BARNHILL -- Dr. Jamie Gwyn Barnhill June 8, 1954 to January 30, 2011 Jamie began her life in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Traveling through the Academic World from Emerson Elementary, Van Buren Junior High, Highland High School (never letting people forget she was a Fighting Hornet) and then onto the University of New Mexico where she earned her degree as a Pharmacist in 1977. But with her constant search for knowledge, continued on to earn her next degree as a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Science at the University of Connecticut in 1986. From there she accepted a dual appointment with Tuffs New England Medical Center and the Jamaica Plain VA in Boston, MA. In 1990, Jamie returned to Albuquerque to accept another dual appointment as Chief of the Biopharmaceutics/ Pharmacokinetics Laboratory at the VA Cooperative Studies Program Clinical Research Pharmacy Coordinating Center and as Associate Professor of Pharmaceutics at the University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy. Her devotion to her research generated many publications during her lifetime but it was her passion for teaching that allowed her to pass on the knowledge of a career she loved, to well over 1500 practicing pharmacists over the past 20 years. With all the degrees and accomplishments to her mention, the one thing that Jamie will be remembered for the most was her unique, fun-loving and often irreverent view of life. She loved people and she loved to entertain. When you were with her, she made you feel special, and that you would always be part of her "Secret Club". Jamie passed away while on vacation in Connecticut at Hartford Hospital after a six week battle against a genetic liver condition, Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, that she never knew she had until it was too late. Jamie is survived by her Life Partner of 31 years, Joan Korkie Kerkin; her mother Bobby Barnhill; brother and sister-in-law, John and Shannon Barnhill and their children Jacob and Emma; sister Lynn Barnhill and her children Mayzie and Ava; brother and sister-in-law, Ross and Connie Barnhill and their children Ryan and Rhonda, and Rhonda's children Sebastian, Michael and Matthew; and many cousins; Also her extended family in Connecticut and Massachusetts: Pat and Wally White, Wally and Katy White and their children Billy, Emily and Tommy; Stacy and Kim White; Barbara and Walt Darcey; Tom and Amanda Darcey and their children Aidan, Brenna, Owen and Will; Joan and Albert Kerkin; Carole Kerkin and her children Zachary and Sam; Lisa and Kevin Bundy and their children Paige and Patrick; and Chris and Chris Morgan and their children Kimberly and Michael, all of which were of great help and support to both Korkie and Jamie while they were there. Jamie was pre-deceased by her father, Jim Barnhill; her paternal grandparents, JC and Eleanor Barnhill; and her maternal grandparents, Robert and Gwyneth Taylor. A special thank you goes to the staff, nurses and doctors at Manchester and Hartford Hospitals for their wonderful care of Jamie.

BAUMGARTEL -- Howard John Baumgartel, Jr., beloved father, grandfather, professor, humanitarian, activist for social justice, and friend, died on Saturday, February 12, 2011 at the Montebello Assisted Living Facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He died on the 202nd anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, whose picture hung on his wall his entire adult life. Howard grew up in western Pennsylvania and attended Yale University and Wabash College, where he earned his bachelor's degree, before joining the US Navy in 1942. During the Second World War, Howard served in the Pacific aboard the USS Ringgold as a gunnery officer. He participated in many battles, most notably at Tarawa. While on leave in 1945, Howard married Nancy Taggart in Indianapolis, who became the mother of his three children. They honeymooned in Chicago at the same hotel where Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart were spending their honeymoon. After being mustered out of the Navy, he earned an MBA at Harvard University. After working in investment banking, Howard decided to become an academician and taught at the University of Kansas (KU) for three years before attending graduate school at the University of Michigan, where he earned his Ph.D. in 1955. Howard returned to KU and worked in the Psychology Department and School of Business until he retired in 1988. Howard made many notable contributions to academic life at KU. The single largest of these was his starting and developing the Human Relations program at the university, a program based on the human potential movement of the 1950s and 1960s. Howards professional life took him to India six times, twice as a Fulbright Scholar. Each time he worked toward the economic development of the nation and made lifelong friends, especially at the Xavier Labor Relations Institute in Jamshedpur. For four years, Howard served as an assistant dean in the College of Arts and Sciences at KU. Howard married Marguerite Myers Kerfoot, a professor of art education at KU, in 1964 in Calcutta, and they lived together happily in Lawrence, Kansas until she died in October, 2009. Marguerite brought three children of her own into Howard's extended family. After retiring, Howard devoted his time to many interests, worked in a hospice program and began attending various churches in the Lawrence area. He and Nancy had joined the Mount Oread Friends Meeting in Lawrence in the late 1950s and, as his retirement years passed, he attended that meeting more and more regularly. In 2009, Howard suffered a major stroke and moved into Brandon Woods, an assisted living facility in Lawrence and was joined there by Marguerite a few months later. In December of 2009, he moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico to live closer to his family and shared with them many wonderful times in the year before he died.
