Nancy Stark Smith passed away this past Friday, May 1, 2020, from ovarian cancer. I got the news on Saturday from a Facebook post by Christina Svane that was shared around the world; Contact Quarterly has also posted a brief announcement, and created a Facebook page, “Nancy Stark Smith Harvest,” to collect sharings.
Here’s some other bits of news, information, and reflections:
- Here’s the obituary notice.
- I liked Keith Hennessy’s Facebook post about her.
- Dance Magazine did a nice article about Nancy.
- Another nice article from the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
- Nancy’s family requests that people make donations to Contact Quarterly in her name.
I’ll update this post as I have more information, or think of more to say.
Updates: Updated the CQ Facebook page link. Added obituary notice. Added link to Keith Hennessy’s Facebook post. Added Dance Magazine article link. Added CQ’s donate link. Added Daily Hampshire Gazette article link.
