Obituary Notices and Memorials


BARTLETT, Nancy Jane Beloved wife and mother, of Tehachapi Calif., peacefully entered into rest on Nov. 24, 2015 after a brief but valiantly fought battle with ALS. Nancy is survived by her husband of 50 years, Dave; her son Daniel; and her daughter, Kelle Pickell (Clark). Nancy is also survived by her grandchildren Ashley, Evan, Megan, Zachary, Joshua, Claire and great-granddaughter Ninkasi, as well as brothers Albert Frowiss and Steven Frowiss, Nancy was born Oct. 28, 1948 to Claire (Cotton) and Marian Frowiss of Santa Barbara, Calif. She is a 1966 graduate of San Marcos High School. Nancy married her high school sweetheart Dave in 1966, and she began her first and most important job as a stay at home mom to Dan and Kelle. The family moved to Lancaster, Calif., in the mid - 1970s. When her children were in high school, Nancy worked at Paraclete High School, where they attended, in the school office and bookstore. After she and Dave moved to Tehachapi in the early 1990s, Nancy eventually began working at Tehachapi Veterinary Hospital. Over the course of the 19 years she worked there, she held several different positions, retiring in October 2014 as a Veterinary Pharmacy Assistant. She enjoyed the work she did, the people she met, and of course the animals! She often came home with stories of animals she saw, and which types she got to pet and kiss that day. All who knew and loved Nancy spoke of her wide smile, infectious laugh and generous heart. Nancy was known to go above and beyond - and then some - to help someone in need. She enjoyed being around people, and she made people feel comfortable. Nancy will be missed by many, loved forever, and never forgotten. A Celebration of Life to honor Nancy is being planned for April 9, 2016 at 1 p.m. at First Baptist Church, 1049 South Curry St., Tehachapi, Calif. Family and friends are invited to attend. In lieu of flowers, the family ask that donations be made in Nancy's memory to Sutter North Hospice, 2700 Gateway Oaks Drive, Suite 2220, Sacramento, Calif. 95833; or The ALS Association, Golden West Chapter, P.O. Box 565, Agoura Hills, Calif. 91376
