Ingrid Margolin

Dr. Ingrid Cedargreen Margolin died on April 26. Her death was due to complications of dementia with Lewy bodies. She was 67.

Prior to her illness, Margolin was a clinical psychologist and lived in Glendale, where she practiced as a psychologist and mental health provider since 1988, and where she lived and raised her family since 1961.


Ingrid was born in Detroit to Irving “Sid” and Betty Cedargreen in 1942. She moved with her family to Wickenburg, Ariz., at the age of 10 and graduated high school there. While attending Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, she met and married her first husband, Anton Ruf, and had two sons, Bron Ruf and Dana Ruf, who, with their families, are still residents of Glendale. They later adopted a daughter, Chez Ruf.

In her late 30s, Ingrid restarted her higher education, first at Glendale City College, then at Cal State Northridge, and finally, at USC. In 1988 she married Arnold Margolin, and they settled in Glendale. Ingrid was devoted to her family and her therapy practice. When Ingrid became incapacitated by her illness, her two great regrets were having to stop caring for her patients and no longer being to able to be part of her grandchildren’s lives.

In addition to her children and husband, Ingrid is survived by her daughters-in-law, Donna Armstrong Ruf and Lisa Johnson Ruf, and her nine grandchildren, Paul Armstrong, Cameron Silva, Chad Ruf, Michael Ruf, Matthew Ruf, Bailey Semmelroth, Adam Goetchel, Jed Houston and Zack Houston

The sound of her laughter and the illumination of her wisdom still resonates in the lives of all who had the privilege of being in her presence.

Julio Osornia

Julio Lira Osornia died April 25, surrounded by his loved ones. A loving and caring husband, father, brother and uncle, Julio had the gift of bringing laughter and joy to whomever he met.

Julio was born in Mexicali, Mexico, on April 1, 1962 to Maria Luisa and Julio Salazar Osornia, the seventh child of eight children. He was raised in Pomona and was a dedicated and serious student.

Based on his academic achievements in high school, he applied and was accepted to the Claremont Colleges Upward Bound Program for minority students and excelled in the program. He later went on to attend UC Davis, graduating in 1986 with two bachelor of science degrees — one in aeronautical engineering and the other in mechanical engineering. In 2006, Julio received a master of business administration, information systems from the University of Redlands.

In 1987 he joined the National Aeronautics Space Administration family. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory hired him, and he worked there until this year. Also, JPL was where he met and fell in love with Lynn Marie Eckerle. The couple made their home in La Cañada Flintridge.

Julio is survived by his wife Lynn Marie Osornia, daughters Jennifer Lynn Osornia and Lauren Marie Osornia, and his son Kyle Dane Osornia. Julio was a magnificent father, and the love he had for his children was immeasurable.
