Following high school, Stoney provided for his family by working as a truck driver for 35 years. For the last 20 years, you could usually find Stoney at a casino. He loved the slot machines! And, on occasion, they loved him back. Stoney was a man with a tough exterior and a huge heart. If you ever needed anything, Stoney was there. "He would give you the shirt off his back." His friends and family will always remember his mischievous crooked grin and chuckling laugh. Stoney was preceded in death by his first wife, Joyce Simas Stoneburner.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to The American Cancer Society. The Stoneburner family would like to express their appreciation and gratitude to all for the outpouring of love and care they have received.

1957 - Suzie Price Sherburne - (5/26/20111) - DEERFIELD - Suzanne "Suzie" (Price) Sherburne, 72, died Thursday, May 26, 2011, at the family home in Deerfield after living gracefully and courageously with cancer for six years.
Suzie was born in Hampton, Va., May 19, 1939, to Harry and Vivian (Richardson) Price. She was a graduate of Wakefield High School, Class of 1957, Arlington, Va. From 1957 to 1963, Suzie worked as a secretary at the Pentagon, where she met and became engaged to Lieutenant Col. John (Jack) L. Sherburne. After marrying in 1962, they spent their early years together stationed in Virginia, Alabama, and Brazil. After moving to Deerfield in 1970, Suzie became active in town activities and began volunteering for the Fire Department auxiliary, worked at the town voting polls, and other organizations. In between all of these volunteer activities, Suzie and her mother Vivian managed much of the livestock on the farm, taking great joy in the birth of the baby lambs. For ten years she worked as the Deerfield Community School Coordinator, energetically bringing together volunteers and students for educational and recreational endeavors. She was a founding member of the Forum of Citizens Uniting the School (FOCUS) and was integral to the startup of The Communicator, a monthly newsletter for school and town matters. In 1996, FOCUS inaugurated the Sherburne Award, given the first year to Suzie and presented annually thereafter to Deerfield residents who contribute significantly to the life of the town and inspire others to be community minded. In 1987 until 2000 she worked at the local branch of the U.S. Postal Service, where her warmth and friendliness proved to be an asset.
Suzie was a beloved member of Deerfield Community Church, which she joined in 1971. For many years, she was the prayer chain liaison and Called-to-Care outreach coordinator. She also served as a deacon, church school teacher, fair booth committee member, Ladies Aid auxiliary, and sang in the choir. Suzie was on the church staff as administrative assistant from 2002 to 2005.
Suzie's caring nature, genuine interest in people, and love of church and community combined to make her an important hub of the town. Lightheartedly, many called her the "Queen of Deerfield." Even during the course of cancer treatments, she always found time and energy to inquire about others and to extend her own kindness and concern. An excellent cook, a recreational walker, and a woman with deep appreciation of nature, she treasured her family and was a wonderful friend.
Suzie is survived by her husband Jack Sherburne of Deerfield; sons John Scott and Thomas Sherburne; daughter Jennifer Sherburne and her husband Matthew Keegan; stepson Mark Sherburne and his wife Amy; and grandchildren Alissa, Sarah, Trevor, Eliza, Henry, and Vivian. She is also survived by her sister Martha Solomon; brother Harry Price and his wife Alice; and her brother-in-law Jim Willcock.
A service will be held Saturday, June 11 at 9 a.m., in the sanctuary of Deerfield Community Church, UCC in Deefield, 15 Church Street (formerly 11 Old Center Road), with the Rev. Carol Meredith officiating. A reception will immediately follow in the parish hall.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Deerfield Community Church, P.O. Box 420, Deerfield, NH 03037.

Subsequently, she worked as a subject cataloguer (law) and reference assistant at the Library of Congress.

She was president and chairman of the board of directors of the Potomac Plaza Terraces co-op from 1989 to 1990; in 1983-84, she had served as vice president. She served as a member of the steering committee of the D.C. Cooperative Housing Coalition in the 1980s.

