Moise, Diane Connolly - Los Angeles  
September 27, 1928 - April 8, 2015 Diane Connolly Moise was born in Los Angeles, the youngest of three girls, to Frank Joseph Connolly and Elizabeth Follen Connolly. She attended Immaculate Heart High School, and became a proud Trojan at USC where she received a degree in History. While at USC, she served as president of the sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta and met the president of the Trojan Knights, Bert Coffey. They married in 1950 and in 1951 welcomed their only child - Stephen. Diane spent the bulk of her career as a kindergarten teacher in Los Angeles, but while moonlighting as an apartment rental agent, she met a globe-trotting physicist named Norton Moise. They were married in 1973 at their Pacific Palisades home. Together they traveled the world and embarked on numerous adventures, one of which took them to Dunedin, New Zealand. When Norton was offered a lecture position at the University of Otago, they decided to take a year's long adventure living in the land of sheep and Hobbits. One year turned into 22 with countless good times of golfing and gardening, painting and dinner parties, bridge and bowls. When Norton passed away in July of 2014, Diane decided that it was time to start planning her return stateside. During what was supposed to be a one month holiday visit to the states, she became ill and what started as a vacation became a farewell tour. She enjoyed Christmas in Idaho and New Years in San Francisco with her nieces. After the holidays she returned to Southern California to be with her son and granddaughters. She cheered the college basketball final on Monday, enjoyed the company of several visiting family members on Tuesday, and on Wednesday April 8th, Diane decided she had had enough and passed on peacefully, surrounded by people who loved her. A wonderful friend, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, she is dearly missed. Diane is survived by her son, three stepchildren, five grandchildren, and her nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, Norton, and her sisters, Betty Connolly Chick, and Sheila Connolly Latasa.

Morgan, Marshall Tad - Sherman Oaks  
November 30, 1941 - April 16, 2015 Dr. Marshall Tad Morgan first decided to devote his professional life to emergency care in 1974 after having been formally trained in Internal Medicine and Cardiology at the UCLA Harbor General Medical Center. At Harbor General his mentor was J. Michael Criley, MD who founded the Los Angeles County Paramedic Program in 1969. At that time, as today, heart disease was the leading cause of death in the United States and most cardiac deaths occurred out of the hospital due to what is now called sudden cardiac death. The creation of paramedic programs was intended to train firemen to rapidly respond to these cardiac and other life threatening emergencies, to deliver emergency care outside of the hospital and then to rapidly transport patients to the "Emergency Room." Emergency Medicine was a new medical discipline at the time and not yet a recognized medical specialty. He began this career at UCLA in 1974 where he was one of the founding Co-Directors of the UCLA Emergency Department. In 1977 he became the Director of the Santa Monica Hospital Emergency Department where he helped establish the Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center which was at that time based in the Emergency Department. In 1981 he returned to UCLA as the Director of the UCLA Emergency Medicine Center. Under Dr. Morgan's direction, the UCLA Emergency Medicine Center became one of the pre-eminent Emergency Medicine programs in the United States. Dr. Morgan recruited and encouraged the academic and professional development of the Center's faculty, oversaw the growth of the UCLA/Olive View Emergency Medicine Residency, and acted as the Clinical Director of the UCLA Emergency Department. During Dr. Morgan's tenure, the Emergency Medicine Center faculty established four centers: the UCLA Center for Disasters and Public Health, the UCLA Center for International Medicine, the UCLA Center for Prehospital Care, and the UCLA Stroke Center in association with the department of Neurology. In 1983 Dr. Morgan founded the UCLA MedStar Air Ambulance Program and he served as its medical director until 1991 when the program was retired. Dr. Morgan held many leadership positions at the UCLA Medical Center. He served as Chief of Staff, he chaired or co-chaired many hospital and medical staff committees and was a long standing member of the Medical Staff Executive Committee. He was involved in the strategic planning for faculty recruitment for the David Geffen School of Medicine and played a role in the planning of the Westwood and Santa Monica replacement hospitals. Dr. Morgan was a leader in organized medicine in California. He served on the Los Angeles County Paramedic Commission and was its Chairman in 1979. He has served as either a Delegate or Alternate Delegate to the California Medical Association's House of Delegates from 2001 to 2012 and as the Chair of its Advisory Panel on Emergency Medicine. He was an active member of the Los Angeles County Medical Association and was a member of its Board of Directors and Executive Committee. He held most of the Association's executive positions and was President from 2013 to 2014. Dr. Morgan's true love was patient care