In Memory of Caroline Watts
Longtime ORMN member Caroline Watts died November 8 at home. A lawyer by profession, Caroline served as Commonwealth’s Attorney of Madison County for 11 years and then as Clerk of the Court.
An enthusiastic lover of nature, Caroline devoted countless hours to the Old Rag chapter. A member of Class III, she was actively involved in the committee that organizes the annual NABA butterfly count and spent nearly a year hammering out policy and procedures in the working group that developed the Operating Handbook. She also served as our chapter’s first Projects committee chair.
Caroline loved bird and butterfly watching, cultivating native plants and nature photography. One of her nature photographs was awarded first place by Virginia Wildlife magazine.
Caroline had a lively and curious intellect, gave generously of her time and energy to friends, and was much loved by her large family and many friends. She is very much missed.
