Laura Nel, a long time RAPC member died at 83 years old on September 16, 2018 Eleven current and former RAPC members attended Laura Nel’s “Celebration of Life” on Saturday, September 22 (see attached photos). Several other members were unable to attend due to the effects of Friday evening’s tornado.
The attendees shared memories with Laura’s family and friends at the Celebration held in Courtside B at the RA Centre. Laura’s gentle, non-judgmental, always helpful nature came through in all the sharing. Along with the many spoken memories was an extensive collection of Laura’s photography. Large and small prints, as well as four of the excellent AV shows she created while an active member of RAPC, were on display.
Memories of Laura inviting RAPC members to photograph local birds at her home, and her travels with other RAPC members to China and Africa, brought smiles to many faces.
