Lockwood remembered
The Lake Township trustees held a moment of silence during their April 19 meeting to remember William Lockwood, a former chairman of the township zoning board of appeals.

Lockwood, 91, died April 14.

The former Millbury resident was known for his professionalism on the board, said Richard Welling, a trustee.

“He was a very professional and competent chairman,” Welling said. “He set the board high for the rest of the zoning board of appeals.”

Lutheran Homes residents celebrate
There was a bright glow of birthday candles at the Lutheran Home of Toledo last week, as two residents celebrated milestone birthdays.

On April 6, Esther Hoffman turned 105. Born in Riga Township, Mich. In 1906, she was one of four children. She married Otto Hoffman Dec. 11, 1937 and they were married for 40 years.

She worked at Nu-Way Stretch Suspender Company as a billing clerk. Esther enjoyed sewing, writing to friends and traveling, often driving when she and Otto would take car trips.
