In Memorium – Mary Lewis

Long time SBE member Mary Lewis passed away on March 12.  Mary was a Lifetime member of Seattle SBE Chapter 16 and was remembered as attending the chapter’s monthly meetings on a regular basis with her husband Harry until illness intervened.

Mary and Harry both worked at several Seattle area stations including the KJR-AM transmitter site in the years it was located on Harbor Island near downtown Seattle.  Mary was also involved as an Advisory Board member with KNHC-FM at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle.

Mary was perhaps best known for her tireless service to the amateur radio community.  Her call was W7QGP, and she was very active with the ARRL as a Life Member.  She served several years as ARRL Northwestern Division Director.  She was also a member of the Quarter Century Wireless Association and the Young Ladies Radio League.

Mary is survived by her husband Harry, son Gary and Daughter Diana, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Comments are welcome below and will be shared with the family.
