Our Staff

Board of Directors - Mark and Junia Sigsworth

Mark ("Radar") and Junie became the Managers of Sherwood Forest Motel in 1986, when they moved to Garberville with their two children, David and Tanner. The motel was owned by Junie's father, Earl Mitchell, who purchased Sherwood Forest from the Olson family in the 1970s.

Earl passed away in 2002, and Radar and Junie remained Managers until 2018, when they retired from the family business.

They remain on the Board of Directors, however, so they can continue to tell everyone what to do :)

Radar is also an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), and has been for over 35 years; He was active in the local Volunteer Fire Department for over 20 years, and has taught classes at College of the Redwoods in Eureka, as well as conducting trainings with various Emergency Services organizations.

When he isn't saving people, he loves riding motorcycles and fixing old cars.

Junie enjoys spending time with her grandson, exploring the outdoors, and is also a Master Gardener. She loves cats, and is an avid proponent of animal rescue. A small portion of our revenue is generously donated to our local animal shelter - see our Community Involvement page for more details!
