Dear John,
As promised, we have additional details about the memorial service for Mary Head, Treasurer of Triangle Neighbors and the person who arranged for our purchase of Space Park.  There will be a memorial service in her honor at Space Park on Sunday, September 13th at 2PM.  We've included her obituary below.
As a reminder, our next Triangle meeting is Wednesday (Sep 9th) at Roscoe's at 7PM.  We will be discussing the proposed expansion of the Wrigleyville Hotel on Clark as well as planning the upcoming Halloween parade.
As a safety remember:
� There is safety in numbers.
� Ignoring your instincts is not worth the risk.
� Don't be afraid or too shy to ask someone to walk you to your car or home.
� Adopt a frame of mind that allows you to recognize and avoid potential threats on the street.
Born in Los Angeles, California as Mary McWherter, to Mary Price (deceased) and Robert J. McWherter (deceased).  Later, adopted, along with her brother Robert (Jr, Deceased), by Nonnie (deceased) and Bebop (deceased), where they gained two sisters: Denise and Shar.  Attended Mary Mount High School and later Seattle University.   She then moved to Chicago and married (later divorced; no children) George "Ted" Head; police officer (deceased).   She found herself working at First Chicago (later Bank One); a veritable archetype for women in that particular arena, for that era, excelling within her profession, and amassing too many friendships to count in the process.  Retired early, and at the top. Ample community leader, rescuer and mender of both animals and people.  Exponent and advocate of gay rights.  Active member of Triangle Neighbors/LVCC and a staple of Direct Aid Chicago and Buck's Saloon.  Lived in the same house for over 30 years.  Upon her death she was single mother to Gary Head (partner Elizabeth Capua) and Eric Zich.  Aunt of Gentry McWherter and many more.  An immensely beloved friend of an incalculable spread.  And someone no one will ever, ever forget.   She is survived by those that she helped survive, and a toothless cat.  She is the world's greatest Noodle to Gary's son Lynx.  A memorial service will be held for her on Sunday, September 13th at 2 p.m. at the park located at 815 W. Roscoe, Chicago.  All donations in her name should be sent to
