SAD NEWS
We are very sad to learn that one of our good friends Beth Tremblay Rojas left on her Spiritual Journey. She was an integral part of the MCNAA pow-wows..... always ready to help in some way. You might remember her best as a Jingle Dress Dancer amongst most of the pow-wow circles. I’ve pasted below more information on Beth. One is from a public Face Book page and the other from the Salem News and a photo that appeared with the obituary.

From Face Book:
 
“Elizabeth (Beth or Liz to those who knew her best) Tremblay Rojas passed away in the early morning on Friday, February 19th, 2010 after battling colon cancer for roughly 17 months. The pain is fresh and we are all grieving the loss of one of the most beautiful souls (inside and out) to ever have graced this earth with her presence. And as she was also among the most humble, she will kill me for having just said that. She will be missed by all.

Team Tremblay will remain open and active in hopes of doing cancer walks and raising awareness and money for cancer research. Beth would want her death to count for something. To mean something. And I think that she would be pleased if we were to help others. it is what she would have done herself.
