Corrected: Public memorial planned Sunday for childhood education advocate Margie Reeves

OlympianDecember 5, 2013 

A public memorial service is scheduled Sunday, Dec. 8, for Margie Reeves, the longtime Thurston County advocate for early childhood education who died on Oct. 15. Reeves will be remembered in a 2 p.m. event at the Worthington Center at Saint Martin’s University – a change of venue from earlier plans.

Reeves was founder of the Child Care Action Council, a founding member of the Thurston Early Childhood Coalition and was the second Head Start director in Thurston, Mason and Lewis counties.

She was a founding member of numerous other groups – including the Children’s Alliance – and served on the Governor’s Task Force on Child Care and other boards, according to an obituary published in The Olympian. 

Her husband, Bruce Reeves, was a longtime leader of the Washington state Senior Lobby.

UPDATE: Corrects that the day of the service is Sunday.
