Chamber mourns loss of recent Tribute to Women Business Leaders honoree Edith McAllister

On June 21, your Chamber honored lifelong philanthropist and art lover Edith McAllister with the Legacy Award at our Tribute to Women Business Leaders luncheon. Her daughter, Taddy McAllister, accepted the award on behalf of her mother, telling the crowd that her mother had recently fallen and was lying gravely weak at home, surrounded by family. This week, we received news that Edith had passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday. We are extremely saddened at the loss of a woman whose dedication and countless contributions to our community are nothing short of inspirational, and her family and friends remain in our thoughts and prayers. We are honored to have had the opportunity to celebrate a lovely, vivacious woman who openly and honestly displayed a deep and unrelenting love for the city of San Antonio.
