Gini Dideum

Marie Mueller

Mary Pat Silveira




The AAUW of Oregon state named gift honorees are nominated by the board of directors and branch leaders. They are asked to select people who have elevated AAUW state activities in a special project or ongoing basis. This year there are five State Named Gift Honorees:

PAT LEHMAN Pat has held several branch and state positions, including state membership vice president. She was on the national membership committee, and a founder and sustainer of the WINGS conference at Clatsop Community College. As our COVID co-president, Pat has “joined” many of the branches on their Zoom meetings, in addition to all the state meetings. She was able to visit around the state without leaving her home in Seaside. She is known to be a great collaborator, ideas person, and source of encouragement and positivity.

SUE KLUMPH Sue is an insurance account manager in Grants Pass and has served in the branch and state since 1998. We have been so fortunate to have Sue in place as co-president during these stressful COVID times, as there is no one better at encouraging individuals, while sharing her genuine love of AAUW and her appreciation for everyone’s efforts.

GINI DIDEUM Gini is a quantitative and qualitative wonder. She is the most knowledgeable person about all things having to do with dues, membership categories, and database procedures. Starting as state dues treasurer, then elected as state membership vice president as well, she continued to give stellar service in both offices, going above and beyond to make sure the branches are in good standing and coordinating accurate membership records.

MARIE MUELLER Marie served as branch secretary and newsletter editor, who was appointed, then elected to serve as state secretary. She has done a wonderful job keeping good records and is an excellent editor who has enhanced every task she assumes. We are beneficiaries of her journalism and technical writing skills.

MARY PAT SILVEIRA -Mary Pat is an exemplary district director, meeting regularly with the branch presidents on Zoom, and she hosted them in person last summer at her favorite winery. She is a member of all the branches in her district and goes to many of their meetings. Her organizational and analytical skills have been invaluable as AAUW of Oregon credentials chair.
