Shreeve's continued promotion of teaching and research in chemistry is paralleled only by her exceptional and distinguished service to the American Chemical Society as a member of editorial boards and local and national committees. Her activities have included service as Inorganic Program chairman for regional meetings; officer and/or councilor of the Washington-Idaho Border Section, the Fluorine Division, and the Inorganic Division; and director of Region VI. She also has served as a member of the Petroleum Research Fund Advisory Board and the Board of Directors of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Currently she is a member of the University of Chicago Board of Governors for Argonne National Laboratory. Her service on editorial boards includes the Journal of Fluorine Chemistry since 1970; Accounts of Chemical Research, 1973- 1975; Inorganic Synthesis since 1976; and Heteroatom Chemistry since 1988. This service reflects her deep and continuing interest in research, which she regards as "important and rewarding . . . to all who are faculty members at a research university."
Today, Shreeve enjoys puttering in the garden, fishing, skiing, and driving fast. Most of all, however, she delights in chemistry and her co- workers, both in the lab and in the research office. A true pioneer, she has left as her legacy to the University of Idaho a distinguished program in chemistry that has achieved international recognition. A co-worker stated that her achievements were possible because of her "own personal creativity, tenacity and love of chemistry."
