We are sad to hear that long-time MW*C attendee and staffer Sheryl Adsit passed away on January 8, 2022. She ran the Fannish Video room and Fannish Video competition for many years.
(From Lori) Sheryl was a beloved friend and part of the MediaWest*Con fannish community and staff for so many years and it was always great seeing her in person at least once a year, before Covid and advancing ages and deteriorating health and finances complicated matters. I still remember her appearance as a contestant on Jeopardy, too; a dream many of us have held!
Condolences to family and fellow friends.
We were sorry to hear that long-time MW*C attendee James Castleberry has died. Many may remember him from the FOE blaster battles.

My mom, Bev Singer, died peacefully, in her sleep tonight. My brother, Allen J. Singer and I were with her, visiting. We had just told her what a great mom she was, and noticed she had stopped breathing. She died, surrounded by her loved ones, the way she wanted.
We made it to the Jim Henson exhibit at the Henry Ford museum!
Annie Walton, Texas long-time MW*C attendee known for her creativity and warmth, passed in her sleep after succumbing to myriad health issues. She is missed.
We are sorry to report that long-time MediaWest*Con attendee and FoE member Ginna Wilcoxen has passed away in her sleep. She participated in the Buffy shadowcasts and ran the game room at MW*C 37.
