Michael L. Parizek
PARIZEK, Michael L.

Feb 6, 1947 – Sep 23, 2016
On September 23, 2016 we lost an amazing husband, father, grandpa, brother, and friend. Michael Lee Parizek was born on February 6, 1947 in Omaha to George “Stumps” and Lucille Parizek. He attended St. Bridget’s school and graduated from South High in 1965. He attended Omaha University “UNO” and graduated from BYU with a Master’s Degree in Engineering. His career began at Western Electric and he retired from Lucent in 1999. He was also a proud card-carrying member of Menard’s Contractors Club. He was a devoted member of Mary Our Queen Parish, living his faith in action and words. Throughout the years he served the parish in every way imaginable and never hesitated to step up to a challenge.

The center of Michael’s life was always his family. He is survived by his wife and best friend, Mary (Mahlberg) Parizek; their children: Brian Parizek (Lisa), Kristen Schwers (Roger) Andrew Parizek (Paula), Amy Schwartzenberger (Isaac), and Jill Chandler (Noel). He was a loving and wonderful Grandpa to: Sidney, Emma, and Lucy Parizek, Steven, Alex, and Lauren Schwers, Lily and Oscar Parizek, and Courtney Chandler. He had hoped to meet his tenth grandchild, whose arrival is expected in October. Being a loving big brother to his siblings was also important to Mike, their “Pater Familias,” a title they all took to heart: Pat Parizek, Sr. (Nora), Georgeann Parizek, RSCJ, and Joe Parizek. He was a blessing and a wonderful brother-in-law to: Jane Ortmeier (Tom), Carol Mahlberg, and Kevin Mahlberg (Brenda). He was also called Uncle Mike by numerous nieces and nephews, each of whom felt like his favorite. Michael was predeceased by his parents, “Stumps” and Lucille Parizek; his brother, Peter; and his parents-in-law, Bud and Elsie Mahlberg.

Anyone who was a friend of Mike knew they had a friend for life. The world was a better place because Mike Parizek was in it.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, September 27th, from 4pm to 7pm at Mary Our Queen Catholic Church, 3405 S. 118th Street, with VIGIL SERVICE at 7pm at the church.

Thomas E. Bowman
Bowman, Thomas E.

Thomas E. Bowman, born in Salina, Kansas on June 10th, 1934, passed away peacefully, at his home in Tucson, Arizona, surrounded by his wife of many years and close friends.
Tom is survived by Una N. Bowman, his loving wife of 61 years, brother-in-law Gerald Talberg, sister-in-law Jeanne Bowman, and nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his parents Leon Lewis and
Lenna Elizabeth Bowman, sisters; Betty Bowman, Barbara Blair, Phyllis Talberg and brother, Bill
Bowman.
The real story … it is hard to find a picture of just Tom. His file of pictures over a lifetime, usually included the love of his life, Una! Of course, pets of several varieties were included. A man of pure Gold, with many passions … playing music on his harmonica, singing with the accompaniment of his Ukulele.
His early years were much like that of a farm boy, and being a little rascal upon occasion. Even though his Father hated cats, Tom always managed to have one following him around and sneaking him in the house during the winter months. Blessed with a great sense of humor and desire for success, he survived those early years.
After high school, he attended Kansas State University, graduating in 1957, and married his sweetheart on June 5th, 1955. Tom started an illustrious career with Western Electric, finally retiring from AT&T in February of 1987. Somewhere along the line, he had enough time to join the U.S. Army and Reserves, with an Honorable Discharge in January of 1966.
He went on to build homes as the founder and President of Good Life Homes, Inc., a Nebraska homebuilding corporation and developed an 81 acre recreational subdivision on the Missouri River. He enjoyed many days in the family boat, exploring the Missouri. His contributions were recognized by the Governor of Nebraska who appointed Tom as Admiral in the Great Navy of the State of Nebraska.
Tom was a supporter and volunteer for many good causes, evidenced by his lengthy list of accomplishments.
It then became of he and Una to travel the United States by a motor home. Several years on the road, and a Prevost which he loved, brought them to Pacific Shores RV Resort. Tom, a staunch supporter of Pacific Shores Motor Coach Resort were long time owners of Lot 14, where many were welcome to come and sit a spell. Tom and Una were instrumental in welcoming new owners and sharing how the park worked. He always offered a pleasant salutation when owners or renters walked past Lot 14. He was an exemplary citizen and representative of the Pacific Shores community.
Tom was instrumental in the making sure the Outdoor Resorts of Oregon bankruptcy filings were all
correct. His efforts discovered several assets, including Tract G, the golf course (Tract D), The
Stratford/Beach Front Property, and the Welcome Center (Tract C) had not been deeded to the HOA.
His tenacious efforts resulted in the final transference of those properties to Pacific Shores RV Resort.
Yes, he was a fighter … but with class. He had health issues a couple years ago, and fought through a
lengthy hospitalization and rehabilitation. Family and friends supported his recuperative efforts.
Some of the effects of that battle carried forward into his last battle with age related health issues.
At Pacific Shores RV Resort things didn’t change much … Tom discovered a stray cat, named him Rusty
because of his color. Rusty will miss Tom for sure, even though others take care of Rusty, there just isn’t
anyone quite like Tom. Tom Bowman is a part of our history and will be sorely missed.

