She was extremely generous with her knowledge and, as a talented actress with a wicked sense of humour, she was a wonderfully entertaining speaker. I manned stalls and helpdesks at family history fairs with her a couple of times and fondly remember her spontaneously breaking into song whenever the notion took her.
Her passing leaves an enormous hole in our community and our hearts. She truly was an inspiration and will be sadly missed by her many friends. My deepest condolences to her family.
