I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

I had the pleasure of knowing Mr.. Bernard for about 15 years.  He always had an interesting story to tell.  He also was very proud of his father who was a family doctor.  He was always working and restoring older cars and trucks which was his passion and wanted to tell you all about it.  I know he will be missed my his family, friends, and loved ones.

I knew Mr. Bernard when I was a teenager and a member of Williamsburg Baptist Church.  He always made a point of stopping and talking to me and other young adults.  We frequently discussed his trucks, and he was clearly enthusiastic about them and enjoyed sharing that enthusiasm.  It was impossible not to share in his friendship and excitement.  It is a sad thing to hear of his passing, but I am grateful to have had him in my life.

Doris McKewan Lindler




BIRTHDAY: Monday, Oct 10, 1921
DIED: Thursday, Feb 09, 2012
RESIDENCE: Williamsburg, Virginia













Obituary

Williamsburg-

Doris McKewan Lindler

Doris was born on October 10, 1921 in Manchester, England and died February 9, 2012 in Hospice House of Williamsburg, Virginia.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, William (Bill) C. Lindler in 1989; her parents Robert Hugo McKewan and Jessie Leary McKewan and by her brother, Ronnie, who died in the flu epidemic of 1919 before she was born.

Doris grew up in Manchester surrounded by an extended family that was very close. She was active in Girl Guides and was an avid ballroom dancer. At the beginning of WWII she worked for the Admiralty and also helped her parents in their hotel and pub where she met Bill who was in the Air Force and stationed in England. They married on August 27, 1945 and the bells in the church were rung for the first peaceful reason since the beginning of the war. During the war the bells were used as an air raid warning only.

During their marriage they were stationed in many places. Their stay in Germany in the early 1950’s had Doris working for the OSI where she used her skills in several languages to great benefit. Following a stay in Texas, where she became involved in Girls Scouts, they were stationed in England. Doris loved being in her homeland and enjoyed having her daughters experience England and meet the extended family. In England she was very active in Girl Scouts and went to several international conferences while being a Brownie Leader.

Doris & Bill settled in Williamsburg in 1964. Doris was a founding member of the Kingspoint Garden Club and the Kingspoint Woman’s Club.
She was active in the garden club until she was no longer able to get out. She loved flowers and gardening and she and Bill spent many hours working in their yard.

Doris stayed active in Girl Scouts until the 1970’s, when all her “charges” had graduated from the senior program, many as First Class scouts.

She loved to play bridge and played regularly until last December. Her Thursday Bridge Ladies helped celebrate her 90th birthday at a party in October and a good time was had by all.

During her life Doris remained fiercely independent and maintained the “British stiff upper lip” staying in her home until the week prior to her death. She is survived by her daughters, Megan McKewan, Elizabeth (Betty) Gilbert, her son-in-law, Rick Lewis, her grandson Dylan Gilbert. and her faithful Maltese Max.


Doris was a parishioner at Bruton Parish Church for over 45 years and a member of the Altar Guild for many years.


Doris knitted and crocheted afghans for the Heritage Humane Society fundraisers until the end of her life.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Heritage Humane Society, 430 Waller Mill Road, Williamsburg, Virginia, 23185 in her name.

A service will be held, Monday, February 13, 2012 at 11:00AM at Bruton Parish Church. Interment will follow at Williamsburg Memorial Park.

The family will receive friends Sunday, February 12, 2012 from 6-8:00 PM at Bucktrout of Williamsburg Funeral Home.

A reception will follow after the interment at the family’s home; 102 Fern Court, Williamsburg, Virginia 23185.

Doris A. Cone, Nee Floyd/Collier




DIED: Saturday, Feb 04, 2012
RESIDENCE: Williamsburg, Virginia













Obituary

Doris A. Cone, Nee Floyd/Collier
Born, May 12, 1918
Died, February 4, 2012
Doris Cone, a resident of Williamsburg, Va. since May, 1965, died on February 4th at Morningside Assisted Living Facility, where she has resided since June, 2009.
Doris was born and raised in Catonsville, MD, a suburb of Baltimore. She had three brothers and one sister who all preceded her in death. They were; Donald (Marie), Gilbert (Jo), Neil (Evelyn) and Audrey. Doris was married to Elmer (Jack) Fleming Floyd for 12 years, until his untimely death in January, 1950, at the hands of a drunken driver. Doris and Jack had 7 children together. They were; Mary (deceased, 2011), Donald (deceased, 1993), Jack, of Chicago, Doris Ann (deceased, 2005), Jim (Karen) of Michigan, Daniel, and Thomas (Calif).  Doris also leaves behind a loving niece, Linda (George, deceased, 2010) from Dundalk, Md.
In 1952 Doris met and married James G. Cone (deceased, 1976) in Virginia. They lost their only child at birth. From 1952 until 1965 the couple lived in Essex, MD, a small community NE of Baltimore where Doris worked at the Martin Marietta Aerospace Co. Part of her responsibilities involved the assembly of the cockpit instrumentation panel for the Gemini Space crafts.
While residing in Williamsburg, Doris worked at the Eastern State Mental Health Facility as the manager/Instructor of the Sewing Department.  This Department was instrumental in teaching residents the art of sewing and was known for creating and assembling all of the costumes and uniforms worn by the staff of Colonial Williamsburg.
Following her retirement from Eastern State in 1983, Doris kept active and very busy running her own Sewing business which provided the padding used by Department stores to fill out the mannequins shape displaying their clothing.
After selling the business, after her health began to deteriorate, Doris managed to engage in another passion of hers …reading. Doris was a prolific reader and also enjoyed following the goings on in Washington with a keen eye for the inevitable “Hog wash” as she referred to anything she disagreed with…which was plenty!  She was often teased about the intensity of her beliefs as she would often bang the tabletop with emphasis in making a point….much to the delight of the witnesses. To this day one can see the visible indentation in the tabletop where she sat and held sway!!  One of Doris’s favorite sayings in moments of frustration, in lieu of expletives, was “Jesus, Mary and Joseph.”  Now that she is in Heaven with our Savior, she will have the opportunity to meet Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, and have to explain the frequency with which she called upon them.”!!!
Doris was a warm, caring, kind hearted and personable woman of great compassion. She had that indefinable gift of making everyone she spoke with feel as though they were the only one that mattered. Her love of family was only paralleled by the pride in accomplishments achieved by her children.

I was sitting at a red light waiting for a funeral procession to pass by when I saw the fire trucks in the line. I had a bad feeling about who it was about.

I am so sorry I can’t be there with you, but wanted to express my sincerest condolences for you Louise and your family.  Bob gave me my “second chance” when I returned to the WFD in 1979. And now, in my “semi-retirement,”  I count my memories of the many times we all shared as prescious and wanted you to know that!  I was honored to be a part of it all and count it a blessing of Bob’s shared faith in our Lord!

Bob and I spent some time together while we attend Cradock High School, and he and I worked together when he was the Williamsburg Fire Chief, and I was an Arson Investigator with the VA State Police.  I will always remember the wonderful way he treated those who had lost their businesses or homes to fire, and his generousity.  He will certainly be missed and remembered by all of us!

Bernie Kirsch
Tuesday, Feb 07, 2012 at 08:18am

Bobby Bailey was one of the first classmates I met in Cradock High School nearly sixty years ago, and he has remained my friend for all of those years.  His heart was weak and failed him at the end but it was a big heart for his many friends. His loss will be mourned by many who had not seen him in recent years, but loved him nonetheless.

My condolences to his family and many friends. He will live on in the thoughts of the many people whose lives he touched.

