PWQA mourns Mary Layton
It is with great sadness that PWQA announced the passing of Mary Bryant Layton. The organization lost a true pioneer of the water improvement industry in California. She was a founding member of PWQA with her husband, Glenn M. Layton, who served as President in 1966-67. Mary’s sons Michael and Chris both served as association President, in 1977-78 and 1988-89 respectively. Her granddaughter, Kristi Pihl, served as the Executive Director of PWQA for many years. Glenn, Michael, Chris and Kristi all received honors as Hall of Fame members. A funeral mass was held in Newport Beach on February 14. The family requests donations be made to the St. Joseph Hospital Orange Foundation, 1010 West LaVeta Avenue, Orange, CA 92868.
