In Memory of Ralston Bewley

 

A memorial table has been set up in memory and honor of the late Ralston Bewley.

A memorial table has been set up in memory and honor of the late Ralston Bewley who served Allen County Farm Bureau board of directors for 19 years. Thanks to the generosity of his family, his legacy will continue to serve. Mr. Bewley, a World War II veteran, passed away on January 17, 2014; his wife, Eunice, passed away March 28, 2015. During the Allen County Farm Bureau Legislative Appreciation dinner held in late June, their daughter, Diane Bewley Fisher, donated the remaining $8,325.11 of her late mother's estate to be used for scholarships. Mrs. Fisher also donated several photos and other memorabilia to the local Farm Bureau office that you see pictured here.
