MORRIS "MORRIE" MORTON, 92, of

Coconut Creek, Fla., died June 27, 2013.
He came to the U.S. from Poland at 6
months old, the youngest of eight children
and the last to survive.
A pharmacist for nearly 40 years, he
was active in his pharmacy fraternity,
serving as its national president in 1952-
1953. Following retirement and moving
to Florida in 1981, he was active in many
community charities, as well as being an
avid fisherman. In addition, he was known
for a great sense of humor.
Mr. Morton served in World War II,
was in the second class of Camp Ritchie,
therefore, a "Ritchie Boy," and was in the
European Theater of Operations with
General Patton's Third Army. Like many
other World War II veterans, he rarely dis-
cussed the war and then only anecdotal or
humorous stories, never about the war itself.
When asked to give an interview about how
it was like to be a Ritchie Boy, he refused.
The family never knew he was a highly

decorated soldier until after his death.
Mr. Morton is survived by his children,
Dr. Allan Morton and Mary Wilton, Dr.
Bonnie Benefield, Helaine and Andrew
Zack; grandchildren, Jeremy Morton,
Marcy and John Fikany, Michael Morton,
Brandon Boeke, Brett Boeke, Juli Zack and
Chris Nesheim, Katy Zack and fiance, Jon
Steinback, Emily Zack; great-grandchil-
dren Elizabeth Fikany and David Fikany.
He was the husband of late Kalmayne
Morton, whom he loved dearly.

Ave., Royal Oak, MI 48067; or to a charity of
one's choice. Interment at Clover Hill Park
Cemetery in Birmingham. Arrangements by
Hebrew Memorial Chapel.

TOBY LEIB MYERS, 78, of Barrington,

Ill., died July 4, 2013, after a courageous
16-year battle with cancer.
She was born to Frank and Belle Leib on
Nov. 5, 1934. in Pittsburgh, Pa. She spent
her formative years in Cleveland Heights,
Ohio, and graduated from Heights High
School in 1953. She attended Ohio State
University and later married Harrison
Myers in 1957.
Mrs. Myers was passionate about cook-
ing, sewing, reading and volunteering.

She always had a story or wise words of
wisdom to impart to others. Toby enriched
the lives of everyone around her. She also
had very special and close relationships
with her children. With Toby, there was
no distinction between daughter and
daughter-in-law or son and son-in-law.
She loved, respected and trusted each one
equally. Everyone loved spending time
with her as well as with each other.
Though absent from the family's lives,
she will remain forever in their thoughts,
prayers and hearts. May her memory be
for a blessing.
Mrs. Myers is survived by her four
children, Steven (Marlene) Myers of
West Bloomfield, Michael (Judi) Myers
of Palatine, Ill., Amy (Robert) Snetman
of Chattanooga, Tenn., and Elizabeth
(Edward) Slesnick of Canton, Ohio. She is
also survived by her eight grandchildren,
Sam Myers, Cecily Myers, Emily Myers,
Jordan Snetman, Blake Snetman, Cooper
Myers, Rachel Slesnick and Isabel Slesnick;
her sister, Arlene (Arnold) Shapiro; sister-
in-law, Arlene Kaplan; many loving nieces
and nephews.