I’m Kathy Griffin’s brother in law.  I only had the pleasure to meet Mr. Bailey a few times over the years.  He was a wonderfully warm and gracious man.  He gave Rollie, one of my boys, a fire helmet when Rollie was about five years old (he’s almost 24 now).  The helmet is still proudly on display in my home.  Please accept my deepest condolences on behalf of my family in Mr. Bailey’s passing.  I hope everyone remembers him for the good man he was, and I hope everyone remembers he’ll always be in their lives forever.

Michael Bucci




DIED: Tuesday, Jan 24, 2012













Obituary

Mike Bucci passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 24, after a four year battle with cancer. He passed peacefully surrounded by his family.  Mike is survived by his wife Diana, his parents Alfred and Madaline Bucci, his sister Thomasina and her husband Omar Abdoe, all from New Castle, Pa., niece Lisa DePorzio of Seven Springs, Pa.,
sons Mark and his wife Courtney of Hampton, Va., and Scott and his wife Melissa and twin grandsons, Leo and Hays of Midlothian, Va.

Mike was born in New Castle, Pa., on March 5, 1944.  He played football at Shenango High School, earning state honors and a football scholarship to the College of
William & Mary. Mike attended William & Mary from 1962 to 1966, playing for the Indians under coaches Milt Drewer and Marv Levy.  Mike remained an avid supporter of William & Mary his entire life and was a past president of the Quarterback Club and
Order of the White Jacket.

After graduation, Mike stayed in the Williamsburg area and worked as a teacher
and in other capacities with the local school system for the next 27 years.  He was the head football coach and athletic director at James Blair High School and Lafayette High School when it was founded.  The Lafayette Ram football team enjoyed success under Mike’s direction, having an undefeated regular season in 1973 and several winning seasons thereafter.  A major pleasure in his life was his affiliation with the coaches and fine young men who played at James Blair and Lafayette during his tenure and with the administrators, fellow teachers, and students with whom he worked.

In 1977, Mike joined Murphy & McCardle Realty, working as a realtor part time during the school year and full time during the summer. In 1992, Mike became sales manager for McCardle Realty, and later Prudential McCardle Realty and was a past
President of the Williamsburg Area Association of Realtors.

Mike will be remembered by his friends and family for his affable personality, his cookouts, his jovial sense of humor, his friendly competitive spirit at golf and bocce, and his love of life.

A viewing will be held on Friday, January 27, 2012 at Bucktrout Funeral Home in Williamsburg from 6 to 8 p.m., and the funeral service will be held at St. Bede Catholic Church on Saturday at 11 a.m. on Ironbound Road.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Mike’s name to the HEYFARL walk on scholarship fund at William & Mary, P.O. Box 399, Williamsburg, Va. 23187.

Mike was a classmate of mine at the College of William and Mary and I will always remember him as a big guy with a great smile and a fantastic football player.  He loved our College and the Williamsburg community so much that he dedicated his life’s work to making them an even better place in which to live and learn.  He will be missed by family and friends, and, like me, his classmates.  Mike, you did well, and made this William and Mary grad proud to have known you.

This name Mike Bucci and the word “obit” just didn’t sound right when I got the email tonite.  What a shock….. “Gone too soon” .  My condolences to the whole family.
I knew Mike at William & Mary from ‘62-‘66.  You could tell back then that he was “one of the good guys”.....  well done, Mike, You made your mark & you’ll be missed.  Looks like he had a great famly and accomplished much in his time here on earth…...

Our thoughts are with the Bucci family right now.  He was a great family friend that shared the love of W&M and was a life long neighbor in Windsor Forest.  He always made everyone feel welcome and you couldn’t help but smile by just being around him.  Prayers go out to Diana, Mark, and Scott at this difficult time.

My condolences to the Bucci family.  It was an honor to kind of know Mike from a short distance. I watched Mike coach Football at Lafayette HS when I was a freshman there.. I also remember him at St.Bede s church from time to time. He was also gracious enough to attend my father’s memorial when he passed in November 2009.  Through out all those years and occasions Mike always brought a bright smile and a genuine happiness, and had a great ability to share it with us all!
He will be missed, and I too am honored to have gotten to have met him and spent a little time with him.

My condolences to the family.  I was part of the state championship run at the conception of Lafayette High School. Coach Bucci was very proud of that team and even more proud of his family.  I remembered his son Scott was born sometime during or shortly after the season. I don’t know whether it was a joke or not,but he told us that Scott was named after one of the players. Coach Bucci will be missed by all that he came in contact with. God blessed the family and may Heaven smile upon you.

My condolences to Diane, Scott, Mark and the entire family. I worked with Mike @ Prudential McCardle from 2002-2005; always a smile on his face, love of life and his little quirk of playing “Bucci ball”. Even for the short time I worked with you Mike, I have to say that we have lost a great person and you will be sadly missed.

  He was genuine…he was “The Coach”!  His presence has been sorely missed…

I would like to add my condolences to Mike’s family as you deal with his loss.  It was my great pleasure to renew my friendship with Mike in 1994, 30 years after I left WM.  We picked up right where we left off and talked about our common experiences at the college in the early 60’s.  I am sure that what I perceived is what everyone else who knew Mike observed as well—-he was a genuinely good man and a great friend.  It was my honor to have been a small part of his life,

Richard Bing

My condolences to the family. I knew Mike when he was a young coach out of college in 1967 and I was a junior at James Blair High School. He was a straight shooter and a great guy. Saw him occasionally through the years and he always had that great smile.

Charlotte Goodfellow Rhodes




DIED: Monday, Jan 16, 2012
RESIDENCE: Williamsburg, VA













Obituary

Charlotte Goodfellow Rhodes, a native of Charmouth, Dorset England passed away peacefully on January 16 surrounded by her family. She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Ada Virginia Goodfellow; her twin sister, Charlotte; her brother, John and her husband, Roy. She is survived by her daughter, Victoria Rhodes-White, husband, Ken and his children Jessica and Jason; her daughter, Charlotte Strotmeyer, husband Bob and his daughter Catherine; her son, John Rhodes, wife Caroline, and her beloved grandchildren, Carrie and C J; as well as her dear godchild, Sheila Roebuck, extended family Philip Newbery and wife Brook, the Roebuck siblings, Sarah Koch, Rev. Andrew Bradley, her “adopted” W & M college boys, friends and relatives in England.

Charlotte led a very fascinating life. She was born a twin and named Virginia, but when her twin sister, Charlotte, died; she had to be rechristened and was renamed her sister’s name. She always thought it interesting that she came to live in Virginia, bringing the name back to her. Though her parents were quite elderly when she was born, she was joined a few years later by a brother. Together they were educated by governesses at the Limes School in Charmouth. After completing her studies there and at a finishing school; she then became a teacher at the school, teaching first grade. She loved to tell everyone she taught the 3 R’s, and to share her stories about the ghostly shroud who inhabited the school. Two of her former students have even been over here to visit her.

Aside from her teaching career, Charlotte also enjoyed an interesting background in entertainment. Gifted musically, she studied piano and was trained vocally, performing under the stage name of Dawn Williams. She and her brother, who had his letters from the London Royal Academy of Music, were members of Grey Newbery and his Band, and they toured all over the southwest of England. Charlotte was the pianist and singer, and at the time was engaged to the late Jack Newbery, who was the drummer in the band. Though they hadn’t kept in touch since Charlotte left England; their friendship was rekindled 35 years later following a chance run-in during a trip with her daughters. Charlotte also danced professionally and taught ballet and tap. One of her former students emigrated to Canada and is still dancing today.

