thanks
Thanks so much for your work. I have been dabbling in geneology via Ancestry.com for several years now, but was great to fins so many of my father's family obits compiled since I last checked! Great to have the extra details.

Bertile Queneau
Hello again, Mary,

I uncovered some information on Bertile Queneau tonight that would be good for the findagrave on her. It is about favorite teachers at

http://www.brynmawrschool.org/page.aspx?pid=812

Myra Nan Rosenfeld Little ’59

Bertile M. Queneau was the 1959 Class Teacher as well as my favorite teacher at Bryn Mawr. I had come to the Bryn Mawr School in 1954 from Boston, speaking children’s French which I had learned from Colette et ses Frčres. Bertile M. Queneau taught me how to think and write in French. Her teaching was so outstanding and her devotion to her students so strong that she instilled in me a love for the culture and country of France which has been a decisive factor in my life. I have devoted my professional life to studying and writing about French art and architecture. Miss Queneau was rigorous, but she was also a very compassionate and enthusiastic person. She called us “my little chickadees” which was particularly endearing, and she often exclaimed to encourage us “Lead on MacDuff.”

The most exciting part of my four years at Bryn Mawr was the Advanced Placement Course in French which I took with Francette Girard Roeder during my senior year. We read and discussed the major writers of France. It was much more than a survey of French literature. It was a history of French culture, history, and philosophy. I decided then and there that I wanted to live and study in France. I went on to have a double major in French literature and art history at Sarah Lawrence College. I could never have studied for a licence-čs-lettres, a French degree, at the Institut d’Art et d’Archéologie of the Sorbonne, nor could I have spent my professional life working in French in Montreal, first as a university professor and then as museum curator, if Bertile M. Queneau had not been so exacting when I was studying French. My jobs in Montreal brought me often to France to do research, attend conferences, and organize exhibitions with French colleagues. It was in Montreal that I met my husband.

Bertile M. Queneau hardly ever spoke to us about her youth. Unfortunately I lost contact with her after my family moved from Baltimore to New York City in 1960. I thought of her often. She came from a very unusual and international family, something that I had always suspected, and which was confirmed when I read the full-page obituary of her father in the New York Times in 1972. I just recently located her brother Bernard Queneau who is a very active and with-it 98 year old jogger. He has a site on Facebook, and several videos on the Web. He lives in Pittsburgh with his wife Esther, and has a great deal of enthusiasm and humor, just like his sister Bertile. He most graciously shared with me some family history and information about Bertile M. Queneau’s career, which I have sent to the Bryn Mawr School archives.

Bertile M. Queneau was the Philadelphia-born daughter of a French father, Augustin-Léon-Jean Queneau, a zinc metallurgist who worked early in his youth with President Herbert Hoover in Australia. Her American mother Abbie Jean Blaisdell Queneau was teacher from Minneapolis. Bertile M. Queneau had a dramatic and peripatetic life in Europe from 1912 to 1925. The family moved to Ličge, Belgium, when her father became a consultant to a company producing zinc. When the German army came through Ličge in 1914, the family escaped to Newcastle-on-Tyne, England, where all six children obtained a good British education. After the War, the Queneau family lived in Peebles, Scotland, Wimbledon, England, and southern France. When Bertile M. Queneau arrived back in the United States in 1925, she had an English accent. Her education in England was probably responsible for the frequently used expression “Lead on, Macduff. ” She received her B.A. from Barnard College, an M. A. in French from Middlebury College, and another M.A. in Italian from Yale University. After teaching at secondary schools in Dallas, Tacoma, and New Haven, she came to The Bryn Mawr School in 1945, and taught until her retirement in 1974.

Her siblings all had distinguished careers, like their father, and have contributed much to American life and culture. Her brother Bernard was the Chief Metallurgist and General Manager of U.S. Steel. Another brother Paul is Professor Emeritus of Metallurgy at Dartmouth College’s Thayer School of Engineering, and her sister Marguerite was a Professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, and a nutritionist who worked for the City of New York and the United Nations.

I am very grateful for having studied with Bertile M. Queneau, an outstanding and dedicated teacher of French, who had such a long lasting influence on my life.
Silvine Marbury Farnell ’59

I can't resist adding just one little anecdote to the tributes to Miss Queneau. In Main III, she caught me cheating on a quiz--saw me surreptitiously looking up a word I didn't know. After class, she quietly took me aside. She told me she understood why I had done it, that I just couldn't bear not knowing all the answers. But I must never do it again. I loved her for understanding what drove me, for not condemning me, and for giving me clear guidance. I never cheated again. The word was "reussir," "to succeed."

