Running for Rachel

In memory of Rachel Lynn Guss, Class of 2005

Running For Rachel began in an effort to support my sister, Rachel Lynn Guss, as she battled duodenal cancer. Since her passing in November 2011, our mission continues with raising awareness and funds for gastrointestinal cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Last year’s race was a huge success! We raised over $50,000 with an impressive 700 registered runners/walkers. The remarkable funds raised are currently being used for research which aims to close the gap and find new treatments for duodenal, as well as pancreatic cancer. It is our mission to support these studies until a treatment or a cure is found.

You may visit our website www.runningforrachel.myevent.com to read more about Rachel's story and our efforts to continue her fight against cancer. We would love to have your support this year! Thank you for your consideration and please let me know if you have any questions.

Michael was born February 10, 1976 in Harrisburg, PA to H. James Sheley and Patricia Sheley.

Upon graduation, Michael located to Austin, TX to work for Dell Inc. finding his professional calling in New Product Quality. Michael had a true passion and love for his chosen profession. This passion took him on to positions with Apple as a Product Quality senior manager and to Microsoft as a Sr. Director of Hardware Quality.
Michael would always say "Life is about the experiences." In living his life by this mantra, he was able to achieve more in one short lifetime than many could do in ten. He will be remembered for his cutting sense of humor (and smirk), his compassion & understanding of others, his relentless drive & dedication to achieve, his enthusiasm for Penn State football, and his intense love of travel. Most of all, he will be remembered for the happiness he received by being with the love of his life Hadley, nothing brought him more joy.
Michael lived his life with an unparalleled intensity and generosity leaving a resounding mark touching all those around him. Michael believed one's true legacy was determined by what you've done to help/change the lives of those around you. True to this legacy, was Michael's belief in organ donation. The gifts left behind due to this belief have already saved two lives and restored vision for two who had been blind. Michael would be so incredibly proud that a part of him was able to help restore four lives. He would feel that amongst all of his accomplishments that this would be the greatest one honoring the legacy of the man he strove to be.
Michael had an unbelievable love of travel with an unquenchable wanderlust. He was so driven to see/ live/ experience the whole world. For everyone who knew and loved him it makes perfect sense that his wishes were for some of his ashes to be scattered in all of the places in the world that helped shape the man he'd become. These places cumulated in fostering his quest for knowledge and his outlook on life forever holding special meaning to him.

Dr. John Alan Jefferies, Class of 1960,  passed away on  November 23rd 2011 at Saint Marys Hospital at the age of 68 years.  Dr. Jefferies was a distinguished consultant obstetrician and gynecologist at Mayo Clinic Rochester from 1976 until his retirement in 2008. He returned to the Gynecologic Division on a part-time basis until his death. Dr. Jefferies is fondly remembered by all who knew him as a humane, caring, skilled physician, tutor and mentor. He was a leading national expert on the gynecological malformations caused by Diethylstilboestrol exposure in utero. His magnum opus, “Structural anomalies of the cervix and vagina in women enrolled in the Diethylstilbestrol adenosis (DESAD) project” published in 1984 remains a classic reading. His early interest in the medical management of gynecological cancers led to a fruitful and endearing career in what is now known as medical oncology. He was an early active member of the Gynecologic Oncology Group, the North Central Cancer Treatment Group and true to the depth of his knowledge, interest and expertise - served as the chair of the Labor Guidelines Taskforce of the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement. Latterly, he served as a rich fountain of knowledge and mentor to resident staff, medical students and faculty colleagues in diagnosing and treating rare gynecological disorders.

He had a warm and engaging personality with a dry sense of humor. His probing intelligence with his sense of adventure made him a joy to spend time with. He enjoyed traveling and for all his worldly knowledge, lived quite simply. He was once asked why he never owned a sophisticated camera to take pictures of the places he traveled to; he responded, “The best picture is what you see with your own eyes.”

