Sad News

It is with great sadness that I write of the passing of Audrey Zeh on Saturday, August 12th. Although Audrey had been too ill to
come to the meetings in recent years, she
kept up with the news of HADS, reading the UPDATE and enjoying the daylilies. Audrey was the HADS Historian for many years and it is thanks to her diligence and that of Pat and Don Salhoff in keeping the HADS records that we were able to see some of our history at
the HADS 25th birthday party last year. The service for Audrey will be private. Our
heartfelt condolences go out to her sister, Christl Schmidt.
