Posted by Webmaster on 2006/9/9 8:30:00 (1991 reads)

  In June of 1993, Sandra Boothe and Terry Cummings invited interested Roane County genealogists to a meeting at the Roane County Library. At this meeting the group decided to revive the organization. Sandra was elected president of the newly organized society. She held that office until her death in 1996. With 25 years of teaching experience, Sandra was adept at moving the meeting along at a lively and informative pace. Sandra, also, served as chairperson of the cemetery reading committee and worked on many society projects. She enjoyed sharing resources with others. Sandra was a leader and a driving force in the society and its many energetic projects, which she leaves as legacy to all Roane County genealogists.

Sandra Louise was born March 21, 1945 in Spencer, a daughter of Woodrow B. Boothe and Orva Hill Boothe. She was a graduate of Glenville State College, and was a retired teacher and librarian at Southern High School, Racine, Ohio. She was a member of Hayes Fork Community Church, Linden.

Sandra, age 50, passed away on February 12, 1996, at the Charleston Area Medical Center?s General Division, Charleston, WV. She is buried at the Clover Cemetery, Clover, WV.

Sandra?s family donated her genealogical collection to our library. Their gift is sincerely appreciated and is of great help to our many researchers. Sandra?s collection included numerous research books on various counties, family histories, magazines, and maps.
