Howard Dungan - Obituary - Legacy.com
Fritz, behind in the care of a tenant. By 1940 he joined his parents and other relatives in San Diego and did clerical work for Cadahy Packing Company.It was during a day trip to Tijuana when he and his high school sweetheart and future wife, Anita, learned of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. After consideration of how best to support the American war effort and nearly enlisting in the Marine Corps, he instead joined the Army Air Forces. Training locations included, Santa Ana, California; Glendale, Arizona; Pecos, Texas; Douglas, Arizona; and Greenville, South Carolina as First Station. In the South andTexas he became more aware of deeper issues of racial inequality than he'd seen in Nebraska, where his family sometimes hosted a visiting African Methodist Episcopal (AME) minister for lunch, and he strove to treat everyone fairly throughout his life. In the chapel on base in Pecos, Texas he married Anita Alene Sibbitt, an accomplished violinist who had graduated from what is now the University of Nebraska at Kearney and taught high school for a year in Yutan,Nebraska. She followed Howard around the country for much of his pilot training, working variously as a butcher's helper, nurse's aid, and store clerk.Howard was later stationed in Hawaii, flying North American B-25 Mitchells. While he was flying missions in B-25s as a First Lieutenant in the 7th Air Force, 41st Bombardment Group, 820th Bomb Squadron out of Okinawa over Japan and Japanese-occupied China, Anita had become a "Rosie the Riveter" and learned gas welding at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego.After the war she resumed teaching and then guidance counseling, and completed her master's degree at what is now San Diego State University. Howard also completed his bachelor's degree there on the G.I. Bill, and later his master's degree. Both did post-graduate work at the University of Southern California.From 1948 to 1984 Howard was a teacher and guidance counselor in the San Diego Unified School District, with most of that time at Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School (now Roosevelt International Middle School) where he primarily taught geography, social studies, and history, sometimes with what was referred to as a "Mr. Dungan story." Years into retirement, he would still run into former ... Aug 3, 2020
Downingtown’s Petals Please recycles wedding and funeral flowers into free bouquets for lonely seniors - The Philadelphia Inquirer
Inquirer Morning Newsletter Get the news you need to start your day “It’s such a little gesture,” founder Beth Adams, of Downingtown, said. “But it’s so uplifting.” And not just for bouquet recipients, added Tina Sauk, a retired florist who lives in West Grove and is among 140 Petals Please volunteers: “Even though I don’t know the recipients, it doesn’t matter. The bouquet is made with happiness and given out of love.” The seed that became Petals Please started germinating about two years ago, while Adams, a retired pharmaceutical marketing professional, was working at a hospice. “I went to a local florist and to a funeral home to ask if they had flowers that would [otherwise] be discarded,” recalled Adams, 64. “Myself and a staff member put together little bouquets for patients.” Adams also was inspired by the reaction of a family friend who had once been an avid gardener. “I sent over some flowers I had arranged, and he was so thankful,” she said. “He just missed his garden so much.” Doing research online, Adams found no national organization, let alone a template for putting together a sustainable, all-volunteer flower recovery and repurposing system. But a Northeastern Pennsylvania group was having great success with an approach similar to her idea. So she drove to Scranton, where the volunteers of Petals for Goodness Sake were “so generous and so helpful,” Adams said. “It was, OK, let’s do this.” She began networking from home, calling friends and neighbors. “Because I worked in hospice I knew all of the nursing homes and the assisted living places, and I knew a lot of staff there,” said Adams. “Unfortunately, I knew a lot of funeral directors.” In July 2018, a volunteer picked up the first donation and returned ”with so many flowers in her SUV you couldn’t even see her.” Petals Please has since shifted its arranging sessions from Adams’ dining-room table to a space at Downingtown United Methodist Church. Flowers and vases or other containers are donated, and everything gets recycled, including flower petals, which get taken to a chicken farm in Malvern. Amelia Wondrasch especially enjoys that task. A 15-year-old student at Episcopal Academy in Newtown Square whose family is close to the Adamses, she has been a volunteer pretty much from the beginning. “I’ve always been a big one for recycling and composting,” she said. “And I love the idea of be...

