       Mrs. Schmitz-Schell was born Jan. 24, 1947, at Kansas City, Mo., to Joseph V. and Consuella 'Connie' Farrenkopf Schmitz of Aurora.

Schell; a son and daughter-in-law, James and Tara Schell of Sterling, Alaska; a daughter, Lynn Christine Schell of Eugene, Ore.; her mother of Aurora; six sisters and four brothers-in-law, Barbara and John Roessig of Greeley, Colo., Teresa and Don Grint of Lenexa, Kan., Catherine Schmitz of Kaysville, Utah, Loretta Schmitz of Hastings, Cynthia and John Morris of Grand Island, Diane and Patrick Fischer of Loveland, Colo.; four brothers and sisters-in-law, Mathew and Debbie Schmitz of Hastings, Anthony and Lynn Schmitz of Nekoma, Kan., Michael and Patty Schmitz of Overland Park, Kan., and Peter and Kim Schmitz of Traverse City, Mich.

        Additional survivors include grandchildren, Ranger and Elizabeth Ivy of Sterling, Alaska; and many nieces and nephews.

        Just a few weeks shy of her 62nd birthday, Judith died peacefully at her home on Dec. 20. Judy was born second into a large family of 13 children that her parents created in Grand Island. While Judy desperately loved and was dedicated to her family, her fierce independence was evident throughout her life.

        Judy grew up in Grand Island, attending St. Mary's Grade School and Central Catholic High School, graduating in 1964. She crashed through Central Catholic with academic high honors, shared her love of the Lord with her angelic voice in choir and drama, but most notably became the first female vice president of her class. Judy married Dennis Schell on Feb. 22, 1969, at Grand Island. She then attended St. Catherine's School of Nursing in Omaha and graduated in 1968, as a registered nurse. Judy began her long nursing career at St. Francis Hospital in Grand Island. Her career continued in Norfolk, Va., Loveland, Colo., and finally in Saldotna, Alaska, where she retired. Over the years, Judy worked in several departments within each hospital, her favorite being the recovery room. She treasured being the initial resource to patients' transition from surgery to recovery.

        Living in Colorado, Judy immediately fell in love with the mountains and came to love backpacking, hunting and fishing alongside her husband. Together they spent many years loving the outdoors. While continuing her nursing career, she and Dennis started their own business, Call of the Wild Fishing & Fur, where she often handcrafted unique accessories late into the night. Later, Judy discovered her love of quilting and created many beautiful quilts for her family and friends. She enjoyed attending garage sales and the excitement of auctions with her lifelong friend, Barb Hawley.

       While many things in life brought Judy joy, nothing got her more excited than her beloved Big Red Football team. She also was an ardent follower of the Denver Broncos. She adored her grandchildren and spent most of her time making memories with them.

        Judy joins her father, Joseph V. Schmitz, and her siblings, Patricia Schmitz-Petersen and Joseph V. Schmitz II, in heaven.

Stephen, Lana Stephen, nee Bogdanow

Source:  The Daytona Beach [Florida] News-Journal  - Saturday, March 1, 2008

        Lana Bogdanow Stephen, a resident of Daytona Beach, Fla., since 1948, passed away Thursday, Feb. 28, 2008, at the age of 88.

