Anne GraemeMoore Weitz

 

ANNE GRAEME MOORE WEITZ (1921 - 2017)
(July 14, 1921–May 7, 2017) 95, of Rocky River, OH died peacefully on May 7 in Willowbrook, IL, after a short illness, during which her three (3) adoring children were at her side. Anne was born in Lewisburg, WV as the oldest of three children to her parents, Joe and Margaret. Anne had dogs, cats, & a horse "Patsy" to ride on their 40-acres on which they had livestock to graze. Here, Anne also formed lifetime interests in gardening and art (painting), perhaps inspired by the pastoral scenes around her. In her Greenbrier College for Women class, Anne won the academic award as the top student. She then transferred to UNC where she majored in art, was a member of Pi Beta Phi Sorority, and graduated (BA) in 1943. A year later, Anne's family suffered the tragic loss of her brother, Joseph Jr. ("Ian"), who gave his life for his nation in France in WWII. Anne's surviving sibling (sister) Pam is a pediatric doctor. After college, Anne worked drawing maps for the US government in DC, where she met and dated John Weitz of Cleveland, the love of her life! Before long, she was engaged then married John in late 1945 in WV. She and John moved to PA where he taught Geology at Lehigh for 6 years, and Anne gave birth to Susan. Soon the family would get up again and move to OH, as John secured a job for better pay in the family explosives business in OH. In Bay Village, Anne gave birth to Margaret and son John, Jr. Anne and family then moved to Rocky River, where with John she lovingly raised their family, while supporting the kids' growth, health, schools, activities, sports, and well-being. The children went off to college, jobs, marriage, children, repeating the great life-cycle traditions, while always returning to visit. Besides being a fine artist and painter, Anne actively supported the fine arts, volunteering, and selling works at Bay Arts (formerly Bay Crafters) in Huntington Park, Bay Village, OH for decades. Anne also enjoyed gardening, golfing, traveling, relaxing with a good book, magazine, or the TV, she and John also enjoyed spectator sports, concerts, plays and musicals, beach picnics, entertaining friends, visiting family next door or across town. John sold the company in the late 1980s and a long and happy retirement began as love-birds Anne with John also became snow-birds, alternating between golf on the north coast and gulf coast (where Anne savored a hole-in-one on a par 3!), enjoying seeing kids, grandkids, and great-grandkids grow, entertaining friends and family while living off their wise investments for a fulfilling retirement. Through their lives, Anne and John were like newlyweds, her classiness, love, patience, and wisdom, while John remained truly in love selflessly doing whatever Anne needed. It is with great sorrow we announce the loss of Anne, an extraordinary woman whom we think of every day: She lived her life consistent with her beliefs in loyalty, civility, golden rule, freedom, patriotism, and kindness, and it is with pride and love that we celebrate her life. Anne will be laid to rest with her devoted husband of 68 years, John (deceased 2013) in Lakewood Park Cemetery, near where Anne and John lived when not wintering in FL. She was also preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Margaret, brother Joseph Jr., and granddaughter Cynthia Pickering. Anne's loving survivors include her sister, Pamela (FL); her 3 children Susan (MO), Margaret (David, IL), and John Jr. (Gail, NJ), 7 grandchildren Tiffany (Brian, NH), Megan (GA), Ian (Amy), Joshua (Heather), Graeme (Derek, AK), Erica (FL), and 7 great-grandchildren Sabrina (NH), Grace (NH), Natalie (GA), Olivia (GA), Eva (AK), Jackson (AK) and Leonard (MA), loving in-law Jean (CO), nieces Sally Michie and husband Rex (TX), Phoebe (CO), nephew Leonard and wife Maureen (CO) and grand-nephew Michael Weitz and Lyla (CO). Please come and be with family and friends at the memorial service in the sanctuary at Rocky River Presbyterian Church at 21750 Detroit Rd., Rocky River, OH 44116 on Saturday, May 27 at 3:30 P.M. Contributions can be made in her memory to Bay Arts, various Alzheimer research organizations, Heartland Hospice, or charities of your choice. Please feel free to share your thoughts with family via Johnw@ancoenv.com.

Fredrik Eric Nelson

1947
 

Fredrik Nelson Sr. Fredrik Eric Nelson Sr., 87, of Charleston, died Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017. Born January 13, 1930, in Charleston, Eric was the youngest of four children of Oscar Nelson Sr. and Harriet Isabelle Engstrom Nelson.

Eric was a lifelong resident of Charleston. He was a graduate of Greenbrier Military School in Lewisburg and later earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania. He attended Washington & Lee University Law School prior to being drafted into the Army, where he graduated from leadership and armed forces information school serving the 5th infantry division during the Korean War. He later graduated from the Reppert School of Auctioneering, Decatur, Ind., and was active in various charity auctions, including many FFA events, from the late 1960s through 1980s.Eric's business and professional career expanded a number of industries.

He began his career working for the American Hereford Journal in Kansas City, Mo., and then moved to a supervisory position in advertising and public relations with the Atlantic Greyhound Corporation in Charleston. He later was a leading salesman for United Carbon Company, a Charleston, W.Va., based Company headed by his father Oscar Nelson Sr., a Swedish immigrant. United Carbon was a producer of natural gas and oil and a leading producer of carbon black, a primary ingredient used in the rubber industry, until the company was sold to Ashland Oil. In 1959, Eric and his brother, Tom, co-founded Nelson & Company, one of the first private investment counseling companies in West Vriginia. Eric also formed various diversified investment companies concentrating in the real estate, natural gas, and oil sectors.

