Our beloved and late volunteers, Rose Furbeck and her husband,
Howard , were members of the Monday morning "packin' and sackin" club. Rose also ran the food
pantry for the United Methodist Church which serves the needy who do not live in Lacey.
The Lacey Food Bank lost a friend and comrade on June 2nd, when Emil Ciangetti, former Chairman, and one of the original founders
of the food bank, died as a result of an automobile accident.
Emil, 81, was a loving father to his grandson Steve, who he adopted as a young boy. He was involved in the food bank until
his death, and belonged to many civic organizatons as well as being active in the Village Lutheran Church in Lanoka Harbor.
He is honored for his many good deeds performed within his family and his community.
Rest in Peace Friend
Ralph Lanuto, shown here with his wife Edna, was a pioneer in the foodbank, back when Emil, Ziggie and he were the only ones
manning the "fort'. An active civic minded man, he served as our liaison to clubs and organizations. We miss his hearty
laugh and helping hands.
