We regret to inform you of the passing of Betty Manning

Betty Manning passed away September 1st. She was the editor of The Wild Cascades for many years, and a staunch advocate for northwest wilderness. Her presence will be sorely missed.

Claudia Manning said,  "My mother ... almost died from pneumonia as a child and it left her with the use of only one lung, yet still she climbed, hiked, traveled, was an amazing artist, editor and went back to school when she was 45 to get her masters degree in librarianship."

Here are some photos of Betty, courtesy of Claudia.
