With Sympathy: Nancy C. Horst

The Horsts retired to Roaming Shores. They were very active in the community until they relocated to Tucson, AZ. Our best wishes to their family.

Obituary by: Bring Funeral Home

Nancy C. Horst was born to Carl and Loree Wyndham, January 20, 1933 in Bloomville, Ohio. She passed into the hands of her Lord, June 29, 2012. She was raised in the Colorado Springs and Florissant, Colorado areas. She married Carl Horst, USAF on March 26, 1949. After a short time in California they settled in Ashtabula County, Ohio. They raised a family and all enjoyed boating and sailing Lake Erie plus a mixture of school activities. She treasured her 13 years managing a junior high school library. In her early 40’s she enrolled at Capitol University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. During her Junior year she decided to run for Ashtabula County Recorder. She won her first and two subsequent terms before retiring. She and her husband moved to Tucson in 2006 after some years as “snow birds”. They discovered many new and caring friends. Tucson became home. She and her husband summed up their 63 years of marriage with a song, “Look at Us”. One verse is “Look at us after all these years together. Look at us after all we’ve been through. Look at us still leaning on each other. If you want to see what true love can be, just look at us.” She is survived by her husband and daughters, Catherine Blum, of Indiana, Debra Polgar, of Alabama and Diane Kent, of Arizona. Also by six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; sister, Jane Wilson; brothers, Max, Bill and Jim Snare all of Colorado. A Memorial Service will be held at her church, Rincon UCC, at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 22, 2012. The church is located at 122 N. Craycroft, Tucson, AZ. 85710. Her wish was for memorial contributions to the church. Arrangements are being handled by BRING’S BROADWAY CHAPEL. Please visit us at bringfuneralhome.com.

2012 July 4th Celebration

PrimeTime Big Band’s Performance on July 1st.

President’s Comments – June 2012


We have rented a tent for the summer to replace the pavilion at beach 2. Because of delays getting permits and prints, we did not have enough time to build it without causing a considerable amount of congestion in the beach 2 pool area. The pavilion will be rebuilt this fall.

The Weed harvester got a good start on the weeds this year. However a leak developed in the hull and we had to remove it for repairs. We hope to have it back in service in a few days.

The July Board Meeting shall be held in the RRA Clubhouse. The meeting will start with a public meeting regarding amending Section 1547.52 of the Ohio Revised Code, rule 1501:47-7-19. This would allow boats to be “beached” at a specific area of beach 2. The regular Board meeting will start immediately after the public meeting.

Please welcome Lee Shaffer as my part-time office assistant. Lee is a recent college graduate with a degree in communications. He will be working with me on the dredging project plus other various office projects.