Vi Graveure Patek ’62
Miss Queneau absolutely terrified me, but taught me so much French that I ended up being a French major!

Helen Loch Barber ’62

I think that I remember Miss Queneau very well with her “little chickadees” and her “wash-disher!” I will never forget that horrible day when college acceptances were coming in, and I had to sit through her class waiting to hear if I had been accepted at Goucher…Not having been being smart enough to apply to more than one college, it was terribly painful. Her training has helped me greatly even after all of these years when I have to translate for someone from France.

Kate Hamilton Harrison ’53

My favorite teacher was Bertile Queneau. I loved the French language and enjoyed Miss Queneau very much - she was tough and demanding but very fair and I really felt that I was accomplishing something if I could get a good grade from her. As far as being a good influence is concerned, I think the whole atmosphere at the school, rather than one individual, was responsible for encouraging me to always try to do my best - there was a standard to be maintained.

Sally Mirick ’61
The teacher who had a profound effect on my life was Bertile Queneau, my French teacher in my senior year at Bryn Mawr. In this class we read Sartre, Camus, Anouilh, and passionately explored the ideas of French Existentialism. It was probably the most intellectually exciting class I ever took, to the point of making my first year at college a bit of a letdown. I did end up majoring in philosophy and at this late time of my life have joined the local Alliance Francaise. The greatest gift she gave to me, however, was to make me feel good about myself. Good at taking intelligence tests, SAT ‘s, merit scholarship exams etc, I was a mediocre student even though I tried hard. Not much was known about learning disabilities in those days and it was on in my 50’s that I was diagnosed with ADD. She did not judge me and opened up a world of ideas. I know her recommendation got me into Barnard, her alma mater, in spite of my grades. I remain in her debt.


And I have submitted another request to have the New Hampshire cemetery record for brother Paul to be connected to the family. Just because you also find the family history fascinating, you may want to look at these web sites about Paul:

In addition there is interesting information about Paul at http://rand-wilson.com/obituaries/obit_view.php?id=41
and

and

Any idea on how to connect Roland and his wife without graves?

I've gotten the father's record updated but haven't worked on the mother's yet. On Saturday I head to Mom's and we will work more on (hopefully) pretty much finalizing the entry for Bernie.

Augustin Leon Jean Queneau
Hi Mary,

Thanks for putting the information link onto Dr. Bernard's record. I'm just getting started at really updating his record, and I must have ten of those in already. And I still haven't gotten to the Distinguished Eagle Scout award and most of the Lincoln Highway sites. I'll be with my mother in early January and I hope to finish up the tribute at that time.

Bernie's father's name should be corrected. Augustine is the feminine version. I believe he was born in Paris, France. He and two friends moved to Canada to establish a horse farm, but before they got the barn built, during an unusually cold winter, the horses all died. The other two partners returned to France, but being an orphan, Augustin headed south to Minneapolis where he was a French tutor for students at the University.

As you have on Marguerite's record, Augustin was in the French Cavalry during WWI.

At http://engineering.columbia.edu/bernard-queneau-metallurgist I found this information about Augustin as well as Paul and Marguerite:

Bernie can boast that Columbia Engineering is in his genes: his father was Augustin L. Queneau, Class of 1901, mining engineering, who received the 1960 Egleston Medal for distinguished engineering achievement for his work as the designer and developer of processes for the recovery of non-ferrous and rare metals.

Bernie’s brother, Paul Queneau, AB ’31, BS ’32, ME ’33, known for his fundamental discoveries in the field of process metallurgy, is professor emeritus at Dartmouth’s Thayer School of Engineering, where he taught from 1971 to 1987. His sister Bertile graduated from Barnard in 1930, and his sister Marguerite obtained her MA from Columbia in 1941.

Bernard Russell Queneau

Mary,

Here is another update.

Born 14 July 1912 in Liege, Belgium
Died 7 Dec 2014 at Providence Point in Mount Lebanon, Allegheny County, PA

The main thing for this entry is to include the link to another web site as shown below. You may want to include information from the life chronology or his professional papers. Mostly, though, I think it is good to have people follow the link.

