MARY E. FLAGEL             

Our beloved Lifetime Member, Mary E. Flagel, is pictured here on May 5, 2006, receiving an award for 25 years of service as Treasurer of The Shadow Mountain Gem and Mineral Society.  Mary left this world on December 22, 2014, after a long illness. Those of us who were blessed to know Mary benefited from her vast knowledge of gems and minerals. She taught us many things, and shared her knowledge with us generously. Her displays in the Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival always won the top prizes. 

When Mary became ill, part of her wonderful collection became available to our Society, and we are still reaping the rewards from all those beautiful items.

Thank you, Mary, for being part of The Shadow Mountain Gem and Mineral Society, and part of our lives.
