Barb Lescher RIP
As I'm sure many of you have heard, our dear director, Barb Lescher, has died. Saturday night she and her family took a pack of turkey sandwiches downtown, her normal walk. Nobody saw her Sunday, and when she failed to report for work on Monday, Salvation Army called her daughter Anna. Her Son-in-law Nate found her on the floor on Tuesday morning, the coroner says most likely a heart attack sometime Saturday Night. She will be cremated and a private service February 4th. Still to be scheduled will be a celebration of her life, sometime late in February. Since OPP was a large part of her life, Nate says we will be intimately involved in the celebration; Tom Owens from the board of directors has stepped up. At this point, the plan is to keep Our Peaceful Place going, but the board meeting scheduled for this Saturday is canceled. RIP Barb. You were a living saint and an inspiration to us all.
