BUREAU -- Gertrude Lillian Goodale Bureau (Trudie) passed away on Sunday, January 25, 2009 at the age of 97. She was born in Whitetail, Montana to Arthur Goodale and Christina Morvik on September 1, 1911. She was raised with her siblings on a cattle ranch near Whitetail and attended a one-room country school. She married Arthur Lyal Bureau, from her hometown, in 1935, and began her career as a Navy wife. Trudie dedicated her life to her family and community, wherever they were stationed. While living in Coronado, CA. she was active in her daughters' school activities and served as a Brownie and Girl Scout Leader. She was also a volunteer for the annual Coronado Wildflower Show, often going into the San Diego mountains to pick wildflowers by special permit. During WWII, she was the head of the household while her husband served in the Pacific on various aircraft carriers. Trudie was also a USO volunteer during this time. While stationed in Albuquerque with NASWF during the 1 950s, Trudie was active in the Officers Wives Club at Sandia Base. She was a founder of the Base Thrift Shop, where she often volunteered. She and her husband, Jake, started an outreach program from the Navy at Sandia to the Navajos at Canoncito when they became interested in the Navajo culture. While stationed at Moffat Field in Sunnyvale, CA, she and her husband became active in Republican politics. When Trudie registered more voters than anyone else in the state, she was told by Republican Women's Club members that she was instrumental in getting Ronald Reagan elected Governor of CA. Her efforts gained her an appointment to the Santa Clara County Grand Jury, a duty she thoroughly enjoyed. During the Bureau's "Twilight Tour" in England, Trudie discovered her love of travel. It was there she became knowledgeable about antiques and collectibles. Some of her attributes were her creative talents including sewing, embroidery, crocheting, knitting and woodcarving. After the Bureaus retired to Albuquerque in 1969, Trudie became a volunteer at the All Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. She often entered her baked goods at the New Mexico State Fair and won many ribbons. For many summers, she drove to Whitetail to visit family and friends. Trudie gave support to that tiny community by donating small gifts for the Bingo games at the Community Center. Before dementia robbed her of her memory and skills, Trudie was an interesting and interested lady with a boundless curiosity about the world around her. She was widowed in 1976. Trudie was preceded in death by her parents, an infant son, Armand Bureau (Timmy) and grandsons, John Bureau Keleher and Thomas Bureau McDonald; brothers, Wilbur and Arthur Lewis Goodale and sister, Clara Marriage. She is survived by her daughters, Eileen McDonald and husband Clyde of Albuquerque; Linda Keleher and husband John of Aspen, CO and Barbara Bureau of Albuquerque, who was her mother's wonderful and constant caregiver; sisters, Harriet Stockwell of El Cajon, CA; Gladys Fay Burwell (Dolly) and husband William of Montrose, CO and brother James Goodale of Great Falls, MT and loved nieces and nephews. Also surviving are grandsons, Clyde (Tuffy) McDonald, and wife Darcy of Fullerton, CA, Michael and James McDonald of Albuquerque, Christopher Keleher of Aspen, CO., Brian Keleher and wife Alicia of Carbondale, CO. Trudie is also survived by six great-grandchildren, Alexander, Grace and Claire McDonald of Fullerton CA and Patrick, Finn and Kate Anne Keleher of Carbondale, CO. Trudie will be missed for her gentleness, kindness and sense of humor. Cremation has taken place. A private service will be held for the family at a later date in Montana. The family wishes to thank the caregivers at The Woodmark, Odyssey Hospice and Rose Martin for their loving care. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to Muscular Dystrophy Association of America or your favorite charity. Arrangements by Direct Funeral Services, 2919 4th St. NW. ABQ. 505-343-8008

COIN -- C. Gene Coin, M.D. On January 1, 2009 Dr. Carl Gene Coin died peacefully after an extended illness near Scottsdale, Arizona with wife, Elizabeth, and daughter, Teresa nearby. Dr. Coin was born in Ardmore, Oklahoma on November 16, 1925 the second of the two children of J. Walter and Grace Allen Coin. He was pre-deceased by his parents, brother James Walter Jr. and nephew, Eric Walter Coin. He is survived by: his wife of 63 years, Elizabeth Anne Wilson Coin of the home; son, J. Thaddeus Coin PhD, MD, daughter-in-law Eleanor Barker-Coin and grandson, Allen Taylor Coin of Wilmington, NC; daughter, Teresa Elizabeth Coin, JD, LL M, grandson, Wilson Wright Lee and granddaughter, Raney Elizabeth Lee of Scottsdale; son, Patrick Gene Coin, PhD, daughter-in-law, Margaret Coin and granddaughter, Emily Grace Coin of Durham, NC; and daughter, Wendy Kathryn Coin, MD and partner, Vickie Sneed of Asheville, NC; and nieces, Cynthia Coin Boyd of Edmond OK and Nancy Coin Arroyo, JD of Stuttgart, Germany, and many great-nieces and nephews. Gene Coin's development was markedly influenced by his father's work ethic, which kept his fruit distributorship solvent during the Great Depression and a devoted mother who often took her boys fishing when their father had to work. No doubt the untimely death of their mother when Gene was 14 left its mark on the Coin brothers. World War II saw Gene enlisting in the U.S. Navy's V-12 officer's training program at age 17. At the close of the War he served as Ensign on the destroyer escort, the USS Thomas. After the war he returned home to Ardmore briefly where he married his high school sweetheart Elizabeth ("Lib"), who remained at his side for life. Gene stayed in the Navy for a time to assist in the mothballing of Navy ships in St. Augustine Florida. He and Lib then returned to Oklahoma where they both finished their Bachelor's degrees at OU. Gene then entered Medical School at OU followed by Internship in Sacramento Ca. Dr. Coin then returned to Oklahoma City to