Richard Hintz
March 30, 1949 - April 02, 2022

Hintz, Richard L., PhD, asleep in Jesus, Saturday, April 2, 2022. He was born in Norwalk, Ohio, a son of Harry and Madelyn (nee Reitzel) Hintz. Rich retired from Monsanto as a Statistics Manager in 2006.

He earned a BS in Animal Science with a minor in statistics from The Ohio State University. Rich then earned his MS and PhD in Animal Breeding and Genetics from Cornell University. He was a member Phi Kappa Phi too. After receiving his degrees, Rich taught in the Animal Science department of Oklahoma State University as an associate professor. He used his skills in animal breeding and genetics to assist numerous zoos with their breeding programs. Rich eventually became the manager of a statistics group in the Animal Science Division of Monsanto. While working for Monsanto, he helped their work on somatotropin in relation to dairy cattle and milk production.

Throughout the years, he was an avid collector and friend of Lowell Davis. Eventually, Lowell would be a major reason he would meet his wife. Rich also enjoyed reading, watching movies (especially westerns), cheering for the Cardinals and Indians, and going on trips around the country with his family. He was heavily involved with Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. During his son’s time in the scouts, he served in various roles. For Cub Scouts he was a Den Leader and Committee Chair for Pack 855. In Boy Scouts, he served as the Advancement Chair for Troop 677. He went through Wood Badge as a Beaver, and he served on the District Eagle Board of Review. Rich made a point to attend numerous scout outings with his son, even a Deep Sea Fishing High Adventure trip. One of his biggest hobbies was supporting his son. He never ceased to remind his family of his love for them. Rich possessed a wonderful sense of humor, a great smile, and incredibly sharp memory. He was follower of Christ who had a deep faith and attended King of Kings Lutheran Church in Chesterfield, MO.

He is the beloved husband of Candace "Candy" Hintz (nee Salomon), and loving father of Cole Hintz. He is also survived by his aunt Irene Reitzel and many special nieces and nephews. Rich was preceded in death by his parents, and siblings Harold "Skip" Hintz, Helen Hintz, and Steven Hintz.

Susan Carol Rose
December 10, 1946 - April 12, 2022

Susan Carol Rose (like the flower) passed away on the evening of Tuesday 4/12/2022. She is proceeded in death by her daughter Jacqueline Rose and survived by daughter Danielle Bristow, grandchildren Alayna Bristow, Andrew Bristow and his fiancé Sara Risker. Susan is also survived by Vicki Jarrin and Andres Jarrin.

Susan Rose was a hell of a mother and grandmother to many. She was more stubborn, and more loving, than most. She never missed an important, or dumb, event in her family’s lives- swim meets, Special Olympic gymnastics, art shows, football games – she was there for all of it. She was infamous for Friday movie and pizza nights with her grandchildren that included repeat children movie selections (National Treasure is a national treasure, don’t change my mind) or an action movie (we knew to not say the swear words after watching- thanks Die Hard). She loved travel both near and far, taking her children up the coast of California, spending summers in Europe (when she stuck her kids in Jewish sleepover camps) and road trips to Laughlin, Reno and Vegas.

Bagels and an endless supply of Sam’s club lox was always provided on Sunday mornings or whenever it was emotionally needed. Her corned beef kept granddaughter Alayna from going vegetarian. And everyone knew to bring their own Tupperware to Thanksgivings and Passovers because leftovers are just as important as a good side dish. Not asking about or having dessert wasn’t an option. Her home and her love was open to all who wanted, or needed, it. Her home in LA was the center of the universe for friends and family and the occasional rambunctious high school party.

She was beloved and infamous and larger than life to everyone who knew her– especially with her trademark wildly painted nails and ring finger nail designs. She never knew a boot she didn’t love or a puffy painted t-shirt from some vacation she went on.

Life without her will include less long texts, less leftovers, less funny stories, and less love. But it will include more gratitude, more dedicated sushi nights, and more reminders of the days when things were good.

Here’s to the knowledge that she now has the new body (Terminator style?) she always said she wanted, and is able to dance and play slot machines on loop with good friends and eat as much ice cream, bacon cheeseburgers, sashimi and powdered sugar as her heart desires.

In lieu of flowers or donations, please take your loved one(s) out to a sushi dinner and order yourself a diet Pepsi (bonus if it’s a can of caffeine free).

Okeedokee? See ya later Alligator.

Nancy Fendell Lurie
January 29, 1942 - April 8, 2022

Nancy Lurie passed away during the night of April 8th, 2022 with her husband Ron by her side. She is preceded in death by her father Charles Fendell, her mother Minna Fendell, her brother Ricky Fendell, and a son Jason, who died shortly after birth.

