    We are so completely heartbroken, and still can’t believe you are gone but know you will never be forgotten. I will cherish all our memories from the past 20 years sharing life with you. You will forever be in our beautiful children’s hearts and we will keep your legacy alive. The boys and I will never stop loving you and lifting you up…Until we meet again <3

  2. Bonnie McGhee on

    Wow! Resting in peace and without pain. An angel for sure. I will think of you often and will enjoy the memories of our conversations. Butterflies and Pennies. Love and Prayers to all who will miss her.

  3. Dolores Downing on

    I am saddened to hear of Ted and Pat both passing away. They were great neighbors to my parents, Peck and Marcie Graves and my son Robert Newton. They were hard working people who loved having a beautifully manicured yard and amazing flowers. Our condolences to the families of Pat and Ted and their friends.

  4. Betty Chidester on

    When we were house hunting in Virginia Beach, Yoko and John graciously housed my family in their Sea Breeze home. Little did I know that we would become neighbors several years later. Yoko would always greet us from the bottom of the driveway when we were out on our walk. Gracious and always perfect in her appearance every time we would meet! My family has very fond memories of Yoko and John. The Chidesters

    Mom – I miss you so much but I am glad that you have journeyed home to Heaven. Through the tears, my heart smiles because I know that you are happy, reunited with dad, and watching down from the Heavens as my Guardian Angel. I am heartbroken – there is no denying that … but I will be OK. You taught me to be strong, and I will give my best to follow in your footsteps. I miss you, mom and I will hold you in my heart every day until we meet again. Love love love you!

  6. Ralph and Regina Thomann on

    Our love and sympathy to Kit’s family. We worshipped together with her and your Dad, shared dinners and wonderful memories. Kit’s gift of floral design was truly a gift which she shared generously at St Nicholas and later at Westminster. We last saw her at a fundraiser at WC a year ago this pat Christmas. She made a unique arrangement…in a gown! I was blessed to work with Dick on the columbarium committee. Gentle, loving caring people they both were. We will hold them in our heart and memory.

  7. Barbara Howe on

    Mom: Thank you for being the best mom and friend anyone could have. You were honestly the strongest yet kindest person I’ve ever known. I have many wonderful memories, cards, and photos that bring me peace and joy. I’ll cherish them always until we meet again. I know you are at peace with Dad and enjoying your time together. While I miss you terribly I celebrate your reunion. I miss and love you both so much. Thank you for always being there for us.

  8. Liz Heischober on

    Leslie, I was so sorry to read of your mom’s passing. I remember how close you were to her. Losing one’s parents is a difficult experience to cope with even though we know that they will not be with us forever. Hold fast to all of your memories. Thinking of you and your family.

  27. Georgia Scott on

    To the family,
    I was so sorry to hear about your loss? I pray that Jehovah will give you the strength you need at this difficult time in your lives. She was always ready to answer my many questions, and was a very good friend to me. I will also miss her, but I know all the wonderful memories I have will help to ease the pain of losing my friend. I look forward to seeing her in the paradise that is coming to the earth.

  28. Vivian Daughtry on

    Sincere sympathy to the family on your great loss. Throw your burden on Jehovah, and he will sustain you (Psalm 55:22). Please know that Joyce is in Jehovah’s memory, and He has not forgotten all the wonderful things she did.

  29. Janice Hill on

    Please know that your family is in my prayers. Joyce was a zealous servant of Jehovah and He will not forget her works. Jehovah is looking forward to the day that He will call and Joyce will answer. Never forget the love Jehovah has for Joyce as we look forward to the day that she will once again be serving Him in the paradise here on earth.

  30. Mary Surgeoner on

    Getting to know Faye was a high point. A funny, loving woman. Enjoyed working with Faye and also being a friend after she retired. Jim was dedicated to Faye and always by her side. Rest In Peace Faye, you deserve it.

  31. Edward Pahl on

    My deepest condolences to the family. I worked with him in the school system for many years, and remember fishing with him. What a great guy! Ed Pahl, Norfolk VA

  32. Tillie Creasy Howard on

    My sincere condolences to the Haughton Family. This pain of heart Jehovah will end soon, but will soften each day during your grieving process. I will never forget my visits to my grandmother Florence Creasy and my Aunt Eva Smith in Bremo Bluff,VA. The highlight of the week was field service with Joyce and the other pioneers on Tuesday and then the midweek book study. I was only 12/13 years old but from Joyce I learned the pioneer spirit. Her faithfulness will be rewarded.

  33. E.B. Moore, Jr. on

    It saddens me to hear about the passing of Joyce. I’ve known her since 1964 when her Mother invited my Mom to the Kingdom Hall. We were neighbors for years. Don’t dwell on her passing but celebrate the life she lived well. Revelations 21:4 says “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning not outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” We look forward to seeing her again!

  34. Woody Gregory on

    Lee as my friend and Brother. I learned a lot from this rusty old salt. Sweet man and a loyal friend. Lay down your tools, your journey is complete. WELL DONE!

  35. Terry Morris on

    I remember the times Joyce and I worked in the door to door ministry together. She was very calm and mild tempered with her presentations and responses at the doors.
    I learned a lot from the field service tips she gave me to better my skills in the ministry.
    Jehovah yearns to wake up those sleeping in his memory. I also cannot wait to see her again … when all things will be new. (Revelations 21:5)

  36. Vera Jones on

    My sincerest condolences to the Haughton and Shepard families. Because of the Shepard family, my family learned the truth and for that we are forever grateful.
    In our later years, Joyce and I shared our love of gardening and our many memories of raising our kids. Joyce will truly be missed. But for now her race is complete and we look forward to seeing the fulfillment of Jehovah’s many promises…when we can welcome Joyce back to a paradise right here on earth.

  37. Carolyn nye on

    My thoughts and prayers for all of the family, I know that she will be greatly missed but she will always be in your heart

  38. David Connors on

    While we started out with me as her supervisor, she became a beloved friend and confidante. Wry, sarcastic and funny as hell, you sure knew where you stood with Faye. I wasn’t certain until one morning when she gave me a kiss. To Angie and Jim; my deepest condolences, and I will miss my friend.

