Goodbye to WILPF’er Mary Alys
As some of you already know, our WILPF sister and friend, Mary Alys has died.
Mary was kind, she was strong, principled, and passionate. She was admired for her intelligence and thoughtfulness, her patience and decency and she was loved for all of these, for who she was and how she lived. She embodied everything that WILPF aspires to be.
She was greatly loved and loved greatly and we will all miss her.
Mary Alys was buried at the Natural Burial Ground, Keyham Lane East, near Scraptoft, Leicestershire, LE7 9TA on Friday 31st May 2013.
Contributions – instead of flowers – were shared between three of Mary’s preferred organisations/projects:
- The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom
- The Panama School, La Concha, Nicaragua
- The Mary Alys Trust her new charitable trust for the education of boys and girls and young people in peace and reconciliation, justice and equality bringing into account the principles of feminism.