It was during her time in England that she met her future husband, Roy Snead Rhodes , a sergeant in the US Army. After teaching all day she would volunteer nightly at a local canteen making sandwiches for the military stationed in her village. She and Roy were married in Charmouth two weeks before D-Day, and they only saw each other briefly before he landed on the beaches of Normandy. After World War II ended he returned to America and she didn’t see him again for another few years when he returned to England to finally begin their married life. By then her mother had passed away in England and her brother in Egypt; and she was caring for her elderly father. Eventually they would all immigrate to the United States and settle in Williamsburg where Roy would begin a business and resume playing baseball. Charlotte soon began raising three children and participating in school and community activities. With Roy’s involvement in the American Legion, Chamber of Commerce, Exchange Club and Friends of the College; Charlotte served proudly alongside her husband. The family were parishioners of Bruton Parish Church, where Charlotte served on the altar guild. She was a member of the British Wives Club and enjoyed entertaining her fellow countrymen. She will be most remembered for being that great British walker, who used to cover about 4 miles every day. When her grandchildren came along she boasted about wearing out so many strollers with all the “walkie palkies”. She was an avid believer in the great outdoors and loved her trees, often singing Joyce Kilmer’s “A Poem as Lovely as a Tree.” She often talked of wanting to be a gypsy and living in a forest, so she surrounded her home with big evergreens. She watched 3 generations play baseball, but never really understood the game: however, after Roy passed she continued his baseball tradition, and traveled miles with family to follow her grandson’s games.

Charlotte was a great Mom, Grandmums and Aunty Charlotte, and to those of us who loved and will sorely miss her, we celebrate her life and how much she touched all of us. Her children fondly remember and thank her for all the wonderfully diverse people she introduced into their lives. She always had an open door policy. The family would like to thank the caring Sentara nurses and staff on 3 North.  Funeral arrangements are private and being handled by Bucktrout Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers and in Charlotte’s memory, the family requests that you honor her wishes by taking a walk, planting a tree or feeding a hungry child. Donations can also be made to your favorite charity.

Some of my earlieast and fondest childhood memories were our family trips to Williamsburg to visit.  I loved my aunt Edna and uncle Singer but would be bugging my folks to go visit the Rhodes family very shortly after we would arrive.  Mrs. Rhodes always had a warm smile and the sparkle in her eyes made me feel like a welcomed family member.  It is not surprising that people from all walks of life would come from great distances to visit her.  She was one of the most caring,  interesting, and incredible people that I have ever had the pleasure to know.  She will be always be with us!

I am so sorry for the loss of your wife, mother, grandmother and friend.  I have known Mrs Robertson for so many years.  The first time I met her was when she was working in the cafeteria at the original Magruder Elementary School.  She was such a sweet lady and always made my day as a young girl.  I went to school with Calvin and Jean may not remember, but I went with you one time to Norfolk (I think) just so you would have someone to ride with you.  That has been many years ago, but seems like only yesterday.  I know your mother will be missed, but always cherish all her memories.  My mother has been gone 27 years, but she lives on in my heart and I think of her everyday.  My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time.  .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Anna Farrell Forbes




BIRTHDAY: Sunday, Mar 02, 1913
DIED: Saturday, Dec 31, 2011













Obituary

Williamsburg—

Anna Farrell Forbes was born in Corning, New York, March 2, 1913, the second of three daughters of William Mathew and Anna Bishop Farrell. Following graduation from Corning Free Academy, Anna left for Manhattan where she attended and graduated from the Katherine Gibbs School.

She had two careers. The first with Montgomery Ward and Company when it was one of two largest retail chain groups in the country. Starting as a secretary she advanced to positions in Personnel, Office Management and Operating. As assistant to the Operating Manager for the stores in the New York Region (one of five regions in the company) she was the only female in the company to serve in this capacity.

It was at Wards that she met her husband whom she interviewed for a trainee position in the stores. At that time he remarked to a friend - “I am coming back some day to marry that Farrell girl”. It was 10 years before they met again. They were married at St. Joan of Arc Church, Jackson Heights, New York in June 1944. Two children were born to that union: Allan Branch and Wilson Bruce.

Her second career was at the Marshall-Wythe School of the College of William and Mary where she started as Secretary to the Dean, a position which eventually turned into Assistant to the Dean and Registrar of the Law School.

She accompanied her husband on assignments to California, back to New York, to Texas, Illinois, back again to New York and then to Williamsburg, Va.

Predeceased by her husband, she is survived by her sons, both of whom reside in Williamsburg and two granddaughters, Meredith Forbes of Herndon, Va. and Natalie Forbes of Williamsburg.

A graveside service will be held at Cedar Grove Cemetery, Thursday, January 5, 2012 at 9:30am.  Memorial donations may be made to the James City County Fire and Rescue.

Obituary

Williamsburg-

Donald Wilson Knoepfler died peacefully at his home in Williamsburg, Virginia, on January 2, 2012. His warmth and wry wit will be remembered and missed by his family, colleagues, friends, and hundred of former students.
He was born in Sioux City, Iowa, on September 18, 1931, the son of Karl John Knoepfler and Corinne Record Knoepfler. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brothers, Robert J. Knoepfler and James C. Knoepfler.
Donald is survived by his wife of 40 years, Annette Robinson Knoepfler, and their children, Karl Knoepfler, his wife Janice and children Karlie and Allie, of Omaha, NE; William Doughman and his wife Nancy, of Albertville, MN; Carol Knoepfler of Omaha, NE; James Doughman, his wife Heej Ko and children Ryan and Alexander, of Wilton, CT; Thomas Doughman, his wife Lori and children Mariah and Hannah, of Sherwood, WI; Amy Knoepfler Vinton, her husband Brian and children Margaret and Katherine, of Gibbon, NE; Sarah Knoepfler of Omaha, NE; and Robert Knoepfler and his wife Tawnya, of Duluth, MN.
At age 8, Donald moved to Iowa City, IA, and was a graduate of City High and the University of Iowa, with degrees in Speech and Dramatic Arts. He was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity and was the “voice” of the University of Iowa Marching Band and Scottish Highlanders. During the Korean Conflict, he served as a US Air Force officer in the 680th Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron. In 1953, as a television director, he helped put WMT-TV, the first eastern Iowa television channel, on the air in Cedar Rapids.
He then began his career as Professor of Communications, teaching at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Oregon, the University of Minnesota, Indiana State University, and the University of Iowa. After a 24-year tenure at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, where he also held the post of Chairman of the Department of Communication, Donald retired in 1996. His work in the classroom and television studio was especially innovative and creative, and he gave a generous counsel to generations of students.
Donald was a printer of hand-set, limited edition books, the proprietor, along with his wife, of The Buttonmaker Press. He was particularly proud of his edition of an original Mark Twain manuscript, “The Quaker City Holy Land Excursion,” which was the basis of Innocents Abroad. Donald designed and printed on 19th century antique presses, including an 1843 Columbian press, which was later donated to the University of Iowa Center for the Book, and which is on permanent display in the University’s Main Library.
After retiring to Williamsburg, he became an active member of Bruton Parish Church, where he was a lay reader. He was also a volunteer interpreter with the Jamestown Rediscovery Archeological Project.
Services will be held at Bruton Parish Church on Saturday, January 14, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. A reception will immediately follow at the Bruton Parish House. Interment will take place at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, January 28, 2012, at Oakland Cemetery, Iowa City, IA. Memorials may be made to Bruton Parish Church, 331 Duke of Gloucester St., Williamsburg, VA 23185, or the University of Iowa Foundation, Center of the Book, 1 West Park Road, Iowa City, IA 52242.
Bucktrout of Williamsburg Funeral Home and Lensing Funeral Home of Iowa City are in charge of arrangements.

