They always say that things come in twos and threes and that
includes the passing of people whom you care about and have left
their marks on your life.

On October 1st, Addrena “Supergrams” Squires passed away in
Mississippi where she had been taken care of by her daughter
Mona Adams Winston. And then just this past Saturday, I learned
that Dr. Fannie Frazier Hicklin passed away at the age of 101 on
Friday, October 18th. And then I just learned about an hour ago
that Mother Jacqueline “Jackie” Wright had passed. Three scions
— three queens — of Madison’s African American community and
beyond were taken from us in three short weeks.

Anyone who has been involved in Madison’s Juneteenth Day
celebrations for the past 30 years knew Addrena. She was always
right there helping out with the committee and was always present
at many a community festival and activity. She was also involved
in the Urban League Guild and the Wisconsin Women of Color
Network and had been its president, if I am not mistaken. I would
always run into Addrena, something that I would take for granted.
People often say that I am everywhere. Well Addrena was right up
there with me.

And then in order to take care of her, Mona moved Addrena down
to northern Mississippi where she has lived the past 5-6 years.