Born in Cleveland to Charles and Minna Fendell in 1942, Nancy moved to St. Louis soon after. In 1954 she and Ron shared their first of many dances at a junior high party, and the two married in 1965. Nancy attended Oklahoma University for a year then graduated from Washington University. She began working as a middle school PE teacher in St. Louis and continued with that profession when she and Ron moved to New York City in 1968. In 1969 they moved to Washington DC where she gave birth to her first son Michael, then to Anchorage Alaska where she gave birth to a second son, Jason. Tragically, Jason was born with a genetic disorder and died at 6 months old. In 1971 she and Ron moved back to St. Louis where they had her third and last son Ryan in 1972. In 1994 she and Ron moved to Bozeman Montana where she lived until her passing.

Nancy loved people and was a “people person” through and through. Quick to laugh and with a big heart she bonded with people almost instantly. It was not uncommon for her family to wait nearby while she finished a conversation with someone she met at a restaurant or checkout line. In the early 90’s she began working at Rimrock Ranch in Cody, Wyoming during the summer season where she continued to work for nearly 30 years doing everything from cooking meals for the entire ranch, to picking guests up from the airport, to scheduling horse rides and trips to Yellowstone, to her true calling- making sure each and every guest felt taken care of.

More than anything, though, Nancy loved “her boys”. Beginning with coaching little league baseball and soccer teams and participating in ridiculous Halloween tricks for treats, Nancy made her kids feel loved every second of every day and never let pass an opportunity to tell them, even when fully grown, how she proud she was to be their mamma and how much she loved them.

Nano, as Ron often called her, was also a wonderful wife. She and Ron shared a veritable lifetime together. From high school sweethearts to canoe trips in Quetico Superior to raising a family together to relocating to a new state at the age of 50, Nancy and Ron were inseparable for nearly 70 years. Nancy was will be dearly missed but never forgotten.

In addition to her two sons and their wives, Mike (Erica) and Ryan (Merica Suthiboon), Nancy is survived by her two grandchildren Gwendolyn and Everett, her 4 nephews and nieces Chip, Amelia, Christopher, and Tracy, her beloved dog Fella, countless others whose lives she touched thru humor and kindness, and her husband of 57 years, Ron Lurie.

Funeral Service Sunday, April 24 at 11 AM at the Mausoleum at New Mt. Sinai Cemetery, 8430 Gravois in St. Louis. The service will be streamed online for those who would like to attend but cannot. A reception will follow. Details for the link and for the reception follow below.

An additional service will be held at Rimrock Ranch in early September to celebrate her time at the ranch.

George Samuel Newman

May 3, 1945 - April 20, 2022

George S. Newman, born May 3, 1945, passed away on April 20, 2022 from complications of heart disease. He was married for almost fifty years to Susan, his loving wife, best friend and partner. He was cherished by his daughters, Katherine Newman Orwig (Christopher) and Caroline Newman and was the adored funny and silly “Guppie” to Nathaniel and Sebastian Orwig.

Born and raised in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh PA, George remained a “Pittsburgh guy” throughout his life in St. Louis MO. He was a diehard Steelers and Pirates fan; and after college at McGill University, he added the Montreal Canadiens to his list of underdog teams to support.

While at McGill, he made the football team after solemnly promising his dad to hit the books and focus on studies, not football. He was the scrappy kid in the outfield who was only 5’8” but who played his heart out.

After attending law school at William & Mary and a brief stint as a legal aid attorney and clinical law school professor, George developed a thriving legal practice in St. Louis, becoming a national leader and pioneer in the field of immigration law. He played a major role in pushing through legislation to help foreign medical graduates practice medicine in health professional shortage areas. He was a founding member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. He served on countless community boards and committees.

George’s gift was people. They stimulated and energized him. He was unfailingly generous with his time and knowledge of the law with younger immigration attorneys who needed guidance and advice. He never turned away a friend or a friend’s child who needed his help. He made strong personal connections to his clients. Their worries and heartaches mattered to him as he worked to get everyone in the family the waivers and visas they needed for permanent residency.

Besides helping to make new Americans, George loved to make jokes that sometimes only he would get–it didn’t stop him. He was witty, and at times, maybe mercurial and stubborn. He was certainly brilliant and could fill up a room with his charm and warmth. Mostly, he was a mensch; and anyone who met him could depend on his deep kindness.

Memorial service Monday, April 25 at 3 PM at Central Reform Congregation, 5020 Waterman Boulevard at Kingshighway. Central Reform asks that those attending the memorial service are vaccinated and wear a mask for the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions preferred to the International Institute of St. Louis, MERS Goodwill, or the charity of your choice.