Dr. Jefferies was born (one of a set of twins) in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on December 15, 1942. He graduated from Gettysburg College, Pennsylvania, Phi Beta Kappa, Jefferson Medical College, Pennsylvania, Alpha Omega Alpha, and subsequently enrolled in the Army where he served with distinction as a Major in Ansbach Germany from 1969 -1972. He then finished a 4-year residency training program in obstetrics and gynecology at Mayo Clinic Rochester where he distinguished himself and was awarded the Lawrence Randall Travel Award for outstanding service and clinical excellence. He joined the staff at Mayo Clinic Rochester in 1976 and continued in his role as a consultant until his retirement in 2008. He belonged to many professional organizations including the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Minnesota OBGYN Society and American Society of Law and Medicine.
He is survived by his wife, Lan Bui Jefferies; his 5 children, John Jefferies Jr., Caryll (Scott) Jefferies Semmler, Michael (Darbi) Jefferies, Lisa Anne Jefferies, Diana Bui Nguyen; twin brother, George (Nancy) Edwin Jefferies III; Sisters-in-law, Than (That) Bui, Mao(Khang) Bui, Ngo Bui, Lien (Hao) Bui; Brother-in-law, Ngoc (Mai) Bui; and 3 grandchildren, Skye, Jade and Brett.

Jeff Donbach, Class of 2010. Our loving son, brother, friend, grandson, and uncle, Jeffrey K. Donbach, Jr. has left this earth to travel to a better place in Heaven on Thursday, August 8, 2013. He was our best friend, best son, best everything. He was "diesel" as he said to describe anything he considered cool… which was so him.

After graduation from Bryn Mawr College, she completed a year in Yale Law School before transferring to the Yale Graduate School, where she earned a masters degree in English. In summers she worked as a volunteer in projects of the United Church of Christ (UCC). While working for racial peace and justice in an inner-city congregation in Cincinnati, she met William Rader, a pastor, whom she married in 1963.
While living in Elizabethtown, PA from 1963 to 1966, Clara became a full-time member of the English Department faculty of Elizabethtown College. From 1967 to 1970, Clara and William lived in Basel Switzerland. Clara took theology, literature and art courses at the University of Basel, sang in the University Choir, and used her superb editorial skill to enhance her husband's theology dissertation.
After returning from Basel in 1970, Clara and her husband began serving St. John's United Church of Christ in Boalsburg, PA where their two children, Benjamin and Ann, were born and raised. Clara led groups in Bible study, mothers' support and communication skills, and led a children's choir.
In 1980, Clara became a UCC Commissioned Minister in Penn Central Conference, with special responsibility for political advocacy and helping local congregations in the areas of Christian Education and peace and justice. She was founding chair of the Peace Academy of the Conference and was a member of the national Working Group, responsible for implementing the fellowship between the United Evangelical Church in Germany and the UCC. In this context, Clara's persistence led to a project daring at the time - a year long visit from a "Peace Partner" pastor from East Germany. As first chair of the Conference's Partnership Committee, Clara led an official visit to the church in Germany in 1992.
After moving to the Harrisburg area in 1992, Clara taught as an adjunct faculty member in the English Department of Harrisburg Area Community College through Spring 2011. She did a lot of work for adjunct faculty advocacy. Clara especially appreciated meeting with students one on one. She helped students express their ideas cogently by seeking sources of information from many perspectives. She practiced what she taught and was a responsible citizen of her country and of the world, taking an active part in recent historic political campaigns.
Clara had a gift for bringing people together. One example is a circle of women who had been Girl Scouts in Paxtang in the 1950s and still celebrate reunions today. Another is a group of Bryn Mawr alumnae, whom Clara gathered, and who still meet regularly.
Clara enjoyed walking, canoeing, swimming, camping, travel, reading, and music. Her great joy was her family – spending time with husband Bill, with son Benjamin, his wife Elke, and their children Joel, Emele and Luke, and daughter Ann, her husband Edgar and their sons Josiah and Micah. She was deeply thankful for her younger sister, Martha and her husband Ray, Martha's children Orion and Wendy, and Wendy and Leslie's children Tristan and Hollin. Her gifts of listening and hospitality, her feisty spirit, her yearning for justice and peace, particularly for the most vulnerable, has been a tremendous blessing to those of us who know and love her.
In 2004, Clara and her family founded Freedom Farm Community, a Christian nonprofit organization in Mount Hope, NY. Freedom Farm shares fresh produce with people who are hungry and provides a vibrant place for ministry with young people from surrounding areas such as the South Bronx and Middletown, NY who come to take part in organic farming. Clara was instrumental in building relationships with neighbors Rick and Julie Vreeland, who have been of enormous help and have started a sister organization, a dairy called Freedom Hill Farm. An exciting part of Freedom Farm for Clara and her family has been the way God sends many types of people to join in making Freedom Farm a sign of God's love.
