Women's Campaign Chair, 1964-1965
(As told by her daughter-in-law Shirley Pascal)
Bess taught me how to canvass. She took me and my friends with her on her fundraising visits.
She was passionate and dedicated and unbeknownst to those she canvassed, made calls from her deathbed. Her family knew how important this was to her and so did not interfere. She was fiercely committed to her philanthropic work.
