She was a month shy of her 60th birthday.. At this moment, many of us who have been involved in NMEA for many years, are simply in shock, and unsure of how the organization will ever carry on without Johnette.. I am certain, however, that we will carry on, and that we will do so with the spirited efficiency and kindness that Johnette brought to her work each day.. Her intellect was understated and razor-sharp, her warmth immeasurable.. She called herself an assistant, but we all knew the truth--that she ran the place!.. For many years Johnette Bosarge was the only employee of NMEA.. She was the face of NMEA to many and kept the organization running.. Johnette is sorely missed by her friends and family, and by her NMEA family and NAME extended family as well.. Many of you have asked how you can support a lasting tribute to Johnette, and several people have spontaneously made donations.. to NMEA in Johnette's name.. In response to this outpouring, the Executive Committee of the NMEA Board of Directors have established the Johnette Bosarge Memorial Fund.. Details have not yet been finalized, but contributions to the fund will most likely be used to create an endowment supporting a scholarship to the NMEA Annual Conference each year--forever.. The fund may serve more than one purpose, but we all agree that sending a worthy recipient to the conference that Johnette loved so much and worked so hard to make successful would bring a big smile to her face.. The Executive Committee of the NMEA Board of Directors have established the Johnette Bosarge Memorial Fund.. If you would like to contribute, make your check payable to NMEA, and write on the memo line, In Memory of Johnette.. Mail to: Don Hudson, NMEA Treasurer, 26 Mosquito Run, Arrowsic, Maine 04530..
