About the fund
Established by the family and friends of Shirley Lutz Quigg to support her favorite charities.
From the Donor:
Shirley, or Ditty as her friends knew her, was born in Carbondale in 1930 and grew up in Waverly. She was an avid tennis player and won the Community House Tennis Tournament a number of times. She played on the girls’ basketball team and edited the school newspaper at the Waverly High School. She was also a Girl Scout camper and counselor at Camp Archbald. Later in life, she would fondly support the camp’s project of constructing a new dock and swimming area. She attended Keystone Junior College and would eventually work for Charm Magazine in New York City.
In addition to being a homemaker and mother, Shirley was involved with various civic and charitable organizations throughout her life, such as the Scranton Philharmonic, Visiting Nurses Association, the United Way of Lackawanna County, and she taught Sunday school at the Church of Epiphany in Glenburn. She was also a member of the Church of the Redeemer in Sayre for a time as well as St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Montrose and the Garden Club of Montrose, and she volunteered at the annual Blueberry Festival fundraising event for the Susquehanna County Free Library and Historical Society. Shirley also quietly but enthusiastically supported the Women Helping Women Fund at the Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains. Her simple pleasures included “golfing with the girls” at the Montrose Country Club and Friday night dinners with the “gang from the church.” Her memorial endowment is intended to continue her legacy of charitable support for causes that were dear to her heart.
