A message from our ASH President

Good evening ASH members,

You never know what to do or say when you lose someone you work or care about so suddenly. The Histology family lost 2 beautiful people since last Friday.

Wanda Platt Jones was the wife of Lamar Jones, who if some of you remember, came 3 years ago and gave presentations at our Meeting in Sedona. Wanda was awarded NSH Histotechnologist of the Year in 2013 in Rhode Island. She worked in the IHC Department at Emory Healthcare before retirement. Wanda was a beautiful lady, who touched a lot of hearts with her kindness and who was always willing to help anyone who asked. Again, if you would like to donate to the family,you may do so by calling Harlan @ (205)425-2424.

Beth Keyer suddenly passed this past weekend. She was only 42 yr old. Beth was a graduate of the Pima Community College Histotechnology Program and was employed at Ventana Medical Systems. She loved animals and had a quiet and gentle nature. She will be sorely missed. Her memorial service will be held at Evergreen Mortuary, 3015 N Oracle Rd, Tucson AZ on Tuesday, Jan 31st at 2 pm. Alll are welcome to attend. Donations in her honor should be directed to the Humane Society of Southern AZ

Please keep these 2 families in your thoughts and prayers for Beth and Wanda will be greatly missed but forever in our memories.
