Damn

Juanita Sharp has died.

I wouldn't have read the obituary above except that someone on the OryCon mailing list pointed to it. Juanita was a lifelong SF fan who helped run the Worldcon when it was in Portland in 1950.

She lived just down the block. I never knew. She was just this nice old lady who had a huge garden and walked her little dog Willy every day.

I never knew.

Damn.
