He was 80.
Mr. Mabee moved to California from his native Iowa for his health and built up from a corner grocery store to own the Big Bear chain of supermarkets. Using the profits from the stores, he and his wife Betty built up Golden Eagle Farm into one of California's most successful breeding and racing outfits. Some of the more notable runners to carry the Golden Eagle silks are Best Pal, General Challenge, Excellent Meeting, Event of the Year, Dramatic Gold, Jeanne Jones, Souvenir Copy, and Worldly Manner.8 
oObit  John's obituary read: John and Betty Mabee founded Golden Eagle Farm in Ramona, Cal., possibly the most successful and formidable breeding operations in California. John Mabee died on April 24, 2002, at age 80, after complications from a stroke suffered a week earlier. He is survived by Betty, his wife of 60 years, a son, Larry, and three grandchildren.
Betty, with Larry's assistance, has carried on the operation of Golden Eagle Farm ... Golden Eagle has scaled back its involvement since John's death, and in 2007, it was announced that they would sell the flagship farm in Ramona and disperse approximately 250 horses over the course of a year. They will retain a handful of broodmares and move to a smaller farm in Rancho Santa Fe by 2009
The Mabees moved to California in 1941 from Iowa and built a corner grocery store in San Diego into the Big Bear supermarket chain. From the profits of Big Bear, which was sold in 1991, Golden Eagle Farm was born. In 1984 Mabee founded the Golden Eagle Insurance, a workers' compensation carrier in California. The company was sold in 1997 after a battle with California insurance regulators.9

Ruth Pors was born Edna Ruth Mann in Regina, Saskatchewan on Feb. 7, 1925. She was the only child of John Fletcher Mann and Dr. Edna Kelley Mann.
Ruth spent much of her childhood growing up in Hamilton, Ontario, where she graduated from high school. She met her husband, the late William (Bill) Perron Pors, at Milton College and they were married March 31, 1951, in Rockford, Ill.
They moved to Madison in 1953 where Bill graduated from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1955. The couple then moved to Marshfield where Bill joined his father, Charles Miller Pors in the Pors and Pors law firm. In 1964 they moved to Harvey, Ill., where Bill directed a Savings and Loan and opened his own law office. He died in August 1965 of a heart attack at the age of 39. Ruth moved back to Marshfield with her four children the following year and was employed by Citizens Bank until her retirement.
Ruth was active in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), PEO, Marshfield Upham House and St. Alban's Episcopal Church. She was an amateur genealogist and historian and contributed to "The Marshfield Story 1872-1997," which was published by the Marshfield History Project. Her courage and dedication to her children, friends, and the organizations she cherished will always be remembered.
Ruth is survived by her three sons, Charles Miller Pors II (Jenny Vanderlin-Pors) of Madison, Thomas Mann Pors (Elena Korakianitou) of Seattle, Wash., Richard William Pors of Madison; grandson Alexandros William Pors attending Western Washington University in Bellingham, Wash; and step-grandson Pavlos Nelson (Louisiana).
Ruth was also preceded in death by her daughter, Janice Ann Pors who died in 1974. The losses of both her husband and daughter marked her life, causing more sadness than a wife and mother should bear at such a young age.
Funeral services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 27, 2010, at St. Alban's Episcopal Church, Marshfield with a coffee hour immediately following. Reverend Deacon Georgeanne Cusic will officiate. A family burial will take place in Hillside Cemetery.

Special thanks are given to the Purdy Retirement Home, the nursing staff at Ingleside Nursing Home in Mt. Horeb, Wis., and Dr. Jodi McGraw (Barneveld) for their loving care and compassion.
Throughout her illness, Ruth remained true to her soul and personality -- kind, loving and always with a smile.6 
Burial She was buried at Hillside Cemetery, Marshfield, Wood County, Wisconsin.6

While there he also visited Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington. His trip included a visit with Kim and Gary Mabee and the opportunity to see the Mabee Farm House at Rotterdam Junction. He finished with a visit with Joe and Jan -- good friends in the Northeast. He was so grateful to be able to attend the reunion and was very appreciative of his hosts and friends on the trip, including Jack and Mary Maybee, George Franchere, De Brenner, Harold Maybee (a brother to his good friend Mel Maybee) Kim and Gary and others of the family.
Jack was always busy, planning new projects and experimenting with new recipes. His cookbooks and recipes were famous worldwide. He sometimes supplemented his income as Santa Claus and other personalities whose portraits were translated into beautiful Christmas cards and advertisements. Besides his sourdough business he also, in his earlier years, was a deck hand on riverboats, a trader in Alaska with his Mukluk shop, an official for the Department of Veteran affairs.
Sourdough was an enthusiastic supporter of the Maybee Society and we will miss his calls, letters and visits. To learn more about his life, see Newsletters 8:8; 13:2,3; 19:6; 21:6.7
