SCHUTZBERGER, JUNE Passed away Friday, January 24, 2014. Despite a lifetime of rheumatoid arthritis and heart problems, June led a very active and fulfilling life. Her career was in the field of education. June grew up in Philadelphia, PA and attended Catholic girls' schools through high school and liberal arts college. She earned a Master's Degree of the University of Pennsylvania. During World War II, she attempted to enlist in the Army but initially was rejected due to her heart problems. She persevered and eventually was accepted on the condition that she would sign a waiver to indemnify the U.S. Government against any subsequent problems with her heart. After serving in the military, June held several positions overseas including teaching conversational English to Japanese high school teachers at Amerika House in Hiroshima. She also taught mathematics and English to non-commissioned officers in the U.S. Army so that they could attain the mandated educational level. June moved to Albuquerque from Japan in 1959. She taught 6th grade at Montezuma Elementary School here for ten years and is still remembered by many of her students. She became the first certified teacher of the gifted in the state of New Mexico, thanks to the encouragement of her coordinator, Elizabeth Paak (who initiated gifted education in APS), and Ed Marinsek, APS South Area Superintendent at that time. She was instrumental in developing the gifted program through her role as Methods and Materials teacher for the gifted. Her deepest pleasures were the NM Symphony Orchestra, world travel, duplicate bridge, and the beach, especially Clearwater Beach in Florida where she visited for 44 years. June was preceded in death by her husband, Henry Schutzberger, with whom she shared many wonderful world travel experiences; and by her only child, Dennis Williams. She is survived by two granddaughters, Deanna Torres and husband, Craig and daughters, Maya and Rhea, and Kristin Williams, all of Colorado. In recent years, she has expressed her deep gratitude many times for the support of her neighbor, Mark Kleiner and her daughter-in-law, Linda Williams. June will be missed by her many, many friends.

TUTTLE, LEON STEWART 1926 - 2013 A good man died December 29, 2013. Stewart grew up Stamford, CT, the eldest son of Leon and Ethel Tuttle, brother of Larry, husband of Dorothy, father of Cheryl, and grandfather of Cristine, He passed away during the early hours at home in Anderson South Carolina from cancer. Stewart's conviction was to be an honest kindly gentle man; he succeeded. He grew up playing football and was an avid NY Giants fan. In 1943, he joined the Navy where he proudly served in the Pacific Theatre on the USS Freestone; he drove a landing craft that ferried soldiers to shore. His ship docked at Nagasaki shortly after the atomic bomb was dropped on that city. After his military service, he apprenticed as a len's grinder for an optician. He obtained his opticians license and eventually bought New Canaan Optician; he retired in 1995. He met the love of his life, Dorothy Mazza upon his return from the Navy. Stewart and Dorothy shared a good life together, until Dorothy's passing in 2008. I have wonderful memories of our family vacations at the lake in Canada with my cousins and winter vacations in Florida with my grandparents. I have such fond memories of family and friends gathering over the years. My father is of a generation of men that is passing. A generation that stayed married, that stayed at their jobs, that were committed. We will miss you. His favorite charity was Paralyzed Veterans of America. 1410 Bryant Road, Anderson, SC 29621
