Letter: Remembering the stalwart ladies

Published on November 8, 2017 9:46AM

Great article about the Soroptimist Thrift Store in the Nov. 1 edition, but you neglected to mention the elderly ladies who ran the store when I first arrived: Alice Lessman, Marjorie Martin and Mable Osborn.

According to The History of Wallowa County, the name “thrift store” was suggested by Rowena Adey.

When these ladies were not working at their regular jobs, they were found at the thrift shop. These are names that are disappearing. I just thought they needed to be mentioned.
