Bernice Lorraine Lee Blume, a longtime member of the Wilmington Skating Club, passed away after a long illness on May 8 at her home in Highland Woods, Del. She was 94. She skated pairs and was a regional judge.
Ms. Blume also created dramatic costumes for competition skaters training at the Wilmington Skating Club and for the club’s annual ice show. Bernice was born on Jan. 7, 1919, at home
in Wannaska, Minn., where her father was the postmaster, general store owner and a farmer. She graduated from high school in Roseau, Minn., attended Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn., and received her nursing degree from the Luther- an Deaconess School of Nursing in Chicago. Following her marriage to Roe C. Blume on
Dec. 25, 1940, she moved with him to New York City. Before the birth of their first child, she was a nurse at Fitch’s Sanitarium Hospital in the Bronx. With her family, she joined the Lutheran
Church of the Good Shepherd in 1958 when her husband was transferred to Wilmington from Waynesboro, Va., and remained a faithful mem- ber until her death. Over the years, she served the congregation in a number of capacities, even sewing choir robes when needed. Guided by her faith, she promoted human rights through her own actions and opinions. With her husband, she joined the Restaura-
tion Lodge, Third District, Sons of Norway when it was formed nearby in Pennsylvania. For many years, she served as lodge treasurer and later as auditor. During that time she guided the invest- ment of lodge funds, ensuring a stable financial future.
Bernice especially enjoyed creative activi-
ties. She spent many hours working in the natu- ralized woodland garden she created. She was an inspiration to her daughters because of her intellectual curiosity, pursuing interests in comparative religion, art, music and theater. Even her sewing and gardening were pursued with scholarly intensity. She is survived by two daughters, Cara Lee
Blume, PhD, of Dover, Del., and Lektor Martha Ann Martinsen of Lillehammer, Norway; a son, J. Erik Blume and his wife Aiying Lu of Vista, Calif.; six grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; as well as a host of friends in all walks of life.

Norman Evan Fuller, who served as a team
manager of U.S., World and Olympic teams in the 1960s and 1970s, died April 30, 2013, at his Idaho home after a lengthy illness. He was 83. He was born on Jan. 15, 1930, in Lynwood
Calif., to the late Everett Orlo and Dorotha Fuller. He was the eldest of their five sons. A hard worker, he was born with an en-
trepreneurial and inventive spirit that never abated. At the age of 4 he delivered pies for his great-grandmother; he continually took odd jobs throughout his youth in order to care for his me- nagerie of pets and to buy the first of many cher- ished cars. Despite his modest upbringing in Compton,
Calif., he convinced his parents to buy him a vio- lin, and his natural talent garnered him an invita- tion to perform at the 1939 New York World’s Fair when he was 9 years old. In his teens, Norman trained to become an
ice dancer and went on to win the bronze med- al with Joan Zamboni at the 1949 Pacific Coast Championships. He remained active in the sport as a judge and vice president of U.S. Figure Skat- ing.
After graduating from high school in 1949,
he joined the U.S. Naval Reserve. He was an em- ployee of Dumont Aviation, working his way up from stock boy to salesman and broadening his entrepreneurial skills. In the early 1950s he saw substantial success with his invention of an in- flight fueling indicator, permitting him to become an independent investor in property and innova- tions such as electric vehicles and magnetic tools. In 1961, his development of an advanced
electrical motor for Boeing and additional prod- ucts for the U.S. Government grew his fledgling company, American Electric, into an organization of 1700 employees. He sold the company in 1968 and became a director at City Investing in New York, though corporate life never quite suited him. In 1973, he established Diamond Plastics, a styrene manufacturer and CS&M Inc., a building system company based in Chino, Calif., develop- ing both into global corporations with licensed factories around the world. In 1977, he moved with his family to Sun
Valley, Idaho, and purchased the Alpenrose Hotel, Galena Lodge and a ranch at Magic Reservoir. He was involved in the community in Sun Valley and served on the board of the Sun Valley Center for the Arts and Humanities. Ever an optimist, he will be remembered by
those who knew him as a brilliant, industrious man whose ideas were truly ahead of their time.
Many will recall his commanding presence, his feeling for humor and his challenging character. He was equally at ease behind the wheel of a bull- dozer or at a formal banquet with Saudi Arabian royalty.
Norman suffered the first of three debilitat-
ing strokes in 1986. Despite his decreasing ability to communicate and his declining physical health he was never without commentary and remained engaged with the creation of new innovations, experiments and concepts for investment. He was seldom seen without one of the yellow legal pads on which he jotted his ideas and planned his ventures.
He is survived by his wife, Judianne (1964
Olympic, three-time Worlds and two-time U.S. champion pairs skater); his children, Paul, Glenn, Gerri, Lyle, Brian, Laura, Melissa and Rebecca; and 15 grandchildren. His daughter MaryAnn, son Ja- son, and first wife Patricia preceded him in death. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to
help children realize their own dreams as he did. Please direct any gifts in his honor to The Sage School, P.O. Box 30, Hailey, ID 83333.
GOODMAN (Obituary appeared in the Philadelphia In-
quirer on March 19.) Warren B. Goodman, 91, of Bala Cynwyd, an
ice skater who won championships in the 1930s, died March 14, 2013, of a heart attack while visit- ing his daughter in Los Angeles. Born in Philadelphia, Mr. Goodman started
skating at age 11 with skates he found in an attic. With the exception of two lessons from a profes- sional, he was self-taught. In 1937, while attending West Philadelphia High School, he won the Middle Atlantic States Men’s Junior Championships; in 1938, he won the Philadelphia District Men’s Junior Champi- onships; in 1939, he won the Men’s Senior title at the Middle Atlantic Championships; and in 1940, he competed at the U.S. Championships in Cleve- land, where he placed fourth in the men’s novice division. Mr. Goodman wrote in an account of his life
that he wanted to perform as an ice skater for a living, but fate did not smile on that plan. “My parents would not allow me to accept
a contract with the Ice Capades, so I joined the Navy,” he wrote. Mr. Goodman served in the Navy for five
years, through World War II. He taught aquatic warfare as a chief petty officer. While serving, he skated to entertain troops
