Memorial Web Page for Deborah J. "Misty" Gerner
5 January 1956 - 19 June 2006
I am living
with a chronic illness.
Every day is a success,
every friendship a joy,
every insight a gift, and
every accomplishment worth
In this moment,
I am alive.
Deborah J. Gerner
Short biography taken from the program at the Oread Friends Meeting memorial service.
This page has links to various obituaries and “In memoriam” essays
that have appeared in print, as well as the texts of some of the tributes read at her memorial
This page has -- I think -- links to all of the "MistyList" email messages that were sent
out from October 2002 to June 2006.
This links to a copy of the home page that Misty maintained at the University
of Kansas; there are links to her c.v., an assortment of papers, and class sites.
This page has information on some awards that have been established by various organizations
to honor Misty's interests in teaching and research.
There probably should be 100 rules, but this is a start.
An assortment of links to various institutions that were involved in Misty's treatment
and other assorted web sites
If you are interested in making a contribution in Misty's memory,
had particular interest in the "Ad Mundum" ("to the world") fund at her
undergraduate alma mater, Earlham College (http://www.earlham.edu/). This is
an endowment that she established a number of years ago to provide need-based
supplemental funding to undergraduates doing study abroad. Earlham's
can be used for this.
