Feeny Lipscomb - Former resident of Todos Santos, Spanish teacher and "Minister of Fun," Feeny Lipscomb died Monday, Aug. 22 in Taos, New Mexico, after a fierce and brave battle with cancer. Feeny lived by the credo "If it isn't fun, don't do it, and if you MUST do it, make it FUN!" - The Baja Western Onion

Some of you in the lower loop of Baja California may have known Feeny, Spanish teacher, Minister of Fun, and Priestess of Joy. She passed away Monday morning after an intense year of trying to heal herself of Stage 4 Breast Cancer. We, her friends in Todos Santos, would like you to join us in a ceremony of Letting Go to ease our hearts and release her from our grief. Afterwards there will be a wake to remember and celebrate her magnificent spirit, Wednesday, August 24, 2011, 6:30 p.m. at the home of Isabel Smyth which is Teatro Luna Azul, Todos Santos. - Moonstone Mazzetti moonstonenow [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, 612-119-4098
