DaVAULT, IRENE LOW Irene Low DaVault, a 30 year resident of West Petaluma, expired 9/1/16 after a long illness. She was 75 years old. Her husband, Peter E. Webber, her stepson, Jesse H. Webber, and Jesse's mother, Joyce Webber, were at her side when the end came. Her husband arrived in time to whisper in her ear his love for her and that she had made him a better man. Irene was shy; but when she connected with a person, she was the most caring and generous person one could hope for. She bonded with the manager of the assisted care facility, Toni Pump, and they shared a unique bond. Jesse ran point much of the time and they loved and respected one another. Irene was a talented musician, the proud recipient of a Master's Degree in Music Theory and Composition. Rather than simply playing the piano for her Master's Degree, she chose, instead, to research the composer Shostakovich, and wrote a scholarly thesis which can be found in the Library of Congress. She was the best wife any man could hope for. Her husband declares that, over their 37 years together, she made him a better man. She generously contributed to the Haitians, Syrian Refugees, their friends in New Orleans after Katrina, and bought two 'Arks' from Heifer Foundation for disadvantaged people all over the world. She donated to their friends who were financially crippled due to injuries and illness. She will live on in the hearts and memories of everyone she knew. The world has lost a wonderful person.
