The OCFW joins Oregon citizens, educators, and leaders for women’s rights in mourning the passing of Roslyn Farrington.   Her longstanding service as the Executive Director of the OCFW throughout the 1990’s and her tireless efforts in founding the Friends of the OCFW has left a legacy of public policy aimed at improving the lives of all women in Oregon.   She was at the epicenter of the OCFW's long tradition of honoring a host of women leaders at its Annual Women of Achievement Awards and made possible an Americorps Grant that allowed the OCFW to provide workshops statewide on financial management for women and a series of forums on menopause.  Roslyn Farrington’s determination and dedication to improving the lives of women have inspired all who knew her and lives on in the organizations she has led.   Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this time.
