June 13, 1931 – January 6, 2022 – November 19, 1927 – January 10, 2022

LaDawn Tolman Jackman died on January 6, 2022 at the home of her daughter and son-in-law Laura and Mark Hudson in Perry, Utah. LaDawn passed through the veil into the arms of her parents Royal Clifford Tolman, Goldie Adams Tolman and their eldest daughter Jeanette, who died on August 31, 2012.

Just four days later, on January 10, 2022, Elden Leon Jackman, LaDawn’s lover and eternal companion, passed away peacefully in Perry, Utah. These two were inseparable in life and even four days was too much for them to be apart. Elden is now in the arms of his beloved wife, parents, Golden Leon and Teton Hanks Jackman, and daughter Jeanette. No doubt they were also greeted by grandson Jay, great-grandchildren Taylor and Ryder, and countless others.

LaDawn was born on June 13, 1931 at her family home in Murtaugh, ID. She was the youngest of six children in the Tolman family and was often introduced by her father as his “baby” even when she was older. LaDawn loved that. Music was a very important part of LaDawn’s life. She played flute, organ and piano and had a beautiful soprano voice. She had the honor of accompanying her father when he sang at every function in town. LaDawn graduated from Twin Falls High School in 1949 and made plans to attend a local business college, but at the last minute her parents decided that Brigham Young University in Provo was the right place for her. There LaDawn met Elden.

Elden was born on November 19, 1927 in Magna, Utah. He is the eldest of six children born to Golden Leon and Teton Hanks Jackman. He graduated from Provo High School in 1945. After graduating, Elden served in the US Navy on the Sea Dog submarine at Pearl Harbor. He later served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the Central Atlantic States Mission in Roanoke, Virginia. After his mission, while attending Brigham Young University, Elden met the beautiful LaDawn Tolman. After their first date in October 1950, things moved quickly for Elden and LaDawn. They began dating November 19, 1950, they became engaged January 1, 1951, and married February 1, 1951 in the Idaho Falls, ID Temple.

Shortly after their marriage, Elden and LaDawn moved to Los Angeles, CA so Elden could pursue a degree in advertising from Woodbury University. His first job after graduation took Elden and LaDawn to Ontario, Oregon. He worked as an appliance salesman for a furniture store and did their advertising. And so began his life as a seller! Elden was a consummate salesman. He loved working with people and truly believed in the products he was selling. He could sell anything, but his focus was on life insurance, real estate, cars, and security systems. Elden has often been recognized for his sales skills and earned the prestigious CLU (Chartered Life Underwriter) accreditation while working for Mutual of New York Life Insurance. Elden’s work took her from Oregon to Idaho, to North Dakota, and finally to Utah. No one is really sure if Elden ever truly retired from work. He loved it so much.

While Elden honed his sales skills, LaDawn was busy raising a house full of kids. She and Elden are parents to 7 children, Todd (Susan) Jackman, Brad (Vicki) Jackman, Jeanette Jackman Kubricky (deceased), Brenna Jackman, Eric (Debbie) Jackman, Laura Jackman (Mark) Hudson and Mary Ann Jackman (Dan) Canfield. They have 63 grandchildren and 85 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild.

While raising children, LaDawn continued to learn. She studied music, religion and education. After the kids left, LaDawn earned her associate degree from Weber State University. LaDawn was very creative and a gifted teacher, choir director, choral director and seamstress. Her skills have always been in high demand. She will forever be known for her beautiful smile and generous heart.

Elden and LaDawn loved the Lord dearly and always desired to serve Him. They were called to be temple workers in the Ogden Temple, a calling they held for more than 25 years. Elden has served in many Church leadership positions, helping 26 young men earn their Eagle Scout rank in the Boy Scout program. LaDawn has served in many church careers, including early morning seminary teacher, parish organist, choirmaster, teacher, and a variety of leadership positions. Elden served six missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, four at LaDawn in Vancouver, Canada, New Jersey, Santiago, Chile, and Roy, Utah.

