My old boss died last weekend. She was an amazing woman and a great mentor. She used to take me out to lunch and tell stories about what publishing was like in its heyday. She had to fight her parents to go to college when they wanted to send her to secretarial school. Then she became one of the first women to run a publishing house. She was kind, funny, smart and tough. At the service, her daughter told the story of her pregnant mother running ten blocks to the hospital after she'd gone into labor.

Read more about her here. She was a neat lady and will be missed.

Nice tribute. You led me to read an obituary of someone I didn't know and had never heard of--that has to be good for some cosmic karma points.
