I am a first generation Latina born and raised in California. My early life was based in Southern California where my immigrant parents raised me and my two older brothers. During the first six years of my life my family lived in East Los Angeles, Watts, Pasadena and Temple City where our family home remains to this day. My family could afford to live in the suburbs of Los Angeles because my father came to the US as a skilled machinist and the 1960's still enjoyed a robust manufacturing economy based inside our borders. Unlike the neighborhoods just 15 miles away from our home, Temple City enjoyed safe streets, strong schools, and access to good jobs.
Graduate of California State University Long Beach and the University of Texas where I received degrees in psychology (BA with Distinction) and community psychology(PhD), respectively. I finished my doctorate at age 26 in 1985 and took my first academic post as the Assistant Dean for Special Programs at a small liberal arts college in Northern California in 1986. Four years after joining the campus, I became familiar with the painful experience of "hitting the glass ceiling". It is one of the loudest thuds a woman might never hear. I felt fortunate to recognize the politicized nature of my work and left the academic experience in 1994 to become an entrepreneur. I started consulting in the field of diversity and inclusion. As a consultant and entrepreneur, I found enormous freedom to build my knowledge, leverage it to empower and engage others in the hard work that change requires.
Since 1994 I have worked with over 150 organizations in the public, private and nonprofit sectors on topics, change management, executive development and strategic planning.

Lewis H. Simpson II
Tonight is a memorial program for our beloved Lewis Harold Simpson II. He was a self-published author of the book One Inventor's Autobiography and inventor from Springfield, Mass. He had five older sisters, Madelyn (Mimi), Mildred, Shirley, Doris and Gertrude (Bettye). He had one younger brother Charles (Chick) who was my father. He grew up on Melrose Street 'The Block' in Springfield, Mass. He overcame polio and illness in childhood, growing up during The Great Depression and WWII, meeting his beloved wife of 56 years Kathryn Flynn when they both worked at The Diamond Match Company and he traveled across the USA during the depression and had many unusual experiences. On December 28, 1949 their first son Lewis III was born. They were then to have another son Wayne Simpson born on September 3rd, 1953. He delivered his son Wayne Simpson himself after the doctor sent Kathy home for false labor pains. (Wayne died in his 40s due to his epilepsy.) He eventually became a highly skilled machinist. He worked for the US Navy on historic Mare Island near San Francisco, California. Lewis and Kathy were lifelong seekers who sought out and thought a lot about spirituality and what it meant to them. He and his wife Kathryn lived in Vallejo many years until she passed 11 years ago and then his recent passing. He is a beloved father, grandfather and my uncle. Tonight his family gathers from all parts of the country to share their feelings and memories about this great man. Joining us will be his son Lewis Simpson III, his wife Marian. His grandson Chris Simpson and his wife Tracy, and his grand daughter Mary Kathryn Simpson.

Gene Kiepura, a retired railroad machinist, came face to face with the reality of where he stood in his faith when his 14 year old son, Jacob (Jake) was killed on a missions trip to Mexico. As if the death of his son (who was killed along with five others) was not enough to contend with, Eugene also had to deal with corrupt and greedy local authorities and US Embassy staff.
Yet, his greatest challenge of all was his faith in God. Believers, who expected him to be a pillar of great strength and a prime example seemed to undermine or even shorten the grieving process. Gene, along with his wife (41 years of marriage to his highschool sweetheart) Jan, struggled through the tragedy together, along with their other children.
Gene's transparency about his faith and his struggles will cause one to stand back and look hard at their own faith. Listen to how God intervened, strengthening Gene in such unexpected and amazing ways that only God alone is glorified!
