You are invited to Retirees Group for a presentation focused on Retaining the Repeal of the Death Penalty in Nebraska on Tuesday, September 13th from 1:00-2:00 at Second Unitarian Church. Our guest will be Marylyn Felion, who shares her experience of accompanying Robert Williams to the electric chair, the last person executed in Nebraska.
Marylyn began writing to Robert Williams while he was on death row for 20 years. After two years of correspondence, she was allowed private visits as a Sister of Mercy chaplain. She listened as he came to grips with the horror and brutality of killing two women. Not long before he was executed, Robert asked Marylyn to accompany him to the death chamber. She agreed and walked behind him.
Retirees Group meets monthly for socialization and learning. You don’t have to be retired to attend—all are welcome!
