ladygreek has died
 
Hello GreekChat,

I am sorry to tell you that the best of us, ladygreek, has passed away after a brief illness.

Although, like many of us, she had not been an active member of this board for many years, she made dozens, if not hundreds of friends, mentees, and e-daughters and e-sons on this site. She was also plugged into the Greek community through Delphia forums, DeltaNet, Ning, Facebook, and other message boards and social media.

Although ladygreek was not secretive, she was not necessarily forthcoming about the depth of her involvement in her sorority, Delta Sigma Theta. In fact, she was a past national officer, having served as the Midwestern Region Director in the 1990s. She was an active member of several alumnae chapters over the years, and was a charter member of her collegiate chapter.

Many of her Delta sisters consider her a mother-figure and mentor, and are grateful to her legacy daughter for selflessly sharing her mother with legions of sisters.

Even though her first love was DST, she had a lasting impact on women outside of the sorority, and many men who also looked up to her. Social media has seen condolences from Kappas, Alphas, Ques, and many others.

She was sweet, but she was tough. I remember her keen ability to debate with the best of us on this board.

Many might not know that she was literally and figuratively a patron of the arts. Several of us have benefited from her quiet generosity.

I met her in person but once, in 2006, when her Delta travels brought her to Washington. We enjoyed a meal together and I will never forget it.

But there are many, many more who never met ladygreek in person, and to them I say that's okay! Unlike many in her age group, ladygreek understood very early on the power that the internet had to shape Greek culture. Although she was a stickler for the rules, she also knew that the upcoming generations using the internet must be groomed in a different way. She listened to us, she heard us, and she helped us find new ways to engage with our organizations, through her advice and through her example.

I believe that ladygreek knew how much we all loved her. As a humanist, she was not so much into church, but she was into the idea of energy. And in that spirit I say, to all of you who loved her, let's now love one another, and send that healing energy to her family and close friends as they lay her to rest.

I said this morning that she has now discovered the great mysteries of life. Whatever there is on the other side, if anything, I know it has transformed her into the greatest energy of all.

May we be comforted and sustained for having known and loved her.

Sen, thank you for sharing this news with us and for writing a beautiful tribute. Though ladygreek had not posted in some time, us long-time GCers will immediately recognize her username. She was a knowledgeable and ardent supporter of Greek Life and NPHC organizations. She will be missed.

Condolences to ladygreek's family and Delta Sigma Theta.

^^^ This was an absolutely beautiful tribute. It made me tear up and appreciate even more what a lovely person ladygreek was. We ALL should be so fortunate as to have someone honor us so eloquently when we leave this earthly home. May she Rest In Peace.

I interacted with her on here and never realized who she was! I just put two and two together! Sorors have been posting so many beautiful things about her over the past couple of weeks! I remember how kind she was to me when I first announced that I crossed on here and I had no idea she was a past Mighty Midwest Regional Director! RIP Soror! #ΩΩ

Beautiful post, Sen. My condolences to you and all those who she touched. I remember her fondly from my early days as an alumna as an example for many of us.

Sen, thanks for sharing this with us. Such a nice tribute that you posted about ladygreek.

So late to this discussion, but did have something I wanted to also share.

I'm reminded of a post on GC from ladygreek, in response to a happy birthday thread for her, where she expressed her feelings about all who she met on GC. When I first saw that post many years ago it was an indication to me of the impact that GC was having, so I always remembered it. And now it seems appropriate to share here:

I am the one who is truly blessed for having the chance to "meet" all of you on GC and for your acceptance of this seasoned youngun. :D It's been a trying last few months with the loss of my mother, but even then GC helped me through it.

To CT4, the feeling is mutual.

Love you all!

The big picture.. I think that's even more important today as many of us are heading into our first virtual convention in the midst of COVID.

Hoping all my fellow Greeks have a great weekend, value the time we have "together", and keep pushing for a better tomorrow.

RIP ladygreek
