Re: [SACC-L] Ellen Johnson
- Her husband Phil has not responded yet...he is not well himself and he has been working with Ellen's family to get her back to Napierville, though he himself did not think she could survive a flight...so we who love her must be content that she was kept from more suffering...but I still think of her dancing in the streets, jumping on a cable car with me in San Francisco, greeting me and Sally at her family cottage in her beloved Lakeside every Spring with that smile between those rosy cheeks, doggedly going to every Asian session at every AAA meeting, reading and keeping every anthropology book ever written for students...

Subject: [SACC-L] Ellen Johnson
Bill Byrne wrote a few hours ago to say that Ellen Johnson died Sunday in Siberia. The shock and pain that her family must be feeling is to me unimaginable. I've known Ellen since 1990 when I joined SACC and have always looked forward to her cheerful and upbeat presence at conferences. Her death is a tragedy and she will be missed.
