This went out via the FB page a couple of days ago and was confirmed by a mutual friend.
Long-time forum contributor and Gen Con attendee Sherilyn Daugherty passed away on October 3rd. She had been battling cancer for quite some time.
I only had the opportunity to game with her once during the giant Lego pirate game a few years back, and she was a hoot. She was also a big part of the community here on the forums.