1928 Lincoln Highway Trip, include the reference to this web site:
http://www.lincoln-highway-museum.org/BSA-1928/BQ-Index.html

This site also has a good chronological array of the main points of his life. There are pictures of Bernie in 1928. Letters and his diary are included on the site. President-to-be, then Lieutenant Dwight David Eisenhower led the army contingent that the boy scouts traveled with. After reaching San Francisco, the boy scouts went south to Hollywood and met some stars. The return trip was not as well documented. The site ends with a listing of 3 professional writings by Dr. Bernard Russell Queneau.

From this I see it was 2003 that Esther and he actually traveled the Lincoln Highway with the 85th anniversary group doing the coast-to-coast trip; they drove their own car on that journey. Esther (past president of the national group) was Bernie's assigned hostess in 2002 when Bernie dedicated the new marker in San Francisco at that year's conference. They had met earlier at a Lincoln Highway Conference Esther arranged in Mansfield, OH (she was then President of the Ohio branch); he was the guest speaker that year, but his second wife was still living then, and they did not stay in touch.

Bernard Russell Queneau
Hi Mary,

Here is the eulogy that was delivered by grandson Kirtland Marsh:

Eulogy – Bernard Russell Queneau
July 14, 1912 – December 7, 2014
It is hard to put into words what Grandpa meant to me, and what he meant to all of us, but I’ll do my best. I sat down this week to find the best way to write a eulogy, and I found there are three main ways to do it:
Number 1) Chronological life history – telling the person’s life story starting with childhood, and working through all the notable events during their life. PAUSE. [look at watch]. I think we can agree that Grandpa’s 102 years would make this one impractical. We would be here a while.
Number 2) Three main points – this is a common convention for speeches about any subject. But again, how do you choose three things about Grandpa’s life? I started a list, I tried to choose a few anecdotes, but there are just too many. This one isn’t practical either.
Number 3) Find a theme. This one didn’t seem easy at first. But as I reflected on his life, reading the recent stories in the newspapers about him, the wonderful tributes that have been written, something occurred to me. While it is remarkable that he lived over 102 years, what is more remarkable is how he lived those years. So what I think of when I remember him, and what I want to talk about this morning, is “living well.”

How to capture the way Grandpa lived well? We might as well start at the beginning. His life began in Liege, Belgium on Bastille Day, 1912, born to a French father and an American mother. In light of how his story began, it seems fitting to see if the French language has any sayings to capture the richness of how Grandpa lived his life… It turns out it does.
A celebrated French phrase, that in 1912 would have been familiar to Grandpa’s father and their neighbors in Liege was this: Mangez bien, riez souvent, aimez beaucoup. This means: "Eat well, laugh often, love abundantly." Sounds like BRQ.
As anyone who knew him could attest, to spend time with Queneau was to Eat Well. He celebrated food, and he delighted in the social part of dining. Everyone here today can think of a wonderful meal he cooked for you, or a meal in a restaurant where the staff all knew him, and were thrilled to see him. He ate well.
Laughing often is also part of what made his life so rich. There was nothing quite so gratifying as getting a big hearty belly laugh from him, his sense of humor was always with him. Going through old photos, you see him dressed as the Energizer Bunny for his 95th birthday, because he kept going and going. (insert anecdote?) I found a photo of Grandpa and Esther posed together as Tango dancers during a trip to South America, both giving their best dancing with the stars glamour gaze. And, still hard to believe, I found a picture of Grandpa dressed up as an old lady to help my mom’s friends celebrate her 50th birthday. The invitation said dress up like an old lady...so he did. No one had more fun than Grandpa did, or knew better the value of laughter.
Finally, loving abundantly: the love he had for others, his family and his friends, and even those he didn’t know, was one of Grandpa’s defining traits. Reading his letters, hearing him talk about his own life, his love for his family shines through above everything. He would tell you that too. He also had wonderful, rich friendships that spanned decades, and crossed generations. Those of you here today are a testament to that. And he loved people in a general sense. I saw this reading the Boy Scouts tributes to him recently, and learning about the volunteer work and philanthropy he did over the years. It’s even there when I remember times when I was an embarrassed teenager and he would strike up a conversation with a complete stranger sitting at the next table in a restaurant…the common thread that tied it all together was his genuine love for other people. He loved abundantly.
Mangez bien, riez souvent, aimez beaucoup. It starts to paint a picture of how Grandpa lived well. But there was more. The French have another saying, taken from their literature: “Il vaut mieux faire, que dire.” - “Doing…is better than saying.” Grandpa was a doer. His vitality, and his nearly boundless energy were a marvel to everyone. And it wasn’t just his energy that was so impressive. His force of will was something to behold. Particularly.. if you were on the wrong side of it. Am I right? If Commander Queneau decided something needed to happen, well.. it always seemed to happen. He was an excellent speaker and writer, but Grandpa preferred action to words. The adventures and the accomplishments of his life are the evidence.
He also knew.. all too well... the fragility and preciousness of life. Grandpa had more than his share of sorrows in this world. One of the ironies of living as long and as well as he did, is that few other people will do the same. He had to say a lot of goodbyes. Still, he didn’t dwell in the past, and he embraced the day he was given. He found love and happiness with Esther in his nineties. He travelled the world. He attended parties in his honor, and he shared the wisdom of his life. He knew exactly how tough this world could be, but he was too tough to let it stop him. Grandpa knew what was important, and what wasn’t important, and he lived his life accordingly. He did things his way…and he had a lot of fun, didn’t he?
Which brings me to a final French saying. In the words of his ancestors, it is a reminder passed down through the ages, that I know he would echo: “La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin.” - "Life is too short…to drink bad wine."
[pause]
We’ll miss you Grandpa. We’ll never forget you.

