Los Angeles Association of School Psychologists, Newsletter January 29, 1981 - Regna Labbe LAASP Sweetheart Passes Away - Regna Labbe died very unexpectedly and peacefully January 3rd as she sat in her wheelchair preparing for bed. As a pioneering school psychologist, Regna was, in 1925, one of the first ten in Los Angeles City Schools assigned to assess elementary pupils on a individual basis. During the following thirty-four years wherever she served, her presence was felt. In the spirit of a true pioneer she helped develop and implement various aspects of the profession now taken for granted. Always an optimist, Regna entertained the residents of Villa Gardens, where she resided, with her funny stories and jokes for over twenty years. Recent eye surgeries permitted her to read for herself the huge five year collection of cards and messages from all over the world. Although she outlived her own family, she is survived by her adopted family the "DeLamares," her childhood Sunday School teacher and friends of all ages. - Clinton Eye August 30 1951 - Regna Julian Labbe is Education Specialist Adjustment room work, research and guidance, supervising counselor, remedial reading expert and school progress evaluator are high sounding words, and when they designate as many fields of special interest and knowledge for a Henry County daughter, they characterize a person who has risen as high in her profession as Regna Julian Labbe and thereby bring to her home environs recognition and honor. The old Franklin School was where she mastered the three R's with Miss Mattie Cross as her first teacher, and it was under Miss Katherine Baum that she took the Teacher's training course that gave her the first class room certificate and put her feet in the pathway of achievement in a field that her talents have so abundantly enriched. She taught first at New Harmony and LaDue, then came to Clinton for 1 1/2 years, when her sister, Mrs. Hubert Morgan, who was living near Calgary, Alberta, Canada, wrote her of a vacancy in their school and urged her to come north. She and her mother, Mrs. Alice Julian, and youngest brother, Glenn, (the father, W. G. Julian was dead) went to Canada where in combination with her teaching she attended the University Of Alberta at Edmonton and the Western Canada College in Calgary, improving herself and widening her knowledge. Four years later she and her mother went to California where another sister, Mrs. Lura Harrison, was living. At first she worked in the personal division of a retail merchants credit association, but could not get schools out of her blood, so enrolled in UCLA where she began special training in adjustment room work with children who have academic, social or emotional problems. The standards for teachers being so high in California, much of her work in Canada was discounted, so in order to get California credentials she had to do practice teaching in the state, hence took an assignment at the University. The groove must have been the place for which she was cut as on the completion of her University work she went into adjustment work in the Los Angeles schools and in 1928 was made district counselor in the department of Research and Guidance in Los Angeles east side schools. She trains teachers to give group intelligence and achievement tests; she directs parent study groups; and represents her district office in public relations. Mrs. Labbe is also responsible for organizing surveys and compiling data in the annual evaluation of school progress. With rare judgment and true insight she approaches the mental hygiene problem through in-service-training for teachers, studying growth and development and behavior of children and doing special case work. Her province and that of the teachers is more with the nature of discovery than treatment and over the years in the various capacities in which she has served she sees the changes that common sense and humanitarian programs are affecting, more than the average. For Los Angeles has substantial state aid for the mentally or physically handicapped (the sub normal, cerebral palsied, blind, deaf and defective of speech) and has splendid schools for each of these types. Mrs. Labbe does much public speaking, talking to PTA groups and adult education units, and from her wide knowledge of human nature and even associations in small two, rural Missouri, draws a wisdom in handling tense and critical situations and knotty problems that tax her every resource. Yet, withal she likes her work, and has a yen for the child who has a problem, or the youngster who never had a change, due to indifferent parents, or broken homes, or who by heritage has a handicap that baffles his resource and complicates his home environment. So, teaching becomes for her a vast stage for service, and with gentle voice, genial heart and keen discernment she labors to benefit children and parents and coordinate all for the good of the present generation and tomorrow's world. Mrs. Labbe who will return to Los Angeles September 1st, after a three weeks visit in Clinton with her sister Mrs. Rolla Burch, and other relatives, plans to continue her graduate work at USC this winter in late afternoon and Saturday classes. She holds a psychologist's credential issued by the state of California. She is one of the 12,000 employees in the Los Angeles system. George Labbe, husband of this splendid woman, was claimed by death in 1945. (Note: Regna Julian Labbe was a daughter of Willis Greenberry Julian and Polina Alice Phillips Julian)

Clinton MO, Jul 1930 - Baby Dies From Accident - Four Year Old Son of Uel Lamkin Meets Death - Clement Dickinson Lamkin, four year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Uel Lamkin, was happily at play Monday with a small tin whistle in his mouth, at Maryville, when he fell and the whistle penetrated the inside of his throat and the child slowly bled to death. Physicians and the parents were helpless to stop the hemorrhage. "Little Dick" was born September 29, 1926. He had always been a happy, healthy child, full of life and play, occupying a warm place in the hearts of all. He came into the Lamkin home just two weeks before his 16 year old brother, Billy, died with hemorrhage. His baby smiles and loving little hands made it possible for his parents to stand the lass of their older boy. Mr. Lamkin is president of Missouri State Teachers College at Maryville and his wife was Miss Mary C. Dickinson before her marriage. It is difficult to see why this little child, surrounded by love and every opportunity to become a worth while citizen, should be taken, but it is not given to us to know these things. Little Dick will experience none of life's bitterness that needs come with the joy. He and little Billy are with the angels. The parents brought the little body to Clinton Wednesday morning to the home of his maternal grandparents, Hon. and Mrs. C. C. Dickinson on South Second street. It was then taken to Englewood and laid beside the elder brother.

