Fuhrer, Richard E. 87

  • Oakmont
  • Born: 1928-02-12
  • Died: 2015-07-29
  • Funeral Home: Burket-Truby, Oakmont | Get Directions
  • Richard E. "Dick" Fuhrer, of Oakmont, passed away Wednesday, July 29, 2015, after a long struggle with Parkinson Disease. Born Feb. 12, 1928, in East Brady, Dick grew up during the Great Depression and matured into an amazing athlete as World War II raged on. He set scoring records in basketball for East Brady High School that stood unbroken for decades until only another great athlete by the name of Jim Kelly came along to finally break them. Dick enlisted in the Marine Corps at the tail end of World War II but was turned away due to bad eyesight. He went on to Westminster College where he also enjoyed basketball success and was a key member of the team that was actually ranked 10th in the nation, an era when tiny Westminster was a basketball powerhouse and literally lived up to its nickname of "Towering Titans". Westminster is also where he met the beautiful Gladys Stitt, and the two were married April 5, 1951. They settled in Oakmont where Glad actually grew up and began a family. Dick originally started his business career as a pharmaceutical sales rep and while perhaps secretly always desiring to be a physician, he quickly migrated to the life insurance business, where he set a standard of excellence that once again put him into a category of success that can only be described as a "Towering Titan". He started his own independent agency, Fuhrer's Inc., in 1962, and was not only a lifetime member of the prestigious Million Dollar Round Table but also qualified five times for their elite status of Top of the Table. His legacy is evidenced by the many clients he served and families that he helped make whole during their time of need. In addition to the insurance business, Dick's other passion was golf. He was a life member of the Oakmont Country Club and president of the club in 1983-84. And once again, he left an indelible footprint in the golf world that many fans of golf today might not realize. Dick very much can be recognized as the inventor of the "modern US Open" where the golf course is set to a standard of excellence and difficulty that demands that the winner of the event play his very best and thus the championship itself produces the most deserving winner. In 1983 when the US Open Championship came to Oakmont, Dick demanded that course be set to a standard that the leaders of the USGA of that time did not agree with. They thought Dick's standard was too difficult, in particular the height of the rough that captures errant shots. However, Dick's preference prevailed and the Open was a major success. Since then, the USGA sets its Open venues to extreme difficulty, often to the dislike of the players participating, but nevertheless the modern Open is accepted as "The" toughest test in golf, admired by golf fans worldwide for its demanding nature and producing great champions. They can thank Dick Fuhrer and his unyielding stance in 1983 for today's modern Open. However, Oakmont was not the only golf course that Dick had an influence on. He also owned St. Jude Golf Club, which he bought as a nine hole public course in 1979 and eventually built into an 18 hole facility. St. Jude was known for its fast greens and own difficulty and built a reverend following of members and elite golfers in Western Pennsylvania, representing another lasting legacy of Dick's strong personality and vision. His life was one of remarkable accomplishment and enduring influence. Gladys predeceased him in 2000 but he leaves behind many friends, clients and cherished family, brother, Frank Fuhrer (Heidi), and sister, Mary Lou Waltman; his daughter, Gayle Hitchcock (Doug), and sons, Kurt (Becky) and Steve, along with grandchildren, Amber, Erik, Ashley, Brad, Steve, Drew and Wil; also great-grandchildren, Carter, Lucca and Colton. Family and relatives will be received from 2 to 4 and 6 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 2, 2015, at the BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION and ALTERNATIVE SERVICES INC., 421 Allegheny Ave., Oakmont. Mass of Christian Burial will be at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3, 2015, in St. Irenaeus Catholic Church, Oakmont. Everyone meet directly at church. Private interment will take place in St. Eucebius Cemetery next to his wife, Gladys. Donations may be made in his name to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

Smith, Mary Alice 91

  • Oakmont
  • Born: 1923-09-25
  • Died: 2015-07-26
  • Funeral Home: English, Oakmont | Get Directions
  • Mary Alice (Shackelford) Smith, 91, died peacefully at Longwood at Oakmont, July 26, 2015. Mary Alice was born Sept. 25, 1923, to Oscar L. and Muzett (Daniel) Shackelford, in Oxford, N.C. She grew up in Kinston, N.C., with her parents and brothers, in a grand home built by her father. From an early age, music was second only to family in importance to Mary Alice. She was blessed with a beautiful soprano voice that matched her lyrical soul. She graduated with a Bachelor's degree in music from the Women's College of North Carolina in 1944, then moved to New York City. Her time in New York allowed her to explore her musical talent and broadened her awareness of the diverse cultures in America and beyond, kindling an interest she held throughout her life. She returned to teach at Women's College in 1945, and while in Kinston visiting her family in December, 1945, she performed as the soloist at a friend's wedding. Her singing that day won the heart of Norman Smith, a Marine veteran of Iwo Jima, who decided on the spot that she was "the girl for him." Mary Alice and Norman were married on July 6, 1946, and moved back to New York, where she continued to pursue her career in music and he enrolled at Columbia University. Like many women of her generation, when her children came along, first a daughter, Leslee, in 1949, followed by sons, Christian and Gregory, in 1951 and 1953, Mary Alice set her career aside to focus on the family. Though her professional performances were suspended, music remained an essential part of her daily routine, whether running through scales, singing to her children or lending her voice to the choir at the Baldwin Methodist Church, where she and Norman worshiped. She conveyed her love of music to each of her children who learned to play piano, clarinet, oboe and guitar. When her children were old enough, Mary Alice resumed singing professionally, both as a soloist and joining with Carolyn Reyer to form the "Bel Canto Duo." Mary Alice and Carolyn made several recordings and performed at numerous venues in Pittsburgh in the early and mid-1960s. In the 1980s, Mary Alice further expanded her creative outlets through poetry and creating fabric art. She was an active member of the Embroiderer's Guild and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Her quilts and other pieces have been displayed in a number of galleries in Pittsburgh and are cherished by her family. Mary Alice was also known for her marvelous cooking and enjoyed entertaining family, friends and new acquaintances in her home. Expanding beyond her small town southern roots, she welcomed exchange students from France and Peru to the family and regularly invited guests for dinner from countries as diverse as China and Ghana. She thrived on learning about different cultures and opened her heart to others regardless of their background. She embraced every aspect of life and gave of herself tirelessly for others' benefit. Mary Alice and Norman moved to Longwood at Oakmont in 2003 where they enjoyed the company of good friends and a thriving community. Norman passed away in 2013, just a few months after their 67th anniversary. Mary Alice is survived by her brothers, Robert (Evelyn) Shackelford, of Mt. Olive, N.C., and Arthur (Rachel) Shackelford, of Greensboro, N.C.; children, Leslee H. (Andrew) Fiveland, of Blue Hill, Maine, Christian A. (Loreen), of Helena, Mont., and Dr. Gregory N. (Wendy), of Portland, Ore,; grandchildren, Heather (Gardner), Eryn, Malcolm, Dylan, Bergin and Daniel (Fiveland); and great-grandchildren, Jack and Anna (Gardner), Ayden and Colin. At Mary Alice's request, cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, 2015, at Shadyside Presbyterian Church, 5121 Westminster Place, Pittsburgh. Arrangements are entrusted to the ENGLISH FUNERAL HOME and CREMATION SERVICES INC., 378 Maryland Ave., Oakmont, PA 15139. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations in Mary Alice's honor to the University of North Carolina-Greensboro Department of Music or the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
