In memoriam: Joan F. Tarleton

Sadly, we note the passing of longtime committee member Joan F. Tarleton on October 18, 2016.  A native of Oklahoma, Joan was wife, sister, mother, aunt, grandmother and great-grandmother to a loving family living in states from Louisiana to Maryland.
A loyal Democrat, Joan was our committee’s Recording Secretary for many years.  In that capacity, Joan shouldered the task of writing notes and calling all members of our committee  to remind us about upcoming meetings and events.
Although Joan hadn’t attended meetings in recent years, she caucused with us in March of this year, and was welcomed back warmly by a number of our committee members of longer standing.
An obituary was published in the Boston Globe.  Donations to local animal shelters are being accepted in her name in lieu of flowers.
