Some members of the NewtonTalk list will know who Mimi Cippolone is, but the majority of you won't. Mimi was a very active member of SONUG (the Southern Ontario Newton User Group) based in Toronto and had a creative knack for resurrecting and refurbishing old eMates.


Sadly, Mimi passed away on June 1st after a long illness.


The following is a post from the SONUG mailing list.

> Hello out there,
> I came across this very sad news in the obituary section this morning.
> I remember Mimi as a very gentle and generous person. Many of you were probably at the SONUG meeting(s) held at her house.  I know her interest in saving and refurbishing eMates was driven by her work with "special needs" kids in the Toronto school system.
> I hadn't seen her in many years. I wonder if anyone who knew her better or had more recent contact would like to send a message to the Newtontalk list?
> You might mention that her photo can be seen in the book "Cult of Mac" -- I don't have the page reference handy because I'm at work at the moment.
> Best wishes,
> Michael