Eric's community and organization activities included: member of the West Virginia House of Delegates from 1967-1971; past president of the Charleston WV Lions Club; past president of the Navy League of WV; past potentate of the Beni Kedem Shrine Temple, Charleston, W.Va.; former member of Berry Hills and Edgewood Country Clubs, where he enjoyed working wonders with his "ping" putter; member of Kanawha Lodge No. 20; member of the Kanawha Commander No 4 Knights Templar; a 32nd degree member of the Scottish Rite of Freemason; past director of the Royal Order of Jesters Charleston Court No. 111, and founding director of the former South Hills Bank, Charleston, until it was acquired by Wesbanco Inc, Wheeling, W.Va., where he served as Director and member of the executive committee.One of the Nelson family's great loves and interest was Morlunda Farms located in Lewisburg, W.Va. The Farm was founded by his late father, and named after the town where he was born in Sweden. Morlunda Farms grew into a nationally renowned purebred Polled Hereford operation, showing cattle from coast to coast, with many awards and recognitions. Eric and his late brothers and sister continued the traditions well after their father had passed.

Eric is a former member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church and most recently St. Timothy's Lutheran Church, both in Charleston. Eric so loved life and dearly missed his loving wife of 46 years, Ann, who preceded him in death in 2005. Eric loved to travel and enjoyed the frequent family cruise trips since Ann's passing. Many fond memories were enjoyed by all. Eric has been a resident of Edgewood Summit since 2007. Our family truly wishes to thank the many friends he made and especially the ever caring staff. We were most fortunate for the helping oversight provided by Teresa Walker and Whitney Brester.

In addition to his parents and wife, Ann Cabell Patrick Nelson, Eric was preceded in death by his siblings Anna Marie Nelson Jones of Charleston, Oscar Nelson Jr. of Lewisburg, and Thomas A. Nelson of Charleston and Naples, Fla. He is survived by his children, Eric Jr. (Pam), of Charleston and their children Heather, Tripp and Sydney; Mary Elizabeth Barnes (Robert), of Richmond, Va., and their children Bo and Anna Marie; and William (Megan) of New Orleans, La., and their children Callie and Connor.

Charlie was born in tiny Buffalo, Putnam County, West Virginia, on the Kanawha River. His parents were Charles Edward Stokes Sr., a local grocery store owner, and Celestine Werner Stokes.

Charlie attended local schools until going to Greenbrier Military School (GMS) where he became known as “SAM”. He was knocked out (brain concussion) in a football game and woke up with temporary amnesia. He didn’t know where he was or who he was, so they started calling him “Sam” and it stuck. Sam did well in the three years he was at GMS. He was a wrestling champion from Band Company. Sam worked his way up to become one of the 16 Cadet Officers in the school and Executive Officer of the Band Company in his Senior Year. Sam graduated from GMS in 1956. He returned for a year of Post Graduate work in 1957 and commanded the Band Company with the rank of Cadet Captain.

Charlie went to West Virginia State College (University now), at Institute, WV, where he graduated with a BA Degree in Mathematics (Minors in English Literature and ROTC) and was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the Army through the Reserve Officer Training Program (ROTC). Little did anyone know then that Colonel Charles E. Stokes Jr. would be one of West Virginia State University’s most distinguished graduates and would inducted him into their Hall of Fame in 1984. Colonel Stokes was even invited to present the Awards Day address, which he did.

Charlie’s education continued while in the Army. He got into the Intelligence Corps and kept improving his education. He went to numerous service schools (Ranger, Airborne, Jungle Warfare, Master Parachutist, and more). Actually they are too numerous to mention them all, but important ones included the Army Command & General Staff College, Senior Service College, The Foreign Service Institute, and he earned his double major Masters Degree from Louisiana State University in Political Science & History. He would later use his education and experience to actually teach others at several Universities and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, NY.

Charlie became an Intelligence Officer in the Army and was on the way to becoming a true American Hero. He started by working in the area of the most dangerous time in the history of the world, the Cuban Missile Crisis, which took place in late 1962.

Charlie continued to advance in rank and responsibility. Charlie’s Army career after the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, included hunting Che Guevara in South America, Caribbean Ops including the Dominican Republic/Haiti Conflict, Special Ops in Viet Nam where he was injured in combat, Central America and the conflict between Honduras and El Salvador, and later the Korean DMZ.

After combat assignments, Major Charlie was called to teach at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, NY. He was Principal for Latin American studies because of his double major Masters in Political Science and History, plus he spoke fluent Spanish. After West Point, Charlie was an Adjunct Professor in the History Department at his Alma Mater, West Virginia State University, Institute, WV.

Charlie was promoted to full Colonel (Officer Paygrade O-6) in mid-1983. He served as Defense Attache in the Guatemalan Embassy. In mid-1983, Charlie was assigned to be Deputy Commander, Special Warfare Center & School, Ft. Bragg, NC. His job was to oversee the curricula for all Army Special Operations Forces with emphasis on using Special Ops in the global war against terrorism.

Charlie earned many medals and awards, too numerous to mention. Foremost among then were the Legion of Merit for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services and achievements. Next is the Bronze Star with “V” device for valor and bravery in combat. Charlie has also earned the Purple Heart for being wounded in combat. In 1984, Charlie was inducted into the Hall of Fame at West Virginia State University, and was inducted into the Greenbrier Military School Alumni Association Hall of Fame. His long and distinguished military career ended in early 1987 after a total of 32 years in the U.S. Army (including his three years of ROTC at Greenbrier Military School.

Charlie is survived by his wife, Rosnani (Rose) Stokes, his son, Danny Stokes of Tacoma, WA, daughter, Camela Noonan of Fayetteville, NC, and sister, Ruth Ann Riffee of Jacksonville, FL, and six Grandchildren.
