My name is Robert, I am Marianne Scullin's husband.
I don't know how active she has been on this site recently but I know she has talked with some folks here.

I am sorry to say that I lost her on Tuesday night, Jul. 20. I am barely able to write this I am so devasted.. she was the love of my life.

We would have been married 32 years come Oct. My only relief is the knowledge her nightmare of pain is over.

I wish ALL of you the best, I understand your plight.. believe me. If anyone wants to get in touch I can be reached at wireharp16@gmail.com

UPDATE: Body of missing student found (Texas)

By The Cougar News Services May 30, 2016

The body of missing 22-year-old Jennifer Hollis was found early Monday morning. According to a Facebook page set up by her family, Hollis took her own life after a long struggle with Lyme disease.

“The problem is that Jennifer suffered an absolutely horrible illness called Lyme disease which bore a pain that is unbearable for those who are inflicted,” Hollis’ family said in a Facebook post.

“Most people didn’t realize this about Jennifer. She suffered in silence. She tried to mask her pain and suffering with her infectious smile, laughter and enduring love of life.”

After Hollis’ family raised thousands of dollars through a GoFundMe page, they hired a private investigator to help find her. After a three week search, her family was notified at 5 a.m. that her body was found.

The family asked that in lieu of flowers, Hollis’ friends and family donate to a Lyme disease awareness charity.

OBITUARY

God just granted a beautiful young angel her wings. Jennifer Morgan Hollis was lifted to the heavens on May 30, 2016 at the age of 22.

She was also active in HITS theater, MHS choir, and enjoyed singing, dancing, piano and art.

After High School Jennifer attended the University of Texas San Antonio followed by the University of Houston.

At the time of her death she was so proud to be working as a medical assistant at The Healing Space, and was hoping to dedicate her life and pursue a health and healing profession of some sort.

During her spare time Jennifer loved to read, learn, grow, and help others. She was constantly searching for ways to be a better person, to impact the lives of others, and to walk a virtuous life with Christ.

She possessed a very strong faith and was comforted by journaling her thoughts, feelings, and devotionals to God.

It's truly astonishing to me how many of these deaths can be attributed directly or indirectly to Lyme. And these are just the deaths that have been discovered by the tireless research of people searching obituaries and those acquainted with people on this site and other Lyme sites. Imagine how many more test positive and pass away with no mention of Lyme or tick borne illness in their obituaries and even more that never even had a clue or indication that they might have this disease in the first place who pass and their deaths are never attributed to Lyme. It would be orders of magnitude greater than this long list. Each of these stories resonates deeply with me and I feel for those who felt so desperate and abandoned by modern medicine who saw no choice but to end it all. It's amazing to me how little our supposedly advanced medical sciences know about an insect disease, and the unwillingness to even address this is nothing short of criminal. The disproportionate number of ALS deaths of people who are testing positive and the number of deaths of young people on this list should lead to in depth examination of this disease by the medical community. You don't have to be a medical researcher to notice a pattern here. At some point it is far beyond just coincidence. I refuse to believe that all the family members would lie about what caused these deaths or exaggerate the struggles that these people faced for years on end. Where there is smoke there is fire. How much smoke do we need? I've never been one to be about 'Lyme activism' but looking through lists like these really angers me and demands some form of action. I am glad this is being tracked to some small extent even just by a small website so that not every Lyme death goes down in silence. And people who even discuss chronic Lyme are ridiculed. I am speechless. When will the medical community wake up and at least acknowledge this problem even if they have no solution? Year after year nothing changes and more people are dying and many many more are suffering greatly and have lost their quality of life. Something gotta give here in 2017.

RIP. I hope these deaths will not be in vain.

Another tragic loss. Rose passed away after 15 years of suffering, at the young age of 28. In lieu of flowers the family needs financial help to bury their daughter.

Rose Schwarz succumbs to Lyme disease

On Jan. 11, with her family by her side, Rose Schwarz passed away peacefully, after succumbing to complications from Lyme disease, which she battled for 15 years with much support from the community.

Coast Reporter first introduced Schwarz to the public in 2009 when it was thought she had gastroparesis, which kept her from being able to eat. Through fundraisers the community helped Rose have a stomach removal surgery, but it didn’t end her health issues.

