A Farewell to Jim Cain
by Cheryl Daniels
Longtime LWVDC member Jim Cain died unexpectedly on January 30, 2017, in Chattanooga, TN, after a special trip to Florida to ride one of America’s last trains powered by a classic wood-fired locomotive steam engine. He was with his wife of 39 years, and League member, Miriam Simmons.
League members are invited to a memorial service at Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa Street, in Madison, on Sunday, March 19, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. with refreshments to follow at Bunky’s Catering, 2425 Atwood Avenue.
Jim’s LWVDC work included a stint on the board as finance chair and as a moderator for Know Your Candidates. We will miss Jim very much, but need to also thank him in our hearts for a generous bequest he left to LWVDC. Donations in his memory to LWVDC will be added to his bequest, to continue the voter service work that Jim believed was so important to our democracy.
