Deep Springs mourns the loss of Eunice McIntosh Whitney, June 22, 1919 – August 17, 2012, who passed away suddenly and peacefully last Friday evening after returning home from dinner out with her family. Eunice Whitney lived at Deep Springs from 1942-1948. She remained a life-long supporter of the college, and continued to be held in great affection and respect by alumni of that period.
Eunice’s husband Simon Whitney (DS’19) served as Dean/Director of the college during their residence together in the valley. Her daughter, Eunice Whitney (Beth) Thomas, served Deep Springs as Trustee from 2004 though 2012.
A memorial service is planned for Wednesday August 22 at 2 pm at the Falls Church Presbyterian Church, 225 East Broad St., Falls Church, Virginia. We will provide links to more information as it becomes available.
