Some sad news

Post  The Glen on Mon Jan 14, 2013 6:45 pm

I'm sorry to say that a longtime member on the previous boards, phoebesmum (Hilary) passed away earlier this month about eighteen months after her cancer diagnosis, though she had been ill for a long time. Many people here or on Livejournal will remember her as witty, acerbic, a fandom enthusiast and a great friend.

Rather than flowers (her funeral is on January 25) she preferred charitable donations, so I'm linking the charity page for Sobell House hospice that her close friend set up.

Rest in peace, phoebesmum.

I saw your post about it on FB, The Glen when she went into the hospice and wondered how she was. I'm so very sorry to hear this. I remember her well from previous incarnations of the board. May she rest in peace.

Oh, how sad. I remember her from past SF incarnations (and maybe even FT?). I seem to remember that she had a Great Dane who was the eponymous "Phoebe." So sorry to hear this.
