Mrs. Tyrrell is a daughter of Emma Evans Hall, who was a student of Pat Burr and taught with Pat at ECS for a short period of time. They became close friends and remained in touch. Pat had given Mrs. Hall a 30 by 40 painting of sunflowers and Mrs. Tyrrell wished to donate that painting to our museum in her mother’s memory.