LANE, Lela Louisa McCANN
b: Mar 1 1867, Muskingum Co, OH
d: Oct 7 1925
Englewood Cemetery LA-LY, Clinton, Henry Co, MO
The sweet spirit of Mrs. Millard E. Lane returned to its Maker at 11:20 p.m. Wednesday, October 7th. For three years she had been a helpless invalid, but the last month had been worse and just a few days before her death grew suddenly worse. Hers was a Spartan courage, bearing suffering and helplessness with a cheery smile, without complaint. Lela Louisa McCann was born March 1, 1867, in Muskingum county, Ohio, being a daughter of Judge and Mrs. Thomas McCann. She was married in that county November 24, 1885, to Millard E. Lane, who survives her with their two sons, Dwight, who is at home, and Harold, of Kansas City. There is one grandson, Harold Lane Jr. of Kansas City. She is survived by three brothers, Dr. T. A. McCann and George B. McCann, Dayton, Ohio; Jasper McCann, of near Zanesville, Ohio; one sister, Mrs. Celestia Clapper, Dayton, Ohio. The Lanes came to Henry county in 1886, and this has been their home since. They first lived Where Will Scherff now resides, north of Clinton, two miles. Twenty years later Mr. Lane bought their present home on the Warrensburg road, one-half mile north of Clinton. Henry county owes much progress to the hard work and the public spirit of Mr. and Mrs. Lane. They were ever ready with hand and heart to promote anything that was for the better welfare of the county. They were both absolutely unselfish. Mrs. Lane had been a devoted member of the Presbyterian church for many years, and raised her children to know and follow the Lord Jesus Christ. When she became completely helpless, her greatest regret was that they must give up their work in the church in order to care for her. Mrs. Lane was an unusual woman. Love ruled her life. Her home was a hallowed spot. The Christ was acknowledged in every deed of her life. She put her religion in the sunshine of her smile, which always beckoned you in and bade you welcome to the cozy home. Her duties did not stop as a homemaker or home keeper, but what a wonderful mate she was, what a companion she was to her husband and sons. what a counselor and friend, and what a neighbor! Never has there been more tender devotion and care than were given to this frail little woman by the husband and sons. They lived and nearly breathed for her. For many weary months she had not been able to move, except as they moved her. Her condition was such that they had to feed her and comb her hair and give her every attention. They loved her so; it was a privilege. Tho, in seeing her suffer often they could scarcely repress the tears. All courage is not on battle fields or those who face the cannon's mouth. It required more courage every day for this little woman to live than it did to enter battle. She kept her own worries, pains and sorrows tucked in so tightly that those about her only knew cheer and happiness. Although a slow and painful process, she never failed to write to her son, Harold, who lived in Kansas City, and her loved ones in the East. Friends received dainty notes of appreciation for every kindness done. It was just possible for her to write and she did it. Even to the last illness she kept up with every question of the day; every late magazine and everything in the community. Her alertness and keenness of mind made her bedside a delightful place to visit. She loved children and her greatest joy was the visits of the tiny grandson from Kansas City. Although her anus were not able to hold him, how happy was she when he was laid on her breast. How eagerly she watched for the coming of the little teeth, siting alone time, his first step, his first word. How joyous was she when he wore the first rompers. The mother love was magnified when her grandmother-hood came. It is fine that she was left to enjoy the feel of velvety little cheeks to feel his warm little; body cuddle next to hers, and for her to have the privilege of seeing Harold's son. Hers was a wonderful heart and she loved nearly as much the grandchildren of her beloved neighbor, Mrs. E. J. Kensinger, who brought cheer to the bedside of the invalid, many times each day. How much she enjoyed the babies of Walter and Helen LaHue. Almost as much as her own. She gave sunshine and sunshine came back to her. The funeral services were conducted at the late home Friday afternoon. Burial in Englewood.