  39. J. Parker on

    My dear brother please accept my condolences to you and your family. I won’t be able to send you the customary chicken and rolls but you are in my thoughts and prayers. When Tamika told me about your wife I was saddened. I know how much you love her and what agreat loss this is for you. Still being at her ressurection is now the focus we must all have. Thank you for the love that you showed for my girls. Stay strong. Numbers 6:24-26. Isa. 30:15.

  45. Michael Thomas on

    What a sweet, godly woman Mrs. Perez was. She treated me, as a young college student, like part of her family, making me always feel at home. Praying the presence and peace of God will flood the hearts and minds of the family and friends she leaves behind.

  46. Mackenzie Sheffield on

    You will be missed dearly Mrs. Baird. All of your students and former students love you so much and miss you. Thank you for all the laughs and the good times and the memories made in orchestra class. ?

  49. Myra Jennings on

    I’m so very sorry to hear of Jim’s passing. We taught science across the hall from each other, and had wonderful times together at Princess Anne. Often, before school, Jim, Mrs. Agami, and I would be laughing so much at his comments – our days couldn’t have started any better. I appreciated the produce he thoughtfully brought in from his amazing gardens, especially since I could seem to grow anything. Jim was always the one with the answers, and always willing to share materials and ideas. I hope memories of him are of some comfort to Maddie and his family during these difficult days.


    Praying for peace to all who love Jim and long to see him again. He touched so many lives, including mine, and will always live through our hearts. We love and miss you Kansas City Jim.

  51. Yvonne Bryant on

    To Brother Haughton and sons: Please accept my deepest sympathy! I draw comfort in knowing her condition is temporary! I have nothing but the best memories of Sis. Haughton. I appreciated the opportunities to get to know her as a person and she proved to be one of the most humble, dignified, reverent and serious-minded persons that impacted my life personally in ways that only Jehovah knows. I plan to continue my conversations with her in the Paradise. May you too draw comfort from that!—Isaiah 26:19.

  52. Cheryl "Parker" Campbell on

    So sorry for your loss. I remember Vernon very well. He and his wife Norma were very good friends to my Mom and Dad. My memories of Vernon are fond ones as he always had an engaging smile and was super nice to everyone. Prayers of comfort for all the kids and grands! You were lucky to have him. I’m know he will be missed. ?❤️

  62. Holly & Steve Wetzel on

    Jerry brightened all days. His smile, humor, laughter, and pure joy of life was contagious. He was a genuine friend and the most honest person I think I’ve ever met.

    His love for God was evident, his love for Wilma immense, his love for his family was unconditional, and his love for friends was apparent.

    Steve and I will always love this man, and cherish the memories made with Jerry – forever.

    Love to all that knew this wonderful man. I know you need comfort, as we were all blessed to have had the pleasure of knowing him. Our hearts go out to Wilma, their children, and grandchildren. May you find comfort and peace throughout the days to come.

    Holly & Steve Wetzel

  68. Kathy Cooke on


    I have known Adam through his cousin, April, since our high school days, and I was so sorry to hear of his passing. My heart goes out to all of his family, especially to Aunt Debby, Aunt Kathy, April, and Adam’s daughter. Adam was friendly, fun to be around, and had a gentle charm that always appealed to me. I saw him off and on throughout the years in April’s company, and he was always good for a chat, always took an interest in how I was doing, and he even lent me a favorite book of poetry once. I have included a picture of us in 2003 at a hotel down by the beach, which I’ll remember him by. Adam was unforgettable, and he will be missed. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  69. Valerie Wilder on

We knew each other well. I’m going to miss you my sister. Rest in Heaven until we meet again. Your sister in Christ and friend.

  70. Jessica Puhek on

    Lori was an instant friend to everyone she come into contact with. She had the biggest heart and cared deeply for her family and friends. I only had the pleasure of being her friend for a few short years but she has left a permanent imprint on my heart. Rest in Peace Friend.

  72. Pamela Simmons on

    Jimmy was a friend of mine in college. It was many years ago and my memory has faded, but whenever I picture him, we’re laughing together. Rest easy Jimmy. ♥️

  73. Paul Wegweiser on

    I lost one of my absolute giants this month.
    James was a natural and gifted teacher for 4 decades – the type you read about in magazines, or hear about on those old Sunday Morning Charles Kuralt shows. He knew how to light the spark in the brains of kids – in Science and Math, and the absolute wonders of the world and Astronomy. It was his passion – and one he championed among those he taught.
    When I was 14, he was the one that took me on fishing trips to get me out of the house, while my mom was going through the brutalities of Chemo – traveling a dead end street lined with 4 or 5 different simultaneous cancers. He sat me down in 1984 and said: “You know she doesn’t have much longer before the end comes.” Words I needed to hear out loud, as a jerk adolescent.
    In 1979 or so, he was a Geology student of my fathers. He soon became one of my parents’ closest friends, and a true uncle figure for me – but also far MORE than an uncle. Never one to shy away from the truth, he taught me many good – and sometimes difficult lessons. He was a born scientist, and he always strove for truth in all things.
    I owe a great deal of who I am as a man, to the teachings of James Steven Loeffler. My desire to learn… my sense of humor…humility…even elements of my laugh. He cooked. He gardened. He made people laugh nervously, even when they knew the jokes were a little too dirty for polite company.
    He was (as my mother so aptly put it) “…beautiful until he opened his mouth to speak.”
    I know you had your battles James, and you didn’t win every one. But I am honored to have shared some very special time on this planet with you. God Speed. I hope you and Kim (and my parents; Art and Helen,) are whooping it up and telling good stories long into the never-ending night. You were loved my friend.

