She was a hero to us on the Walk to Rivendell, list, too, Olwen. Challenging and feisty the whole way, and never a sour or self-pitying word.
Since most of us (on the Rivendell list) only knew her through the list, we're arranging a special memorial for her. Since she didn't make it to Rivendell, various members of the list (self included) are donating their miles to get her there in spirit.
I hate saying good-bye to people I've known, even if it was only electronically.....

Ro's viewing was held last Friday. A fairly large number of us from the Barony went although it was very hard for us. The mass was on Saturday although I could not bring myself to attend. Ro was a beacon, a hero to many here. She defied all odds and lived over 6 years after being given a forecast of only having about 1 year. She wasted no time, complained naught and volunteered for everything that came forth. She continued to give classes in brewing cordials, autocrat, troll, and was a member of our cooks guild, loving to come hwork on the solties (saying she had no artistic talent but wanted to play none-the-less). She was an avid writer of recommendations and wanted to make sure every single person was recognized for any efforts and works they did. I am honored to count myself as one of her friends.
Cariad a heddwch (love and peace)
Dame Olwen the Odd
