    November 1, 1915 - January 20, 2004
    Maestro Stoia was born in Romania in 1915. At the young age of six, he started his love affair with the violin. At both the Military Academy in Romania and the Conservatory of Music in Innsbruck, Austria, he held the position of the youngest music professor in the history of the school. After World War II, a talent scout lured him to the United States. He was concert master of the St. Louis Philharmonic and had a weekly radio show of his violin expertise. In 1952 he was invited to perform in concert at Carnegie Hall.
    For twelve years he directed the San Jose Youth Symphony which was so accomplished that they toured Japan, Mexico, and Taiwan. In Berlin, Germany the Youth Symphony was awarded third place in the world for their performance in a prestigious competition.
    When he retired, his wife Joen and he moved to Pine Mountain Lake. He worked to build the Tuolumne County Symphony and the arts in our area. They then spent eight years in Italy where he continued to perform for various audiences.
    When he and Joen finally settle back in Pine Mountain Lake, he was soon busy with his School of Violin. When he decided to really retire ( at age 86), he had sixteen students who loved him very much.
    Maestro Eugene Stoia performed wonderful music for thousands of people to enjoy, from Romania to Italy, from New York to San Francisco. But most of all, he will be remembered by his students. Thousands of students in his Youth Symphony loved him dearly and learned more from his tutorship than any other music teacher. His students here in Groveland and Greeley Hill will always remember him, too. No one else made you love music more than the Maestro, and no one else could bring out of you your best performance like he could. Thank you, Maestro for all you have given our children and our community. You will be missed.
    Maestro Stoia is survived by Joen, his wife and love of 44 years, his six children, 12 grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

    John William "Bill" Rundstrom of Groveland died Dec. 8 at a Concord hospital. He was 94.
    He was born and grew up in Garvanza, a suburb of Los Angeles now known as Highland Park. At the age of 14, he first had a summer job in his uncle's stained-glass studio. After graduating from Franklin High School, he entered a six-year apprenticeship in stained glass at his uncle's studio, the Judson Studios. He was a stained-glass artist for more than 75 years. He studied at Chouinard Art School and the California Art Institute in Pasadena, among others, and took many classes to develop his artistry and craft.
    He married Muriel Mosher of Altadena in 1936.
    He and his cousin went into partnership to buy the Judson Studios after World War II, where he remained until 1960. He sold his interest in the studio to his cousin and set out on his own with his wife, Muriel, eventually opening the Rundstrom Studio in Orinda. They later relocated to Oceanside for 13 years and then moved to Pine Mountain Lake in Groveland in 1990. Together they designed and fabricated leaded and faceted glass windows for churches in California and Nevada, and did mosaic work. His windows are featured in several homes in Pine Mountain Lake, his family said.
    He was a member of Sierra Professional Artists and the Mother Lode Art Association. He exhibited in art shows staged by those two organizations, as well as in local businesses in Groveland. He also played golf until recently with the Pine Mountain Lake senior men's golfers.
    He was a member of Grace Episcopal Mission.
    Mr. Rundstrom is survived by his wife of 67 years, Muriel Rundstrom; daughters and son-in-law, Leora Isbell of Groveland and Elaine and Philip Fisher of Walnut Creek; grandchildren, Melissa Astiz of Tucson, Ariz., Ben Black of Arroyo Grande and Brett Valjalo of Concord; and great-grandchildren, Roman Black, Emily, Liliana and Rio Astiz, all of Tucson, Ariz., and Christopher and Ashley Black, both of Arroyo Grande.
    A celebration of life is scheduled for 4 p.m. Sunday, with the regular service of Grace Episcopal Mission, at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Big Oak Flat. Friends are invited to join the family after the service at the Lake Lodge at Pine Mountain Lake for refreshments and to see examples of his artwork. A service and inurnment will be held at Memory Garden Chapel at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Orinda at a later date.

    May 6, 1909 — Dec. 8, 2003
    John William "Bill" Rundstrom of Groveland died Dec. 8 at a Concord hospital. He was 94.
    He was born and grew up in Garvanza, a suburb of Los Angeles now known as Highland Park. At the age of 14, he first had a summer job in his uncle's stained-glass studio. After graduating from Franklin High School, he entered a six-year apprenticeship in stained glass at his uncle's studio, the Judson Studios. He was a stained-glass artist for more than 75 years. He studied at Chouinard Art School and the California Art Institute in Pasadena, among others, and took many classes to develop his artistry and craft.
    He married Muriel Mosher of Altadena in 1936.
    He and his cousin went into partnership to buy the Judson Studios after World War II, where he remained until 1960. He sold his interest in the studio to his cousin and set out on his own with his wife, Muriel, eventually opening the Rundstrom Studio in Orinda. They later relocated to Oceanside for 13 years and then moved to Pine Mountain Lake in Groveland in 1990. Together they designed and fabricated leaded and faceted glass windows for churches in California and Nevada, and did mosaic work. His windows are featured in several homes in Pine Mountain Lake, his family said.
    He was a member of Sierra Professional Artists and the Mother Lode Art Association. He exhibited in art shows staged by those two organizations, as well as in local businesses in Groveland. He also played golf until recently with the Pine Mountain Lake senior men's golfers.
    He was a member of Grace Episcopal Mission.
    Mr. Rundstrom is survived by his wife of 67 years, Muriel Rundstrom; daughters and son-in-law, Leora Isbell of Groveland and Elaine and Philip Fisher of Walnut Creek; grandchildren, Melissa Astiz of Tucson, Ariz., Ben Black of Arroyo Grande and Brett Valjalo of Concord; and great-grandchildren, Roman Black, Emily, Liliana and Rio Astiz, all of Tucson, Ariz., and Christopher and Ashley Black, both of Arroyo Grande.
    A celebration of life is scheduled for 4 p.m. Sunday, with the regular service of Grace Episcopal Mission, at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Big Oak Flat. Friends are invited to join the family after the service at the Lake Lodge at Pine Mountain Lake for refreshments and to see examples of his artwork. A service and inurnment will be held at Memory Garden Chapel at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Orinda at a later date.
