Herman, Meredith, 97, of Fergus Falls, died Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2008, at Broen Memorial Home. He was born April 30, 1911, to Henry and Ellen (Hanson) Herman on a farm in Marboe Township, Sargent County, N.D., where he grew up. On Aug. 17, 1936, he married Nellie Huckell in Britton, S.D. They lived one year in Twin Valley and ran a hotel and restaurant with his brother, Clarence and his wife, Gertrude. After a year, they sold the business to Clarence and bought a quarter of land east of Havana, N.D., and built a dance hall called The Gulch Tavern, which they ran for three years. In 1945, they purchased some land a mile north of there where they moved their house and built a new set of buildings. They farmed and raised registered Hereford cattle which they showed at Stock Shows all over North Dakota. In 1948, registered quarter horses were added to their operation. In 1952, they had a sale and moved their cattle and horses to Boulder, Colo., and in 1954, they moved to a farm north of Ft. Collins, Colo. A disease destroyed their cattle herd forcing them to start over again. They returned to North Dakota in 1955, and bought a farm near Milnor. In 1964, they bought a small ranch near Henning where they continued to raise cattle and horses. In 1972, they retired and moved into Vining, but Meredith kept his horses and also sold trailers until 1982, when they moved to Nashua to be close to their daughter. They ran the post office in Nashua until 1994, when they decided to retire for good and moved into the Goldenwood Apartments in Fergus Falls. Meredith truly enjoyed his Quarter horses which he showed and trained from 1948 until 1994. He earned many trophies with his grand champion stallions and mares that he raised. He was also instrumental in starting Watermelon Days at Vining, and would haul watermelons in his horse trailer from Oklahoma. He also authored a book, was a self-taught carpenter and he and Nellie square danced every opportunity they had until they were both well into their 80s. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Orvis, Lester and Clarence; a sister, Alice "Toots"; a son-in-law, Roger Koltes; and a grandson, Miles Thornton.

She was one of three children born to Walter Clyde and Eliza Olive “Nell” (Boose) Poole on Nov. 28, 1927. On June 14, 1953, she married John Henry Hines, who precedes her in death. Bobbie graduated from Sharon High School in 1945 and from Shadyside School of Nursing in 1948 as a registered nurse. She worked primarily as a private duty nurse but also shared her skills in our local hospitals, industrial mills, public schools, nursing homes and as an insurance porta-medic (nurse). She was very proud to be an “old-school nurse” where compassion and caring for her patients always came first. After retirement, Bobbie remained active volunteering her time. She organized the selling of paper hearts in front of local businesses to raise money for the American Heart Association, assisted with blood drives for the Red Cross, volunteered her time at the Prince of Peace Center, and assisted with vision screening for the Keystone Blind Association where she was the proud recipient of the prestigious Nettie Mann and Guardian Angel awards.

She was a lifetime member of the “OG Club,” a group of high school friends who maintained their friendships through the years. These ladies were an important part of Bobbie’s life; their friendship could never be matched nor replaced. Bobbie was a devout Christian who spent many hours reading the Bible and fellowshipping with friends. She touched the lives of many people with her smile and generosity and maintained a wonderful sense of humor. She enjoyed music, especially big bands, and has always been an avid reader. One of her favorite pastimes was playing cards, but her greatest love was her grandchildren and she found immeasurable joy spending time with them. Bobbie is survived and will forever be remembered by her daughters, Linda M. Hines of Elon, N.C., R. Jane Hines of York, Pa., Laura Fleming of Hermitage, and Judi A. Reagle and her husband, Jim, of Hermitage; and a son Jon P. Hines and his wife, Amy, of Hermitage. She also leaves seven beautiful grandchildren, M.

