Deaths for the week of Jan. 10, 2020 - The Jewish News of Northern California
Cantor at Congregation Beth Jacob in Redwood City with Rabbi Teitelbaum for over three decades. He earned a master’s degree from Stanford and an honorary doctorate from Hebrew Union College.
In the ’90s, he was diagnosed with throat cancer, but after two successful surgeries, he was able to live cancer-free for many years. Sadly, his voice was greatly impacted, and he was no longer able to eat normally. Yet, in retirement, he led services for Jewish holidays on cruises. He lost Eva to lung cancer shortly after their 50th anniversary. As part of his healing process, he published his autobiography, “Risen from the Ashes, Tales of a Musical Messenger,” which aptly describes his great courage and indomitable will to survive. He married Nina, who has been by his side for 20 years. In all his years, Judaism, service to others and education have been his guiding values.
Hans is preceded in death by his parents, Max and Ida Cohn, and his wife, Eva Cohn. He is survived by his second wife, Nina, and his daughters Becki Cohn-Vargas (Rito Vargas), Ruth Cohn (Michael Lewin) and Barbara Liepman (Michael Liepman), and six grandchildren.
Donations can be sent in his memory to the Hans Cohn Music Fund and CBJ Cares Committee by going to the Congregation Beth Jacob website donation page at bethjacobrwc.org/donate.

Shirley Lenore Daniel, 98, passed away peacefully December 16, 2019, in Millbrae, CA.
Shirley was born March 15, 1921, in San Francisco to Sam and Silvia Wenger and spent the majority of her life in the city she loved. She had an idyllic childhood and idolized both her parents. Shirley graduated from George Washington High School, class of 1938, just the second year after the school’s opening.
Shirley was predeceased by her husband, Leslie, of 56 years. She was also predeceased by her brother, Irwin Wenger.
Shirley is survived by her three sons, Bruce Daniel, Clifford Daniel (Gigi) and Sanford Daniel (Janis). Also survived by her grandchildren, Aaron and Julia Daniel.
Mom was very dedicated to her family and proud of all their accomplishments. She was proud of her Jewish identity. Mom was very enthusiastic about being a native San Franciscan (born and raised), even having walked across the Golden Gate Bridge on the day it opened in 1937. Mom engaged in many activities to keep her mind sharp, including a lifelong love of playing bridge, mahjong and knitting.
Services were held Dec. 20 at Home of Peace Cemetery Chapel in Colma. Contributions to San Francisco Campus for Jewish Living (formerly Jewish Home for the Aged), 302 Silver Ave., SF, CA 94112 preferred.

High School graduate, an employee from the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner's office said Monday.
Eitan Weiner, a 19-year-old sophomore at Stanford, was pronounced dead at the scene by authorities responding to a report of a medical emergency Jan. 17 at Theta Delta Chi.
A preliminary investigation revealed no signs of foul play, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office representatives said in a statement later that day.&

“The university has been in close contact with the family through the weekend,” said Susie Brubaker-Cole, Stanford’s vice provost for student affairs. “We can now share that Weiner was a sophomore planning to major in history when he passed away. … I’d like to thank (Theta Delta Chi) for opening its home to the university so we could support those seeking counseling.

