Katharine Nicely Emsden ’61

Katharine, an educator, adventurer, and advocate for many, died Nov. 25, 2018.

Writes daughter Pamela: “Though I knew she was always busy, I did not know she read at the poetry reading each month, that she had poster-making nights at her house for fracking protests, that she would host a Quaker meeting and a traveling Buddhist and Latter-day Saints at her house all within two days, that she helped dig a trail system, that she volunteered each week to take out the trash for the local gallery, that she wrote articles for the paper, that she tutored some of the most challenging students, and on and on—each one of equal importance to her.”
