This has not been a good year for the Baker Street Irregulars. Once again, we have lost one of our own: Maureen Green Van der Flaes, BSI ("Kitty Winter") passed away yesterday, October 18, after suffering severe head injuries from a fall. Maureen was also a long-time member of the Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes.
As a Toronto-area Sherlockian, her husband, Edwin Van der Flaes, BSI ("Victor Trevor") has indicated that he doesn't want it to affect the ACD@35 weekend which is starting today.
I'm sorry to say that I didn't know Maureen personally. Any recollections of her are welcome in the comment section below. I'll add her obituary when it's published (see below).
