From the Archives – Lola Leach, 1900 – 1985 – A Dedicated Member
By Doug Sadler
Few of today’s membership knew Lola Leach for she was a quiet, background person. She died earlier this month at the age of 85, having been a member of the Club for as long as anyone can remember.
Although her enjoyment of nature was personal and unassertive, she was among our most faithful members and contributed greatly over the years. For a long time she carried the job of Treasurer. She was Membership Secretary for some years. Although she never seems to have gone on a Christmas Bird Count, she volunteered to host the excited and ravenous horde at her home for year after year.
She rarely missed a meeting, and never seemed to change much. I had the opportunity to chat with her for a little while at the last meeting I was able to go to, and found her as cheerful and lively as ever, in her quiet way. Death was quick and unexpected. We shall miss you Lola.