1958 - Alan M Corwin - (7/22/2014) - Alan Corwin, a former Thurston County Public Utility District commissioner known for his financial expertise, has died. He was 74. Corwin died last week in Portland from stroke-related complications, former commission colleague Jim Lazar said Sunday. Lazar filled an interim role on the commission about two years ago and worked closely with Corwin and fellow commissioner Chris Stearns. “Alan was a very dedicated guy,” said Lazar, adding that his financial expertise was phenomenally valuable to the PUD, a water utility. “He really had some skills that were critical for the commission as they acquired small water systems.” Corwin brought his understanding of finance to the commission, while Stearns understood water quality issues and Lazar contributed his knowledge of utilities. “We had a good set of skills for a small organization,” Lazar said. About Corwin, he added: “He was a close personal friend, and I’m going to miss him terribly.” Stearns, too, remembered Corwin for his financial skills, saying he helped the PUD find more affordable insurance, worked heavily on a bond issue and always did what he thought was best for the PUD in the long run. “He showed a lot of loyalty to the organization because he believed in it,” Stearns said. Funeral details are private at Corwin’srequest, daughter Amy Corwin said Sunday.

Corwin was elected to the PUD commission in 2004 and was re-elected in 2010. Commissioners serve six-year terms, but in 2012, following the PUD’s highly publicized exploration into offering public power — Proposition 1 was defeated in the general election that year — Corwin resigned. Before he became PUD commissioner, Corwin was a longtime Dean Witter financial adviser. Earlier in life, Corwin was a management analyst for the Bonneville Power Administration in Portland.

1958 - Judith Hill Rothrock - (10/19/2011) - MOUNT DESERT - On Oct. 19, 2011, the light from a star that guided so many towards kindness and peace went dark. Judith Hill Rothrock, 71, passed away leaving a legacy of social action and service. That she was so loved by so many gives her family comfort in the wake of our profound loss. Her commitment to living sustainably in cherished harmony with the community she loved so dearly on Mount Desert Island has been a treasured gift and inspiration for all of us. Words cannot truly give meaning to a life lived so beautifully. Those who were touched by the gentle strength of Judy's spirit miss you dearly. Judy was the beloved daughter of James E. Hill and Gertrude Hill; and beloved sister of J.B. Hill. She is survived by her sisters, Kathleen Allan and Karen Hill; her devoted daughter, Kristen Goodrich and her husband, Jake Goodrich; her granddaughter, Devyn Drusjack and Devyn's father, Greg Drusjack; her devoted son, Stephen Rothrock and his partner, Kristianne Kirkman; her granddaughter, Grace Connor; and by her niece, Danika Tyminski. Judy was a compassionate and gifted social worker whose career spanned more than three decades treating families at Community YMCA Counseling and Social Services, Matawan, N.J. She served hundreds of clients, but was best known for her work with Vietnam veterans who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. She retired to her cabin on Mount Desert Island and spent her remaining years in service to the community she so loved with particular dedication to Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth. She was a volunteer at Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry and Acadia Senior College, Mount Desert Island, where she continued to further her awareness of social justice and philosophy. Always inspired by the pursuit of healing those in need and giving of her time and wisdom to those she loved - Judy made this world a kinder and gentler place for us all. We will be holding a memorial service for Judy 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth, 121 Bucksport Road, Ellsworth. We ask in lieu of flowers, that donations be made to Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth in memory of her commitment to the community she so adored, or Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry, 119 Bucksport Road, Ellsworth, ME 04605, in memory of an amazing life always dedicated to serving that community. She believed the highest calling is to give back more than you take from this world. Judy, your generosity truly served as a beacon of hope in the potential of humanity to love one another with dignity and compassion.

