Tribute to "Miss Dolly"
Posted on Jan 22nd, 2021
Members Pay Tribute to a Founder of ROW
A group of ROW members gathered at a median in South Fifth Avenue on Sunday, January 17, 2021, to dedicate an engraved stone in memory of Dolly Pearson, a founder of ROW. "Miss Dolly," as she was affectionately called, lived at the corner of Nun and Fifth Avenue for most of her life. She was active in ROW and continued to attend meetings in her golden years. Dolly loved to garden and ROW awards the "Dolly Pearson Garden Award" to outstanding local gardeners.