Kassube, Walter Emil, Jr.
1
9 Mar 1941 – 15 May 2015
Walter Emil Kassube, Jr., 74, of Weeping Water, died Friday, May 15th, ain Omaha.
Walt was born in Alvo NE on March 19th 1941 to Walter and Nora Kassube. He was the first of 4 Children followed by sisters Janice, MaryAnn and brother Tom. They moved to Weeping Water area where he attended elementary school in rural one room school houses. He graduated from Weeping Water High School in 1958. He was hired by Western Electric shortly after. In December of 1959 he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was stationed in Ft. Campbell Kentucky where he became a paratrooper and member of the 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles. He was discharged in December of 1962 and returned to Western Electric working there for 32 years. He later drove his own semi for 3 years and hauled dynamite for Allison Supply until his health caused him to stop.
On July 11, 1964 he married Marilyn Kritenbrink. To this union were born three children, son Alan and daughters Julie and Tracey. Walt was a man of intense curiosity about everything. He had to know it worked and what made it tick. He had many interests and hobbies through the years. In the beginning it was model airplanes, remote control planes and on to get a commercial pilot’s license. At this point they moved to their acreage in the country. He spent the next few years remodeling and old farmhouse, building a garage and began restoring old tractors and old cars. Walt was like a sponge, soaking in all news, carpentry, mechanics, old cars, old tractors, machinery, farming you name it.
One of his favorite things to do was taking two lane road trips all over the United States. He always said if you want to learn about an area stay off the interstate. He and Marilyn took several two lane trips, going through small towns where he not only learned the history of the area but also a few of it’s residents. Look for the pickups Marilyn, that’s where we’re having our next meal.
In 1992 he became a grandpa for the first time and every few years thereafter it happened again until he had 9 grandchildren. They were indeed the highlight of his life and he took great delight in taking them for walks, rides on the 4-wheeler and tractor and leading them into mischief. When the doctors spoke to him about a heart transplant, he and Marilyn discussed it and he said if I don’t do it I will die. If I do it I have a 50/50 chance of more time with my grandchildren. Before his transplant surgery his oldest granddaughter came to him and told him she was carrying his first great grandchild. When he woke up Marilyn asked if he remember what Courtney said and he said I sure do and a huge smile crossed his face. His grandchildren were definitely the loves of his life.
Walter is survived by wife Marilyn Kassube; two daughters, Tracey, (Todd) Ashlock, Julie Zimmer (David Cavanaugh); son ,Alan (Dawn) Kassube; nine grandchildren, Brittany Kassube, William Hoffman, Courtney (Daniel) Zemunski; Breann, Morgan & Emily Zimmer; Kaitlynn, Madsion & Lauren Ashlock; and expecting first great grandchild; two sisters, Janice Larson and MaryAnn (Richard) Lorensen; two brothers, Tom ( Kay) Kassube and Bruce ( Esther) Ames, plus numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents. Visitation: Monday May 18th 1 – 8 P.M. Services: Tuesday May 19th at 10:30 A.M. Interment: Fairview Cemetery, Papillion.

