Screen Shot 2016-04-29 at 11.53.59 AMWelcome to Central OH MWC Chapter

Our meetings are the first Thursday of every month.  We meet at 7-9pm at a private residence where we can relax and kick off our shoes. Refreshments provided.  Please join us!  We realize taking that first step is huge and certainly daunting! We remember.

RSVP: Please email Chapter Leader Andi Malinger at andi@modernwidowsclub.com

The first few weeks after Andi’s husband died, she had great support from her inner circle of friends and family.  And no matter how well intentioned they were and how much they loved her…they just didn’t know what it felt like to be in her shoes.  So she turned to Google.  “I was so surprised when I typed in the words ‘young widow’, what that search revealed.  Images of spiders…Scarlett Johannsen…entries that showed widows in such a negative light.  And then I saw Modern Widows Club and immediately signed up for the newsletter and Facebook group when I saw that there wasn’t a group in Columbus.” As soon as she reached the two-year mark she applied to start the group in Central Ohio.

Andi is a former high school teacher, a theater director, and a mother to her two children. For more information, please reach out to Andi at andi@modernwidowsclub.com

Darla has lived eight years as a widow without peers to help her navigate her “new normal”.  She is turning to this group looking for that support and to offer her support to others.  When she isn’t running her children to their activities, she enjoys reading, exercising, and has a knack for organizing.  She loves listening to live music whenever she has the opportunity.
