Memories of Shona

From George Dameron

I feel privileged to have known Shona as a colleague and as a friend.  As a scholar, she was outstanding.  As a person, she was ever cheerful, funny, unpretentious, and so very generous with others.  Our paths crossed primarily at conferences, and I always looked forward whenever I saw her at a meeting to catching up with her on her work and to sharing meals with her, along with our other colleagues.  One memory of Shona that stands out for me is seeing her really enjoyng herself on the dance floor at Kalamazoo after a panel-packed day several years ago..  This is how I remember her:  an excellent historian and  a wonderful person. I wish to extend my deepest sympathy to her family.
