After a difficult struggle with ovarian cancer, Dr. Beth Farokhi passed away on Friday, June 22, 2018.
On behalf of the Farokhi Family I would like to thank our members who were able to attend the Memorial Service For Beth on Saturday, July 7th, at Ebenezer Baptist Church.
It was an outstanding tribute to Beth and to the great and good things she has done in her lifetime … and we are very grateful to Alta Birdsong for her eloquent AAUW tribute to Beth.
Thank you to our members for the many ways you have expressed your condolences and remembrances of Beth.
Beth was passionate about women’s rights and equity. She wanted to see the ERA ratified in Georgia this coming year.
Pick up her baton, join the cause, and make it happen!! (More to come on that.)
