The Loss of an Old Friend

Filed Under (Events, The Knit Out, Visits With Friends) by Sandi on 23-10-2017

Our dear friend Lenore passed away on Thursday, October 5, 2017.

Lenore was a member of Brookside Knits for longer than most of us can remember. She attended regular meetings and attended the Knit Out until a few years ago. “I always enjoyed the Brookside meetings more when Lenore came,” said Laura Piland. “She brought spunk into the room.”

When she retired to Keystone Villa in Douglassville, we would occasionally take our meetings to the Villa, and later to  Manatawny Manor in East Coventry. At other times, a few of her closest friends from knitting visited her at the Manor or took her out to lunch. “Suzanna said we should not forget about her when she moved out of her house,” added Laura, “and I wanted to make sure we didn’t.”

Lenore S. (Sturges) Daly was born in Phoenixville, PA, the daughter of the late Carl and Helen (Boyer) Sturges. She graduated from the Philadelphia Museum School in 1941. Lenore lived her life creatively.  She worked at an illustrator at Pomeroy’s Department Store. She won many awards for her watercolor paintings. In her retirement years, she enjoyed knitting, including her time as a member of Brookside Knits. She is survived by two children and four grandchildren.
