Lindsey, Harriett  
Harriett Lindsey 1915 -2015 Mrs. Harriett Lindsey of Whittier passed away February 2 in Artesia, CA. at age 99. Born Gertrude Harriet Plasterer on September 15, 1915 in Kalamazoo, MI, Harriett graduated from Kalamazoo College as an English major in 1936. She became a newspaper reporter for the Ionia [MI] Sentinel before going to Chicago where she edited for Harcourt, Brace & Co. In the early 1940s Harriett traveled to Hollywood, CA. where she met Ben Lindsey. There they married in 1945; in 1950 they moved to east Whittier. Harriett was deeply involved in local civic affairs, working with the Whittier Area Coordinating Council; she helped with PTA and Camp Fire events. From about 1954 to 1964 she frequently contributed articles to the East Whittier Review. She was an active member of Bethany Baptist Church and, later, of Greenleaf Ave. Baptist Church (now Green Hills Church). Harriett Lindsey is remembered for her dedication to community, her sympathetic kindness and her love of children. "Auntie Harriett" - as she was known by relatives and neighborhood children - became the gentle, informal "correct English grammar and pronunciation teacher" for several decades of east Whittier children. She was preceded in death by her husband, her brother Victor and her sister Mary. She is survived by her daughter, three nieces and a large, loving extended family as well as many friends in the greater Whittier area. Memorial contributions may be made to the Lowell Plasterer Scholarship at Kalamazoo College, 1200 Academy St., Kalamazoo, MI 49006 or to the Gertrude Florence Knight Memorial Scholarship, Indiana State University Foundation, 30 North Fifth St., Terre Haute, IN 47809. These scholarships were established by Harriett in memory of her parents. Following Harriett's wishes, cremation has taken place; her ashes will be strewn in Santa Monica Bay at the same location as her husband's. Friends and family are invited to a Memorial Service on Saturday, March 7, at Green Hills Church, 8707 S. Greenleaf Ave., Whittier, at 1:00 pm, Pastor Bo Martin officiating: (562) 943-7291.

Broadbent, Loren Ray  
Loren Ray Broadbent August 9, 1919 - February 24, 2015 He was preceded in death by his father Roddie Broadbent, his mother Ethel Broadbent; his sisters: Frances, Frieda, Margie and Merle and his brother Gerald. He lost his wife, of 50 years, Jerry in November 1997. He is survived by his daughter Frances, nieces and nephews, cousins and many friend and neighbors. He grew up and went to schools in the Glen Elder and Beloit schools. He lost his father when he was 16 years old and his mother when he was 21 years old. He moved out to California in 1940 with his sister Frieda. He lived in San Luis Obispo for a while driving cabs and odd jobs available in the 1940's. He moved south to the Los Angeles/Long Beach area and went to work at Douglas Aircraft. He met his wife Lois Geraldine (Jerry) Ash while working at Douglas Aircraft. Things were a little spicy in the beginning (it wasn't love at first sight) but they got to know each other and married in April 3, 1947. They had a daughter, Frances in February 1948. He made one more job change and went to work for Sear's Roebuck in Vernon, CA. He did just about all of the jobs in a warehouse - order picker, unloading rail cars, inventory, delivery and anything else needed. He retired on 3/31/1982 after 36 years of service. He and his wife Jerry went gambling 3-5 times a year and Bingo 4-6 times a week. While Jerry was alive, they would help neighbors with projects or babysitting - whatever was needed. After Jerry passed away in 1997, he continued to work in his yard and in the house and help his neighbors as often as he could. He traveled as much as possible and still gamble when he could. He lived a life with many challenges but made it through them all.
