The Here And Now
Page Lewis/Sharon Fetter/DeForest Kelly
Sadly, we lost two older fans this past week. Page Lewis was a Star Trek fan who ran fan clubs for George Takei and Grace Lee Whitney. She also published fanzines and was a frequent attendee at Shore Leave. We have set up her Fanlore page here: http://fanlore.org/wiki/Page_Lewis

Her friend Roberta Rogow asked me to pass along this info:
"Condolences may be sent to Page's brother, James Lewis, 869 Brimer Rd, Newnan GA 30263. We discussed memorials and floral tributes, and he thinks that a donation to a local charity that directly benefits people struggling with mental and physical difficulties would be more appropriate, since Page wasn't a fan of cut flowers (she said they bothered her sinuses, and the cat might eat them!)."

Star Trek and Professionals fan Sharon Fetter also passed recently.  Her Fanlore page is here: http://fanlore.org/wiki/Sharon_F and you are welcome to add your memories. If you don't have a Fanlore account, you can email the Gardeners at: gardeners@fanlore.org  or  drop me a note and I will add it to Fanlore for you.

We have a tag set up for fans who have passed. If you are in a reflective or contemplative mood, check out the list and see if you have memories or recollections you'd like to include: http://fanlore.org/wiki/Category:Deceased

And last, shortly after the actor Deforest Kelly died in 1999, charitable donations were set up in his name. One charity that was selected was the North Shore Animal League. Fans have revived the donation to help out the shelter. Info is here: http://www.animalleague.org/support/how-you-can-help/deforest-carolyn-kelley-memorial-fund.html

Oh no. No no no no. Not Sharon Fetter.

She was one of the first people I met when I finally found Pros fandom, and I sent her all my Professionals fan club stuff (not even realizing how stupid that was, because it was pretty much all one of a kind), which she photographed and made available to people. I can't believe that. So so sad. I will try to add something to her page.
