Virginia Hartwell Davidson Richards

July18, 1927-July 22, 2020

During her nearly  60 years of living in Ames, Virginia was involved in many community activities. She was a third-generation member of American Association of University Women (AAUW) and in her 50+ years of membership held many local leadership positions, including president in 1970-72. Virginia played an instrumental role in the large AAUW book sale, which was an annual tradition in Ames, and her children have fond memories of helping with that huge endeavor.
