    Charlie was a high school friend.  We once did a parody of MacBeth as a skit for a talent show at Logansport High School.  It must have been 1961 or 1962.  I later heard that he had been killed in Vietnam.  While in Washington in June of 2002, I found his name on the Wall.  I was moved to tears that here was a friend that I only remembered through goofy high school fun whose name was permanently engraved as a hero who sacrificed his life for all of us here at home.  Thanks, Charlie!

 Geraldine (Gerry) A Kienly
   3-9-44     5-22-99    (55)

    Oceanside, CA - Geraldine A. Kienly, 55, of Oceanside, died at her home on Sunday, May 22, 1999, after being diagnosed a year ago with cancer.  Throughout that time, she imparted special strength to all who had any association with her.   All who knew "Gerry" grew immeasurably from that relationship.   She was a no-nonsense kind of person who accepted no substitutes for truth, and she always exhibited a characteristic of unselfish caring and humor that set her apart.
    Gerry was born March 9, 1944, in Ft. Knox, Hardin County, Ky., the daughter of George and Helen McBride Kienly.   She graduated from Logansport High School in 1962. She attended Michael Reese Hospital and Medical Center School of Nursing, Chicago, graduating in 1966.  She later worked at Stanford University with Dr. Shumway, one of the first heart transplant specialists in California.
    Gerry joined the U.S. Air Force and served a tour of duty in Vietnam as a nurse from 1970 to 1972, attaining the rank of captain.  Her most recent position was that of a home care nurse with Scripps Home Healthcare Service in San Diego.   Throughout Gerry's nursing career, she was greatly admired and respected by patients and colleagues alike.
    Recently a 55th birthday celebration was held in Gerry's honor.   It was attended by a multitude of admirers-those who have learned so much by how she lived her life and how she dealt with her disease.
    Gerry is survived by her mother, Helen Kienly, Oceanside, CA; her sister, Judy Jackson, Amarillo, TX; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.   Her beloved dog, Sandy, joined Gerry in death a few days later.
    A memorial service with full military color guard was held for Gerry at the San Luis Rey Mission, San Luis Rey, CA, at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 29th. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society.

 William "Bill" Medland
   1-1-44     8-17-2013    (69)

     William "Bill" Medland, 69, of Onalaska, Wisconsin, passed away Saturday, August 17, 2013, at home with family.  He learned to balance cancer and living for over 15 years.  He was born on January 1, 1944, to Thomas and Mary Medland of Logansport, IN. Bill was a higher education administrator and professor for more than 40 years.  He received his B.A. from the University of Notre Dame, two master degrees and his Ph.D. from Ball State University.  He did postdoctoral studies in "cold war diplomacy" at Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, UW-Madison and Freie Universitat in Berlin.

     Bill married Donna Lee Bahnaman on March 12, 1977, in the evening at St. Vincent Church in Logansport, Indiana, where they had met at Saturday morning Mass two years earlier.

     Bill served on many local, regional and national boards and committees and was a founding director of the Association of Franciscan Colleges and Universities, the La Crosse Medical Health Science Consortium and the Amie L. Mathy Center, a joint project with the Boys and Girls Clubs - a first nationally.

     After serving for five years as provost at Saint Mary's College in Winona, Minn., Bill became president of Viterbo in 1991 and served for 15 years, the longest serving president in Viterbo's history.  He also served the university as chancellor for more than two years.  After retiring in December 2008, he worked in development at Catholic Charities for two years before final retirement in 2001.

     During the 15 years of the Medland administration, Viterbo transformed from a college to a university.  During his presidency, the Viterbo community generated yearly record enrollment, including annual increases in undergraduate and graduate degree recipients, generated new master degrees in business, nursing and servant leadership and six undergraduate degrees as well as increases in fundraising and the annual budget.  As president, he initiated a new governance system creating five schools.  He founded and served as the first director of the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership (1998-2000).  He help create two strategic plans: "Vision 2005: Living and Learning in the 21st Century" (which he implemented, '95-'05) and "The University of Opportunity" (which he presented publically as an initial draft in 2005).

     The landscape of Viterbo changed between 1991 and 2006.  Among the projects completed were Rose Terrace Student Apartments, the Athletics Complex on Highway 16, the physical plant building, the D.B. and Marge Reinhart Center for Ethics, Science and Technology and the Amie L. Mathy Center for Recreation and Education.  The campus was expanded and enhanced.

     Bill would be the first to admit that he was recognized too often and for the accomplishments of others.  He always gave recognition to the people of Viterbo University.  Among some of his awards were La Crosse Tribune Person of the Year, Chamber of Commerce Chair's Community Service award, LADCO Triangle of Achievement award for collaboration, Boys and Girls Clubs' National Man and Youth award, Boys and Girls Clubs' Wall of Fame, AFP Mississippi Valley Outstanding Professional Fundraiser award, honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from Viterbo, Iverson-Freking Ecumenical award, Pope John XXIII award (with Donna), Bishop Heiss Founder's award for Catholic Identity from Bishop Jerome Listecki, honorary member of La Crosse Downtown Rotary, and honorary 50 year member of the Knights of Columbus of the Notre Dame Council.  He had three scholarships in his name: La Crosse Tribune Extra Effort/Bill Medland Scholarship, President Medland Endowed Scholarship for first generation college students, and the Bill and Donna Medland Endowed Scholarship for student service to Viterbo and/or the La Crosse community.

     Survivors include his devoted and loving wife Donna; daughters, Bridget (Evan) Tepper of Largo, Fla. and Jeanne and son, Mark.  He has two brothers, Dick of Tucson, Arizona, and Tim of Indianapolis, Indiana, and three grandchildren, Paige and Aidan Tepper and Brooklyn Medland.

     He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Tom.

     A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, August 23, 2013, at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, 1031 Main Street, Onalaska.  Monsignor Steve Kachel and Father Robert Cook will officiate and entombment will be in the St. Francis of Assisi Mausoleum at the Catholic Cemetery in La Crosse.  Family and friends may call at the church on Friday from 9:00 a.m. until time of service.

     The Dickinson Family Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