Hoovler, June T., formerly of 105 Laurel Drive, a lifelong resident of Franklin, died at 5:30 a.m. Sunday, June 8, 2008, at Pristine Pines in Wexford. Mrs. Hoovler had been living there since January and died after a brief illness. She had just celebrated her 90th birthday. Born May 12, 1918, she was the daughter of Donald and Verda Hazlett Titus. She graduated from Franklin High School in 1937, and was the senior class treasurer. For the next 10 years she worked at the courthouse eventually rising to be deputy treasurer of Venango County. Her efficiency and organizational skills in all things mathematical served her well in later years when she, with her husband, Robert Hoovler, owned and operated Feldman Jewelers for 21 years. It was Mrs.Hoovler who kept the ship running smoothly from behind her desk as she balanced the books. Both retired from their business in 1986. June and Bob were married on Sept. 16, 1941, in the First Evangelical United Brethren Church on Buffalo Street in Franklin, now Christ United Methodist. They celebrated their 61st anniversary before his death in November 2002. Both were active in their church from a young age. June's contributions to her church were far-reaching. She was responsible for the making more than 80 robes for the church's youth choirs and was their accompanist. She became church organist, playing for services, weddings and funerals and in doing so touched many lives. In 2004 she was honored by her church, becoming its first organist emeritus after playing for years. She also served on many boards and commitees and was the treasurer for the Christ Ambassador Sunday school class. While Bob served in World War II, June joined other war wives in forming a sewing club. Starting in 1944, the friends met monthly for years and the group still survives today. Her children remember well how diligent she was in making everything perfect before the ladies would come to her home. Because June loved new challenges, she was self-taught in many areas. She sewed, crocheted, painted, and was a computer whiz before it was popular. Golf also became an obsession as she hit them short but straight even into her 80s. She learned how to groom her Scotties, her own children and any neighbor kids she could 'catch'. Her home with five children was also a challenge but again she organized, directed and managed even into the wee hours of the morning. She applied the same kind of diligence in all aspects of her life whether it was stripping every bannister and piece of woodwork in her house at 516 11th St. or organizing her and Bob's FHS class reunions. In recent years June survived breast cancer at 86 and knee replacement at 88. She faced these setbacks and recovered through her faith and hard work. June is survived by her five children, R. Park Hoovler and wife, Judy, of Falls Church, Va., Marcia Hannan and husband, Bill, of Wexford, Rita Hale and husband, Mark, of Franklin, Earl Hoovler and wife, Jo-Ann, of Leesburg, Va. and Keith Hoovler and wife, Kathy, of Maplewood, N.J.; eight grandchildren, Megan Hale of Baltimore, Md., Andrew Hale of New York City, Ny., Grace Hannan and Julia Hannan, both of Wexford, Robyn Hoovler and Emily Hoovler, both of Leesburg, Va., and Keri Hoovler and Jacob Hoovler, both of Maplewood, N.J. Also surviving is a half-sister, Barbara Beachy of Filton, Del. In addition to her parents and husband, June was preceded in death by her brother, Robert Titus; and a granddaughter, Jenna Hoovler. Friends may call from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday in the Huff Chapel, 312 W. Park St., Franklin. Visitation will also occur from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday at Christ United Methodist Church on Buffalo Street prior to the funeral service at 11 a.m. Rev.

Hull, Bradford. At the home of his daughter, Mrs. J. E. Davis, near Coldwater, Kansas, on Saturday, March 12, 1904, Bradford Hull, aged 83 years, 5 months and 1 day. At 4 o'clock a.m. on last Saturday, after lapsing into unconciousness for about 24 hours, Bradford Hull, father of Spencer Hull, of this city, and of Mrs. J. E. Davis, northeast of town, died without any apparent struggle or pain. He had been an invalid from paralysis for eight years and was incapable during that time, of walking. On the Sunday before his death he began to fail in strength, and gradually his remaining vitality gave way. The funeral services were held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Davis at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Rev. I. W. Bailey, of the Baptist church, preaching an appropriate sermon. Rev. J. B. Handy, of the M. E. church, assisted in the services. Burial took place in the Coldwater cemetery. The deceased was born in Chester co., Pennsylvania, October 11, 1820. At the age of 7 he moved with his parents to Morrow co., Ohio, where he lived for nearly 67 years. On October 5, 1843, he was united in marriage to Miss Nancy Titus. Nine children were born to the union, 6 of whom are living. The son, Spencer Hull, and a daughter, Mrs. Davis, were the only children present at the funeral exercises. There are few more patient, more unassuming and withal, more honorable men or more conscientious and upright citizens than was Bradford Hull. He bore his affliction without a murmur and with remarkable patience. For the past 15 years he had made his home most of the time with Mr. and Mrs. Spencer Hull. A part of the time was county for 7 years. Before coming to Kansas he spent a couple of years in Chicago. It was during his stay spent at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Davis. Mr. Hull had lived in that city that he was stricken with paralysis. For nearly all his life he had been a member of the Baptist church and had lived a consistent and exemplary Christian life. In his death the relatives and friends deeply mourn the loss of a kind father and good man, and especially will those who for so many years, so lovingly administered to his every need, feel the pang of his absence.

His father, Beryl Kelly, worked in the mines for "Cap" Lathrop. His first memory was of watching his mother Catherine "Kay" out the cabin window carrying pails of water by a yoke up to the cabin. Most of his childhood and teens were spent in Fairbanks, where he sold newspapers and worked for the Model Café as a janitor and potato peeler and at the Ladd Field power plant. Jobs were easy to come by in Fairbanks during the war; later he returned to the Healy area as a dynamite blaster, then to Goodnews Bay as a cat skinner.