complete Radiology Residency at OU. There he started his family and quickly became Chief of Radiology at St Anthony Hospital. Dr. Coin remained at St. Anthony until 1969 when he chose to enhance his professional skills and became a Fellow in Neuroradiology at UCLA. He continued on the faculty at UCLA for another year before accepting the Chairmanship of Radiology at Lovelace Clinic in Albuquerque, NM. The advent of CT scanners in the mid 70's changed his professional career forever. He directed installation of New Mexico's first CT Scanner. In the next decade he directed similar CT Scanner installations in Palm Desert, CA, Fayetteville and Pinehurst NC. Dr. Coin authored and co-authored many scientific papers, textbook chapters and presentations mostly involving innovative uses of CT and MRI scanners. From 1984 until 2005 Dr. Coin practiced in both private and academic (U. of Miami) settings in South Florida. He only fully retired at age 79. Gene was a lifelong fisherman and outdoorsman. He pursued fishing and other outdoor activities intensely when he could get away from work. He particularly enjoyed and became quite skilled at salt-water fly fishing. While in South Florida he spent many hours either alone, with Lib, friends and family fishing the flats surrounding Craig Key. On retirement Gene and Elizabeth moved to Durham, NC and more recently Scottsdale, AZ during which time his health gradually declined. Gene did not desire to have a formal burial. Rather he wished his ashes to be spread about the beloved waters at Craig Key, Fl. A private ceremony is being planned. The family suggests that if a remembrance is desired, a donation to the Coastal Conservation Association, the National Audubon Society or other wildlife preservation organization would honor his memory best.

DIEBOLD -- Elizabeth Strong Diebold, 94, of Ottumwa, Iowa died suddenly Tuesday, January 14, 2009 at The Haven (Sylvan Woods) where she resided. She was born to Edgar and Emma Gilbert Strong on March 17, 1914 near Durham, New York on a cold and snowy day. Betty graduated from Greenville High School near Durham, New York in 1931 and from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York in 1935 with a BA in Zoology. She married Dr. Charles Harbou Diebold on December 21, 1935 at their college pastors home in Ithaca, New York. Charlie died January 4, 2003 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. They were married for 68 years. She is survived by three sons, Robert (Bobbie) Diebold of Front Royal, Virginia, James (Caren) Diebold of Lakewood, Colorado and David (Becky) Diebold of Ottumwa, Iowa. Also surviving are ten grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren scattered across the country. Betty, who grew up in an era when few women had a college degree or career, was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother as well as an intelligent and supportive wife to her husband in all his activities. She lived with her husband in a number of states early in their marriage including New York, Wisconsin, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Washington, DC, and finally moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1944. During this time, her husband worked for the Forest Service and later for the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) as a soil scientist. An early believer in the civil rights movement, Betty was active in the Albuquerque Chapter of the NAACP, serving several terms as Secretary in the 1950's. She and her husband were active members of the First Methodist Church and later the First Presbyterian Church in Albuquerque. She served several times as a Deacon in the Presbyterian Church calling on shut-ins and doing other congregational caring duties. In 1954, they bought a small farm east of Peralta, New Mexico (20 miles south of Albuquerque) where they raised native grass seed, flower seed, wheat and alfalfa. After her husband retired from the Soil Conservation Service in 1966, they continued to farm there until the late 1990s. They lived in their adobe farmhouse until 2003 when Charlie died. Starting in 1967, Betty accompanied her husband on most of his early mission work-trips to Pakistan, Thailand, Philippines, Mexico, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic where they lived and worked in some very remote and under-developed areas. They usually donated two or three winter months of their time to the Presbyterian Church with him serving as a consulting agronomist looking for ways to grow more or better crops to improve the diets of small farmers and their livestock in the third-world. In later years, they spent winters helping several rural communities in the mountains of Mexico to develop crop improvements, potable water delivery systems, and other community improvements thru A.R.T.A. (Appropriate Rural Technology Association), as well as C.H. Diebold Missions helping to sustain several rural Presbyterian Churches in this same area. She moved to Ottumwa, Iowa in 2003 to be close to her son, David and his family. She joined the First Presbyterian Church in Ottumwa shortly after moving there. She lived for about five and half years at Sylvan Woods and The Haven in Ottumwa. She enjoyed living there and being close to family. Her family is very appreciative of the caring support that the Resident Assistants gave to Betty during her stay at Sylvan Woods and The Haven. Even as her body wore out and her short-term memory faded, she maintained her fiercely independent spirit and was very determined to keep doing as many things as possible for herself right to the end. The body has been cremated. A Memorial Service will be held at First Presbyterian Church, 215 Locust NE, Albuquerque, NM on Sunday, February 8, 2009 at 12:30 p.m. A reception will follow the Service. Robertson-Jay Funeral Home of Ottumwa, IA is in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to C.H. Diebold Missions, 5 Eldorado Circle, Santa Fe NM 87508 or to A.R.T.A. 111 Tulane Dr. SE, Albuquerque NM 87106.
