Sad News from Fellow RPCVs of NENY Member
Sadly, we have heard the news that Karen Donaldson passed away on January 27, 2021. She was the long-time partner of Bill Batt, who is a past-president of RPCVs of NENY and one of the members who started RPCVs of NENY. Bill served in Thailand from 1962 to 1964 and shared that Karen visited Thailand with him twice over the 20 years they spent together. Sending peace and support to Bill from his RPCV family. Attached to this email is Karen's obituary, photo and a lovely photo and note from her time as a pediatrician.
Also, I wanted to share this article posted today, Fifty years of service: Peace Corps workers cherish human contacts, life-altering experiences, which features many wonderful RPCVs of NENY members including Bill.