  74. Betsy Rogers Kozinn on

    Sending sincere condolences to Jim’s entire family . I met Jim in my freshman year of college at Edinboro State College ( now Edinboro University) We met when I joined The Ski Patrol at Mount Pleasant. We became best friends very quickly and were inseparable during my four years at Edinboro. We shared so many good times and happy memories on our skis, bikes and with our friends. Jim helped, supported and” tutored” me in science and typed all of my papers for me( long before PC’s and laptops). Jim was an incredible and gifted teacher and was loved by his fellow teachers and students. He was a thoughtful, loyal and amazing friend and a kind and gentle soul. May his memory be a blessing.

  75. Belfor Property Restoration on

  79. Lauren Fancher on

    Thinking of all of the Dibbles and Finchers and of Marcel, who was beautiful inside and out, with a gift for laughter, adventure, family, and friends, as well as being an artist and art educator who touched so many lives. I was lucky to be a part of it over the many years, always full of laughter, starting in the early 1980’s in Athens through our last conversation two months ago, She will always be in my heart.
    With love and remembrance,
    Lauren Fancher

    My father, Larry Rosenthal, was Pete’s cousin. My Dad passed on 3/4/21 also at 82 years old. My father would tell me stories about how he and Pete moved from Galena and rented an apartment in Park Ridge, IL. Dad had so many fond memories of him and Pete living in the suburbs of Chicago. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Dawn, I have just learned of your loss. I am so very sorry as I remember David as a kind, humorous and dependable person. While I have not seen you in some time, it seems like yesterday that you came to work with HLCRE and were such a joy to see each day at our front desk. That, or course, led to your meeting David and the rest is history. The two of you had so many wonderful years together and I am very happy for that. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Bob

  90. Bill Ward on

    My dear friend of 45 years I will miss you. All the great times we had together I will always cherish those memories from swimming at big orange country to skiing out west and everything in between there are so so many. I’ll never forget you. See you on the other side

  91. Ed and Judy Odom on

    We are very saddened by the great loss of the Dibble family; our hearts are broken. Marcel was a giver to all and didn’t expect anything in return. A look back at her life demonstrates her dedication to others, from teaching children her entire adult life to raising two of the most beautiful human beings I know, is proof of what a loving gift to life Marcel was. Time heals and memories fade but what you leave behind forever contributes to the positive legacy of life. Marcel’s left a great legacy through the children she taught, the people she touched and her own wonderful family. Peace and love to them all…

  92. Kevin Heitzhaus on

    My condolences to Steve’s family and friends. I am a golf buddy of Steve’s and always appreciated his approach to life and golf. He is missed.

    As a co-worker and friend of 29 years, Mike has left his footprints in my life. I will never forget all his kindnesses, wisdom and, of course, the laughs we shared over the years. He was a special person and words cannot describe how sorry I am at his loss. It is with deep sympathy that I offer my sincere condolences to you and your family.

  96. Mike(sub2) Jennette on

    Alice, Nick and family I am so very sorry for your loss. I worked with Mike Olenik for about 20 years. Mike was always full of fun, curiosity, creativity and compassion. As contractors, we visited many places and met many different people. Mike was first to reach out and embrace new folks and ideas. Together, he and Alice raised a beautiful family and were usually the center of the joyous and frenetic activities in their neighborhood. There seemed to be so much happening that it was almost scary, but they were there and in control. How incredible is that? But, best of all, Mike was a good and just man. I know I am not alone in saying that He will be missed. We need men and families like this in our lives. Thanks, Mike and Alice, for sharing.

  97. Kirk Sutton on

    I was a good friend of Steve’s for many years. We worked along side each other, played golf together, and we talked outside of that about the Lord. Steve was a wonderful man, always had a smile on his face and could make any person laugh he was around. He is definitely missed for sure.

    Life is only too short if you haven’t lived every day you were given. Michael Olenik was a giant among humans. He lived every single day to the fullest. This man loved his family, friends, community and mankind. Michael was always there with confidence. He sought to give assistance. People turned to him for guidance. He found the love of his life, Alice, and lived life loving her and their children and grandchildren. He lived with honor, respect for all, generosity and care for other people. He will be missed by so many. Rest in piece my friend.

  108. Diana Wooden on

    My thoughts and prayers are with the Dibble and Fincher families during this difficult time. I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of Marcel. She was such a special person to so many! From the first time I met her in Germany, until the last time I saw her in Virginia, she always brightened my day and filled the room with sunshine and laughter! She was such a talented educator and artist, but best of all she knew how to be a good friend. One of my fondest memories of Marcel is when we took a little trip from Germany to London, England to meet up with our men, whom were there on a cross country! Riding in the back of a British black cab on the wrong side of the road was a hilarious adventure with Marcel, Lisa Olsen, and me! I have never laughed so hard! Then of course, we girls wanted to tour art museums, while the boys wanted to go to the war museum! We shared so many laughs that weekend. Marcel and I were both expecting our first child on that trip as well! She loved her family and friends!

    Marcel has left warm memories, and a beautiful legacy to all that her life touched. Her spirit will live on in our hearts.

    Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to the broken hearted.

    With deepest sympathy as you remember Marcel,

    Diana Wooden

    You gave me the most wonderful life I could ever imagine and it will be forever changed without you. Your love and memories will carry me until we are together again. You are with our son Chris and I know y’all are looking over us. I promise you I’ll be ok. It may take me awhile but I’ll get there. Love you forever.

  113. Debbie Ashby Sholar on

    Dear Alice,
    I am so saddened to hear of Mike’s passing. I have such fond memories of our adventures together. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  114. Junelizabeth Paine on

    Noreen is a cherished and loving gift to all of us, especially her family. I will not say “was”, as her spirit lives on in all of those whose lives she touched. In life, she was a powerful, humble, generous and loving woman, and so very gentle. I admired her tenacity and loved our friendship. Always smiling and not just with her lips but with that twinkle in her eyes.

