▪ In Memory of GGRW Member:
Letter from John
Jan. 17, 2014. What a wonderful tribute to Joan Zellner this morning at Hamilton Mill Memorial Gardens in Buford. Many thanks for the moving remarks by Melvin Everson, BJ Van Gundy, Buzz Brockway, Sue Everhart and Rob Woodall at her service today. A very moving letter from former Congressman John Linder was read. So nice to see so many Republican friends at this final farewell to a great and hard-working lady! It was wonderful to see former district and Gwinnett county GOP Chairs as pall bearers. Greater Gwinnett Republican Women will miss her VERY much! In fact, many Republicans across the county and state will all miss her.
