All of us here at CWA are in shock, trying to deal with the loss of one of our own. Marion Lane, long time CWA supporter and animal advocate, has left this world. Our condolences go out to her family and friends.
This is what Amy Shojai said in her blog earlier today about Marion:
“Marion Lane was a gifted writer, passionate pet advocate, brilliant editor and mentor to writers both new and established. I first met Marion when she worked at the ASPCA, and I was honored to write for her when she served as editor of the award-winning ASPCA magazine. She also authored two books, Heritage of Care: The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and The Humane Society of the United States Complete Guide to Dog Care: Everything You Need to Keep Your Dog Healthy and Happy.
Amy shares more of her memories of Marion in her blog: Marion Lane, Retired Person – A New Star Is Born. For those of you who knew Marion, please feel free to share a memory either here or on Amy’s blog.
Marion’s close friend Andrey Pavio adds “If you would like to honor Marion’s memory, please consider making a donation to the ASPCA in her name. Marion was a former editor at the A, and was a strong believer in their work for animals.”