I was so very sorry to read of Don’s passing.  He was one of my favorite professors at UNO in the early 80s.  What a terrific teacher.  He knew a lot about a lot of things, he had a great sense of humor, and he let you know if you weren’t performing to the standard he knew you could meet.  I was lucky to have been one of his students.

May you find a little extra comfort in the fact that he reached so many fortunate students through the years.

  My husband, Jim, and I are so sorry for your loss.  Helen was wonderful to my mother, Paralee Bethany, and to us, when we became her clients for furniture and custom drapes at Ethan Allen.  Helen introduced us to Tony and his fantastic furniture restoration abilities and together they took pleasure in how happy they made my mother when family heirloom pieces were restored.  We will always be grateful for the enthusiasm and care that so marked Helen’s life and for the joy that she and Tony brought to my mother in the last years of her life.  May God bless all of you.  Melissa and Jim Maness

Tony and family,

I remember Helen mostly for how it felt to have her as a friend….Great!  Over the 30 years I’ve known Helen, I always felt like a bigger and better person when in Helen’s presence.  Helen spread her joy of life to everyone around her with hugs, smiles, food, encouragement, wisdom and love. 

No one knows the loss of Helen more than Tony, a husband like no other and a man Helen loved so dearly.  You are lucky to have had each other in your lives. 

I think of you, Tony, and Helen every day.

Dear Tony,

Loveable, huggable Helen. The first thing that came to me when I heard that Helen had passed away. You have been on my mind every day since I called you and found out that Helen was fighting cancer. There are touches of her all over my house and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment with her the past three years that I had known her. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. There are so many of us that will miss Helen and I hope that gives you and your family some strength.  Jean

Dear Tony and Family,
  We are so sorry and will miss Helen so much.  There are no words, she was a special friend.  Although we met at Ethan Allen many years ago and her touches are everywhere you both were so much more to us.  Know we are here for you always.  I pray for peace for all of you.
Love and God Bless,
Loretta

Steve and I are so sorry to hear about Helen.  She always made me smile and hearing her laugh was such a joy.  The first time we met was when she dropped 10 year old Virginia off at our house to spend the afternoon with Lesley.  If Helen had planned a couple of hours to herself, it didn’t work out that way.  We spent the entire afternoon getting to know each other and finding out how much we had in common.  It was like meeting an old friend…I will miss her very much.  We send our love and prayers to your entire family.

I will remember Helen as an always smiling, dressed to the nines, beautiful woman who lit up every room, and touched the hearts of everyone she met.

When Chris and I visiting their Williamsburg home with Virginia and her family, Helen welcomed my husband and I with open arms and was the epitome of a graceful host.

Virginia - as one of my oldest and most dearest friends, almost every childhood memory of you and I involves Helen. Painting our faces like cats (those photos are priceless), teaching me how to eat spaghetti with a spoon, cooking us chocolate chip pancakes after our sleepovers, performing The Miracle Worker at the table (you both deserve Oscars for that!!!)

Tony and Virginia, you are both in my heart and prayers.

I will miss Helen very much. When I think of her it will always bring a smile to my face.

Love always, Lesley

Mrs. Helen Conti, an angel in true form that touched the hearts of many. We may never know or understand the reasons for her leaving but we will always know and understand that she was a blessing to anyone she came in contact with. Everytime she graced me with her presence, she made me smile. I appreciate all that she has done. All the cookies and fudge that were made can now be shared with the people above to enjoy the same that I have been blessed to. May you rest in peace and your spirit always be remebered. Love Always

I met Helen thru Ethan Allen.  After our session, she looked at me and said “can I hug you? I am a hugger’....I fell in love with her right then! she was amazingly talented and personable. and she understoood how to work with me by simplifying my options! lol. she also involved my young daughter in decisions which my girl remembers still! my house is full of Ethan Allen not so much because I love their furniture, but because I only trusted Helen to help me! The last room she helped me with is my Master bedroom. A chair was delayed. It was delivered on Wednesday, with the sad news that my wonderful Helen had passed away. I feel it was her last gift to me and my family! I looked up to heaven, where I know she is now, and thanked her….and also asked her exactly where was this chair supposed to go? I will miss her and I didn’t even know her for long. i can’t imagine the grief your family must feel now. I am sorry for your loss and sadness. She was a lovely person and the world is a bit dimmer now that she is gone. but I believe in Heaven and the Lord and just know she is dancing with Jesus up there…and possibly rearranging the furniture!

I am sorry so for you loss of your beloved wife and best friend.  Our short time as an extended family at Busch Gardens gave us the honor of knowing her through your loving stories.  May God keep and bless you and your family.  I will have a Mass said in her honor at St. Bebe’s. 
My deepest regrets…...Anne Marie Wood

My rebbe made a startling statement. The following day the road is returned to normality and is ‘business as usual’. Most gamers will love it, regardless of your age or preference. <a >hight</a> But with greener pastures comes the need to start over. It can increase urination, aid with digestion, stimulate the immune system, increase the production of collagen, it can help detoxify the body and regulate the menstruation cycle.

Lori and the rest of you.

I was saddened to read about the loss of your father, and further saddened to learn that your mother had died sometime earlier. I would occasionally talk with your mom while I was passing through the old hospital with various patients on an ambulance cot. She seemed like a special woman, and I suspect losing her shortened your dad’s life too.

I realize how painful this time may be and I pray that each of you find the peace you need.

Dear Worth:  Betty and Worth were our neighbors from 1971 until 1985 when I re-married and moved to the Coves.  Betty was a wonderful neighbor and helped introduce me to the community.  She was also very gracious and kind to my parents whenever they visited.  She was an extremely capable person but also very modest and her bio made me realize how much she had done in her life.  I hope you are doing well and send best regards.  Sincerely, Sarah Houghland

This is a good story and one that is worth reanidg/listening to when one feel’s bleak.  In addition to loving the story about a champion horse being saved from the slaughterhouse, I loved the infusion of post-WW II American history as a backdrop. I did not know what a sorry state the economy was in.I DO remember reanidg a very short piece about Snowman when I was a child and his story always stuck with me as being scantily told. This books does a very good job of fleshing out Snowman and Harry’s story.

I lived next door to Harry for several years.  I could not have asked for a better neighbor - always eager to help with a gardening tip, summer squash recipe and even ran his john deere tractor over my grass when I fell a little behind.  He was so kind to my daughter and they enjoyed eating candy bars and watching cartoons together… I often had to go get her to make her come home!  We have missed having Harry right next door for the past few years, but know he was loved and well cared for living with family.  Harry, we love you and miss you - but know you are with our Savior now.  I feel so blessed to have known you here on earth and will look forward to seeing you again one day.  Love and peace to your family.

It is with sadness that I learned of Kathryn’s passing in my recent copy of the Virginia Gazette, which I still get here in San Diego.  The Ramer Family lived across the street from our family when I was growing up in Williamsburg. I have fond memories of Kathryn, who was an excellent teacher and a great neighbor, always witty and charming with the most delightful sense of wry humor I have ever known.  I know her family will miss her wonderful smile and her compassion, as will I, and my heart goes out to all in the Ramer Family in their loss.

Sincerely,
Bob Sigafoes

Helen B. Barton




DIED: Saturday, Oct 08, 2011













Obituary

Helen B. Barton passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 8, at Hospice House in Williamsburg, where she had recently moved from the hospital following complications resulting from a bad fall.  She was 91 years old. 

