Longtime Milk Club Member Terrrie Frye has passed away. In this photo, she is wearing a shirt from the Hole In The Wall, her favorite SOMA bar.
Longtime Harvey Milk Club Member Terrrie Frye passed away at age 74 on February 4th at a Washington Hospital in Fremont. (Read more about Terrrie Frye's life in the BAR.)
Unfortunately, Terrrie had been ill for quite sometime and missed most of our meetings last year.
Granny Gear, as Terrrie was known by many of us, had deep roots in the Milk Club and did not tolerate bullshit easily throughout her decades of progressive activism, particularly on AIDS and cannabis rights related issues.
As SF DCCC Chair David Campos put it in the BAR, "She was a feisty, outspoken activist with a heart of gold."
Terrrie Frye will be missed.