Clinton MO - Mrs. Charles E. Lane of near Huntingdale, of one of the oldest and most highly respected families in Henry County, surrendered life, after a valiant fight, at 4:00 p.m. Monday, Dec. 18, 1939, at St. Luke's Hospital, Kansas City, where she had been the past month. Mrs. Lane also in the summer underwent a 1st operation, but not finding the relief she hoped for returned for a second operation the past month. Courageous in the face of terrible pain, sustained in the knowledge of certain parting, she turned bravely to far horizons, faith and love holding either hand. Mary Beaty, daughter of Ben and Louisa Kimsey Beaty of 2 1/2 miles north of Huntingdale, prominent and distinguished, was born Jan. 28 1873, on the old Beaty home farm. Educated in the schools of that section and brought to a knowledge of the Christ in the Corinth Baptist Church, where her membership always remained, she grew to lovely, gracious womanhood. Dainty, pretty, charming, she was also an able musician and hers was a fine noble Christian character. Sept. 8, 1892, she became the bride of Leonard Dunnaway, generally called "Bud." To them were given a son and a daughter, Letha, now Mrs. Jesse Dunn, of Warrensburg, and Royston A. of near Huntingdale, whose fine wife was a second daughter to his mother. Feb. 17, 1922, Mr. Dunnaway died, leaving his family sadly bereft, for the ties that had bound them together had been close. April 4, 1931, Mrs. Dunnaway married Charles E. Lane, and continued making her home on the old Beaty farm. Devoted to her church, she found much time for the Sunday school, the W. M. U., and other activities, spending a great deal of time in the discharge of Christian duties. Thus, hers was a full and rich life, replete in good deeds and kindness, exemplary and worthy of emulation, for to know her was to love her, and loving her, the way to finer living was made plain and easy. She is survived by her son, Royston Dunnaway, and daughter, Mrs. Dunn, above mentioned; two grandchildren, and four brothers, J. J. Beaty of Creighton, Sam Beaty of Alabama; Phineas Beaty of Wilbur, Ore., and Young Beaty of Marcola, Ore. Funeral services were conducted Wednesday at the Corinth Baptist Church.

Clinton MO - Fatal Accident! - While engaged in the daily round of driving and exercising the several herd of horses in keeping at his training barn, our esteemed citizen, Sam Lane met with a fatal accident on Thursday of last week, an accident from which he finally died on Monday at 11 a.m. On Thursday morning, in driving the celebrated horse, "Dr. Rushing", to the fair grounds, the animal became unmanageable and ran away with Mr. Lane, throwing him from the vehicle to the ground with such force as to render him unconscious. He was picked up a short time after by Joe Linn and brought to town. Dr. Gibbins was called and his injuries were pronounced quite serious. He remained unconscious until his death Monday morning. He was born March 12, 1860 in Muskingum County, Ohio and met with the accident on his 36th birthday. He came to Clinton in 1880 and for a time was in the grocery business with W. H. Bledsoe. Later he went into the livery business with S. Blatt; selling out, he gave his attention wholly to the handling of fancy driving and breeding stock, establishing a trading barn. He was married in 1882 to Miss Sallie J. Lindsay, who with three little children, mourn his loss. A brother, Oscar Lane, arrived from the Ohio home in time for the funeral, which was at the family residence.

