A funeral service celebrating her life will be held Wednesday, May 4 at 1:00 p.m. at Cole Community Church, followed by a reception in the fireside room, then burial at Dry Creek Cemetery under the direction of Alden-Waggoner Funeral Chapel. Pastors Jackson Cramer and David Roper will officiate. Barbara was born Jan. 24, 1928 in Longview, Wash. to Herbert and Inez Titus. She was the youngest of five daughters. She was raised in Longview and graduated from Longview High School in 1946. She then went on to graduate from Multnomah School of the Bible in Portland, Ore. in 1949. It was while she was attending Multnomah that she met and fell in love with Claude W. Leavitt. They were married on June 4, 1949 in Portland, Ore. In 1950, together, they went as pioneer missionaries with CrossWorld (UFM International) to the jungles of South America. Barbara and Claude worked in the interior of British Guyana with the Wai Wai Indians. While there, they learned the native language and taught them the Word of God. In 1960 they made contact with the Trio Indians of Suriname. Barbara was the first Caucasian woman the tribe had ever seen. Barbara and Claude lived among the tribe, learned their language, put it into print, and taught them to read and write. In 1974 Barbara and Claude moved to Boise to continue the translation of the New Testament. She accompanied Claude on several trips back and forth to Suriname. Barbara had many interests that included cooking, baking and welcoming others into their home, offering hospitality to everyone. She wrote many letters over the years keeping friends and family updated with their work and giving encouragement to those she loved. Barbara loved working in her yard and flower gardens. She was always delighted when her children and grandchildren came to visit. Up until her last weeks she was actively involved in her church and mission work. She was a caring, compassionate person who was always looking out for the needs of others. She had an adventurous spirit that helped her adapt to her many various surroundings. Whether in the jungles of South America or in Boise, she made our house a home. She made life fun for the family. After Barbara was diagnosed she was comforted by the following verses in Psalm 73, "But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. But as for me the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all Thy works." She is survived by her loving husband, Claude W. Leavitt, of 55 years; and their six children, Cal and Miriam Leavitt of Wasilla, Alaska, Claudia and Larry Glover of Star, Idaho, Steve Leavitt of Kent, Wash., Ron Leavitt of Algona, Wash., Nancy and Dean McKenzie of Boise, and Norm and Kim Leavitt of Bardstown, Ky.; 13 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. She is also survived by her oldest sister, Gertrude Hoffman of Orange City, Fla. She was preceded in death by her parents, three older sisters and a granddaughter. The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the Cole Community Church family and many others for their outpouring of support, meals, volunteers, prayers, cards and notes of encouragement. We would also like to thank St. Luke's Hospice nurses for their care of Barbara during her last weeks. Memorials may be made to Cole Community Church, designated for the Trio Indians, 8775 Ustick Road, Boise, Idaho 83704-3565.

Samuel McCleneghan Jr., 95, of Sun City, Ariz., formerly of Valley, died quietly at his home in Sun City on Saturday, June 13, 2009. He was born Aug. 19, 1913, in Omaha, the son of Dr. Samuel and Elizabeth McCleneghan. Sam Jr. graduated from Omaha Central High School in 1932. After high school, Sam attended New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, N.M., where he graduated after two years as a Cadet Major in the cavalry. After NMMI, Sam worked as a cowboy on his uncle?s 90-section sheep and cattle ranch in New Mexico and the following year on a large cattle ranch in Wyoming. After cowboying, Sam returned to college at Utah State University in 1938 where he earned his bachelor?s degree in range management. Upon graduation, Sam moved to Valley to take over operations on his father?s farm. In Valley, Sam met Delia Rose Titus from Pilger, who was teaching there. Sam and Dee were married in 1940 and moved onto the family farm west of town on Highway 64. Sam began designing and building farm equipment for use on the family farm. His wagon boxes for transporting picked corn, and a towable, gas powered corn elevator were soon in demand by Midwest farmers. Sam found himself in the business of manufacturing farm equipment for sale and the Valley Manufacturing Company was born. The company flourished with Sam?s many ideas and inventions. By the late 1940s, it had outgrown the shop on the family farm and he moved the company to its present location, now known as Valmont, along old Highway 275 northwest of Valley. Sam continued to build and grow the company constructing other kinds of agricultural equipment and pipe for the irrigation industry. He recognized the significance of an idea for a rotary self-propelled irrigation system brought to his company by an inventor. Over the next couple of years Sam worked to engineer the design and perfect the operation of this innovative irrigation system. Today these rotary center-pivot irrigation systems are a common sight and are Sam?s most widely recognized contribution to the agriculture industry worldwide In the mid-1950s, Sam sold his manufacturing company and moved his family to Texas to work on diesel power systems for the agriculture, oil, and marine industries. He also helped design and engineer remote controlled generators to power the Defense Early Warning Line (DEW Line) inside the Arctic Circle. In the early 1960s Sam returned to Nebraska as general manager of Fremont Foundry and Machine Co., later known as Nebraska Steel. There he made the company a leader in the construction of large, centrifugal pumps for the irrigation and gravel dredging industries. Sam retired in 1967. He and Dee traveled widely throughout the U.S., Europe, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Mexico, Tahiti and China. They moved to Sun City, Ariz. in 1989 where Sam enjoyed the warm climate, golf with friends and where he served as a volunteer teacher in high school wood shop for many years. Survivors include: his wife, Dee, in Sun City, Ariz., to whom he was married for 69 years; a son, Kim and his wife in Herald, Calif. and his two granddaughters; a son, Sam III and his wife, four grandsons and two great-grandsons in Breckenridge, Colo. Sam will be buried with his wife's family in Stanton. Fremont Tribune. Jun. 20, 2009.