He had a deep appreciation for the culinary and fine arts. He loved classical music and spending time with his family and friends. He was also known for his exploring nature, traveling all over the United States, and training for the U.S. Coast Guard that included electronics (LORAN) school in Groton, Conn. He spent many a weekend exploring the New York City sights. He was also stationed in many places, such as Hawaii and Japan during the Korean War. After his proud tour of duty he returned to Fairbanks, where he joined his father, Beryl, and uncle Halford Kelly who were starting a business now known as Kelly's Tire & Wheel; it has been in business for 54 years. In 1958 he met Lillian King through his sister, Kay, and they were married June 14, 1959. They had two children and made a home on the Old Steese Highway. They were able to travel to China in 1979 right after President Nixon was there, and later to Europe several times, including Russia where his mother's family was from and to see the Hermitage. As his health declined, he spent part of his time in Bremerton with his wife, Lillian, and near his sister, Dorothy, and family. Andrew loved Alaska and was proud to be a Pioneer from Fairbanks. He is survived by his wife, Lillian, son, Daniel Kelly, of Fairbanks, and his daughter, Kimberly Kelly, of Portland, Ore.; sisters and brothers-in-law, Dorothy and Jim Vring of Poulsbo, Wash., and Kay and Fred Myers of Little Rock, Ark.; cousins, Michael and Sherie Kelly, Larry and Nancy Kelly, Terry and Nancy Kelly, Peter and Pari Kelly, Delores and George McKee, Betty Lou and Steve Titus and Donna and David Wolfe and families.

Kuchera, Emil "Moe" passed away suddenly on February 28, 2004 at the Jupiter Convalescence Pavilion. He had suffered from injuries sustained from a fall and had spent the previous six months recuperating when death occurred. Emil Joseph "Moe" was born January 9, 1925 in Monongahela, PA and was the fourth son of John and Cecilia Skaldany Kuchera, who immigrated from Banska Bystricia, Slovakia in the early 1900's. His father was a Pennsylvania coal miner and worked long hard days to support his wife and children. In 1943, Moe graduated from Monongahela High School. He immediately enlisted in the U.S. Army and was shipped overseas and served predominately in the European Theater of World War II. He was promoted to Sergeant and commanded an anti-aircraft unit that traveled across Europe with Patton's forces. He received an honorable discharge in 1949 and received the American Campaign Medal, European, African, Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, the Good Conduct Medal and W.W. II Victory Medal. With the help of the GI Bill, Moe enrolled in the University of Pittsburgh and graduated with honors with an engineering degree in 1946. He then enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served as a trainer as well as serving on the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt until he was honorably discharged in 1953. During this time, he met and later married Florence Caretti, a legal secretary, also from Monongahela, PA. In 1952, he was hired by Pratt & Whitney Aircraft in Hartford, CT. While in Connecticut, he served in many engineering capacities before being transferred to Florida in 1957. They became one of the founding families of North Palm Beach, relocating there when Northlake Boulevard was still only a dirt road. It was there that their only child, Jay, was born. Moe worked on the J-57, the J-75 and the U-2 spy plane engine and later on the F100. He was appointed to the key supervisory position at Pratt's Research and Development Center and was later named Unit Supervisor and was responsible for the Development of the J-58 engine that powered the famous SR-71. His engines powered the aircraft that traveled three times the speed of sound – approximately 2000 mph. He was assigned to be the lead test flight engineer in the development of aircraft and spent several years going between Florida, Connecticut, California and Nevada, spending a great deal of time in Area 51 to assist in the development of the engines for aircraft used throughout the world today. He also assisted with the development of engines used for the NASA space shuttles. He retired from Pratt & Whitney in 1980, but at the request of Frank McAbee, was asked to return as a consultant. He worked as a consultant with Pratt & Whitney and Turbo Power and Marine until the mid 1990's. In this capacity, he was a consultant to many governments throughout the world including China, New Zealand, Australia and many European and Middle Eastern countries. Moe enjoyed the friendship of many of the founding fathers of the area and organized a volleyball team that included Marshall Benjamin, Robert Abernathy, Ken May and many other professionals from the Village. He was a daredevil, and enjoyed flying with his friend, John Lilbeurg in his various acrobatic aircraft. The camaraderie of this group of men, including "the old eagles" and memories of this time remained dear to him to his death. He also enjoyed scuba diving, falconry, fishing, boating, gourmet cooking and was a world traveler after retirement. He was a devoted family man and a loyal and generous neighbor and friend to many. In his later years, his greatest joy was to spend Wednesday evenings at Harry and the Natives, listening to his son's band, "Bonefide", while relaxing with family and friends. His loyalty, generous spirit, down to earth persona, sense of humor and love of a good joke will long be remembered by family and friends alike. He is survived by his son, Dr. Jay Kuchera; daughter-in-law, Claire Rice-Kuchera; grand- children: Mikala Ann, Kelsa Ross and Caden Decker; nieces and nephews: Marcie Adamo, Joseph Kuchera, Donna Buchak, Allen Kuchera, Joyce Titus, Deanne Truhan, Linda Gage, and Joanne Morin; numerous grandnieces and grandnephews; as well as his devoted friend and companion, Shirley Schulte.
