Remembering Our Friends

We would like to take this moment to remember Rural Action Society Members George Klare and Barbara Wiseman, who have both recently passed away.

Barbara Wiseman, Ph.D., had been a Giving Society member since November 2004 and was also active with the League of Women Voters. Contributions can be made in her memory to the Celebration Fund of First United Methodist Church, 2 South College Street, Athens, OH 45701.

George Klare also became a member of the Giving Society in November of 2004. Gifford Doxsee, another dear friend of Rural Action, remembers George as a “remarkable human being whose kindness and compassion touched many lives. He had very many friends who will miss him dearly.”

Our thoughts are with the friends and families of these individuals who did so much to revitalize our Appalachian community.
