Virginia Lovrance "Lovens" Fritsch, who founded the Citizens on Patrol neighborhood watch in Bolton Hill, died Saturday of lung and liver cancer at the home on Laurens Street where she had lived all her life. She was 80. "She was secretive about her age," said Barbara White, a friend from Bolton Hill, "so secretive that when the Mount Royal Improvement Association announced a contest for the person who had lived in the neighborhood the longest, she refused to enter -- even though she had lived here two years longer than the person who won."

John Hale's pride in his Bolton Hill corner residence glows during the Christmas season, when the home sparkles from the inside out. Candles gleam from many of the 50 windows along the three-story home's 150-foot length on Lafayette Street and its narrow 14-foot-wide front on Park Avenue. A large Palladian window crowns the Georgian-style main entrance, which opens onto a 9-foot-tall Christmas tree in the front hall. Holiday songs and carols are piped into every room, while highly polished mahogany tabletops reflect candlelight and accent lamps.
