Newspaper obituary:
AUBIN, Neva Mallon
A long, fearless and remarkable life came to a quiet close on Tuesday, Nov. 11, with the death of Neva Harriet Mallon Aubin, in her Oakland home of 63 years. She was born in the Colusa County hamlet of Princeton, on September 19, 1908, to Jacquelin Chatfield Mallon and James Frederick Mallon. At the age of 4 Neva began playing the piano and never lost her joy of making music, especially with children. She was educated at the University of California, the New England Conservatory of Music and San Francisco State College from which she received her master's degree in music education. For many years she taught in the Oakland Public Schools, then joined the faculty at San Francisco State College and, later, the University of California Department of Education, where she finished her teaching career with retirement in 1973. Neva had a true talent for friendship -- her interests always focused on others rather than herself. At a recent celebration of her Centennial Birthday over a hundred well-wishers came to salute their friend and confidante. She was famous for her neighborhood Christmas parties; the crowded living room would ring with music as Neva played carols for the festive sing-a-longs. A longtime member of College Avenue Presbyterian Church, Neva contributed much to the congregation with her musical talents and personal outreach to all. Neva was married to Errington Goddard Aubin for several years. A second marriage, in 1984, to George H. Kyme, also a teacher and longtime friend, ended with Dr. Kyme's death nine years later. Neva was preceded in death by her brother James DeVere Mallon, his wife, Chellie Howard Mallon; her sister, Marjorie Mallon Truman, and brother-in-law, Stanley R. Truman, M.D. She leaves behind a loving daughter & son-in-law, her deeply devoted grandchildren, great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. The family expresses their appreciation for the loving assistance given Neva by her caregivers, Fitalika and Luisa. A service of Thanksgiving for Neva's life will be held at College Avenue Presbyterian Church, 5951 College Ave., Oakland, 94618, at 1:30 PM, Sunday, November 23, with a reception following the service. The family suggests any donations in Neva's memory be made to College Avenue Presbyterian Church.
