BERGMAN, JOEL  
JOEL BERGMAN Joel David Bergman, 80, of Las Vegas, passed away Aug. 24, 2016. He was born Aug. 20, 1936, to Harry and Edythe Bergman, in Los Angeles, and was a resident of Las Vegas for more than 25 years. Joel, a pioneering architect of modern casino design, passed away from natural causes, surrounded by his loving family. Those who worked with him respected him immensely and his projects throughout Las Vegas and the United States speak to his legacy. Joel earned a reputation for always speaking candidly and directly. His refusal to accept anything short of excellence in all aspects of his life was felt by everyone who met him. He was always ready to support a worthy cause or those in need both publicly and privately, but also incredibly generous with his time and talents while mentoring young architects. Privately, he was a husband, brother, father, grandfather and a friend to many. Joel is survived by his wife, Valentina; his sister, Diane; brother-in-law, Ray; his sons, Leonard, George, Valentin and Ivan; daughters, Alessandra and Lori; grandchildren, Daryl, Marissa, Nicolle, Lucas, Daniel and Remington; and nieces, Marnie and Stephanie.

ADAMS, MARION  
MARION ADAMS Marion Adams, 92, a former MGM dancer and 16-year Sun City Anthem resident passed away June 17, 2016, in Las Vegas. She moved west from New Jersey with her family to southern California in the early 1940's to land a messenger job at MGM and later became Lana Turner's personal secretary. Regrets, she had a few. She regretted leaving MGM and for not writing a tell-all book. She regretted throwing out a pair of jeans she wore for years around town that was embroidered with "especially made for Judy Garland." Stories were endless like the time she would sit on Clark Gable's lap and eat ice cream between takes, the times Jimmy Durante would drive her home to Ocean Park in his Model T, the time she set up Lana with Ricardo Montalban and the many private behind the scenes stories of parties and sleep-overs at Lana's house on Tigertail Road. She left MGM in the late 40's to work for GTE in Santa Monica, Calif. For the next 35 years, her first job was to take "in-person" applications for phone lines, where she signed up Stan Laurel and Ronald Reagan. After retiring from GTE, she worked five years at the fire department for Hughes Aircraft in El Segundo, Calif. She is survived by her son, Tim and daughter-in-law, Melinda, of Las Vegas. No services are scheduled.
