IN MEMORIAM

The Winchester League of Women Voters lost another friend and community leader on November 23rd when Marcia Barrows Wood died. Marcia was a long-time member of the League, serving on the the board and as its president. She understood the League and League priorities and was always a reasoned and wise voice at Board meetings and at annual meetings, where she served as the Parliamentarian.


A woman of many talents, Marcia was an artist, collector, and scholar of antique lace; she served as president of the Winchester Historical Society and, most recently, led the Winchester Council on Aging.


A celebration of Marcia's life will be held on January 10, 2015, at 1:00 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Society, 478 Main Street, Winchester. For more information, please see the obituary that appeared in the Winchester Star.
