Obituaries

Robert D. Offenhauer

Robert D. Offenhauer, Ph.D., 89, Bradenton, formerly of Pennington, N.J., and grew up in Ohio, died Oct. 30.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov 10,  at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 2200 26th St. W., Bradenton. The Good Earth Crematory in Bradenton handled arrangements.

Mr. Offenhauer was a research chemist. He was multitalented: he farmed, grew rare trees, designed and personally built several houses, wrote stories, plays and mysteries, and was long active and an honorary lifetime board member of the Island Players in Anna Maria. He was funny, politically astute, athletic and famous for his granola and muffins.

Survivors include wife Catherine; children William, Priscilla and Daniel; and granddaughters Alexa and Ashley.

 

Reba Tipton Spangler

Reba Tipton Spangler, 85, of Bradenton, died Nov. 1. She was born in Radford, Va., and she had lived in Bradenton until 1965 when she returned to Virginia, and then returned to Bradenton in 2000.

Mrs. Spangler was a chemistry and physics teacher at Southeast High School, Bradenton. She was a member and Past Worth Matron of the Order of Eastern Star, a member of Retired Seniors Volunteer Program in Virgina. She was a member of the former Island Baptist Church on Anna Maria Island and attended the Bayshore Church of the Nazarene in Bradenton.

Visitation was Nov. 3 at Shannon Funeral Home, Westview Chapel, Bradenton, followed by visitation and services in Narrows, Va., and interment in Pearisburg, Va. Shannon Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.

Memorials may be made to the American Heart Association and online condolences may be made at shannonfuneralhomes.com.

She is survived by son Garland Stuart and wife Carolyn of Bradenton; sister Betty Ufkus of Muncie, Ind., and three grandchildren, Natalie Jason and Clay.
