In Memory of Laura Shmyr

Dear members,
It is with heavy hearts we share with you all that a founding member of AVLIC, Laura Shmyr, has passed away. She was 84.
Laura was a pioneer interpreter in Regina, Saskatchewan, and was a sign language Interpreter for many years. As a founding member of AVLIC she mentored and steered many into the our profession. 
Although she retired from the profession some 20 years ago she volunteered frequently at services in her congregation. 
Our deepest sympathies go out to Laura's family and friends.
Ashley Campbell
AVLIC President
on behalf of the 2016-2018 AVLIC Board of Directors
