Our dear friend, Anthea Williams Cossette, passed away on Sunday, July 8, 2018. I first met Anthea in 2000, at the first Passive Members meeting in Oklahoma. At the time she was married to Andrew Cossette. I didn’t see her again until a similar meeting in Prescott, Arizona, some years later.
From our very first meeting, I was impressed by Anthea’s strength of character, intelligence and dedication to the mission. We reconnected almost a year ago, in July 2017, when she let me know that she was living in Flagstaff and we met a number of times for lunch or coffee whenever our busy schedules allowed. While we didn’t see each other often, I looked forward to our get togethers because Anthea exuded warmth, a noble kindness and a genuine loving quality that were unique and memorable qualities. [...]