Robert L. Donahoo
Donahoo, Robert L
.
Donahoo, Robert L. Age 90 Robert or “Big Bob” as his stepson would refer to him, passed peacefully at hospice on Sunday, September 13, 2015 from cardiac complications. Bob was a Nebraska boy through and through. Growing up and educated in Lincoln established the work and ethical foundation for a successful career with Western Electric and its subsidiaries. And yes, Bob was a Husker Fan….sometimes… Bob had numerous strengths and one of them was being humble. However, the one thing he would brag about was catching his wife, Fredine. To describe her as the love of his life would be an understatement. They were best, best friends. Routinely winning at Shanghai rummy, overpowering crossword puzzles, riding his bike at Zorinski Park, attempting the guitar – finally leaving it to his favorite musician, Chet Atkins, breakfast with his friends every Thursday, travel, family and church activities seemed to fill his retirement.
Bob left instructions to donate his body to the NE Anatomical Board for research purposes.
He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Fredine; beloved family: stepdaughter Cheryl Schemanski (Mike); stepson Hal Herron; sister Connie Caselton; nephew Mark Caselton (Cindy); granddaughter Kayci Herron and grandsons, Tony and Nicolas Labrioli and many great-grandchildren.
Services: Hope Presbyterian Church in Millard on Saturday, October 3, at 10:30 A.M. with Bob’s longtime friend Pastor Dave Matsamura officiating.
Memorials: Suggest to Hope Presbyterian Church, in lieu of flowers.

Remembering Albert Albin by Darrel “Suds” Suddeth
I also think Al worked in Plant Trades. But before that work assignment, he worked near me on a pair of tandem lines in Bldg. 50 in the fall of 1958. He was full of interesting sea stories of his days serving as a merchant seaman during WWII. He sailed aboard Liberty ships and had many wild war stories. One of my favorite was the time he was aboard a ship in a convoy to Murmansk and his battle station was to man a wooden (fake) 4” gun on the fantail. If a U Boat surfaced near the convoy, the merchant seamen “gun crew” would run to the wooden deck gun and point it at the U Boat hoping to convince the U Boat Captain to dive. I remember another story when his ship carried trucks to Iran and the ship’s company was instructed to “train” men who had never driven a truck before to drive a truck north to the Soviet Union. He told me the crew members would get a man into the driver seat, show him how to step on the clutch, start the engine and show him how to let the clutch ‘out’ and point the direction he should drive and turn him loose. Al Albin was full of interesting stores for a twenty year old co-worker.

John A. Puente
Puente, John A.
Jan 14, 1939 – May 9, 2014
John Abraham Puente, “P Pa,” age 75 of Omaha, died May 9, 2014 at Bergan Mercy Hospital after a courageous battle with lymphoma. He passed away peacefully with his family at his side on a beautiful spring day. John was born to Manuel A. and Juana Puente on January 14, 1939 in Grand Island, NE. He grew up in Grand Island in a close family with many brothers and sisters. He served and was a proud member of the Marine Corps. After discharge, he settled in Omaha, where he met, at a dance, Ramona Eileen, who proved to be the love of his life. They were united in marriage on July 3, 1964. John worked at then Western Electric. He took pride that he continued to work there through retirement. John enjoyed many things, but the light of his life was Ramona. He adored her. From the day that he met her until the day he died, nothing was more special to him than a simple dinner and movie with her. Their song, “Our Day Will Come,” holds special meaning to the family. He also cherished family, always looking forward to the next family reunion, and recollecting those family members who had gone before him so as to preserve their legacy. He loved sharing Husker game day with friends and family, reading how-to books, sometimes just being silly, and taking walks with Ramona and the family canines. He always made time to catch up with his children and dote on his grandchildren. His greatest gift was his faith in God, which he passed on to his family. He had unwavering optimism that tomorrow’s possibilities were endless as long as one truly believed. Survivors include his loving wife of 49 years, Ramona; 5 children: son and daughter-in-law, Dr. John Christopher and Theresa Puente of Lincoln, NE; daughter, Lisa M. Puente of Council Bluffs, IA; daughter and son-in-law, Leslie R.

Passed away on March 28, 2014
Debbie Ridge and I attended a service for Hank Vetter on Tuesday April 1, 2014. He passed away on March 28th. There was no notice in the paper, I just happened to hear of his passing from a neighbor that attended the same church as Hank. I’m sure you would remember him as the “blind guy in Protectors.” I don’t know for sure, but I think he retired from AT&T. He was 88 years old and died of pneumonia. He is survived by his son, Hank Jr. and grandchildren.
I hope you can pass the word to the retirees. Thank you.

