In memory of Joel Carothers

We are sad to learn of the passing this month of Joel Carothers, resident of New Mexico and formerly a Chicagoan. Our received knowledge is that Joel was one of the founding mothers of Artemis Singers back in 1980. If anyone knows more about Joel’s history with Artemis, we would welcome the information.*

Windy City Times has published a lovely remembrance of this lively and creative woman: http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/lgbt/PASSAGES-Joel-B-Carothers-dies/52485.html.

Our hearts go out to her partner Kate Winner and all of Joel’s family and friends.

*Update: we have gotten confirmation from one of our community Elders that indeed Joel was a founder of Artemis.
