Honoring JoEllen Perkins

by | Aug 3, 2020 | Eagala News

It is with sadness we share the passing of Eagala Certified member, JoEllen Perkins, on July 20th of ovarian cancer.

JoEllen served on Eagala’s Board of Directors from Oct. 2012 to March 2019, and as Chair of the Board from March 2018 to March 2019. It was during her time on the board she was first diagnosed, and valiantly fought the disease the last five years.

We are so appreciative of the years of volunteer service and leadership in support of Eagala and in practice of this model she was so passionate about. Our love goes to her family for this loss.  This photo of JoEllen with her rescued thoroughbred, Mel, captures her essence and passion,  and the love in her heart she shared with so many of us. You will be missed JoEllen.