Morris, Dolores M. "Tiny," 87, of Maple Park, died Saturday, Feb. 11, 2006, at her home. The loving hands of her family and caregivers released her into the waiting arms of her heavenly Father. She was born Sept. 29, 1918, near Streator, the third of eight children born to Charles and Ella (Shawback) Schroeder. She grew up on a farm near Leonore, Ill., where she attended a local school. After finishing the eighth grade, Dolores moved to Aurora, where she worked as a nanny and later as a beautician. As the years passed, her brothers and sisters found their way to Aurora to live with Dolores before they were married or began careers of their own. During World War II, Dolores worked as a welder at All Steel in Aurora. In the late 1940s, she met Donald Morris. Don and Dolores were united in marriage on Jan. 7, 1950. Don built their first home, and they lived in Aurora until 1955, when they moved to rural Elburn. Dolores was truly an old-fashioned farm wife, mother and homemaker. She managed the livestock, raised the kids, the garden and did the canning. She was the world's best pie maker and a wonderful baker. Her life was centered around her children, and she had an uncanny way of always knowing where they were and what they were doing. She always was calm and never needed to raise her voice; she just had a way of making the kids feel "appropriately" guilty. She was a good listener, and her home was where all of her children's friends liked to "hang out." Her career was being a mom, and she was fantastic at it! Don died on Thanksgiving Day, 1985. Dolores continued on alone, drawing on those same strengths that had seen her through the years of raising her family. In 1980, she suffered a stroke that left her with expressive aphasia. She understood everything and remembered everything, but could not express it in the usual way. Those limitations did not keep her from running her household and managing her life. In 2004, she was diagnosed with lung cancer, and again she amazed those around her. In so many ways, so many times, Dolores simply persevered to beat the odds against her and simply overcame, without fanfare but always with great humor. Dolores was a member of Community Congregational Church, Elburn. She is survived by her three children, Charles (Jean) Morris of Montgomery, Kay (Dana) Titus of Maple Park and James (Karen) Morris of Doha, Quatar; five grandchildren, Kimberly Morris of Kansas City, Mo., Katie (Thomas) Carvell of Clarksville, Tenn., Donald Morris of Baton Rouge, La., Tara Titus of Denver, Colo., and Tony Titus of Maple Park; two great-grandchildren, Jennifer and Ryan Carvell; three siblings, Lois (Darrell) Chambers of Peru, Ill., Lila (Richard) Fetzer of Aurora and Elaine Barr of Peru, Ill.; three sisters-in-law, Charlotte Miller of Hinckley, Gladys Liltz of Elk Grove Village and Norma Schroeder of Hemet, Calif.; one brother-in-law, Jerry Fauth of Edgerton, Wis.; and three very special friends and caregivers, Linda Klingbeil, Ronnie Pancoast and Melody Needham. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Donald; three sisters, Arlene Rose, Roseanne Fauth and Bernice Schroeder; one brother, Keith Schroeder; two sisters-in-law, Elizabeth Grover and Clara Morris; and six brothers-in-law, Floyd and Ernie Morris, Carl Barr, Ira Grover, Harold Rose and Francis Miller. Visitation will be from 3 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, at Conley Funeral Home, 116 W. Pierce St., Elburn. The funeral will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, at the funeral home. The Rev. Suzanne Barr, Dolores' niece from Lostant, Ill., will officiate, and interment will follow at Blackberry Cemetery. A memorial has been established in her name. Checks can be made to the Dolores M. Morris Memorial and mailed in care of P.O. Box 66, Elburn, IL 60119. Kane County Chronicle. Feb. 14, 2006.

Nelson, Dale Harold, age 55, passed away with his family by his side on Thursday, May 28, 2009. He was born in Frederic, Wisconsin, on May 7, 1954, the son of the late Harold and Esther (Nelson) Nelsen. On May 28, 1977, Dale married his loving wife, Deborah Titus, in Fond du Lac. He was a man of great integrity who exemplified generosity and kindness. Dale was loyal to God and his family and was a mentor and role model to younger men. Dale Nelsen, father and husband, was a warrior and a strong man for his family and to all that knew him. He had a big heart and just wanted to help people. It didn't matter who you were or how you may have treated him. He just wanted you to have the life that he had. He wanted everyone to understand the amazing love that Jesus has for all of us. Because of this love, my dad was married to the same woman, never left us kids and truly led us all in the way of the Lord. In a day and age when men are weak in leading their families in spiritual things, in this area my dad was a champion. He provided in the natural, but never put that above the spiritual. What we have seen in his life was unique and special, but for him it was easy because he loved as Jesus loved him. He would want all of us to live our lives for eternity. To make sure that every moment we live we do it to impact others. Wherever my dad went he made his mark for the positive. If you know Jesus as my dad did, this is an awesome thing because you will see Dale again. As my dad said many times, "Jesus' love is like a coat, put it on and let it warm you and comfort you." Let Jesus into your heart and you will understand why my dad lived his life with purpose, strength and love. He is lovingly survived by his wife, Deborah Nelsen, of Appleton; children: Soren (Jennifer) Nelsen of Appleton; Elizabeth Nelsen of Appleton; grandchildren: Quinn and Titus Nelsen; sister, Kay (Cyrus) Bjerke, and several nieces and nephews. Dale was preceded in death by his daughter, Leah Nelsen, and his brother, Mark Nelsen.
