John Herron, an architect and supporter of numerous historic preservation initiatives, died Friday at his home in Worcester. He was 90. Mr. Herron was born in Chillicothe, Ohio, the son of Robert and Hazel I. (Downs) Herron. His wife of 45 years, Frances M. (Dresser) Herron, was born in Worcester and died in 1995. He is survived by his children: John Jr. and his wife, Julia L. Moore, of Cambridge; Frank F. and his wife, Sandra A. Urie, of Winchester; Josephine R. L. Truesdell and her husband, Philip A., of Worcester; and Mary D. Herron and her husband Seth F. C. Richardson of Chicago. In addition, he leaves seven grandsons: Andrew C. Herron of Boston; Stephen M. Herron of Winchester; Edward W. Herron of Syracuse, N.Y.; Samuel B. Truesdell of Worcester; Levi L. W. Herron of Cambridge; and Benjamin N. and Lincoln H. S. Richardson of Chicago. Mr. Herron attended Chillicothe public schools and Ohio State University, was graduated from Denison University, and received a master's degree in architecture from the Yale University School of Architecture. During World War II, he served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy in the Mediterranean. Mr. Herron lived in Worcester for 58 years, practicing architecture for 40 years as a sole practitioner and then as a partner in Herron & Carlson, AIA. He was a corporate member of the American Institute of Architects, a past member of the Boston Society of Architects and the State Association of Architects. He was a founder of both Preservation Worcester and the Salisbury Mansion Associates, and from 1969-72 was director of the Worcester Historical Society where he was an early advocate promoting Worcester's industrial heritage. He was a member of the American Antiquarian Society, a past corporator and past chairman of the Members Council of the Worcester Art Museum, a corporator of the Worcester Children's Friend Society, the Higgins Armory Museum and the Worcester County Horticultural Society. He was a member and vestryman of All Saints Church and a member of the Yellow Label Club, the Worcester Club, the Worcester Players Club, the Worcester Fire Society, the Bohemians, and the Worcester Shakespeare Club. In addition, he wrote innumerable letters to the editor, many of them concerning downtown Worcester and the preservation of Worcester architecture and neighborhoods. One of six original inductees into Preservation Worcester's Hall of Fame, Mr. Herron said he "moved to Worcester in 1951 as a modern architect aiming to transform the city with aluminum and glass until he saw Mechanics Hall" -- at which point he became a committed preservationist. Although fully embracing Worcester, his Ohio roots remained strong throughout his adult life, returning regularly to Chillicothe where he succeeded his siblings as managing partner of the family farms, portions of which had been acquired in the 1830's. A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, December 6 at All Saints Church, 10 Irving Street, Worcester. Contributions may be made to Preservation Worcester to support the Frannie Herron Park in Crown Hill (10 Cedar Street, Worcester 01609) or to the All Saints Church for the benefit of the choirs (10 Irving St., Worcester, 01609).

STONE-CARTER, Hannah Morgan Of Portsmouth, NH, age 4, died Friday, Nov. 28, 2008, at the Children's Hospital Boston surrounded by her loving family. Born July 3, 2004, in Portsmouth, NH, the daughter of Stephen M. Carter and Kathleen M. Stone. Hannah's lust for life and joy of play was never overshadowed by her 3 yr journey battling a rare blood cancer. In her short life, her resilience, bravery and strong constitution touched so many people and inspired them to live their lives to the fullest. Her constant vivid energy, wit, intelligence, intuitive mind, beauty, and inner strength were radiated to her family and friends, and they propagated her life force to many she never met. Hannah possessed a special charm. She loved everyone she met and they loved her in return. She always had an enthusiastic "hi" or thoughtful remark for everyone, inviting them into her circle of affection and liveliness. Though cancer struck her three times and treatment requirements were never-ending, Hannah's life was utterly filled with so many joys and fun experiences including: Sea World Make-a-Wish trip; visiting the UNH horse stables; brunches at the Wentworth; abundant projects and crafts; many favorite playground activities; and swinging - but never high enough. She wholly enjoyed the experience of eating eclectic adult foods; chasing seagulls, building castles at the beach; catching butterflies, any bug, worm or crustacean; riding her tricycle; baking cookies and cakes; reading book after book; absorbing every piece of information about all types of animals; and endless games of choreographing everyone in her many imaginary play games. Hannah is a bright light that will shine forever in our souls. Oh how she will be so dearly missed by the many she touched. Hannah was predeceased by her brother Zachariah Carter and Grandfather Robert Woody Stone and is survived by her parents, a sister, Tiffany L. Real and husband Mark of Kittery, ME; her Grandparents Frank and Emia Carter from Keller, TX, and Rita Stone from Greenland, NH. Her Aunts & Uncles: Susan Rysnik and husband John, sons Tylor & Tory; Beth Stone Hancock and her son Bryan; Robert Stone II and his wife Natalie, daughter Chrissy, sons Jason and Matthew; Jennifer Stone and her son Reece; Richard Carter and his wife Mary and daughter Jamie; Tamara Guiso and her husband Brad, son Elliott and daughter Lauren. And Hannah leaves so many beloved relatives, extended family members in the cancer community and adopted families members all over the world, plus so many treasured nurses, doctors and staff from Children's Hospital Boston and the Jimmy Fund Clinic. Visiting hours for Hannah will be held on Thursday, December 4th at J. Verne Wood Funeral Home-Buckminster Chapel, 84 Broad Street, Portsmouth, NH between 4:00-8:00pm and funeral services will be held at the North Church, downtown Portsmouth, on Fri., Dec. 5th at 11:00am.
