Donated Chair Honors Memory of Stottler’s Mother

The memory of Sarah Frances Wheeler Waters was recently honored when a new chair was donated in her name to Mendon Public Library. Waters passed away a little over a year ago, and a collection was taken up to support the chair’s purchase. Waters’ daughter, Shari Stottler, was on hand for the presentation.

“My mom was a huge book sale lady,” Stottler said. “She would really appreciate this. I really appreciate this.”

A longtime library supporter, Stottler served as the president of the library board of trustees and a member of the Mendon Town Board. Together with her husband, Gary, Stottler is a benefactor-level donor to the Heart of our Town capital campaign. In addition, she is an honorary lifetime member of The Friends of the Mendon Public Library.

    What a personal and touching tribute in memory of an inspiring woman. I thank you for your kind and thoughtful gesture as well. Her daughter is also very special and dedicated, you are very lucky to have her involved in your Library.
