Dear members and friend,
I just received the very sad news that Kirsten Marie (Buchert) Roy passed away.
Kirsten served as director on the board of the Danish Canadian Society
in Montreal for many years. She was also editor of the newsletter and
our secretary. She was a key person in the production of the 1997
history book, FACES OF CHANGE, and spent many hours typing the
manuscript. The Danish Canadian Society will be honoring her at the
Seniors Fall Luncheon by adding her name to our Hall of Fame plaque.