Born as Helen Bazzle, Mrs. Barton was born in Elkins, West Virginia in 1920, as the second of four children in a family that lived, quite literally, on Main Street.  Her parents were Laura Cooper Bazzle, a school teacher, and Preston Bazzle, who worked for the B&O Railroad, and her siblings were Ernest, Carma, and Hansel.  Helen attended grade school in Elkins and then Elkins High School, where she participated actively in sports and won a varsity letter in track and field.  She then attended Davis & Elkins College, where she studied nursing and received her RN.  (She had initially hoped to study medicine and become a physician, but times were different then and many obstacles faced a woman seeking to become a doctor.) 

Following the outbreak of World War II, Helen enlisted in the Navy Nurse Corps and was commissioned as an Ensign.  After military and nursing training to become a nurse anesthetist in Washington and Florida, she boarded a train to San Francisco (the first time she had ever left the Southeast) and then a naval ship headed for the South Pacific.  She was stationed in various posts throughout that Theatre, including Fiji, New Caledonia, New Hebrides, and Efate, as well as on a US Navy hospital ship.

After the end of the War, Helen was posted to Bethesda Naval Medical Center, near Washington, DC, where she met William Barton, the man who would become her husband of over fifty years.  He was also in the Navy, at that time stationed in Washington with the Bureau of Ships and Naval Research. Family legend has it that he was her patient during a hospitalization, and he always said that the last thing he saw before anesthesia took hold and first after awakening was a lovely woman all in white, whom he subsequently asked out on a date.  Helen told him that she did not date her patients, but somehow he persuaded her, and they later were married at Annapolis on Valentine’s Day in 1945 during their lunch-break, after which they both went back to work for the rest of the day.

The newly-married couple first lived in Washington, DC, and then moved to New York City after their discharges from military service, both as decorated Lieutenant Commanders, when William, a born-and-bred New Yorker, reassumed his pre-war banking career with a thrift institution in the City.  They obtained the lease on their first New York apartment, on East 31st Street in Manhattan, in part by agreeing to purchase its furniture as part of the lease, a few pieces of which they kept for many years for sentimental reasons at a summer home. 

Mrs. Barton continued her career in nursing at Roosevelt Hospital in New York City, leaving the profession (temporarily) in 1951 upon the birth of their son, Jeffrey, but not before her on-call hospital duties had helped the family obtain one of the first telephones installed in a brand new apartment in Stuyvesant Town, a new affordable-housing complex that had been built specifically for returning service-people and their families. 

As her son became older and began school, she resumed her nursing career and worked as an obstetrics nurse, nursing supervisor, and nursing administrator at the New York Infirmary and the Beekman Downtown Hospital in Manhattan; one of the reasons she said she wanted to work at the Infirmary was that it had been originally founded by Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to receive a physician’s degree in the United States.

The Barton family resided in New York City for over thirty years, eventually retiring to what had been their summer home in the Town of Blooming Grove in Orange Country, New York.  They added an apartment in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1980, at first splitting their time between upstate New York and Virginia and then moving full-time to Williamsburg in 1991, where they lived happily for many years.  Helen was predeceased by her husband, William, in 1999.

Mrs. Barton was an avid gardener, enjoyed classes for Seniors at William & Mary, and was a proud member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Military Order of the World Wars, among other alumna, civic, and veterans’ groups.

Helen is survived by her son, Jeffrey Preston (after his grandfather), daughter-in-law, Marilyn, and much-loved granddaughter, Sabrina, of New York, and by her brother and sister-in-law, Ernest and Lillian Bazzle, of Williamsburg.  As a grandmother, she was christened “Grandma Helen” by Miss Sabrina.  All remember her as a sweet and gentle soul with much quiet wisdom.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Bucktrout of Williamsburg and are scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, October 11, at Williamsburg Memorial Park.  In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to Hospice House, 4445 Powhatan Parkway, Williamsburg, VA, 23188.

Charles Leo Coyle




DIED: Friday, Sep 23, 2011













Obituary

Charles Leo Coyle, a retired advertising executive for the Hecht Co. and the News American who was a World War II dive bomber, died of kidney disease Sept. 23 at the Hospice House of Williamsburg, Va. He was 88 and had lived in Towson for many years.

Born in Lynn, Mass., he graduated from Swampscott High School and was an accomplished skier, ice skater and swimmer. He was nicknamed “Dory” because he was a skilled boatsman. He remained a skier and ice skater and enjoyed trips to the Northwest Ice Rink and Ski Liberty.
Shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, he enlisted in the Marine Corps and was trained as a pilot, a role his father, Charles L. Coyle Sr., had in World War I in the Canadian armed forces.

Mr. Coyle was assigned to Mindanao Island, Philippines, and flew Vought F4U Corsairs. He rose to the rank of captain and was on 35 dive-bombing missions as part of a squadron known as the Bombing Banshees. His unit was part of the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, which fought in the Philippines from 1944 to 1945.

In an oral history he made for his family, Mr. Coyle said he provided close air support for ground troops at Malabang in the Philippines. He was among the U.S. forces preparing to invade Japan at the time of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

“He told me he was relieved when the bombs ended the war,” said his daughter, Caryn Coyle of Rodgers Forge. “He had never expected to come home.”

After his discharge, he attended Boston University and managed a family restaurant on Prince Edward Island, Canada. He later went into advertising and worked in marketing for Raymond’s of Boston, Fedway Department Stores in Albuquerque, N.M., and Cook’s Sporting Goods in Denver.

In 1962 and 1963, Mr. Coyle became president of a new 50-store shopping center, the Bazaar International in Riviera Beach, Fla.

When first lady Jacqueline Kennedy and her daughter, Caroline, visited the center, Mr. Coyle escorted them on a tour of its centerpiece, the 230-foot Trylon Tower overlooking Lake Worth.

“Dad always believed that he should do what he loved, and he pursued opportunities across the country,” said his daughter. “He was my biggest supporter and never turned me down, whatever I asked of him.”

In late 1968, Mr. Coyle was named marketing and advertising manager for the Hecht Co. and worked at its flagship store at Howard and Lexington streets. He was active in the Advertising and Professional Club of Baltimore.

He later became a News American executive and handled promotion of the old afternoon paper. He also acted as a spokesman for the publication when it announced a round of layoffs in 1981.

Mr. Coyle helped in the paper’s sponsorship of the annual I Am An American Day Parade. He brought one of his personal heroes, Gregory “Pappy” Boyington, a Medal of Honor winner and Marine Corps ace flier, to be grand marshal of the 1984 parade.

“My father loved parades,” his daughter said. “He would stand on the sides and call out to the politicians by name. He would always cover his heart when the American flag passed by.”

After the paper closed in 1986, Mr. Coyle opened his own business, Charles Coyle Advertising. His clients included Heritage Bank and Hale Intermodal Transport.

He enjoyed Caribbean scuba diving, dancing and bicycle riding.

A Mass was offered Monday at St. Bede Roman Catholic Church in Williamsburg.

In addition to his daughter, survivors include his wife of more than 63 years, the former Claire Norma Stacey; two sons, Colin Coyle of Williamsburg, Va., and Christopher Coyle of Camden, Maine; another daughter, Cheryl Forbes of Ashburn, Va.; a brother, Allison B. Coyle of Nashua, N.H.; his sister, Bette Coyle Hickey of Prince Edward Island; and eight grandchildren.

A service will be held Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at Quantico National Cemetery at 2:00 PM

Obituary

John Joseph Mastricola left his earthly family on September 22, 2011 and now finally has found the peace he so desperately sought here while with us in those short 27 years.

