Sherrill Womeldorff of Tulsa was awarded a quilt during the March 6 meeting of the Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees Quilt Guild in Grove.
Peggy Evans, who presented the program “A Revolution in Quilts,” also talked about the Quilts of Valor Foundation, whose mission is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing quilts.
When she learned of Womeldorff’s 21-year service in the Navy and Naval Reserve, she awarded the hand-made quilt to him on behalf of the Quilts of Valor Foundation. The presentation and standing ovation took Womeldorff by surprise.
During an emotional talk about his experiences in the service, he expressed his deep gratitude for the award. As Ms. Evans wrapped him in the quilt, she thanked him for his service.
