LOBMAN Marcia Silverberg Lobman, 67, died From 1959 Yearbookon October 4, 2009 at her daughter's home in Anchorage, Alaska. A native of Wilmington, Delaware, Ms. Lobman moved to New Orleans to attend Newcomb College where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies. She later attended Tulane University earning a Masters in Early Childhood Education and thereafter devoted her career to serving young children with disabilities and their families. Ms. Lobman was a pioneer in the field of early intervention and worked diligently to build and improve the programs that serve individuals with disabilities. Upon graduating from Tulane, Ms. Lobman was employed by the University of New Orleans Parent Child Development Center where she worked on developing a parent and infant curriculum. Subsequently, she was employed by Louisiana State University's School of Allied Health for approximately twenty years. During that time, Ms. Lobman was responsible for the development and implementation of the Louisiana Curriculum for Infants with Handicaps, a project that created some of the first intervention services for infants and toddlers with disabilities in Louisiana. In addition, she was responsible for numerous successful federal and state grant applications that developed, expanded and improved intervention services for young children with disabilities in the state. She participated in the development of recommended best practices in the field of early intervention and consulted with programs around the state as they developed services for young children with disabilities. Ms. Lobman also authored or co-authored numerous journal articles and book chapters in early intervention. In addition to serving young children with disabilities and their families, Ms. Lobman helped to train hundreds of early childhood and special education professionals. She also taught in the Early Childhood Education program at Delgado Community College and was an Associate Professor at LSU Health Sciences Center School of Allied Health Professions teaching in the Master's of Health Sciences Program. Outside the classroom, Ms. Lobman personally mentored countless professionals in the field of early intervention. She was always eager to take another young professional under her wing and foster that individual's professional development. Professional growth and learning were very important to her and she believed in doing things well and striving for improvement. Ms. Lobman instilled these values in those she mentored and took great pleasure in watching those individuals succeed. Later in her career, Ms. Lobman shared her talents as a grant writer as the director of Grant Seekers Assistance at the Center for Nonprofit Resources and was a board member of Ya/Ya from 2006 to 2009. She also worked as a freelance consultant with a variety of community agencies to assist them in applying for funding from public and private entities and was an adjunct faculty member in UNO's College of Liberal Arts, Arts Administration Graduate Program.

She is survived by her longtime companion, John Cochran; her daughter Dorian L. Tuminello; her son in law Brian Tuminello; her grandson, Parker Tuminello; and her brother Robert Silverberg of Bethesda, Maryland.

From Bobby Silverberg 10/26/2009-
I am Marcia Silverberg Lobman's brother, PS duPont class of 1963.  I stumbled upon the reunion web site the other day and noted that it reported Marcia passed away.  Marcia died in Anchorage, Alaska on October 4th and a wonderful memorial service was held in New Orleans on October 14th.  I would very much like to hear from Marcia's high school friends to learn more about Marcia's high school years from the perspective of her friends, of which she had many.  Could you put the word out that I would welcome calls or e-mails from Marcia's friends by contacting me at the address/numbers below.
Thank you very much.

JOHN A. "JACK" TALLEY

 

Jack passed away February 26, 2009.

Death claimed Jack Talley, a well know figure in Delmarva harness racing circles during most of his life, at age 68[67]. Talley passed away after a lengthy convalescence in Salisbury, Maryland on Thursday.

Talley was a colorful, versatile, knowledgeable, vocal and opinionated person. He served as a race caller, owner, and trainer and for a time on the radio as a sports announcer. Talley usually made an immediate presence wherever he went.

Following a near fatal accident nearly 10 years ago when his truck-and-horse trailer was struck while driving near Middletown, Delaware, Talley was seriously injured and sustained a broken hip. Before a scheduled hip replacement operation, an infection of hip area resulted in disintegration of the necessary bone structure. For the rest of his life he was confined to a wheel chair.

