In Memoriam: Mary K. Satterthwaite
The Shore Leave Committee and the Star Trek Association of Towson are saddened by the passing of our friend and fellow club member,
Mary K. Satterthwaite.
In the mid 1980s Mary K found herself in line at Shore Leave next to Cullen Satterthwaite. Not only did they both love Shore Leave but over time they discovered that they also loved each other. They married in 1991 and always held Shore Leave in their hearts because it had literally changed the course of both of their lives.
Over time they volunteered to work Guest Relations at Shore Leave, which they did for more than ten years. In 2010 Mary K became Co-Chair of Guest Relations for Shore Leave 32, a position that she held through Shore Leave 35. Mary K had a way of making people feel comfortable in her company and many of the actors that she worked with over the years wrote back afterwards to thank us for letting them work with her because she made their time so enjoyable.
Mary K lost her battle with cancer on October 30, 2013. She is survived by her husband Cullen and their two children, Samuel and Leira Satterthwaite. Her friends here at Shore Leave will miss her smile, laugh, and her warmth. It won't be the same without her.
In Memoriam: Ann C. Crispin
The Shore Leave Committee and the Star Trek Association of Towson are saddened by the passing of
author Ann C. Crispin. Ann was been a guest at Shore Leave for decades, and her workshops and contributions to panels
were always well attended and greatly appreciated. She has been a valuable mentor to writers at all levels and was
a co-founder of Writer Beware.
Ann C. Crispin passed away on September 6, 2013 at the age of 63.
