I missed seeing her at AEJ this year, so this news falls heavy on the heart.  It's really hard to lose allies and leaders like Von.
She was a friendly, able soul who always had time to talk.  She'll be missed.

Like many who knew Von, I feel the impact of this news deeply.  Von was warm, generous in spirit, and funny.  She also was an amazing leader who knew how to straddle the type of differences that could immobilize most other people...Rest well, our good and faithful servant.
Let's embrace her family and colleagues in whatever ways we can as they navigate through this difficult time.

Yours in sorrow,

Dear AEJMC & MAC member:

This is to share with you sad news that Jennifer sent out to the AEJMC Board
this morning.  Von Whitmore was a dedicated worker in AEJMC and a dear
friend to many of us.

Subject: AEJMC sad news

I am sending this message to both the outgoing and incoming AEJMC Boards.

Von Whitmore died this morning from ovarian cancer.  I just had a message
from one of her colleagues at Kent State.

Von had been a member of the AEJMC Board for the past 4 years as vice chair
and chair of the Council of Divisions.

As I have more information I will send that along.

We will also send an email out to the Council of Divisions.
