By obituary  Posted by Rob Kall (about the submitter)       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments
Mescal Roe of Augusta, GA died of advanced ovarian cancer November 3, 2005 at St. Joseph's Hospital. She was born October 9, 1920 in Camp Dix, KY to George Herbert and Nellie Mae Roe. She is survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Amanda Roe Lang and Thomas J. Lang of Augusta, GA and a brother, Malcolm Roe of Vanceburg, KY.

Mescal retired in March 1983 after 37 years of employment with the Air Force Civil Service having achieved the rank of GS11. Since that period she has been a devoted member of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) Augusta Chapter 101.

After retirement, Mescal relocated to Augusta, GA where she became a very active member in numerous community volunteer services. Included among these were AARP Chapter 266, the League of Women Voters, the Safe Communities Coalition, the Senior Citizens Council, the Richmond County Board of Elections and the Richmond County Democratic Party.

In October 1984, Mescal became one of the first volunteers with Shepeard Community Blood Center. In her 21 years of volunteer service, she logged 2,578 hours to their blood drive efforts, receiving numerous awards for her service dedication.

Please join Mescal's friends and family on Sunday, November 20, 2005 from 2:00 - 4:00 PM at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Augusta, located at 3501 Walton Way Extension, Augusta, GA for a 'celebration of the life' of Mescal. Feel free to bring pictures, stories, and anecdotes of how Mescal touched your life to share.

The family requests, in lieu of flowers, to please make memorial contributions to Shepeard Community Blood Center (SCBC) at 1533 Wrightsboro Road, Augusta, GA 30904 (707-737-4551), or a blood donation in Mescal's honor at SCBC. With her passing, SCBC has lost a valued volunteer. In Mescal's honor, please consider volunteering at SCBC to continue her legacy.
