Dr. Robert C. and Marjorie I. Howell
Bob and Marge were married June 22, 1947, the year of Bob’s graduation from the University of Pittsburgh Dental School. After serving as a dentist in the U.S. Navy, they returned to Ashland where Bob served his patients for 45 years above the Huntington Bank, retiring in 1994. The Howell family consists of three sons, six grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
In 1997, Bob and Marge wanted to giveback to the community, granting aid to those who needed a helping hand, decided to grant this supervised gift as a legacy in the form of a Charitable Remainder Trust in the capable hands of the Ashland County Community Foundation. Those chosen agencies who they felt needed aid, derive income from this gift and also benefit from their investment.
Mrs. Howell stated, “Our pilgrimage on God’s beautiful earth is a brief one and aid given for each other is a special gift. John Wesley so eloquently wrote: ‘Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can.’ This is a wonderful opportunity, showing people that you really care!”
