In Memoriam

August 31st, 2008 (08:23 pm)

My friend Grace Buol, of Bradenton, Florida, died yesterday of renal cancer. She performed many, varied jobs during her long and colorful career, including judge, newspaper editor, writer, photographer, preacher, and woodworker. She was first vice-president of the National Federation of Press Women (http://www.nfpw.org/) and held many other leadership positions within NFPW. Grace had a dry, razor-sharp sense of humor that could be off-putting at first to those who didn't know her, but she always won people over with her eloquence, dedication, curiosity, intelligence, and kindness. She will be missed.
