Brunner Dickman, lawyer, poet, mentor

Brunner Dickman was a lawyer by day, and a yoga teacher, poet and philosopher the rest of the time.

''He was a very gentle and patient, sensitive person - yet very strong,'' said his daughter, Katharine ''Trina'' Winter, of Mays Lick, Ky.

''He was held in high esteem by all the people in our church,'' said lawyer Al Gerhardstein, a fellow member of First Unitarian Church in Avondale. ''Among the lawyers in the church, he was our mentor.''

Mr. Dickman died Nov. 3 after a stroke. He was 87.

''He was a dedicated, conscientious, ethical human being,'' said fellow lawyer Tom Kahle.

Mr. Dickman lived in Cincinnati most of his life. He was a World War II veteran who was wounded in action while serving in Europe with the 88th Infantry Division. He was awarded a Bronze Star and Purple Heart with five battle stars.

Mr. Dickman returned to civilian life in Cincinnati and became known statewide in the 1950s for his legal fight to stop Ohio from subsidizing veterans' organizations. He and Cincinnati attorney Jerome Goldman sued the state over using public funds for a private purpose.

After seven years of legal battles, including a win at the common pleas court level, the Ohio Supreme Court in 1955 refused to hear the case on appeal, effectively ending the challenge.

Mr. Dickman loved to learn and studied paleontology, photography, architecture, martial arts, metaphysics, Western and Eastern philosophy, writing and language in addition to his law practice and teaching yoga classes.

''He seemed to know something about everything,'' Ms. Winter said.

Mr. Dickman also had a special interest in genealogy and surnames. ''When he was introduced to someone he would always be interested in their last name,'' Ms. Winter said. ''If he didn't know the origin, he would look it up and tell them.''

Mr. Dickman became a widower with the death of his wife Venda Mary Tow Dickman. In 1990, at age 77, he married the former Kay Pemberton of North College Hill, who survives.

He is also survived by his son, Michael Dickman, of Arlington, Va.; sister Rosemary Seyler, of Santa Rosa, Calif.; brother John H. Dickman, Bright, Ind.; and two grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday at the church. His family held a private burial at Spring Grove Cemetery Friday. Memorials: First Unitarian Church.

Clepper Funeral Home is in charge.

Reds fan Eleanor Eckles, helped seniors

Eleanor Eckles, 93, of Oakley, a community volunteer and one of the most ardent of all Cincinnati Reds fans, died Friday.

Many people in Oakley and Hyde Park recall Mrs. Eckles and her white 1963 Chevrolet providing transportation and visitation services to the elderly, sick and shut-ins throughout the neighborhoods.

In 1987, Mrs. Eckles gave up her car and home in Oakley and moved to Twin Towers Methodist Retirement Home, where she continued to assist other residents.

Mrs. Eckles was widely known as one of the Reds' most loyal supporters. She began attending Reds' games at age 6 and attended every Opening Day game at Cinergy Field since its 1970 opening as Riverfront Stadium.

She was a member of the Rosie Red Rooters and went to 17 straight Reds' spring trainings in Florida.

Mrs. Eckles was featured among a group of Reds' rooters in a Cincinnati Post front page photograph on Sept. 18, 1995, a few days before the Reds honored her by having her throw out the ceremonial first pitch before a game.

Friends knew from looking at Mrs. Eckles whether the Reds had won or lost. If the Reds won, she proudly wore a red and white outfit the next day.

Mrs. Eckles, who was preceded in death by her husband, George, is survived by a sister, Mae Mund, of Cincinnati.

Mrs. Eckles was buried today at Vine Street Hill Cemetery. The Paul R. Young Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.

Memorials may be made to Hyde Park Bethlehem Benevolent Fund, 3799 Hyde Park Ave., Cincinnati, Ohio, 45200, or the Twin Towers Benevolent Fund, 5363 S. Ridge Drive, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45224.

Yvette McKenzie, Ky. deputy court clerk

Yvette McKenzie waited more than two months for a kidney transplant, wearing a beeper on her side that would alert her when an organ was ready. Meanwhile, she went to work every day as a deputy clerk in Boone County (Ky.) District Court, where her daughter, Stephanie, also worked.

Mrs. McKenzie's beeper went off Nov. 1, she got a new kidney, and went home Saturday.

But on Tuesday, Mrs. McKenzie, 55, of Burlington, Ky., died at St. Luke Hospital West.

A native of Puerto Rico, she often translated in court for people who spoke Spanish.

''She was just so valuable to the court system,'' said Pat Gutzeit, district court clerk.

Mrs. McKenzie and her husband, Tom, were married 25 years. Mr. McKenzie said his wife could always cheer somebody up. ''She had a way of doing that,'' he said. ''She was just kind of the life of the party.''

Other survivors include a son, Thomas of Burlington, Ky.; and a sister, Esther Sullivan of Fairfax, Va.

A. Bonavita lived up to name
Angelo Bonavita came to America from Italy in 1921 at age 17. He spoke no English and knew only his uncles in Cincinnati.
