C4 Friday, August 11. 1995 WE METROOBITUARIES The Cincinnati Enquirer Elizabeth 'Betty' Herschede was major patron of city's arts BY SHARON MORGAN The Cincinnati Enquirer Elizabeth "Betty" Wohlgemuth Herschede, whose unstinting philanthropy supported the arts in Cincinnati for many years, died Thursday at Christ Hospital. The downtown resident was 82. The Cincinnati Symphony, the . Cincinnati Ballet, Cincinnati Opera, the Taft Museum, May Festival, WGUC radio (90.9 FM) WCET (Channel 48) all benefited from Mrs. Herschede's gifts over the years. And her generousity was matched by a reticence that kept many of the gifts private. "My mother cared about the arts passionately, but she did not care about recognition," said Elizabeth D. Herschede. "She gave because she cared and loved those organizations. It never mattered to her if she was president of an organization or just licking stamps for it." Wayne Godwin, president of WCET, said Mrs. Herschede's legacy "is one of unparalleled philanthropy to our community, borne of her unbridled faith in and love for its people. Her outstanding support for Channel 48 and public television was a testament to her unselfish willingness to share with the entire community." WGUC, another organization that benefited from Mrs. Her schede, dedicated its entire day of OBITUARIES programming to her memory Thursday. She was an active supporter of the symphony orchestra, serving at various times in the past 35 years as a trustee, a member of the board of overseers and president of the Women's Committee. She initiated the symphony's annual Musical Panoramas in 1970, a music-literary lecture series about symphony and Herschede composers that was later expanded to include opera and related topics from literature, art and ballet. Mrs. Herschede was an honorary board member of the Cincinnati Ballet and a life trustee of the Cincinnati Opera. She was a life member of the Taft Museum and a life trustee of the Cincinnati Institute of Fine Arts. "She was the portrait of a lady, said Virginia Wohlgemuth of Indianapolis, a cousin-in-law and a close personal friend. "Her warmth, kindness and graciousness were her hallmarks," Wohlgemuth said. Mrs. Herschede's late husband, i John Z. Herschede, had been president of the National Underwriter Co. in Cincinnati. He died in 1993. Her brother-in-law, the late Mark P. Herschede, operated Herschede Jewelry Co. Mrs. Herschede and her hus band were honored for their civic dedication by the city's leadership and with a performance by Col lege-Conservatory of Music stu dents in November iyb, in an event organized by their daughter blizabeth. in Mrs. fierscnede re ceived a Founder's Day Award from Xavier University for her involvement in and support of the May Festival, the symphony, the opera, ballet, the Miami Purchase Association and the Cincinnati Na ture Center. Also surviving are two other daughters, Holly Ann Herschede of Columbus and Alison Goss Her schede of Cincinnati. The service will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at Christ Church Cathedral, 318 E. Fourth St. downtown. Visitation will be 5 to 8 p.m. today at Gilhgan Funeral Home, 2926 Woodburn Ave. in Walnut Hills. Burial will be in Spring Grove Cemetery.

Joseph Causey played in country bands Sycamore Twp. man won top honor of Ohio music group four times BY SHARON MORGAN The Cincinnati Enquirer Joseph Causey, one of Ohio's top country-western musicians, was remembered for his ability to play the electric mandolin and his way of helping others. "You felt and experienced Joe's music. Every note he played was sharp. It was a God-given talent," said his wife, Kathy Causey of Sycamore Township. "When I heard him play, it would send chills all over me." Mr. Causey died Monday at Be-thesda North Hospital. The Sycamore Township resident was 59. He moved from Piqua to Cincinnati in 1984. Four times in 1982, 1983, 1984 and 1994 Mr. Causey was named Ohio's instrumentalist of the year by the Ohio Country and Western Music Association. Mr. Lausey was a longtime member of the orga-nization and served 2 Vi years as president in the 1980s. He played in local square dance hands causey and the Joe Chies and the Country Gentlemen band that performed from Moon-lite Gardens in Cincinnati to Cedar Point in Sandusky. He also performed with County Time Band, while his wife played the drums. In June 1992, Mr. Causey was the lead player of the band at the National Square Dance Convention held at the Albert B. Sabin Convention Center. He was a member of the F&AM Lodge of Germantown and the Fel lowship Tabernacle in Carthage, Mr. Causey was an engineering machinist at J.W. Harris Co. in Blue Ash. He had been with the company for 10 years. "Joe Causey was an extremely accomplished master machinist who had a love for his work and a concern for his fellow man. He was a generous and kind person of exceptional character who will be greatly missed," said Joseph Harris, president of J. W. Harris Co. Survivors include: his mother, Goldie Causey of Piqua; four sons, Joey of Mount Vernon, Ky., Jamey of Houston and Jody and Jeffrey of Piqua; a daughter, Pamela Bell of Piqua; a brother, George Causey of Trenton, Ohio; a sister, Pauline Causey of Piqua; and seven grandchildren. Internment was in Rest Haven Memorial Park in Evendale. Storms terrorize Ohio, killing 4 More than 1,000 families trying to dry off as flood waters recede The Associated Press WHEELERSBURG, Ohio A woman and her two daughters were swept in their car down a flooded creek Thursday, among four people killed in three days of storms that have, forced evacuations, damaged homes and closed roads. Federal and state authorities Thursday began surveying the damage in five counties to determine whether any of the estimated 600 homes and businesses damaged this week were eligible for federal, low-interest loans. Answers are expected next week. Up to 1,000 families were affected by flooding Tuesday and Wednesday, according to state and Red Cross preliminary estimates. Most of the flooding earlier in the week was in western