    Her presence will be especially and sorely missed by you, her dear family, and I shall also,

    In God’s loving arms, she will hear: “Well done my child”…

  115. Karen Francis aka "fifi" on

    To my Friend Kurzee and her Family,
    Words are not coming when I think of “Pops”, but there are many wonderful “Green Beans” memories of him and his humor! He was, indeed, one of the best “girls” when we would go out! He had the humor (and occasionally even agreed) when we “man bashed” and vented in general. The party started when he arrived! He was a lovely, gentle man. We will miss him but know that he is in a much better place. Love you, xoxo, fifi

  116. junelizabeth on

    Even to this day, I smile at one of our adventures.
    I heard about an Augustus Saint Gauden’s Sculpture exhibit about two hours from Portsmouth. At this time, Noreen had a bit of a problem walking on uneven surfaces. Most all of the sculptures were spread out on grassy knolls to be observed. She politely and generously told me to go on ahead and she would simply sit in the shade.

    You have got to be kidding, no way was I going to do that. We did not come all this way for her to sit and not see these magnificent pieces of art, which she enjoyed. I asked her to get back in the car and without permission from the museum, drove her around on the lawns and grassy knolls, with her laughing all the way. Yes, we were stopped at one point, but after a courteous explanation, we were allowed to continue driving on the lawn.. We even stopped every so often and she was able to walk up closely to see the magnificent pieces on display. It was a fun day!.

  117. Debbie Apperson on

    It was a pleasure to get to know Mike. His commitment to doing good was one thing I admired most about him. Having him on my plunge team was an honor. I always knew that with the Alice and Mike team, I didn’t need to worry, all was under control. My heart aches for you.

    May God grant you always…
    a sunbeam to warm you,
    a moonbeam to charm you,
    a sheltering Angel
    so nothing can harm you.
    Laughter to cheer you,
    faithful friends near you,
    and whenever you pray,
    Heaven to hear you.

  118. Mr & Mrs Shane Boda & family on

    Our sincere condolences to the family. John was a great friend and cousin. He will greatly missed.

  119. Spike Mertes on

    Condolences & prayers to Justin, Katlyn, the grandkids & the Crowder family. I met Steve working for Shopsmith and developed a grand friendship thru our employment sharing ups and downs on the golf courses, Thanksgiving events, sales and beyond. A great friend over the years, sharing those times teasing each other about our prowess on a golf course or sales, Steve being the “better” in sales. Face time during his last days were memorable. I can still hear his laugh and his drawl as I put down these words. I am happy that he is no longer suffering, but I will miss his jovial conversations. Loved the guy for his truthfulness and being a true friend over the years. May he Rest In Peace, now and forever. Hit ‘em long and putt straight, Steve on whatever cloud you’re playing. You’re flying now.

    I am so sorry for the Shumaker’s loss.your wife and mom was definitely a strong willed woman, she spoke her mind for sure. She loved her boys, nothing could come between her and her sons.

I really feel sad for her husband, they were so different in personality but loved each other dearly. Love you all, Lisa Ricketts

    Lois was as sweet and caring as she was strong. She was such a joy to work with and have as a friend. I could always talk with her about work and my personal life. She was always encouraging and made you feel like you had a strong supporter. Her strength over the last several years has been inspiring. When we would talk on the phone, she was always cheerful despite the struggles. I will cherish her friendship.

    My prayers go out to the family for the loss of an awesome mother and grandmother. You probably already know this, but she was well loved.

    Judy was such an energetic, caring presence at Star of the Sea school when Jim and her children attended the school. I remember working with her when I taught Patricia and Lisa.

A woman of deep faith, she guided her children by her unassuming yet constant following of the Lord.

    I am so glad that I had the privilege to work with Dr. Dunford in the Minor Care at Sentara Bayside and Princess Anne. I learned a lot from him and enjoyed all the great stories he used to tell us about his past as a Doctor. He always treated his Patients with kindness and especially the Children making sure they had a sticker before they left the ER. To the Family I am deeply sorry for your loss and God Bless all of you. Dr. D may you Rest In Peace.

    I had the honor of serving under then Commander Bob Byng in Attack Squadron 34, stationed at Naval Air Station, Oceana Virginia. I was a squadron pilot and enjoyed the quiet yet firm leadership he exhibited. He had a way of extracting the best performance from his aircrews and squadron personnel without being harsh or demanding. His leadership set an example for me as I progressed in my career. Captain Byng will be missed.

    I will miss Flo so much. She had a great listening ear. We shared our family joys and sorrows through the years. She loved her family dearly and talked about them often. She also loved her students and was the one who could calm any of them who needed some understanding. She was an extremely hard worker who never complained about any task set before her. She was great at her job and it was an honor to work with her. She enjoyed singing and had a beautiful voice. She always greeted everyone with a smile whether they deserved it or not. I will always remember her and our friendship. Her loss has left a hole in my heart.

May God bless his family, friends, and loved ones and provide comfort to them in these difficult days.

    Hi folks – Although I suspected Marcia didn’t have much time left, I never expected her demise would have happened so soon. My husband also suffered from lymphoma and died within a few months of diagnosis just last year.

    Marcia was a treasured volunteer at Seconds Unlimited for years. Up until my retirement in 2019, she continued to work to the best of her ability.

    Cancer is a bitch!

    I’ll always miss Noreen. We had been friends since early 70’s. Hiking, walking, visits and phone calls. She was ALWAYS easy to be with. We had many laughs, teas and remembrances. She’d simply drop by and make herself comfortable. Food and beds made no difference to her, it was the company she would seek. And, Thanks to John, we got to see each other one last time here in MA. at the Concord Inn. YOUR presence will be MISSED, my dear Noreen. Love you forever and ever, Nora

  152. Chrissy Love on

    I’m so sorry to hear of Dr. D’s passing. I always enjoyed working with him. I always loved arriving at work to see that he and I would be teaming up to run the minor care section.

May you soon find comfort in the good memories. ❤️

    Noreen O’ Leahy

    I will always will remember Aunt Noreen. She was a free spirit in her time, always loving and caring to everyone. My fondest memory is visiting her and cousins Don, John and Kathleen when we were young adults. She opened her house to me and my wife and showed us a wonderful time during our visit with her.

