Rural Catholic cemetery reflects California history - Catholic San Francisco

Monday, October 31, 2016

Catholic cemeteries family this year in part because its longtime volunteer superintendent Dr. Norman Straub, died in 2014.The archdiocese’s other Catholic cemeteries include Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma, Holy Cross Cemetery in Menlo Park, Our Lady of the Pillar Cemetery in Half Moon Bay, St. Anthony Cemetery in Pescadero, Mount Olivet Cemetery in San Rafael and Tomales Cemetery in the town of the same name.Before St. Mary Magdalene Cemetery was a parish cemetery, however, it was simply a family graveyard to an influential “Californio” – a Spanish term for the original colonists of California and their descendants, according to Elia Haworth, curator of the Bolinas Museum.Gregorio Briones was the son of Don Marcus Briones who accompanied St. Junipero Serra to Yerba Buena later known as San Francisco and helped establish Mission Dolores in 1776. His sister was Juana Briones, an enterprising businesswoman and healer some call “the founding mother of San Francisco.”Briones, a soldier in the colonial army and former alcade, or mayor of the Presidio in San Francisco, retired in the 1840s and moved his family to Rancho Las Baulines or Bolinas after receiving a land grant from the governor. Here, he became a successful cattle rancher.A history of the cemetery was written by Straub, a St. Mary Magdalene parishioner and San Anselmo resident who is buried in the idyllic cemetery. It is available on the Sacred Heart Parish website.After a smallpox epidemic hit West Marin in 1853, Gregorio Briones donated a plot in a pasture overlooking Bolinas Lagoon for a burial ground. Prior to this, those who died were usually buried on the property where they lived.Over the years, according to Straub, the burial ground became known as the Briones Graveyard, and from the beginning, it had two sections: Catholic and Protestant. When someone died, whichever clergyman was available presided.??When he died in 1863, Briones’s will included a request to make the burial ground into a permanent cemetery. It also asked that a chapel be built on the grounds so that people could pray for the repose of his soul, according to Straub, even though Briones himself is buried at Mission Dolores.For unknown reaso

Mystery girl in Calif. gets second funeral, 145 years after she was first buried - Washington Post

Monday, June 06, 2016

This gravestone will mark the new grave of a 3-year-old girl, found last month buried under a home in San Francisco, at Greenlawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Colma, Calif. (Michael Macor/San Francisco Chronicle via AP)More than 100 people traveled to a California cemetery Saturday morning to grieve the mystery girl with the golden hair, a child laid to rest with no name, no family and no story.Mourners tossed flowers on her grave. Someone sang “Over the Rainbow.” Strangers wept.The girl’s gravestone read: “The child loved around the world.”Mourners from across the state arrived over the weekend not with tales to share or answers to give, but with a sense of common purpose. They hoped, in some small way, that their presence might fill the empty space where her real family — her real parents — should have been but weren’t. Like her, they’d probably been dead for more than a century.This was the unknown girl’s second funeral.The mystery surrounding the golden-haired girl, and the efforts to bury her once again, began a month ago, when a construction crew renovating a garage in a San Francisco neighborhood sliced their shovels into the ground a

Hundreds mourn beloved homeless man at funeral for him at Catholic church - Catholic News Service

Monday, December 05, 2016

Mortuary donated a casket and prepared the body for burial. A special collection was taken during the Mass so that Hooker might be laid to rest with dignity and a headstone at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma.According to a Richmond District blog, Hooker was originally from Trinidad and had spent time in Chicago before coming to San Francisco.Every day, Hooker worked his way along Clement Street with his shopping cart and would stand at a corner near Walgreens, usually talking to himself."This was a man who never asked for anything," Lea Grey Dimond, owner of Thidwick Books on Clement Street, told Catholic San Francisco, the archdiocesan newspaper.Hooker was one of three individuals profiled in a documentary about mental illness called "Voices." In the trailer for the documentary, Hooker says with a huge grin: "I suffer a lot, you know, and when you suffer, you must know to be kind."At a reception in the school gym following the funeral Mass for him, the community took turns sharing memories of Hooker and offering parting thoughts. "Voices" was shown afterward."Thomas had a gift for loving generously and unconditionally," said one speaker. "He brought our community something rare and special."A man in tears said he was overcome by the overflowing crowd who had come out to honor Hooker. The tears turned to laughter when he confessed he often "gave my money to Thomas instead of the church."Star of the Sea parishioners Arnold and Jean Low had brought food to Hooker for more than 20 years and were the ones to find him unresponsive on the morning of his death."Thomas was a kind and friendly soul, always had a smile on his face, always had something complimentary to say to you," said Arnold Low. "There are other homeless souls for you to reach out to.Also keep this in mind, he said: "When I am thirsty, you gave me to drink, when I was hungry, you gave me to eat, when I was cold you gave me clothes. Whatever you do for others, you do for me your Lord our God."- - -Gray is on the staff of Catholic San Francisco, newspaper of the Archdiocese of San Francisco.
