Leaguers Remember Rhoda

Rhoda Miller

I will always remember Rhoda's thoughtfulness: a koa plate of Christmas cookies, the canisters she gave me when I remodeled my kitchen, the book of cartoons she brought me so I could laugh when I was recovering from cancer surgery...

A strong, determined lady, she took on the chair of the grueling Ad Watch project for 2 weeks even though her illness left her short of breath and barely able to speak...

We knew we had a Committed Super Woman in our midst, but my favorite memories of Rhoda focus on her generosity, laughter, exotic bathroom, great parties, and love of opera...

I recall the 1976 FACTS FOR VOTERS project. 10,000 copies were printed -- with a minor typo in one of the salary figures. We were willing to let it go; the distribution date was at hand. But not Rhoda! For her, nothing was impossible. We hand corrected 10,000 copies and met our distribution schedule!...

I once interviewed Dennis O'Conner with Rhoda. We had a pleasant chat while we waited outside his office. Whatever it was we talked about, Rhoda made it stimulating and enjoyable. The highlight of the afternoon was Rhoda, not O'Connor....

It was Rhoda, when my husband died, who picked me up at the hospital, took me to dinner, stayed with me until I could face an empty house alone. I shall miss her forever...

... and we'll always remember...
