Lois Jenkins

Guild Role

 

 

- Dec. 15, 1920 – Apr. 29, 2009
A brief memory of Lois from her dear friend MJ Toole:

Lois taught decoupage in her home for many years. She joined the NGD very early in its inception. She brought all of her skills to the Guild, especially her beautiful smooth finishes. She taught us a lot about our Art. She told me that she would go into stores and look at beautiful things and then go home and figure out how to do them using decoupage. She was so very creative. Her father was an artist and she inherited many of her talents from him. And, she was so very willing to share with others all that she had learned about our Art. She taught at almost every Convention the NGD had. She and I chaired one in Columbus, Ohio where many découpeurs from around the world assembled.

Tuell Margo

Guild Role

 

Margo Tuell…dear Margo…she was a very special person. She was a fine, quiet woman, very laid-back, who was my treasured friend. She was a wife and mother to two daughters. Her husband was a pharmacist and owned a drugstore in Flagstone, Arizona.

I met Margo at the National Guild of Découpeurs Convention in Hilton Head, South Caroline in (date I’ll have to look up), and we have been friends ever since. When the Convention was here in Wooster, Ohio, Margo was a guest in my home.
Margo was a faithful Guild member. She held office quite a few times….she was President twice and executed her office with good judgment and integrity.
Margo’s artwork in decoupage was very beautiful. She attempted and completed many projects, including large pieces of furniture. Her coloring was so very beautiful and the designs were lovely.
Margo was a quiet person with a low voice and a laugh that had melody to it.
She was loved by many, especially me. Goodbye, dear friend. I miss you.
