In Memoriam Daphne McCree

We mourn the death of Daphne McCree on February 18, 2016 at age 81.  The Greenspace Alliance was one among many causes Daphne was involved in.  She was a member and friend for many years and always helped out with the annual plant sale.

A memorial gathering took place on February 23 at Beechwood Cemetery.  We saw pictures of Daphne, as a young lady and in later years and, on notecards and in small conversations with her many friends, contributed anecdotes about Daphne’s life.

Here is the memorial pamphlet. The poem is High Flight by John Gillespie Magee Jr. (1941).
