It is with great sadness that we announce the deaths of two beloved Friends of the Pen Women.
Roger Couture, beloved spouse of Darlene Weingand with whom he attended our monthly meetings, passed away the end of July. A faithful supporter of the Pen Women, he will be sorely missed by all who knew him. A Requiem Mass will be held at St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Kapahulu in Waikiki on August 12 at 10am. A rosary will precede the Mass at 9:30 and a social hour will take place afterward in the church hall.
Norma Wunderlich Gorst, former Friend and a respected local poet,passed away at her home in Kailua on July 29. Many of you will remember Norma as a quiet, gentle and elegant lady who often graced our May meetings with readings of her poetry. A Memorial Service will take place at St. John's Lutheran Church, 1004 Kailua Drive, on Saturday, August 5 at 10:30am
Our condolences go out to the families of both these fine Friends.