Daisies bring a sunny look to the garden - Sumter Item
SO MANY FLOWERS WITH "DAISY" IN THEIR NAMES
Nowadays, we gardeners use the word "daisy" to represent many different flowers in the daisy family. In the chrysanthemum genus, for example, there's the ox-eye daisy (C. leucanthemum), its white petals encircling a clear yellow disc. It's a familiar roadside plant. This plant, like the English daisy, was a native of Europe, but has firmly established itself in America (many consider it a weed).
Other perennial chrysanthemum daisies include the Nippon daisy (C. nipponicum), also with white petals, and the painted daisy (C. coccineum), whose red, pink or white flowers begin their show in early summer. The high, or giant daisy (C. uliginosum) is aptly named, because its white flowers tower 4 to 7 feet above the ground. The crown, or garland daisy (C. coronarium) is an annual species, with yellow or white flowers atop 3-foot stalks.
The Erigeron genus and the aster genus also have some "daisies;" the former sometimes are called fleabanes, for their alleged ability to drive away fleas, and the latter sometimes are called Michaelmas daisies. Whereas the fleabanes generally bloom in spring and early summer, the asters bloom from late summer into fall. Two representatives of Erigeron that are good garden daisies are the orange daisy (E. aurantiacus) and the seaside, or double-orange daisy (E. glaucus).
The list goes on, including the perennial globe daisy (Globularia trichosantha), a low-growing native of Asia producing a globular, blue flower; the Swan River daisy (Brachycome iberidifolia), a graceful little annual with blue, rose or white flowers; and the blue daisy (Agatheae coelestris), a plant best suited for greenhouse-growing, with sky-blue petals surrounding a yellow eye.
Next spring, I will plant a sweep of pastel landscape with African daisies (Arctotis grandis), whose petals, white skyward over lavender undersides, surround steel-blue centers.
In contrast, individual attention is demanded from each flower of Transvaal daisies (Gerbera jamesonii), which blossom in shades of salmon, pink and apricot in clay pots on my terrace.
A green thumb isn't required to enjoy daisies. Most are hardy plants, free from pests, and able to tolerate poor, dry soils.
If daisies have captured your fancy, sow seeds of perennial forms now. Sow seeds of annual daisies next spring.
Daisies are adaptable plants that can bring their sunny disposition to the formal garden, cottage garden, meadow or abandoned lot. After all, the name daisy comes from a reference to the sun, "day's eye."

Village Flower Basket program still in bloom - Pamplin Media Group
Lake Oswego." Oliphant, who died from cancer in 2014, was on a trip to Victoria, Canada with his wife Barbara, when they saw the hanging floral baskets, his daughter Beth Oliphant Hoover said. Doug was inspired and wanted to spread the beauty throughout Lake Oswego. Oliphant Hoover runs the Oliphant Hoover Community Charity, a nonprofit organization that was created in honor of Doug and gives back to local charities by means of a large golf tournament held every year. This year it was suspended due to COVID-19, though there will still be a raffle. This year, the nonprofit and the Oliphant Hoover families are donating $2,500 to the basket program, though Oliphant Hoover said the donations might exceed $3,000 since an email blast was sent to golf participants, sponsors and donors. Responses and donations were immediate, Oliphant Hoover said. "It was a unanimous vote to participate in a new fresh charity this year, an additional charity, and that charity is the village basket program," said Oliphant Hoover, adding that nonprofit's mission is to be a blessing to the community, and an inspiration to others to be intentional and purpose-driven like her dad was. "We love volunteering and we love just bringing people along (as) servant leaders to just do wonderful things to bless others."
The flower basket program is supported by volunteer donations which go toward the cost of the baskets, daily watering, fertilizing and recycling the baskets at the end of the season. The cost of the program averages more than $70,000, with each basket costing about $350. Fowler said the goal is to collect another $20,000 and keep the baskets up until Labor Day. People can make a tax-deductible donation online, by phone at 503-636-3634, or send a check to the Lake Oswego Chamber Foundation, PO Box 368, Lake Oswego, OR 97034. "Sometimes what people don't hear about the hanging baskets is we get a ton of comments about the baskets as we water and maintain them and the baskets — I have come to the conclusion — give people hope," said Karsseboom, adding that one year as he was watering the baskets, a woman drove up and said she was at a low point, contemplating suicide. But as she watched the truck go by, watering the baskets, she knew everything would be OK and she should keep going. "That gives us purpose in our work," Karsseboom said.

Company uses flowers to send message during local protests - Richmond Free Press
Ms. Shaw, who is African-American.
The statues — Mrs. Walker’s at Broad and Adams streets in Downtown, and Mr. Ashe’s on Monument Avenue, were along the demonstration routes.
“I wanted a way for my company to help more in the black community,” said Ms. Carr, who plans to donate from her floral sales to various organizations supporting Richmond’s African-American community.
With the help of staff and flower donations from Fourteen Acres Flower Farm, Ms. Carr and Ms. Shaw placed flowers around the two monuments on the last weekend in May.
Mrs. Walker’s descendants were heartened.
“That was a beautiful thing as we experience the protests going on in Richmond and the rest of the country,” said Liza Mickens, 22, the greatgreat-granddaughter of Mrs. Walker.
She learned about it when she received a tag on social media by Ms. Shaw, a longtime friend, who had posted a photo of the statue that was ringed with flowers.
“That gesture not only embraced Maggie Walker, who believed the future is in the hands of the youths, it embraces and champions black voices, which is what the monument is all about,” Ms. Mickens said.
“It’s great that we are using all of our talents to champion the cause,” she continued. “The protests and conversations are a continuation of the historic fight for empowerment, equality and equity for all Americans. But it is my generation’s responsibility to leave the world in a better place than when we came into it.”
Ms. Carr has a similar view of history and current events.
“It is sad that police are targeting African-Americans and that economic and educational discrimination is still ingrained in American society, especially after the protests in the 1960s and early ’90s.”
She continued, “All lives don’t matter until black lives matter.”
