In Memory Of

When one of our volunteers leaves this life, it is a saddening event for all of us.  Here are some of the more recent volunteers we hold in our memories.

Elaine Moline

Elaine Moline was a volunteer with the library and with the Friends of the Library for many years.  She was tireless and loved working our book sales where she handled the sales to our larger volume customers.  Elaine also worked in the book room where she managed the Cooking genre section.  She also served on the FOL Board of Directors in the 1990's.

Eleanor Deines

Eleanor Deines was probably our most written about volunteer.  At 103 years old and still active, she was featured several times in news articles in the local paper and news magazines. Several years ago, she was interviewed for an article in the Bainbridge Island Library News.  Eleanor was always positive and cheerful.  She enjoyed cashiering at the Friends of the Library book sales right up until the end of her life.  She would take a stack of books and add mentally the running total.  She was a role model for the Friends.

Bill Iulo

Bill Iulo worked for many years with the Friends of the Library. He is most remembered for his work as Treasurer for many years and his hand-written Treasurer's notes are part of our archive of records.  When he was no longer on the FOL Board of Directors, Bill continued to work collecting the cash payments from the "honor boxes" in the library lobby and downstairs FOL book stand.  He counted all those pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters and rolled them up for deposit in the bank along with a mass of one-dollar bills.  His totals were always spot on.

Rose Euchner

Rosalie Euchner, who grew up on Bainbridge Island, was an almost permanent fixture in the FOL book room.  She was a voracious reader and would chat and share her book recommendations with one and all.  Rose had a wonderful sense of humor and seemed to know about everything on Bainbridge.  Rose managed the fiction genre and also stocked the upstairs lobby shelves where FOL sold books during library hours.  There is still a book cart in daily use in the FOL book room that is named "Rose's Cart".
