We regret to report that Windham Foundation Trustee Charlie Townsend died at home on August 27, 2010 after a long illness. He was elected as a
Windham Foundation trustee in 1989 and served until his retirement in 2003. He and his wife Daphne would continue to visit Grafton on a regular basis after his retirement.

The President, Trustees, current and former employees of the Windham Foundation and its subsidiaries are saddened by the September 30, 2009 death of our emeritus colleague, Ed Toohey, after his long and courageous battle with illness. A Board member for over 27 years, he served as Chair of the Finance Committee and as Foundation Treasurer. His financial  expertise and business acumen provided great confidence and clarity and helped create the platform for many years of  growth and philanthropy.  He is remembered fondly for his sharp wit and wonderful sense of style. He is sorely missed and we extend our sincere condolences to his wife Phyllis, daughter Karen and the entire family.
