We are deeply saddened to report the death of Phoebe S. Leboy on Saturday, June 16, 2012. PASEF President Elect Ross Webber issues the following statement:
"We were all saddened to hear of Phoebe's death. She was a valued member of the PASEF Executive Committee and a tireless fighter for gender equality in academia. We admired her courage, honesty and capacity to continue working despite the debilitating effects of her illness. Those of us who served on University committees with Phoebe will always remember her insightful and "to the point" comments. The greatest contribution we can make to her memory is to continue to advocate for those issues which were so important to her. She was a wonderful colleague and we miss her."
