At age 8, the family siblings were reunited when his father remarried and he was raised in Rochester, NY where his father, a laborer, and his brothers pursued the "American Dream." He started as a paperboy and learned to create "customers" who became his friends. Later, when the hard financial times of the depression hit, he was able to find work in a pharmacy during the day and completed high school studies with East High Evening School. A promising and talented student, he was only able to complete one chemistry course at the University of Rochester. His love of music began early with a banjo, then a bass, and later a piano. He formed "Anton Duke and Orchestra" was able to arrange music for the popular dance bands of the New York finger lakes area. After the depression, in June of 1937, he got a counter job with the White Towers restaurant corp., an early precursor to the modern hamburger restaurants, and was rapidly promoted to manager for five restaurants in NY state. It was there where he met and married Margaret Dolan. The couple just celebrated 67 years of marriage. Called for duty on November 3, 1943, he served his country during World War II. Private Laduca was trained as a surgical technician at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C. and was sent to care for returning wounded at the 38th General and 56th General Station Hospitals in Cairo, Egypt. When WWII ended, he was honorably discharged holding the rank of staff sergeant. After the war, he and his wife moved to the beautiful warm and dry southwest climate described to him by his army buddies. Like many returning soldiers, he was looking to build a new career and start his family. He joined Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company in 1947 and was given the area of Carlsbad, New Mexico. In 1955, he was one of the first NML agents to complete all of the courses necessary to become a Chartered Life Underwriter CLU and a Chartered Financial Consultant ChFC. Making friends easily, he was active in the St. Edward's Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus. In Carlsbad, he served as a Boy Scout Leader, organized Civil Defense plans for the American Red Cross and was a member of the Lion's Club. He and his wife raised their two children Mary and Joseph "Joe." In 1968, he relocated the family to El Paso, TX where he continued to serve both Carlsbad and El Paso for a career of service to customers that spanned 51 years. In October, 1997, he accepted Senior Retired Agent status. In El Paso, he attended mass daily at St. Raphael's Parrish, where he chaired the Vocations Committee and was an active Serra Club member. He loved to fish in the beautiful streams of northern NM, play jazz piano, theorize about astro physics and to grow tomatoes in his garden. The joy of his later life was his granddaughter Heather Katherine Mooney and his pride in his grandson Gregory Anthony Mooney. He is survived by his loving wife Margaret, daughter Mary L. Mooney and son-in-law Mark Allen Mooney of El Paso, son Joseph John Laduca of San Diego, California, and his grandchildren Heather K. Mooney, of El Paso and Gregory Anthony Mooney of Houston.

He loved the Flint Hills of Kansas, ranching, and oil field work, but World War II took him to Europe where he served as a combat engineer officer in the Italian Campaign. There he met Tina deBernardis, his loving wife for nearly 55 years, and with whom he fathered two children, James and Suzy.

At Ft Bliss he became a respected expert in the electronics of guided missile systems, even to include the initial American forays into ABM systems. With his keen intellect, military retirement became the entrée to new and challenging careers.

He completed his BA and MBA at UTEP, after first starting college at Kansas State Teachers College before WWII. He earned his CPA and ran his small CPA practice on Raynolds Street for many years. During the final stage of his working career he worked with Ammons Boot Company as financial controller from 1986-1997. A Man of many and wide ranging interests, Shew continued to work well into advanced age, especially for SCORE, the Service Committee of Retired Executives. He served on the board of Ballet El Paso for several years, and enjoyed participating in many civic and professional organizations. He especially cherished his weekly lunches with friends, and as an active supporter of arts and culture in El Paso regularly attended performances at UTEP, the Chamizal and El Paso Civic Center. Shew supported the Unitarian/Universalist Community of El Paso, serving as an active member for many years. Seeing the plight of the less fortunate, he devoted much of his time, in his own quiet way, to helping many others achieve greatness. Shew embraced humanity, equality and the innate good in his fellow man. He lived the principles of his faith and sense of social justice. Shew lived a full and righteous life.