Elden and LaDawn loved playing games and socializing with their children, grandchildren, and friends. They enjoyed sending birthday cards (with a $2 bill) to posterity, baking chocolate chip cookies, exercising, being in the mountains, camping, hunting, doing family history, serving in the church, Emboss greeting cards to give away, collect coins and buy stamps, watch BYU sports and eat dessert first! And if you knew Elden, you know he loved his camera. He insisted that every event be documented with a picture!

Elden and LaDawn will always be remembered for their love of life and their loyalty to the Lord. When they were together, they would shake hands three times to say “I love you.” We’re sending you our love back now with three firm hugs and our promise to live a life half as good as you.

The family would like to extend sincere gratitude and love to the hospice nurses and workers who have made the last four months of Elden and LaDawn’s lives peaceful and happy. We love each of you.

A viewing of Elden and LaDawn will be held on Friday, January 21, 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, January 22, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. at Myers Mortuary, 845 Washington Blvd, Ogden Utah, instead. After the viewing on Saturday at 11:00 a.m., memorial services will be held. Family members are invited to attend and everyone else is encouraged to attend via a live stream at www.myers-mortuary.com. Burial will take place at Salem City Cemetery in Salem, Utah.

The couple’s plan to turn a Portland church into a cocktail bar fell through for months because of a charter that forbids “sinful” acts https://tac-lawna.org/the-couples-plan-to-turn-a-portland-church-into-a-cocktail-bar-fell-through-for-months-because-of-a-charter-that-forbids-sinful-acts/ Thu, 13 Jan 2022 06:00:00 +0000 https://tac-lawna.org/the-couples-plan-to-turn-a-portland-church-into-a-cocktail-bar-fell-through-for-months-because-of-a-charter-that-forbids-sinful-acts/ PORTLAND, Maine – Johanna and Steve Corman couldn’t believe their luck.

PORTLAND, Maine – Johanna and Steve Corman couldn’t believe their luck.

They had found an old church on the city’s peninsula that they could buy and convert into the cocktail bar of their dreams.

The mortgage would actually be lower than any storefront they could rent in the restaurant-crammed Old Port. With the real estate market soaring at the moment, it seemed like a miracle worthy of the 133-year-old church.

Then, two weeks before closing, their plans were thwarted by an unusual clause in the deed.

Buried deep within the original title deed was handwritten language forbidding the church’s use of anything deemed sinful, which terrified her bank’s insurers. It took some novel legal maneuvers by the Cormans’ attorney to finally smooth things over between the long-dead church founders and the very much alive moneylenders.

The charter aimed to ban uses such as instrumental music, choral concerts, politics and all “devices of uninspired men”.

“I’ve had a few sleepless nights, that’s for sure,” said Johanna Corman, who was standing last week at the former church on the corner of Weymouth Street and Congress Street, where she and her husband plan to open the new Vena’s Fizz House by the summer.

The white church with steeples was built in 1889 and housed a United Church of Christ congregation until 2015. That year she was sold to a group of Baptists for a single dollar. That congregation broke up last year and the church was put on the market.

The Church of Christ’s original charter specifically barred selling the property to anyone who does not operate it as a church. It specifically forbade, along with unholy music, “feasts of acquisition of money,” “elections,” or anything “not clearly taught by the express precept or accepted example of the apostles of Jesus Christ as set forth in the scriptures.” called the New Testament.”

The bank’s underwriters assumed the Fizz House was likely mixing martinis, Manhattans and Sloe Gin fizzes – which was bad news for the Cormans.

Moreover, the time frame of the act extended “even to the return of our Lord.”

The Cormans turned to their attorney for help.

“He wrote a 12-page legal statement and the bank went through with it,” Steve Corman said.

Her attorney argued that the deed’s own general statements were her downfall, based on accepted legal rules against ages.

