Ken Rollston was born on November 14, 1944 in Burbank, CA to Henry and Irene Rollston. Ken graduated from James Monroe High School in North Hills, CA in 1962. In 1966 he received his undergraduate degree from Columbia University, where he played varsity baseball, and he earned a J.D. from Columbia Law School in 1969. He was admitted to the bar in California in 1970, and he began practicing law in the Tahoe Basin in 1974.

Ken was the original staff attorney for the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and served as counsel on various matters for the City of South Lake Tahoe and South Tahoe Public Utility District. He represented many Tahoe businesses including Tahoe Seasons Resort, Tahoe Keys Homeowners Association, Alpine Rentals, and Tamarack Rentals. Ken was on the Lake Tahoe Community College District Board for 25 years and served as its President four times. He was instrumental in bringing the Court Appointed Special Advocate program for children to the South Lake Tahoe court system, and he supported youth sports for many years as a baseball coach from Little League up to Senior Babe Ruth.

Ken had many passions, but he especially loved fly fishing, from streams in Big Sky and Kodiak Island to the saltwater flats of Los Roques and Christmas Island. He was a world traveler, an inveterate golfer, a wine connoisseur, and a Dodgers fam since shildhood. In recent years, he became a fearsome fantasy football player.

A celebration of Ken’s life will be held in the spring.

The family asks that donations in his memory be sent to the Lake Tahoe Educational Foundation at http://www.ltedf.org

Diana Lynn Baker, Placerville Ca

Nov. 7, 1958 — Jan. 6, 2017

Diana Lynn Baker passed away on Friday, Jan. 6, 2017, in Placerville, Calif., surrounded by family. She was born in Seattle, Wash., Nov. 7, 1958, the second of five children to John and Roberta Baker. She grew up in the Seattle area, attending Columbia Elementary School and graduating from Pacific Secondary School. She was very active in her church, with her community of friends and with her family — especially as nieces and nephews began arriving. She loved the “babies,” as she referred to them their entire lives.

In 2000, Diana moved to Placerville and later to Shingle Springs, Calif., to be close to her mother, Roberta and brother, Chuck as well as her Aunt Sis and Uncle Bernie, who were very involved in her life. She had several nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews in the area who brought her immense joy. She had many friends and shared her home with Shasta, her beloved cat of almost 15 years.

Diana was a volunteer at Green Valley Church, attended Cameron Park Christian Center and was active in the MORE Workshop, El Dorado Hills Senior Center, Family Affair and other community organizations. She enjoyed practicing her math, playing Bingo, making jewelry and almost any activity or event that brought people together to have a good time. Her bubbly personality and infectious smile captured the hearts of all who met her. She never forgot anyone’s birthday or other special occasions and was happiest when surrounded by family and friends. While family mourns her loss, they find comfort in the joy and love that she shared with those in her life.

Diana is survived by her mother, Roberta (White) Baker; brother, Chuck Baker; sisters, Cheryl (Allan) Baker Ohlsen, Mary (Gary) Baker McLean and Kelly (Larry) Baker Hallman; and all the “babies,” Dezarae, Jonathan, Danielle, Calahan, Shayla, Megan, Kelsey, Miles, Jacob, Greyson, Clinton, Aryanna and Blake.

The family will hold a celebration of Diana’s life on April 22 at 1 p.m. at the Cameron Park Christian Center, 4414 Commodity Way in Cameron Park, Calif. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Cameron Park Christian Center.
