Black, Charles E., age 90 and lifelong resident of the Charleston area, passed away on Monday (April 6, 2009) at the Hilltop Convalescent Center. Services celebrating and honoring his life will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday (April 9) at Adams Funeral Chapel in Charleston with Reverend Bill Boaz officiating. Burial will follow in Mound Cemetery, Charleston. Visitation will be held Thursday from 11:00 a.m. until Service time. Charlie's family requests that memorial gifts in his honor be made to the Charleston High School Future Farmer's of America. Gifts may be left on the Memorial Table at the Visitation or Services or mailed to Adams Funeral Chapel, 2330 Shawnee Drive, Charleston, IL 61920. Charlie was born in Casey, Illinois on February 25, 1919, a son of the late Leebert R. and Nellie M. (Hill) Black. He was united in marriage to Ruby Green on July 6, 1940 in Charleston. Ruby preceded him in death on April 25, 1973 and he later married a good friend Klara June (Pearcy) Hudson on July 29, 1974. They shared twenty-seven years of marriage prior to her death on August 25, 2001. Charlie is survived by eight children, Tanya Ferguson, Valerie Leonard and husband Jerry, all of Charleston, Stancey Granger and husband John of Edwardsville, Illinois, Mike Hudson and wife Carolyn of Houston, Texas, Carl Black, Elmer Black and wife Twila, Bob Black and wife Marie, all of Charleston, and John Black and wife Mary of Belleville, Illinois; a son-in-law, Larry Edgin of Prairieville, Louisiana; nineteen grandchildren; forty-three great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; two sisters, Erma Baughman and Edith Heaton of Frankfort, Indiana; a brother, Donald Black and wife Marilyn also of Frankfort; and many extended family members and their families. In addition to his parents and both wives, Charlie was preceded in death by a daughter, Chrystal (Hudson) Edgin; a granddaughter, Mary Kay Drake; two brothers, Russell Black and Paul Black; and three sisters, Evelyn Black, Eva Fritz and Eunice Hill Titus. Charlie was a member of the Mattoon Moose Lodge 803 and was employed by several area businesses throughout the years. He thoroughly enjoyed his job as a tube mill operator at Kuehne Manufacturing in Mattoon and retired from Young's Radiator also located in Mattoon. He loved farming which included his small family farm located near Lerna and also for Gale Baker and Bob Rupel. Charlie was also a Union Carpenter and helped to build several local bridges and several dorms on the E.I.U. campus. His belief in hard work and doing your best was apparent in whatever task he undertook. Charlie's friendly and outgoing personality created a multitude of lasting friendships. He could strike up a conversation with anybody anywhere anytime; and, he never ran out of topics to discuss or stories to tell. Many of those stories would often contain memories of his childhood years, growing up in Diona, as they were a special time for him. Being a truly self-taught and self-made man created in Charlie a "jack-of-all-trades" and it seemed there wasn't anything he couldn't do - or learn to do. His generosity touched the hearts of many as he used his skills to lend a helping hand to those in need. Charlie liked to fish and enjoyed times spent at the house on Lake Mattoon and he kept life simple by keeping busy doing the things he most enjoyed such as driving a tractor, mowing the lawn, gardening, and planting flowers. The onset of spring always brought with it new flower beds (often in new and unusual places) as a result of bulbs planted the previous fall. Charlie always put the needs of his family first and it was important to him that he be a good provider for them. He was a supportive father and an active participant in the local Boy Scouts organization and with his sons helped to build Camp John Boyd. The importance of family was always acknowledged and Charlie was eager for each and every family gathering. He adored his grandchildren and great-grandchildren and if there was a baby around Charlie was sure to be close by he took great joy in celebrating a new life. Charlie endeared himself to all who knew him even after becoming a resident at Hilltop as he was elected Homecoming King and Valentine King by the staff. Charlie's life encompassed faith, family and friends and he was blessed with an adoring family and the special love of granddaughter, Teresa Livingston, who was also his devoted caregiver. Those whose lives he touched with his gentle kindness and genuine love will always treasure their many memories.

He was the youngest of seven. His siblings were Calvin, Margaret, Delma, Faye, Hazel and Ruth. His childhood years were spent in Oxford, Nebraska, with a side trip of a year or so to Fort Collins, Colorado. When he was 12-years-old, the family moved to Rapid City, South Dakota. He graduated from Rapid City High School in 1944. Jack, his parents, and sister Ruth followed sisters Delma, Faye and Hazel to Seattle, Washington, after his graduation. He worked for a time for Boeing Aircraft in Seattle, then returned to Rapid City, and in October 1944 joined the Navy with two school friends. He trained at Camp Faragut in Idaho and Gulf Port, Michigan. He served aboard the Astoria and was on his ship in the harbor in Japan when Peace Treaty papers were signed. After discharge in April 1946, he returned to Rapid City, went to Lead, S.D. and worked in gold mines for a time, then went to business college for one year in Rapid City. He then became an employee of Bell Telephone Company, working on construction crews and then as a cable splicer helper. He spent some months in 1948 and 1949 in Alliance, Nebraska, preparing for going to a dial system. Here he met and began dating Margaret (Peggy) Titus who also was employed with Ma Bell. He proposed in June and on August 28th, 1949, they married and took up married life in Rapid City. In a few months they moved to Belle Fourche, S.D. (Jack was transferred), where on August 1, 1950, their first child Nicola (Nicki) Sue was born. A few months later Jack was transferred back to Rapid City, where he became disenchanted and resigned his job. He took his family to Yakima, Washington. He found telephone work in Richland, Washington with General Electric in 1951 and commuted on weekends. During this time, their son John Charles was born on February 5, 1952, in Yakima. After an 11-month wait in July 1952, Jack was assigned a government 'A' house for his family in Richland. On October 22, 1954, a second daughter, Lenora (Norri) Lyn was born. In February 1956, he resigned his job and moved his family to Redlands, California. There he worked for a telephone company that is now GTE.

