Marilyn Ethel Crane

Posted On September 23rd, 2012 -

MARILYN ETHEL CRANE
Was born on March 22, 1947, to Pat and Violet Mooney in Reno, Nevada. She was the middle child and had an older sister, Marsha Mooney Ward (husband Bob) and a younger brother, Patrick Mooney (wife Helen). Her early childhood was filled with activities including learning to swim at the old Riverside Hotel and pioneering the ski hills of Mount Rose. She attended Our Lady of the Snows Catholic School and showed great spirit, although probably not the spirit that the nuns were looking for! Marilyn and best friend Donna were producers, directors and actors in the Whoater Theater which certainly must have served as a stepping off point for many a thespian career. Donna was also the inspiration for joining ballet where Marilyn usually danced in the chorus or played a tree or a flower while Donna basked in the limelight. Miss Archalee’s whacking stick was never far from Marilyn’s feet which is why chocolate eclairs became more desirable than tutus. Junior high was the beginning of public school education. Marilyn joined the band and was mediocre in playing flute, bass clarinet and baritone sax, but later learned that French horn players have great lips for kissing. Marilyn attended Earl Wooster High School, and along with friend Joan M. became the first mascot, the Wooster colt. Four legs protruding from a rather lumpy body provided great entertainment at the football games. Marilyn went on to attend the University of Nevada Reno on a four year Sarah Fleischman scholarship. Her first masters was in home
economics education and her second masters was in counseling and guidance. Both offered her the opportunity to be a compassionate professional in the school system where she was happiest being of service to others. She married James Crane who later died while serving on active duty. They had a son, James. Marilyn thoroughly enjoyed her time with friends and family. Quite the pleasure seeker, she would quite happily spend hard earned money on a holiday, excellent meal or fine wine. She loved to travel and play golf. She toured Europe with her son, James and later with his new family, Kim, Marcus, Daniel and Branon. Marilyn invariably had a smile, joke, or some whimsical remark at the ready. She truly enjoyed life and checked off an impressive bucket list of things to do before you die. She spent 32 years in the educational system working at University of Nevada, Reno High School, Earl Wooster High School in Reno, St. Andrew’s Priory and Fern Elementary School in Hawaii. In lieu of flowers, donations to : the American Kidney Foundation. Celebration of life service 10 a.m. Thursday (9/27) at Valley of the Temples Chapel; visitation from 9 a.m.

JOHN RICHARD EVANS
July 18, 2012 marked the one year anniversary of the passing of John R. Evans. Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1917, Dad was the epitome of the “greatest generation.” Working at the Ford Motor Co. he earned money to attend Michigan State University and became the first in his family to attend college earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering.
As the U.S. was drawn into WWII he enlisted as an officer and served as a flight engineer on a B-29 bomber. He devoted countless hours in overseeing the maintenance and operation of the aircraft and took great pride in ensuring that his crew of the “Untouchable” made it home safety.
At the conclusion of the war he returned to Michigan State to complete his Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering and met our Mom, Phyllis Hamborsky. In 1947 Dad was offered a faculty position at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa to help build the fledgling engineering department and he served as a Professor of Civil Engineering for 34 years retiring in 1981 with Professor Emeritus status.
With the passing of our Mom in 1996, Dad moved to Sun City, AZ and reunited with the “girl next door” from his Detroit neighborhood and his date to the senior prom, Peggy Campbell. They were married and he lived out the rest of his life surrounded by her love, friends, and caring staff at the Royal Oaks Retirement Community.
He was laid to rest on August 15, 2011 on his 94th birthday along with our Mom at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific with full military honors. He is survived by his wife Peggy, sons Michael, Richard (Susan), David (Renee) and two granddaughters, Candice and Monique. Condolences to davee@hawaii.edu
