In November (GNM 711025) I mentioned that Paula Mandell was very ill and no longer able to post the messages. She was at home in hospice care. I am sad to inform you that Paula passed away last Friday, at home with her family. She is survived by her best friend and husband, Steve Christensen, and her three daughters Lauren, Tess and Abby.
Paula gave generously of her time, talents and wisdom to CfM since 1996, and was a member of the Board from 2000 to 2005.
Please read more about her here (scroll to bottom). The Citizens for Midwifery Board will truly miss her, along with all who knew and loved her.