Broadly speaking, the eternal rules state that a person’s interest in real estate ends 21 years after their death. The purpose of the rule is to prevent people from drafting transfer agreements that could control the fate of land 100 or 200 years after their deaths – just like the Cormans’ case.

These types of rules are usually limited to wills and trusts, not deeds, but their attorney’s novel argument was persuasive enough for the bank.

Now that peace has been restored, the couple are finally moving forward with their renovation plans.

The Cormans opened their original Vena’s Fizz House on Fore Street in 2013, serving non-alcoholic mocktails and mixology accessories like bitters.

Until March 2015, the Cormans also offered regular, alcoholic cocktails. Four years ago, the company expanded to include a nationwide wholesale bitters production and distribution operation based in Westbrook.

But in early 2021, the Cormans decided to permanently close the Old Port retail store and cocktail lounge.

“It was partly due to COVID. It was a very small room,” said Johanna, “and we grew too small anyway.”

They immediately began looking for a new storefront, but came across Portland’s astronomical rents. The cheapest store fronts they could track down were around $6,000 to $9,000 a month with nothing going on.

“It was crazy down in the Old Port,” said Johanna. “And it’s already so saturated with restaurants.”

Then, last spring, the church came on the market. When they did the math, they found that their mortgage would only be about $2,000 a month — far less than any downtown rent.

Although they agreed to purchase the building last June, the tick on the deed held everything four months past their original closing date.

“This is the last little piece of Portland that hasn’t been revitalized,” said Johanna Corman. “It’s almost like we can start from scratch.”

The Baptists sold the pews before they left, but the Cormans said they plan to retain the building’s essential, church-like feel. The altar, for example, remains.

“I’m a notary,” said Steve Corman. “I will marry people here.”

Donna Forsberg Hanson
December 2, 1934 – December 24, 2021
Reno, Nevada – Donna Forsberg Hanson passed away peacefully at home on December 24, 2021, surrounded by loving husband Lloyd and her family. Donna was born on December 2, 1934 in McPherson, Kansas, to Eugene Forsberg and Bertha Anderson Forsberg. She grew up attending schools in Roxbury and Colony, Kansas.
Donna’s successful career began in high school while working in a small-town Kansas grocery store. After graduating in 1952, Donna became a secretary at Morrison Enterprises and then fulfilled her dream of moving to California where she began working for Morrison’s Government Surplus Housing Branch. In 1964, after nearly a dozen coast-to-coast moves, Donna and her young family settled in Reno, Nevada.
Donna was a remarkable businesswoman, having held numerous leadership roles in construction, real estate, and real estate development. In 1983 she moved to Elko County and literally helped build the town of West Wendover, NV. She was actively involved in local government and in the city’s founding process. In 1990, Donna made history as the first mayor of West Wendover, Nevada!
Never forgetting her roots, Donna moved back to Roxbury, Kansas in 1991 to be closer to the family. During this time she continued her illustrious career in Lindsborg, Kansas, as a real estate agent with Lindsborg Realty and as manager of Forsberg Gallery and Courtyard Shops. Donna was also an active member of the Lindsborg Rotary Club.
The best chapter in Donna’s life began when she married Pastor Lloyd Hanson in 1995 and moved into his Sacramento home. She was an exceptional decorator / organizer and took great pride in making her lovely home a warm, comfortable place. Lloyd and Donna have held many family and church gatherings in their 25 years there.
Donna had been a member of the Beta Sigma Phi International Sorority since 1954 and remained active in the Laureate Beta Omega Chapter in Sacramento. Donna also volunteered for various church organizations.
In July 2021, Lloyd and Donna moved to an assisted living facility in Reno, Nevada, where their son Craig and his family live.
Donna’s greatest treasure was her family, including all “mixed members”. She loved gardening, listened to old hymns and piano music, watched sports, and played card games.
Donna was pre-deceased from her parents, four siblings, the father of her sons Olin Crick and their son Steven Crick.
Donna leaves behind her 26-year-old loving husband, Lloyd Hanson, and his four children, Jeff Hanson (Sheryl), Kristen Foote (Rick), Doug Hanson (Debbie), Kara Pryor (Pete), their son Craig Crick (Laura) and grandson Kyle, Jaime , Jake (Maddie), Jonathan, Annie, Luke and Hazel. She also leaves behind her sister-in-law Maleta Forsberg, several nieces and nephews, and stepdaughters Helen White, Laura Tuttle, Kay Stump, Fay Gabbart and their families.
Donna had a positive outlook on life even in the most difficult times. She had a special way of comforting others, especially her children and grandchildren, which she so adored. Donna has been a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend to many. We will miss her beautiful smile, happy laugh and thoughtful manner.
We would like to thank the staff at Five Star Premier Residences and Compassion Care Hospice for caring for Donna before her death. Memorial services will be held in Sacramento, CA and Roxbury, KS at a later date. Instead of flowers, please donate to your preferred charity.

