MARY KATHLEEN MCCLEARY POSNER (1939 - 2019) Mary McCleary Posner spent a lifetime dedicated to her community, Missouri, and the United States. A native of Columbia, Missouri, she earned her undergraduate and her master's degrees in Fine Arts and Business Administration before launching a successful career. She served as President of Posner McCleary Inc., an international firm specializing in management consulting, marketing, advertising and financial relations. Inspired as the daughter and spouse of veterans, Mary used her skills as the co-founder and president of The Memorial Day Weekend Salute to Veterans Corporation. Under Mary's guidance for the past thirtythree years, the Corporation created and hosted the annual six-day celebration to “Honor and Remember Those Who Served and Those Currently Serving in Our Armed Forces, Guard, Reserves and Our Allies.” Selkirk is honored to offer Mary’s fine collection.
