Remembering Heather Huntington

Heather Huntington

Mendon Public Library lost an enthusiastic supporter on Nov. 10, with the passing of Library Board of Trustees member Heather Huntington. My best memories of Heather include her broad laugh, her jangling bracelets and the amazing number of lovely silent auction items she coordinated for our fundraiser at the Rabbit Room a few years back. She is still the top commenter of all time on this blog.

What good memories do you have of Heather? Please add them in the comments.

Memorials may be sent to Serenity House, 1278 Brace Road, Victor , N.Y. 14564. Read more about Heather in this article.

    I remember the feeling that Heather was kind and trustworthy…. that she would put a positive full force behind whatever she said that she would do. I remember how proud she was of her son, Jackson and how lovingly she talked about him, and Michael too. I liked her bright, stream-of-consciousness banter. And I don’t think anyone will ever outdo her on the silent auction fund-raiser.

    There are so many things! One of my fondest is that Heather sent me an e-mail before she moved to the area. I was president of the library board and she had seen on the library website that there was a board vacancy and she wanted to apply. That has to have been the first time in history that someone has wanted to be on the Mendon Public Library Board before even moving to town! As soon as she was settled, we met and she was very soon on the library board. She was filled with enthusiasm and many ideas. As Lisa mentioned, she very quickly got involved in fund raising with the silent auction donations. It was an amazing accomplishment!

    She often spoiled us board members by bringing chocolates when she worked at the Lindt store. Whenever I enjoy a Lindt chocolate, I think of Heather. I miss her wry sense of humor and her ability to say what many of us were thinking, but were afraid to say.
