SINGLETON, Lyda Pearl Russell passed away on July 31, 2007. She was the daughter of the late Bertha Peyton Russell and Conrad Carpenter Russell and the widow of Claude Lee Singleton. She was the mother of Joanne Singleton Green of Danville and grandmother of Larry Lee Green of San Francisco, Calif. Lyda was born on Feb. 21, 1912, in Moreland, Ky. She attended school in Moreland, where she was an outstanding student and excelled in girls’ basketball, leading her team to the state tournament in 1930 and being named to the all regional team for her outstanding performance as her team’s center. Lyda attended business college in Louisville for one year and had many adventures including her first airplane flight, which was with a barnstormer during an air show. The hardships of the Great Depression brought her back to Moreland where she soon met her husband-to-be, Claude. She spent the next decades as a loving and wonderful daughter, wife, mother and grandmother. Lyda took special pride in the accomplishments of her daughter and grandson. In her later years she took many trips with her daughter to Wisconsin, Colorado and California to visit her grandson. She enjoyed several automobile trips that originated from San Francisco and that spanned the Pacific Coast from Vancouver, Canada, to Tijuana, Mexico. A trip to London, England, and a special trip to Australia to celebrate her 90th birthday were also highlights of Lyda’s later years. Lyda saw the world change many times over in her lifetime, from an adventure being a trip over a couple of dozen miles in an hour by steam-engine from Moreland to Danville when she was 9 to travel of 7,000 miles in 12 hours by 747 from San Francisco to Sydney when she was 90. Lyda remained curious, adventurous and courageous about the changes in the world over the years, and this kept her young. She was a 21-year survivor of breast cancer. While in her 70s and 80s, she waded in Lake Michigan in Wisconsin, hiked in knee-high snow in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and took long walks around London, England. Amongst the many highlights of her trip to Australia, she took a helicopter ride over the Great Barrier Reef and unhesitatingly hiked a muddy path and waded into a rainforest river to take a nighttime boat trip to see the birds, frogs, snakes and crocodiles along the river. However, Lyda was never able to overcome her fear of sushi, though she did bravely try it once. Lyda was an accomplished seamstress, quilter, craftswoman and gardener. She was competitive about having the first ripe tomatoes in her neighborhood and worked hard to keep the beetles off her roses and other flowers. She loved animals and had many pets over the years, especially doting on her favorite dogs, Teddy, Dixie, Ginger and Shauna. She loved almost all animals with the absolute exception of any snake that might be foolish enough to slither into her yard. Lyda is survived by her daughter, Joanne; her grandson, Larry; a special friend of the family, Gary Taniguchi; and her beloved dog, Shauna. She was preceded in death by her father, mother, husband, brother, Curtis Russell, and sister, Mary Russell. Visitation is 4-8 p.m. today at Stith Funeral Home, Danville. The funeral service will be 1 p.m. Friday at Stith Funeral Home with the Rev. Mike Cox and the Rev. Quentin Scholtz. Burial will be in Bellevue Cemetery, Danville. Pallbearers will be Mark Cross, Robert Fowler, Randall Riley, Mike Singleton, Gary Taniguchi and Bobby Wooldridge. Honorary pallbearers will be Chauncey Love, Chuck Keiser, Sam H. Reid and Vaughn Wilson. The family requests that memorials be sent to the Danville-Boyle County Humane Society or the Central Kentucky Wildlife Refuge. Danville Advocate 8/2/07

Stang, Sister Dorothy; Brazilian farmers, Sister Dorothy Stang was known as the "angel of the Trans-Amazonian."  By Maggie Downs  Enquirer staff writer  Feb. 25, 2005 Through the Pastoral Land Commission, the 74-year-old was an environmental activist who tirelessly helped the impoverished farmers of the Trans-Amazonian area of Anapu, Para. "She wanted to live and die for those people, and that's exactly what she did," said Provincial Elizabeth Marie Bowyer, 73, head of Ohio Province of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in Reading. Sister Dorothy was shot three times in the face Saturday while visiting a remote encampment in the jungle. Born June 7, 1931, in Dayton, Ohio, Sister Dorothy attended Julienne High School. In 1948, she entered the order of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and finished high school at Mount Notre Dame High School in Reading. One of her closest friends was Sister Joan Krimm, 75, who entered the order with her. "She always wanted to give her life to the ministry," Sister Joan said. Sister Dorothy was a staunch supporter of sustainable development and taught how to avoid deforestation. "And in doing so, she made a lot of enemies," Bowyer said. Sister Dorothy had returned to Cincinnati regularly in the past couple of years. Macular degeneration was dimming her sight. She will be laid to rest in Brazil. "She wanted to be buried where she worked," Sister Joan said. A memorial will be 3:30 p.m. March 19 at Mount Notre Dame Convent Chapel in Reading. (OH)

STEWART Charles W., 64, Avondale man was active in athletics, Republican Party:  Charles W. Stewart will probably be remembered in Avondale as the great athlete who never had a chance to achieve fame, and the grass-roots politician who never made it to a major office.  Mr. Stewart was found dead Friday night in his home on Hale Avenue.  Relatives said he died of a heart attack.  He was 64.  “A group of us had watched the basketball game together last Tuesday night, and he had complained that he wasn’t feeling good”, said his sister, Ella Robinson of Avondale.  “He was a kind of civic leader because he cared about people.  He loved politics”, she said. “But probably the most outstanding thing about him was his athletic ability.  It is sad that he probably reached his peak in baseball in the middle 1940s at a time when the old Negro leagues were dying out and when blacks had not been fully accepted in the major leagues”.  Mr. Stewart was a man who achieved greatness in a small arena.  He is one of the few black residents who remained loyal to the Republican Party in a community that voted overwhelmingly Democratic.  He had been a member of the party more than 30 years, and was chairman of the 13th Republican Ward in Avondale at his death.  Athletics was his first love, and he didn’t mind talking about his prowess.  “ I have always been on the first teams in basketball, baseball and football”, he said in a 1989 newspaper article.  He was a running back in high school and went on to play for an Army team in France.  After leaving the service, he turned down a football scholarship to Boston College to play sandlot baseball and football.  He played for the Chicago American Giants of the Old Negro Baseball Leagues in the 1940s.  Mr. Stewart was nursing bad knees and battered ankles in the 1950s by the time he was offered a Class D level contract with the Cincinnati Reds and the Indianapolis Indians, a farm club of the Cleveland Indians.  He decided to work for the post office.  For the rest of his life, he cherished memories of playing baseball on fenceless ball fields in the backwoods of Tennessee or Mississippi, mostly for nothing more than food money.  Mr. Stewart is also survived by his wife, Ernestine Stewart of Avondale; another sister, Edith McAdoo of Rialto, Calif.; and three brothers, Kaiser Stewart of Bond Hill, Leslie Stewart of Roselawn and Franklin Stewart of Joliet, Ill.  Memorial services will be 8 PM today at the Hall-Jordan Funeral Home, 2625 Gilbert Ave., Walnut Hills.  Visitation will be 6 to 7 PM.   Cinti Enq 5/21/1992
