On Monday, May 17th, we honored Nancy Seyfried. former NGS member and treasurer, who passed away in March of 2020. Nancy was remembered for her meticulous bookkeeping, quiet manner, wry sense of humor and love of gardening. Nancy loved daffodils so a plaque designed by NGS member and artist, Nancy Wieting, was placed in the Rose of Sharon Garden at Warren Park where daffodils were planted in her memory last year.
In addition to many NGS members in attendance, we were quite pleased to welcome Nancy's brother Bob and her sister-in-law, Barbara, and 2 of her co-workers from the Chicago Botanic Garden library to the service. Nancy volunteered for many years at the garden's library.
is about enjoying the smell of things growing in the soil, getting dirty without feeling guilty and generally taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.

Mary Oellrich retired as NGS Treasurer and Sheila Mayol retired as the Rose of Sharon Garden manager. We would like to thank both of them for their service. It is greatly appreciated.
Sigrid Schmidt has assumed the role of Treasurer and Board member and Judy Ishii has taken over the management of the Rose of Sharon Garden in Warren Park. We thank them and wish them the best.
The annual cleanup of the Triangle Garden in Indian Boundary Park was done on May 14th with thanks to a group of NGS volunteers, Natalie Peteson, Carol Veome, Mary Oellrich and Ginny Davis. We would also like to thank Judy Ishii who did some pruning of overgrown shrubs last fall.
The garden needs some new plantings (coming soon) but is looking pretty good.
