Baroness TSivia bas Tamara v'Amberview reports that Countess Elaina Oaklawn, known to many as "Miss-Information" at Pennsic, has died in the Kingdom of Ealdormere.
Her Excellency writes:
It is with a sad heart that I have to announce the following to the Known World:
Today (Sunday) at approximately 3 pm, Countess Elaina Oaklawn ("Miss-Information" at Pennsic for many years, daughter of Lord Ralph the Chandler) passed away at home. At this moment her widower, Master Cerdic, has support from myself and Countess Melissa Kendall of Westmoreland, (their housemate). Funeral arrangements will be announced as soon as they are available.
Elaina was a Lady of the Rose and Countess of the East Kingdom. The Countess was a strong supporter of organ donation - her wishes are being honoured - and Master Cerdic urges all who are of this opinion to sign organ donor cards and let their friends and family know this.
Master Cerdic can be emailed at: email@example.com.
PLEASE DISTRIBUTE THIS INFORMATION AS WIDELY AS POSSIBLE TO ALL APPLICABLE LISTS.
With great sorrow
Baroness TSivia bas Tamara v'Amberview, OL, OP Watchee, Great Dark Horde
