Andrea Lerner (Braver)

June 4th, 1955 - March 5th, 2015

Obituary

Andrea Braver, born June 4, 1955 in Houston, Texas, passed away Thursday, March 5, 2015. A warrior in a five-month fight with acute myeloid leukemia, she lived and loved fiercely. She is survived by her devoted soul mate and husband of 32 years, Lane, her three loving children, Aaron (29), Alex (28), and Zachary (25), her brother and his wife Nelson and Lisa Lerner, her aunt and uncle Joy and Harris Jacobs, and her sisters-in-law Elizabeth Morgan and Angela Braver. 

A 1977 graduate of Pitzer College and a human resources manager at Broadway department store before becoming a mom, Andrea was quick to say her greatest accomplishment was her three children. A proud stay-at-home mother, Andrea put her whole soul into helping her sons become the best, truest versions of themselves. She was a reliable and passionate presence on school and temple committees, drama clubs, and marching bands, all to ensure that her three boys thrived. Though she wished for more time to see her sons grow and mature, she knew that she had given them the tools to ensure they were, as she said, “fully cooked".

Andrea was a connector—the friendships she forged transcended time zones. Her friends in California would be quick to say that she was the glue that bonded them together for decades. Only 2 ½ years after she moved with her husband to Del Webb Sweetgrass in Richmond, she was a central figure in the community: she started a Havurah with Lane, founded the Drama Club, and was a regular sight on the pickleball courts. And for her extended family, Andrea was a beloved aunt, cousin, and friend—always the first to send a birthday card or make a phone call for any simcha.

Her family will celebrate and honor her Sunday, March 8, 2015 at 2:00 pm, at Emanu El Memorial Park, 8341 Bissonnet, Houston, 77074 with Rabbi Daniel Horwitz officiating.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to: MD Anderson Cancer Center, Leukemia Research, P.O. Box 4486, Houston, TX 77210. (www.mdanderson.org/gifts)

From Miriam Chaiken on October 19th, 2013
Kathy and I were friends in HS and became better friends when we both attended ASU. I will  never forget the two of us going through freshman orientation and running all over campus in blazing heat. Our last stop was to get our ID pictures taken, and I looked awful (sweaty & my hair stuck to my head), but Kathy & I laughed because she looked far worse as she'd had 4 wisdom teeth removed a few days before and her cheeks were swollen like a chipmunk. We remained friends through college, I went to many music events with her (she was a music major) including a memorable all-tuba concert that unfortunately caused me to erupt with laughter in mid-concert, much to her embarassment. We worked together in adjacent shops in Thomas Mall and I helped cover for her when she badly injured her hand in a coffee grinder. Kathy was always a source of fun, laughter, and a very creative and giving person. She will always be in my collection of happy memories.

From Linda Jacobson Segura on October 23rd, 2013
Janine and I first met in the bathroom smoking cigarettes our freshman year, we became fast friends, ditched classes together, ran away to California together, trips to the lake all the time and much more. She will forever be one of my biggest memories of the trouble and the fun I got in to during my high school years. We stayed in touch until 1988, she was a wonderful "aunt" to my daughters but we grew apart as my children got older and as a military family we moved overseas. The last oppotunity that I saw Janine was a few minutes at our 30th reunion, we laughed, discussed old times and made promises to keep in touch but day to day life kicked in and somehow we lost touch again until her brother called me on a December day right before Christmas to let me know she had passed. I miss the great times we had and so many times I hear a Carpenters or 3 dog night song or even American Pie, smell the orange blossoms or have a deja vu type incident and a smile comes across my face and I like to believe it is Janine saying Linda, Linda...remember when? 
 
I miss you my friend and I believe that some day we will be in my Gremlin in the sky singing "Bye Bye Miss American Pie"

Obituary

Mercedes Laing
1956 - 2008
 
As one of the youngest board members of the Chicago Community Trust, Mercedes Laing led efforts to ensure the group supported racially and ethnically diverse programs.
 
As a result, the country's second oldest community foundation created initiatives targeting the African-American and Hispanic communities. It also developed a policy that guaranteed diversity among grant recipients, board members and staff.
"Because of Merci's leadership, we viewed then that we had to lead by example in the area of diversity," said Terry Mazany, president and chief executive officer of the Chicago Community Trust. "She sparked the interest of our entire board to take seriously the leadership role that the board should play in Chicago as a very diverse community."
 
