Most people who know POGO know Beth Daley. For ten years, Beth played a vital role in all of our work. Beth was POGO’s first Director of Development and Director of Communication, helping to build a small non-profit into the institution it is today. She completed her career as the Director of Investigations. Everything that went out the door had her imprint.
Beth died in her sleep after a seven-year battle with breast cancer on Sunday, August 22, 2010. She is survived by her seven-and-a-half year old twin girls Ginger and Traci, of whom she was so proud, her husband Steve Holmer, mother and father Steve and Georganna Daley, sister and brother-in-law Gwen Daley and Brett Best, mother-in-law Terry Holmer, and sisters-in-law Chris Cofield and Kathy Holmer.
Beth’s soul will always be central to POGO. You can find more information about her work and impact here.
