Boyd and Daphne Eaton

Daphne’s parents were founding members of Trinity Presbyterian Church. Her father was an elder and her mother sang in the choir. Daphne has been involved in a wide range of Trinity activities, from the ROMG (Royal Order of Mountain Goats), to serving on session, to the flower guild, and lots in between. Daphne and Boyd’s daughter was in the later incarnation of ROMG, the “Bare Bears” and was even the “Mommy Bear” – a great honor. Later she was married at Trinity; both sons enjoyed scouts. Daphne loves reading, playing bridge, and arranging flowers. All these interests have been nourished and abetted at Trinity!
