In Memoriam

Springfield School Volunteers mourns the loss of our longtime volunteer and friend Mrs. Alberta “Dolly” Howard, who recently passed away at the age 109! Mrs. Howard began volunteering with SSV in the 1980s when she served as a member of our Advisory Council. However, reading with kids was what she loved most, and she did that regularly well into her 90s. Most of her volunteer work was done at DeBerry School, where her beloved son Paris worked for many years. Mrs. Howard’s passion for reading and dedication to their students made such an impression on the staff at DeBerry that they created “Dolly’s Reading Corner” in her honor. SSV honored Dolly at our 50th Anniversary Gala in 2019 for her many years of service. Dolly’s legacy will live on through all those she has already touched and through future generations of readers.