1958 - Miles W Sandin - (4/16/2017) - We rejoice in the Home Going of Miles William Sandin into the arms of Jesus on Resurrection Sunday, April 16th, 2017. His address has changed from Bridgewater VA to Heaven. Although he anticipated The Rapture, God in His Infinite wisdom chose to delay its arrival.
Miles was born in Washington D.C. on Mother’s Day, May 12th, 1940. He was a son of Gustave Bertil Sandin and Maude Whitehurst Sandin. He is survived by his bride, Evelyn Kaye Miller Sandin, with whom he was married on May 26th, 1963; his son Randall Miles Sandin, daughter-in-law Allison Rogers Sandin and his cherished granddaughters Amelia Ruth Sandin and Rosalee Grace Sandin, all of Charleston, SC; his brother Bruce Martin Sandin and wife Fain of Standardsville, VA; sisters-in-law Donna H. Sandin of Winchester, VA and Shirley S. Miller of Dayton, VA; and many special nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Robert Bertil Sandin and sister Carolyn Irene Sandin.
Miles graduated from Wakefield High School in Arlington, VA and from Bridgewater College. At Bridgewater College, he earned degrees in mathematics and physics and during his time at Bridgewater he met his future bride.
Career-wise, in 1963 he became a Research Assistant at The Ballistics Analysis Laboratory of The Johns Hopkins University. In 1967, he became the first Manager of The C. E. Shull Computing Center at Bridgewater College. He, along with Professor John White, took the college into the era of “the stored program” computer. In 1970, he became President of Innovative Management Systems, Inc., in Staunton, VA. In 1989, he became a Senior Software Engineer at ComSonics, Inc., in Harrisonburg, VA and finished his career as the President of Sheltie Systems, Inc., in Bridgewater, VA.
His Christianity was most important to him and his interest grew as he aged. His principal Christian mentors were the following:
His sister, Carolyn Sandin, who was confined to an iron lung due to polio. Her faith and acceptance of Jesus as her personal savior was an inspiration to all.
His sister-in-law, Eleanor Gene Miller, with whom he shared many wonderful conversations and experiences…and is doing so again today.
His friend, Hiram M. Knopp, with whom he worked with for 30+ years and was instrumental in opening his eyes, heart and mind to the true meaning of the Scriptures.
In his lifetime he was associated with just 3 churches: The First Baptist Church of Clarendon (Arlington, VA); Beaver Creek Church of the Brethren (Bridgewater, VA) & Horizon Christian Fellowship (Harrisonburg, VA).
Miles professed and accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior. He repented for all his sins; past, present and future. His wish for all his family, friends and relatives is to do likewise. As such a Christian, he knew that he would spend eternity in the company of God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. Rejoice!
Visitation will be Friday, April 21st from 6:30-8:00pm at Johnson Funeral Service, Inc. in Bridgewater, VA. A Graveside Service will be held at 10am on Saturday, April 22nd at Beaver Creek Church of the Brethren cemetery followed by a Memorial Service at 11am at Montezuma Church of the Brethren. The family will receive guests from 12pm-3pm at Clearspring Homestead following the memorial service.
In lieu of flowers, any memorial contributions can be made to Miles' church below…they do mission work around the world and Miles would have loved to have gone but was a little past his time to do so. Horizon Christian Fellowship, PO Box 2038, Harrisonburg, VA 22801. Please write in the memo - "Missions for Miles."

1959 - Rita Bergner Terry - (12/25/2010) - Rita Bergner Terry passed away on Christmas Day in Columbia after suffering a severe stroke. She resided in Columbia, Missouri for 36 years. She was born in Madison, WI on April 22, 1942. She lived briefly during WWII in Boston, MA, where her father served in the Navy. After the war, her family moved to Arlington, VA, where she attended school, graduating from Wakefield High School in June 1959. She graduated from Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA, and was a member of the Phi Mu Sorority. Following graduation, she worked for the National Geographic Society in Washington, DC, where she met her husband, Arthur Terry. With their daughter Lynne, they lived for several years in Rochester, NY, and then moved to Missouri after a faculty appointment for her husband at the University of Missouri. She would often joke with friends from the East that living in MO was not something she would have planned, since before she moved here, she thought Missouri was flat—until she saw how the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers had created bluffs and hills, and she became to love this state.

In Columbia she worked as a Writer Editor/Librarian for the Climate Applications Branch of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA/NESDIS) for 17 years. During this period she also received a master’s degree in Library Science for the University of Missouri. Visitors from all over the world came to learn techniques for using data from the weather satellites in crop indices to plan for food shortages in developing countries. The indices could not quantify production but could qualify the current season as a good or bad year. She later worked at the University Hospital as an editor and completed her professional career at the Harry S. Truman Veteran’s Administration Hospital.