Feb 16, 1931 – Dec 5, 2013
Preceded in death by her loving husband, Jerry, after 40 plus years of marriage; parents; sister, Shirley Prusha; and brother, Robert Eyman Jr. Delores was the first of three children born to Marie and Robert Eyman, Sr. She spent her childhood in the Brown Park area of Omaha. She married Jerry J. Tesnohlidek. They moved to Bellevue, NE, where they raised their 2 sons, Gary and Rob. As her health failed, she moved to an assisted living apartment. In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, she loved being Megan, Laura and Grant Tesnohlidek’s grandmother. That joy was multiplied this past year when her great grandson, Grayson was born to Grant and his wife Jenny.

Schimonitz, Rita (Roberta)

Age 83 – Feb 15, 2012
Born to the late William and Helen Shimkus on April 18, 1928, in Omaha, NE, Rita died peacefully in her sleep, after
an extended battle with COPD. She is survived by her beloved husband of 62 years, Joseph; daughter, Linda Cuyler; and son, Robert; all of Omaha. Rita’s career began in house-wares at the Brandeis department store in downtown Omaha. She later went to work as a switchboard operator at Refinite. And after a stint as a salad lady at Anthony’s Steakhouse, she joined Western Electric in 1970, where she worked until her retirement from Lucent Technologies in 1993. Rita will long be remembered for her love of all things Christmas. She designed elaborate ornaments for the holiday she cherished, baked enough cookies to last until the 4th of July, and left her tree up from Thanksgiving till Ground-hog Day. She also loved to cook and read. And among her greatest treasures, she valued the many pets who brought joy into her home and light into her life. Rita has requested NO VISITATION OR SERVICES.
A CELEBRATION of Life will be announced at a later date. Memorials to the charity of your choice.

Raymond Madsen retired from Western Electric on 2-8-1985.  He was 88 at the time of his death.

An autopsy did not determine the cause of death of an 88-year-old man who had been dead for several months before being found inside his home late last week.
Deputy Chief Jeff Elliott said the cause of death for Raymond Madsen remains unknown.

Elliott said the case is still under investigation and that investigators are working with the Dodge County Attorney’s Office to determine a course of action.

Doris Olsen

Sep 26 1930 – Dec 28 2009
     Doris Margaret Olsen was born September 26, 1930 near Burke, South Dakota to William and Lena (Schrader) Woehl and she died December 28, 2009 at the Rosebud Country Care Center in Gregory, South Dakota at the age of 79 years, 3 months and 2 days following a battle with lung cancer.
     Doris attended Neuharth School south of Burke and graduated from Burke High School in 1948. While attending high school she worked for Ollie Larson at the Burke Café and Hotel. She left Burke in 1950 and moved to Rapid City where she worked for almost a year before venturing to Omaha, Nebraska. She lived in Omaha for 53 years. She worked for two grocery stores and an ammunition facility in Mead, Nebraska. In 1958 she started working for Western Electric and worked there for 31 years, retiring in 1990.
     In 1969, Doris was united in marriage to Clarence (Ole) Olsen from Brainerd, Minnesota, no children were born to this union. Ole passed away in 1979 and she continued to live in Omaha.
     In July of 2000, she began a volunteer job sewing little hug-a-bears for the pioneers. She had sewn over 20,000 through July of 2009. After moving to Burke she was the only one they could find to sew them so they would send them to her in South Dakota. Before becoming ill with cancer she would drive to Omaha to pick up bears that had not been sewn. Sometimes there would be as many as 800 at one time. She loved her computer. Doris moved back to Burke in November of 2003, happy to be back in her home town.

Face Masks for Davao City


Bud and Jo Jo decided to take all the material scraps left over from the Clothes for the Children project and make face masks for the poor villagers.

Last week, the government ordered all citizens to wear masks when venturing outside during the month-long lockdown. Most all of the very poor do not have facemasks.

As of April 4th, the Philippines has reported 3,246 COVID-19 cases with 152 deaths. The main island of Luzon which is 120 miles from Davao City has been under lockdown since March 16th, while local authorities in other provinces have imposed their own set of restrictions.

Mayor Sara Duterte has placed all of Davao City under “community quarantine” amid the growing number of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in the country.

In her Executive Order No. 1 issued on March 15, Duterte said the local government here should take “aggressive and proactive” measures, as the number of COVID-19 cases in the country continues to rise.
