Re: sad news re Mary Stolzenbach
- Thank you for letting us know, Grace. I will always remember Mary,
not only for her wit and her decided opinions, but also for her
willingness to step into thankless tasks. She was a great help to us
at the 2002 Mythcon registration room. I am very glad that she was
with the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award Committee this year, as it gave all
of us one more chance to know her.

- Her sons will be at her home this week, if you have that address. Otherwise
you can send it to the parish and I'll make sure it gets to them. She was a
rare friend and I will miss her greatly.

- I was very sad to hear of Mary's passing. I only knew her from two
Mythcons and this list, but I very much enjoyed her energy, costumes,
and clerihews, not to mention her participation in this list and the MFA
award committee list. I may not have always shared her opinions about
books or other matters, but I always respected them. She will be

not meet Mary many times (five, I think), but she was
a luminous person that I will never forget.
- Dear all,
We read briefly before leaving for MythCon 37 that Mary had fallen and
hurt herself--but did not learn until speaking with Edith that she had
passed, the news of it was posted while we were traveling.
We were devestated to say the least. The Nashville 2003 MythCon was
our first and she really made us feel welcome, and emailing us a few
times a week, making us feel one with the group and it was through
Mary we were able to know who was who when we arrived. We shall never
forget her warm heart and soul.
For those friendly with her family please send our blessings.
Anthony and Jessica
