|It is with sadness that we note the passing of Dorothy Minion who worked for many years as a daily Skene Memorial Library volunteer and also as a librarian substitute. Library visitors will remember Dorothy for her kind and mild demeanor and for her hard work.
Just short of her 91st birthday Dorothy died suddenly on August 31, 2019. Born in Manchester, UK on November 13, 1928 she attended school in England and, before coming to the US, worked as a bookkeeper at a cigarette factory.
With her husband Norman Dorothy emigrated to the US in August of 1964 and was employed as a secretary at Lebanon Hospital in New York City. In 1980 she moved to Fleischmanns where she has lived ever since.
In memory of our late colleague and friend, The Board of Directors of Skene Memorial Library has decided to rename the reference room The Dorothy Minion Memorial Reading Room. Donations in memory of Dorothy Minion may be made to the Skene Memorial Library, Fleischmanns, NY.