Ms. Laing, 52, died of cancer Tuesday, June 17, in Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
 
Ms. Laing was a member of the trust's board from 1996 to 2006. She also put in stints as the board's vice chairwoman and headed the education committee and the management and compensation committee.
 
Ms. Laing took special pride in the creation of the trust's African-American Legacy Initiative, which supported emerging organizations in the black community, said her sister, Mavis.
 
One of those groups was Kids off the Block, started three years ago by an Englewood woman who opened up her living room to young people to keep them off the streets. The trust gave the organization its first grant. "She felt that there was a lot of potential to get African-Americans more engaged in significant philanthropic efforts," her sister said. "Chicago was a really good place to launch a fund like that. You do have a lot of black professionals here and the people who had the means to make substantial gestures."
 
In 2006, she became director of external affairs for Chicago Public Schools. She took the job just a couple of months before her cancer diagnosis but continued to participate in conference calls and strategy meetings for CPS until recently, said Arne Duncan, the district's chief executive officer. "When we talked it was always when she came back," Duncan said. "She fought this thing. ... It's a tragic loss. I think she would have made our system much better. Our children didn't get the benefit of Mercedes Laing. I think she would have made a remarkable impact on the school system."
 
Ms. Laing came to CPS from the law firm of Holland & Knight in Chicago, where she was a partner. She joined the firm after working as urban issues director for the late U.S. Sen. Paul Simon, where she was responsible primarily for monitoring urban education and school reform and identifying ways the federal government can help local schools.
 
Ms. Laing also formerly headed the African Trade Institute and worked on several Democratic political campaigns as a fundraiser and community organizer, her sister saidMs Laing was born in Cleveland and grew up in Phoenix. After graduating from Harvard-Radcliffe College in 1977, she took a job with Procter & Gamble. During training in Chicago, she fell in love with the city and eventually made it her home
 
Ms Laing got her law degree from Yale, where she was an editor of the Yale Law Journal. She worked as a clerk for Judge Amalya Kearse on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
 
Her Lincoln Park home was filled with artwork, especially African-American folk art. She was an avid collector, who championed her favorite artists, including Mr. Imagination, Elizabeth Catlett, Romare Bearden, Kerry James Marshall and Kara Walker, her sister said.
 
Ms. Laing's sister is her only immediate survivor. Visitation is set for 4 to 7 p.m. Friday in Unity Funeral Parlor, 4114 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago. There will also be a visitation at 11 a.m. Saturday at Church of St. Edmund, King and Martyr, 6105 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago, prior to a noon service.

From Miriam Chaiken on October 19th, 2013
Merci and I became friends before HS when my parents took us to the Laing home to help clean up and support them when racist vandals terrorized Dr. Laing and trashed their home off Lafayette. It was an early lesson on the challenges they faced being the only African-Americans in a wealthy white neighborhood, but the Laings didn't live in the shadows because of this harassment. Merci was part of an extraordinary family, her father a doctor, her mother a nurse, her older sister Mavis a world class track star and scholar -- so Merci set her sites high -- as I recall she wanted to be "the first Black woman Chief Justice of the Supreme Court". While that post may have eluded her, she went on to have an accomplished career and was a brilliant woman, lawyer, and humanitarian. I treasure memories of my friendship with Merci all through HS and most of college, and I am proud to have had her in my circle of close friends.

I knew Todd in grade school as well as high school and he would drive me nuts one minute and make me laugh the next.  He does have a Facebook page which has some great photos of his life and it is clear he was loved very much and he loved very much.

Obituary

John F. Troutman, "Johnny Tee," of Anthem passed away September 29, 2015 at 9:44pm. He passed at his home with family present. John was born April 12, 1955 in Indiana. The son of John and Elizabeth Troutman, he was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, Patrick Troutman. He is survived by his loving wife, Kathy (Marlow) Troutman; a son, John Steven; a daughter, Kelly Loubet (P.J.); another daughter, Elizabeth Troutman (Cody); two granddaughters, Rachel and Allison Loubet; a brother, Jim (Pat) Panagos; and a brother, Dick (Carol) Panagos. 
John was such an outstanding human being. He was loved by all who knew him. You know that he loved sports morning, noon, and night. While he was sick, the television was left on a sports station so that when he woke up that's what he would see. He coached girls' softball for many years. So many children will miss his presence. He was a handsome, good-hearted, and giving man. His main goal in life was to love his wife, children, and grandchildren. He wanted life to be especially wonderful for them. He loved his extended family from his wife's side and considered them to be his family. 
A special thank you goes out to Sage Hospice for the exceptional care that they offered to John and his family during this difficult time, as well as a special thank you to Bayada Health Services for their special care. 
A celebration of life will be held at Heritage Funeral Chapel, 6830 W. Thunderbird Rd., Peoria, on Saturday, October 3 at 10:00am. Mickey Marlow will be officiating the service. Any donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the funeral home in Kathy's name for funeral costs or to the American Cancer Society.

