A true European at heart, Ruth returned to Germany summer after summer, where she joined her mother and beloved sister, Fridl Ostertag, to travel, laugh, collect wildflowers, and explore the Alps.
In her later years, Ruth lived in Hingham and worked at the Weymouth Public Library, where she remained in close touch with friends and neighbors. Many remember her masterful baking, love of quips and witticisms, and her spirited Elvis Presley parties.

Obituary: Rachel E. von Tungeln

Rachel E. von Tungeln, at 16
Rachel Eileen von Tungeln died on Saturday, April 8, 2017, at home with her Mom at her side. Rachel died as a result of complications from Juvenile Batten Disease, a neurodegenerative genetic brain disease that she was diagnosed with in 2009.
Despite being born healthy and going completely blind, becoming bedridden, and slowly suffering from dementia, Rachel never once complained about the loss of her abilities.  She was a remarkable example of patience and strength.
Rachel’s favorite hobby was eating (especially lobster, Milano cookies, Thanksgiving dinner, Funyuns, clam chowder, cabbage, Vienna sausages, and deviled eggs), and she loved her polydactyl cat, Mittens. Her favorite movies and TV show (that she enjoyed listening to) were “Princess Diaries,” “50 First Dates,” and “iCarly.” 
Rachel also loved listening to the music of Julie Andrews, Queen, Ke$ha, and Elton John. She loved JetBlue and was a Patriots fan, especially after moving to Denver. 
She adored her Granny and Granddad and her siblings, and she was a huge animal lover. Rachel’s wheelchair was intriguing to the animals at every zoo and animal sanctuary she visited and would be completely surrounded by goats, pigs, and cows. She was fearless and held every mammal, reptile, arachnid, and insect she was offered. Rachel loved every minute of it.
Rachel was a student at Jacobs Elementary and Memorial Middle School in Hull; Fletcher Miller School in Lakewood, Colo.; and Collegiate Preparatory Academy in Denver, Colo. She was very lucky to have worked with (and changed the lives of) some of the finest teachers, therapists, and caregivers in every academic setting she entered.
With the help of the community of Hull, customers of The Good Geeks, Rachel’s family and friends, Team Rachel Race 4 A Cure held three road races and raised more than $100,000 for Batten Disease Research. 
Rachel is survived by her parents, Kat and John; her sister, Julie; her brothers, London and Boston; grandparents Eileen and Andrew; her uncles, Adrian and Clive, of Hull; Aunt Meredith, of Braintree; Aunts Janet, Tami, and Gina, of Hull; twin (half) sisters who live in Bremerton, Wash.; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut, and England. 
Rachel was preceded in death by her friend, Nathan, and her Great Granny, Charlotte Matilda. 
The hole in our lives that Rachel left has been incomprehensible, and it has taken more than two years to publish this obituary. Rachel is forever free of her disease, blindness, and her wheelchair. 
A memorial service will be held at the Peddocks Island Chapel in June. Donations to the Rachel von Tungeln Scholarship Fund can be made through the Hull branch of Hingham Savings Bank and will benefit Hull High School graduates pursuing a degree in science.

Obituary: Lenore D. Schneider,

Lenore D. Schneider, at 80
Lenore D. Schneider of Hull, formerly of Marblehead, died peacefully on Thursday, May 9, at the Pat Roche Hospice Home in Hingham. She was 80. 
Born and raised in Brookline, she was the daughter of the late Irving and Gertrude (Berman) Schneider. She earned her undergraduate degree in fine arts from Boston University and later was awarded a master’s degree in education from the University of Arizona. 
Ms. Schneider was an art teacher in the Salem, Swampscott, and Marblehead school systems before Stop & Shop supermarkets hired her and created a position of coordinator of design for the interior of all the stores in its New England network. 
She was one of the first women race-car-drivers in the greater New England area by driving a Formula 1 car at the Skip Barber’s School for Racing. 
She also mastered the manual camera and judged many camera club shows. Her mastery of photography led her into other art forms. She was proficient in acrylics and watercolors and skilled in drawing with colored pencils and sketching. She also produced abstract wall sculptures.
Ms. Schneider was the proprietor and owner of her home gallery, Art on the Avenue, where her artwork is on display and for sale. It may be that her most enduring achievement and legacy will be as one of the earliest presidents of the Hull Artists Studio Connection, now known as Hull Artists. Her efforts and milestones in those early years secured the place of artists in Hull today.
She was the beloved wife and best friend of William (“Bill”) N. Smyth. The two married in 1998 and together shared 21 years of loving marriage. She was the loving mother of Neil J. Yagondorf of Tewksbury and the dear sister of Naomi Gordon and her husband, Roger, of Boston, and Cynthia Sadowski, of Los Angeles. Lenore is also survived by her stepdaughter, Hilary Wirtz, of Tarrytown, N.Y., and by her nephews, David Gordon, of Cleveland, Andrew and Phillip Gordon, both of Boston, and Jonathan Sadowski of Los Angeles.

After graduating, he earned a master’s degree from Michigan State University. He enlisted in the U.S. Army Finance Corps in 1957 and rose to first lieutenant. Following his discharge, Mr. Brown completed his education at Northwestern University, proudly earning a Ph.D. in marketing.

Always a sharp dresser, he became a connoisseur of the cowboy boots and Stetson hats essential to desert living.  
After a decade in the wilds, the couple resettled in Santa Fe, but a potential “third life” beckoned. His daughter, Darci and son-in-law Dean Doty, were revamping an old fisherman’s boarding house in Hull. During visits, Mr. Brown grew enthralled with the beauty of New England, life on the ocean, and the challenges of construction. So, in their 80s, he and Valeria began a “third life” in Massachusetts, close to his adored grandchildren.
He was an avid golfer, an eager traveler, and he loved to trail family members in his mobile home as they took on projects in far-flung places; he was also a gifted raconteur. His legacy continues through the family and friends he cherished.

Born in England to Sarah Annie (Ardley) Osmond and Albert Thomas Osmond, she was the oldest of their three children.

After the passing of her beloved Norman in 2007, Mrs. Harrison moved back to the United States at the age of 80, motivated by her desire to spend time with her one and only grandchild, Campbell Paige, of Hingham, and her four-legged grandchildren, Zach and Zoe. She settled into a seaside condo in Hull, where she enjoyed the sounds of waves and breathtaking sunsets during the past three years.
