Jeri Shick: 1956-2016 - Toledo Blade

Monday, December 05, 2016

She was declared cancer-free over the summer, but the disease returned and began to spread.Mrs. Shick was born in New York City March 28, 1956. She graduated from Oak Harbor High School in 1974, and graduated summa cum laude from Bowling Green State University. She obtained her MBA from the University of Toledo.Shortly after college, the couple met while they were both working at the Toledo-based Burroughs Corporation in 1981. They were married for 28 years.Mrs. Shick started Advanced Development Associates, a marketing firm to help doctors and their practices. Recently, she assisted in marketing efforts for nursing homes.In addition to her day job, Mrs. Shick traded antique paintings.“She always had a passion for art,” Mr. Shick said. “She could paint. She really loved antique oil paintings. When the Erie Street market was fully functional, she had a booth there.”Perhaps Mrs. Shick's strongest passions were sports and helping others. She incorporated both elements into the annual Border Battle Bash, which benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Toledo.Fans gather each year to watch the Ohio State and Michigan football game. Mr. Shick said 600 people attended this year, raising more than $60,000. The event has raised more than $400,000 since its inception.“I always say we got divorced once a year because I'm an Ohio State fan, and she was a Michigan fan,” Mr. Shick said. “We bet a dollar every year, and whoever won got the dollar. You had to write what the score was and put it on the fridge.”Mrs. Shick also worked with the United Way, Mobile Meals, and especially had an affinity for helping veterans.Mr. Shick said hi...

Slidell man's passion for iris flowers blossoms into garden on Bayou Liberty Road: Military Road - The Times-Picayune

Monday, September 19, 2016

Louisiana and he has examples of each in his iris garden located on Bayou Liberty Road. He and Kathleen purchased the property in 2004 after moving to Oak Harbor in Slidell. He needed the lot to have enough space to accommodate his growing collection. To date, the iris garden located behind an inconspicuous fence has more than 5,000 plants encompassing 150 different varieties.Walking through the property, the eye skips from bloom to colorful bloom of every imaginable hue. You can understand then how the work iris comes from the Greek for rainbow. Trahan's garden includes Iris fulva, or the Copper Iris, sporting their brick red flowers and examples of Iris nelsonii, the Abbeville Iris, a rare plant known to live in the wild only in a small area about six miles south of Abbeville, Louisiana. He is especially excited that a few of this specific type have sported a rare yellow bloom."At one time, this particular plant was thought to be extinct. It is now just considered very rare," Trahan said.Each plant is tagged with a hand-made metal marker featuring the plant's official name. Benny is at the Bayou Liberty garden each day. Kathleen visits to help with the weeding and to bring lunch that they share at an umbrella shaded table among the flowers.Since iris thrive in marsh and swamp environs, Trahan has created artificial swamps using plastic tarps, pots and an extensive watering system he installed by hand. Frogs sing from between the plants when you walk by the constructed paddies."These plants need a lot of water. We have some planted in the ground, but they really do well in these water paddies," he said.The garden has been a family project many times since its creation. Hurricane Katrina took out more than a dozen pine trees on the property and caused iris plants in pots to float down the road and into the neighbor's yards. One saving grace from that time is the brackish water did little to actually harm the plants themselves.After an extensive illness, Trahan said the weeds in the garden were higher than the plants themselves. It was then that their children and their spouses and their grandchildren pitched in to make things right."We had all 20 of them out here for three Sundays in a row, weeding and cleaning it up," Kathleen sa...