After retirement from the Federal Civil Service, she enjoyed volunteering at the Missouri State Historical Society and the Central Missouri Humane Society, singing in her church choir and in Columbia Chorale (a community chorus), gardening, reading, needlework and feeding the birds and deer that visited her yard. Rita remained active in the Midway Locust Grove Methodist Church and the United Methodist Women. She enjoyed cooking and was noted for her good food and confections. In the last year she had enjoyed extensive travel, and had just returned from London. She is survived by her daughter, Lynne Hooper, of Hartsburg, MO, and numerous friends.

She met David Sliney at her 50th reunion, and that led to a very close relationship; and they travelled extensively in the last year. They had just returned from London when she suffered a stroke.

1959 - Micheal Cole - - We are saddened to share the news that our dear friend and colleague of many years, Michael F. Cole, passed away on May 17, 2014. Michael will be greatly missed by all of us at Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C ©), where he worked for the past 14 years. Michael's devotion to legal scholarship, relentless good cheer, passion for his family, and encyclopedic understanding of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have made an indelible mark on all of us at B&C and he will be missed greatly.

Michael was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Vanderbilt University, and a Root-Tilden Scholar graduate of New York University Law School. Michael was drawn to an FDA practice early in his distinguished career. He served as a lawyer with Johnson & Johnson, was Vice President and General Counsel at the Health Industry Manufacturers Association, and was elevated to partner status at two law firms, Paul, Hastings, Janofski & Walker and McDermott, Will & Emery.

In all of his professional affiliations, Michael comported himself with the utmost dignity, legal excellence, and tireless devotion to clients and their needs. When he was not working, which he loved to do, Michael could be spotted reading a book over lunch or coffee (Michael was a voracious reader), sharing photos of his sons and adorable grandchildren, or regaling us with tales of his most recent golf outing, which he loved.

In the finest traditions of the legal profession, Michael was a gifted teacher and loved to share his knowledge, work ethic, and passion for the law with junior lawyers and other professionals in the firm. Michael never tired of tackling new legal issues as the food and drug law matured, and was uniquely gifted in identifying novel ways of looking at fact patterns and eliciting ingenious legal theories to resolve challenges. Michael was a lawyer's lawyer to the end.

All of us at B&C have greatly appreciated the opportunity of working with Michael, sharing in his love of the practice of law, and have been honored all these years to call him our colleague and friend. He will be missed, and never forgotten.

1959 - George William Funkhouser - (4/14/1993)

Billy Funkhouser was one of a kind. He was always laughing and joking around and having a good time. Bill died in 1993 from a heart problem. When the 1959 baseball was electing the co captains, Billy organized a write in votes for Mickey Mouse and Mort Irwin was none too happy when he counted the ballots. But that was Billy and in spite of that, he was one of the co captains. He could pitch and play any other baseball position. He and I were in junior college together. I remember Billy threw eleven straight innings of no hit baseball, over a two game period. Bill went on to pitch at Shepherd College and graduated in 1963. He then was a Marine officer and served in Vietnam. Later Billy coached baseball at a couple of high schools in Fairfax County. He may not have won many championships, but his players loved playing for him. That to me is an ultimate compliment. To Billy, you were always his friend. When our paths crossed we would talk about being together and some of the things we did in college. Most of those stories can be told in the setting. – Classmate Tom Hawkins

1959 - John Edward "Jack" Germas - (3/24/1979) - Here is a brief note on my friend Jack Germas whose picture has been on my office wall for years and died in 1979.

A few months after graduation, and after saving a few bucks, Jack set off in a surplus WWII jeep with Frank French and myself for several months travel through Central and South America.

1959 - Tom Michel - - Larger than life legend Tom Michel passes

Tom Michel, died on Monday. A member of the school's sports Hall of Fame, Michel played for the Pirates from 1960-63. The photo is from the Sept. 21, 1963, game program,for the East Carolina-Wake Forest match-up that christened Ficklen Stadium.

By Ron Cherubini - Staff reports and an ECU Athletics release contributed to this article.

If you were anywhere near what was then East Carolina College in 1963, you know or have heard of Tom Michel. That year in Pirate lore belonged to the Goliath-like fullback that made the Clarence Stasavich Single Wing fly.

On Monday, the Pirate community lost another great warrior when William Thomas Michel passed away.

“Oh, my… I am stunned,” former Pirates coach and administrator Dr. Henry VanSant said. “Tom has got to be one of the greatest fullbacks to ever play at East Carolina, no question about it. He was a hard player and a good person and good friend. He really loved the game and being around it."

