The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association, as all
groups in service to their communities, could not prosper without
the support of people in the community itself.
Joyce Ringhel was just such a person. Joyce passed three months
ago. She was a joyous and kind woman who also baked phenomenal
cookies. Joyce and her husband Charles had been tremendous
supporters of our work and we are saddened for her
Patricia Nye is another dear friend and supporter who passed not
long ago and who, in her fiery nature and humorous way never
stopped encouraging us to continue our efforts on behalf of
conservation and community building.
This has been a series of difficult months for all of us in Vermont
and so for the people of Cavendish, and it is with regret that we
come so late to this expression of condolence to both Charles
Ringhel and Richard, Will and Amber Nye. We know, that for
all of us who knew Joyce and Pat and their bright giving spirits,
they will live on in our memories and continue to bring us courage
to dream and do what needs to be done.
Robin Timko, President CCCA