and central Ohio. But storms Thursday appeared to hit southern Ohio the hardest. The family in the car was swept down Lick Run Creek when the driver tried to go through flooded parts of a Scioto County road near Wheelersburg, witnesses said. The car was found in a field about three hours later, when the water, which had reached up to 12 feet, had receded. It could not be determined how far the car had traveled, said R.A. Bailey, a dispatcher at the Portsmouth post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol. The dead were Tamara Robinson, 20, of Wheelersburg and her daughters, 2-year-old Cassidy and 4-year-old Mellissa, Bailey said. County Coroner Thomas Morris ruled that all three drowned. Another weather-related death occurred Wednesday in Columbus. David Shank, 33, of Reynoldsburg was struck by lightning as he walked down a fairway at Jefferson Golf and Country Club, the Jefferson Township Fire Department said. Shank, who was golfing with three other men, died about 30 minutes later at a hospital. During storms early Thursday in southern Ohio, at least 6 inches of rain hit eastern parts of Scioto County in about two hours, sheriffs dispatcher Leslie Johnson said. Flood waters 5 feet deep swept through the town of about 4,800 people. Water in some areas reached 10 feet. One-quarter of a 12-foot-high earthen dam about 5 miles north of Wheelersburg was washed out. The water flowed over uninhabited ground into the Little Scioto River,, washing away or sinking two boats, said Rodney Tornes of the Ohio Division of Water. No serious damage or injuries were reported. "There is no water. There are fish flopping in the bottom," said Kim Campbell, emergency management director in Scioto County. The rain triggered rock and mud slides that temporarily blocked Ohio 335 and Ohio 140. The state Department of Transportation was clearing the highways, and single lanes were reopened. Sheriff's deputies rescued several motorists who were isolated by water, and about 30 residents were evacuated in nearby Green Township. By daybreak, the flood waters were receding. By midmorning, the rain had stopped. fT! Death Notices fj Death Notices fj Death Notices ATWOOD Coy E., beloved husband of the late Mollle D.

Washington 231-7150 Grand jury views video of shooting Suspect could be indicted for aggravated murder BY ADAM WEINTRAUB and KRISTEN DELGUZZI The Cincinnati Enquirer A Hamilton County grand jury on Thursday watched a man die. The grand jurors viewed a videotape of the Aug. 1 shooting of 24-year-old Charles Kevin Blan-kenship, who was killed on the porch of a South Fairmount house. The grand jury, which could release its decision today, is examining the role Charles Cole played in the shooting. Cole, 44, who lives in the building in the 1600 block of Tremont Avenue where the shooting oc curred, was charged with murder. Kenneth Lawson, Cole's attorney, said prosecutors told him they would ask the grand jury to indict Cole on the more serious charge of aggravated murder, which means the crime was premeditated. Lawson, who has not yet seen the tape, said his client claims the shooting was self defense. Men identifiable Sources who have watched the tape made from a security camera Cole installed on the porch told The Enquirer the video is clear and both men are identifiable. Lt. Greg Snider, of the Cincinnati police homicide unit, confirmed that Cole can be seen firing several shots into Blankenship. Two shots struck Blankenship in the chest, and two more entered his stomach. A fifth bullet smashed through his left arm, sources said. Blankenship collapsed onto the porch, landing on his back. Sources said Cole then walked over, pointed the semi-automatic pistol at Blankenship and asked, "You want some more of this?" Seconds later, Blankenship began convulsing. Then he stopped moving all together. Police said the 3:45 a.m. shooting capped a quarrel that began when Blankenship tried to intercede in a dispute between Cole and a building tenant. At some point, Cole retreated into his house, witnesses said. When he re-emerged, he had a 9mm pistol tucked in the back of his shorts. Sources said Blankenship, w,ho , also lived on Tremont, was pacing along the sidewalk in front of Cole's home, shouting obscenities. Cole repeatedly shouted at Blan--kenship to get off his property. On routine patrol Minutes before the shooting, a police cruiser on routine patrol drove along Tremont Avenue, Snider confirmed. Other sources said that Cole stepped back toward the building when the cruiser passed by. He returned when it was gone. Less than two minutes later, Blankenship began climbing the steps to the porch. Cole threatened to shoot him. But Blankenship continued to move up the steps. Cole fired as soon as both of JJlankenship's feet were on the top step, sources said. Plan to widen 12th St. in Covington advances BY JANE PRENDERGAST The Cincinnati Enquirer Kentucky highway officials got the go-ahead Thursday from the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments to spend up to $10 million in federal money to improve Covington's 12th Street. But Transportation Secretary Don Kelly insisted the vote was not an endorsement of a controversial plan to double the street's width. The 14-2 vote by the council's executive committee put the project into OKI's Transportation Improvement Program. Kelly said Covington residents and officials "absolutely" will get a chance starting this fall to give input to the state on what should be done. The proposal, which calls for demolishing about 40 buildings to double the street's width, is only an example of what the state is considering, he said. "This was a very big hurdle that we needed to get over today," said Mark Guilfoyle, top aide to Gov. Brereton Jones and a proponent of the efforts to improve 12th Street. Covington Mayor Denny Bowman and County Commissioner Bernie Moorman cast the only two dissenting votes Thursday. But Karen Kahle, executive director of the Northern Kentucky Homeless and Housing Coalition, said affordable housing would be lost.
