STANLEY MARCUS ALCORN
died Sunday, April 18th, 1999 after a sudden unexpected illness. He was born June 18th, 1926 in Modesto, California and grew up there on the farm that he managed from the time of his father's death until his own, and on which he taught his boys, the summer farm-hands, many life lessons. He attended Modesto Junior College, interrupted his studies to serve in the Army Air Force, and graduated from UC Berkeley cum laude before completing his Ph.D. in Plant Pathology there in 1954. Then, hired by the USDA, he moved to Tucson and subsequently transferred his work to the University of Arizona where he became a Professor. His scientific work focused on diseases of cotton, sahuaros, and crops with the potential to replace petroleum products such as jojoba and guayule. Even after retirement in 1989, with thousands of students and dozens of graduate students now spread out around the country, he continued to work on some of his projects as Professor Emeritus. Stan married Esther Eastvold in 1949, also a Berkeley graduate and UCSF-trained physician. They had four boys, Steven, Joseph, Eric, and Mark. Stan was always curious, and in conversation, no matter what subject you raised, you felt surprised at how much he already knew of it, flattered at how much interest in it he took, and stimulated by his questions to learn more yourself. In his last years he especially enjoyed reading, his farm, travel with his beloved wife, and visits with his seven grandchildren. We will never ever forget him. A memorial service will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a contribution to establish a scholarship in memory of Stanley Alcorn may be mailed to: Scholarship Development, University of Arizona, 1111 N. Cherry Ave., Tucson, AZ 85721. Arrangements by BRING'S BROADWAY CHAPEL, 6910 E. Broadway.

Marion V. (Uzdavinis) Livermore
86, died peacefully at Apple Tree Adult Care Home in Tucson on April 25, 1999. Preceded in death by her husband, John F. ``Jack'' Livermore, she is survived by her daughter, Joan Barrett; son-in-law, Bruce Barrett; many nieces and nephews; and devoted friends. A resident of Westfield, Mass. for nearly 50 years, Marion moved to Tucson in 1989 to be near Joan. Born on March 12, 1912, in Greenfield, Mass., Marion lost her father when she was five years old because of an accident with a runaway horse. Her mother, a recent immigrant from Lithuania, struggled to support Marion and three young sons. As soon as Marion became old enough, she worked to contribute income to the house-hold by cleaning homes, sewing and babysitting. An employer, impressed by the girl's dedication and love of family, loaned her the funds to enter nurses training. After Marion graduated from Greenfield High School during the Depression, she studied at North Adams Hospital in Mass. and at Bellevue Hospital in New York City. She became a registered nurse and cared for hundreds of patients before she retired in 1975. One patient, Jack Livermore, became her husband. He had been admitted to the hospital with a broken neck. His girlfriend was recovering from surgery in a nearby room. Marion passed notes between the two. In the process, Jack fell in love with the raven-haired nurse and they married in 1941. They lived in Westfield, where Marion did private duty nursing at Noble Hospital for 34 years. She devoted her time to patients and to raising her only child, Joan. Marion was an active member of the Westfield Nurses Association and the American Red Cross. One summer she worked as a nurse and counselor for the Westfield YMCA's Camp on Wheels. The backyard of her beloved home reflected her gardening skills.
Flowers blazed throughout the summer and vegetables thrived. She also was a consummate seamstress. In retirement, Jack and Marion divided their time between Mass. and a winter home in Sarasota, Fla. They drove through all 48 continental states and explored each capital city. When Jack died, Marion moved to Tucson. Because of failing health, she entered the Apple Tree in 1996. Her positive approach to life was reflected by her frequently saying, ``I've never had it so good.'' She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. ``Marion was a bright spirit and wonderful aunt,'' recalled niece Becky Keene from Bottell, Wash. ``She had nice things to say about everyone.'' No services are scheduled. Memorial contributions may be made to the Tucson Medical Center Foundation Hospice Fund, 5301 E. Grant Road, Tucson, Ariz. 85712.

Stew grew up in Maryland, Santa Barbara and Tucson. He graduated from Tucson High School in 1955 and attended the University of Arizona.
Stew was a dog trainer for over 50 years. He was the founder of Top Dog, a program that specializes in the teaching of handicapped people to train their own service animals. The program has been recognized nationally as a breakthrough in training for service animals.
Stew co-authored several books on training methods adapted for handicapped service dog owners. He worked nationally as an advocate for programs like Top Dog. He also lectured at international conferences and served on the boards of directors of several national animal training professional associations.
In all his 62 years, there were two constants - his love of animals and his sense of humor. He will be remembered for both.
