Jeanne van Gorkom died April 15 2006, age 75 years. Jeanne joined the Humanist Society in the late 1970s and served in a number of positions including the Wellington branch committee. She was elected president of the society in 1991, 1992, and 1996, and was a long standing Humanist marriage celebrant and a recently appointed Civil Union Celebrant. She operated the Humanist Bookshop for many years and founded a Humanist Fellowship in Taranaki in 1994. I will remember Jeanne for the dignity of the ceremonies she conducted.
The Humanist Society of New Zealand holds regular monthly meetings on the first Monday of each month from 6pm, from February to November.
