2014 - 15 Memorials Committee
Arranges and provides memorial services for deceased Bar members in open court when the families so desire.
2013-14 Memorials Committee Report
For a number of years, it has been our Bar's tradition to honor the memory of members of the Bar who have died during the year. When the family desires, a memorial ceremony is conducted for a deceased member at a special session of the Superior Court, presided over by one of our resident superior court judges (or occasionally a district court judge), and attended by the deceased member's family and friends, the president of the Bar, a co-chair of the Memorials Committee and other members of the Bar.
In 2012, the MCB Memorials Committee worked with Courthouse Liaisons, Judges and the Bar to continue providing Memorial Services for the members below. The MCB has posted all memorial resolution documents to read. The resolutions are also available at the Mecklenburg County Bar & Foundation Center in bound volumes. Additionally, the family and presenter are now given an audio CD of the memorial service.
During the past year, proceedings have been conducted for the following deceased members of our Bar:
The Committee extends special thanks and appreciation to the judges who presided on these occasions, to those members of the Bar who have prepared and presented the resolutions, to the Bar members and family and friends who have attended these memorial proceedings and to Linda Brooks and Julie Mulhall who have handled the various arrangements necessary to the continuing of this fine tradition of the Bar.
