Rich: Nancy Bancroft wanted you in the Class 0f 1960 to
know about the death of her sister.
Tom, if you have contact with the alumni coordinator for the class just behind
us -- Class of 1960 -- please forward this to let them know that their classmate (my
sister) Beverly Bancroft died of cancer this past Tuesday, July 30. Her life was
beautiful, and her death was peaceful. She lived for many years in France and is
survived by her family there: the author and art critic, John Berger; their
son, Yves, his wife Sondra; and two lovely grandchildren -- Melina, age 11, and Vincent,
age 3. Her funeral was at 11:30 this morning at the (only) church in Mieussy, a town
in HauteSavoie, France.
classmate David Henderson has written Beverly a tribute in the Boomer Cafe dated January
20, 2014. You can find it at The Boomer Cafe
