It is with great sorrow that the Una Chapman Cox Foundation announces the death of Margo Branscomb on October 12, 2022. Margo served as a trustee of the Foundation since 2004, and as president of the Foundation since 2013, following in the footsteps of Una Chapman Cox and of her father, Harvie Branscomb, who assisted Mrs. Cox with the establishment of the Foundation in 1980. Throughout, Margo demonstrated an unwavering support for the U.S. Foreign Service and a passion for the work of the Foundation. Her vision and her leadership remain an inspiration to all who had the good fortune to work with her. She will be sorely missed.
