September 30, 2008
Marcia Connell Strickland, 90, a lifelong civic and community volunteer and resident of Southern Pines and Pinehurst for 38 years, died September 30, 2008, at Moore Regional Hospital after a brief illness.
Mrs. Strickland was born August 18, 1918 in Detroit, MI and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Michigan, Class of 1939, of which class she would become president. She was selected Queen of the Big Ten in 1939 and represented the Elgin Watch Company at the 1939 World
What a shame Mrs.Strickland’s obituary does not mention her family nor her service as international President of Delta Gamma Fraternity. I was discussing her today with a sorority sister. We fondly remember how gracious she was and how we admired her ward
