At a recent meeting of the Reelfoot Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution, a memorial service was held for the late Virgina Dahnke.
Mrs. Dahnke had been an active member of the Reelfoot Chapter since 1974. She served as chapter regent from 1986-89 and again from 1995-98.
During her tenure, she led the chapter in several successful projects in keeping with the mission of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.
Her Revolutionary Patriot was Peter Warterfield from Virginia.
Immediately following the chapter meeting and a luncheon, the chapter, family members and special guests adjourned to East View Cemetery in Union City to mark her grave with the bronze DAR marker.
