Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Russo and Lubonir Shyshka. Lubonir died in a plane crash when Cookie was 3 weeks old. Her mother, Rosemary, remarried Joe Wildermuth. Her family once lived in Berlin, Germany, before coming to Alexandria, Virginia, where Cookie lived as a teenager and graduated high school from T.C. Williams High School in 1964. Cookie was then accepted to American University in Washington, D.C., but decided to become a mother instead. She married Roger Golt, who fathered her three children. After their divorce, she and her three children drove a Volkswagen bug across the U.S. to settle in Nashville, Indiana, in 1976. They first lived on Tuck A Way Ridge, then shortly moved to Artist Drive, where Cookie lived for the past 41 years. In Nashville, Cookie met the love of her life, Steve Smith, and they married on April 8, 1981. Steve passed away from a brain aneurysm in 1994, and was buried in Greenlawn Cemetery in Nashville.Cookie did everything she could to build a loving, caring home for all who entered it.

Howard Chasanow, judge on Maryland Court of Appeals, dies at 79 - Washington Post

Saturday, April 08, 2017

College Park; a daughter from his first marriage, Andrea Gentle of London; three sisters, former Post food critic Phyllis Richman of Washington, Myrna Chasanow of Cheverly, Md., and Ruth Heitin of Alexandria; and two grandsons.Around the Prince George’s County Courthouse, Judge Chasanow liked to recount “the comma that saved a life.”A condemned man, the judge said, was en route to his execution when a telegram from the governor arrived. It read: “Pardon, impossible to execute.” He was spared.Only later did the warden discover there had been a typographical error. This was what had been intended: “Pardon impossible to execute.” The inadvertent comma had saved the condemned man’s life and the state had repealed the death penalty before the warden discovered the error.In May 1979, Judge Chasanow faced a similar situation in a death penalty case, declaring in court that his decision had to be based on “grammar and legislative intent,” and he said he stayed up most of the night poring through old grammar books.The defendant, William Joseph Parker, a transient Prince George’s County fireman, had been convicted of murder and rape. The relevant Maryland law allowed the death penalty for a conviction of murder while committing “rape or a sexual offense in the first degree.”Parker was convicted of murder and second-degree rape. Because there was no comma in the statute after the word rape, Judge Chasanow concluded the death penalty was not applicable.He sentenced the man to life in prison.Read more Washington Post obituaries...
