Shari's mom passed away on Tuesday night. She never woke up after the stroke.
Her name was Patricia Lucille Luther and she was born in North Platte, Nebraska on July 16, 1936. She was loved by a lot of people and she will be buried at the Oregon farm where Shari was born. Patty was a beatnick in the 1950s and she joined the commune in Oregon in 1959 and had five children including Shari. When the commune ended she was one of the women who stayed and married a man who was taking care of three other women who had kids at the commune. She had a lot to do with the commune becoming a Christian church. I never really got to meet her or know her but with all the people who are here right now I can tell she was loved. Her funeral will be in Oregon next Saturday (the 16th).