Sanford Weiss

July 21, 1932 - May 10, 2022
Sanford Weiss was born July 21, 1932, in St. Louis, Missouri. Raised in Clayton then Richmond Heights, Sanford attended St. Louis Country Day School, where he excelled in football and track. At Princeton, he studied psychology, and published the first research paper on fingernail biting, in 1954. Sanford went on to business school at Northwestern University, then enlisted in the military.

Returning to St. Louis to learn the family business, he married the love of his life, Ellen Coppersmith, in 1960.

By 1970, Sanford and his younger brother Richard were running the family business, Weiss-Neuman Shoe Company, and later added Gucci franchise stores to their portfolio. Richard died tragically at age 57 in 1995. Sanford remained President of Weiss-Neuman until it was sold and he retired, in 1997.

Sanford served as President of the board of the St. Louis Jewish Light, and other boards including St. Louis Country Day School, The NCCJ, United Hebrew Temple and Westwood Country Club. He was also an active member of YPO for many years.

Sanford loved horses, snow skiing, golf, a good book about politics or history, and a being with his family and friends. He and Ellen spent time at their home base at Westwood Country Club, and homes in Breckenridge, Colorado and Admiral’s Cove in Jupiter, Florida. They loved visits from grandkids, family, and friends, which often included golf, hikes, golf ball hunts, and reservations for a nice dinner.

He remained close with lifelong friends from Country Day, Princeton, and Westwood. Sanford also made new friends everywhere, possessing a soothing, friendly personality, always interested in a good conversation, and the opinions of others.

Sanford developed dementia in his mid-80s. While living at Dolan Memory Care home, he loved visits from family and friends, always well-dressed, still asking if there were reservations for dinner.

In addition to his wife and two sons, Stephen (Jenny Weimann) and David (Bobby Sanderson) Sanford is survived by four grandchildren, Mackenzie, Shelby, Madison and Jonathan Weiss.

Alice Roberta Handelman

March 17, 1943 - May 16, 2022

An award-winning writer and photographer, Mrs. Handelman’s passion for journalism began when she was a teenager, writing and editing for the West Miami Junior High Star and the Miami High News. She was later a reporter for the University of Missouri’s Maneater student newspaper. In that capacity, she met the love of her life, Howard Handelman, when she interviewed him for an exposé about men’s senior honors societies. The two were happily married for 55 years, and she missed him terribly after he died on October 14, 2020.

Mrs. Handelman and her sister Arlene were raised in Miami, the daughters of Ned (z’’l) and Margaret (z’’l) Samuels. A journalism degree at Mizzou was intended to be Alice’s ticket out of modest means. She never forgot the scholarship that made that degree possible, and later devoted much time raising awareness and funding for student journalism scholarships.

Discouraged from pursuing a professional career, Mrs. Handelman turned down a job at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch after college, but she quickly discovered that freelance writing would allow her to balance the expectations of domestic life — and raising three daughters — with her career ambitions. Six decades as a journalist gave her opportunities to interview professional athletes, performers, composers and hometown heroes. In the 70s, she wrote feature stories for St. Louis Blues Goal Magazine and taught a class for women at Meramec Community College called “How to Understand Hockey.” She also hosted “Alice in Hockeyland,” a news show on KPLR-TV on that featured interviews with St. Louis Blues players and their wives.

In 1981, Mrs. Handelman became Director of Community Relations for Jewish Center for Aged, a position she held until 2000. While there, she procured donations of original art for the nursing home. Today, the sizable collection decorates the walls of Covenant Place. She was honored by Jewish Federation of St. Louis with the Fred A. Goldstein Professional Leadership Award for excelling in her field.

Upon her retirement, she remained devoted to advocating for older adults, and served as president of the Mid-east Area Agency on Aging (now the Aging Ahead Foundation). She also continued writing as a columnist for the Ladue News, and remained actively involved on many non-profit boards: St. Louis Press Club (past president), Women of Achievement (past president), Aging Ahead Foundation (past president), St. Louis Jewish Light (vice president), Craft Alliance and Women’s Society of Washington University. She is a past board member of Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federation, and a life member of National Council of Jewish Women and the Barnes-Jewish Hospital Auxiliary. Her passion for the causes, people and institutions she believed in was genuine, and she served in an outreach and publicity role for each organization.

Those who knew her will always remember her love of flowers and her uncanny ability to revive wilting orchids. She also enjoyed traveling (and writing feature stories about her travels), playing bridge, collecting art glass and — most of all — spoiling her four grandchildren. She had many friends from every chapter of her life, and cherished each of them.

