Dr. Dorine Chancellor - 1980 Past National BPW President and Past Arizona State President

It is with great sadness that we learned of Dorine's passing on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. She was 88.

Memorial services for Dorine will be conducted Saturday, October 1, 2022, at 10:00 a.m., at the First United Methodist Church in Safford by Pastor Corby Johnson. Dorine will be laid to rest in the Fairlawn Cemetery in Kentland, Indiana.

Dorine was a member and officer of the Business and Professional Women's Clubs. She joined the local club in Clifton in 1960 and over many years she rose through District, State and National officers to become the President of BPW/USA in 1980. Dorine campaigned vigorously for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, not only in Arizona but in Washington, D.C. and across the country. She continued her membership with Safford BPW, sharing her time and experience with working women closer to home.