Bernard Russell Queneau
Hi Mary,

I'm going to have a few days to do a little work on genealogy. There will be more to load to Bernie's record, but the long version of the obituary makes a good start. I don't know whether you want to keep control of the record, or transfer it to me.

"Bernard Russell Queneau of Mt. Lebanon passed away Sunday, December 7, 2014, at the age of 102. He was born near Liege, Belgium, to Augustin Leon Jean Queneau, who was born in Paris, France, and Abbie Jean Blaisdell from Minneapolis, Minnesota. The family lived in England, Scotland and France until 1925, when they moved to Minneapolis. In 1928 BRQ graduated high school in New Rochelle NY and became an Eagle Scout.

Queneau enjoyed his peripatetic upbringing as the son of a mining engineer. Young Bernie entertained recuperating soldiers of WWI, rode his Corsican pony in the hills of southern France, attended Belmont boarding school for boys near London, and spent a summer on a dairy farm in Minnesota. Many of his best memories were formed through Scouting, particularly the 1928 trip from NY to CA on the Lincoln Highway with three other Eagle Scouts.

Queneau received his BS and Masters in Engineering from Columbia University. He attended the University of Minnesota and received his Ph.D. in Metallurgy there in 1936. He accepted a position as an assistant professor of metallurgy at Columbia. Realizing war was coming, he signed up for the Navy Reserves in 1939. He was called to active duty in June 1941. He served at the Armor and Projectile Proving Ground in Dahlgren VA. He helped develop safer airplane seats for pilots and specified the steel used in ships' armor plate. He became head of the lab and Navy Commander.

Following the war, Dr. Queneau again worked with US Steel at South Works, Chicago; Duquesne Works, Pittsburgh; Tennessee Coal and Iron Division, Birmingham, Alabama; and corporate offices in Pittsburgh, where he was general manager in charge of quality assurance for 26 mills. He most enjoyed those positions that called for him to be active in the mills and solve problems with the quality of the product. He truly loved his work in the "steel game." He was a fellow of the American Society for Metals and was awarded the Edgar C. Bain Award. He was a distinguished member of the Iron & Steel Society.

Dr. Queneau retired in 1977. He became technical editor of Iron Age, the Iron & Steel Institute's journal and did consulting work. He was one of the world's experts of metallurgy, traveling to many plants and conferences in other countries. He traveled extensively and volunteered for Meals on Wheels, St. Clair Hospital, and the Book Cellar of Mt. Lebanon Library. He was an avid reader of biographies and WW II events. With his new wife Esther, he crossed the Lincoln Highway again in 1992.

On June 28, 1941, Dr. Queneau married Henrietta C. Nye of Minneapolis. They had three daughters. In 1974 he married Mary Stahling Goettge. In 2003 he married Esther McNaull Oyster. Dr. Queneau was predeceased by his parents, his wives, Henrietta and Mary, and his five brothers and sisters, Roland, Marguerite, Bertile, Paul and Francoise.

