I was checking my email this morning when I saw a link to this obituary in the Cherokee Tribune for Mrs. Elizabeth Davis Johnston, 94, who received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Agnes Scott College in 1940.

“Elizabeth was a prominent leader in civic, cultural, church and educational activities,” her obituary says. “She served as President of the Young Matrons Circle for Tallulah Falls School. She was instrumental in founding the Woodstock Public Library and served as Chairman of its Board of Trustees. She served on Cherokee County library boards from 1964 until 1991.”

And it just goes on and on like that. She dedicated her whole life to public service of one sort or another. It’s a nice way to be remembered, I think.

The whole obit is worth a read. To do so, click here.
