RIP: Marie Jasinski

Died peacefully at Hobart on January 21, 2008. Much loved wife of Martin Cielens. Beloved daugheter of Dorothy Jasinski and Leonard Jasinski (dec.) Cherished sister of Jenny and John. Much loved sister-in-law of Janet Plater, Viesturs and Andrew Cielens, Kym Tilgals and Michelle Marsh, and daughter in law of Tatjana Tilgals. Adored “Auntie Rie” of Sam, Grace and Max Jasinski. To all of us, a friend, companion and guide; someone who wove webs of joy and adventure. An exceptional person who will be deeply missed yet lives in all of us.

I am saddened by the news.

To celebrate her wonderful life and her effect on some many people, an online event has been organised by Janine Bowes (see her tribute to Marie). Details:
Elluminate Live! session:

Name: Tribute To Marie Jasinski
Type: None
Starts: Jan 25, 2008 05:00 PM Eastern (EDT) (This is Australian Eastern time, GTM+10)
Ends: Jan 25, 2008 06:00 PM Eastern (EDT)

Format of the session - This celebration for Marie will be informal but will of course have a moderator. People attending may like to come along with a memory to share - it could be a favourite moment, a funny situation, a particular inspiration, a URL that illustrates a point, a game to play, whatever. Some of us in Hobart will attend having just come from the funeral service and audio of some of the presentations at the funeral may be available (technology permitting!). If anyone has media they would like to be pre-loaded, please email to Frankie Forsyth on [frankie at bigpond dot net]

RSVP for virtual catering purposes (please indicate any special dietary requirements) would be appreciated but not essential (RSVP to Janine Bowes [janine dot bowes at education dot tasdot gov dot au] by replying to this message and editing the subject line)

Position possibly vacant (moderator for this session)We have 3 possible moderators so far all of whom will be attending Marie's funeral service. Traffic jams are unusual in Hobart but you never know on a Friday afternoon. Thus, if anyone else is able to take on the moderator role it would be preferable. Volunteers please email me or phone on 0417 350 956.
