Soiree In Memorium: 18 Legacies We Won’t Forget

Gone but not forgotten. Sounds trite but true. I decided to put all of the Soirée magazines in order from 2002 to 2012, look at every page and write down the names of Little Rock philanthropists who are no longer with us. You probably realize our huge losses by now.

Out of 148 notable people now deceased, we chose 18 to be profiled. For those of you who knew these giants and those who didn’t know them, here they are. I hope you enjoy remembering them. Some had photographic portraits in Soirée, and others were photographed in action at nonprofit events. I had the privilege of meeting them all—what legacies they left.