        Born in Sioux City, Iowa, to Lena and Pavel Alexey Bogdanow, Lana graduated from Central High School. She received her nursing degree from St. Joseph's Mercy Hospital School of Nursing, achieving the highest score of those tested for licensing that year from the Iowa Board of Nursing. She moved to the Detroit, Mich., area where she provided private duty nursing services and served as nurse and office manager to a general surgeon in Bloomfield Hills. It was there she met her true love and future husband, James R. Stephen, who predeceased her in 1986. Inspired by her father and unbeknownst to all but her family and closest friends, she was truly a modern version of the Renaissance woman. Her photographic memory never forgot any poem or literature she loved and learned and from which she would readily recite for her and others' enjoyment. Her musical talents led her to learn how to play several musical instruments, to perform in her high school a cappella choir and her nursing school choir, to perform in many school plays and musicals, and to teach her children to appreciate and enjoy every style and form of musical performance. Her artistic ability and study of all things beautiful was evident in the making of exquisite clothing in her younger days, her needlework, and her choice of colors, fabrics and fine art in her décor. Her creative and delicious cooking for family and friends and her appreciation of gourmet food prepared by family, friends and professional chefs was one of her greatest pleasures, especially when accompanied by a fine champagne. She loved geography, history, and travel and made many trips abroad. She was a passionate gardener, avid reader and enjoyed playing bridge. She valued education above all pursuits and supported and applauded the academic achievements of all she knew and loved. A few of her many roles in the community included being a sustaining member of the Junior League and a member of the Museum of Arts and Science, and formerly a member of Palmettes. She was active in PTA at the schools her children attended in addition to supporting their various extracurricular activities. She proudly supported her husband's numerous entrepreneurial projects, which led them first to Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and then to Daytona Beach, Fla., where her husband was, for over thirty years, the local Pontiac dealer and also was selected by Mercedes Benz as their local dealer. The Stephens were among the original families supporting the building of Westminster-By-The-Sea Presbyterian Church, and participated together in numerous charitable, cultural, and civic organizations. From their earliest days in Daytona, they both actively and enthusiastically supported and participated in the development and growth of NASCAR and the International Speedway Corporation.

        She is survived by her eldest sister, Vera Bogdanow; her elder daughter, Diane Stephen Brown and her husband Walter; her son, James R. Stephen, Jr.; her younger daughter, Dr. Susan Stephen Glander, M.D. and her husband Christopher; her grandchildren, Brooke Brown Helmstetter and her husband William, Lindsey Michelle Graham, and Michael Stephen Glander; and her great-grandchildren, Hadley Jane and William Graham Helmstetter; her sister-in-law, Emma Stephen Besancon; and her nieces and nephews.

        A Memorial Service in celebration of her life will be held at Westminster By The Sea Presbyterian Church, 3223 South Peninsula Drive, Daytona Beach Shores, Fla., today (Monday, March 3rd), at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the American Heart Association or Westminster By The Sea Presbyterian Church.

Shootings shock rural Helmsburg

        HELMSBURG - Suffering from gunshot wounds and unsure if her husband was still alive, Mary Voland drove to her brother's house to call 911 after two assailants invaded their home.

        Voland's sister-in-law, Mary Jane Richards, heard the taps on her window early Saturday as Voland said she needed an ambulance for her and her husband, Richard "Dude" Voland.

        "It was like a dream. I didn't know if I had really heard her at first," Richards said.

Man dies following home invasion, shooting in Brown County

Morgantown - State Police detectives are investigating a deadly shooting early Saturday morning in northwest Brown County.

        Richard Voland died Sunday night at Methodist Hospital from gunshot wounds he suffered during a home invasion between midnight and 5 a.m. Saturday. The 84-year-old Voland and his 77-year-old wife, Mary, were taken to the hospital after the shooting at the couple's home on Lick Creek Road in Morgantown.

Police say the victims were asleep when the armed suspects broke into their home and shot them.

        "Everybody knows everybody out there," said ISP Sgt. Curt Durnil. "This is shocking to us, not only because of the suspects' ages, but because of the elderly couple's ages."

        The older of two suspects being sought by police is described as being 18-20 years old with dark hair and olive or dark complected skin. The younger male was described as being 14-16 years old with blond or light red hair and a light complexion. Both males were said to be clean-shaven.

        "One of the elderly victims was able to talk to investigators about their description and what they look like and near what time it happened," said Sgt. Durnil. "So they did give us a description. The victim also gave us some information that the older male probably has a wound on one of his arms."

        Detectives are pursuing a number of leads in the ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Indiana State Police in Bloomington at (812) 332-4411 or 1-800-423-1286 or the Brown County Sheriff's Department at (812) 988-6655.

Man dies after home attack

Suspect descriptions

        Police are searching for two “clean shaven” white teenagers as suspects in the home invasion: Older suspect: Age 18 to 20, dark hair with olive or dark complexion. He also has a wound on one arm. Younger suspect: Age 14 to 16, light complexion and sandy blond or light-red hair.