John leaves behind his parents Joan I. and David J. Mastricola of Williamsburg, his brother Bryan D. Mastricola of Williamsburg, maternal grandmother Patricia A. Smith of Sioux City, IA., paternal grandmother Arlene M. Dierbeck of Waterford, WI., 13 aunts and uncles, 24 cousins and his loyal rescued dog Spud.

Your life has been a testament to kindness, hard work, determination and a good sense of humor. I hope to bring the same characteristics to my life and new career in nursing. You have so much to be proud of, just take a look at the crowd of folks at the dinner table at Thanksgiving!

We wanted to offer our condolences at the loss of “Brummy,” a beloved woman.  She will always be remembered for her kindness to people who were fortunate enough to know her, and one of the best and compassionate nurses to those who had her as a health care provider.  May her memory provide comfort to her family and an example for all to live by.

None of us at Jamestown will ever forget Ralph and his tireless efforts to get the word out about Jamestown Rediscovery archaeological work and the rest of James Town. He logged countless volunteer hours for both Preservation Virginia and the National Park Service at Historic Jamestowne and he enriched the visitor experiences with his passion for the place. He spent holidays, birthdays, every chance he got out there, so we were lucky enough to get to know his vastly talented wife, Bonnie, to be charmed by son Boomer, and to hear stories of Susie, her husband and her amazing athletic son Alex. Ralph called my little daughter “superkid” and she called him “grandpa Ralph.” We will never forget him and thank you all for sharing him with us. We are so sorry for your loss.

Donna Jean Tidwell




BIRTHDAY: Friday, Jan 30, 1959
DIED: Saturday, Aug 27, 2011













Obituary

Williamsburg—

Donna Jean Tidwell, wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer on August 27, 2011 at the young age of 52.  She was born in Portsmouth, Va on January 30, 1959, daughter of Thomas E. and Bettye T. Drake.  She was the loyal and loving wife of Paul T. Tidwell for 33 years.  Their marriage was a fine example of true love and served as an inspiration to many.

She was the Preschool director of her church and kept the Lord the center of her life.  The job that she dearly loved was loving the children she took care of in her home.  She was like a mother to many of them and some are grown now with babies of their own,  They loved her deeply, calling her “Mama T, Don Don, Miss Donna, Mom, and Ma”.  She had a big heart and her home was always filled with children and young people.

Many feel she was an angel on earth, spending most of her time and money caring for others.  She was genuine and compassionate, if anyone needed anything, she gave all she had to the point of sacrificing her own needs.  She truly lived her whole life in service to others, loving everyone unconditionally, without ever judging.

Other surviving relatives include:
two sons:
  Tommy and his wife Denise,
  Anthony,
two daughters:
  Brooke,
  Erika and fiance’ Thomas;
sisters:
  Cindy,
  Betty;
brother:
  Ted;

Loretta S Jordan




DIED: Thursday, Aug 25, 2011













Obituary

Loretta Starke Jordan, known to friends and family as “Chick,” of Williamsburg passed away suddenly on August 25.  She was born on July 19, 1930 in Brooklyn, New York to parents Ashby Child Starke and Florence Nelson Starke.  Loretta spent a large part of her adult life in Williamsburg, from 1957 to 1972 and, again, from 1989 until her death.
She is survived by her husband of 66 years, Thomas E. Jordan of Williamsburg, son David Jordan (Debra) of Richmond, and daughter Deborah (Brian) Taber of Williamsburg, siblings Ashby Starke, Jr. of Covington, Evelyn Hall of Ebony, Donald Starke of Emporia, Regina Ashby of Georgetown, South Carolina, and Roger Starke of Gloucester, as well as grandchildren Anne Jordan of Richmond, Elizabeth Devitt of Richmond, Thomas Jordan of Charlottesville, Amelia Barnett of Williamsburg, John Taber of Richmond, and eight great grandchildren.
Loretta will be remembered for the joy and enthusiasm she brought to everything that drew her interest and to those who shared those interests.  She was a tireless worker who always sought ways to become engaged with things that challenged her mind and her talent: her pursuits included painting, pottery, gardening, and anything having to do with Christmas.  She loved her husband, her children, and their families wholly and without reservation, and she was loved by all of them in turn.
A visitation will be conducted at Bucktrout Funeral Home, 4124 Ironbound Road, Williamsburg on Wednesday, August 31 from 6 to 8 pm.  A memorial service will be held at the same location Thursday, September 1 at 10 am.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made either to St. Judes Childrens Hospital , or to the James City County Fire and Rescue Services.

Cousin Earl and family, Chick was everything one could hope for in another person. She always had a smile and a kind word for all.She had a way of making you feel you were special, that she really cared about you and what happened to you. I am the better person for having had her grace my life. Please accept my sympathy as you mourn her passing and my joy as you celebrate her exemplary life.

Love,

Jordan Family,

I just heard of your loss and I am so sorry to hear. I use to play with David and Debbie as a child and loved Chick and Earl. They were friends with my mom and dad and was there for us when my dad passed away. Great friends and just good people.
Please know that my prayers are with all of you at this sad time, and my heart hurts for your loss.

Dear Jordan Family,

You knew when you met her that she was someone special.  Always upbeat, smiling, laughing, always encouraging others.  She always knew just the right thing to say.  She loved her family and it was obvious that they all loved her very much.  She looked forward to celebrating family Birthdays and other family get-togethers. Christmas was always a special time for her and her gift reflected both her love and her talent. “Chick” was always thinking of others first. 
I think she knew the name of every plant and was always sharing plants with neighbors and friends.  She just had a way of making everyone feel special.  I feel so fortunate to have had such a friend as “Chick”.  I can not imagine life without her.

Our family was saddened to view Eleanor’s obituary recently.  I had met her through the Williamsburg Music Club several years ago and visited her in her home, before her fall.  I later visited her several times at the Patriot’s Landing nursing facility.  I always looked forward to chatting with this gentle soul.  Unfortunately, I had difficulty hearing her voice when she spoke with me and my visits dropped off the last year or so of her life.  I hope her passing was peaceful.  She was a lovely lady.  My husband joins in sending our prayers for your family in these transitional days.  Eleanor will be missed by many, I am sure.

Sincerely, Mrs. Esther Gay, 204 Mill Stream Way, 23185

Ero Kaminarides




DIED: Monday, Aug 22, 2011













Obituary

Ero Kaminarides fell asleep unto the Lord on August 22, 2011, at age 68 after a brave 22 month battle with cancer. She passed away comfortably and peacefully at her home surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on February 11, 1943 in Kinshasa, Belgian Congo. She lived with her parents Charalambos & Elli Constantinides and her four brothers Agis, Glafkos, Aeas and Kimon. At the age of six, they moved to their native country of Cyprus to attend Greek elementary and secondary school. She married her husband, John S. Kaminarides of 48 years in 1963. Soon after, she immigrated to the United States in Houston Texas where her husband was pursuing his doctorate degree.
Ero came to the United States speaking only Greek, but through her determination and strong will, she taught herself English by watching Soap Operas and developing a network of friends in her newly adopted country. While in Houston, she gave birth to two children - a daughter, Elli Kaminarides Williams, who resides in Williamsburg, and a son Savvas Kaminarides who resides in New York City. In 1968, Ero and her family moved to Jonesboro Arkansas for her husband to teach at the University where they lived for 32 years. She became a Naturalized American Citizen in 1976.
While a fulltime homemaker, Ero continued to pursue one of her lifelong dreams to obtain a college degree. She enrolled in night classes and at the age of 35 received a Sociology degree with high honors from Arkansas State University in 1978. She later went to work for the Department of Social Services for the State of Arkansas. While in Arkansas, Ero and her husband hosted many students from Cyprus, Greece and other countries while they earned their college degrees.
Ero enjoyed her friends and had a great passion for cooking, handicrafts, gardening, traveling and helping others. Whether through her work, Church, family, friends or neighbors; helping others was central to her life. She retired with her husband to Williamsburg in 2000 to live closer to her newest passion - her grandsons. After retirement, Ero became an avid world traveler and an adventure seeker who even parachuted from a plane at the age of 63. Her zest for life inspired all who knew her.
She is preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband, two children, four brothers and their spouses(living overseas) and her daughter‘s husband Brent Williams and her three grandchildren Alexander, Nicholas, and Christopher Williams of Williamsburg.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday, August 24 from 6 -8 pm with a Trisagion Service at 7:30 pm at Bucktrout Funeral Home. The funeral will be held at 10:00 am on Thursday, August 25 at St. Elpis Greek Orthodox Church in Hopewell, Virginia. A 40 Day Memorial Service will be held in Nicosia Cyprus at St. Eleftherios and a Six Month Memorial Service will be held in Memphis, Tennessee at St. George‘s Greek Orthodox Church.

