Annabel Saiz Hanna
1947 – 2017
Obituary

HANNA, ANNABEL SAIZ of Barrington, passed away with her family by her side on May 17, 2017, at the age of 69.

Annabel was beloved by all for her unforgettable warmth, boundless selflessness, and loving spirit. She cast a radiant light of pure love, she opened her heart to all, and she could make a stranger feel like family in a single greeting. Annabel’s legacy is her love and devotion to family, her depthless generosity, and her indomitable optimism and positivity.

Annabel was born November 24, 1947 in New York City, New York, to parents Alfonso and Clissi Saiz and brother Alfonso Saiz Jr. Her early childhood was blissfully spent between Manhattan and Cuba, from where her parents had emigrated. She attended Elizabeth Seton College in Yonkers, New York, where a blind date with a Manhattan College student would forever change her life.

From the moment Annabel and Mark met, it was love at first sight. He was a dark haired Irish boy from rural upstate New York, she was a vibrant blonde city girl, and they couldn’t have been more perfect for each other. Their love story was the likes of which were usually only seen in movies. Annabel & Mark’s devotion to each other for over 50 years is an inspiration to all. The beautiful family they would create is an everlasting reflection of their unique and unwavering love.

They married on June 1, 1968 in Riverdale, New York, and honeymooned road tripping across Europe. In 1970, they welcomed their first child Erik. Their second child, Todd, came in 1974, followed by daughter Erin in 1980, and son Ryan in 1983. In 1985, the family moved from Long Island, New York, to their waterfront dream house in Barrington, Rhode Island, which to this day remains the heart of holidays and family gatherings.

Throughout her life, Annabel was active in the community, supported countless charities, and ran a successful luxury linens business. But little would make her happier than seeing her beloved children find their soul mates and begin their own love stories. The addition of Erik’s wife Roxanne, Todd’s wife Karla, Erin’s husband Khushal, and Ryan’s wife Jessica brought her immeasurable joy, rivaled only by the welcoming of her cherished grandchildren Owen, Gabby, Gavin, Nico, Karoline, and Inez.

Annabel loved life deeply and fully, she wore her beautiful smile everywhere she went, and her unending positivity was legendary. She often and famously proclaimed everything she encountered as “the best ever.” And while everything wasn’t truly worthy of that designation, undoubtedly Annabel herself was. She was the best ever – the best wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and grammy ever.

Calling hours will be Tuesday, May 23rd, 4-8pm, at Perry- McStay Funeral Home, 2555 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence, Rhode Island. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Wednesday, May 24th, 10am, at St. Luke’s Parish, 108 Washington Road, Barrington, Rhode Island. Burial will follow at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery, 550 Wampanoag Trail, East Providence, Rhode Island.

Flowers are welcome at the funeral home or church. Alternatively donations can be made in Annabel’s honor to Special Olympics Rhode Island (www.specialolympicsri.org) or the Women’s Ordination Conference (www.womensordination.org).

Pavlista retires from Panhandle R&E Center

2017 04Apr 07 Pavlista

*** begin quote ***

Alexander Pavlista’s retirement from the faculty of the University of Nebraska Panhandle Research and Extension Center at the end of March marks the end of 50 years of continuous research, 29 of them at the Panhandle Center.

Pavlista knew he wanted to be a scientist at an early age. He was 13 and knew he wanted to do scientific research, 15 when he picked biology, 21 when he chose biomedical research over oceanography. He chose plant physiology, and by age 30 knew he wanted to use science in the service of agriculture.

Born in Praha, Czechoslovakia, he left the country in 1948 when his parents escaped the Communist regime there and migrated to the U.S. Growing up in New York City, he attended Manhattan College, where he received a bachelor’s degree in biology with minors in chemistry and theology.

*** and ***

In retirement, Alex and Victoria will be living in Denver, relaxing with puzzles, games, and reading; staying active by skiing, swimming and walking and writing. He also has been granted emeritus status by the promotion and tenure committee in the UNL Department of Agronomy and Horticulture.

One of Pavlista’s “bucket list” goals is writing a book, tentatively titled “From Plants to God.” The book will outline research in plant sciences that has altered theological concepts of the time.

The book will begin with Aristotle, the philosopher and scientist of ancient Greece, who is credited with the birth of plant physiology. In the first recorded experiment in plant physiology, Aristotle was able to disprove the popular idea that life was produced by ether, some divine force that existed in air.

The book will end with botanist and plant physiologist F.C. Steward, who in the 1950s conducted experiments on carrots to demonstrate that plant cells are totipotent – that they carry the genetic information to enable them to develop into complete, reproducing individual plants. This was a key step in demonstrating the feasibility of cloning, according to Pavlista. ❖

JNEWS: Story about Reynolds. Richard Jr. [MC1967 RIP] found by Kilroy, Jim (MC1968)

Hi John … Kevin is from Academy Street … a Jasper connection …  this story is about his brother Richie (GSS & MC 67) … he was a LT in the USMC … a great guy … I attended his funeral at Good Shepherd … Jim

His long journey to Vietnam nearly over, Kevin Reynolds cupped his hands and scooped sand from a berm near where his 23-year-old brother was killed

http://www.newsday.com/long-island/suffolk/kevin-reynolds-visits-the-spot-in-vietnam-where-his-brother-died-1.13344289

His long journey to Vietnam nearly over, Kevin Reynolds cupped his hands and scooped sand from a berm near where his 23-year-old brother was killed during the war.

Reynolds, 67, had traveled to the village last month, hoping to find the exact spot where Marine 2nd Lt. Richard Reynolds Jr. had died in 1968 and also to bring a small measure of closure to a long and painful family history.

Rudy Molina, a Vietnam veteran and a friend of Richard Reynolds who made the trip, said, “He was just like in a trance or something, in deep thought.”

“We both were quiet,” said Molina, 69, of Coulterville, California. “It was emotional for me, too. It was almost 50 years since this happened, and to be walking in the same spot where his brother was killed and my friend was killed, it was eerie feeling.”

*** and ***

During his trip, Reynolds brought clothing and toys to an orphanage in Da Nang, a city that American troops had used as a giant military base, and whose surrounding area had been devastated by the fighting. He considered it a peace gesture on behalf of his brother.

Finding closure, Kevin Reynolds said, might never be fully possible. But finding the spot where his brother perished brought a connection that had eluded him for the decades since his passing, Reynolds said.

In the emotional moment when he reached the spot where his brother died, Reynolds scooped up the sand, but forgot to bury a scarf he had given his mother before she died in 1993.

“I was finally in an area that had been crisscrossed several times by my brother and his men, and that was satisfying,” Reynolds said of his trip. “This was the finish line for me.”

Good Afternoon All,

 
Please allow me to share with you an incredible journey taken by the Brother (Kevin Reynolds ) of 2nd.Lt. Richard Reynolds Jr. ’67, United States Marine Corps. The story was shared with us by John Reinke who received it from Fellow Jasper, Jim Kilroy ’68. The story is sad, beautiful and uplifting as it talks about a real hero loved, mourned, cherished, respected and never forgotten. One of so many that gave all in Vietnam. We pray for Lt. Reynolds, his Brother, Kevin, his Friend, Jim Kilroy, the Reynolds Family and those so many others who were touched by Lt. Reynolds. His love, grace, sacrifice and spirit live on. Thank you, Kevin, Jim and John. Semper Fi, Richie. God Bless.
