The Dash Poem
I read of a man who stood to speakat the funeral of his friend.He referred to the dates on her tombstonefrom the beginning...to the end.He noted that first came the date of her birthand spoke of the following date with tears,but he said what mattered most of allwas the dash between those years.For that dash represents all the timethat she spent alive on earth…and now only those who loved herknow what that little line is worth.For it matters not, how much we own;the cars…the house…the cash.What matters is how we live and loveand how we spend our dash.So think about this long and hard…are there things you’d like to change?For you never know how much time is left.That can still be rearrangedIf we could just slow down enoughto consider what’s true and real,and always try to understandthe way other people feel.And be less quick to anger,and show appreciation moreand love the people in our liveslike we’ve never loved before.If we treat each other with respect,and more often wear a smile…remembering that this special dashmight only last a little while.So, when your eulogy’s being readwith your life’s actions to rehash...would you be proud of the things they sayabout how you spent your dash?by Linda EllisIN MEMORY OF:CAROL ALEYWINELONNIE WEAVER AUSTIN JRGEORGE LESLIE BASSWILLIAM BOWERGARY BROWNMICHAEL ROBERT BURNETTDAVID CAMPBELLLILLIAN CARSTARPHENJEFFREY STUART CAVANWILLIAM SPENCER CREWS, JRGAIL CULBRETHJIMMY DARBYJOHN DINGMONMICHAEL DUPRIES PAMELA SUE EMERYSHERYL ANN FOWLERSIDNEY FRIEDMANKEVIN FRYEBENSON GARDNERWILLIAM GEIGERSHARON GLENNCHARLES GRAYVICTORIA GRAYDONOVAN BENNETT HANCOCKJIMMY HARTLEYDONNA HORTON HARVEYKENNY HAUNBRUCE CARLTON HELVESTONELWOOD DANIEL (SONNY) HEMMINGJOSEPH HENRYCHARLEY HILLJACK HILLJOHNETTE BROWN HUTCHISONJAMES JOLLEYCRAIG JONESFELIX JONESRALPH HOWARD JONESBILL LAWRENCEDWIGHT LEEMARILYN JOANNE LEETJERRY LUCASBUDDY MARABLETRAVIS MATHISFRED MASTERSCHARLES PETER McBRIDEJOHN HAROLD MEECEJANE MENEILLYTOMMY PARMERTERJEANETTE PARTINGTONALAN PASSCATHY PERRYVIRGINIA PERRYDONALD LAURIS PERRYALAN POTFAYBRUCE RALPHWILLIAM GORDON RAYOWEN MATHEW ROBARTSKATHERINE RUSSOWAYNE SCHIMMELMANNREBECCA MARIE SCHIRRAWAYNE SEGEEJACK SIGMON JRMARTHA SMITHWALLACE EDWARD SMITHCHARLES DELIOUS STAFFORDWAYNE STEVENSRICHARD TAYLORROGER ALLEN TAYLORLINDA GAIL TERRYJAMES THORSBYJOHN TUBBSWARREN GERALD VANCERONNIE VANNMARTHA VEATCHCAROL WHITEBRUCE WHITTLEREMER CHIP WILSONJAMES GREG WINDERWEEDLELESTER ADAM WINEMILLER, III

REBECCA SCHIRRA BOTTOMS
Rebecca Schirra Bottoms was born December 5, 1950, in Kewanee, Illinois. With her father in the Navy, Becky moved frequently as a child. It wasn't until she happily moved to Bloomfield Hills, Michigan in 1983, that she lived in one place longer than three years.
Becky joined the Navy Nurse Corps in 1971 after going to nursing school, and was stationed at the naval Hospital in Philadelphia, the intake center for Vietnam wounded on the East coast. She then returned to school, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Florida in 1978. After this she devoted her life to the most important thing in the world to her - her husband and children. She was married to Dr. Sidney F. Bottoms for 21 years until his death in 1996. They had three children: Christina Cabeen (Ted), Sid, and Sarah.
After her husband's death, she returned to school to earn a Masters in Library and Information Science from Wayne State University in 2001. From 1996 to 2007, Becky was the library assistant/Librarian at the Cranbrook Upper School. She delighted in the energy and intensity of young adults and sought to make their high school years a bit easier. She was the advisor to the Games and Books Club which gave her more opportunities to spend time with students and share her love of Young Adult literature. Most Friday evenings would find her at school with them, along with a selection of home baked goodies.
Becky enjoyed gardening, hiking, and camping. Some of her favorite memories are from various extended camping trips out West over the years.
Hard work and striving to be the best one can be was reflected in her many academic recognitions. She was Valedictorian (out of 701 students) of the 1968 graduating class of Nathan Bedford Forrest Senior High, Jacksonville, Florida. She was the first student in the history of St. Vincent's Hospital Nursing School, Jacksonville, Florida, to graduate with a 4.0 average, in 1971. And she had the highest grade point average among transfer students in the 1978 graduating class of the University of Florida.
Becky is survived by siblings: Francis Schirra of Millington, Tennessee, Charles Schirra of Virginia Beach, Virginia, Jane Wiseman of Moscow, Tennessee, and her very much loved sister, Joyce Mathison from New Orleans, who has made it possible for her to continue her fight against inoperable lung cancer for five years.
Becky was a member of Birmingham Unitarian Church since 1985, where she served as Alliance women's group president, as a member of the Religious Education committee, taught Sunday School, and organized the semi-annual rummage sales.