Years later it would become evident that her stomach paralysis was linked to Lyme disease.

Because she had suffered for so long with the disease, there wasn’t much conventional medicine could do to help, so her family searched out other options and once again the community stepped up to help financially.

Despite special treatments and feeding formulas, Rose continued to lose weight and suffer the effects of long-term Lyme disease.

The community came to know her well and she and her family had a large group of public supporters.

Despite all efforts, this month, at the age of 28, Rose succumbed to her disease.

“On Jan. 11, 2017 with both of us [her parents] by her side, Rose passed away peacefully and with grace and dignity,” said Rose’s mother Tani.

“Over the years the community has opened their hearts to us and this kindness will not be forgotten. … To all the wonderful people who have supported Rose throughout her 15-year battle with Lyme disease, we are eternally grateful.”

Rose is survived by her mother Tani, father Gary, her nana Marti, her uncle Bill and uncle Wes, her stepbrother Bro and her stepsister Meadow.

“Rose’s bravery and persistence shone through her deep pain and inconceivable suffering. She soldiered on until her body finally gave out,” Tani said.

There will be a public celebration of Rose’s life on Feb. 12 at 3 p.m. at the Sechelt Legion.

In lieu of flowers the family is asking for donations to help cover the costs of the funeral.

Donations can be given online at tinyurl.com/jdzvosz or to The Rose Fund at any branch of the Sunshine Coast Credit Union.

You can also donate through PayPal at tani_schwarz@hotmail.com

There is also a Burger and Beer fundraiser planned at the Lighthouse Pub all day on Jan. 28, including a silent auction and live music starting at 1 p.m.

All proceeds will go to the family.

Woman who died from Rocky Mountain spotted fever bit while camping in western Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. - A La Crosse woman has died of a disease that's considered rare in the Midwest, health officials said.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the La Crosse County Health Department said Tuesday that the death is the first documented from Rocky Mountain spotted fever in Wisconsin.

Jo Foellimi, a La Crosse County public health nurse, says the woman was bit while camping in western Wisconsin in early May.

The woman was diagnosed with RMSF in mid-June and died days later. Foellimi says the woman was in her late 50s but declined to identify her.

RMSF most commonly occurs in the central and southeastern regions of the United States, according to a news release. Most tickborne diseases transmitted in Wisconsin are spread by the blacklegged (or deer) tick. RMSF, however, is spread by the bite of the American dog (or wood) tick.

Early symptoms of RMSF can be mild and typically include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, rash and stomach pain, DHS said. If left untreated, an RMSF infection can rapidly develop into a serious illness.

DHS encouraged Wisconsin residents to take the following steps to protect themselves and their families from tick bites while enjoying the outdoors:

Use an insect repellent with at least 20-percent DEET or another EPA-registered repellent according to the label instructions.

Use 0.5-percent permethrin products on clothing, socks and shoes according to label instructions.

Stay on trails and avoid walking through tall grasses and brush.

Wear long sleeves and pants, and tuck pants into socks and shirts into pants to avoid ticks crawling under clothing.

Check your entire body for ticks after being outdoors.

Take a shower as soon as possible after coming in from outdoors.

Place clothes in the dryer on high heat for 10 minutes to kill any ticks on clothing.

Use a veterinarian-prescribed tick prevention treatment on pets.

DHS said that of the illnesses spread by ticks in Wisconsin, Lyme disease is the most common, but ticks can also spread anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis and, more rarely, RMSF and Powassan virus.

Many people who contract a tickborne disease do not recall a tick bite, so it's also important to be aware of the common symptoms of tickborne disease, such as fever, rash, headache, body aches and fatigue.

Most diseases spread by ticks in Wisconsin can be effectively treated with antibiotics, making early diagnosis critical, health officials said. If symptoms develop after a tick bite or after possible tick exposure, see a health care provider.

Aldo Pezzi, Jr.

Aldo Pezzi, Jr., age 67, of Merrill, passed away on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at his home after an over 3 year battle with neurological Lyme disease and stroke complications.

Aldo was able to stay living at home with personal caregivers, his family, and hospice services support.

Aldo was born December 23, 1950, in Merrill, son of the late Aldo Sr. and Wanda (Widenhoft) Pezzi.

