Saturday, September 22, 1990 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER MetTOC-3 Obituaries Katherine D. Barnes, Clifton She was retired head of food services for Cincinnati schools BY KENNETH COCKREL The Cincinnati Enquirer Katherine D. Barnes loved to cook and that skill no doubt came in handy as she coordinated the preparation of meals for children at nearly two dozen Cincinnati schools. Mrs. Barnes of Clifton died Thursday of cancer at Deaconess Hospital. She was 72. "She was a highly valued employee who was loved by her superiors as well as her subordinates," said Diane Sakmyster, director of food services for Cincinnati Public Schools. Mrs. Barnes was born Aug. 25, 1918 in East St. Louis, 111. She began her career with the Cincinnati Public Schools in 1958 as a substitute food-service helper and had become a cook-manager by 1966, Sakmyster said. In 1976, she became manager of the public schools' central com- mi Katherine D. Barnes missary operations, which placed her in charge of meal preparations for 22 schools. In that job, she also coordinated the cooking of pastries and pies for the district. Before her retirement in 1989, Mrs. Barnes also played a key role in the operation of the summer feeding program in conjunction with the city Recreation Commission. That program provides meals for children during recreational activities at local parks. Mrs. Barnes is survived by three daughters, Mary Weaver Creech, Barbara Owens, and Sherry Markle, all of Cincinnati; and one brother, Stanley Dissinger, also of Cincinnati. Visitation will be at 9 a.m. today at the Chas. A. Miller Sons Funeral Home, 4138 Hamilton Ave., Northside. Services will be at 11 a.m. at the funeral home. Burial will be in Spring Grove Cemetery. Memorials can be made to the American Cancer Society, 3372 Central Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45225. Suzanne Behler BY DAVE BEASLEY The Cincinnati Enquirer Suzanne Behler was a woman who lived for people. "She was a significant other to many, many, many persons," said her brother, Bill Torbeck of Florence.

She was driving her children and six others to school when her van struck a car that had gone out of control on wet pavement. On the night before her death she was at a Parent-Teacher Organization meeting at St. Joseph Academy in Walton, working closely with teachers to help the school. "Her whole life and her prior- a ities were about her relationship with God, her children and her husband," Tor-beck said. "She was everyone's best friend."

LIDINGTON The Cincinnati Enquirer Earl W. Conner of Waynesville had many interests, but, his son said, he mostly enjoyed his work at Stubbs-Conner Funeral Home. "He had his heart in the funeral business. His father had been in the funeral business, so I guess he had some roots there," said Steve Conner, owner and operator of Stubbs-Conner. Mr. Conner, 71, died Wednesday at Kettering Medical Center, after an apparent heart attack. After retiring in 1984 as president and chairman of the board of Waynesville National Bank, Mr. Conner worked with his son as a funeral director and embalmer. "He probably would have pursued the (mortuary) business, but a heart attack after his service in World War II made him give it up," his son said. Before joining the bank as a cashier in 1955, Mr. Conner had been postmaster of Waynesville. He Conner was a graduate of Waynesville High School, where he played basket-ball, and Springfield Business College. Mr. Conner was a former clerk with the Miami Ceme tery Association, a former member of the Warren County Mental Health Board, past president of the Wayne Local school board and a member of the Warren County Bankers Association. He was a member of the Waynesville United Methodist Church board and had served as past president of the Warren County Shrine Club and treasurer of the Waynesville Masonic Temple. He was a member of Scottish Rite and Antioch Shrine in Dayton. In 1975, Mr. Conner was honored by the Waynesville Chamber of Commerce. He was a member of the Waynesvile Rotary Club and a former member of the Wayne Township Rescue Squad. "He was a community-minded person. He was just one of those types of people who was all-out for the town," Steve Conner said. He also is survived by his wife, Doris; a daughter, Becky Hoak of New Vienna, Ohio; six grandchil dren; and two great-grandchildren. Visitation will be from 3 to 8 p.m. todayat Stubbs-Conner Funeral Home, 185 N.

' State news Clues in 10 slayings sought THE ASSOCIATED PRESS GREENVILLE, Ohio FBI agents and law enforcement offi- cials from Ohio and Indiana met Friday to review the slayings of 10 males with links to the Indianapolis homosexual community. Detective Larry Dickey of the Darke County Sheriffs Department said 16 officials were in the closed-door meeting. "We're pooling information," Dickey said. "We're checking to see if we do have any similarities, how many people we may be dealing with, that kind of thing." The bodies of 10 Indianapolis-area males have been found in rural Ohio and Indiana in the past 10 years. At least nine had been seen in areas of Indianapolis frequented by homosexuals, and at least eight were homosexuals, said Larry Swihart, a Preble County sheriffs investigator. All of the victims were found nude or partially clothed; seven were strangled. The cause of death for three of the victims has not been determined, Swihart said. The deaths of four men found strangled in Preble County in the past five years are under investigation by the Preble County Sheriffs Department as are the deaths of five males whose bodies were discovered in rural Indiana between 1980 and 1987. The Defiance (Ohio) County Sheriffs Department is investigating whether the body of a nude, white male found May 31, 1989, in a creek near the Indiana state line might be connected to the other slayings. Darke County authorities are investigating the death of Thomas R. Clevenger Jr., 19. The nude '. body of the Indianapolis man was discovered Sept. 12. Swihart said it wasn't known whether Clevenger had any ties with the Indianapolis gay community. Preble County Prosecutor Wilfrid Dues said his investigation had turned up no evidence of a serial killer. Cult leader gets death for 5 killings THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PAINESVILLE. Ohio A reli gious cult leader who called himself a prophet was sentenced to death Friday for killing a family of five on a farm in 1989. Jeffrey Lunderen, 40. showed no emotion as Lake County Common Pleas Judge Martin O. Parks sentenced him to die on April 17, lyai, exactly two years after the slayings. State-mandated appeals likely will delay execution beyond that date. Parks said in his sentencing that Lundgren displayed a lack of re morse. The sentencing came a day af ter a jury recommended the death penalty for Lundgren, who formed a cult after he was defrocked in 1988 as a lay minister of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Lundgren was convicted Aug. 29 of five counts of aggravated murder and five counts of kidnapping in the deaths of Dennis and Cheryl Avery and their three children, ages 7, 13 and 15. They were killed on a northeast Ohio farm where the cult lived. The Averys were bound, gagged, shot and then buried in a pit dug inside a barn April 17, 1989. Police found the bodies Jan. 4 after receiving a tip from an informant On the same day Lundgren was convicted, his wife, Alice, was sentenced to life in prison for her role in the slayings. She was convicted of conspiracy, complicity and kidnapping. Their son, Damon, was convicted Tuesday on the same charges that Lundgren faced. Damon Lundgren's sentencing hearing will begin Monday.