    During her visits it’s my Mom she always asked about the people in our lives and how they were doing; always expressing love and concern to everyone. She will be deeply missed.

    God’s Blessing,

    The first time I met Charlie was at Jack and Regina’s house in Virginia Beach. Sometime during the gathering Charlie and I found ourselves on the front porch smoking a cigar and drinking whiskey. We had an immediate connection and we stayed on the porch and laughed and shared stories for most of the evening. He was very much like me in that we don’t share our feelings or appreciation of other people very well, but I could tell he loved his family and friends very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with Charlie and his whole family. Rest In Peace my friend.

    Noreen and I met as neighbors in the late 60’s. She was a kind, intelligent, free spirited longtime friend. She introduced me to hosteling on a trip to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket in the 80’s. It was a wonderful experience and a lot of fun. She will always be remembered.

    To Tanna’s dear ones,
    Condolences from all of us at The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey. We were terribly saddened to hear of Tanna’s passing. Those of us who were here when Tanna was a member of our team remember her with fondness. She has left the world too soon and we send our deepest sympathy.

    Nancy and I were classmates at NCHS. I remember her being very popular in school. After many years, we reconnected planning high school reunions and Red Hat Society chapter, which Nancy loved so much. She is admired for her bravery and determination during her adult life with a dreaded disability. Always smiling and upbeat, she will be remembered for her sunny disposition. May she rest in peace.

  196. Tuukka on


    I will break the ice ……. thank you for the companionship, early morning talks and treats, belly rubs, and getting me hooked on tuna. My life hit the jackpot when you finally let me in the door and laid down ground rules (a story many have heard, no doubt). Miss ya bud

  197. Chris and Colanne Schwemlein on

    It is a truly sad moment for all of us in the Felten/Felton clans at the loss of Donnie. It had been so long since we last saw each other, but we will remember his brashness and bravado when we cousins were much younger, and his affable style and laughter too. If Covid had not canceled our planned Felten/Felton reunion last year, who knows, we might have had the opportunity to see each other again. Another reason not to take for granted each day or opportunity that comes our way.
    Thank you too, Donnie, for your time in service to our nation. We are grateful. God Bless you, until we meet again.
    Chris and Colanne Schwemlein

  198. Robin Alexander on

    I just found out about Richard’s passing and am so sorry for your loss. I waited on the retirees group at Golden Corral for years and always looked forward to seeing everyone each month, especially Richard, Connie and Mom. They kindly invited me to their picnics and made me feel at home, even letting me win at bingo. You will be missed – my thoughts and prayers to your loved ones.

  199. Mark Copeland on

    I knew Donnie somewhat distantly at first through my acquaintance with his mother Audrey and his sister Irene. Since he moved in with Irene back in October, I’ve gotten to know him better.

    Donnie has always impressed me as very knowledgeable in many areas. Whether the subject matter was auto repair, computer issues, medical concerns, or other subjects we have discussed, he impressed me as a treasure chest of knowledge on par with! But for all the mental acumen, he was very personable and caring. He was generous with sincere compliments and was always approachable. He loved to affirm other people who were in need of encouragement and quick to see their worth. He was very patient with people who had personal struggles.

    Being a person of faith, the thing that most impressed me was Donnie’s transparent and sincere faith in God and the renewal of his early Christian faith. Some of his Facebook posts reveal the passion he had for social justice—a subject prominent in Scripture. I remember the Saturday morning when he sat down with me at Irene’s house and had an open, honest, probing, and sincere discussion of Scripture. More than once, when I was dealing with potentially stressful situations, I learned through Irene that he was praying for me.

    Speaking of prayer, when Irene went upstairs to check on Donnie and found he had left this world, he was in a perfect kneeling posture. As I do not see how anyone would fall into a perfect kneeling position, I can’t help but believe that he left this world in prayer.

    I would like to have gotten to know Donnie better. I’ve learned a lot about him that I did not know just by reading posts to this forum. But, we will meet again. And, to snatch a phrase from the apostle Paul, then “We will know [each other] even as we are known.” I look forward to seeing him again in heaven.

    Warmest thoughts and prayers to the family. I was looking forward to meeting you, Irene.. he spoke so highly of you. I am heartbroken.. I was seeing Don and we shared something very special.

You touched my life and showed me how love really feels. I love you and I’ll miss you dearly.

  215. Bud Gabel on

    My deepest sympathies go out to Kim and family. Ronnie was very special to me. We worked together for over 40 years and played a lot of golf and softball games. Ronnie was a very impressive athlete excelling in basketball, golf and baseball and had one of the best throwing arms I’ve ever seen. We had lots of plans to play golf on our retirement and every time I play Ronnie will be in my heart.

  216. Loretta Dion on

    My memories start the first time I met him in El Paso. He was an imp who thought it was funny to remove the screws from his playpen causing it to collapse. Next time was in Marlboro. The imp rose again when he climbed out of his crib and went to our neighbor Terry’s house. She called and asked if we knew where Donnie was to which my sister answered in his crib and she said no he’s not he is here. Next time my sister was folding clothes and taking them to the appropriate bedrooms.. She got suspicious of Donnie because she thought she was folding the same clothes she already folded so she asked me to watch him. Sure enough he was following her and taking the clothes out of the room and putting them back in the basket. He was a tease. He also liked me to take his picture with my polaroid camera so I would take his picture in his crib with him standing in his crib to get him to take a nap. Then there is that great picture of him standing on the couch in his pajamas with his arms stretched out with that beautiful impish smile. We took that picture because he was sad that he couldn’t go with his parents and Irene to Joseph’s cub scout event. Then there was the loving caring Donnie who took my son Christopher under his wings because Joseph,my son, told him he was worried about Christopher. He got Christopher interested in working out. He was always precious to me. I loved the fact that he knew there would always be a present for him at his mothers at Christmas. SO that was my Donnie. I thought I was going to see him this coming Christmas but his daddy wanted him to come home and be with his mother and I couldn’t be happier for him. This the loving,caring,impish,teasing Donnie who I knew and loved.

