This a.m. we received word that Mary Lewis, W7QGP, has become a Silent Key. Mary was very involved in the ARRL at the division and section levels. She was an Elmer to many of us. Gary Lewis, WA7BBJ, Mary's son, has provided the following QST

It is with great sorrow that I must announce at this time, the passing of MARY LEWIS, W7QGP on March 12th 2013.

ARRL assistant Section Manager, and as a ARRL Affiliated Club Coordinator for Western Washington.



Past ARRL Director Northwestern Division, Section Communications Manager for Washington and Section Manager for Western Washington.



Mary was also a Life member of the American Radio Relay League and the Quarter Century Wireless Association. She was also a member of Quarter Century Wireless Woman and Young Ladies Radio League.



Retired from Broadcasting and a member of “The Society of Broadcast Engineers”.

Mary was a member of the Western Washington DX Club, North Seattle Amateur Club, Mike & Key Amateur Radio Club and the Mount Baker Amateur Radio Club.



Mary and her husband Harry were part of the Original Founding Members that helped create the Western Washington Amateur Radio Traffic System. A traffic handling system still in use today by many Amateur Radio Operators.



Mary is survived by her husband Harry W7JWJ, her daughter Diana K7ETY, and her son Gary WA7BBJ. As well as, 4 Grandchildren, and 3 Great Grandchildren.



Mary will be missed by the Ham Radio Community, her family and friends. Memorial services for Mary will be announced later when the details are finalized.
