messages from current board members
I met Kris about seven years ago when I joined the Monrovia Historical Museum staff. Since that time I have had many wonderful meetings and encounters with Kris in that regard. She always laughed at my jokes!
There was a day when a city worker was concerned because he had spotted what appeared to him to be dog "leavings" on the roof. We where accused of bringing our dogs to work and putting them on the roof during our stay. of course we wouldn't do that, as a matter of fact, none of us have dogs. But between Kris and I, we milked that joke for weeks!
Kris was always a big help when the Museum had events, and was never too busy to get her hands dirty. Of course she knew everyone! I don't know how many hundreds of people she introduced me to over the years. She was our "in" to the schools and School District. I will miss taking the Museum's donated cash and checks to her at the District. Kris always took the time to talk with me about the future of the Museum or just about topics of the day. I know she had much work to do, but she was never short or in a hurry. And I stole many great ideas from her for the Museum as well.
Kris was the one of the original members that built the Museum and the foundation upon which we continued the work. Kris is a great loss to the museum, to the community, and I miss miss my friend and colleague.
