Thirty-two-year-old Michael Cox survived a near-fatal case of sepsis.
I’ve worked at St. Anthony’s Medical Center for five years, so I thought I understood how we touch people’s lives. But two weeks before Christmas, I experienced it first-hand. My 32-year-old husband, Michael, came down with the flu. Two days later, he was in the Intensive Care Unit at St. Anthony’s with strep pneumonia – a dangerous situation that quickly turned into sepsis, leaving him unconscious and on a ventilator. I sat with Michael while he fought for his life. As he started to improve, I asked one of his physicians how I could ever thank everyone for saving his life. Dr. Robert Griesbaum looked at me and said, “This is what we do.” Today, as I watch Michael at home, playing with our two children, I am forever grateful. St. Anthony's isn't just a place I work - it's a place that saved my husband's life.

Ruth Hellstern

Volunteer Has Been Delivering Meals For More Than 40 Years
by Jennifer Grotpeter
Meals on Wheels was born of necessity. When Londoners found themselves homeless during the Blitz of WWII, those who could still prepare meals used the meager supplies available, cooked meals, and delivered them to the hungry. Some delivery volunteers had cars, while still others used prams stuffed with straw to keep the food hot. Eventually, the Meals on Wheels concept jumped the Pond and came to the U.S., bringing warm hearts and warm food together to feed those who are unable to cook for themselves. Ruth Hellstern of Des Peres was an early volunteer for the program in Webster Groves, and has recently retired after more than 40 years of service. Church Women United, an ecumenical women’s group, brought Meal on Wheels to the St. Louis area in 1972. The late Ruth Hunter, wife of Webster Groves Presbyterian Church Head Pastor Rev. Thom Hunter, was a founding member of Church Women United. She and her colleagues realized that many elderly members of their congregations were obliged to enter care facilities or simply go hungry. They lacked the ability or mobility to prepare their own meals. Tapping into the church resources she had, Mrs. Hunter organized those who wanted to help, and Meals on Wheels in St. Louis first rolled out. “Many members of our church were involved early on in volunteering,” said Deon Lee, Coordinator of Congregational Connections for Webster Groves Presbyterian Church. Native St. Louisan Ruth Hellstern moved to Webster Groves in the 1960s. “Jobs would sometimes take us away from St. Louis, but we always wound up back here,” she explained. A friend of hers was volunteering with Meals on Wheels, but one day was unable to take her shift. “The meals, usually six, are made at hospitals and nursing homes, and volunteers pick them up and quickly deliver them to the clients so that they are still warm,” Hellstern said. “A friend asked me to sub for her out of St. Mary’s Hospital. I volunteered to help, but I didn’t know Clayton very well and kept getting lost. I don’t think anyone got a warm meal.” Hellstern soon went to a more familiar area, working with Bethesda cont. p. 6 Ruth Hellstern recently retired from Meals On Wheels after 40 years of service. photo by Ursula Ruhl

Volunteer Extraordinaire Ruth Hellstern from page 4
Dilworth on Big Bend in Oakland and delivering to Webster Groves and Shrewsbury. She drove meals one day a week. “I tried to get them their meals as quickly as possible, especially those for diabetics. I would try to get them theirs first,” Hellstern said. Meals are available for a variety of circumstances, including low salt, diabetic, even Kosher. “Sometimes there’s soup, usually a salad, an entrée, sometimes ice cream or pudding, milk, it’s a well-rounded meal,” said Hellstern. After several years in Webster Groves, Hellstern moved to Des Peres and began volunteering for Normandy Osteopathic Hospital (now Des Peres Hospital at 2345 Dougherty Ferry Road) and continued until her recent retirement, ending more than 40 years of service to the community. “I am moving to Columbia to be closer to my daughter, otherwise I would continue,” she said. “Meals on Wheels delivers five days a week, no matter what the weather. We are like the postman. I have even delivered on Thanksgiving. If they have a meal, we get it to them. “We serve people who want to stay in their homes, but can’t stand at the stove or the sink,” Hellstern continued. “There was a time when I would serve people for years, but more and more, it’s short term. Now there are more avenues for older people, and we see people for only two or three weeks, often after they have been released from hospitals.” A few clients stand out in her memory. “The men are a bit reticent to talk, but I always devoted time to them when they wanted to tell me a funny story. I made sure the gentleman who read the almanac was my last stop so I could give him my full attention, and no one’s meal would get cold,” Hellstern recalled. “One gentleman who was wheelchair-bound had his sister bring him a box of candy to give to me. I was very humbled.” Hellstern may be leaving the St. Louis area, but she will not stop volunteering. “I’ll find something,” she said, “I’ll be 91 in September, but have excellent health. I know there are organizations that can use my help. Maybe a hospital, the USO, or the historical society. I’d like to pay back some of the benefits we have had, and give back in time and effort if I can. My sister, Dorothy Showman, is still volunteering at age 93!” In 1993, Meals on Wheels of Greater St. Louis incorporated and became the umbrella organization under which 16 different local programs operate. It is all-volunteer, with no paid staff, and does not receive federal or state monies. Volunteers do client intake, pack meals, deliver them, do bookkeeping, and a variety of other tasks. “Meals on Wheels is a delightful opportunity to serve,” Hellstern said. Hellstern may be leaving the St. Louis area, but she has no plans to stop volunteering. At right, Hellstern delivers one of her final meals as a Meals on Wheels volunteer. photo by Ursula Ruhl