        To provide information: Indiana State Police Bloomington Post, 800-423-1286 or Brown County Sheriff’s Department, 988-6655.

    HELMSBURG — A Brown County man was killed, and his wife suffered serious gunshot wounds after two assailants invaded their home, state police said.

    The attack happened between midnight Friday and 5 a.m. Saturday at the residence of Richard W. and Mary I. Voland of 8406 Lick Creek Road near Helmsburg in northwestern Brown County.

    Richard Voland, 84, died Sunday night at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. Mary Voland, 77, was in fair condition.

    Police said they have not determined why the suspects entered the home.

    Indiana State Police Sgt. Curt Durnil said the house contained valuable items most homeowners would own, but the attackers did not ransack the house. Police are searching for two suspects based on victim descriptions. After the shootings, Mary Voland drove about a quarter mile to her brother’s house to call 911, said Voland’s sister-in-law, Elaine Richards. “It’s pitiful that people are that mean,” Richards said about the attack. Richards said the Volands had been married “all their (adult) lives.”

    They built their Lick Creek Road house on land Mary Voland’s parents once owned and have lived there for about 60 years, Richards said.

    Richard Voland was retired from Eli Lilly, where he worked at least part of the time as a plumber.

    Mary Voland “baked a lot for people” and had worked in a bank, Richards said.

Arrests Made In Brown County Murder, Details To Come This Afternoon

(NASHVILLE) - A development is expected to be announced later this afternoon about the murder case in Brown County.

State police have been investigating the shooting death of Richard "Dude" Voland and the assault of his wife, Mary, in November of last year.

State police in Bloomington have announced a press conference for 1:30 this afternoon at the brown county sheriff's department.

Two people have been arrested for the murder and assault.

One of the people arrested is 17-year-old Bennie Reed of Morgantown who is currently facing preliminary charges of murder, burglary of a residence, robbery and battery.

The other individual, is, as of now, only described as a younger male with the same last name.

[Submitter’s Note:  Below is another article.]

NASHVILLE

A judge will determine later this month if a 13-year-old will be charged as an adult for participating in the November killing of an 84-year-old Brown County man and slashing the man’s 77-year-old wife’s throat with a knife from her kitchen.

Blade Reed, who just last year was a sixth-grader at Helmsburg Elementary School, is being held without bond at the Johnson County Juvenile Justice Facility in Franklin for what police say was his role in the attack that left Richard “Dude” Voland dead and his wife seriously hurt.

He appeared Monday in a closed juvenile court hearing, where Nashville attorney James Roberts was appointed as a public defender to represent him in future court proceedings.

The next is set for 1 p.m. Jan. 30, where Brown Circuit Judge Judith Stewart will hear evidence and determine if the boy should be tried as an adult.

Mary Voland, a feisty woman known for baking pies and slaying rattlesnakes in her day, survived being shot in the abdomen and also having her throat cut.

From her hospital bed, she described the older youth for a composite sketch artist. She told investigators that the younger of the two assailants who forced their way into her home was so young she didn’t think he was old enough to shave.

He wore a glow-in-the-dark hockey mask during much of the attack.

Blade Reed’s older brother, 17-year-old Ben “Bennie” Kenneth Reed, was charged in court Friday with felony murder, attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder, attempted robbery resulting in serious injury, burglary, two counts of aggravated battery, two counts of battery with a deadly weapon and two counts of theft.

          He told Stewart he has no income and little education, having completed just the eighth grade. She appointed Nashville attorney Andy Szakaly as his public defender.