Memorial Contributions may be made in her memory to any of the following Greek Orthodox Churches that she attended, St. George in Memphis, TN, St. Elpis in Hopewell, VA, St. Demetrios in Williamsburg or Sts. Constantine & Helen in Newport News, VA.

May Her Memory Be Eternal.

John,

We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Mrs. Ero was one of the kindest and most giving persons I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

My family will never forget the week we enjoyed spending with you all in Williamsburg. I had never met you or Mrs. Ero before. You and I had just had a few conversations on the phone discussing some business matters. However, when Mrs. Ero learned my family was coming to visit Williamsburg she insited we meet. She would not take “no” for an answer (we did not want to intrude).

I’ll never forget when we first met at our hotel the huge smile on her face and how she made it feel as if we had known her forever. You both took us in and showed us all the sights the entire week. You both are a prime example of how we should all show kindness to strangers. When the week was over we all felt like a part of your family. It was a trip that we will never forget.

I know you take comfort in the fact that she is wathing over you and your family and is in a much better place. However, she will be missed. 

May God bless you and your family. We will keep you all in our prayers.

John and Family,
I was so saddened to read of Ero’s passing. I always considered her a very dear friend and co-worker through our years together at DHS. I spent many good times at your home in Jonesboro enjoying Ero’s wonderful cooking and her warm hospitality, our trip to Walnut Ridge for Dukakis’ campaign train trip, her always sending home baklava for my young son and so much more. I know you will all miss her dearly.

Love to you all…

Dear John, & family,

I am so sorry to hear of Ero’s passing. God Bless all of you. I worked with Ero at Dept of Human Services, i also attended school many years with your daughter. John, My father in case you may have forgotten is Judge Roy “Red” Bearden.

You told me a story of picking up Al Gore at Jonesboro Air port, the car all of a sudden wouldn’t start. Ero had a dinner for us co all of co workers at your house one December and you really enjoyed telling that story.

I know you guys are really hurting, bless all of your hearts. I just know Ero has spoiled the grandkids over the years, she was so excited when she started having them come along in life. I was not even shocked to see in the paper where she parachuted from a plane, that was just like your Ero. She was such a strong fearless person, we always called her our fearless at the office. She would just laugh. The paper was right her heart strings was those grand babies, when the one baby got sick, Ero still worked with me ...she was so upset at work. I have missed seeing her all these years.  I know she is at peach with God.

We just lost my mother 8 months ago, Dec 26th and it has been so very hard. She had a heart attack.  I understand your loss to say the least.  God Bless you all, i am praying for you all.  Take Care, Donna Bearden, Jonesboro, AR

Dear Cathy and Brian,  I came to know your Dad over the last two years through my mother, Magda Degen, a resident of Spring Arbor.  He was such a kind and thoughtful man.  It was a pleasure to get to know him and to talk with him whenever I visited there.  I was so impressed by how sharp he was as well.  He always made a point of asking about my family - a true treasure.  I know that the ladies who play Bridge will truly miss him, as he was the \“coordinator\”, always making sure there was a four-some to play.  May you find peace and comfort in the days and weeks ahead.  Sincerely, Patti Degen-Lilley

I attended Cradock High School 1953-1957, where Mr. Rose served as a Guidance Counselor.  He was a fine man, an excellent teacher and showed his dedication to the students who came to him.  He had an open-door to many, and was always especially helpful to those who showed an interest in UVA.  My sympathy is extended to his family and friends.  His obituary in the will be posted on line at http://cradock.org/ in the In-Memoriam Section.

Colonel Robert Vernon Lee, Jr.


DIED: Thursday, Aug 11, 2011













Obituary

Obituary:  Colonel Robert Vernon Lee, Jr.
Died Aug. 11, 2011.
Robert Vernon Lee, Jr was born to General Robert Vernon Lee and Barbara Burgess Lee in Panama on July 5, 1925.  He was graduated from Ridgewood High School in 1943 where he was Valedictorian, Class President, Co-Captain of the football team and a nine-letter varsity athlete.  He was also the recipient of the prestigious Thayer Award for most outstanding citizen.  In 1943 he received a Congressional appointment to the United States Military Academy, from which he was graduated in 1946.
After basic artillery training, at the end of World War II, Colonel Lee served in occupied Germany.  After a three year tour, he was reassigned in 1950 to Ft. Bliss, Texas and then Ft. Sill, Oklahoma, where he served as an Instructor in Advanced Artillery Training.  In 1954, he was transferred to Korea where he served as a Battery Commander.  After one year, he was rotated to Okinawa where he was stationed for an additional year.  In 1956, Colonel Lee returned to the United States to teach mathematics to the cadets at West Point.  The tour lasted three years before he was transferred to the Command and General Staff School at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas.  In 1960, he was stationed in Tucson, AZ where he earned a Master of Science degree in Nuclear Engineering.  His thesis was published and celebrated internationally.  In 1962, Colonel Lee was sent to Washington, D.C. where he worked in Research & Development in the Pentagon.  His family returned to Germany in 1965 when Colonel Lee was named the Commanding Officer of the 2nd Howitzer Battalion of the 37th Artillery and post commander of the base in Bad Kissingen.  Two years later, he attended the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island where he was graduated with a degree in warfare in addition to a Master of Arts degree in International Relations.  In 1968, he volunteered for duty in Viet Nam where he served as Commanding Officer of the 108th Artillery Group in Dong Ha with additional command of Marine and Army detachments on the DMZ.  Colonel Lee was reassigned to the Pentagon, in 1969, where he was assigned to the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  In 1972, he was transferred to Izmir, Turkey where he served, for two years, as the head of Operations for NATO in the Middle East.  Finally, in 1974, he returned to Ft. Monroe where he served for two years as Chief of Staff of the Training and Doctrine Command.  In 1976, after a brilliant 30 year military career in which he was highly decorated for his wounds, his valor, and his outstanding attention to duty, he was retired from the Army.
Colonel Lee and his beloved wife of 65 years, Cynthia Warren, moved to Kingsmill on the James in Williamsburg, Virginia immediately following his active duty.  In 2004, after 29 years in Kingsmill, they moved to the Williamsburg Landing where they since have resided with many new and old friends.  Over the years, they have led tours abroad, travelled extensively with friends and visited their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren throughout the United States.
In retirement, Colonel Lee continued to share his leadership gifts with the Church and other organizations to which he was dedicated.  As a member of the Bruton Parish Church, in Williamsburg, he held, over the years, most of the positions available to lay members of the Church.  Serving the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia, he and Cynthia hosted and coordinated the annual Diocesan Council during a period of three decades.  Colonel Lee served as Deputy to the Convention of the National Episcopal Church for a period of over 22 years.  He also served as lay reader in the Church and was an active member of the Cursillo community.
Colonel Lee was also the first coordinator of the Michelob Open—a PGA tournament event held in Kingsmill.  For many years he volunteered in a leadership role and continued to volunteer when the LPGA event came to Kingsmill.
Colonel Lee was a member of the Crown Colony Men’s Club and President of the Williamsburg Landing Men’s Club.  He held many honors including membership in the Pi Mu Epislon honor society for mathematics.
In addition to his wife, Cynthia, Colonel Lee is survived by his sister, Mary Suiter, his daughter Susan Lee-Merrow and his son, the Rev. Dr. Robert V. Lee III.  Grandchildren include Justin Merrow, Victoria Sanford, Robert V. Lee IV, and Rebecca Lee.  Great grandchildren include MacKenzie and Parker Sanford.
Funeral is Monday, August 15, at Bruton Parish Episcopal Church.

