I am writing to tell you that Cathe Browman died today, July 18, after what most of you know was a long, long illness. She died at home, very peacefully, and I was with her. As many of you also know, Cathe loved Haskins and was deeply committed to helping it continue to be the unique, intellectually creative and nourishing place that it is. I have had occasion over the last couple of months to assure her that Haskins continues to be that place.
There will be no formal funeral or memorial service. Diamandis Gafos and I have over the last month begun to plan an Articulatory Phonology conference in her honor/memory on the Greek island of Chios, in summer of 2010. Those wishing to make a gesture of remembrance can make a contribution to the CT Chapter of the National MS Society or to the Cathe Browman Fund for Exploration at Haskins Laboratories.
