Barbara Londerville, 1928-2017



Barbara Londerville, an Oakmont resident of 30 years, passed away quietly in her home on Jan. 15, 2017. She was born on Oct. 4, 1928, in Springfield, Massachusetts, the daughter of Herbert and Livonia Small, the youngest of six siblings, four brothers and one sister. Barbara was educated through high school in the Springfield public schools. At 14 years old, she went to work at the Grower’s Outlet and then the Federal Bake Shop in Springfield. After graduation, she went to work at the Third National Bank as a teller.

On Dec. 16, 1950, Barbara married Burnie Londerville. She and Burnie raised five children and lived in several states: Massachusetts, Oklahoma and Kansas, finally settling in California. In 1970, Barbara went to work at Pacific Bell Telephone Company and worked for them until she retired in 1988. Barbara went back to school and received a B.A. degree in Business and a B.S. degree in Business Science in 1986. Barbara and Burnie moved to Oakmont in 1987.

Barbara was an active member of the church in Oakmont, singing in the choir and serving on the board. Barbara was involved in more volunteer programs and community service activities than can be counted while she was a resident in Oakmont, including PEO, Kiwanis, The Volunteer Center, Meals on Wheels, Restyle, and the Santa Rosa Police Department. She helped establish the DARE and Stranger Danger programs with the Police Department and even participated in sting operations to catch scam artists who prey on the elderly.

Barbara Londerville is survived by her five children; Susan, Steve, Linda, Barbara and Robert; her five grandchildren; Marie, Brian, Ashleigh, Michael, and Kristen; and her great granddaughter Riley.

A memorial service will be held at the Berger Center on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 2 p.m., with Pastor Jim Fish presiding. Those wishing to remember Barbara may donate to any of the organizations listed above or the charity of their choice.
