A Loss in An Tir

It is with sorrow that we announce the passing of Anya de Chaalis, who died early on the morning of 6 August after a long battle with a brain tumor.

Like many in the SCA, she was interested in a variety of subjects, including music, fencing, archery, and the scribal arts; she also staked out for herself a less-common field, that of trout fishing and the study and replication of period dry-flies (Izaak Walton is Period!). Her quiet grace and determination to learn in the face of disability will be sorely missed.
