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.
