Please join us this summer to celebrate the lives of Mary Ellen Mills and Tracey Fishell. Wear a fun hat and bring a fond memory to share…and don’t forget to bring a Bichon if you have one!

Celebrating Mary Ellen Mills

Mary Ellen passed away on Saturday, February 25, 2023, the day of our Winter Specialty. Remembering back in time, we truly enjoyed the shows at Bates Nut Farm in June, where Mary Ellen was often seen riding on a golf cart with her husband Gene and sporting a beautiful summer hat. She was also spotted sitting behind the Show Chair table answering questions, selling catalogs and greeting the exhibitors with her beaming and beautiful smile.

Remembering Tracey Fishell

It is with fond memories and a sad heart we convey the passing of another one of our club members. Tracey Fishell passed away peacefully, in his sleep at home with his wife Sandy by his side. Tracey had been boldly battling his lung illness for the last 10 years. Tracey had a passion for excitement (like racing cars) and a quick wit. An amazing storyteller, Tracey was well versed on just about any topic you’d care to discuss. He was just a fun and facinating guy. His quick wit and beaming smile will be sorely missed.