LOVING

Fu Mei Loving, 75, died Sunday, Dec. 10 of lung cancer. She was born Fu Mei Chen on July 4, 1931, in Yokohama, Japan. She was the daughter of Kuei Hsun Chen, a dressmaker of note in Tokyo and Yokohama, and Tu Yuen Ku. In her childhood, Mrs. Loving was a professional dancer. She and her sister, Lee Mei, performing under the stage name of The Dove Sisters, and danced routines made famous by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers and were featured performers in Japanese theaters. The Chen family, Chinese nationals, remained in Japan through World War II. They lived through the allied bombings of Yokohama although many of the family's businesses were destroyed by bombs and fires. Her education was cut short by the war as she left Yokohama City High School before graduation. Later, she earned her high school diploma from Bogalusa High School in Bogalusa, Louisiana. The Japanese surrender brought American occupation forces to Yokohama in 1945. One day, Ms. Chen was traveling on a trolley, when an American serviceman saw her. The serviceman was smitten and followed her home where he was chased away by Miss Chen's mother wielding a broom. The serviceman, Shelby Loving, persisted. And even though he could not speak Japanese or Chinese and Miss Chen could not speak English, love blossomed and the two were wed. Mrs. Loving set about learning her husband's language and used Chinese-language and English-language issues of the Reader's Digest to learn English. The couple had two sons, Wings and Bill, and the family was assigned to Army posts in Japan and the United States. Mrs. Loving entered Civil Service in 1962 while the family was stationed in Alaska. She worked in the Army Office of the Comptroller. When the family was reassigned to Japan, she worked for the Quarter Master Agency and GI Education Office. In 1966, the family was sent to Fort Bliss and Mrs. Loving started working in the Office of Personnel Security for the Army Air Defense Center. Her work earned her praise from the Department of the Army including a 1973 Official Commendation for outstanding performance as personnel security clerk and a 1974 Letter of Appreciation for Exceptional professional performance. Mrs. Loving was remembered for her hospitality as she hosted and cooked for her co-workers during the holidays. In the mid 1980s, Mrs. Loving went to work for the Army TRADOC Analysis Command at White Sands. There, her work was recognized with a Sustained Superior Performance Award, Official Commendation and Certificate of Appreciation. She retired in 1990. She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband. Mrs. Loving is survived by her sons, Wings of El Paso, and Bill of Greenville, N.C.; daughters in law, Tanya Loving of El Paso, and Jody Loving of Greenville, N.C.; three grandchildren, April Loving, Adam Loving, both of El Paso, and Jason Jones of Pocatello, ID; a great-grandchild, Christopher Michael Loving of El Paso; a brother, Yuen Fa Chen; and four sisters, Lee Mei Hale, Ton Mei Maeda, Po Mei Mori and Nyo Mei Chen.

BLOMERTH

BLOMERTH Elmer Alexander (Alex) Blomerth was received into the arms of his Lord and Master on October 28, 2006. Alex leaves behind Jan, his bride of 58 years, son and daughter-in law, Honorable Todd Blomerth and Patti Payne, of Lockhart, Texas; daughter and son-in-law Kimberly and Alton Finley, of Seneca, SC; and two grandsons, Matthew Austin Blomerth of Lockhart, Texas and Washington, DC, and Cpl. Jeremy Ryan Brunson of Seneca, SC and Camp LeJeune, NC. Alex also leaves behind a special Son in Christ , Louis Garcia, and a family too large to list of people whose lives the Holy Spirit touched through his ministry, friendship, counsel, and encouragement. Alex was born in Melrose, Mass. on February 14, 1927. He grew up in Maine. After service in the Navy during WWII, he graduated from Texas A&M in 1948. Alex and Jan began their adventure together the same year. Alex s career as a geophysicist with Magnolia and Gulf oil companies took them to Roswell and Portales, NM, Pittsburgh, PA, McComb, MS, Ft. Myers, FL, and finally to Caracas,

Venezuela. Returning to the States in 1961, Alex embarked on his second career as an atmospheric physicist at White Sands Missile Range. Having heard the call of Christ to witness in His name, Alex left White Sands in 1975, and began an incredible walk of faith. With others, he and Jan started KCIK, Channel 14, the first UHF (and Christian) TV station in El Paso. Contemporaneously, Missionary Radio Evangelism, International Christian Television, and Manna Tape Ministry came into being, all to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to El Paso, Juarez, and other parts of the globe. Alex has been described as a bulldog for the Lord. There was never a more apt description. He was relentless in his belief that Christ s message of grace and salvation was to be shared with others. People from as far away as Irkusk, Siberia, Panama, and Puerto Rico received that story. Alex s gregarious personality, playful nature, and warmth of personality helped him witness to what God had done in his life. He blessed and was blessed by many, many friends throughout the world. A celebratory memorial service and Eucharist will be held at the Pro Cathedral Church of St. Clement, 810 Campbell, El Paso, Texas, at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 31st, The Reverend Bill Francis officiating, with reception to follow in the Mayfield Room. The family would like to thank Dr. Kathy Horn, MD, and the wonderful folks from VNA Hospice for their love and attention in Alex's last days on this earth. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make donations to VNA Hospice, or to a Christian charity of your choice. Services under the direction of San Jose Funeral Home-Downtown, 601 S.

ROJAS

Jose Arturo Rojas (Tury/Joe) October 7, 1962 to October 5, 2006, passed away peacefully in his sleep leaving family, friends, co-workers and neighbors in disbelief. A graduate of El Paso High School in 1981 and St. Phillip's College in 1995. He was employed at The Hoover Co. as a Journeyman Mold Maker. He had the wonderful gift of making everyone laugh and was the life of every party. His sense of humor and infectious laugh will be dearly missed. He enjoyed Tejano music, dancing, riding his motorcycle, car shows, and was a well sought out handyman. Most especially he enjoyed spending time with his friends and family. As we fill the emptiness in our hearts, sadness, and endure the uncontrollable emotions and tears let us remember the great times and laughter he shared with us. He will be greatly missed by those whose lives he touched. May the music of angels fill him with joy while he enjoys everlasting peace with our Lord in the promised land. As Tury would have said to us all "Don't grief for me...be not burned with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full I've savored much; good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. God wanted me now; he set me free." We miss you brother. Survived by his mother Maria Concepcion Rojas, sister Maby and brother-in-law Kevin Coker, brothers Angel and Fernando Rojas, niece Cassandra Lozano, nephews Oscar Lozano, Jesse and Steven Rojas, Ryan Rojas Coker and loving pets Lady and Terra Byte.
