Sharing the Passing of a Beloved Friend by Jaime Woodard
It is with great sadness and fond memories that I am sharing the sad news that of a wonderful person, friend and former FACSE member and leader, Lucy Calhoun passed away on February 12, 2015 in Kelso, WA. She was an energetic, caring and positive role model for many, including me. I taught at R.A.Long and Lucy was at Kelso. She said “I’ll be secretary if you are the area chair for our region” and so we did that. Lucy was like that…she was a tireless worker and encourager. She retired after more than 40 years of teaching in 1991, but continued to dedicate her life to many charities. Her obituary is in the Longview Daily News (tdn.com/obits). A memorial celebration is planned for 11 a.m. Feb. 28, 2015 at the Kelso First United Methodist Church.
The mission of Family and Consumer Sciences Educators (FACSE) section of WA-ACTE is to provide leadership and services to the members through advocacy, education, networking and recognition. Members are valued as professionals facing the challenges of empowering individuals and families in a diverse global society.
