An elegant memorial service for Alicia Polk Withers was held on the 28th May. Anne Dollimore, Sarah Hollo and Eleanor Withers, together with their spouses and families, did a superb celebration of the life of their mother. Here is a short video of the highlights of the event for those that were not able to attend.

As evident, a remarkable number of friends and relatives attended the ceremony at St Joseph’s Church in Clayton Missouri. Following the ceremony a beautiful reception was hosted at the home of Eleanor and Ralph. A complete transcript of Ralph’s moving eulogy has been posted in the Eulogy section of our Library, accessible here.


  1. Bob, you did an outstanding job, as usual. Thanks you for putting this highlight reel together’ I know it couldn’t have been easy with the antiquated equipment.

  2. Dear Bob,


    Thank you so much. I love the music you chose for the wrap, and the lovely photograph of Mom at St. Palais which brought those lovely days to a rich glow in my memory!

    Again, Sarah, Eleanor and I were ever so grateful and consoled by having our wonderful family with us at St. Joseph and for the picnic.

    Much love,