  217. Sabrina tucker on

    I haven’t had the opportunity to meet Ronald, but from what Abby has told me, he sounded like an amazing and caring father. My thoughts go out to the family.

  218. Terrie Crabtree on

    Courtney, Cameron and family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a srong woman and a very loving and caring mom and grandmother. She was so proud of all of you. I wish she had let us know she was not doing well but I also understand it. She will be missed by us all. My prayers are with all of you. Cherish your memories.

    My sincere condolences and prayers to everyone for our families loss. Jimmy may you Rest In Peace with our lord & savior. Amen??????

  220. Billie Carter Wyatt on

    Dear Dave, Dan, Ted and family; I was so very sorry to read in the paper about your mom. I remember as children playing at each others homes. All of you coming over to my house to play basketball. Then, years later your mom registered me for the Professional Class at The Memorial Hospital School of Nursing. I had already worked many years as an LPN and I think she was very proud that I was getting my RN. I loved both your mom and dad. You know all of us from Coates Elementary School that grew up together and our parents became friends as much as we were friends, it’s not difficult to love each others parents. They almost become second parents to each of us.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you go through these next sad weeks and months ahead. I pray The Lord will surround you all with His loving arms during this time.
    Thinking of you all.
    Much love.
    Billie Carter Wyatt

  225. Sherry Dion-Wright on

    Donnie……I mean, ahem…… Don! Boy am I going to miss our long talks. I’m going to miss your advice! I’m going to miss your encouragement! You were an awesome cousin, and we were definitely related, somethings only funny to us, and probably would have had us admitted into the psych ward if folks heard that humor!

    I’m going to miss you, and I look forward to seeing you again! It’s not goodbye, it’s see ya later, gator! You we’re definitely one of a kind!

    My thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and other side of the family that I have never met! We all must carry on and tease each other as Donnie teased us!

  226. Debra Bumgardner on

    I’m so very sorry for your loss and another loss in our family. Though it doesn’t replace the physical presence of his love at least he’s with our Lord and other family members and will now be at rest.

    My family had the pleasure of knowing Buster for years starting when he worked at Patriot Chev in Williamsburg as a bodyman with Eddie English; they also had a shop together, he said Buster taught him everything he new and that he was the best in Williamsburg. We have a lot of good memories (including him washing and shinning up whatever car he had at the time). So very sorry for your loss

  243. Nancy Ivey on

    My deepest sympathies to Kim and family during this difficult time. I have known Ron for many years as a coworker at NNS of both mine and my husband’s, Max Baer. They also played softball and golfed together and Ron was there for Max during his last days. Whether it was at work or play, Ron always had a strong determination to succeed and the preservance to make it happen. I’m sure that served him well in this last and toughest battle. I will always remember him fondly for his help in taking Max to his chemo treatments and the unwavering friendship and support he gave him during those tough times. 

  244. Teresa Hemley on

    Hugs and prayers for Marsha and family Mr Buster was such a sweet man It was a.honor to know him he was very special to me and my family We loved him and he will be missed We will cherish the memories we had with him. Rest in.peace Mr Buster we love you

  245. Deborah Jenkins on

    I can’t tell you how much Uncle Buster meant to me. We shared a very special bond together. He has been in my life since the day that I was born. Now he’s gone but I know where to find him he is in my heart. Buffy I can’t begin to understand how you are handling this. I wish I could reach out and give you a hug but don’t ever forget how much he loved you and the same as me look to your heart.

  246. Donna Hoberg on

    We were neighbors on West Kingston Lane 40 years ago. Auntie and Uncle Ben watched our two older children Jeff and Jenny when I worked evenings at Norfolk General. My husband Ray was usually away with the Navy. Jeff remembers the butterscotch candies Ben always had and Jen remembers going to the hairdresser with Auntie and Becky’s wedding. Both agreed she was the very best cook. Ben and Thelma were the best caring for the kids with love and kindness.

  247. Nancy Blankenship Jones on

    Fred was the chaplain on the USS SIMON LAKE when I joined the crew in 1986. As we changed homeports to Holy Loch, Scotland, he quickly became one of my favorite shipmates, and I believe that sentiment was shared by everyone. Fred’s faith, sense of humor and ability to connect with those in need of spiritual guidance, or just a good friend, made him such a special person. He left Nancy and his children behind for that tour, and he missed them so much. He loved to tell us about his family, his face would light up with every story he told. Fred and I kept in touch sporadically over the last 35 years, and it was such fun to reminisce about old times. I find myself doing that now, and I can’t help but smile and be grateful for the privilege of having known him as I remember what a character he was. Blessings to the Archer family during this difficult time. May your sweet memories of Fred give you peace. ♥️

  248. Jerry and Laura on

    Her Journey is now of a new form of peace. She will remain in your heart always. Our. Condolences.. Love Jerry and Laura.

    My deepest sympathies to Bryan, Sharyn and all of Flo’s family. Flo was a friend, neighbor and (for a while) roommate to me. Though we had not been close for many years, she walked with me through some tough times. Today, I remember her fondly and with deep gratitude for her friendship. Bless you all.

  250. Robin E. Wooddell on

    I was sorry to hear of Fred’s death. As an Interim Pastor for the presbytery, I was active in the biblical storytellers group with Fred as the convener.. I enjoyed “telling” with Fred & others at churches & nursing facilities. I was also the Interim at Coleman Place after Fred retired. Fred was a friend & I will always remember him with fondness. May God uphold you & the rest of the family in your time of remembrance & grief. Christ’s love & comfort be with you. Robin Wooddell

  251. Tracy Radosevic on

    The news of Fred’s passing saddens me deeply. I knew him through his long relationship with the Network of Biblical Storytellers. Fred’s greeting and bear hug were always eagerly anticipated. His smile could light up a room and his laugh could lift the lowest of spirits. He was a great storyteller — of many genres! — and I appreciate his willingness to help me out in my freelance storytelling career by securing gigs for me at his church as well as for a larger Presbyterian audience at Bonclarken Conference Center. The world is a little less bright now with his absence. RIP, Fred, and thanks for the stories, the laughs, and the support.

