Sally Graham Simon, 88, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 6, 2020.She was one of a kind. When Sally and Capt. Doug Simon moved to Norfolk, Virginia in 1980, she took the blooms found in her yard to the Norfolk Botanical Garden for identification, they won their first show and were hooked ever since. She was The Virginia Camellia Society; wearing many hats for many years. She will be greatly missed. But we have our memories and the MISS SALLY, a reticulata, with its very large red flowers, registered by Capt. Doug Simon in 2004.The Sally Simon Dedication will be held at the 2021 Fall Show.
