    [Bethyl Irene Fonda Nov 24, 1912 - May 24, 2011 Our beloved Mother and Grandmother passed away peacefully Tuesday evening at the age of 98. Bethyl was born in Stockton, CA. to George & Isa Grant. Her mother died when she was 8 months old and family friends, Charles & Ida Higbee, asked her father if they could take care of Bethyl since he had 6 other children to care for. He agreed and she became Bethyl Higbee. The Higbee's were wonderful parents and she loved to hear the story about how she became part of their family. It made her feel very special, like she had been chosen. She grew up in the Ceres and Modesto area. She met her husband, Donald Fonda, when she was 15. He was the only man she ever dated, and they were married Oct. 19, 1930, after she graduated from Modesto High School. They had 54 happy years together. Bethyl was widowed in 1985. She is survived by her 4 children, Raymond (Phyllis) Fonda of Coarsegold, CA., Ed (Deb) Fonda of Yachats, Or., Carol (Butch) Blanton of Ceres, CA. and Wayne (Lenell) Fonda of Modesto, CA., 11 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren. Bethyl was a wonderful Christian and the love of our Lord was very real in everything she did and said. She was a great example for her family and friends and everyone who knew her. She taught Sunday school and played the piano and organ for many years at the Ceres Christian Church. She also was a piano teacher in the Ceres area for 30 years. In recent years, she was a charter member of the Grace Community Christian Church in Ceres. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, June 4th at 2:00pm at Grace Community Christian Church, 3754 E. Service Rd., Ceres, CA.]
