"Our dear friend Lottie Harrington "has passed away due to a stroke. She died at her home with her family by her side. She died Sunday evening, details are not available at this time and I will put them
on the site as soon as I get them." (details below)
Lottie has been a
member since 1980 and has been our Society Librarian with the books at her home, has looked up info for callers and letters, invited people into her home to research, compiled all of the obituaries from the Times or Bay County since 1983. She has been
in charge of organizing the marriage records and death records and walking cemeteries earlier in her membership. It will take many people to replace all the work she has been doing all these years. We will miss you Lottie, dear friend and member
