I am sorry to have to tell you that our friend Jeanette McAllister passed
away at a young age.  She was a very fine human being and have generously
offered her time to others.  She was one of the two Resume Doctors on the
Employment Committee, and did a lot of work with individual blind people.
One of her greatest successes was helping a young woman named Kelsey find a
job, and she took great pride in Kelsey's later accomplishments.  We will
miss her a lot.

Dick Davis, Chair
NFB Employment Committee

Dear Committee Members,
> I was shocked to read this.  Jeanette is gone.  I had no indication of any
> illness, so it looks sudden to me.  We never met face to face, but we were
> friends for years.  She worked hard and would do anything to help other
> blind people.  Her obituary is attached.
> We just lost Jerry Whittle, and Arlene Hill is in her last days on earth.
> Both had worked at the Louisiana Center.  Jerry's obituary came out
> earlier  on nfbnet.  Please include all three of them in your thoughts and
> prayers.
> Take care, all of you.  Stay healthy.
> Dick Davis
