_[Excerpt from __Arlington Catholic Herald, 2002]_
Eleonore Grimley, a parishioner at St. Lawrence Parish in Alexandria,was unanimously voted president of the LAOH during a three-day meeting at Foxwoods Casino and Resort in Ledyard, Conn.
Grimley has worked with the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians since 1988 when she worked to bring the Hibernians’ convention to Virginia. In 1992, she was elected to her first post on the National Board.
In her inaugural address, Grimley praised the efforts of the Lady Hibernians across the country, and encouraged them in their mission. “BE YOURSELF,” GRIMLEY SAID. “CONTRIBUTE YOUR SPECIAL AND UNIQUE TALENTS, COMBINE THEM WITH THOSE OF YOUR SISTERS AND BROTHERS AND WORK HARMONIOUSLY TOGETHER TO RESTORE ALL THINGS IN CHRIST, THROUGH THE MISSION OF OUR BELOVED HIBERNIAN ORDER.”
Eleonore Grimley was employed by CMAA and was the Director of Office and Property Management. In her position, Mrs. Grimley utilizes her extensive experience in the human resources and benefits fields and her background in the facility/property management area. She has been certified as completing a six-year professional development program for Association Executives (summer curriculum). Before joining CMAA, she worked for Fortune 500 corporations and a major trade association representing the electrical industry.
Her professional memberships include the Society for Human Resource Management and the American Society of Association Executives. Also, she is a National Officer in a LAOH and is heavily involved in local charitable associations.
Please stop and say a prayer for Eleonore and her family. May she rest in peace. Until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
