Felicia Stidham: Dish Colleague and Friend
A memorial service was held on Monday for Felicia Stidham, president of her own high-end boutique real estate firm in Georgetown and writer/columnist for The Georgetown Dish. Born in 1946, Felicia sold co-ops and brownstones in New York after starting out in the wholesale fashion industry. Passionate about Georgetown, preservation and historic houses, she wrote a series of articles, Georgetown Reveries. She also found time for the community contributions, including stints on the boards of the Friends of Book Hill, the Georgetown Business Association, the Georgetown Ministry and Trees for Georgetown.
At the service, in St. John’s Church on O Street, west of Wisconsin Avenue, long-time friend Elliot Epstein talked about Felicia’s passion for gardening, the cocktail hour and reading and possibly following etiquette books.
“Everyone at The Georgetown Dish is sad to lose Felicia, one of our founding contributors,” said Beth Solomon, publisher. “We are a young publication and have had little experience with such losses. We will therefore cherish her memory that much more.”