  252. Maria Hunger on

    Pat, I will miss your words of welcome at the club and the good times we shared at the special corner of the bar. You always encouraged me to do my best as an Auxiliary member, and I appreciate that. Keith will never forget the ranting you and Bob Frietag did every time he came to the Eagles club – you made him laugh always! One last Cheers to you, Pat!

    William, my deepest sympathy to you and your family for your loss. What a wonderful tribute; I feel I got to know Julie, at least a little, through your words.

  259. Pat Walsh on

    I was very sorry to read of Fred’s passing. I only knew him briefly, through the time that my late husband Neil and I attended the support group meetings for IPF. He was always so friendly and encouraging. I hope that he did not suffer much with his disease at the end of his long and well-lived life. May God hold each of his family members gently and may you each find peace in your faith and joy in your memories of Fred. With sincere condolences and prayers for your comfort.

  261. Miranda on

    June’s favorite poem by Mother Teresa –

    People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
    Forgive them anyway.

    If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
    Be kind anyway.

    If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
    Succeed anyway.

    If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
    Be honest and frank anyway.

    What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
    Build anyway.

    If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
    Be happy anyway.

    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
    Do good anyway.

    Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;

    Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

    You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;

    It was never between you and them anyway.

  262. Donna, KeShara, Erika & The Metropolitan Family on

    We can’t believe Julie is no longer with us. She has helped us in so many ways here at Metropolitan Funeral Service as our HR Consultant. But she also felt like a friend. She was so funny and kept it real. Our only regret is that we didn’t get to go out on the boat with her for a ride like we planned. Her husband, mother, daughter and the rest of the family are all in our prayers. We will miss her so much.

  263. Sarah Thompson on

    Tommy, Becky, Timmy, And family, so many fond memories of growing up in the Thompson clan and Aunt Thelma and Uncle Ben were a wonderful and important part of the family. We still miss Uncle Ben and now Aunt Thelma has gone to be with him and their savior, Jesus christ. We hope to see them all in heaven and have a Thompson family reunion with Jesus! It will be rowdy of course and I don’t think Jesus Will mind. Sending you hugs and love and praying for your comfort in this time. Love you all, Sarah Ellon

    David was a wonderful friend during my teenage years in the Oaklette neighborhood along Indian River Road in Chesapeake, VA during the mid 1950’s through the 1960’s. He had a very talented mind and like all of our close friends, a never ending interest in technology. I knew his family and cherish our memories in High School at Great Bridge. May the Grace of God be with him, his wife Jackie, his children and grandchildren and his siblings. David, you shall remain in my heart and mind for the rest of my life.

  270. Karyn Chaudoin on

    Thank you Memaw for the honor of being part of yours and Popus’ life. You accepted me into the family as your own. I will always treasure the memories of Thanksgiving when you made me that awesome lemon cake. Not only was the whole family usually there but also every person you knew and a few adopted strays that wandered in. You loved everyone with open arms and we loved you right back. I will miss you from this earth but looking forward to our celebration in eternity with the Lord. I know Popus is glad you are home with him.

    Uncle Tommy, Aunt Becky and Timmy – my heart breaks for you. It’s a hard time in life when you lose a parent no matter what your age. Trust in the Lord at this time and know that he will carry you through. I’m here for all of you and love you very much. See you in January.

  271. Sherby Wilks on

    William, what a beautiful tribute to Julie. That’s the Julie I got to know when she started at WHRO in October 2017. We worked side by side and our office were next to each other. She was a great HR professional, we shared a lot, and I learned a lot working with her. She talked about her family who she loved so dearly. Not only was she a former co-worker but she was also a friend. My heart goes out to her family. May God tenderly comfort you and give the family strength to endure.

  272. Rebecca Kleinhample on

    Julie supported our Museum Human Resource needs with a smile and earnest professionalism. She created a wonderful team building afternoon, her leadership was joyful, patient and generous. Julie is dearly missed. Our deepest sympathy to your family.

    We are so sorry for the family’s loss, yet thankful that Nicole is once again whole and free from the pain of her disease. Nicole took care of my children when they were small. As my wife Debie often notes in her anecdotes, I was “at sea” when she needed help. Luckily Nicole was there to lend a hand. We are so lucky to have known such a beautiful person.

  274. Shelley B Gnade on

    Like many others, I knew Fred through the Network of Biblical Storytellers. He was always such a positive, loving presence and I looked forward to greeting him every year. Fred took on the task of orienting new attendees to the annual Festival Gathering and he was perfectly suited for it. His personality was as friendly, accepting and welcoming as a Labrador puppy–truly so happy to greet everyone and play his part to help them feel a part of the larger group. (Knowing how much Fred loved his own dog, I’m hoping he would feel honored by the puppy reference.) The world is a less colorful place without you, Fred. I will miss you and extend heartfelt sympathy to Nancy and his family.

  275. Anita Bethea on

    Ron was a presence that will be greatly missed. May God grant the family peace and consolation during this time of loss.

  277. Cullen Harrell on

    This morning I lost my great grandmother, my Meemaw. I spent most weekends of my youth over at her and Pawpaw’s house. When I was in the Navy and stationed on the USS Bainbridge, she let me live in a room upstairs when not at sea or on duty. Our special time together was going to the Lynnhaven Fish House, now closed, and ordering our favorite seafood. The fried seafood platter is what she enjoyed most. Meemaw always supported me and was proud of the things in life I pursued or accomplished. Meemaw was like a second mom to me and I will always miss her.

    I love you Meemaw!!

    Prayers of comfort to the family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sherice was a great mentor and friend when we worked together. She always had kind words of encouragement and a beautiful smile. When I was interim Manager, she would come to my office every morning to make sure I was prepared for the day. She even brought coffee. I will always remember her kind spirit and thoughtfulness. God bless you all during your time of bereavement.