which he continued to provide working in the Ronald Reagan UCLA Emergency Department until early this year. The relationship between emergency physicians and their patients is unique. There is no established doctor patient relationship. Patients, their families and friends are forced to accept the physician who happens to be "on-call" in the emergency department at a time when they or their loved one may be seriously ill or injured. Dr. Morgan was a role model of how every physician should act to gain the patient's trust under these circumstances. He believed you should treat every patient as though they were a member of your own family. He was respectful, not only of patients, but of medical students, residents and his colleagues from all specialties. In this era of high tech medicine he emphasized the importance of compassion and empathy. He was an excellent clinician and he shared his experience with the bedside teaching of thousands of medical students and residents from all specialties for whom he was a role model. In 2007, he was awarded the Sherman M. Mellinkoff Faculty Award for excellence in the art of medicine, the UCLA School of Medicine's highest honor for a clinician educator. Marshall Tad Morgan was born November 30, 1941, in the small town of Hamilton, Ohio, and grew up without indoor plumbing. He completed his undergraduate education at Princeton University, graduating Phi Beta Kappa, and received his medical degree from the University of Chicago where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Dr. Morgan is survived by his loving wife Jean Marie Campbell-Morgan, his children Marshall T. Morgan, Jr., Courtney Morgan-Greene, Shirl Monique Van Der Plas, Terrence Watson, and John Watson, his sisters Jennifer Sue Morgan, and Elizabeth Jane Morgan La Frenz, 10 grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. A Celebration of His Life will be held at the Skirball Cultural Center on May 11th at 4 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations in Dr. Morgan's honor can be made to the Rape Treatment Center at UCLA-Santa Monica Medical Center, 1250 16th Street Santa Monica, CA, 90404.

Munzer, Daphne Ann Donohue - Los Angeles  
March 10, 1925 - April 27, 2015 Daphne Ann Donohue Munzer, born March 10, 1925, passed away Monday, April 27, 2015 at the age of 90. Born in Chicago to Daniel J. Donohue and Marion Libby Donohue, Daphne moved with her parents to Los Angeles in 1939, where she spent her high school years at University High School. She attended UCLA, and also worked during WWII managing aircraft workers at Douglas Aircraft Co. After the war ended, Daphne was reintroduced to an attractive family friend, Navy Lt. Rudy Munzer. Daphne and Rudy were married on June 29,1946, eventually building their first home in Fullerton on Richmond Knoll. In 1962, with Rudy now President of Petrolane, their family of five, which now included Dan, Anne, and Bill, moved to Long Beach. Their home on Virginia Road became the place where special family gatherings were always held, and where Daphne continued to reside after Rudy passed away in May of 2000. Their close proximity to Virginia Country Club made it convenient to enjoy their shared love of golf, and Daphne has continued to play bridge there almost weekly for many years. She had a special place in her heart for her friends at the "Club". As Daphne and Rudy became part of the Long Beach community, they reaffirmed their long held commitment to philanthropy. The Munzer Foundation has been fortunate to be a part of the giving landscape in Long Beach for many years. Daphne has continued to guide the family foundation as they adhere to the mission that she and Rudy conceived. Long Beach Memorial Hospital, St Mary Hospital, The Long Beach Museum of Art, The Aquarium of the Pacific, The Long Beach Library, Children's Day Nursery, St Anthony's School, The Wooden Floor, Long Beach Boys and Girls Clubs, Stanford University, the Boy Scouts of America, and the Long Beach Symphony were only some of the organizations that the foundation was honored to help support. More than anything, Daphne was so very proud of her children, Daniel Munzer (Pamela), Anne Bourne (Randy), and William, (deceased November 2, 2010), and daughter-in-law Susan Munzer. Her eight grandchildren were the delight of her life, and she became a wonderful friend and confidant to each as they grew to adulthood. James Robert Munzer (Jaclyn), Elizabeth Munzer Middagh (Derek), Kirsten Daphne Bourne, John Graff Bourne, Dana Laura Bourne, Daniel Wayne Munzer, Jeffrey Rudolph Munzer, and Nicole Catherine Munzer are truly blessed to have known Daphne as their "Nana". A new generation loved their Great Nana dearly, Baxter, Daphne and Brennan Middagh, and Charlotte Munzer. In March this year Daphne was thrilled when,for her 90th Birthday, a beautiful party was given for her by her family. It was the icing on her cake. Words cannot convey the special feelings her friends and family have for this remarkably strong woman. Her spirit was amazing and she was a friend and inspiration to many who knew her. Her faith was as strong as she was, and we know her loving spirit rests with her God.. Rosary service will be at 7:30 PM, Thursday, April 30, and a memorial service will be held on Friday, May 1, 2015, at 10:30 AM St Barnabas Catholic Church, 3955 Orange Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90807
