberville. Here he enjoyed gardening, growing fruit trees, raising goats, chickens, riding horses, making firewood, cooking on his wood stove from the bounties of his gardens."

"Charlotte died in 1984 and Dad became involved in the Friendship Circle in Eureka, where he enjoyed his love of dancing & was also a member of the Moose lodge."

"At the age of 95, it became clear to his children that he could no longer live alone. He transitioned into life at the River House, he enjoyed sitting on the patio, watching the chickens, doves, his sheep and looking out at the bluffs across the Eel River, waiting for each season's harvests from the gardens and visiting with his friends at the River House. He enjoyed his outings to the Senior Luncheons in Ferndale and attending the Swiss Hall to listen the accordion players."

"Mike is survived by his four children, Michael, Kristin, Richard and Diane. Their spouses, Mary, Gunnar Laxfoss and Nancy. Grandchildren, Melanie, Kyle, Cara, Marisa Magatelli, Melissa Johnson, & great granddaughter Sarah Johnson, Marcus Usher and his 3 children, Tommy, Tanner & Isabella."

"Mike was the 2nd to last of his generation. The extended family has gathered since 1990 every two years where all of the family got to know their Uncle Mike. He was very special to all of us and will be deeply missed. He had quite the sense of humor and had a nickname for just about everybody, the most common was bootlegger."

"The family would like to acknowledge and thank Peggy & George Patmore the owners of the River House for all of their care and love they extended to our Father. Per his request, there will be no services. Memorial contributions can be made to the Ferndale Senior Resource Agency, PO Box 726 Ferndale, Ca 95536."
