In Memorium: Vicki Rosen

Vicki Rosen, president of the Upper Noe Neighbors and longtime community activist, died on Thursday June 11 after a long fight with cancer.

We received this note from the Upper Noe Neighbors mailing list today:
Dear Friends and Neighbors,

It is with great sorrow we announce that Vicki Rosen passed away Thursday, June 11 and was buried at Eternal Home Cemetery in Colma on Friday in a small graveside service. She led our community for over two decades, inspired a sense of civic duty, and left a legacy of public service. 

The community is discussing a memorial plaque in her honor to be installed at Upper Noe Rec Center. Later in the year, there will be a dedication and celebration of her life. If you would like to help plan or donate to the dedication please let us know. Donations can be sent to Upper Noe Neighbors at 205 30th Street, San Francisco, CA 94131.

Upper Noe Neighbors will carry on the tradition of hosting presentations and public discussions of current events, and welcome all neighbors to participate. Join us on July 8 at 7:30 pm at Upper Noe Rec Center at 295 Day Street. We will be discussing the changes to the San Jose Avenue off-ramp of 280 Northbound.

Marianne and Olga
(with grateful help from Tom, Eileen, and Chris)
You can read a community profile of Vicki in the Dec 2012 Noe Valley Voice, and a longer memorial page is set up here. RIP.