Cartoon Collector Bill Wilson
Bill Wilson collects works from big-name artists in the cartoon profession
by David Baugher
When you walk into William “Bill” Wilson’s apartment, Prince Valiant greets you at the door, Beetle Bailey is next to the kitchen and Steve Canyon occupies a nearby office. Meanwhile, Blondie is in the bathroom and Popeye is resting in the bedroom. “It’s a different art form and very little understood,” said Wilson, 83, of his extensive cartoon collection. “People just think it’s a bunch of funny pictures, but they don’t understand the artistic talent of these cartoonists drawing and doing all this.” After a half-century of interest in the topic, Wilson certainly understands it well enough and he has the evidence on paper to prove it. The walls of the Kirkwood resident’s Aberdeen Heights apartment are populated by some of the biggest names from the funny papers, from Mutt & Jeff to the Wizard of Id, all handsomely framed and on display in every room. In addition, editorial cartoons are present, with drawn panels featuring caricatured representations of everyone from Ronald Reagan to Saddam Hussein, all of which once appeared in newspapers such as USA Today, the Chicago Tribune and, of course, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Wilson said he has perhaps a couple of hundred items in his extensive collection, some bought from dealers or galleries, but most coming from the cre-

I just got interested and started collecting when I was young and have been doing it ever since,” said Bill Wilson of his extensive collection of cartoons. photo by Diana Linsley ators themselves. All are original pieces done by the artists’ hand. “Any time I can get an original drawing, if I like it, I’ll try and get it, especially artists I respect and think highly of their work,” he said. For Wilson, a New Jersey native who came to the St. Louis area in the late 1950s after his service in the Air Force, drawing was an avocation he enjoyed from a young age. By 1960, he began to amass a trove of work from some of the greats. “One of my friends in Washington, D.C., had a huge collection of original artwork, cartoons, editorials, panel drawings and comic strips,” recalled Wilson. “That sort of got me interested because he had them all over his house and it was just beautiful. I just got interested and started collecting when I was young and have been doing it ever since.” A bond trader for much of his career, Wilson retired from A.G. Edwards years ago, but even his time in finance played a role in his love of cartoons. There are only two framed originals by Wilson himself on display. Both are editorial cartoons he drew regarding the world of finance. “Here’s one I did for one of the New York trade papers,” he said, indicating a sketch in his office.

Of course, sometimes his career would allow for opportunities to acquire artwork as well. Wilson’s approach was surprisingly simple. “When I was in New York on business, a lot of times, after I’d finish my calls, I’d call an artist whose work I admired, get to know him, maybe have lunch with him and ask him for a drawing,” said the grandfather of four. “Nowadays, it’s getting very difficult because these guys are selling their stuff on the market and getting a pretty good price for it so it is hard to get some of these originals from the top guys.” Those conversations allowed him to meet with everyone from Peanuts’ Charles Schultz to Pulitzer Prize winning St. Louisan Mike Peters of Mother Goose & Grimm. “I don’t even mention my collection except occasionally. I just get to know them, ask them for a drawing and tell them how I’m interested in their work. Would they part with one?” he said. “You’ve got to get to know them and let them know you are one of them. Then they more or less accept you into the crowd.” Wilson even attends the annual convention of the National Cartoonists Society, of which he is a member. He said cartoonists share a number of traits that contribute to their creative impulses. “They all have a very specific type of sense of humor,” Wilson said. “I’ve always found them very friendly and cordial. The ones I’ve met have been great. I’ve struck up some good friendships.” One of those friendships was with

