Virginia Siegman
A memorial luncheon for the family will be held in January to honor the life of Virginia Leigh Kelley Siegman, 78, of San Jose. She died Nov. 26, 2007, in San Jose.

Born August 10, 1929, to Richard Leigh Kelley and Anna Leighton Kelley in San Francisco, Mrs. Siegman grew up in Modesto and graduated from Modesto High School. After attending Modesto Junior College, she graduated from San Francisco State University with an elementary school credential. She taught in Keyes and Oxnard before marrying in 1957 at Stanford. She spent most of her life in Palo Alto. "Honey," as she was known in the family, was keenly interested in swimming, art, reading, and people-especially children.

She leaves behind three children, Anne Phillips of Sacramento, Winn Kelley Siegman of Menlo Park and Patrick Edward Siegman of San Francisco; her sister, Rosemary K. Maulbetsch of Atherton; and two grandchildren, Jackson Siegman and Rachel Siegman.

Remembrances may be sent in her name to an organization for the purpose of funding research in mental health: NARSAD, 60 Cutter Mill Road, Suite 404, Great Neck, NY 11021, or to a charity of choice.
