Katya Baturinsky — The family of author and long-time fan Katya Baturinsky is saddened to announce that she passed away suddenly, but quietly, at home from a bout of the flu. She enjoyed many fandoms, and her friends often teased her about always going for the latest Shiny toy. She helped recruit others into many classic fandoms like UNCLE and Pros with DVDs and ‘zines, and wrote well loved stories in UNCLE. Her quick and sometimes sarcastic wit was coupled with an overwhelmingly generous nature. She was both brilliantly intelligent and a complete ‘blonde.’ While she only attended MediaWest*Con a few times, she was a prolific con-goer to the smaller, more local cons. Privately, she was devoted to her family and shared funny stories about them with close friends. She is greatly missed.
Anyone wishing to send condolences to the family can e-mail: Jersey.firstname.lastname@example.org for the address.
