Barbara Diehl

Oxford Friends Meeting mourns the passage of our beloved Friend, Barbara Diehl, who was a joint member with Clear Creek Meeting.  A birthright Quaker, Barbara was a founding member of our meeting. Every year, she organized the Meeting to contribute school kits and hygiene kits for people in need, both in the United States and abroad, via Church Women United. She also annually helped the meeting participate in the Community Empty Bowls Luncheon. Every month, she would remind us of upcoming birthdays and anniversaries in the Meeting.  Pictured is Sandra Ward-Angell, showing that Barbara posthumously received an Oxford Citizen of the Years award for her many and wide-ranging community contributions, as a forcefully compassionate witness to the world of human needs around us.
