Margarita Protasoff - Class of 1969, George Washington H.S., San Francisco, CA
   ( - January 4, 2000)

Tribute towards end:

Rita Protasoff was an actress and changed her name to Diane Heyden sometime during the 1980s. She was of Russian decent, born in China, moved to Paraguay in 1953, then to Cleveland, OH in 1958, finally to San Francisco in 1960. She was fluent in Russian, Spanish and English, with no trace of a foreign accent. Once she graduated from GWHS, she moved to Canada for a couple of years, returned briefly to SF and lived with my mother, then moved to Mexico for several years. Eventually, she moved back to the USA and settled in an upscale neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Rita was my best friend from age 11 through mid-adulthood. We both attended Argonne Elementary School, though Rita was in the year behind me. As kids we hung out at Argonne Playground on 18th Ave, playing ping-pong, hop-scotch, jacks and other popular games of the time. During Summer vacations, we would sneak into the Fun House at Playland-at-the-Beach, riding down that wonderful FAST wooden slide on burlap sacks or figuring out how to stay on the spinning wheel; only to discover that it was more fun to slide off. We also went swimming at Rossi Swimming Pool. In our early teens we took walks to China Beach, around the Sea Cliff neighborhood and the Presidio, took the 38 Geary downtown to the Emporium and rode their roof rides during the Christmas season. As mid teens we hung out in the Haight-Ashbury during The Summer of Love 1967; sitting on the sidewalk for hours, just watching the world go by or taking in an occasional free concert in the Golden Gate Park. Together we would hitch-hike to Sausalito and back, just to get a bit of sunshine. Such carefree days and nothing bad ever happened to us. Like most teens, we thought we were invincible. It was a great period in time to grow up in San Francisco and through all the laughter and only a few tears was my best friend Rita.

Christina Rushton - Class of 1985, Christopher Columbus H.S., Miami, FL
   ( - 5/19/2017) Christina Rushton-Power, also known as “Chrissy” [to few] and “Christine” [to even fewer], passed away suddenly but peacefully in her home on Friday, May 19, 2017 at the age of 49. Christina was born on October 26, 1967 in Boston, MA to Jim Rushton and Barbara DeFiore and was a graduate of Christopher Columbus High School. She enjoyed a diverse career of occupations ranging from elementary school lunch monitor to pharmacy technician. Whatever the occupation it always involved helping others, she loved surrounding herself with people and made it her duty to spread love to her coworkers and customers. Christina’s most recent jobs, as a CVS Pharmacy technician and bus driver for city of Newburyport’s Council on Aging, will be the ones that are remembered most vividly by the people whose lives she touched.nOf all the occupations she held over her lifetime, her most important job was being a loving, devoted, and dedicated mother. Christina’s main topic of discussion with her coworkers and customers was how proud she was of her children, Gavin and Samantha. You could ask any regular customer who entered CVS where they had graduated from college and you would most likely receive a correct response. Christina was fiercely proud of them and their accomplishments and she never shied away from sharing so. For those who knew her more intimately, they would remember her fondness of Batman merchandise where she had a Batman steering wheel cover and figurines set on her car’s dashboard. She also loved decorating her home with memorabilia (toys, knick-knacks, watches, t-shirts, you name it) and photos of friends and family. She also had a special place in her heart for the beach where she would spend hours collecting every shell and piece of sea glass along the ocean’s shore.nIf you asked anyone to describe Christina, the word ‘dull’ would never be used. She was an eccentric soul (sometimes even a little crazy and overbearing) with a world of unselfish love in her heart. In Christina’s own words, she was ‘all that and a bag of chips’. In her short time with us Christina touched many lives with her outgoing personality and loving spirit and the world has lost a little of its glitter with her passing.nShe is survived by her children Gavin and Samantha Power, her siblings and in-laws, Shawn & Donna Ritchea, Cheryl & Bill Callahan, Stephen Power, Chris and Garth Rushton, her niece and nephew Molly & Billy Callahan, her father Jim, and her companion Ron O’Leary. Family and friends may call on Thursday May 25, 2017 from 4:00 to 8:00 PM at the Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home 193 High St. Newburyport, MA 01950. Parking available behind the Funeral Home. Funeral Services and burial will be private. In lieu of flowers we ask that you make a donation in Christina’s name to the Friends of the Newburyport Council on Aging, PO Box 550, Newburyport, MA. 01950. Reported by: Peter J.