Dr. Queneau is survived by his daughters: Jean (Hugh) Davis of North Haven CT, Marguerite Marsh of Tacoma WA, and Anne Queneau of Washington DC; six grandchildren: Abigail Marsh/Jeremy Joseph, Washington DC, Kirtland Marsh (Carolyn), Mark (Kiowa) Biddle, Pt. Reyes CA, Kathleen Muravnik of Centerbrook CT; step-grandchildren Andrew (Carolina Mejio) Chapel Hill NC, and Jen Davis, NYC. He is survived by 9 great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Marguerite Queneau Scholarship Fund at the University of Minnesota (c/o of Dean John R. Finnegan, School of Public Health, 420 Delaware St. S.E., Minneapolis MN 55455-0381); or the Bernard R. Queneau Endowed Fellowship Fund, Dept. of Earth & Environmental Engineering, Columbia University, 662 W. 113th St., NYC, NY 10025"

Robert Champlin
RE: Champlin's in Riverside Cemetery
Mary: Sorry to take so long to reply to your note back in mid Nov. There are several Champlin's buried in Riverside Cemetery: Oren Champlin and wife Mary Jane; their son Edward Arthur Champlin & wife Lottie Amanda; Oscar Perry Champlin & son Arnold Perry Champlin; and then the mysterious John Champlin.
Oliver Perry Champlin was a 6th cousin of Oren Champlin's so these are two pretty separate families who probably had no idea they were related.
The info that John is buried in the infant section means he's not actually buried with either family - so no hint of where he belongs from that.
In looking at the children of both Oren and Oscar, it appears that if John is from one of these Champlin families, he most likely was a son of Oscar. Oscar had at least 11 children born in pretty regular intervals between 1921 & 1946 (all in Brown County). There is a 7 year gap though between the 4th and 5th child and a 4 year gap between #7 & #8. John could well have been born in between on of these pairs.
That's just supposition for now. Hopefully more information will turn up eventually.

Roland, Bernie, Marguerite Queneau
Good morning Mary,

Margot sent that Roland Queneau did Neptune Society. Turns out that is cremation. He may not have a niche anywhere, either.

I did find two items about him. The first one is at http://www.nursing.umn.edu/Foundation/scholarships/UndergraduateGraduate/index.htm :
Alva Wipperman Queneau Memorial Scholarship
Established by the late Roland Queneau in memory of his beloved wife, Alva Wipperman Queneau ('24 BSN), this scholarship is intended to help recruit and retain promising full-time nursing students. at the University of Minnesota.

The second one is at http://blog.lib.umn.edu/mmf/news/scholarships/2008/scholarship-honors-sisters-contributions-to-public-health-nutrition-marguerite-queneau-was-never-inc.html

While it is about the scholarship for Marguerite Queneau at the U of Minn it starts with a picture of my mother Esther McNaull Oyster Queneau and Dr. Bernard Russell Queneau. There are six paragraphs with good details about Marguerite. Then one about the family & parents. Next comes a mention of Roland. The remainder concerns the scholarship.

I definitely would not have a clue as to how we can document Roland if he does not have a grave or a niche.

Hi Mary,

She was born Dorothy Irene Nye. Married a Cargill first and then a Schultz. She was sister to Henrietta C. Nye Queneau. See your entry for her below the next paragraph.

There was another sister, Sarah Elizabeth Nye, born ca 1916. She married first a Manford Robinson and then someone else whose name currently escapes my stepsister. She donated her body to the U of M med school, so there may be no marked grave.

Here's the link for Henrietta's find-a-grave http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=124601273

I think I have it set up now to receive a message from you as a new contributor to find-a-grave.

Also Henrietta C. Nye before marriage. On 28 June 1941 she married Dr. Bernard Russell Queneau.

obituary
Hi Mary,
My stepfather just died and he will be interred with his wife. You documented her grave.
We are writing an obituary. Wondering whether we can publish a short version in the paper and leave a longer version available on the web which will remain available to posterity.
Thus I am contacting you to see whether you would be willing to create a linked find-a-grave entry for him and upload the longer obituary to it?
I am also an amateur genealogist and love when I find these longer tributes.
- Jean

There is a discrepancy between the death date that Lakewood Cemetery has (1927), presumably copied from the death certificate, and the date on the stone (1925). Do you know which is correct?

Thank you so very much for these transfers of my family member memorials. I have pictures and some other details to add as soon as I can figure out what happened to my scanner. Have a very great holiday season. Jon Zarneke

Mary - Thank you so much for the transfer of Edward Miller. I wasn't expecting it, so it was a very pleasant surprise. I appreciate all the edits you've done in the past 2 days for this part of my family. It's so nice to have them gathered together again. --Sheila

Edward and Grace Miller
Hi again, Mary -- Well, I just did a search of South Dakota newspapers and found Grace's obituary. It states that she was buried in Hecla Cemetery. I'm going to assume that she's really there and will be sending edits for her. I can also include her obituary, if you'd like. Let me know. Thank you. --Sheila Hughes
