A Loss In The Memory Tree Family
Virginia Bartholomew: how far that candle threw her beams.
Virginia Bartholomew (Ginny) had been a teacher at The Memory Tree since 2011, sharing her love of Shakespeare and her talents as an actor and singer with our program. She gave us many gifts. She brought the words of Shakespeare to life, inspiring us all to keep learning, sharing her enthusiasm and love of the theater with us. The group members loved her classes, feeling energized and focused from the acting techniques she taught them and used in their everyday lives. Ginny had a special way of knowing how best to connect with people, no matter what there obstacles might be. Her joy for teaching radiated through to her students. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity, however short, to have her part of The Memory Tree. Ginny passes away last week after a brief but intense fight with cancer.