From Robert Trapani on October 5th, 2013
Beth was a good friend and classmate both at Kachina and Arcadia.  I will never forget her wonderful performance and how she covered for me when I forgot my lines in the Kachina Elementary production of "The Wonderful Tang" in which she played by wife and me, the Emperor Tso-so.  I have fond memories of her; she was a wonderful lady and I will miss her.  Robert Trapani
 
From Miriam Chaiken on October 14th, 2013
Beth and I remained friends for all the years after we first met in 6th grade. I stood by her side at her wedding, and we stood together through many chapters in our lives, including the last chapter in her life cut short by cancer. Through her battle she remained strong and philosophical, sustained by her friends, family, and faith. She is survived by her husband John (Bayfield, Colorado) and children Jake, Walker, and Shannon, and daughters-in-law Lezlee and Kristin. She was a true friend, a generous spirit, and I miss her very much.
 
From Linda Segura on October 23rd, 2013

Beth Elyse White died of breast cancer on Feb. 25, 2011. She was 55. Beth was born on Nov. 18, 1955, in Phoenix and was raised by her mother and stepfather, Betty and Robert "Jay" Johnson. She attended Arcadia High School in Phoenix and California Lutheran College, graduating in 1977. She married John Patrick White on Jan. 29, 1977 in Phoenix. They lived in Las Vegas, Nev. from 1977 to 2000, when they moved to Bayfield. She worked in various sales and management positions at JC Penney in Las Vegas and Durango for 33 years. She organized several events at the store in Durango benefiting the American Cancer Society and was the captain of the store's team for Relay for Life. Beth was proud of her Swedish and Hungarian ancestry. She liked eating meatballs, paprika, and shopping at IKEA. She made beautiful baskets filled with cookies for her friends at Christmas, and she loved to bake and garden. Even when the bugs or the goats damaged her crops, she was still proud of her tomatoes. She liked watching movies with her family and reading books. She was an active member of the Lutheran church in Las Vegas and Christ the King Lutheran Church in Durango, where she was the founder and director of the church's puppet ministry. She also started the church's liturgical dance group, which her family called the Leapin' Lutherans. Beth was a loving wife and mother. She and her husband attended all of their children's school activities, including BHS football games, track meets and cheerleading events. She also had a sense of humor. She once told a friend, "If you hear a kid crying, but the sound is coming toward you, you know he's not dead." Beth was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago, had radiation, and seemed to have beaten it, but it came back in 2010. She enjoyed a cruise to Alaska and a trip to Disneyworld with her family as she was fighting cancer. She reminded all of her female co-workers and friends to get their annual mammograms. She is survived by her husband of 33 years; two sons and their wives, Andrew and Lezlie White of Pagosa Springs and Walker "Mickey" and Kristin White of Thornton; and her daughter, Shannon, who is attending the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. She also is survived by her brother, Dan, of Phoenix, and a niece and nephew. Cremation has occurred. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 12, 2011, at Christ the King Lutheran Church. Donations in her memory can be made to Christ the King Lutheran Church, 495 Florida Road, Durango, CO 81301, or Susan G. Komen for the Cure, PO Box 650309, Dallas, TX 75265-0309.

 
From Arthur Moorhead on November 1st, 2013
I had a mad crush on Beth in 2nd grade at Kachina.  My mom suggested I take flowers to her, which I presented to her in front of the class.  I have never been so embarrassed in my life.  But Beth was touched; she had a beautiful smile, and I could tell from her expression she was saying to me, "don't worry what the others think -- I am happy you brought me flowers."  What a wonderful person Beth was, and I will never forget that second grade crush - my first. R.I.P, Beth.