Mrs. Handelman is survived by three daughters Karen Handelman (Marc Hirshman) and Patty Bloom (Jonathan) of St. Louis, and Marjorie Handelman of New York; grandchildren Rebecca and Matthew Bloom, and Abby and Emily Hirshman; sister Arlene Sackman of California; siblings-in-law Neil and Natalie Handelman, and Gary Handelman (Ronni z’’l), and many nieces and nephews.

A funeral service will take place Thursday, May 19 at 1 p.m. at Congregation Temple Israel, #1 Rabbi Alvan D. Rubin Drive (Ladue at Spoede roads). The service will be available via livestream. Please see below for Live Stream details. Private family internment.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Alice Handelman Scholarship Fund for Feature Writing at the St. Louis Press Club, P.O. Box 410522, Creve Coeur, MO 63141 or stlpressclub.org

Nancy Wolf

March 31, 1935 -  May 30, 2022

Beloved wife of the late Richard C. Wolf; dear mother and mother-in-law of Carol Solomon (Jeffrey), Lynn Wolf, Karla Deboer (Arthur) and Edward Wolf; dear grandmother of David Solomon, Adam Solomon (Ashley), Cynthia Lea Simpson (Dean Wienstroer), Jonathan Simpson (fiancée Alyssa Bridick), Colin Drake, Alan Drake, Resah Drake, Maday Wolf and Benjammin Wolf; dear great-grandmother of Aurora Solomon and Finnigan Solomon; dear sister and sister-in-law of Marilyn Siegel (Barry); dear aunt of Brian Siegel (Christina) and David Siegel; dear great-aunt of Elijah Siegel; dear cousin and friend.

Nancy will be remembered for her devotion to and unconditional love of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She showed tremendous strength and courage after becoming widowed at age 50, following the death of her beloved Richard after nearly 31 years of marriage. She insisted on living life to its fullest, including traveling alone to Venezuela for the birth of a granddaughter. She also joined the fulltime workforce, becoming a friendly and welcoming presence in the office of Congregation Shaare Emeth for 18 years, and later Congregation Kol Am.

Nancy bravely faced a series of health challenges throughout her adult life, most recently a long and arduous battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Her family expresses gratitude to her special friend and caregiver, Brenda Cunningham, and to Pathways Hospice for their compassionate care in her final days.

Graveside service Thursday, June 2nd at 1 PM at New Mt. Sinai Cemetery, 8430 Gravois. Please see below for Live Stream details.

Larry W. Glenn

July 9, 1947 - June 09, 2022

Larry Glenn, son of Austin and Valada Glenn, was born July 9, 1947. He graduated from St. Louis University School of Law in 1974, cum laude, after receiving his BA in business from the University of Missouri, Columbia in 1969. Larry married Gail in 1970.  His three passions included his family and friends, the law and his photography.

Larry loved his career as a trial lawyer.  He believed in helping those who were wronged and fought valiantly in their defense.  His many accomplishments included: President of the Lawyer’s Association of Saint Louis, chair of the trial section of the Metropolitan Bar Association, chair of the legal committee at Shaare Emeth and Camp Rainbow, and syndicated columnist in a business/legal newspaper serving several states. He entertained his readers with strong legal opinions, but was most known for his article on the tragic death of Arthur Ashe, as well as other socially relevant topics. As a respected member of the legal community, Larry was often asked to be a guest speaker at various legal seminars. He was a lawyer in his heart to his last day.

Larry was a committed member of the Board at the Sheldon and the Missouri Association of Trial Lawyers. His compassion was reserved for his many years as a founding Board member of Camp Rainbow, a special camping program for children with cancer or blood diseases.

Although an accomplished professional, Larry always put the needs of his family as his highest priority; whether coaching little league baseball, soccer, working on Science Fair projects or helping drive endless carpools, his family knew they could count on his support. As the family enlarged, he offered the same enthusiasm and carpool runs as he watched his grandchildren flourish.

After surviving cancer twice in his thirties, Larry was diagnosed with Parkinsons in his early sixties. Larry not only loved his family, immediate and extended, he found great comfort and joy in his connections with many close friends. With his friends, he traveled extensively, participated in a history book club, and enjoyed his long lasting poker group, golf trips and photography excursions. Larry led the way to purchase a well loved home in Montana, setting the stage for longterm meaningful memories with family and friends.

Larry will be missed by his wife, Gail, his children Ethan and Alise, granddaughters Alyssa Fritz, Anna Gardner and Isebella and Cheyenne Glenn (Arizona), in laws, nephews, nieces, extended family and his deep and loyal following of incredible friendships.  In spite of various hardships, Larry maintained his dignity and took great pleasure in the life he led.

Funeral service Sunday, June 12 at 1 PM at the Mausoleum at New Mt. Sinai Cemetery, 8430 Gravois. Masks are required. Interment follows.
