Johnstone, Barbara Jane Furrer*  
Barbara Jane Furrer Johnstone died in Columbia, SC on Sunday, April 24, 2016. She was born on April 26, 1945 in Springfield, IL to John Lee Furrer and Mary Jane Nemeth Furrer. She graduated from Nevada Community High School in Nevada, IA in 1964. Barb graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 1968 with a Bachelor of Arts in education and was very active in the Delta Zeta sorority. Barb taught second grade in Racine, WI for several years. She moved to Indianapolis, IN where she taught primary special education until 1993. She graduated from Butler University with a Master of Science in Education in 1975. A passionate advocate of special education students and their needs, Barb was honored one year as an Outstanding Primary Special Education Teacher in the Indianapolis Public Schools. Barb was an active member of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International, a professional organization for key women educators. Barb was an ardent gardener and an avid reader throughout her life as well as a beloved sister, spouse, and friend. As a child, Barb enjoyed an idyllic childhood, summering on Washington Island, WI at the family's summer home, The Breakers. Barb married Robert C. Johnstone II in 1989 in Richmond, VA and they moved to South Carolina in 1995. A dedicated wife and aunt, Barb played an influential role in her family's lives, which we have no doubt will continue. She loved her spouse and other family deeply and fondly. A woman of great character, Barb had a close circle of friends, whom she loved and respected. She had deep affection for her sister, but above all, she was interested in every person she met and generously helped untold numbers along their way in life. Though she struggled with ill health in the latter years of her life, she entered her ending years with an indefatigable spirit. The family would like to thank the staff of the Rice Estate (Bernardin House), Columbia, SC, for the devoted care she received. Survivors include her husband of 26 years, Robert C. Johnstone II , Columbia, SC ; daughter of her husband, Anne Luckett Johnstone Diaz (Marco) , Eugene, OR and their children, Sagamore James Blakely, Portland, OR, and Xochilt Sarah Diaz, Eugene, OR; son of her husband, Robert C.

She will be dearly missed. She was preceded in death by her father, John Lee Furrer, mother, Mary Jane (Nemeth) Furrer, and sister Carol Ann (Furrer) Johnstone. Graveside services will be conducted by clergy from an Episcopal Church at Crown Hill Cemetery, Indianapolis, IN on Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Delta Zeta Foundation, 202 East Church Street, Oxford, OH 45056.

Jolly, Donald Herbert*  
Donald Herbert Jolly, M.D. died on April 11, 2016 in Palo Alto, California, at age 99. Dr. Jolly had a distinguished career of public service dedicated to providing care to people with developmental disabilities. He began his career in 1950 in Massachusetts as Assistant Physician at Wrentham State School. He was later Chief Psychiatrist at Fernald State School. In 1957 he moved to Indiana to become Superintendent at Muscatatuck State Hospital and Development Center. In 1967 was appointed Commissioner for the Office of Mental Retardation of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, later serving as later Director of Research and Training and Medical Services Coordinator for the Office. After 10 years in Pennsylvania he returned to practice psychiatry in Indiana as Assistant Superintendent at Central State Hospital and later LaRue D. Carter Memorial Hospital. He retired in 1997. Dr. Jolly was born August 20, 1916 in Hamilton, Ontario, the last child of Joseph and Betsy (Calvert) Jolly. He graduated from McMaster University in 1938 with a Bachelor of Science in biology and was pursuing a doctorate at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, in plant genetics when the war intervened. He returned to Canada to serve as a Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Navy working on training and development of radar. At the end of the war, he enrolled in the McGill University, receiving his medical degree in 1949. After his internship at Royal Victoria Hospital, he moved his family to Boston and began his work with the developmentally disabled as a physician. In 1954 he entered a residency in pediatrics and psychiatry. He held teaching positions at McGill (instructor in genetics), Harvard Medical School (pediatrics), and Indiana University (special education and psychiatry, assistant professor emeritus). He is survived by Helen K. (Jammer) Jolly, 94, his wife of 72 years, whom he met when attending Cornell, his six children -- Joanne, Vera, George, David, Margaret, and Catherine, twelve of his thirteen grandchildren, and 22 great-grandchildren. Dr. Jolly was a man of strong character, powerful intelligence, and unfailing wit. He was driven by great humanity and an endless search for knowledge. His professional example influenced four of his children to take up careers in medical care and the other two to serve in public administration. He was a strong advocate for the developmentally disabled. He said in 1960 that any program for the developmentally disabled must do more than "help them function successfully in society. . . .   [It] must strive ultimately for the maximum growth and happiness open to each person." Dr. Jolly promoted this goal by building of residences with more homelike settings, raising funds for constructing an interfaith chapel on campus, promoting community employment, and establishing an active summer camp program. His graduate work in genetics led to support of investigations into the genetic causes of developmental delay. His interest in electronics and data technology inspired early systems in Pennsylvania to monitor developmental progress of clients throughout the state. His innovations in financing the costs of newer antipsychotic medications provided effective treatment to allow institutionalized individuals with longstanding severe mental illness to return to the community. Dr. Jolly was fellow of American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and served on the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee of the Indiana Association for Retarded Children. He was also a founding member and president of the North Vernon Rotary Club. The family is planning to hold a memorial service later this year at the family plot in Ontario. If you wish to make donations in his name, Dr. Jolly was a generous supporter of the performing arts in Indianapolis, the Salvation Army, and Goodwill Industries.
