As I reported last week, Dick Pence passed away on November 22. I received a very nice note from his widow, Ellyn. She has read all the comments appended to the end of that article and wishes to thank everyone for their kind thoughts.
Ellyn also informed me that the memorial service arrangements have been made and all the genealogists who knew Dick and perhaps worked with him are invited. The memorial service will be held Saturday, January 9, from 2 to 4 PM at the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association Conference Center, 4301 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22203.
