General Order #15
9 February 2012
The family of Allied Orders past National leaders has become smaller. I have the sad duty of reporting the recent deaths of Sisters Nancy Conaway, Past National President of the Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic (LGAR) and Patricia Mullenix, Past National President of the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War 1861-1865 (DUVCW).
Sister Conaway was a member of the LGAR for over 57 years in Ohio as part of the Mother McKinley Circle #4 and served as National President of the LGAR during the 1979-1980 administrative year. She presided over the LGAR National Encampment in Richmond, VA in August 1980. Sister Conaway passed away on 29 January at the age of 81.
Sister Mullenix served as National President of the DUVCW during the 2006-2007 administrative year and presided over the DUVCW National Convention in St. Louis, MO in August 2007. She was a long time member of Charlotte Harrison Boone Tent #20 in Kahoka, MO. Sister Mullenix passed away on 06 February at the age of 62.
I am requesting that all membership badges, Camp and Department charters and the National website be draped in black until 09 March 2012 in remembrance of Sisters Conaway and Mullenix and in honor of their long term dedication to preserving the memory of the Grand Army of the Republic and our ancestors who fought to save the Union.
Ordered this 9th Day of February, 2012.