Since his teens Talley has been a regular at racetracks in the East, first as a fan, then as a race caller and also as an owner-trainer. He seldom missed a race at Brandywine during the early 1960s. His friend and idol Hall of Fame racecaller Roy Shudt encouraged him to become a race caller and he quickly earned a reputation for excellence calling races at a number of tracks in North America. Among the tracks where Talley called races were Ocean Downs (aka Delmarva Downs), Harrington and Monticello raceways, Scarborough, Wheeling and Assiniboia Downs', in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada from the 1970s through the 1990s.

When not calling races, for a short time, Talley worked as sports broadcaster at radio station WNPV in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. He then began training a small stable of horses that he raced at smaller raceways in the North East. One of his horses, Zircon, won the Terminator Final at Monticello. Another of his favourites was the pacer Fays Valentine.

Surviving is his daughter Christine (Curtis Daniels), and grandchildren John, Jason, Jessica and Jennifer and a great grandson.

Funeral services are scheduled for Thursday, March 5 at Salisbury Baptist Temple, off route 50 at Hobbs Road across from the Shorebirds baseball stadium. A viewing is set for 6 p.m, and a service at 7 p.m.

Here was a tribute written about Jack: http://www.meharness.com/Scar/090311.htm

With sadness, we recently learned of the passing of Tommy Hynson --- http://miva.delawareonline.com/miva/cgi-bin/miva?obits.mv+70760

-#-#-#-#-#-

THOMAS E. HYNSON

Age 66, a lifelong resident of Wilmington, died on August 10, 2007, after a long illness.

Mr. Hynson was a 1959 graduate of P.S. duPont High School, a proud U.S. Army veteran, and retired from the DuPont Company's Edgemoor Plant.

He is survived by his friend and caregiver, Margaret Palmatary; his 2 daughters, Patricia Allegra and Michelle Jackson, and their husbands; his brother, William M. Hynson, Jr.; his niece, Lynn Loper, and her husband; his beloved 9 grandchildren, Tara, Rusty, Norman, Gregory, Christopher, Courtney, Brianna, Shane, and Santina; his great-granddaughter, Kimberly; his ex-wife and friend, Judith Hynson; and many friends who will feel his loss deeply. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Bonnie Jean; his grandson, William Ian; and his sister, Barbara Thompson.

A viewing will be held from 12:30-1:30 pm, Tuesday, August 14 at the MCCRERY MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME, 3924 Concord Pike, Talleyville (Route 202, south of Silverside Rd.), followed by the funeral service at 2 pm at Grace Episcopal Church, 4900 Concord Pike.

Death claims healer who made ER his life

Posted Friday, January 28, 2005 - 10:54 pm

By Ben Szobody
STAFF WRITER
The Greenville News
bszobody@greenvillenews.com

You knew it was real with Dr. Donald Gregg, because he didn't just grab headlines � though he was good at that � but he helped the kinds of people you will never hear about.

The man with a score of bread machines received South Carolina's highest civilian honor late last year.

He won a lifetime achievement award for his contributions to emergency medical services, yet he also was known for simply driving home ER patients who didn't have a ride.

His life could be read in plaques, or it could be read in changed people.

Gregg, 63, died at his home early Friday morning. He suffered from unusual esophageal cancer he had diagnosed himself, and he used that, too, to help patients in the nether reaches of the globe.

He leaves his father, C. Gordon Gregg, wife, Becky, of 40 years, three children, a goddaughter, a Brazilian daughter and many extended family members.

The emergency room doctor, mentor, alcohol counselor, "conscience" of the ER staff, Internet friend and breadman loved his job so much that he stitched and defibrillated and comforted until just before his own death.

This despite the wear chemotherapy and radiation had left on his own throat. To swallow a single bite was an adventure: food could lurch between his lungs or his stomach, thanks to scarring from his treatment.

Yet, as his health failed, he would volunteer to work extra hours to cover for colleagues. Dr. Marty Lutz, medical director of emergency services at GHS, recalls Gregg telling him he wanted to die in the ER, doing his favorite work.

Staff called him "ironman." He refused to split his shifts with other doctors, staying the full 12 hours and then some. In an ER world that attracts many in the profession because of the ability to serve a shift and then hibernate from the job's rigors, Gregg seemed to never cut himself off.

