Nancy is survived by many family members including loving sisters Janice Jones, Linda (Kenny) Hettinger and Diane (Roger) Robinson, also devoted children Kim Black, Kathy Black and Doug Black; warmhearted grandchildren, Amanda Black, Markie Black, Jeanna Black, Jeremiah Black, Destiny Petty, Jolain LaMott, Jaylyn Wulff, Lynn Black, Brandy Thresher and Jenna Knox, as well as many great grandchildren, cousins and other beloved family. Upon the rapid development of her dementia Kathy moved her mother into her home to care for her as Nancy had done for so many others family and friends alike. Here she had the faithful support of loving caregivers Nancy Gorby and Diana Owusu. Nancy’s genuine caring nature and guiding heart will live on within our family. A Celebration of Life will be held in late June or early July 2014 which will be announced at a later date. Arrangements by RUTHERFORD-CORBIN FUNERAL HOME, 515High St., Worthington, Ohio 43085.

She loved her family, friends and unique family of animals and will be so sadly missed by all.

Ellis Mary Kay (Rauch) Walton - 1937   Born:  - Died:  2005

England, Dale "Salty" - 19xx Born:  - Died: April 17, 2010

The unique "round bank" building at 7112 E. Main St. Reynoldsburg, OH., celebrated its 50th anniversary on February 1, 2008. Fifty years ago, Dale England's vision of an eye-catching structure became what was known as the "round bank" East Main Street. What was then known as the Reynoldsburg Bank first opened its doors on Feb. 1, 1958 in a small storeroom located next door to Ralph Connell's Hardware Store at the corner of Lancaster Avenue and East Main Street. Within two years, as the popularity of the bank grew, England decided a new bank facility should be built. He wanted something that would attract attention while still accommodating customers.  The result was a round glass structure with a wing-shaped roof, located at 7112 E. Main St. It officially opened on May 24, 1960 with then-Mayor Charles Lemert cutting the ribbon. "The structure was hailed at the time as an architectural wonder," said England's wife, Carol. "It's round and unusual and Dale wanted it to attract people's attention and it did.  "Back then, it was said to be 20 years ahead of its time, and when you stop and think about it, it is kind of a landmark," she said. "It was quite an eye-catcher when it was first erected. The prominent part about it is the roof, which is called a hyperbolic paraboloid." By definition, a hyperbolic paraboloid is an infinite surface in three dimensions with hyperbolic and parabolic cross-sections. According to a press release from 1960, the architecture firm of Taylor & Liebersbach, which were responsible for the structure's plans, said the hyperbolic paraboloid roof is a thin shell roof of poured concrete which covers the 60-foot circular glassed-in office space below.  England said aside from some technology upgrades, the building itself has gone through very little renovation in 50 years. Dale England died in 2004 at the age of 80. His son, Dale Jr., 60, a Pickerington resident, said when the bank was built, the structural concept of such a building was unique and there was nothing like it for miles.  England said he and his mother celebrated the 50th anniversary of the bank on Feb. 1. Even today people still remember what his father did for the community, he said. "Fifty years later, people still tell me, 'well, your dad helped me buy my first house in Reynoldsburg, your dad helped me buy my first car,' and that really makes you feel good," England said. "My dad didn't forget a name of anybody who came in that bank," he said. "Growing up, I used to work there in the summers. I said to him once, 'I'm going to be a banker,' and he said, 'no, you're not!'" Carol, 74, said before her husband started the bank in 1958, he had held positions as a bank examiner for The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and at the First National Bank in Baltimore, Ohio. She said her husband decided to start a bank in Reynoldsburg because there wasn't one located there. "It was the first one established there at that time, but there was a bank in Reynoldsburg before it which went under like a lot of banks did during the Depression," she said. "So there hadn't been one there for about 20 years."  The Reynoldsburg Bank was eventually bought by City National Bank in June 1963. It later became Bank One, which was acquired by Chase Bank in 2004. England said her husband retired in 1980. She began working there in 1958 and was in charge of the teller area and bookkeeping until she retired in 1986. "I'm very, very proud of what he was able to accomplish and what I was able to help him do," she said of her husband. "I think it's quite an accomplishment to be that successful in such a short time." Dale Jr. said he is now involved with a group of entrepreneurs planning to launch a community bank in Pickerington. Horizon National Bank is slated to open in late summer or early fall at what was Sky Bank at 126 Postage Drive. "It's kind of coincidental. Fifty years ago, my dad started a bank in Reynoldsburg and here I am, starting one in Pickerington with some guys," England said. "I'd like to think dad is proud of me." ThisWeekNews.com

Reverend Erladean Heffner, 87, of Baltimore, Ohio, entered the presence of her Lord and Savior on Sunday, January 8, 2012. Erladean was born on July 31, 1924, in Fairfield Co., Ohio to her parents Harriet and Earl McBee. Her calling ultimately led her to the role of pastor of Hopewell United Methodist Church in Lancaster in January 1965 through her death. Erladean was wildly in love with Christ Jesus, and she faithfully served those around her. Her life was a beautiful, inspiring, strong story of faith and compassion. Her door was always open, her heart always full. She cherished quiet mornings with the Lord. Her death is preceded by that of her late husband, Virgil Heffner, who passed away August 18, 1992.

Dr. Dennis Heffner and his wife Dee Dee of Espanola, NM, Tina Rogers and her husband Ron of Clovis, NM, and Marilyn Oravec of Baltimore, OH; nine grandchildren and nine great grandchildren; as well as the congregation of Hopewell United Methodist Church. While the absence of her presence on this earth leaves us with sorrow, we rejoice in knowing she is joyfully worshiping Christ Almighty, interceding on our behalf, and awaiting reconciliation with us in eternity.

Helen MorrisonPlaisted, Helen Marie  (Morrison) - 1949  Born: January 7, 1932 - Died: July 15, 2013

TACOMA: WA: Mother, wife, doctor, musician, teacher, gourmet chef, electrician, chauffeur, gardener, mechanic, plumber, accountant, confidant, warden, janitor, groundskeeper, bookkeeper, cook, wall paper hanger, nurse, painter, housekeeper, CEO, CFO, seamstress. Yes, at various times Helen fulfilled all of these roles, and so many more in what seems an altogether too short time on this earth. Sadly, Helen was born January 7, 1932 in a time when the myriad capabilities and competencies that women easily perform were not as appreciated as they are now. But when she graduated from Liberty Union High School in 1949, she started her journey to help change that. Helen married in 1953, and together she started a family with her husband Ralph E. Plaisted. Helen and Ralph raised six children, three girls and three boys. For her family she had the strength of a legion. She never showed any fear or weakness, even under the most dire circumstances. Always giving willingly of herself, and supporting her family in their times of need without hesitation, this was Helen. The last year had been a difficult one for Helen, she endured blow after blow to her health and confidence, yet she battled back each time. After living for 37 years in Lakeland Florida, Helen decided to travel to the beautiful Pacific Northwest to be with family. Here she found comfort and unconditional love. In her last hours Helen was surrounded at her bedside by her loving family. Her daughter and sons holding her hands, praying for her, comforting her and urging her not to leave them. But as with all, Helen knew it was time for her to return home. Hand in hand the family made that last journey together, until her sons and daughter could travel with her no more. Helen peacefully, with dignity and courage, passed from earthly life to eternal life in the kingdom of God, at 11:00 am on Monday July 15, 2013 from complications after suffering a stroke. An angel on earth, she is now an angel in heaven. Helen is preceded in death by her parents, Hugh Steven Morrison and Francis Katherine Swarner Morrison, and her loyal and devoted furry companions, Holly and Angel, as well as her adoring daughter-in-law, Akiko. Helen is survived by her husband, Ralph E. Plaisted; and her beloved children, Karen, Barbara, Ralph III, Jane, Steven and Cherie, and Gary. She is also survived by six grandchildren, Jason, Erin, Sean, Jennifer, Rebecca, and Nathan; one great grandchild, Amber; and finally, by her furry best pal, Pucci. In lieu of expressions of condolences Helen would like friends to consider supporting the effort to find a cure for diabetes so that no child has to suffer its effects as has her most beloved daughter.
