Landwehr, Joan
Joan "Jo" Landwehr - Pueblo Chieftain - March 19, 1999 - Rice Funeral Service Claremore, Okla. Joan "Jo" Landwehr. s for Jo Landwehr will be at 1 p.m. today at The Rice Funeral Service, Chapel of the Garden. Father Paul Eichhoff will officiate. Born July 7, 1932, Jo was the daughter of Oren and Zona Jarrett Fletcher. She spent her childhood in Lincoln County, Colo. While still a young lady, she began to work. And with her very excellent abilities in organization and detail, she accomplished much in her career, working with Dana Corporation, Spartan and most recently Burgess-Norton. Jo and Samuel Hans Landwehr married in 1947, in Hugo, Colo. This same area that had been so familiar during her growing up years, would remain home for Jo as a young bride. Living on a farm, she helped her husband with the tasks of rural life as well as being a devoted wife and later a mother. When they moved to Pueblo, she worked at the Army Depot, the Pueblo School District and later the Dana Corporation. This is where she began the very intricate work as a machinist. When Mr. Landwehr died in 1977, Jo decided to move. With a sister in Albuquerque, Jo chose this as her new home. She worked for Spartan through these years. In 1984, Claremore, Okla., would become her new home. This move was made easy, because it allowed Jo to live near some of her children. Jo was a very special mother, always doing special things for her much loved family. When she retired, she chose to use her free time to help them, and just one of the ways she did that was to help with their household chores, like cleaning and ironing. Again, those detail skills came in handy. With her own home meticulously kept, why not also extend this expertise to those closest to her. Her motto was `charity begins at home. And truly it did for Jo. She also loved spending time with her grandchildren -- never able to do enough for them. Those special family members that survive are her three children, Samuel Hans Landwehr Jr. and his wife, Rojean of Claremore, Kathy Jo Lorens and her husband, Chris of Grand Lake, Colo., and Debra Jean Schellhorn and her husband, Jim of Claremore and four grandchildren, Jason Hans Vidmar and his wife, Leslie, of Longmont, Colo., Kirsten Jo Vidmar of Fort Collins, Colo., and James Paul Schellhorn and Aubrey Nicole Schellhorn of Claremore. She was preceded in death by a brother, Glen Fletcher- two sisters, Hazel Darnell and Violet Garrier- her husband- and her parents. Friends may remember Jo by contributing to the Alzheimer's Association National Headquarters, 919 N. Michigan Ave., Suite 1000, Chicago, Ill. 60611-9501.

Lane, Jennifer
Jennifer Lane - Pueblo Chieftain - November 17, 2006 - Bond set in death near Trinidad - Bond has been set for Destry York, 39, who is charged with second-degree murder in the August shooting death of Jennifer Lane. Chief Deputy District Attorney Paul Wiese asked that York's bond be set at $225,000 with $200,000 of that amount for the murder charge, plus $25,000 additional bond because York is charged with two felony offenses in Washington. York is wanted as a fugitive in Washington on charges of burglary and domestic violence, as well as other misdemeanor charges. Wiese is prosecuting the case because District Attorney Lee Hawke is ill. Defense attorney Lee Downs called the bond "oppressive and unnecessary," telling District Judge Claude Appel that the defendant left Washington to be near his parents, who live in the Ludlow area. "Oppressive or not, I'm setting the bond at $200,000," Appel said, agreeing to the additional $25,000 as well. The preliminary hearing for York has been reset to Dec. 22 to give the defense time to review a 50-page sheriff's department report and audio and video statements given by Lane's 3-year-old daughter, a witness to the shooting. Both the report and the recordings were handed over to the defense less than 24 hours before attorneys were due in court. "It's obviously not fair to get a 50-page report the night before," Appel said. Charges against York were filed Aug. 28. York's father, Dennis Talley, called the sheriff's department when his son arrived at his home covered in blood, with Lane's body in his vehicle. Lane, 24, died Aug. 21 of a gunshot wound to the head, which York at first told authorities was self-inflicted. He later said he shot the woman accidentally while trying to reload the gun for her. York remains in custody at the Las Animas County Detention Center, where he has been since his arrest Aug. 28.