Clinton MO - Death Come Suddenly to Mrs. S. J. Lane, 77 - Member of One of the Oldest and Most Prominent Families of Henry Co. Dies After Brief Illness - Funeral Monday - Mrs. S. J. Lane followed the tradition of the Lindsay family in her sudden death at 1:19 p.m. Saturday (April 21, 1937). She, though not well, had gone about her usual routine, as actively as was her wont, since a severe illness four years ago. Sick only that morning, her daughters, Mrs. Harry Gilbert and Mrs. Dwight Sayles, were with her, little realizing their ministrations were the last they could give their beloved mother, until shortly before her passing, when the gentle spirit and sweet soul were surrendered and the light of unending morning lighted her face. Mrs. Lane was the last of her father's family, which was the second to settle in Fields Creek Township. Her father, Reuben Taylor Lindsay, and her mother, Margaret Celia Stone, (arriving later) had come from adjoining counties in North Carolina in covered wagons to the vast west. Settling in Henry County it was natural the channel of their lives should cross and they should establish a new home together, which they did five miles northwest of Clinton on the Lindsay farm. At the outset of the war between the states Mr. Lindsay took his slaves and went to Texas, sojourning for the period of the conflict, to return stripped of all his means with only his land remaining and $300 that his wife had saved. The original home, and where Mrs. Lane was born, was a large, rambling log cabin, across the road from the present Lindsay-Spangler farm home, whose foundation R. T. Lindsay had begun before the war. On his return the new home was completed, approached by its long drive and surrounded by fine trees. The old home site in his son's time was the location for two great feed barns, both of which have burned. Sarah Jane Lindsay, only daughter of this prominent and long established Henry County family, was born June 5, 1859, her three brothers, John Stone-Wall, dying as a lad of 17; Reuben Taylor, largest land owner in the county, passing in 1927, and Judge James D. of Jefferson City in 1930. As a girl she was reared in the Southern Methodist faith, attending servicing at the Lindsay chapel in the neighborhood. She attended a private girl's school on North Washington street, Cline, and then went to Howard Payne College, Fayette, Mo., where she was a capable student doing excellent art work. Large crayon portraits of her mother and father, an Italian Shepherd Boy and the head, Beatrice Cenci, are treasured possessions of her children today. At the age of 17 she left school called by the death of her mother, to look after the big farm and help care for the family, quietly assuming the responsibilities, which were heavy for only a girl, yet bravely rising above the disappointment of giving up school, just as through life she rose superior to the many tragedies that beset her pathway. A lovely and talented young woman, she became the bride of Samuel Morris Lane, October 10, 1882, a native Ohio an, who, as a young may of 21, had come to Missouri and had become a Clinton Business man. They established their new home in Clinton, enjoying three residences on North Third street. The home, where she died at 319, the present Schweer place at 313, which Mr. Lane built, and a cottage between that burned some years ago, and where they went to housekeeping. Three daughters and an only son were given their union, all of whom have lived to comfort their sweet and gentle mother but Lindsay Lawrence, who died July 31, 1922. A widow since her 36th year, Mrs. Lane carried on with the resignation and fortitude inherited from resourceful pioneer parents. She was never a vigorous woman, yet her many activities in life kept her days full and rich with industry. Before her husband's death, her fine alto voice was heard in the church choir and her home was often the scene of their weekly practice. With succeeding years her children took her place in music circles, and as her granddaughters, now the third generation, to sing and play in the organ loft, lift their voices in praise, so it raised her spirit Heavenward as nothing else could do. Her church, of which she was the oldest active Clinton member, brought her peace through the years. She was faithful in attendance, a member of the missionary society and a great Bible student, loving its beautiful words and drawing strength from its promises. She was also a member of the ladies Sunday school class and after her passing, one of her daughters found the marked passages, where she had been preparing the lesson for the Sabbath she did not spend mid earthly scenes. Mrs. Lane was a member of the Clinton Shakespeare class where her splendid mind and ready wit mad an entertaining contribution to the group study. From its organization till its inactive days, she was a loyal member of the U.D. C., giving of her time and means to further its work, beloved by every member. She was also a member of the Coterie many years. Mrs. Lane's was a well balance life, with mind and hands never idle. Homemaking was a joy for she always looked ahead, planning for a garden and flowers or making quilts - one which she had pieced and quilted this winter stands in the frames, evidence of her industry. She seemed never to grow old but kept an enthusiasm and interest in her grandchildren and their activities that was unusual in one of her years. Her life, like a benediction, will continue to bless, though her lips are still. Surviving Mrs. Lane was her two daughters, Mrs. Harry Gilbert and her four children, Sarah Margaret, Lucille, Helen and Harry Robert, Jr.; Mrs. Dwight R. Sayles and three children, Dwight R. Jr., Samuel Lane and Margaret Lindsay; and son, S. Morris Lane, who had made his home with his mother this winter, comforting and caring for her, and his four children, Elizabeth Lane Wagoner, Hylda, Jane and Taylor Lindsay, and Robert, whose shocking death in 1930 was a great sorrow; Mrs. Flavia Lindsay Calvird, a double cousin, and Mrs. Mary Doyle of Kansas City, Mo., cousin and three nieces, Mrs. James S. Spangler, Clinton, Mrs. Burnett Goss, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Mrs. Kathryn Wilson of St. Louis. The funeral services were conducted at the M.E. church, South Monday afternoon. Four kinsmen, C. W. Gaines, Judge C. A. Calvird, James S. Spangler and Dwight Lane, also C. W. England and Benson Holcomb serve as pall bearers.

