  • Condolences to the Hagner Family

    It is with profound sadness that we announce that longtime ARA member and friend Elizabeth Hagner passed away peacefully on October 13 at Kirkwood Corners in Lee.   She was one week shy of her 87th birthday.  Liz was feisty, funny, and fiercely independent.  She loved chocolate, the New York Times, a good joke, and her family:  her husband of 64 years, our dear friend Sam, her 3 children: Tom Hagner, Dave Hagner, and Martha Leathe; their spouses, and 9 grandchildren.  Liz and Sam have been active members of the ARA since 1998.

    A private memorial is planned.  Her complete  obituary can be viewed here.

    Donations in Liz's name can be made to the ARA Memorial Fund.