Several weeks ago, there was an accident at Gregg's home. As doctors and friends tell it, emergency responders immediately knew the address and responded en masse. Some say dozens of fire trucks and ambulances clogged the road.

The man who helped shape their emergency responder system had a personalized license plate that read "Code 36" � the designation for Greenville Memorial Hospital.

Channeling addiction "You can't replace a person like that," said Dr. Jeffrey Leshman, acknowledging his gross understatement. The president of Carolina Emergency Medicine, for which Gregg worked, Leshman was fresh off his own residency 20 years ago when he met the doctor who has dedicated himself to emergency room practice and become a father figure to so many in the field.

His recent struggle with a variety of cancer diagnosed only about 14,000 times a year in this country � 1 in 100 people � has been chronicled in The Greenville News and other media, as was the Order of the Palmetto he received from Gov. Mark Sanford last fall.

Sufferers like Warren Arseneaux relied on him for support and simple hope. Arseneaux was "devastated" when he was diagnosed with the same illness in 2003. He found his way to a Web chat room for people with the cancer, and he typed in his hometown and mentioned he was scared.

Within an hour Gregg had e-mailed him, and said, "Call me."

"The more I listened to him the more I realized this was beatable," Arseneaux said of the "little bitty" man who became a personal "giant." The help didn't end there.

Arseneaux said a relative is in Alcoholics Anonymous, where he found out that "everybody knows Don Gregg."

Nearly every day, an ER patient will ask if Dr. Gregg is in, and Leshman says he would always wonder how Gregg knew these people. The doctor didn't talk much about who he helped on the outside, Leshman recalls. Frequently it was through his efforts to help alcoholics, and he wasn't shy about why � he drank his way through much of two decades.

But Gregg turned his addictive personality toward his work and making bread, said his son, Dan Gregg. Dan and his brother are both pursuing medical degrees. Their father had been sober for the past two decades, and colleagues say he kept extra AA books in his office that he'd pass off to patients after a personal conversation.

When he wasn't finding the needy, he was carting in boxes of homemade bread for ER workers. Nursing specialty technician Beth Milbourne said, "Everybody would just attack the box."

Staying home He was also, for years, the face of a system he had invested his life in.

"He was not shy about enjoying the limelight � for the right reasons," Leshman said with a chuckle. He had friends in the media, and if a reporter called about the looming cold weather, for instance, and wanted to discuss the dangers of hypothermia, the recommendation was always the same:

"Why don't you call Don," Leshman would say. "He was good at it, and he loved it."

Gregg was born in Pennsylvania and grew up in Arden, Del. He spent six years in the Air Force, including a year in Vietnam, and added 15 more years in the reserves.

He's worked in GHS's ER since 1978, and once told the newspaper that one of his most memorable moments was reviving a 14-year-old boy from cardiac arrest. The boy later went into pre-med.

Mere weeks ago, Gregg was still at work, volunteering for extra shifts.

"I think most people would have taken their disability and gone to the beach," Lutz said. But "this was home."

Son Dan said he knew better than to try to stop his dad from doing one of his life's compulsions, despite a deteriorating condition.

"We all kind of knew once he had to stop working that would signify the end," he said.

'Blessed and grateful' On one of Gregg's last shifts, Milbourne said he would see a patient, then go the bathroom to throw up, over and over again. They thought his wish to die there might come true.

As his voice grew thin and the illness took its toll, Lutz said he wouldn't tolerate pity. He helped matters by being "matter-of-fact." And friends easily recite his trademark tagline: "Blessed and grateful."

"It was definitely a life lived for others," Milbourne said.

Dan has been in shock ever since reading various testimonials associated with his father's Palmetto award last year. There are reams of things he didn't know, and they're still rolling in.

In the Internet chat room where he conversed with cancer patients, for example, he posted a long and thoughtful piece about his excitement over a new adoptive grandson. Dan said it meant wonders.

On Friday morning, after a stream of memories and honors had been attributed to the deceased doctor, Leshman was asked what might still be unsaid about Gregg.

He sighed and said bluntly, "You've missed a lot."