Certain people are so generous of heart and so full of good spirit and kindness toward others that when they pass on, the abundant love they have shared with us still manages to sustain us and continues to bless us beyond measure.
Colonel Lee, in his gracious and enduring way, shared with us his passion for living and his devotion to God, family, friends, and country. He will always be to us the perfect example of a truly great man.
Our family will never forget Colonel Lee’s magnificent smile, his terrific sense of humor, that endearing glint in his eye, and his positive, fun-loving nature…memories we will hold in our hearts for the rest of time.
Our love goes out to Colonel Lee’s family at this most difficult time. We are missing him already. He will be with us always.

Dorothy Littlepage Allen




DIED: Monday, Jul 11, 2011













Obituary

Dorothy Littlepage Allen, 99, died peacefully in the late evening hours of July 11th with her loving daughter by her side. A native of nearby Norfolk, Dorothy was born February 3rd 1912 to Maude Emma and Lewis Littlepage. Dorothy was predeceased by her parents, her brother and his wife (Doctors Lewis and Eleanor Littlepage of Norfolk), and her husband of 57 years, Gibson Milton Allen. She is survived by their only child, Eleanor Littlepage Allen Knowles of Williamsburg, and her husband Bruce Hill Knowles. Dorothy is also survived by her two granddaughters: Jennifer Lynne Knowles Butler and her husband Dr. Jonathan Ty Butler of Nashville, Tennessee; and Allison Littlepage Knowles and her husband Dr. Nicolas Cristof Galoppo von Borries of Portland, Oregon. Her cousin, Rosellen Via of Williamsburg, survives her as well.
By all accounts, Dorothy was a remarkable woman. Those who knew her during her time in Williamsburg would readily recall Dorothy‘s high sense of style, her lavish parties, her fondness of gardening, the love of travel she shared with her husband, and her formidable skill at the bridge table! Less known perhaps is how wonderfully creative and artistic she was…traits she more fully expressed during the many years she lived in Scarsdale, New York. She was a dedicated member of the Scarsdale Women‘s Club and on their board for many years. Also, for some time she was the Director of the Scarsdale Community Fund. During those years in New York, Dorothy was well known for her blue ribbon abilities in flower arrangement and horticulture and certainly, the beauty of her extensive gardens surpassed even those pictured in the Wayside Garden catalogue!
Dorothy graduated from Maury High School with the distinction of being voted "Best Dressed" by her fellow students, a compliment that she maintained throughout her life. She first attended Hollins College and then transferred to the College of William & Mary from which she graduated in 1934 having majored in English and Math. She was active in a number of clubs and societies during her college years and was pleased to be a Kappa Alpha Theta.
After graduation, Dorothy taught school in Norfolk before her marriage and then again while her husband was fighting in the Pacific during WWII. Once Dorothy and Gibson married January 1st in 1938, they moved repeatedly as the demands of Turner Construction Company dictated. Eventually they settled in Scarsdale but chose to move to Williamsburg when Gibson retired from Turner in 1971.
Those familiar with Dorothy would remember her as a proud woman. She was certainly profoundly proud of her husband, her daughter, and her two beautiful granddaughters but she also took immense pride in her ancestral ties with a developing nation and Virginia in particular. She was a member of numerous genealogical societies which include: Colonial Dames of America in the Commonwealth of Virginia; Colonial Dames of the XVII Century; Daughters of American Colonists; Daughters of the American Revolution; Daughters of Colonial Wars; Daughters of Founders and Patriots; the Huguenot Society of Virginia; the National Huguenot Society; the Jamestowne Society, and the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
Despite her historic ties with Bruton Parish Church, where the tombstones of ancestors Rowland and Orlando Jones can be viewed by the altar, Dorothy and her husband chose to transfer their membership from Hitchcock Presbyterian Church in Scarsdale to the Williamsburg Presbyterian Church, which they did in 1972.
Arrangements are being made by Bucktrout of Williamsburg. There are no plans for services at this time. Rather, Dorothy will be interred beside her husband and her parents in Norfolk‘s Forest Lawn Cemetery during a private ceremony at a later date.
The family wishes to thank wholeheartedly the staff at Williamsburg Landing, especially those in the Woodhaven Special Care Unit. Their great love and attention towards Dorothy brought her a quality of comfort and care that is immeasurable and their love and concern for the family was, and remains, boundless.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: Hospice Support Care of Williamsburg (4445 Powhatan Parkway, Williamsburg, VA 23188), or a charity of one‘s choice.

Dear Eleanor

It was with much sadness that I heard about Dorothy’s passing. As her doctor for many years, I felt she was not only a patient of many years, but a dear friend. She was an angel on earth, and I feel fortunate to have had the priviledge of sharing a part of her life. Her class and sensitivity to others was always refreshing, and I always looked forward to her visits. She never complained about physical problems, always asking about how others were doing. My heart goes out to you, but I am sure she is in a much better place.

Sincerely,

John Hamrick, M.D.

Dearest Eleanor,
Your mother was a wonderful woman and I am lucky to have known her. She was always dressed to impress and had such a wonderful smile. I know that she is in a better place now, but that does not take away the sadness and loss that you and the family feel. She will be missed deeply by myself and all of the friends she left behind at Woodhaven.

I love you so much.

I am a neighbor of yours who read about the loss of your Father in the obituary today and I want to extend my deepest condolences, losing a loved one to death, especially a parent can sometimes make it difficult to endure, I would love to share a scripture to help you to cope found at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 which reads:“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies, and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our ttribulation, that we may be able to comfort those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselves are being comforted by God”. Your family will be in my prayers, my sincere condolences.

I worked with Frank for over 2 years and found we had a great relationship.  I found him to have a very good sense of humor and I will greatly miss him.

Dear George
On behalf of all your brother knights in the Fr. Rizer council, we offer up our prayers, rosaries, and indulgences for the repose of Bonnie-Lou’s soul and ask our Blessed Mother’s intersession that her Son bring comfort to you and your family during this time of sorrow.  Bonnie-Lou was such a wonderful supporter of the Knights of Columbus, a faithful attendee at council activities, and dedicated wife during your leadership as Grand Knight and District Warden.  She taught us all how to pray the rosary and the promises of our Lady of Fatima.  May our sweet Mother comfort you all now and at the hour of your deaths also.
Vivat Jesus
Bob Hinger and the Knights of Fr. Rizer Council
