TAUGHER KIN HONOR PATRIARCH
The family of Stuart P. Taugher, left, the former mayor, county representative and a force in the establishment of the Cooperstown Emergency Squad, gathered at Doubleday Field Monday, April 25, for the unveiling of a plaque in the patriarch’s memory. “His appreciation of Doubleday Field led to a renewed appreciation for this important piece of baseball history,” the plaque reads in part. Mayor Joe Booan and Ted Peters, a colleague of Taugher’s in community-improvement efforts, spoke. Taugher and wife Jody raised five daughters on Maple Street, four of whom were at the ceremony: seated from left, twins Jacqueline Ruck and Colleen Sheldon, both of Milford, Pa.; Karen Taugher, New Hartford, and Patricia Schultz, Fly Creek. (The fifth daughter, Marcia Pugliese, Cooperstown, was ill and could not attend.) Standing are, from left, Jacqueline’s husband Richard; Colleen’s husband Scott and their son Liam; granddaughter Stephanie Nelen and her children, daughter Rory, son Miles and baby Lanie (on Colleen’s lap); granddaughter Bridget Bertram and her son Tyler; granddaughter Jacqueline Sheldon, and granddaughter Rebecca McManus with husband Jon and son Park.
