Hastings, Florence M. - Framingham  
Florence Mary (Ames) Hastings (Flossie) died May 16, 2016 at Rivermead in Peterborough, New Hampshire. She was born September 29, 1918 in Waltham, Massachusetts, the daughter of Warren and Marion Ames. She graduated from Newton High School and Stoneleigh Junior College. On October 3, 1942, she married Dana B. Hastings of Framingham; he died in 2004. In Natick, where they lived from 1946 to 1980, Flossie was active in Girl Scouting as a troop leader, counselor at Camp Nacochwa, neighborhood leader, trainer of leaders, and trainer of trainers. With her husband, she attended two Girl Scout national encampments, one in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and one in Wyoming. She was a member of the First Congregational Church in Natick and volunteered for the Natick Service Council. After retiring to Rindge in 1980, she was again active in Girl Scouting and the Congregational Church. She volunteered at the Ingalls Memorial Library and was a member of the Monomonock Lake Sailing Association and the Camera Club of Fitchburg. She was particularly proud that she was in Girl Scouting for fifty years and awarded the Thanks Badge twice, once in Massachusetts and once in New Hampshire. In 1980, she traveled with her husband to Germany and Alaska. For over twenty years, they took their camper each winter to warmer places, returning in time for Rindge Town Meeting. In 2008 she made a ten- day trip to Japan. At Rivermead, where she moved in 2006, she developed a long-standing interest in water color painting. She is survived by three children, Sally A. Hastings (the late H. Reid Nolte) of West Lafayette, Indiana; Nancy L. Gunther (Bill) of Rindge, and Dana (Chip) Hastings (Kathy) of Rindge; four grandchildren, Brian Gunther (Jessica Miller) of Brooklyn, New York; Emily Gunther of Encinitas, California; Christopher Hastings (partner Katie Hoag) of Boston; and Lisa Hastings (Liz Upson) of Keene; and one great-grandson, Brice Gunther of Brooklyn. There will be a memorial service at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 4, at the First Congregational Church in Rindge. In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations in Flossies memory to the First Congregational Church of Rindge (6 Payson Hill Rd, Rindge, NH 03461) or Ingalls Memorial Library (PO Box 224, 203 Main Street Rindge, NH 03461).

Hornung, Jere E. - Wellesley  
Jere E. Hornung of Wellesley passed away on May 22, 2016 at the age of 58 after a courageous battle with cancer. He leaves his wife of thirty years, Kimberley (Williams) Hornung, and his two sons, Matthew and Russell Hornung, of Wellesley, MA. He is the son of Louise (Spychalski) Hornung and the late C. Howard Hornung of Ludington, MI, brother of Paul Hornung & wife Marva of Detroit, MI, Charles Hornung & wife Susan of Kentwood, MI, Thomasina Hornung of Salt Lake City, UT, Elizabeth Johnson & husband Jeff of Scottville, MI, and uncle to many nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his father- and mother-in-law, Alan Williams and Beverley (Derrah) Williams of Wellesley, MA, and his sister-in-law, Dawn Williams of Chelmsford, MA. Jere touched the lives of many with his kind and gentle demeanor, generosity, and willingness to lend a hand at any given moment. A well-loved and highly respected engineer, he began his career with Raytheon in 1979, specializing in the field of satellite communications systems. He graduated from Michigan Technological University in 1979 with a BSEE. He is also a graduate of the UMASS Microwave Engineering Program and held a MSEE. He held the position of Technical Director for many years and was also an Engineering Fellow. Jere managed a wide array of programs including satellite communications systems, air traffic control, and homeland security. An Eagle Scout, Jere was very active in Scouting and held the positions of Den Leader and Cubmaster for a number of years, leading two Cub Scout dens and an entire Cub Scout Pack concurrently. He was also very active with the Boy Scouts for several years, serving as a merit badge counselor, mentor, and parent volunteer during many outdoor trips. Music being one of his primary interests, Jere always supported and encouraged all musical opportunities available to his two sons, Matthew and Russell. He played French horn with the Wellesley Town Band from its inception, and prior to having children, he played with the Northboro Community Band. Jeres passion was his family above all else. No matter the responsibilities and the demands of his profession, he was always a very involved parent. Spending time in New Hampshire fishing with his sons was one of his favorite pastimes. It is with tremendous heartache that we say goodbye to Jere, and we will sorely miss him. He has been a wonderful father, husband, brother, son, friend, mentor, role model and colleague. Jeres unassuming personality, humility, positive attitude, and love for his family define the essence of who he truly was. A celebration of Jeres life will be held at the Wellesley Congregational Church (Village Church) at 2 Central Street in Wellesley, MA at 10:00 a.m. on June 11, 2016. All are invited to attend a reception at the church immediately following the service. In lieu of flowers, donations in Jeres memory may be made to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (10 Brookline Place, W, 6th Floor, Brookline, MA 02445; www.dana-farber.org ) or Boy Scouts of America-Knox Trail Council (Mount Royal Drive Office Park, 2 Mount Royal Avenue, Suite 100, Marlboro, MA 01752; www.KTC-BSA.org ). Funeral arrangements by George F. Doherty & Sons Funeral Home, Wellesley.