Clinton MO - Charles W. Langford died at his home on East Ohio street at 7:15 a.m. Thursday, April 7, 1927, with poisoning that resulted from influenza. He had suffered an attack of the flu about six weeks previous to his death, got up and able to look after his business when he suffered a relapse, going into acute pleural pneumonia, two weeks before his death. Later the poisoning developed which baffled the skill of the trained nurse and several of the best physicians, including a specialist. Charles Wesley, son of J. A. and C. A. Langford, was born March 11th, 1881, in Ray county, Missouri. The family came to Henry county in the spring of 1891. He was married to Nellie Gilbert, January 19, 1909. Four children were given to this union - Zelona 17, Denver 16, James Henry 11, and Francis 7. His wife departed this life July 31, 1919. He also leaves his father J. A. Langford; two brothers - Elza of Warrensburg; Ora of Leeton; two sisters - Mrs. J. L. Kimes, north of Clinton, and Mrs. Joe Kinyon, West Franklin street, Clinton. His wife died when the youngest son was but six weeks old. He had kept his family together with the help of his daughter Zelona, who has mothered the household since she was but a wee girl herself. Mr. Langford was an exceptionally good business man. During the earlier life was a farmer and stockman, later went into other business and at the time of his death was one of the partners of the L. & H. Chevrolet Co. He provided well for his children in every way. When about 20 years of age he was converted during a revival held by Rev. Van Buskirk at the old Comer church, near Quarles. He was raised in one of those fine Christian homes and his religious training was the best so that when he went to the Northwest he became superintendent of a Sunday School there. He endeavored to always give his children the best possible guidance, saw that they attended Sunday School, and other services of the church. His own life was honorable, wholesome and clean, giving his wife devoted care during her lifetime. He remained true to her until death took him to heaven and to her. All know it was a happy reunion as he ever missed her and thought of her. He left his children a heritage worth while - that of a clean character, one of which they can always be proud. Our hearts go out to these orphaned children, for life will never be the same as if they had been raised in a home of their own. Relatives will do all possible to make up the loss of their parents and the Comforter will in time heal the wounds of grief. All the friends of Charley and his wife will help smooth life's pathway for these children. At present the three older children are with their grandmother Mrs. Henry Gilbert on East Green Street. Francis is with his aunt Mrs. J. L. Kimes near Quarles. The funeral services were conducted at the Presbyterian church Friday morning. Interment in Englewood cemetery.

Daily Democrat, Clinton MO - Dorothy Irene Ruth, the youngest of six children of John Alvin Ruth and Myrtle Marie Bohrn Ruth, was born July 8, 1936, in Polley, Wisconsin, and died at the Liberty Hospital in Liberty on July 8, 1991. She grew to young womanhood in Deepwater, graduating from Deepwater High School in the class of 1956. As a baby she was nicknamed "Tootsie" by her beloved "Poppy" and this name stuck to her throughout her life. She was saved and baptized at the age of 16 years and became a member of the First Baptist Church of Deepwater, later moving her membership to the Lawson Baptist Church in Ray County. In May of 1956, she was united in marriage to Richard Lantz and they made their home in Kansas City for many years. To this union three children were born. A daughter, Penney and twins, Ricky and Debra. She was preceded in death by her parents. John and Myrtle Ruth; two brothers, Leslie and Delbert Ruth. and a sister, Hazel Foster.

Ruth of Steelville; eight grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and a host of friends. She was a homemaker and very gifted at arranging flowers. With her sincere concern for older people, she was a natural to work caring for them in nursing homes and this she did, working at the Kendallwood Trails Nursing Center as long as her health permitted. Tootsie was a person who knew how to have fun and enjoyed life to the fullest. She had a big old heart that reached out and covered all of her family and her friends. She was the first one there to comfort in times of sorrow and the first one there to celebrate in times of happiness. She was a happy-go-lucky person with a contagious smile and always in the mood for having fun. It is hard to think of her without smiling at some joke she had made, or something she had done for a laugh. She wouldn't have wanted people to remember her with long faces. She was a happy person and that is the way she would want to be remembered. Funeral services were conducted at Pritchard Funeral Home in Excelsior Springs on July 11, 1991. Burial was in Maple Hill Cemetery in Kansas City, Kansas.
