Rose Farber Greenberg died peacefully on July 15, 2015, at the age of 93. She is survived by her children, Lynn (Rick) and Barry, and grandchildren, Michelle (Stephen) Devon and Cameron. She was predeceased by her husband of more than 67 years, Martin Greenberg; her son, Stuart; brother, Ken (Frieda); and sister, Fae (Al). "Sometimes life has a funny way of opening a door," Rose would say. That is how Rose Greenberg described her initial involvement in the Adopt A Doll project she organized for the Aviva Chapter of Hadassah. In 2009 the chapter was introduced to a project in which volunteers sew dolls for children at the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem. It treats patients from around the world. "The project seemed the thing for me; a wonderful thing to do," Rose said. What began as a handful of members sewing the 18-inch dolls has grown, under her leadership, to a project that has numerous volunteers throughout the area that, within two years, made more than 1,000 dolls. "The doll is a very personal friend for the child, therefore he puts the face on it that he wants for his friend," Rose would say when asked why it has no face. "When sponsored, each doll bears the name of the person it was made in honor of," Rose said. The $18 donation is symbolic since in Hebrew 18 means life. A doll can be adopted for any reason, such as in honor or memory of an individual or to mark a special occasion. Rose had many friends whose help and kindness made her final years in San Diego a joy. With special thanks to: Les and Bonny, Betty and Kim, and everyone else who touched her life and made her final years filled with naches (joy). Please celebrate Rose's life with us on August 13, 2015, at 11am at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. A reception will follow immediately at 17556 Bocage Pt., San Diego, CA 92128. In lieu of flowers, please send all donations to the local Hadassah office located in the Jewish Community Building, 4950 Murphy Canyon Road, San Diego, CA 92123. For more information about Hadassah programs or membership, contact Deena Feinman, Director, at 858-268-3200.

Lifelong La Jolla resident, Moylan Feild Garth (known as "Tony"), passed away unexpectedly from illness May 23, 2015, at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, CA. Growing up in La Jolla Shores he spent his youth attending The Gillespie School, Scripps Elementary (now The Children's School), San Miguel's (now Bishop's), and graduating from La Jolla High School class of '66. He went on and graduated from the University of California Santa Barbara and became a successful stock broker for Dean Witter before deciding to fulfill a passion for the Law. He went to the Thomas Jefferson School of Law where he was Editor in Chief of the Law Review and graduated Magna Cum Laude and became a member of the bar in 1990. After working in the public defender's office and for several top firms he started his own practice becoming a top criminal defense attorney. He believed in the law and everything it stood for. He represented clients from all walks of life and all circumstances and stood tall believing that everyone deserved a proper defense. He was a colorful adventurer who traveled the world and loved telling about all his travels including sailing from Santa Barbara to Brazil where he lived for 9 years ingratiating himself in the language and the people or traveling to China to study international law and in turn watching Tiananmen Square happen live in front of him only escaping when American Military commandeered a commercial plane taking them back to the safety of the United States. He was a lifelong natural athlete who loved the outdoors. He loved surfing the Shores and Slides, running in marathons, hiking, weightlifting, playing baseball and racquetball, biking from La Jolla to Carlsbad and back, and more. In 2007 he was tragically hit and run on his bicycle near his home in Carmel Valley by Torrey Pines. He was left almost paralyzed with the bones in his vertebra and spine shattered and his spinal cord cut. After 19 majorly invasive surgeries over 7 years he defied the medical community and persevered. The last years of his life were spent with his family tirelessly by his side at every surgery, hospital stay, every breakthrough, and recovery and in the months before his death he was walking between 5-8 miles a day. Not able to practice law again, his family became his everything in life. He proudly watched his daughters graduate college, his son join the army, and his grandchildren grow. He was often seen at his grandchildren's school at pick up, open houses, PTA meetings or attending their soccer games at Allan Field and at La Jolla Pinto baseball games. You would see him in the dugout telling the boys stories from when he also played for La Jolla Youth Baseball some 60 years before. His spirit is carried on by the love of his life for more than 20 years, Caroline Linda Thompson of La Jolla; siblings, Bryant Garth and his children, Heather, Andrew and Daniela of Irvine, Natalie Garth of Orange Co., and Diego Garth of San Diego; stepmother, Luisa Garth of Del Mar; aunt, Edith Helen Monsees and her family of La Jolla; his children, Patricia Garth of Encinitas, Dadiva Garth of Encinitas, Jessica Uhrig of La Jolla, and Army Sgt. Ian Thompson currently deployed overseas; and most of all his beloved grandchildren, BellaRose Uhrig and Haiden Uhrig both of La Jolla. He is remembered every day for his quick wit, his genuine authentic kindness, and the twinkle in his blue eyes every time he smiled. Forever in the hearts of all who knew him, he will be dearly missed.  Services will be held at St. James by-the-Sea Church in La Jolla, CA, on August 1, 2015, at 11am. All are welcome to attend.