In October 1959, the family returned to Yakima, Washington where Jack found work with GTE in Kennewick. In six months there was an opening with General Electric in the Telephone Division and in February 1960, the family again took up residence in Richland. Jack retired in November 1988 from GTE with 37 years bridged services time. Jack and Peggy would have been married 55 years in August. Jack had been an elder at West Side United Protestant Church in Richland, and Chairman of the Mission Commission twice.

He played basketball and baseball in Belle Fourche, S.D. and basketball and softball in Richland. Jack loved sports, good country music and playing his mouth harp. His sense of humor is one of the great things that will be remembered. He loved to tease. He was a loving father who taught his children well.

Bush, Cynthia Danielle 1983-2008. Cynthia was born with a virus (C.M.V.), which left her blind, deaf, quadriplegic and grossly retarded, with chronic seizures. Cynthia was an angel sent from above. When with her, the world would melt away as she took you to a special place. She shared her world with those that would go and were treated and taught of a world of sweetness, innocence and love. She brought people to care, share and love. Though in her world there was also sorrow and pain, she taught how with others you can get up and smile again. Cynthia was born at Kaiser Vallejo on Jan. 29, 1983. She lived in Napa until she was 17. She attended many schools in Napa: Wintun, Salvador, El Centro and Napa High School. She then moved to Santa Rosa. In Santa Rosa she attended Marie Carello High School. She graduated from special education at the age of 22. She loved most to be in her mommy’s arms. She loved to play with mylar balloons, especially in the middle of the night. A favorite activity she loved was to use a switch button to turn toys, lights and fans on, or to vibrate her chair. She enjoyed touching things gently, except her mother’s hair which she pulled as a joke. She did have a sense of humor with jokes she would do. She loved to be with people, to sit and look out windows and watch television upside down. She liked to feel the vibration of movement and music, to be jiggled, and to smile big and just live. Her best friends were Katie Rose Thomson and Johnny Jessup. She is survived by her mother, Elaine and husband, Jim Paoli; her father, Rodney and wife, Venita Bush; brother James Bush; great-niece Ariana; step-brother and sister, Christopher and Elizabeth Bush; grandparents Nancy and Harry Smernes; grandmother Margaret Bush-Schloesser; and grandparents Carol and Ken Paoli. She is also survived by her Auntie Sue and Joe Griego; cousins Alisha, Andrea and Alexa Griego; uncle Greg Titus; aunt Barbara Gomez; cousins Greg and Jason Gomez; two other aunts, one other uncle and two more cousins (Venita side); and especially by the incredible staff of many nurses and aides that were her family, her teachers, her class aides, her classmates, her day program; and the many agencies that served her needs. She was loved by all who met her. Sissy will be missed with lots of love and smiles. Since her ministry here on this earth was finished, Jesus called her home to Heaven, where with her long, honey-blond hair blowing, she runs, sings, dances and is free. Cynthia was preceded in death by her grandpa, Phil Titus; grandpa Don Bush; and Katie Rose Thomson. Cynthia Danielle Bush passed July 3, 2008, at Kaiser Santa Rosa. She was 25.

Cumming, Ruth Lenore (Titus), mother of 5, grandmother of 10, and great-grandmother of 13, died Jan. 29 at Cape Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. She had met many challenges in her life, including the untimely death of her husband, James G. Cumming, in 1964 at the age of 48. He had suffered through a long, asbestos-related illness, and she was at his side through it all. As the oldest girl in a family of 7 children, she had helped her mother in the care of her siblings during the Great Depression, when her father lost his business and home. Years after her husbands death, she remarried and added 6 children to her household. She enjoyed boating to Marthas Vineyard, and the South Shore, and traveling to Caribbean islands and Europe. She lived in Weymouth, Norwell, Hanover, and later in Florida until her mid-80s, when she moved back to Massachusetts to be closer to her children and grandchildren. She was curious and self-educated, and her favorite pastime was reading | fiction and nonfiction books, and as many as two newspapers a day, cover to cover. She loved living near the ocean, and playing golf. After teaching the game to women in her family, an annual golf tournament was held in her honor for nearly two decades at Holly Ridge Golf Club in Sandwich. In the past 15 years, she had faced the challenges of Alzheimers disease, and broken bones in her hip, legs and shoulder, and subsequent surgeries and rehabilitation, and went through them all with determination and a smile. Her strength confounded her doctors, children, and her caregivers at Cape Heritage, with whom she was very popular because of her enduring spirit. She leaves her daughters, Linda Joyce and her husband, Bob; Janice Miles and her husband, Chris; her sons, Robert, and his wife, Kathleen; Donald, and his wife, Kathleen; and Steven, and his wife, Debra; eight grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; and her brother, Robert Titus, and his wife, Helen, of Carver.
