D. Loucetta Rathgens

February 27th, 1934 - May 9th, 2020

D. Loucetta Rathgens, age 86, passed away Saturday, May 9th, 2020 at her home in Hamilton, Ohio of an apparent heart attack. Lucy was born on February 27th, 1934 to Roscoe and Lena Maude Cottey. She became a Christian and was baptized in the Augusta Methodist Church as a child, but credited her Emmaus Walk to much of her spiritual growth. Lucy graduated from Vevay, Indiana High School class of ‘51 and proudly graduated with honors from Miami University and from the University of Cincinnati. Lucy retired from Fernald Nuclear Energy after 42 years of service, being the first female to work in production as a supervisor. Additionally, she sold real estate for Bowling Realty and was a tax preparer. Upon retirement she spent most of her time in Estero, FL. She was a member of the Hamilton UMC, the Estero, Florida UMC, Eastern Star and ABWA. Lucy served on many committees and was the church treasurer for many years.  She volunteered as a tutor and tax preparer for the senior citizens. She could dance, bowl, play golf, play bridge, cribbage, euchre and always did so very competitively. Lucy was beautiful, intelligent and a very capable person in every way.

In 2009, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and many years later, leukemia. She faced it so courageously. Never once did she say, "why me?" A couple of years ago, she was tested for dementia and was a little insulted to think they questioned her intelligence. She turned up at one appointment with a notepad and pen. She told the doctor she brought them to insure she answered his questions correctly. Such a witty sense of humor!  When she could no longer drive, she would say Richard was driving miss Daisy (hence "D.").

Lucy leaves behind her husband of 46 years, Richard Rathgens; one daughter, Deborah L. (Daniel) Kerinuk; two grandchildren, Andrea (Curtis) Kerinuk and D. Andrew Kerinuk III; and the apple of her eye, her great granddaughter, Alexa Joy Kerinuk; her siblings, Vicky (Jackie) Dwelly and Billy (Loretta) Cottey and their families; her sister-in-law, Debbie (Dave) Baker and her family; her step-children, Christopher, Maria and Veronica; and many other family and friends. Lucy was preceded in death by her parents and her sisters, Margie and Alma.

David Scott Taylor, aged 53 of Hamilton, passed away on Tuesday, May 5, 2020. David was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on April 30, 1967 to Charles and Betty (nee Ray) Taylor. David was a devoted father and husband. Even during times of hardship, he made sure we were taken care of. There was never a doubt of how much he loved his family. He was an incredibly kind and caring husband and dad.

David was known for his frankness; he was never afraid to voice his opinion on things. His ability to speak honestly and tell the truth, even if it hurt your feelings, was one of his best qualities. He loved to joke and had a damn good sense of humor. David was a lover of classic cars, guns and cooking. He was also known for his strong personal faith in Christ, though he was never a church-going kind of person. He had a strong relationship with God. One of his favorite sayings during times of uncertainty was "I have faith." He was unbelievably strong and he always had an answer.

David is survived by his wife of 27 years, Carolyn Taylor; his children, Owen and Betty Taylor; his sisters, Cathy Taylor, Kim Audretch (Robert), Terri Houston (Dave), Wendy Canfield (Terry); and brothers, Mike Taylor and Greg Taylor; and many nieces and nephews.

Donald E. Jones

July 13th, 1932 - April 29th, 2020

My grandpa was a great man.He lived 87 fulfilling years, He was a fighter, literally and figuratively. The former Golden Gloves boxer lived 15 years after heart bypass surgery and the last several years with COPD. In the last three years he had broken both of his hips.  You would never know he was in pain, because he always said he felt great.  He was as happy go-lucky as they come.

Grandpa had many passions, but one more so than others. He loved the Cincinnati Reds.  He never missed a game, something he and I shared. We could talk for hours about the Reds, as he shared the history of the franchise. Grandpa grew up down the street from Joe Nuxall, and was friends with his brother. He often bragged that Joe Nuxall signed his yearbook. His passion for the Reds ran deep. He talked about the glory days of the Big Red Machine and how Concepcion would be in the Hall of Fame if he had played for the Yankees. Bench was the greatest catcher of all time, and Charlie Hustle belonged in the Hall of Fame. He spent the last 40 years hoping for another World Series. His fandom never wavered. He watched every game, oftentimes falling asleep to the sounds of baseball. He loved baseball, and he loved the Reds.

Every summer my family would go to my grandparents house in Pittsburgh.  It was a three story stone house, when I was a kid I thought it was a castle. He worked hard for that house, he worked for General Motors for 50 years. Grandpa was the life of the party and a kid at heart. While in Pittsburgh, we would spend the days playing cards, building with legos, and playing croquet, and end the day watching a baseball game. I miss those days. We took many vacations with my grandparents going putt-putt and swimming late into the night. He was never too tired to keep us entertained.

Grandpa spent the last 10 years struggling to get around, and often used a cane. However, on a cruise to celebrate my grandparents 50th anniversary, at the young age of 81, he threw his can aside to shimmy to the floor as the DJ played "Low" by Flo Rider.  He even did a couple of push ups for good measure. My mom, her sister, and grandma looked on in disbelief. That didn’t stop Grandpa, he hopped up as everyone in the room looked on; and announced he was Jitterbug  The next day several people walked up to him and said, "Are you Jitterbug?" He answered, "As a matter of fact, I am." From that day forward whenever I would call Grandpa, he would pick up the phone and say hello.  I would say, "Is this Jitterbug," and he would say, "Why yes, it is."

Grandpa lived a great life and it ended no different.  24 hours before Grandpa had a  stroke, he was on vacation with his wife and daughter in Florida. In the middle of a pandemic, he made the decision he was going home. He wanted to go home to Hamilton, Ohio and could not be convinced to change his plans. He flew home on April 25th and had a stroke later that evening.  He was home, where he wanted to be.

Don is survived by his wife, Kate; his daughters Karla (Gregg) and Krystal (Chris); grandchildren Shannon (Cory) and Greg as well as many nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by his parents  Elmer and Caroline; sister Carolyn; and brother Bill.

The family thinks the nurses and staff of Fort Hamilton Hospital for their exceptional care.
