We just learned that our good friend Vicki Droker, former Tel Sales Rep died on October 26th.  May she rest in peace.

Hi Ms. Palmer,

My Mother passed away suddenly on Wednesday October 26, 2016 in Walnut Creek, CA.  She was 2 weeks shy of her 98th birthday.  Until the last year she followed all that went on with YP retirees, including all of the litigation regarding the pension issues.  Without a doubt working at YP was  the highlight of her life.  If it weren't for those "dang" computers, I doubt she would have ever retired.  We joked about the fact that most of her friends had passed on, except for her "buddies" from YP.  She was the best Mom, Gran and Great Gran a family could ever wish for.  She will be missed but her spirit lives on in those who new and loved her.  She was magnificent, and she will be missed.

Sue was always cheerful and enjoyed her friends and family immensely. Sue always saw the good in everybody she met. She had many barriers in her life; but that never stopped her from doing for others or being with her family and friends. Her ability to live in the moment is something we all will take away from our knowing Sue as she did it so well.

John (Jack) Ronald Morrison, age 87 died on July 14, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer.

He is survived by his brother David (Joanne) and Jack's three married children: Lisa Morrison (Kevin Cooley), Chris Morrison (Ann Partee Morrison), and Tom Morrison (Beatrice Friedman). He also leaves 8 grandchildren: Matt Cooley, Shirley Ann Morrison, Emily Cooley Hazard, Ben Morrison, Hannah Cooley, Molly Morrison, Carly Morrison, and Luke Morrison. 

Jack grew up in Weirton, West Virginia as the son of a steel worker. Jack enlisted in the US Army in 1946 and served in occupied Japan. After his military service, he attended Bethany College and earned an undergraduate degree; he later received an MBA from the Wharton School of Business. At Bethany, he met and married Shirley Ann Eckberg from NJ. He was a loving partner and they had a blessed life of 58 years together until Shirley's death in 2012.

In 1953 Jack and Shirley married and moved to Camden, NJ where Jack was employed by Raytheon Corporation in their HR department. In 1959, Raytheon(soon to be RCA) asked the family to move to Santa Barbara, California for a new position. In 1962 Jack was recruited to join a private executive search firm, first moving to Los Angeles and finally to San Francisco in 1964. In 1974 Jack started his own executive search firm and it grew to become a very successful enterprise. He was in early on the electronic/tech field and recruited many high level executives in these industries.

Jack was a passionate St. Francis Yacht Club member and adventurer—after moving to California he owned and raced sailboats as well as crewing on many other boats all over the world. After retiring, Shirley & Jack traveled the world together to many exotic destinations, they were unstoppable. Their extended family & friends would often receive postcards telling them about their adventures. 

Jack's proudest achievement and greatest joy was his family. Jack/Shirley took his entire family on holiday vacations spending much time of their free time visiting and adventuring with them. Jack was very proud of his grandchildren and attended each of their high school and college graduations (as well as many of their earlier sporting events); he was proud of the adults they have become. 

He was a loving father/grandfather and a knight in shining armor – he will be dearly missed. He had great friends throughout the world and many happy times with Cynthia Yamoto as well as many other local friends including his Sunday Brunch table-mates at Villa Marin. Many thanks to the caregivers at UCSF, VA hospital, Hospice Marin and Villa Marin – we appreciate their extraordinary care of Jack as he battled illness and rested comfortably in the last weeks of his life.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Marin YMCA (Jack was a lifetime member of the Marin YMCA and had served on its board).

All are invited to a celebration of Jack's life is planned for 3 pm on August 20th at Villa Marin in San Rafael.

A life well lived for 96 years concluded on February 6th, 2016, when Francis J. "Brud" Higgins, Sr. of South Hadley died at Renaissance Manor in Holyoke. He was born in Holyoke on December 4, 1919, the son of Frank and Margaret (Sheehan) Higgins. Educated at Sacred Heart schools, he was a gifted athlete who first gained local attention on the basketball court in the 1930s as the driving force of Sacred Heart's three consecutive Western Mass Small School Tournament Championships at UMASS, a feat never replicated in the long history of that tournament. Moreover, basketball wasn't his best sport. In his last year of school he led his baseball team to an undefeated regular season while leading Western MA in hitting with a .521 batting average. After a short term with the Brooklyn Dodger farm system, he returned to Western MA where he successfully coached his former High School's basketball and baseball teams before and after serving his country in the Navy during World War II. His athletic accomplishments were recognized when he was inducted with the inaugural class of Holyoke Catholic's Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010. Brud spent his professional life in sales. He began in the automobile business as a key member of management teams at Ford dealerships in Holyoke, Springfield, Pittsfield, and Hartford. Later, he transitioned into the advertising business serving for two decades as a sales executive for the Yellow Pages division of New England Telephone and Telegraph. His leisure interests were varied, but definitely included golf. He was at various times a member of The Orchards Golf Club, and Wycoff Park Country Club, where he served multiple terms as an officer of the Men's Golf Association. His ability as an excellent iron player accounted for many holes in one - estimated by some at 13. Brud also loved to travel. As a young man he enjoyed family vacations in Old Lyme, CT. and years later, wintered in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, FL. often accompanied by family and close friends. His ports of call included but were not limited to Hawaii, Ireland, Italy, Bermuda, and CA - once again often joined by family members and dear friends. Brud loved the idea that around every corner on these trips was something he had never seen before. During his later years, he enjoyed watching golf and UCONN Women's basketball from the safety of his recliner. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife Dorothy (LaBelle), his sisters Mildred Higgins, and Lucille Burke, and a brother Edmund Higgins. His memory will be cherished by his son, Brud Higgins Jr. and his wife Judi of South Hadley, as well as by his daughter Catherine Higgins of South Hadley, with whom he lived. He also leaves a loving brother, John ("Hacko") and his wife, Ellen of South Hadley. He will be also be remembered by his granddaughters Tara Morrissey and her husband Brian of Watchfield, England, Jill Therrien of Springfield and Jami Wells and her husband Ben of Somerville, MA. He also leaves two loving great-grandchildren, Torsten Morrissey, and Leah Wells, and several nieces and nephews. The family would like to acknowledge the wonderful care he received by the staff at Renaissance Manor, with special thanks to his nurse, Julianne. The funeral will be held Thursday February 11th at 9:00am from the Barry J. Farrell Funeral Home, 2049 Northampton St. Holyoke, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:00am in St. Patrick Church, Main St. South Hadley. Burial will be held in St. Jerome Cemetery. Calling hours will be held Wednesday from 4:00 to 7:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Shriner's Hospital, 516 Carew St., Springfield, MA 01104 or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105
