Some sad news

It is with sadness that I pass on the following information: Von Whitmore died Aug. 25 from ovarian cancer.

Von had served as the chair of the Council of Divisions since the Denver Conference last summer, and had served as vice chair of the Council for the three years before that.

She was last at the mid-Winter meeting in Albuquerque. I didn't know her well, but she was always a genuinely nice person to me.