Aldo attended Merrill Senior High School and was a graduate of Northcentral Technical College, Wausau, with a degree in Automotive.

He was a self-employed logger and was often complimented for the great job he did in timber harvesting.

Earlier in his life, Aldo was an avid motocross racer and competed throughout the state of Wisconsin.

Aldo also participated in kart racing. Aldo enjoyed attending Merrill Blue Jay sporting events; open wheel and sports car races, especially at Road America; and auctions to find good buys.

Aldo enjoyed watching Badger football and basketball and shows about cars. Aldo loved his many pet dogs throughout the years and his rural lifestyle.

Aldo was an excellent mechanic and metal fabricator. Aldo had a great sense of humor that remained even during his illness.

Aldo was a great brother who taught his younger sister to ride motorcycles, use tools, fix things and he will be deeply missed.

Aldo is survived by two sisters, Christine (Bill) Burchell, Athens, Alabama, and Michelle M. (Steve C.) Plautz, Merrill; two nieces, Theresa and Angela; two great nieces, Stevie and Chrissy; two great great nieces, Aria and Presley; a great great nephew, Lane; two aunts, Lydia Bauman, Merrill, and Deana Trinitapoli of Wisconsin; his special cousin, Alfred Pezzi, Tomahawk; and many other cousins.

Thank you to all the caregivers, relatives, friends, and neighbors for their prayers, support, help, and for every kindness.

Our deepest gratitude to Fay and the team she put together to help Aldo live at home to the end – Alissa, Anna, Cassie, Denise, Kim, and Sherry.

In accordance with Aldo’s wishes, there will be no services. Taylor-Stine Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Merrill, is assisting the family.

Online condolences may be made at www.taylorstinefuneralhome.com

Memorials in Aldo’s name may be directed to a cause that is close to your heart.

In Memory of Clarissa Tilghman Yost White

EASTON — Clarissa Tilghman Yost White, aged 78 years, died Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019, in Easton, Md.

Mrs. White was born in Baltimore, Md., on June 12, 1940, to Mr. John Stevenson Long Yost and Mrs. Clarissa Tilghman Goldsborough Yost.

Mrs. White was descended from several families that were settled in Talbot County in the 17th century to include the Goldsborough, Lloyd, Tilghman and Turbutt families.

Mrs. White enjoyed the majority of her life at Ferrybridge Farm on the Miles River in Easton, Md.

Mrs. White was previously married and divorced from the late John Patterson White of Easton, Md. She is survived by her sister, Julia Goldsborough Yost of Newfoundland, Pa.; and her brother, Stevenson Yost of St. Helena, Calif.

She is also survived by her daughter, Catherine Goldsborough White Murphy of Easton, Md.; and her son, John Patterson White II of Charleston, S.C.

Mrs. White is survived by her grandchildren, Hopewell Blacker Lee Murphy, Liza Michelle White, Hannah Lloyd Clare Murphy and Joseph Tilghman White; and her daughter-in-law, Kristen Watson White. Mrs. White was preceded in death by her son-in-law, Christopher W.W. Murphy of Easton, Md.

Mrs. White was a member and supporter of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America and the Society or Lees of Virginia. When she was not at Ferrybridge Farm, Mrs. White enjoyed traveling the world and could often be found painting in Italy.

She forged many close relationships throughout her travels to parts of Asia, Australia, Africa, South America and Europe. She found happiness spending time on the water, in her garden, visiting with friends, supporting local art festival, and enjoying time with her grandchildren. Her loyal Labradors were often by her side.

Funeral services will be held on Monday, Feb. 18, 2019, at 11 a.m. at Christ Church 111 S. Harrison St., Easton, MD 21601. A family burial will be at Spring Hill Cemetery, where she will be laid to rest in the Goldsborough family plot, among her ancestors.

Sharing A Memory

When I started the first two Lyme Disease Support Groups in Maryland many years ago the majority of people and health care professionals across the state had never heard of Lyme disease.

Crissie was the first volunteer who came to help me educate and support those who were suffering. The article linked below was inspired by Crissie after her family member passed away from what was later determined to be Lyme disease.

I've highlighted in bold font the section that mentioned Crissies' loss. Of course, no names were used back then out of respect and to protect the privacy of those who passed and their families.

Crissie was very dedicated to helping others who suffered. She will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.
