Some Sad News
It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news of our dear member, Mary Bozoian's peaceful passing on September 10, 2020, per her daughter, Paula M. Bozoian. A small funeral was held on the 17th.
Mary was a longtime member of NETGS and The Gesneriad Society, and served in many official capacities, including judging. She attended and contributed to all of our meetings, plant shows and sales, and took great pride in having chaired a national convention held in New England several years back.
Mary's fondness for Sinningias was only surpassed by her love of Petrocosmeas, and photos of many of her stunning plants continue to make the rounds online.
Her attention to detail, and her kindness and welcoming spirit, made our society that much richer, and we will miss her greatly.

We had celebrated Mary's 100th Birthday at our last NETGS face-to-face meeting in February 2020, photos below.
