It is with great sadness that we must report that Patricia Westheimer has passed away. To many of us this will seem very sudden but Patricia has been ill for some time. She bore her illness with great strength and maintained her enthusiasm to the end. A journalist, author and teacher, Pat was loved and respected by many people from all walks of life, ages, and across different religions and cultures, while remaining a pillar of her own community. She will be greatly missed and our sincere condolences go to her loved ones at this difficult time. For those who wish to, and are able to attend, a service will be held tomorrow at the:Cemitério Israelita Principal in LisbonAv. Afonso III No 441900-041 Lisboa(Near the Cemetery at Alto São João)Time: 13:00It will be a service of the Jewish faith so dark clothes and no flowers would be appropriate.

I join in you in sadness of hearing of Pat Westheimer's passing this morning. A lady with great energy. We had many interesting discussions and I loved hearing about her trips to China to teach. She was a founder member of International Women in Portugal (IWP) and only last months pictures of her attending the planning meetings 25 years ago were included in our newsletter. She will be greatly missed. Christine Rola
