  2. Gone too soon: Cottage Grove man was father, firefighter, missionary, EMT June 27, 2018 By William Loeffler - Woodbury Bulletin Excerpt - COTTAGE GROVE — It's a measure of the life lived by Steven Duane Cozad that his unexpected death affected so many. Cozad, 48, of Cottage Grove died June 20 after he was found unresponsive at his home, Newport Fire Chief Steve Wiley said. Cozad served with Wiley on the Newport Fire Department for over 20 years. Cozad's family lost a husband, provider, father and grandfather. The Newport Fire Department lost a capable and courageous comrade. Needy children and families from Newport to Kenya lost a benefactor and advocate. And someone else will have to dress as Santa Claus during the Newport Fire Department Food and Toy Drive in December. As a boy, Cozad received toys that were donated by local firefighters. That left a lasting impression; around 2000, he organized the Newport toy drive. For about two years, he ran most of it on his own, he told the Bulletin in a 2016 story. "I made homemade signs in my garage; they were probably pretty tacky," he said. "I would go drive around and pick (the donations) up." The Newport Fire Department started bringing one of the trucks out to the North Pole at the Newport Center — where Cozad dressed as Santa Claus each year while collecting donations. SOURCE

  4. Massillon’s Santa Tom embodied Christmas spirit, brought smiles to many June 19, 2018 By Amy L. Knapp - IndeOnline.com staff writer Excerpt - MASSILLON - Tom White had a heart of gold and a Christmas spirit that lasted far beyond the holiday season. For decades, White ushered in the holiday season in the city’s annual holiday parade, helped light up downtown and listened to children’s Christmas wishes as the city’s Santa Claus. On Tuesday, the man known as Santa Tom died at the age of 72 after a battle with cancer. “It’s a huge loss for Massillon,” White’s friend, Bonnie Fall, said. Fall met White more than 20 years ago when he answered an ad seeking someone to portray Santa for the Downtown Massillon Association. After she talked to White, Fall figured she found her man. “From that moment I knew he was our Santa,” she said. White portrayed the Jolly Old Elf for more than 30 years. He got involved playing Santa in the 1980s with his wife, Carmela. **** Fall said White was true to character. His knowledge and his storytelling mesmerized thousands of children through the years who sat on his lap. “He would tell them that he saw them last year when he came down the chimney,” Fall said. “He would tell them how he found their feet where their head should be and their head where their feet should be. He so portrayed Santa. He would always tell you he was never a fake Santa.” SOURCE Further update: A short service will be 10:30 a.m. Saturday to honor and remember Tom White, who portrayed Santa Claus for the city for at least 20 years. Friends can call from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at Paquelet Funeral Home, 1100 Wales Road NE. White, 72, died Tuesday after a battle with cancer. For more than 30 years, he has spread Christmas cheer as the Jolly Old Elf. Every holiday season, White would hear the Christmas wishes of children who visited Santa’s Cottage in Duncan Plaza.

  6. Sally Gimbel Taussig, 91, philanthropist and member of iconic Philly family October 11,2017 by Bonnie L Cook - The Inquirer Excerpt: Sally Gimbel Taussig, 91, of Huntingdon Valley, a philanthropist, a descendant of one of Philadelphia’s premier department-store families, and a wife and mother, died of cancer Tuesday, Oct. 10, at her home. Mrs. Taussig spent most of her life in Elkins Park and Abington before moving to Huntingdon Valley 15 years ago. A summa cum laude graduate of Abington High School, Mrs. Taussig attended Smith College, where she majored in geology and graduated in 1947. After college, she worked at the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency in New York City. In 1950, she married Ralph J. Taussig, an international investment banker and World War II veteran. The two met at Philmont Country Club. They were married for 57 years and enjoyed traveling the world together before he died in 2007. Mrs. Taussig was a great-granddaughter of Adam Gimbel, founder of what became the Gimbel Bros. department store chain, and a granddaughter of Ellis A. Gimbel, longtime Gimbels chairman and a Philadelphia philanthropist and civic booster. **** Ellis Gimbel initiated the Gimbels Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1920 – the year women won the right to vote – by leading a caravan of 50 store employees in 15 cars through Center City. The parade grew over the next 65 years to include Santa Claus climbing up a firetruck ladder to a window of the Gimbels store on Market Street, signaling the start of the Christmas buying season.
