June Rosamond-Rice

I just discovered my Aunt June was a writer. She was President of the Quill and Scroll at Ventura Community College. She was also on the yearbook committee. Was this what her husband, Vincent Rice, and Mary Magdalene Rosamond’s eldest daughter, had in common”

Today, six members of my family, including myself, received anther check from the Rice Trust. I thank my aunt and uncle who had no children, and were there for their nieces and nephews. They were like my parents.

Below is a diploma of sorts given to my mother who attended Ventura Community College, but, may have not graduated due to joining the Waves. She scored the second highest score in Wave history, and served her country spying on the Russians up in Seattle.

My grandmother did a fine job raising four beautiful daughters and her two nephews all by herself. Mary did not live long enough to see her granddaughter become famous. In this light, when all the outsiders are removed, along with their fantasies, we behold a Sober Family who have done well to overcome much adversity, and, walk with the Truth.

Below is a photo of Christine’s daughter, Shannon, sitting on June’s lap, while her mother looks on. We could have been more generous towards June. Children are so very precious. Rosemary’s children have much to be grateful for.

Ventura College was established as the first college in Ventura County in 1925, when a junior college department was added at Ventura Union High School. In 1929, the Ventura High School District adopted the four-four plan of secondary education, providing four years of junior high school (grades 7-10) and four years of high school/junior college (grades 11-14). The next year, Ventura Junior College, as the senior four-year school was then known, was moved to a new campus at Main and Catalina Streets in Ventura, the present location of Ventura High School.
