Sadly, we have some more unfortunate news in our area:

Regina Purvis, age 92, passed away on Jan. 21, 2012.  Reggie had suffered several strokes and had been living with her daughter for the past two years.  Up to then, she was active, swimming weekly and attending a senior exercise class. Reggie participated in NYS Empire Games and Senior Games, NYS and National, for many years.  She holds several Niagara District Masters records in the 85-89 age group for back, breast and free events.  Enthusiastic, generous and supportive Regina was a great swim buddy.  Her family included in the death notice that memorials to the USMS, Swimming Saves Lives Foundation are preferred.

Regina made the USMS Top Ten list 28 times dating back to 1995.
