She was 97. A life well lived.

It took the NY Times a long time to publish her obituary.

Was anyone around when she came back to give a talk at one of the film festivals? It was under a tent at the Gristmill if I remember correctly. She was pretty spunky still, but had a hard time getting around. It was probably 7 or 8 years ago now.

I was there. I said a few words about it in the Super Topo thread I linked to above.

That was at the SheClimbs gathering back in 2002. The event was held at the Gristmill. She had had hip replacement surgery which made it harder for her to get around, but was still full of energy. Loved her talk!
Here's an article about her visit:
