astoria (1916-2014)

My mother, and sometimes artistic collaborator (she drew the cover for A Sane Woman, for example), died on Saturday.

She was 98 years old, she had a full and productive life, she was cogent and 100% herself right up to the end, and she died in her sleep and apparently without pain.

I will miss her (I miss her already, actually), but that’s about as good a run as any of us get.

(Obviously I’ve also been thinking about my father these past few days. I wrote about him here.)
