November 2017 by Staff
1947 - 2017
Nancy Glenn of Action Mining Services passed away on September 22, 2017 of natural causes. Nancy had been a key part of Action Mining ever since it incorporated in 1979. She worked there with her husband Mike, and their daughter Jessica who joined them in 2005. Nancy also ran Popular Mining magazine throughout the 1980s and 1990s until it’s last issue in 1996.
Action Mining is a long-time advertiser, so we here at ICMJ have had the pleasure of working with Nancy for almost three decades. We’ve always known Nancy to be very easy-going, friendly, and very sharp. We are saddened by her passing.
Nancy will be greatly missed by many, including her family, all of those at Action Mining and by all who knew and had the pleasure of working with her. She was a wonderful person, wife, mom and grandmother!

1937 - 2017
It is with a heavy heart, that Michael and Daniel Bernzweig announce that their mother, Sondra (Adelson) Bernzweig, age 80, passed away September 29, 2017.
Sondra founded Detector Electronics Corp. with her husband and partner David in 1983 in the garage of their home. Together they marketed David’s patented invention under the DepthMaster® brand name.
Her company went on to become the first online retailer of metal detectors.
Sondra was known as one to share her knowledge with all. She touched the lives of countless individuals. She earned the respect and confidence of those around her and left the world a better place. She is greatly missed.

Endurance Is Golden
Feeling through the mud, I felt the weight and shape of what could only be gold. Throwing my hand in the water revealed a sixteen-gram nugget oozing with character.