          He apparently had been living in Bloomington the past few years with an adult sister because of a falling out with his father, James Reed. But he told police he had returned to the Reed home on Lick Creek Road in Helmsburg, about a mile south of the Voland house on the same road. He said he had been living with his mother, Mary, at the residence but that he had hidden from his father because they did not get along. A police affidavit describing what happened at the Voland home in the early morning hours of Nov. 15 says the Reed brothers rode their bicycles there and lied their way in when Dude Voland came to the door by saying they needed to call someone to come and get them. When Bennie Reed pulled out a gun, Voland did the same and shot the teen in the upper left arm. Reed responded by firing back and striking Voland in the head. According to police and Reed’s own statement, he then shot Mary Voland as her husband lay bleeding on the living room floor and she was applying pressure and first aid to Reed’s gunshot wounds. Police who interviewed him Dec. 30 noticed two dime-sized wounds on his upper arm, consistent with a bullet going through the arm as Mary Voland had described. Police took his fingerprints, and a week later matched one to a print found on the Voland’s bathroom medicine chest, where Reed had gotten hydrogen peroxide and other first aid supplies.  Bennie Reed told police he was intoxicated and that he didn’t know why he had gone to the elderly couple’s home. “He thought he might have gone to the Voland house to obtain more alcohol,” the police affidavit states. Police say he used a Colt .25-caliber handgun stolen from another neighbor’s home. Alcohol was taken in that break-in, and a bullet was fired into a wall. Mary Voland told police that the younger boy pulled a ski mask over his face, stood behind her and cut her throat with a knife. Blade Reed said his brother took him aside, handed him a knife and told him he had to kill the woman because she was a witness. Ninety minutes after they entered the Voland house, the boys said they gathered up first aid supplies, the stolen handgun, Voland’s gun, the telephone handset and a bloody washcloth Mary Voland used to clean Reed’s gunshot wounds. They buried some of the items near a creek at their house. The next day, James Reed discovered a bloody washcloth in the garage where the boys’ bicycles are stored. Police confiscated it later. It matched those in the linen closet at the Voland home.

Teen gets 60 years in murder of man, 84, and attack on wife

        NASHVILLE -- One of two teenage brothers charged in the shooting death of an 84-year-old man at his rural Central Indiana home has been sentenced to 60 years in prison.

        Bennie Reed, 17, was sentenced Monday in Brown Circuit Court on charges of murder and aggravated battery.  Reed pleaded guilty last month in the November attack that killed Richard Voland and left his 77-year-old wife, Mary, with gunshot and knife wounds.

        Reed said he and his 13-year-old brother, Blade Reed, bicycled to the Volands' rural Helmsburg home to steal beer.  Prosecutors say the brothers pulled handguns.  Voland's gun fired during a struggle, wounding Bennie Reed, who then shot Voland in the head.

        Adult charges of murder and robbery are pending against Blade Reed.

Boy, 14, won't face murder charges

        NASHVILLE -- Prosecutors have dropped murder charges against a 14-year-old boy who admitted helping his older brother in an attack that killed an 84-year-old man and badly injured his wife at their Brown County home.

        Blade Reed pleaded guilty Thursday in Brown Circuit Court to an adult charge of attempted robbery with serious bodily injury.  A plea agreement calls for a 30-year prison sentence.

        He also admitted guilt to a juvenile battery charge for cutting 77-year-old Mary Voland's throat during the November 2008 attack at their home near Helmsburg.

        Bennie Reed, 17, has been sentenced to 60 years in prison on murder charges for the death of Richard Voland.

TEEN  COULD  GO  TO  ADULT  COURT

JUDGE  TO  MAKE  DECISION  IN  FATAL  ROBBERY  CASE

Source:  The Indianapolis [Indiana Star]; by Jason Thomas; 2009

        NASHVILLE,  Ind. -- A Brown County judge will determine next week whether a 13-year-old accused in the shooting death of an elderly Brown County man will be tried in adult court.

        The boy's fate is tied to a state law that presumes a person 10 or older accused of murder should be waived to adult court.  But the law also provided for an exemption -- if it's proved that it's in the best interests of the defendant and the community for the accused to stay in the juvenile justice system.

        The 13-year-old and his 17-year-old brother are accused in the slaying of 84-year-old Richard Voland in November, allegedly after they forced their way into Voland's rural home.

        Court documents state that during the robbery, the 17-year-old gave a knife to his younger brother, who cut Voland's wife, Mary, in the neck. . . . *
