Obituaries from Two Days Ago

FITZPATRICK, DAYLE  
DAYLE FITZPATRICK Dayle Fitzpatrick, of Las Vegas, slipped away from us Friday, April 8, 2016, and is now with the angels. Just three days shy of her 58th wedding anniversary, she was able to celebrate it with her husband, Richard Fitzpatrick, in Heaven. Dayle was born in Uniontown, Pa., and grew up with her brother, Leonard Satmary, who recently passed away. The family moved to Dayton, Ohio, where she met the love of her life, Richard, while attending Oakwood High School. After college years at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, and Richard's military service with the U.S. Air Force, they were married and moved to Portales, N.M. This is where her beloved children, Douglas and Theresa were born and life began. The family moved to Las Vegas, in the late 60's where they set their roots and built an idyllic life. Both were educators in the Clark County School District for 30-plus years. Dayle received her bachelors from UNLV and masters from Northern Arizona University. She taught English at Bonanza, Valley, Rancho and Las Vegas High Schools. She ended her career as a Dean of Students at Burkholder Middle School. Retirement suited Dayle as she was able to travel to all corners of the earth, canvassing all major continents aside from Antarctica. History, art, music, culture and humanism were her passions. Besides the adoration for her family, Dayle's second love was playing bridge with her life-long friends. If the sky were falling, she would find a way to make it to her bridge gathering, as she loved it so. Her girlfriends meant the world to her. Dayle is survived by her son, Douglas Fitzpatrick and wife, Tracey; daughter, Theresa Blazic; and granddaughters, Leslie and husband Brett Peterson, Adrienne Logan and Natalie Blazic; grandson, Kyle Fitzpatrick; and great grandchildren, Brenan, Kylah and Averie. In honor of Dayle and her love of baseball, a memorial will be at 6 p.m. Friday, May 6, at Cashman Field Club Level Restaurant, 850 Las Vegas Blvd N., Las Vegas. The Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Dodgers were her favorite teams. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Las Vegas Humane Society or Nevada SPCA. Dayle loved animals and enjoyed owning cats, dogs, chickens and thoroughbred race horses. May she be too busy shaking hands in heaven to know that we are missing her greatly.

TOBMAN, JEAN  
JEAN TOBMAN Jean Tobman, 90, widow of entrepreneur and civic leader Herb Tobman, of Las Vegas, passed away the morning of Saturday, April 23, 2016, surrounded by family members. Jean and Herb Tobman were instrumental in founding WestCare, a Las Vegas drug rehabilitation clinic, which now has locations in 17 states. The Tobmans bore witness to formative decades in Las Vegas history, having arrived in 1953, after visiting Jean Tobman's mother, who had recently moved here. "We drove back to New Jersey, packed up as quickly as possible to come to this beautiful, beautiful desert," Jean Tobman said Nov. 5, 2013, in an interview with the Oral History Research Center at UNLV. And the Las Vegas Valley was a good fit. "The serenity, the warmth, just everybody knew everyone," she said in 2013. "There was no discrimination. Everybody got along so beautifully." After arriving in Las Vegas, Jean Tobman worked in her mother's rooming house while Herb Tobman worked with her father at City Furniture Exchange on Main Street, she said in the UNLV interview. Herb Tobman had taken out a $1,200 loan to invest in the furniture store, but a blaze destroyed it in 1955. He bought his first taxi about the same time, and the family's cab business was born. The furniture store reopened and was family-run for another 20 years. After Herb Tobman's death, 10 years ago, Jean Tobman "jumped in and filled in my father's shoes" helping to run Western Cab Co., her daughter Marilyn Moran said. "And they were big shoes to fill." Jean remained involved in the family business and passionate about philanthropic causes into her twilight years, according to her daughters. Jean Tobman's philanthropic endeavors included donating to the University Of Nevada School Of Medicine for an ongoing scholarship, according to the school. UNR's medical school student lounge is named after the Tobmans. She also supported veterans and contributed to the business and athletic departments at UNLV. The family will ensure Jean Tobman's philanthropic spirit lives on. "You know, she was the whole thing," her daughters said. "She was the matriarch and the glue for this family; now it's going to be up to the next generation to continue that legacy." She was preceded in death by her son, Alan Tobman; her grandson, Alan Joseph Martin; and her husband. Tobman is survived by her daughters, Marilyn Moran, and her husband, John, Helen Martin, and her former spouse, Tom and Janie Moore, and her husband, Barry; grandchildren, J.T. (Melissa), Addie (Kurt), Zachary, Andrew (Yolanda), Jaime (J), Rachel, Blake, and Mia; and nine great-grandchildren. Services will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, at Palm Mortuary, 1325 N Main St., Las Vegas. In lieu of flowers, the family said, donations may be made to WestCare Foundation.
