James W. 'Bill' Crane
James W. "Bill" Crane, a farmer, MU employee and "Norman Rockwell kind of grandfather," died Wednesday, March 21, 2001. He was 86.
Mr. Crane worked for the landscaping department at MU from 1952 to 1977, between stints on his Ashland cattle farm. All the while, he remained a loving and funny family man, said a grandson, Mike Brown.
Mr. Crane helped raise his children and grandchildren, balancing patience with a sense of humor. When the children went outdoors at night, he would kid them that the "wampus kitty," a creature he invented, would come after them.
"Whenever he said that, you'd always look around and behind you to make sure it wasn't there," Brown said.
Mr. Crane's sense of humor continued with age. Last year, he dressed as a hobo for Halloween.
Mr. Crane's vibrant personality kept him busy. When he wasn't attending services at Woodcrest Primitive Baptist Church in Ashland, Mr. Crane loved to go to dances at Southern Boone County Senior Center.
"He actually danced, and made a lot of friends there," Brown said.
Mr. Crane also built and repaired grandfather clocks, which he gave to each of his children and grandchildren.
Mr. Crane was born on Aug. 15, 1914, to R.G. Crane and Nora Estes Crane of Englewood. He married Mary Helen Calvin on Dec. 24, 1935, in Columbia. She died in 1997.
Visitation for Mr. Crane will be from 5 to 7 p.m. today at Robinson Funeral Home, 601 N. Henry Clay Blvd. in Ashland. Services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday at Robinson Funeral Home and will be conducted by Elder Wallace Johnson.
Mr. Crane is survived by two daughters, Shirley May Shock and Sylvia Jo Brown, both of Hartsburg; a brother, Elmo Crane of Harrisburg; two sisters, Eliza Hoffman of Columbia and Anna Pearl Calvin of Hallsville; five grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and one great-great grandchild.
Memorials may be sent to Woodcrest Cemetery, 400 S. Henry Clay Blvd., Ashland, Mo., 65010, or to New Liberty Cemetery, 203 S. Walnut St., Ashland, Mo. 65010.

Dorothy Ann Wolfe
Dorothy Ann Wolfe of Columbia died Tuesday, March 20, 2001, at Columbia Manor. She was 77.

Mrs. Wolfe's family will have private services. Mrs. Wolfe will be buried at Memorial Park Cemetery, 1217 Business Loop 70 W., Columbia.
Mrs. Wolfe is survived by a son, Tom Marciniak of Centralia; three grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
Her husband, daughter and two brothers died earlier.

Joella F. Dozier
Joella F. Dozier of Columbia died Saturday, March 17, 2001, at Boone Hospital Center. She was 94.
Mrs. Dozier was born Aug. 22, 1906, in Boone County to Emery Thompson and Mary Eliza Daly Lamm. She married Arlie T. Dozier in Boonville on May 31, 1929.
She received her bachelor's degree in education from MU in 1951. She was a teacher in Boone County for 32 years and a member of Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Columbia for 62 years.
Visitation and services, conducted by the Rev. Al Oetman, were held Wednesday at Seventh Day Adventist Church. Burial was in Memorial Park Cemetery.
Mrs. Dozier is survived by a daughter, Mary Beeler of Columbia; one niece; and one nephew.
Her husband, two brothers and three sisters died earlier.

Harold Breimyer
Breimyer championed agricultural policy
Afer witnessing the foreclosure of his boyhood farm in 1927, Harold Breimyer became interested in agricultural economics and affecting governmental policy.
He grew to become a nationally respected teacher, author, lecturer, journalist and extension economist. Mr. Breimyer died Monday, March 19, 2001, at Boone Hospital Center after a long battle with bone cancer. He was 86.
Mr. Breimyer was renown for his dedication, determination and integrity.
"I considered Harold one of my heroes throughout the years," said John Ikerd, MU professor emeritus of agricultural economics. "He always said what he thought about situations regardless of what others thought, and I tried to model what I did after his independent thinking and integrity."
Mr. Breimyer, who served as president of the American Agriculture Economic Association, also wrote a weekly column for the Columbia Daily Tribune. He often bemoaned the growing consolidation in agriculture and the loss of family farms.
"The man was brilliant," Frederick Breimyer said. "When he wrote he could be razor sharp. You didn't win many arguments with dad."
Mr. Breimyer was born on April 13, 1914 in Fort Recovery, Ohio. After working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, he served with distinction during WWII, retiring as a lieutenant commander. Upon returning to civilian life, he resumed his career at the department until 1966, when he joined the agricultural economics faculty at MU.
Mr. Breimyer would later create the Breimyer scholarships at the university, as well as found the Breimyer Lecture, which focuses on one of his passions, energy policies.
In 1983, Mr. Breimyer received MU's Thomas Jefferson Award, an honor given to a faculty member who best reflects the character of Jefferson.
"I've not made Jefferson a conscious object of inspiration, but I've known all along that the ideas that guide me were Jefferson ideals implicitly," Mr. Breimyer told the Missourian in 1983.
Receiving the Thomas Jefferson Award was a crowning achievement for Mr. Breimyer's academic career, said his son, Frederick Breimyer.
"He was highly regarded in his profession, and it reflected his commitment," he said. "His career was beginning to wind down in some ways because of age, and the award served as a capstone to his career." Frederick Breimyer remembers his father as a dedicated and driven teacher who always demanded an honest effort.
"In seventh grade I came home with a D in English, and my father informed me that this was totally unacceptable," he said. "He said, 'I'm going to drill you and work with you every night until we get that D up.' I had a string of Bs after that."
Mr. Breimyer is survived by Rachel, his wife of 59 years; his son, Frederick Breimyer of Wellesley, Mass.; two sisters, Mrs. Ruth Nelson of Bloomfield, Conn., and Mrs. Louise Walker of Nokonis, Fla.; and three grandchildren.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, at Missouri United Methodist Church, 204 Ninth St. Donations may be made to the Breimyer Scholarship Fund; gifts should be sent to MU, designating the Scholarship Fund of the Agriculture Development Office, 2-4 Agricultural Building on the MU campus.

Eleanor Mauze' Conley

Eleanor Conley was one of Columbia's most gracious ladies, a matriarch of one of the city's prominent families.

Mrs. Conley took a job at Stephens College as supervisor of housekeeping and also did some interior decorating for the college.
One of her favorite hobbies was gardening. She also loved to cook and to entertain. Until last fall she met her friends every Friday for lunch, Conley said.

Services, conducted by the Revs. Richard Ramsey and George McCall, will be today at 2 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 16 Hitt St. Burial will be in Columbia Cemetery.