Read the ECU news release announcing Michel's passing.

To his coaches, Michel was a pioneer, a bold example of a truly elite player choosing to blaze his trail in the dawn of a new era for East Carolina's then-fledgling but ambitious program.

“Fair to say, he was one of the first really great football players at ECU,” VanSant said. “We had some earlier, of course, guys like James Speight and Glenn Bass, but Tom was one of the very first NFL football players that we had from East Carolina.”

To his teammates, particularly the underclassmen, he was a player to take note of.

“Yes, he was larger than life to some of us,” backfield mate Jerry Tolley recalled of his former teammate. “I remember when I was a true freshman, I was there with all the other freshmen and Tom looked like a big offensive tackle to me and I remarked to someone they have some big linemen here and he said, ‘No Jerry, he is our fullback.’

“I remember when I was a freshman and not dressing out, we played against Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Greenville and I remember from my viewpoint, Tom had such an outstanding game. I remember it because I wrote my first college English paper on Tom Michel and the game he had that evening. He was so big and fast.”

Michel came to East Carolina from Arlington, VA, and was an outstanding tailback in Jack Boone’s offense in 1960-61 and then starred for Clarence Stasavich in 1962-63.

It was ’63, however, when he led the team with 830 yards rushing, paving the way for a 9-1 season, culminating in a 27-6 win over Northeastern in the Eastern Bowl, played in Allentown, PA. In that game, Michel scored the game’s first touchdown on a 15-yard carry and then scored again on an 82-yard run off a fake lateral.

Just two points separated that 1963 team from a perfect season.

Michel was part of so many Pirates firsts, including the team’s first Bowl victory in that 1963 season. He was also the first player to score a touchdown in Ficklen Stadium.

He was a leader on the first team to beat an Atlantic Coast Conference foe, which happened to be in the Pirates' first game against an ACC school — which happened to be played in the first game in the then-new Ficklen Stadium.

In that Sept. 21, 1963 game, Michel piled up 120 yards in a 20-10 victory over Wake Forest — which featured a player of its own destined for fame by the name of Brian Piccolo — in front of 17,000 galvanized Pirates fans.

Michel garnered a Little All-America nomination as well as a place on the coveted all-State team that year.

“I never think of Tom without thinking of him in that Ficklen Dedication Game against Wake Forest,” VanSant said. “He scored all three touchdowns that game.

“Tom was more on the quiet side. He just wasn’t a rah-rah type of guy, but when you gave Tom Michel the ball and he broke the line of scrimmage, it was all over.”

While he was a star on the gridiron, Michel also left his mark on the Pirates track program, piling up five medals at the NAIA Championships in 1962, including one in the 100 yard dash, an event in which Michel regularly clocked 9.6's.

His stature belied the fierce competitor and gifted talent he was.

“Tom was funny because he looked like a pulling guard,” VanSant recalled. “He was a little round… a little pudgy, not the long lean type, but he was 6-0 tall and he could fly.”

A superior talent coming out of ECU, Michel established another Pirate milestone when he was the first drafted in 1964 by the Oakland Raiders (19th round) in the AFL draft and the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL draft (14th round). He chose the Vikings, where he went on to play for legendary coach Norm VanBrocklin. There, Michel excelled right out of the gate as a regular with the Vikings, but he eventually saw his career shortened by injuries incurred during that first season.

He went on to be inducted in the East Carolina University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1978.

Michel married his college sweetheart, the former Jean Crain — niece of Harold Crain, co-owner of the Durham company that built Ficklen Stadium. Michel once lovingly retold the story of how he met his Jean, saying, "I met my wife in the cafeteria at East Carolina and she beat me in a food fight."

He would later get to enjoy the East Carolina football experience all over again when his son, Billy, suited up for the Pirates from 1986-88. The younger Michel had a stellar career in the trenches for the Pirates, playing offensive line.

With so much invested in Greenville in his life, Michel remained in the community, close to his alma mater, working for the U.S. Postal Service for 33 years before recently retiring.

Indeed, on Monday, a great Pirate legend died.

“He was one of my (Pirate) heroes when he I got there,” Tolley recalled. “Tom was the epitome of what an East Carolina player was and should be.”

