In Memoriam

We were so sad to learn that one of our most wonderful volunteers, Kate Howell, passed away unexpectedly over the weekend. Kate not only spent countless hours helping in our library, but also helped start the docent program at the Georgia Museum of Art, and we will miss her very much. Her obituary in the Athens Banner-Herald is here, and gives details on services. Thankfully, we have a great volunteer spotlight by which to remember her, written by the current publications department intern, Stephanie Kingsley. The article ran in the Winter 09 issue of the GMOA newsletter and a scan of it appears below (click on it to enlarge), in case you did not receive that issue or no longer have it. Stephanie did an amazing job documenting Kate's incredible life, and while the piece wasn't intended to serve as a memorial, it will let us remember a devoted volunteer and a fascinating woman.
