There will never be a good time to say this so I'll just say it now.
My mother, Judy Segal, died this evening, fairly suddenly and completely unexpectedly.
I expect the funeral will be on Sunday, but that's not certain yet, though it absolutely will be in Pawling. I will be heading there tomorrow (Friday).

What any time between now and the 27th looks like, I have no idea as yet. At some point I'll probably do something like sitting shiva. At some other point I'll probably hold a farewell celebration, also in NY.

Offers of practical help - "I've been through this and can try to answer questions for you when you have them" - are very welcome. Of especial interest is anyone who's dealt with a house with a reverse mortgage on it.

Anyone who knows people who want a collection of old Star Trek fanzines should also let me know.

Please feel free to share this with all who knew her.

Judith Z Segal - 9/25/1935-11/17/2016

Oh I am sorry to hear about your mother. You can donate the collection to anyone of the existing fanzine special collections

If these are slash zines, there is also the k/S Fanzine lending library.

Feel free to PM me as well.

I started a barebones bio page for her on Fanlore, the fan run wiki about media fandom. Please feel free to edit (or to send me material to add on your behalf)

I don't think we've met. I volunteer on several fandom history projects so we may have crossed paths. I live in San Jose, CA and have been a media fan for 20+ years.
