Merle's life was a beautiful tapestry of experiences and interests. She was a loving wife, mother, grand- and great-grand mother, a devoted educator and advisor, an adventuresome traveler and a faithful leader in her church. She will be dearly missed by those whose lives she touched.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Wolverton Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the following
the seeing eye
The Seeing Eye's mission is to enhance the independence, dignity and self-confidence of people who are blind, through the use of specially trained Seeing Eye® dogs. In pursuit of this mission, The Seeing Eye breeds and raises puppies to become Seeing Eye dogs, trains Seeing Eye dogs to guide blind people, instructs blind people in the proper use, handling, and care of the dogs and conducts and supports research on canine health and development.
doctors without borders
Amid the Parisian upheavals of May 1968, a group of young doctors decided to go and help victims of wars and major disasters. This new brand of humanitarianism would reinvent the concept of emergency aid. They were to become Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), known internationally in English as Doctors Without Borders. MSF was created on the belief that all people have the right to medical care regardless of gender, race, religion, creed, or political affiliation, and that the needs of these people outweigh respect for national boundaries.
