In unrelated health news, Margaret Lois Church passed away at her home in New Paltz, NY on Aug. 25th following a nine-year battle with cancer. (Source: The Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center). She was born in Brookline, MA on June 29, 1932 and at age 11 took riding lessons at a stable in Etna, NY. After graduating from Ithaca High and with no money for college, she worked as a cook and in 1955 took a position in food services at SUNY New Paltz where she stayed until 1969.
“Maggie met life’s challenges head on with hard work, few compliments, and a mischevious sense of humor,” says a friend. “Maggie’s spirit was tied to nature.”
LC Magazine states that “Those Maggie leaves behind are too numerous to list.”
You can make a donation in her name to The Animal Welfare Adoption Network, Box 53, West Hurley, NY 12491 and The Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center, Box 3994, Kingston, NY 12402.

In unrelated event news, PetSmart Charities recently rescued dogs badly neglected from a puppy mill in Nebraska. The total amount of canines saved was 173.
“Perhaps for the first time ever they had room to move, fresh water, nutritious food, and a warm, dry blanket to lay upon…but more importantly, all were just days or weeks away from finding forever homes and leaving behind the horrors of the puppy mill,” said Susana Della Maddalena, executive director of PetSmart Charities in a press release.
You can donate to the organization online at petsmartcharities.org or by sending a check or money order to PetSmart Charities, Inc., 19601 N. 27th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85027.