Barbara Wood Obituary - Menlo Park, CA | San Francisco Chronicle - Legacy.com
Bob Wood in San Francisco via a mutual friend, and it was almost love at first sight. They were married six months later in 1956 at Stanford Memorial Church and honeymooned in Hawaii. Their first home was on Wood Street in San Francisco.In 1961, Barbara and Bob moved to Menlo Park where they raised three daughters, Carol, Sally, & Wendy. Barbara created a happy home for her family and was active in the Traditional Shop of the Allied Arts Guild and the Guild's major fund raiser, TallyHo, which supported Stanford Children's Hospital. She was an active member of the Stanford Committee for Art supporting the Stanford Museum, now the Cantor Art Center.Barbara introduced Bob to the world of golf. They joined the Stanford Golf Course in 1966 and later played other courses in the United States and Mexico and took two "People to People" golfing tours of Europe. Barbara's hobbies included French cooking, flower arranging, and oil painting. She sheparded her daughters to competitive gymnastics, tennis, and theater, made costumes, and drove neighborhood car pools. Annual summer family trips were a high spot of the year. The family piled into the station wagon, north to the Canadian Rockies, east to Sun Valley, or south to La Jolla. Barbara loved these adventures, and would always search along the road for a dimly lit dinner with candles.When the girls were grown, Barbara helped her neighbor set up M&T Publishing, an American subsidiary of a German publishing company, that was later acquired by CMP Media, Inc., a global software publishing group. She became its Director of Operations and retired with a big party at age 75.Foreign travel was a large part of her life. She and Bob made 46 trips to ma... Jul 26, 2019
Plant a flower, embrace a community: Sun Messages - cleveland.com
Oprah Winfrey, in a talk given to Stanford business students, defined luck as “preparation meeting the moment of opportunity.” Lucky for Lyndhurst that Perry had a eureka moment, then “started with a few plants and a few herbs.”“That was about five years ago,” she added, noticing that there were some spots with flowers here and there.“Since then my garden has grown -- mostly flowers and herbs, but I have one tomato plant.”And the display leads to conversations and connections. “So many people have told me how wonderful my little garden looks and what a great job I’m doing,” she said. “In the apartment across from me, there are two women in their 90's. ... I’ve added flowers in front of their building and I’ve been told how much they enjoy looking at them.” Although Perry has lupus with severe arthritis, having the garden and working outside comes naturally and lifts her spirits. She has had more than 50 surgeries, which could sideline a less determined individual. But this self-described “people person,” who enjoys meeting and talking with others, designed a way to make a difference -- aesthetically and emotionally.“A few years back, in the midst of some very bad health issues, I told my doctor that I didn’t understand how I could help others, but I couldn’t help myself. He replied, ‘When you help others, the one that gets the most help is you.’”“I can sit back in a wheelchair and watch the world go by or I can be a part of it," Perry reflected.This column is dedicated to the memory of my friend Susan Brachna, who had a zest for life.Write on!

Saving SF's Conservatory of Flowers, Golden Gate Park's grandest building - San Francisco Chronicle
Lick died in 1876, before he could assemble the structure. A group of local businessmen, including Leland Stanford and Charles Crocker, bought the greenhouse and donated it to the San Francisco Parks Commission.
The building opened in 1879. In August of that year, hundreds of San Franciscans went to the conservatory to get a glimpse of one famous flower.
"A large concourse of people visited the Golden Gate Park Conservatory to pay their tribute in admiration of the Victoria Regia, the colossal lily that blooms in the night only," The Chronicle reported on Aug. 28, 1879, describing "THE MARVELOUS LEAVES" and the "delicious pineapple odor" the flower "exhales" upon beginning to bloom.
It was a popular attraction, with The Chronicle reporting 700 visitors on the first night of the bloom, "with another thousand arriving Tuesday evening."
By the next year, the conservatory and its grounds were already drawing crowds. On Feb. 29, 1880, The Chronicle described a rush to visit Golden Gate Park after the Geary Street railroad was finished. The conservatory was "thronged all day" with visitors, some picnicking "al fresco," some taking romantic walks, some reading their "novels or newspapers" on benches at the conservatory's entrance.
By 1934, the conservatory's gardeners were well known for a large and ever-changing display on the grounds, as featured in the "Say It With Flowers" spread in The Chronicle's pictorial section.
In December 1995, Golden Gate Park and the conservatory was severely damaged by a violent winter storm. Storm winds of up to 100 mph shattered the great octagonal dome and threatened the creaky structure.
There was even talk the conservatory would have to be torn down.
"We just don't have the money to rebuild it," Jim Cooney, assistant superintendent of parks for San Francisco, told reporter Nanette Asimov.

Volunteers band together to revive recycled-bouquet program
Volunteer Sandra Bachman, a Woodside resident, said her favorite place to deliver is Stanford University Hospital.
"To go in and see patients that do not have any flowers or visitors and walk in with a bouquet and for five minutes they forget about their problems," Bachman said. "They open their eyes and to get that smile, and to hear through that family what a difference that can make for healing ... A lot of the nurses say it helps them heal. It brings the outside in, the sunshine in."
