Tacoma Hilltop Library Planning Committee

A community's lifeline to a network of learning

In Memoriam: Versa Alexander

“Grief is never something you get over. You don’t wake up one morning and say, ‘I’ve conquered that; now I’m moving on.’ It’s something that walks beside you every day. And if you can learn how to manage it and honour the person that you miss, you can take something that is incredibly sad and have some form of positivity.” Terri Irwin

It is with a heavy heart we learned of the passing of Versa Alexander.

We don’t know when we will get a Hilltop Library but when we do, we will always think of it as the Versa Alexander library. We will miss her leadership and grace.   We hope her family will find consolation in the respect and love we all had for her.
