Addie Slaughter Greene – Rest in Peace – Our Friend and Colleague
Addie Slaughter Greene, the only child of Emily Huntington Hamilton Greene and John Slaughter Greene, was born in Santa Barbara, California. She was named after her grandmother, Addie Slaughter, the daughter of Arizona cattleman and Tombstone Sheriff John Slaughter.
Her bridge partners and her competitors will miss her quiet, smiling face at the Tuesday duplicate bridge tournament where she was a formidable presence.
Addie was a quiet, unassuming soul. When she would sit next to me at city council meetings, I watched her taking notes for an article she was writing for the Chronicle, hoping she could read her scribbles. Obviously, she could. She was an avid reporter, writer and friend.
She was really proud of her research and writing of the three part article on the comparison of two cities, Ashland and Klamath Falls – “A Tale of Two Cities”, which remains relevant today. Addie’s wisdom and insight lives on in her writings.
We miss you, Addie! A memorial service will be held from noon to 2 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 19 in the Gresham Room of the Ashland Public Library.
We will post her three part article “A Tale of Two Cities”.