Kirkwood native Mike Peters signed this editorial cartoon “To William - Best From Your Pal.” photo by Diana Linsley Dan Martin, now the artist behind the Post’s famous Weatherbird, the longestrunning continuously published cartoon in the country. And, of course, there is a Weatherbird on Wilson’s kitchen wall. Entitled “Restaurant in Peace,” it commemorates the closing of the old Busch’s Grove, Wilson’s favorite eatery. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Wilson’s collection is that so few are aware of it. He rarely speaks about it and only recently showed it to fellow residents of his apartment complex, an event brought on when Martin happened to come by to give a presentation. Wilson said fellow residents appeared impressed by the sketches on his walls. “They seemed like they liked it and were interested with a lot of nice comments,” he noted. Though now a resident of Kirkwood, Wilson lived most of his life in Webster Groves, a place he likened to his own birthplace, Westfield, N.J. “Beautiful place – the spitting image of Webster Groves,” he recalled. “That’s probably one reason I loved getting to Webster. It reminded me of my hometown, which was a wonderful community.” But, of course, he also has a connection to another community – the artistic community. “I sit in here and do all my work and look at them all. I just enjoy these drawings,” he said. “The more I study them, the more I appreciate the ability of the artists.”

Play Bridge With Retired Men’s Club At Webster Presbyterian
The Retired Men’s Club of Webster Groves Presbyterian Church is seeking men to join a fun and friendly group of bridge players. The club was started in 1955 by members of the church to help make needed repairs. When church repairs were completed, the men started playing bridge. The men continue to meet and play bridge and are looking for new members to join this long-lasting community of men. The club meets at Webster Groves Presbyterian Church, 45 W. Lockwood Ave. at Gore, every Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to noon. It’s open to men of all faiths. For more information, call 892-5319 or 965-6620.

Balance Exercises Can Help Prevent Falls In Senior Adults
For Americans 65 and older, falling down can be the worst thing to happen to them, according to statistics from the National Council on Aging: • One in three seniors experiences a significant fall each year • Every 18 seconds, a senior is admitted into an emergency room after losing balance and hitting the ground • Every 35 minutes an elderly person dies from a fall — the leading cause of death for seniors “It’s important for seniors to keep moving and learning, that’s what helps improve balance and coordination, and even helps build new neural pathways,” according to Karen Peterson, author of “Move With Balance: Healthy Aging Activities for Brain and Body,” (www.MoveWithBalance. org). Peterson suggests a number of exercises for strength and balance such as: • The cross-crawl: After various light warm-ups, march in place, lifting the knees high. At the same time, reach across and touch the lifted knee with the opposite hand or elbow; alternate and keep going. This can be done sitting, standing or lying down. Once any of these exercises are mastered, participants should continue to challenge themselves, Peterson said. For even greater balance work, and to exercise the vestibular system, close eyes and count backwards from 100 by threes. • Forward toe-touch dancer: To improve motor skills, physical coordination and cognition, there are many dance exercises that are appropriate for seniors. If needed, use a chair for assistance. Place feet shoulder-width apart. Now, simultaneously extend left foot and right arm forward. Keep left toes pointed down, touching the floor; or for more difficulty, maintain the toes a few inches off the floor. Repeat this move with left arm and right foot. Hold each pose for several seconds, and increase holding time. • Sensory integration – the arrow chart: Look at an arrow chart and call out the direction indicated by each individual symbol. Then, thrust arms in that direction; in other words, say and do what the arrow indicates. For an additional challenge, do the opposite of what the arrow indicates. • Side-step walk: Walk sidestepping – bring right foot across the left and step down three to five inches away from the left foot, ankles crossed. The closer the feet, the harder it is to balance. Alternate crossing the foot in front and then behind the other foot; repeat several times, then do the same with opposite feet. As a bonus challenge, try a reading exercise from a vision card, designed for stimulating the brain/visual system, while sidestepping. • The cat jump: This activity is practiced in case of a fall; the muscle memory of the movement will be etched in an individual’s body. Bend knees in a squat. Jump a little off the ground with both feet, and land softly, like a cat, without jarring the body. Repeat until confident in ability to prevent a spill.