Philadelphia’s Department of Licenses and Inspections on Wednesday granted planning permission to build an eight-story apartment building on the site of St. Laurentius Church, Fishtown’s historic landmark, which is being demolished.

According to plans submitted to the city, the owner, developer Humberto Fernandini of 1600 Berks LLC, intends to replace the brownstone church, built in 1882, with a 45,000-square-foot, 49-unit building on the corner of Berks Street and Memphis Street. The building will have 17 bicycle parking spaces and automated parking on the ground floor for 15 vehicles.

»READ MORE: L&I grants demolition permit for St. Laurentius Church in Fishtown

L&I issued a demolition permit for the church in September and agreed with the owner’s engineers that the entire building – and not just the towering twin towers that define the Fishtown skyline – are structurally unstable and prone to collapse. This decision followed years of efforts by some parishioners and the city to preserve the church and years of requests from the owner to demolish it.

The former Roman Catholic Church was built with donations from Polish immigrants from the 19th century. It is being demolished almost entirely by hand because of its proximity to row houses and a school.

»READ MORE: St. Laurentius sold to new developer

Plans by a former property developer to preserve the church, which has a place on the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places, and convert it into apartments, failed. When the current owner bought the property in January 2020, he said he would try to preserve the building and convert the interior into apartments or offices.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia closed the church in 2014 after engineers said the building was unsafe.

When the Philadelphia Historical Commission approved the demolition of the church’s decaying 50-foot spiers last year, the church’s facade had to be preserved or rebuilt with each new development. That requirement remains in place, a commission spokesman said in September after the city granted approval for full demolition.

A Victorian man struggles for his life after setting himself on fire and yelling about vaccination regulations, leaving a woman who helped with “skin sticking to her shirt”.

A man is fighting for his life in the hospital after setting himself on fire while yelling about vaccination regulations.

The man was seen getting out of a burning car while shouting about Covid vaccines in Richmond, Victoria.

The Herald Sun reported that his first visit to St.

A woman who helped hold the man back and asked not to be named said so Herald Sun the man’s skin burned until he was covered with water.

“His skin burned, he burned,” she said.

“His skin sticks to (my) shirt. He screamed about the mandates. “

Both police and paramedics were called to the gruesome crime scene to treat and arrest the man.

He was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Another witness, who dined nearby, said the man “refueled himself and his car” and said the act was “deliberate”. The witness said the man yelled “no VAX ID”.

The officers cordoned off the street with police tape.

Crime scene photographers arrived at the scene Saturday night and took all sorts of evidence, and other investigators searched the floor and tram tracks near the burned car.

This comes two weeks after Victoria eased restrictions on unvaccinated Australians.

The Victorian government made sweeping changes to the state’s COVID-19 restrictions before Christmas, particularly those affecting retail environments.

Health Minister Martin Foley said the new public health regulations were essential to “preserve the pillars of our vaccinated economy.”