  284. Melissa (Johnson) Zacharias on

    Growing up across the street from you, I always thought of you as “MY babysitter,” as if there may be other people who might care for me in my parents’ absence, but you held a place of honor because you were “MY babysitter.” Thanks for the happy memories, Nicole. And thanks for taking care of me. We will remember you with love.

  291. The Camp Family on

    Brenda was such a wonderful person and so special to our family. She treated us like her family and took such good care of us. She was always thoughtful about the kids and what they were doing and seemed as proud as we were! Every Christmas she brought us some homemade goody. Chip always says her Pimento Cheese was the best he ever had. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  296. Roberta Faulk on

    Deepest sympathy to the family and friends. I met Brenda when we worked at Avon Fashions. I will never forget the day that she received the phone call that they had a baby for her, I took that call and I was really excited for her. The last time I saw Brenda after many, many years was at the Farm Fresh in Smithfield she hadn’t changed a bit, she was just as nice as she was when I worked with her. She will be missed!

  297. Anne-Lise Gere, SPHR on


    We exchanged a few FB messages recently after Julie went into ICU.

    I prayed fervently for her recovery. I lost a son to cancer in December and know all too well the experience of being in the hospital with a loved one and being there when they take their last breath.

    Know that I will continue to pray for Julie and the rest of her soul. I will pray for you and your family. Prayers received have helped me tremendously so I know how important it is as we learn to live with a hole in our hearts.

    Many have shared memories of Julie with you. Mine are few but precious. As a fellow HR consultant, we met a couple of times to share experiences and talk HR stuff. We wanted to run a series of workshops together but the pandemic stopped those breakfasts and plans.

    Julie had a keen sense of observation and a quick wit. She made a very apt comment last April when a slew of new HR laws came “Has anyone else felt like they took a Law degree in 2 weeks?” I used that image a few times with others as it was a very good description of what had happened to Hr professionals.

    Finally, do you have plans for a memorial? I would like to attend.

    As we now walk together on the path of grieving for loved ones lost too soon, I want to assure you of my sympathies.

    Anne-Lise Gere

  314. Wendy Giordano on

    The Williams family always made me feel welcomed and treated me like a daughter. There are so many fun memories like when he would pick us up from a concert and take us to Shoney’s to eat soup and salad. Irwin’s pharmacy where he would sit at the soda bar and talk and everyone knew who was. He was friends with everyone. Johnny really did teach us to enjoy the little things in life. Praying for peace and comfort for all of his family and friends.

  315. Frances Hill on

    Bill was just one of a kind! Bill would be the only older sibling who would talk to us seriously about anything, then laugh and carry on with us! What a joy to run into him at VT and catch up on all the happenings in the family and his new educational adventures! The last time we saw him was at Rick’s retirement ceremony and he, like us scooted away before the fanfare-crowds weren’t usually our thing. He was such a brilliant man, funny, and always knew something to say(brilliantly witty!). Whoever wrote this obituary hit the nail on the head, beautifully written-he will be so missed! Love and hugs to all the family, God be will you!??❤️❤️

  316. Brandi LeFebvre on

    Mr. Johnny is the dad of my life long best friend and I will always remember him as a great father. He was very thoughtful and was always so nice to me. He will be sorely missed by his entire family. My prayers are with you all.

    Mr. Williams was a great storyteller. I always enjoyed chatting with him. I was fortunate to be able to join Todd and his Dad for breakfast a few times. Always entertaining and it was plain to see how much of a bond they shared. Mr. Williams will be missed by all who had the privilege to know him.

  324. Karen Delp on

    Kajs, My deepest sympathy to you on Jim’s passing. I had only just heard of the debilitating disease he had. What a light he was in the lives of everyone who knew him. It may be years since we’ve shared space, but I’ve always had warm thoughts whenever I’ve thought of both of you. I particularly recall his beer, his smile — and seeing your speed walking over the roads. God bless. Karen

  362. Luci (Tedesco) Watson on

    Uncle John, the night before you passed I had a list of things I wanted to thank you for, so I guess here is as good as any – as I thought I’d have more time to share with you..
    1.) Thank you for putting up the railing for my dad on the stairwell, when he first came home from the hospital as he was trying to move about the house…
    2.) Thank you for visiting after Evelynn was born and helping me get Home Depot to take back the refrigerator we bought that really was too big and didn’t fit in our kitchen, you knew how to speak to the manager, it was so helpful, and I felt like I had a strong team member 🙂
    3.) Thanks for the pasta lunch back in the city of Rome years ago, even IF you were hastily moving through the amazing Sistine Chapel and had the museum security on edge, we called them ‘professional shushers’ they kept shushing you to be more quiet. Hahah, it was one of my most memorable moments in Rome. It always makes me laugh.
    4.) Thank you for the memorable times on your sail boat, there was always something to do, and I’ll never forget getting sea sick after going crabbing.
    5.) Thanks for being there and always making the trip to Pittsburgh, these many times over the years. It was a joy to be able to come down to Virginia Beach in my summers as a pre-teen to teenager and hang out eating ice cream and watching gulf with you on the couch 🙂

    Your strong presence will be missed, Love your niece Luci

  363. Rich Brodmann on

    My deepest condolences to Charlie, Wilma, Leon & Family. I’ll always remember Marvin especially from back when I’d see him at the Little Creek Amphib Base Gym with his Dad (Charlie). About 1 year ago he installed a new HVAC system in my partner Ken’s home. Rest in Peace Marvin…❤

    Bill was a seriously good dude, he knew when to press stop and when to press go, all without making a huge fuss.

    Gonna miss you ol’ feller. We had some crazy times at work. Terrible paving jobs that made us laugh, throw up our hands, and wish we were drinking cold ones. You were like a big brother.

    Please accept my sincere condolences on Nancy’s passing. She was a little spitfire and would always be ready with a story when Lisa and I would show up for lawn services. I enjoyed her stories about her time in the army. She was a trailblazer for all women in the military. She will be missed.
