Albus, Alyce Potterton  
Alyce Potterton Albus Alyce Potterton Albus was born in 1926 and raised in Phildelphia, PA, graduating from Germantown High School in 1944. After graduation, Alyce went to work as a secretary for several Philadelphia companies before going to work at Philco, where she met the love of her life, Donald Albus. They were married in 1954 and Alyce became a homemaker. Their family eventually moved to Ambler, PA in 1959, where they enjoyed raising their two children Dawn and Andrew (deceased). Alyce and Don were close to family and had many wonderful friendships during this time. In 1978, Don's work moved the family to sunny San Jose, CA, where they remained until 2007. Again, Alyce and Don had many wonderful friends in California, and when they "retired", they had the opportunity to travel and have many adventures throughout the world. Alyce and Don choose to move closer to their daughter Dawn and her family, so they packed up and moved to Carson City, Nevada. While in Carson City, they were able to watch their granddaughters grow up, graduate high school and move on to college while enjoying the slower paced life in Nevada. After Don's passing, Alyce moved to Sierra Place Senior and Assisted Living Facility in Carson City, where she had a bright sunny apartment, great food she did not have to cook herself while enjoying family visits, new friends and staff. Alyce's smiling face will be missed by everyone. Alyce was preceded in death by her husband Donald and their son Andrew. She is survived by her daughter Dawn (Rosenberg), son-in-law Mel, granddaughters Alexa and Jackie as well as nieces Pam Shah, Mary Pat Olley, Robin Jaffe and nephew Marc Jaffe. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Carver, Jack (Memoriam)  
Jack "Red" Carver 8/21/26-4/25/90 First you made me laugh. Then you gave me hope. You smiled, you understood. It worked for you, but not for me. I thought it never would. You were always there no matter what. "Hang in there" you would say. Forget what's been and what will be, just worry about today. We were different, yes and both insane, silk sheets and freight trains were all the same. Thanks for the lift, a priceless gift. You're gone, but will remain. Anonymous

He was also a gifted and prolific artist and poet who left behind hundreds of beautiful paintings and works of art. Upon graduation, Bob was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army and was assigned to the infantry at Ford Ord, CA near Monterey, where he met his future wife, Lavena. He accepted Lavena's four children as his own. Bob and Lavena later had their daughter, Denice. Though Bob and Lavena divorced and often shared a unique love/hate passion for each other, Lavena remained the love of his life until the day he left this earth. Bob spent most of his career in the gaming business including Harrah's and the King's Inn Hotel/Casino as general manager. He always looked sharp and handsome in his business suits. When the King's Inn closed, Bob continued working at Fitzgerald's and the Holiday Hotel/Casino until he retired. Bob was a son, brother, husband, father, step-father, grandfather, great-grandfather, friend, athlete, artist, poet, collector of all sorts, hunter, fisherman, veteran and so much more. He left his footprint in this world and touched the lives and hearts of many. He will be dearly missed.

Greif, Erica Leigh  
Erica Leigh Greif August 8, 1991 April 8, 2015 Erica Leigh Greif (the "Reno Rocket") died tragically in a car accident outside Ridgecrest, CA in the early morning hours of April 8, 2015 at the young age of 23. Erica was born in Laguna Hills, CA and lived in Mission Viejo, CA until age 11 when she moved with her mother, Trish Rheuben Greif, and her little brother David to Reno to be closer to her beloved grandparents, Roy and Ellen Rheuben. Erica loved the outdoors. From an early age, she was an accomplished swimmer and equestrian, as well as, a Junior Lifeguard. In Reno she gravitated to skiing and snowboarding, winning a gold medal in the Sky Tavern Junior Ski Program. She was a gifted young musician and studied several instruments, including guitar and keyboard. Despite her 5'2" stature, she gave virtuoso performances on a 7-foot xylophone throughout the United States while on tour with the Mandarins Drum Line of Sacramento. In high school she excelled in her studies, and played clarinet and bass clarinet. She graduated from Reno High School as a member of the National Honor Society. Outside the classroom, she showed a passion and talent for creative arts, making her own jewelry, participating in The Spoken Word open mic poetry reading, publishing her own poetry and performing street art. She also began experimenting in the kitchen, honoring nature by creating unique vegetarian cuisine using local organic food sources. It was in her sophomore year at the University of Nevada, Reno that she discovered her greatest passion, CYCLING. Whether riding from Seattle to San Francisco on a coastal adventure, or qualifying twice for the USA Cycling Collegiate National Championships (often as the sole female rider on the UNR team), she was most at home in the saddle. In 2013 she and future fiance, Nick Schaffner, won the 24-hour Reno ScalleyCat endurance event. She rode up to 70 events a year for UNR the Reno Wheelmen and Hedrick Women's Racing Team, ZOCA-Halo Sports, and was recognized as one of the nation's top up-and-coming young female cyclists, winning the USA Cycling Edmund R. Burke Award. At the time of her death Erica had completed course requirements for a double major in Nutrition-Dietetics and Art at UNR and will graduate posthumously on May 15th. Erica's bold, infectious smile and relentless spirit brightened all who crossed her path. Erica loved the Reno area and was well-known within the community for her work with The Reno Bike Project, The Holland Project, The Spoken Word, UNR's Women With Wrenches and USA Cycling, and was a fixture at Bibo Coffee Co. and Bootleg Courier. She will be fondly remembered and deeply missed by all in the Reno cycling community and the Reno art community, as well as by her beloved fiance Nick, who had proposed to her on a mountaintop in Hawaii only a few short months ago. She will be greatly missed by her brother David, her confidante and best friend in the world, and her friends and family. Erica is survived by her parents, Patricia Rheuben Greif of Reno and Douglas Greif of Phoenix, her brother, David Greif, currently attending Univ. of Arizona in Tucson, her maternal grandparents, Roy and Ellen Rheuben of Reno, her uncle Tom Rheuben (Peggy) of Sisters, OR, cousins Tasman and Jackson Rheuben of Sisters, OR and Jenna Rheuben of Seattle, and half-sisters, Laura Greif Hunter of Houston, TX and Sarah Greif Davis of Fort Worth, TX. She is predeceased by her paternal grandparents, Maria Alvarez of Chicago, IL and Lawrence Greif of Fort Worth, TX. Over 200 cyclists rode in a police escorted candlelight vigil through the streets of Reno the evening of Thursday, April 09, 2015 in memory of this wonderful young woman taken far too soon. A Celebration of Life Service recognizing Erica's extraordinary life was held on Sunday, April 12, 2015 with over 300 people in attendance. A special thank you to the owners of Bibo's & The Reno Bike Project for their contributions. In memory of Erica, donations can be made to the Erica Greif Scholarship Fund at Wells Fargo, account number 3304630142, to benefit UNR Women's Cycling Team, UNR Nutrition Majors, USA Cycling, Reno Bike Project and The Holland Project.
