Shared by John Ozment

Beryl Lucille Ozment

Beryl entered peacefully into rest on February 3, 2009, in San Jose, California, at the age of 87. She was born on January 27, 1922, in San Francisco, where she grew up first on South Van Ness (then still Howard Street) and on Capp Street from 1929. She helped in her father’s restaurant and graduated from Mission High in January 1940 with an emphasis in bookkeeping. Beryl wed at Fort Scott on July 25, 1943, while employed at the Presidio in supply distribution. Following her husband’s Army discharge in December 1945, they bought and resided in San Bruno for 6 years and in San Jose for 57 years.

She was preceded in death by Odell, her cherished husband of 64 years, by her parents, Mads (Matt) G. and Anna M. Nielsen (later of Redwood City), and by her brothers, Stanley and Matt. Wed in 1920 at City Hall, her father ran a confectionery across from Kezar before opening The 22nd Street Lunch Counter in 1925. He and his carpenter uncle (who built a landmark residence in Utah) helped rebuild after the Great Quake. Her mother’s uncle and his wife were Gold Country pioneers in Challenge and Forbestown. Her mother’s great-grandfather founded the landmark Maria Hilf Chapel (1853) in Cheektowaga, New York, while his own cousin founded early Colorado Springs (1858).

Beryl retired in 1984 from her work in payroll for general contractors Dan Caputo and George Frazier. A 29-year square dancer with the Mavericks and the Dudes and Dolls, she also enjoyed various crafts (including sewing and crocheting), as well as cross-country vacations by car. An eight-year stroke survivor, Beryl exhibited careful custodianship of her health and delighted in continuing to experience her growing family.

Beryl was a gentle and steadfast homemaker, being calm, soft-spoken, thoughtful, generous, fair, organized, a good cook, and a good example. Beryl will be deeply missed by her daughter, Sharon Hermen (and her husband, Wayne); by her son, John (and his wife, Zita); by her grandchildren, Mark Hermen (and his wife, Cindy), Lisa and Teri Hermen, and Gregory and Kenneth Ozment; and by her great-grandchildren, Joseph, Hailey, and Kade Hermen.

Visitation will be held on Friday, February 6, 2009, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Darling Fischer Campbell Memorial Chapel, 231 E. Campbell, Avenue, Campbell. A graveside service will follow at 2:30 p.m. at Los Gatos Memorial Park, 2255 Los Gatos-Almaden Road, San Jose, in the Veterans Section with Elder Mark Hermen presiding.
