In Memorium

Dorothy Chapman Fuqua 1921-2015
It is with tremendous sadness that I note the passing of our great friend and patron, Mrs. Dorothy Chapman Fuqua. Mrs. Fuqua was a friend to everyone at the Garden. The Atlanta Botanical Garden wouldn't be what it is today without the support of Mrs. Fuqua, her husband, J.B., and their family. I remember Dottie as an extraordinarily thoughtful and kind woman, who always made time to chat, whose concern was always for others, and who understood the healing nature of gardens. Her desire to share beauty and tranquility with the people of Atlanta gave life to our dream of a conservatory and orchid center for our community and beyond. She was a jewel. We will miss her.

  1. Very sad news. So sorry for the loss. I never had the pleasure of meeting her, but whenever anyone I knew spoke her name, it was always followed by a very big smile. I'm very grateful for her contributions to the ABG. I wish her family well.
