MEMBER SPOTLIGHT



DELORES ANDY
DAISY REAVES

We salute two of our distinguished members……”GRANDE GREEN’S LADIES” whose involvement with the Green’s Ladies Golf Club did much to shape the club that we are today.  They displayed a passion for golf and particularly for the Green’s Ladies. 

DELORES ANDY
    Mrs. Andy served as the City of Philadelphia’s first female Recreation Commissioner and after a 30 year career at Temple University was designated Professor Emerita,
Delores dedicated her life to community service and philanthropy.  As a lifetime Girl Scout, leader, she was a member of the Juliette Low Society. Mrs. Andy reached out to help girls in economically disadvantaged communities who might otherwise have no chance to enjoy scouting. She funded 60 Temple students to attend a conference of the Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society.    Mrs. Andy funded a legacy scholarship at Temple University and at Cheyney University, as well. 
Golf was another of her great passions. She served as our President from 1995 to 1997.  It was through her efforts to reach out to young women desiring to play golf that our membership increased. A beloved member of the Green’s Ladies Golf Club, Delores Andy passed away on June 12, 2015 at the age of 79.

 

Daisy received her bachelor’s degree from Florida A&M University, master's degrees from Temple University and North Carolina Central University in Durham, and a doctorate in education from Penn State University.  She taught at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Mo., and Bennett College in Greensboro, N.C., before going to Gratz to teach physical education.  She became Principal of Simon Gratz High School in Philadelphia. 

It is said that when she walked the halls at Simon Gratz, she exuded a quiet authority. Daisy commanded so much respect from her students that if she saw a boy with a cap on his head, all she had to do was raise a finger to her own head, and the cap was removed.

Members of the Green’s Ladies Golf Club experienced that same aura when as President she presided over a meeting.  In fact, even when no longer President, her very presence at a meeting meant there’d be no nonsense…..just the business of the meeting and then golf, golf, golf!  Daisy, along with other GLGC members, enjoyed traveling and had golfed all over the world.  Another beloved members and Past President of the Green’s Ladies Golf Club, Daisy W. Reaves passed away on July 5, 2015 at the age of 90.
