Remembering Chel Avery

Chel Avery, 1951–2018, passed after a too-long battle with cancer on Tuesday evening, October 2. A member of Goshen Monthly Meeting, Chel had come out of retirement in Oct. 2017 to serve Pendle Hill as its pamphlets coordinator. Chel had served as director of the Quaker Information Center in Philadelphia and as manager of QuakerPress for Friends General Conference. She was a long-time member of Quakers Uniting in Publications.

The memorial service for Chel Avery will be held at the Goshen Friends Meetinghouse, in East Goshen, Pennsylvania, on Saturday, 10 November, at 11:00 am.

He pointed out that QUIP is a contemporary example of what William Burgess reported to Eastern Friends was happening in San Francisco in 1900. Here's the letter: William Burgess Letter
