Once again, we have sad news to share. Julie Esterlin’s husband died from complications after an accident last week. Julie is another longtime member of the Dayton Knitting Guild. She also has a business (Julie’s Knit-Knacks) for selling and teaching how to use knitting machines. Our hearts go out to her in this difficult time. The obituary can be referenced from this link:
We’re sorry to learn that one of our longtime Dayton Knitting Guild members Lenore Klin has recently died. Lenore had not been attending meetings recently but was an early member of the guild and had been a member for most of 30 plus years the guild has been in existence. She was an avid knitter and a kind friend to our members who knew her. Here is a link to her obituary from the Dayton Daily News if you’d like to read more about Lenore’s life. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/dayton/obituary.aspx?n=lenore-klin&pid=190319901&fhid=16466