According to the obituary in the Greenville Daily Reflector, a private family service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the East Carolina University Educational Foundation, 304 Ward Sports Medicine Building, Greenville, NC 27858; or the American Diabetes Association, P.O. Box 1131, Fairfax, VA 22038-1131.

1959 - James A Payne - - They life-flighted Jim downtown to Methodist Hospital Sunday afternoon, and the subsequent diagnosis was a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. The same top medical team that operated on him last April was waiting for him, and they took him straight into surgery where they found extensive damage and complications we didn’t know about. They believe that he also suffered a heart attack during the ER time at NorthWest Houston Methodist Hospital. The surgeon performed a 4.5 hour surgery to get him stabilized, and in the next 12 hours they took him back to surgery two more times. They got him into the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit but his condition continued to deteriorate until it was apparent there was nothing they could do to save him. They disconnected life support late Monday afternoon and he died within minutes. Please forgive this ‘group’ message, but he would want you to know about his passing. - Barbara Payne

Will of Seal Beach, CA; brother Robert K. Salyers, of Louisville, KY; and sister Martha J. Salyers, of Ashville, NC.

Abigail began at Illinois in 1978 after an undergraduate degree in Mathematics (Phi Beta Kappa) in 1963 and a Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics in 1969 from George Washington University, Washington, D.C. After four years of teaching, research and tenure at St. Mary’s College in Maryland she switched fields by taking courses in Biochemistry and Microbiology and secured a second post-doctorate position in Biochemistry and Microbiology from Virginia Polytechnical Institute. She studied, taught and did research at VPI from 1973 to 1978.

She became the first female tenured professor in Microbiology at Illinois in 1983 and a full professor in 1988. While at Illinois, Abigail was named a University Scholar, Faculty Member of the Year in the College of Medicine, a Member of the Center for Advanced Study and an Affiliate in the Institute for Genomic Biology. She received the Pasteur Award for Research and Teaching, the All-Campus Award for Excellence in Teaching in the University of Illinois Medical School and the Golden Apple Award for Medical School Teaching on three occasions. She was named the G.William Arends Professor in Molecular and Cellular Biology from 2004 until she retired in 2012.

Among the books she authored are Bacterial Pathogenesis: A Molecular Approach, (by A. A. Salyers and Dixie Witt) first published in 1994 and now in its Third Edition. Bacterial Resistance to Antimicrobials, (by A.A. Salyers and co-authors) first published in 2002 and is now in its Second Edition. Revenge of the Microbes, (by A.A. Salyers and D. Witt) was published by 2005. It was a popular treatment of the latest scientific information in the fields of microbial pathegenesis and antibiotic resistance. It was intended for a broad audience.

Abigail was assisted in her research and publications by Research Associates Nadja B. Shoemaker, Gui Wang and over 30 Graduate Students working on their Ph.D.s and Masters Degrees in Microbiology at Illinois.

She was Co-Director of the Microbial Diversity Summer Course at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA for the summers of 1995-1999. Abigail and her co-director, Ed Ledbetter, modernized the course. The course was extremely popular and attracted graduate students and even university faculty members with a wide range of backgrounds from all over the world. Students performed field work to enrich for and to islolate a diverse array of microorganisms. They also used state of the art laboratory technology to study the biochemistry and genetics of the microorganisms they isolated from the field.

Abigail was a committed teacher and taught classes in both Liberal Arts and Sciences and in the Medical School at the University of Illinois. She was awarded the 2009 National Graduate Teacher Award in Microbiology. She was also committed to educating the public. For example, she met with local postal workers to educate them about the risks of anthrax during the alarm in 2001.

When asked about her own most influential teacher in an interview at an ASM meeting, Abigail surprised her radio questioner by saying it was a Wakefield High School (Arlington, Va.) English teacher. Mrs. Baker kept Abigail from being kicked out of school for being pregnant and helped her get into college. At that time, pregnant teenage girls were not often accepted by college administrators.

Memorials may be directed to the Development Office at the Marine Biological Laboratory, 7 MBL Street, Woods Hole, MA 02543 to establish an endowed lectureship or student scholarship for the Microbial Diversity Course in her name.
