How it all began...
In 1953, Mary Cole became the first Ladies Auxiliary president for the UPC International. Under her leadership in 1956 the Mothers Memorial fund-raising drive was created. That first offering totaled $4,930.63.
In 1960, Ila Ashcraft followed her as president and continued until her death in 1964. Vera Kinzie served as president until 1994. Gwyn Oakes was appointed president in 1994, and is the current President.
Mothers Memorial continues to be a tremendous blessing to the thousands of recipients who are in great need of love, joy, compassion, and truth.
