It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Mary Gavan. Mary’s contributions to storytelling and to SC-CC were many. She was an active member of SC-CC for many years and served as President, and was presently our treasurer. She succumbed to a heart attack while vacationing in India, but we have no other details at present. We will miss her.