Jerry Streichler, retired Dean of the College of Technology at Bowling Green State University (BGSU), Bowling Green, Ohio, passed away peacefully on July 2, 2015, in his home in La Jolla. Born on December 8,1929, on the Lower East Side of New York, he grew up during the Depression, then moved to New Jersey during his teen years, moving later to Ohio and then retiring in California. From these humble beginnings, he became one of the leading university educators of his generation. His early career as a mechanical designer in Montclair, New Jersey, was interrupted when his Air National Guard unit was called up for duty during the Korean War. He served at Turner Air Force Base in Georgia, Godman Air Force Base at Fort Knox in Kentucky, and the Air-Ground Operations School in Southern Pines, North Carolina. Following his discharge, he earned his B.S. degree from Newark State College (now Kean University), his M.A. from Montclair State College (now Montclair State University), and his Ph.D. from New York University. His dissertation, The Consultant Industrial Designer in American Industry from 1927 to 1960, became a major source of information about this growing field. He joined the faculties of Montclair State College and Trenton State College before accepting a position as a professor and chair of the Department of Industrial Education and Technology at Bowling Green State University in 1967. As a result of his efforts, the program expanded and became a school, and in 1978, he was named the director of the School of Technology. Further expansion followed and when the school became a college in1985, he was appointed as the founding dean of the College of Technology. He is credited with transforming a small department into a highly regarded college. One colleague described him as "a visionary who early on spotted trends in technology and moved quickly to make Bowling Green a leader in supplying trained graduates for the new positions." He shared his vision for the profession in many of his presentations and writings, and wrote the defining lead article for the 2000 Yearbook of the Council on Technology Education, "Evolving Into the 21st Century-The Past Defines the Paths to be Taken." An avid reader from his youth, he brought to bear his wide learning when he presented university-wide freshman humanities seminars. His graduate and professional courses in technology also reflected the importance of encouraging his students to see the connections in all areas of knowledge. Dr. Streichler's dedication to students and professionals preparing for careers in technology was recognized with invitations for visiting professorships at the University of Michigan, the University of Missouri, Rutgers University, and the College of Staten Island of the City University of New York. His dedication went beyond the classroom as well. He participated in, and evaluated grants to provide assistance to local schools and colleges in the depressed mining regions in Eastern Kentucky. He encouraged leaders in industry to participate in cooperative programs that were designed to provide opportunities for students to widen their horizons and flourish in their careers. And in an effort to broaden the opportunities for students in Historically Black Colleges and Universities, he promoted their participation in Epsilon Pi Tau, the international honorary society in their profession. During a six-month sabbatical from BGSU in 1991, he was invited by Bill W. Stacy, first president of California State University, San Marcos (CSUSM), to join him and the 12 founding faculty as they prepared to enter the first phase of creating a new institution of higher learning. As a special consultant and visiting dean, Dr. Streichler was charged with pursuing administrative and academic planning considerations for CSUSM in two major areas: Extended Studies and Instructional Technology. His final report to President Stacy, "Opportunities and Responsibilities," detailed his recommendations for those areas. Dr. Streichler was recognized for his commitment to the profession when he was invited to become the Executive Director of Epsilon Pi Tau (EPT), the leading International Honorary Society for Technology, serving for 30 years (1976-2006) in this position. He established the Epsilon Pi Tau International Office at BGSU, instituted the Journal of Technology Studies, the flagship, peer-reviewed journal of EPT serving as Editor and Publisher, and founded and edited The Preceptor, a news magazine. He conducted exemplary initiations at national and international meetings, established the EPT Historical Archives at the BGSU Center for Archival Collections, and initiated a successful proposal to become a member of the highly respected Association of College Honor Societies. Upon his retirement as Executive Director, EPT created the Jerry Streichler Center, which supports research and dissemination activities promoting the EPT principles regarding technology education and professions throughout the world. Many of his students and professional associates owe their successful careers to his mentoring and encouragement. In 1992 he was named Trustee Professor Emeritus of Technology and Dean Emeritus of the College of Technology (now the College of Technology, Architecture, and Applied Engineering). He was BGSU's 14th Trustee Professor Emeritus in the 82 years since the founding of the university. Jerry Streichler is remembered not only for his accomplishments in his profession, but also for his generous nature, his values and integrity, his remarkable sense of humor, and his constant devotion to his family. Despite the honors he received for his professionalism, he never took himself too seriously. His warm and loving nature will be missed. He is survived by his wife, Rosalind, and their children, Stuart, Seth, and Robin. A Memorial Service and Celebration of Life will be held at Casa de Mañana on August 30, 2015, at 2:00 pm.
