Florence M. Meagher-Lehman MAT ’65

Florence M. Meagher-Lehman MAT ’65, March 24, 2009, in Green Valley, Arizona. Florence grew up in Seattle and attended the University of Washington, where she earned a bachelor's degree in economics in 1937. That same year, she gave birth to the first of her two daughters with husband George S. Meagher. She was married to George until his death in 1995, and they lived in Portland, Charbonneau, and Sun River, Oregon. Florence worked full time as a teacher and counselor at Benson Polytechnic High in Portland, and entered the master's in teaching program at Reed at age 55. She found the coursework enriching and stimulating, and credited it with improving the quality of her work as an educator and the experience and outlook of her students' lives. In 1997, at the age of 83, she married Alan D. Lehman and moved to Arizona. Alan died in 2005.