With the changes, people will no longer need to be fully vaccinated to gain access to non-essential retail stores, property inspections and auctions, places of worship, weddings and funerals.

However, to receive hair and beauty services in Victoria, people must be vaccinated.

According to Covid Live, 91 percent of Victoria are fully vaccinated.

Imagine working your entire career on the promise of a pension so that you can make ends meet and enjoy life a little more in retirement.

This nest egg is especially safe, assume that your employer, a hospital, is affiliated with an established global organization with enormous financial and real estate resources and has a long history of helping people in need.

Now imagine if your employer says that there is not enough money to pay your pension.

And this big parenting institution? They say it’s not their problem.

Put yourself in this scenario for a moment and you can imagine what some 1,100 former employees of the disbanded St. Clare’s Hospital in Schenectady have been going through for the past three years: a wound that combines financial devastation and the breach of a promise.

All the more painful that the parent organization is not a faceless company, but the Catholic Church. And the pain goes on and on as the church takes legal maneuvers to evade responsibility.

Perhaps the most frustrating part of this saga is that retirees would not be in this position if the church hadn’t been involved. From the early 1990s, St. Clare’s was able to avoid paying federal insurance for its pension fund and maintaining minimum funding because it qualified as a “church plan” that was exempt from federal regulation. But since the plan collapsed in 2018 for lack of sufficient funds, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany has declared that St. Clare is an independent entity separate from the Church.

St. Clare’s closed in 2008 as part of a nationwide hospital downsizing and consolidation; it officially merged with Ellis Hospital. The state gave St. Clare’s Corp., which continued to manage the fund, $ 28 million to cover its pension liabilities, but the fund found the fund’s shortfall was $ 47 million. The collapse of the fund has resulted in sharply reduced pensions for about 400 people and no pensions at all for about 700 others.

Pensioners have sued the diocese for trying to dismiss the case on various grounds; all of his arguments were rejected by an appeals court last week. So that’s good news, but litigation can take years – and time is all the more valuable in the case of retirees.

Some lawmakers have called for the state to raise more money to keep retirees healthy, and that might well be a way forward. But it seems that the real responsibility lies with the church, which once used its religious status to claim the financial benefits of a church plan, but now does not want responsibility for these 1,100 souls.

No doubt the diocese will say that we do not understand the nuances of fiduciary duties and corporate structures, etc. Here’s what we understand: There is often a difference between what is legally right and what is morally right. Giving up responsibility for people who trusted you may prove legally acceptable in this case, but whether you win or lose, the moral test fails.

Patrick Donlin has spent years renovating properties in East Dallas to keep them from demolition.

He’s done about 30 so far, including an old church.

He heard about the property from a local real estate agent. The Life Restoration Outreach Ministry’s property at 400 Graham Ave. near the Santa Fe Trail included a maisonette next to the church building.

It took Donlin’s team about 10 months to convert the 2,300-square-foot building into a four-bedroom, three-bathroom home. It’s the largest piece of property Donlin has ever worked on.

The main line to the sewer was not properly laid, which had to be repaired. Since the church was empty, the windows were boarded up and broken and needed to be repaired.

Another challenge Donlin had never faced was the design of the building. Other houses he is renovating already have hallways and other interior walls to divide rooms. But the church had to do a lot for Donlin to make it feel like home.

They were able to save the benches and use them as seating in the Food Truck Park in Chuckwagon Park. There was also a baptistery, but they couldn’t save it. Other than that, all that remained of the church were Bibles and some office supplies.

Donlin, the founder of Mr. D Real Estate Group, says the property is now rented by four Woodrow Wilson alumni. He adds that many of the homes greater than 2,000 square feet that feed into Woodrow are often expensive. With this property he wanted to have an attractive dormitory at a reasonable price for people connected to the neighborhood school.

The average rental price for Donlin’s homes is $ 1,650 per month, with three years being the typical rental period.
