Genevieve Gutfleisch started life as a Stone.  Her daughter became a Sprinkle.  
One of her grandchildren is a Buffy.  It was a bad week for Germans; five out 
of twelve obits today were from families of German origin: Katherine Shoemaker, 
née Hammerbeck, Judith Leckman, Lorene Kleiboeker Buescher and George Schwary.  

Lucille Pollock started out as a Powell.  Age 100, she died twelve days after 
her husband of 70 years.  They lived in their house until age 97.

There's an Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Ill.  Kathryn Oliver, who 
is survived by great-nieces and nephews, Brody, Maddy, Jaymy and Graycy 
graduated from there.  They do dessert theater:
