LASCHEID
Dr. WILLIAM
Of Naples, Florida and formerly of Sewickley, on Friday, September 19, 2014, at the age of 88. He was blessedly married to his best friend and love of his life, Nancy; and a proud and loving father of six; and grandfather to 11; and great-grandfather of five. He was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1926. He received his undergraduate degree from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. He graduated from the University of Pittsburgh medical school, as the youngest to receive a medical degree from that institution. He completed his residency training at Western Reserve University and The Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. He served his country for nine years in both the Navy and Marines. During a tour of duty with the First Marine Division in Korea in 1951-52, he served as both a Battalion Surgeon and on the front lines with a MASH unit. Dr. Lascheid epitomized what it meant to be a member of the "Greatest Generation." Dr. Lascheid practiced family medicine and dermatology in Sewickley, Pittsburgh, PA. He was on the faculty of the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine as assistant professor of dermatology from 1958 until 1982, when he moved to Naples, FL. After relocating to Naples, Dr. Lascheid continued his dermatology practice and served as Chief of Medicine at Naples Community Hospital (now NCH Health Services) and was president of the Collier County Medical Association. He also served on the boards of several local charitable organizations and a member of too many civic, professional and charitable organizations to name. He was recognized for his service in the medical field and in his community, including: Hodges University Humanitarian Award, N Magazine "Man of Distinction", American Institute of Public Service Jefferson Award, State of Florida Points of Light Award, Naples Daily News Outstanding Citizen Award (with wife, Nancy), Community Foundation Robert C. Cosgrove Award ( with wife, Nancy), Florida Medical Association, and Gulfshore Life Man of the Year in Medicine. Bill was an accomplished golfer having played many rounds with Arnold Palmer. He loved to sing, write limericks, play the ukulele and was a dedicated Steelers Fan. Bill loved practicing medicine. After his retirement, he had a vision that became his mission. A gifted and compassionate man, he and Nancy had long recognized the limited medical care for low income workers. Opening in 1999, the Neighborhood Health Clinic began providing services to low income uninsured workers, with an all volunteer medical staff funded solely by private philanthropy. Until very recently, Dr. Lascheid remained involved in Clinic operations and planning the future of the Clinic. He was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, and one daughter. He is survived by his wife, Nancy; his sister, Mitzi (Ralph); three sons, Fred (Lynne), Peter (Beth), and Chuck (Elizabeth); two daughters, Leslie (Steve) and Mary (Tony); and 11 grandchildren and five great- grandchildren. Suann and Tim Hayes, Bill's sister-in-law and brother-in-law, have had a special place in his heart and life. His daughter, Leslie, had brought him great pride and comfort. Dr. Lascheid leaves a legacy of love to his family, healing to his thousands of patients, and sets a wonderful benchmark in service to his community. A service will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 27, 2014, at Moorings Presbyterian Church at 791 Harbour Drive. The family suggests, in lieu of flowers, contributions to the Neighborhood Health Clinic or the William P. Lascheid MD Endowment for the Clinic, 121 Goodlette Road, Naples, FL 34102.

STENSON
SARA (BANKSON) "SALLY"
Age 86, peacefully passed away on Sept. 21, 2014, at her home, Summerhill Assisted Living in Peterborough, NH. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio, May 2, 1928, daughter of John P. and Marion H. Bankson. She attended Chatham Hall in Chatham, VA and graduated from Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY in 1949. She is survived by her brother, John P. Bankson, Jr. and his wife, Judy, of Gaithersburg, MD. Sara lived most of her adult life in Pittsburgh, PA. Her first marriage was to the late Roy A. Hunt, Jr. She is survived by their daughter, Marion Hunt of New York; and three sons and their spouses, Terry and Gale Hunt of Cambridge, MA, John and Lynda Hunt of Rindge, NH, and Andrew and Robin Hunt of Jensen Beach, FL. Sara has seven grandchildren, Evan Hunt, Tyler Hunt, Avery Hunt, Edward Hunt, Elizabeth Hunt, India Badiner, and Oliver Hunt. Sara married Kiernan Stenson in Stockholm, Sweden in 1975 and they were happily married until his death in 1991. They loved to travel. Sara would want to be best known for her love of children, but recently she was best known as the happiest and the most positive person you could ever meet. She brought joy to everyone, but her care for children was her lifelong mission. She received a master's degree in sociology and social work MSW and she worked with many Pittsburgh organizations dedicated to children, including the Ursulin Center, Family and Children Services, and University City Ministries. She also started a day care center in the East Liberty Presbyterian Church called Extended Family. By using the church's children's rooms during the weekdays, and getting volunteer help from retires, the day care center was able to offer more affordable rates for working families. Behind her desk at her home hung photographs of her with several different Governors of Pennsylvania and also President Lyndon Johnson at the bill signing ceremonies for children's legislation with many trips to Harrisburg or Washington, D.C. She was also involved with several Pittsburgh organizations, including Carnegie Museum and the Junior League of Pittsburgh (president from 1956-1958). Her last years were spent in Peterborough, NH, where her new family at Summerhill enjoyed her singing and walking all the way around Meadows 1. Although she spent her last days in a wheel chair, she still scooted around but even faster. Not that the staff at Summerhill would ever have favorites, but they would often tell family members that they would seek Sara out when ever they were feeling down, because Sara would always raise their spirits with her glorious smile and her infectious laugh. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, November 20, 2014, at 10 a.m. at Sacred Heart Church, 310 Shady Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15206, followed by interment in Allegheny Cemetery, 4734 Butler St., Pittsburgh, PA 15201. Memorial donations may be made to any children's organization of the giver's choice. Arrangements by JOHN A. FREYVOGEL SONS, INC.
