Tribute to Harold Schrei from MARLS

The Mid America Regional Lily Society extends our deepest sympathy to the family of Harold (Hal) Schrei. Hal passed away on August 11th, 2010 at the age of 94 years old. Hal leaves his wife Dorothy and two sons Bob and Dick.

Hal and his wife Dorothy were very valuable members of the Mid America Regional Lily Society. Some of Hal’s supportive work is listed below;

Charter member of MARLS,
First Treasurer of MARLS,
Past president of MARLS,
MARLS Board Member,
NALS Board Member,
Official photographer for MARLS,
Lily Show Chairman,
NALS Accredited Judge

Hal entered many prize lilies in our shows, and was a consistent winner. He has opened their garden for tours and presented slide shows to many garden clubs and other interested groups. He made all aware of the ease of growing lilies and incorporating them into the garden. Hal’s wife Dorothy was the MARLS treasurer for eight years and handled the extra duties involved with the MARLS sponsored NALS shows in St Louis.

MARLS members will remember Hal as a very reliable MARLS supporter who was very dependable, very organized and very much a leader.
